time for wednesday morning prayer and thoughts for today
Welcome to the prayer for the return of Jesus Christ.
This is a prayer I’ve put together where I would like to pray for anyone within the sound of my voice.
All I ask you to do, is to agree with me as I pray, and together we will seek our Heavenly Father.
Let us pray…
Heavenly Father, we gather together and come into agreement in the wonderful and powerful Name of Jesus Christ.
Where two or more are gathered there You’ll be in the midst of us and anything we agree upon as touching You will surely do.
Father in Jesus Name, there is no distance in the spirit and we thank You for the listener who desires a prayer for the return of Your Son, Jesus Christ.
Your Word says He’s coming again, they believe it, and that settles it.
Help them hold fast to Your promise that Jesus will come on the day set aside by You!
As they wait, help the listener live as if You are not returning in their lifetime.
Although they are excited for the return of Your Son, and want to see it as soon as possible, help them to live a life that is pleasing to You as they share the Gospel with people.
A life that is lived so that if Jesus returns in their lifetime they will not be ashamed of His sudden appearance.
We decree and declare that the listener is living a life that is acceptable in Your sight.
More trouble for Biden: North Korea claims successful test of 'weapon of great significance'
North Korea announced on Monday that its military had successfully tested long-range cruise missiles with the ability to strike a target more than 900 miles away.
"The 'long-range cruise missiles' were launched on Saturday and Sunday and allegedly hit a target 1,500 kilometers away, officials said on North Korea's state-run media," ABC News reported.
"The missiles flew for over two hours, according to the report," the report said.
Joseph Dempsey, a defense researcher at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, said the development of a cruise missile should be a concern, the BBC reported on Monday.
"The development of a long-range cruise missile could pose additional challenges for South Korea's missile defenses," Dempsey said.
He said that a "cruise missile doesn't have to follow a straight trajectory. Its flight plan may be programmed to avoid defenses or use terrain to reduce detection, but we still don't know exactly how the North Korean version navigates."
Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato said that unlike previous launches by North Korea, the latest missile test did not fly over Japan.]\
But if the missile can fly as far as North Korea reported, he said, "it would be a major concern for us," according to NBC News.
The missile test follows an August report by the International Atomic Energy Agency that said North Korea appears to have restarted a nuclear reactor capable of producing plutonium for nuclear weapons.
"Since early July 2021, there have been indications consistent with the operation of the 5MW(e) reactor," the IAEA report said.
"The DPRK’s nuclear activities continue to be a cause for serious concern," the report said. "Furthermore, the new indications of the operation of the 5MW(e) reactor and the Radiochemical Laboratory are deeply troubling.
"The continuation of the DPRK’s nuclear programme is a clear violation of relevant UN Security Council resolutions and is deeply regrettable."
In its annual report, the International Atomic Energy Agency said North Korea appeared to have restarted a nuclear reactor believed to have produced plutonium for the country's nuclear arsenal
Heavenly Father, I come to you today, full of anxiety and fear of what is going on around me. Lord, you know it is in my nature to want to run away and hide from my problems. But I don’t want to run away anymore. I want to face my fears head-on, and I need your help.
Lord, I desperately need your strength to move forward. I need your Spirit to lead me. I feel weak and helpless. I feel as though I have no strength to carry on. But somewhere in the back of my mind, I know that in my weakness, you are strong. Your word tells me that I can delight in hardships, persecutions, and difficulties. For in times of trouble, you are very strong indeed (2 Corinthians 12:10).
Gracious God, please help me to see things as you see them. As my situation seems to grow into a mountain of hardship, please help me see you more and more. Help me to recognize your provision and wait upon you to lead me. I know you care about me. You care about what I am going through. Thank you so much. I lean on you now, for every bit of strength to go on. For it is by your strength—the strength of your Spirit—that helps me scale every mountain in my life. Help me to keep going, even when I’d rather give up. I need you.
