I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that our leaders would use wisdom and discretion as they spend our tax dollars. Help them to prioritize the allocation of funds appropriately, spending only on items that will truly help our country, and so that future generations are not saddled with increasingly crushing debt.

Eight trillion dollars. That’s how much President Joe Biden has proposed in new spending — in just the 2½ months since taking office. It’s an absurd figure…

And it’s overwhelmingly meant to transform the nation — to empower and enrich Democratic special interests, lock in permanent Democratic control and impose radical left-wing ideas.

Biden’s latest hit: $1.52 trillion in discretionary spending. That follows $1.9 trillion for last month’s American Rescue Plan, $2.3 trillion for Part I of his infrastructure plan and another $2 trillion or so expected soon for Part II.

That mind-blowing $7.7 trillion total doesn’t even count another $3 trillion or so in entitlement spending and $300 billion in debt-service costs; add that in, and you’re talking about spending that’s more than half the nation’s $21 trillion output.

Where would all the cash go? Mostly to Democratic allies and left-wing fantasies: unions and their members, Democratic states facing budget gaps, government bureaucrats, Green New Deal wish-lists and Dem-friendly corporations.

The non-defense discretionary budget Biden released, for example, grows a whopping 16 percent, including a 41 percent bump for the Education Department. Title I funding for the nation’s schools (and teachers’ unions) alone would spike 121 percent. (Never mind that the left-center Brookings Institution finds “little evidence” that Title I funds are “effective.”)…

Biden’s $2.3 trillion “infrastructure” plan similarly shells out hundreds of billions to benefit labor groups and their members…

The goal: to balloon unions’ ranks — and the dues they collect…

Then there’s the $350 billion for state and local governments…in the $1.9 trillion “rescue” package Biden already rammed through

No, every single push from this president is for a total transformation — a massive expansion of government, union power, Democratic control and Green New Deal boondoggles…

Look at the so-called “leader” of America! Should we be surprised that America is being “led” by one of the most greedy, corrupt, men around, and our country is being “sold out” by him and his administration? I agree, if Biden &Co. have their way, say goodbye to America, as we know it!! Our Republic is under great assault!
But, our help comes from the Lord, maker of heaven and earth! He alone, is able to turn what the enemy has meant for evil, to our good. He is our only hope!! We ask for His mercy!

We must not be distracted:

Discerning This Time and Season: Prayer for Israel (and the Nations) a 5 part Succat Hallel message

Rick Riding:
…I prayed for the prayer movement worldwide, that we would be sons of Issachar: sons and daughters of Issachar that we would discern, discern times and seasons, what God is doing, because there are many voices that could call us to this or that, and we can begin to get distracted.

I’ve also prayed it much for my home nation of America. …

But here’s what I felt. He spoke to me. He said, I could have quickly answered then if I only dealt with the fruit, but I’m going deeper. I’m going after the roots in nations in governments where people are doing second Chronicles 7:14 are, are humbling themselves, praying seeking My face, turning from their wicked ways. He said, my word is still true. I will hear from heaven forgive their sin and heal their land. But He said, the only way I can do that is by going for the roots and not just the fruits. And so during a period that seems like, you know, what is going on? God wants us to know.

I believe, that He is laying the axe….
