Lord Jesus, fill me with the wisdom of Your Word as You us me to write a prayer for the release of Self-seeking satisfaction. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen

If you want to be a friend of God, make a choice to live for Him intimately and in obedience from His Word.

A Prayer for reconciliation to The Lord:
Father I pray that our days are always putting You first, before any thought, action or deed. May our days be not spent on self satisfaction to the point of our numbness to the cares of others. We live in a spoiled nation that is well cared for with few needs, and instead of praising You for the abundance, we have grown greedy for more of everything. Most of which will decay over the ages, but what will happen from our self-seeking desires that could have been used to seek You and Your plan for our lives to enrich Your Kingdom? What penalty will we pay for mismanaging what was Yours that You so graciously placed in our hands? Forgive us as we have spent precious time and money on the needless, instead of the needy. Help us remember the least of these and those who need to hear of Your Good News.

Matthew 26:41
"Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak."

Romans 8:26-27
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And He Who searches our hearts knows the Mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.

2 Chronicles 6:14
He said: "O Lord, God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven or on earth--You who keep your covenant of love with Your servants who continue wholeheartedly in Your way.

2 Chronicles 30:9
If you return to the Lord, then your brothers and your children will be shown compassion by their captors and will come back to this land, for the Lord is gracious and compassionate he will not turn His face from you if you return to Him.

My Savior, release us from the sin of self-seeking satisfaction. We are weak by all the allurement that leads us to cross the boundaries You have given us. We need Your strength.

Father, I ask for forgiveness in our self-centeredness. We are unworthy of Your presence, but I ask for a another chance to live by Your laws.

Lord, the stronghold of evil has over whelmed our Nation and in intercessory prayer I seek Your Almighty Power to wash over us all and release us from this sin of selfishness.

I pray Your grace leads us to repentance for being unrighteous and uncaring to our fellow man. Forgive us who have used people for personal interests and benefits.

May You show Your mercy on our souls and be gentle in Your discipline.

With all my heart, mind, soul and strength I come to You and ask for Your mercy and cleansing flow to wash across this free land. May we be as holy and blameless in Your sight as You created us to be. We need the deliverance that only Your Son, Jesus Christ, can provide, for America failing You.

Jesus, You say that You will bend down to listen to our prayers. I am grateful for Your unfailing love. Fill us with the Holy Spirit and be our shield against evil. Give us wisdom and the determination to do Your will.

Christ, I realize we error in so many of Your ways, but please give us the understanding that You have a plan for us, so that we would not live according to our own plan. Direct our steps and renew our minds to think like Your Son, Jesus Christ. May we walk in love for humanity and lend a hand to those in need.

Psalm 119:34-36
Give me understanding and I will keep Your law and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of Your commands, for there I find delight. Turn my heart toward Your statutes and not toward selfish gain.

Lord, I trust in You for deliverance so we can live for Your goal. My Praises are sung to You, my King of Victory! Thank You Jesus! I pray in the name of Christ, You are our hope and I trust forever! Amen.

Jesus, You always amaze me of Your powerful inspiration. I pray that this offers hope to Your children in need. Lord, fill their weakness with Your strength and Your will. Protect us all from the stronghold of Satan.

Thank You Jesus for filling my heart with Your love and the opportunity to minister to my neighbors throughout America.!

I love and worship You Jesus,
Nicole

There is a mission field out there for all followers of Christ and we are told to go now, write it on a tablet for them to understand the Truth of God, inscribe it on a scroll, that for the days to come it may be an everlasting witness.

Written by Nicole Brierly under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit: to send this out for a 7 day prayer under the instruction of the Lord. ...May your hearts be prepared to pray under the influence of the Holy Spirit...

America has lost their core desire to know The Truth, but to live instead in the shadows of death.

Do you hear the same warnings from our Sovereign God that evil is rising up to destroy what was once blessed in His sight? Why is America allowing Satan to take God out of this land? If God is not with us, we will not be The Land of The Free!!!