Father, I commit every worry to you today. Every thought that darkens my mind, every cloud that covers my heart, I commit them to you. I ask for your peace—the peace that surpasses all understanding. Right in the middle of my worst fears, Lord, I ask for your peace and rest.
Holy God, in the name of your Son, Jesus, I pray for wisdom in this situation. I ask for the wisdom only you can give, and I believe you will give it. Thank you for that promise. I believe you will give me strength to stand. I believe that you will be with me every step of the way. I believe you’ve got this. You’ve got me.
Thank you, Lord, for hearing me when I pray. I lift my hands in praise to you today and know that you are faithful. I trust You completely with my fears. I thank you for giving me strength through the storms of life. I pray these things in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
Danish Media Outlet Discovers Obama NSA Was Spying On Ally Leaders
According to new revelations from a Danish media outlet, the U.S. National Security Agency under the Barack Obama administration was using resources provided by Denmark’s intelligence agency to spy on European politicians. The investigation and subsequent news, known as the Dunhammer Report, followed details laid out in Edward Snowden’s Whistleblowing episode in which he uncovered the NSA’s abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act courts to spy on private citizens.
The new revelations show the extent to NSA surveillance wasn’t only limited to U.S. citizens as it is now clear the agency was also spying on European politicians, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Previously in 2013, Merkel made it clear that the NSA spying on her would be unacceptable.
This cooperation between the American and Danish intelligence agencies even escalated to the point where Denmark allowed the NSA to set up south of Copenhagen on the Island of Amager. In addition to Germany, elite government officials in France, Sweden and Norway were under surveillance as well. French President Emmanuel Macron responded to those reports on Monday.
“It, very clearly, is not acceptable between allies, even less so between allies and European partners,” he asserted. “I care about the relationship of confidence that unites Europeans and Americans, and we thus have to do everything in our power for our common security.”

In 2013, Obama’s State Department spokesperson, Jen Psaki, stated this matter would be alleged because of Snowden’s report, but reserved the administrations right to neither confirm nor deny every single report.
“More allegations will surface given the quantity of classified information leaked by Mr. Snowden. I want to set the precedent, or set the point I guess, from here today that we have no plans to lay out our tactics or further specifics details from here,” she announced. “We feel as you’ve heard us say a couple of times that the best place to have these conversations is with our allies, with our diplomatic partners. Those will continue and we’ll address pieces as they come.”
The most eye opening discovery of the report is the possible dishonesty of the Obama administration as the question now is whether the spying took place before or after Obama had promised to stop spying on allies. In early 2014, Obama made this promise in response to the Snowden reports.
“I’ve made clear to the intelligence community that unless there is a compelling national security purpose, we will not monitor the communications of heads of state and government of our close friends and allies,” the former President expressed. “I’ve instructed my national security team, as well as the Intelligence Community, to work with foreign counterparts, to deepen our coordination and cooperation in ways that rebuild trust going forward”
It is unclear why the administration felt the need to collect data on top ranking officials of American allies, though the latest Dunhammer Report does expand our understanding of the extent to which the spying was taking place. This additionally provides clear evidence that the Obama administration had been making secret deals with foreign nations to achieve those goals.
Borris Johnson And Idiotic Ideology Want To Keep Us In The E.U. For The Benefits Money And Benifits Of A Man Made Virus That Was Spread Though The Air BY Land Sea And Airo,Space By The Brits That Was Started By The Chinks.
Boris Johnson said he would rather see "bodies pile high" than take the country into a third lockdown, sources familiar with the conversations have told the BBC.
'Greed' and 'capitalism' helped UK's vaccines success, says PM
Boris Johnson has told a private meeting of Tory MPs that the success of the UK's Covid vaccine programme was because of "capitalism" and "greed".
But sources said the prime minister had "very insistently" withdrawn his comments straight after making them during a Zoom call with backbenchers.
The remarks were not connected to the EU row over vaccine supply, they added.
