For where two or three have gathered together in My name Matt 18:20 9/28/08
For some time, through FReepmail, several FReepers have provided each other with a way to share prayer requests and praises. Now that the Non-denominational category has been established at Freerepublic, we are offering a weekly thread in which posts of your requests and praises are welcome. Anyone, regardless of denomination, is welcome to bring their concerns here. The one thing that we hope to establish here, is that at a set time on Sunday evening, 11:00 p.m. in the Eastern time zone, 10:00 p.m. Central time, 9:00 p.m. Mountain time, and 8:00 p.m. Pacific time, we will as a group, lift these concerns up in prayer. Individual prayer at any time is, of course, encouraged. If anyone desires to post an "anonymous" request, just word it in a manner such as: " Please lift up my prayer (or praise) for a personal concern."
He has promised to be in our midst tonight as we gather wherever we may be, as a voice in one accord, to praise Him and ask on behalf of others for His Grace to be granted to them.
Tonights gathering for prayer is going to be dedicated to speaking as one in beseeching our Lord to confuse the lying enemies of the American Republic, to confound the efforts of these lying enemies within the nation who are seeking to indenture the American people to the debt being posed falsely as the only way' to save the nations financial future, and to bless opposition congressional representatives and Governor Sarah Palin with the divine wisdom need to squelch lies coming from the evil one now speaking through too many elected representatives.
This thread may be the last prayer gathering thread due to lack of participation. I pray we will have a large gathering tonight wherever you may be, for our Lord has promised to be in our midst when we meet in His name.
Do you ping? Or, are we on our own?
I’m in. See you guys back at 10pm CST.
If it means enough to me, I find I can remember ... and I usually print the prayer requests out to remind myself so I’m ‘on the same page’ with fellow gathers in prayer.
Thanks for the ping.
Although I don’t post here at the times of prayer (CFIDS makes me go to bed early) I appreciate being part of all Christians here who love this country and want the best for her.
We know God and His Son, Jesus Christ, will answer our prayers, but we must never set a time limit. At times, that is difficult for me, because I want to stop the slander from the Left “RIGHT NOW!”
Even if I’m not here in person, I’m here in spirit, and I want to say now that Jesus Christ will bless us all in our efforts, even if its only “two or three gathered in” His Name.
Prayer is a powerful thing, and I will continue to pray for the bravery of our representatives all over the world, the courage of young men and women who volunteer to fight tyranny, and for the wisdom of our elected officials to do the right things at the right times.
These things I say in Jesus’ name. Amen
Please, continue to post this thread. I think it is vital, and I think also that it will become a haven as the weeks go on towards the election. We need to be cohesive in our prayerful efforts.
Praying for our country tonight. Also, please lift up my children in your prayers...some are having some problems. Thanks.
I’m in. Only the good Lord Almighty can save this country from the Uhbama and the devil’s minions known as the Democrats and the media. I have never seen such a tidal wave of deceit (old ugly’s calling card) and evil, directed at defeating all that is good and right (ok, not since nearly 2000 years ago). My He have mercy on us and bless the USA once more.
The director of the democrat party is the father of lies, a murderer from the start. If anyone doubts it, look at the democrat party using the slaughter of alive unborn (and forced premature birthed born children) as a means to empower their political capital. Until the Lord returns to end the age, Evil always has a presence, even in a Godly Church. we are to resist evil, He will defeat it. By praying that His SPirit confuse the enemy and confound their leis, we trun the battle over to the ultimate winner, He will deal with them, and win, rather than put it all on us to win the day. We cannot of our own efforts defeat demonic brilliance. And we are witnessing demonic brilliance spewing lies straight from the mouths of democrats smiling on the television. Never before int he history of the species has the spectacle been visible at such a level as today. But the Truth will also be so fully seen. Let us pray His Truth will be champion in our land.
I join you and the others in prayer - for our nation tonight - God is in control, no matter who stark it looks for our country. HE is still on the throne and our nation as all nations stand before Him and kneel to HIS authority.
