The Obamacare Prayer Vigil(s)

Have you heard that the White House is planning a “prayer vigil” for Obamacare outside the Supreme Court “right when justices plan to hear arguments for three days beginning March 26″? Isn’t it quite intriguing that an Administration that touts their skewed view of “separation of Church and State” now prepares to call on the Name of God Almighty to push their liberal agenda through.

“When you spread out your hands in prayer,
I hide my eyes from you;
even when you offer many prayers,
I am not listening.

Your hands are full of blood!” ~ GOD (Isaiah 1:15)

The magnitude of this Scripture is astounding! Just at face value alone, the words virtually leap off the screen, a resounding rebuke to an Administration who’s arrogance knows no boundary. When you dig deeper, looking at every facet of this Scripture, it is a true testament that the Word of God is applicable today.

This Administration- this country, in reality, has so much innocent blood on her hands. However, there is also the Scripture regarding God’s wrath on those who go against Him- Romans 1:28 sums it up, but again, the entire chapter of Romans 1 describes current times exactly.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.

In reading the originally article, another passage of Scripture came to mind. You can read the entire passage here in 1 Kings 18. For this article, we will focus on four verses, 1 Kings 18:36-39.

36 At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: “LORD, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. 37 Answer me, LORD, answer me, so these people will know that you, LORD, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.”

38 Then the fire of the LORD fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.

39 When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The LORD—he is God! The LORD—he is God!”

If the God-fearing people of this nation will fall on their faces before God Almighty, there is no doubt we will see miracles happen all over this country! Obama’s Administration is planning a prayer vigil on the steps of the Supreme Court House….. where will the God-fearing people of this nation be? Elijah was a true servant of God, and called on Him to show Himself to the false prophets of the day, letting it be known to all that He alone is God.

It would be quite fitting for the servants of God in this day- God-fearing men and women of America, to have our own prayer vigil in front of the Supreme Court at the exact same time as this Administration is performing a sacrilegious ceremonial display of arrogance they call prayer. There is power in prayer!

Matthew 18:20:

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

Prayer Permeates 9/11 Ground Zero Remembrance, Despite Mayor Bloomberg Ban

WASHINGTON, Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), said today the fact that prayer and Scripture were key ingredients in the 9/11 remembrance at Ground Zero shows how wrong Mayor Michael Bloomberg was in refusing to reverse a ban prohibiting religious leaders and prayer from being part of the official ceremony.

“Despite the Mayor’s ban, prayer permeated the solemn and sacred remembrance at Ground Zero,” saidJay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. “We heard from nearly 40,000 Americans who supported prayer at this event. And, in the end, even with the ban in place, President Obama, former President Bush, and former New York City Mayor Giuliani – understood the importance of including prayer in their remarks – prayer for those who are still suffering from the nation’s worst terrorist attack – prayer for our nation. In spite of the Mayor’s stubborn refusal to acknowledge the importance of including prayer, the fact is that prayer and Scripture played an integral part of this memorial event and for that we are grateful.”

The ACLJ sent Mayor Bloomberg a letter signed by nearly 40,000 Americans declaring their support for prayer at the event and urging him to rescind his ban.

In his remarks at Ground Zero, President Obama read Psalm 46, which begins with, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.”

Former President George W. Bush read from a letter written by Abraham Lincoln in 1864 to a mother who lost five sons during the Civil War. Lincoln ended the letter saying, “I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.”

And former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani read from Ecclesiastes. As Giuliani put it: “The perspective that we need, and have needed, to get through the last 10 years, and the years that remain, are best expressed by the words of God as inscribed in the book of Ecclesiastes.”

Roy Moore: 2012 Presidential Profile

“If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15

Chief Justice Roy Moore made national headlines when he refused to abide by the ruling from a federal judge that he remove the Ten Commandments monument he had specially ordered for the Alabama Supreme Court building. Chief Justice Moore said that his hope was to return “God to our public life and restore the moral foundation of our law.”

While nationally known in the earlier years of this century, his name is not as recognized now. If he does throw his hat into the ring of contenders officially I foresee an uphill battle to get his name out there. However, nothing is impossible!  I will quote Roy Moore- a quote that you will read in context later in this profile of Roy Moore:

“The impossible had happened! God had given me something that I had not been able to obtain through my own efforts.”

