August 10th --Prayer.

Tom's Journal.

 Brother Jimmy Hood, sent me a  request for prayer that sounded good and proper, with so much merit, IMHO,  so that I could not refuse but to post it on my humble Christian based Blog:  TOM'S JOURNAL.  Unless I stick to my personal regimen every day of prayer and bible reading/ study, I am humanly at risk of being side-tracked, disturbed, lured, distracted to some other thing, and so I welcome and cherish my circle of Christian close friends who 'wake me up' by what ever means, and visa versa.  I love to quote my fav. scriptures, like:  "For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." ~Philippians 1:21., But I have many more in my head, from The Book. 

Please consider and share this date and prayer as I am doing today.  Thank you, Jimmy, and friends.

Warm Regards,
Tom Schuckman 

Subject: A Need For Prayer

Our Sunday school class has recently been studying Jeremiah and the
prophecy he shared with the people of Judah about the upcoming judgment
and  impending captivity by Babylon that they would experience if they
did not  repent and return to the Lord. As a loving God, He gave them
every chance  to change, but because they would not listen to Him, they
experienced His  judgment.

 Most of us today are very troubled by the state of our nation. We have
seen attempts by our elected leaders to legislate God out of the
 While there are still many very committed Believers in our country, in
general we have seen a decline in our country's focus on the leadership
of  our holy Lord. Greed and selfishness have replaced the principles of
honesty and caring for others throughout our land.

 Most of us are aware that our loving heavenly  Father, who is a jealous
God, will not continue indefinitely to tolerate the rebellion He sees.
 Signs of our nation's decline already are appearing, and a greater
calamity may  be just around the corner.

 Believing that God would prefer to see us repent as a nation than to
have  to judge us, I pray for my country regularly. It is my belief that
2  Chronicles 7:14 is as true as ever:

 If My people who are called by My name will 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. (NKJV)

 There is nothing in this scripture that says the majority of a nation
must repent and seek Him, but it does say that if "His people" - that
is, we  Believers - will pray, it will make a difference.

 I am asking everyone I know to join me in praying for our nation.  If
those I know ask everyone they know to pray, we can soon cover thousands
of  Believers and unite in a day of special prayer for our country.

 Will you join me on Wednesday, August 10, in praying at least one hour
(all day if you can!) that the leaders of our government-federal, state,
and local-will change their hearts and make decisions based on God's
leadership or that if their hearts are too hard to change, God will
remove them from  their positions!

 I believe in the power of prayer, and I believe that the mess we are in
is because  of our lack of faith and prayer on behalf of our nation. We
can  make a difference if we will just pray!

 Will you not only join me in this special day of prayer for our country
but also ask everyone you know-family, friends, church members, e-mail
buddies, etc.--to join us in prayer. I believe very strongly that God
will   hear and honor this prayer!

I'm counting on you to unite your prayers with mine. Please mark August
 10 on your calendar. Let's see how many other believers we can
encourage to  join us in prayer. Please do not let God down on this one! 
And....  Another important issue from a loyal American that I trust:

You need to watch this and then forward to everyone you know.
A video that will make you think seriously!   
This is bone chilling and 52% of the voters did this to us by
electing Obama. If you can't play this on your computer
(picture and sound) then send it to someone who can play
it and go watch it with them!
