I Prayed have prayed
Father, protect our nation. Let us find refuge in You. Give our government officials strength and wisdom to fight against all that is going on in the world.

The United States shouldn’t be enriching “a hostile regime” that is “configuring its military to kill Americans,” China analyst Gordon Chang said Monday.

In an interview on Fox News, Chang expressed support for a full decoupling of the U.S. economy from China, calling the move floated by President Trump an “absolutely a good idea.”

“China is configuring its military to kill Americans,” Chang told “Bill Hemmer Reports.”

“We shouldn’t be enriching a hostile regime with our trade and with our investment. I believe that decoupling is what we absolutely have to do especially this year.” . . .

Chang’s comments follow a recent Pentagon report suggesting that China is planning to double its stockpile of nuclear warheads in this decade — including those designed for ballistic missiles and that can reach the U.S. The report adds a time clock to Trump’s decision, Chang said.

“[President] Xi Jinping has been talking increasingly about this notion that China has a mandate of heaven to rule the world,” Chang explained. “They [believe that they] not only have the right to do it, they have the obligation to do it.

“I think China believes it needs to move fast and that means we’re going to see problems not in the 2030s, we’re going to see problems now.” . . .

— Gordon Chang

The Coming Collapse of China” author warned that the Chinese government is working fast to counter a “closing window of opportunity because of the problems in the economy, in the environment, demography.

“I think China believes it needs to move fast and that means we’re going to see problems not in the 2030s, we’re going to see problems now,” he emphasized.

Trump raised the possibility of severing ties with the Communist country during an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Steve Hilton last month.

“There has been no country that has ripped us off more than China…,” Trump said at the time. “We lose billions, hundreds of billions of dollars. We get nothing from China. Yes, we get some goods that we could produce ourselves….[but] we get nothing. All we do is lose money.”

As far as his landmark trade deal signed by both countries in January, Trump said the agreement is “longer the same to me” after their mishandling of the coronavirus and that “if they don’t treat us right,” he would “certainly” part ways with Beijing.

Father, I ask for wisdom for President Trump and his advisors as they make decisions regarding China. May we as a nation focus on you rather than fear. Some trust in horses and some in chariots but we trust on the name of the Lord our God. You alone can deliver us as we repent of evil and seek your face.

My Prayer TODAY …

The Reign of the Lord’s Anointed.
2 Why are the [a]nations in an uproar
And the peoples devising a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth take their stand
And the rulers take counsel together
Against the Lord and against His [b]Anointed, saying,
3 “Let us tear their fetters apart
And cast away their cords from us!”

4 He who [c]sits in the heavens laughs,
The Lord scoffs at them.
5 Then He will speak to them in His anger
And terrify them in His fury, saying,
6 “But as for Me, I have [d]installed My King
Upon Zion, My holy mountain.”

7 “I will surely tell of the [e]decree of the Lord:
He said to Me, ‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
8 ‘Ask of Me, and I will surely give the [f]nations as Your inheritance,
And the very ends of the earth as Your possession.
9 ‘You shall [g]break them with a [h]rod of iron,
You shall shatter them like [i]earthenware.’”

10 Now therefore, O kings, show discernment;
Take warning, O [j]judges of the earth.
11 [k]Worship the Lord with [l]reverence
And rejoice with trembling.
12 [m]Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way,
For His wrath may [n]soon be kindled.
How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!

Security of Those Who Trust in the Lord, and Insecurity of the Wicked.
A Psalm of David.
37 Do not fret because of evildoers,
Be not envious toward wrongdoers.
2 For they will wither quickly like the grass
And fade like the green herb.
3 Trust in the Lord and do good;
Dwell in the land and [a]cultivate faithfulness.
4 Delight yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light
And your judgment as the noonday.

7 [b]Rest in the Lord and wait [c]patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.
8 Cease from anger and forsake wrath;
Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing.
9 For evildoers will be cut off,
But those who wait for the Lord, they will inherit the land.
10 Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more;
And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there.
11 But the humble will inherit the land
And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity.

12 The wicked plots against the righteous
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
13 The Lord laughs at him,
For He sees his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn the sword and bent their bow
To cast down the afflicted and the needy,
To slay those who are upright in conduct.
15 Their sword will enter their own heart,
And their bows will be broken.

16 Better is the little of the righteous
Than the abundance of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked will be broken,
But the Lord sustains the righteous.
18 The Lord knows the days of the [d]blameless,
And their inheritance will be forever.
19 They will not be ashamed in the time of evil,
And in the days of famine they will have abundance.
20 But the wicked will perish;
And the enemies of the Lord will be like the [e]glory of the pastures,
They vanish—like smoke they vanish away.
21 The wicked borrows and does not pay back,
But the righteous is gracious and gives.
22 For those blessed by Him will inherit the land,
But those cursed by Him will be cut off.

