#21daysofprayer and beyond 🙏#prayfirst Genuine heartfelt repentance and prayer is the pathway to restoration.

Pray for all who lead and are in authority first.

Repent. Turn. Change your mind, your heart, and your direction. Return to the Lord with ALL your heart.  

Fast, weep, and experience fellowship with the Lord restored. God is merciful above all others, and loves us ALL like no other.  He is a God of restoration and The Restorer of ALL things – hearts, souls, lands, and nations. 
The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live. He wants not only us but everyone saved, you know, everyone to get to know the truth we’ve learned: that there’s one God and only one, and one Priest-Mediator between God and us—Jesus, who offered himself in exchange for everyone held captive by sin, to set them all free. Eventually the news is going to get out. This and this only has been my appointed work: getting this news to those who have never heard of God, and explaining how it works by simple faith and plain truth. Since prayer is at the bottom of all this, what I want mostly is for men to pray—not shaking angry fists at enemies but raising holy hands to God. And I want women to get in there with the men in humility before God, not primping before a mirror or chasing the latest fashions but doing something beautiful for God and becoming beautiful doing it. 1 Timothy 2:1-10 (The Message)

If Jesus felt He had to pray, how much more do we need to pray.
A prayerless Christian is a powerless Christian.
Heaven is full of answers to prayer for which no one ever bothered to ask.

The Best

God has given us His best.  The question is:  have we given Him our best?
Giving God our best does not mean that God is calling any of us to work ourselves to a burned out and frazzled state in the name of loving and serving God.

Honor Keeps It / Dishonor Depletes It

What you honor moves toward you.
What you dishonor moves away from you.
Or, another way to put it is:
Honor holds onto it; dishonor dissipates it.
This is one of the reasons many lack wisdom.
