MY PRAYER: Father,
As we bow our knees to You today,
Seeking Your will and none other,
Radical elements within our society—
Those who mock Your children and Your Name—
Chide us, telling us that we are being un-American
For desiring America to follow our Constitution
And the traditional values of our forefathers,
Which have stood the test of time for generations,
Rather than renounce all that we love and cherish
To produce a globalist society that repudiates
Everything we hold dear. May this never happen,
And may this vision for America never come to fruition.
 
Rather, as we come before You today, strengthen each of us
With Your Holy Spirit, and provide us with the will
And the courage we require to stand firmly against those
Who want to change the core values of the United States,
Replacing them with beliefs that are deemed by the Left
To be virtuous, but most definitely are anything but righteous.
Unite us in purpose as we vigorously defy the vicious onslaught
Of the unrighteous, and allow us to be valiant and victorious,
As we do everything within our power to preserve
This great nation that You have blessed with abundance
Since its founding centuries ago. We ask all of this from You,
And we ask it in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

PRAYER: Fidelity to Israel

 

 

th-2 10-01-21

Father,

In Your benevolent faithfulness, You have fulfilled

Your promise to restore Your Chosen People

To the land of Milk & Honey like You promised in ages past.

Such wondrous fidelity is beyond the grasp of mere mortals

Like us to grasp, or even to contemplate, but it is

Completely within Your nature to do everything

You have ever promised to do—now, and in the future.

We marvel at Your loyalty, but we also depend on it.

 

During this time, as we anxiously await the Second Coming

Of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we ask that You

Continue to bless the Jewish people and the nation of Israel.

In the depth of their hearts, they desire peace with their neighbors,

But those who serve the false god, Allah, are unwilling to acknowledge

Either Israel’s legitimacy or even its right to exist as a nation.

With bitter acrimony and hatred in their hearts, they treacherously

Seek nothing but ill will against Your Chosen People.

They desire the complete annihilation of the promised seed of Abraham.

Confound the evil plots of these malicious Islamic villains, Father,

While You continue to protect Your beloved people from harm.

Amen

COMMON SENSE: Jamal Khashoggi certainly did not deserve to be murdered at the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Istanbul, but this horrific incident must not be allowed to undermine our alliance with Saudi Arabia. Along with Israel, the Saudis are our key partners in the Middle East. Without them, it would be nearly impossible to check the aggressive territorial ambitions of the Iranians, whose partners include the Russians, Syrians, and terrorist groups like Hezbollah. The Iranians want to form the Crescent Caliphate, which includes the annihilation of Israel. This makes the Saudis vital to our foreign policy of keeping Iran in check.
Consequently, our condemnation of the Saudis must not include the termination of the $130 billion arms deal made in 2017. These munitions are absolutely necessary to maintain the balance of power in the Middle East. Nevertheless, canceling this arms deal is exactly what the pro-Iranian press and former Obama administration officials are calling for, knowing that it would benefit Iran while harming both Saudi Arabia and Israel.
There is no doubt that the Saudis have brought this mess upon themselves, but our response must be measured and not self-defeating. We simply cannot afford to discard this alliance; nor can we afford to allow the world’s oil supply to be threatened by overreacting to the murder of a non-American on foreign soil. Remember, international politics is often sordid, and it is never pure. This is certainly a perfect example of this.

COMMON SENSE: Pastor Andrew Brunson’s release from house arrest in Turkey is being heralded as a great success for the Trump administration, which it is, but the timing of it creates more problems than it solves. Let me explain why.
 
By releasing Brunson as a gesture of goodwill, Turkey has put pressure on President Trump to be more forceful in its sanctions against Saudi Arabia for the apparent murder of Jamal Khashoggi—a writer for the “Washington Post.” Putting sanctions on Saudi Arabia isn’t something Trump wants to do, but the release of Brunson will make it difficult to not act strongly against them.
 
Turkey is a member of NATO, which makes them our ally, but Saudi Arabia is also our ally. They are strategic in our efforts to box-in Iran’s efforts to dominate the region. Forcing our hand with the Saudis is in Iran’s best interest, and also in their primary ally’s interest, Russia. By murdering Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey, the Saudis have created an international situation that is very destabilizing to the entire region.
 
Russia would love for the Turks to leave NATO. It would give them easier naval access to the Mediterranean, through the Dardanelles Straights in Turkey. This is something the Russians have desired since the days of the Czars. For more than a century, the USA has kept this from happening, but it definitely remains a goal for Putin. It’s actually the reason why he annexed Crimea during the Obama administration.
 
It would allow Russia to dominate the Mediterranean, which would be a threat to Greece, Italy, Spain, and Israel—all of whom are our allies. So, the release of Brunson is a good thing, but it also complicates the volatile Middle East further.
 
I know this is complex. Linkages always are, but I thought you would want to know.

GDP by Quarters
united-states-gdp-growth
COMMON SENSE: With the Atlanta FED predicting 3rd quarter growth in our GDP to be 5%, the economy of the United States is performing well beyond economic expectations. Just two years ago, we were told that a growth rate of between 1%-to-2% was all we could expect in the foreseeable future. But that was then, and this is now.
 
Because of the massive tax cuts, deregulation of business, and renegotiated trade agreements, America’s economic engine is humming, growing at an unprecedented rate. The numbers don’t lie, and there is no way to spin negativity out of such positive news. If we continue with the same policies, staying the course, our economic future will be bright for quite some time—guaranteed.

MY MEDITATION:
How blessed is the man who does not walk
In the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
 
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
 
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers
(Psalm 1:1-3, NAS).

KAVANAUGH: Today is very momentous day in the life of our nation, as Judge Brett Kavanaugh faces the allegations of Dr. Christine Blazey Ford before the Senate Judiciary Committee. For people of faith, support for Donald Trump during the 2016 Presidential Election was solidified by his promise to select Conservative Justices for the Supreme Court.
Kavenaugh is such a man. Based on his judicial record, Kavanaugh is a judge we can support, but he has to be straightforward and credible in his effort to clear his name. Let us pray that this will happen. Let us also pray that the truth comes out, regardless of what that might be.
Let the light expose the deeds of darkness perpetrated by those who have been devious. Let their mischief be revealed so that the entire nation knows exactly who they are.
