The speech was boring and uninspiring. Biden, and the Democrats, want to keep hate and anger going. He seems convinced that white people are racist and supremacists. Nothing of consequence was presented relative to the illegal alien issue. The answer, normal for Democrats, is to spend. I am old enough to remember when a million dollars was huge. We’ve skipped billions and today it is trillions.

“Everything will be free” and paid for by the rich touches the hearts and minds of many. It is the way politicians capture votes. The covid, or as I call it, plague is being used to foment fear and anger. Hate is being furthered by labeling whites, racists, and supremacists. He said we absolutely must have the vaccine to continue a newly defined normal life. Big brother!

Finally, he gave no credit to former President Donald J. Trump and his administration for anything. Biden claims that his administration received nothing but problems from Trump. So much so that Biden spent his early days in the white house canceling nearly every executive order introduced by President Trump.

Finally, it was sad to hear an old man who is having age issues. It showed. His 50 years as a politician is a good reason for term limits.

He declared war on the wrong people. He will pay dearly for fighting against the Almighty. If you think this is good then you will face the same judgment as Biden. He will wreak the economy, wreak the lives of small businesses, ruin the lives of thousands of good law enforcement officers,bring disasters on this land and then some. He basically said forget God, we the government is the Almighty One.
Biden and this whole woke culture is seriously going to wreak our relationship with God and the people it will effect the most are the children and grandchildren. His speech he gave is a clear violation of free speech for all. It is time to come back to the basics and repent as a nation for our grievous sins and make America great again. Come and give the Lord His due, let us have time to surrender our hearts to the Lord and obey His commands.

I just listened to Tim Scott. What a powerful speech. He was direct and clear and kind. Thank you for sharing and commenting on ‘truth’. May the blessing of the Lord continue on Tim and his placement as senator in S.C. I pray for protection and boldness.

Senator Scott is exactly what this country needs at this time. His rebuttal to President Biden’s speech was precision surgery. I watched the speech off of the IFAPray website and listened to it all.
I am a 79yr old white man, yet I could empathize with Senator Scott. Although my parents did not separate my father was a physically abusive alcoholic who squandered most of his paycheck.  It was only about 25 years ago that I realized what I grew up under was a spirit of poverty.
It was finally broken when I got drafted and was able to live up to my potential. What had sustained me was the prayers of my great-grandmother (who passed away while I was very young) and the prayers of a group called WCTU – Women’s Christian Temperance Union.  They started having classes for us about the 3rd or 4th grade and would teach us poems about the dangers of alcohol.  10 years ago I discerned that they were not only teaching the lessons, but were also covering us with intercessory prayer that still battles the generational curses from both sides of my family yet today same as Senator Scott’s Mother’s Prayers….

I didn’t watch the message delivered by “the vessel” of the evil one nor will I ever watch a message delivered by “the vessel” of satan. I choose not to pray “for” satan’s vessel, rather I choose to pray “AGAINST” satan’s vessel.

The vessel of satan is compromised, damaged, evil, corrupt and straight from the pits of hell. He stands for beliefs that are in “DIRECT” opposition to God’s beliefs as follows :
1. He believes in open, uncontrolled abortions.
2. He believes in same sex marriage.
3. He believes in transgenderism and bi-sexualism.
4. He believes in the LBGT organizations.
5. He opposes Israel.
6. He opposes Godly beliefs and is a blasphemer.
7. The Catholic Church will NOT serve him communion.
8. He steals, kills and destroys.
9. He has betrayed America. He is part of the Deep State. He wants to destroy “the fundamentals” of America. He wants to destroy America.
10. He is a pedophile. He preys on young girls by touching them inappropriately and smelling their hair.

This “vessel of satan” is an embarrassment to Christians, Patriots, veterans and America. As for respecting and submitting to leaders whom God has placed in authority, I refer NOT ONLY to Romans 13, but I also reference Ephesians 5: 22 to 25 as follows : Wives submit to your husbands as you do to the Lord. The husband is head of the wife as Christ is head of the church. Husbands love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her (the church).

God “does call” for submission to authorities. But NOT to just blatantly and blindly submit. The persons in authority are required to be godly, return love, respect and most importantly, be willing to give their self up for that submission which they are receiving. These qualities are NOT present in the current Washington DC administration. Before I get accused of misrepresentation of the scripture, please allow me to complete my thoughts.