What should we bring to the Table of the Lord? An open heart ready to receive all Heavenly blessing from His Son!

Meanwhile in preparation for our feasting, Ask, Seek and Knock for God's Spiritual insight and wisdom, and wait on the Arm of the Lord's leading, so we don't stumble over our feet, due to our rushing to do it the world's way!

Oh Lord, may we follow You according to Your will, so that we do not overshadow Your Glorious Lamp that You so graciously place unto our feet, that we might not stumble in the shadow of darkness that we cast by our own disobedience of going ahead of Your mission and there by delaying the purpose You had prepared in this day! Father God, lead us in this Seven Day Prayer according to Your Sovereign will and show us who might join us in this important task of trusting You to guide our hearts and wills to service. Allow the Power of Your Spirit to move through these seven days to thwart the course of evil that plans to come against America. In Jesus Name, Amen.

...May your hearts be prepared to pray under the influence of the Holy Spirit...

Indwelling Spirit = IS = Immanuel Inside!

~Jesus Christ's Spirit breathes out to us from the Holy Bible with a pleasant and sweet smelling aroma teaching us that He IS the One Who intercedes for us, but we have responsibilities that are written out to us commanding simply that we A.S.K. with a yielded heart unto Our Sovereign King. As we devote ourselves in sweet surrender and obedience to His Word, He IS our Quietness and Rest. He teaches us to be still as a bride waiting for her Bridegroom to prepare us with His indwelling wisdom and His given assurance that our Redeemer IS God and He IS with us!~

Has America forgotten our First Love?

Psalm 88:1
O LORD, the God of my salvation, I have cried out by day and in the night before You. Lord have mercy on our nation and shed Your grace on thee! Draw the American hearts once again to You! In Jesus Name, Amen!

Day 3:
One Nation under God Has America forgotten our First Love?

Psalm 88:1
O LORD, the God of my salvation, I have cried out by day and in the night before You.

His Indwelling Spirit = HIS

HIS IS the Gift that keeps giving!

Lord lead me to what You want Your people to know for this day. In God I Trust that You will give me the mind of Christ, the tongue of a disciple and the hands to write heeding and healing words for Americans to ponder in their hearts! God, Your Holiness brings me to my knees as I prepare myself before Your Throne with a repentant and fervent heart and I ask that all that is written in this 7 Day prayer would be by Your guiding hand upon mine and the remnant who follow this mission of requesting Your Hand to have mercy of this backslidden land that was once beautiful in Your sight. Only by Your Mighty Right Hand upon our hearts, mind and spirit will we be strong and bright enough to express Your Glorious Majesty before this blind and deaf America, who by their own choice have unfortunately turned their eyes away from Your joyful peace and what You called to be America's pursuit for happiness. Jesus make me one of Your lampstands and make me seven times brighter, make me Your light seven full days, and let me help You bring Your Good News across the internet.

