Prayer Time, America

I realize that there are good Rotts who are non-believers. I also know that there are a lot of Rotts who DO believe, so I just wanted to share a verse. Non-believers are free to skip this thread.

“14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” II Chronicles 7:14

Seems like good advice this weekend.

    Pagan or not, there’s no reason not to enjoy good verse. I may prefer the earned rewards of Valhalla to the gift of Heaven, but that doesn’t mean I don’t respect your faith and ways as well – and wisdom is wisdom.

    Blessed be.

    I am a direct descendant of Sir Thomas Wyatt, Protestant martyr — he raised an army of 4,000 men to ride into London to force Queen Mary to break her betrothal to the Catholic Phillip of Spain, who was burning Protestant and Jewish martyrs at the stake in the Inquisition. My great-to-the-nth grandfather was greatly afraid that Mary would start burning the English Protestants (he was right about that, as it turned out). Alas, he was taken prisoner, his army dispersed, and he was taken to the Tower of London, given a show trial, and tortured at length to try to force him to implicate Princess Elizabeth in the plan. He refused to do so even under torture, and Queen Mary ordered him beheaded.

    I think that Thomas would approve of this prayer as well:

    The Psalms, 20

    A Prayer for Victory
    To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

    1 The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble;
    the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
    2 send thee help from the sanctuary,
    and strengthen thee out of Zion;
    3 remember all thy offerings,
    and accept thy burnt sacrifice.
    Selah.

    4 Grant thee according to thine own heart,
    and fulfil all thy counsel.

    5 We will rejoice in thy salvation,
    and in the name of our God we will set up our banners:
    the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.

    6 Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed;
    he will hear him from his holy heaven
    with the saving strength of his right hand.

    7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses:
    but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

    8 They are brought down and fallen:
    but we are risen, and stand upright.

    9 Save, LORD:
    let the king hear us when we call.

    This has been my prayer since I returned from walking in my self-imposed darkness. It is so sad that many whom proclaim to be “Christians” still follow the false teachings as spewed by so many false leaders. Olsteen, I’m looking at you.

    33 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, speak to the sons of your people and say to them, ‘If I bring a sword upon a land, and the people of the land take one man from among them and make him their watchman, 3 and he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows on the trumpet and warns the people, 4 then he who hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, and a sword comes and takes him away, his blood will be on his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet but did not take warning; his blood will be on himself. But had he taken warning, he would have delivered his life. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet and the people are not warned, and a sword comes and takes a person from them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require from the watchman’s hand.’

    7 “Now as for you, son of man, I have appointed you a watchman for the house of Israel; so you will hear a message from My mouth and give them warning from Me. 8 When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require from your hand. 9 But if you on your part warn a wicked man to turn from his way and he does not turn from his way, he will die in his iniquity, but you have delivered your life.” Ezekiel 33;1-9 NASB

    As I recall, RR#40 drew attention to this verse when he came to power.

    I’m paraphrasing, but the message stands…
    A humble and contrite spirit is a joy to the Lord…………..
    It still brings tears to my eyes, M…..for I remember a day some twenty-two years ago when I was lost, no hope. A broken, craven shell of what used to be a man.
    I called and He came…….in the darkness….He came.

    I got back from a Prayer Service at my church, that was especially for this coming week….. Now, we did pray for local leaders, our church, the pastor, Hurricane Sandy’s victims, etc…. Yet, nearly every man there was concerned or was in prayer about THIS ELECTION.

    We all came to the consensus, we can win this, but we better be in for the long haul, and expect nothing determined til the wee hours of Wednesday, if we’re lucky…..

    Also, we were urged to fast for the next few days (a meal, dusk to dawn, whatever you’re led to fast from, but let it be significant enough to be a reminder of sacrifice… don’t just “fast” from certain stogies or french fries) and be in prayer for The Republic.

    Now, after the win, which I predict will be stalled due to recounts, the Black Ministers Brigade, the Black House thugs aka The Administration, and the whorish media, a final admission of losing EPICALLY will need to be admitted. It will be done, as enough people, will threaten insurrection or strikes if a solution is not found. The libtards will start a slew of “random acts of violence” and “nights of rage” and try to “burn the mother effer down” but will fail to weaken us or the leaders which are now wrestling control of the GOP from the Vichyite scumsucking collaborators out there (but work still remains)

    I predict Romney will give a good acceptance speech, but a good sport to POTUS (respect the rank even if the man holding said rank sucks the arse out of a dead RINO or rhino)….and will be sworn in on schedule.

    Now, if the Senate remains in Dem control, expect gridlock and the blame game and the media seeking to redeem itself (not in our eyes, as they’re elitists and will bitterly pray to Molech for a pandemic to kill US) in their peers and Europe’s eyes, and seek to unseat Romney. It will fail, but the whole first term to undue Obama’s damage will be arduous. I predict some “compromise” by the RINOs. Enough of THAT will lead to another midterm blood letting, probably some more Dems lose in the SEnate along with some RINOs…..better headway in later 2014-2016….. but in 2016 ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE PART II will be the libs agenda….. They will run either Hillary (if they have brains and if the libs hang Obama out to dry) or they’ll re-try the half black guy (cuz they might be so stuck on stupid to try their novelty trick AGAIN)….. this time Romney will have a record and might defeat them again…..

    Now, if the Senate goes GOP this coming week or next few weeks bf New Years, I expect some better headway in rolling back Obamacare, Taxageddon, etc….. Expect villifying by the lefties to ramp up. Expect protests to be at the inauguration, but Romney still goes in undaunted.

    However, assuming Romney waffles, and is replaced in the primaries, or steps down bf 2016, Paul Ryan runs and will probably get the base fired up even more than THIS TIME (as right now, we’re excited due to SURVIVAL and FIGHT THIS BITCH, NOW OR ELSE mode) and the next Dem might get their arse handed to them Mondale or John Kerry style.

    All of the above hinges on the economy improving, unemployment dipping dramatically, our military and security being serious and not a joke like it was from Jan 2009 to PRESENT, also assuming we stand with Israel, we ought be fine despite being a pariah again. Wah wah, you don’t all have to speak German or Japanese so spank you very much! Domestically, Romney needs to rollback Obamacare in its entirety, assuming the Federal Courts haven’t taken over….. Free Speech needs to mean just that, not what some whiney atheists or pissy elitists say it is LEST they get offended. GM will need to go through structured bankrupcy and re-emerge sans Union sweetheart deals. Chrysler did it back when Lee Iacocca was their boss, if history serves me well….if not, my bad.

    However, none of the above are going to happen, if some of you don’t try and surrender the fricking army of US on our behalf, because you’re afraid.And if I didn’t know any better, I’d say some of you might be closet commies… Now, sack up, get serious, tune out the media BS, vote if you haven’t already, and pray to The Lord and stay the mother flipping course!

    That’s my $0.02! And that’s the only “change” I have left after Obama taxes me if he wins!

    Now, live for nothing or fight for something!

    Your vote, your call!

    IIRC that’d mark a change in Jackass policy, which–at least regarding the top o’ the ticket–is to bar losers from a second chance. Maybe the Demagogs will clean house after a hard loss & move to blunt extremist influence. Yeah, maybe….
