Pray for President Trump and Country – There Are Evil Spirits at Work

Prayer for Trump and Country

In the last couple of weeks there has been incredible undue pressure on President Trump. Many in the media and on the Democratic side, and a few Republicans, are constantly at odds with him for such little things—like his tweeting.  And they are constantly suspicious of him about things that there is no proof of. And now many are even calling for his impeachment. It is obvious that many just don’t like him.  And it is also obvious that there are evil spirits at work, working to stir such evil hatred against him.

Please, I call on all true Christians to pray.

Let us pray for President Trump: that he would humble himself and seek God; that he would call on Him and trust Him for help. Then pray that indeed our Father would grant him help, comfort, strength, wisdom, and great courage in these trying days.

Pray also…

Hollywood Shows its Evil Side in Cancelling ‘Last Man Standing’

Prayer for Trump and Country

The recent canning of ‘Last Man Standing’ shows all Americans what Hollywood is up to—what their values are. Why would they dismiss a show that has such high ratings and is making Hollywood tons of money? It makes no sense—unless Hollywood has an even bigger agenda than money.

The answer is that Hollywood’s true agenda is to form the culture of America. And the culture they want is something other than what ‘Last Man Standing’ is offering.

The show is all about the last manly man trying to survive in this overly feminized world, staring a Christian conservative Tim Allen. Understandably, Tim Allen is very upset…and so should all Americans be. This world is going to the Devil and Hollywood is playing a big part in it.

Christian, watch what you watch on TV! Many things are programed by the Devil to destroy you and your Christian witness.

Trump: Doing what God has Prepared him to Do – Genesis 50:20

Prayer for Trump and Country

I thought Donald Trump’s book, The Art of the Deal, was fascinating.

In the last few lines he wrote, “The biggest challenge I see over the next twenty years is to figure out some creative ways to give back some of what I’ve gotten…In my life, there are two things I’ve found I’m very good at: overcoming obstacles and motivating good people to do their best work.

I see this all happening now. His service as president is what he has been preparing for his whole life. And don’t we see that he is so good at overcoming many obstacles and also motivating good people to do their best work. We can give praise to God for preparing this man to serve in such an evil time as this.

Though many people are against him, I believe God has been preparing him for this job as president; and he…

God’s Design for Group Prayer

 

We are all of one body (the body of Christ), with Christ as our head; therefore, it is our designed purpose to be united, and thus to live together in unity for the purposes that God has planned for us. One of the ways that unity takes form is through group prayer. Accordingly, one of the great purposes for our unity and for united prayer is to strengthen our faith.  And this is exactly what happens: when each group member hears the Spirit-filled prayers of others, they experience God’s presence, and the Holy Spirit stirs their hearts to believe in Him more fully.

Henceforth, as we believe in Him, and likewise learn to love Him, He will come along side of us and deliver us from fear. Hence, the promise “perfect love casts out fear” is confirmed to us when we pray together in love (1 Jn. 4:18).

But there is more to group prayer than being personally delivered from fear. Spirit-filled group prayer will actually produce or summon the power of God to make our prayers more effective.  In fact, I believe that when believers pray together in unity, prayers will be more powerful and more effective than individual prayer.  Why?  Because when Christians pray together with one mind and heart, the faith of each believer is added to the faith of the others, so that there is more faith and more power.  And along with faith there is also more love and more hope.  Each one receives it from each other, but knows it is from God.  It branches out through each group member to each group member.  Each one is linked to another, and they, all together, receive the power of God.  Each one, we could say, is like a spark plug; when we all spark together (in the right order and in unity) we generate the power of God (or we could say, we get the Holy Spirit moving) to answer our united prayers to the glory of God.

But you say, is there any real proof of the power of group prayer? Yes there is.  We have the undeniable, historical record of it.  When the early church prayed together with one accord in the Spirit many were brought to salvation (Acts 2:47), many were filled with the Spirit and were given God’s power to speak with boldness (Acts 4:31), and some were miraculously delivered (e.g. Peter, Acts 12:5-19).

So this is what I see as God’s design for group prayer. Now how can we best practice it?  What is God’s idea for how we should pray together?  As I see it, there are two main parts to group prayer: the leader and His leadership, and the other members.  The leader has a particular role to play, and the members have a role to play.  When each plays his or her role as God has designed, then group prayer will be successful.

 

So first of all, how does the group leader best lead? What things does he do to make a successful prayer group?

(1) He plans the time and the place of the meeting. He is also responsible for the details of the meeting; he takes the time to plan such things as the Bible study, singing, sharing, and the prayer time.  And I think it is important in his planning that he makes prayer the primary focus; therefore, he must plan ample time for prayer, and structure all other activities around the prayer time so that prayer gets the spotlight.

(2) He prepares a Bible study for the meeting. In the prayer groups that I have led I have found that when I have taken sufficient time to prepare a Bible study, the prayer meetings were more productive.  I think it is so important whenever we pray to first open the Word.  If we take the time to study and think on the Word before we pray, prayers will be much more God-directed and Spirit-filled.

(3) He will lead each activity of the meeting.  And in his leadership he will always show a spirit of love and acceptance to each member, seeking to serve them and not to lord it over them.

