Daniel’s Prayer For His Nation

Daniel’s prayer for his nation is my prayer for my nation. Lord, may Your will for my nation be done.

Elements of True Prayer, Part 1 Dan 9:1-3

Notes

“Prayer is born out of a comprehension of the standards and the plans and the principles and the precepts of God as revealed in His Word.”
An excellent introduction to how to pray from a study of Dan 9:1-3. Daniel “observed in the books” and this lead to an awesome prayer.
I. Prayer is Generated by God’s Word
II. Prayer is Grounded in God’s Will
III. Prayer is Characterized by Fervency

These are very trying times. We tend to forget all the battles that are on all the fronts that we are fighting these days. Grace church is constantly under attack. I am constantly under attack from unbelievable sources that you would be surprised to even know about. This is just part and parcel of life. We struggle in the spiritual areas with the families in our church. We struggle financially trying to meet needs. We have many battles and I really believe that it’s easy for people to sit in this church with all that we have around us and figure it’s all going so well, who needs my prayers.

And we say, Jesus is going to come anyway, and it’s all going to be well in the end. And we get very spiritual, but it’s really fatalism. And we never get on our knees with the fervency, and we never really identify with the will and the Word of God and the way that this beloved Daniel did. And consequently we miss that intimate communion.

You know, when you pray, you don’t always have to come to God for an answer. Sometimes, you can just come to God to carry the weight of the plan of God in your own heart. So that you can be identified with his great and eternal purposes. And I suggest to you beloved that the Lord isn’t telling us this all the time just so we can sit and walk out of here and forget it. The Lord is telling us this because he wants us to react to it.

I don’t believe we have ever seen in this church what God could do, if we became totally committed to prayer. If your theology messes up your prayer life, then you have got a bad theology, bad one. If you are studying the Word of God, then the natural response is that you commune with the God of the Word.

You know, I find in my own life that as I prepare a message, the whole experience of preparation is a combination of prayer and the ministry of the Word. I could never separate the two. For example, I come to a verse and I read it and I say Lord, what a truth and I usually get up and walk around because I have to move. Because, I get excited about it. Or I’ll come to a verse that I don’t understand and I say, Lord, I need your help on this, illuminate my mind, draw me to a scripture that will explain this. And the whole process of the Word is prayer.

First Step Act: Reducing Sentences For Nonviolent Offenders

The First Step Act, Chuck Colson, and the Church’s Work of Restoration

  • “The First Step Act,” which sought to reduce the number of people in overcrowded federal prisons and improve conditions for those behind bars.
  • When he endorsed the bill, President Trump said, “We’re all better off when former inmates can receive and re-enter society as law-abiding, productive citizens.” At last month’s Republican National Convention, Ivanka Trump called the First Step Act “the most significant criminal justice reform of our generation.” That’s not an overstatement.
  • A major feature of the bill is that it reduces mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenders, especially “low-level, nonviolent offenders.”
  • In its first year, the First Step Act has literally changed thousands of lives. According to a recent report from the United States Sentencing Commission, the sentences of more than 7,000 federal prisoners, deemed able to safely return to their communities, were reduced.
  • the First Step Act is a modest, but very real, “first step” towards comprehensive criminal justice reform

Intercession

Let the priests, the Lord’s ministers, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, “Spare Your people, O Lord, and do not make Your inheritance a reproach, a byword among the nations. Why should they among the peoples say, ‘Where is their God?'” Joel 2:17


O Lord our Governor, bless the leaders of our land, that we may be a people at peace among ourselves and a blessing to other nations of the earth.

To the President and members of the Cabinet, to Governors of States, Mayors of Cities, and to all in administrative authority, grant wisdom and grace in the exercise of their duties.

To Senators and Representatives, and those who make our laws in States, Cities, and Towns, give courage, wisdom, and foresight to provide for the needs of all our people, and to fulfill our obligations in the community of nations.

To the Judges and officers of our Courts give understanding and integrity, that human rights may be safeguarded and justice served.

And finally, teach our people to rely on your strength and to accept their responsibilities to their fellow citizens, that they may elect trustworthy leaders and make wise decisions for the well-being of our society; that we may serve you faithfully in our generation and honor your holy Name.

For yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all.
Amen.

from The Book of Common Prayer.

A Man by the Name of Norm Eisen

As the man who implemented the David Brock blueprint for suing the President into paralysis and his allies into bankruptcy, who helped mainstream and amplify the Russia Hoax, who drafted 10 articles of impeachment for the Democrats a full month before President Trump ever called the Ukraine President in 2018, who personally served as special counsel litigating the Ukraine impeachment, who created a template for Internet censorship of world leaders and a handbook for mass mobilizing racial justice protesters to overturn democratic election results, there is perhaps no man alive with a more decorated resume for plots against President Trump.

Look What Is Responsible For 100% Of All Recorded Fatalities

Although man will live forever, death looks certain. According to a report from…

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND–World Health Organization officials expressed disappointment Monday at the group’s finding that, despite the enormous efforts of doctors, rescue workers and other medical professionals worldwide, the global death rate remains constant at 100 percent.

Death, a metabolic affliction causing total shutdown of all life functions, has long been considered humanity’s number one health concern. Responsible for 100 percent of all recorded fatalities worldwide, the condition has no cure.

WHO Director General Dr. Gernst Bladt said, “I was really hoping, what with all those new radiology treatments, rescue helicopters, aerobics TV shows and what have you, that we might at least make a dent in it this year,”. “Unfortunately, it would appear that the death rate remains constant and total, as it has inviolably since the dawn of time.”

Many are suggesting that the high mortality rate represents a massive failure on the part of the planet’s health care workers.
“The inability of doctors and scientists to adequately address this issue of death is nothing less than a scandal,” concerned parent Marcia Gretto said. “Do you have any idea what a full-blown case of death looks like? Well, I do, and believe me, it’s not pretty. In prolonged cases, total decomposition of the corpse is the result.” “What about the children?” the visibly moved Gretto added.

Robert Hemmlin of Citizens for Safety said, “At this early date, I don’t want to start making broad generalizations, but it is beginning to seem possible that birth–as well as the subsequent life cycle that follows it–may be a serious safety risk for all those involved.”

Experts say death affects not only the dead, but the non-dead as well. “Those who suffer from death can be highly traumatized by it, often so severely that it kills them,” noted therapist Eli Wasserbaum said. “But it can also be very traumatic for the still-living who are left behind. The sudden cessation of metabolic activity characteristic of terminal cases of death often leaves the dead person in a position where they are unable to adequately provide for the emotional needs of their loved ones.”

Strengthen The Things That Remain

Christians, Wake Up, The Time Is Now! Either Act At Once, Or See All You Hold Dear Destroyed – RFAngle

  • She said that she can’t be a part of the silent majority because she can’t be quiet.
  • To truly live means to express yourself- your values, beliefs, and convictions. We live in the United States of America and no one can tell you to be quiet. No one has the right to bully you into silence.
  • Don’t let what you see on the news discourage you into complacent silence. How will anyone know the truth, the actual truth, if we let the other side scare us into being quiet?
  • When asked what the biggest lie in America is right now, Charlie Kirk nailed it. He said the biggest lie is this idea that we can all have our own truth, that truth is subjective. The fact is, it isn’t.
  • The reason people so quickly gravitate to the idea of everyone having their own truth is because this means people can do whatever they want, they don’t have to be accountable to anyone or anything. This culture says if you don’t agree with someone they reserve the right to attack you.
