Have you quit listening to the news because it makes you look at a bleak future in a world full of hate and suffering? And ramping up fear is a way to get more people watching and listening, great for the bottom line of radio and television stations..
If you are tired of fearing what might happen today and in the future, read this blog by Dave Huizenga. Yes, it’s September 11 with all of its painful memories. But there is something you can do…PRAY.
Pray what’s in your heart. Cry out to God.
But remember this: In Christ, an everyday man or woman becomes someone with the power and authority to expose the devil’s schemes and to drive him out and away from all things.
Join us praying out loud–multiple times today–the prayer in Dave’s blog.
The world is under the authority of the almighty God. He will act on our prayers.

Daily Devotions by Pastor Dave Huizenga, posted August 7, 2013
O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you.
My soul thirsts for you;
my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land
where there is no water.
David wrote Psalm 63 in the desert – he moved from Jerusalem across the Jordan River into…nothing land: hot, dry, waterless.
Modern day Syria is far north of the desert King David was in, but it has a similar climate, it is hot, dry and waterless. On this day September 11, modern day Syria, is in civil war and in danger of becoming the center of global war. Already thousands have been mercilessly killed by chemical warfare.
On this day in American history, September 11, we are reminded of the thousands who died at the hands of terrorists in the Twin Towers in New York.
How do these two realities converge on this day? War in Syria and the war on terrorism in America? Psalm 63 gives us a clue: both Syria and the United States are “dry and weary lands where there is no water.” Both countries are in desperate need for the power and glory of God to break through their godless, spiritually dry, waterless realities.
You can join the movement of the power and glory of God today in prayer. You can make a difference on this day as you pray aloud in the power and authority of the name of Jesus Christ.
Heavenly Father, in Your name and in the name of Jesus Christ I declare that Syria is under Your authority. All schemes and plans to use this country as a center for terrorism or the cause for global war are now cancelled in Jesus name. All ties between the United States and Syria that the devil is using to threaten our globe with more death and destruction are cut NOW in the power of the name of Jesus. Only God’s Will by the working and power of the Holy Spirit can reign on this day. In Jesus’ name, I bind President Obama to the will of God the Father and speak blessings of wisdom and truth to reign in our President’s heart. I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