God does not expect a wife to submit to a husband who is abusive, disrespectful, ungodly, unloving, evil or would not sacrifice himself for her. Likewise, how could a loving, compassionate and caring God expect HIS people to submit to persons in authority who are ungodly, evil, corrupt, certainly are NOT sacrificial and present themselves as a “vessel of satan”?? I don’t believe God would require HIS people to submit to an authority who is “a vessel of satan”. Please think about that question, and answer for yourself.

I realize this is my personal opinion, but the person representing the President of the United States was placed in authority “by man”, NOT by God. This person was placed in the President’s office through man’s dishonesty, fraud, cheating, voter manipulation and corruption.

I pray you will at least consider and ponder the above thoughts. Be discerning, be loving but above all be honest and seek God’s truth. 2Timothy 1: 7 – For God has NOT given us a spirit of fear; but of power, love and a sound mind.

Respectfully Submitted.
In HIS Grip,
Bill Thweatt

    I agree with everything you wrote. Thank you for all the clear details of what was not mentioned in his speech. I read most of the transcript and it certainly was written by someone other than the B who spoke it. I couldn’t stomach listening to him give it.
    The borders need to be closed. People are coming into this country bringing disease and drugs and working for the cartels and sex traffickers.
    We need to fight all of this with action as well as prayer and intercession. It is all so overwhelming it is hard to know what we can DO.
    I ask God for wisdom and leadership as to what people can do to bring change and stop socialistic and communist government from controlling our country.
    One of the best thing being done now is the AZ voting audit. I pray other states will do likewise. The results of the audit, the fraud and the rigging of the votes should have profound impact on what happens next with our country.
    May God protect the auditors, the workers, those observing, the cameras, and every detail of the process. May these auditors have eyes to see every detail of what transpired with the elections down to the minutest detail that could be as small as a pinhead.
    God, save our country. Stop the corruption. Arrest the guilty and bring justice. Clean up our government and remove the evildoers.
    Empower Your people to do what You call each of us to do. Above all, forgive us our sins, lead us to pray at all times without ceasing, and to give thanks in every situation.
    I send You all these prayers in the mighty name of Your Son Jesus. Amen.

      You are “right on target” with your comment about “We need to fight all of this with action as well as prayer and intercession.” The time has passed for Christians being complacent and sitting on the sidelines. Christians MUST now visibly and physically engage in the culture war!! Blessings and Praise God!!

Lord,
We ask that You heal our nation, so that we will be healthy enough and stable enough to honor Your Holy Will. We ask that You deliver our mind, heart, soul and spirit from the devil and and accept us into Your Holy Spirit. We repent if any disrespect we have brought our nation. We are very sorry. We ask that You forgive us for our sins. We ask this request as a nation. Please, give us Your Love. We are not worthy of anything without You, but,with your. Holy Spirit, we are worthy not everything. God bless our nation with this gift that can come from only You. Fill us with Your Holy Presence. Allow the Light of the true Salvation show us the way to You Father God. Give us the hope and assurance that we as a nation belongs to You and only You. Help our families, friends and live ones to come home to Your Holy Presence with a repentance soul. Help us to be strong and obedience and to always honor You. Allow the Almighty Holy Spirit bring us true calling to honor only You. Amen

It was VERY hard for me to watch this puppet show. As I watched I popped on ALL the lives streams of it in Youtube and saw in all of them more thumbs down than up by the thousands! Then some started to change because Youtube was cheating. They turned comments off so we could not speak! It is EVIL.

I watched a small portion on the feeble leaders speech. Sad!
I enjoyed Senator Scotts very well detailed, point by point. Thoughtful, responsible and powerfully spoken as a statesman in our nation. This man we can be proud of. Praying for his success and peoples minds to be altered to receive the truth, not just with a nod but with life changing action and resolve.

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle—I am speaking the truth in Christ and not lying— a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting;
1 Timothy 2:1-8

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.”

This is me Lord; I need your wisdom. This is for my community. This is also for my county, my state, my country, your whole planet and your church.

Thank you for the extraordinary wisdom you gave our Founding Fathers when they paused and prayed in that tiny church. Nor can we exist today without YOU, LORD. I thank you for your overwhelming generosity. In Jesus name, Amen.