While you may disagree with him on his stand, one thing you can say for certain- Roy Moore is without a doubt a man of principles! He will stand on his beliefs no matter what it cost him! His stand has already cost him dearly! There are many reasons I respect Roy Moore, but if for no other reason, I respect him for standing his ground no matter what he loses or gains. We need more great men like this in leadership!

Blessed are they that do his commandments,
that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. Revelation 22:14

His Reputation
During the Vietnam War, as company commander, Roy Moore had the reputation of being very strict. Because of his strict discipline, he was given the derogatory nickname of “Captain America”.

He Stands For Something
Chief Justice Roy Moore is without a man of character. Whether or not you agree with his beliefs you will be hard-pressed to say he does not stand up for his beliefs.

As Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama, he refused to comply with a court order from a federal judge to remove a monument of the  Ten Commandments from the state courthouse. The matter received national attention, and Judge Roy Moore gained many supporters for taking a stand in defense of  judicial rights and the Constitution of Alabama.

While the Ten Commandments monument is what brought him national notoriety, it did not start with the monument. It was around 1986 that Judge Moore changed his political affiliation from Democrat to Republican, and at that time he added a wooden Ten Commandments plaque that he had personally carved in 1980 to his office. This plaque started what would become years of Judge Roy Moore taking a solid stand for Ten Commandments given to us by God Almighty.

Judge Roy Moore recognizes that divine intervention happens in our lives. When the sitting judge died while in office in 1992, Judge Moore was appointed as Etowah County Circuit Judge- the position he ran for and lost ten years before. Of this appointment he later wrote:

“The impossible had happened! God had given me something that I had not been able to obtain through my own efforts.”

When Judge Moore term as circuit judge began he took his wooden Ten Commandments with him and hung it on the wall of his courtroom behind his bench. In an interview with the Montgomery Advertiser Judge Moore said that his intention in hanging the Ten Commandments was to fill up the bare space on the courtroom walls, as well as to indicate the importance of the Ten Commandments. He stated that it was never his intention to cause controversy. He went on to say in another interview with the Atlantic that while he understood the potential for controversy, he “wanted to establish the moral foundation of our law.”

It was not long after Judge Moore’s appointment that the attorney for the defendants in a murder case objected to the display. This garnered a great deal of attention- not only because of the Ten Commandments and the objection of their presence in Judge Moore’s courtroom, but also because the case involved two male strippers who were known professionally as “Silk” and “Satin”.

It was at this time that there was also a major objection to Judge Moore’s practice of opening court sessions with prayer asking for Divine Guidance for jurors in their deliberations. There was at least one occasion where Judge Moore asked a clergyman to lead the court’s jury pool in prayer. Pre-court session prayers were not uncommon in Alabama, and had been common for many years, having begun by George C. Wallace, Jr. when he was circuit judge. However, the local arm of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sent a letter in 1993 threatening a lawsuit if the prayers did not cease.

June 20, 1994– A representative from the ACLU attended Judge Moore’s courtroom to observe and record the pre-session prayer. Though a lawsuit was not filed immediately, Judge Moore went on record stating that it was an “act of intimidation”. This brought him additional attention during his campaign to hold onto his circuit court seat, which he had been appointed to. Judge Moore won the seat in a landslide victory.

March 1995– The ACLU filed a lawsuit against Judge Moore, claiming that the pre-session prayer and the Ten Commandments display were both unconstitutional. The original lawsuit was later dismissed on technicalities, but Governor Fob James instructed the state Attorney General to file suite in Montgomery County in support of Judge Moore.

1996- The case in support of Judge Moore was heard before an Alabama Circuit Judge who declared the prayers unconstitutional. However, he initially allowed the Ten Commandments plaque to remain on Judge Moore’s courtroom wall.
Judge Moore held a press conference immediately after the ruling vowing to defy the ruling against pre-session prayers and re-affirming religious intent in displaying the Ten Commandments plaque.
In response to Judge Moore’s press conference, critics responded by asking the Alabama Circuit Judge to reconsider his previous ruling, and the judge issued a new ruling requiring the Ten Commandments plaque to be removed in ten days. Judge Moore appealed the  decision and kept the plaque up. Ten days later the Alabama Supreme Court issued a temporary stay against the ruling. Once again due to technicalities, the Court never ruled in the case and threw it out in 1998.

