Let The Fireworks Begin…
Good morning beautiful people, good morning. This morning I was thinking of so many things as we prepare for July 4th, 2022. The skies will be filled with fireworks as people begin to pull out their barbecues and celebrate.
I re-read some of my own writings from the past. Resolution, Revolution and the River seems like a good repost for today. That day in July of 2016 in Caribou, Maine the prayer of agreement changed the destiny of America. It’s a new day, as the tide has turned, and the shift has been made. God has heard our prayers. Oh, how I love the prayer of agreement.
Father, thank you that you said if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. It was done on the steps of the courthouse that day in July 2016 when this decree was read and we all came into agreement. To that we all can say, Amen.
