Yesterday I prayed that God would help me to know the direction he has for me during this Deaf ministry. I feel so incapable and that I am not a strong leader. Lord, please send a leader who is Deaf, and help the Bible study meet more than once a month. We had decided to meet every other week, but we are floundering because when the study is cancelled one week, then we don’t meet for a month. This week the study is about all the meanings of your name: What does the word “Lord” mean? Please Lord use your name to impact peoples’ lives! Also today is the election between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. I much prefer Mitt Romney over Obama (who will take us down a much slippier slope into socialism where we have no choices and the government will have too much power over our every day lives.) The National Health Care Bill alone will cause us to be required to pay for abortion, eliminating the rights of unborn children even further than they are eliminated right now. As well, all employers and citizens, regardless of their view points, will have to pay for this health care bill. It is just a plain bad law. I ran across a prayer today that touched my heart. I feel that I am such a weak leader but this prayer helped me to know that I am right where God wants me. Lord, the Bible Study tomorrow is all yours. Please run it for me because I cannot:

Desperate Cry Out for America! – Day Five
Warriors of the Prayer Team,
Did you know Moses didn’t receive his Divine calling to deliver the people of Israel from Egyptian bondage until eight decades into his life? By then, Moses had a grasp of exactly who he was in relation to Almighty God. Dwight L. Moody put it this way: “Moses spent his first forty years thinking he was somebody. He spent his second forty years learning he was a nobody. He spent his third forty years discovering what God can do with a nobody.”
The Lord used the “nobody” Moses in amazing ways. And one of the things Moses did quite often in those last forty years was pray. Earlier in our “Desperate Cry Out for America!” series of e-mails, I used Exodus 34:9 – “Please let the Lord go in the midst of us, for it is a stiff-necked people, and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for your inheritance.” Moses prayed that after Israel’s shameful folly of worshipping the golden calf at Mt. Sinai. The Israelites were transformed as Moses faithfully and determinedly interceded to God on their behalf, asking for forgiveness and restoration.
As a member of the nation’s largest Prayer Team, you know the power of intercessory prayer to change a nation as God responds to your “nobody” prayers offered humbly yet desperately. Today, one day before perhaps the most pivotal Election Day in recent history, let’s pray as the Lord Jesus Himself taught us. Join me once more…
Almighty God in Heaven, holy is Your name. We pray that You will give America another chance and for Your kingdom to come and for Your will to be done on Earth – in America – as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our basic needs as we obediently pray to You, and let Your forgiveness reign in our lives as well as in the lives of America’s present and future leaders. We await and trust in Your deliverance, and thank you for Your mercy. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
