No Words?

I always struggle with words…not really words, but rather the right words.  The right words that help and not hurt, the words that accomplish the goal, without people thinking I am off my rocker.  Words that don’t shock or scare someone.  Words that bring peace to a troubled heart.    Yes, it matters….

Yesterday a prayer request came in….  It is was one of those that everyone looked at and no one prayed.  It was difficult.  The poster shared some very private information in this circle of friends, and needed prayer for a family member.  It was a devastating occurrence in the family, and this family had been hit with so many sorrows over the past months, even years.

When a prayer request comes in and people are in desperate need of prayer, it is a shame to not pray.  It is so difficult for us, because we always think we might pray or say something that makes it worse, or that we just don’t know how to pray.

“Blink”  “light on”  You don’t need to know how to pray.  You don’t need to have perfect words.  Yes, I do know that almost everyone prayed…just didn’t post it.  I am sure that the cry went out to God to help this person and help this family.  There are others who see immediately what the “real” problem is and know what to do about it, but the family and the person may not understand the prayer, if you pray it.

You must…we are called to pray for each other.  We are called to bear one another’s burdens, we are called by our God to Love one another.

There is sadness that touches the heart when you have poured out your soul and no one posts anything. Never, ever let that happen.  Take the time to post something.  At the very least post something that says….I am thinking and praying for you and for whoever the need is for.  I am asking God to intervene in this person’s life.  I am asking God to do what needs to be done to draw this person to Him.  I am praying that this person will get through this “situation.”

We will never know the best way to pray…So we call out to Holy Spirit and ask HIM to put HIS WORDS in our thoughts, and fingers while we keyboard the prayer.  Then ask if there is anything else HE wants us to say….If so…add it… If not…Click POST.

God put you there, in front of that screen and that post because HE wants to partner with you in blessing someone else.  Just trust that what you say and what you do, is right!  Holy Spirit can take any words you post and anoint them and empower them to meet that person’s need.

God is Amazing!  He knows everything.  He can fix anything we mess up.  He can provide all that is needed in every situation and in every need.  HE IS ALL POWERFUL and NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD.

We have all the faith we need.  Pray the prayer… Don’t worry about your prayer being wrong or coming across wrong……Then….TRUST GOD FOR THE RESULTS! Greater things will you do than what I have done, declared Jesus…..  JUST BELIEVE IT!

John 14: 12-14

12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in me in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

My Prayer for this election day!

This is my prayer for today…you may join or not…your choice.

Heavenly Father, Oh Glorious Lord…How we praise you for this nation called America. You know the heaviness of my heart over what has become of her. You know my desire to keep her alive for our children and grandchildren and future generations.

Lord, I look at the lies that have been spoken, and repeated to deceive people into thinking “all is well.” I so disagree with that…All is not well, and without you at the heart and head of this nation, it never will be.

Lord you have heard my prayers, you have heard the battle cry of my heart and the words from YOUR WORD that I have prayed. You know I have stood against the evil, and called out those who pray, to pray fervently for your protection for our citizens, for the safety of the children, for the defeat of the powers of darkness which seek to kill us and destroy our peace.

Today, is the day we vote…I want to call out to you, and beg you to save us, but I know you have heard our prayers, and I know that since you have heard, it is now time to trust you. It is time to watch as you fight this battle that has to be won in order for us to keep Liberty in our land. It is only You who can sabotage the voter fraud that is going on all over the country, and the back door sneaky illegal actions that are designed to destroy the freedoms of the people. It is only YOU who can heal this land and today I praise you for doing that. I expect to see the elections pronounce hope. However, I bow to your plan…your direction and your future. I know that above all that you will turn to good anything that comes against your people. I am reminded of 2 Chronicles 7:14 which says that IF your people will humble themselves and pray and seek you and turn from OUR WICKED WAYS, then YOU will hear from heaven, will forgive our sin and will HEAL OUR LAND. Father…I certainly do not sit on your throne, or know if enough of us have done as you directed, to affect change in this nation. I don’t know if enough of your people have prayed, have sought you, have sought forgiveness. I don’t know your plans…but I trust you. I will fight the fight of faith to trust you through this election. I pray that none of the plans of the enemy will come to pass. I pray that you will intervene, that you will save us.

My heart breaks with the possible loss of more freedom, my heart breaks that against your word our president tries to make peace with our enemy. I long for your Kingdom to come…On earth as it is in heaven….

I long that Christians will not be persecuted(such a sanitary word)…when what I mean is that…I long and my heart breaks that children are being murdered, beheaded, raped, married to muslim men when they are as young as infants….I am horrified that muslims are not OK with vaginally raping babies, but it is OK to sodomize them…I am heartbroken that Mother’s and Father’s are killed, and their children kidnapped for evil purposes. I hate that evil exists in our world…Horrified. I so long for your children to be at peace. I thank you that you care for them, and in my heart I know that even as they are called into death, you are there and you are protecting them and providing all they need at that moment. Yes, Lord, I trust you.

I will watch tonight as election results come in…I will praise you today…I will step back and watch as you fight the battle…The battle is yours Lord. Thank you that tonight that your children get to rest and watch you in action! You are such an awesome God…We are so thankful for the Beautiful and Powerful name of Jesus…There is so much POWER in his name….THANK YOU…

I ask you to place your peace in my heart and head as we watch the battle. I pray that should you request us to pray, that I will hear you and understand exactly what and how I am to pray. I am here Lord…if you can..Use me…and the the Glorious Name of Jesus be Praised! I am reminded that is not by power or might but by YOUR SPIRIT…says the Lord…

Amen and AMEN

It seems every one of us has heard of the “death panels” that will be going into effect sometime in the future when a government bureaucrat will determine who gets to be treated, and who will be left to die.

Death panels are something we have never had to even consider in the past…We must consider it now!

If our State can prevent them from affecting our citizens before they are in place…then we stand a great chance of keeping our Mom and Dad or Grandparents a little longer. This also may be effective in defending against the government denying kidney transplants, or extreme care for young cancer patients, babies born with serious costly medical needs, or even a knee replacement because life expectancy is only 5 more years.

You have heard it said that there is nothing “sure” in life, except death and taxes…. I for one want to pay taxes as long as possible and I surely do not want some corrupt IRS agent telling me that my health is too bad, and they won’t pay for medicine for me any longer.

End of life choices are already the law in North Dakota, but there is no law that will protect us from future death panels…this one might!

Please vote YES on Measure 1

Measure 1 reads….
Constitutional Measure No. 1
(SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
NO. 4009, 2013 SESSION LAWS, CH. 519)
This constitutional measure would create
and enact a new section to Article I of the
North Dakota Constitution stating, “The
inalienable right to life of every human being
at any stage of development must be
recognized and protected.”

Exactly 5 Years ago today a blizzard raged in Minot, North Dakota….and in the hospital a tiny baby was born with No chance of survival.

The doctors here knew immediately they could not care for this child, and the chances of him surviving were (in their minds) non-existent, and yet, they afforded the family the chance of getting this child to a children’s hospital in another state.

An air-evac plane was called to come in, but they couldn’t land…the wind was too strong and the storm was too severe. (more…)
