I Prayed have prayed
Lord we now stand as Jehoshaphat and the people of Israel did years before as we say, “We don’t know what to do but our eyes are on You.”

For weeks we’ve been hearing news accounts of voter fraud. Here are just a few of the issues we have learned about:


  • Fraudster attempts to register dead Americans as Democratic voters in Democratic stronghold Broward County (FL), a county infamous for voting discrepancies. (Remember hanging chads back in 2000?)
  • Almost 50,000 Ohio voters received the wrong mail-in ballots for the presidential election.
  • A professional “ballot harvester” in Texas is on video proudly declaring she has helped change approximately 7000 votes for people from Republican to Democrat.
  • Four Dozen Undelivered Ballots were found at Florida post office.
  • A USPS worker was charged with dumping ballots in KY.
  • Trash bags of mail were found outside a Pennsylvania postal worker’s home.
  • There are currently eight states with voting lawsuits with more expected to come.

I conducted a random survey to ask friends on social media about their experience with mail-in ballots. Here are just a few of the responses:

  • A couple in Illinois received ballots in the mail which they did not request. The ballots were ALREADY COMPLETED and filled out for them voting a straight Democrat ticket. They couldn’t have changed anything if they had wanted to. The instructions were clear, “just sign and return.” How many seniors or others received these type ballots and simply followed the instruction to sign and return as their votes were stolen?
  • Another individual in Hartford, IL went to vote early. As he tried to insert his ballot in the voting machine, it jammed. The election workers acted like it was no big deal. “Just put it in this pile and we will count them later,” he was told. He left taking his ballot with him.
  • Another friend explained that she and her husband received unrequested ballots from a state in which they hadn’t resided for over ten years.
  • The son of a couple resides in a nursing home because he is intellectually disabled (he’s in his twenties but with a mental capacity of about a twelve-year old). The couple that one of his case workers was helping him fill out a ballot…to vote Democrat. When they confronted the individual and explained how their son had no idea what was going on with the election or the candidates, the worker became enraged and insisted that he had a right to vote! Obviously as long as it was her way.

These are just a few of the issues we have battled in this election. Do I think this is all one-sided? No. But I do believe the reports we are seeing reveal there are definitely more issues on one side than the other. Bottom line, do we have reason to be concerned? Most definitely.

EXCEPT for the God factor!

I was reminded this weekend of the story of a man named Paul Schmidt who ran for Sheriff in California. He had received a prophetic word from his friend, Kris Vallotton, that surprised them both. “You shall be the sheriff of Trinity County.” It came out of the blue, but it resonated in Paul’s spirit and he began to act.

He was a deputy sheriff at the time and quit his job to run for sheriff. There were nine other candidates on the ballot in the primary. Paul took fifth or sixth place. He didn’t even come close!

So what happened?

A few days later Paul sensed the Lord speak to him that he was to be a write-in candidate on the ballot for sheriff in the general election. What that means is his name would be nowhere on the ballot. Voters would have to walk into the voting booth and write his name in for sheriff. Now remember, he already lost big when his name was on the ballot, so how on earth could he win when he had to be a write-in?

The result? He won by a landslide when his name wasn’t even on the ballot!

For a year afterwards, he heard testimonies from people—most who were not even Christians—who said, “I went into the voting booth and I heard a voice say, ‘Write in Paul Schmidt.’” Some recounted that the voting machine they were using wouldn’t work as they tried to submit their vote and then they heard a voice say, “Write in Paul Schmidt.” It was the God-factor.

What is going to happen November 3? I believe we are about to see the God factor. (I wrote about it on my blog with an encouraging prophetic word regarding the election this past week.)

Yes, there has been enormous voter-fraud. Yes, we know they are trying to ensure that votes can continue to be counted after the election. Yes, we hear of chaos, lawlessness, and disruptions planned for the evening of November 3 and after.

