January 3, 2008 '.....I am asking all of you to go before the Lord with fasting and prayer! Present your requests before the Lord and intercede for this nation and the coming elections!! We are at a very crucial time, saints of God! And I am calling the Christians out! No more are we going to vote for someone because they will put money in our pockets!! No more will we vote for someone because of a political party! No more will we sit on our hands and do NOTHING!! We need to be on our knees in prayer right now for the election of 2008. Don't wait until that day to start shooting prayers to heaven! It is our responsibility! I pray that the Lord would turn His house back into a house of prayer!!
There is a war that goes on in the heavens that does not sleep! The enemy is working hard to put his people at the top. They are the one’s that legalize the shedding of innocent blood! Psalm 94:20-23 “-They band themselves together against the life of the righteous and condemn the innocent to death. But the LORD has been my stronghold, and my God the rock of my refuge. He has brought back their wickedness upon them and will destroy them in their evil; The LORD our God will destroy them.” I have to tell you Beloved, someone must cry out for mercy for this nation! Just as Daniel went before the Lord on behalf of his people, (Dan. 9:3-5) “So I gave my attention to the Lord God to seek Him by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth and ashes. I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed and said, 'Alas, O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and lovingkindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments, we have sinned, committed iniquity, acted wickedly and rebelled, even turning aside from Your commandments and ordinances.”
His prayers shook the heavens. He fasted and prayed for 3 weeks and it stirred the Spiritual world. A battle was going on that Daniel was totally unaware of until Gabriel told him! That story is so encouraging! We must not give up on praying because we do not see immediate results. For who knows what is going on in the spiritual world that we can not see. ( Dan 10 - Then he said to me, 'Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia.)
Saints, now is the time to pray! We can not vote for a man that does not believe in the sanctity of marriage! And we can not vote for a man that legalizes murder! Questions. What about the war? Will this man protect us from terrorist? I tell you now, No president can keep us safe from terrorist with out the blessing of the hand of God! And God will not bless this land and protect us when we are shedding innocent blood, I don’t care who is in office!! But I thank God for the blood that cries louder than the 50 million innocent babies’ blood that cries up from the ground! (Gen. 4:10)
O Lord, our God, have mercy on us. A nation that has turned it’s back on you! And have mercy on your people that do not follow after you!
It’s time to take our ground! It’s time to stand on righteousness and not political correctness! Heavenly Father, awaken your people again, for we have fallen asleep! In Jesus' Name!