A poll released soon after the ruling showed that 88% of Alabamians supported Judge Moore’s solid stand.

Some time later, Judge Moore was investigated by the Alabama Judicial Ethics Committee regarding the use of money raised by Coral Ridge Ministries for his defense, but the investigation ended with no charges being brought against Judge Moore.

The practice of opening court sessions with prayer continues today in Alabama court rooms, however it is not required and not done by all Alabama judges.

Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court
1999- The Christian Family Association began talking with Judge Roy Moore in an effort to convince him to run for the office of Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. This effort to draft Judge Moore was due to the fact that the incumbent Republican judge announced that he would not seek reelection. Judge Moore was hesitant to enter a statewide race, stating that he had “absolutely no funds” while the other candidates were well-financed. Judge Moore finally made the decision to enter the race, and on December 7, 1999 he announced his decision from his Etowah County courtroom. Judge Moore stated that he was entering the race

with hope of returning “God to our public life and restore the moral foundation of our law.”

Judge Moore ran his campaign on the religious issues, arguing that Christianity’s declining influence “corresponded directly with school violence, homosexuality, and crime.”

Judge Moore won the election and was sworn in as Chief Justice on January 15, 2001.

In taking the position, Moore stated that he had

“come to realize the real meaning of the First Amendment and its relationship to the God on whom the oath was based. My mind had been opened to the spiritual war occurring in our state and our nation that was slowly removing the knowledge of that relationship between God and law.

I pledged to support not only the U.S. Constitution, but the Alabama Constitution as well, which provided in its preamble that the state ‘established justice’ by ‘invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God.’ The connection between God and our law could not be more clear …”

Ten Commandments Monument
Just one month after the election as Chief Justice, Judge Moore began planning for a larger monument to display the Ten Commandments. His reason for the larger monument was that the Alabama Supreme Court  building required something larger than just his homemade wooden plaque. The final design was a 5,280 pound high-grade granite block which would come from Vermont that measured 3 feet wide, 3 feet deep and 4 feet tall. It would be covered with quotes from the Declaration of Independence, the National Anthem, and various founding fathers. Sitting atop the granite monument would sit two large carved tablets inscribed with the Ten Commandments. The granite was ordered ans shipped and Judge Moore found supporters and a sculptor to bring his vision to fruition.
The final creation was put in place on July 31, 2001. There were some initial installation difficulties involving the structural support for the monument’s weight, but these difficulties were overcome and it was placed in the central rotunda of the Alabama judicial building. The process of installing the monument was filmed, and the videotapes of the event were sold by an evangelical media outlet in Florida owned by a staunch supporter of Judge Moore’s, the late Reverend D. James Kennedy. The proceeds made from the video were eventually used to pay for Judge Moore’s ensuing legal expenses.

The next morning Judge Moore held a press conference in the central rotunda for the official unveiling of the sacred monument. In a speech following the unveiling, Moore declared,

“Today a cry has gone out across our land for the acknowledgment of that God upon whom this nation and our laws were founded….May this day mark the restoration of the moral foundation of law to our people and the return to the knowledge of God in our land.”

It did not take long for the controversy over the monument to heat up.  Just three months after the monument was unveiled- on October 30, 2001, the ACLU of Alabama, along with the Americans United for Separation of Church and State and the Southern Poverty Law Center to file a lawsuit asking that the monument to be removed, because, in their words:

“[it] sends a message to all who enter the State Judicial Building that the government encourages and endorses the practice of religion in general and Judeo-Christianity in particular.”

Almost a year later, on October 15, 2002, the trial, titled Glassroth v. Moore, began. Presented as evidence for the plaintiffs included testimony that lawyers of different religious beliefs had changed their work practices, including frequently avoiding the court house to avoid passing by the monument. The testimony was that the monument created a religious atmosphere, with many people using the area for prayer.

