I Prayed have prayed
Father, restore our energy independence so that we are not reliant on evil leaders to meet our needs. You have given us an abundance here in America. Help us to steward it well.

The U.S. was energy independent under former president Donald Trump. That has quickly changed, and we are seeing the geopolitical consequences already with Russia.

Opinion by former Energy Security, Rick Perry, from Fox News. The consequences of Russia’s belligerence in Ukraine will, unfortunately, be even higher energy prices for Americans, and greater energy insecurity in Europe. American leadership must right the ship before it’s too late….

Over the past few years, Europe has pursued an extreme and unrealistic energy agenda and attempted a radical transition to fully renewable energy, but progress has been minimal and costly.

In 2020, less than 20 percent of the European Union’s electricity came from wind and solar. Germany alone, which now experiences soaring electricity prices, has gone from an electricity exporter to an electricity importer, largely due to former Chancellor Angela Merkel’s naïve termination of her country’s nuclear power plants….

Now Europe must face the consequences of following the advice of radical climate activists. But the reach of these consequences also extends to our borders where U.S. policymakers are pursuing similar policies that led Europe to this current energy shortage.

On day one, President Biden signaled the decline of America’s role as a reliable partner for Europe. He immediately rescinded authorization for the Keystone XL Pipeline and shortly afterward withdrew sanctions on Nord Stream 2.

Keystone XL was just the beginning of a disastrous trend. President Biden continues to allow and promote challenges to critical oil and natural gas infrastructure. There are still impending decisions around that corner that will either help alleviate market uncertainty in the coming months or compound the suffering of Americans and Europeans….

Oil prices have climbed above $100 per barrel, inflation stands above seven percent, and the fear of further supply disruptions have led European consumers to nervously purchase significant volumes of Russian oil – a move that only undermines the very economical costs we seek to impose on President Putin’s rogue regime. Some estimates indicate upwards of $65 billion in revenue for Russian oil giants. It is high time we recognize that pursuing policies that jeopardize domestic oil and gas production carries a very steep price for humanity….

There is no doubt that climate change is a challenge to be addressed. Still, our ability to tackle its challenges requires a stable economic foundation and security of supply to provide the flexibility to implement an ‘all-of-the-above’ energy strategy. American energy producers are the solution, not foreign adversaries….

The United States needs a renewed partnership with American energy producers, one that champions their willing contributions to economic and climate progress.

Father, Move the hearts of the politicians in America to turn on our energy sources we have here and be free from the tyranny of the evil leaders. I pray this in Jesus name.

Father, I pray that Your agenda would go forward without a hitch. We pray that the U.N.’s 2030 agenda would fall on its face, be destroyed and not come to fruition at all, not one part of it, including this move to do away with fossil fuels. Give supernatural knowledge and revelations for cities in the U.S. and around the world to better utilize the natural resources You have provided. Let us work toward ways to provide better transportation within cities. Help people to be better stewards of these natural resources. Thank You, Father. Amen.
