In these last days when things look so dismal, there is a promise of hope for God’s people. Let us pray and fast for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit. We are called to humble ourselves, seek God’s face and turn from our wicked ways, then God will forgive our sin and will heal our land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
WE PRAY FOR AN END TO THE KILLING OF THE UNBORN IN THE WOMB OF THEIR MOTHERS. THE KILLING OF THE UNBORN IS GENOCIDE IN THE WOMB. THESE ARE HUMAN BEINGS WHOSE LIVES AND WELL-BEING ARE DESERVING OF OUR URGENT ATTENTION AND MERCY.
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." Jeremiah 1:5
GOD INSTITUTED MARRRIAGE, NOT MAN. THE FIRST WEDDING HAPPENED IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN WHEN GOD WALKED EVE DOWN THE AISLES OF EDEN AND GAVE HER OVER TO ADAM.
The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” ..... Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib[h] he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
GOD INSTITUTED MARRIAGE AND HAS AN ORDER FOR IT. GOD COVERS THE MAN (HUSBAND), THE MAN COVERS THE WOMAN (WIFE) AND BOTH RAISE THE CHILDREN IN GOD'S WAYS.
" But I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God." 1 Corinthians 11:3
"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body.... For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
GOD COMMANDS US IN SCRIPTURE TO FORGIVE OTHERS SO THAT WE MAY ALSO BE FORGIVEN. MANY CHRISTIANS ARE NOT AWARE OF THE FACT THAT OUR FORGIVENESS OF OTHERS IS OUR TICKET TO GETTING FORGIVENESS FROM GOD.
"And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass
against us...... For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you."
WE CAN ALL AGREE THAT HEALING IS NEEDED IN OUR LAND. WE CONTINUE TO WITNESS UNPRECEDENTED LEVELS OF CORRUPTION AND BETRAYAL FROM OUR LEADERS. HOWEVER, WE ARE NOT WITHOUT GUILT OURSELVES, BECAUSE THE CHARACTER OF OUR LEADERS ARE A REFLECTION OF THE CHARACTER OF THE NATION AS A WHOLE.
"I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior…”
1 Timothy 2:1-3
THE BIBLE REMINDS US THAT WE HAVE AN INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY TO LIVE A HOLY AND ACCEPTABLE LIFE BEFORE GOD. GOD'S CALL IS A CALL TO HOLINESS FOR EVERY BELIEVER AND FOLLOWER.
" But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy." 1 Peter 1:15-16
"Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling."
PREPARE FOR FASTING!
