I Prayed have prayed
Reading Time: 5 minutes

We are living a modern-day version of “The Wizard of Oz” and we need to get off the yellow brick road.

The classic children’s story featured four primary characters all in a place of great need:

The cowardly lion.

The tin man with no heart.

The straw man with no brains.

And Dorothy who was desperately trying to get back home.

All believed if they just followed the “yellow brick road” they would reach a utopian society where the Wizard of Oz would make everything better. However, when they finally arrived, they realized it was all a farce, as eventually all Americans will who still believe that a utopian place of “progressivism” will achieve a wonderful world. It won’t because it can’t.

The first ten days of Biden have been a wake-up call. Although Biden warned about Executive Orders in March stating, “You can’t legislate by executive order unless you’re a dictator,” he has issued more than 25 already, plus another 14 or more memoranda and proclamations that have similar impact.

Our challenge is whether we are willing to admit what is happening and take hold of courage, heart, brains, and the ability to get back “home” (to the land of the free and home of the brave). It is still within our grasp if we are willing to press forward.

Revelation 21:7-8 tells us the rewards and dangers of our choices, “Those who overcome will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Let’s look closer at that verse. The word “overcome” means to “subdue or prevail to victory.” The overcomers were the ones who were obedient and faithful to God. We are encouraged to overcome and those who do are called “His children.”

But those who don’t are called cowardly (fearful and unbelieving), vile/abominable (polluted with crimes), murderers, sexually immoral, who practice magic arts, idolaters and all liars, who will be consigned to fiery lake of burning sulfur.

As the Bible teaches, to overcome we will need courage. Now, more than ever, we need to take courage.


We need courageous judges and attorneys. The attorneys who challenged the election have risked their reputations and licenses to bring election fraud to light. We needed, and still need, courageous judges who are willing to look at the substantial evidence of fraud. For the record,


We need courageous governors who will stand in their constitutional authority for their sovereign states and take back leadership when the federal government overreaches its power. President Trump continually tried to get governors to act for their states when they were attacked, burned, and destroyed by Antifa and BLM rioters. He refused to usurp authority to do what was their job to do.

The Tenth Amendment in our U.S. Constitution’s original Bill of Rights states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Governors have more authority than they realize. They are the ones responsible to call up the National Guard when needed, not the federal government. They have been delegated authority to protect their state’s citizens, resources, and jobs.

For example, now that Biden has chosen to stop building the border wall, which is certainly an action that may harm citizens in border states, governors can make the decision to continue the border wall in their areas using state money.

Governors, take courage and govern your state in the best interest of your constituents. Please don’t seek a federal bailout but instead figure out how to lead your state effectively. Intercessors, let us pray for each governor to have godly wisdom and to understand and exercise their authority to govern and help the people in their state effectively.


Many pastors have struggled with what to do regarding the issues of “separation of church and state” and COVID this past year. Pastors, I encourage you to remember your role as shepherd and help protect, teach, and encourage the sheep. This is a time for courage and when you have courage, you can impart courage.

Intercessors, let us pray courage for pastors to make decisions for the best interest of their congregation regardless of whether it will affect non-profit status. That they will be able to stand strong with God-given direction, insight, and inspiration in these confusing times to help dispel fear and confusion. This is, in fact, an opportunity for the Church to shine and stand strong in the face of adversity.

To every one of us

We each must ask ourselves have we been courageous or bowed to cowardice? Is faith or fear the driving force behind our decisions? Do we look to God first as our healer and provider? Do our actions testify to the Lordship of Christ in our lives?

Lord, give us courage to not go silent about the theft of the election, the overreach of government, illegal censorship and communistic “fact-checking.” Help us not grow weary in our fight to protect the life of the unborn or to be a nation that seeks after Him.

May the words of Revelation 21:7-8 be a reminder that courage is not just an option, but a necessity if we are to be called his children.

The opposite of cowardice is bravery. This is a call to those who will stand bravely both for the Word of God and for the freedoms of our nation. Revelation 12:11 says, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” May that be what is said of this generation in the books of history yet to be written.

Take courage. Let’s get off this yellow brick road and take hold of courage, renewed hearts, and discerning minds. Let’s take back our home—America with bravery to stand for freedom and for God. It just takes courage.


Lord, we ask that you would give our leaders courage to stand for righteousness and against wickedness. Let them be fearless in the face of evil and recognize that greater is He within them than he that is within the world.

