As the holiday season approaches, the leadership of "Save America Gathering," is asking the prayer-warriors who are continuing the "555-day-long prayer event to "Trust in the Lord," as they pray.
"Trust in The Lord," said Robert Berry, frequent spokesperson for the prayer initiative, which takes its theme from the 555-foot height of the Washington Monument. "There must be a firm foundation of hope, trust, and faith, underneath the prayer-monument that is being constructed for Almighty God. Even in the face of the obvious and dedicated resistance and attacks of the enemy, Satan, we have to have to courage to say "Go ahead! Prance, Satan…your time is coming! So, I'll just keep on working for The Lord." Well, then a brother or sister is able to thwart a lot of Satan's attacks."
Berry went on, discussing the 2013 holiday season. "Now, we are entering into a season dedicated to celebration of the birth of the Saviour, Jesus. However, our culture is a culture of self-worth, and we have corrupted the commemoration of Jesus' birth into a time of rampant greed, selfishness, jealousy, gluttony, and wastefulness. Many families, everywhere, will miss an opportunity to bask in the true blessing of Christmas. They will miss it because they were so busy cleaning house to impress aunt somebody; or, looking for that toy that everyone is out of; or, pouting over not getting exactly what we wanted, or, wondering if the dinner is just right. Or, maybe, working themselves up for the expected confrontation because they don't like their brother, their uncle, their in-laws, outlaws, bylaws, or, Federal laws. We have lost our way. There is not the requisite amount of Christ in our 21st century Christmas, in the United States of America. For, having received the gift of a Saviour, from our Heavenly Father, God, Almighty, we give to others, in reflection of God's work. We do not receive, because we already received our gift. Therefore, any gift received is to be treasures, as the bounty and blessing God brings forth out of loving fellowship within the hearts of men. Because, God loves us so much, He gave us His Only Begotten Son, Jesus. My very first calling, as a little child, was to tell local merchants, on the main street of my home town, they shouldn't replace Christmas with X-mas. I wanted a law passed! Well, at that time, I got a civics lesson; but, my heart is still in the same place."
Berry finished his address with this: "Therefore, we at "Save America Gathering" ask all prayer warriors not to despair, but to trust in The Lord, for He is able. Happy Thanksgiving!"
"555 Days of Prayer to Save America" is slated to end on September 11, 2014, with "The Great Wave Offering," which is being planned, now. The 555-day-long event is now at day 267.
