Happy Mother’s Day!

What words can be used to describe a mother?

Mothers are nurturers.  Mothers are caring, loving, giving, understanding, patient & brave.  Mothers are fierce!  They will do whatever is necessary to protect their children.

Mothers are steadfast.  Mothers are imaginative, coming up with brilliant ideas to sustain their family.

The love of a mother is indescribable & unconditional!  The love a woman gives cannot be measured or understood.  When they love, they love fiercely!

I thank God for the faith of a woman!  The faith of a woman can sustain her family through any major crisis.

I thank God for the prayers of a mother.  Praying women can move mountains!  God’s word says this about a mother.  In Proverbs 31:25 it says: “Strength and dignity are her clothing and her position is strong and secure; And she smiles at the future [knowing that she and her family are prepared].  In verse 28, God’s word says this about a mother: “Her children rise up and call her blessed (happy, prosperous, to be admired).”

God also says this about women in verse 30: “Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

Most of all a mother is a prayer warrior!  The fervent prayer of a mother avails much! God’s word says this about fervent prayer in James 5:16 – The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” Do not let that one word “man” deter you.  God is not a respecter of persons (Acts 10:34).  The fervent prayer of the women is no different from that same prayer of a man.

In fact, a women’s prayer can be more powerful. Why? Because women give their hearts completely to God. Women for some reason trust God in an easier fashion.  Why?  I am not sure.  Perhaps it is because a woman loves and trusts wholeheartedly.  A lot of times without question or doubts.

I truly believe in my heart of hearts that God created women with an incredible capacity to love.

Yes, a woman is a fierce person.  And don’t let all this silly talk about men giving birth and becoming mothers too fool or confuse you.  God made man and women. God is not and will never be confused on what He created us to be.

A biological man cannot carry a child. A man will never know the blessing it is to carry and care for a living human inside their body.

Mothers, I say thank you today & every day for the job that you do!  It is one where there is no pay and long enduring hours.

Sometimes, there isn’t enough appreciation for the sacrifices you make.  Today we honor you!  We say thank you for everything that you do!

You are tremendous!

Happy father’s day.

Who is a father? A father is a leader for his family. A father is a provider. A father is the protector of his family. A father is supportive, loving, caring, and a great listener.
A father shows each of his children what they are worth. He establishes their strength with his affirming words.
Can any man be a father? No, unfortunately not. Any many can be a dad, but becoming a father takes hard work.
A father sticks it out in the good and in the difficult times.
A father shows his children how to work hard for what they want.
A father instills endurance in his children. He teaches them how never to quit.
A father wants only the very best for his children.
A father showers his children with gifts while enforcing the rules to ensure his children become productive adults.
A father must discipline his children to ensure they understand there are consequences when we break the rules.
A father establishes strength in his sons and develops values in his daughters.
Yes, becoming a great father takes work, but it is well worth all the effort.
Today, I wish every father a Happy father’s day.
I pray God gives you the wisdom, direction, strength, and endurance to raise a wonderful family.
Remember always to lay a strong foundation of God for your child will always return to that foundation (Prov22:6)

God, hear our prayers for all those who are suffering.

Father, hear our prayers rise to You. God, listen to our words as we cry out to help.
God, this nation is in turmoil & disarray. God, there is too much tension, disagreement, arguing, name-calling, hate & anger gripping this country.
Father, Your word tells us to pray for all with supplication & via intercession(1Tim2:1).
God, this nation has been gripped by destruction & suffering. These events are our cue to draw CLOSER to You via our prayers!
It’s time to seek You first above ALL other things. God, let us pull You closer than ever before.
We lift up all those who are suffering & in danger from the fires in California.God, protect & guide all those in danger.

We place a hedge of protection around them. We also set a hedge of protection around our nation. Angels, in the name of Jesus, protect our borders.
God, expose every plot & plan of evil meant to bring death & destruction of innocent people.
God, bless this nation! Father, restore her to her former glory & make her wonderfully blessed once again.
Restore our jobs & our livelihoods. Let businesses flourish to create new jobs. Father, open new companies that would allow for the creation of employment also.

God, it’s time for our weapon of prayer!

Prayer warriors, it is time to weaponize our strength through our prayer! I think most of us do not realize how POWERFUL our prayers are.  If you only knew what happens in heaven when we pray, you would NEVER stop praying.

Prayer brings us power. Prayer breaks stress. Prayer breaks our doubts & fears.  Prayer builds our faith. Prayer gives God the authority to intervene in our lives & situations. Without our prayer or intercessory prayers, God does not intervene unto our free will.

God will always answer our prayers. Be aware that God’s ways are not our ways.  The way He answers prayers may be unexpected from the way we thought He would answer us.

