A Clarion Call for the Church to press in with Fasting and prayer! Rasmussen: Mitt 30%, McCain 30%
why, me! | 2/2/08 | Freemike

Posted on 02/02/2008 2:33:35 PM PST by freemike

Just wanted to put out a good thought!!

God cares about this nation and does care about this election! How much do we??? After all the blogging and talking,, will you be willing to press in with prayer and fasting??

Sometimes it seems there is nothing we can do than blog and complain! But,, that is really not true for the Christian! It is a lie from the devil formed in the pit of hell!

Ezekiel 22:30 "I searched for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one."

God can do a great deal with just a little!! He searches for just "a man!" Nobody likes to fast! If it were easy, everybody would do it! Perhaps you can give up just one meal! Do what you can! Pray like you mean it! Spend an hour with God every day. Pray into the night! Stay up all night and pray or just commit to meeting God daily with a broken heart!!

Prayer is simple! Open your mouth and talk to God and then you are praying! Enter His gates with thanksgiving! Thank Him for all the great things He has done! It doesn't matter how you feel,, and you aren't being a hypocrite if you don't feel thankful! You are acting in Faith! Besides,, prayer isn't just about you! It is about Him!!!

2Ch 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."

I added the emphasis.

Talk to God! After you have thanked Him. Give Him some praise! Paul's praise brought down the prison walls! How do I praise Him?? Speak good things about Him! It's easy!! State that His name is above every other name! Tell Him what a good God he is!

Then,, be honest about yourself! Confess your sin! Talk to Him! Ask Him to heal this land! Pray for this election, our courts, our leaders!

Do you want to really be bold??! Want to really step out and say something crazy?? Proclaim things!!

Mark 11:23, "Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him."

Proclaim righteousness returns to our courts! Proclaim the the name of Jesus will be lifted up again in our congress! Speak to our schools that they will return to the foundation on which they were built! And speak to this election! That the more righteous man win!! Get radical in prayer!! Speak that our would so return to the Bible that all the nations of the earth would have to confess "Yes,, they left their God, but look! They have returned!! American is again a Christian nation!"

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."

Pray that liars, thieves and deceivers will be exposed! Pray that the news media will report the truth!

God spoke,, and formed the heavens and earth! The Bible says our words also have the power of life and death!! Speak to the mountain! You say you did and it's still there??? Don't quit! It was years before Joshua and Caleb entered the Promise Land! But,, THEY DID!!!

I do not pretend to understand everything about God! Regardless of the outcome of Super Tuesday, regardless of the outcome of our general election, I do know this,,, God is not a liar and His Word is true!!! Nor do I believe God is finished with this nation! Ultimately, we have arrived here at this place because the church fell asleep! I blame congress for lots of things as well,,, but in all truth,, the blame is on the church doorstep,, and at in own homes. It all begins and it all ends in the prayer closet!

So,, will you join me in prayer and fasting over the next few days!!?? Not just for this election,, but for this nation,, that it may endure!!

I will leave you with these few scriptures,,

"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." James 5:16

"For men are not cast off by the Lord forever. Though He brings grief, He will show compassion, so great is His unfailing love. For He does not willingly bring affliction or grief to the children of men." Lam.3:31-33

"For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil. Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But, even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. 'Do not fear what they fear;do not be frightened." 1 Peter3:12-14

I’ve been praying for my country for months and months, and I’ve also been praying for my countries enemies, that their hearts and minds be changed.

Mitt 30%, McCain 30%

That means 70% of Republicans don’t like Mitt, and 70% of Republicans don’t like McCain. Too bad we don’t have a conservative in this race.

Amen!

Pray, dear saints, PRAY!!!

We all know in our heart of hearts that a McCain presidency has the potential to be worse even than a Hillary or Obama presidency.

At least with a Democrat as POTUS, the conservative base will be mobilized, and attempts to punish conservatives will be mitigated by the Republican contingent in Congress.

Under McCain, the conservative base will be punished, and the Republicans in Congress will be compelled to go along with him, however reluctantly, while the Democrats participate WITH GLEE!

PLEASE PRAY!!

The Nation AND the GOP will be destroyed with certaintly under McCain who has a long and shameful history of collaborating with Democrats AGAINST conservatives!!

I applaud your suggestion for fasting and prayer, but I must say that I hope you’re not suggesting that Mitt Romney is the right guys. If you want the Lord to be part of this, then consider the fact that Romney belongs to a religion that does not respect the Scriptures as they are written. I don’t think we would want a President who isn’t really a member of the Christian faith.

McCain’s victory on Super Tuesday is all but assured. Look to the future. In November our choice will be between John McCain and eight years of President Hillary Rodham Clinton with left-wing justices packing our courts. It’s an easy choice to make for any true conservative.

Make that four years of Hillary. Then we start from scratch.

If we give in, and vote for McCain, we no longer have a party.

Excuse me Mr. President, can I tag along?  Sure John, we need everyone we can get.

Statesman wanna-be John McCain speaks...

When it comes to Reaganism, I was right there leading the way...
...well, I was a foot soldier in that battle.

I don't share John McCain's goals for this nation.  Do you?

We need to make those tax cuts we helped push through permanent!


Yes John, whatever you say, but you fought them in the first place.

It's too bad there isn't a twelve step program for politicians like John McCain

I know one thing to be certain.  The White House is no place for his recovery.

Lord JESUS, have mercy on us!!

Deliver us from the onslaught of our enemies, domestic and foreign, those who endeavor to hurt us in myriad ways.

Please hear our prayer for the prenatal souls being sacrificed on the altars of lucre and "convenience".

May the hearts of our enemies be moved to mercy and grace and recognition of You as The Most High, for Your Glory and Purpose.

Amen

Why?
He would have to win all delegates in every state. Since half are not winner take all, JM will NOT be the winner.

This is going to a floor fight at the convention.

At this point, I will take an atheist as long has he/she is a liberty loving patriot, isn't prone to taking bribes, has virtues and is generally honest and of average intelligence. A liberty loving atheist patriot beats a big government liberal minister any day!

Now,, I did not mean to enter into arguing on this post.

If you read it,, I wrote that we pray that the most righteous man win!

I will be glad to argue on all my other posts!

Other than George W. Bush, name one, JUST ONE, president in the last 100 years who claimed to be a blood-bought, born-again believer in Jesus Christ.

Mitt Romney may not be considered a Christian by those of us who go by The Book and recognize Mormonism as a cult led by a false prophet, but Mitt Romney’s demeanor and comportment in this presidential primary cycle has been above reproach.

Romney is, by my observation, more Godly than those, even some of us on this board, professing to be Christians!

One wife, five children, honest and successful in business, the least arrogant of all those running, less arrogant, I daresay than most of us on this board!

My suggestion is to start a Conservative Party USA. A shocking wake-up to the GOP.
