Dear Sisters and Brothers in Jesus the Christ, 

And Daniel who endeavored to walk in keeping with the inward witness – the Holy Spirit, Who during the former rain was only sent to the Prophets before this latter rain in which we, having been called out from the kingdom of darkness and into God’s Kingdom of Light, are to serve as witnesses of the grace and compassionate love of YHWH (with inserted vowels YAHWEH transliterated JEHOVAH commonly interpreted the LORD). This Daniel, even before the LORD God’s seed was named YESHUA/JESUS and born to BE the Mediator between the LORD God and all mankind – the faithful witness, Whose perfect obedience to the will of God on behalf of all mankind would redeem and re-create and reconcile and re-align unto the LORD God by His own spotless blood, all who believe and confess Him as Savior and Lord. This Daniel prayed to the LORD God for himself and the nation:  

Oh, Lord, the great and dreadful God, who keeps covenant and loving kindness with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned, and have dealt perversely, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even turning aside from your precepts and from your ordinances. We haven’t listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.

Lord, righteousness belongs to you, but to us confusion of face, as it is today; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to all Israel, who are near, and who are far off, through all the countries where you have driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against you. Lord, to us belongs confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against you. To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgiveness; for we have rebelled against him. We haven’t obeyed Yahweh our God’s voice, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets. Yes, all Israel have transgressed your law, turning aside, that they should not obey your voice.

Therefore the curse and the oath written in the law of Moses the servant of God has been poured out on us; for we have sinned against him. He has confirmed his words, which he spoke against us, and against our judges who judged us, by bringing on us a great evil; for under the whole sky, such has not been done as has been done to Jerusalem. As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil has come on us. Yet we have not entreated the favor of Yahweh our God, that we should turn from our iniquities and have discernment in your truth. Therefore Yahweh has watched over the evil, and brought it on us; for Yahweh our God is righteous in all his works which he does, and we have not obeyed his voice.

Now, Lord our God, who has brought your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and have gotten yourself renown, as it is today; we have sinned. We have done wickedly. Lord, according to all your righteousness, please let your anger and your wrath be turned away from your city Jerusalem, your holy mountain; because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and your people have become a reproach to all who are around us.

Now therefore, our God, listen to the prayer of your servant, and to his petitions, and cause your face to shine on your sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord’s sake. My God, turn your ear, and hear. Open your eyes, and see our desolations, and the city which is called by your name; for we do not present our petitions before you for our righteousness, but for your great mercies’ sake. Lord, hear. Lord, forgive. Lord, listen and do. Don’t defer, for your own sake, my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.Daniel 9:1-19 (WEB)

Now (this day), the Name of the Sovereign Lord God Almighty is in the very rubric of these United States of America; in its Constitution in order to avoid specific problems.1  For the Word of God relays the fact that though we have free-will to choose between life/blessings and death/curses, it is the LORD God’s utmost desire that we choose the quality of life bestowed through Him (refer to Deuteronomy 30:11-20). For the LORD God is neither the author of poverty, sickness, or eternal death. Therefore, the LORD God sent His seed to redeem us from every life-debilitating aspect of the thief that only comes to steal and kill and destroy (refer to John 10:10) through the redemptive work of Christ Jesus – His only begotten Son by Whose finished work those “in Christ” also were rendered sons & daughters of ELOHIM. More specifically, The Blessing of Abraham (all material blessings) and the fullness thereof (all spiritual blessings, authority) through the redemptive work of Christ Jesus. Yet, even if the rubric of another country isn’t, we pray as the Apostle Paul wrote: 

 I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be offered on behalf of all men, For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way.  For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior, Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and perceive and know precisely the [divine] Truth. For there [is only] one God, and [only] one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, Who gave Himself as a ransom for all [people, a fact that was] attested to at the right and proper time.1 Timothy 2:1-6 (AMPC)

The Word of God made flesh – the Living Word never said that we are to only pray for those who we like or who agree with us in word and deed (refer to Matthew 5:44,46), which doesn’t render a doormat. For we are not called out of the dominion of darkness to be yoked with any form of ungodly behavior whether such be from inside or outside of the Family of God. To recognize the difference between the good fruit of “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control” (refer to Galatians 5:22-23) isn’t the same as judging. The Truth is that GOD is LOVE and the ability to recognize evidence of the characteristics of the LOVE Who is GOD involves, yea requires, adherence to the inward witness through the present-day Ministry of the Holy Spirit – the Living Water – the Spirit of Truth, our Comforter and Counselor and Teacher, He reminds us of all things JESUS (refer to John 14:16-26). For upon the Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus the Christ seated at the right hand of God the Father, the Ministry of the Holy Spirit was returned to earth for the benefit of all humankind utilizing their own God-given free-will to “. . . seek first the Kingdom of God Matthew 6:33. The Holy Spirit is not an “it”; He is the Spirit of God within those reconciled with the LORD God by the blood of Jesus; He is the Anointing upon those rendered sons & daughters of God by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus; He makes manifest the outpouring gifted to heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ Jesus (refer to 1 Peter 1:4; Romans 8:17; 2Co 9:8,10-11; Revelation 5:12); He is The Teacher on earth. All to the glory and honor and praise of Abba Father, with thanksgiving in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