A government source said the PM was referring to the profit motive driving companies to develop new products.
The PM also reportedly praised work by large drug companies during the pandemic.
EU tussle with UK over AstraZeneca jabs escalates
PM to phone EU leaders to avoid vaccine export ban
Extra £1.6bn for Covid vaccine rollout
The prime minister's full remarks, which first appeared in the Sun newspaper, were reported to be: "The reason we have the vaccine success is because of capitalism, because of greed, my friends."
Wales Office Minister David TC Davies, who attended the meeting, said Mr Johnson "made it absolutely clear it was a joke - a reference to the film Wall Street".
He added: "Whoever leaked that needs to take a long hard look at themselves because it was very irresponsible."
The remarks came as some 28.3 million people in the UK - more than half the adult population - have had at least a first dose of either the Oxford-AstraZeneca or Pfizer vaccines.
But the latest figures show jabs being administered across the EU at less than a third of the rate achieved so far in the UK.
Over the last few days, Mr Johnson has been speaking to European leaders in an effort to dissuade them from imposing an export ban on Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine exports to the UK when they meet on Thursday.
One MP told me the prime minister's "greed" comments had been intended to poke fun at the chief whip, who was gobbling his cheese and pickle while sitting next to him during the meeting.
Believe it or not, the Conservative Party's boss of discipline, Mark Spencer, has been christened with the nickname "Big Farmer", like "Big Pharma" - the pharmaceutical companies.
And it's vehemently denied that the PM's comments were designed to stir up anything in the row with the EU.
Sources are adamant that Mr Johnson was not intending to be critical of the pharmaceutical companies in any way.
During the MPs' committee meeting, Mr Johnson praised AstraZeneca for providing vaccines in the UK at cost.
One of those who attended said they had never seen anyone withdraw a comment "so fast or so vehemently" as the prime minister's one on procurement.
Mr Johnson "realised he had messed up as soon as he had said it, and didn't mean it", the MP added.
Several sources said he had asked those present to "remove that comment from your collective memory".
It is understood the prime minister did not compare the UK's vaccination efforts with those of EU countries during his address.
In his Budget earlier this month, Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced an extra £1.65bn to help reach the target of offering a first dose to every UK adult by 31 July.
Our Politicians Have Raped Our Land For Far Too Long All To Keep Us In The E.U. For Trade Deals Our Politicians Are Useless Anyway They Take Orders From Davos
Do Not Take Orders From 'THE MAN' Anymore
In The End Times Men Will Become Lovers Of Money Power Domination
In The End Times There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good
We Are Approaching The Next Big World War.
A US Coast Guard ship fired warning shots at an Iranian boat which came too close to USA naval vessels in the Strait of Hormuz this week.
The Pentagon said 13 fast boats from Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGCN) came within 140m (459ft) of US vessels on Monday.
In response to the second incident of its kind in the region within a fortnight, the US ship fired 30 warning shots.
The former Iranian President Mahmoud filed to run for a third term in next month’s elections.
Mr Mahmoud developed Iran’s nuclear program during his tenure in office from 2005 to 2013, leading to heightened tensions with Western countries, and his reelection in 2009 triggered mass protests.
He was barred from running in 2017.
The worsening relations between the US and Iran is thought likely to have serious economic, political and security ramifications for the USA and its allies.
If the two nations were to engage in military conflict, Iran could opt to block the Strait of Hormuz, through which 30 percent of the world's oil travels.
This would result in global oil prices rising and could risk the USA's relationship with its allies.
Any outbreak of war between the USA and Iran could also see an escalation of tensions in other countries including Syria and Yemen or a rise in Iranian missile strikes targeting US troops in the Middle East.
Tensions between Iran and Israel have been frustrated for a while with low-intensity warfare raging across the Middle East as a result.
The former nation supports anti-Israel groups in Gaza, Syria and Lebanon in particular, while Israel often strikes at Iranian forces across the region.
