America, this election represents the fight for the soul of our country.

America, I have said this many times, and today, I am repeating this. 

America, we are in a spiritual battle for the soul of America. This choice includes the choice of our leaders in our upcoming election. One candidate is pro-life, and one candidate is pro-choice. 

We have those fighting for life, liberty, and the American way of life.  

We also have those fighting for the freedom to choose death for an unborn innocent baby, socialism, and the radical change of America into a country that will be astounding for those in power and utterly devesting for those who are not. 

America, we have allowed the murder of innocent babies for decades now. Since 1973, approximately 61 million babies have been killed in the United States. 

Planned Parenthood performs 947 abortions every day.

There were 20 million African-American babies killed via Planned Parenthood. 79% of their facilities are located within walking distance of black and brown communities.

America, abortion is the genocide of the African American population in the U.S. Genocide is not coming from the police’s hands. That is an inaccurate statement. 

Despite what you think, abortion is the murder of an innocent baby. Many do not feel this way, but they will see that statement is very accurate. When they face God in judgment, as we all will, they will find out that God saw this as the murder of a precious baby’s life. 

God holds all life as precious and valuable. Life is a precious gift from God Himself (Psalms139:14).

God tells us thou shall not murder. It is one of His ten commandments (Exodus 20:13). Yet, we sit back and allow the murder of so many innocent babies. 

In His word, God Himself says that the innocent bloodshed of life is one of the six things that God dislikes the most (Prov 6:16-19).

God’s words tell us the wages for our sins is death. I can’t even begin to imagine what the wages are for all the innocent blood we have allowed to be shed. God, help us!

But our God is just and fair! He will hold those accountable for this vile practice! This accountability includes those of us who sat by and allowed this atrocity to continue without saying a word. 

Do not kid yourself. There is a price for us to pay for allowing these murders to continue. Every choice for allowing sin has consequences for us.  

For one, I will now be one of those who sit back and say and do nothing while this practice continues to be allowed. Also, I will not be one who sits back and says nothing while our taxpayer dollars go to fund Planned Parenthood’s murder of innocent babies. 

Thank God for His never-ending forgiveness!

You may be asking what you can do to stop this. You might even be thinking that you are just one person, and your voice doesn’t matter. It does matter! It matters to this cause, and most of all, it matters to God Himself!

What can you do about this? First and foremost, you must seek God’s forgiveness. If you are genuinely seeking forgiveness, you will be forgiven by God.

Second, you must write, call, or email your Senator, your State Representative, and the White House too. 

Please tell them to stop abortion in America. Please ask them to stop using our American taxes to fund these vile clinics and the murders of innocent lives. And most of all, you must pray for God to intervene.

You can’t stop after one letter, email, or even one call. This abortion battle is going to be an ongoing battle. 

America, we are in the spiritual battle for the soul of our country. It is time to pick aside. It is time to fight and pray like never before. When I say fight, I do not mean physical fighting or fist fighting. I mean fighting on our knees via our prayers. After all, prayers are what we use as a weapon of warfare. 

Third, we must also pray for America’s forgiveness and every person involved in these murders, whether indirectly or directly. 

Make no mistake about it, each one of us will have to answer to God for choosing leaders who allowed abortions to continue. The choice of a leader who supports abortions is the same as a choice of you saying, “yes, please continue these grisly murders.” Our vote in God’s eyes is our voice in either support or non-support of this practice. 

Also, please note that I am a messenger of God’s word. If you find offense to what is being said here then You have offense of God’s word because that is what is being discussed here. This is the word of God and not of myself.

In fact, I am not asking you to believe me. If you support pro-choice, here is a little task for you. Pray, ask God to reveal the truth to you for your own knowledge. Ask God to open your eyes and ears and let His truth be known. Ask Him if abortion is murder. If you really seek the truth, then He will reveal it to you. God’s word says “ask and you shall receive, knock and the door will be opened (Luke11:9).

But know this, once you read this and know the truth, you are responsible to God for it.

Lets pray together: God, please forgive each of us for allowing these murders of babies in America and for allowing these clinics’ ghoulish acts to sell the baby parts for profit.

