I Prayed have prayed
God, we pray that You would "drain the swamp." Bring truth and justice back to our federal government, Lord, and get everything back under control.

Is Washington truly a swamp? What do you think?

From The Wall Street Journal. Here’s one way to divide America’s politics. Republicans and conservatives think the Washington Swamp is real. Democrats and progressives don’t believe it exists. This division of belief matters more than the existence of UFOs because whether the Swamp is real looks likely to be an issue in the 2024 presidential election.

Who is praying on the wall?

 

President Biden gives his State of the Union speech next week, and no doubt he’ll describe his Washington as a city of bounty and benevolence.

Ron DeSantis disagrees. It was hard not to notice how, in his inaugural speech last month, the Florida governor went out of his way to describe Washington differently—unaccountable, a mockery of the rule of law, dismal, floundering, a binge.

These Swamp thoughts are set in motion by what might seem two unrelated news stories this week. But for those of us who believe, the Swamp covers a lot of damp ground.

The first was about the Justice Department and director of national intelligence telling the Senate Intelligence Committee they wouldn’t talk in detail to the committee about the Trump or Biden classified documents. The reason? It would get in the way of the special counsels appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland. Come again? The committee’s Sen. Mark Warner (D., Va.) had it exactly right about this mega-stonewall: “That just cannot stand.”

Days later this newspaper ran a story beneath the headline: “EPA’s $100 Billion Climate-Aid Windfall Spurs Turmoil.” It quoted an unhappy community organizer in New Orleans: “They passed all this stuff, and they committed funding for all this stuff, but then they didn’t actually write out how it’s going to work.” Even the supposed beneficiaries don’t know how to navigate through Mr. Biden’s green Swamp. …

About that $102 billion the Environmental Protection Agency plans to spend on climate by year’s end—10 times the agency’s annual budget—the chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee Rep. Bruce Westerman says plaintively, “Any time Congress channels billions of dollars toward undefined goals, it’s going to need rigorous oversight.” That’s what he thinks.

Democrats subdivided the $102 billion for every conceivable green goal—from iterations of environmental justice to low-carbon labeling on construction materials to such undefinable murk as corporate greenhouse-gas reporting—all of it distributed through a Swamp tributary system of nonprofits, community groups and local officials.

Lord, the people in our country need spiritual awakening. This includes all those working in the government who deny Your authority, Your existence. This is my prayer Lord. Sweep hearts clean. Awaken their souls to new life in You. This will change their worldview. In the meantime, protect our Republic from these men and women who desire their own plans or even those of the WEF and United Nations agendas, instead of Your plans. Do not allow their plans to succeed. Block every attempt to break the people and cause them to lose complete control of this nation. Thank You, Father. Amen.

Let us remember that it was never a time when any of this was actually designed for our benefit or for America’s benefit.. it is all subterfuge designed to sink our country..

so we could pray for God’s intervention.. and we can also pray for the Lord to rise up Godly legislators whether they are well known congressman and Senators already or whether they are barely known.. or whether they are Grassroots legislators citizen activists that have just entered into the legislative Arena from private Enterprise even if it’s on a blue collar level as long as they have the ability to learn quickly and to learn to lead-, let us pray that the Lord would raise up those who would govern righteously in our ranks and intervene-, miraculously..In Jesus name, Amen

Father come to our aid in this vile perversion of our constitutional and moral roots. Dispatch spiritual warriors to come against dark principalities and powers inciting, fueling and influencing our politics, policies. Sever their connections and confuse their strategies. Expose those who have plotted to turn the nation to evil, those who embrace destruction of moral and ethical values and bring all to justice. In Jesus’ Name.

No matter what happens or who does what? In Romans 14:11 TPT “As surely as I AM THE LIVING GOD, I tell you:’ ‘EVERY KNEE WILL BOW BEFORE JESUS AND EVERY TONGUE WILL CONFESS THE TRUTH AND GLORIFY ME.” Then in v12 THEREFORE, EACH ONE MUST ANSWER FOR HIMSELF AND GIVE A PERSONAL ACCOUNT OF HIS/HER OWN LIFE BEFORE GOD.”
