CASTING DOWN DARKNESS #2

Published January 17, 2013 by Sunny Rowe

Isaiah 9:7 NKJV. Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

OUR PRAYER:  We gather together to lift our voices as one to plead for our nation!  Lord, hear our cries and lead us into this spiritual battle.  We rebuke the enemy from oppression of the government and the people, and we bind the enemy in Jesus’ name.  Send forth your waring angels, O Lord and help us to break the jaw of the enemy and to tear down the fortress of the enemy.  Help us to go lower than any sin and pray it lose that it may be cast into the everlasting fires.  Let us go so far from east to west that there is no beginning nor ending to our prayers, O Lord. And let us lift our voices higher and higher into Your throne room.  Let us wreak havoc on every evil plan.  We beg that you cast down every vain imagination of the enemy.  Let us shout and claim the victory in You, Our Lord and Savior, as you break the chains that bind our nation!  In Jesus’ name, Amen~

GOD TEST US!

We must look in entirety at this ARTICLE VI, as it has three distinct directives, and none of them number. That means the congress did not feel it necessary to specify or clarify it any further. That is is fully understandable as it is.

All Debts contracted and Engagements entered into, before the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.

All Debts contracted and Engagements entered into, before the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land

No religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

No religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

This freedom from any religious test applies all the way from the Presidency down to local school boards. In the First Amendment to the Constitution, we are promised that there shall be “no law respecting an establishment of religion”.

This means that religious participation or abstinence shall have equal consideration as it pertains to the law of the land.  There is no confinement to the types of religious participation or abstinence.  This means that whether we choose to participate in religious activities or not, we have the freedom of choice in both cases, and in no event shall participation or lack of participation be tested by law.

The Constitution was clearly established under God.  But the open-ended Article VI Paragraph 3, and the ensuing First Amendment have left the door open and is causing the riffles in our society as pertains  to “In God We Trust”, and display of Christian and all other types of religious proclamations in Government and “public” places.  This does not affect privately held land.  And the people still have the right to vote on the public land issues.

OUR PRAYER:  Dear Lord we come to You today with a better understanding of the uphill battle that lies before us.  We know there are men in Congress who are working to have the “freedom of worship” ratified, just as there are those who are seeking to have the “freedom from worship” fully enacted.  Lord, we just don’t know how to pray or where to begin on this, other than laying it at Your feet, seeking Your wisdom and letting You lead the way.  We know, Father is Christians do not rise up, the next step will be for unbelievers to eradicate Christianity completely from this country.  We prostrate ourselves before You, as our hearts race in anxiety.  Calm us, O Lord, and show us Your way so that we may be an everlasting light for You in this land You have given to us.  We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen!

THIS IS MY COUNTRY

Published January 6, 2013 by Sunny Rowe

This is my country, land of my birth. This is my country, greatest on earth! I pledge thee my allegiance, America the bold. For this is my country, to have and to hold. In God we trust! For we open our arms to to all who come to our shores, according to the mandates of the US Constitution, willing to help make this land, your land, under God. For this is God’s country, and under God this is our country, to have and to hold for freedom for all generations!

God shed His grace on thee~

Mark 13:31-37 [NKJV]. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.  Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is.  It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch.  Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming–in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning–  lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping.  And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!

OUR PRAYER:  Lord, our God, Maker of heaven and earth, in whom all hope resides, and from whom all blessings of freedom come, we humble ourselves before You today, and bow down at Your feet. We plead for our country, and the people You have allowed to come to our shores. All nationalities, all religions, Lord because we believe You when You teach us that all things work for the good for those who believe in You.  We turned our faces from You, O Lord and hid Your words from our hearts. You did not create this havoc in our land, this land You gave us and blessed with freedom. The decay began within when we began to place ourselves higher than You, O Lord.  Believing the old lie from the Garden.  We keep repeating the same Adam and Eve transgression, and now we hide from You, naked as You call out to us:  Adam! Where are you?  Ahhh, Lord my spirit groans within me, and my eyes are filled with tears I cannot shed. My heart aches to breaking.  Shine Your light on our path, O Lord, and let the whole world see.  Let us lift up Your standard and serve only You, Lord.  Teach us Your ways; discipline us and have mercy on our next generations. We beg that You do not hold them accountable for our sins, dear Father. Help us to restore this land to You, O Lord, not for us but for our children’s children for all time. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen~

SWEET LAND OF LIBERTY

Published January 5, 2013 by Sunny Rowe

My country ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring.