Overall, Israel has endeavoured to create an anti-Iran coalition at a diplomatic level, while Iran has invested in cultivating ties with militias and non-state actors.
While it may be difficult to claim these nations will launch into a wider war if Iran is determined to restart its nuclear program, Israel may choose to engage in wider strikes hitting the Iranian homeland directly.
This type of assault could have wider implications as it could prove to be a threat to global oil supplies which would inevitably cause more nations to intercede.
Israel is currently in a state of crisis with its Jewish settlers fighting against Palestinian natives.
Gaza was targeted by the heaviest Israeli bombardment seen in years overnight, with militants in Gaza launching rockets in retaliation aimed at Israeli towns.
As of May 14, at least 119 Palestinians and eight Israelis have been killed since the violence began.
Countries around the globe have called on the nation and its representatives to calm the ongoing strife, but this has proven ineffective thus far.
The UN’s Middle East envoy issued a shocking warning this week claiming “we’re escalating towards a full-scale war”.
The UN official Tor Wennesland said: “Stop the fire immediately. We’re escalating towards a full-scale war.
“Leaders on all sides have to take the responsibility of de-escalation.
“The cost of war in Gaza is devastating and is being paid by ordinary people.
“The UN is working with all sides to restore calm. Stop the violence now."
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he is “deeply concerned” by the growing violence and warned both sides to “step back from the brink”.
Tensions between the US and Turkey has heightened in recent years, initially as a result of the US providing authorisation to Turkey to clear the Syrian border of US-supported Kurds.
However, immediately afterwards, the US threatened Ankara with sanctions, causing tensions to rise.
Additionally, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan suggested he has aspirations for Turkey which could involve nuclear weapons.
As a result, the state of the US-Turkey relationship has worsened, causing fear about the subsequent impact on the NATO alliance.
President Erdogan is known for being passionate about his plan which could force Washington and Ankara to the very edge and have a result on Russia who is a neighbouring nation.
Turkish forces launched airstrikes and a ground offensive against PKK fighters in northern Iraq at the end of last month.
In the past 10 years, the relationship between India and Pakistan has worsened, bringing the countries to the brink of war.
Since the partition of British India in 1947 and the subsequent creation of India and Pakistan, the two countries have been involved in a number of wars, conflicts and military stand-offs interspersed with periods of harmony and peace.
In 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attempted to reduce the autonomy of Kashmir and to change citizenship policies within the rest of India.
These steps have caused some unrest within India and highlighted the long-standing tensions between Delhi and Islamabad.
Further domestic disturbances in India and Pakistan could lead to World War 3.
While this is unlikely, it could lead to terrorist attacks internationally or in Kashmir.
Prime Minister Modi might then feel forced to bring on a more serious conflict and given China’s vicinity, and the growing relationship between Delhi and Washington could lead to more disastrous international implications.
Indian and Pakistani intelligence officials held secret talks in Dubai in January in an effort to deescalate tensions over the Kashmir region, sources claim.
The United Arab of Emirates is also reportedly helping to mediate.
Fundamental tensions at the heart of the US-North Korea relationship could result in combative action.
North Korea this week accused US leader Joe Biden of pursuing a hostile policy against it and warned a response could leave the USA in a "very grave situation".
The North Korean foreign ministry said diplomacy was a “spurious signboard” for the US to “cover up its hostile acts,” according to state media agency KCNA.
These incendiary comments were made after President Joe Biden delivered a policy speech to Congress earlier this month during which he discussed nuclear programs in North Korea and Iran saying they posed threats which must be addressed through "diplomacy and stern deterrence".
This was just one of the explosive comments directed at the US.
Pyongyang also blasted Washington for criticizing its human rights record and Seoul for failing to stop anti–North Korea leaflets from being sent across the border.
