Abba, thank You for the morning; the sunshine is soothing and comforting to behold; thank You for the people who worked all night to restore electricity to many of us. Thank You for strength to cook and clean and be up and moving this day.
As I heard the men talking on Christian Talk Radio I am sorely tempted. Tempted to anger, tempted to frustration and even hopelessness but then there is You. Republicans and Democrats fighting and accomplishing little, vying and jockeying to feather their own nests; it is so wrong and it infuriates me. It makes me want to plait a whip and turn over their tables but wisdom and opportunity says that is not my place so I am here petitioning You for help; help for me to be holy in my thoughts, my words and my deeds and asking You to mess with these people; asking You to mess with elected officials individually and politically. I long to see You get their attention. I am so sorry for the evil that is going on here. I am so sorry that there is even a planned parenthood to fund or not fund. I would so love to see You shut all those places down. Is there anything I can do; we can do to help people not be afraid to do what is right? Fear, an emotion that gets us into so much trouble and grief. Help me be afraid of NOTHING but displeasing You. Help me stand in holy boldness and do what is right, right here where I am and everywhere You would be pleased to send me. Adonai, Holy Spirit, I am asking for laborers; prayer laborers-warriors, enough to change minds and hearts, enough to turn people from Satan to You.
This group, these Praying Together women, increase us I pray, increase prayers around America; increase the love, obedience and devotion of we your people and let us see You transform lives I pray – even our very own, each of us. Inspire and empower and move us to be willing to be conduits of Your Holy Spirit to see people rescued, saved from sin and the clutches of Satan. Do a work in our hearts so that we are not satisfied unless we are seeing people turn to faith in YOU. Adonai, bring again the fire of Your Early church to tell others that You save! You said You would pour out Your Spirit on sons and daughters, this daughter is asking for what You have for me, for each of us and if we are not ready yet please get us ready for Jesus sake. I love you LORD; help me love You more.
1 Samuel 2:1-3 (NKJV)
2 And Hannah prayed and said:
“My heart rejoices in the Lord;
My horn is exalted in the Lord.
I smile at my enemies,
Because I rejoice in Your salvation.
2 “No one is holy like the Lord,
For there is none besides You,
Nor is there any rock like our God.
3 “Talk no more so very proudly;
Let no arrogance come from your mouth,
For the Lord is the God of knowledge;
And by Him actions are weighed. source
