ELUL, PRAYERS ON THE 9TH DAY

We are steadily trying to obtain and maintain a place of consecration. Yet, in the midst of our focus on these priorities, we are constantly bombarded by more bad news…..,more wickedness, more injustice, more killings, baseless hatred and injustice is relentless. Evil invades our space.

Yet, we will persist and stand against it until the wicked devices our enemies are brought down.

August 28th: TODAY WE ARE READING & PRAYING PSALMS 98-104

Ref: ELUL, OUR 29 DAY BANQUET OF PRAYER… TO HONOR THE KING OF GLORY!

Psalm 97:10-12

We will not be discouraged, we will not give up, we will not relent, we will pursue mercy and justice with every fiber of our being.

We who love the Lord and hate evil: GOD preserveth the souls of his saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

We will rejoice in the Lord, and give thanks at the remembrance of His Holiness.

We Will Sing Over The Nations… Until Justice Flows Through the Streets for Everyone!

Psalm 98

The right hand of GOD will gives us the victory! GOD will do marvelous things in our eyes, in this generation, for our sons and daughters, for our friends and neighbors, in my lifetime

The world will sing a new song, not one of death, destructions and hate. We shall sing of justice, mercy , love and truth.

We shall sing of the salvation of the LORD, how our brothers and sister saved from harm, the innocent, not proven guilty in the courts, shall not be tried and executed in the streets no longer.

The LORD has made known His Salvation, His Yeshua. His righteousness He has openly shown in the sight of the heathen.

He has remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel and the seed of Abraham: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

Sing unto the Lord with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.

6With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King.

Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together

Before the Lord; for he cometh to judge the earth: and we are His Ambassadors in the earth.

But our report to the LORD is grim.

Your people go without shelter, health care and food. Some are being shot down in the streets in front of their children, their spouses, their neighbors. The courts heap on financial burdens and perpetuate cycles of desperation, execution or imprisonment. The sick have little or no resources, some have no place to heal or recover, poverty and plague move against us.

Poor leadership strangles the voices of righteous leaders, who sought to pursue their own gain, their own survival, while they use corrupt and legitimate authority of this earth to stifle, miseducate, and misdirect the public, who are too tired, too confused, too helpless, too hopeless, too distraught, too unbelieving or too believing for their own good. Perhaps, some are just too apathetic to manage their own government. Are they too fearful? or too complacent, too comfortable with corruption and compromise?

Those that had held their peace for so long, were detained at home by sickness and disease, which caused us to be home while Rome was burning, and they took to the streets in protest. Some to say, enough is enough. Some to say, they were being choked by baseless hatred and bigotry, so much so they could not longer breath. Some to say, I support this fight, it’s my fight. I choose to be a part of the solution, I refuse to stand by and just watch unrighteousness continue… and some to take aim and strike and stab under the cloak of darkness, to fuel hate and bitterness, to tear down and destroy– taking advantage of cries for justice to further their own ambitions to kill, steal and destroy.

Justice has been exchanged for prejudice, bias, and hate. Righteousness has been exchanged for corruption, integrity for perversion, decency for depravity.

The righteous feel outnumbered and overwhelmed. Some feel that prayer can not handle the weight of all of the suffering. Some feel that justice is overpowered by kindness, mercy, faith, love are not the weapons that we can use against this strain of evil. Some claim that love is but a mat used to welcome the oppressors and give them license for dishonesty, duplicity and guile.

Despite all this, we have seen good too, in the land of the living, LORD. We have witnessed genuine caring, compassion… intentional efforts to show love for another. The world is crying out for justice and mercy and peace… and our cries have created a shift toward thoughtfulness, consideration, reflection…

With righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.

Psalm 99:7-8

We will keep Your Testimonies, and the Word that you gave us.

You always answer us Lord and this will be no different, as we enter your gates with thanksgiving.

Ps 101: 6, 8

Your eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with You.

Remove the wicked from our land, cut off all the wicked doers from the city of the LORD.

Ps 102:1-2, 7, 15, 19,

Hear our prayer LORD, and let our cry come unto thee… Hide not Your face from us in the day when we are in trouble, incline thine ear unto us. in the day when we call, answer us speedily.

We stand the watch LORD, as a sparrow alone upon the house top.

The wicked come before us and fear the Name the LORD, and all the kings of the earth fear thy glory. Send Your Name before all the wicked of the earth that mean us harm and our children and neighbors harm.

Look down from Your Sanctuary, from Heaven and behold the earth. Hear the groaning of the prisoners and the innocents, and loose those that are appointed to death. Send angels to protect them from those that seek and/or take pleasure in seeking their life.

We are but the dust that you created from the beginning,

Psalm 103: 14-15

A flower in Your field… Yet, We Shall Flourish. We choose to rise to the full measure, and the full stature of Yeshua, Our LORD.

The children of your servants shall continue in the path of righteousness, and our seed shall be established before You.

We call forth repair, restoration, recovery, rectification, and restitution for Your People and their children’s children–generational protection and blessings,

Save their seed, restore justice to the land, protect us LORD, defend our right to pass through the Kings Forest.

AMEN.
