Some of you are so very weary right now. Jesus wants you to know how deep his compassion is toward you. He is with you right where you are with no expectations except for you to allow him to love you and give you rest.
Some of you are so very burdened right now. The weight of what you are carrying feels like if your strength fails that everything will fall to the ground and crumble. Jesus wants you to know how deep his compassion is for you. He is with you right where you are to remove the yoke and burden that you are carrying. He will trade it for his yoke which is merely to trust him for all you need and all that you are carrying.
““Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. All of you, take up My yoke and learn from Me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for yourselves. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”” Matthew 11:28-30
The Father is so gentle with you! His Son is the fullness of “humble in heart” toward you. He is inviting you to come into his arms and receive the rest that you so desperately need. He has healing for your heart, provision for all that you need, restoration for all that has hurt you and caused you to feel that you must carry this heavy burden.
He loves you so very much— he knows you intimately, every part of you— and yes, he still loves you— you take his breath away. He is pouring out the abundance of his love over you even now. Let go of the control (the yoke that has wearied you) and let your pain fall into his lap. He wants to carry you and refresh you in his love.
Receive his love. For he is gentle and humble in heart…
Thank you to all of my readers who have helped to carry our burdens through prayer and financial support. I have no words that are adequateto thank you properly.
Have you ever tried to change the clothes on a baby that would not lay still? Most of us moms have gone through this process more times than we can count. It is like a wrestling match that makes the whole process drawn out much longer than it needed to be. I remember that there were times, after some sort of “baby blow out”, that was followed by one of these wrestling matches. As they struggled (resisting my nurturing help) I wondered if my baby even cared that he was covered in filth and that his resistance was only making it worse. Did he not want to be clean? Did he not want to smell fresh again? Did he not want to feel the comfort of new garments?
Does this sound familiar? Are some of you going through a season that God is asking you to be still? Though this stillness may be an internal stillness of your soul rather than an external stillness from physical activity, it still seems to insight a fight or wrestle in most people. We resist the very hand that has come to help us, nurture us and make us clean.
Maybe it is just that, like babies, we don’t know that the garments of our soul have become soiled by the accuser? Or maybe we don’t like to stripped of what we have gotten comfortable in. Or maybe it is just that we hate to be still and trust the hand that is changing us!
Many of God’s children are in a time of “being changed.” You may have merely outgrown the garments you have been wearing and need new ones that fit who you have become and the development you have gone through. Do not fight the process but trust the hand that is washing you and putting néw garments upon you.
When my kids were babies I would often stop between the removing of one garment and the dressing them in a new one to get lotions or oils and give them a massage. At first they’d often begin trying to flip over to get away but once my hands began to massage their little feet, legs, hands and arms they would lay back in absolute peace. When it was done they were so relaxed that dressing them was easy.
God may be doing the same thing for you. He has not only removed the soiled garments and washed you but he is restoring peace and relaxation— rest for you over-active soul. He is restoring trust so that you will receive all that is in his hands for you. He is cleansing, purifying, anointing, healing and changing your garments.
The winter garments are about to be changed into garments suitable for spring! Some of you are having grave clothes removed and adorned in “Easter” (resurrection) outfits. The black and white— even grey outdoor scenery is preparing to receiving a makeover. Leaves will suddenly appear, blossoms will appear and the grass will turn green once again. The land will give you a preview of what is happening inside of your heart and soul. His Spirit is moving inside of you to bring forth new life!
Though you do not see it now, be still because your fight and wrestle is only delaying the birthing of this new season. Take time to enjoy his tender touch, his washing and then watch and see what he has chosen to adorn you in. Even the angels have gathered all around you to assist and to watch the beauty that comes forth in you. Get still and receive from his tender hand.
“Be still and know that I am God…”
There are no words that are adequate to express the gratitude I feel for all of my faithful readers who support me in prayer and this ministry through financial gifts!
Have you ever gotten lost on a walk or on a drive? I remember when I was about 20 years old, my husband and I had just moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana (where he was attending college) and I needed to go grocery shopping after a long day at work. It was dark and I didn’t know my way around the city (this was in the days before cell phones or GPS). I had gone to an area of the city that was unfamiliar to me to shop and when I was done I took a wrong turn (in a wrong direction) and suddenly was I was absolutely lost. I didn’t have any coins for a pay phone and honestly didn’t know who’d I call anyway since my husband was at a night class and I didn’t know anyone in the area.
