I find myself repeating this passage:
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
I am seeking strength and courage.
From ypur mouth to GOD’s ears.
Amen, Jim. Amen.
You done just fine.
God can do extraordinary works with ordinary folks.
If you start a Pray for America thread, please add me to the ping.
“But I do greatly fear for our nation and our freedom and I sincerely pray that what we do is in accordance to God’s will. The fear has overwhelmed me.”
I empathize. For me, I had to come to grips with definitions. America, the nation, the United States, the United States government are each different things; although there is overlap, there is not a perfect congruence. I pray for America, and for Americans. I pray for my culture, which does NOT flow through New England, the tail which has wagged the American dog for far too many generations.
As for the government in Washington, the leading political parties and their leaders, may God grant them all that they have earned. To the last measure.
Fear for the future is not of God. You are under attack, and you are under attack because you are still holding out. Check out Psalm 2 to see how the story ends. There is no need to fear for the future, however dire it appears at close hand.
Remember this too. Each soul is immortal. All nations are fleeting. Christ came to redeem souls. He did not deal in trifles like the Roman empire, or any of its successors. He came to redeem what truly mattered. People. Limited, fallen, contrite people who believe in Him.
Amen, and I agree with you in prayer, Dear Patriot!!
“I’m not a preacher and not a biblical scholar.”
The Apostles weren’t *scholars* either.
You did fine. I pray the Good Lord hears and answers.
But, our God is a merciful God. He hears our humble prayers and with Him all things are possible. He may still turn from His wrath, forgive our sin and heal our land.
Regardless, although He may punish a nation, he still loves us and blesses those who truly love Him and desire righteousness. We do our best fighting on our knees.
"I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread." - Psalm 37:25
Thank you very much. I’m sure you are right.
I probably should add that my overwhelming fear is not for myself. My days are already numbered. I, too, fear for the survival of our nation. And for the survival of liberty for our children and grandchildren.
I pray for strength and courage for all of us to continue the resistance. It would be so easy to roll over and take the easy way out. To let them have their big tent and their homosexualist, abortionist and statist ways. But then we would no longer be one nation under God. Give them this and they will take all of our freedoms, all of our sovereignty and eventually give up America to United Nations control. The socialists, statists, sodomites, abortionists, “international law” types, are already installed in the congress and the judiciary. It won’t take much more backsliding to get ‘er done. If we lose the GOP as an opposition party, it’ll be a long time before we can build a new one.
Pray for a miracle at Tampa!!
Pray for the strength to resist tyranny!!
The enemy within: There is no greater threat.
Our Western culture is rotting from within but Christian missionaries are making amazing progress in Asia and Africa, long dominated by tyrants and communists.
Either someday the Americas and Europe will be seen as the backward lands of heathens and the forsaken continents will replace them in God’s sight or God is preparing us for the Great Rapture and He wants to make sure all nations have heard of Christ so no one living has the excuse that they weren’t told before they were judged.
Either way, God’s plan is just and righteous. He will not be mocked and He will not be defeated.
Amen, and God bless you, Jim.
May God bless you sir for you have echoed my thoughts.
This country, based on God-given rights and not rights bestowed by any government, was going along just fine until us good folks stood back and let the idiots kick God out of the public domain. We didn’t do much when school prayers were banned, nor did we riot at Christmas display bans, removal of the Ten Commandments from any public building (Aren’t We the People, the ‘public’?(, and so on and so on and so on. If ‘they’ can banish God, then there are no RIGHTS derived from that God that they have decreed to not exist.
We’ve lost our way and we’ve allowed the government to decide for us that the path never was defined by any God. The Founding Fathers understood that our republic was meant for those of good faith and morals, yet we elect people lacking those qualities time after time. I pray for my country, but, sadly, when I look around anymore I don’t see the country I knew. I pray my country will return in all it’s Glory - one nation, UNDER GOD - like we were meant to be.
Please Pray for our Republic.
Address all prayers to Jim Robinson.
