So, she handed me a printed copy of an email that you can fact-check by searching one of those fact-checker-type-sites. Truthorfiction.com has a thing or two to say about this one, and so does history: it was called the “Big Ben Silent Minute”.
The paper that my friend so excitedly gave me reads as follows:
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves & pray, & seek my face & turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, & will forgive their sin & will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
During WWII, there was an advisor to Churchill who organized a group of people to drop what they were doing every night at a prescribed hour for one minute, and to collectively pray for the safety of England, its people & peace. This had an amazing effect, as bombing stopped.
There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America. The USA & our citizens need prayer more than ever!
If you would like to participate: Each evening @ 9:00 pm EST, 8:00 pm Cent., 7:00 pm Mtn., 6:00 pm Pacific, STOP whatever you are doing & PRAY for one minute. PRAY for the safety of our country, our troops, our citizens, for peace in the world. PRAY for wisdom & courage for our leaders, & the up-coming election. PRAY that the Bible will remain the basis for the laws governing our land, & that Christianity will grow in the United States of America. If you know anyone who would like to participate, please pass this along.
Tell God how big your storm is; then remind the storm how big your GOD is!
Regardless of the fact-checkers' details, the premise is sound, & I believe the British were really onto something. So now is my friend. The “Big Ben Silent Minute” worked, friends. The chimes are tolling for us & the clock is ticking. How will we respond? Tomorrow night, 9:00, please join me.
