Are you struggling to make sense of everything going on? If so, you are not alone.

We want to know how you are processing the events swirling in our nation and in the world. We are opening up the comments section below for you to share your opinion, feelings, prayers. We invite you to interact as a community of praying believers–we are convinced that we can learn from each other and from what the Lord is showing each other.

We looked for verses about community and found this encouragement Peter shared with the early Church who were suffering for Christ:

To sum up, you should all be of one mind living like brothers with true love and sympathy for each other, generous and courteous at all times. Never pay back a bad turn with a bad turn or an insult with another insult, but on the contrary pay back with good. For this is your calling—to do good and one day to inherit all the goodness of God. For: ‘He who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking guile: let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayers; but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil’. (1 Pt 3:8 PHILLIPS)

I remember the gist of a story Corrie Ten Boom told. She said her father never gave her the ticket for the train until just before it left the station. She likened her experience to our walk with God. We should not worry or be anxious about anything. Instead we look to Him, and He knows what we need for the journey. When its time comes, He provides for us.

I pray for the church to be awake and aware of the journey ahead of us but not to be anxious about it. We cast all our cares on You, Father, knowing You care for us. We have no fear; terror is far from us because we are the children of the living God. As we walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh, we are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ our Lord. You give courage to the weak and strength to the faltering. Our provision is in Your hand. You’ve already lived in our flesh and have overcome; so the victory is ours in Your Name. Amen.

What goes around comes around. Biden and the whole family of gangsters will pay. In time. They have cost to many to much. God will see that they receive their full due.
This country was founded by very religious people under as stated in our founding documents. Escaping the
king of England and others. They gave up a lot. I think it’s time we go back to our roots and do a little more praying. Put god back in our schools and our daily life. My husband & I sent all 4 of our children to church sponsered schools. They received a good education and still don’t always go to church.
Church just isn’t a part of the family like it used to be. No group activities, no happy musicals and I could go on. Say an extra prayer for our country and our fellow man tonight.

I am very nervous, I try hard not to be but even though I do not watch the news anymore of any kind, even local I have turned off it is all seems it is just depressing to me and I don’t need that. I read a lot of websites and feel I get a better idea of what is going on than if I let someone tell me junk news. I think about my Dad and I know that if he was alive today he would be crying at what has happened, so it is better he is not here to endure it.
I see what is going on and know that the bad things that are happening are also going to affect those everyday people who voted for Biden, they may have been blinded by the hatred in the media for Trump and really have not sought out what is really truth vs facts. The media has become the worst enemy of the people because they omit what is really happening and want to give you a lot of misleading information that causes people to think the worst especially about Trump and his supporters. Then they have the Fakebook and Twitter people who are shutting down anything factual, this is really an information blackout and I know that is intentional, just as in communist countries, it is such a shame that it has come down to this and our leaders have allowed these people to abuse their power and not hold them to account.
I hope and pray that those that did vote for Biden will see when things begin to affect their pocketbook and way of life that the Dems are dangerous and want to control every aspect of your life. All Trump wanted was to set us free and unshackle us and that was why the power in Washington hates him so much, he threw back the veil of secrecy and let everyone see if they would look at how awful things really are there.
I think we need to continue to pray for Trump and his family it appears they will never leave him alone, they are so afraid of him and those of us who voted for him.

Continually coming to grips with my own failures and praying for His Truth in my life and reflection back to the Kingdom. Persevering in Kingdom work to free captives from strongholds of iniquity through prayer and if led, deliverance by the authority we have from King Jesus.

As born again Christians we must stand strong and in faith. Our God delivered the Israelites from the Egyptians and He will deliver us from our enemy too. Look to the modern day prophets and listen to what they are saying. The Word says, :Surely the Lord does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants, the Prophets.” Amos 3:7 In II Chronicles 20:20 It says, ” Believe His prophets and you will prosper. In I Thessalonians 5:20 God says, “Do not despise, reject and scorn prophesies” as long as it lines up with God’s Word. God’s heart is revival and He will do whatever it takes to bring that to pass. The prophets have told us we are being shaken because God is exposing all the corruption in our government. The longer He delays, the more corruption and lies will be exposed. Our job is never quit, give up, and cave. Our job is to “fight the good fight of faith. I Timothy 6:12 The reason the enemy keeps winning is we need to be one in mind, Spirt, and deed. We must watch our tongues. Decree the Word like in Job 22:28. No matter what they try to do to me, I will not bow to Communism, Socialism, or Marxism. Many millennials voted for this but they have no idea what it is and how they will live if our country turns this way. God loves our country and He will never turn it over to the enemy. We must pray “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on this earth, just like it is in Heaven. I believe we are going to witness something so miraculous because man is not going to do it but God is! God says He will fight for us and we are to STAND STILL AND SEE THE SALVATION OF OUR LORD. Exodus 14:13

I am terrified of the events unfolding in our country since the election and the tyranny used in the name of a virus no more harmful than a cold or flu. The vaccine is now being pushed and is experimental. It should not be used on the public. I ask for prayers right now for a case that is being brought up to allow all citizens to opt out of this vaccine. I fear for our lives. I wish more people would see how us being muzzled is tyrannical and abusive to our children, an entire generation who is learning to live muzzled. This is terrifying yet so many people DO NOT SEE. Justice has not been served by the murderers holding high level positions who are not held accountable to the law and Constitution. I am terrified and need strength to endure this. I fear what is to come. I pray continuously for deliverance. I feel very alone in CA where so many people have seemingly willingly embraced communism and tyranny.

    Dear Jean; I went through what you’re experiencing myself, so I understand. It is so easy to become terrified over current circumstances. I bore this fear for several months until I realized I was doubting that God is sovereign and still in control of everything that is happening. There are so many Scripture verses that speak to what we are experiencing: “In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God concerning you in Christ Jesus.” “Don’t be anxious about tomorrow, because each day has enough troubles of its own..” (my paraphrase). “Commit thy way unto God and He shall bring it to pass.” In fact Psalm 37 is a wonderful Psalm to read often, because it is so encouraging. One thing I’ve learned is, this broken world, and its troubles are making people more open to hearing the Gospel, and more likely to put their trust in Him. I will be praying for you.

    I meditate on Exodus 14 because I know God will deliver us. He has always been there from the beginning and will be through the end until his return. Keep the faith pray without ceasing for God’s truth to be revealed against this evil. Pray for hearts and minds to be open to hear God’s word. Let God’s light shine through us in love and compassion for those that are lost. Only God’s love can give us true peace and happiness. God is leading us to where he needs us to be to reawaken his people who have been asleep for to long. God is calling for true repentance upon his children. Praying for the lies of illusions that all people will awaken to come out and hear God calling them. 2 Chronicles 7:14

How I’m handling or responding to world events: Praying, reading scripture and focusing on God’s sovereignty and faithfulness, praising God and having confidence in Him and being thankful. Also trying to express the gospel as often as possible. I think all people who are praying are doing the same things.

I am encouraged. God is not finished. Since Benghazi I have prayed for truth to be revealed. Perhaps I am naïve but I had no idea our beautiful democracy was so corrupt. I’ve been focusing on government but perhaps God wants us to see the truth about Big Tech & Hollywood’s power to control even elections. The Media’s power and the evil we have seen exposed in America is incredible. Isn’t it good that we have seen many of our deepest weaknesses?

Until we admit our 63 million babies are still crying out across our land, how can we be at peace? How do you think they would have voted? We are panicked now with the 400,000 Virus Deaths, but we are still numb to 63,ooo,ooo human deaths from our 5 decades of abortion. I bought into that lie in 1973 when Baal and Molech reared their heads here, did you?

Imagine! We have killed 3 times as many voters every year as this Covid-19 Virus killed in only one year. More African American babies have been killed by abortion than the entire US population of African Americans in the 1970 census. I pray we get new prescription glasses in America.

Our very first vocal & openly anti-abortion president did not even have enough backing to stop the elimination of our tiny American citizens. Father, please let us be the solutions not part of the problems You see in America. Please give us insight and use each of us as You used our ancestors.

I have a personal request. My name is Stephen. My wife has left me and is living with another man. It broke my heart and caused me more pain than I thought possible to bear. I thought I was going to die. She has, now, hired a lawyer and wants a divorce. I just turned 70. I still love her. Not only was she my wife. She was my best friend. Please pray for me. Thank you and God Bless you for your compassion and prayers. Stephen

    I am so sorry you are broken-hearted. God does have a special place for you,
    next to His Sacred Heart. It is very difficult at this time to bear the pain
    you are feeling…but God has given you the strength to write your note reach-
    ing out for help. I hope you have good health, so this doesn’t cause you to die,
    even though I can understand why you would want to. You sound like a very nice
    and soft-hearted man. When you have given yourself ample time to heal and feel
    you are ready, there are many places you can go to socialize. Library/coffee shops,
    groups/bible study, church singles groups, health clubs, senior group settings,
    park walking paths.etc. I have already prayed for you, so I hope it helps. I
    will include you in my prayer list for awhile. I wish you all the best. When
    the time is right, God may have a surprise for you. May God Bless You.

    As one who has been through these things, they almost always come back. My advice would be to pray as much as possible and focus on the love of God and trust in him that things will be okay, no matter what. You need time to heal whether she comes back or not. You need to recover and get strong so that you can forgive her, whether she comes back or not. Trust God for your entire future. Jesus needs to be your best friend now. That is his place in your life anyway, with no one in between. I pray God will comfort you and draw you close. Trust that you already lack nothing. He does not withhold any good thing from you. It’s hard to understand, but it’s the truth. You will emerge from this stronger, happier and closer to God. His love for you is more perfect and greater than anything here on earth. God bless you. You have a bright future, in Jesus name. AMEN

It is so very hard and scary as we see all the big black books in the oval office and the new President one by one opening them up for his signature on executive actions. Let us pray for our Rep. Reps and Sen’s to work hard and not just roll over and give in. Let us contact them in kindness to share our viewpoints and urge them to stand up to things that are coming up that would keep moving us to the Left. Things that would tear away our freedoms we hold dear and our Constitution. We must keep praying to our Great Lord. Corporate prayer is powerful but even begin to pray God would place a one on one prayer time with yourself and another. May more and more prayer partners spring up in these days. You will encourage ea other and also hold ea other accountable to our Lord. We must stay in the Word ea day and look for His wonderful promises to us. Ask God to illumine a promise or two esp for you at this time. As He does, for He is faithful to ea seeker, write it out. Hang it up. Memorize it. Pray it back to God. His promises will strengthen you and lift up your heart and spirit. God is with us!! He will never leave us nor forsake us!! HE IS COMING AGAIN!!! If you get too down, read Rev. 21 and 22. Look what awaits those who place their very lives in Christ Jesus. Amen and Amen. To Him be glory in the church now and forevermore!!

I am really struggling to accept what is happening to our country. I do not watch or read anything concerning the new administration. After hearing Trumps farewell speech it is beyond my comprehension that people could not get beyond their hate of him to see the good he accomplished. I am not equating him to Jesus but I could not help but think of the Crucifixtion. I feel so helpless. Surely there is something God would have us do.

