Tuesday’s Prayers for America (11/18/2014)

Ferguson, Missouri, is a powder keg waiting for a spark to set it off. If that happens, many lives could be ruined or destroyed. When will we learn that we can’t win spiritual battles with acts of the flesh?

Today, I prayed:

Lord, I pray that Your spirit of wisdom and revelation will enlighten our understanding so that Satan does not take advantage of our emotions in Ferguson and other inner cities of America. Open our eyes to the power of forgiveness. (Based on Ephesians 1:17-18 and 2 Corinthians 2:10-11)

What do you think and did the Lord speak to you today?

Join with me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for America.

  1. It’s looking like the verdict is going to be in favor of Darren Wilson. I saw an interview last night that included the organizer for Michael Brown – who, like most of us, did not actually see the shooting. When asked if after the testimony of all the ones who did see the shooting lead the grand jury to a not guilty verdict – that justice was in favor of Darren Wilson – would they be ok with that. Of course the answer was “no”.

    It is unfortunate but, as I concluded a few months ago, a welfare mentality not only wants income without the discipline of labor, it also wants respect without the discipline of integrity.

    When will the leaders of the black community stop encouraging them to stay where they are and start empowering them to make better choices that will alter their life? Sharpton goes in a stirs them up. Where are the leaders that have made the hard choices and bettered themselves, giving them the right perspective to focus on – trying to calm them down.

    Had Darren Wilson did what they believe he did, the way they claim he did it, I would be all in on him getting what he deserved. But as I told a black friend of mine (who happens to be a hard worker and one who is making the hard choices to do right) I told him I didn’t believe I was prejudiced against blacks as much as I was prejudiced against people who didn’t work and against people who wore their jeans down below their butt.

    I think our praying needs to be that they would begin to hear a different message. Life is not easy. Those among them who know that to be true need to be more vocal to help them see it. Like my friend. He washes cars, mows lawns, delivers newspapers and does handy work. it’s not easy. It’s right.

    By the way – high Larry. How are you doing. 🙂

  2. Mike,

    Thanks for your input. I feel the black leaders are a lot like Moses who had a tried and true method for getting water out of the rock, but when the Lord gave him a new method, he couldn’t adjust. Israel then needed a Joshua to lead them the rest of the way into the Promised Land.

    The inner cities need a new Joshua generation of leaders.

    As for me, so far so good. I’m okay.

  3. Praying with you , Mr. Larry, and asking that eyes be opened that this is a spiritual battle, not a fleshly one. Forgiveness is so powerful.
    I prayed from Genesis yesterday, thinking about how The animals went into the ark, as “God had commanded Noah” . All kinds of things happen when we follow His commands. I sound like a broken record, but praying that we do what He tells us to do.
    God bless you!
    Good to see Mike here too! :).

  4. Debbie,

    Thanks. We need your “broken record” reminders to do what He says to do. God bless you.