Lord You are the King of kings and You are the Lord of lord’s. You are on the throne of this Nation. You raise up leaders and You take down leaders per Your perfect will. Isa. 53:1 “Who has believed the report of the Lord?” You are a Sovereign God of TRUTH.
Lord Your arm delivered Israel from Egypt. (Exodus 6:6, 2 Kings 17:36) We as a nation need Your redemption, Your signs and wonders and Your Holy Spirit over us.
Lord I pray for unity for the American people. (Psalm 133) I pray You render those who are full of deception, lies and selfish ambitions powerless. Open the hearts, eyes and minds of those deceived. Lord impart boldness into the Church to share the Gospel, to stand on Your TRUTH and Your Word, to be the light in a dark and decaying World. Jer. 29:12-14
Lord I pray for the Leadership of this Nation. I pray for a Damascus Road experience for those who claims to know you but the fruits in their actions and words do not testify to it. But Lord only You may Judge righteously. The fruit of the past few months of the Biden Administration has been destructive, deceiving, stirring up strife and causing loss of life of both Police Officers and civilians.The cause and affect of these actions bringing a spirit of confusion and bitterness. Oh Lord render Satan powerless from attacking us through our minds and sin nature.
Joe Biden I pray for Your Salvation. For your heart, soul and mind to see the TRUTH of Your actions. I pray that you will become as David who had a heart after God’s own heart. (1 Samuel 16:18). May you be BRAVE and a man of Valor. May God impart His wisdom of how to discern the good from evil and guide your heart and soul.
May repentance and revival break out in every Church, every follower of Jesus Christ and may You Lord please heal our Land. In Jesus name. Amen

Father in the name of Jesus, although Joe Biden was not my choice i thank you that several of His goals sounded very proAmerica, and very much like he took lessons from President Donald Trump. It seems sad that it took a flamboyant billionaire to Be the one to bring change to America after generations of corrupt politicians, and also that it took that breach on our capital to finally get their attention that middle America is frustrated and sick of political nonsense as usual pretending to care about us. It was great to read the transcript because quite honestly i could not bear to watch him or hear his voice, because of the corruption that was exposed yet swept under the rug. It was truly great to read about a career politician finally setting goals that can truly help America and finally make the uber rich elite pay their fair share and Father I pray that these goals and increasing quality paying jobs, encouraging more items made in America manifest into reality, not just remain empty promises. Father i thank you and ask You to bless Joe Biden with the wisdom and support needed to accomplish the great and noble goals for America that are intended to help our national economy, our families,schools, bring jobs, and pick up where President Trump left off to make America great. Father if there is any hypocritical spirit of wickedness in Joe Biden or the who’s who’s backing and prepping him to be nothing but lip service i pray that YOU would deal with them swiftly in a way that is just and will quickly tuen them around to your will and ways for America.

Father I did not vote for him but i see you allowed this and i look to you to do a good work through him as you can bless America regardless of who is president, and i trust you to do it in Jesus name Amen

Father as for the policies to protect gays and transgenders, i can only ask WWJD? What would Jesus say to these? Father the hate toward any human being any sinner by any Christian Seems so totally pharisetical and demonic, as Jesus clearly said “let those WITHOUT sin throw the first stone, so i pray you deal with the hate and intolerance of so many professing Christians i pray you deal strongly with THEM to understand Isaiah 58:9 Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’ “If you take away the yoke from your midst, The pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness.

and understand that their stone throwing is exactly what Jesus corrected the Pharisees for, Father you ate well able to deal witheveryone individually for our sin and i thank you for that and trust you to do it,

    Not sure who you were referring to but President Trump honored GOD every step of his presidency while Biden is the most demonic president to ever be in the white house! He never has honored GOD, the people of GOD, or the things of GOD in his public life. He has been refused communion by his Catholic church. He is pro lgbtq, pro abortion at any stage, pro communism even as China and Russia murder and lock up anyone that disagree with the government, and on and on…. My GOD tells me I will know him by his fruit! His fruit is rotten, and also an attempt to be a dictator which I bind in the Name of JESUS! FATHER GOD please open the eyes of YOUR children so that they will not be blind to the enemy or ignorant of satan’s devices in JESUS Name!

