We Can't Look the Other Way

text size A A A

In the face of increased terrorism threats, our hearts feel heavy with a burden to pray hard for Jewish people, Christian people, our country, etc. We shake our heads as we consider the utter failure of our current Administration, which keenly evidences itself in Obama's inaction about ISIS. Thousands of people have been slaughtered and little has been done to stop them.

Obama's inaction is action. We struggle to believe that the manner with which his policies have shrunk our military, dishonored veterans, and lowered our national defense could be anything shy of either incompetence or sheer anti-Americanism. Regardless, we're in a position that only lends itself to prayer. Passionate prayer.

Last month, when we appeared on Fox News again, we discussed ways to encourage our military. Today, we do the same but with a different emphasis: Please, please pray for our military men and women. Pray for all who are targeted by evil. Pray for the Jewish people, who are emigrating from Europe at the highest rates since the terrorism of the Nazi's in WWII. With the increased pressure and threats from ISIS/ISIL, we must do our duty as prayer warriors to ask the Lord to protect our nation's warriors, for all persecuted peoples, and for ourselves.

Thank you in advance for joining us on the prayer frontlines. Will you please pray with me now? "Heavenly Father, we thank You that You are good, faithful, merciful, and loving. Contrary to our enemies, we pray for peace. We pray for You to draw all to Yourself...that all may know Jesus, Your Son, and His love, peace, hope, and salvation. Please cleanse our nation from our sin. Draw us close to You both individually as citizens and collectively as a nation. We need You. We need Your grace and mercy to surround our troops and their families. Please protect us. In the Name of Jesus, Amen."

We'll close with this Scripture, which remains as powerful and true as ever:

"If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land." (II Chronicles 7:14, AMP)God bless,
