We received this pre-release copy of Pray America Great directly from author Donica Hudson. Donica Hudson is an established voice in the Christian community and is an unabashed patriotic supporter of America.
This book was written in 2020, during a year of a global pandemic and a contentious election cycle. In her book, the author details what she and many others perceive as overt attacks on our nation and our way of life. In a logical and meaningful manner, the early chapters discuss how we, as a nation, came to this exceptional period in time.
The concept of spiritual warfare is described and how it applies to much of the discord and upheaval we are currently experiencing around the globe, and specifically here in America. Although we are seeing radical changes to our American culture and government, the actual battle against evil is raging in heavenly realms and not just on earth.
As the title of the book suggests, we can and should enter intentional, intercessory prayer for our country, our leaders, and each other. Specific prayer is suggested to aid in the battle against the various elements of evil being perpetrated on our nation, as detailed by the author. We are called to and are to be commissioned in that endeavor. The concept of Biblical covenant is discussed, especially how it relates to our call to prayerfully seek the Lord’s grace and mercy for our country. Throughout the book, an urgent call is made for us to pray that our country is healed. The author provides a prayer strategy to restore the foundations of this great nation.