Galatians 1:10
For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

Father God, You have caused Your people to rejoice even in weakness so that Christ's power may rest on us. Shepherd, by perfecting our faith You have taught us to A.S.K.! My Lord and Savior, I ask to be used as one of Your many chosen lights that will shine forth in the United States of America as I participate cooperatively in this devoted prayer with the saints that have also prepared their hearts by lifting their concerns to Your Throne! Immanuel, Your Spirit lives in Your Altar and Temple, which by Your Sovereign Grace has been placed in me too! Thank You for Your Indwelling Spirit! My Savior I weep deep within my soul as I see our "America the Beautiful" fall into the hands of evil and all its deceitful motives to seek and destroy. Lord I plead You, please lift the veil from the American eyes and give them the desire to read Your Word, so all American hearts would be enlightened to Your marvelous Truth and the Freedom You provide! Lord You are the Savior that binds up the bruises of Your people and You are the Physician that heals the wounds of the afflicted. God, You are our Justice and Your Truths are Yes and Amen. May the people of America look to You again with a mournful repentant heart as they search their souls and once again seek Your Saving Son. I pray to You with all my heart that there would be a means for everyone to hear The Good News of the Gospel. Please place before each American an Ambassador of Christ. Lord I ask for Spiritual, Christ centered leaders to rise up and follow their calling. There are many people Father God who have not seen or heard of Your Son, Jesus Christ or of HIS Saving Truth. Oh God, have mercy and shed Your Grace on thee. I plead You, our Redeemer; show America the Way, while providing for them the means to embrace Your Holy Word once again. May our hearts be burdened by the Saving Power of Your Spirit Breathed Infallible Word. I ask that all would see themselves as You do and recognize You are The Only Cure! Oh, Holy One of Israel let Your people go from the evil bondage that keeps them low! I pray the minds and eyes of America would understand The Holy Bible so they could once again see The Beauty of Freedom. In the Messiah's name I pray. Amen.

Galatians 1:6-7
I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

Who are you relying on to lead you to receiving the Pursuit of Happiness?

John 11:35
Jesus wept.

The Gospel is only beneficial if we receive it and stand upon it! I pray the Christians of America would pledge their vows of allegiance to God and share The Good News of THE HOPE IN WHICH WE STAND! May we all be the People of The Way!

Day 4:
America the Beautiful

...May your hearts be prepared to pray under the influence of the Holy Spirit...

Who are you relying on to lead you to receiving the Pursuit of Happiness? God warns us of the danger of apostasy, deception and false teaching...

1 Timothy 4:1-2
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.

Wake up all who slumber and seek ye the way of the Lord. Let the Lord be the Light to this nation! Please share this absolutely necessary prayer!

Romans 13:11 And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our Salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.

Isaiah 30:20
Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them.

A question and warning to ponder seriously while there is still time: Why and who are you voting for America? Who will be elected as a godly leader of this God given nation? Where is America heading? Who is America seeking?

In the Holy Bible we learn that the Lord longs to be gracious to us; God rises to show us compassion. Our Creator IS a God of justice. God makes it known to us that blessed are all who first wait on Him as Leader, as Provider and the Way. Set apart are all who look first to the One Who IS our Lampstand in a dark and dreary land! It IS God, Who has and Who IS the One Who intercedes and brings Salvation for us, if only we would hear His beckoning and see His Truth that IS laid out for us in the Holy Scriptures. Man can do nothing on his own; we need the help of our Supplier! We need to depend on Who IS Faithful and True! I encourage you to pray as God commands. A.S.K. with a yielded heart unto our Sovereign King...He IS our Quietness and Rest as we devote ourselves in sweet surrender and obedience to His Word. The Lord desires us to be still and to know He IS God. The Potter provides His Indwelling Spirit of wisdom and assurance to all who would ever receive HIS gift of Salvation. The gift that not only promises us Eternal Life, but the salvation from all evil that comes against us every day!

America our Redeemer IS Christ. Let's bring God back to our land, church, home, schools, and government!

Lord, hear our individual prayers today as we lift them on High and await Your Saving Grace to meet the rebellious souls that plague our nation today. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Day 5:
Share as the Lord leads this prayer for our potential future leaders of America.

Jer 3:33
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

...May your hearts be prepared to pray under the influence of the Holy Spirit...

In Isaiah 30, "Woe to the obstinate children," declares the Lord, "to those who carry out plans that are not Mine, forming an alliance, but not by My Spirit, heaping sin upon sin."

America looks for earthly help without consulting God, resulting in a desperate fight of evil versus evil. God says man's protection will be our shame. That God IS our resource. It would benefit us to pay attention to the Truth of Apostle Paul as he writes in God's Word, in Philippians 3:10-11 4:13 I can do everything through Him who gives me strength. I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings, becoming like Him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.

