Give Him 15 – Appeal to Heaven
A Call to a National Day of Repentance on December 30
By Dutch Sheets & Karen Hardin
“After reading Dave Kubal’s article, There was a Spiritual Quid Pro Quo, my heart was grieved over the abuse of America’s power, prominence, and position that we have received from the Lord.
“Ongoing investigations reveal that American officials have been withholding financial aid to other countries for years, unless they agreed to promote abortion and the LGBTQ+ agenda to their citizens. It was OUR country that was blackmailing and bullying to spread immorality.
“While we have no idea how far-reaching these seeds were sown or grown, as a nation we are responsible for the wicked harvest that is the result.
“Now that this evil has been exposed, we are responsible to act.
“We also need to repent for the unjust impeachment of President Trump. This action was not because of his actions (despite the claims of the Democrats), but to cover up crimes and immoral actions of our government leaders. They have used their positions to force the above immorality and corruption upon our nation and other nations.
“Before we enter 2020, we need to repent and cleanse our land.
“We invite you to join us for a National Day of Repentance for our nation over what has transpired to uproot those seeds and call on the Lord to forgive us.
“Will you join us on Monday, December 30th, for a day of fasting and repentance of the evil that has been committed as we forced other countries to embrace and spread immorality and evil in exchange for financial assistance?
“We also need to repent for the spirit of pride and rebellion that has been allowed to rule our nation and shake its fist in defiance as our president was impeached by a completely partisan vote. In the end, it isn’t just President Trump they wish to remove. It is God.” (Karen Hardin)
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9; ESV)
“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer (by Karen Hardin):
We need to first humble ourselves and repent.
We need to ask forgiveness for those we led astray as abortion and the LGBTQ+ agenda were forced into other nations.
We need to repent and be cleansed of the blood on our hands from the abortions traded for aid.
We need to pray that the seeds of immorality and corruption that were spread would wither and die.
We need to pray that those who perpetuated this evil will be revealed, removed from their positions, and prosecuted.
We need to cancel any partnership or alliance with the demonic realm, whether that is through an organization, a country, or an individual, and that all such partnerships will be brought to light and cancelled.
Most importantly, we need to pray for revival in our land.
A prayer you can pray (by Karen Hardin):
Father God, we humble ourselves before You and repent as a nation. Lord God, we have sinned. We have used the prominent position and blessings you have given us as a weapon to force immorality and murder upon other countries. Lord, we repent. We ask for your forgiveness.
We ask that those seeds be uprooted from other countries and our own. We speak to them now and say, “Wither and die along with any ongoing harvest.” In their place, we speak revival. We ask that you would cleanse our land and the blight we have put on other nations in which this evil was perpetuated.
Lord, we ask that those who have been involved in these heinous crimes be revealed, removed from their positions, and prosecuted. Lord, stop them from continuing any ongoing actions. We also ask that they will have a Damascus Road encounter with you and that the hardness of their hearts will be turned to hearts of flesh, tender to your Word.
Lord, we ask you to save us. We ask for your help. We repent that we have been asleep and allowed such corruption, because we were not praying for our leaders as You commanded. Lord, we thank you for our president and His stand for you. We ask that you would deliver him and deliver us from those who are intent on removing You from our nation. In Jesus’ righteous Name, amen.
We humble ourselves and ask You, Lord, to please heal and cleanse our land.
We will continue having ladies’ Bible study, but we are flexible about time, around travel. Please communicate by emailing sharon@JesusNameAustin.org.
Right now, we have an international flair. We are very welcoming of people from other countries. Please don’t be shy to join.
We are about to study Philemon. Great surprise: Hidden in the last few verses, Paul demonstrates some resolving of previous conflicts. Fun.
Our prayer series on The Great Shalom has ended, but you may get audio at www.greatshalom.org and wherever you get your podcasts.
We have for at 2 weeks been celebrating Purim, the feast remembering Esther, Mordecai, and the TURNAROUND a hidden God created through these faithful servants, when a wicked enemy wanted to annihilate the entire people of God.
We were told by Pastor Mahesh Chavda that we would have a blessing if we would read Esther in this season. We noted how anti-semitism was being voiced as never before in our Congress. We now celebrate what Prime Minister Netanyahu is calling “a Purim miracle” in having our president declare that the Golan Heights are an integral part of Israel (as they were when they were given to the tribes of Dan and Mannasseh, the occupants now not living, and even though the British illegally gave it away, and even though it was taken in the War of 1967 in response to an attack on Israel.)
Remembering the blessings of Abraham, we rejoice. We, in alignment with the authority we are under, receive and release Purim blessings of turnaround. Further, a lamb for a household. The blessings are for you and your household. Please see Pastors Chavda speaking blessing over families, including those attacked by divorce and drugs. March 24, 2019
If you want a quick but deep and impactful series on prayer, “tune in” to http://www.greatshalom.org. In 4 weeks there will be a series about prayer: how to start in a life of prayer, how to receive answers, how to go deep in communion with God, and particularly how to pray for your children. You may listen right on the website or you may wish to subscribe to the podcast – on the site, on iTunes or however you prefer.
We take personal prayer seriously — not as a strict rule, but as an inviting, intriguing, refreshing, joyous time. It is worth doing. It is worth diving into deeply. There have been too many “you must do this” and not enough deep dives. This series gives you both.
