Today, ( December 26, 2009) my cousin sent me a message from his Blackberry with a joke on it about terrorists trying to blow up a plane coming into Detroit. The first thing I thought was: “I don’t ever remember that happening.” I thought he was talking about 911. I wrote him back to tell him the devil is defeated foe but I had no idea what was going down. He’s pretty bright so I started investigating.
That’s when I found out that it was a bad day for Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab a Nigerian engineering student who is reportedly Muslim and supposedly acting on orders from Al Quaeda attempting to make his own bom and was burned and thrown down by fellow passengers.
That plan was thwarted due to prayer. I specifically have been in on such a prayer for the entire Metro Detroit area and the airways and by ways. Multitudes of others have as well.
When I read the whole story…I couldn’t help but thank God for thwarting yet another plan by misguided people.
We as prayer warriors, expect and believe God to move on our prayers! He is not about to let anyone take over our land. Not on our watch! Everyday God is sending people with bolder faith and stronger and stronger spirits into our ranks. We are pushing ourselves to the next level of Thanksgiving, prayer and fasting and of course praise. We are (re) energizing our commitments to excellence and obedience.

One of the things that “they say” the terrorists hate about the Western world is the fast pace, the moral decay and the lack of a God centered life amongst many. Unfortunately, their efforts to annilate us and condemn us does not show the love of God according to Christian standards. Has the United States gone too far in terms of meddling in foreign lands? They seem to think so. I do not. It does not mean that I love war, but I do feel that Israel is to be protected. It is Holy land and nothing can make me think less than to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. I will not compromise my values on this and no decent Christian can compromise; that is unless you do not believe the bible.
I do not like the example set by many celebrities; they set poor examples for our youth because many do not feel that God will judge them. I am thankful that we do serve a God who has laid down the law and those that do violate the law and fail to repent will face the wrath of God including those who think that God has called them to judge. I leave the task to God. I am thankful that a multitude of the wicked will be awakened in the days ahead as we pray for revival to breakout throughout this land!
1Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?
2The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.
3For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.
4The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.
5His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
6He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity.
7His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity.
8He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.
9He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.
10He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
11He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it.
12Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.
13Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it.
14Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.
15Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none.
16The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.
17LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
18To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.
Do you have a prayer life? If you do…it’s time to take it to the next level. God is looking for watchmen to hold up the hedge. Thank YOu FAther for touching hearts right now.
Thank You that even Muslims will see YOur way and not be fooled that they are worshipping You. They are not.
15For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. 17I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[a] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, 20which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. Ephesians 1: 15-23