As I drove, looking for anything even remotely familiar, I began to feel panic— would I ever find my way home. I wasn’t in the city limits anymore and couldn’t even find my way back to a populated area. I had gotten off the “beaten path” and was lost and scared. After over two hours of frantic driving I finally found a familiar landmark and my way back to the college. When I arrived I got out of the car and walked to where my young husband was waiting and when I saw him I just fell in his arms weeping— I had found home— in his arms.
2021 began a bit like this for me personally. It felt like I walked out onto my favorite path but somehow turned a wrong corner and ended up in an unfamiliar wilderness with no path, no way to communicate, no sense of direction and completely alone. Quite honestly, I was disoriented and felt a bit of that old “panic” that I’d experienced when I was lost as a 20 year old in a strange city. I just wanted to find my way home.
I began spiritually and emotionally trying to find something familiar or a sign that would lead me back to the path that I knew— the path home. I would go through each day with varying degrees of numbness, grief, longing, surrender, weeping, etc. Nights were the worst because even the beautiful “God dreams” that accompanied my sleep had become nights of bad dreams. I’d wake up even more disoriented.
Finally, I remembered the words that are told to most young children by their parents, “If you get lost, stay still and I will find you.” So, I stopped trying to find my way home— the way back to the intimacy and the “home” I’d known. I stopped and got very still, waiting for my Father to find me where I was (am).
“Instead, I have calmed and quieted myself, like a weaned child who no longer cries for its mother’s milk. Yes, like a weaned child is my soul within me.” Psalm 131:2
I finally stopped long enough to remember that God has never left me or forsaken me— so I stopped looking for a way out of the wilderness and am now finding him in the wilderness. I am drinking of him and learning to “calm and quiet my soul” in his arms.
It is just like that 20 year old who found home in the arms of her young husband, I am finding home in the arms of God, even in this unfamiliar and strange place. There is not much else in this place but he is everything that I need. The verse that comes directly prior to Psalm 131:2 says this,
“LORD, my heart is not proud; my eyes are not haughty. I don’t concern myself with matters too great or too awesome for me to grasp.” Psalm 131:1
I think that I had begun to concern myself with matters too great and too awesome for me to grasp. They began to be like a “master” over me. I had to humble myself and become like a child. I had to get still and remember that, “He is God.”
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
The matter of the nations had become to great for me to grasp. The matter of life and death was too awesome for me to fully comprehend and so God brought me into a wilderness place to show me “home.”
“Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her. There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor (Valley of Trouble) a door of hope. There she will respond as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt. “In that day,” declares the LORD, “you will call me ‘my husband’; you will no longer call me ‘my master.’ Hosea 2:14-16
The wilderness does not “feel” good but as I have discovered a few other times in my life— this “Valley of Trouble” is usually a door of hope that restores my soul and ushers me into a place of greater abundance. But, we must embrace it rather than fight against it.
Running frantically when you have lost your way only gets you more lost. This is where we must stop, get still and know that he is God. He is with you in the wilderness and he will feed you, hold you, restore you and deliver you from every area that has become enslaved to false “masters.” This is where you find him as “husband.” This is where you run into his arms and find home. Then, you will hear this,
“Who is that coming up from the wilderness, leaning on her beloved?” Song of Solomon 8:5
I think that all too often we take on things that “are too great for us to grasp” and they enslave us to a weight and burden that becomes a master over us. When we’ve done all we can do, it is time to get still and stand (Ephesians 6:13). Stand in who he is and stand in the arms of the One that created all. The earth is his and all that is within it. He is God— our partnership with him is in the context of “bridal covenant” not “slave and master.” That is where the enemy loses his footing and love wins.
Stop running…stop striving…stop panicking! Home is with you— right where you are. He is always with you so be still and let him hold you until you are fully restored— leaning on your Beloved!

Grief is a quiet place that is filled with timeless memories, silent prayers and a stillness that only a few are invited into.
It’s an interesting place where “gifts” don’t seem to matter much and all the activities of normal life that filled my time now seem so unimportant. The veil between the temporal and the eternal becomes very thin in this place.
I don’t know if this is grief or just what God is doing right now but even my normal prayers fall short and all I want is to be totally surrendered. Silent surrender seems to be producing deep intercession— wordless but deep. I want to know Him as He is, I want to see His face and learn the intricate movements of His ways, I want to be like Him. Here in grief I find a deeper hunger for the truth of the words, “Be still and know that I am God.”
