Abortion in England

January 8, 2013

In 2011, for women resident in England and Wales, the total number of abortions was 189,931. Ninety-six percent of abortions were funded by the National Healthh Service. At least one third of British women will have had an abortion by the time they reach the age of 45 years.

Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! They trusted in him and defied the king’s command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God. Daniel 3:28

O Lord our God, Holy One of Israel, our Savior,
You are the creator of heaven and earth and all that is therein. We do not fear. You have formed us and redeemed us and called us by name. You rescue Your children. We are Yours.
You formed the unborn children in England and Wales who were aborted. As they passed through the waters of the womb, You were with them. As they passed through the rivers of blood, You were there. As they walked through the fires of Molech, they were not burned. You created them, You formed them, and You saved them. We praise Your holy name.
Are these children now gathered around Your throne? Are they praying for their mothers and fathers and grandparents? Are they praying for the Church of England? Are they praying for those who have protested this program of death?
If so, Lord, hear the sound of their prayers. Release the sound of their prayers and ours over England and Wales.
Have mercy upon the Church of England and the Anglican Commmunion. May the voices of the Anglican Communion join with theirs and say, “To the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever.” Amen. Amen. Amen.
Isaiah 43:1-3, Jude 25

From our pagan roots to the present–death

January 8, 2013

O Jesus Christ of Nazareth,
We have crucified You, and God has raised You from the dead. Salvation is found through You alone. In all the world and through all of time, there is no one else whom God has given who can save us.
In times far past and present, spirits of death, war, the otherworld, and phantoms have been worshipped in Britain. They can hold influence even in ignorance of their existence. Without the power of God a curse will remain upon this nation and church, causing pain and sorrow unto future generations. Therefore, in obedience to God’s word, we confess that our ancestors in the United Kingdom and the Anglican Communion, and we Anglicans today, have listened to Satan and followed his ways.
We confess that the Anglican Consultative Council accepted a large sum of money from a pro-choice organization, the Satcher Institute, for the continuing indaba process. Please forgive us this unholy indoctrination.
We claim Your name against these and all other spirits of death: Morrigan, Badhbh, Arawn, Pluto, Cerberus, Freya, Hel, the spirit of murder, the spirit of war, the spirit of abortion, the spirit of human sacrifice, and the spirit of animal sacrifice.
You taught us that not only does violence kill, but words kill as well. We confess our personal sins of physical and verbal violence. (Pause.)
Jesus, You are the Lord of Life. You have come that we may have life and have it in abundance. Bless Great Britain, the House of Windsor, the Church of England, the Anglican Communion, and Archbbishop of Canterbury-elect Justin Welby with Your life, Your abundance, and Your renewal. Amen.
Acts 4:10-12

2 Chronicles 20:12-22, 2 Chronicles 7:14

January 8, 2013

O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.” (2 Chronicles 20:12)
      Holy Father, there are so many forces of wickedness which are attacking your church and this diocese. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you.

Now all Judah, with their little ones, their wives, and their children, stood before the LORD. (2 Chronicles 20:13)
      Holy Spirit, please help us come before you as families and pray according to your mind.

Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, in the midst of the assembly. (2 Chronicles 20:14)
      Jesus, let your Holy Spirit come upon men and women who will speak your word to us.

And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the LORD to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. (2 Chronicles 20:15)
      Father, please help us recognize what is really true, that the battle is yours, not ours.

Tomorrow go down against them. They will surely come up by the Ascent of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the brook before the Wilderness of Jeruel. You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the LORD is with you.” (2 Chronicles 20:16-17)
      Holy Spirit, help us stand still and see the salvation that Jesus will bring to pass for us.

And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem bowed before the LORD, worshiping the LORD. Then the Levites of the children of the Kohathites and of the children of the Korahites stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with voices loud and high. So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” (2 Chronicles 20:18-20)
      LORD God, help us to believe you and put our whole trust in you.

And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the LORD, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: “Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.” (2 Chronicles 20:21)
      Father, help us to go forth praising you. Let every choir and music group and musician in the diocese lead your people with praise and worship.

Now when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. (2 Chronicles 20:22)
      Holy Spirit, please help us daily sing and make melody in our hearts to praise Jesus so that the enemy will be defeated.

