Psalm 106:2 says, “Who can utter the mighty deeds of the Lord, or declare all his praise?”

As we look back and reflect on 2017, I think all of us can say with the psalmist that God has done so many mighty deeds. God has done great things for us. Both corporately and privately there have been many prayers that God has heard and answered.

Psalm 60:11 “Give us help from trouble, for the help of man is useless.”
We have always believed the only answer for America is a revival. There is no hope in one man or in a political party. Godly men and women in office is a blessing, but it is not the answer for our state or nation. Only God can change the hearts of the American people. 
Much of the good our President and the God-fearing leaders in this administration as well as those in our local governments do can merely be undone by others after them who do not have a fear of God. A revival that transforms the hearts of the people is the only answer! 
In recent months it has seemed that many of God’s people were growing comfortable again and no longer feeling the need to persevere in prayer. Perhaps the results of the recent VA elections was what this state needed to bring us to our knees once again. We cannot afford to be comfortable when our nation is so far from God! We cannot afford to be comfortable when our nation is one of 26 nations, out of 195 nations in the world, that allows gay marriage; or when our nation is one of 7 nations in the world that allows abortion after 20 weeks; or when as a nation we have killed approximately 60 million babies and continue to abort over 3,000 babies a day; or when our tax dollars are being spent on reassignment surgeries and our society is beginning to see transgenderism as acceptable. Our nation is in dire need! 
The spiritual battle is raging over our nation. The powers of darkness are fighting continuously to destroy America. We as God’s people cannot afford to sit back and grow comfortable. We do not fight against flesh and blood, but rather we fight against the principalities and powers in heavenly places!  
Some battles in this great war will be lost, but we must never forget that the battle is the Lord’s, and He will be victorious because in spite of apparent setbacks the war goes on!  
In Deut 20:1-4 the Lord shows us His battle plans: 
“When you go out to battle against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them; for the Lord your God is with you who brought you up from the land of Egypt. So it shall be, when you are on the verge of battle, that the priest shall approach and speak to the people. And he shall say to them, ‘Hear, O Israel: Today you are on the verge of battle with your enemies. Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because of them; for the Lord your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.’”
The key to winning the battle is battling under the Lord’s banner! If He is with us, who can be against us? We may lose some elections, but that does not mean the war is lost! 
Gideon and his small army of 300 men defeated an army that was as numerous as locusts ONLY because the Lord was with them! The presence of God was with them causing the enemy to fall back and perish before them! 
This spiritual war over our nation will only be won through those who are seeking the Lord with all their hearts, being filled with His presence, and standing up for righteousness no matter the cost — those who are persevering in prayer until revival falls on America! 
William Wilberforce once said, “I must confess equally boldly that my own solid hopes for the well-being of my country depend, not so much on her navies and armies, nor on the wisdom of her rulers, nor on the spirit of her people, as on the persuasion that she still contains many who love and obey the Gospel of Christ. I believe that their prayers may yet prevail.”
We should not be discouraged by election results. As part of the army of the Lord let us press on and fight as never before through prayer and fasting — seeking the Lord with all our hearts! If we are faithful in this, our prayers WILL prevail!

We read in Jeremiah 52 that after Jerusalem fell into the hand of the enemy, one of the first things the enemy did was to destroy the House of the Lord and rob anything of value.

Today, we are in desperate need of a revival. This revival must begin in the church which will be what will make a difference in our nation. Sadly, the church in America is known around the world as a lukewarm church. For so long we have run after other things that do not satisfy resulting in a spiritually bankrupt church which is why our nation is spiritually and morally bankrupt. 
In Jeremiah  the Lord said, “For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, and hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.” God’s people exchanged their love relationship with the Lord for other things they thought would satisfy them. In reality they were dying spiritually from a lack of living water and were spiritually and morally bankrupt while being taken into captivity! 
Throughout the book of Jeremiah we see that despite God’s people committing these two evils, the Lord, in His great mercy and compassion for His people, sent His prophets over and over to call His people back to Him. He longed for them to see their need for repentance and return to Him. At this point God’s people were living in partial captivity, and the message to them was turn back to the Lord in repentance and obey Him, or the end would be total captivity. 
In chapters 3 and 4 of Jeremiah we see the Lord was crying out to His people… ”Return and I will not cause My anger to fall on you for I am merciful.” “Acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against the Lord.” “Break up your fallow ground and do not sow among thorns.” “Circumcise yourselves to the Lord and take away the foreskins of your hearts lest My fury come forth like fire because of the evil of your doings.” “Wash your heart from wickedness that you may be saved.”
Despite the warnings, God’s people refused to listen and turn back to the Lord which resulted in the sword, famine, and pestilence — a complete giving over to their enemies. 
Just as in the days of Jeremiah, the Lord has been calling His people in America to repent and turn in order to not fall under greater judgment. He has been calling us to return to the fountain of Life so we can live and not die! 
By His mercy some of God’s people in America have been listening and turning in repentance. 
The Lord has commanded His people to love Him with all their heart, all their strength, and all their mind. If we are being obedient to this commandment we will be found living at the fountain of living water! 
There is an old hymn that says:
Like the woman at the well, I was seeking for things that would not satisfy. 
Then I heard my Savior calling, “Draw from the well that never shall run dry.”
So fill my cup, Lord; I lift it up Lord; Come and quench this thirsting in my soul. 
Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more. Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole. 
 
