Why Pray?

Image may contain: cloud and sky, text that says '"WHY PRAY? Because America needs to hear from Heaven, not from Washington. We need to be healed of racial division, healed of greed, healed of selfishness! American needs to be healed of the political hatred that has been born in Washington, we need to be united again!"'

My heart is so heavy and burdened for the United States, actually for the world as a whole.
I do not know how to fight all of this in the physical, however I do know how to fight in the spirit.
I have felt for strongly since the beginning of the week that we are to pray together, particularly in our area.

2nd Chronicles 7:13-14

A Great Awakening is Needed

last days

Our situation is not yet hopeless, but it is quickly approaching that point.

Oh?   I’m supposed to be preaching “Positive Mental Attitude”?

Funny…That is NOT what God told me to preach.  I was instructed, as was every other preacher who was actually commissioned by God, to preach His Scriptural truths, not what man wants to hear. (Unless that man actually desires to hear from God.)

If you do not like it, then you may call “1-800- TELL GOD” and see what that gets you.

(Be forewarned: you might not like His response, but He is God; you ain’t.)

J.C. Ryle listed seven characteristics of the messengers during the Great Awakening of the eighteenth century:

  1. They taught the supremacy of Holy Scripture.
  2. They preached the total corruption of human nature.
  3. They taught that Christ’s death upon the cross was the only satisfaction for man’s sin.
  4. They preached the doctrine of justification by faith.
  5. They taught the universal necessity of heart conversion and new creation by the Holy Spirit.
  6. They spoke of God’s eternal hatred against sin and of God’s love for sinners.
  7. They preached that there was an inseparable connection between true faith and personal holiness.  They never allowed for a moment that any church membership or religious profession was the least bit of proof of a man being a Christian if he lived an ungodly life.

These awakeners continually cried, “No fruit, no grace.”

We must learn that God is holy.  If we are to experience the manifest presence of God’s glory; we must repent.  When Isaiah saw the glory of God in the Temple, he was driven to brokenness, confession, and repentance.  Too many in the West desire to know the manifest love of God without the manifest holiness of God.  We have lost the message of true repentance.  Now the church in the West is the sleeping Giant.  Alarms have been sounded but there seems to be no great or even general awakening; if it doesn’t begin soon the giant may die in its sleep.

Let us pray

Pray for America

America is in trouble.  It is time for believers in the Christ to stand up and take action to change the course of our nation.  The place to begin is prayer.  “The Lord was moved by the prayers for the land.” – 2nd Samuel 24:25

The first act of the U.S. Congress was George Washington, John Adams, John Jay, and others of the Founding Fathers praying in Jesus’ name and reading the Holy Bible.  Will you, are you willing, to help remove the lie of “Separation of Church and State” from our land and welcome God back into all our government?

Exodus 18:21 sets forth an example for us.  America’s founders warned us to choose only [persons] of high moral fiber for positions of public office.  Do not neglect 1st Timothy 2:1-4

“The spectacle of a nation praying is more awe-inspiring than the explosion of an atomic bomb.  The force of prayer is greater than any possible combination of man-controlled powers, because prayer is man’s greatest means of [harnessing] the infinite resources of God.” – J. Edgar Hoover

It is long past time to recover the great and powerful preaching of our founding era – a time when pastors did not fear to preach politics, resist tyranny, and founded their governments on the Holy bible.

The left doesn’t just dislike western values; they hate them.  To some that may sound a bit overboard but it is an observable fact.  Therefore, if you are a Christian you have no business being unequally yoked with the left.

Pray for 45

“America was born a Christian nation, America was born to exemplify that devotion to the elements of righteousness which are derived from the Holy Scriptures.” – Woodrow Wilson

I thank you God of Father Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for USA President #45 and his family. Lord, I ask You to continue to bless and protect them as they stand against the evil forces that would destroy America. Christians, now is the time to put on the whole armor of God and get in the fight for the soul of America. Christians throughout the world are counting on us to do it; God has given us the opportunity to do so; dystopia descends on us, even us, if we do not.