Rather than my confidence in Him wavering in this place of loss, it has shifted my confidence from what He will do, to a confidence in “Who He Is.” That is the ultimate victory. Understanding His sovereignty, gazing upon His beauty and pondering His eternal perspective consumes my thoughts and desires.
Some days I feel like a caterpillar going through a personal metamorphosis. It is hidden, quiet, still and yet change is happening in this place. Maybe the whole body of Christ is going through this and the grief of “what was” has become our cocoon? Maybe grief is a gift of grace to birth us into a new identity and new way of living? Maybe our tears are like the perfume that flowed out of the alabaster jar upon His feet.
I have always loved my family so deeply but in this place I only want to look into their faces and drink in the unique beauty God created them in. I want to sit next to my husband in silence and just know that he’s here with me. I want to embrace the people I love a little longer and honor others in a way that actually restores their souls.
I want to fully embrace the words, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” No more striving— no more want because I have everything I need in Him. There is nothing but Him that I can take with me when I leave this world so may He be my whole “want.”
I haven’t forgotten all that we did in 2020 to see our nation saved. It was beautiful and how honored I felt to be a part of it and to stand with nations that stood with us. When I asked my Heavenly Father about it, He just smiled with such a proud smile upon His face as He looked upon His faithful children. He will be exalted in the nations— that is the line that comes right after, “Be still and know that I am God.” We exalted Him and He received it all like a proud Papa. We danced, we repented, we wept and we shouted for joy…and it made Him smile— it wasn’t perfect but it made Him smile. My brother’s life wasn’t perfect but made Him smile— he knew he was perfectly loved. Your life makes Him smile and my “very imperfect” life makes Him smile. Perfect love looks good on us.
For me, 2020 was my year to learn the ways of “Be still and know that I am God” but 2021 has begun as a year to live what I’ve learned. I have become very still…maybe because of grief and maybe because of grace. Who He is has caused me to become still…HE IS GOD.
During a dream last night— that may have actually been a spiritual encounter— I was taken before the throne of God where I laid before the Lord regrets, sin and shame from issues and moments that went back twenty and thirty years ago. Many of these were things that I did not remember or had “chosen to forget” out of shame or regret in my youthfulness and immaturity. I somehow understood that these “forgotten memories” or hidden places of shortcomings, failures and sin were carrying roots of shame and regret that were still attached to my soul. They were like a debt that had chained me to a forgotten failure.
The beautiful thing was that as I brought each one before the Lord, I also brought every person that my failings had a direct result upon to be healed and set free. Though there was pain involved, there was such a beautiful release and intercession for anyone I had sinned against in my life. Though I absolutely believe that all of these sins had been forgiven long ago, the Lord (in His mercy) send an angel to usher me into a deeper place that removed the impact and harm that had come upon my soul and upon the soul of others through my past sins. It was a “jubilee for the soul!”
“…and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” Matthew 6:12
I was experiencing in this dream (or dream encounter) the cancellation of debts that had enslaved deep and hidden parts of my soul. I truly had no idea that I was carrying these old “debts.” Whether or not God saw them as debts (because He paid our debts and forgives our sins); somehow, in the deep recesses of my soul I carried them as chains (or roots) of shame.
I would normally keep an encounter like this private due to the personal nature of it but felt to share it with you because I sense that God has sent out angels to give souls a “jubilee” from regrets and debts of past failures. Again, I wasn’t even consciously aware of any of these areas nor had I even remembered most of the memories.
Since God does not remember our sins of the past that have been put under the blood of Jesus, then why did I have this encounter? I believe that it is for two reasons; the first was that these particular instances had marked my soul with a wound of shame that I was not able to deal with at the time they occurred; therefore, I received forgiveness but my soul held onto regret and shame that I needed to be set free from. The second reason is that in this dream/encounter, I was able to become aware of and intercede for all of those who “the sins of my youth” might have harmed in any way.
As I was able to bring these people before the Lord I saw angels rush to them to heal old wounds and remove spiritual scar tissue that has affected them negatively in any way; large or small. I encountered angels tending to my soul as well— to unentangle and free parts of my soul that were rooted in the shame of past sins.
