The Stream’s Founder James Robison: ‘Don’t Sell the Importance of Prayer Short’

By James Robison Published on October 7, 2017

The Stream founder James Robison turns 74 years old this month. “I never dreamed, in this 70-year-span, that I would see such horrific acts being committed in America and around the world,” James says in his latest Facebook video. “We’ve got some tremendous obstacles right now to our future of peace and freedom.”

We think that we don’t have access to wisdom or understanding, he says. The answer is prayer. “Don’t sell the importance of prayer short,” James said. “Pray fervently, pray without ceasing. Trust God to do the impossible, but don’t tell him how to do it and who to use.” 

James urges us to pray for our nation’s leaders. “I believe that God has, in answer to prayer, raised up leadership that has the … fearlessness, tirelessness and determination not to play the game according to political correctness or to a manipulative, deceptive media….”

“I believe if [President Trump] hears truth and he hears wisdom I believe he’s going to move toward it.” The enemy will try to keep the president from hearing truth and wisdom , so how should we pray? James suggests this: “Don’t let any power on this earth cut our leaders and our president off from hearing the truth that we must hear in order to deal with the enemy of all truth and life.”

“Pray without ceasing.”