Let us pray that daily we and those we know would be drawn to Him who is the fountain of living water; so we can be revived and restored and have rivers of water flowing out of our innermost beings AND be known as a church that once was lukewarm but now has returned to her first love and is on fire for God — alive, with power flowing through her! Then and only then will our nation be healed.

Recently, our nation has been experiencing distress. There was the protest in Charlottesville, with racial tensions rising, unprecedented and catastrophic flooding in Texas due to hurricane Harvey, as well as terrible destruction from hurricane Irma. We have also heard distressing news of a grade school in California holding a gender-change ceremony for a kindergarten boy wanting to become a girl.

God told Habakkuk, “The vision is yet for an appointed time… Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come.” Habakkuk 2:3


Waiting is very difficult for most people. In our society today we are accustomed to having everything we want pretty much when we want it. Then when our prayers are not answered quickly we can wonder why.

In Mark 9, Jesus said, “All things are possible to him who believes,” and in Mark 10 he said, “For with God all things are possible.” God can do anything! And God has chosen prayer as a method of accomplishing great things.

A.W. Tozer once said, “Prayer unites God and the praying man in one and says God is omnipotent and the praying man is omnipotent (for the time being) because he is in touch with omnipotence. Let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may find mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Let us come boldly. We should come humbly but no man should be so humble that he doesn't ask. We should be humble but we should dare to ask, seek and knock. There must be expectation. One of the greatest snares in praying is to pray vaguely.”

Throughout history, men and woman who understood this concept, altered world events through their prayers. Two such men were Rees Howells and his son Samuel.

This Thursday, May 4th, is the National Day of Prayer. The motto this year is, 

"Hear Us... Forgive Us... Heal Us ...For Your Great Name’s Sake!" 

This was Daniel’s prayer. Daniel was an intercessor during a time of great captivity, and his diligence in intercession was greatly rewarded. 

 

Mordecai was another intercessor in Scripture who was greatly rewarded for his labors. When we read the book of Esther, it is easy to focus on her story, but Mordecai was the one who first began interceding when he saw the plans of the wicked to destroy God’s people, and he was the one who influenced Esther to go before the King.

Our nation, which once — for the most part — promoted righteousness, has been promoting things in the world that are an abomination in the eyes of the Lord. Our God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for their wickedness, but he also forgave and restored Nineveh when they repented of their wicked ways! He did this with a great revival that spread from the top down.

Only the spirit of repentance sweeping across our land can change the hearts and minds in this nation. We desperately need a revival, which will be what spares us from God’s judgment. This revival can begin with you and me!

In the past those whom God used to bring about revival were men and women of God who had sought Him with all their hearts — men and women of prayer. We cannot stop praying until we see revival become a reality!

1 Chronicles 21:1 says, “And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.” David was a God-fearing king, a man after God’s own heart, yet there was a time in his reign that he succumbed to the principalities and the powers of darkness in heavenly places. Because of David’s action judgment fell on the people of Israel and 70,000 men died. One wrong decision from one man brought great suffering to the people under him.
 
It is vital that we pray for both our political and spiritual leaders because the decisions they make affect us for good or for bad.
 
Today America is a divided nation because of past decisions that have been made by our leaders, both politically and spiritually. When spiritual leaders fail, the church suffers; and when the church suffers, our nation suffers.
 
In 2 Chronicles 6 we find Solomon's prayer as he is before the Lord and before the people.

