Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee invites us to keep a day of prayer and repentance for our national leaders from local school leader all up to the President. As believers we are commanded to pray for our leaders: “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. ” 1. Tim.2:1,2.
This is unbelievable horror: January 23 of this year represents the 40th anniversary of the most heinous and vicious lawsuit ever in the USA: Roe vs. Wade. The death sentence of over 50 million unborn babies. Arrogant judges ruled that in the case of the unborn it is legal to kill. God says: Thou shalt not kill. We cannot premeditate to kill an innocent life. And while this infamous anniversary is approaching a deceived people has nothing better to do than to re-inaugurate the most pro-abortion president ever. 40 years of error and killing and has anybody learned the lesson yet? When is it ever going to end?
A nation is being deluded by a leader who wants to infringe on the right to keep and bear arms in order to “protect children” while at the same time he will proudly proclaim the right to kill children in the womb. What hypocrisy! We all know that personal gun ownership serves to protect homes and families form intruders. Good people need the means to defend themselves against the attacks of evil. Remember how Abraham armed his trained servants to fight to liberate his nephew Lot who became a captive of war. Genesis 14:14. It is wrong to use firearms as an aggressor to kill, steal or destroy. But there is a time to use weapons for defense, liberation and protection. It is total hypocrisy that leaders who have their own children protected by armed guards in school will not allow ordinary citizens to use firearms for the protection of their children. God bless that US soldier who stood guard in front of his child’s school after the horrible school shooting. We cannot prevent guns from getting into the hands of bad people. We need to make sure that the good never have to surrender their constitutional right. No matter what. Americans need to be an armed people. The Chinese, the Iranian president and every other foreign or domestic enemy needs to see that this is an armed citizenry that if necessary can defend itself without government-sponsored armies. It is hypocrisy that an American president would dare to disarm Americans with arrogant executive orders like a dictator but give US weapons systems such as tanks and F-16 fighter jets to a sharia-run Muslim state run by militant Muslim Brotherhood thugs. This makes no sense and we don’t have time till 2016 to wait for that nonsense to end.
Frankly, we need to pray for president Obama that God would change his heart. God can turn a Saul into a Paul. My prayer is that Obama will have a genuine experience from nature to grace – a new birth. Jesus said we must be born again or we will not enter into God’s kingdom. By nature we are in peril of perishing in hell. Therefore, we must be saved so we can live with Jesus in the New Heaven and New Earth. The old heaven and earth we see now will pass away, so we need to make sure we are prepared for more: living in God’s kingdom. The best thing that can happen is for President Obama to have an encounter with a living God that will turn him forever pro-life, pro-marriage & family and truly pro God in public. He must learn this nation’s Christian heritage and roots. What better thing could happen to him personally as a husband and father of 2 girls but to give his life to Jesus Christ, change his ways, and use the remainder of his administration to do that which is good for America: strengthen religious freedom, protect unborn life, family and traditional marriage. Ensure that health workers have conscience rights so nobody can force a health worker to provide abortion pills. Reverse the HHS mandate and sincerely apologize to Hobby Lobby. Apologize to Neavy Seal Team 6 and dedicate himself to honor the military and appreciate their sacrifice. End America’s error with China and commit to Made in the USA. A lot needs to get done to restore righteousness.
The Obama administration has taken such anti-American initiatives that we can’t wait till 2016 to reverse 8 years of national error. Today is the day of repentance. Photo: © 2013 Ingo Breuer
Take time to keep praying and fasting for our leaders to get their wisdom from the King James Bible and not from liberal think tanks or the expectations or wishes of Europeans, Asians or Arabs. No American has the need to lust after a European way of life. Therefore, all attempts must be thwarted to see the US decline to become another mediocre socialistic nation deep in debt and with no faith in the living God. Take time to pray for our leaders in authority – from your local school leader and mayor all the way up to state and national leaders. They need to get in line with God’s principles. Maybe the answer to prayer may come in the form of a country preacher getting into the path of those in authority and telling them the old, old story of Jesus and His redeeming love and reasoning with them about righteousness just as John the Baptist got in the way of Herod to rebuke him on what is not right in God’s sight. Leaders need to become concerned with what is right in the eyes of God because we are under God. It always ends tragic when someone acts like there is no God above him.

Today is the day to repent of abortion, confess the sin of same-sex inordinate affection, support for wicked regimes, yielding to communist China. Today is the day to return to the old country church, the old-fashioned mourner’s bench, the King James Bible , the old hymnal and denying all ungodliness and worldly lusts (Titus 2:11-13). Today is a day to pray.
