ABOUT the FATHER’S BUSINESS, (Pray and Occupy)

Battle weary British soldiers huddled  beneath a fiery, smoke-filled sky, fearful that the German advance would not cause their annihilation. The British army was led by  General Viscount Gort.  The Germans relentlessly pushed forward, trapping the men between them and the English Channel. The  French and Belgian troops had joined with them as they waited at the small port of Dunkirk France.

Vice admiral, Bertram Ramsay was planning a strategy to  evacuate the troops.  There were over two hundred thousand  British soldiers and he deduced that perhaps only twenty or thirty thousand had a chance to be rescued. The power of prayer kicked in with the king and queen kneeling  at Westminster Alley. The archbishop of Canter bury, the prime minister and all of  Parliament followed suit and went to their knees in prayer!

Ramsay made a public call for help, asking anyone at all who was able to rescue the troops with any kind of boat to do so.

For reasons still not known, on May 24, 1940 Hitler  ordered his ranks to retreat from pursuing the retreating allied force. Thus entered a parenthetical pause beginning the opening scene of one of the most miraculous  events in recorded history!

Miraculously,  private yachts, fishing  and boy scout boats, barge operators and tugboat captains responded! Men who were being rescued also prayed and by the prayers of a nation a miracle was unfolded each hour. Nine days later, 338,226 people had been rescued! Besides the whole nation of England praying,  the whole world  united in prayer.  President Franklin Roosevelt issued a proclamation for prayer and all responded.


I’ve never been interested in wars, stories of battles or the military, but as a servant and soldier of the most high God throughout my thirty years,  I’ve taken a great interest in the successful strategies of the great biblical warriors and generals of the Bible, such as Joshua, King David and Gideon.  The strategies of earthly,  secular battles are no different from the unseen wars in heaven where God’s angels duke it out with demons.

“When soldiers call upon God…He answers. When nations call upon God….History records.”

I rejoiced upon reading  the astounding account of the evacuation at Dunkirk, France,  in Chapter 17 of Peggy Ruth Joyce’s  powerful book, Psalm 91.  I’m reminded  of the faithfulness of God, who when He occupies our faith-filled thoughts, he will help us to recover and occupy the areas the enemy has conquered. This account of at Dunkirk, France and the its supernatural consequences  prove to me that God who answered all the unified prayers of these involved is still the same God today.

Today is National Day of Prayer. During my morning devotion and communion time with Abba, I started weeping and praying for America. Last night, I tuned into the Jim Bakker show. Rabbi Jonathan Cahn talked bout his book, “The Harbinger” a national best-seller and prophetic warning to America. He told us that God was very angry with America for the slaughtering of the unborn. Pastor Bakker’s wife Lori, was overseeing the construction of Lor’i’s house, a home for pregnant mothers who choose to carry their babies to term. A small minority of protestors are trying to impede this precious ministry, showing us that satan does not want life, but death.

Loris says, in her blog,

” Jim and I are determined to build Lori’s House, but we have been              delayed by a small vocal minority.  Isn’t that the way this thing (abortion) got started in the first place?  When the majority of people let the vocal minority rule in this country, we had things like abortion legalized, prayer taken out of schools, and the Ten Commandments removed from public buildings instituted.  If good people, God’s people, don’t stand up and do something,evil will prevail.”


Before I shut out my lights to retire, my last thoughts were about satan’s insidious cancer of sin and murder that  prevails our once  Godly and blessed nation.  Our leaders are calling evil, good and good, evil.  One, small woman, named Madeline Murray O’ Hare had such audacity that she opposed everything Christian and set forth on her demonic crusade to get prayer banned from schools! I’m astounded at her tenacity and focus to get her job done! One woman!  We are a body of… how many Spirit-filled Christians? Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer services and crusades boast packed stadiums! With that many people, why are babies still being butchered and our Christian values being reneged?

America continued on her downward spiral with the landmark decision Roe Vs Wade by the United States Supreme Court on the issue of abortion, Pandora’s box of infectious sin has taken its course.

America languishes in the same place as those stranded thousands of soldiers under the threat of ambush.  Some of us are sleepy and dull. Some of us are too concerned about our worldly distractions to take time to pray or to even check whats going on in our land. Some of us haven’t voted in years. ‘Some of us have no idea what bills have been passed regarding the  taking of our Christian liberties and some of us don’t even care!

So…what are we going to do about it? We had better be about the father’s business. defending the rights of the orphans, widows and defenseless: the unborn.  Time is short.  God gave us a warning on 9/11. Let’s change direction…fast!

2 Chronicles 7:14

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.


Few things endear us more than watching little children playing in a playground. Their innocence makes us want to go back to childhood when things were simple and full of curiosity and wonder. Thank God for little children for they give us hope and make us yearn to love.

Children are a gift from God and He has also given me a gift of understanding His divine purpose for the continuation of the human race through them.  When God created Adam and Eve, he marveled at His craftsmanship of the male and female being in unity as two separate persons but having a unified spirit.  Enter sin and the perfect design of family turned unto the beginning of an ugly,  violent and perpetual state of life…war.

Adam and Eves bore two sons, one of which murdered his brother out of jealousy.  From the surviving son, came a heritage which brought forth anarchy, disobedience, sibling rivalry and  fighting.

Our world today is almost totally  contaminated because of the first sin.  I grieve as I read the daily headlines blaring all kinds of atrocities, but few things trouble me more than the aftereffects of war.  The casualties and devastation can only be considered senseless and heart-wrenching. For the survivors, outward wounds may looked healed but the emotional and spiritual trauma often leave the victims broken beyond repair.