God desires our freedom! Sometimes we don’t even know that we aren’t free from certain things because we’ve never experienced full freedom. Again, I had no idea that these roots of shame or regret even were buried in the recesses of my soul. Yet, just the day before I had invited God to send an angel to fully align my soul with greater freedom and greater healing.
I want to share one last thing— I did not hear or see this but there was a moment in this dream that I brought before the Lord areas of long past struggles and fears regarding provision that had caused me to make bad financial decisions (out of fear) that directly affected my family. As I brought those regrets before the Lord I had the strongest sense that many people where going to have a similar encounter that would usher in a financial jubilee as well. In December 2019 I felt that the Lord said that 2020 would be a year that many would receive their “jubilee!” I saw financial debts canceled and paid in full.
I know that my personal experience was a “jubilee of the soul” but am also expectant that we will begin to hear reports of people having a financial jubilee as well. Spiritual, emotional and financial debts will be canceled and the enslavement that is attached to “old debt” will come off; like chains falling away, so that people can walk forward in new freedom!
This is a time of reset! It is a reset for each of us personally and a reset for His people corporately. He does not want the enemy to have any inroads or access to our souls or our lives from past sins, failures, regrets or debts. He is the God of Jubilee! I declare a spiritual and financial jubilee upon each of you this day!
“This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
Yesterday our church family was blessed to have Jonathan Tremaine Thomas (JT) from Civil Righteousness with us. During our time together he shared a profound dream about this time that we are living in and then shared these words,
“Our nation is under judgement and is on the brink of another civil war where there will surely be blood in our streets. But, we need to remember that we can cry out to God the words, ‘In judgement— remember mercy!’ This is our only hope for America. Cry out for mercy!”
I fully agree with JT’s words. I believe that October is a month to “cry out for mercy” like never before. As he spoke the words I saw in my spirit people in cities across our nation marching in unity and oneness, while crying out for mercy. I saw the words, “Mercy Marches.”
My family lives in a city where the most blood was spilled in the Civil War (Fredericksburg, Virginia) and our home is located on a Civil War Battlefield. I do not believe that it is a mistake or coincidence that God moved our family across the nation in January 2020 to occupy this ground with intercession and peace. From this place we will continuously cry out for “mercy to triumph over judgement!” No longer will we be a nation of brother against brother but rather we will link arms with our brothers and sisters to “be one even as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one!”
I want to encourage you, wherever you are, to prayer walk the streets of your city, to call to the Ecclesia in your city and to bow your knee and ask God to render a verdict of mercy upon our nation. I believe that there is a short window left before we see a real life civil war break out if we do not turn the heart of God through cries of mercy.
We are seeing many initiatives in our nation that have been gathering the Ecclesia to repent, worship, return and humble ourselves to pray. We were at “The Return” in Washington D.C. (and the Franklin Graham Prayer Walk)— I could feel a shift during this time. I was with Sean Feucht in Portland, Oregon and will be again here in Washington DC on October 25th. Around the nation God’s people are striking the ground over and over. My sense is that October is the final strike to turn the tide from judgement to mercy. Let us pray and cry out like never before!
“I have heard all about you, LORD. I am filled with awe by your amazing works. In this time of our deep need, help us again as you did in years gone by. And in your anger, remember your mercy.” Habakkuk 3:2 (NLT)
God loves mercy, He loves justice and He loves America. But because of His righteous justice, He brings forth judgement. Though God never changes— did you know that His people can change His mind from executing judgement to pouring out mercy? This is a time that we, His people, can turn a nation to be “saved in a day!”
Today— cry out for mercy! Do not delay but rather raise your voice, bow your knee and walk your city to cry out for mercy. It is time for “Mercy Marches” to take place across our nation!
If you would like to organize one in your city; write to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please stand with us in prayer and financial support as we move forward to organize “Mercy Marches” throughout America.
There is such blessings released upon those who obey! When my children were young my husband and I worked hard to teach them the value and rewards of obedience. When they listened to our voices, obeying what we spoke, their lives were surrounded by saftey, pleasures, wisdom, blessings and peace. Yet, on those occasions that they would exercise their “own stubborn will” they would quickly find their souls and circumstances in turmoil. In childhood we are to learn to live a life that values obedience and wisdom so that in adulthood we can walk in covenant with God.
We can come up with a thousand different reasons that the nations are in turmoil and people are in misery but the root of it all is “broken covenant through disobedience to the voice of God.”