      And Nebuchadnezzar had no qualms about throwing three God-fearing youth in a firey furnace because of their allegance to their God yet GOD said of him:Jeremiah 26:7 And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him.
      Father i pray that your people would humbly read your word and obey it, stop pointing fingers and spewing hatred toward pagan leaders that you allow in authority and pagan sinners that need to see the love of Christ before they will turn to him and repent, i pray a strong anointing of the HOLY SPIRIT in the church to know how to speak s word in season and out of season and not judge by the seeing of their eyes and the hearing of their ears, or simply follow the pharisetical crowd, In Jesus name i receive these things for your glory in your church And in those who claim your name, and instead of pointing the finger take time to pray true salvation toward the pagan, the unsaved, untaught, and the rebellious. In Jesus name thank you for doing these things

Mr. Biden qualifies as the most audacious apostate that we have seen in our generation of those baptized in the catholic faith-the one, holy, universal and apostolic faith, not the secular and atheistic one that this phony President adheres to. How can a man pretend that he is loyal to his saviour Jesus Christ and then, with a stroke of a pen, bludgeon to death unborn children via abortion and condemn our nation to sodomy and peversion via his advocacy of LGBT “rights”-I have to gag when I write this acronym. Our Lord says very clearly, “you will know a tree by the fruit it yields; a rotten tree cannot bear good fruit and good tree cannot bear rotten fruit. By their fruits, you shall know them.” In closing, Saint James says in his epistle, “whoever is a lover of this world is a hater of God.” With Mr. Biden, let us add that he is lover of himself and his own inflated ego that precipates such an affinity for a world under the dominion of Satan.

Nothing but a liars marathon. I absolutely didn’t watch it.

Instead of listening to his rhetoric, please pray to God, who can make all the difference. God bless.

    Darlene, I had great hope for Tim Scott in the past. Yes, his rebuttal was wise, knowledgeable, and true. However, there is one thing about Tim Scott that causes me to question his ethics: He voted to certify the 2020 Fraudulent Election.

    If he believed there was fraud, he should not have voted to certify.

    If he believed there was NO fraud involved, I must question his judgement.

He spoke lies and deceit. He spoke of spending money the nation does not have on things we do not need. He sought to elevate racial and radical division rather than unity, he professed that women’s health and abortion are the same things (they are not, Mr. President). He spoke of passing bills that will usurp States Rights, he talked about increasing dis-insentives to working by relying on the government to become our new parent, he talked about the government raising our children which will lead to indoctrination from almost birth to age 20. This will serve to replace parental guidance and control. It will eliminate any values, not in strict compliance with the state. It was like the introduction to a futuristic dystopian movie when the living are soulless beings…dead and just don’t know it. Heavnly Father, we know we are only here for a little while and will be with you for eternity. Grant us the wisdom and courage to fight this foe with all of our might by your strength and bring justice in you holy name. Let us do your will not our will.

I pray for President Biden that the next time he attends Mass the Holy Spirit will arrest him as he sits in his pew and the voice of Jesus will speak to him, saying, “Joseph, Joseph! Why are you persecuting me.” I pray that Jesus would convict him of his blindness and, let him see, through the eyes of his heart, what Jesus sees when he looks at our nation and that the President would hear the cries of the millions of babies who were rejected by our nation. I pray that the President’s heart would be broken as Jesus’ heart is broken for this nation that was formed because of Him. I pray that the President would see, and viscerally feel, the evil he has perpetrated in his first 100 days, that he would be sorrowing in heart and fearful of eternal peril, and seek forgiveness.
I pray for Senator Scott the protection of the Holy Spirit and an unfailing wall of protection by the Lord’s Holy Angels around him, for he wears a heavy mantle as a Christian, as a black man and as leader of our nation. May the Lord encourage his heart as Senator Scott believes in and draws strength from the Lord, and may he shine Jesus’ light into the darkness that surrounds Washington, D C. and is spreading out across our nation and the world. A heavy mantle, indeed, but He who is in Senator Scott is able!

Simple… If you want to know what is really happening with the Dems/Leftist party and the corrupt Joe Biden admin. all one needs to do is read Peter Schweizer’s books- 1) “Secret Empires” revealing the money-laundering Biden family & other criminals; 2) “Profiles in Corruption” exposing numerous infamous Dems w/documented evidence; 3) “Clinton Cash” and how Bill & Killary have gotten away with MASSIVE corruption, exposing America to BAD foreign actors… especially China!

I believe this speech from “president” biden was nothing more than a socialist blueprint. This plan of his will bring down or cripple our economy and spending trillions of dollars more into further national debt. It’s like they want the people to place their trust in government rather than God. But I know where I am going to place My trust, and it’s not in this fickle and pathetic government.