Thanks and God Bless
I stand in agreement.
God knew exactly what you were going to write and exactly what you meant well before you woke up this morning. In my experience He is far more impressed with sincerity and right intentions than elegance and punctuation. I think he is well pleased with it. God Bless.
I am not American, for if I will say I was it will be lie!!
But, I love America of United States, and either I am wrong or right, I stand by one thing: TRUTH!!
Liberty is not a gift nor is trust, it is earned in heart of a person as its faith from grace from God himself.
There is battle going on, and hell of a battle we are facing, does it mean to be weak I say, let them try, question is — will we as humans of different countries give up? God himself decides not us, but I will say here WHO IS LIKE GOD!!!!!!!!!!

Jim, you’ve always shown strength and courage... it shows how dangerous you feel the threat to our nation truly is... Prayers for our nation ..
Amen. These are scary times. Both presidential candidates embrace sins God says are abominable to Him. It’s hard to see where the country goes from here. But we just have to trust...He always takes care of His children.
I liked your prayer. I don’t care much for flowery language meant to impress. I believe in just speaking to God from the heart.
... and all the people said, AMEN!!
Standing with you in prayer for our nation.
“If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” — 2Chronicles 7:14
Thank you for praying for us, Jim. We are left praying for a miracle, a miracle of mercy, and if God has truly lifted His right arm of blessing from our nation, and now readies to wield His left arm of due justice, then I pray daily for my own salvation, that of my family and my beloved friends, that we are able to stand in His Mercy alone for we are not worthy, but for Christ paying our sin debt.
May our lamps be found full of oil. God bless your lips in prayers for us.
Thanks. And, Amen.
I join in your prayer, dear Jim Robinson!
Yes!! Lord Hear Us!!
It is by this faith, and only this faith, that will see us to victory over this evil. The armor of Christ is our most potent weapon...
Also, thanks to Wagglebee for pinging this.
Jim, don't worry about not being a trained theologian. God's power is made perfect in weakness (II Corinthians 12:9).
From the confessions of my own theological tradition:
Q1. What is your only comfort in life and death?
A1. That I am not my own,(1), but belong with body and soul, both in life and in death,(2) to my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ.(3) He has fully paid for all my sins with His precious blood,(4) and has set me free from all the power of the devil.(5) He also preserves me in such a way(6) that without the will of my heavenly Father not a hair can fall from my head;(7) indeed, all things must work together for my salvation.(8) Therefore, by His Holy Spirit He also assures me of eternal life(9) and makes me heartily willing and ready from now on to live for Him.(10)
Q2. What do you need to know in order to live and die in the joy of this comfort?
A2. First, how great my sins and misery are;(11) second, how I am delivered from all my sins and misery;(12) third, how I am to be thankful to God for such deliverance.(13)

You are very much like a pastor, Jim Robinson.
Definitions: In Latin, the word for shepherd is "pastor". In English, "pastor" is generally used to mean a clergyman or preacher. However in the scriptures it refers exclusively to the shepherds (elders) of a congregation, not the preachers or evangelists.
It is a privilege to have you as a wise leader. One of your most endearing qualities is your humility.
Ping to Jim Robinson’s prayer for God’s praise and our blessing.
Beautiful heartfelt prayer, boss.
Peace be with you.
Am blessed to see you posting your own prayers for our beleagured Republic.
God, imho, is not so keenly interested in slavish church attendance nor any other external religiosity, per se.
He IS super interested in a HEART-FELT
RELATIONSHIP THAT PUTS HIM FIRST ABOVE ALL ELSE 24/7/365 AS WELL AS WE CAN with His Holy Spirit’s help, manage.
And the prayer of a cowboy with no book larnin’ but from his heart is greatly to be preferred by God than the hogwash that comes from most seminaries.
It is also fitting and helpful for you to be vulnerable enough to express your fears, own your fears.
Feeling the fear and DOING THE RIGHT THING ANYWAY is what heros are made of.
Denying the fear is stupidity and contributes to foolhardiness.