Jeremiah 11 gives us a great example of this,
“Tell them that this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Cursed is the one who does not obey the terms of this covenant— the terms I commanded your ancestors when I brought them out of Egypt, out of the iron-smelting furnace.’ I said, ‘Obey me and do everything I command you, and you will be my people, and I will be your God. Then I will fulfill the oath I swore to your ancestors, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey’—the land you possess today.” I answered, “Amen, Lord.”” Jeremiah 11:3-5
God is not a controlling tyrant but rather a loving and wise Father who knows what will bless those He created and what will harm them. He merely desires us to walk in blessings, life, freedom from harm, health and prosperity. He knows the path to take us there and yet many have turned away from His voice of wisdom and the blame Him for the turmoil in their lives.
Again and again throughout scripture the Lord says, “Obey My voice.” But, again and again mankind turns away from His voice to follow other gods and “the stubbornness of his evil heart (Jer. 11:8).”
We must understand that blessings follow obedience and covenant but curses follow broken covenant and disobedience. The Book of Proverbs is a manual to sons of “how to live” that make all of this known to those who desire wisdom. I love to pray for God to give me the wisdom and understanding that all of creation was formed from. If creation was formed out of God’s wisdom and understanding then it is part of the DNA of us and of the universe— therefore, it only makes sense to ask for the wisdom of God that aligns us with all of creation and our Creator.
“By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; by his knowledge the watery depths were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew. My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgment and discretion; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble. When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the Lord will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared.” Proverbs 3:19-26
It is so wise to obey! His wisdom is filled with promises and protection for your life. Wisdom is grace for you, safety to you, assurance upon you and peace around you.
God, in His great mercy, gives second chances for men and women to turn from stubborn and rebellious ways (foolish ways) so that they can come back into the grip of covenant and obedience— redeeming the blessings of covenant and breaking the curses of rebellion.
This is probably my greatest prayer for the nations, my loved ones and for my life. “Let us obey Your voice!” May the nations repent for broken covenant, for stubborn rebellion and for disobeying the voice of God. I pray that every man, woman and child would obey the voice of God and watch the blessings of wisdom and covenant restored to their lives and their land.
Cry out for wisdom! Obey His voice and watch salvation come upon every area of your life.
Will you prayerfully consider sowing a financial gift into this ministry? We are in a critical time in our assignment here in the Washington DC region and need your support more than ever.
During a time of worship I heard the Lord say to me,
“I’m opening up chambers of revelation. These heavenly rooms are open to My sons and daughters.”
I understood that within these chambers were mysteries, wisdom, supplies and experiences that would be impossible to understand before this time. Within them His people will experience the “more than they can ask or imagine (Eph 3:20)”.
I sense that the opening of these chambers will reveal mysteries that we have not understood before this time. These chambers were created for this kairos time on earth.
The chambers are now open; rooms of healing, rooms where disorder comes into order, rooms filled with blueprints for inventions, rooms with new sounds and new songs, governmental rooms, war rooms with strategic plans and orders, revelation rooms and rooms where intimacy releases secrets that will be entrusted to the bride…creation rooms. Lives will change within these chambers.
I saw a room that I can only describe as a “time chamber”. Within this chamber words that had been spoken in past times were now words. I saw callings, mantels and assignments that were not fulfilled or lived out by lives that had passed awaiting for “such a time as this”. As God’s people entered this chamber these could be brought forth and for lack of a better word, re-activated. Old things were like fresh manna within this room. There is no “past” in this room; only NOW or Kairos time.
“The One who builds His upper chambers in the heavens And has founded His vaulted dome over the earth, He who calls for the waters of the sea And pours them out on the face of the earth, The LORD is His name.” Amos 9:6
We have access to these new Heavenly upper chambers. Creation continues to expand in these chambers and what is contained within these rooms can be brought to earth.
“One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.” Psalm 27:4
Gaze on His beauty, seek His wisdom and ask Him to take you to these new chambers.
As we have now entered the Fall season— a time of celebrations, family and harvest— we are inviting you to become a part of our family by becoming one of our ministry partners through prayer and financial support. We, in turn, commit to praying for your family, home and harvest.
The Lord showed me people who were lying in bed with their minds filled with anxious thoughts that led them to conclusions of dread and doom for the days ahead. But the Father came to comfort them saying,
“Do not fear, do not worry, and do not dread the days ahead for I will do for you what you cannot do for yourself. You can trust me.”
