Day of fasting, prayer a prelude to Nov. 4
World Net Daily ^ | 10/27/08

Posted on 10/30/2008 1:44:48 PM PDT by truthandlife

The foundation launched in honor of famed Christian speaker, broadcaster and leader D. James Kennedy, who founded the Coral Ridge Ministries, has announced a day of prayer for Nov. 3.

"We are about to set a course that will affect our country for generations to come," said a statement from Jennifer Kennedy Cassidy of the D. James Kennedy Foundation.

"For this reason we are calling on all Christian leaders and their congregations to join with us for a day of fasting and prayer the day before the election on Monday, November 3rd," she said.

"Please join with us as God instructed us in 2 Chronicles 7:14," she said, citing the Bible:

If my people, who are called by my name, will 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.

"We're less than a week until the most important election in our lifetime. Must is at stake that is vital to our nation," she said.

then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

That is why I think Prop 8* from a faith standpoint is more imporatant than the Presidential Election

Marriage and the Sabbath were GOD’s commandments to Mankind if all repent of there sins restore his Law that Marriage is 1 Man and 1 Woman he will heal there land.

I and a few others are planning on it. We definitely need divine intervention.

This evening our church will conduct an election pray night. My husband and I will be there and other countless folk. WE HAVE TO UNITE and seek God for forgiveness and Mercy. We CAN NOT win this election without him. ONLY the Lord can change hearts and minds. We’ve done EVERYTHING humanly possible that can be done. NOW it’s in the hands of the Lord. I just pray come 5th we still have our freedoms and the right to worship the Lord in His house. GOD HELP US!

We've been doing that on FR for a few weeks now. I'm happy to learn that Christians everywhere are going to be fasting and praying too. IF anyone wants to join our FR group, just contact kingattax and he will add you to his ping list.

First reading for today's Mass -- October 30, 2008. Words in blue are my substitutions.

Reading 1
Eph 6:10-20

Brothers and sisters:
Draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power.
Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm
against the tactics of the Devil.
For our struggle is not with flesh and blood
but with the principalities, with the powers,
with the world rulers of this present darkness,
with the evil spirits in the heavens. Principalities, powers, darkness, evil spirits all refer to fallen angels or to the devil.
Therefore, put on the armor of God, armor=belief
that you may be able to resist on the evil day evil day=election day
and, having done everything, to hold your ground.
So stand fast with your loins girded in truth, while voting
clothed with righteousness as a breastplate,
and your feet shod in readiness for the Gospel of peace.
In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield,
to quench all the flaming arrows of the Evil One. who wants us to be voting for abortion
And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God. the Bible

With all prayer and supplication,
pray at every opportunity in the Spirit.
To that end, be watchful with all perseverance and supplication
for all the holy ones and also for me, Pray for the innocent babies
that speech may be given me to open my mouth,
to make known with boldness the mystery of the Gospel
for which I am an ambassador in chains, Are each of us an ambassador as St. Paul was?
so that I may have the courage to speak as I must.
 
 
I was the reader at Daily Mass today and all these thoughts went flashing through my mind as I prepared for proclaiming this readings.  Any thoughts?
 
Pray for the candidates that support life -- McCain-Palin

When I was trying to set up a time & date with a supervisor for a conference, she pleaded, “Not Nov. 5th. I live in a minority area; I’m afraid of leaving my house after Election Day.”

“This will be a real fast, not a Cindy Sheehan Jamba Juice fast.”

And not a showmanship fast until gorging at sundown like the Moslems (Spelling intentional.)

Amen. Our Church will unite for prayer Sunday night. But have been and will continue to be praying throughout this critical time. GOD is in control, everyone....and He is not mocked. Take heart....be not afraid.....He will never leave you nor forsake you, nor me. Even if darkness falls, His light will shine in that darkness as the noon day sun.

I spoke to my pastor if we could have a prayer & fasting day on Monday Nov 3 at our church, and I explained that a number of Christian organizations & key leaders, such as Family Focus, Coral Ridge Ministries, Janet Porter & others were encouraging all Christians to set aside Nov 3 as a Day of Prayer (& fasting for those who wish to). My pastor was fully supportive & encouraging with this and will announce it in our services on Sunday. I plan on taking as much of the work day off on Monday as I can, and then remaining at our church till 9 pm, to pray with those who show up.