Speaking on the topic of North Korea, first-term US leader Mr Biden said he is seeking middle ground between former president Donald Trump's emphasis on personal diplomacy and former president Barack Obama's approach of conditioning engagement on North Korean concessions.
As North Korea is a nuclear power with its own complex relationship with China, it is a critical nation for US national security concerns.
The nations undertake many weapons and missile tests, small-scale military and cyber attacks with each posing a significant risk for potential escalation.
Outright threats from North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un are also a cause for concern, as he claims that North Korean weapons can now reach USA territories and even the nation's mainland.
The US-China relationship has been particularly tense in recent years.
A trade deal between the two countries would seem to alleviate some tensions but implementation remains in question.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken last week accused China of acting more aggressively abroad and more repressively at home.
He added the USA does not wish to hold China down, but would not allow the nation to undermine its rules-based international order.
Tensions have soared in recent times over trade, espionage and the pandemic.
The China-US relationship is crucial to both sides and the globe.
Beijing has repeatedly called on President Biden's administration to improve relations which deteriorated under Mr Trump.
Bilateral talks in Alaska took place between the US and China in March with the former unleashing heated attacks on China's policies regarding human rights, cyberattacks, Taiwan, and its crackdown in Xinjiang and Hong Kong.
China countered accusing the US of being unqualified to comment on these issues.
Life is truly a gift from God. God is the Creator and Sustainer of all life. God is “pro-life” and as His faithful, Bible-believing followers, so are we!
In the first book of the Bible – Genesis 1 – we read that the Spirit of God (the Holy Spirit) hovered over the face of the waters and that the earth was formless, empty and dark. (Genesis 1:2) When God miraculously spoke with His almighty Word and Power, everything immediately came into being – the light; the atmosphere; the land, water and plant life; the sun, moon and stars; the birds of the air and the fish of the seas; and finally, every land animal and the crown of His creation – human life! (See also Genesis 2.)
The prophet Jeremiah, by the inspiration of God, quotes God, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.”(Jeremiah 1:5a) And the Psalmists says, “For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139: 13-16)
God graciously creates, sustains and cares for life at every stage – pre-born, infancy, adolescence, maturity and old age. On this “Life Weekend,” as we thank Him for the gift of life which He gives to each one of us, He calls us to take up His Word of Truth in order to confront the wickedness of our city, state and nation – the sin of Abortion. As we observe “Life Weekend,” we can’t help but remember the tragedy of abortion on demand which has killed some 56 million innocent babies since the 1973 Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade. (1.4 million each year; 3500 each day; approximately 45 babies during the length of the sermon.) The horrifying atrocities of the WWII Nazi war machine pale in comparison to the murder of innocent human life at the hand of the modern-day abortion industry!
God’s word is perfectly clear; it is not ambiguous; it is not complicated; it is not hard to understand! He tells us, “Thou shalt NOT MURDER (kill).” (Deuteronomy 5:17) But like the temptation of our first parents – Adam and Eve – the sinister devil seeks to tempt us into doubt, disbelief and misunderstanding.
God calls us – as citizens of His Kingdom and as citizens of our land – to use powerful prayer; peaceful protest; and personal persuasion in order to advance the cause of life. God is calling us – you and me – to STAND; to stand for Him and against sin! We pray that God would perform a miracle today… that He would perform a miracle in the hearts and lives of all Americans, so that we would hear His Word, believe, repent, be forgiven by God and be spared from God’s divine judgment!
In the nail-marked hands of Jesus there is forgiveness for those who have been involved in the sin of Abortion and for those who have been reluctant to speak out against it and for Life. In Jesus, there is forgiveness for ALL repentant sinners!
What a joy and privilege it is to be God’s spokespersons for Life! Life is a precious gift from God and along with the Psalmist we say, “I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139: 14)
Rejoice In These Matters You Have The Book Of The Way The Truth And The Life.
Eat Work Pray Go About Your Day And Keep Encouraged With Your Christian Friends
God's Will Be Done.
