If America is to overcome its certain demise, as declared through the discussion posted, 14 February 2021, “acquittal what it means.”
Spirituality through prayer, and action, from its citizens is an absolute. Absent any semblance of modern day Christendom.
With a strict adherence as advocated from within our Holy Writ. Indeed, as issued by Divine Providence, and as mysterious to human intelligence, as was His creation of all that is, as well, as all that is to come.
It’s a prayer offered by the Apostle Paul, God’s ordained orator for this particular age, the age of grace. Commenced by Jesus Christ, for an unknown duration, but clearly announced another age will follow. All of which, if known by modern society is ridiculed. So those few of us who know better, for the sake of America, we had better apply the following skillfully. Because prayer is a divine art. And it should be prayed in the first person, you.
Which is as follows, and developed from, Ephesians 1:17-23, as the primary scriptures and with some exegesis. Other scriptures will be cited, but should be considered to be secondary to the primary scriptures. Severing as supporting sources for clarity and applicability. Combined hopefully, they will be applied to the Believers Spirit, our Soul consciousness. Because that’s the only way such praying will manifest itself, artfully, and thus successfully.
“That Father of Jesus Christ, the Father of glory may give to me the spirituality of WISDOM and REVELATION in the KNOWLEDGE of Him,” vs. 17. Three indispensable necessities for successful praying.
“That the eyes of my understanding may be enlightened. So that I might know what is my life’s purpose.” Results, more of an awareness of the unfolding of ones purpose. So than, “what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance through the saints?” vs.18. Results of a life well lived through prayer, cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-15.
Here’s how praying the scriptures work. “And what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe?” vs.19. Answer which in itself is mysterious: “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” (cp. Ephesians 3:20). None of this can be intellectually learned. It must be spiritually experienced, then that’s how it is learned.
It’s unexplainable but it’s compared to the following which is also unexplainable. “It is according to the working of His mighty power, which He worked in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,” vs.20a.
“Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion and every name that is named. Not only in this age, but also in the age to come,” vs. 20b-c.
Think in terms of the United States, as a country, PRINCIPALITY, POWERFUL and MIGHTY, as a united Dominion with many famous people of renowned accomplishments. Who can never be matched now or later.
All that is set aside, and made of no significance, When the God, who raised Christ from the dead, calls, empowers a praying saint. And is connected through all of the aforementioned.
It’s the will of, the Glorious Father, who has made Christ, His stalwart authority, and being secondary no one visible or invisible.
Christ is the church, and we are His body. The very fullness of the Glorious Father, who is the fullness of Him, and thus us, who is all and in all! vs’ 21-23).
What happens, when one prays according to the above teachings, and God appears to be silent. When that happens, and it will, not only concerning global matters, but also our mundane issues. Introspection is necessary because the causes of God are supreme.
Meditate, and pray for enlightenment based upon the following. Guidance and understanding of His council and purposes. “Remember the former things of old. For I am God, and there is no other. I am God, and there is none like Me. Declaring the end from the beginning. And from ancient times things not yet come.” Saying, “My council shall stand, and I will do all My pleasures.” (cp. Isaiah 46:9-10).
