Father God, I feel led this morning to pray for protection for this state- and this nation- from the outside influences that would tear it apart and bring it down. Protect us from foreign investors that would buy our land and our businesses for evil purposes- to co-opt them for purposes contrary to your will. Protect our farmers and those in our food supply chain, our power grid and those who build and maintain it, our water supply and all involved in it, our education system and all the educators and administrators, our military and first responders from all those who would interfere with their protection of others, our leaders and legislators who lead our state and our country….protect them all and all of us from the harm planned and orchestrated by those who have invaded our land and those outside who would seek to harm our way of life with which you have graciously blessed us. May no weapon formed against us prosper. Forgive us our sins and lead us in the way of your love and light. In the precious name of our Savior I pray.

Father God, I pray for our precious state. I repent of those things we have done and the directions we have moved that are displeasing to you. I ask your forgiveness and mercy. We are on the cusp of a critical election and I ask you to raise up leaders in this state from governor to the leaders of the smallest town and all offices in between who love you and seek to do your will. We desperately need you Lord. Let this state be a beacon and leader of states in all things so that you may be glorified. In Jesus precious name I pray. Amen.

Praise You Lord You sit enthroned forever. I pray for the state of North Carolina today. Arise and have compassion and show your favor to your servants. Let the nations fear the name of the Lord all the kings of the earth revere Your glory. You are faithful and Your promises are true. In Isaiah you say Your word that goes forth shall not return void, but shall accomplish and prosper what You please. Thank you Father in heaven for looking down from Your sanctuary on high to hear the groans of prisoners and release those condemned to death. May Your name be declared in Zion and his praise in Jerusalem when the peoples and kingdoms assemble to worship the Lord. Pour out your mercies upon this state today Glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus. Amen

I invite the Holy Spirit to permeate our education system from the universities on down to our daycare. I decree that there is no gender confusion but that we ARE created in the image of God and that anyone in positions that support anything contrary to be removed. Every book contrary to this Biblical truth be removed! And I pray for those confused to find Godly help and guidance. I plead the blood of Jesus over every child/youth in our state and boldly tell you, satan, to get your hands off of them -from the unborn on! I decree that the roots of slavery and racism are being uprooted and that healing will take place. In the mighty name of Jesus!

Father, I pray for wisdom for our elected officials. The heart of the king is in your hand to turn it withersoever you wish. I pray that their hearts will be turned to You, Father. To stop the insane direction they are going, and to look to You, Your Word, for guidance. I pray that they will care about what kind of country we are leaving our children and grandchildren. In Jesus Mighty Name I Pray 🙏. Amen.

Father I proclaim the state of North Carolina to be a kingdom building state and every leader be infused with truth and strong values based on God’s words included in our declaration of independence . We come against every imposed idea of unstable economical development that would cause this great state to turn from our forefathers intended purposes. Father grant this state to lead the way for other states and nations to follow, in Jesus name , Amen!

Father God I ask in the name of Jesus Christ that you would guide our legislators back to the Covenant that our Forefathers had with you, and that our state would lead a move toward a personal relationship with God and our Savior Jesus Christ. Let righteousness return to our schools, and help us to shun all evil, and strive for the faith that was delivered first to the saints of the early church. Let America shine as a beacon for the gospel. I as this petition in the name of Jesus. Amen

Lord I pray for our leaders in the great state of North Carolina. I pray that they may turn to you for guidance and direction with each and every decision they make affecting our citizens and especially our children and elderly as well as women. Keep them from bowing to pressure from the ungodly and those who would do harm to the most vulnerable in our society. I ask this in Jesus name.

Father I thank you that you are a good father. One who loves his children more than we could ever imagine.
We are a nation that has turned our backs on you. I stand in the gap asking for forgiveness and thanking you that you are a merciful Father.
I pray that North Carolina will not be a sanctuary state.
I pray for our leaders and ask that you give them wisdom and understanding when making decisions for our state. I pray they weigh the consequences of their decisions and seek your face in all matters.
Visit our leaders in dreams and visions that they may see your heart and respond accordingly.
You alone are worthy and I thank you that we are still a great nation. May the body of Christ rise up and stand in the gap for this nation, the leaders, and the citizens of this great nation.
To God be all the glory. Amen.