Lord, we pray that you would strengthen those in office to see You and know You. We pray that pride and arrogance would bow along with corruption and rage. You said that the effectual fervent prayer of righteous men/women avails much. Lord, we pray that You would give us courage and give us faith, where we have had fear. Forgive us for putting more trust in worldly things than in You and help us to walk forward knowing that You will guide our path.

Pray for those in authority. Our Pastors need to stand&hear God’s voice. Heed Revelation’s word to the churches.

The documentary film called Absolute Proof is also available to be viewed on the video hosting website Rumble.

February 7, 2021

“Absolute proof” should be in every home. No one should be deceived after that film. However, it is being shut down everywhere, so many are not seeing it. The “silence” about this film is astounding! Thank you for YOUR courage to show it.
As an older woman, I can tell you that I have NEVER seen the fear that is in this country about Covid and about this new administration.I think Covid has so many terrified that it consumes them and they can’t “see” anything else! Some, in my family, are living their lives in such fear of Covid that they are oblivious to everything else. It’s astounding! Wisdom, common sense,discernment and good judgement are severely lacking in many homes.
We need to pray that the spirit of deception, that is over our country, would leave, in Jesus name.We need to pray Covid and the fear, will leave, in Jesus name. Too many think if they just wait, everything is going to go back to “normal.” I admit, I have taken our freedom and liberties for granted and I repent, I was wrong.
Many pastors refuse to talk about what is happening. They are so afraid they are going to offend someone or afraid of being censored that they are silent. Not to speak, is to speak. I hope they realize they will answer to Almighty God!
We need to pray like never before! God is, and will always be, in complete control! He is the maker of heaven and earth, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! He is our only hope. We have to WAKE UP!

February 7, 2021

Excellent, well-spoken and I love your choice of scriptures.
Dear fellow Christians, our mighty Lord is not going to beam us up out of this mess (don’t be passive or defeated). Instead, He is equipping the saints to powerfully meet this challenge, by His Holy Spirit, for our gain in understanding, and for His glory. The world is watching, wondering if there is a God who saves. Our answer is, “You bet there is!” We need to gather our own resolve about who God is and what He values. He established this America for His purposes and He is not going to surrender it to evil.
There is divine justice coming. Jesus, we praise and give You glory!

Mark Levin and Michael McConnell on the separation of church and state
Mark Levin and Michael McConnell on the separation of church and state

The phrase “separation of church and state” appears nowhere in the Constitution, and the Founding Fathers saw nothing wrong with having religion in American culture, according to an expert.

While Congress is prohibited from enacting a state religion, the founding document says nothing about banishing religion from the public square, Professor Michael McConnell told Mark Levin on “Life, Liberty & Levin.”

“The words ‘separation of church and state’ are not in the Constitution… I think this is a shorthand version of what the establishment clause means,” he added, noting the passage in the Constitution that reads, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

February 7, 2021

Please forgive me, but I really like the Berean’s (Biblical fact checkers)…

When I study the word, I try to gain understanding from the original languages, as it is within those original languages that lies the inspiration of God. That being said, I would like to offer the following:
The word “Overcometh,” in the Greek is the word “nikaō,” and in English means, “to conquer; to carry off the victory, come off victorious;” “when one is arraigned or goes to law, to win the case, maintain one’s cause;” “to prevail;” “to get the victory.” So, who would it be that “overcame?” There is only One who “Overcame,” and that would be, Jesus, alone. There is no other in all of history that has satisfied the requirements of the Law by their obedience. None.

In 2 Co 10:5 it says, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.” (Note that even in our thought life, the example is not about “our obedience,” but about the “obedience of Christ.”
If we are referred to as “overcomer’s” then, is it by “our obedience,” or the obedience of Christ? Our Salvation is a “gift,” (Eph 2:8). A gift is not earned, merited, or deserved. So, if we are overcomer’s, it is not by “our obedience” (works), but rather, by the obedience of Christ.

Then, the question is, “What can “we do” to do the work of God?” Fortunately, Jesus was asked that same question in John 6:28-29 by his disciples. And his answer to them? “This is the work of God, that you “believe” on him whom he hath sent.”

(Read his answer again.) What we “do.” (Our works, our obedience), according to Jesus, is


What is the requirement of John 3:16? Believing! What was it that the thief, next to Jesus on the cross, expressed that day? His “Belief in the Son of God!” And Jesus told him that very day he would be with him in Paradise.

