Prayer and Personal Action


Dutch Sheets shares what others are saying post-election, and how he feels about it HERE

Wendy Alec of God TV speaks of, and prays for, a changing of direction and policies, a healing of rifts, wisdom for our President, and more HERE.

Tomorrow is Let's Pray Tuesday.  I hope that you will join me in praying for our nation, our President and leaders, our friends and neighbors, and whoever and whatever else God lays on your heart to pray for.  If you have not read George Washington's Prayer, I would highly suggest it.

Personal Action

Now that the election is over it is time for us to look within and determine what God is calling us to do in the larger picture of preparing the way for the Lord to return.  What can we do to share the gospel with those who are outcast, hungry, and thirsty?  Why don't we meet them at their point of need, as Jesus has modeled for us in the New Testament?  God's purpose for us is bigger than getting a man elected.  God calls us to live out His will in our every day lives.  How are we sharing His truth and love today?  Give and it shall be given unto you.  God has put personal charity on my heart lately.  If we believe in small government we must do what God has called us to do!

Suggestion: Check out the Charity section on my LINKS page for ideas, or contact your church or local charity organization to see if there is a ministry you could get involved in.  Let's share God's love, person to person!

Matthew 25 NIV

31“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. 32All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
41“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
44“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
45“He will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
46“Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
