Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

O God, help us.

We pray in the name of Jesus Christ, your Son, help us.

For those of us inside churches, God help us to see our sin. Help us root out hypocrisy. Help us to love. And help us be true to your word no matter what it may cost.

God help us. Help our spiritual economy. As we put you first, give us a harvest of hope that we might spread that hope to those around us and that it would reach around the world. God help us.

We need your help, o God, in our politics. In the gridlock. In the weighty issues of the day because some people think one thing about an issue and others think the exact opposite. Would you help us, O God, not judge who is right or left, but what is right in your sight. Help us, O God, to seek justice and truth rather than a political platform.

You, O God have set up the ruling authorities. Help them, O God, understand the difference between truth and triviality. We are one nation under you, O God, but it feels very much like we are fragmented and divided and small minded and selfish.

O God, help us.

You said we were blessed if we were poor in spirit.

O God, help us to humble ourselves, to hunger and thirst after righteousness, to be merciful, and pure in heart. And when others insult your sons and daughters, when they hurl accusations, and persecute, help us to rejoice.

O God, help us. You who were inclusive of all—who revealed to us through your Word that there is not ONE without sin, not ONE who has fallen short of your glory, except the God-man, Jesus. O God, help us to include everyone with that message that only through him can we have reconciliation with you, only through his blood can we be saved from your judgment, which we deserve. O

God, give us your mercy instead.

And grant that we might give it to others who, like us, don’t deserve it.

O God, help our president, help our Senators and those in congress, help our mayors and judges and governors and police officers and fire fighters and all who serve us.

It is said that you give wisdom to those who ask. Help them ask you. Help them to honor you.

It is said that because we elect our leaders, we get the government we deserve.

O God, give us what we don’t deserve. Revive your people. Revive our land. And do whatever must be done for the glory of God to be revealed.

O God, forgive us for the blood on our hands, the greed in our hearts, and our vain imaginations. Forgive us for our unbelief. And show us how dependent we are on you.

O God, we pray in the mighty name of Jesus, help us.
