Let's laugh and pray

In all things my heart seeks to glorify God. In the day to day humdrum of life I look for joy, and I like to laugh. I often pray that God will allow me to be a source of joy and laughter to others. That's why I make this post.

I've said before that I'm not politically correct and I don't try to be. I don't mean to be disrespectful, but I don't intended to bow or bend in the wind of what is popular in our land. Our nation and our government is in a mess. We need answers, solutions, wisdom, guidance, and maybe even a miracle. We talk about our problems and the mistakes our leaders make. We worry, complain, gripe and criticize, but do we pray? I mean really pray for our leaders with fervor?

I've never seen Tim Hawkins in person, though I'd like to, but I'm a fan because of video. This guy is gifted for sure.

I hope this video will make you smile, even laugh. But more than that, I hope it will give you subject matter for your prayer time.

Sit back, watch and enjoy this video of Mr. Hawkins, then pray for our country's leadership. Ask God to give them a desire for godliness, wisdom, revelation of truth, and anything else the Spirit brings to mind.

May God bless America.

Hey Lavonda! I just responded to you via email. Please let me know when you receive it.

I SO agree with what you said here in this post. In addition to praying for our leaders is this...

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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

God's people pray for the land to be healed but we have not humbled ourselves and turned from our wicked ways. We are far too tolerant and have handed this nation over to the enemy.

Now I'm going to go watch the video. :)

I'm sorry I didn't leave it for you in the last comment. (duh) :)

If you're thinking about doing P365 you should. It really is fun and there is no pressure. I did it most of last year, missed a few months but was able to pick back up. This year I have already missed the last two weeks. Took the pictures just didn't get them posted. :)

Email me. :)
