Re: [Prayers] A TIME TO PRAY........

Joseph, Thank you for this post, I too am Christian and believe that God has ordained this war. I have included a few verses that help me and hopefully they will help someone else. I hope I don't get in trouble for posting so much information. (I also meant to put Psalms 91 - for protection). This war is more then just a "war," it is written. I hope that everyone will read Revelations. There is truly a blessing in reading the final chapter of the Bible. Peace and God be with you all. Also, the place where our military is now fighting was known as Babylon in Biblical times.

Psa 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
*The children of Israel are God's chosen people. Those that defend them are blessed, those that are against them are cursed.

Psa 121:4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

2Ch 6:32 Moreover concerning the stranger, which is not of thy people Israel, but is come from a far country for thy great name's sake, and thy mighty hand, and thy stretched out arm; if they come and pray in this house;

Jer 30:10 Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make [him] afraid.

1Jo 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith.

Rev 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, [and] over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

Psa 80:14 Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;

Deu 20:3 And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them;

Luk 18:1 And he spake a parable unto them [to this end], that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

Exd 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

Mat 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

2Cr 5:8 We are confident, [I say], and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Rev 21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

Christians, stay focused, don't slumber....


: I am unaware of the religious affiliations of many of the people
: who frequent this here message board, but I can assume that many
: of you do believe in a supreme being, and many of you do have
: sincere minds and hearts; even those who just so happen not to
: even believe in a supreme being, but I know that you have hearts
: and souls. My point here is simple: There is a time to pray,
: pray for positiveness, though there is much negativeness in this
: world, my belief that through prayer those negativeness will be
: overwhelmed by that which is positiveness. What I am also
: preferring to is the war with/in Iraq at this time...and my
: feeling is that through prayer this war has got to end and yes
: in the positive way. I can and will say that He Whom I pray to
: is God, Creator of the World, and to His Son Jesus Christ, Lord
: and Saviour, Prince of Peace. So Pray On, and Peace Be With Us
: All and Everyone throughout this World. Amen. Joseph