Holy Spirit, fall fresh on us, Your church, Your Bride! Let us be a sweet aroma to Your nostrils. Give us the desire to want to and be Holy and filled with your precious fruits. Let us be focused on You and nothing else. Prepare our hearts and minds for the harvest. May we always be ready to share Your love with others. Give us Lord boldness and the willingness to serve You and Your people with the talents you have bestowed to us. May your Glory shine in us for the world to see! I pray all this in Jesus’ name, Amen!

GOD , our only hope during times of sinful behavior and ignorance of not obeying YOUR WORD , is the result of your children becoming sheeple being led towards slaughter by demonic force. We have gone about our lives ignoring those who popularize a Sodom and GEMORRAH type mentality as normal. We now think being inclusive is alright. We have turned our backs on you and now this evil has been indoctrinating our precious children. We pray for your guidance and courage to stand up and follow YOUR WORD. All it takes are a few GODLY people to do nothing. We will throw away the most blessed nation YOU have ever provided for the world. FATHER, I pray you will help your people follow YOUR WORD and YOUR Will and help restore America 🇺🇸 to once again truly stand as ONE NATION UNDER GOD ! Help us to elect leaders who have the courage to speak YOUR NAME , and be unashamed to do so. Help LT. Governor Mark Robinson to continue to stand strong against the current rhetoric of inclusive politics and revive North Carolina to be proud again to be a BIBLE BELT State. Please GOD , lead us as your children, back to YOU.
In JESUS’ name,

