    Y'all.....I'm going to 100% honest...I'm scared right now. I'm trying to calm down and remember who is in control...but the way things are going with this election, has me thinking some kind of war is coming. I mean to hear both sides...to see hundreds of military present...
    I don't support them...Biden or Trump..in fact how do we know they are not working together. I hate this division..and its getting worse.

    I keep hearing people say something is coming..get ready..stock up for 2 weeks. Is anyone else unsettled about this situation?
    (And I know) that we are suppose to be brave...trust God...but at the same time I feel a storm is coming.

    Pray to God. Here are some prayers and Psalms I HIGHLY recommend, all from the Holy Bible.

    The Lord's Prayer (NKJV) (Matthew 6:5-14)
    Read Out Loud After 6:00 AM & 6:00 PM
    9 In this manner, therefore, pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    Hallowed be Your name.
    10 Your kingdom come.
    Your will be done
    On earth as it is in heaven.
    11 Give us this day our daily bread.
    12 And forgive us our debts,
    As we forgive our debtors.
    13 And do not lead us into temptation,
    But deliver us from the evil one.
    For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

    Psalm 91 (NKJV) - Prayer For Protection
    Read Out Loud After 6:00 AM & 6:00 PM

    1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
    Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
    2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
    My God, in Him I will trust.”

    3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
    And from the perilous pestilence.
    4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
    And under His wings you shall take refuge;
    His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
    5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
    Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
    6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
    Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

    7 A thousand may fall at your side,
    And ten thousand at your right hand;
    But it shall not come near you.
    8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
    And see the reward of the wicked.

    9 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
    Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
    10 No evil shall befall you,
    Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
    11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
    To keep you in all your ways.
    12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
    Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
    13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
    The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

    14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
    I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
    15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble;
    I will deliver him and honor him.
    16 With long life I will satisfy him,
    And show him My salvation.”

    Psalm 40 (NKJV) - Prayer For Faith
    Read Out Loud After 6:00 AM & 6:00 PM

    1 I waited patiently for the Lord;
    And He inclined to me,
    And heard my cry.
    2 He also brought me up out of a horrible pit,
    Out of the miry clay,
    And set my feet upon a rock,
    And established my steps.
    3 He has put a new song in my mouth—
    Praise to our God;
    Many will see it and fear,
    And will trust in the Lord.

    4 Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust,
    And does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
    5 Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works
    Which You have done;
    And Your thoughts toward us
    Cannot be recounted to You in order;
    If I would declare and speak of them,
    They are more than can be numbered.

    6 Sacrifice and offering You did not desire;
    My ears You have opened.
    Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require.
    7 Then I said, “Behold, I come;
    In the scroll of the book it is written of me.
    8 I delight to do Your will, O my God,
    And Your law is within my heart.”

    9 I have proclaimed the good news of righteousness
    In the great assembly;
    Indeed, I do not restrain my lips,
    O Lord, You Yourself know.
    10 I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart;
    I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation;
    I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth
    From the great assembly.

    11 Do not withhold Your tender mercies from me, O Lord;
    Let Your lovingkindness and Your truth continually preserve me.
    12 For innumerable evils have surrounded me;
    My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up;
    They are more than the hairs of my head;
    Therefore my heart fails me.

    13 Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me;
    O Lord, make haste to help me!
    14 Let them be ashamed and brought to mutual confusion
    Who seek to destroy my life;
    Let them be driven backward and brought to dishonor
    Who wish me evil.
    15 Let them be confounded because of their shame,
    Who say to me, “Aha, aha!”

    16 Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
    Let such as love Your salvation say continually,
    “The Lord be magnified!”
    17 But I am poor and needy;
    Yet the Lord thinks upon me.
    You are my help and my deliverer;
    Do not delay, O my God.

    PSALM 131 (NKJV) – Prayer for Hope
    Read Out Loud After 6:00 AM & 6:00 PM

    1 Lord, my heart is not haughty,
    Nor my eyes lofty.
    Neither do I concern myself with great matters,
    Nor with things too profound for me.

    2 Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul,
    Like a weaned child with his mother;
    Like a weaned child is my soul within me.

    3 O Israel, hope in the Lord
    From this time forth and forever

    God is our refuge and strength - a very "present" help in trouble. Ps 46:1.
    This day and age reminds me of praying through Psalms 91 and what a blessing that is.

    Pray that truth and justice will rise to the surface and that peace will result when we turn to God with our whole heart.

    These are very trying times. If someone wasn’t concerned I’d think them to be naive.

    For the most part it is theatrics as they jockey for position in their reality show season. This is bigger than the US of A. Can't tickle your ears, sorry. Human saviours cannot save us from the mess they have created in order to call themselves saviours. Sadly the only happy ending in man's world is what God promised.

    Amen. I don't hear this statement enough among fellow believers within my circles of believing friends and loved ones. Unsettling.
    Continue to stay in prayer. Luke 18:1 Jesus told us that we ought to always pray and never get tired of doing so. These times are a reminder.

    2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

    Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

    Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

    Psalm 91:4 He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.


    I hate the division, too. We need to avoid becoming a part of it. Stand up and speak out for what you believe in, without becoming hateful. Pray for your enemies and opponents.

    I don't see "war" coming. At least, not in the traditional sense that we often picture, with bombs and tanks and such. The war being waged in America right now is a war of information, and a war for peoples' minds. Compliant people are easy to control. Silenced people are easy to dismiss.

    I'm not afraid. If you start to feel afraid, read those Scriptures that I posted above. Turn off social media and the news, and turn on worship music or read your Bible aloud.

    Jesus is President of an entirely different system and government than anything man comes up with. He is an outside threat to them and His system will destroy man's system soon enough. Left and right will finally unite to battle Him.

    We are not to concern ourselves with politics, as there is no political solution to our woes. The descendants of Cain inherited this world through the right of first-born inheritance, and their lineage is in direct control of many government and media establishments. Christ confirmed them as the current "princes of this world" in the Gospel of John.

    As long as we remain faithful, we will be protected, clothed, and fed. Christ taught that when we concern ourselves first with the Kingdom of Heaven, then the practical necessities of life will be provided to us. Study to show yourself approved, remain faithful. Let that be an exultation of your faith, and a means of deliverance from the tribulations to come. Whatever you do, don't hinge your faith on any political leader. They will all fail you in the end. Only God can adequately protect you. Concern yourself with what is right in His eyes, and not with what is right in the eyes of fallible men.
