Franklin Graham – Pray for America

I agree with what Franklin Graham is doing with the prayer meetings at the State Capitols. He is going to all the State Capitols to pray for the country and encourage ALL Christians to register and vote their values. He doesn’t tell people who to vote for, just that we all need to vote. I have tried to explain the numbers in a previous blog post Vote The Bible.

The website for Franklin Graham’s tour is Decision America Tour . The about page states

““America is at a crossroads, and I believe we should take every opportunity to stand up for the things of God and His Word.” –Franklin Graham

Franklin Graham is traveling to all 50 states in 2016 to hold prayer rallies, to preach the Gospel, and to challenge believers to take a stand and take action. He’ll be urging Christians to vote, to live out their faith in every part of their lives, and to pray for our nation just as Nehemiah cried out to God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and restore hope to His people.”

Pray For A Come To JESUS Moment

That is my prayer for all our politicians. I pray for a move of GOD in Washington, and our so called leaders have their “Come to Jesus Moment”, and do what the Bible says in

2Ch 7:14  If my people, which are called by my name, shall 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.

Conversation with GOD

Don’t know who wrote this but I like it.

 

God: This is GOD. I heard your prayers. I thought I will chat.

Me: I do pray. I am always busy and can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.

God: Sure. Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you results. Activity consumes time. Productivity frees it.

Me: Tell me, why has life become complicated now?

God: Stop analyzing life. Just live it. Analysis is what makes it complicated.

Me: why are we then constantly unhappy?

God: You are worrying because you are analyzing. Worrying has become your habit. That’s why you are unhappy.

Me: But how can we not worry when there is so much uncertainty?

God: Uncertainty is inevitable, but worrying is optional.

Me: But then, there is so much pain due to uncertainty.

God: Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.

Me: If suffering is optional, why do good people always suffer?

God: Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer, with that experience their life become better not bitter.

Me: You mean to say such experience is useful?

God: Yes. Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons afterwards.

Me: But still, why should we go through such tests? Why can’t we be free from problems?

God: Problems Enhance Mental Strength. Inner strength comes from struggle and endurance, not when you are free from problems.

Me: We don’t know where we are heading.

God: If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. look inside. Looking outside, you dream. Looking inside, you awaken. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides insight.

Me: Sometimes not succeeding fast seems to hurt more than moving in the right direction. What should I do?

God: Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.

Me: In tough times, how do you stay motivated?

God: Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.

Me: What surprises you about people?

God: when they suffer they ask, “why me?” When they prosper, they never ask “Why me”. Everyone wishes to have truth on their side, but few want to be on the side of the truth.

Me: Sometimes I ask, who I am, why am I here. I can’t get the answer.

God: Seek not to find who you are, but to determine who you want to be. Stop looking for a purpose as to why you are here. Create it.

Me: How can I get the best out of life?

God: Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

Me: Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.

God: There are no unanswered prayers. At times the answer is NO. Don’t believe your doubts and doubt your beliefs. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve. “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”

Me: How can I get close to you?

God: You are. Stop worrying about it and get on with life. Love all creation – spurn none.

How “We The People” Win

I feel that God has been dealing with me on some things since 2008. I was finding myself staying angry and ready to fight at every turn. I started thinking about it and realized that seems to be the way Satan has always worked, he wants people angry and fighting so they are not walking in Jesus’s footsteps and certainly not thinking clearly.
I don’t believe that is the way most American’s and Christian’s want to conduct themselves. I was feeling forced into it. Circumstances seemed to demand it because it felt like “We The People” were being stripped of our God given rights and that has been happening. I realized that as a Christian it is my responsibility to follow God’s Word and what I have to do is pray for myself, my family, my country, our politicians and the world. It has proven very difficult because the enemy is very good at lies and manipulation.
2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall 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.
That verse tells us all we need to know. When enough of us do what that verse says “We Win”.
I trust the American people to make the right choice if we are either left alone to make that choice. The enemy will try to keep us confused and angry so we need to pray on it, register to vote, then vote. One other thing: Forget about which political party a candidate belongs to, vote for the person not the party.

Christian Votes

 I got this in an email and thought it makes sense to me. I would add one other thing……..PRAY!
 
This message is well worth reading and then forwarding to others. The Unites States needs help in getting things turned around for the benefit of the people.
When we get 100,000,000, that’s one hundred million willing Christians to BOND together, voice their concerns and vote, we can take back America with God’s help, Become one of the One hundred million, then let’s get 200 million. It can be done by sending this email to your friends. Do the math. It only takes a willing heart and a fed up soul. God Bless America and Shine your light on Her..
In 1952
President Truman established one day a year as a
“National Day of Prayer.”
—————————————————————————————————————————-
In 1988
President Reagan designated the
First Thursday in May of each year as the National Day of Prayer. 
—————————————————————————————————————————
In June 2007
(then) Presidential Candidate Barack Obama
declared that the USA
“Was no longer a Christian nation.”
—————————————————————
This year President Obama
canceled the 21st annual National Day
of Prayer ceremony
at the White House under the ruse Of “not wanting to offend anyone”
————————————————————————
BUT… on September 25, 2009
from 4 AM until 7 PM,
a National Day of Prayer FOR THE MUSLIM RELIGION
was Held on Capitol Hill, Beside the White House.
There were over 50,000 Muslims in D.C. that day.
HE PRAYS WITH THE MUSLIMS!
I guess it Doesn’t matter
if “Christians “Are offended by this event –
We obviously Don ‘t count as “anyone” Anymore.
The direction this country is headed should strike fear in the heart of every Christian,
especially knowing that the Muslim religion believes that if Christians cannot be converted, they should be annihilated.
Send this to ten people

Tax Exempt

We considered applying for tax exempt status but as we discussed it we came to the consensus that if we ask the government for tax exempt status then they in turn have some say so about what we say. With all that has come about recently I don’t want anything to do with any entity that would interfere with free speech.

So we decided to keep our freedom of speech.

The Jesus Revolution

I have been hearing about something since the news broke about the NSA getting all the phone information and monitoring internet searches and basically monitoring every move we make. The idea is if they are going to listen to our phone calls, read our email, monitor our web searches why not use that behavior to make sure they hear about God. I liked the way it sounded so from this point on every email, internet post or phone call will end with God Bless You.
I hope it catches on because anyone who snoops for a living could use as much exposure to God and His Word they can get. You never know if God likes the idea maybe some of those people will accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and stop doing the bad things they are doing. As Christians we are supposed to tell people about Jesus and spread God’s Word and this seems like a way to do it in a big way.
I pray for our government officials to see The Light, repent of their wicked ways, ask for fogiveness and accept Jesus as their personal Savior.

God Bless You