I know I have been talking about prayer A LOT! Please understand that the words and thoughts posted on this blog page are not the words and thoughts from me but are those that the Holy Spirit is guiding me to write about and discuss. Hence the name of this blog page, Holy Ground Today.  These are God’s words/ideas guiding us for the issues and problems of today’s world.

Prayer is, of course, important to God as He keeps bringing me back to this same topic. God has been very adamant about prayer and the healing of our nation.  Both go hand in hand because we need to seek the healing for our country via our prayers.

The importance of praying for our nation to God was recently confirmed to me by a online post by a tremendous man of God – Franklin Graham.  In his post, he said that he believed God had given us a small window of opportunity to pray for the forgiveness and healing of our nation.

Here are some reminders of what God says about prayer via His word:

Does our prayer really change things?  God’s word says that the prayer of a righteous man has great power to prevail James 5:16.

His Word also says that He hears & answer our prayers 1 John 5:14.

His Word says that He desires men to lift holy hands to pray & not quarrel 1 Timothy 2:8

Most of all,  God tells us to pray without ceasing & to give thanks in ALL circumstances 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 .

Prayer is so important that the Holy Spirit prays for us when we are totally broken having no human words to utter to God Romans 8:26.

God has shown us how to pray & who to pray for Matthew 6:9-13 , 1 Timothy 2:1-6 .

God has even given us the power and ability to magnify & intensify our prayer through  coming into agreement with other believers praying for the same exact thing.  Matthew 18:19.

And most importantly, God tells us that if we pray, seek Him & turn from our wickedness and He will heal our land 2 Chronicles 7:14 .

Please pray this prayer with me.  God, heal our land!  Restore this nation to Her former glory.  God, have mercy on the people struggling in poverty.  Bring this nation back into alignment with You God. God, we have fallen out of Your grace with our sin.

God forgive this nation for Her sins.  Father, throw our sins into the sea of forgetfulness.  Father, we have strayed so far from You.  God, convict us as we do things that are displeasing to You. Bring this nation back to Her rightful place God. Bless this nation once again with abundance. God, bring this nation back into alignment with You.  Heal & restore our land, God!

God, bless, protect & guide our leaders. Let them seek Your counsel first. God, let each of us pray for them relentlessly & fervently. Angels, in Jesus’s name, we command you to stand at the North, South, East & West of our leaders and divinely protect them.

God, protect our brave men & women of the Armed Forces. God, send angels to encamp around them.

God, we place a hedge of protection around our nation.  Angels, in Jesus’s name, we command you to stand at every border and coast and protect this country.

God, bring an end to all the violence occurring around the world.  Father, expose & destroy every plot, plan & ploy of the enemy to bring terror, fear, death & destruction to the innocent.

God let us remember to ask for Your divine protection daily.  Let us not forget to apply Your full armor every day to our loved ones Ephesians 6:10-18 . Let us also not forget that You have already given us authority over the enemy Luke 10:19 .

God, intervene in all of the turmoil around our globe.  God, destroy & expose every stronghold, ruler of darkness, principality & power of the enemy! God, I come in agreement with every other believer praying this same prayer. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Perhaps you were once close to God but for whatever reason have moved away from Him.  If you hear Him calling you back to Him, then there is another prayer God wants to extend to you.

Perhaps you want to accept Christ as your personal savior for the first time. Again, the prayer below is the one God wants to extend to you.

Please pray this prayer with me. Dear Father, please forgive me for my sins.  God, please cleanse me with the precious blood of Jesus.  I know Christ died on the cross for me.  I know He was crucified, buried and then arose on the third day.  I know He ascended and now sits on the right hand of God.  I receive Jesus as my savior.  In Jesus name, we pray, Amen.

God, bless the emergency responders/law enforcement officers in England with Your strength/fortitude. God, expose these evil men/women's hiding places. God, what they plan in secret, You will make known to man(Luke12:2). God, reveal all their wicked plans/plots/ploys to bring death/destruction to the innocent. God, thank You that You have given us the authority over all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19) therefore, nothing can harm us! God, we give You the authority to intervene in all of this turmoil around our globe via our prayers. God, we come into agreement through our prayers.  Our agreement intensifies our prayers! God, destroy every stronghold, ruler of darkness, principality & power of the enemy that is involved in this destruction! God, protect us! We put on Your full armor(Eph6:13-20)! In Jesus' name, Amen. #SCRIPTURE #Savoir #redeemed #Jesus #GOD #Bible #Love #believe  #TrustHim #holyspirit #destiny #prophecy #Worship #restoration #pray #takeaction #letthechurcharise #makeadifference #DreamAgain #blessed #hope #RUMyMother #protection #armor  #spirit #awakening #power #changedlives
