Readers Respond to 'Praying for America'

praying hands

Bill Robinson By Tuesday, 01 December 2020 10:49 AM EST Current | Bio | Archive

"I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day."

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

I've been humbled and grateful for all the reader responses to my recent column, "For Believers Only: Pray … Just Pray."

It buoyed my spirit and strengthened my heart to know that so many people in America pray … or, to be reminded of it.

In my email responses to readers, I included the question, "Is there anything I might pray on for you?" This is why there are some very personal prayer requests included here. (Please keep them coming!)

If you like to pray, here are just a few of hundreds:

Excellent!! I think everyone will be praying after that article. I'm surprised they let it through….abortion/satanic sacrament, people that want us wiped off the face of the earth…

I like the prayers for respect for the President, law enforcement, firefighters….and the point that we are not a racist nation despite what is told. There will always be racism, but I don't believe this country is run over by racism. And of course your own personal story. It is a nice touch that you told others to tell their stories. The editors probably like that since it gets people involved beyond just reading the articles.


Thank you for sharing your uplifting prayer and the answer to your own personal prayer. God's Glory is revealed through your witness, and I join you in your prayer for God to Bless America with Truth and Justice. May you continue to be a witness to God through your gift of writing. In Christ,


Thank you for this https://www.newsmax.com/billrobinson/prayer/2020/11/20/id/998009/

I agree with you, in Jesus name.


And also from this reader:

Wow, you replied!! That is amazing enough, but yes, if you can remember my husband and me in your prayers, we'd appreciate it.

We haven't been able to bear children, even though there is nothing physically wrong with us. And God hasn't put it on our hearts, to adopt. I know nothing is impossible for our Lord. God healed Mom of cancer "by His stripes" (Isa 53:4-5). Look what He did for you, and on Christmas Day, no less!!! And He's exposing the evil thief, will all that's going on in this election…. so it's nothing for Him to answer our children to bear children. Amen.

"Onward & Upward", indeed.


Dear Mr. Robinson,

I like you and millions of people on this planet believe in the power of prayer.

I pray that God in his grace will see fit to have President Trump re-elected as he so deserves. That those who stole the election by voter fraud be finally held accountable. For those who have done major crimes be finally prosecuted by the law. I am a proud American patriot of this wonderful USA.

How blessed to be born here and to honor the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

I am truly touched by the power of prayer that saved your life. May this power save the United States of America and not allow the radical left to destroy our country.

May God continue to bless you and all of your loved ones in this surreal time we all find ourselves living in.

Fondly and humbly,



You are exactly right about prayer.

My family has been praying aggressively against the enemies of freedom.

Please join us in praying through Psalms 5, 16 and 20 (I'm sure there are others to use as templates.)

Fact is God hates the unrepentant wicked, the liar, the thief and the murderer.

We have zero power to stop the extraordinary and coordinated mass cheating and information shutdown that is occurring in regards to our election.

Pray God will move against them. Pray that their wicked schemes will be exposed. Pray that like the massive Midian army (compared to as sand on the seashore) Gideon faced with his 300 men, that the massive enemy we face will turn on each other.

Read Judges 6 through 7 or 8

Who can stand before the Lord?

Thanks again for your message.

Pray, Rise, Work, Be Brave, Vote.

This could be our 1776 Bill.

Keep up the good work

A privilege to E chat and fellowship with you. I will look more for your columns on Newsmax.

A quote I revere "The Republic was not established by cowards, and cowards will not preserve it." Elmer Davis, American Journalist, Director of the U.S. Office of War Information. WW II

Best Regards Brother

Pray without ceasing 1 Thess 5:17



Thanks. Thanks for the thought that went into the prayer list items.

My wife and I thought, as we read one of the item, ("Pray that our children be protected like our own lives depend on it and allowed to attend school regularly and that school choice becomes the new friend to parents all over America."), that this might be modified somewhat to include "Pray that the anti-God, anti-America, and pro-communist educators and staff leave the school systems or become believing people of God through Christ's blood."


I am praying, & Believing!

"For there is nothing hidden that shall not be disclosed. Nor anything secret that shall not be known and come out in the open." Luke 8:17

"He frustrates the plans of schemers so the work of their hands will not succeed," Job 5:12

And also from this reader:

Thank you so much for replying to me I did not expect that. I am a strong believer, me and my husband. I know God will take care of us. We have seen a miracle similar to yours, only in our son who will 25 in December, but when he was 12 he was in bad shape from a bacterial infection in his blood and his kidneys shut down, he was on 24 hour dialysis and life support, well long story short we saw a miracle in that hospital. God not only brought him back from death but totally healed him. Within two weeks he was walking out of that hospital. So I know God will hear our prayers and I am so thankful for Godly men like you who love God and people. Let's continue to pray for our President Donald J. Trump, and for God to heal our land and bring unity to all Americans, in Jesus Name. I have used your prayer to help guide me and it has been such a blessing. J

Wishing you a very Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving!


Dear Mr. Robinson;

I wanted to thank you for the piece you wrote for Newsmax entitled, "For Believers Only: Pray".

Thank you for taking the time to write this and for sharing your testimony. I appreciated it very much and it touched me deeply. I will most certainly be praying for you and the President both.

Again, I thank you - this is what we should be about. I had lost that recently and your column helped to find my way back.

God bless you;

Your sister in Christ


Mr. Bill,

A response to my comments ... you must be from a different planet! I am honored to have had the chance to encourage your witness to the power of God.

I totally believe in the power of prayer even without the type of adversity you have personally experienced. I tend to carry around a lot of baggage (i.e. Max Lucado calls them "worries" in a book he wrote on Ps 23), but am trying to give them to Christ and not keep taking them back! So really, "pray for those who have not found the Hope in Christ through prayer" is my answer. My prayer for you: That God continues to Bless you, so that you may continue to be a Blessing to others!

Go with God and Serve the Lord,


It never ceases to amaze me how we can just be plugging along in our lives and all of a sudden … BAM! … Prayer makes a grand entrance.

"Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts."

Mother Teresa (1910-1997)
