PRESIDENTIAL PRAYER WATCH UPDATE

Presidential Prayer Watch Update

“Still our eyes failed us, watching vainly for our help; in our watching we watched for a nation that could not save us” (Lam 4:17).

The Great Awakening

 

     In a recent interview Texas U.S. Representative Louie Gohmert stated how the attempts to bring about the impeachment of President Trump and to overthrow the election of 2016 was closer to a “communist revolution” than a civil war. Other than our president, Gohmert is unfortunately one of just a hand full of governmental leaders who are holding nothing back willing to speak and stand for truth. Later in the interview he expressed how he will do all in his power to stand in the way of those who are seeking to remove the president and grab control of this nation.

 

     The book of Lamentations is not the kind of book you necessarily want to read before going to bed because it is more like a script for a funeral. It describes the death of a city, and that city being the once proud and majestic Jerusalem.

 

     The invading forces of Babylon had infiltrated the city and were doing what they do best, steal, kill and destroy. The writer, the prophet Jeremiah regrettably confessed, “the Lord delivered me into the hands of those whom I am not able to withstand” (Lam 1:14).

 

     Later in the book Jeremiah blasts the religious leaders of his day who, as a result of their false prophecies and delusions, failed to uncover the reason for the nations demise, which was their sin (see Lam 2:14). The walls had come down and the enemy was entrenched throughout Israel.

 

“But if they had stood in My counsel, and caused My people to hear My words, then they would have turned them from their evil way and from the evil of their doings” (Jeremiah 23:22).

 

     Amazingly in the midst of what seemed hopeless Jeremiah wrote, “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness” (Lam 3:22-23). Having written this he then confesses, “there may yet be hope” (Lam 3:29).

 

     As was the case with Israel the enemies of America, however you define them, are spread throughout every segment of society. Just as explained in the first chapter of Romans multitudes of people have exchanged the truth of God for lies. What once was seen as evil is now celebrated as good and what use to be accepted as good is now considered evil.

 

     Although Jeremiah came to the realization that the nation he loved could no longer save the people he still declared and obviously believed there may yet be hope.

 

“Still our eyes failed us, watching vainly for our help; in our watching we watched for a nation that could not save us” (Lam 4:17).
