At His last supper, the Lord said "And let him who has no sword sell his mantle and buy one."(Luke 22:36) Pray for America, and for the strength to help keep the Christian values that it was founded upon. "For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." ( Ephesians 6:12-13)
As a prodigal I humbly ask that God would grant me the strength and courage to faithfully endure the chastisement we have brought upon ourselves. More importantly, when blood martyrdom begins in this country, I pray that God will help me to die well, if it comes to that.
I believe that was my sole new year's resolution, Rick.
I agree with you all. Praying for America, and the lost ones. "Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead." Phil. 3:13
