7-31-14 Zap 'em With a Lightning Bolt, Lord!

 "I'll pray for our President, I'll pray God kills him." I was amazed when I heard that statement.  I thought of the Sons of Thunder (Mark 3:17) - the nickname Jesus gave James and John because of the event noted in today's verses.

I don't see Jesus sanctioning this kind of prayer regarding anyone.  In fact, He told them that they didn't know what spirit they were of. They didn't recognize Satan working in their hearts. Jesus didn't come to hurt people, but to save them.

Thus, our prayer for our President, or anyone else for that matter, is that they get saved and seek guidance from God.  What a wonderful thing it would be to see our President surrender his heart to Jesus! What a tremendous change would happen in our country to see our Vice-President and members of congress trust Jesus as Savior. 

I pray for our country and our leaders to allow Jesus into their hearts. I have been praying for revival in our country, but some areas of our country need a Great Awakening. Pray with me for our country, its leaders and other lost people you know.

"And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.  For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village." Luke 9:54-56.