I voted for President Trump. I supported him because he is Pro-Life,kept us out of war, supported Israel, installed pride for country, and helped Black Americans. I believe in my heart that he won the election. The only reason why Biden is in the White House is because he took advantage of the virus and cheated the system, and had a lot of help from big tech,big companies, and God only knows how many foreign countries.
I feel like it sends the wrong message to young people. You can cheat and steal as long as you win. It’s the end results that matters.

    you are right and God is in His time going to use Tramp again to wake up this nation to all the hate and
    corruption in the swamp. We will see the hand of God move for this one nation under God .We did nothing to
    stop the one person from taking prayer out of the schools and now the young knows no history to live by. We
    are going to see dark times for not speaking up for our children 50 years ago and God waiting to hear from
    us all. Have mercy old God on us all. Fear God not man. 2 Tim.2:26 and Ro.8:26

In this call for prayer for these ungodly leaders, I was drawn to an article that I read regarding prayers for removing them from office. They are prayers for God to exact justice, not for me to exact judgment upon them. I feel that most of these people have seared consciences and my spirit will not allow me to pray that God blesses them; even though we are taught to pray for these who have rule over us. I feel that, like David, we are to pray for their removal. There has been far to much shedding of innocent blood, which is one of the 7 sins God hates. Psalm 109:6-15 (NLT)6 They say, “Get an evil person to turn against him. Send an accuser to bring him to trial.7 When his case comes up for judgment, let him be pronounced guilty. Count his prayers as sins.8 Let his years be few; let someone else take his position.9 May his children become fatherless, and his wife a widow.10 May his children wander as beggars and be driven from their ruined homes.11 May creditors seize his entire estate, and strangers take all he has earned.12 Let no one be kind to him; let no one pity his fatherless children.13 May all his offspring die. May his family name be blotted out in a single generation.14 May the LORD never forget the sins of his fathers; may his mother’s sins never be erased from the record.15 May the LORD always remember these sins, and may his name disappear from human memory. Sounds harsh, but this is what David prayed. So, I am praying God’s mercy and removal of the wicked who have rule over us.

    TOTALLY in agreement. I’m praying for repentance or removal and like you, I feel in my spirit that they are reprobates. I can’t pray anything but for their removal. When I saw all 4 of those reprobates going up
    Stairs to a Catholic Church the day of The “installation” of the illegal regime, I thought maybe the walls would fall down… not because they are sinners, but because they were doing that for a photo op. It was so unbelievably obvious. So yes, I will continue to pray for Removal if the baby murderers will not Repent.

I am dealing with such grief over all that has happened over 2020. I specifically am struggling that evil seems to win. Those who are over us politically are going to keep doing harm to our America and our freedoms. Us, we the people, feel trapped in their agenda, not sure how to really make a huge change. I am praying for our nation. Will continue; my faith definitely being tested with the fraudulent election, and all the hypocrisy of the left. All the lies and accusations, the very thought out events on the 6th to continue to point and blame Trump and us believers. Sad state our country is in. I want to not give up, to keep standing. God is not done with this whole evil plan to destroy America.

God has not turned His back on America! There is no reason to be sad or grieve. God Loves this country! This isn’t over! Remember, the early settlers came to America to worship God. They came to glorify Him and advance the Christian faith. God made covenants with the earliest settlers. He always keeps His covenants. He never breaks them. He is not a man, that He should lie, or a son of man that He should change His mind. He speaks and acts. He promises and fulfills. Numbers 23:19

I continue to remind Father of His covenants. We will always be free to worship Him. America will always be a Christian nation. Psalm 105:8, 1 Corinthians 8:6, Hebrews 13:8.

When I was praying, I saw an explosion. Then it was calm. Wait for the explosion. The explosion is the rebirth of American. The best is yet to come! America will always be a Christian nation!

Also remember that God does not need any man to “save” His nation!

ToniAnn,
Yes, I agree with you. I was so upset, just as you were. I couldn’t understand why God would turn his back on us after all the prayers that had gone up concerning this election. Why would he turn us over to a corrupt party that did not win the election legitimately? I don’t believe he will. I believe he WILL turn this around. We all thought it would happen before the inauguration, but that was not God’s ultimate plan. There is more evil that needs to be exposed. And it will be. God will ultimately reveal it and remove it. He will NOT turn this nation over to evil. He still has a plan for American and it WILL come to pass.

I don’t have alot of time to explain as am at work. As I was grieving this morning these scriptures I believe where divinely brought to my attention so as to focus on and straighten me out during this time. Maybe they will minister to someone else so here they are:
Why does God leaves us on this earth after we are saved? In the second chapter of his letter, Peter begins by reminding us that we are living stones, part of the holy building God is building on the cornerstone Jesus Christ. This building made up of the lives of Christians is to be a beacon proclaiming the glory of God and the good news of redemption in Jesus.

In the remainder of his letter to the churches, Peter addresses what we are to do while we are living on this earth. He first tells us that we are likely to encounter trials and suffering in this world. Then, beginning with verse 13 of chapter 1, Peter conveys to us the importance of our mission, giving us instructions we would expect a military commander to give before sending his team out on a dangerous and critical mission. He tells us to:

Prepare our minds for action — we are to be action oriented, not passively waiting for our life to pass by.

Be alert and focused on the mission — we are to keep our minds focused on God’s purpose for our life on this earth.

Keep a long term perspective — don’t be deceived into putting your thoughts and your hope on the temporary temptations of the world, and

Realize God has entrusted you with the priceless resource of time — Peter tells us that we are to conduct ourselves in the fear of the Lord while we are on this earth.

The apostle Peter put it this way, “[You are] a people of his own, so that you may proclaim the virtues of the one who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”{11}

Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which wage war against the soul. Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation.{12}
1 Peter 2:18-19, Peter tells us,

Servants, be submissive to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and gentle, but also to those who are unreasonable. For this finds favor, if for the sake of conscience toward God a person bears up under sorrows when suffering unjustly.

our post-salvation purpose of life on earth is to proclaim the excellencies of Jesus Christ through the gospel. The first two ways that we should use to proclaim Christ in this world. The first way is through excellent behavior lived out before an unbelieving world. The second is through living out right relationships with those with whom we deal in this world. As you can see, these first two ways that Peter addresses do not require us to explain our faith in Jesus Christ. Rather, they draw unbeliever’s attention to our lives, building up questions in their minds.

I give God our Father in heaven all glory for His Word, His truth in the name of Jesus for guiding me to read and hold on to His Word now more than ever.Remember what He said to Thomas? Be not faithless but believing (John20:27).Also from Luke when Jesus spoke to the two on the rode to Emmaus chpt24:25 note all that the prophets have spoken. I believe by His Spirit He has great things for us who believe.In Jesus Name.Amen.

Paul
January 21, 2021

I’ve been impressed since early 2020 that God is speaking to us, “’Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also heaven.’” And this statement, ‘Yet once more,’ signifies the removal of those things that can be shaken, things that are created, so that only those things that cannot be shaken will remain.” You may recognize this from Hebrews 12 (and Haggai 2). I have been concerned that we are trying to hang onto things that can be shaken, esteeming them as from God, yet they are things that were made by the hands and words of fallible men. The Kingdom of God is unshakable — the kingdoms of men, not so much. We can have absolute confidence in God, and the peace that comes therewith, that we will not be shaken as we hide ourselves in Him, but we find trouble when we hold onto shakable things. I feel we have not stopped to ask ourselves, what am I leaning on that is man-made, but have rather asked God to preserve and maintain those things, when He is saying that He is shaking them, and they will ultimately be removed. I have that peace and confidence that He will do good, but I am consciously keeping a willingness to let go of some things I have been accustomed to all my life.

    Mary
    January 21, 2021

    I agree. The kingdom we are concerned with is God’s Kingdom which will come, is unshakeable and nothing can stop it. THE USA is not God’s Kingdom, although we grieve for all the evil that has presently taken over this nation. God is allowing all the evil to come to the surface. It is painful to see it, but HE will deal with the evil in His time and way. We can ask God for wisdom to pray in a such a way that we help HIS kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. We can trust His promises and His love for each one of us.

In 2019 I had a strong feeling of dismay, that something evil was about to happen, but I didn’t know what. The Holy Spirit was warning me. God has given me the gift of sight and dreams. Before COVID19 hit, a man approached me in a local store where I was in the books and magazines area looking for historical books about WW2 to complete my mother’s childhood story of her experience through that war. A man approached me from behind to look at what I was reading. Completely caught off guard, he started yelling at me about reading books in that area. He mentioned that I should be reading a type of book I couldn’t even understand of what language or if it was of a different religion! When I gathered back my composure, I stood my ground and and I told him that Jesus was my Savior and the books I was looking at were decent! He quickly walked away. That was in 2019 also. Not too long ago, I had a dream of war and people all around me were being shot, bombs going off. It was very real life like and full of color! My mother is now 86 and was saved 13 years ago after my dad died. She is very afraid to go through a war again, but I remind her that she has a Savior who will be with her no matter what God’s plan is. I also told her that Satan is angry because his time is short and he has caused our world to go crazy and extremely evil. Our job is to still love everyone, even the blind who don’t realize that what they really need is not Biden, but Jesus Christ as Savior! Jesus is with us inside and nobody can take Him away from us, even if they took our Holy Bibles from us! Amen and peace be with everyone!

Mountains stand majestic.
No Matter What …
God still sits on THE THRONE.
God still is IN LOVE WITH US.
God still is THE GREAT I AM.
GOD STILL IS …
No Matter What.

Don’t give up.
My advice to go back to the 10 commandments and spend time confessing historic sins and sins of the ancestors and sins of the country.
Then fill the heavens with prayer: chaining up evil, exposing all darkness, and bringing the right men and women forward.
The ultimate defender of freedom is always God; we need Him in the fight.
God bless you all!

First, “pray for your enemies and those who abuse you.” Second, Several years ago the Holy Spirit told me the following which I never forgot. “You are going to be living in a time when all the evil which has been hidden will break out of the surface of the earth. I am telling you this so that you will not be dismayed when it happens. I, THE LORD, am allowing it, I am in control and I have a plan…” (There was more, but that is the heart of it) Well!! it is happening all around us causing much grief and sorrow and questions. Although millions of people around the world were praying for our election, God has allowed it to be stolen by fraud. He has His reasons and I trust Him, although I am grieving and trying not to be angry. (I know enough about the underground of this that I cannot soft pedal it). I realize that those who have done this illegal thing are caught in The Great Delusion, prophesied in II Thess 2:11 and are in great trouble eternally. My responsibility is to pray for their realization and repentance. I sadly see that some who are caught up in this delusion call themselves by the name of Jesus and it is possible that He will say to them “depart from Me I never knew you.” This causes me to be diligent in my own self examination. I want to be a standing answer to Jesus’ poignant question, “will the Son of Man find faith when He returns to earth???” PS when I am getting frustrated and really struggling with anger I read one of the imprecatory Psalms. IT is in Scripture!!

Today and last night I wept, a lot…. our government is so corrupt. I’m so thankful that the Lord blessed our country with a leader like President Donald Trump to awaken many Americans. I’m so sad with how he was treated by the media, by the swamp and the many who are continuing to spew hate despite their alleged belief that they “won.”

I’m heartbroken that Biden was allowed to be inaugurated today with all his corruption, with bribing the Ukraine, with his illegal business activities with Russia and China and with his rascist beliefs. We know he’s an illegitimate president.

It’s upsetting to think of all the hell the democratic Senators, Congressmen plus CIA, FBI, media and every other never-Trumper put President Trump and innocent people through over the past five years. Lies based on fake allegations. Now we have a real crook occupying the White House. It’s so unfair.

I was slightly angry about the idea today of trying to “fight for justice” when our own legislative and judicial branches tried to bury the crimes of voter fraud. Our military is allowing it by not arresting Joe and all the other crooks who broke Constitutional laws. Why couldn’t they be arrested today? We know there is treason. It’s been a day of wonder for sure, or no wonder as many of us had hoped justice would have been served before today or, in a worst case scenario, today!!

President Trump said we’ve got to go on and enjoy our lives… meanwhile, the evil that exists is continuing to try to silence Christians and spread false allegations of Patriots as terrorists. It’s more appealing for us to go back to letting all the injustice prevail. It’s hard to imagine stepping up into any “political” arena after watching what the administration has endured.

