40 Days To Save America Fast & Prayer - Day 34
All God's Promises
2 Corinthians 1:20 For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.
When John was serving time in hard labor on the Isle of Patmos, God said, “Come up here.” He had something He wanted John to see. John saw a door open to heaven, and when he entered he saw a throne on which stood the Lamb that was slain. Around that throne he saw an emerald rainbow. What does that say to us today? If you’re sitting in Christ in the midst of the throne (which Scripture says we are), then you should see all of creation from a dimension that is not hemmed in by time and space, or death and corruption, or sin, or destruction, or even judgment because that Lamb took the judgment in Himself. Everything you see should be through this emerald rainbow of the redemptive promises of God. It is the assurance that every promise is “Yes and Amen” in Christ Jesus. The answer you are praying for is already settled in heaven, now.
Prayer Day 34
Father God, we thank you that you are not forgetful of Your promises. We thank You that thought they tarry, wait, because You are doing something in our day that is so magnificent that we cannot fathom it before we see it. We say “Yes and Amen” to Your plans for our nation. We say “yes and amen” the hope and future that You have to give to America. Lord, we say “Yes and Amen” to Your visitation in this valley of decision for our nation.
Lord, we thank You that Your mercies are new every morning. We pray for every family that has lost loved ones, homes, and property in hurricane Sandy. We pray for Your comfort, grace, and restoration. We pray, come, Holy Spirit, and heal our land. Let us see Your fresh mercies bring a turning in our hearts and in our government to align with Your good purposes and values, in Jesus’ name.