God, let us seek your face, turn from our wicked ways, pray, so You can heal our land, Father. 

God, we need you now more than ever. God, let America return to You. Father, thank You for Your eternal forgiveness. 

God forgive America for the choices we have made in the past. God, our intentions to continue to sin against You have allowed doors to open that we are not equipped to handle. 

Father, our choices to allow sin has brought hate, division, bitterness, resentment, murders of innocent Americans in our streets, destruction, and the ruin of many American families, business owners, and our economy. 

God, our own economy is weak and teetering on the destruction. God, help us! 

God, our sins have allowed the release of a vile virus. This virus has taken the lives of many people around the world. God, forgive us!  

God, we look to You to end this virus once and for all. We know You are the only one with the answer to this virus. God, give man the solution to end this virus today, whether in a therapeutic, a vaccine, or a medication. God, we know that You provide all knowledge. We receive by faith the answer to end this virus today. 

God, restore our world’s economies. God, we give you all the praise! 

God, end this hate and division in America. God, we know Your word says that a house divided cannot stand(Mark 3:25).

God, heal our nation of this division, hate, discrimination, and racism. 

Father, we ask the candidates that You want to fill the positions of leadership take office. Father, let Your will be done.

God, we love You, and we seek Your wisdom now with the issue of abortion. God, give us Your boldness and diligence to continue to fight this vile issue. 

God, only You can change the hearts and minds of man. God, open the eyes and let Your truth be revealed to those who support pro-life.

God, let us not go weary in doing good. 

We ask all these things in the precious name of our Savior, Jesus. Amen.

Those in power are no match for God’s power.

Congress, you were elected by the people to work for the people. You took an oath that you would uphold our Constitution and protect the citizens of this mighty nation.

We counted on you to keep your promises to us. We placed you in a place of power to work for us. We didn’t put you into that office to rewrite our Constitution or reimage what the Constitution means to you, give away our jobs, and eliminate the middle class.

We placed you there to create jobs, create opportunities for all American citizens, create fair laws, and do what you said you were going to do.

You made us promises while you asked us for our votes. Then, we elected you. We trusted you. Then we went about our own business of raising our families, making our livings, and running our businesses.
Year after year, this went on. We kept trusting you. We kept believing in you.

Most of us wanted to pay attention to what was going on. We wanted to go to the rallies, attend the fundraisers, and go to the town meetings, but we were too tired. We were too busy working longer and harder hours for less money.

We noticed something wasn’t right, but we were just too busy with providing and taking care of our families. We saw the prices of education, health care, medicines, and food rise and rise. What did we do? What could we do? We had to keep working to provide.

Then we noticed something very odd. We hear our children speaking differently as they talk about how much they hate America. We saw them turn from happy individuals to unhappy individuals filled with hate for others.

Again, we wanted to do something, but we were busy working three jobs to keep paying for the insanely high college tuition and board for all our children.

Now, with our children off on their own, things have started to slow down for us. We see that our savings aren’t going to be enough to provide for us through our retirement.

We face the hardship of knowing we have to go out and look for a part-time job to keep us afloat. We see medicine and healthcare skyrocket in costs. We don’t even have the money to travel as we had planned. All our dreams, we had seemed impossible to grasp.

We look around and see our neighborhoods have changed. We barely recognize them anymore. Many local small businesses have gone under, and so many houses are now abandoned and boarded up. All there is are the big chain stores. There are no more mom and pop shops left.

We get a call from the police to tell us our oldest child was arrested for looting in Portland. Wow! We are taken aback. We never saw that coming. We didn’t raise our children that way, but the college she attended seemed to have changed her from a well-adjusted young child to an angry, hateful adult.

We stand back and look. We wonder where we went wrong. We did everything expected of us. We took care of our family, worked hard, and raised our children to be respectful of others. We taught them to love and not hate. We taught them to help others and to volunteer. Most of all, we taught them to love America as She is the greatest nation on earth.

Where did we go wrong? Please wait a minute. Was it because we trusted those politicians with our jobs and our future. We gave them all power. Now there is some horrible virus going around, and we cannot go outside, we cannot work, we cannot go on vacation, and most of all, we can’t go to church and sing to worship our God.

