Pastor James Ward of Insight Church in Illinois says that America’s future is not guaranteed.

Ward was speaking at America’s Pre-Election Online Prayer and Communion Church at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C.

“It is most unfortunate, and it really breaks my heart that in America, we are perishing today unnecessarily,” Ward said. “I believe with all my heart that God is calling America to not only turn but to return to Him to live and not die.

“You don’t have to die. You don’t have to perish unnecessarily,” he added.

Ward also shared that he believed that many Christians have stopped praying and that this moves Satan.

“Whenever God’s people stop praying, stop proclaiming and stop promoting ‘thy Kingdom come and thy will be done here on earth as it is in Heaven,’ Satan’s kingdom will come, and his will will be done on earth as it is in Hell in contrast to as it is in Heaven,” Ward said.

“We don’t have to live the way that we’re living under Hell’s dominion. Christ has made it possible so that the blessing of Abraham can come upon gentiles, any person … because God so loved the world,” he said.

Pastor Mark Daniel, of Focal Point Church in Orlando, also spoke at the Museum of the Bible event. He believes that 2020 has been an important reminder that it’s time for Christians to seek God.

“A heavenly alarm has sounded, and it is continuing to sound,” Daniel said. “I think the Church has abdicated our hope to a politician or to someone else, and we’re needing to return and say our hope is Jesus Christ.

“We say, ‘God come heal our land,’ but He’s saying, ‘I’m looking for you to respond, my people,’” he said. “We should not be trying to get back to normal. We should be looking for an urgency, a humbling to come upon us.”
