Pray for All Men:
"Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle—I am speaking the truth in Christ[a]and not lying—a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth." 1 Timothy 2:1-7
I want to share the following, the parable of the persistent widow;
Luke 18 New King James Version (NKJV)
"Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart, 2 saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. 3 Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’ 4 And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man, 5 yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’”
6 Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. 7 And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? 8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
Do you see? Jesus gave us a mandate not to stop, be persistent in our prayers! As long as we are praying for our leaders to be saved, for the knowledge of God to fill them, for our land to be healed and be one Nation under God. How can we lose? WE CAN'T! Don't give into what the negative world has to say about our country(s), we have the promises of God that tell us different. God will fulfill for us the promise of 2 Chronicles 7:14:
"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." (KJV)
Love and Blessings!

“The LORD is king! He is robed in majesty. Indeed, the LORD is robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken. Your throne, O LORD, has stood from time immemorial. You yourself are from the everlasting past. The floods have risen up, O LORD. The floods have roared like thunder; the floods have lifted their pounding waves. But mightier than the violent raging of the seas, mightier than the breakers on the shore— the LORD above is mightier than these! Your royal laws cannot be changed. Your reign, O LORD, is holy forever and ever.”
Psalms 93:1-5 NLT
What can't be shaken can not be broken, joy can not be lost, lights won't be dimmed. The one who does not change lives within you that means YOU can't be moved from your appointed place and purpose!
Love and Blessings!!

God has given each one of us dreams and desires. He placed these in us before we were ever born, for this day and time. It's time to bring those dreams and desires for your lives to the forefront.
For many of us it's time to start planning for 2016. We are told in Habakkuk 2:2 "to write the vision down, make it clear so even running it can be clearly read." I urge you if you haven't yet write down your vision as God has given it to you, if you already have bring it out and re-read it.
Today is the day, remember your first love, remember what excitement you had when God first revealed that dream to you. It's an exciting time to be alive! Pray for direction and what steps need to be made to achieve that vision. Pray for direction on how you can help others achieve the vision given to them. We are made to work together for the purpose of kingdom expansion. Our Father has so much love for each one of us, He see's you successful and thriving. Grab hold of that, not just for yourself but for your families and this nation, don't let go!
Love and Blessings!