So, in conclusion, our being an “overcomer,” is not by our “doing,” (our works), but by our “Believing.” An “overcomer” then, is not one that earns that title by their own obedience, but by the obedience of Christ. If you question that, then ask yourself, “When is it ever that anyone has overcome the enemy by their own power?” Never!

So, does the bible teach that we need courage to overcome? The answer is, again, no! Jesus taught that in weakness, he is strong.

[2Co 12:10 KJV] 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when “I am weak, then am I strong.” (emphasis mine).

So again, “How is it that we overcome?” By our doing? NO! It is by our “Believing! So, are we required to have our own courage? Absolutely not! It is the courage of Christ, that lives within the Spirit of every believer, that we all have access to through our “Deep conviction of the truth of Christ,” (The Greek definition for “Faith” (pistis).

How do we know this? Because we choose to believe, (2 Tim 1:7); “For God has not “given us” a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and a sound mind.” We were not given a “Spirit of cowardice” (deilia) meaning, “timidity, fearfulness, cowardice,” but one of soundness of mind, (our thinking, but not just random thoughts, or our own reasoning, but in agreement with the truth found in Christ), and moderation and self control.
So, I am all for praying! But, is it not true that God “Watches over his word to perform it?” (Jer 1:12) “Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.” The word “hasten” in Hebrew (šāquad), means, to wake, watch, awake, be alert.”

So, in our praying, according to the “gift” that we received, do we need to pray for courage? No! (“Why are we praying for something we have already been given?”) WE JUST NEED TO BELIEVE IN WHAT WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN! (Folks, this life we have is about Christ, and what he has accomplished, not us!) Do we need to pray for courage? Again No! We need to “Believe,” what we already have been given through Christ. Does anyone have fear? What is the answer? Perfect love casts out all fear, (1 John 4:18). Who is perfect love? JESUS! We have him living within each of us! What can we do? “Believe!” (Believe in the Son whom the Father hath sent.) (John 6:29)….

Do we want to see a miracle of this present situation turn around? What is the biblical remedy? KEEP OUR EYES FIXED ON JESUS! As in the example of Peter, it was when he kept his eyes on Jesus, and not the circumstances that were all around him, that the miraculous happened! (We should consider doing the same thing!)

Folks, our Lord knows exactly what is going on, and is he worthy of our trust? Absolutely! Is our Lord about to return for his bride? We are so very close! Then it should be that even in the midst of this storm that we are experiencing, that we should encourage each other, to keep our eyes on our only hope! Jesus! He is the one who has overcome death, hell, and the grave, and it is by his obedience on the cross, and our belief in his accomplished work, that we will be delivered in this storm. Spend time with him, in his word, and listen within to his still small voice that speaks to your heart. What you hear, from him, will never be in violation of his written word. Have hope, and be encouraged in him, and REST in your choice to trust in his promises. He has already promised us many things through his grace, and inexhaustible supply of his promises. And he is definitely worthy of our trust. Rest in your confidence and individual trust in what he alone has given each of us……

    I very much appreciate your comment Ed. I am currently reading a Jewish New Testament but also read from the HCSB and other translations. I love words. One of the most impacting scripture in this recent time( for me) is the one you quoted from John 6, Jesus replied, “This is the work of God–that you believe in the One He has sent.” and the other from Matthew 11, “All of you, take up My yoke and learn from Me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for yourselves.” I believe you nailed it. I agree, He overcame the world! We have His Word to keep us grounded in truth. Amen!

    February 7, 2021

    I agree with you. Many years back I learned that “rest” is a weapon, and a very effective one it is! …one that is not wielded by our hand, but by our believing and trusting in the work that Christ already finished on the cross. It’s already available to us. It is a choice we make, as it is already given and provided to His children, if we will but recognize it and then take it up and walk in it. I must choose daily to yoke up with Him, letting Him lead the direction, then trust and obey to follow and I have His rest. Matt 11:28-30

    I believe we as His children have been given many gifts, courage being just one, but we aren’t aware of them due to our not fully understanding His Word. Courage doesn’t sound like a gift to our ears, it sounds like something we have to “manufacture” or “do” to achieve/receive its effects in a situation. Jesus already provided all we need to walk this life. The hard part for us is to recognize the situation and then choosing to walk in the “being” of His courage. Yes, it will then require a ‘doing” response from us, but the first/correct response of recognizing He already did the heavy lifting and allows us to partake of following His lead, is so much more effective, satisfying, fulfilling and results in much more fruit!