Our incredible President Trump and his patriotic staff were surrounded by traitors, negativity and hate in our country. Evil “won,” it’s hard to muster hope.

In one day, Biden is getting the US back involved with all the corrupt foreign organizations that generate hundreds of millions for these evil, selfish “public servants.”

I really can’t think about four years of a corrupt president or this being our last “fair” (not fair) election ever. That makes me cry.

I pray the country will continue to turn to God, that more people will be saved and that prayer is common among all. I do pray for a restoration of our hope and our faith in God. I pray for justice in His perfect time and in a grand way that makes it clear to all that our God is the victor, He “trumps”evil & wins 🙏🙏❤️❤️

Our Abba Father, just like in Ezekiel 37, we ask for Your breath from the four winds to blow and breathe upon our dry bones that we may LIVE again and ARISE as Your end time army. Let Your spiritual awakening come upon the Church in America and in all the nations so that we would return to You our First Love with all our hearts, with all our minds, with all our souls and with all our strength. Help us step into our calling to be a holy priesthood and built up as a spiritual tabernacle offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to You through Jesus Christ. Help us to devote ourselves to holiness and consecration to prepare the way for the return of our King of Glory, Yeshua HaMashiach, the one and only Messiah. Help us Your children remember we may be hard pressed but we are not crushed, we may be perplexed but not in despair, we may be persecuted but we are never forsaken, struck down but not destroyed. No, even in trials and tribulations, You have made us to be more than conquerors through Christ who loved us for nothing can separate us from Your everlasting love. We thank and praise You for Your mercy that endures forever. We love You. You alone are worthy of all glory, honor, and power. In the mighty name of Yeshua I pray, Amen.

I want to thank God for President Trump. He is a God send to America. He used astute business knowledge and accomplished more than all Presidents in my life time. His farewell speech is precious. He loves America and all the people. I will pray for Pres Trump and his family as I do for my own. I pray God raises up others who speak truth and do good for our nation. God bless Pres Trump and America.

I am struggling also; overwhelmed with sadness. Sadness for what they put President Trump and his family through for the past four years. Sadness for the fact that so much evil lurks in our government and across the world. Sadness that it seems they will never be brought to justice. Sadness for the children of the world who have been abused. Sadness that the media is so biased. Sadness for the hate that was created and promoted by the left. Sadness for the lies and and corruption around the election. Sadness that if they were able to get away with it this time (and apparently in past years), there will never be another fair election in this country. I was hoping that God’s “will” was the same as what I wanted. I am very worried for our country and the world. But I’m trying to hang in there, and trust in God. If I remember correctly, Jesus’ Good Friday didn’t end so well, but His Easter Sunday was amazing! Still hoping and praying. God wins!

    almost exactly how i felt as i sat watching the inauguration and waiting for God to intervene. I shed tears, and then became physically sick to my stomach. The thoughts of the sex trafficked children and even adults of the world is overwhelming, and the abortion and all the other things you mentioned. We wanted God to meet our time line. After i watched him sworn in, i went into prayer, saddened, sick to my stomach and confused. He said stand. The word is stand. stand in faith, dont give up on Him. Faith is not based on what we see in the natural. Stand, God hears our prayers.

I am feeling very calm. For over 4 years I have watched everything unfold and have worried about how President Trump would get out of each situation the Deep State would put him in and whether or not what they were saying was true. But each time the Lord showed the truth and helped President Trump through each situation. I finally learned to trust the Lord with everything while continuing to pray. I do not believe the Lord will turn His back on His Children or President Trump. The Lord’s Will will be done! And I am looking forward to His many blessings!

This is surely a HARD season in our nation’s history. Knowing GOD IS IN CONTROL and resting in His peace (a moment by moment prayer)– this can bring peace to the heart and mind! He is so faithful and the only Sovereign God. I pray for protection over President Trump and his entire family – also for Mike Pence and family. I do believe the Lord is calling the Church to repent and to stand firm for all He calls us to in the Word. I am praying for revival across this great land!! Thank you Lord Jesus for your peace, love and faithfulness!!!!

am not very happy with what my eyes are witnessing right now but I know God will is prevailing. looking at the situation, it seem God has lost the battle, but greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. God’s word tells us that God does not answer the prayers of the wicked. Not everyone who says Lord, Lord will enter the Kingdom of God. it is amazing to witness the opposite side prayed to God and pretend as if nothing bad happened. the God of Israel is till alive. he never fail David, he never fails the disciples of Jesus Christ even though they wake up on a dark day as the one we are facing today. He prevailed and He will prevail in our nation. the glory of the Lord covers the face of this nation. the Egyptians we see today, we will see them no more. Be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might.

Still struggling to process all that is happening. In our Bible Study today we read Philippians 2:1-11 and discussed what humility means – having the mind of Christ who was the supreme model of humility. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Value others about yourselves, looking not to our own interests, but to the interests of others. I am convicted of my pride in wanting to BE right, to have the last word, for my “side” to win as proof of being “right”, of assuming I know what those who think differently from me are like and what their motives are; of not really listening to what they say. I’m prayerfully considering beginning a dialogue with a close friend who sees the world differently from me, and practice loving by listening to them with an open heart. I think this must be where the change in our divided and hate-filled country must begin, two people choosing to listen to the other without judging; choosing to love even in disagreement; to put relationship over “being right.” I need much prayer preparation to be able to do this. I appreciate the encouragment of my brothers and sisters in Christ on this website! May God use this time of tumult and pain to bring about His good purposes.

    You may want to consider thinking of the joyful times you
    had when you saw President Trump accomplish something that
    was so astounding that you could see the Hand of God so
    clearly orchestrating i6 all. I bet your tummy will feel
    better. I also wanted to tell you that Donald J Trump is
    in the process of setting up an office called ‘Former
    President Trump’s Office’. Remember he said he would be
    back in a somewhat different manner. His answer when asked
    of his future plans. It won’t be long before he is off and
    running again. I hope you are feeling better now. God Bless!

I love the way God has been drawing us to each other, removing denominational quibbles, misunderstandings, pride (and prejudice), superiority, judgment–the Father answering the Son’s prayer in John 17! I love how at the same time we are each drawn to the same Bible verses/passages: 2 Chronicles 7:14, Psalm 91 and 46, 2 Chronicles 20, the analogy of the Red Sea, being “between a rock and a hard place.” It’s terrifying to face and I’m sure I would literally drop dead of anxiety if I didn’t know God has a way through for us, too!

In Jesus name, We The People, pray for understanding & clear wisdom through His Holy Spirit to recognize the reasons why the voice of the prophets who spoke God’s word of President Trump being a 2 term president has not come to fruition. Answer why Our Holy Father has allowed evil leaders to win who will invoke policies that go against Biblical statues including full term abortion, opening borders, transgenderism, homosexual marriage, etc when our last administration has worked toward eliminating such sinful horrors. The Trump administration attempted to unite with Israel & fulfill prophesy to move the US embassy to Jerusalem. We pray that God will fill ALL our leaders with His Holy spirit & rebuke the spirit of Ahab & Jezebel that will be sworn in today as reigning over the USA. God HELP the USA & all the nations of HIS Kingdom, Amen

Or we could just trust God knowing He has a plan up His sleeve, so being alive today in such a time as this is a privilege and almost like watching a suspense movie! I wonder what will happen next? I know without a doubt God is faithful, so I’m anxiously with bated breath watching and waiting to see How He will take care of this and what He will do next! On the positive side, He absolutely will conquer His enemies. We’ve all read the end of the book and God wins and we win. We just have to wait patiently for His plan and His timing. God is still on the throne, and He is good. Let’s all be sure to keep our focus on Him and not on the circumstances. Let’s walk by the Spirit and not by the flesh.

It is an untruth that they are the “president-elect and vice president-elect”. They are not; they stole this election, with the help of the corrupt and evil that would not stand for the Truth. And so I cannot pray for the well-being of evil people. I pray for God to intervene, and have mercy on America. May he forgive us, and may we truly become a repentant Nation. God will do with the wicked as He sees fit.

John Calvin said that when God gives wicked leaders to a Nation, it is to judge that Nation. And when I think of how to pray, I think of Hezekiah with Sennacherib, and others in the Bible that were faced with wicked men trying to overtake them.

May we turn to the LORD and may He have mercy upon us.

I want to share that I believe the Lord is allowing so much to be uncovered and the plans of the wicked to appear to be prospering to wake up the church. Imagine if Pres Trump had been pronounced winner in Nov?…. we would have all gone back to our self-absorbed lives by now. Jesus said, Take heart, I have overcome the world… then why does it look like the world is winning? Daniel 7:21-22…”As I watched, this horn was waging war against the holy people and defeating them… UNTIL the ancient of days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the holy people of the Most High.” Because God’s plan for the powers of darkness to be defeated is a surrendered church… They overcome by the blood of the lamb, the word of their testimony and they love not their lives unto death. (Rev 12:11) It’s doesn’t say they overcome by praying really hard. We must become a body of believers who literally will lay down our lives for others. I’m not talking about dying on a physical battle field, i’m talking about RADICAL LOVE. When Jan 6 proved to be such a disaster, we realized the truth of scripture… tomorrow is not promised, all we have is today. what would God ask of us today? Love Him with all of our heart, mind and strength and love our neighbor as ourselves. Wait, do you know anyone who loves their neighbor as themselves? i don’t… but this is our new focus. WHAT DOES LOVE LOOK LIKE TODAY?

    The Bible says to pray for your enemies. It’s not if we feel like it, it’s a command. Don’t let your enemies prove you disobedient to the God you love and serve. And – I pray for Biden that his spiritual eyes will be opened so he can see and know the truth, that God will call his name and Biden can find salvation just like you did and I did. I was once blind just like Biden is now blind. No can know what they don’t know, what they have never learned. I ask You, Father God, to reveal Your truth to him because he is deceived and knows it not. Not because Biden is a good and moral person, but because he is Your child, created by Your own hands, and You love him as much as you love me and Anita.

Well, to be very honest, i am struggling greatly. So many of the so called “prophets “, that were constantly on the ifa feed were absolutely dead wrong. This is very disheartening to me. What have we been doing? Have we been blinded and deceived? Have we prayed selfishly and wrongly, for our own shortsided agendas? What really is God’s will for our nation and the world? The prophecy in the Bible seems very clear to me about what will happen in the end of days. Shouldn’t we be alinging ourselves and our prayers with what God’s Word says instead of our own “ dreams and so called visions “? Yes, i am very disheartened with what has and is happening in our nation and world, but maybe more so with the so called prophets and “intercessors”. My faith holds firm in GOD ALONE AND HIS WORD…. not the words of self made men.

    Christine, your last sentence says it all. Why are we caught up in the words of self appointed prophets, in paying attention to them, while often failing to study the words of our Lord, and his appointed apostles and prophets who have spoken clearly and accurately to us in God’s Word. I think this is the lesson to be learned. In Rev 19:10 it is written, ‘the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.’ His words of prophecy, and those God appointed to write in Scripture are the ones we should be heeding in these end times. May God lead you in His peace and in His pathways.

Fifty years ago, God warned me about the combination of media and education acting as one great false prophet system. Through the years, He also warned me about trusting my own reasoning. Today, He’s saying, “Listen to My voice. Let me lead you. Yield to my righteousness. Let My love be shed abroad in your heart by the Holy Ghost. Only say the words I say through you. Only to the acts I do through you. I realize my spiritual immaturity in this and my lack of discernment. However, God assures me if I just keep in step with the Spirit, He’ll forgive my missteps, continue to form Christ in me, continue to renew my mind, and continue to remove the fleshly nature. With that, maturity and discernment will come.