With a new administration it could become easy for God’s people to begin trusting in man instead of God to solve America’s problems. It is very easy for us to become complacent when things seem to be going well, but we can never forget that our eyes must always be on God as our source of help.  
 
We see in scripture that when God’s people put their trust in the arm of flesh, the result was always tragic; but when they put their trust in God, He blessed them.
 
In 1 Chronicles, the sons of Reuben, the Gadites, and half the tribe of Manassah went to war with some of their enemies and were helped against them. Their enemies were delivered into their hands BECAUSE they cried out to God in the battle. He heeded their prayer BECAUSE they trusted in Him. Many of the enemies were slain because the war was God’s!

And whatsoever ye shall ask in My Name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in My Name, I will do it (John 14:13, 14)
 
Call unto Me and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not (Jeremiah 33:3)
 
Prayer does not release some mere force of man or nature. Prayer releases the immeasurable wealth and power of the Almighty God!  "Call unto Me and I will answer thee and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not" (Jer 33:3). There you have it. It is the voice of God!

OUR PRAYER
BY WESLEY L. DUEWEL

Lord, light again the sacred flame of Holy Ghost revival fire,
He who at Pentecost then came is He Whom we so much desire.
We need Him in our midst today; Oh, send Him to us while we pray.


Revival is Your work, O God; Tis for revival that we plead!
Spread holy flames of fire abroad and meet Your people's deepest need.
Oh, send the Spirit's holy power upon our waiting hearts this hour.


We need the Spirit to convict and bring once more the sense of sin.
May sinners feel their conscience pricked
And see how far from God they've been.
With Holy Ghost conviction seize till sinners fall upon their knees.

Since the creation of man there has been a continual battle between light and darkness, between good and evil, between the wicked and the righteous. This spiritual battle continues to rage over our nation.


For some years now the wicked have been ruling this nation, and the righteous have mourned and wondered if our nation was lost for good. Throughout this past year God’s people have awakened from their slumber and lifted their voices — repenting and praying for revival. God heard our prayers and divinely intervened for His people in the elections.


As we watched the drama of election night it was clear that there was a spiritual battle for this nation. That evening we witnessed the power of prayer. This political victory, for which we thank God, should not cause us to take our ease but rather to continue what we have begun — drawing near to God in repentance, praying for a national revival. This political victory is not the answer for America! It is a blessing but not the answer. This election is only temporary.

A few weeks ago we gathered on the Capitol grounds to repent for our sins and to pray that God’s favor would once again be upon our nation and that He would save us. As Franklin Graham said, “Our nation is in trouble, and our only hope is in God!”

Our nation is in trouble because we have sinned against God and rejected Him. He has lifted His hand of blessing, but still our hope is in Him because we know He is a merciful God that can forgive us if we repent and cry out to Him. He can save us!

On Wednesday, October 12th at 12:00 p.m there will be a rally with Franklin Graham on the State Capitol grounds. This will be a gathering to repent and pray for revival in our state and nation.
 
Franklin Graham has a vision that carries him to the capital of every state of our land sharing that there is no hope in any political party but that our only hope is in God! He realizes, as many others do, that our nation is in trouble and that God is calling His people to turn to Him, humble themselves, repent, and seek His face. For this reason Franklin has been calling God’s people across this nation to gather together to pray and repent. 
Israel gathered at the sound of the trumpet, and we gather to pray by the calling of the Holy Spirit to each one of us. Many see that we are in great need, not only as a nation but also as God’s people. 
Like Israel we have sinned against God, and He has been displeased with us. As a result of our sin He has sent us affliction.
 
But just as in the days of Israel, God has raised up those, like Franklin Graham who are crying out for God’s people to repent so He can deliver us

We have held more communion with man than with God!

We have given a greater prominence to man's writings, man's opinions, man's systems in our studies--than to the Word of God. ( Is 8:20; I Thess. 2:13)

We have drunk more out of human cisterns than divine.

We have not been men of prayer. The spirit of prayer has slumbered among us.

We are in dire need of the presence of God. It brings Life; it gives us joy which is our strength; it breaks chains; it causes our enemies to be defeated. 

Israel understood the value of the presence of God as they prepared to enter the Promised Land. They knew that with God's presence they would have the strength they needed to fight the battles, and their enemies would not survive before them.

In Joshua 2:24 the spies said to Joshua, "Truly the Lord has delivered all the land into our hands, for indeed all the inhabitants of the country are faint hearted because of us."
