Prayer Request

Prayer Request

I have a prayer request. There's a lady I've known forever. She's very sick. On top of that, she's being abused by those to whom she has given everything.

Lies about her abound, and seem to come from all sides. Just breaks my heart. Seems there's nothing I can do alone but maybe, if we join in and lift her up together, we can heal her.

She's well over 230 years old, but way too young to die. Her name is 'America'. I love her and have always been proud of her. Take time to say a prayer for her - even if it is a short, simple prayer like,

Lord, please heal our land.

Amen.

America is fallen

The great wickedness of our nation,
Is in every way, abomination,

Because we've pushed the Lord aside,
Our nation continues it's death slide,

The Bible tells us all too well,
The nation forgetting God, shall be turned to hell,

And so it is coming to pass,
His Word will ever last,

America, America,
God has removed his grace from thee,

Remove His grace, His precious grace,
From sea, to shining sea

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Thanks, emalvini

Great post!

I often pray for our country

because I fully understand now that our country will only be healed by God alone. Our political problems and issues are merely the symptom of a much greater issue. We, as a whole have turned our backs on Almighty God and the result is a nation completely overcome by a spiritual sickness. Corruption, greed, cruelty, unkindness and selfishness rule the day and the only one who can heal our land is God himself. This is happening to our nation because God is allowing it to happen. We as a nation have turned our back on Him and decided we could do better without Him. How foolish! If our nation is to be healed it will only come when we are willing as a people to fall on our knees and cry out to God to forgive us for falling away and allowing him and his rule to be stripped from His rightful place on the throne of our lives and our country. So yes, I have prayed and will continue to pray for this nation; I pray that God will send a great revival because only then can we healed..

Couldn't have said it better

We pray for our country and for a genuine, biblical revival like no other to sweep the land. Our whole church prays for this every Wednesday night. Yes, we still have Wednesday night prayer meetings like churches used to do.

Two most important words of II Chronicles 7:14 are "my people".
It is not the fault of the atheists and agnostics, or the evolutionists and the low-lifes, it is the fault of God's people who have allowed themselves to be wooed by the things of this world and become materialistic, convenience oriented, and who have fallen for any and everything that uses the name of God. We have not stuck to God's Word. We have allowed publishers to change His Word so many times people do not think there is a perfect Word of God anymore, so they don't read it. We wouldn't put up with such changes to our Constitution, yet the Word of God means less to most who call themselves "Christians".

The next most important words are "If" and "then".
IF my people shall:
1) humble themselves, and
2) pray, and
3) seek my face, and
4) turn from their wicked ways,
THEN will I:
1) hear from heaven, and
2) will forgive their sin, and
3) will heal their land.

We have become too proud, and have forgotten that "God resisteth the proud". The Bible says so, word for word, in two places: James 4:6 and I Peter 5:5

Thanks Denise B for your input!

Thank you 2ndamenduser :)

It's wonderful to hear about an entire church praying together for revival. That is a beautiful thing and my prayer is that more and more churches across the land will begin to do the same. I couldn't agree more with everything you stated. Thanks for your comments and God Bless. :)

May God Bless America, a prayer.

Joining in prayer

Not for loyalty for a Nation, but in concern for it's people and their Great Grand Children.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Healing starts with me! (and by extension, you)...

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall 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.

Psalm 51: 2,3, 9-12 (For full impact, read the whole chapter)

Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity
And cleanse me from my sin.

Psa 51:3

For I know my transgressions,
And my sin is ever before me.

Psa 51:9

Hide Your face from my sins
And blot out all my iniquities.

Psa 51:10

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Psa 51:11

Do not cast me away from Your presence
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.

Psa 51:12

Restore to me the joy of Your salvation
And sustain me with a willing spirit.

America Is Sick - She Needs A Doctor - A Doctor Of Love

A Doctor of Peace, Love, Prosperity and Liberty

Well said

Love is the answer.

It always has been, and it is right under our noses.

I'll say a prayer for her, emalvini, and declare my love as well

I love you, America. Home, sweet home. Land that I love.

There is a difference between the country and the government.

The America I know - she's a great gal. She's in my prayers every night.

Thank you.

"Remember, democracy never

"Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself."
John Adams

"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect" - Mark Twain

If a person didn't believe in God

before the unraveling of America, they can at least start with a belief in Satan.

Satan is a liar, a thief and a murderer.
He comes to lie, steal and kill.

As a liar he employs hefty amounts of deception.
Americans are deceived into believing they are free.
They are not.

Americans have been robbed of more money and wealth than any other people in history. And most don't even suspect it.

Americans are killed in a variety of ways. #1 is the massive genocide that has taken place through a single Supreme Court decision to legalize the extermination of millions of unborn babies.

So, Satan is alive and well in America.
He almost goes unchallenged and in many respects aided and abetted by the United States Government.

God predicted this global reign of lies, theft and killing. He sent the world a life line. Many have availed themselves. Most will not.

Everybody wants to live in Heaven.
But nobody wants to die.

"Everybody Wants to Live in Heaven...

..But Nobody Wants to Die".

WOW!..I like that...I REALLLYYY Like that!
Thanks for the (as usual) no BS assessment.
It rings with the truth.

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

Albert King Quote

Albert King -- Everybody Wants to go to Heaven, But Nobody Wants to Die

Albert King (April 25, 1923 – December 21, 1992) was an American blues guitarist and singer. One of the "Three Kings of the Blues Guitar" (along with B. B. King and Freddie King), Albert King stood 6' 4" (192 cm) and weighed 250 lbs (118 kg) and was known as "The Velvet Bulldozer" King was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in May 2013.

Liberty is a private pleasure until one cares enough to share it

To call someone friend, to leave them free, costs nothing.

It's a favor known to produce wondrous dividends.

Who is brave enough to take the risk to make a land of the free. It's a challenge not a birthright.

Free includes debt-free!

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

Oh baby - yeah!

Thank You

and forgive my insolence at times
Tis a hard thing we all are witness to
this unraveling before our very eyes
Thank God we have ears to hear and eyes to see
hard as it may be, let us bend the knee
that we may know in our heart of hearts
as we anguish in our souls- that freedoms bell
will again resound as we lift our cries to Thee

Oh. sweet land of Liberty, our heart cries out
may these storms be quieted and love restored
as we seek to impeach the mullatto
and his Move On fancy whore
