2 Chronicles 7:14: ...if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
During WWII, W. Tudor Pole, an English author, adventurer, and businessman campaigned for what came to be called "The Big Ben Silent Minute." The chiming of the Big Ben clock in London at 9:00 PM took about a minute. The chimes were broadcast each night on BBC radio at the beginning of the 9:00 news.
Pole suggested that the hearing of the chimes, either in person, or on the BBC should be accompanied by one minute of silent prayer for those who had been killed that day in battle as well as remembering all who had been killed in the war. Churchill supported the idea, which became known as the "Big Ben Movement."
I recently came across a website that is seeking One Minute of Prayer for the peace of Baghdad & protection of our troops.
Please participate and pass this along. Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have.
Together, we "CAN" make a difference!
