Tuesday’s Prayers for America (9/23/214)

“Run for your lives. There are too many Philistines! We’ll all be slaughtered,” yelled the Israelites.

The soldiers dropped their weapons en masse and fled the battlefield for the hills surrounding the area. Clouds of dust marked their scrambling footsteps, all heading to safety.

Four Israelites remained in the middle of the battlefield. They formed a small square with their backs to each other and their swords pointing out at the advancing Philistine army.

“What’s the plan, my king?” shouted Eleazar over his shoulder.

King David nodded his head. “Our God is for us,” proclaimed the king. “Let’s continue fighting until all of these uncircumcised Philistines are either dead or retreat from the battlefield.” (Fictionalized version of 2 Samuel 23:9-10 and 1 Chronicles 11:12-14)

…but the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action. (Daniel 11:32)

We Americans are very fortunate because we are not fighting ISIS and other Islamic Jihadists in our nation right now, but we will! In fact, you’d have to be blind as the…as the…average Christian not to see this war heading toward our malls, our streets, and our neighborhoods.

Yet, like I said, we’re fortunate because we have the time right now to build our faith and trust in God so we can pray and believe in our prayers.

Remember: it’s one thing to pray, but an entirely different matter to believe our prayers and then be willing to walk in them.

Today, I prayed:

Lord, I pray that You will give us American believers the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him so that the eyes of our hearts are enlightened to know what is the hope, the riches of His glorious inheritance, and the immeasurable greatness of His power toward us who believe. (Based on Ephesians 1:17-19)

What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?

  1. Larry, I just can’t HEP myself! I HAVE to share this video of US Marines singing, “Behold He comes! Riding on the clouds! When the trumpet sounds!” Yahooooo! MARINES SINGING “DAYS OF ELIJAH”

  2. Lift the Cross of Jesus,

    Wow! What a blessing to see, not just men, but Marines, singing this great song which came out of Northern Ireland. Thank you so much for blessing us all.

  3. Thank YOU Larry, for leading this band of bloggers toward fasting, prayer, and hearing heaven in these last days. I deeply respect Jesus in you.

  4. Lift the Cross of Jesus,

    Thanks. I appreciate your friendship. God bless you.

  5. Wow, Mr. Larry . . .what a powerful, powerful prayer He has given you for today! So thankful that we have time to build our faith and learn to believe our prayers. And wow to the video Hope brought too!
    You mentioned that we also need to build our trust in God, and that was what I was praying about from a little devotion in God Calling /October 23:

    “You must trust to the end. You must be ready to go on trusting to the last hour.
    You must know even when you cannot see . . .You must be ready, like My servant Abraham, to climb the very Hill of Sacrifice, to go to the very last moment, before you see My Deliverance.
    This final test has to come to all who walk by Faith. You must rely on Me alone.
    Look to no other arm; look for no other help. Trust in the Spirit Forces of the Unseen, not in those you see. Trust and fear not.”

    God bless you, Larry. One day you are going to hear and see all the ways God answered your prayers.

  6. Debbie,

    What a great bit of devotion from God Calling/October 23. I love that because it’s where we all need to go. Thanks. God bless you.

    PS. I am no different than most other people, in that I’d love to hear and see all the ways God has answered my prayers. Amen.