Moore argued that he would not remove the monument, as doing so would violate his oath of office. His statement:

[The monument] serves to remind the Appellate Courts and judges of the Circuit and District Court of this State and members of the bar who appear before them, as well as the people of Alabama who visit the Alabama Judicial Building, of the truth stated in the Preamble to the Alabama Constitution that in order to establish justice we must invoke ‘the favor and guidance of almighty God.’

Judge Moore stated that the Ten Commandments are the “moral foundation” of U.S. law, saying that in order to restore this foundation,

“we must first recognize the source from which all morality springs…[by] recogniz[ing] the sovereignty of God.”

He added that by adding the monument to the state judiciary building marked “the beginning of the restoration of the moral foundation of law to our people” and “a return to the knowledge of God in our land.”

Judge Moore acknowledged a distinct religious intent in placing the monument, agreeing that the monument “reflects the sovereignty of God over the affairs of men” and “acknowledge[s] God’s overruling power over the affairs of men.”

Judge Moore’s belief was that this did not violate the doctrine of separation of church and state. The  judge presiding over the case later summarized it, saying that Judge Moore’s argument was that

“the Judeo-Christian God reigned over both the church and the state in this country, and that both owed allegiance to that God”, although they must keep their affairs separate.

November 18, 2002, brought the ruling of a federal U.S. District Judge declaring that the monument violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, thereby making the monument unconstitutional. In his ruling the U.S. District Judge judge stated:

“If all Chief Justice Moore had done were to emphasize the Ten Commandments’ historical and educational importance… or their importance as a model code for good citizenship… this court would have a much different case before it. But the Chief Justice did not limit himself to this; he went far, far beyond. He installed a two-and-a-half ton monument in the most prominent place in a government building, managed with dollars from all state taxpayers, with the specific purpose and effect of establishing a permanent recognition of the ‘sovereignty of God,’ the Judeo-Christian God, over all citizens in this country, regardless of each taxpaying citizen’s individual personal beliefs or lack thereof. To this, the Establishment Clause says no.

The ruling mandated that Judge Moore remove the monument from the state judicial building by January 3, 2003. However, the order was stayed on December 23, 2002 when Judge Moore appealed the decision to the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. The ruling was upheld in the Court of Appeals on July 1, 2003. The earlier stay was lifted, and Judge Moore was now given the date of August 20, 2003 as the deadline to have the monument removed from public areas of the state judicial building.
Judge Moore announced on August 14 that he intended to ignore the order to have the monument removed. Judge Moore’s supporters responded in kind and rallied behind me. Two days later large crowds rallied together in support of Judge Moore and the Ten Commandments monument. As the crowds began to form in front of the of the judicial building it became a forefront in the national media. Among the crowd of supporters were featured speakers such as Alan Keyes, the Reverend Jerry Falwell, and Judge Moore himself. It is estimated that the crowd grew to 4,000 strong more on the day of August 16, and in the remaining days of August the crowd ranged from several hundred to over a thousand each day.

When August 20 came- the deadline for the removal of the Ten Commandments monument, nothing had changed. Judge Moore stood by his statement that he would not remove them from the court house rotunda.
August 22, 2003- Just two days after the deadline had passed, forcing the removal of the Ten Commandments monument, the Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission filed a complaint with the Alabama Court of the Judiciary (COJ), which effectively suspended Judge  Moore from the Chief Justice position pending a hearing by the COJ.

In the judgement from the U.S. District Judge, the state of Alabama faced fines of $5,000 a day until the monument was removed. To prevent this from happening, the other eight other members of the Alabama Supreme Court intervened on August 21, unanimously overruled Judge Moore, and ordered the monument removed.
In regards to this, Judge more said that the U.S. District Judge

“fearing that I would not obey his order, decided to threaten other state officials and force them to remove the monument if I did not do so. A threat of heavy fines was his way of coercing obedience to that order,” an action that Moore sees as a violation of the Eleventh Amendment to the United States Constitution.

The fateful day came when the monument that had become such a national controversy was moved from the rotunda of the court house building. On August 27, the monument was moved to a non-public side room in the court house. It was not immediately removed from the building. Pending legal hearings, the monument’s weight, worries that the monument could break through the floor if it was taken outside intact, and a desire to avoid confrontation with protesters massed outside the structure were among the many reasons that it was not removed immediately.