I decree we have brave hearts like Joshua to be territorial takers for the kingdom of God, that we have the mind of Christ and the passionate hearts to follow Christ no matter what the cost. Lord show us if there are any idols in our lives and deliver us from evil and help us to mature into the spotless Bride that you desire. Help us to mature and seek the clean hands and pure heart principle and have radical obedience to you. In the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy’s house fell on one witch and the other one was melted with water. I bind all witchcraft and associated demons and loose the effectiveness of heaven with all its weapons including the courts of heaven, the cloud of witnesses, the hosts of heaven, the counsel of the Lord, the deputized ekklesia here on Earth working with heaven all directed by the Lord.The Lord Almightly has an unstoppable team and Lord help us to be team players in this synargy of the ages season. Who can stop the Lord Almighty?

February 6, 2021

Yes, Karen, once again I wholeheartedly agree with you, my sister in the Lord. We Americans don’t need anything from the Wizard of Oz. What we need comes only from the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. We need to see things for what they are. This awakening from complacency needs to start in the house of the Lord. Too many Christians in America are asleep in the Light. Then the non-believers also need to come alive. What we truly need in this nation, is a third Great Awakening. I cry out to Father god to be merciful to us, and to bring this to pass, in His way, and in His time. In Jesus’s name I pray.

I agree; our freedom is slowly diminishing into Socialism. We need to be bold against laws affecting our freedom and put God first in the way we
live as Americans.

How interesting! Not too long ago, I had the song “We’re off to see the wonderful wizard of Oz” going through my head and I wondered why, as the Lord often speaks to me through song. I discovered that the author had a serious problem with God and wanted to send the message that only we have the power to solve our problems, rather than receiving a new heart and mind, courage and directions for the way home from God.
Thanks for sharing, and may we all get off the “yellow road”!

Father, I thank You for righteous governors in our States. I pray You bring such courage and spiritual growth in them with their relationship with You to do their civic duties, governing in righteousness and justice in the fear of the Lord. I pray conviction and convincing of Your righteous will be upon them for the good of the United States of America – I ask that You grant those deceived by darkness the opportunity to repent – change their hearts like only You can by Your Spirit of truth. I pray You would instigate the removal of those who refuse to change. All these things I ask in Your mercy because I believe even judgment that is righteous is done by You in Your loving mercy. Direct our intercession in a new measure after Your heart, Father. You know how to enable us to love righteously like no other. Great is Thy faithfulness. I declare Your prodigals are aligned to come home to their original Father, You the Father of all spirits. Thank You for loving us so freely.

Father, I thank You for the mighty work You have been doing behind the scenes to expose the roots of where deception has tried to destroy the United States of America. Unity begins with Your Holy Spirit, we acknowledge You once again as our Source, not the world or government but You, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, I submit to You, our Head, in this battle against our nation. I believe and decree “Righteousness exalts the United States of America,” Righteousness exalts those who think they are blue, the blood of Jesus Christ is covering you with His finished work – so turn to Your godly roots in Him every State and our acquired territories – especially Washington, District of Christ. Father, I place the culmination of the things that You have begun to expose into Your hands and I ask that You would instill in each of us our part in standing with You and one another on the Rock, our firm foundation and revelation in Christ Jesus that the gates of hell will not prevail against. I believe You have called us, Your people, to recover it ALL. My faith and trust are in You – grace us to follow after You fearlessly, the strong spirit in each of us that sustains us in the time of trouble and pain. Shake off of us anything hindering our journey on this ancient path and stabilize us in Your joy that is our strength. Thank You, Lord Jesus for the joint seating we have with You in heavenly places, kept secure in You. I pray that Psalm 91 would be our strong mantra in these days of glory knowing we are not alone but because You are our Great Lover, Your angelic hosts have gathered to accompany us every step of the way and no foe can withstand us. In You we live victorious, move and have our eternal being. We love You and thank You for first loving us and pouring out Your giving love, flooding us with it by Your Spirit. Blessed be Your holy name forever.

the 1st step to involvement is what you Karen have had the courage to do! In having no fear of being called a “karen” for the hard truth of your article! the 2nd step is to help us contact others wanting to start a PAC(political action committee) to find and support godly leaders to elect! the 3rd and hardest step is supporting each other in the long hard sacrificial marathon race to election victory and then the even harder race of continuing to govern well! which ONLY happens by prayer and obeying the leading of God! Karen I really do praise God for your courage to tell us what we need to hear, and not what we want to hear! Such as the broad easy golden brick road we like so much has not worked for anyone in the past, except the elite leaders, and so we have assurance of the hard truth that it will not work for us either!