Father God, our Abba Father, our Good, Good, Father, the Almighty God, the Great I AM that I Am, Jehovah Jireh our God Who Provides, Jehovah Rapha our God Who heals…not only individuals, it starts there, but spreads out to communities, cities, states, and nations…we confess Lord God, in Jesus’ Name that we need a great move of Your Holy Spirit in the State of North Carolina to bring healing from sin…Lord Jesus, we’ve taken our eyes off You, and when we do that …just like Peter, we start to sink! But let us be like Peter who had the faith in the first place to step out the boat…and when he did start to sink he called out to You, Jesus, to help him…and You did, Jesus!! Lord God, in Jesus’ Name, we need you in the state of NC, help us have saved, God fearing people as our state leaders and city leaders. “For the fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom ( from Ps. 111:10). Thank You, LORD, for the leaders we do have that have a personal relationship with You, Jesus, by grace through faith, and who are working tirelessly to bring godly change back to our state and country, and all over the world. “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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land, says You, Lord ( II Chro. 7:14).
In Jesus’ Name, Gracious Lord God, help us, Your people, those of us saved and washed in the Blood of Jesus by faith and repentance of our sins, help us Jesus to “humble “ourselves” under Your Mighty hand, Lord God, and You will exalt us in due time.” In Jesus’ Name, help us pray Lord God, as never before: fervently, sincerely, specifically, persistently, enthusiastically and with hope and expectation to see a mighty move of Your hand across this state, nation and world. We thank You God, that You have answered so many prayers already, as we have begun to seek Your face more and more for our state, nation and world. To You alone be the glory for Your wondrous and marvelous acts towards the child of men…great is Your faithfulness…but there is much more changes needed to help us hold to godly values, as taught in the Scriptures, under the covenant of grace that saves…not the covenant of Law that leads to only death. Help us all, in Jesus’ Name, Merciful Father, to “love You, with all of our hearts, souls, minds and strength” and to “love our neighbors as our selves”…meaning as You love them…and our neighbors are not just the people we live by …but every person we come in contact with each day. “They will know us by our love.” So, in Jesus’ Name, Loving Lord God, give all Your sons and daughters, great love for You, Your Son, and Holy Spirit and for each other, and for others. In Jesus’ Name, help “we the people” hold to the Scriptures and the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights that we will remain a free people. In Jesus’ Name and Blood, forgive us for over spending on wrong things, as individuals, as cities, as states, as a nation and as a world. In Jesus’ Name, Trustworthy Lord God, help us seek Your face and spend as You tell us too…on what You tell us too…not as we want too. Thank You for those in NC who have done a great job with our budget and You, Lord know who they are. You want us all as individuals and as cities, states, nation and world to owe no one nothing…help us all to get back to that mind set and help us do it!! Nothing is to hard for You, Lord God! In Jesus’ Name and Power, Lord God, put and end to this costly inflation, that people can afford to live and take care of their families, but help us trust in You for our needs until You answer, and after You answer our prayers. “Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for You, God are our Refuge (from Ps. 62:8).” In Jesus’ Name, help Americans have a desire for good, godly job skills. Help us, in Jesus’ Name, to not be afraid of hard work…and to do it all for the glory of You, God, and trusting You, to help us do it. In Jesus’ Name, Almighty God, deliver individuals, cities, states, nations and world from drug addiction, and other
addictions of all kinds…let us not turn to things that are only hurting us and killing us, because we have placed them as idols before You, Lord God…but help us turn and trust You, Lord God and Jesus Who is our Overcomer. We are to have no other God but You! In Jesus’ Name, Word, Power and Authority…thwart every plan of the wicked that want to hurt us and take over our nation and our world…from within and without…”for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but are mighty to You, God, to the pulling down of strongholds.” Through the prayers of Your people, LORD Most High, in Jesus’ Name, begin even right now to open the eyes of the blind who have fallen for the lies of the enemy in the CCP, May the scales fall off their eyes and May they in multitudes have a Damascus Road, salvation experience just as Paul did. You are the same God now, as You were then…and salvation is Your heart for people …even those doing horrible things…You, love them, You created them, and You want them saved that their future is not destruction. In Jesus’ Name, help us not hate but pray for our enemies…that You, Lord God, will give Jesus the authority to come and save them, that they too can be made right with You, Lord God. In Jesus’ Name, May any ties with the CCP in NC be stopped in it’s tracks immediately Lord God, by the Powerful Blood of Jesus!! In Jesus’ Name, May NC, Father God, be a state that stands for life at conception…because that is Your truth ( Ps. 139). In Jesus’ Name, Lord God, thwart every evil work going on in NC and in science to bring about evil trough artificial intelligence ( AI)…Your for people Lord God that You created …not AI’s that man is playing God and creating…that can only end badly as no AI will ever have a soul…they can never be saved or know You Lord God…so they will be in peoples control, how scary is that!! Very!! In Jesus’ Name, remove such things from our state as this is not of You, Lord God, and will end badly for us all. In Jesus’ Name, May only want can be used rightly and justly be allowed to take place here and around the world. In Jesus ’ Name, May anything meant to harm us be stopped by Your Mighty Hand, Lord God, across this earth. In Jesus’ Name give NC leaders godly discernment and wisdom to see what’s really going on at all times. And in Jesus’ Name help them make right choices and represent us well as “we the people.” Help us as “we the people” represent You well, Lord God. Let us return in Jesus’ Name, to do unto others as we would have them do unto us ( from Matt. 7:12). Godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come ( from I Tim. 4:8). Your kingdom come Your will be do, Lord God. As we place our trust in You as sovereign Lord of all!! In Jesus’ Name we pray believing that You will bless Your people with peace no matter what…”I will lie down and sleep in peace, for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety ( Ps. 4:8). Amen.

I see the prayer call for March 10th is cancelled Father. I am asking for You to initiate prayer today, tomorrow and every day beyond Friday for this great state. I am praying for everyone who is active in this privilege and especially those who do not understand how honoring it is to pray for one another. I am praying for Roy Cooper, Mark Robinson, Josh Stein, Thom Tillis, Elaine Marshall and Ted Budd. I am praying that the behavior You expect from us will be realized in these leaders and those unmentioned. You have shown us what is good and say, we are to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with You. I am praying this is demonstrated in the lives of all North Carolinians as we become a beacon of encouragement for the other 49 states. I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen

Father, You are Light and when we accept your precious gift of salvation, You place that light in us. We have this treasure in earthen vessels. Forgive us for hiding that light. Darkness does not remain where light is. The state of our nation is evidence of our sin. Lord we have hope that though we are like Gideon’s army whose weapon was a clay pot with a light inside, Lord we desire the breaking necessary in our lives for that Light to shine forth.