November 12, 2003- The COJ ethics hearing was held  and Judge Moore repeated his earlier stance that

“to acknowledge God cannot be a violation of the Canon of Ethics. Without God there can be no ethics.”

He made it clear that he would continue to stand on his principles, in defiance of the court order , and said that if he returned to office

“I certainly wouldn’t leave [the monument] in a closet, shrouded from the public.”

Judge Moore said that it is his belief that the court order was unlawful, and that complying with the order was not an enforceable mandate.

The Assistant Attorney General said Judge Moore’s defiance of the court order

“undercuts the entire workings of the judicial system…. What message does that send to the public, to other litigants? The message it sends is: If you don’t like a court order, you don’t have to follow it.”

The COJ gave their unanimous opinion the next day, ruling that “Chief Justice Moore has violated the Alabama Canons of Judicial Ethics as alleged by the JIC in its complaint.” Though the COJ had several disciplinary options available to address the matter, because of the fact that Judge Moore made it very clear he would defy any similar court orders in the future, they concluded that “under these circumstances, there is no penalty short of removal from office that would resolve this issue.”  Judge Moore was immediately removed from his position.

The monument was physically removed from the court house on July 19, 2004.

No Regrets
2005- In his 2005 autobiography So Help Me God, Judge Moore said he has

“…absolutely no regrets. I have done what I was sworn to do. It’s about whether or not you can acknowledge God as a source of our law and our liberty. That’s all I’ve done…I had threatened the philosophy of judicial supremacy. Those who sat behind benches wearing black robes and wielding gavels did not want to be reminded that there is a God, or for that matter, a Constitution that they were sworn to uphold. Judicial restraint gave way to judicial tyranny, and a new law reigned—the rule of man.”

Other Political Activities
2004
– Joined with Herb Titus to draft the Constitution Restoration Action which sought to remove federal courts’ jurisdiction over a government official or entity’s “acknowledgment of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty or government”. It also gave a provision to impeach any judge who failed to do so. The bill was introduced in both houses of Congressed the year it was written, and reintroduced in 2005, but failed in both committees.

This same year he was an outspoken opponent of a proposed amendment to the Alabama constitution. The proposed legislation, known as Amendment 2, would have removed wording from the state constitution that referred to poll taxes and required separate schools for “white and colored children”. During the civil rights- era, this legislation outlawed this practice. Judge Moore’s argument, along with other opponents of the bill argued that the wording of the amendment would have allowed federal judges to force the state to fund public school improvements by increasing taxes. Alabama voters defeated the proposed amendment with a margin of 1,850 votes out for 1.38 million votes.

Endorsements
In the 2010 election for Governor of Alabama, Judge Moore was endorsed by NASCAR driver Bobby Allison

On The Issues
Has spoken out for the repeal of the federal income tax at rallies sponsored by We The People Foundation

2006- Wrote a column for WND stating that Keith Ellison, the first Muslim to be elected to the United States House of Representatives, should not be allowed to serve due to his religious views. He stated that Mr. Ellison could not “honestly take the oath of office” since the Koran does not allow for religions other than Islam to exist. Here is a quote from that article:

“common sense alone dictates that in the midst of a war with Islamic terrorists we should not place someone in a position of great power who shares their doctrine”.

The Play
A 2004 play written by Tom Wofford, entitled, “Judge Roy Moore is Coming to Dinner” is based on Judge Roy Moores opinion in the D.H. vs. H.H. child custody dispute in which a lesbian petitioned the court for custody of her children, alleging her ex-husband was abusive. He play has man quotes from the opinion issued by Judge Roy Moore.  The play portrays two gay men who marry in California and return home to Alabama to tell their families. The play was condemned by Judge Moore, though he had not seen the play, saying it was the “result of federal activism in our court system”. He also added that same-sex marriage has corrupted American society.