I trace my  concern about war all the way back to when I was a schoolgirl watching a film about the Bombing of Hiroshima.  Many years later as an adult, I finally realized the horrendous implications of war after watching the Auschwitz/the Nazis documnetary and “Schindler’s List.”  opened up my eyes to this devastating reality of life..

Today I’m totally enlightened and pray that I can somehow make a difference in my world and especially to show others that violence, death and war are never solutions for the healing and recovery of a nation or people. I will forever be an advocate of life and healing.

How can a lover of peace and humanity not weep to the depths of her souls after seeing images of  heaps of bodies being bull-dozed into massive pits? Surely the hearts of the Nazi soldiers who casually separated whole families forever at train stations had no hearts or consciences.  Worse yet, seeing tiny children crying and reaching out for their mothers who were being sent to the gas  chambers. Most of the concentration camp victims were youthful, healthy and had established careers and occupations.  Sadly, the disabled, sick and fragile elderly were immediately shot. I was not myself for many days after seeing the footage of the Nazi Documentary and knew I had to share my feelings a about the diabolical genocide of the Jewish people and those who resisted the  Third Reich.

I ponder the senseless ignorance of the Nazi soldiers who treated these valuable  human beings created by God with such barbaric indifference and  irreverence.  When God is shut out of the heart, the ability to sense pain in others or feel compassion at their suffering is void. One cannot understand not nor respect the worth of the human anatomy and it’s workings. Most shocking to me was  Doctor Mendela’s cruelty as he practiced the most barbaric experiments on the little children. Imagine a physician who has totally abandoned his loyalty to the Hippocratic oath,  collecting living children and causing them such suffering through experimentation. Such things are too much to bear or even understand.

I happened upon an amazing book while scouring the piles at the local flea market and came upon, “The Incredible Machine”  My eyes couldn’t believe  the magnified photographs of the circulatory system, the brain, the heart valves and the embryo in the womb! My eyes misted as I beheld the wondrous creation of the human body!The pictures of the tiny unborn baby in the womb were the most amazing.

Last week, EWTN network ran a documentary about abortion. I took great interest as I scanned the channel guide of my TV.  The two hour program consisted of mostly live interviews from clinic personnel, abortion doctors as well as the mothers who shared their horror stories about their abortion experience. Not one gave a good word and all suffered from severe emotional and physical trauma. So why is society still treating  the murder of unborn children as trivial!

I have seen live footage of precious unborn babies in the the third trimester about to be sucked out by a powerful vacuum. Tiny babies die  agonizing deaths by having their limbs ripped off. during the procedure.  Animal lovers couldn’t imagine doing such barbarism to an animal or their pet and animal rights advocates bring their battles to court for the protection of endangered birds and fish!

We need to call this atrocity what it is…a bloody war with one side being unarmed, defenseless and  and voiceless and the other, the cruel aggressor! victims. It;s time to wake up and open our eyes and hearts to what is right and true. It is time to think for ourselves and not by the propaganda of self-centeredness and convenience.

Look what has happened to our so-called advanced society? God did not ordain war, neither did He sanction it. War is the consequence of unbridled coveting, disobedience, greed and hatred.  Amazing that in 2011, embryos still have no rights!

Thank God for the women, (and men) who are admitting the true crime that abortion really is. There can be no denying that abortion is murdering in the cruelest sense.  We must reveal the hidden agenda, monetary greed as the perpetuating machine that runs this barbaric industry. not through the violence of bombing abortion clinics, but by compassionate education and giving mothers an option of life for their precious babies. That is the solution. The church must stand up and educate young men so that they learn to take responsibility for their actions.


When Mother Teresa addressed the supreme court, she spoke powerful words,

“America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe vs. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father’s role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts–a child–as a competitor, an intrusion and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the dependent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters. And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners.

“Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government,” she said. “They are every human being’s entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or sovereign. The Constitutional Court of the Federal Republic of Germany recently ruled: ‘The unborn child is entitled to its right to life independently of its acceptance by its mother; this is an elementary and inalienable right which emanates from the dignity of the human being.’

“Americans may feel justly proud that Germany in 1993 was able to recognize the sanctity of human life. You must weep that your own government, at present, seems blind to this truth.”

I hope to convince you about the sanctity of life and helping you to understand the  miraculous craftsmanship of this incredible machine. I urge you to study an anatomy book and see the make-up of the various systems

The Psalmist of the Bible was so enthralled by the way his body worked that he  wrote, ” I Praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”  Psalm 139:14. He went on to say how amazed he was that God himself was so intimately acquainted with all his ways, his actions and even before he spoke a word!

After you ponder this wonder, you may suddenly be perturbed and disturbed about nightmare mystery of rampant, casual murder.

How can we stop murdering and warring?  Sin is the culprit,  the killing machine of the human race. It is what perpetuates murder, cruelty and uncontrolled rage and wishes to lash out at anyone in it’s way. Satan is the author of death for his only purpose is to kill, steal and destroy all that God created. Killing begins at the loss of respect and reverence.

Parents must start at a young age to teach children to reverence life…all life. Teachers must teach their students to reverence each person as invaluable. Education about reverence for life has diminished since prayer was taken out of school and began a downward spiral for this nation. Even Hollywood has cheapened to quality and destiny of men and women by degrading the  sex act, marriage and relationship.

We must go back to  pure roots of honoring parents, and of nurturing children with tough love. We need to get to the basics of friends and neighbors all taking responsibility for the raising of children and making them productive and confident memebers of siciety. Unless we come to this reality of our error, we will be doomed.

We must acknowledge the fact that both good and evil seek to influence. May we have ears and a heart to hear, receive and perpetuate good so that all can thrive.