Thank you Lord for being able to express my biblical views on marriage between a man an a woman. I would not be able to express it if a man and man or a woman and woman were married because they can’t be fruitful and multiply as The Word of the Living God says. This is out of the order of what God says. The only reason this is favored because people care more about fulfilling there own pleasures and what they want to do.
Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me, especially myselfs needs or pleasure or wants.
I am to be in God’s order and His way and His Truth. If I do not follow what The Lord God who created me and this earth, which is His and He gave to us to be fruitful and multiply, then I will be judged accordingly. I am praying and decreeing that God’s Word will not return to Him void but it will accomplish everything He says. I will be a willing earthen vessel used by My Father God In Jesus Name to be about His business. Amen and Amen

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for allowing my family and I to live in the state of North Carolina. I know there are good Christian roots in this state and I just ask that we would come back to those Christian roots. There are people flocking here from all over, and I pray You would make us workers in the greatest harvest the world has ever seen. May we be obedient to Your call on our lives. Restore the roar in North Carolina. That was prophesied over our state, and You know exactly what that means.

Father God, I pray for lieutenant governor Mark Robinson this morning. Father, thank you for your mercy and your love your grace in giving us a righteous leader. Thank you for his passion for the people of this state and more importantly for your truth and for your word. Would you guard him, his heart and his mind. Protect his lovely wife and their marriage. Lord deliver him from temptation and keep his path straight. Expand his influence and give those around him ears to hear and eyes to see. Lord would you refresh his spirit and give him victory over any attacks of the enemy. I declare that no weapon formed against him shall prosper as us promise us in your word. Strengthen him to continue serving this state for many years to come!! Amen!

Father, I pray for each leader in North Carolina today. I ask for mercy to the ones who have allowed the enemy to use their votes to side with an evil agenda. May they quickly repent and turn from their wicked ways.

We pray this for all the Supreme Court Justices and their families: If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; (Ps 91:9-11)

Tharesa Lee
June 13, 2022

Father God, Lord, may the scales drop from our eyes and Your Word take hold in our eyes; that we will have a clear understanding, a revelation that You are the Creator. It is You that have created us and not we ourselves. Your word is truth. “O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night— but even in darkness I cannot hide from you. To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to you. You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭139:1-2, 5, 7-8, 11-13‬ ‭NLT‬‬.

Heavenly Father, as you tell us to put on our spiritual armor to prepare ourselves for battle- right now – in the state of NC- discussions are occurring around joining the Convention of States. We know You see the abuse of this nation that has been occuring . This was not your plan for a free country. Lord, we confess our corporate sins of murder, rage, greed, desire for power and humbly ask You to return us to self governing states of civility. In Jesus name, AMEN