I have been desperately praying and pleading with God that if he was willing to spare the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah, if only 10 righteous souls were found, than I am begging with God, on behalf of our founding fathers and the Christian values that our nation as founded on, and the sacrifice & bloodshed & death & wounded of millions of Americans for our country & freedom & liberty, and last of all the desperate prayers of hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of Christians right now, who are praying & and asking for God, to defeat the resources & media & financial onslaught of Obama & his socialist-fascist ideology & his thugs & brownshirts.

Please God do not allow this evil man to gloat in smug arrogance & haughtiness & pride & to bask in godlike adulation from the evil ignorant masses who rabidly seek to worship this false teacher & anti-christ "savior" of the world. My heart is breaking if God does not hear or answer our cries, but would have been willing to spare 2 debauched cities, Sodom & Gomorrah, for only 10 righteous souls. I cannot think of a greater atrocity or insult to the memories of our founding fathers or the bloodshed & sacrifice of men & women who have fought & died for our country, than to allow a pathological liar, an absolute demonic, deceiver, immoral reprobate like Barack Hussein Obama to become the next U.S. president.

I know what you mean.

I woke up at 4:15 am this morning, partly because I had a 7 am meeting that I was presenting at, and I was keyed up for that..... but also I have been so concerned & praying about this election & begging God for his mercy & grace, to spare our nation from the abomination of an evil, immoral, pathological liar, corrupt reprobate, as Barack Hussein Obama.

I could not get back to bed, so I just prayed some more & then got up. Sometimes at work I will close my office door and get on my knees to cry out to God, to spare our nation from evil Obama, and also to pray for other conservative candidates such as Michelle Bachman, Marilyn Musgrave, Bill Russell (running against Murtha) and any of candidates to defeat the evil, evil democRATs. And of course I always pray for Sarah Palin, that God will put a hedge of protection around her & her family and that the slings & arrows & attacks of the enemy (the demonRATs, the rabid media and the devil-but I repeat myself). I pray that these vicious lies & attacks will in fact be turned right back onto those evil reprobates who are making these attacks.

We are in a spiritual battle for the heart & soul of our nation, to beg for God's mercy & grace to save up from spiritual darkness & oppression & communism.

See my post #18.
I was so glad that my pastor agreed to let me host a day of prayer & fasting at our church on Nov 3, and we will announce it at our Sunday morning & evening services

I dont know you, yet my spirit knows I do know you, and could easily have fellowship with you. I see this in Sarah Palin too! There is this sence of peace and it is hard to explain to an unbeliever, but it is there. I do not get this feeling from Obama...he is empty...and my spirit does sence something dangerous...I am not sure it is with him or who ever he follows, but he is not right.

As I was praying today. I came upon this scripture. I’d like to share it with you. God’s Will be done!
1 Corinthians chapter 2

vs 10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God. Which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritural thoughts with spriritual word,

But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no man. Fo who has known the mind of the Lord, that He should instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ!

God is good!

Wonderful! Thank you, and all believers for the support.

I have been posting on the Proposition 8 Youtube Video for the last week in sharing the Gospel and the imporant commandment of Marriage that is from GOD.

For a Man shall leave his family and cleave to this wife and they shall be one.

And how this great country was founded on the strength of the FAMILY...

It is amazing how many people I have been posting with that are haters of GOD hate Christianity, mock scoff ridicule..It truly is a *Spiritual War* of GOOD vs EVIL...Many people support Prop 8 but many do not and hate Christians.

I remind myself that Jesus said in the End Times we would be hated just like he was, but to pray and remain steadfast in our faith. I know Jesus is giving everyone in this world a chance to repent, as he stands at the door of this world, to judge all humankind.

I will be going to Qualcomm Stadium tomorrow for the *Call* and praying that marraige will be restored to how it always shall be and that all people repent of there sins and turn there hearts twoard GOD.
GOd Bless our World!
