Every day in 2021 should be Father’s Day.

We wonder why our schools, grocery stores, and malls have become shooting ranges.

Americans are angry and frustrated. Does this excuse this type of horrendous activity? No, not at all. 

At this very minute, our economy is failing, and our streets are unsafe.

And now it is okay, according to some, to take that anger and doll it out on the innocent.

When did we lose control of our civility? Where was it that we took a wrong turn?

Was it the removal of God and prayer from our schools? Perhaps, it was the introduction of social media to our society and our youth. 

Maybe, it was the increase in the murder of innocent babies at our local abortion clinics. 

Could it be when other people decided that more skin, sex, violence, and cursing were okay for younger and younger audiences to view on television or in movies? Was this the catalyst that started the demise of our civility?

Perhaps, even the introduction of more and more broken homes with absent fathers leaving mothers to take up the slack.

Was it when others decided it was best for both parents to have to work? Was the need for a two-income family that pushed our society to the beginning of our demise?

Maybe, just maybe, it was the culmination of several of these things.

We may never know the one single event that caused the beginning of the fall of our society, but there is one thing we must realize and understand that is true.

Our enemy wants and desires the destruction of the family unit. 

He wants men to be weak, frail, afraid, and timid. 

Why does he want this? Well, the father is the head of the family. He is the leader of the family. He is the one who leads his family to success. 

He is the strength. He shows his sons how to become successful, strong, and productive men that will lead their future families down the same path. 

The father is the one who shows their daughters what a strong, faithful, honest, and unwavering man looks like. 

He sets the stage for his daughters to seek out future husbands with the same qualities. 

The father shows his daughters that they are worthy of respect and dignity. 

Yes, the father is the substantial leader that every family needs. 

As I write about the importance of the father, I am in no way undermining the value of the mother in the family unit.

Also, I am not saying that the father is more important than the mother either. 

Each is equally important. The mother and the father play vital roles in the family unit. They are equal partners in every family unit.  

So here we are, where we see others trying to silence men. 

The father’s removal from the family picture leads to the reduction of strength, dignity, respect of the family. 

You have to understand that the family unit is powerful. They support each other, they love each other, and most importantly, they pray together. 

God’s word says that were two or more gather in agreement, He is among them (Matt18:19-20). 

The family praying in unison and agreement is a powerful thing. The enemy knows that.  

This family praying and agreeing can cause significant shifts in their lives, in the lives of their immediate family members, changes in their extended families, shifts in their schools, their communities, their cities, and their states.  

Their persistent, fervent, and effectual prayer will shake and cause mountains to move. 

The family unit prayer together in agreement has pure power.

That is why there is such a fight going on to destroy the family and the father.

Right now, we must start coming back together as family units and pray in agreement. 

Right this very moment, we are in contention with that demonic activity. 

Please make no mistake about what we are facing. 

This “new world order” is nothing more than demonic activity. 

We are fighting to preserve our freedom, voices, opinions, and way of life we love. We are fighting against the demonic activity of those who think they can defeat almighty God. 

We must combat this demonic activity with God, praying, fasting, and planting seeds in good soil. 

Please remember that no demon or devil can stand up to God and to the most potent name of them all, which is the name of Jesus. 

The blood of Jesus will never lose its power!

Amen!

We cannot lose focus or our hope. We cannot give up because that is what the enemy wants. 

God is not finished! We must keep praying and seeking God’s help to stop those determined to let the enemy take over. 

Stay focused, stay determined, stay active, and keep your eyes on God.

Gather, agree, pray, and watch God move!