Biden of course talked about racism again. Loved how Tim Scott said the US is NOT a racist nation. Scott’s speech was great. He reminded everyone the good President Trump did. Fake President Biden took credit for the vaccines. If it had not been for Trump, we would not have a vaccine.

Oh goodness! Pretty words for a man who supports abortion, calls everyone on the right “racist” especially if they’re white, and who has caused the massive SURGE of ILLEGAL immigrants charging our borders, and is a socialist in disguise. We DO NOT NEED MORE GOVERNMENT to take care of us! People need an education…yes, I agree with that but again at what cost? My husband & I put ourselves through school, first community college then university. We sacrificed to do that. Worked jobs that we didn’t like just to do that. My husband joined the military to serve this country and was rewarded with the GI Bill that helped us too. Why do we now have to pay for others to get schooling free?

Senator Scott is more presidential than our current president and more professional & trustworthy. Our president and his party and his inner circle do not want both sides to work together. They want it all. They only want their voice heard not those of us who have different viewpoints. America WAS a beautiful dream at one time but sadly it’s rapidly becoming just another leftist country that suppresses free speech and the freedoms our forefathers envisioned for us.

God fearing Americans know what’s going on. That’s why it’s so important to pray for courage and strength so that we can reach out to help others find the light that only Jesus Christ can bring to those who believe, receive, accept and trust in Him.

I called Sen Scott’s office and left a message of thanks for his Godly wisdom and communication skills.Thanks, Jodi, for the number. The political rhetoric of the dems wearies me. I am taking action at local and state levels with encouraging sign that we have officials who are “right on!” Here is an excerpt from our State Rep’s email to me: “..as I prepare for my Sunday school lesson, what a great surprise to learn someone is praying for me! I am truly grateful and humbled by your kindness. As Jesus instructed us to, I too pray for many of our leaders, whether I voted for them or not or agree with them. Through God even the coldest of hearts can be changed. America is still a great country but very much needs our prayers to help retain the many fundamental principals that helped form her.”

I read most of Biden’s speech, because the writer asked me to. It made me sick. I couldn’t finish it. He is a smooth liar, no matter who wrote this speech, it was filled with twists and half lies. I see many falling for it. Free money isn’t free. He called it a takeover of the capital, which had it’s problems, but no where near the riots we’ve seen in other cities. The narrative goes on. When he got to LGBTQ, I had enough. They are lying to our young people. I read an article on over 100 people who are hurt by this philosophy, in England, where children as young as four were given hormones. One is suing the British health care system. The father of lies is having a field day in our country and around the world. My daughter is coming to our church, because the one she and her husband attended went after BLM and were trying to atone for white guilt. Where was the part that we are all made in God’s image? At least 200 attended that church. Though the mature in Christ left much earlier than she did. My son in law is loyal, and did not want to abandon the church. We are living in a time of much evil, but we are here for such a time as this! I was worrying over my grandchildren and I heard a pastor say that God is giving our little one’s exactly what they need to be strong in this time. I agree. We must look to the Lord, where our help comes from.

I also know plenty of young people who grew up in church, who are not getting married because they get more money from welfare for their kids than they would if married. We are sick.

My husband and I listen to Biden for about 45 minutes that was all we could stand of it. It was boring and full of lies. Their hearts are so full of evil that they themselves can’t see the truth. Father God I pray for this Nation that you would remove the evil spirit that is over this nation and that revival would come to this nation. Father I ask your hand of protection over the children Born and Unborn in this nation, over the police officers who are under attack for just doing their job. Father oh how I pray that people everywhere would come to understand that you don’t look at the color of our skin, hair, and eyes, because you don’t look at us as we look at each other, you look at what’s in our heart’s, for what is inside us comes outfrom within. I thank you Father that you never sleep or slumber and nothing is hid from you. In Jesus Holy Name Amen

Because he has trouble telling the truth, I have trouble listening and watching him. I will continue to pray for our country to have a much more sensible leadership. Tim Scott on the other hand was the one I enjoyed watching and hearing him since he is a man of God.

    Amen. I am praying for Tim Scott. If Trump chooses to run again in 2024 I pray he will select Tim Scott as a running mate. On the other hand, if Trump chooses not to run, I think Tim Scott would be an excellent candidate to represent us in the 2024 election. He is a great speaker and, I believe, a true man of God.

If education is so important to Biden, he should speak out against the latest ‘woke’ policies of math being racist and the teaching of Critical Race Theory! Educators need to educate, not indoctrinate!