The New American » Constitution/Politics » Convention of States Board Member Co-authored Anti-2A “Conservative Constitution”
Convention of States Board Member Co-authored Anti-2A “Conservative Constitution”
by Steve Byas December 20, 2021
Facebook Twitter Linkedin
For years, many constitutional conservatives have been warning fellow conservatives about being taken in by the Convention of States (COS) Project and others calling for a constitutional convention to alter our present Constitution. Warnings that such a convention could result in scrapping the document that created our present constitutional republic have been ridiculed — with convention proponents arguing that they are not wanting an entirely new document, but only want to rein in the federal government.
Here is more cause for concern: A Legal Advisory Board member of COS has co-authored a model “Conservative Constitution” for the Constitution Center’s Constitution Drafting Project as a replacement for our present document, potentially to be adopted at any constitutional convention — or, as advocates prefer to call it, a “Convention of States.”
That board member is Robert P. George, a supposed conservative, whom COS Action President Mark Meckler calls “the foremost conservative constitutional scholar in America.” George occupies an endowed professorship at Princeton, previously held by progressive Woodrow Wilson. (Interestingly enough, while at Princeton, Wilson advocated drastically altering our form of government, to make it more like the British system.) George is a member of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) who “fiercely opposed” the candidacy of Donald Trump in 2016, later calling Trump’s efforts to restrict immigration “unjust.”
This background should explain why, while George’s draft of a new constitution for America is called the “Conservative Constitution,” the document is actually quite radical in places.
No doubt supporters of the constitutional right to keep and bear arms will be rightly alarmed at the draft’s language on that subject:
Neither the States nor the United States shall make or enforce any law infringing the right to keep and bear arms of the sort ordinarily used for self-defense and recreational purposes, provided that States and the United States in places subject to its general regulatory authority, may enact and enforce reasonable regulations on the bearing of arms, and the keeping of arms by persons determined, with due process, to be dangerous to themselves or others. [Emphasis added.]
Those familiar with the rhetoric of the anti-gun Left will quickly recognize that this portion of the draft creates opportunities for federal and state governments to so regulate the private ownership of firearms to render such a right practically null and void.
But the draft goes far beyond essentially gutting the right to keep and bear arms.
As one reads through the draft, its similarity to the language used by the Founding Fathers is striking. Mixed in with that language, however, are changes that, rather than making the document friendlier to the concepts of limited government and liberty, would create a constitution transferring vast swaths of power to the federal government.
The “Conservative Constitution” would reduce from two to one the number of senators that would represent each state. While returning the election of senators to the respective state legislatures (rather than through a popular vote as required under the 17th Amendment) is a good thing, the draft adds language that is silly at best, and dangerous at worst. “Before taking office, each Senator shall pledge by oath or affirmation to promote the common good and long-term welfare of the nation and not the interests of any party or class.”
As it stands now, each member of Congress takes an oath to follow the Constitution of the United States, an oath that is routinely ignored by almost all members. We can only speculate how promoting the “common good and long-term welfare of the nation” might be interpreted. Some members might decide that following the restrictions of a written constitution is not for the common good and long-term welfare of the nation.
The draft also modifies the impeachment process, lowering the threshold for conviction from two-thirds to three-fifths. Presently, the grounds for the removal of a president from office are limited to four offenses — treason, bribery, and high crimes or misdemeanors. This draft only says that the House “shall set forth specific grounds in written articles of impeachment.” In the two Trump impeachments, advocates of his removal from office tried to skirt the four constitutional grounds, charging him with the more ambiguous “abuse of power,” which is, of course, not mentioned in the present Constitution. Under the draft’s proposal, Congress would have no limitations on any chosen grounds to remove a president from office.
Not only does the document make it easier for Congress to remove a president from office, it makes a dramatic change in how that person is to be elected, specifically requiring a “national popular vote” to choose the president. Thus, the draft proposes to eliminate the Electoral College system that we now use. And, the draft removes the requirement for a president to be a natural-born citizen, changing that to “any” citizen.
Under the provisions of the proposed “Conservative Constitution,” Congress is given the power to “create a central bank with the authority to issue currency and to make it legal tender for debts,” and to expand the power of that central bank in order to “protect its independence.” The central bank we now have — the Federal Reserve — already possesses immense power, but this draft proposes that a central bank be given even greater “independence” from our elected officials.
Finally, the draft proposes that “there shall be nine judges of the supreme court” — arguably a good thing — who shall hold office for 18 years, with a vacancy occurring every two years by staggering the terms. If a judge were to die, resign, or be removed by impeachment before the end of his term, “a new judge shall be appointed for the duration of the term only.” This is a proposal that has received much support from the Left, angry that President Donald Trump was able to nominate one-third of the present Supreme Court.
In fairness, there are good provisions included in this draft, but that raises a very serious question. If a provision is worthy of changing the fundamental law of the country, then our present method of amending the Constitution should be sufficient. What we do not want is a wholesale change of our Constitution, which would include the abolition of the Electoral College, the gutting of the right to keep and bear arms, and other such bad provisions.
The very fact that a Legal Advisory Board member for the Convention of States Project has proposed a new model Constitution should serve as further evidence that an Article V Convention could open up our present Constitution to massive revisions, or even being replaced by an entirely new document. Our present Constitution is not the problem. The problem is that our public officials, in all three branches of government, do not adhere to it.
Instead of expending energy and money promoting a Convention of States, citizens should focus their efforts on electing good men and women to Congress and the presidency. At best, a convention would meet, adopt a few positive reforms, and adjourn. At worst, the convention would meet and overthrow our present system of government. As the draft demonstrates, it is highly unlikely that we would have a better constitution than the one James Madison, George Washington, and the other Founders crafted back in 1787. As the late Justice Antonin Scalia opined, our century is a poor one in which to write a constitution. Could anyone elected to such a convention today produce a document as good as the one adopted in the 18th century?
This coup d’etat against our republican form of government can be stopped by our state legislators, but citizens informed of the dangers of a constitutional convention absolutely have to let those state legislators know those dangers.
One cannot presume that they know what is wrong with having a constitutional convention. Even legislators who believe in our form of government can be misled by those intent on destroying our institutions. We must counter propaganda, such as this coming from the Constitution Center, with accurate information on the dangers of a constitutional convention.

