It’s the responsibility of Christians to pray for, rather than complain about, their nation, especially during times of trouble, evangelist Luis Palau said Thursday.
Addressing a live Web audience during Evangelism Prayer Day, the famed evangelist stressed the importance of intercession, or prayers to God on behalf of other people or nations.
“It seems to me that the Lord is telling us here ‘if your nation is in trouble, how about looking inward, stop insulting the king, stop insulting the president. Stop saying ‘I can’t stand him,’” Palau said.
“Let’s we, as Christians, if we pretend we are biblical Christians and we do, then we better take this seriously.”