Our fathers’ God to thee, author of liberty, to thee we sing. Long may our land be bright with freedom’s holy light, protect us by Thy might, Great God our King.

God shed His grace on thee~

God shed His grace on thee~

Psalm 119:45 NKJV.  And I will walk at liberty, For I seek Your precepts.

1 Corinthians 8:9 NKJV.  But beware lest somehow this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak.

Galatians 2:4 NKJV.  And this occurred because of false brethren secretly brought in (who came in by stealth to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage)..

Galatians 5:13 NKJV.  For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

2 Peter 2:19 NKJV.   While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage.

OUR PRAYER:  Our Father, our Author of Liberty we claim these scriptures today, and write them in our hearts. O Lord, You knew and foretold so long ago that mankind would turn against those who are weaker, poorer, sicker and lacking the power of another, with the intent of enslaving them.  Lord, our country cried out against slavery 150 years ago, that all slavery end.  But we refused to listen to Your very words, that when a slave is set free, he is free indeed.  And now have allowed another form of slavery of self-interest to entice us and draw us in, causing us to turn our face from you.  Forgive us, O Lord, and hear our cries. We bow down before You and seek Your mercy, not Your justice.  For Your justice would surely find us guilty, and wanting, which is what we are.  And we should expect nothing more than Your swift arm of judgement  against us.  For we became lazy, feeling entitled, and wanted none of You.  Yet, we know You are a loving and merciful God.  Let us come sit with You awhile to hear You,  O Lord, as You teach us, again.   We ask You to bend Your ear to our pleas. In Jesus’ name. Amen~

OUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED

Published January 3, 2013 by Sunny Rowe

Before we begin to look at amendments to the Constitution, let us pray for the foundation on which our country was established. The Constitution has several articles set down in 1787, and yet today much of what happens in the government is predicated on constitutional law. We must pray to keep our Constitution safe from the ravages of self interested people who would tear it apart.  We must understand what we are praying for.  These are the articles, and we should cover them daily in our prayers:

  1. ARTICLE I.  All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.
  2. ARTICLE II.  The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.  He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected.
  3. ARTICLE III.  The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. 
  4. ARTICLE IV.  Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State.  And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.
  5. ARTICLE V.  The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments..
  6. ARTICLE VI.  [This is a big one and will be addressed tomorrow].
  7. ARTICLE VII.  The Ratification of the Conventions of nine States, shall be sufficient for the Establishment of this Constitution between the States so ratifying the Same.

This means that the constitution was drawn up specifically to safeguard the rights people as listed in the Preamble.  The Preamble clearly set the guideline that the government works for the people, not the people for the government.  The Constitution cannot legally be changed or amended without 3/4 ratification of congress.  This is God’s promise to us, in this promised land of milk and honey.  Just like the laws of Leviticus, which were amended with the 10 Commandments, so is this land established by God, and claimed for God. That is why “In God We Trust” became our inscription. Should the government forget this, then we Christians must make sure the government is reminded. We must not be as lambs led to the slaughter.  But how can we pray for and stand for our constitutional rights, if we don’t really know what they are?  The answer is simple.  We can’t.

When we are praying for a specific purpose, we must know not just God’s word, but the legal premise promised by God when the Constitution was established.  For example, when we pray “Lord, let there be no suffering…” are we praying according to the will of God, and how do we know?  We only know, when we know His word:  James 5:13[NKJ]. Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray.

So what, then can we do about suffering?  Praise God for His mercy, thank Him for His many blessings and miracles and ask for His divine intervention. Not according to how we think it should be done, but according to His will.  He is not the enemy, He is our savior, our rescuer and counselor.

Isaiah 35:4 NKJV.   Say to those who are fearful-hearted, “Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, With the recompense of God; He will come and save you.

OUR PRAYER: Lord, we come to you in prayer for our country, lifting our U.S. Constitution into your safe keeping for yet another day.  Thank you, Lord for this wonderful land you have given us, and forgive us for our apathy and laziness in keeping it fresh and beautiful, free of darkness and terror as You have commanded us to do. Rise up O Lord!  Stretch your legs out O Lion of Judah and lead us in this spiritual warfare!   Hear our cries, and help us to be strong in battle, even at this 11th hour.  Give us wisdom to understand the precepts upon which You, O Lord established this great land.  Give us eager eyes and ears to see and hear what we have turned away from for so long – the responsibility for keeping You, O Lord in command of this country.  Let us discover in our hearts that freedom is a gift only You can give, so it needs to be sheltered beneath  your wings.  We thank you for this gift.  Bless us as we serve you.  We ask in Jesus’ name. Amen~