None of that matters as we remember, there is a God factor and God is greater than any voter fraud or attempt to steal this election and destroy this nation. Stand fast for we will see the salvation of the Lord!

Lord, we thank you that you are greater than any attempt to change Your intended outcome for this election. You have heard our prayers and the cries of the Remnant. Thank you, Lord, that you have heard our cries. We believe we will see Your mighty hand displayed in our nation so that there is no doubt that You have intervened and that You created a divine intervention and a divine disruption to dispel the work of the enemy. We stand fast in anticipation of what You will do.

I am really discouraged right now! questioning everything. All the prophetic words that Trump was going to win. I need your prayers.

    Anne, peace be still in the name of Jesus. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever Hebrews 13:8. God did not give us a spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind. Trust God, even the enemy comes “like” an angel of light the sins done in darkness Will be brought forth to light. Remember in the day of pharaoh when Moses came to him the Pharaohs prophets mimicked Moses when he laid down his stick it became a snake, BUT…. Moses’s snake ATE ALL of the other snakes from the false prophets. Meaning we just need to wait dear sister for God’s hand to move in this situation.
    Like the Lord says in His Holy Word
    Psalms 46:10,
    Be Still and Know That I AM God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.
    We hope this helps you and brings you peace. Lastly Proverbs 3: 5-6
    Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path. Be blessed. ✝️

      I understand your feelings very well Anne. I read the book ‘Blitz’ and was so encouraged to think Trump would win handily! I have such a hard time understanding how any red blooded American can vote for a radical and socialistic platform! Still I have to remember Rom 8:28 on which I have stood many times – “In all things God is working for GOOD to them that love the Lord and are the called according to His purpose”. Hey, so we don’t know what’s ahead but we know He’s already there! And the old song “We will understand it better by and by” is so true – in fact that’s what Jesus told Peter “There’s much more to tell you but you can’t handle it right now…” Our God is glorious and He cannot be mocked. When we cannot understand what’s going on, stand on His promises.

      Thank you – Proverbs 3:5-6 is my life verse. Thank you for your prayers. It was a hard day yesterday. I am walking in the presence of our Holy God that is keeping me. As I said below, I opened my bible in Acts and the word written on top of the page was FAITH! I stand with all of you and continue to pray. Thank you for the encouraging words of FAITH.

    Have faith Anne “ These six things the Lord hates ,yes seven are abomination to Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that she’d innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that a swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren” Proverbs 6:19-19. God is not pleased with those who have done these things. He is faithful, and the prayers of the saints have gone up. The remnant have humbled themselves ,and prayed. We repented for this nation ,and turned from our wicked ways. We have sought Him continuously. ( 2 Chronicles 7:14) You know that God is faithful. He will heal our land because He said He would. I pray that He will sweeten the fruits of the spirit within you especially patience . Hold on to His unchanging hand for He is holding this nation right now. I ask all these things in Jesus’ name amen.

      November 5, 2020

      Thank you – The presence of the almighty God is keeping me. I opened my bible in Acts. The word written on the top of the page in my bible was faith. Thank you for the prayers. Yesterday was a day for me to trust God in all circumstances – I continue to pray and stand.

Karen, you definitely nailed it with all the voter fraud incidents you listed, but you lost me when you answered the question of this being one sided and you said no. Of course this is one sided. Saying “probably”, would have been a better answer.

    November 3, 2020

    Good article I agree until that word which sounded like a condemnation — I would use the word “possibly” if you can’t name or document an actual plan, incident, or operation like the Democrats have going on. It’s not the conservative side that is against voter ID, delaying results, etc. which pretty much says it all.

