  1. After seeing most of not all were precious Obama appointees in his administration I am fearful and anxious at the thought of another 4 years of Obama. This administrations is an Obama administration by proxy. However, that’s all the more reason that we need to be in constant prayer. God can change hearts and minds. We need to be vigilant in prayer and let our leaders know where we stand on the issues.

  2. As I was reading the article and the choices Mr Biden was making for powerful positions in our country, I had a mix of emotions. Fear, anger, confusion.
    And then I heard a bird chirping outside. On a cold Wisconsin morning the chirp of a bird brought me back to the reality that God is in control. My assignment now is to pray for our country and for those in authority. I may need to ‘hold my nose’ as I pray but will do what the Bible says and pray.

    Amen! 3
  3. Seems to me that President Biden endeavored to check all the boxes when filling positions. This is nothing but identity politics. This phony hack is a wind-up doll being maneuvered by his party.

    Amen! 1
  4. I just want to thank you for doing this. It is very helpful and it seems could be very healing for many that are struggling with the outcome of the elections. It could help us as Christians, do what we are instructed to do: pray for those in ‘Authority’.

    Amen! 3
  5. MY THOUGHTS ON THESE PEOPLE? UGH. MAY OUR GOD WHO IS IN CHARGE OF EVERYTHING LEAD THESE PEOPLE TO HIMSELF BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE FOR THEM. THEY ARE ON THE PATH TO DOOMSDAY.
    THEY MAY NOT KNOW IT BUT IT IS TRUE.
    THE WORST OF THE WORST. BUT GOD IS ALWAYS THERE AND MAKES HIMSELF KNOWN TO ALL IN EVERYTHING AND IN EVERYWAY.
    SO I PRAY THEY FIND HIM AND SOON
    I DO NOT HATE THESE PEOPLE BUT VERY UNHAPPY THEY HAVE CHOSEN THIS PATH. GOD IS GOOD. MANY LIKE THEM HAVE CHANGED. SO THERE IS HOPE.

  6. I have simply prayed that all these people and the justices on the Supreme Court and the Majority Leader in the Senate and the Speaker and Whips in the House will all come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. I will not judge them nor pray for evil against them.

    Amen! 8
  7. As I scrolled through the following comments I was saddened to read so many negative remarks. I am not happy with the outcome in Washington, but this is a poor example of God’s people being the body of Christ. We are called to pray not whine. Father forgive us for not trusting You. Please remind us again to fix our eyes on things above and not on the things of earth. Help us to be salt and light in this dark time so that Your light would shine and Your glory seen. The persecuted church around the world has thrived and grown in the midst of hardships. Why should we be expected to do less? Thank You Father for life and breath as we strive to be examples Christlike attitudes and actions.

    Amen! 18
    1. Habbakuk is the best book to meditate on for this day and age. He encourages us because he was also a mere man with simple faith and child-like trust in Our Heavenly Father. He reminds us that we need to be on the watch waiting to see what the Lord has to say.

  8. Lord we continue to cry out for justice in this land and ask that the election fraud be overturned. Bring repentance to all these evil people who have aligned themselves against this nation to destroy the roots our Founding Fathers laid based on your word.

    Amen! 5
  9. Lord move on the hearts of each of these who are being thrust and trusted with great power. Being believers into their presence who will impact their choices and lives and cause them to live for You.

    Amen! 14
  10. Jesus said: Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Lk 10:19

    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
    Eph 6:12
    I pray that every Member of the Cabinets, and their members will fail when they attempt to put in any forms or laws that will hurt our country.

    That every bad or false idea or thought they come up with will fall apart and only ideas that will help keep our country safe and free will be considered to be used.
    I pray failure for every attempt to take Christianity and the Constitution out of our laws. And all attempts to solidify laws so that the Dems will always have control of the country will fail and those who put such things forth will lose their positions.

    That Biden (or any acting president) will never be able to declare that the United States is no longer a Christian country (as Obuma did).

    And all attempts to declare President Trump was never a legal President will also fail.

    No matter what they do, never let them take “IN GOD WE TRUST” off of our mottoes or money.
    Lord, let every prayer know and find things that are bad for the country be stopped by their prayers, and give them a special blessing for their love for our country, and You. AMEN.

    Amen! 17
  11. You probably won’t want to hear my thoughts on the fake president’s fake cabinet picks. Let’s just suffice it to say that Obama who ruined our country is essentially getting a 3rd term. Let’s begin impeachment proceedings!

    Amen! 8
    1. Marjorie Taylor Greene freshman Republican drew up articles of impeachment against Joe Biden one day after his Inauguration on January 21st. You can visit her .gov website for all the details.

      Amen! 10
  12. A bunch of losers that are wasting the taxpayers money and time. Same old swamp creatures, same old do nothing for the country results. Two words that best sum up these band of losers are unqualified and incompetent. Not going to benefit our country at all.

    Amen! 8
  13. I will pray but my thoughts are we have an Obama presidency again ..at least that’s their purpose..BUT GOD

    The Lord will keep bringing us around the mountain until we get it right..we never fail the test just keep taking it over.
    .I guess we all have alot of praying to do to change the course of our Nation…it is up to us to keep our eyes focused on the Lords word and plans and call that which is not as though it is…so Our Lord can change things…His eyes roam to and fro throughout the earth for the prayers of the righteous

    Amen! 23
  14. Does anyone know if Joe Biden has picked Corn Pop as one of his cabinet members? I heard he was a bad dude, that ran a bunch of bad boys.

