Fast and pray for America.

We need to pray for revival, a Third Great Awakening — that God would pour out His Holy Spirit and work repentance and revival in our land and give us the knowledge and fear of the Lord.

Fast and pray for America: Our Founding Fathers called numerous fasts. Christians should fast and confess personal and national sins in the spirit of 2 Chronicles 7:14: If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land (ESV).

For 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 (Ephesians 6:12). We can’t lose. They can’t win.

The Transformed Wife from Facebook

Neither of us have ever had a desire to commit adultery, praise the Lord! We just couldn’t bear the devastation from such a horrible betrayal to each other and our precious children and even grandchildren now.

I don’t teach men. I teach women biblical womanhood, but men learn from me what to look for in a wife, what to teach their daughters, or how to pray for their wives. They’ve only heard feminism their entire lives. They need to hear why God created women and His commands to them.

Whenever men email me for advice, I forward it to my husband! He’s the one who should be advising them, not me. It works out great! (He’s mentored lots of men). I wasn’t a submissive wife for the first 20 years of my marriage. He has plenty of experience!

A Christian Woman’s Journey: Finding My Way Home:

From a comment: I am older (68) and the downturn in morals that I have witnessed is staggering. The antagonism towards God and Christians too. When I was a young stay at home, homeschooling mom I was worried about the way things were going, now I am appalled.

“If your man disagrees with you and stands firm on a decision he’s made about something, don’t make things even more difficult by whining about it. It’s not lady-like and very unattractive. When he’s made a firm decision, assuming it’s a legal one that doesn’t challenge your morals, stand by him and withdraw. While men and women are equal we are inherently different, and our roles in a relationship reflect those differences. As I said before, let him lead. A high-quality man will want to lead you the best he can, and he’s at his best when his woman is highly supportive of his final decisions. Think of him as the captain and you’re his first mate. If the first mate is always begging to have her own way and whines behind the captain’s back, that could cause a lot of problems for the journey (relationship) ahead. It’s even worse when you have kids. Your son and daughter don’t enjoy hearing about how Daddy’s decision to do so-and-so was stupid. This sort of behavior is a display of disrespect, and when your children witness it, their respect for the “Captain” goes down little by little. I think you know what happens when children lose respect for their father.”

Resilient Masculinity from Facebook

“But those who wait for the Lord, they will inherit the land.
Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more;
And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there.
But the humble will inherit the land
And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity.”
Psalm 37:10-11(NASB1995)
“The wicked are overthrown and are no more,
But the house of the righteous will stand.”
Proverbs 12:7 (NASB)

Plymouth Rock Foundation: At the time of its signing, the Declaration of Independence was a “great reset.” Virtually all governments in recorded history prior to 1776 recognized few rights for people. Our Declaration, however, proclaimed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
This presupposition that the God of the Bible gave unalienable rights directly to the individual shook the world! The “Crown Prerogative” of Britain was resisted and we reset our nation back to the premise from the book of Genesis, “…God created man in His own image.”
This was unique, and by the end of 1776 the Declaration had been translated into Italian, Polish, German, and French. The people loved it, but those with power scrambled to maintain the status quo. Loyalist Governor Hutchinson offered a rebuttal noting “the absurdity of making the governed to be governors.” John Lind from England was hired to publish An Answer to the Declaration of the American Congress. Lind began with the premise: “Ill would it become the dignity of an insulted Sovereign… to recognize that equality and independence, to which subjects, persisting in revolt, cannot fail to pretend….” King George III had ignored the previous writings of the Continental Congress. However, this time they got his attention, and the result was that he declared the Colonies were in rebellion.

My wife and I are the proud parents of an autistic 30-year-old son. Despite the love and support of family and friends, autism leaves us exhausted and devastated. We do not know why our family suffers with autism other than that we live in a fallen world. Some would ask why God permits such things, but we pity those who suffer such things and do not know the Lord. We look forward to that day when Christ “will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Revelation 21:4). We pray that God will be glorified in healing our son in this life, but we know that he will not be autistic in heaven.

Jimmy Stewart visits Henry Fonda on the set of “The Ox-Bow Incident” before being deployed to England during World War II. Fonda would soon join Stewart, enlisting in the Navy. Upon enlisting, Fonda said, “I don’t want to be in a fake war in a studio.” Stewart was sent overseas to fly B-24 Liberator Bombers over Nazi-occupied Europe. At a time when air crews were expected to be killed between 8 and 12 missions, Stewart had flown 20. He was stationed in Europe through the end of the war with the 445th Bomber Group/8th Air Force, receiving two Distinguished Flying Crosses, four Air Medals, a Presidential Unit Citation and the French Croix de Guerre.