I am handling the storm by not listening to the forecast, which is very cold, dark and gloomy. I have turned off the source which is the TV news. I occasionally tune in to Newsmax in the evening because of Greg Kelly who has always been pro-Trump, but today Jan. 20, I will not turn on the TV at all. Other than that, I am having more time for prayer and reading God’s word. It is the Good news, not the bad that we all need now.

Father, You are most certainly not finished with America.

Our faith is in You and the wonderful promises You have given in Your word, and also that You have been releasing to us through many trusted, seasoned, credible, people these last several months. We will not waver regarding Your words and plans. We have not been warring for a person, although a person is involved. We are certainly not warring for a political party. Lord, we are battling for Your plans and purposes for America.

We decree today, even on a day where we may see some things that grieve us, You will always have the last say. Always. You are never at the mercy of Your enemies, You are never out-planned, outmaneuvered, or overpowered. And You are indeed, raising up a mature people who are able to release Your kingdom authority in the earth. We are determined to do this and we will not back up. You declare the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10). Therefore, You are never having to figure things out or play catch-up. You always have a plan.

Yes, we are at the Red Sea. Our backs are against an impassable barrier, and the enemy in front of us looks like they have won. But they have not won. And they will not win. Our faith is strong. Our hope is steadfast. You have begun America’s turnaround and You will finish it. We declare these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

In my prayer time with the Lord, I was so upset with the unhandedness of this fraudulent election with a cry asking that justice would prevail. I serve a mighty God, a just God, a God of Truth .. I brought all my prayers, my supplications and requests made them known unto him. The Lord spoke to me saying, “BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD.” So I do believe that God is going to turn this around for good. I stand knowing that with God all things are possible. My faith is being tested this very hour of uncertainty, but I believe that he will move on behalf of this nation. His timing is not ours nor are his thoughts, they are much higher. I will remain steadfast in Fatih and will not be moved for the God that parted the Red Sea for the Children of Isreal when there seems to be no hope will be the same God that will deliver this Nation out of the snare of the enemy.. I WILL BEHOLD AND SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD COME FORTH. Is there anything too difficult for our God?

I’m not going to lie. I’m really struggling. Sometimes I’m okay and other times I feel physically ill from everything going on. Between the every day trials and then the political and world issues on top of it…it’s a lot. I pray every day, even if they’re short little prayers asking God to give me strength. Sometimes I don’t even know what to say to God at times because I just repeat myself. I’ve been listening to scripture every day and just trying to lean on and trust in Jesus. I know He’s with me always and His plans are better than mine, it’s the letting go of worry and accepting whatever comes that’s hard. I’m also upset over how evil people seem to get away with things. I know in the end they won’t, but I still get mad that no one is being held accountable for the horrible things that they’ve been doing to the powerless. I pray for those poor children. :'(
Please pray for me. Thank you and God bless you my fellow brothers and sisters.

    Vicki, I can so relate to your struggle … I also know that I have to keep being very purposeful about recalling Scripture, reading it, and recalling it somemore. I have felt completely overwhelmed at times and can weep often for our beloved country. Thank you for being open about your struggle. I am finding it strengthening to hear the heart of other believers who love the Lord and love this country … it’s our founding that has made our nation exceptional … our Christian founding.
    May we find grace, faith, strength, and peace today … let’s pray through the day and keep recalling to our minds that it is through the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, His compassions, they fail not , and His faithfulness is great … this is our hope. 🙏 I am also encouraged by those godly patriots who are standing up in these very difficult days. Let’s keep encouraging one another!

    In Christ’s Love,
    Wendy Friske

I continue to pray and worship my God, Yahweh, My Savior Jesus and Holy Spirit! I have cried a lot in the last couple of weeks. I cry when I think about how Our President has been mistreated and see the evil in our country. I continue to pray for him and his family. I have never before felt this way about a President as I do Donald Trump, not because he’s perfect, none of us are, but because I believe God called him for this position for such a time as this and he has done a lot of good for our country. As we read the Bible we know how the story ends. We will have the victory!

I am not shaken. I have not been able to stop praying since October. I feel closer than every to God and Jesus as I continue to pray. The evil doers who have plotted and schemed all of what has happened. Have not caused me to stumble. They have lifted me up. All of us who have drawn closer to God because of the evil, will see victory. God’s plan is better than our plan. We have to never give up. I know now that my love for God and my faith will get me to victory. I don’t need to read reports. I do not need to see victory today, tomorrow or even in my lifetime. I only need to know that all of this was not hidden from God’s eyes. So. I go into Jan 20th 2021 without any sadness. I declare that the evil ones will regret every doing evil on all of us who have been praying for this country. God loves us. God wants to depend on only him. Well, that is what all of us are doing.
Please everyone, wait on God. It will be better in the future than we could every imagine.
God bless America

    Thank you. I have been shaken so much, vacillating between trust, faith, grief, panic and terror! I have been reduced to: God is, God is good, God is all powerful, God loves us, God feels with us, Jesus died for ma, I love Him, He knows and wants what’s best for us, sin (including mine) will not go unpunished, I want His will not mine no matter what, I know He makes a way where there is no way. That’s about it. Praise Him!

I am so thankful for the past four years of Donald Trump’s presidency. It’s been refreshing to see a president who did what he said he would do after so many years of empty promises and disappointments. It’s hard to believe that an election could be stolen as we witnessed. I still hope fir s miracle! As the Intercessors came together in prayer we were so sure that God would answer our prayers the way that we thought it should be done. As I Intercessors we know that God has heard our prayers, we know that He has not turned a deaf ear to us and yet the days got darker. But as intercessors we know that when we pray and ask God that His will be done He will do what only He can do and in His own time. I have learned many lessons throughout these many weeks, one being that my will is not necessarily His will. I do need to forgive those who have wrong President Trump and our nation and at times it’s is not easy but I MUST. I am working on that. I am so thankful that I have had the opportunity to meet many prayer Intercessors on the 24/7 Prayer line. Many times I’ve been discouraged and gone to the prayer line just to find encouragement and hopefully be able to encourage others. I’m so thankful for God‘s word that has encouraged me day after day. I’m thankful for chapters like Psalm 91, Psalm 2, Psalm 112, and the many chapters in Isaiah when God said “ I am God and there’s none like me.“. Through these many weeks God Word has proven to be timeless. Thank you Dave and Kris for opening this prayer line. We needed it for ourselves and each other. God bless you all.

I’m sad. Just plain sad!
Sad that our freedoms in America are becoming more and more restricted. Over the past month our gas prices has increased, stores are posting “ cash shortages, debit or Credit Cards only” just for a few examples.
Our grandchildren are being taught PC culture is the normal and our politicians, even at the local level refuse to listen and turn around and do exactly what they’ve forbidden us to do, boldly on TV.
President Trump is not God. I don’t worship him. But, I’ll miss him fighting for the regular every day ordinary person.
Thank you, Sir & God Speed!

      I too am stunned and in shock about how things have turned out, but today as I turned to my Bible Study, these verses spoke to me: 1Thess 5:16-24 –
      Be joyful always; pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; do not treat prophesies with contempt. Test everything. Hold on to good. Avoid every kind of evil. May God himself the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, the one who calls you is faithful and He will do it! Amen

Jesus said oh ye of little faith. I and millions have been repenting and praying for this nation. The nation of Israel was at the Red Sea, the Pharaoh and his army (no small army) behind. Israel had no idea where the pathway out was but God did and they walked over on dry ground, the very ground Pharaoh and his army perished in. God said if my people will humble themselves and pray seek my face turn from their wicked ways then will I hear. He has heard, He isn’t through with America He has given her a destiny and He will use her again for His great world harvest. So stand hold the line and see what God will do.

    Last night my husband and I watched again The Exodus Revealed, a documentary showing physical and other evidence for the Red Sea crossing. I stood with the Israelites as the videographer filmed that vast sea ahead with the cliffs behind and identified with their fear. But when the divers went down into the sea of Aqaba and revealed the actual seaweed-encrusted chariot wheels and axles, it was amazing! So faith-affirjming: “You will never see them again!” Hallelujah!

God’s Word says that HE is the one who seats men in high places,having cried out to our Lord for months like thousands of others, for another 4 years of righteous leadership, i believe what very well may be happening is God’s judgement on the church, HIS BRIDE is stained, stained with having”other gods before HIM,(our comforts, our pleasures, our shame of proclaiming HIS name when given opportunity, for not being the SALT of the earth,” where is the church speaking out about cultural issues, being willing to publicly decry the culture norms that are against God’s principles,how many pastors are not willing to “speak God’s truth” because they don’t want to “offend” congregants, they fear man more then speaking the ‘Whole truth.’
I believe we as the Bride of Christ (the church) needs to repent, and to love the LORD our God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind, once again. Will suffering do that? I pray so. There is ALWAYS hope, in our God, JEHOVAH, HE is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow, HE made away when the Egyptians were on the heels of the Israelite’s, He saved Daniel from the lions, He saved Shadrach, Meshach , and Abendego.He can do the same today, but HE desires, even demands repentance of me, of us all who name HIS name.

This has indeed been a very trying time. I have watched news and reports from both sides of the isle. I have been upset at times. The unrest at the Capitol was terrible. Who would do these things? There is no way that both sides (mainstream media and the conservative media) are right in reporting Polar opposite news. I wonder how people do not see through some of these reports.

What I do believe is that God will use all things for good for those who love and serve the Lord. I have come to have a peace in my heart that there is nothing that God doesn’t know. I hope many will continue to pray for those in leadership and for our country. Like Shawn Hannity reminds us daily: Let not your heart be troubled.

Look I’m not saying it’s not it’s not going to happen, it might. His thoughts are not my rhoughts and my his thoughts are not my thoughts. But don’t be surprised if He doesn’t show up for that 11th hour miracle!

      I don’t expect anything to change for the short term ( 4 years). There will most likely be a lot of decisions that we will not like at all. I expect many of them. What I do know is that God loves us. He will help us all through this time. I will choose to pray for our government and for all those in charge. What we can do is that we can work for good things to happen in our country. We need to actually get involved. Then let God handle the rest.

I am doing the same thing that Jesus did.
I am resting on a cushion of faith believing that JESUS will speak to the wind and the waves and command the storm to cease and get us all safely to the other side.

And having been awoken, He rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Silence, be still!” And the wind abated, and there was a great calm.

Loved the message Bible in Psalms 64:

They say to each other
“No one can catch us
no one can detect our perfect crime.”
The Detective detects the mystery
in the dark of the cellar heart.

The God of the Arrow shoots!
They double up in pain,
Fall flat on their faces
in full view of the grinning crowd.

Everyone sees it. God’s
work is the talk of the town.
Be glad, good people! Fly to God!
Good-hearted people, make praise your habit.

So lets praise the Lord. We shall witness the VICTORY!

    Yes, Trump keeps on saying, our great movement has just begun. I want to have faith too that God might make a miracle at the 21th hour. If not, it means ee have to pay indemnity for the mistakes of gbose in power. Yrump was surrounded by traitors, Obama holdovers, so he could not clean up all the evils in this nation. But, God still loves America and He will build His Kingdom.

The Bible talks a lot about suffering for the sake of Christ. I believe we are being given the privilege of suffering for the cause of Christ. Persecution is coming. I am asking the Lord to prepare me for the coming events. To recall memorized verses. To sing and praise him. To share the gospel with those within my reach. To obey Luke 19:13 to occupy until he comes. To seek the welfare of my city from Jeremiah 29:7. To savor these times I have with other believers at church, bible study, enjoy friendships, love my family more, and use this website while I can still can.

I believe the virus is God’s judgement on the world for the murdering of innocent life – worldwide abortions. There is no repentance – they kept all the abortions places open and slaughtered millions more. 42 million around the world! God will be sending more judgements. America is a big sinful nation.