 

blur-pray-word-power-of-prayer-529763590.jpg

God provides us many weapons for our daily spiritual battles.
Prayer is one of those weapons. It puts you in alignment with the will of God.
Your prayer puts God in charge of the situations you are facing and permits Him to move in those specific situations.
Remember, if one can put one thousand to flight, two can put 10,000 to flight.
The combined, agreed, fervent, and unceasing prayer is pure POWER.
When we join together in prayer, Jesus is always with us. His presence gives our prayer a supernatural boost.
Never doubt the power of your prayer and never give up on your prayers! Pray without ceasing.
We something think that if God doesn’t answer our prayers right away that He isn’t listening or perhaps that He forgot about us.
God always hears you! He will move on your behalf!
Remember that God moves in His own time. We cannot rush Him.

Hoax of hate.

blur-pray-word-power-of-prayer-529763590.jpg

Recently, we all had a hoax perpetrated on us. We were all made to believe that an act of ugliness and hate conducted on a well-known public figure.
With so much emphasis being placed on hate racism these days, why would someone want to bring attention so much attention to it in such a negative way?
We were made to believe that two men with so much anger and hate in their hearts beat, verbally abused, poured bleach onto, and placed a symbol of the worst despicable acts of terror and violence around this man’s neck.
Now, we have found out by so much evidence pointing to the actual truth that this whole ordeal was planned out to trick everyone.
Why would someone purposely create a story of such a viciously attack?
An act of this type of selfishness has hurt and angered so many people as it prevented those who genuinely need the help of the Chicago police dept. from attaining that much-needed help.
So many resources were soaked up for this fake crime.
Some in the media, some politicians, and some in Hollywood exacerbated this incident.
The flames of hate were fanned by their words that spat more hate, anger, and division before they even knew that whole truth.
So many have fought to eradicate hate, bigotry, and racism.
Some who fought paid the ultimate price to end racism. They gave their lives to ensure equality is accessible to each of us.
Now, here we are watching this alleged hoax play out. What a disgrace!
Maybe this act of selfishness can make us all realize that racism, bigotry, and hate need to come to an end. Perhaps now we can all see some truth to the agendas of the some in the media and some politicians.
Maybe now we can all see that grouping certain people together and calling them racist is a ridiculous thing.
No one but God knows the what is in the hearts of each of us.
To group people just because of the way they voted is nonsense.
To say every person in this group is hateful and racist is just plain silly and hurtful.
None of us know why people vote the way that they do. Again, to say you know a person’s heart without ever meeting that person is just plain silly.
Now, I hope we have all learned a valuable lesson.
We MUST wait until we have all the facts before we start speaking our opinion and we should never pass judgment on others.
We can’t heal our past if we keep dragging it behind us. We have to let it go if we are ever going to be repaired.
Drugging up the past and picking our wounds will never allow healing.
Even though we are hurt and frustrated, we will eventually have to forgive and move past this act of selfishness.
Let’s pray for God to heal the heart of this person that caused this whole alleged hoax. We pray that he will finally admit to the truth.
We need to continue to pray for America. She needs Gods forgiveness!
We need to pray that God will open the eyes of this young man and use this mess he purposely created and turn into a message of healing!

Father, hear our prayers for our families.

prayer-in-wood-9.16.17WP

Our families are under spiritual attack. God is a God of order, and He honors the hierarchy of the family.
Husbands hold the lead position and guide the family to and through the will of God. The wife is the partner of the husband. She holds a unique key to cry out to God in prayer for all the members of her family. I believe that many women are prayer warriors. It is something about the sheer compassion that women hold in their hearts. Not wanting their family to suffer, women cry out to God with fierce compassion. Women want only the very best for their family.
The children too are helpers in prayer etc. to bring the things of God to pass in all their lives.
The family unit in prayer has power! God’s word tells us this. “When two or three come together in agreement in My name, I am with them”(Matt18:20). There is POWER in the unified prayer of a family.

If your family does not take part in the unity of prayer (yet), pray with another wife/mother you know.  Two women who are also wives/mothers praying together is very powerful!
The enemy knows this too. He has been working hard to destroy the family using drugs, additions, pornography, loneliness, sadness, emptiness, and insecurities, etc.
Drugs are pouring into our nation. Now, right around the corner, the legalization of marijuana.  These drugs continue to steal the futures of family members.