Mankind's endeavors to fight life's evil battles with human made protective armor alone will fail in comparison to the Might Armor of God as explained in Ephesians 6! Man's security will bring us disgrace, because mankind is described as not so kind in character and fails time after time under the jurisdiction of their own natural ways of duty. Our wisdom is futile without the Holy Spirit. The Bible goes on to explain how humanity alone can bring neither help nor add benefit, but only shame and disgrace. These are Words of our Designer. We are to function in the Light of Christ as He planned. In Ephesians 2 you will read, as for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do... remember that at that time you were separate from Christ... foreigners to the Covenants of the Promise, without Hope and without God in the world.

Isaiah 30 continues saying that a land of hardship and distress are caused by man's views, leaders, messengers and that our news brings only earthly riches. They forget that God clearly provided these treasures for our understanding that HE IS GOD! Man takes the riches that God provided and makes them utterly useless as wood, hay and stubble. Thus being a warning to us that if we don't use what was provided for God's Divine plan for humanity, then mankind will be the demise of this great land we call America the Beautiful. How shameful we must appear, before our Holy God for being so neglectful as to only search after the things that are seen with such greedy and blinded eyes of what has been foretold. This nation is seeking to please the desires of humanity, without honoring the Provider of all first! We blatantly disobey and reject the wisdom of God, Who so lovingly desires the best for us. This is embarrassing, to say the least. No wonder God calls us sheep in the wilderness, who wonder around without noticing the Glory of the Lord that should be so apparent all around us. How can we find joy in a self-seeking lifestyle? It is so clear, if only we would stop and think. It is our own fault we fall into disparity when we don't follow after Jesus by
Asking, Seeking and Knocking on our Heavenly King's door. We are a Do-Nothing, useless group of people living simply to destroy our destiny...and the worst of it is that America doesn't seem to see it or is in denial of the consequences of our choices. There is a mission field out there brothers and sisters in Christ and we are told to go now, write it on a tablet for them, inscribe it on a scroll, that for the days to come it may be an everlasting witness. These are rebellious people, deceitful children, children unwilling to listen to the Lord's instruction. They say to the seers "See no more visions!" and to the prophets, "Give us no more visions of what is right!

America, could God be warning us in His Word about our future PRESIDENT? Our Heavenly Father warns us of American ministers, forecasters, and interpreters who tell stories of what is seen and falsely broadcast the lies that are not of what God has foretold in Scripture. Are we stirred to vote by our finite and worse yet falsified views? Is that how we elect our Leaders of America? Those who tell us pleasant things, prophesy illusions. The land's desire no longer wants to know the Truth, but to live in the shadows of death. God's Word says man wants to walk away, that we want to get off His path of morality, and worse yet to stop living with and for our Creator. Our First Love Who longs to be united in the Spirit of Love and Truth with His creation. How absurd, every time we rebel against God's plan and purpose for our lives and instead seek after our own selfish demands, we keep on stumbling in the dark, because God has taken away His Lampstand! Our Potter says: "Because you have rejected this message, relied on oppression and depended on deceit, this sin will become for you like a high wall, cracked and bulging, that collapses suddenly, in an instant. It will break in pieces like pottery, shattered so mercilessly that among its pieces not a fragment will be found for taking coals from a hearth or scooping water out of a cistern."

WOW, America that is our warning! Jesus Christ, Who's Spirit breathes out to us from the Holy Bible with a pleasant an sweet smelling aroma teaches us that He IS the One Who intercedes for us, but we have responsibilities that are written out to us commanding simply that we A.S.K. with a yielded heart unto Our Sovereign King...He IS our Quietness and Rest, when we devote ourselves in sweet surrender and obedience to His Word. He teaches us to be still as a bride waiting for her Bridegroom to prepare us with His Indwelling wisdom and His given assurance that our Redeemer IS God and He IS with us!

