Everyone must be a leader
By: Trish Brown
Almost eleven years ago, the United States and most of the wealthiest countries in the world, were brought to their knees as a result of the 9-11 attacks on the US.
Today, the US and other countries are still trying to steady themselves amidst a world economy that has made life difficult, and different.
The TPEPost.com has turned to one reason many in the world differ, and many in the world are the same, and that is whether or not they believe in God.
Even though it may not be the same God or the same religion, most religions use prayer to seek spiritual answers, and most practitioners of many religions do so through prayer.
So it is with that very dependence on prayer we ask: Who’s praying for America?
Anyone who has traveled via a commercial airline knows, if you are traveling with a small child, and the plane loses cabin pressure and the oxygen masks fall, you first place a mask on yourself and then the child.
America is the adult in the world, and if we don’t take care of ourselves first and our own first, the world will falter. That’s a pretty big burden.
Mother Teresa said, “Do not wait for leaders. Do it yourself, from one to another.”
How big a role does prayer play?