January 19, 2021

We’ve been walking through one horrible year after the other since 2009. I think we are handling this one a lot better than the one in 2009 that started this chain. Reading and praying Psalm 23 always helps you center yourself and reflect on how much easier what you are going through is compared to David’s or any of the King’s of Israel and their trials and tribulations. We actually have it a lot easier than any of them, since at least we’ve had short breaks in between to take a breath and refocus our minds on God and his word. We deal with domestic violence victims and the homeless, and so being able to relate
to them is of primary importance if we are to be of any support or help to them turning their circumstances around. The virus and the election and the upheaval of normal hasn’t been difficult to handle, but the changing attitudes of those in the healthcare industry has been a bit trying on our own attitudes. Fear in them has been the biggest challenge and their totalitarian approach to delivering services. When you’re both in the same boat trying to get back to shore you can’t have more than one captain, and since ours will always be the Lord, and some of them only rely on their knowledge and experience it is difficult to get them to see that things will soon be back to more normal if they only have a little faith.

My heart has been broken over the corruption that went on in this election. And what followed with judges, our legislature, the media, etc., rejecting every method of investigation. Then adding the impeachment of our president, without one shred of evidence nauseates me. I no longer have any confidence in the elected officials that are supposed to be representing the people. Breaks my heart!
But I will and do resort to prayer, letting my Savior in on my broken heart. He is my God, & I rejoice in Him, and my salvation, because of Christ alone. I worship Him!!
My heart’s cry is to serve Him & finish my “race” well. With His Grace that will be accomplished.
I thank my Jesus for every intercessor that has persevered in this battle for America. Their prayers,my prayers, for future generations, our president, his family, our country, has been bottled in heaven. May God loose those prayers in His time.
Thank you my brother’s, my sister’s for standing together with one heart, one mind, one spirit for the good of the USA. Let’s never give up praying, trusting in our Lord Jesus. He is still on them throne.

He balances justice and mercy perfectly. I also talk to Jesus, knowing that He experienced unjust treatment. He knows EXACTLY how we feel because He felt it, too! Thank you for expressing so well what I think most of us here feel. I am so grateful to you and all my brothers and sisters here who provide me comfort by simply understanding how I feel. It is great to know that I am understood! Praise God for giving us each other!

I have been thinking about all the miracles God performed when He was making a way for the Israelites to leave slavery in Egypt; this led me to remember the epic film, The Ten Commandments, with Charleton Heston. I watched the movie again (well worth a re-watch)and have been reflecting on a few things.
Filled with anticipation, I believe we are in for a “Red Sea” moment! Can you imagine how they felt when facing an ocean and the Egyptian army of chariots at their rear? There is NOTHING impossible with our God.
Another part of the narrative that stood out to me was the last plague in the land. It began with
Pharoah cursing the Israelites, that their first born would die. But God intervened and made a way with the Passover blood, and the curse came back on the Egyptians, who lost their first-born, even Pharoah.
What the enemy has meant for evil, God WILL use for good. Amen!

I feel like the Lord wants me to pray tomorrow during the Inauguration. Here’s the link:

Think about Israel and Joshua. The people he was leading had been trained wanderers for 40 years. There were no swordsmen, horsemen, military geniuses but they were going in to Canaan where they would be fighting. HOW???
Much the same way as God is asking us now Joshua was asked to put on spiritual armor. What does that look like? Trust/ Pray/ Praise/ Repeat.
We are being trained to be lean in expectations of this world (which is not our home) and fat in our expectation of God’s provision.
Intercessors get fat in Christ; He offers a bounty of good things as you worship Him in spirit and in truth. Then we MUST go into our houses of worship and bring back prayer and trust in God.
We are starting with the children because they will have an easier time in trusting God then the adults who are used to Egypt.

It seems like there have been so many ups and downs these last 3 months. I am so thankful that God is my rock.
And I am incredibly thankful that he woke me out of my sleepy spiritual walk. Though the future can seem unsettling I know that it really isnt Because God is standing straight and tall in the fog. No evil can ever defeat him. And His character is true. He is good and merciful. I am reminded of Psalm 46 “God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth give way…”

And I can’t express my gratitude in knowing that I am shoulder to shoulder with so many amazing intercessors here on IFA. When I listen to the Tuesday and Thursday Prayer Calls and hear all the other intercessors praying I feel that strength and unity. It is amazing.

I have felt All along That this was not over until God had his say, and still don’t feel He has and continue to pray about ever day for President Trump, America and all of us who voted for truth, righteousness, and justice to have him as our president 4 more years; which was a land slide victory, Paslm 64 and Isaiah 35 and other Bible verses. Keeping my eyes on Jesus our righteous judge, and last Friday as cleaning my kitchen, God just came over me with His peace like a blanket and I heard him say “I have this!” I feel like Moses when God told him in Exodus 14:13-14 especially v14 The battle is the LORD’s, and you shall hold your peace and rest in Me. (AMP)
I pray I will stay in His love in my thoughts, prayers and sp each; taking on the whole Armour of God on to br able to stand in these evil days, and doing all to stand. Help me Holy Spirit to be strong in the Lord and the power of His might, Amen!I am so encouraged by your emails and getting on conferance calls, Thank God for you!

In my prayer time this morning, I reflected on what the Jews in Israel were hoping for when the Messiah came: a political leader. But Christ’s Kingdom is not of this world; it’s up to citizens of the world to rule according to God’s laws and commandments. So many, including Judas, just never understood Christ’s message or purpose; they lived an illusion, like what we see too much of today: wanting the easy way, instant gratification of their desires, wave a magic wand, instant fixes to problems — without any responsibility for consequences, nor any desire to work for what they want, or even what they need. Many refused to follow Christ after he fed the five thousand,they just wanted the miraculous multiplication of the loaves and fish. So going forward, we have to adjust like the Hebrews did in Egypt. we know the level of corruption, and it would be wonderful for something stupendous to happen tomorrow, but I don’t believe that is what God desires to show us or teach us. Dependence on Him, based on discipleship, works of mercy, right worship, honest prayer, and above all OBEDIENCE to all God’s laws, not just the one’s that suit our fancy. Too many are blind, deaf, and disobedient, and God has to shake up and wake up sleeping mankind to get them to change. so, while I am deeply saddened, I have no illusions about any sudden miracle that will make it all go away. Trump showed us what is possible when you use your god-given gifts to the good of all humanity, but the blind still want the blind to lead them. May God have mercy on those who are truthfully His, and on our nation.

    Kathy,

    I have been reading the book of Mark. The Holy Spirit put my heart on how I was focusing on a man to solve the problems in America. My flaw was thinking/hoping there was a quick fix and a man could fix it. We live in a different America now. The majority of people deny Christ and worship other gods. Just like many Jews looking for the Messiah as a man (king/prophet) that would solve all their earthly problems. God doesn’t do that. He is leading us to his Kingdom. As Christians we need to unite, we need to stand in prayer with the full armor of God and then we will bring the Kingdom here on earth.

    Hebrews 13:5-6 NKJV
    [5] Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” [6] So we may boldly say: “The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

God has a reason for allowing all that is happening to occur-I believe He is still in the process of bringing the hidden things to light.

Persevere and keep on praying!!

Phillips describes so clearly what we should be doing. I shut off the TV News years ago, and sought my own sources for news that truly reported TRUTH! A daunting task, but possible to find true journalists and some publications that have a Christian foundation. God will provide a miracle very soon that will shock the world and lead many millions to turn to him. President Donald J. Trump is the means, God is the HAND!
May the Grace of God fill our hearts and minds with truth and inspiration in all we do devoted to Jesus Christ! May God Bless all of you with Intercessors of America providing this forum for us to speak!
In Christ,

Prayer is the most necessary thing to do. But we are not wimps (nor do I believe God ask us to be) we are not an able to do somethings but we have things we can do. Stop using Amazon. 80 million voices will make a loud statement to them.
Write your Senators and congressmen demanding the votes be proven. Otherwise why vote again. At least ask for reform!
Demand your governors do the right thing in your state!
Run for office any office.
As Alexander Solzhenitsyn said do not live by lies. When your neighbor tells your lie tell them the truth in love.

I feel guilty for being anxious, for thinking that no one hears me. But I know God hears me, so I tell Him how I feel and then for a little while, I feel better.
I find that I am hedged on every side with pleas for help, with many people in dire straits, how can I refuse them. But I don’t trust them….only the ones like Samaritans Purse, Joni and Friends, all the well known ones. I don’t know if I can trust the ones who ask me to join them in their crusade to fight for freedom.
Perhaps I’m too old at 92…I should just let the younger ones do the fighting.

    Dear Joyce,
    Please do not feel guilty for your feelings. I pray daily, really every moment, and yet cry a lot over all that is happening, my heart and spirit are grieved. If The Holy Spirit lives in us, I believe it is God who is also grieving over the people He created and yet has given us all a free will to choose. He spared Noah and his family and destroyed the whole earth, because of their evil ways. In the Old Testament, There were a good Kings, one died and an evil King rose up. He died and another evil King rose up, then a Good King, Jesus said in this world we will have tribulation. I believe with everything in me, the forces over the USA esp. Washington DC are Occult and Witchcraft. Listening to Derek Prince videos, he knew this years ago. Nothing we can fight in our own strength, Powers and Principalities are over regions. Daniels prayer was delayed because of Satans strategies, Jesus Christ is Above All, Knows All and He has defeated Satan when He rose from the grave. It’s difficult because we are human, but We must keep our eyes on Christ, and encourage one another, and Pray. And NOT allow a false guilt to o ER shadow us.
    Joyce, May the Lord Bless you and Keep you, Make His Holy face Shine Upon you and give you His peace. Shalom Jesus is on the throne, He doesn’t slumber or sleep, He is working we just cannot see, so we must trust, pray, that is our Weapon and Rest in His Wonderful strong and Mighty Arms, Peace in Christ.

I lead two devoted Women’s Lifegroups here in Jacksonville North Carolina of approximately 24 women. In the hours together each week, we not only fellowship and pray with each other but we study our Bible. We believe it is our life book of instruction. Presently we are doing a study called Seamless by Angie Smith. It allows us to experience the Bible like we have never done before, and is one seamless story from Genesis-Revelations about the God who made us, loves us, redeems us, and has a future for us. Even though we are only in week 3 of the study (Beginning the chapter of Exodus)… we can see God using peoples’ lives in the Old Testament as life applications for how we should be in such times as this.
That is, God wants us to know him personally as Christians striving to not only understand the Bible but use it to weather life. When we trust and know our Bible, it brings us to the Truth and Way we lead our lives to walk into tomorrow without anxiousness or regret.
God is all-powerful, all-knowing, and everything! I will trust in him always as I see his written word in history before me and now as He reveals his promised good plan for all that believe in his son Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior!

Trust the Lord always! Nehemiah 4:14 Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and (pray) for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.
Psalm 37 Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.