The actual case of D.H. vs. H.H. ruled in favor of the father, but the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals overturned the verdict 4-1, stating that substantial evidence existed proving that there was abusive behavior by the father. The Alabama Supreme Court overruled the appeals court on technicalities. In response, Chief Justice Roy Moore issued a coinciding opinion in February of 2002 stating that a parent’s sexuality should be a deciding factor in determining custody. His statement is as follows:

To disfavor practicing homosexuals in custody matters is not invidious discrimination, nor is it legislating personal morality. On the contrary, disfavoring practicing homosexuals in custody matters promotes the general welfare of the people of our State in accordance with our law, which is the duty of its public servants… The State carries the power of the sword, that is, the power to prohibit conduct with physical penalties, such as confinement and even execution. It must use that power to prevent the subversion of children toward this lifestyle, to not encourage a criminal lifestyle… Homosexual behavior is a ground for divorce, an act of sexual misconduct punishable as a crime in Alabama, a crime against nature, an inherent evil, and an act so heinous that it defies one’s ability to describe it. That is enough under the law to allow a court to consider such activity harmful to a child. To declare that homosexuality is harmful is not to make new law but to reaffirm the old; to say that it is not harmful is to experiment with people’s lives, particularly the lives of children.

Judge Moore’s comments led to protests in front of the state court house and attracted national criticism from civil rights groups such as  GLAAD, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, and the Human Rights Campaign. Lambda Legal Defense & Education Fund filed an official complaint with the Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission.

Governor Perry asks Texans to Pray for Rain

This past Thursday, April 21, 2011, the Governor of Texas, Rick Perry issued an Official Proclamation for Days of Prayer for Rain in Texas.

As a citizen of Texas, it is with great humbleness that I submit myself to pray for rain for our drought-ridden state. What saddens me is that as a woman who prays about everything, I have not prayed for rain up until our Governor put out an official proclamation to pray for rain.

I wonder why this is. I guess it’s just one of those simple things that should come naturally but you just don’t stop to think about it.

On a daily and sometimes hourly basis, I pray for this nation, that she will turn back to God;  I pray for our President, that he will humble himself before God and seek God’s will rather than his own selfish ways for this nation he was called to lead; I pray consistently for the complete healing and restoration of body, mind and soul for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords who was gunned down in January of this year. In fact, this one event affected me so deeply that the day after the shooting I started a personal prayer blog to specifically pray for her continued progress and healing.

Over the months, this site has grown into praying for a great deal of things that has happened throughout our nation.

Looking back, on the blog site, as well as in my personal, private prayer time, I have no problem praying for the big things as well as the small things. I’m a firm believer that nothing is too big or too small for God Almighty! And yet…. I still had not thought to pray for rain!

I appreciate the fact that Governor Perry, as the elected official of this great State, has made an official proclamation to pray for rain. He has reminded us that we should seek God Almighty with all of our needs, including the weather. While I do not agree with everything that Governor Perry does, and in many ways I see him as just another “typical politician”,  I do see that he is leading in a way that allows God to guide him and direct him in his decisions. Whether or not he personally truly seeks God’s will in his governing I cannot say.  But I would venture to say that he has a fairly strong and faithful prayer life. Whatever the case may be, as far as his personal relationship with God, he has reminded me to pray for rain!

Here in San Antonio it is still dry as a bone. This morning, when I heard the rumblings of thunder, I was prayerful and hopeful that God was going to open up the floodgates of heaven with His soaking rain. However, we have only received a few drops here and there.

Does this mean I believe God has turned His back on believers who are earnestly praying for rain? No, not at all! In fact, in my mind I see it as a searching call from God. It’s almost as if He is saying, “Yes, my children, I hear your prayers. I want to bless you. Can you hear that I am preparing to pour out my blessings of rain for you?” Is it wishful thinking? No, it is hope, faith and trust in God Almighty.

For now, His answer is “no” in response to opening the floodgates of heaven to let it rain abundantly on our state. So I will continue to call upon the Name of the Lord God Almighty to send us the much needed rain in abundance! And if He still continues to say “no” to my prayers? Blessed be the Name of The Lord! He gives and takes away, my heart will choose to say- Blessed be the Name of The Lord!

This song is my prayer, Lord God:

As Dark Forces Influence Our Leadership, Perhaps Light is the Answer

A praying soldierWe find ourselves in the greatest battle of our lifetime. The Battle for the preservation of our nation and her liberties.

In an American Thinker article, Ed Lasky points out how George Soros advises Obama to use forceful measures to override the will of the people.

