Going Too Far
Someone got fired yesterday in the shaking media mountain. Kathy Griffin thought it was funny a couple of days ago to pretend President Trump had been beheaded. Shocking, isn’t it?! See, what’s happening is that the mockery of this president by the press has gone too far. Those in the media who are negative have forgotten respect and decency. They have begun to feed off one another’s rhetoric until we have terroristic actions (faked in effigy and/or verbally aggressive) taking place. This is where you see the demonic taking hold of the mountain in an overly confident manner. The enemy always overplays his hand, and surely did in this case. Goodbye, Kathy. We are watching for others in your field to follow.
“Drive out the scoffer, and contention will go out, even strife and dishonor will cease.” (Proverbs 22:10; NASB)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
It’s time to hit our faces, Church. We must repent for where we have joined in the fray. Ask the Lord to forgive you, if you have been mocking and judgmental of others, especially of those in leadership.
Ask the Lord to give you a pure heart, one that believes the best about others and is hopeful for the future.
Intercede on behalf of those in the media that do not know God or His way. Pray that they would be checked by their consciences or by the Holy Spirit Himself, where their consciences are seared, that they stop mocking.
Declare that the media will stop trying to cause harm to our President, other governmental leaders, and our nation.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, I repent for where I have fallen into defensiveness, judging others, even making fun of some our nation’s leaders. I should be interceding instead. You love the lost and they really do not understand what they are doing! Even if they do know You, they are human beings standing in the need of daily grace, just like me. Purify my heart and grant me compassion. We ask You to stop the mockery of the President by the media. We declare that the President, other governmental leaders, and our nation will not be harmed by the words or actions of an out of control media. If they do not stop, we are confident that You will make sure they are removed, Jesus. Amen.
We decree that strife and dishonor of our President will cease as the media is corrected by God in answer to the prayers of the Saints.