I am praying that as judgement comes on this country, that He will remember His mercy. We know that His love for us is unfailing - even when we have gone so far astray as a nation. He seeks us. Read Psalm 107 - I have done this today. God’s abundant love and mercy and grace goes out to nations even in the midst of the worst rebellion we can commit.
All praise and honor to Him, our Savior and Lord, the coming King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
My post is late, as I was with my small group, but my prayers have not stopped this weekend.
“So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” Isa. 59:19
“It is because fo the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.”
Lord, at this point I don’t know how to pray except Your Will be done. I’m not smart enough, nor do I know the beginning from the end. My life and the life of this nation is in Your Hands, and, we pray that You will bring this nation back to You. Father we love you and ask that the request brought tonight be answered according to Your Will, for that way is always best in the long run.
We hold NO confidence in the men and women in Washington, but throw ourselves on Your mercy and ask that you rescue us from ourselves. Bind the enemy and his work over Washington and our lives, and for this we will give You the praise for the victory.
In the Blessed Name of Jesus whom I serve AMEN
I will remember your children in prayer. And also the leaders of our great nation that they will be blessed with wisdom at this very unusual time.
“This thread may be the last prayer gathering thread due to lack of participation. I pray we will have a large gathering tonight wherever you may be, for our Lord has promised to be in our midst when we meet in His name.”
Count me in, and please don’t let it be the last thread due to lack of participation. A seed takes time!
My best to you all, and I would like to add to the prayer list:
My brother was sent to VA for work and is now on his way to NJ to pick up a long-time friend he met on the Internet. My brother is rushing up there and then rushing back to VA this evening because his friend and friend’s children are about to be put on the curbside, literally and no joking around - late on the rent.
This friend has two small children, one aged 3 years and the other aged 8 months, to bring to and to bless my home and family with, and for me to see after while he, their father, is taught the skill of welding to be able to better provide for them.
His name is Rich, and I ask that you all include my brother, Dan, and Rich and his children in your prayers, that God keep them safe on the road, and see that those children arrive safely in my arms for care while their Dad earns a living for them.
That their Dad be blessed in his caring for and raising these precious children; and that I may be a blessing to the children while they are in my care. That I do my best for Our Lord and for them, and raise them strong in Our Lord for the short while they are in my care.
MHG, PLEASE, keep this thread going every Sunday. Please! People like me may not always post but do come to it for comfort. Please.
I’m here and read your request.
Know that you and yours are being fervently prayed for.
Amen. ... Heading for the prayer room.
Prayer going up for your father's strength ... he's a man standing up for what he believes to be right, sustaining the very jobs the strikers are endangering. We pray for your father's strength and that God's Spirit will enter into the situation to bring wisdom to those negotiating terms and conditions. Now is not the time for labor to be biting the hand that makes jobs available to sustain households, nor the time for management to exploit workers.
Prayer going up for Birmingham Rain, to give her the strength and love needed in bringing in the little ones to share her love and caring. She will be a blessing to the little ones and they will in turn be a conduit for God's love to flow to her. Doing the Lord's work, is how my grandmother Galloway use to put it. He empowers us when we seek to do work for His glory, to allow His love to flow to others.
Prayers up for greyfoxx39 and her family. The Lord knows the needs and is the source of love to bring peace between couples.
And thank you all for joining together tonight in His name. Having Him in our presence, knowing He keeps His promises, is calming. We know Whom is Lord. We offer this nation to Him and bow our knee to humble ourselves bfore Him. 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not unto your own understanding, and He will direct your paths.'
I look forward with eager anticipation to see what The Lord will do in the coming days. He will confound those who scheme to tell lies, and confound their efforts to assassinate the character of good men and women. His wisdom wil bring a shine to the Truth of His Way when our leaders seek His face and serve His Truth.