He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, “My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done.”
2 Samuel 10:12
Be strong, and let us show ourselves courageous for the sake of our people and for the cities of our God; and may the Lord do what is good in His sight.”
2 Samuel 15:26
But if He should say thus, ‘I have no delight in you,’ behold, here I am, let Him do to me as seems good to Him.”
1 Peter 4:19
Therefore, those also who suffer according to the will of God shall entrust their souls to a faithful Creator in doing what is right.
But did not My words and My statutes, which I commanded My servants the prophets, overtake your fathers? Then they repented and said, ‘As the Lord of hosts purposed to do to us in accordance with our ways and our deeds, so He has dealt with us.’”’”
Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.”
always in my prayers making request, if perhaps now at last by the will of God I may succeed in coming to you.
but taking leave of them and saying, “I will return to you again if God wills,” he set sail from Ephesus.
1 Corinthians 4:19
But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, and I shall find out, not the words of those who are arrogant but their power.
Guidance, God's Promises
For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
And do not return there without watering the earth
And making it bear and sprout,
And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth;
It will not return to Me empty,
Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
“The anger of the Lord will not turn back
Until He has performed and carried out the purposes of His heart;
In the last days you will clearly understand it.
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
On The Flip Side Kim Jong Un's Heart
The Queen sends ‘good wishes’ to Kim Jong-un to mark North Korea’s national day
Timing of the royal recognition seen as extraordinary, as it arrived shortly before reports that pariah state had tested long-range missiles
Palace: Yes, the Queen Really Did Send Congrats Note to Kim Jong Un
A royal spokesman, however, has confirmed to The Daily Beast that Queen Elizabeth II did indeed send a cheery message to Kim Jong Un on the occasion of the 73rd anniversary of the founding of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
North Korea “regularly greets our queen on her birthday,” Korea expert Aidan Foster-Carter, senior research fellow at Leeds University in England, told The Daily Beast, “but I find no trace of any message from us/her to them—until now. So this is intriguing.”
The message, dated September 7, two days before North Korea’s founding day parade, was revealed Monday by Pyongyang’s Korean Central News Agency, which published it in its entirety among dozens of other messages from leaders of countries such as Algeria, the Seychelles, and Azerbaijan. The controversial King of Thailand was another well-wisher, but the heads of other major Western powers were notable by their absence.
The queen avoided any personal tribute to the Korean dictator despite hailing the anniversary of the establishment of the Kim dynasty.
Kim Yo Jong Re
“As the people of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea celebrate their National Day, I send my good wishes for the future,” she said.
A royal spokesperson confirmed the authenticity of the message to The Daily Beast, dispelling suspicions that it might have been an elaborate hoax. The palace would only say that the message had been sent to the head of state, although there is only one man to whom that could refer. Pyongyang’s KCNA confirmed it was sent to Kim Jong Un as “president of state affairs.”
“It was a message sent by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCDO) on behalf of Her Majesty to the people of North Korea on their national day,” said a spokesperson for the palace. Such messages are routinely sent in the queen’s name by and on the advice of the FCDO, she would not have crafted the message herself.
However, efforts to downplay the significance of the message will not appease critics who fear the regime is making use of the queen’s message to confer legitimacy on its autocratic system. North Korea’s nuclear aspirations were demonstrated again on Sunday with boasts of successful tests of a new long-range cruise missile.
DPRK leaders have been trying to engage with the queen for years, sending nice notes to the family and her citizens. In 2014, for instance, Kim Yong Nam, then North Korea’s titular head of state, sent birthday greetings to the queen in which he wished her and her subjects “health and happiness... well being and prosperity.”

prayer for god's will to be done
O Lord, my Heavenly Father, I praise your holy name. I pray for your will to be done in my life and in this world, for your way to rule here on earth as it does in heaven. I'm not in control, Lord, you are, even though that's often hard for me to admit and accept. ... Father, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.1