God commands us to pray for those in authority. That can be very tough in our present times but not impossible. I have to fully learn to depend on God to even utter the words of prayer for some (especially those who are willingly compromised) when we know that the election was fraudulent in so many ways. It is heartbreaking to know that not only the presidential election but other elections were filled with fraud.
But we know that when people become comfortable with the wrongdoing that they have seemingly gotten away with, God has promised that there will be severe consequences for those who participate in these types of misdeeds. And with every person who was knowledgeable about what they were doing and did nothing to correct it, there will indeed be consequences that God alone will ensure. We can’t see what that will be but we must trust that God has it in hand. That is easier said than done and that is where we must ask God for the faith to believe his promises and word will come true.
I, like so many millions, are disappointed that this has happened. One day we will understand in full. For now & going forward, we must continue to seek God for his justice and mercy on our nation. My faith is being pushed to a limit that I have never experienced before. Its not comfortable. We will pray in ways we haven’t before. We will pray for those who we know “committed treason” against the United States, its citizens and willingly lied to God Almighty so that they could gain power. God does not just dismiss actions like this. God will demand accountability for every action. Remember “that to whom much is given, much is required”. In positions such as governmental leadership & actions for a nation, that becomes even more weighty when we consider answering to God.
Continue to pray for President Trump. God isn’t finished with using him yet in our nation. Pray that he can rest, find a deeper relationship with God and use the warrior spirit God gave him to help our nation in ways he may not have even imagined. With so much coming at him during his presidency, understanding on what to do in some areas might have been a struggle at times. Only God knows that. But perhaps without some of that pressure, Pres. Trump may be directed with new ideas that could truly help our nation. We will need that.
Lord – direct us how to pray for everyone in our government. Get us through the wall of pain and disappointment so that we can approach you with hearts of honesty. We need you Lord. Our nation needs you like never before. So many of our leaders need salvation and to turn to you Lord. We ask for an outpouring of your Holy Spirit over D.C., the states and our nation overall. We simply cannot do this without your guidance and help. We pray for the scales to be removed from the eyes of the people of this nation – saved and unsaved. We pray that truth, no matter how suppressed it is — will find its way out and that nothing will stop that. Amen.

We must know that God does not lie! He says that if we would humble ourselves and pray , and seek his face and turn from our wicked ways He would hear from heaven and forgive our sin and heal our land. Evidently we have not done what is commanded! Of us! By no means do I believe that God is thru with the United States of America! But for a change let’s us as Christians stop asking God to Bless America and have an attitude of gratitude towards God And praise and worship him for what he already has done for us. And stop asking if God can and have that faith that believes God will!

What I have learned is that I need to keep my eyes and faith on Jesus only! That I must base my faith in the vast and deep knowledge and understanding of His Word. That I need to hear from Him directly through my daily intimacy with Him! That we can be easily deceived by others who are FALSE PROPHETS. Now I understand that we have been like the Prophet Habakkuk. We have prayed based on assumptions of who God is and how He should had answered our requests. Our assumptions have been based on extremely limited knowledge of the Bible but deeply shaped by our culture. And as He did with Habakkuk the Lord has answered our prayers not the way we thought and were told He was going to answer, but in his sovereign way which is always much better. The Lord allowed the Babylonians to come and destroy the temple and everything they have placed their faith on. He also allowed for the Jews to be taken into exiled. The Lord is allowing us to go through what is coming to do the same thing and take away everything we have placed our faith on that is not from Him. We need to submit to Him and seek Him in a serious and sober way as 1 Peter 4:7 says otherwise we will not be able to stand firm. The SOONER THE FALSE PROPHETS AND WE WHO BELIEVED THEM REPENT and turn our faces to the Lord, the better it will be FOR US TO BE ABLE TO endure and overcome what is quickly approaching. Let us fill our lamps with oil every day by spending time in the secret place with our loving, kind, and merciful Father. Let us not be like the Jews in the time of Jeremiah that even when they were taken captives to Babylon, did not repent and did not acknowledge that everything that had happened was their fault.

I thank God that the riot was no more tragic than it was. Some of that mob wanted to kill the Vice President for fulfilling his constitutional duty. He had no authority to do anything beyond supervising the discussion of whether the electoral votes were valid. That is what he did. No one in that mob had the right to rewrite the constitution and then play judge, jury and executioner. One terrorist thought that everyone inside the Capitol was deserving of death! We are still under God’s protection. He kept the lawmakers safe and even protected the integrity of our Constitution. Thanks be unto Him.

We still need to pray for Senator McConnell, even though he is the minority leader now. He still has the power of the filibuster and we can pray that he will use it wisely, knowing when to block things and when to cooperate with the opposition. And we need to pray for President-elect Biden. The apostle Paul told the people of his day to pray for their leaders and Biden is not as bad as Nero was.

Feeling like we are getting our second wind. Lord we live in a world that feels weary. But we choose, by Your Grace, to turn to You. To trust what You say. By the Power of the Holy Spirit, You have open our eyes to readjust our motives, feelings and what we “think” is true, to align with what IS True. You are not the author of confusion (1 Cor14:33).
You are the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Jesus (John 14:6).”Lord we ask that you not allow the world’s chaos to distract us. We lean not on our own understanding, And TRUST in the Your perfect timing to reveal Your Master plans. (1 Peter 5:6). We align with Your timing of events and continue to pray for revival. Lord You are the God who moves men to will and do. So I humbly ask that You breathe in us and give us favor. Give Your prayer warriors, Your Church, and Your Heavenly armies strength to keep “doing good”. Show us how to live, to serve and love others as You have shown us. Keep our eyes focused on You. Pour out Your Holy Spirit and rain on us. Refresh us as we dig in to see Your Sovereign reign, as we give You Thanks. As we worship You with body, mind and soul. Please Lord, in Jesus’ precious name, help us to keep sowing faithfully for we know our labor will not be in vain. We choose to Trust in You and You alone.

“‘Yet once more I shake not only the earth but also heaven.’ Now this ‘yet once more’ indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made , that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken , let us have grace , by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and Godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12

I believe God is shaking out the things that cannot remain , the idols we have made for ourselves and it is very painful and hard to endure. But praise God that he cares enough to awaken the church and the saints! While it’s hard to see so much chaos and uncertainty , I feel God is going to use this to move in believers to bring us back to prayer and fasting and move into unbelievers to repentance and salvation. Also to give parents a heart for their children again. I’ve never been so thankful to know that our God is a consuming fire 🙂

I am praying for wisdom and strategies to shut down all of the plots and plans of the enemy. I have a Facebook group called Mothers of Law Enforcement where we pray together for our law enforcement officers. This group is not just for mothers. It is for anybody with a heart for law enforcement and for their safety. It has a blue line flag logo. I invite anyone who wants to pray for law enforcement to join us there.

I guess if there is one thing I’ve learned over the last month or so, is that Donald Trump is not our savior. I know we know that in our heads but I think as a Church we have talked about him in such a way and have put our hope in him winning another term. While that might be good for the country, the rhetoric and divisiveness that it has caused in the Body of Christ is not good. I think the enemy has used our unhealthy emphasis on a man to become a trap. There is only one who is God and He and His Son alone are on the throne and worthy of our worship, hope and trust.

I am trusting in the Lord and not leaning on my own understanding. I read scripture to remind myself of the mighty acts of the Lord God, I repeat those acts out loud making declarations to the dark forces that battle against the forces of righteousness. Daniel, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Esther, David, Gideon, Elijah, Elisha, Caleb, Joshua, Jesus, Peter, James, John, and Paul among others are all heroes given to us to build our faith and give us courage to face this current battle. My fight is not against flesh and blood but against powers and spiritual forces of wickedness. I take every sad, depressed and panicked thought captive to the obedience of Christ and repeat the truth of His Word out loud until my brain and my heart hear it and respond in faith. I play worship music loud all day long and sing it out into the heavenly spaces where the battle rages. I trust in God and I believe He is who he says he is and he will do what he said he will do.

Lord, you prayed for unity among your followers – that your “other sheep, not of this fold” would be joined together to become One Flock, One Shepherd. May all of your followers — Catholic, Protestant (with its many sub-sets), and Orthodox unite to postpone the plan of Satan for this country and our world. Let us enrich each other by sharing snd welcoming our various gifts. May we work and pray together energetically for a window of time to bring in your Final Harvest.

We pray that the evils of fraud, fornication, adultery, abortion, greed, idolatry, witchcraft — and all other evils that flow from them — be exposed and forsaken as we run to you and follow you on a sure path of love, honesty and integrity. Help us faithfully obey your commandments. Capture hearts that have gone astray. Be the Shepherd of this country and the world!

NUMBERS 14:24
But my servant ( we are God’s servants) Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land into which he entered, and his descendants shall take possession of it.
I want to be a Caleb and look out over this nation (with its giants) with my eyes fixed on my Father and my knee bowed in humility to see clearly how I as his bride have missed opportunities and allowed my enemy to come sneaking in while I was distracted by this thing or that…… But God in His mercy is not finished with me (or us) yet!
I want to be the one He finds standing in the gap when He looks to see if someone is there.
I want to be the one who has a different spirit – the honey badger tenacity to follow after God.
Honey Badgers don’t back off, they don’t back down.
I want to pass that spirit on to my children and grand children coming up behind me.

I grew up in a military family, and my dad briefed for the day to get his assignment for the day, and de-briefed at the end of the day to get feedback on how things went. That’s how I see my relationship with Abba. We need to hear from Him – and follow obediently. We have enough light for the step we are on.

We get a prophetic word, and then assign based on our own thinking how that will play out.
I don’t think the prophets are wrong. I thing Isaiah 55 is right. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts, His ways are higher than our ways. Be strong and courageous my brothers and sisters. Where we currently stand is no surprise to our Father. He loves us, and hears our cries. He is coming to deliver His bride.
eternally,
Danielle

During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Hebrews 5:7

Father God, thank you for sharing with us the life of Jesus by writing the Bible. He is our model in all things. There is nothing we can go through that he didn’t go through first. He showed us how to live. We would be so lost without him.

Although I was not familiar with it, I do love the words to Steve Camp’s song and what is written here.

He gave me a chorus I learned a long time ago which also fits these times in His church…the church of true believers who have a realtionship with the Living God and His only divine Son:

Lord, prepare me to be a sanctuary
Pure and holy, tried and true.
With thanksgiving, I’ll be a living
sanctuary for you!

    The Lord also gave me the exact same chorus out of the blue last week. I knew it was Him as that is not a chorus that I sing. Praise the Lord, He is confirming.

I confess that I have experienced a bit of disappointment at the election of biden as president. I believe the election was stolen. God could have intervened, but so far He has chosen not to do so. That said, it is the Lord in whom I trust. Not the person Donald Trump. Not the republican political party. Not the government.

I am thankful. So much has been accomplished over the past four years under a Trump administration. I do not believe that God is done with America; yet. I personally do not believe that God is done with Donald Trump. This is not intended to be a prophetic statement. I do not hold myself out as a prophet. I have not had visions and my dreams are more likely the result of old pizza. I just believe that God is merciful and will be glorified by what will take place in America. In my heart, I don’t believe that God will allow the gains achieved under the Trump administration to be totally reversed under the biden administration. I pray that God will frustrate the efforts of the democrats to implement their policies and practices that are an affront to God.

We (collectively the IFA Intercessors) have been asking God to expose the corruption, the lies, the deceit in our government. Well folks, have not our prayers been answered in an amazing way? The democrats have exposed themselves as the party of evil, as the party of lies, as the party of corruption. Should we not celebrate that? Perhaps this exposure is just what the church and Americans need as a jolt to wake them up. From my perspective in Colorado, a great many churches are asleep to the promise God gave Solomon after the dedication of the temple as recorded in 2 Chron 7:13-14. “When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if my people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” Maybe this controversial election is just what is needed to awaken those that slumber. In my observation, absent persecution, the church tends to become complacent. Wasn’t the great commission given to all of us, not just to pastors or a few that are “called”? Have we fully used the time that a Trump Administration has given us to advance the kingdom of God or with the pressure off have we become lazy? Maybe this is a wake up call?

Dear Heavenly Father, like many people, I go through an emotional roller coaster every day. Though I have prayed long that our nation may take a more Godly path, I also know that may not be Your will at this time. I have not given up hope that things may yet change, but know full-well that You have warned of dark days to come, and believe those days are now upon us. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done. In Jesus name I pray Dear Lord, Amen.