Thanks be to God for His Peace which comes with trusting in Him to be The Deliverer of His people. For we know that ALL THINGS, not some, not a few, but all things work together for good to them that love God, to those called according to His purposes. Governor Sarah Palin and Senator John McCain as pro-life public servants are called according to His purposes.
We know this because we know a man who defended the killing by neglect of alive prematurely born children cannot be in God's purpose, for he serves evil in the workings.
We know that the democrat party cannot be called according to His purposes because they have been empowering their political capital through promotion of the slaughter of alive unborn children for decades.
Lord open their eyes to see the evil they are serving, and turn them from their wickedness, to protect the precious little ones. Lord confuse the tongues of those who purpose to lie for their political empowerment, and confound their designs to rule our land by their wick intentions.
Thank you, Lord. We turn to You as our Soter, our Deliverer.
Amen to your prayer thread. I think it’s a great idea, please keep it going.
Maybe on the day/evening of Sarah’s VP debate, you could post a prayer thread in the Chat forum. Will be good to have lots of folks praying for her that entire day and during the debate, and more people view the Chat threads than this area, it seems like.
God hears prayers!
Good idea! I’ll ping you Thursday afternoon.
I will add your children to my list of FReepers to be prayed for. There are so many...But God knows them all, so it is an honor to speak to Him on your behalf.
No thanks necessary.
Dear MHG and All,
Thanks so much to all who prayed for me, my brother, his friend and precious children. They arrived safely back from NJ to VA Monday afternoon after having packed up what of their belongings could be fit in the bed of my brother’s work truck.
I believe. I believe God hears our prayers and kept them safely on the road due to prayers of many.
Plans change from minute to minute, but hopefully I’ll see them Friday night or Saturday. I can’t wait to hug and hold those dear children! Even though I’m not their natural mother, I’m the temporary mother-fill-in God has chosen to provide them and it’s no small blessing. Our whole family has gathered ‘round to take them in and excited about their coming to be with us for a while.
My Mom had already been busy about a baby bed and some strollers and my daughter’s asking how much a 3-year old can be taught. What a joy!
The father of the children may THINK we are helping him. Oh, no. He is giving us — never met, and sight unseen — trust with his most beloved, and we keep praying for guidance.
I came back to this thread to give a huge THANKS and also to write down those in need of prayers. Shouldn’t stop on Sunday since God has given us the ability to pray always.
My best to you all, and
Keeping You Firmly in My Prayers,
Please, add me if you get a list going. I’m going to pray anyway, but would love to be “gathered” for it!
You do a great service, MHG.
Will ping you tomorrow afternoon. I’m hoping to ‘gather’ a few to pray for an hour before the debate and right straight through until it’s over. There is a formal scheduled prayer group, maybe in one of the denominational lists.
I will still be at work when the debate starts, but will be praying for her throughout the day and evening. I should get home about half-way through the debate.
I have friends here in town who are planning on praying. We need lots of intercessory prayer going up for her.
Also, since it's doubtful that Gwen Ifill will be removed, let us all pray that her heart will be touched by God to lead her to be a fair and unbiased moderator.
Does anyone have a URL for another prayer thread for this event? Please post it if you do.
Marvin, are you still going to try and ping everyone to meet to pray together for an hour beforehand?
Yes, will be posting a gathering thread toworrow about five, to gather an hour before the debate(at 8PM eastern; debate starts at 9PM) and pray right through to the end of the debate and soin cycles.
Make that ‘spin cycles’ as in the liberals’ liars clubs at CNN and MSNBC.
What a visual! (Snicker) ;)
You know FRiend, the Lord DOES have a sense of humor and I wouldn’t rule ANYTHING out, after all: He already put a hook in 0bama’s mouth and made him call up Joe Biden to be his VP, you know what I’m saying here? lol
Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.
Since God is not bound by time, I’m sure your agreeing with us in prayer counts even it it’s not at the same time as we are.
God bless you.
That's what's making the end times scenario look more and more probable each day.
