Billions to pray about

In the past few minutes the $700,000,000,000 economic bailout passed the U.S. House of Representatives. This gives a vast amount of power and potential to the U.S. Treasury Department. Please pray for Henry Paulsen (U.S. Treasurer) and his staff as they will be making historic decisions in the coming days.

Also, pray that our nation becomes a nation at peace. We do not need to worry about our needs (Mt 6:25ff), but we have an obligation to focus our spending on those things that bring about God's kingdom (Mt 6:33). We have ceased to rest in God's provision and pursued our own peace through the accumulation of worldly possessions. This pursuit of the world has eroded the soul of American ingenuity and hard-work. It has probably costs the spiritual souls of many as well.