Taken from January 19th reading in Watchman Nee’s, A Table in the Wilderness:

Wherefore, O King Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision. Acts 26:19

“What called forth Paul’s lifelong consecration of himself was that flash of light from heaven. The obedience sprang from the vision. For while it remains true that all self-committal to God is precious to Him, blind self-committal may not serve Him very far. There is, I think, a difference between the initial, pure but uninstructed consecration that follows our conversion and that further giving of ourselves that may spring out of a seeing of the plan of God. Upon the one, based as it is on our salvation, He may not at once make severe demands. But when He opens His heart to reveal to us what He wants done, and when having asked for our willingness He receives our fresh response, then it is that His demands upon our giving intensify. We have pledged our word on the basis of a new understanding, and He takes us anew at our word. Hereafter all we have must go into it, all the way.”

Our prayers like Daniel’s can be thwarted by the prince of Persia or prince of wherever; but Michael the Archangel sent to Gabriel to… However I believe the Lord is testing us to see if we really have repented as so many said they did with Franklin Graham’s Prayer March and Jonathan Cahn’s prayer group on the same day at D.C. Do we still look at different denominations and streams in the Church with suspicion, prejudice, and division? Do we still cling to our traditions claiming they are biblical while refusing to hear those who would say otherwise? Do we make broad brush strokes in our statements about things we haven’t researched more thoroughly because we are afraid of what others will say of us or whatnot?

    Thinking to the Lord, in agreement with one who wrote that these days seem like a rollercoaster. But we keep our eyes on the Lord! And this same one also stated that as part of a military background, it was customary to be briefed for the day and at day’s end to be debriefed. That seems like a powerful word and, Lord, i want that briefing to go Your way each day, and to hear Your verdict at days end to repent of errors and to rejoice that my heart is still strong with You, Jesus. Bless us to keep our eyes on the One and Only Wo is Able. Praying with forever hope in the Blessed Hope by the blood and Name of Jesus, amen.

Personally, I have been depressed more, crying more. I have to make myself step back and focus on what the Lord has done and that He is in control! Yes, it has brought anger with it and I find myself talking back to the negative on OAN news. I thank God for OAN news,Intercessors of America, other conservative news networks that spread the Truth. How do I touch other people in my community? I do not know where to start. Yes, I have to say I have had fear. Praise God for you! I am not on here enough. I do work and the timing is not good and praying with others, at the same time, is so much better.

    For what its’ worth, my cousin and his wife are Nurse Practitioners. They got their first COVID vaccine on Dec. 21 and are doing well. My doctor, a Christian, sells pharmaceutical grade Douglas Laboratories – Vitamin D3 as preventions. Trump took these ingredients after he got COVID-19.

    My son practices alternative medicine, and he has kept me healthy without resorting to the MD’s very often. I am 71 and have been in close contact with people who had COVID at least twice without getting sick. I believe God gave us an immune system to deal with viruses like COVID, and we can enhance that system with the right vitamins. You are indeed in a difficult position, and I pray that God will show you the way forward, hopefully without having to take the vaccine.

The Lord’s word from Psalm 45 came afresh to me this morning, extremely relevant in this day. — “Only by your power can we push back our enemies; only in your name can we trample our foes. I do not trust in my bow; I do not count on my sword to save me. You are the one who gives us victory over our enemies. O God, we give glory to you all day long and constantly praise your name.” Amen.

Father Frank Pravone last night at our prayer meeting said: “Be quiet. Let the presence of Our God prevail.” I have been doing so, through the night and into today. God’s Holy Spirit has entered into my heart bringing me His precious love, peace, and yes, even joy. This is His battle against evil. Upon reading Mario Murillo’s blog this morning, I found Holy Assurance, Be encouraged, dear Saints of Our God.

I’m processing the events in our nation and globally as best as possible with a proper spiritual lens as much as is possible because I’m staying sober and alert by being the His word, His truth daily. For we know we do not battle against flesh and blood but against the rulers, authorities, the cosmic powers in this present darkness and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore every morning I choose to put on the whole armor of God, to withstand in the evil day firmly. I choose to begin each day with His truth, the sword of the Spirit and pray daily and throughout the day when things arise at all times in the Spirit with thanksgiving making supplication for all the saints.

In this divisive world with so many angry people, so many people running to fight and turn against each other in violence and not in love, my husband and I had prayed so many times all through last year to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which we’ve been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience to bear with others in love, especially those who are in complete disagreement with us as believers even in the body of Christ and those who are name calling and bashing us and we prayed that we would BE EAGER to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Eph 4:1-3)

For whomever is president, Jesus is always King. God will always reign forever. We do not live for earthly kingdoms or put our faith in government but we seek and live for the Heavenly Kingdom of God. He will come to take His children home one day. To this I look forward to and will continue to be a light in the dark world and share the gospel with as many people as I can.

Dutch’s “Give Him 15” and today’s blog by Mario Maurillo are sources of strength, in addition to what the Lord told me on election day morning when I asked him to weigh in (“Be Still. Be Joyful. Be Exceedingly Glad because of what I am going to do today.”) Here’s Mario’s blog from today:

Someone has wrapped a noose around the neck of free speech and every other right we hold dear. Certain opinions are being choked to death in America. I get why tech giants are fine with wielding oppressive control over people’s opinions—I have never seen them as anything but greedy and power hungry. They are not, as some naïve ‘woke’ folk claim, “trying to save democracy.”

And yet, strangely, I feel a calm sense of hope amid all of this.

What I do not get is why many of the elements of the media, key intellectuals, and some mainstream institutions that have been wise and objective in the past are now strangely quiet during the censorship, silencing, and even the cancel-culture obliteration of many American lives. Such widespread acceptance of tyranny by them is totally new to America.

And still, I feel a great hope, even in this situation.

What is also new is the attitude of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, along with the Democrat Party. They have made it abundantly clear that they are not going to reach out to the millions who voted for Trump. They are moving on without us. No one has ever had that attitude after “winning” an election.

Does that sound like something is being forced on us? It should. 2020 has been a year full of things forced on the American people. Since they forced their election upon us, why would they feel any need to work with us?

What is happening to America is evil. Preplanned and premeditated evil. We are watching something that was hatched decades ago and is finally upon us. So why do I feel hope in a seemingly hopeless situation? Precisely because it is evil.

Genesis 50:20 says, “But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.” Those words were spoken by Joseph to his brothers who had sold him into slavery. That vicious act was exploited by God to promote Joseph into a position of royalty in Egypt, in order to save a nation from famine.

It is time for you to settle your spirit behind a historical fact. God has always dealt with evil in America, even when we did not deserve it. It is not by accident that ‘wokesters’ have tried to bury our history. It is there that we find the irrevocable evidence of God’s intervention in America. It is not simply the people of America that God loves, it is the idea of America. In order for that idea to be destroyed, you would first have to get past our omniscient and loving God.

Many believers are throwing in the towel too early. We could very easily see a miracle in a few days. That miracle would cause unprecedented nationwide convulsions. Or it could take longer. But one way or another, surely and eventually, the evil will be exposed and it will be punished.

God may do it by changing the tide of public opinion. Another way is by exposing the evil acts and those who have committed the evil. One thing has already begun: because Fake News outlets such as CNN have openly called for the shutting down of any news outlets that do not spout Democrat Party propaganda, such as One America News Network and Newsmax, Christian conservatives have been forced to build their own mass media—something they should have done long ago.

Another way may be the sudden groundswell of hunger for righteousness, which I see sparking mass conversions. The tide of revival is only just now beginning to crash upon our shores.

What the minions of Satan mean for evil, God will exploit for good, in order to save many. You can either let the images of blasphemy and arrogance drain your spirit or you can take your stand, lift up your head and anticipate the inevitable intervention of the Holy Lord of the Armies of Heaven!

I’m handling the storm by keeping my eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith. His ways are higher than mine, His thoughts higher than mine, so I will lean in and listen closely that I may be a light in this present darkness. I do not know the next steps, but I do know that He holds my hand every step of the way.

Father God, I come humbly before you and ask that You grant wisdom, strength, peace, and a holy boldness to me and my fellow sisters and brothers as we navigate these waters. May we keep our eyes on You, remembering that You already have the victory, promising us that You walk through the waters with us, that we will not, NO WAY, be drowned as long as we hold tight to You. Use us as instruments in our daily lives to show forth your goodness and love. We accept this call to be salt and light, to fish for men, to be fruitful and multiply. It’s about souls and always has been in your heart. Realign our hearts, direct our thoughts and motivations according to your purposes. Prepare hearts to receive as we go forth. Bring many into our nets and let your name be glorified, in Jesus name we pray, amen.

As long as I feed on the the Word of God, and claim His promises, I find renewed strength to deal with
personal challenges, political challenges, powers of darkness surrounding us.

I am seeking Jesus as the people did when He was the God/man (walking as a human among the people). I am rowing my boat, not literally, of course, across the sea to look for Jesus. I am ill, and need to be healed, and I know He can heal me if I can find Him. I will not give up my pursuit until I touch Him and feel His healing, peace, joy, and love which casts aside all my fears, doubts, and pain.

I pray His people will “seek Him” as some in the New Testament did when they lowered their friend through the roof so Jesus could touch and heal their friend. They would not let the crowds prevent them from their pursuit to get healing for their friend. Their unwillingness to let anything keep them from getting their friend to Jesus tells me I should have that same unwillingness to disallow anything from keeping me from His Word, prayer, and claiming His promises. He is faithful. He will not fail me if I seek Him.

Holding fast to the prophets’ words. 2 Chronicles 20:15-22: “Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s… Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in His prophets and you will be successful… Give thanks to the Lord, for His love endures forever…As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the enemy who were invading them and they were defeated.” Let us give thanks and sing praises of victory to the Lord. Therefore I am NOT praying for the inauguration or for the transition. God told Prophet Tracey Cooke that Biden would NOT be president. I pray that he would NOT be president even for a day. And I further declare that neither will Harris be the vice president or by default the president. In hope against hope, I’m holding fast to God’s promises.
I pray for God’s intervention at the appointed time. For His miracle deliverance. I believe we should not succumb to the narrative of what we see but to the narrative of the unseen, the substance of what we hope for and believe in with single-minded hearts anchored by faith in God.
Father, let Your grace fall upon the United States of America, that we are united in seeking the truth, truth about You, marriage, conception and life, and truth about the election fraud both domestic and foreign regarding deceit and interference, and about the RussiaGate fraud. Open our hearts to see the truth. Unshackle the hearts of all Americans to renounce the evil corruption, and to cling to You for the greatest revival of the USA. A revival with great benefits worldwide and especially for Israel’s benefit with America as their faithful ally. We pray for the fulfillment of America’s destiny for Your kingdom in Jesus’ name. Amen!

When God began to pour our His Spirit in Cambodia in the ’60s and’70s there was a great harvest. When the Communists surrounded Phnom Penh the great harvest was continuing.

We lost the communist revolution. It began as a Biological warfare virus to control Americans. Then they stole the election. NOW they have taken away our 1st amendment. They have 25,000 military troops protecting a FAKE president’s inauguration. Patriots and Christians have 3 choices. Flee, Fight or Fish. I choose to Fish for souls. America has been infiltrated by the Communists for years. Probably, started with Clinton. So for years they have been taking away our rights and stealing elections and convincing Americans that we are going further and further left, when in reality, we have grown further to the RIGHT!! They lie, cheat steal and kill and destroy. Our only choice is to turn our lives over to the LORD and pray for HIM to use us to be a witness!! God is able to work all things together for good.

Thanks for the opportunity to express how we are doing in the storm. I am thankful for the Intercessors for America who have given us a platform to join together as believers in our Lord and Savior as we pray and praise and cry and encourage each other during this stunningly horrific time in America.

We believed that God would hear us and answer our prayers with 4 more years of a President who not only loved our country but believed in the Biblical values that our forefathers fought and died for. But God did not answer our prayers as we expected. Now we have to understand that we have not been pleasing in His sight. The Church has become like the lukewarm church written about in Revelation. We remained silent for decades as abortion became legal, as God was removed from the courthouse, from schools, businesses and the public square.