    Thought I would add a little humor to help lighten the load.

    If you don’t know who Corn Pop is, just type in “Joe Biden and Corn Pop” in YouTube and get ready to laugh at Joe Biden’s gibberish.

    Keep praying for America, this is the man who has access to Nuclear Launch Codes. God please help us.

    Amen! 12
  15. Pray God’s Word and not your opinions or what your eyes see. Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the Lord; He guides it where He pleases. God’s plans for America prevail, and we pray in alignment with His thoughts.

    Amen! 31
  16. Each one of these men and women are created in the image of God. They are loved by God. They have value to God.

    And God’s word says that, “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordainance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he bereath not the sword in vain; for his the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. For this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour. Owe no man any thing, but to love one another; for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. Romans 13:1-8

    Amen! 11
  17. Lord help us! It’s like Obama is running everything from behind the scenes. Biden isn’t mentally capable so he’s just a puppet! This article does not bring me comfort.

    Amen! 9
  18. Oh and please let’s not forget “who” is really leading the “fray” the seeming “victory” of this hour….and please remember WHO unseated our “actual” enemy and gave us authority over “all” his power,it isn’t who we see, but who is
    manipulating the “strings”?
    Outcome, it is our’s for “IT IS WRITTEN”!!!

    Amen! 14
  19. I pray, literally that we cover them each and all with a continual fervent blanket of prayer. That our words not be shaped from despondency but the same fortitude and expectancy as when Abraham,Elijah and Moses prayed, unleased desire and request that shaped and reshaped. That established visible restraints in heaven and on this earth!
    We ARE the Body OF JESUS THE CHRIST of Nazareth, to THE GLORY OF GOD ALMIGHTY!
    We ARE ABLE, so let’s BE and DO!
    Dave Kubal, GOD BLESS YOU and each and every man, woman and child whom GOD has called and is calling and BE about GOD’S business in and on this earth!

    Amen! 29
  20. Lord, you know all the corruption and treason that has taken place in the pastdays, weeks, months and years. We call that evidence to the bench in the courts of heaven. We ask you to rule justly and bring forth judgment. Slam down your gavel for wickedness to be removed so righteousness can rule and reign. We call for the flipping of the tables and righteousness and integrity to reign in the land, in Jesus name amen

    Amen! 50
  21. A lot of Obama retreads in the picks. Also, a glaring example of the Democrats
    to ‘run’ a one sided view of what they think government should be.
    God help us all.
    Billy Raby

    Amen! 16
    1. Worse. Obama opened Pandora’s Box. The country grabbed the evil demons (and we witnessed the game) and Biden will be played by them. This country is in for a ride like never imagined. God has a plan. We have to be in the fight. It is not a new fight – just to the USA. HE will not forsake His people, we will feel like it sometimes. He has been preparing us for such a day as this. I just hope I remember the lessons. He will NOT forsake His people. He has given His Word and He is not a man that He can lie or go back on His Word. We are written on the palms of His Hands. HE WILL NOT FORSAKE HIS PEOPLE!

      Amen! 33
    1. Amen katlyn,God is in charge.however iam dissatisfied in President Biden,it’s Obama in office all over again.much prayer is needed as gross darkness covers this world.

      Amen! 16
    1. I love this Judith…..Isaiah 59 is (among) my favorites…especially the Lord’s conclusion. “As for Me, this is My covenant with them.” My Spirit who is on you, and My words that I have put in your mouth, will not depart from your mouth, or from the mouth of your children, or from the mouth of your children’s children, from now on and forever.” Thank you for jogging this in my memory.

      Amen! 9
    1. not happy about that. The Country was in the tubes for eight very long years. Only to be rescued with President Trump in four years he did wonder for America & the American people. God bless President Trump & his family & thank you for your grueling four years the left & the media put you through. I thank you.

      Amen! 32
  22. “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.” Romans 13:1

    I keep reminding myself of this scripture, and many others that are testimony after testimony of the faithfulness and goodness of God, writhed it was David boldly approaching Goliath… Daniel in the Lions den… The fiery furnace…. Esther… Noah…. and many others…. God does not forsake His people. PERIOD. He didn’t do it then and He won’t stop today for you and I, regardless of who the President and their cabinet members are.

    Amen! 56
    1. Amen katlyn,God is in charge.however iam dissatisfied in President Biden,it’s Obama in office all over again.much prayer is needed as gross darkness covers this world.

      Amen! 10
    2. We have to remember it appears that this election was stolen by the Democrats. Although the Lord knew this was going to happen but I don’t believe it is His will for our country. Not everything in this world that is occurring is God’s will. We have Satan has dominion over the unbelievers and he is the god of this world.
      2 Corinthians 4:44 Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

      Amen! 11
      1. I know this isn’t a debate but I would like to put a truth out there that I believe is biblical. God has given man a free will and he is not in control of every decision especially unbelievers he is only in control if you want to say it that way of Believers that will fully submit their will and purposes to Him. Although His Word will come to pass regardless of the enemy because we know who’s going to win in the end.

        Amen! 12