23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.
24 When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong,
Because the Lord is the One [f]who holds his hand.
25 I have been young and now I am old,
Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken
Or his [g]descendants begging bread.
26 All day long he is gracious and lends,
And his [h]descendants are a blessing.

27 Depart from evil and do good,
[i]So you will abide forever.
28 For the Lord loves [j]justice
And does not forsake His godly ones;
They are preserved forever,
But the [k]descendants of the wicked will be cut off.
29 The righteous will inherit the land
And dwell in it forever.
30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
And his tongue speaks justice.
31 The law of his God is in his heart;
His steps do not slip.
32 The wicked spies upon the righteous
And seeks to kill him.
33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand
Or let him be condemned when he is judged.
34 Wait for the Lord and keep His way,
And He will exalt you to inherit the land;
When the wicked are cut off, you will see it.

35 I have seen a wicked, violent man
Spreading himself like a luxuriant [l]tree in its native soil.
36 Then [m]he passed away, and lo, he was no more;
I sought for him, but he could not be found.
37 Mark the [n]blameless man, and behold the upright;
For the man of peace will have a [o]posterity.
38 But transgressors will be altogether destroyed;
The [p]posterity of the wicked will be cut off.
39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
He is their strength in time of trouble.
40 The Lord helps them and delivers them;
He delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
Because they take refuge in Him.

G-d of Abraham, Isaac, Israel give out Leadership Wisdom and we know you decide who will arise and whom will fall! Forgive the USA for the way we have treated Israel during the Obama Administration and the Ignorance of people in our nation today! Thank you for a President Trump and Vice Michael Pence for their Love for Israel and continue to strengthen our relationship with Israel inspite of the opposition!

Lord Jesus, you are Sovereign, holy, Almighty, and you are worthy of praise! Please give our President and our leaders wisdom and discernment. Cause the enemy to fall into his own traps! Protect us and turn hearts toward you for your glory. In Your mighty name, Jesus, I pray. Amen.

God and Father of us all please be at work in opening the eyes of a heart to see how far we are from you now! As can be known by such little interest in such a clear warning of danger that this article gives us! It’s like we are showing same fear of it as we have been showing of the pandemic being too fearful to think anything of it!

Lord please continue to give President Trump and his advisors Your wisdom and a great desire to do Your will in all government and private decision making. May all decisions and all speech glorify You and further Your kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven. May Your salvation prevail in President Trump’s heart that he would glorify You, Lord. May our nation return to You, be restored by You and glorify You as Your Light and Your Salt. Lord, it is Your desire that none perish but all come to eternal life in You. Amen.

Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this article. Thank You that You Are the CREATOR-GOD. Nothing happen on this earth without You knowing it or agreeing to it. Nothing caught You by surprise.

Please forgive our sins as a nation. We are currently paying the price of chaos inside America itself.
Please unite America. Please disband and defund BLM and ANTIFA. Please protect all the patriots who love this country starting with President Trump and his administration. Please let President Trump win this election by the landslide (50 states) that will be a small proof that Baby Boomers have been awaken and they want to keep America as what You intended to be, A Nation Under God. Please allow President Trump to have good helps from Senate and House Rep (all Republicans) on his next 4 years. Please help Republicans to be united to support the elected President starting with George Bush. Please allow President Trump to elect 2-3 more Supreme Court Justices who are like Justice Kavanaugh, man after Your heart.
Please keep President Trump humble. Please help him to draw close to You for discernment and wisdom.

Please allow America as a country to abolish Abortion funded by Tax Payer Money. Please let us Christians live our life as close to You as possible so that we can be effective gentle loving SALT and LIGHT to this dark world. Evil will still be roaming in America and in the world as the Bible said because the Devil is its current ruler. However, we thank You for such knowledge that YOU ARE STILL IN CONTROL.
Therefore Christians should be confident and dare to stand for Your Value.

Please protect America from inside and outside attacks. Please let China know who is America’s protector.

Please ignite and mobilize Christians in China so that they can be influencers for the people around them. Let Jesus’ Love, Grace and Peace roam in China and so evident among Chinese Christians therefore even the CCP workers are amazed and wanting what the Love Grace and Peace that Chinese Christians are living by. Please protect the Chinese Christians in China from any harm physically and spiritually.
We are praying for the soul of President Xi, that You will send the hound of heaven to chase him. Let President Xi’s heart be uneasy and the only peace he can have is thru You. Give President Xi discernment and understanding that YOU ARE his creator. Please let President Xi lead China into cooperation with President Trump for religious freedom and help each other financially.

Your will be done, Father-God. In Jesus’ Name we pray and thank You. Amen.

    September 14, 2020

    Mighty God, I totally agree with this prayer. Your word tells us in Mathew 18:19, that if Two of us agree on earth on anything we ask for, it will be done for us by our Father in Heaven. I Believe it and declare it in Jesus Name!