Dear Heavenly Father, I know I have been admonished several times by others to pray for this man and those around him, but I find that I can only pray for them to the point that they may yet repent their sins and confess to all that they did. Until then I believe no good can come from them, except that their continued evil actions may open the eyes of still more slumbering believers, as mine were by the evil events of the past year. Dear Lord, I confess I did not watch this false man’s speech, as I expect nothing from him and the dark powers to whom he serves as a front man. From what I have heard from other believers, the things he had to say were about I would have expected. Lord, I believe these wicked usurpers are but the greatest tumor of the cancer that is killing this nation. As it says in the book of Your prophet Daniel: “Many will be purified, cleansed, and refined by these trials. But the wicked will continue in their wickedness, and none of them will understand. Only those who are wise will know what it means” (Daniel 12:10 NLV). Lord I feel like You opened my eyes to their evil last summer, and the evil events of November 2020 did not surprise me at all because of your revelations. I know I am not alone. I feel literally half the country now truly sees what is going on, while the other half are the “wicked who will not understand” that Daniel spoke of for You. Lord thank you for the clarity you have given so many of us over the last year, and may we not forget the lessons and revelations You have given us. I have not felt it necessary to listen to closely to what these people say because I now already know full-well what to expect. Instead Lord, I pray people focus on You and what You have to say. These earthly powers and their dark spiritual overlords will not say anything that is right in Your sight, and I fear if we listen to them too much we might even be fooled by their deceptions. Truly they are masters of the bait and switch as well as vile doublespeak. Lord, we as a nation are now truly in the belly of the whale. May the nation as a whole wake up to what is going on and change direction. May the hesitant and “on the fence,” like Jonah, face the truth and accept Your mission despite fears and misgivings. Just as Jonah himself was surprised by the spiritual awakening and repentance of Nineveh, so too may we be surprised at what a truly awakened (not the false woke of deceived) America might look like. Yours is the power and the glory, and such a turn would be nothing for You to perform. I realize we are watching Your prophesy unfold Lord, and I confess and repent at the moments of fear, frustration, anger, and yes, even doubt, I sometimes feel, but it is important to confess these things as many other people who truly see what is happening feel these things as well. Let us all know that we are not alone; You are always with us, and there are more of us than our evil enemy wants us to know. Indeed, they are skillfully trying to make us feel alone and divided. Let us all find networks of Your believers, just as our ancestors had to hide in the catacombs and communicate through symbols like the fish. They were not alone and neither are we. Let us as Your servants begin communicating as never before. We must not seek unity with the forces of evil, which is what would now be necessary for all Americans to unite in the ways the false leaders speak of. Instead we must unify with fellow Christians and present a front that is monolithic and unassailable. The monolith of the evil alliance the political left has constructed is nothing but a house of cards and a new Tower of Babel (think of the many confused voices in their house), but Your believers can be a true monolith of strength, with foundations that go back to the moment You spoke and said “Let there be light!” I pray Lord, for I know many of Your houses have been corrupted and infected. Just yesterday I overheard people I know talking about how their churches were breaking up because of a pastor that has embraced the BLM and LBGT (or whatever it is) stance. I heard others talking about their churches splitting along racial lines. Lord, may these ministers and the Christians in their congregations go back to the basics of Your word and not listen to the confusing doublespeak of the wicked. May these infected congregations be purified and again made wise too. Indeed, Lord, by your command, may America again be a force and symbol of Your truth and good in this darkening world. May we stand on Your side of the line until the moment evil is truly vanquished as spoken of in Revelation. Many have debated whether or not America is even discussed in Your prophesies. I pray that it is by Your design, that this nation may be Your secret reserve in the coming time of troubles. Lord, please bless this nation, expose the evil, and awaken those trapped in the slumber of deceit. Lord may you look to America and once again say “Let there be light.” In Jesus precious name I pray dear Lord, Amen.

    What a blessed and powerful prayer!!! I come in full agreement!! I too did not watch Biden. Let us as true scriptural believers be set apart and not fall into temptation or deceit. Keep our eyes on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith! Let us take heed of Daniels warnings.