As the people responded in confident trust, the gripping fear washed away and peace restored them to rest in His promises.
If you are being driven by fear and anxious thoughts then the Lord wants you to hear His words of truth and words of hope. He is not unaware of what you are facing and He will do for you what you cannot do for yourself.
Your sleepless nights that lead your thoughts down dead-end roads and hopeless prospects are being exchanged for the deep sleep of a baby in its mother’s arms and the thoughts that bring your hopes into a vast space with abundance before you.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
You will lie down in peace and wake up in joy because the Lord has taken up your cause! Though you have not been able to find your way though the tangled net that you are caught in, watch now: the Lord will rescue you.
I declare peace over you, peace over your mind and peace over your body. Though you don’t feel adequate or able to find your way out of the place that you find yourself in, know this: He is able to rescue you!
“Such is the confidence and steadfast reliance and absolute trust that we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficiently qualified in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency and qualifications come from God.” 2 Corinthians 3:4-5 AMP
Christ qualifies you for success, for breakthrough and for a positive outcome. It is in yielding your life to the place of “absolute reliance and trust through Christ toward God” that your confidence is restored and you are saved.
Have you ever seen a wild deer caught in barbed wire fencing? It will flail in fear only to find itself held tighter in the snare’s grip. When rescuers come to free the deer they must hold it still in order to free it and keep it from greater harm. The Lord is holding you still and cutting away the barbs and snares that you find yourself caught in. Do not fear for He is with you and freeing you from the tangled snare that you are caught in. He will heal your wounds and He will do for you what you cannot do for yourself!
Be calm, be still and watch to see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf.
Will you help us in September through December? We are asking if you will stand with us by sowing a financial gift into our ministry in September, November and December. We have a strong assignment from the Lord for our nation over the next three months and need those who will partner with us to support the financial side of these assignments. We know that the reward is the same for those who “go” and those who “sow.”
We live in a glorious land filled with rocky mountains, green valleys, rolling hills and blooming deserts.
We have beautiful diversity in our people, places and languages.
We have known the freedom of speech, the freedom to worship and freedom to make personal choices. How blessed we have been.
Our pledge of allegiance declares that we are “One Nation Under God” and our currency reads “In God We Trust”…but America— we have divided our nation from the One we claimed to love.
God has looked for those who will stand in the gap of this great divide to pray– to repent– to turn back and to bow low.
Here we are!
Forgive us Lord. Forgive us for trading— Mercy for mammon Grace for greed Freedom for captivity Trust for tyranny Unity for division And- love for hate.
It is said that “United we stand, divided we fall” We are falling, oh God! We have divided from you and now freedom is falling, liberty is lacking and unity is unseen.
Our divided history has resurfaced, the secret societies have been revealed and the hidden agendas are now exposed for all to see. We are naked, we are cold and we need you!
God have mercy!
Those who still call upon your name, who put their trust in you and who know that you are our only hope now bow down.
We bow down in sorrow, we bow down in worship, we bow down in repentance and we bow down in prayer. We humble ourselves before the you— the great I Am.
Unless the Lord builds a house then all is vanity— forgive us for the vain and the profane. You are the only foundation that stands— therefore, we bow down and declare to the foundations of America, “Come back to the Rock that is higher than you! Return to the One who died for you!”
We bow low that you may be lifted high. Higher than our mountains, higher than our might, higher than our lofty thoughts. We declare, “Not by our might, not by our power but only by your Spirit shall we be saved!”
Forgive us for turning away from truth, turning from the one true way, turning from peace, turning from blessing, turning away from covenant and turning away from you.
We stand in the gap as representatives of this nation called the United States of America and we turn back to you! We declare that we are one nation under God and that our trust is in you alone. We declare true liberty from the captivity of sin for all. We declare your justice for every person of every color. We bridge the great divide with our repentance and our declaration of allegiance to you!
We love your Word, we love your ways and we surrender all to you today. Jesus, you are our King, our Lord, our Savior and our God. In you we trust and in you we put our confident hope. We run to you.
Forgive us, heal us and unite us in the oneness that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit share and have given to us. The blood of Jesus speaks a better word!
God Bless America— the land that we love. Stand beside us and guide us through the night with the light from above.
Thank you to all who have stood with our ministry in prayer and financial support as we have moved to the Washington DC region to pray for our nation. Your sacrifice is greatly appreciated by us and it is seen by God.