Father God, have mercy on us. Our desires have fallen so short of Your Glory. Renew and restore what has been stolen as You lead us into Your Throne Room for fellowship and prayer by the Power of Your Holy Spirit. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Day 6:

Eph 1:3
Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly [places] in Christ.

Lord we thank You for all that you have already blessed us with, and now in this day forward may we be a blessing to You, in all that we say and do for Your Name sake. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Why do we decide what is best for us, when God has already given us the Way we should be living. Why does man think he can outwit the Creator of all, by removing His standards for our living the good life? Why do we allow man to change the order of God's plan for us? If we remove His Word from our lives, certainly He will remove our names from His Book of Life! What are the leaders of America doing to prepare us for the future? What are their principles for life? What are the motives behind their words? On what foundation are they building for America to rest on?

A question and warning to ponder seriously while there is still time: Why and who are you voting for America? Who will be elected as a godly leader of this God given nation? Where is America heading? Who is America seeking?

America has lost their core desire to know The Truth, but to live instead in the shadows of death.

Hosea 10:12
Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, until he comes and showers righteousness on you.

There will come a day when the Judgment of God will fall upon the earth and because of our falling away from the commands of the Lord on our lives, no leader or lay person will be able to lead us out of the trouble we have heaped upon our own heads. God gave us rules to live by for our benefit, but we choose to transgress and consequently we will fall to the punishment of our Creator! We were not created to be "me centered," but "God centered"!

Isaiah 24:1-3
See, the Lord is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it; He will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants—it will be the same for priest as for people, for master as for servant, for mistress as for maid, for seller as for buyer, for borrower as for lender, for debtor as for creditor. The earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. The Lord has spoken this Word.

There is a consequence for every decision we make. Our rebellion has led to the disorder of God's ultimate plan for our lives.

Heavenly Father and Ruler over our hearts, make room for our willingness to be used to bring the Truth of Your Word to this forsaken land. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Romans 1:22, 28, 31-32
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient. Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Job 4:3, 5, 8-9
Think how you have instructed many, how you have strengthened feeble hands. But now trouble comes to you, and you are discouraged; it strikes you, and you are dismayed. As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it. At the breath of God they are destroyed; at the blast of His anger they perish.

Gal 6:7-8
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Psalm 7:15
He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch [which] he made.

Revelation 6:17
For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? 20:11-15 And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the Book] of Life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the Books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

Hebrews 13:13-18, 20-21, 25
Let us go forth therefore unto Him without the camp, bearing His reproach. For here have we no continuing city, but we seek One to Come. By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of [our] lips giving thanks to His name. To do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that [is] unprofitable for you. Pray for us: for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly...Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom [be] glory forever and ever. Amen. Grace [be] with you all. Amen.

If the Lord leads you to forward please do it. Prayer avails much!

Day 7:
John 10:1
"I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the Gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. 2 The man who enters by the Gate is the shepherd of his sheep 3 The watchman opens the Gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 7 Therefore Jesus said again, "I tell you the truth, I AM the Gate for the sheep.

Hebrews 13:14-17, 20-21
For here we do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking {the city} which is to come. Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name. And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Obey your leaders and submit {to them,} for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you. Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, {even} Jesus our Lord, equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom {be} the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Prayer for America... In repentance and Rest is your Salvation, in Quietness and trust is your Strength. - How gracious He will be when you cry for help! As soon as He hears, He will answer you.

American people are building a secular city today, but God is building a City on His Holy Hill for those people who have kept the Foundational Truths of Old. May we pray for America to stop resisting the Embrace of God's personal care! Our hearts are restless without HOPE!

2 Cor 10:3-4
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.

Our Prayers of Faith using the sword of the Spirit, the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of the gospel, the shield of faith and the helmet of salvation are the weapons of the Christians to fight the evil foe. Remember where there is righteousness, there is conflict.

