Overcoming Resistance

IDOK DEVOTION FOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 2008

Father, yesterday was a grand day but today is a slow start and I am finding this resistance is hard to overcome so I am coming to You in confession and asking for direction and deliverance. Some of our IDOKs may be experiencing the same thing this morning and so I pray for all of us to look to You, to fall in love with You again this morning and praise and bless You. Thank You Lord. This sits much better. You are Awesome! And this morning I am again asking You to supply peace and comfort to Bev and her Dad and all the family as they wait for You to glorify Yourself and give to each of them what is needed at this moment. And we are still asking for strength for the Burgess family and others who are grieving separation from one they love so much. And we pray for those who are disturbed by their own thought processes and we pray You will heal them; we pray they will LET You heal them. Please protect our IDOK Troops today; keep them safe in all ways and bring each of them home to family and friends at the appointed time; we pray for a successful conclusion to this war; we pray for the election of Your Choice for President. Father, it seems to me that so much is unfair in the system that is operating here and yet we KNOW You are bigger and greater than the system – Lord help us. This Nation is in grave need of Holy leadership and I am asking You to have mercy on us and bring Your Choice to the Presidency. We pray too for the Peace of Israel and especially for the Repentance of America. And most of all Lord, revive Your Church.

James 5:
15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months.
