”When the country is in chaos, everybody has a plan to fix it—But it takes a leader of real understanding to straighten things out.”  [Proverbs 28:2 The Message]

In prayer I’m often reminded of the patriot missile and Desert Storm.  The precision of those weapons and the immediate viewing of the targets destruction remain indelibly seared into my mind.  With it the Holy Spirit taught me a lesson about how the power and precision of the weapons of our warfare.  Paul said, our weapons in prayer ”…are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God…”  [2 Corinthians 10:4]

To be strategic in our prayers requires we be specific in the words we use and requests we make.  This morning our word is a great weapon for praying for leaders everywhere and especially in this nation.  If you don’t understand a problem then coming up with a solution is hit and miss at best and making a decision without understanding is a prerequisite for disaster.

In this season of chaos, the economic collapse can be seen from a perspective of darkness, doom and gloom or from God’s perspective.  Those that know their God know He is still in control, He understands and He has a plan.   We have this opening to be those who intercede by pulling down the strongholds of greed and usury—use the weapons of your warfare to make a difference.  Then pray that all leaders everywhere go into the sanctuary as David did and gain understanding,” When I tried to understand all this it was oppressive to me till I entered the sanctuary of God;’ then I understood…”  [Psalm 73:16-17]

God is neither mocked nor shaken and man is badly mistaken when his heart is greedy exploiting the needy and thinking all’s well with the nation.  God has a plan and we’re held in His hand, be anxious or worry for nothing—God’s will shall be done by the Cross He has won—and evil shall be overtaken.
