Tragedy In Boston

I am sitting here in New Zealand and coupled with my recent trip to South Africa, I have been out of the country for a long while. I just heard about Boston and the tragic explosion that occurred at the Boston Marathon.

I must admit, as I began to intercede for Boston and our nation, I began to physically cry for America. Being in a foreign country and hearing about such a tragedy makes me realize how much I love America and want God to come to our nation.

I am not ignorant to the weaknesses of our nation. From political to economic, to the breakup of the family unit, or to the potential release of the new American one-dollar coin that would no longer state “In God We Trust”. Each of us could go on and on about the weaknesses of our nation.

But, as I realized how much I want America to run to God, I also realized how much I love my nation. Then immediately, God said, “Oh Ken, I wish you could understand how much I love America and in particular my creation who resides in America.”

It is not too late for God to overwhelm our nation with His presence, power and love. My friends, do not fret, God still loves our nation. He has given America to us (the praying church) as our inheritance.

Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, and the very ends of the earth as Your possession. (Psalms 2:8)

    This post made me cry.

    I’m currently reading Mighty Prevailing Prayer by Wesley L. Duewel and I pray that I will learn more about prayer from this teaching. I’ve already learned from the first chapter and looking forward to a closer walk with the Lord and in His strengthening of the spiritual gift of intercession that He has placed in me.

    Please, will you keep this in your prayers? I’m reminded of this Scripture, Matthew 9:37-38 says, (AMP) “Then He said to His disciples, The Harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few. So pray to the Lord of the harvest to force out and thrust laborers into His harvest.“

    Blessings, Jennifer
