Praying for America

Romans 1

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

25 They changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

via Romans 1 KJ21 – Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called – Bible Gateway.

ABBA, it is hard watching these passages of Your Word played out here in America. Please forgive and have mercy; please raise up some weeping Prophets as was Jeremiah; and others like Nehemiah and those with the meekness and boldness of JESUS our Savior to boldly preach Repentance and Salvation in JESUS alone. Please save America and please let me be one of Your servants to participate in a HOLY SPIRIT poured out revival and an awakening in America.

Think Again

I went visiting in Blog-land this morning. Stopped in to sit a spell with my friend, Leah at The Point. She encouraged me to pop over to Max Lucado’s election site and see what he had to say. So I did. And while I was there I signed the pledge to pray for America specifically for the next 40 days. You can join too.

And while visiting with Max the HOLY SPIRIT had something to say to me. And when I tell you perhaps a light bulb will come on for you too.

”…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

What does that say?
Does it say if the proprietors of the strip joints on Bourbon Street will humble themselves, pray, seek GOD’s FACE, and turn from their wicked ways GOD will heal this land?
Does it say if the homosexuals will?
Does it say if the abortion mill directors will?
Does it say if the inmates will?
Does it say if the politicians will?
Does it say if ‘Hollywood’ will?
Does it say if Obama will?

Does it say if the good ole boys (and girls) will?
Does it even say getting Obama and all his cohorts out of office will heal our land? (Don’t misunderstand. I want him and them out of office more than any persons ever before them!  BUT!)

NO!
No, it doesn’t!
So if you like me have been prone to think if all those listed above would just repent and turn to GOD, He would save America. Think again!

Now I am not saying a move of repentance in the above groups would not bring a wave of glory over this Nation. It would! And I’d be jubilant beyond myself to see it!!

But it is not up to them to save America!

It is up to us! 

ABBA said IF MY PEOPLE.

And who are ABBA’s people?

If you are His you know who you are.

So what’s it going to be, Sister – Brother?

”…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

If the Lampstand of America is removed; if America falls; if America is not healed — whose fault will it be?  Who will DADDY GOD hold accountable?

ABBA, thank You. Search my heart and reveal every wicked way in me, and by Your Power and Might it will be removed! ABBA, I want this land to be healed. I do not want to be a stumbling-block to that healing. Forgive me for pointing fingers. Forgive me for my own blindness. Do what only You can do in me I pray for JESUS sake. I pray for my sisters and my brothers to pray, to repent and see You heal this Land.

Blessings to you Dear Friends    +++

Remember YOU have the God-given RIGHT to do right in this wrong world!

SHINE

 

Yesterday when I was praying with a friend, it just popped out that ABBA is not finished with America.  I believe what I prayed! And I am encouraged! He is not finished with us! Our Lampstand has not yet been removed! So get out there, you and me, and SHINE. Get out there and be His Instruments of love, mercy, grace, forgiveness, correction, restoration, and salvation and take this Country back for the sake of the World! 

Revelation 2:4-6 New King James Version (NKJV)

4 Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.
5 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.
6 But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

via Revelation 2:4-6 NKJV – Nevertheless I have this against you, – Bible Gateway.

DADDY GOD, thank You that You have not yet removed our lampstand. Please don’t remove it. Please help us return to You, to do the first works for JESUS sake. Bless America, ABBA, with grace to repent and space to repent I pray. 

Blessings to you Dear Friends    +++

Remember YOU have the God-given RIGHT to do right in this wrong world!

 

Papers of Humility

Day 25 — Subtitled: Repentance

I John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. via 1 John 1 KJ21 – That which was from the beginning which – Bible Gateway.

A gift for which I am most thankful in the wee hours of the morning or any time it is received. It is a gift often left unopened.  Un-received.
I think I know why it takes so long to receive this gift.  It is wrapped in ‘papers’ of humility and pride has to bow to peel those wrappings back. Pride does not like to bow. Pride struggles long and hard before it utters those hated words: ‘I was wrong.  I have sinned. Please forgive me. ‘
Funny thing about it though, once they are uttered they are not so ugly anymore, they quickly turn from foul-tasting to sweet and freeing.

Repentance.
A beautiful gift and it’s not even Christmas yet. 🙂

Yeah, I ate too much carrot cake yesterday.  🙂
Hope you all had much thanksgiving yesterday and no I’m not Black Friday-ing today. But to those of you who are — you are brave and I wish you peace and safety and gift-buying success. Perhaps you will not even need to open the gift of repentance when you get home.  🙂