      Indeed a powerful prayer and all my thoughts exactly. I also did not watch his speech nor have I listened to his voice or heard anything he has to say since he falsely was sworn in. If not for reading all of these prayers and comments, I would not know anything. Not trying to bury my head in the sand but I committed to myself as of Nov.4th to not listen to any news. Never hear his evil, lying voice or anyone in his administration. I don’t even listen or watch local news because they are left wing and never tell the truth. No one in the media asks the right questions and even the more conservative stations like Fox, all they do is say how wrong, how outraged we as Americans should be, etc…yet nothing ever comes of it. No one is held accountable for crimes against humanity, treason and stealing a United States of America Presidential election. I’m sick of it! Yes, I continue to pray. But so , so sick and tired. I’ve never in my life thought I’d be witnessing such twisted thinking. Twisted minds and events. In order to never support the elite and those who try to shut us down, I also got off Facebook and will not return. Why should we support Zuckerberg? To sound off on with the couple hundred or so “friends” we have? He doesn’t deserve the support after all he’s done.

        I understand your frustration and applaud you for leaving FB. Sites like this one must become the new social media for those of us who would stand on the side of God’s word. Just as the Founding Fathers of this nation communicated to share information and bolster one another’s morale through a system they called the “Committees of Correspondence,” we too must all start communicating and networking more through multiple means. The left has long has their behind the scenes communication networks and they have used it quite effectively in the pursuit of evil. We must figure out ways to unite in prayer, praise, and mutual reassurance. It is time to become creative. What shall our new “Committees of Correspondence” be?

We did not watch Administrator Biden. I get physically sick to my stomach hearing all their lies. Plus knowing that he lost the election makes it so so hard. Satan is fighting hard but God is mightier and more powerful. We must keep our eyes on Jesus and pray that he intervenes-perhaps by revealing the truth in Arizona and more battleground states to follow. If you have not been listening to Dutch Sheets Give him 15, please do so. You will be encouraged. God is using Dutch to minister to His people. Log in to Dutchsheetministries.org. You will be blessed.

Sovereign and Mighty God,

Like many others, I could not expose my heart to the disappointment and frustration of watching Mr. Biden’s speech. I do pray for him and all those in authority in our country as well as those throughout the world. Oh how we fall short. We grasp at the temporal and ignore the eternal. We are proud, arrogant and self seeking. Nothing that is happening is a surprise. We are a country that has left behind our love and fear of You. We kill our unborn children, discard our vets and elderly and support the destruction of the family and marriage while remaining silent. What we are experiencing is a result of our own sin. Our culture is sick and we live with a Romans 1 mindset. Oh, BUT GOD…. You are greater than our sin. Greater than our failures and greater than the enemy who seeks to destroy us. You are Almighty God, Creator, Sustainer, Provider, All powerful and Everlasting! The One worthy of all Praise! For You hold nothing back from us…giving us Your only Son, Jesus! There is no greater gift we could receive. I pray that Mr. Biden and all those in his administration would come to know the fear of God and to seek Your wisdom and salvation through Jesus! I pray You would expose all deceit, deception and motives of those in power. That You would strengthen and encourage us to stand firm on Your Truth! Jesus warned that when we see these things to look up for our redemption draws near! (Luke 21:28). Maranatha, Lord Jesus please come quickly! In Your name

I watched with low expectations as Biden proclaimed the gospel of liberalism as if government has replaced God as our protector. And I listened to Senator Tim Scott tell us the truth about America, that we are not a racist country and we do not have to accept the liberal narrative, but fight back with the truth. I will pray for eyes to open and resist the media narrative, to be wise as serpents and with God’s gift of discernment be truth seekers.

I have not watched the speech. Thank you IFA for providing the transcript. I will read it & pray over it. I have been praying/interceding nearly every weekday since November 4, 2020 and often add fasting to those prayers. I know that God hears my weak prayers when I use scripture (His Will in written form) & do my best to be led by the Holy Spirit.

Yes, we are very much in a epic spiritual turning point in our land: either our country leans in to Awakening & Revival or we will become a communist/socialist/totalitarian government system that looks very much like Venezuela. But God is not done with us, believers! God has called all of us to be Navy Seals of prayer/intercession & godly nonviolent civil resistance in the spirit of Rev. Dr. MLK & the spirit of Patrick Henry.

I am teaching a Sunday School class on biblical worldviews based on the headlines in our world. I am emailing and calling my state rep & state senator & US Rep & US Sen & even putting myself on the White House “list” by emailing them. Let us do good deeds while there is still Light for the Glory of God & for the pleasure of Our Father in Heaven!

