Normally this time of year, I find myself thinking about Thanksgiving dinner and what Christmas presents we want to make or give to our loved ones. This year I am just thinking about the peace we seem to have right now. I know our country is in turmoil over everything it seems, but I look around our county and I am starting to see some hope and that we are starting to find our way in this crazy year. 20/20 has always been the standard for perfectly clear vision. Earlier this year I would have told you that 2020 was the year of chaos and change, but now I see God bringing people and churches together that haven’t done things together in a long time. I see schools working hard to do the best thing they can for their students. Yes, it is hard for families with children in school, and some families have had to make major changes, but I still see more peace in this county than in the surrounding areas. Even in nature I see a reset. Our fields are growing with new plants that we haven’t seen before, or not for a long time, and for the first time in years September is cool. A prayer that is be-coming very common is:

2 Chronicles 7:14 if my people who are called by my name 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.

It doesn’t say that He will heal it completely in the matter of a second, although He could. It says that He will heal it. The Lord as opened my eyes to see that he is trying to heal us and our land. We have a long way to go to be back in the Lord’s will as a country, but here is a beginning. It is up to us to keep praying to see it through.There is so much in our world right now that we do not understand. Every night if you watch the news you are blasted with the negative things that are going on in our country. Let's rise above and continue to pray. Each and every one of us have the power to pray healing into our land. I used to think I wasn’t a prayer warrior. I don’t spend hours a day praying and honestly, sometimes I feel like that they don’t even make it to Heaven, but that is the enemy talking. God hears each and every one of our prayers. Revelation 5:8 and 8:4 reference the prayers of the saints being incense in the throne room of the Lord. The biblical definition of saint is believer. When did we as a culture decide that you had to be this mighty prayer warrior to be heard?

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

As believers, we are to come boldly to the throne. It doesn’t give any qualifications of that honor other than a believer. I think it is time that we do just that. Let’s go boldly to the throne and praise the Lord for this reset. Let’s show Him we are grateful for all He has done for us even in this chaos and lets pray that the peace we are beginning to feel in LeFlore county would spread.