We have to stay inside and wear masks at all times when we do get to go outside. How did all this happen? How did we get here? We look and see those same politicians are still in office. They are still making the same promises today as they did 30 years ago.

But we do see there is something different for them. Each of them is incredibly wealthy. These politicians get to take vacations and fly on private jets. They live in sprawling estates with tall fences and armed guards. They have fancy refrigerators and can go on T.V. and brag about the expensive desserts they love to enjoy.

We barely have enough money left to buy food. We cannot even afford some of our medications. We don’t have money for vacations, and we will never know how it feels to fly in a private jet. We don’t even have any police officers in our neighborhood anymore because those same politicians defunded our police.

Why did we trust them, and why did they let America turn into such ruins? Why didn’t they fight for America, for us and our jobs? Why did they get so powerful and seem to want more of it? What do we do next? How do we get out of this horrible situation?

America, many families are going through this very scenario. Many individuals have turned to drugs, alcohol, gambling to ease their pains. Suicide and depression are on the rise. Our children cannot go to school and have become stagnant in their growth and knowledge.

Covid-19 has decimated the economies of countries around the world. Many people are starving. There are food shortages, riots, death, and destruction all around us.

Anger, hate, division, and riots are ongoing. What are we to do? There is one thing we cannot give up on. That is prayer. I know I have said this repeatedly, but I don’t think many people understand how powerful our prayer is.

Yes, we made mistakes giving our power and trust to the wrong people, but God is a forgiving God. He is a vindicating and trustworthy God. And He is a God of the turnaround!

Our prayer invites a miracle-working God into our situations. I am not sure about you, but I want the God of miracles working for me. I want to send out that invitation for the divine turnaround. I want and need God to step in cause I have made a mess of things.

Prayer moves our mountains, and our faith pleases God. So, pray, pray, pray, and pray. Also, fast and plant a seed for God’s turnaround in the situations we are facing.

Don’t let the worries and fears of what is being said on T.V. stop your worship. Worship like never before and pray without ceasing. Pray until something happens – PUSH. Pray until God moves. I know you may not understand why it takes God so long to move, but we have to remember that God does not move on our time, and His ways are not our ways.

He is God who holds all power, knowledge, wealth, and wisdom!

God, help our children!

praywithoutCeasingWP11.2.19

I had been working on a follow-up piece to my blog from 10.20.19 about climate fears (https://holygroundlive.wordpress.com/2019/10/20/cast-every-burden-of-fear-worry-and-uncertainty-onto-him/), but God changed my direction.
Our children are in trouble. They are the object of destruction by our enemy Satan.
From babies who are aborted and murdered before they draw one breath, to those who are taken by overdoses, they all speak of one thing, which is the destruction of our youth.
I have heard some people saying, “Abortion is something that is okay with God.” This lie is one being told to our young teens by the pro-choice groups, planned parenthood, many politicians, and those in Hollywood.
Abortion is murder in God’s eyes, plain and simple. There is no grey area or confusion here.
Every child conceived is planned by God that has a divine purpose. No one is conceived as a mistake.
Gun violence in some of our big cities is out of control. Some battles take place every weekend and holidays, killing many young people. How many casualties of these bitter rivalries are innocent children that have absolutely nothing to do with these gang rivalries?

