There are many of us who believe that prayer played a major part in the upset victory of Donald Trump last November.
He may not be a born again Christian. And he may not be one who believes in miracles. As a person who grew up in the church of Norman Vincent Peale he is the personification of that minister’s theological doctrine of positive thinking. Like Robert Schuller of Crystal Cathedral fame, or any of the word of faith, gab-it-and-grab-it, believe to receive crowd The Donald believes the words of his mouth have power to shape the world around him.
Anyone who sees the result of being positive as opposed to being negative knows there is much real world sense to this belief. Is the glass half empty or is it half full?
As spirit-filled born again believers we know that it isn’t about who we are it is all about what He has done and it isn’t about what we have done it is all about who He is. We know that prayer is the answer and faith is the key. We know that God can use any tool to accomplish His purpose.
We also know that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. And in this struggle we know that a thousand may fall at our side and ten thousand at our right hand but it shall not come near us if we keep our eyes on Him.
So as we watch our president surrounded by the Progressive Fusion Party of Democrats, Republicans, courts, and media don’t despair. Don’t return to the couch and think, “We voted him in now we can go back to sleep.” Now is the time to do battle in the heavenlies. This Hail Mary victory pass shall not stand unless we hit our knees. We must hold the president and our nation up in prayers. Pray confusion into the counsel of the enemy, pray that President Trump has the courage and strength to stand for America when everyone around him is proclaiming they are citizens of the world and that America should be just another state in a UN dominated new world order.
The nation state is what won in November. The globalist conspiracy was thwarted at the very moment when they thought the last nail would be driven into our coffin. They had victory snatched out of their talons and they are going berserk as the rail against the last gasp of American independence.
Many of these advocates of global centralization and the authoritarianism it would need to re-distribute the world’s goods claim to be atheists. They are actually devotees of humanism, worshipers of self. In other words those who have bitten the apple and listened to the siren song of the serpent, “you will be like God.”
And we also know God has promised, “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.” If we will do that, if we will turn from this world and embrace Him then we shall receive the benefit of those who wait on the Lord. We shall renew our strength. We shall mount up with wings like eagles. We shall run and not be weary. We shall walk and not faint.
So why worry when we can pray?