PRAYER: WE THE PEOPLE

Published January 2, 2013 by Sunny Rowe

U.S. CONSTITUTION – PREAMBLE

“WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES IN ORDER TO FORM A MORE PERFECT UNION, ESTABLISH JUSTICE, INSURE DOMESTIC TRANQUILITY, PROVIDE FOR THE COMMON DEFENSE, PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE, AND SECURE THE BLESSINGS OF LIBERTY TO OURSELVES AND OUR POSTERITY, DO ORDAIN AND ESTABLISH THIS CONSTITUTION FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.”

God shed His grace on thee~

God shed His grace on thee~

There can be no better way for us to go into battle than to pray for every word of the U.S. Constitution, which was established to provide protected safety and security for every individual; to ensure liberty in our pursuit of Christian beliefs, and to welcome others to our shore as a haven.

Psalm 146:7 NKJV.Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry. The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners.

OUR PRAYER.  Lord, Let us never forget that this land was settled and established by Christians, people who believed in Jesus Christ as our Lord; people who gave their hearts, souls and  their very lives that this nation might live and serve as a sanctuary to believers everywhere.  Let us never forget the hardships they faced to come to this land of milk and honey, that they might make new lives for themselves; that they might worship You in truth and freedom. We often don’t understand the strict countenance of those Puritans, Lord, but it was Your will that they be first, as settlers and in establishing our land beneath Your standard. With passion in their hearts to serve and honor You, O Lord, they raised Your standard high and thought it not beneath them to bow to you at every test.  We know that today many scoff at their strictness, and many ask where the spirit of the Lord was with these Puritans.  You know where the Spirit was Lord, for these were a hard working, hard praying people who had the grit to establish the cornerstone  this magnificent empire, in Your name. Let us not scorn our predecessors, Lord, but let us praise you for showing them the way; let us praise them for their endurance and let us praise that this noble country was established by Christians, to show the Your love to the world. We have forgotten, sadly. We come humbly before you, asking your forgiveness, Father for our shortcomings – for handing our country over to the enemy. Lord, we ask that you let us begin anew, by once again raising Your standard higher than ever before. Show us. Lead us. And bless us and the works of our hands, the meditations of our hearts and words from our lips.  Let Your love shine from each of into the darkness.We must shout the victory!  Be with us Lord, as we proclaim every day as the Day of the Lord for our nation. Lord, let Your freedom ring! We plead at Your feet, in Jesus’ name. Amen~

 

WE ARE READY, LORD,  DRESSED IN YOUR FULL ARMOR. WE AWAIT YOUR COMMAND! HEAR OUR CRY, O LORD AND LEAD US INTO THE BATTLE OF VICTORY! IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN!

PRAYER: PEACE IN THE LAND

Published January 1, 2013 by Sunny Rowe

Leviticus 26:6 [NKJV].  I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none will make you afraid; I will rid the land of evil beasts, and the sword will not go through your land.

Hear our battle cry, O Lord and let a new dawn break over our land~

Hear our battle cry, O Lord and let a new dawn break over our land~

Lord  we come before you today to pray for our country. Your word has spoken, and told us that if we refused to turn from our wicked ways; if we refused to make this land holy for Your name, that the land would spew us out.  Your promises are always true, God, and we trust in You. Let out voices ring throughout the heavens as we bow before You, asking Your blessing in this battle.  We plead our cause, O Lord, that You might give us strength in reserve for the battle.  That  You bless us with wisdom to seek the enemy and destroy his strongholds. We plead for unquenchable thirst for the Kingdom of Heaven, for the joy of Your well spring of life. We ask for a fierce blood thirst against the things of darkness, a passion so strong that we do not hesitate to come against it. O Lord, bind our wounds as we battle, give us diligent hearts.  We humbly ask for Your hand of blessing upon our heads as we begin this warfare.   We put our trust in You, and seek peace for our land, that it will be a land where people aren’t afraid of the leader we voted into power.  We want to break the chains that bind our government and our nation, and plead Your mercy. Send Your heavenly army to come to our aid, and forgive us for our wrongs. Give us a heart of forgiveness for those who are bound in the chains of the enemy. 

We are ready, Lord.  We are girded and dressed in armor.  We await Your command, Lord.  Hear our cry, O Lord and lead us into the battle. In Jesus’ name. Amen~
