When in prayer, just remember what CS Lewis said: Prayer doesn’t change God, it changes you.

What can this time in prayer and fasting time change in your heart and mind that may make a difference.

With that said, put me down for Monday, November 3nd (I know you didn’t have it on the list) before election. I am taking the day off to work phone banks and being in constant prayer will help.

Prayer and Fasting Ping!

A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing;
Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing:
For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and power are great, and, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.

Did we in our own strength confide, our striving would be osing;
Were not the right Man on our side, the Man of God’s own choosing:
Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth, His Name, from age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.

And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us:
The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.

That word above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours through Him Who with us sideth:
Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;
The body they may kill: God’s truth abideth still,
His kingdom is forever.

Mar­tin Lut­her, 1529

If I need to take XANAX - does that still count as fasting?

Battle Hymn of the Republic

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;
His truth is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps;
His day is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His day is marching on.

I have read a fiery Gospel writ in burnished rows of steel;
“As ye deal with My contemners, so with you My grace shall deal”;
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with His heel,
Since God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Since God is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat;
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet;
Our God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Our God is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free;
[originally …let us die to make men free]
While God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! While God is marching on.

He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave,
He is wisdom to the mighty, He is honor to the brave;
So the world shall be His footstool, and the soul of wrong His slave,
Our God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Our God is marching on.

We may be stocking up on canned goods on Nov 5. Or the Mrs. and I might be high-tailing it to Des Moines for safety.

ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
Forward into battle see His banners go!

Refrain:
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.

At the sign of triumph Satan’s host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers, on to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver at the shout of praise;
Brothers lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.

Like a mighty army moves the church of God;
Brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod.
We are not divided, all one body we,
One in hope and doctrine, one in charity.

Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
But the church of Jesus constant will remain.
Gates of hell can never ’gainst that church prevail;
We have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.

Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.
Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King,
This through countless ages men and angels sing.

Won’t the election be over? Or are you counting on Ohio being the previous Florida mess? I just think it might be.

“As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free...”

To me, these words are the essense of our heritage.

Could be — but I think Western Pennsylvania will carry the state this year. What about the voter fraud in Philadelphia?

That’s wonderful! And you know, I am too. ;-)
But there are times when I/we are called to use extra effort. And this is one of them.
And remember...we’re fasting at the same time. ;-)
I am glad to be a part of this wonderful group! ;-)

Hey, guess what? I got an email forward today, from Australia....they are praying for our election! Praise the Lord....you know they had a huge 7 year drought, and this preacher from a place called “catch the fire” organized a prayer gathering in their Parliament house...for the public. See, they don't have “separation of church and state”; anyway, in October 2007...they prayed for an end to their drought, and it started raining....they have had record rain fall since, and their reservoirs are filling up! It is great....

And during that prayer service they prayed for “God's will” over their November election. But, the guy their preacher “prophesied” would win....didn't. But, I think their new leader is a Christian and a nice guy. They are all liberal over there anyway. Their conservative party is even named the “liberal party”!

Just wanted to encourage everyone, and tell you that Christians all over the world are one heart and soul with us...

Lots of different kinds of fasts.

Some folks eat or fast only the following:

Some meat only.
Some veggies only
Some fruit only
Some liquids only and Praise God for VitaMix
Some breads only
Some juices only
Some water only
Some water and vitamins only.
Some liquid diet drinks only.

Whatever fits one’s leading and constitutional abilities.

I usually have to do a liquid fast of some sort.
I often go with meatless . . . fruit, liquid, breads, cheese

I seem to get debilitated and immobilized quickly if I try water only.

If tomorrow all the things wer gone, I worked for all my life
and I’d have to start again with just my children and my wife
I thank my lucky stars to be livin’ here today
Cuz the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away

And I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died who gave that right to me
And I gladly stand up next to you nad defend her still today
Cuz there aint no doubt I love this land.
GOD BLESS THE USA!!!!!!!!!!!!

From the lakes of Minnesota to the hills of Tennessee
Across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea
From Detroit down to Houston and New York to LA
Where there’s pride in every American heart
It’s time we stand and say:

Repeat refrain(second paragraph)

God Bless the USA Lee Greenwood

Thank you for that great report!

God’s people all over the world are praying for us,
because this country is the breadbasket of the world and the protector of freedom for many other nations.

And God hears His people. He also has us in His hands.
Praise His name!!!!!