The way people just seem to be worshipping the guy and his chin up/ slight frown on his face attitude as if he thinks he's portraying himself as worthy of the adoration.
I guess he never learned from Herod....
Thanks! I think my main purpose in saying what I did was to remind everyone that though I don’t post when most of you do (due to CFIDS) I do pray for the very things everyone else is praying for. I would LIKE to be able to stay up and be coherent, but... :o])
Prayer is prayer, and God hears them all.
And may he bless you as well, metmom!
That’s what my husband just said to me not an hour ago - that he is starting to see parallels such that he is starting to suspect that Obama is the antichrist. It is truly a scary thought, and I hope that he isn’t, and that he will merely be defeated and sent back to mediocracy despite old ugly’s best efforts. Praying...
I pray for our country every day and will step up the prayers for Sarah Palin today.
I can't join in the gathering one hour before the debate as it will be in the middle of the night for me. But I'll get to see it in its entirety tomorrow morning (my off day) and I can give this thread a
Reminder ping of the need to pray between now and tomorrow evening for Sarah Palin and our country during this debate.
Thanks for the ping. I have Sarah in my prayers for tonight's debate.
Thank you so much for the invite to this thread, greyfoxx!
I will be praying throughout the night, as I have been off and on all day today, and yesterday as well...
I am praying that God will have mercy on us as a nation of sinners, and that He will steady Sarah’s heart and mind tonight, and give her the strength she needs to stand firm in her beliefs and convictions, and that the exact right words to use in order to clearly communicate with all those watching will come readily to her.
I am praying that those who are watching will be touched by the Lord and will have their hearts and minds open to hearing the truth. I am also praying that whatever traps and snares have been set before Sarah tonight by the (obviously) biased moderator will have no effect! I pray that Gwen Ifill - if she is planning on trying to sabotage Palin will be rendered impotent! I pray that due to her being under the influence of pain killers due to her broken ankle that she will not be easily used as a pawn for the evil one, the deceiver, and that Satan will be blocked at every turn from being able to interfere with her, or anyone else tonight!
I am praying that all those who are sending out negative energy in her direction, and all those who are sowing hatred and discontent in regards to her candidacy whether they are doing so out of pure hate or fear, ignorance or otherwise are caught up in their own snares, and that their plans will be laid to waste by the Lord our God!
I pray these things in the name of Jesus Christ, and with reverence to our Lord God Almighty, the King of Heaven and Earth! May His will be done tonight, whatever the outcome may be!
I’m not sure about Obama being THE Anti-Christ as I have heard some people that I respect a lot for their study in matters of Biblical prophecy and such give a few reasons why he wouldn’t fit the bill...
HOWEVER, if Obama is not, THE Anti-Christ of Biblical Prophecy, I can tell you what he most definitely IS! ;)
First, Obama is a warning to all believers, and un-believers alike. He (again) illustrates - as many have throughout history - how easy it is, especially for those without true faith to be swept up in, and deceived by a smooth-talker, and one who preys on their fears and emotions... We can see where even people here on FR lately have started succumbing to the propaganda we are being bombarded with on an ever-increasing basis over the last few weeks alone.
And Secondly, Obama is DEFINITELY one who would lead the way, and create a situation in which the true Anti-Christ could come to power. This is primarily due to his naivete when it comes to foreign policy, and diplomacy, as well as his domestic policies which will place our country at great risk. His support for the UN and such will also make it even more likely that our country would be pushed into going along with the one-world government that the Anti-Christ will preside over...
OK, well those are my thoughts on this... I’m praying too. I will readily admit that if it weren’t for some of the things I’ve read on this subject by people more educated in eschatology than I, I would DEFINITELY be thinking that he IS the Anti-Christ for SURE! And, even though these are well-educated people I’m relying on, even they will admit that they could be wrong. It’s not as if the prophecies in our Bibles are clear-cut! :)
Anyway, as I said, I’m praying in agreement that Obama will be merely a speck on the ash-heap of history come November 5th.