2 Cor 10:3-4
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.

Let us not fight the way the world does with deception, manipulation or with empty words, but let's fight with Words of Worth as we walk in Truth having already put on the Full Armor of God. I am assured if we put on Christ we will not be out maneuvered by evil's intentions, because Jesus is our Savior and King. The Bible says what evil meant for our harm, God meant it for our good! (Gen 50:20) So let us renew our minds and not be led by the carnality of what the world view is or its appealing entertainment that fills us with temptations. (Romans 12:2)

Jer. 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Psalm 111:2
Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them.

Continuing in Isaiah 30:15-33, this is His wonderful and blessed Word! This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: "In repentance and Rest is your Salvation, in Quietness and trust is your Strength (Who IS God), but you would have none of it. You said, 'No, we will flee on horses.' Therefore you will flee! You said, 'We will ride off on swift horses.' (America is running away from God's embrace as fast as she can.) Therefore your pursuers will be swift! A thousand will flee at the threat of one; at the threat of five you will all flee away, till you are left like a flagstaff on a mountaintop, like a banner on a hill." Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; He rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for Him! O people of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious He will be when you cry for help! As soon as He hears, He will answer you. Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a Voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it." Then you will defile your idols overlaid with silver and your images covered with gold; you will throw them away like a menstrual cloth and say to them, "Away with you!" He will also send you rain for the seed you sow in the ground, and the food that comes from the land will be rich and plentiful. In that day your cattle will graze in broad meadows. The oxen and donkeys that work the soil will eat fodder and mash, spread out with fork and shovel. In the day of great slaughter, when the towers fall, streams of water will flow on every high mountain and every lofty hill. The moon will shine like the sun, and the sunlight will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven full days, when the Lord binds up the bruises of his people and heals the wounds he inflicted. See, the Name of the Lord comes from afar, with burning anger and dense clouds of smoke; His lips are full of wrath, and His tongue IS a consuming fire. His breath IS like a rushing torrent, rising up to the neck. He shakes the nations in the sieve of destruction; He places in the jaws of the peoples a bit that leads them astray. And you will sing as on the night you celebrate a holy festival; your hearts will rejoice as when people go up with flutes to the mountain of the Lord, to the Rock of Israel. The Lord will cause men to hear His majestic voice and will make them see His arm coming down with raging anger and consuming fire, with cloudburst, thunderstorm and hail. The voice of the Lord will shatter Assyria; with His scepter He will strike them down. Every stroke the Lord lays on them with His punishing rod will be to the music of tambourines and harps, as He fights them in battle with the blows of His arm. Topheth has long been prepared; it has been made ready for the King. Its fire pit has been made deep and wide, with an abundance of fire and wood; the Breath of the Lord, like a stream of burning sulfur, sets it ablaze.

Oh, the Hope we have in Jesus! America, lift your eyes once again unto the Lord and get your head out of the shifting sand, for time is wasting away in the hour glass of humanity, only for the evil one to steal away from you, all that the Lord God of Heaven worked so hard to prepare for you! God is a God of many chances, but He does have a limit...remember the ways of God are Yes and Amen and all evil was finished on the Cross at Calvary! The day of the Lord is nearer than it was a moment ago!

2 Ch 34
Because your heart was responsive and you humbled yourself before God when you heard what He spoke against this place and its people, and because you humbled yourself before Me and tore your robes and wept in My presence, I have heard you, declares the Lord. ...Then the King (Leader of the people) went up to the temple of the Lord with the men ..., the priests ...all the people from the least to the greatest. He read in their hearing all the words of the Book of the Covenant, which had been found in the temple of the Lord. The king stood by his pillar and renewed the covenant in the presence of the Lord—to follow the Lord and keep his commands, regulations and decrees with all his heart and all his soul, and to obey the Words of the Covenant written in this Book....they did not fail to follow the Lord, the God of their fathers.

Psalm 31:7
I will be glad and rejoice in Your love, for You saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul.

Lord, teach us, in every circumstance, to make Your will our own; and when the sense of joy departs, may we live by faith alone.
Glory to God,
