The good news is that "Where evil increased, Grace did MORE increase" and God wins in the end.
Indeed, "Where evil increased, Grace did MORE increase"! And, in timelessness, God has already "won".

"More Upheaval Is Coming...But Can Be Thwarted If We Come Into Proper Alignment."
By Patricia King

September 6, 2005
For a few days now, I have felt very unsettled in my spirit. The New Orleans disaster has been on my heart, but also, I have been receiving warnings that more upheaval is coming. It is almost as though I can smell war and crisis.
It is Not Good!
It is not good, but can be thwarted, if we come into proper alignment. I sense upheavals in many nations, but my spirit is especially feeling a warning for North America, with a specific prayer burden for the USA.
Many Lives Could be Lost!
I have seen a vision of the enemy planting grenade-like objects in the land and getting ready to detonate them. I believe this involves terrorism and a "sudden" attack. I have also seen further shakings in the land of such magnitude that many people's lives could be lost. I also see critical, economic shakings coming that man will have no control over. I see increased taxation and escalation of interest rates and commodities. I see crime and violence out of control as lawlessness increases.
Prayer can Move God to Intervene!
Prayer and repentance can thwart disaster. The answer is to go to prayer and to repent for our sins. This is an urgent call! There must be a returning to God and His ways in order to see the nation abide in peace. If we can secure enough prayer -- a mass move of prayer and repentance -- then we will see the intervention of God. Like Nineveh, God will then withdraw His hand of judgment from the land, and we will live in safety. If not, then we will live in unrestrained crisis.
Pray, Church, Pray!
The following prayer directives are things that we must intercede for until righteousness is established:
Pray for all Christians to turn away from all sin.
The Lord has revealed that the Body of Christ is full of sin, sins such as pride, religiosity, gossip, slander, immorality, dishonesty, unbelief, selfishness, injustice, and perversion -- sins of commission and sins of omission. Sin must be addressed in body. There is much sloppiness in the church, regarding unaddressed and unrepented sin. This must come into alignment, in order for a revival of righteousness and morality to come into the land. As long as there is sin, the enemy has a landing strip. As long as there is unaddressed darkness in the church, we lack authority.
Pray for Christians to rise up in their God-given authority.
I hear many Christians say at times of crisis, "Why doesn't God do something about this?" God is always right. He is always good and true. He is looking for His people to use their God-given authority. The heavens belong to the Lord, but He has given the earth to man (see Genesis 1:27,28). All of creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. We must rise up. Pray for the church to come out of its slumber.
Pray for God's people to discern the times.
These are not days that we can be ignorant concerning what the Lord is calling for. These are treacherous days, days of darkness and gloom; these are days of judgments. We must discern the times and have wisdom on how to walk with God with uncompromised faith during this time. Pray for discernment.
Cry out for revival.
2 Chronicles 7:14 says that "If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and will heal their land." If we don't secure a revival, then there are 2 options left: the judgments of God being manifest or being left to the consequences of our own sin. The last option is the most harsh, brutal, and devastating. Lets go for revival; it will take fervency in prayer. Let's shake off complacency. If we can tip the scales of justice in favor of mercy, then we will have revival. If not, then we will have further judgment and/or be left to the fruit of our own actions.
Pray for righteous in our justice system.
This is for every nation, but especially for the USA. Pray for three new U.S. Court Judges to be put in place, who are godly and wise in judgments. Pray for these to be righteous, moral, and favored individuals. Pray for all of the judges to be in perfect alignment with the will of God.
Pray fervently for government leaders.
This is absolutely essential in this hour. Bind their minds to the will of God. Do not project your own judgments or biases into the prayer. Pray much in tongues, and pray the Word of God concerning wisdom, justice, truth, and righteousness.
Believe for a prayer movement to sweep over the land.
Pray for individuals, ministries, and Christian leaders in arenas of economy, education, medical and political spheres, to lead prayer meetings. Believe for daily prayer meetings in every community, where people can call on God together.
Pray for "Righteous Revolutionaries" to arise.
Invite the Lord to pour His Spirit out upon individuals (of all ages), who will courageously rise up to call for righteousness in the world around them.
Pray for Homeland Security.
The safety of a nation lies in the Lord. Only the Lord can give this freedom, and it can only be released if we are in alignment to His holy ways. Pray, Pray, Pray.
Pray for the discovery of the enemy's plans.
Believe for security institutions to discover plots that would threaten the security of the nation. Pray for the church to increase in prophetic and revelatory sensitivity and precision. Pray that the church will inform the government as to what the plots of threat are and give details concerning timing and place.
Pray for the Lord to have His rightful place of worship in the earth.
Call forth many more 24 hour worship mandates and for a new call on individuals to worship and exalt the righteous rule of Christ. Spend time in focused worship every day.
Pray for a reversal of all ungodly decisions made through the last generation (i.e. taking prayer and Bible reading out of the schools; abortion laws; opening stores and businesses on the Lord's Day, etc). Pray for the emergence of the Josiah Generation -- the younger generation who, like King Josiah, can potentially restore the righteous foundations of the land, in one generation.
Again, I cannot begin to communicate how critical I believe this time is. Let's go to prayer. Let's remain in prayer!
Searching for a Righteous Remnant to Pour out On!
I have also felt that God is, once again, searching to and fro for the righteous remnant in the land, who are willing to walk in a no-compromise position of righteousness, holiness and purity, so that He can release Kingdom Power and Authority to be used in times of need and crisis. He longs to pour out on those, who will cry out and stand up for His will, and His ways to be re-established here, on earth, as they are in heaven.
As part of this, He has called us to bring together a major gathering of prophets, speakers, and worshippers to help release a new level of power in the lives of those who are hungry for more -- power for justice, power for evangelism, power for missions, power for the prophetic, power for healing, and power to bear witness of who He is. The time for this release of Kingdom power is now. That is why this gathering is being called "Dunamis Now"!