Child sex traffickers are aiming to sexually abuse children who might one day become part of a loving, supportive family via adoption. Sexual abuse is a hard hurdle to overcome for any person. For this person, the thought of a loving God may be something they never accept thanks to sexual abuse.
The economy is another factor that robs the family. Women are less likely to marry a man if he has no job or makes very little money. Since marriage isn’t a choice in these instances, more women choose to give birth out of wedlock thus breaking the family unit.

Drowning in debt, young college graduates cannot afford to get married and start a family thus delaying or even totally preventing the a family from ever beginning.

Suicide is also on the rise. It is stealing the lives of teens, mothers, and fathers.
All of these issues that are tearing the family unit apart all seem so overwhelming. You may think about all this and say it is too much to handle for just one person. But our role is not to control or tackle it. Our job is to pray about it!
I have included some links for websites that help guide you in the specific prayers for your family. You can also search for sites yourself.
Don’t forget to pray for the protection of the minds and spirits of our children. Constantly bombarded with ideas, our children are under spiritual attack all day and night. They are faced with suggestions and ideas from their friends, the internet, social media, etc.
When you use these prayers, use the bible verses listed. When God hears us verbally reminding Him of His word, He has to respond! His unbreakable word will NEVER fail! His word is His promise!
Also, try making God’s word personal to your family. Replace any names listed in verses (like David, Moses, etc.) or any pronoun with the names of your family members.
Here is an example. In this example, we will say that the family member names are John, the husband, Sally, the wife, and Michelle, child.
Here is the verse I will use as my example as Sally is in prayer for her family: We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:8-9
When Sally is praying, here is what she will say to personalize this verse to her family: Father, Your word says in 2 Cor 4:8-9 that John, Michelle and I are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; John, Michelle and I are perplexed, but never in despair; persecuted, but never forsaken; struck down, but never destroyed.”
Personalizing God’s words to accommodate your family will bring even more power to these verses. I have found that it brings me faster into God’s presence. Once, there, I feel the glory of His power more intensely.
Also, let God know, via your prayers that you even come in agreement with every family that is also praying for their own families protection, restoration, unity, etc.
Speak to God via your prayer as a very close friend. Prayer does not have to fancy. In my experience, I have found myself in God’s presence quickly just by using three simple words: “God, help me!” Followed next by, “Father, I don’t know what to do next.”
Don’t be ashamed to bring up any subject matter that is concerning to you. Remember, there is no shame is God’s eyes. He is not the God of shame but the God of love.
God loves you and only wants the very best for you.

God, why do men seek evil & destruction?

God, why do men/women plan/plot evil & destruction against the innocent?

God, why do they find delight in the pain, suffering & anguish that they cause?

Father, our hearts are heavy w/sorrow, anguish & pain from what has taken place in Las Vegas. Lord, please help us!

God, this pain is too much for us to bear. Take it from us Father.

God, our hearts are still reeling from the recent catastrophic weather events of late.

Jesus, this pain is too much to endure! Father, You never intended for us to carry the burden of so much pain & suffering.

Our hearts have been berated over & over again with recent human-made turmoil, horrific weather events, earthquakes & fires.

We ask ourselves how this type of evil is allowed to happen.

Father, we know that some men reject the light which is our Savior & seek darkness. When this happens, sin is allowed to fester & grow.

God, create in each of us a clean heart. Father, remove everything in our hearts/lives that is displeasing to You.

God, forgive each of us for our sins. God, cleanse us w/the precious blood of our Savior, Jesus.
God, we receive Jesus as our Savior.

God, let us seek Your protection every day. God, remind us that You have given us Your armor( Eph. 6:13-16 ) to apply daily to our loved ones & to ourselves.

Father, let us use prayer of protection via Your hedge of protection, our angels that encamp around us & by applying the blood of Jesus.

In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
