    "All righty then," America you have chosen a path that is a lustful one. You desire the riches of others while your laziness may well mean the life of the most innocent.

    I will stand in the gap for their behalf as law after law will pass to snuff out their life before they can look upon their mother's face.

    I will stand in the gap as the lustful seek to deepen their sin by marriage and adoptive rights become theirs.

    I will stand in the gap while others use the IRS to prey on the rich's of those that have worked all their lives to support their families.

    I will stand in the gap and pray for all mine elected officials as they seek to promote justices with ungodly agendas.

    I will stand in the gap as our Pastors are imprisoned for speech against your lusts.

    May God Almighty give us strength to stand against this lustful generation.

    This is what you have to say to someone offering prayer. yeah, right.
    All over the country last night obama voters told of being 1 issue voters, greed, money, give me, give me, give me.
    I think his prayers fit perfectly what obama worshippers told the nation.

    Congratulations again to Florida for contributing so well to our electoral process, kind of like 2000.

    And now, ladies and gentlemen, for your entertainment, I would like to announce that Florida's 27 electoral votes are awarded to Barack Obama.

    Fortunately, my hope is not set on Washington and the one in the Oval Office. My hope is the God of Heaven, the God who sits on the Throne.

    Yes, Pal, I will join you in prayer. I will not make light of our need to pray for our country. The needs have been great, and now they will be greater.

    (Ken, laugh all you want about prayer. Those of us who aren't laughing at praying might be praying for you too.)

    The gaps are getting bigger and bigger, aren't they? God bless you for realizing this and wanting to do something about it.

    I agree

    People don't realize and most people have not realized it, that President Barack Obama is actually a moderate Republican, he really does mean to find consensus.

    KenH, hey thanks for your perserverance, you took a lot of grief, I for one celebrate with you , thanks for your wisdom and the hope that you impart.

    you really do see the glass half full <oversized image deleted - please review the posting rule #12 regarding image size, thank you - LE>

    Christians mocking prayer.
    I see the socialist brand of non religion is taking effect already.

    This has been going on for at least the last eight years. Where have you been?

    If Christians would stand up and minister to young women who find themselves in trouble, pregnant, single and with no options, instead of whining about who got elected, the abortion total would be headed downward tomorrow.

    Where have you been for the last eight years, when Bush was supposedly against abortion, but did nothing to stop it? Where are the Christians who should have been holding Republican politicians accountable for lying to us by promising they would do something when all they wanted was our vote?

    It is time to stand in the gap, and for Christians to quit whining, get up off their hands and do some real ministry instead of depending on lying, evil, corrupt politicians to do their work for them.

    I've been volunteering at a crisis pregnancy center, and helping a couple who is trying to adopt.

    Where have you been?

    Providing pro-bono legal services to couples who adopt children through a ministry that works with runaways and street kids who wind up getting pregnant and then having no means of taking care of their kids. My wife and I also volunteer once a week at a crisis pregnancy center and I have led our church to make that ministry a mission project that it supports through volunteers and through a monthly financial gift.

    (high-fives JM)

    Then we are brothers in arms. Thank you for serving on the front lines. May your number increase.

    (BTW, the "where have you been" comment sounded more accusatory than I meant to sound. My apologies...it was rooted more in curiosity than accusation)

    Bravo. Good post. There needs to be a little less talk and a lot more action. Many of us are working at these things, but just because you or I are doing these things there needs to be MORE!

    Neither party gave us choice others than the ones which people fought over on this board. What few ever acknowledged was that both parties are directing us away from republic form of Constitutional government into democrasized socialism. No matter whether you voted for Republican or Democrat, if you had another choice and didn't take it.... then you voted for socializm and globalism, and the party which will take us there fastest is our new leadership.

    Of 56 thousand votes casts for McCain, and 20 thousand casts for Obama, 195 votes were casts in my county standing for Constitutional government and laws based upon Christian principals and for Chuck Baldwin.

    No one may doubt where 195 people in my county stand..... but even in Christian cilrcles and in the county I know there are about 75 thousand people whose vote did not count because they did nothing by voting with the masses to change the direction of their party! And of that 56 thousand, I'm not that assured that they have the back bone to stand in the gap as the OP suggest.

    May God help us all!

    I don't know what you do for a living, but you might have a future in comedy, or possibly writing fiction.

    I hope your right there UTUBE. Of course from where I am standing both Bush and McCain were liberal republicans. The last moderate republican we had was W's daddy and the last real conservative was Regan.

    I guess it depends on where your standing in the political spectrum. There are not too many guys right of me.

    Jack Matthews;

    Your work is commendable. I serve in any way that I can. I have and will continue to be of service to low income families. I have done many things to help. I do not have to boast of the fact that I have bought clothing and food for a single mother family helping her to sustain her young children while her children's father served a prison sentence. I even gave her a full size refrigerator for her to be able to keep baby formula.

    Now that I have been forced to boast of this action, I humbly give my Savior Lord and Master Jesus the Christ and Son of the Living God the credit for having let me to be able to serve Him in this and other cases.

    Now Jack, may your work be blessed as you seek to serve Him.

    And Thank you for your admonition it is quite unwarranted. Again I will continue to stand in the gap by prayer and deed when called upon to do so.

    Mel

    I just have to ask... have you checked out his voting in both the Ill and US Senate. He's one of the most liberal we have.

    Oh, wait... I get it... You made a joke! That's it!

    Ken....

    Shame on you...and I pray for God to extend grace to you. In the Word we are told that men will mock God, it just surprized me that you would be one of the men who mocked God through this prayer. A while back you wrote me about my calling those who voted for Obama, "idiots. You were right, it was a bad witness to those who visit this site. Well, your response was probably as bad as what you pointed out to me.

    As for your prophetic prayer Palatka51, I agree with all the Spirit has spoken unto to you this day. This is a righteous and much need Word from God, and I readily receive it.

    Shalom,

    Pastor Paul
