Prayer for Upcoming Election

ONE MINUTE EACH NIGHT

This is the scariest election we as Christians have ever faced, and
from the looks of the polls, the Christians aren’t voting Christian
values. We all need to be on our knees.

Do you believe we can take God at His word? Call upon His name, then
stand back and watch His wonders unfold. This scripture gives us, as
Christians, ownership of this land and the ability to call upon God to
heal it. I challenge you to do that. We have never been more desperate
than now for God to heal our land.

This election is the scariest I remember in my lifetime. 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.’

During WWII, there was an advisor to Churchill, who organized a group
of people who dropped what they were doing every night at a prescribed
hour for one minute, to collectively pray for the safety of England,
its people and peace. This had an amazing effect, as bombing stopped.

There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America .

The United States of America , and our citizens, need prayer more than
ever!!! If you would like to participate, each evening at 9:00 P.M. Eastern Time (8 PM – Central, 7 PM – Mountain, 6 PM Pacific),stop whatever you’re doing, and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our troops, our citizens, for peace in the world, the upcoming election, that the Bible will remain the basis for the laws governing
our land, and that Christianity will grow in the U.S.

If you know anyone who would like to participate, please pass this
along. Someone said if people really understood the full extent of the
power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless. Our
prayers are the most powerful asset we have. Thank you.

Please pass this on to anyone who you think will want to join us.

God Bless You!!!

If This Is Your Last Day On Earth

“Death Comes As The End” is the title of one of Agatha Christie’s novels. It’s a catchy title but it isn’t true. I know: there are many different beliefs around the world about death. Most of them are comforting and untrue. Some people believe we just keep coming back to life in another form or as another person, until we finally get it right, and earn our way to the blissful, peaceful wherever.

Others believe that everyone goes to heaven when they die. They reason that a good God would never really send anyone to hell. Since these folks believe in a celestial grandfather who never does anything about bad attitudes, bad behavior or sin, we will all magically be perfect and be allowed entrance into heaven.

Many people believe that when we die, that’s it. It’s over. You lived your life and there are no consequences good or bad. It’s just over.

I’m not even going to get into all of the cults (false religions) that are out there, pretending to believe in the One True God, but denying the deity of God’s Son–the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for those of us who have put our faith and trust in Him. If you want information on those religions you can read Walter Martin’s book “The Kingdom of the Cults.”

The truth, as uncomfortable as it seems to be for the majority of people, is that we were all created by a loving, benevolent God, who created us for His fellowship.

The truth is, we are not a cosmic accident of science or evolution (another religion that does not want to have any accountability in this life). We were deliberately, wonderfully created (see Psalm 139). God chose to create us. Therefore we have value. He already loved us. He planned from day one of creation and before then, to one day send His only begotten Son to die on a cruel cross for OUR sins, in order to offer us eternal life with Him. He gave us a purpose. He placed His value on us. When we ask His forgiveness with a genuine desire to change, to become a better person, He forgives us; He clothes us with His righteousness (since we have none of our own); He justifies us (sees us as if we had never sinned); He never brings up our past because He chooses to forget it; and He places His Holy Spirit (or Holy Ghost) in our hearts that we may learn more about God. He prepares for us a place in His celestial palace where we may live with Him eternally. He calls us sons and daughters. He adopts us into His family. We can’t earn it, can’t be good enough. If we could we’d have something to brag about; we’d be constantly engaging in one-upmanship with other believers, trying to see who was the best servant, the best Christian, the most dedicated, the most deserving, etc.

For those of you who choose not to believe in a loving God, consider this: if this was your last day on earth, what would you do? Go out with the biggest, baddest party ever? Shoot yourself? Go out with a last Hurrah? Would you crawl into a hole and hide? Would you spend it with family? Would you go around trying to make amends to all the people you have hurt, cheated, lied to or about? What would you do? Would you weep? Would you be frightened?

Did you know: You can’t threaten a true believer with death. We are not afraid to die for our faith. After all, if you kill us we’ll just got straight to God–one way ticket: do not pass go, do not collect $200. We’re there. Scripture says to absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I’m not afraid of dying; I’m afraid of suffering. However, if it is God’s will for me to suffer for Him, I pray He’ll give me the strenght to endure to the end, because I’ll never suffer anywhere near as much as He did for me.

So, if this is my last day on earth, my prayer is that God will put a fire in my bones like He did with the prophet Jeremiah, that I may spread His word throughout the world. If just one person turns his/her life over to Christ because of something I post, or say, or sing, then I have done something for my Lord. He deserves all of my time, all of my attention, all of my love. All of my efforts are so inadequate, but He is able to make something beautiful out of all of my meager efforts. I want to spend whatever time I have left on earth praising His name, thanking Him for all of His mercy and grace poured out on me. I want to hear Him say, “Well  done, thou good and faithful servant” when I meet Him face to face one day.

Rom_13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

No Expiration Date on Prayer

No Expiration Date on Prayer.

Pressed from “Let’s Talk” on StumbleUpon. Very good devotion on Zechariah’s seeming lack of fatih when the angel Gabriel announced that Zechariah and his wife would have a child (in their old age). This is encouragement for all of us who begin to think, after praying for weeks, months or years for something with no results, to keep trusting and believing God. It reminds us that God is not bound by time as we are, and though the waiting can be arduous, His timing is always perfect.

 

Drowning: A Poem

My house, my life are a mess,

And so to my old self I regress,

Back to reading and playing,

And TV watching, I’m just saying

I’m overwhelmed, I must sit down,

So much to do, I fear I’ll drown

With e-mail, Facebook and blog,

Aimlessly wandering through the fog,

My writing, Tumblr, and Twitter,

Promote my work, I’m all in a flitter,

Somehow I suppose I’ll muddle through,

But Lord, where in all this, do I fit You?
