National Day of Prayer

The National Day of Prayer, to be observed the first Thursday of May, as per an Acts of Congress, in 1988, will be held in cities, towns, and small communities all across this country May 6th, this year.

Col. 2:
8. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit (empty lies), after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
9. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
11. In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
12. Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
13. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
14. Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
15. And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
16. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
17. Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
18. Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
19. And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.
20. Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
21. (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
22. Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?

What should we pray for? How about the people of God openly pray for, and demand, that every so called preacher-bishop-pastor of the Christian faith teach/preach the Word of God without man made traditions attached? That the bible take precedent over the ministerial fellowship's manual? That deceivers, and infiltrators, enemies of the cross be exposed, and that God would grant them repentance, so they would preach repentance, baptism in Jesus name for the remission of sins, and the infilling of the Holy Ghost, which is promised to all true believers (Acts 2:38-39). We should pray for forgiveness for our own lack of commitment to the word of God as the final authority for all things in our lives, and truly repent!

The church should show without apology or hesitation that Jesus is the ALMIGHTY CREATOR GOD, He that WAS AND IS, AND IS TO COME. Not some New Age Nimrod-anti-Christ who is about to appear and claim to be he who was and is ... the one we were awaiting to re-appear.

Rev.1: 8. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Only Jesus Christ can honestly say that, but I fear another will come saying that before the real Jesus comes. Beware.

John 1:
1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2. The same was in the beginning with God.
3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Heb. 1:
1. God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2. Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3. Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Pray that Jesus would push back the darkness in your community. That the truth be declared in your community. Pray that a grass roots Christianity rise up demanding to be heard at least as well as the false doctrines of Islam, evolution, etc. Our federal government (remember, we are NOT a democracy- but a republic) may not put one religion above another, but that means they can't put one below another either. Christianity's voice should be unfettered, fearless, and loud in the marketplace. Christians in a republic can still demand they are represented by those upholding Christian values and freedoms! Pray for the boldness to refuse to be cowed by the liars, deceivers who would try to silence us. Pray that God would shine His light on and in the heart of ALL our politicians, and leaders in all our communities exposing those who purposely have aligned themselves with the enemies of Jesus. We may not turn them, but at least they won't be free to insidiously try to turn us away from the ONE TRUE GOD. Jesus Christ of Nazareth!
