Jesus’ final and greatest act of love for the whole world also included a more obscure act of love for one person. While hanging on the cross, He still had the selflessness to assign someone to care for His mother. When focused on a mission for the kingdom of God, we should never forget the little details, that one person. (John 19:26)
If we’re focused on the lack, we won’t see the provision.
If we’re focused on the choas, we won’t see the peace.
If we’re focused on the danger, we won’t see the protection.
If we’re focused on the hurt, we won’t see the love.
Focus on Jesus!
We’ve recently seen God move in our nation in a supernatural way. What seemed to be impossible was made possible! Why? Because the Body of Christ PRAYED and VOTED. If you’re like me, though, you wondered if your one, lone prayer would make a difference. If you had that thought, know it was just the devil trying to keep you from praying at all – because he knows it does work! If every Christian believed that their prayer wouldn’t accomplish anything, then nothing would be accomplished in the Kingdom of God! Obviously, if God commands us to pray, it’s because He knows the power in it!
I am so thankful for my brothers and sisters in Christ who prayed and will continue to pray for the USA. Though we may have rallied during the most important election of our nation, we still need God desperately. The battle isn’t over, but as we pray, much will be accomplished! (James 5:16)
Please see below a powerful gathering of believers in Israel as they prayed for our election. We are blessed to have other countries rallying in prayer to help us! Below is a list of prayer Scriptures to build your faith. Don’t stop praying!
Matthew 7:7-15 7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone?10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

1 John 5:14-15 14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
