|What The Bible Says Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice|
Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In my Bible the servants of God do not pray the mercy, grace, or salvation of God on their enemies. Some of David's imprecatory psalms (et. al. 109, 69, 70) are almost embarrassingly counter to Christ's command, “Love your enemies.” He prayed, “Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into thy righteousness” (Ps 69:27). We face some bitter enemies of the cross of Christ. Some are leaders of our nation and we need not shy away from such vitriol. Look at what Nehemiah prayed for those who opposed the work of God: “Hear, O our God; for we are despised: and turn their reproach upon their own head, and give them for a prey in the land of captivity” (Neh 4:4). When the leaders of a country are leading into paths of unrighteousness, they are deserving of God's judgment. When the whole country is following they will soon be as deserving. “LORD God judge our leaders and bring them down in their confusion. Father have mercy on this mislead nation and forgive her vile trespasses. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, your Only Begotten Son, our Saviour, and for his names sake I ask. Amen, and amen.” Pray for America. There are no solutions coming from this Clinton/Trump election.
New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms writes:
New York's 27 Members of Congress consist of 18 Democrats and nine Republicans. Four New York Members of Congress - Reps. Steve Israel (D-NY3), Charles Rangel (D-NY13), Chris Gibson (R-NY19), and Richard Hanna (R-NY22) - are not seeking re-election. Notable New York congressional races are occurring in New York's First, 19th, 22nd, and 24th Districts.
Please pray for New York State, one of the most progressive, liberal, and socialistic states of the Union.
