I am sure we all have seen the latest news attack regarding the Capitol in Washington, DC. I did not hear about this until I turned on the television after I got home from work. When I saw this play out across the news my first reaction was, “no “this cannot be happening.”

Only six days in 2021 and this happens. Why must these evil events continue to thrive? I could no longer watch the news; my heart is saddened. This is wrong on so many levels. I am all for protest and standing up for your rights. But when it turns into chaos, I am totally against it.

I have so many questions regarding this nation, and its leaders. Scripture does show that before the Lord returns two things need to happen; the preaching needs to extend to the ends of the earth and a falling away will occur and “the man of lawlessness” will be revealed.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 do not let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.

And Satan is just sitting back laughing at all the chaos he has stirred up. Where is the church in all of this? Why are we being so silent? Why are we not doing what 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

“Jesus, my heart is so heavy I am just lost for words. Even in this prayer I just can not seem to write. Lord, the enemy is ragging war. I never thought that I will be seeing such hatred and evil in my lifetime. I apologize family but I cannot do this prayer this morning. I must leave and go before the Lord and cry my heart out. My heart is just to heavy for me.

    I know how you feel, Desiray. I feel exactly the same with a heavy and saddened heart. The Holy Spirit will convey the words we are looking for.
    It really was chaos and I cannot understand the lack of security. When that man became president, I worried that he would start a war with another country, but he has created civil unrest in his own country and turned American citizens against each other. “Please God that You will bring healing to the u.s.a.” Amen.

    I feel so much better now. My heart is no longer heavy. I serve an amazing God, for when I am in need, He knows exactly what to do.

    I can now finish this morning’s prayer family and friends. Lord, you are our protector and that I will never forget. When the days seems dark your light shines so radiant that the devil must run. I look up to the mountains does my strength come from mountains. No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, earth, and mountains. He will not let you stumble; your Guardian God will not fall asleep. God you guard every step we walk. Your protection covers us from right to left you are always with us. My God had it not been for your Amazing Grace where would we be?

    Thank you, Lord, for hearing us when we call on your name. In Jesus name I pray AMEN!

    My sister Lesley thank you for sharing your heart. I would like for you and I to stand in agreement in prayer that God’s Will BE DONE.

    I thank you in advance. Love you sis.

    You said all that my heart is feeling as well. We want to understand the times we are living in, knowing Christ will come for us as a result of all that is happening. In God’s word we are told that these will occur so we don’t have to fear, only be faithful. But my heart breaks too, to see the division in. the church and leaders either being silent or standing up for things that contradict God’s word. This is hard to watch the church be silent and complacent when so much is at stake. Thank you for what you shared. You always encourage my heart.

    Blessings to you Monica. It is so hard to watch the church be silent and complacent. Let us stand in agreement in prayer about this. AMEN!

    Thank you for sharing your heart too.

  6. Lesley (the English one) 😉 says:

    I would be honoured to stand in agreement with you, Desiray.

    Our Father, Search our hearts, Lord, that we may come before You with a clear conscience. We bring before You the situation of unrest in America and ask that You would bring about a peaceful solution, that the people of this country would be blessed with healing.
    May Your will be done, that love, compassion and peace would touch the hearts of everyone amidst their suffering.
    We thank You, Lord, and have faith that Your love will reign supreme for You are the Way, the Truth and the Life.
    We ask this prayer through the sacrificial blood of Christ and in His most powerful Name. Amen.

  7. desirayl says:

    AMEN! Glory to GOD! Thank you so much for standing in agreement in prayer Lesley.

  8. Lesley (the English one) 😉 says:

    My pleasure, Desiray! 🙌

  9. Why???? This is such an appropriate question. Especially the one regarding the church! Saints need to be watching and praying like never before. It’s not time to stick our heads in the sand though! Wonderful Jesus!

    Hello my sister. Thank you for being apart of the devotional today. It starts with us doing what God says in His word. May we all continue to lift up the body of Christ. So we all can be on one accord like in the book of Acts.

    Blessings to you my dear.

    Blessings to you!
