Behind the demise of America is Satan. The devil is walking to and fro in the earth seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5:8) Paul stated we are in a spiritual war with the powers of evil. The devil is shrewd in carrying out his wicked plans. We are losing a generation of young people. God shapes the world by prayer. "The more praying there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil". — E.M. Bounds
"There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer." D.A.T. Pierson