How many teens are on mind-altering prescription drugs? How many are depressed and on the verge of suicide?
School shootings have also taken a toll on our children.
Teen suicide has risen over the last ten years. Why are our children killing themselves? Why do they feel hopeless and defeated? They think they have no future. They feel unloved and uncared about. How did all this happen?
We have all these technologies that are supposed to keep us “connected” with each other, but the truth is that these technologies have driven us farther apart.
Our teens feel isolated and alone. They don’t talk. A lot of teens are introverts. They feel awkward around groups of people. Many are bullied by others who use the very technologies that are “supposed” to bring us closer to each other.
All in all, we have caused so many of these problems. We have given up on God, stopped praying, stopped reading, stopped engaging, and in some instances, we have stopped hoping.
Over the last few years, we have allowed the destruction of the family unit. We have also allowed once illegal drugs to become legalized, prayer to be stopped in our schools, and video games to become the babysitters to our children.
All of these issues are not entirely our faults as our government has made it harder and harder to raise a family. As adults, we have become overwhelmed with work and providing for our families.
I truly believe that God intended one parent to be a full-time mother or father, but our society has not allowed that. Full-time parenthood also applies to grandparents who step in to help single mothers or fathers.
Houses, apartments, food, and all the necessities have all skyrocketed in how much they cost.
Nowadays, many parents have to work two or three jobs to support their families.
At the moment, there may be nothing we can do about the costs of living, but we can take time to contact those we elected to represent us in our government.
Call, email, or write a letter. Make it easier for yourself. Write one letter, copy it, and change the salutation so you can mail that letter to multiple congress people, majors, governors, etc.
We have to become engaged again to demand changes in the cost of our necessities, our housing, our fuel, etc.
One thing we have to do above all else is praying. We cannot stop praying! Never let your prayers cease. If you say you don’t have time to pray, then pray in the shower, while you are walking the dog, exercising, or on the commute to and from work.
There are daily prayers to pray over our families, especially over our children. Grandparents, this also includes your prayers.
Are there specific concerns like drugs or suicide when it comes to a particular child? Then pray specifically for that. God knows our hearts and what is troubling it, but we have to speak up and permit Him to intervene.
Speak to God like you would a friend. Don’t complicate prayer. Most of all, pray often. We can’t just pray once and then blame God when nothing happens.
We have to bombard heaven with all our petitions of prayer. We have to let God know we are determined to see change happen. Be ready for things to appear worse before the breakthrough comes. When this happens, pray ever harder because your answer is on the way. The worsening situation is happening to discourage you from stopping praying, but DON’T.
Seek assistance in prayer to break addictions, generational curses of drug addiction or suicide. Do not be afraid to ask for someone to pray with you. Our joined agreement in prayer increases the power of our prayers.
Remember, God is faithful. He will move on to your prayers. Be patient.
Here are some sites that will help you reference how to pray for your children and grandchildren. These sites also reference God’s word to use for each situation. God’s word CANNOT and WILL NOT fail. God must honor His Word.
God bless each of you.
Always pray (daily) for the placement of the full Armor of God over each family member, especially your children:

God, hear our prayers for the end of hatred!

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

God, today we are weeping with such heavy sorrow.
Father, today a crazed and hateful person went into a place of worship to hurt, maim, and destroy innocent lives?
God, these innocent people were there to celebrate the blessing of a new baby.
This is a horrific act of bigotry, hate, and racism.
Father, we need Your comfort today! How much more pain can this nation endure?
Father, so much hate is swirling around trying to hold each one of us in its grip.
Holy Spirit, comfort all of those in pain. Engulf them with Your abundant love and peace.
Holy Spirit, hold them up in their weariness & distress. Blanket them w/peace, and Your love that knows no end.
Father, do not let this incident deter us from praying for the unity of this mighty nation.
God, let us not grow weary in doing good. Do not let discouragement take hold of our hearts and spirits.
Father, do not allow this incident instill fear in our hearts about attending our houses of worship.
You did not give us the spirit of fear but of one of a sound mind, peace, and love.
God, we bind fear, hate, bigotry, and racism. We release love, unity, peace, and acceptance in their places. Your word tell us that what is bound on earth is bound in heaven and what is loosed on earth is loosed in heaven(Matt16:19).
We pray in agreement and unity in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Our prayer has POWER!

hand-drawn-word10.20.18

Do you ever feel like no one is listening when you pray?
There is one thing you should know. God is ALWAYS listening. He always hears, listens, and responds to our prayers.

Never allow someone to convince you that prayer does not work.
Don’t ever feel that prayer is useless. That is the farthest thing from the truth.
Our prayer gives our living God permission to intervene in our situations & lives.
Know with full confidence that God is listening and arranging things to work out for our good.
His word even tells us how and when to pray (Matt6:7-13). He tells us to pray without ceasing (1 Thes 5:17).
Anything that is worth having is always worth fighting for.
Prayer is our powerful weapon(Ephesians 6:18). Never underestimate its power(James 5:16) (Mark 11:24)!

 

Word of God!