“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 I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14
      Holy God, help us to humble ourselves and pray and seek your face and turn from our wicked ways. Hear our cry from heaven and forgive our sin and heal our land. Thank you.

      Notes from the Front Line

***** Prayer Table Report ST. ANN’S OF AMSTERDAM (Monday, January 7, 10-11 a.m. in front of our church on Division Street. Quite cold today (28 at start) but sunny. A little smaller in terms of numbers today, but … that is not the aim of the prayer table to rack up big numbers. Transforming lives and being “there” for people seeking Jesus in the aim. Deacon Alan Hart presiding at His table today.)

t– Indicates received wooden cross made by Dennis Adams of North Carolina. (Did not anoint anyone with Holy Oil today.)

DAVID — A regular at the table (proud Navy veteran of Viet Nam), David sought prayer this time for continued faith and strength in his lay ministry to other veterans. He also gave me a medallion made in Yugoslavia of Mary and the infant Jesus and told me to give it to someone who can really use it. (I know just the person — an older woman named JEANNETTE at Ellis Hospital who is struggling with start of dementia, is scared, etc. I will give it to her Wednesday after the Protestant service we do there.)

t–CHAD — This man and his wife were driving by and noticed the table, rolled down the window and asked how much we were charging for the warm winter clothing (hats, gloves, socks) we give out. When I told them it was free — as well as the crosses and the prayers — they drove around the block and came to the table! They received prayer for provision, protection and strength. They were so surprised that a church would “care” for them. Of course we care, because He cares!

MAILMAN — declined prayer; said maybe next time.

t,t,t — MAN, WIFE, YOUNG DAUGHTER (Did not give names) — This young family, too, was astonished that free clothing is being handed out, that we care! (Note: My friends, the people are SO appreciative of winter clothing that they could otherwise not afford or obtain. THANK YOU all you brothers and sisters out there who are praying for the table and supporting with financial contributions all the prayer tables in the Diocese who reach out to the poor in this way!)

REBECCA — Asked for prayer for her nephew, 8-month-old MICHAEL. He’s OK, but Rebecca is babysitting him for two days while her sister (Mike’s Mom) is in the hospital. God knows the details.

ETHEL — WOnderful 80-ish woman who always comes to the table and thanks us for “being out there.” She requested prayer this time because she fell walking down the hill a few days ago (many of the streets and sidewalks in Amsterdam have been neglected!) and got bruised up. We prayed for quick and complete healing for Ethel and protection from future falls.

My friend, If you have an issue with your physician, medication or medical protocols perhaps this will help you. Personally I believe in “Prayer and Prozac!” I believe God has given us gifts that are directly from him! We NEVER tell people not to pay attention to their doctor or pharmacist.

If you say grace over your food, try saying grace over your medications. That they will “hit the target” and “have no side effects.” Pay particular attention to verses 1, 8, 13 and 14. Verse 15 confirms the words of Jesus to go and sin no more. The correlation of sin and “some” sicknesses.

SIRACH 38:1-15

[1] Honor the physician with the honor due him, according to your need of him, for the Lord created him;
[2] for healing comes from the Most High, and he will receive a gift from the king.
[3] The skill of the physician lifts up his head, and in the presence of great men he is admired.
[4] The Lord created medicines from the earth, and a sensible man will not despise them.
[5] Was not water made sweet with a tree in order that his power might be known?
[6] And he gave skill to men that he might be glorified in his marvelous works.
[7] By them he heals and takes away pain;
[8] the pharmacist makes of them a compound. His works will never be finished; and from him health is upon the face of the earth.
[9] My son, when you are sick do not be negligent, but pray to the Lord, and he will heal you.
[10] Give up your faults and direct your hands aright, and cleanse your heart from all sin.
[11] Offer a sweet-smelling sacrifice, and a memorial portion of fine flour, and pour oil on your offering, as much as you can afford.
[12] And give the physician his place, for the Lord created him; let him not leave you, for there is need of him.
[13] There is a time when success lies in the hands of physicians,
[14] for they too will pray to the Lord that he should grant them success in diagnosis and in healing, for the sake of preserving life.
[15] He who sins before his Maker, may he fall into the care of a physician.
