Praying God's Will For Trump
In my lifetime I had never known such irrational rage against a
public figure. Of course, such madness could only best be understood as Satanic. Therefore, the entire year had to be given over to intercessory prayer.
Following is the way I prayed. Praying what I believe to be the Lord’s will, I daily ran past Him what I believed, asking Him to correct me if wrong. First, I said I believed He would want a Supreme Court which would support His church. Secondly, I believed He would not want a political party who would make it illegal to mention His name even in public.
We are taught that when we do intercessory prayer, we are to put Him in remembrance of what is written in His Word. So, I reminded Him of Moses telling Him that if He let His people be destroyed, the Egyptians would say that their God had led them out to the desert in order to slaughter them. My understanding of this event was that Moses was saying Yahweh would not only be humiliating him, Moses, but He would be humiliating Himself.
How does that idea apply? Well, during this election year, God had revealed to some of His best prophets that Trump is to be our next president. And, among them were two that I partner with–Sid Roth of It’s Supernatural and Rick Joyner of Morningstar Ministries.
Therefore, my daily prayer was “Father do not let your prophets be humiliated.” I have to admit that when all Hell was breaking out, my faith was sorely tested. So, Praise His Holy Name, I can now exhale.
