In The Shadow Of The Mountain

IDOK DEVOTION FOR THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009

We are adding Jarrod to our prayer list today. Please visit his web page

http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/jarrodbush

And we are adding Donna P.’s Dad. He has been battling diabetes for years. He has developed problems with a blood clot in one of his legs. They may have to remove his leg. She would really appreciate thoughts and prayers during this time.

And as school teachers finish up this 2008-2009 term they need and would appreciate our prayers.

Doug is home, doctor says he believes he got all the cancer and Gracey is doing great.

Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Now, today may you be filled with hope. Now, today may you have joy and peace because you believe that ABBA is FOR YOU today, not against you.

ABBA, there are all kinds of reasons and heartaches on this planet that apart from You Holy Spirit working within us would crush the hope right out of us. Don’t let that happen. Don’t let mountains of grief and hurt and fear and the unknown to loom and tower over Your Saints, help them hope TODAY. Help them to not put off hoping until they see the mountain budge a little bit but now today while it is firmly in place believe and receive Your joy and peace in the shadow of that mountain.

Thank You for the privilege of prayer that joins us to the work You are doing in and on behalf of Jarrod and Donna’s Dad. Thank You for Gracey’s easy procedure yesterday. Thank You that Doug is home; thank You for the removal of the cancer. We rest Doug’s recovery in Your Loving Hands. And we pray for School Teachers, one in particular, ABBA, but all of them too, asking for supernatural assistance as they pull things together to close out this school term; I pray they will know they are not alone and that You care about every detail and that You are FOR them today and always. You are for us always, not against us. And like the passage in Song of Solomon until the dawn breaks and the shadows flee away, we will rely on You because You are altogether lovely and in You there is no spot, no imperfection, no chance that You will stop loving us or allow any evil to defeat us or overtake us as we hope and abide in You.

Comfort and keep safe our IDOK Troops and minister I pray to every soul listed here and every soul who reads. Amen and amen.

Song of Solomon 4: 6 Until the day breaks

And the shadows flee away,

I will go my way to the mountain of myrrh

And to the hill of frankincense.

7 You are all fair, my love,

And there is no spot in You.

ABBA, I am posting this here in prayer as a daily prayer and I am praying as pure in motive as I know how today, asking that You by whatever ways and means You choose, see to the removal from office of every elected Official in Washington and all 50 States that is not sensitive to and is not inclined to work to preserve Judaeo-Christian values and the Constitution of this Nation in its Original Intent. Lord, I am so sorry that many (and thank You not all) offices of this Nation are filled with corrupt, reprobate-minded people who have no regard for You or Your Word and if I have done anything that has contributed to the election of these people, please forgive me and stop me from any further actions that will damage and bring this Nation to complete ruin. I pray Holy Spirit that You will stir the hearts and prayers of enough people to bring this Nation to repentance and will clean and cleanse the offices and the Officials of this Nation. Father God, please have mercy on us. Lord Jesus, clean Washington even as You did the Temple if need be. And Lord some weeks later since this prayer began we have word from one of those Alabama officials that he wants our prayers, that he is mindful of You, that he does love You and obviously he is well acquainted with Your Word. And ABBA I am so delighted and grateful for this man and for others like him, so for each of them (and You know who they are, Lord) we pray that You will anoint and empower them to stand firm and holy in these places of service You have given them and Lord please bring others alongside to stand with them and help them. And as he suggested move us to be involved in the political process with more than just our prayers according to the individual will You have for each of us. Again, Lord, thank You for this news, thank You for what You are doing. Amen and amen.