The Center now is providing a blueprint of ways Barack Obama can do an end run around the people’s will by resorting to methods that will strike many of us as being improper-to say the least. Relying on executive orders, interpretation of regulations, rule -making and the like they are collectively a recipe for even more power being assumed by President Obama..

If you read this article posted above, you will understand why I will forever say, that the fight for the preservation of the integrity and freedoms of this nation must be waged on our knees.

Were you aware that there are systems set in place that the President can abuse to force his “Vision for America” to come into being? He doesn’t need Congress.

“The Center for American Progress today is releasing a report, “Power of the President,” proposing thirty executive actions that the President can take to advance progressive change in the areas of energy, the economy, health care, education, foreign policy, and national security.

“The following authorities can be used to ensure progress on key issues facing the country today: Executive orders, Rulemaking, Agency management, Convening and creating public-private partnerships , Commanding the armed forces, Diplomacy…”

Thirty?!?

It seems that the President has plenty of people to help him remember each and every one of them, lest he forget and miss an opportunity to force his will into becoming reality.

There are two years ahead of us.

Two Years.

At the risk of sounding a bit doom and gloom, I have to say that there is a lot of damage that can be done in that time. We have no idea what plans the leader of our nation and his advisors may have.

Something that alarmed me greatly was said by President Obama on the The Daily Show on October 27th, 2010. Do you remember when he was called “Dude” by John Stewart? That hit the media like lightning, and it should have.  It also destracted from this statement that the President made:

“We have done things that some folks don’t even know about.”

There you have it friends and lovers of liberty.

Our President has made it publicly known that there are things they have done that we don’t even know about.  Um, Who are “They”? If this doesn’t send a chill down your spine……

{On a side note, I also found it ‘refreshing’ that the second thing the President said happened to be a slam against the Republican Caucus. Cheap shot, sir, On a show known for having a liberal audience…Way to go for the easy laugh.  Curiously, you didn’t mind smearing the men and women that represent more than half of your citizens on national television. Sadly, instead of making the Republicans look bad for not giving you a standing ovation every time you walk into a room, you made yourself look bad for wanting one.}

Without sounding ominous, I must stress that if we aren’t on our knees, sending our heart’s cry to the Lord of Heaven, there will be no victory even while our representatives do their best to make decisions that will reinforce the framework of this nation.

They have their own battle to wage and we must support them.
While our representatives are busy trying stop a runaway train, they are – no doubt – going to be approached by special interest groups.  There will be attempts to bribe them – yes – bribe them.  Not only that, but there will be political peer pressure applied to them.  Seasoned Congressmen will attempt to talk them into giving up a tiny battle to win the war. This is seductive reasoning that many have fallen prey to in the past.

We need to be in prayer that these freshmen in Washington will be able to stand in integrity and resist the voice of temptation.

Our Heavenly Father – He sees what we cannot.

We must rely on the One who does not slumber or sleep.

The God of Heaven and Earth.
The One who gives and takes away as He sees fit.

That includes the power to rule a nation.

Yes, we have power as Americans.
Yes, we can vote.
Yes, we can read and monitor the bills that are being written.

We can be a voice on the phone and a signature at the bottom of a letter or petition, but that is where it ends.

I stated above that we must wage battle on our knees.

There is no victory without spiritual victory.

There is no spiritual victory without a heart of repentance and supplication.

If you are having a hard time thinking of what to ask forgiveness for while praying for your nation, start with abortion, then move to child pornography, sexual abuse and abduction, then you can move on to the physical abuse of children and spouses, I am sure that the sins of our nation will begin to come to the forefront of your mind the more you pray, and as your heart breaks for your country, you will love her more and more.

We are waging a battle to preserve the best freedom the world has never known.

We are waging a battle for the future of our children.

We are waging a battle against Socialism, Communisim and Terrorism.

We are trying to get our government under control – one that thinks it knows what is best for us, and that makes decisions forus instead of listening to us.

May God in Heaven grant us grace, mercy, and strength to fight a good fight.

May His will be done on earth exactly as it is in Heaven. No one says no to righteousness in Heaven.  There are no abortions there, no crime, no lies, no manipulative forces at play.

I also pray that He would benevolently grant us the victory only He can give, for we find ourselves in the greatest battle of our lifetime.
The Battle to Preserve True Liberty.

The Battle to Save America.
