So Much Bigger Than Politics

January 25, 2012
About three months ago, I asked the people supporting my ministry in Salt Lake to pray for 100 new believers in Utah every time they see or hear the name, "Mitt Romney."

The response has far surpassed my expectations.  Now, not a week goes by that I don't get an e-mail or text message about how much people are praying and excited to do so.  Rather than getting overly involved in the faith debate about Romeny's LDS religion or the "Are Mormons Christians" arguments, they simply ask God to address the bigger issues by saving 100 more people in Utah.  And the beauty of it is this: the better Romney seems to do in the political arena, the more media he receives. Then as people see his name more often, the more they engage in prayer, asking God to intervene in the spiritual arena and change lost hearts of stone into living hearts of flesh. 

Regardless of how you may or may not vote, isn't the advancement of the Kingdom through the transformation of people's lives so much more important?  In light of the bigger picture, don't the debates, candidates, and polling numbers just seem kind of small?  Wouldn't you love your time, energy, and focus to be about something so much bigger, something so much more significant?

I thought I'd share this with you on (another of my ministries), but I'd also like to ask:  Will you join me in praying for 100 new Jesus-worshiping believers in Utah every time you see or hear the name, "Mitt Romney"?

If you're already praying this prayer thank you!  If God is calling you to support the ministry work in Utah in other ways, please don't hesitate to contact me, and together we can find ways for you to answer that call.

May God Bless you,
