Despair….meets mercy

        “Heather, why are you surprised when the lost, act lost?” My wise pastor retorts, to my lament of a co-workers outrageous behavior.

Perhaps, today you are in the same place I am, shaking your head at the outlandish, childish behavior, on every channel.  All over the news, we see people operating from utter despair and desperation.

I ask you, why are you surprised when the lost, act lost?

Let us put away our unbelief and realize what is before us- Revival.  See the opportunity!  Meet despair with mercy. Provide the hope they desperately need, eternal hope in Jesus Christ.

Reach out your hand and lift the “lost” brother off the ground into eternal relationship with Christ.

Lord Jesus, help me to not see those in despair, acting out violently as a thing of contempt, but rather as a person in need of a Savior.  Remind us they are a glimpse of our own hearts before salvation. Desperate for stability- their trust in man has failed. Help us to walk out and speak out the gospel on the streets and in our workplace.  Embolden us to reach out to those in despair with compassion and gentleness of heart.  Let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Amen

The harvest is ripe- we prayed for revival and it is upon us.  Do not walk away from this gift.  Take your place in the ranks of the harvesters for Christ.

Thank you- Pastor Kurt Verhoeven

Heal our nation…

Heal our Nation

flag-2

Lord Jesus, there is none higher or more glorious.  You are our sovereign God.  As a nation we humble ourselves before the Lord.  Pour out Your, healing.  We ask for the forgiveness of the sins of this nation: murder of the innocent, worship of money and power, self-will and indulgence.  Please forgive us, we are undeserving of Your grace and mercy but beg for it anyway.  Save this nation for the sake of the remnant and we will worship You, with new hearts a lit with a passion to bring You Joy our Lord and Master.  We pull down and cast out entitlement, indulgence, power, money-lust and coveting in Jesus name.  We pour over our nation a new desire for right standing with God a burning commitment for prayer for revival.  Drench us in Your mercy as we seek Your face.  Heal us; bind up our wounds by the power of the blood of Jesus, Amen.

Please be in agreement with and pass this on to other prayer warriors. The Lord’s word says that if we humble ourselves, He will heal our nation.  Please join me in humbling ourselves.  Thank you.

James 5:16 (AMP)

Therefore, confess your sins to one another [your false steps, your offenses], and pray for one another, that you may be healed and restored. The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power].
