END ICE: the
The date: September 25th. The time: 8:00 AM. The place:
Terrace Restaurant, Kauai Lagoons, Lihue. For the KIM Pastors and Leaders Prayer/Breakfast Meeting. That morning it was raining
somewhat hard. I remember getting from the parking lot to the restaurant completely soaked, luckily I had an extra T-shirt
in my briefcase. So I was a little late in arriving to the Prayer/Meeting.
I knew this was going to be an important gathering,
as for the month of September there was a heighten sense of drug awareness with newspaper articles and television shows
and media coverage of community drug awareness events/meetings across Hawaii. As I entered the conference room,
I was impressed with this image of the Knights of the Round Table.
Here on this day these few Pastors and Leaders from
various churches on the island of Kauai gathered together to pray and seek God's guidance on this State wide epidemic: ICE.
I was in awe of the intensity of the prayer time. It was evident that through the heartfelt prayers and the passion
that was in that room, something was happening.
These next scriptures came out of the prayer time:
"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will
set you free." -NIV John 8:32
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. -NIV John
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened
again by a yoke of slavery. -NIV Galatians 5:1
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble
themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their
sin and will heal their land. -NIV 2 Chronicles 7:14
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of
evil in the heavenly realms. -NIV Ephesians 6:12
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but
mighty in God for pulling down strongholds... -NKJV 2 Corinthians 10:4
Then Jesus returned in the
power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region. -NKJV Luke 4:14
These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying:
"Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans. But go rather to the lost sheep of the
house of Israel. And as you go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand." -NKJV Matthew 10:5-7
These next quotes came out of the prayer time:
Will you not revive us again... -NIV Psalm 85:6a
Pray that the Holy Spirit will cleanse and revive us to touch the
lives of our people to proclaim Jesus Christ is Lord!
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves
and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will
heal their land. -NIV 2 Chronicles 7:14
The Key: "If My people..." We pray for the church to awake, cry
out and pray!
Pray for our children's safety at schools. It's OK to ask for help.
Start preventative measures from Elementary Schools. Teach the basic things of life. Be sensitive and pray without ceasing.
Obedience is better than sacrifice! Disobedience leads to rebellion,
rebellion is as the spirit of witchcraft, witchcraft is as the spirit of pharmakea, witchcraft is manipulation and control.
Pray for obedience, willing to submit to God and His word.
Get Reality from Jesus, NOT drugs!
Pray for the Unity of Kauai's church leaders
Seek God's face. Humility. Pray. Repeat.
He whom the Son set FREE is FREE indeed!
