An Awakening

I had an odd dream this morning just before I woke.  I had all the presidential candidates together to make a film with individuals asking questions and candidates answering.  I was doing it in a little cabin on the side of a mountain.  We did the Republican side without a hitch.  We were then going to do the Democratic side; but for some reason, there was a delay.  I finally began praying over the situation out loud.  Well, there seemed to be a lot of noise in the room, so I just prayed louder.  I finally prayed myself awake and my husband, too!

Well, that was a startling awakening!  I felt the Holy Spirit on me, urging me to pray for every individual candidate, not just the election results. I believe the Lord told me that we are to pray fervently as Christians for our country and leaders like we never have before.  I say we; because, I believe it was not just a message for me. 

Here are some of the things that the Holy Spirit lead me to pray for:

God would ARREST each candidate in the name of Jesus Christ. 

No matter what their religion, they would come to a salvation experience. 

That the Holy Spirit would begin to transform them into the image of Christ.  All things are possible with God.

That they would bow down to the Lord and seek His will. 

That people who call themselves Christians across this country would all have true salvation experiences, that they would all repent, and be stirred to intercessory prayer.

 This isn’t a political blog by any means.  I don’t know who I’m going to vote for.  I’m just urging you to pray like there’s no tomorrow.  Our country is split and only God can reunite us.

I repented of some things this morning.  I urge you to examine your heart; seek the Lord while He may be found; and, pray without ceasing for our country, for your family, and to be transformed by the renewing of your mind and by the washing of the word. 

As for the election results, His ways are higher than our ways.  His thoughts are higher than our thoughts.  I will pray not only for whichever candidate I finally choose, but that God’s Perfect Will will be done.

God bless you all!

God bless the U.S.A.!
