ARE WE PRAYING? I certainly hope so! Despite the hustle and bustle of this season, we ought to be grateful for every blessing we receive each day. Remembering that there are many enemies (both physically and spiritually) who are furious and angered by the joy and freedom we enjoy and would like to steal, kill and destroy the works of the Lord in this country. I hope that in the midst of our busyness, we take the time to thank and bless the Lord for His protection, provision and leading in this country. For the life of every man and women whom He uses to guard this nation from eminent danger. For the military and law enforcers who honestly and faithfully serve and uphold the law of the land. To the men and women in the political arena who fight against the demonic agenda of death (Abortion, Sodomy, Pedophilia/Pizza Gate, Racial Division/Tension, Media Lies/Manipulation, Rebellion, Persecution of Christians, Support of Radical Terrorism, Satanism and so much more) as promoted by the current leadership. To the voices of Pastors and Preachers who tirelessly speak in behalf of the entire Truth of the Gospel; refusing to conform to political correctness and allowing fame and selfish gain to rule their hearts and deceive their congregation. For every believer who go outside the four walls of their Church to share the Gospel and represent Christ in their communities either to help those who are in need or to fight for the rights of those who cannot speak for themselves. And to those who come together to pray---simple men and women--- kneeling, praying and pleading to God for His intervention in our nation. Every believer has a part in God's kingdom here on earth. Nobody's more important than the other. Each one is significant in the eyes of the Lord. Whatever we are doing and no matter where we are, when we think of the freedom and blessings God set forth upon this country---PRAY! When we hear alarming news, PRAY and don't allow fear to dominate your life. You see, when we call upon the Lord, we are acknowledging the fact that He is Sovereign and therefore have complete control of everything that unfolds. Christ in us is the evidence of God's love for us! In Him, we are sure that the Father hears our prayers and has our best interest always. Leaving you with the following verses to encourage you to trust in the Lord and pray continuously.
"Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowlerʼs snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror by night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” (Psalm 91:1-16)