Now we are in the refiner’s fire as we examine our ways and confess our sins. God is faithful and just and He loves us and will not forsake us. I pray we take this spiritual warfare challenge seriously as the Body of Christ and see what He will do if we get out of His way. Shalom brothers and sisters.

https://youtu.be/B5P2T72sDqA – a beautiful song by Steve Camp – “Back in the Furnace”

Oh, the flames are getting hotter
As I knew someday they’d be
But under the hands of a loving Father
He is refining me perfectly
And the fire consumes not my person
It’s burning away my impurities
It’s His way of saying “I love You”
But how strange it is to me

Oh, to be
In the furnace once again
Where the heat is so strong
Where it’s so hard to stand
I’m thirsty for some water
And I’m hungry for a friend
I know I’m being tested
But it feels like I’m being condemned
In the furnace again

There’s a bitter cup
We must all learn to drink from
Let it fill you up
Let it draw you closer to the Son
And with every taste
You’ll discover the wonder of
The race He’s making you ready for
It’s a race that you must run

You have begun
In the furnace once again
Where the heat is so strong
Where it’s so hard to stand
Are you thirsty for some water
Are you hungry for a friend
You know you’re being tested
But it feels like you’re being condemned
Back in the furnace again

Looking deep inside
I know He’s in control
Of my troubled soul
He’s breaking me of my pride
While in the Father’s hands
The Father understands
How low you can go

I don’t know why I’m in this situation
Except God has put me here
To give strength to my salvation
And to weaken all my fears
My faith is being tested
To be perfected takes many years
And when I think of how He loves me
It can bring this man to tears

As He’s leading me through
Through the furnace once again
Where the heat is so strong
Where it’s so hard to stand
I’m thirsty for some water
And I’m hungry for a friend
I know I’m being tested
But it feels like I’m being condemned
Back in the furnace again
Back in the furnace again
In the furnace again

      We don’t fully understand His ways, but we know that He is faithful. “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” It’s always good to search our hearts, and to continue in humility. But just because God didn’t answer like we expected Him doesn’t mean He is not going to act. “Fight the good fight of faith.” Don’t grow weary for in due time (at the appointed time), God will respond. Who will have the lamps filled with oil? The oil is the praise and thanksgiving of eager expectation and hope of God’s answer.

I truly have supported Trump for a long time. It is when he opens his mouth and speaks off script, that he had left such confusion.
Thanks so much for IFA…it has truly given me a different perspective and kept me on track. Praise to God that IFA has printed a list of Trump’s accomplishments. I have needed that to help counter all that our daughter continues to spew forth with her anti… stuff.
God prepared me for the election of Mr. Biden. My new mantra is what I titled this missive. Thanks that I have this perspective. Praise Him for all He has done!
Watch out world for how God is going to work. He turns all things for good!

God has a plan and their leadership right now is not aligned with God’s. Not now, who knows how far they will change in surrender to God, to respect the life of the unborn, holy marriage, and the US Constitution. May God have mercy on their souls and lead them to repentance.

It’s not over! There are many intercessors praying. At the Red Sea, Pharaoh’s army was behind them, and a seemingly impossible to cross sea, was in front of them. The instruction:
“Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord…”Exodus 14:13.
The word “stand” in Hebrew means “to set or station
oneself; to take a stand”. It is active. So our “stand” is to
believe our great God and His promises so that righteousness will prevail. God is on His throne and He is working. Let’s keep praising and glorifying Him so that He will receive all the glory when His will is
manifested in America and on the earth!

    YES! Its not over! I believe the body of Christ has been seeking His face and repentance taking place. I know He hears our cries .I know God is up to something. He’s not done yet. He has the final say.We do not deserve anything but judgment . He is merciful and full of grace. So we wait on Him. Thank you Jesus!

IFA, Thank you so very much for asking how we are doing? Would be hard to believe so many, or most is not reeling from all Covid has caused, the election, and etc. etc. Your concern, counsel, and shared loved for all has encouraged me this morning. Certainly, proves God’s Word again, “He does not leave us comfortless”.

“God bless us everyone”

We are told of these days, and how the evil will increase as we get closer to His return, for His bride the church in the rapture..
Put on the whole armor of God..Eph.6:11-18…I pray this all of the time…God will protect us..He will never leave us nor forsake us.
Blessings to you.

I believe the battle between the anti-Christ forces and God’s people has begun. It’s like Pharoah vs. Moses.Exodus and Revelation have many paralells. Israel dwelt in Goshen, a protected place. We can live under the blood, in Psalm 91 security. I feel we must continue to keep good morale by meditating God’s Word. Continue to keep our finances strong by tithing, giving, honoring Israel, and supporting missions and evangelism. You can’t out give God! And having “air power”, angels working in our lives as we pray, praise, and prophesy. Psalm 103,19,20. We have the winning weapons, and we can overcome the heathen, and the demons. That said, it won’t be easy. As for me, I pray I will never surrender, never bow my knee to baal in any way, I pray this for all God’s precious people in the USA and throughout the World. Hold Fast!

Why was Mary the only one waiting at the tomb after Jesus was crucified? Was it because they SAW him die and could not stand in faith. We need to stop watching the news watching what the enemy is doing and stand in FAITH that GOD ALONE has the power to raise America from the dead – and He Will. We must stand in FAITH believing and will be first to see AMERICA be raised from the dead!!!! TRUST / FAITH in God Alone!!!

I choose to meditate on Proverbs 3:5-6. My trust is not on who Leading our Nation but the King of kings and the Lord of lord’s. I am asking The Lord what I need to do in repentance, preparing, praying, to provide people to share the Gospel with. I know He is more than able to turn things around, to expose the enemies work and those willing to do it or have done it. In the bottom line His way is the perfect way. My favorite saying is :”But God”

I stand in Faith believing ‘It’s not Over’. God can still work miracles to reverse the fraudulent victory that the Liberals celebrate. The voices to believe our President Trump suffers defeat, and is finished seem to not have Faith to believe that we serve a God of Miracles. He can change and make happen what seems in the natural impossible. Our God gets the Glory as He turns the impossible circumstance into a Victory.I think of Gideon who was victorious with a small remnant against a legion of enemies. Also, the 3 Hebrew children thrown in the fiery furnace who declared, “our God is able to rescue, but if not, we will still serve Him.”
We must Pray, believe, and after having done all – Stand.

When we are in times like these when you don’t see the answers in the natural, we are moved to come close to Father God’s heart and hear what he is saying. This week I heard two encouraging words, one from our Pastors and the other from a well- known prophet. My Pastor had a clear revelation from God through scriptures the Lord led him to in Exodus 6, 7, ad 8. The authority that is wicked like that of Pharaoh, will say a word to release the authority for the judgement to begin. When Moses came into Egypt to speak on God’s behalf, the Pharaoh spoke and said, “Show a miracle for yourselves” This released the authority for Moses to throw his serpent on the ground and swallow up those of Pharaoh’s magician’s snakes because Pharaoh was trusting in witchcraft. This released the judgement of God to begin. We too are waiting for the word to be spoken that will release the power for his judgement to begin in our government, and the church.
Also the Prophet mentioned that as in the days of Noah people would be saying, “God cannot move once the inauguration takes place, but God says to us, “Is there anything too hard for God to do?” Jer. 32:27 Keep your eyes and heart on the Lord, and Praise him as though the work is done! You will see him move in power and glory!

Comforts Christians Have in the Lord Dear Friend, Christians are often down, disappointed, and feel deserted (Psalm 74:17-18). Sweet then are the comforts the Holy Spirit (John 15:26) Who then quickens and consoles, those who truly follow the Lord (Psalm 94:19-23), with thoughts of:

–God’s eternal love (John 3:16; I John 4:8), unchangeable plan and purpose, and covenant promises (I Kings 8:56; Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 7:21),
–Christ’s finished work on the cross (John 17:4), His rising from the dead (I Corinthians 15:3-5) so as to reign with the Father and be in and with us in intimate fellowship (John 17:20-23),
–the Holy Spirit’s enabling power and strength (Zechariah 4:6; Acts 1:8) and enlightening us with the truths of God’s Word in Christ in our daily walk (John 14:26).

So let us receive and enjoy God’s comfort in Christ’s presence in and with us and the renewing of the Holy Spirit (Titus 3:5-7) who comforts us in our time of need with the words of Jesus Christ (John 16:12-15) and motivates us to share this with others (II Corinthians 1:4).

Please read Psalm 27, and also keep this in mind from Psalm 23:

You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.

This has been a distressing time. Have and continue to pray for peace, evil to be banished, justice and laws to reign and protection for all defending America. Presidet Trump and his family have endured criminal attacks and danger all while working tirelessly for us. Then election fraud declared he lost. Grant him and all who have supported him peace and a sincere thanks from millions of supporters. I believe he will be vindicated. He MUST know how grateful America is for his many accomplishments and pray for another 4 years.

I refuse to listen to anyone acting like the MSM. FOX is not on my list of those worthy to be heard by me, and with this new info about Newsmax, they might join the list.

From statist, spinning, stealing media Oh Lord, Our God deliver us!

    I can’t thank you for your expressions. I am battling – truly battling to pray for Biden and those that will be quickly destroying our great country. Like Trump or NOT, he did more for the average American and truly loved AMERICA and AMERICANS. I am not scared because I know that GOD has his hands on his people. I am fearful for our youth, our grandchildren and pray for God’s mercy for them. I have to think of the poem Footprints in the sand, I know GOD is caring us believers thru the storm. I’m broken at the death that is coming to our great land at the hands of the democrats who truly hate and despise our country.

    I remain struggling as I pray for them, we are commanded by GOD to pray for our enemies and this is truly the hardiest thing I have ever been forced to do. Matt 4:43-48. Love your enemies and pray for those who
    Perce cute you… I know who holds our tomorrows and I know who holds my hand.

    Also praying that GOD will block those trying to remove NewsMax and Lou Dobbs, and Sean Hannity…. Truly we are under attack. I pray GOD will stop them all.

      Thanks for being so raw and honest. I don’t follow what’s up with the people at FOX or Newsmax or OAN, but I will pray. I kept thinking of the patriotic songs I used to sing in public grade school like “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” I need to look up the words to refresh my memory. Jesus said that it would be better for a millstone to be hung around one’s neck and he/she be thrown into the sea if he/she touched one of these little ones. Ps. 2

      That’s fine, people are free to disagree. I neither voted for Trump in the primaries, nor did I vote for him in the 2016 election because the polls for Trump’s lead in Florida seemed pretty solid. We had plenty of choices, so voted Constitution Party since I’d like to see more options for President than (D) or (R) for everybody, not because I disliked Trump. President Trump has proved himself to be an ally of freedom pretty much from his first day, and we appreciate all he has done to advance the religious freedoms we hold dear. He has also listened to advice from the wise (Judge Andrew Napolitano) for Supreme Court Justices and Senator Rand Paul’s advice concerning the Tenth Amendment when he was considering overriding the Democrat governors’ closure of their states. So there is much good about this administration, and I haven’t even mentioned the peace plans. As far as FOX goes, they still have a few people worth listening to. However, unless they change the overall spin to the left, (the MSM already has enough of that spin! So thanks but no thanks!) when I listen to them, it will not be on TV.

      I say amen to God blocking those trying to remove Parler, Newsmax, Sean Hannity, and Lou Dobbs from the airwaves. Censorship should have no place in a free country. Some of these platforms should be treated as monopolies and broken up.

      I also pray for Former Acting President Biden and Former Senator Kamala Harris to repent of their wicked ways, and seek salvation through faith.
