National Day of Prayer Every Day (Illinois Family Spotlight #313)

“Through prayer, we take responsible action. We repent and do things different.”

Monte Larrick asks Pastor Dan Haas what is prayer, the significance of it, and what Christians need to do in order to draw closer to God. Pastor Haas is the founder of A Future and A Hope Foundation.

A Future and A Hope Foundation was formed to bring change into hopeless situations. The mission of the Foundation is to empower the Church in urban communities to develop local solutions to the issues of violence reduction, assisting people with employment barriers to find and retain employment and poverty. These three issues present difficult problems in every major city across this nation.  They will not be solved just by a large Federal program. The Foundation believes that a ‘collective impact’ made by local leaders who coordinate and leverage local resources can most effectively reduce poverty, reduce violence, and address employment transition issues.

Larrick and Haas also discuss the importance of prayer in the battle for life:”Whether you are a Democrat or Republic, you ought to be concerned that we’re not killing children in the womb. You ought to face the reality that abortion is murder.”
