Prayer Alert – US and UK – October 11, 2016

PRAYER ALERT – October 11, 2016

I woke up with a song in my heart for the United States and the UK and immediately felt God’s urging to be on the alert today.

As a Canadian, I don’t have much say in the US election process. Furthermore, I don’t have much of a say into the situation in the UK.

However, as a Christian who happens to be a Canadian, I have much to say in the heavenlies. Join with me, praying from a firm foundation based on the truth that we can shift society through our faith, our integrity, and our fearless voice. While we are on alert, we should not be anxious or fearful!

“History Maker”
Is it true today that when people pray
Cloudless skies will break
Kings and queens will shake
Yes it’s true and I believe it
I’m living for you
Is it true today that when people pray
We’ll see dead men rise
And the blind set free
Yes it’s true and I believe it
I’m living for you
I’m gonna be a history maker in this land
I’m gonna be a speaker of truth to all mankind
I’m gonna stand; I’m gonna run
Into your arms, into your arms again

This is not a statement that is pro or against anyone running. I ask that you do not respond to this alert in a political fashion. Let’s PRAY. Humble ourselves. Humble ourselves by laying down our right to be ‘right’, our right to be ‘suspicious and cloak it under the word ‘discernment, our right to shut our eyes and stop our ears from hearing something that might shake our political stances. Let’s pray with humility.

2 Chronicles 7:14 -“if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

God knows everything, and we don’t know as much as we think or say we do. He calls us to be alert and obedient to His call to pray.

Until Next Week
