Prayers for America (4/19/2018)

Jerusalem has been destroyed at least twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times, and captured and recaptured 44 times. The city rests on one of the most hotly contested sites in the history of the world.

Many, including me, believe the original Garden of Eden was centered in Jerusalem. If this is true, the city has been undergoing spiritual warfare for 6000 years, ever since Adam and Eve walked in the Garden and Satan deceived them.

So, there’s no wonder why President Trump is undergoing such hatred by the media and his enemies. Trump was the first president to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and plans on moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14, 2018.

Like most of us, Trump is a flawed person, but God knew his frailties when He chose him to be president of America. I believe Trump’s strength is his stubborn determination to plow forward with his plans, including those for Jerusalem and Israel.

My prayer today:

Lord, raise up people who are willing to stand in the gap before You for President Trump and for Jerusalem during this time period. (Based on Ezekiel 22:30)

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

Prayers for LGBT Believers (4/17/2018)

The Judgment Seat of Christ is the place where all believers – one by one – will be judged by Jesus Christ to determine what we have done with our lives here on earth. If we have done good, we will receive rewards and good positions in the eternal kingdom.  But if we have done bad, we may end up with shame and loss, even though our eternal salvations are secure.

Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men… (2 Corinthians 5:11)

The Apostle Paul understood that the Judgment Seat of Christ was not a tea party with Jesus and the believer looking through photo albums, remembering birthday parties, family reunions, and so forth. It was a moment of immense fear of the Lord where our motives and purposes are revealed to the Judge.

There are no second chances at the Judgment Seat of Christ.

My prayer today:

Lord, I pray for the Holy Spirit to cloak LGBT believers with the fear of the Lord so that they may depart from every sin in their lives…and Lord do it in my life, too. (Based on Proverbs 16:6)

Prayers for America (4/10/2018)

What has caused the Palestinians to suddenly riot in the Gaza Strip?

And tensions could be much, much higher by May 15, as it will also be one day after the U.S. says it will have officially moved its embassy to Jerusalem — a Trump administration plan which has enraged Palestinians and effectively ended U.S. involvement in any peace process, though the State Department says the U.S. is “deeply saddened” by violence on Friday. (New York Magazine)

Although I pray for the violence to end and for Palestinian lives to be spared, I believe it is the will of God for America to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

So, we need to remember that nothing comes easy in the Middle East, especially for Israel.

My prayer today:

Lord, I pray that You encourage President Trump to hold the course on moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Prayers for LGBT Believers (4/10/2018)

 

“Son you have been deceived.”

This short message came to me after praying for hours in the early morning of July 8, 1994. I knelt on the floor next to my bed in an upstairs bedroom of my two-bedroom townhouse apartment in Ames, Iowa.

The words were not the ones I longed to hear from the Lord at that particular moment. I hoped to hear about a miraculous deliverance, much like the Lone Ranger arriving on his white stallion, Silver, with the U. S. Cavalry riding alongside.

Those five words could have just as well been etched on my gravestone. They ripped my life to shreds. My prophetic calling, ministry, and finances died right then and there. Rigor mortis settled upon my dreams as I knelt on the carpet.

“Lord, I never wanted to be in this battle,” I said through sobs, not knowing what else to say. “The only thing I know for sure right now is You love me and Your grace is unending and sufficient, even for a loser like me. This means at some time in the future, You will deliver me out of this mess, but until then, I’ll learn how to lean on Your grace even more than I do now.”

Let me tell you, twenty-four years is a long time, especially when you consider I was forty-eight years old and physically strong on that morning. I’m now seventy-two years old. My youth has long since passed me by, along with the move of God I was a part of back then. All are forgotten yesterdays to most people, but not to me.

If the Apostle Peter’s worst day occurred when he denied Jesus three times, then this was my all-time worst day. Every bad day since then has been, at best, a little speed bump on the road of life compared to that day.

(Excerpt from The Hunt for Larry Who by Larry Nevenhoven, © 2014, Amazon eBook)

Cold shivers still run down my spine when I think about the Lord saying, “Son, you have been deceived.”

Yet at the same time, I praise God that my deception was unmasked before I stood face-to-face with Jesus at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Deceptions handled in my life here on earth are stepping stones to greater revelations of Jesus’ love and grace, ones that make me love Him even more.

But deceptions uncovered at the Judgment Seat will result in loss of rewards and position in the Millennial Kingdom and throughout eternity. Although the Lord would wipe away my tears of shame, I don’t want to ever hear Him say those words to me again.

My prayer today:

Lord, send Your light and truth to every LGBT believer, leading them to a life of holiness in You. (Based on Psalms 43:3)

Prayers for our Schools (4/3/2018)

None of us know the day and hour that the Lord will return, but it’s possible that the children who are attending school right now could be a part of the generation who will see Jesus return.

My prayer today:

Lord, reveal Yourself to today’s school children so they will know You and be strong so they can carry out great exploits in Your name. (Based on Daniel 11:32)

Prayers for America (3/29/2018)

 

Americans love the Bible, but they don’t read it very much. That’s the findings in the latest Barna State of the Bible 2017 report.

Barna used phone interviews and online surveys to learn that only one in five Americans open their Bibles at least four times per week. Pretty sad, right?

My prayer today:

Lord, stir up our American hearts to be like the Bereans so that we examine the Scriptures daily to learn the truth. (Based on Acts 17:10-11

Prayers for our Schools (3/27/2018)

It’s sad that politicians and political agenda organizations used high school kids as pawns in the recent “March for Our Lives.”

There’s nothing wrong with voicing your dissent, but this was planned months ahead of time by political groups. They just waited for the perfect school calamity to occur. And Parkland fit their agendas.

My prayer today:

Lord, raise up young Davids in our nation’s local schools and arm them to fight against the Goliaths of America in the name of the Lord God of Hosts. (Based on 1 Samuel 17:45)

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