Vulnerability is quite paradoxical.
Sincere, wise and fitting truly HUMBLE vulnerability may seem foolish on the surface. However, it earns incredible power and currency with God almighty and with those looking on—particularly those under one’s influence and authority.
The opposite of pride, denial, bluster, etc. achieve the opposite.
It’s good leadership to see you growing in the humble vulnerability dept.
God attends to the humble and resists the proud, as His word repeatedly declares.
And, it is good to see that your awareness, as evidenced by your expression of overwhelming fear, is catching up with the dreadful realities all of us are facing—in our beleagured Republic as well as all around the globe.
Though it appears that there is much you are still not quite aware of that is as true or truer than the things you may be newly aware of. It is later than probably most of us think.
I know of a prophetic source of some merit who thinks that Fresno will be protected Supernaturally by God. He’s a professor at your college there—Bill (William) Rice. He could be right. I’m a bit skeptical. I think at least the lower lying areas may end up a bit wet. I don’t know how high on the mountains the water is likely to go but I sure think the valley will be flooded. Therefore, I’d pray earnestly about taking the Texan Freeper up on their offer. Contact Bill Rice, if you see fit. He’ll probably give you a candid response. He’s a PhD marketing consultant/professor. Has traveled a lot for the State Dept.
However, I wouldn’t want to be within 400 miles or so of the Texas coast, nor lower in elevation than . . . I don’t know what the highes possible is in Texas. LOL. And I wouldn’t want to be too close to Mexico. The panhandle might be OK. I expect Houston to be nuked. Dallas will be a super disaster for one reason or another.
imho, we have very limited time left. So many sources are insisting that 2012 WILL DEFINITELY SEE CHAOS and/or disaster in many of our streets . . . whether from natural disaster, terrorists, false flag operations and/or WW3, I’m pretty much convinced that some level of that is quite likely before the SElection or shortly thereafter—more likely before, I’d think.
I think the civil war meme so often reported on by so many sources has now moved from the plausible to the highly likely category in my thinking and feeling. They REALLY DO WANT TO UTTERLY DESTROY OUR REPUBLIC. They are very determined and very capable from a list of ways.
We do ourselves nor our Republic nor our loved ones any good by being immobilized and certainly not by eating our own.
We MUST SEEK GOD FIRST AND SUPPORT ALL WHO DO SEEK GOD FIRST AND WHO SEEK TO DO GOOD IN THE LAND.
There is NO TIME LEFT for ANY other choice.
The petty side issues MUST be seen as petty side issues and set aside or ignored accordingly.
There is no longer any other rational choice.
You have come late to the realization that the reach, extent, powers of Marxist satanic globalism have long been entrenched and advancing aggressively in our land and around the world. Better late than never. Some at FR are still dragging their heels and resisting waking up. They may need set aside/ignored as fitting.
In any case, heart-felt prayers and heart-felt humble vulnerability before God and man is a good position for any leader to take. And those who resist sharing such a position with you are good to keep an eye on if not keep at arm’s length.
I’ll hush, for now, for a change.
I’m sorry, but the GOP has only been an opposition party in hollow, surface ways as called for in the script of the globalists as a charade.
The globalists have manipulated all sides against the middle at least since 1915. Many authorities would insist much earlier.
The evidence is now conclusive. I didn’t want to believe it either. I refused to believe it for far too long.
The GOP has carried out the globalists will almost as much as the overt Marxist globalists have. Bush SR and Kissinger under Reagan held Reagan’s nose to the globalist grindstone and insured that he did as he was ordered.
I still love Reagan and his love of the Biblical End Times as a topic. But I have to face facts. He was a great President partly because he was a great actor. And he told many of us what we were aching to hear from our President. Yet, he followed the globalist script handed him to the letter.
Kissinger and Bush SR were and are horrifically dedicated NWO globalists seriously interested in aggressivley reducing the world population and establishing the satanic antiChrist as world leader. That’s just the truth.
Dear Lord, hear our humble prayers.