Father God, we humbly thank you for holding back as much of the Big Evil that you are holding back. We thank You that You continue to give America a 2nd chance, 3rd chance, 17th chance. Thank You Father for your Holy Spirit being at work in our nation: in California, in Oklahoma, in Nevada & in so many other places.

But Father we ask for more. We ask that Your Kingdom come to America. We ask that You open the eyes of unbelievers hearts to the Love in the Gospel message. We ask for Your People, the Church, to Wake Up. We ask for the “Walk Away Movement” people that have turned away from liberal Vane Imaginations to turn to You & to Jesus as their Lord. They are halfway there, Lord! Open their eyes & heart to Jesus!

Finally Lord, encourage your intercessors — show them as you showed Elisha that we have 10,000 warrior angels ready to do our bidding in the name of Jesus, at the sound of Your Word being turned into edicts & decrees & prayers of intercession, they stand ready to be OUR Navy Seals in the Spirit Land.

In Jesus name, Amen

My insight into Biden’s speech last evening is that Joe is a clone of liberal Hollywood actors who know nothing and create nothing, they just quote what someone we don’t even know who they are or who wrote the talking points for Biden… Biden is a corrupt political actor on the world stage for the corrupt Democrat Party and China Communist Party.

Given all the collective evidence I-President Joseph Biden [I – Illegitimate President]is an unconstitutional traitor sitting in our White House because he and his corrupt Democrat Party and their co-conspirators, the China Communist Party funders, and China’s bogus voting stealing and vote counting machines outright stole the 2020 general election! I see nothing redeeming about Biden’s speech…

I could not bring myself to watch, listen to lies, false accusations of White America and their hatred and racists attitudes and behavior for people of color. I confessed to the Lord my drawing back, but remain praying for our President and our country, I will continue to “fix my eyes upon Jesus” for in Him I find my rest and the direction for how to pray. I know we are ahead for a very time of unrest, but know in Him I will find the way to go. “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to Our God”. May God be with us and may we as the Church “arise and shine, for the GLORY of the Lord is upon us.”

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people morn.

FATHER GOD please deliver us from evil. Riots; abortions; the pandemic; over-run borders; lgbtq propaganda; black-on-black crime; shootings; wicked social media people; FBI storming innocent Americans homes for no legitimate reason; shutting down churches; schools teaching propaganda. Please FATHER GOD, deliver us from evil! Help us stand strong, pray, and Honor YOU in our lives! Nay though, in all these things we are more than conquerors through HIM that loved us!

I did watch the entire speech and found it to be full of deception. We must stand together in prayer over the foolishness this administration operates with. The encouraging words and prayers of both Dr. Carson and Secretary Pompeo beforehand on VotePrayStand were hopeful and insightful for focusing our petitions before the Father. Lets determine in our hearts and our calendars to take this call to prayer seriously and regularly for our families, and for strong godly values to be restored at every senior leadership level across our land. Lord-remind us to keep this lifted before you throughout this day, and again going forward as your Spirit prompts us.

I’m sorry I didn’t watch the speech. I don’t believe Biden wrote it. I also need to really pray that America will wake up. They are ensnared by the word free! That’s a hook in the jaw to lead one around and rule over them. I believe that God is going to shake this nation and hold accountable every leader that promised to serve the people. I believe that we must open our mouth and make our voices heard so that the herd doesn’t go astray. Our churches must stop looking at politics and look at God! Get His strength and then Get His strategy. Stand up! Don’t fear the voices that want to silence your voice. Father raise up a body of believers that will challenge the agenda of the radical left

According to the law of this land, the Constitution, the people have authority over our elected officials. Then we must come together and command them in the name of Jesus to do the will of the people. We have not exercised our spiritual authority over them. I’ve heard of no such group that is commanding our legislatures and other authorities to do our will. Could that be the problem? We are allowing antichrist to rule without opposition?

The country is heading down the path of socialism. The government gives free stuff to the people to further blind the people into a false hope. But God! When the enemy comes in like a flood (of unholy legislation), the Lord will lift up a standard (the battle cry). We are in a battle that is fought on our knees. Pray to bring down the corruption, and also raise up righteous leaders. It’s time to dig in deeper in prayer more than at any time in our history.

    Thank God! we can cast all our care on Him, because He cares for us.

    And, thank God for IFA and this network, assembling ourselves together under God, where no weapon formed against us can prosper.

    Rejoice in the Lord always!