Oh Father, I voted this morning and I can’t stop praising You. I am so excited because I know that the voice of Your Bride is rising today with its vote. No more ‘masked’ silence, but a new song we sing with one voice. “No more darkness and fear. We will rise up, Father, and no longer hide behind our private worlds. We will say no to darkness and we will build Your Kingdom of Light and freedom.” People will walk out of their dark cave of fear as You, Jesus, bid them to come into Your saving light to a land of hope and joy. The voice of Your Bride will be heard around the world, Lord, and this nation will bless Israel and all nations as it was meant to from its foundation.
“God bless America, Land that I love, stand beside her, and guide her, Through the night, with the Light from above!”

Lord let the gallows built through the Russia collusion, Ukraine, impeachment, deep state, the spy agencies, corruption by the governor’s & mayor’s who allowed their cities to be decimated for nefarious reasons, blm, antics, the elites all who think they are above the law, & thumb their noses in the face of God be used to their shame. In Jesus name I pray.

Father God, You’ve heard Nancy Pelosi’s hreats against You and Your anointed. You know the plans she has in conjunction with the George Soros Democracy Alliance group, the Indivisible organization, and probably many other likeminded organizations who despise You and Your plan, purpose, and calling for our nation. May You thwart every satanic, demonic plan they have to commit voter fraud, to contest election results, and to somehow push to have the presidential election decided by the House. There is probably much more evil they are planning, many wicked contingency plans, etc. and I come against all this Goliath of demonic activity, as David said in his time, in the Name of the LORD of Hosts, the God of the faithful in America, whom Pelosi and all her cohorts are defying. May this day the LORD strike down every one of their demonic schemes once and for all so that the world will know there is a God in America. In the Mighty Name of the King of kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ, Amen.

Karen, thank you for this. The comments you personally received on your blog are mind blowing! If you received that many personal testimonials, it makes me wonder how many more have been unreported. Thank you for doing this personal research and for your prayers for our nation. To God be the glory that He is bigger than all these things.

We are aware of your great mercy and love for your children – already inside your house and ones still to come in. We also are aware that there is a clash of 2 kingdoms happening right now! Your Kingdom comes, your will is done NOW on earth as (in the same way) it is in heaven. Evil always discounts God – we, the Body of Jesus Christ, put our trust completely in You, God of the angel armies. Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered! AMEN!

Dear Heavenly Father,

As you shut the mouths of the lions when Daniel was in the den, so we now ask you to hear the cries of your people that all attempts of Satan and his minions in their attempts to tamper with this election will be destroyed. We are looking to you Lord God for mighty miracles as we stand in awe and wonder to see your power and might manifested. We look to you alone Lord for your perfect will to be accomplished.

Bowing before your throne, I am reminded of your word that directs us to: “Be still and know that I am GOD.”

Thank you Heavenly Father for hearing the cries of your people

Your servant, Kathi

So be it!
We decree the overthrowing of the kingdom of darkness today. Like David, we pick up our stones and take them wit us. At the right time, we’ll select the perfect stone to hurl at the enemy and he will be mortally wounded by the Hand of God intervening!
Who is the enemy to mock our God?!
By faith, we cut off the head of the spirit of Marxism,
We cut off the head of socialism,
Of radical feminism,
Of racism,
We cut off the head of abortion-
And we give God the glory for completely destroying your enemies!
Holy Lovers of God, ARISE!
War for the Kingdom with song, with passion, with faith-
God, have your way in our nation-
It all belongs to YOU!

Abba, dark clouds surround you. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Fire spreads ahead of you and burns up all your foes. We ask this day for your fire to consume every unjust and fraudulent ballot. Your lightning flashes out across the world. Send forth your light and truth across America in this day and in this hour. Overturn the tables of the wicked. Destroy their unbalanced and unjust scales. We are glad and will rejoice, because of your justice, O LORD! For you, O LORD, are supreme over all the earth; you are exalted above all gods! Protect and influence our election. Whisper the name of Donald J Trump to believers and unbelievers alike at the polls today. Protect us and rescue us from the power of the wicked. We rejoice in you and praise your holy name! You are our hope! We love you and adore you And pray these things in the holy, mighty name of Jesus, Amen!
