It is easy to see the real threat before us. The intelligence apparatus of the state has become a tool of politics. The mainstream media has created an unrestricted capacity to propagandize using narratives that paint ordinary citizens as our enemies. As we are continually bombarded by confusing and contradictory messages, we have the one weapon available to us that can defeat them all…PRAYER! Every home needs to become a laboratory of prayer. Pray for our President. Pray for those in leadership. YES…I said pray for our leaders. Pray that the scales will be removed from their eyes and the darkness in their hearts will be shattered by the light of God's truth. It is time to focus on your state and press into the battle in the heavens. Isaiah 59:19 promises us that "when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift a standard against it.” This paints a rich picture of God riding in to defend His people against overwhelming odds and unspeakable evil. Even amid uncertainty and craziness, we can be confident that as we stand united in prayer and committed to the truth, our God will fulfill His promise in Romans 8:28, knowing that “all things work together for good to those who love God, and those that are called according to His purpose.”
IT IS TIME TO BE BOLD. It is time to pray that the fear and misinformation surrounding our lives and our nation will be replaced with the hope and truth of the Gospel. Since the pandemic and past election, it feels that the promoters of nationwide riots, Cancel Culture, and Critical Race Theory are winning. It seems that we no longer have leaders that have a firm foundation of faith. It is up to you and me to be that "voice in the wilderness." ARE YOU READY? It is time for The Church to use this weapon of prayer to defeat the enemy of darkness. It is time to DEPLOY THE WEAPONS OF PRAYER AND PERSUASION. We should never seek to rule over people. Still, we can resist the devil and upend his dominion through prayer and persuasion. We can persuade kings, influence rulers, impact governments, and transform the lives of people and nations under these governments. Christians can and should shape culture in EVERY sphere. Our weapons are spiritual and will manifest themselves through faithful prayers and the power of persuasion. WE ARE CALLED TO BE SALT AND LIGHT. Both salt and light have properties that affect things around them. For example, salt is used to enhance flavor and as a preservative. To 'be salt' means deliberately seeking to influence the people in one's life by showing them the unconditional love of Christ through good deeds (Matthew 5:13-16). OUR NEXT BIG BATTLE will be to unseat those in leadership who are only driven by self-interest and power. It is time for us to rise as a united body of believers and elect righteous people to our local and national offices in 2022. Are we willing to suffer for doing good? Are you ready to let your good works shine before men? It is time for us to restore salt and light to our nation before it is trodden under the feet of unrighteous men and women! It is time for radical believers to pray radical prayers!
