  Are we desperate enough to cry out to the Lord, take off the masks, and be real and present our true state of heart. How much do we really want to carry the burden of the Lord and get rid of the hardness of heart? I wrote this a couple years ago. 

Pray for me for I usually just delete anything that has anything to do with Israel and what is going on over there. I feel so hard and uncaring and I need so much to have a church that has a strong spirit of intercession and love for Israel. We as a people of God should be gathering and crying out for peace and mercy for Israel and I don't see it. Oh please Lord come upon your people and stir their hearts especially the pastors who are to lead the flock into truth. Stir the hearts of your pastors and leaders to what is important. Prayer and fasting and worship!!!! 

Lord, if you don't do something in my heart! I feel like I am dying! Stir up the spirit of love and intercession for your holy people, Israel. Please Lord do something Lord before it is too late. I cry out to you, Lord! Please Lord. Deliver us of anti semitism and Babylon Lord!!!! Gather us together to press in for what is important and that is what is on Your heart Lord!!!! I am honest with you and before your people. I cry out to you, Lord, change me. Give me a heart of compassion and intercession and love for your people. 

LORD!!!!!! Bombs are flying, people are crying, fearful and lost without you. We should be down on our knees as a church together crying out. Break the hardness of our hearts, Lord. Stir us, wake us, shake us, do what it takes to get us to be a church of prayer. Deliver us of all religion and pride, Lord. Take off our masks and cause us to cry out for repentance and for your help in our deprived state. We are like lost sheep without a pastor to lead us to the waters of truth. Lord, you know what we need to bring us to where we need to be. I cry out for it. In Your holy name I pray!!!

 Cry of Complacency

You have cried out to stir My people to pray. Do you think that they will hear you? They will not hear Me. You are one voice crying in the sea of many to know My heart. Even My prophets will not strip themselves of  their own self made events to place upon this sack cloth for another.  Israel, people born in My Spirit, do you love your brother? Have you beheld with closed eyes as war has come to slaughter your mother  Jerusalem, and to ravish your sister Israel? Indifference is birthed by  your complacency and now the pains of travail shall come.
 Will you 
continue to gaze at the speck far in the distance, while refusing to see that which is before your own face? Are you My servant? Are you My friend?  Where is the disciple of this hour? Where are the intercessors who feel the throbbing of my heart? Shall I find another who will weep  for the cause of their GOD? My eyes do search and seek those who will abandon their own  selves to stand in the gap and pray. Where are the girded standers? Where  are the eyes that weep for My people, Israel? You stare blankly into the  distant horizon not realizing that your back doors are now open to the devourer.

Gird yourselves watchmen. WATCH! SEE! PRAY!


  Bring forth the sackcloth intercessors and yield your tears for My people, Israel.  I say plainly, the horizon is but a speck of illusion for the complacent.  Look! See! Open your eyes and your heart towards My Israel and you will find  the heart of your GOD.

 Acts 20 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
