I wanted to share a letter that I am sending to my Mother because I got this word while I was on my treadmill. I am hoping that she will share it with her Sunday school class (who I believe it was intended to be read to). If you believe it will inspire any other mature, Christian believers in America, feel free to pass on.
The letter reads:
It is such an honor and privilege to bring what I believe is a message from the Lord to you this morning.
I was on my treadmill a few weeks ago and God began to clearly speak to me about the greatest generation that ever lived. My dearest elders in the Lord, that is you!
First of all, I thank you on behalf of the Baby Boomers, Generation X, Generation Y & Gen. Z for all of the sacrifices you made to continue the legacy of “one nation under God”.
I believe God is saying He has an assignment for you before He takes you home to glory. That mission is to pray for those that you will be leaving behind.
Many of you have already given up hope on America. You are watching the news and reading the paper and saying things like “We will never recover”. I implore you to break agreement with the terrorism mindset and come into agreement with what God has for this nation.
I was in worship in September and had a vision of the American flag waving in the wind. A wine cup tipped over in the spirit and spilled down from the heavens. I heard the Lord say “I am not not done with you yet”. I know that a revival has begun.
I felt the urgency that day on the treadmill as the Holy Spirit brought up in me the following verse: Proverbs 16:31New King James Version (NKJV) 31 The silver-haired head is a crown of glory, If it is found in the way of righteousness.
I felt like He was saying that you are our “secret weapon”. I am urging you and begging you to not stop praying for this country.
James 5:16 says:
Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
It doesn’t matter if you feel like the righteous. You are the righteous, because of Christ! We must have your prayers. It is not too late!
You have a crown of glory on your head because of your age. The Lord reveres the aged even if many people in this country no longer do. He wants your prayers to shake the heavens and the earth right now. It is your most important task from now until you go home to be with Him.
Many of you may have lost your spouses. Many of you have children who no longer come to visit. You may feel alone or just don’t feel very useful any more because of illnesses and/or handicaps. I am telling you that if you can pray and confess with your mouth good things about our country, you are like a mighty arrow in the hand of Father.
Psalm 21:11-13New King James Version (NKJV)11 For they intended evil against You; They devised a plot which they are not able to perform.12 Therefore You will make them turn their back;You will make ready Your arrows on Your string toward their faces.13
Be exalted, O Lord, in Your own strength! We will sing and praise Your power.
Our nation’s prophets have been saying that 2014 is the year of the open door. I am urging you to step through your open door with your crown of glory on your head and begin to decree and declare our nation for His glory. Take back the territory that is rightfully His with your mouth!
Our most effective weapon of warfare in this season is praising the Lord. As you praise and worship Him, speak out your greatest hopes and dreams for America and do it in the name of Jesus! You are our hope, our backbone. We need you now more than ever before.
God bless each of you as you carry out one of the greatest assignments the greatest generation has ever been given.
