Prayer Call 10.11.010

October 12, 2010 Leave a comment

On the Prayer Conference Call tonight, Pastor Pat Chen shared an interesting connection between the scripture and our historical past/future. The following is written on her behalf from the comments she shared.

“But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day” (Proverbs 3:18).

While reading from Proverbs 4:18 in her American Patriot’s Bible, she found this side note written along side the scripture.

“But the path of the just is like the shining sun…” Prov. 4:18
The Whole Hope of Human Progress
William Henry Seward (1801-1872), the Secretary of State under Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson who negotiated the purchase of Alaska from Russian, stated:
“I do not believe human society, including not merely a few persons in any state, but whole masses of men, ever have attained, or ever can attain, a high state of intelligence, virtue, security, liberty, or happiness without the Holy Scriptures; even the whole hope of human progress is suspended on the ever-growing influence of the Bible.”

It turns out that William Henry Seward may have once lived in the Hay Adams Hotel when it was a residential hotel. This is the very same facility where the FLMI ministry holds its annual prayer banquet. We will meet in this hotel once again for the 2011 Prayer Banquet as a kick-off to the Gatekeepers Worship and Prayer Summit, April 14-16, 2011.
May the sound of righteousness and a wholehearted respect and dependence on the Word of God once again be heard in Washington D.C. that we may attain the high state of intelligence, virtue, security, liberty and happiness to which Mr. Seward refers and to which we all aspire.

Respectfully submitted,
Sherry Gilmore

Note: There were callers from all over the nation praying together, including from the states of Virginia, Maryland, Washington D. C. area, Indiana, MIssissippi, Colorado, Michigan and California. The next call will be Monday, November 8, 2010.
