Summary: Prayer that pleads the blood of the lamb; the saving power of Christ for all afflictions in particular the affliction of oppression.
Prayer, For The Oppression Of God's Family
Dr. Gale A. Ragan-Reid (June 29, 2014)
“In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old” (Isaiah 63:9, King James Version [Christ's power to save]).
For the oppression of women, the people cry in the night
For the oppression of the children, little girls and little boys, the people cry out in the night
Is it the night that you fear or the forces of evil that prevail in the darkness to kill, steal and destroy?
Set your eyes on high.
Elijah ascended to God. Our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus ascended to God. Our own modern time leader, Martin Luther said he went to the mountain top.
You, too, must set your eyes on high.
As Apostle Paul told the Corinthians in his first letter to them, “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him” (2:9).
Look to Jesus that walked on the water.
Look to Jesus who calmed the sea.
Look to Jesus who fed the five thousand.
Look to Jesus who fed the four thousand.
Look to Jesus who died for you and who died for me.
Look to Jesus who covered you with His blood.
It is by the blood of the lamb that I stand in the gap, on the words of Prophet Isaiah (63:9) believing Christ's power to save.
“We are troubled but not distressed.
We are perplexed but not in despair.
We are persecuted but not forsaken.
We are cast down but not destroyed” (II Corinthians 4: 8-9, KJV [Hope of immortal glory]).
Witnessing the glory of God. To God be the glory.
It is by the grace of Christ Jesus that the quality of my belief system drives me to miracle making faith.
It is by the grace of Christ Jesus that the quality of my belief system breaks the chains that bind my faith.
It is by the grace of Christ Jesus that the quality of my belief system convicts my heart to feel God's love and say, “I did right to love the Lord with all my heart and all my soul”.
God will see you through.
God saw the children of Israel through over 400 years of slavery in Egypt.
God saw the children of Africa through over 200 years of slavery in America.
God will see you through.
The price was paid. Jesus paid the price. Jesus redeemed you with His blood. You have a redemptive love. Who have you redeemed with the redemptive love given to you? When all else fails you, God will see you through. When everyone you know turns their back on you, God will see you through. When the rent needs to be paid or the mortgage, even the car note needs to be paid or groceries need to be purchased and your children have lost faith in you, God will see you through. I would not let Satan take my children when all seems lost and tomorrow holds no hope, God will see you through. You know
