Tuesday’s Prayers for America (4/29/2014)

If you are a sports fan, then you have probably heard about the brouhaha involving Donald Sterling, the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers NBA Basketball team. Eighty-year old Sterling voiced some racist remarks to his girlfriend that were recorded and eventually aired on a gossip website. The recording went viral across the internet.

Athletes, politicians, sports writers, President Obama, Oprah, Spike Lee, NAACP, and so forth have weighed in on Sterling with rants and raves about his offensive remarks. The NBA will probably end up punishing Sterling.

His remarks were stupid, ignorant, and offensive, okay?

Here’s my question: how many of us have prayed for Donald Sterling?

Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses. (Proverbs 10:12)

My guess is that Sterling is not a born-again believer, but instead is a sinner heading to Hell. I certainly know that road well because I traveled on it until Jesus saved me on the same day I was going to commit suicide. The reason Jesus intervened in my life was that a Christian named Lillian Meiners interceded for me.

Today I prayed:

Lord, I pray we American believers are earnest and disciplined in our prayers so that we show deep love for others and that our love covers a multitude of sins. (Based on 1 Peter 4:7-8)

What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you?

Join with me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for America.

  1. This is just spot on for me, Mr. Larry. Thank you for helping us pray instead of weighing in on anything that happens around us. I’m reading in Revelation now and prayed from chpt 2:23, for us to hear what the Spirit is saying and repent.
    God bless you as you fast and pray!

  2. Debbie,

    We Christians have the power of life and death in our tongues. Sadly, we often make the wrong choice. God bless you as you listen to what the Spirit is saying to you.