I thank you, Lord, that even now as I pray you are raising up a new generation of pro-life young adults in NC that desire to show your Glory to all. Protect these students as they spread your truths about abortion. Protect the minds of every child ( pre-k on) from worldly thinking . Raise up and place biblical leaders, Lord,, in every branch of government in NC. Give us all Godly confidence to declare “God is NOT Dead.”
In your Mighty Name, Jesus- Amen

All-powerful, all knowing. Living & Loving God…Thank You that You are Abba Father, Friend, and Holy God!! Our Way Maker. We “lift our eyes to the hills from whence coming our help our help comes from the Lord the Maker of Heaven and earth (from Ps. 121).” Father we ask Your hedge of protection around North Carolina schools…and especially Morganton, NC schools asking Your ring of fire round about them!! Every Public School. . Every Private School. Every Magnet School. Every Elementary School. Every Middle School. Every High School. Every College. Every Trade School, etc…Lord God Almighty, may these needless and pointless shootings that take innocent lives cess in the Name and Blood of Jesus!! Help every young person in NC come to know the value of life as You see it Gracious Lord God…and it is precious….and that they are precious to You, Loving God…so precious “You sent Your Son to die for them (John 3:16-17).” Instead of CRT may Your Words of Truth reign from Your Word…for “where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom!” May prayer to You, Lord God, be gladly brought back into NC schools…and all the schools around this nation and the world …”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 will I hear from Heaven and heal their land.” Thank You God for Your great and precious promises!! Help us fulfill the part we are responsible for from Your promise above. Help us stand on Your promise of healing for our dry and thirsty land…as a deer pants for steams of water let our souls thirst for You in NC, and across this nation and across our world. Bring salvation to the lost souls who stand in need of transformation and make them all new creatures in Christ Jesus the Lord!! Help prodigals or those backslidden to come running up the road into their Father’s open arms that have been waiting all along!! In Jesus’ Name, Blood and Word do away with every bit of racism in NC and Morganton schools …let no unholy agenda of any kind confuse students of who God has called them to be. For we know confusion is not from You God…but from the enemy. In Jesus’ Name, Blood, Word and Power let every lie of the enemy be done away with coming against all students, all teachers, all the schools staffs…rescue them out of all their troubles!! In Jesus’ Name we pray believing Who triumphed over His enemies publicly…when He died and rose again…and the same power that raised Jesus from the dead…lives in us!!! Glory to You God!! Amen!!

You know every thought and deed, and ask that all lies be revealed where there is an attempt to hide the truth. Thank you Lord for hearing our cry to You and protecting North Carolina from the fiery darts of the evil one. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Please awaken the people in North Carolina. Speak to them in their dreams and draw the hearts of your people back to you. Give us a fear of the Lord that will carry out through the nation like a wave! May we boldly seek Your face and turn from our wicked ways. Praise You Lord for Your great mercy! We did not earn it and we do not deserve it, but you freely gave Your precious Son Jesus to pay for our sins. Hallelujah All glory and honor and praise belong to you! May we spend our days worshiping you in the way that we live and the words that we say. If we should fall, pick us back up again. Great is Thy Faithfulness, Oh Lord my God. Thank You that I can call on You as my Abba Father. Draw back the prodigals to You my Father, continue to draw people in with Your loving kindness. I love you. I can love because You first loved me.

Lord you said the little children could come to you. Please save our unborn from the tyranny of those fighting for abortion rights in our state. Touch their hearts to realize the unborn have rights in You. Help them to settle their minds regarding any rage against these little ones. Help them to see the unborn as citizens deserving life. Your daughter, Linda