We MUST rise up with courage while there’s still time. It is still within our grasp if only we would press forward. Lord, help us ALL, including our Gov’t leaders and pastors, to rise up and stand for righteousness and against wickedness. Let us be fearless in he face of evil and recognize that greater is HE that is within us. I pray also that justice and righteousness will prevail. In Jesus precious and holy name, Amen.

February 6, 2021

Wow!! So True!
Much of the goal of the hardship over the past year is the call to awaken for each one of us. We can’t think someone else is going to take care of us. This is our home and God has assigned us to steward it, to take dominion and govern our land. Rise up, people of God. We have the ability, it’s Christ in us, the Hope of Glory!!

February 6, 2021

Praise you Father God, we trust in You. Holy Spirit, help us to be dillegent in praying those promises in Your Word,for complete fruition in our lives and in our nation. Jesus, thank you for your sacrifice on the cross, for you loved us even when we were not worthy of your love. You have given us the ressurection power within us to speak the life of God’s righteousness into the lives of the people of our government and the laws that are in our states. I’m in agreement with Karen’s prayer and pray all believers will pray daily and know His Word is Truth and in speaking it will be effective if we believe. We love and trust you Father God,
in Jesus name 🙏Amen

“Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain”… I have seen this over and over throughout the past 2 weeks in many ways. (Funny this piece comes out now on “The Wizard of Oz”!)
In prayer regarding this, I believe God is saying, “It does not matter what it ‘looks like’! You must look to me… straight up! Do not turn to the left or the right and certainly not behind!”
I can visualize the scene in the movie where the “wizard”, who we all know was just a man full of pride and the spirit of control, is panicking… spinning his wheels, frantically adjusting his machinery behind the curtain, all while the deep loud voice… his fake persona… told Dorothy and friends what to do. Remember? Perhaps that’s what is happening. The evil ones are spinning frantically right now. (And by the way… this is not just true in government; it is also true in everyday life.) They, too, know God is in control, or they wouldn’t be so dead set on pushing their agenda through. Even the demons trembled at God. (James 2:19) They know their time is short! This absolutely proves, without a doubt, that OUR GOD IS IN CONTROL! He is! Praise Him! He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow! Let us remember this as we go on FEARLESS and FULL FORCE… with our ARMOR ON into our God given purpose and calling whether it be government, business, church leadership or managing the home. This is the time, as the author says, to get “off the yellow brick road”… to “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain”! We have much work to do in the Spirit through prayer and contending AND in the natural through Godly and obedient action. Do not allow for the “world’s” distractions! Yes, we must be aware of what is happening here, but we ABSOLUTELY MUST focus ALL of our attention above… on the God in control, the God of this world, the God in Heaven, the God Who saves! Dorothy wanted to “go home”… let’s do what we have to do as followers of Christ so we can “go home” and receive our rewards! The rewards the Almighty has stored up for us! All this to HIS Glory and said in Jesus’s Holy and Mighty Name! Amen!

February 6, 2021

Father GOD it starts in our churches! We pray for our Pastors! Give them courage to preach the truth. To guide there flock, and not be restricted by the government with the tax exempt law! And GOD help us to get ready for the great revival that is coming! Hallelujah! Father GOD protect our country 🇺🇸 And give the true Patriots in our government wisdom, and bravery, and also (protection and there families). Guide the Governor of Texas give him wisdom to continue finishing the wall for all of our protection! In JESUS name. 🙏🇺🇸

      Totally agree!! The big mega churches and ministries have become to concern about being politically correct!

February 6, 2021

Excellent advice!! No more “yellow brick road”….right now we must not only unite in prayer but also in action: all of us need to be seeking local positions in government, from poll workers to school board members to mayoral positions!! No experience necessary! Let’s go Patriots, let’s join not only in prayer but in being the Lord’s Hands and Feet!!

    Karen Hardin
    February 6, 2021

    This is indeed the place to start. We have to be willing to get on school boards, run for city council, mayor, etc. Without godly leaders in place who will use godly wisdom to serve rather than the hijacking we see from some in govt, we will not see a turn around. We must get involved. Thanks for your comment.