 

How does each group member play his or her role?

(1) He or she submits to the leader and to the Holy Spirit; if members are rebellious and self-willed, unity will be lost.

(2) Each member is attentive to the Holy Spirit and therefore prays according to the Spirit’s leading. If any member has wandering thoughts and is not committed to prayer and to God, then he will bring disunity to the group and will hinder what God wants to accomplish.

(3) Each member shows respect and love to one another. The most successful prayer groups have developed a lasting love for each other.  When you pray for each other in your group, remember those requests and continue to pray over them during the week.  Be committed to love each other, and God will bring His power to your group.

Trump in Danger: Much Prayer Needed

Prayer for Trump and Country

 

President Trump’s life is in danger. Prayer is critical for his safety and security.

According to reports from Monica Crowley, Liberal forces are looking to destroy him and put him in prison. They are saying Trump must not be allowed to succeed. Many (like the ACLU and like George Soros) have raised millions to impeach him.

Yes, liberals and evil forces have an agenda for this world and they will stop at nothing to achieve it. They want everything that Donald Trump is not. They want a globalist; they want open boarders; they want tolerance for all without law and order; and they want to stifle all those who speak and act contrary to their agenda.

Here is a prayer for protection against the wicked, which David wrote and prayed for himself. We can pray this prayer for President Trump and for all those who are on his team.

Trump: Busy Doing the Prep Work for America

Pray for divine protection for Trump and his cabinet as they do the work of government. Pray against all the forces of evil that they will be confused in the evil work and will not be able to come against the will of God. Just as Nehemiah was able to finish the building of the wall in 52 days and to bring badly needed reform to Israel, pray that God will help this president to accomplish all his goals and to establish the work of God for America.

Prayer for Trump and Country

 

I’m a house painter. I know all about prep work. Before you can start painting a house to make it look beautiful, you have to do the prep work. And  if the house has been badly neglected—for let’s say 8 years—it will take longer to do the prep work of washing, scraping, patching, sanding, caulking, and priming, etc.

For this first 100 days, our president has been doing prep work—things that need to be done so that we can start the task of building and decorating, to make America great. For the past decade or so, things in the White House, in the government, and in the country, have been going south. I mean things have not only been neglected, but Obama has been purposely (it seems) putting our country in reverse—making it almost impossible to set things in order. He has…

Four Prayer Principles from the Lord’s Prayer

 

Regard these four point as instructions on prayer from Jesus Himself.

 

1. Pray with priority

Jesus taught us to pray, “Hallowed be Your name; Your kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” When you are praying over your list, keep this priority in mind. As I have already mentioned above, all of our prayers ought to be ultimately for Him. If you do not include this great prayer in your prayer list, be sure that it is imprinted in the back of your mind, so that all the requests that you are offering up to God are for His honor, His will, and His kingdom.

 

2. Pray each day for the needs of that day

Jesus taught us to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.” It seems clear to me that what Jesus was teaching is that we ought to live one day at a time, and that we should not worry about tomorrow. Therefore, prayers are to be offered up each day, mainly for that day, trusting God to feed us and provide for us just as He provides for the animals and for all of His creation (Matt. 6:26).

Oh, we should think ahead, and pray ahead, and make plans; but we must not think that that is the end of it, that we need not pray anymore, that we can just sit back and trust God to carry out our plans.  No!  We can make plans for the future, but God will have the final say in what happens (Prov. 19:21).  He has His own plans for us and He wants us to be dependent on Him each day.  And that is why we need to pray each day, so that we can receive help from Him to fit into His plans and to give us what we need for that day (Read Psalms 23 with the idea of daily dependence on Him).

 

3. Pray each day to be cleansed of sin

Unconfessed sin and prayer do not go together. David said in Psalms 66:18, “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.” Before you go to prayer you must make sure that you are not harboring sin in your heart and that you are not carrying bitterness in your heart against anyone.  God will not hear your prayers unless you have a pure heart.  You must forgive your offender and ask God to forgive your sins.  We ought to make it a habit to pray every day as Jesus taught us, “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors” (Matt. 6:12; also Matt. 6:14 and 1Jn. 1:9).

 

4. Pray for God’s leading and protection

The last thing Jesus taught us to pray from The Lord’s Prayer is, “And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” I think it is a good practice to make this request our last request when we pray in the morning.  When we go out into the world we need His leading and protection.

What this request actually teaches us is to pray that God would not lead us into any situation where there are trials that would be too difficult for us to bear under, or any temptations to difficult to resist. We are to pray that He would make a way for us to escape from every trial and from every temptation (1 Cor. 10:13), that He would be our strength and armor so that we would be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Sometimes in my prayer time I pray over Ephesians 6:10-18 and pray on each of the pieces of armor Paul lists there.  If you have the time in the morning to do this I think it’s a good practice.  I recommend it also for evening prayers.  In the evening when we are tired the devil will try to take advantage of us and get into our thoughts.  So don’t take your armor off in the evening before you go to bed.  Keep your armor on all through the night and God will protect you.  If you struggle with temptation in the evening and at night, make a special effort to keep it on. I would recommend, before you go to bed, that you pray for His protection—that is, pray on the armor of God.
