Trouble Ahead for John Brennan


In a series of Tweets President Trump wrote,

“John Brennan is panicking. He has disgraced himself, he has disgraced the Country, he has disgraced the entire Intelligence Community. He is the one man who is largely responsible for the destruction of American’s faith in the Intelligence Community and in some people at the….

….top of the FBI. Brennan started this entire debacle about President Trump. We now know that Brennan had detailed knowledge of the (phony) Dossier…he knows about the Dossier, he denies knowledge of the Dossier, he briefs the Gang of 8 on the Hill about the Dossier, which….

they then used to start an investigation about Trump. It is that simple. This guy is the genesis of this whole Debacle. This was a Political hit job, this was not an Intelligence Investigation. Brennan has disgraced himself, he’s worried about staying out of Jail.”

Pray that our justice system will look into these (above) allegations by the President and take swift action.

Pray that the truth will come out about possible Trump campaign surveillance, and that any wrong doings will be soon prosecuted.

Pray for God to Force North Korean Dictator to Let the People Go

Here are four urgent prayer requests:

  1. For the North Korean dictator to continue with the summit in June; and going forward, that God will force him to submit to His will; to denuclearize, and also to release the North Korean people, His people, from slavery—to let them go!
  2. For the Mueller investigation to end soon, even if they have not found anything against Trump. Mueller to do the right thing even if he is humbled by that decision.
  3. For the DOJ to hand over messages to Nunes without delay, even if it causes embarrassment.
  4. For the first lady Melania Trump to have a full recovery from surgery.

Rosenstein Must Go! Mueller Must Go!


There is all kinds of stuff going on in our government that is wrong.

  1. Mueller is investigating matters outside of the scope of which he was hired for. He seems now to be wanting to ask the President questions that would entrap him. And Rosenstein is permitting it. I think Mueller just wants to keep his job as long as possible and wants the lime light. But his whole investigation is a waste of our money, and is an obstruction of justice.
  2. Congress is asking the DOJ for documents that Rosenstein is purposely slow walking. And the few documents they do hand over are highly redacted. This is clearly obstruction of justice.

The President and the country will not put up with this wrong doing much longer. Rosenstein must be impeached or fired. And Mueller must also go.

Mr. President. It is time to say…


“Rosenstein, You’re fired!”

“Mueller, You’re fired!”

It seems that evil these days is getting worse and worse. As the Apostle Paul predicted, “But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Tim. 3:13). We must constantly pray regarding our country and for justice. Here are three things we can pray for:

1. For much needed confirmations. For…

Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State. He is critically needed.

Gina Haspel for a CIA Director.

Dr. Ronny Jackson for a Secretary of the Dept. of the VA.

2. For just indictments and jail time for those involved in the attempted sabotage of the 2016 Presidential election. For a quick and just sentence for…

Andrew McCabe

James Commie

Many others. Pray that all others will be found and convicted. No crime should go unpunished!


3. For wisdom and strength for a those working on the above criminality case; especially for

Devin Newness, Chairmen of the House Intel. Committee.

5 Reasons Why Christians Should Pray for Our President and Our Country


Sometimes I get the feeling that my brothers and sisters in Christ are not doing their rightful duty to pray for our President and for our country.  God wants to bless our country, but that won’t happen if we don’t pray. Here are five reasons why Christians should pray for our President and our country:


1. Prayers Works

In Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, in Matthew 7:7-11, Jesus instructed His disciples on asking and receiving.  He told them that if they will just ask, He will give to them, if they seek they will find, and if they knock the door will be opened to them.

In John 14:13-14 Jesus states, “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”  In John 16:24 Jesus says, “Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.”  Last, in John 15:7 Jesus says, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.”


2. Prayer Works Only for Christians

Why would an unbeliever bother to pray? If he doesn’t believe in God he will not pray, nor will God hear his prayers. Listen to what the bible says regarding the prayers of unbelievers.  In John 9:31 we read, “Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him.”  Also in Proverbs 15:29 it says, “The Lord is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous.”

Therefore, prayer is a work only for believers. We have that task, that mission and we must be faithful in it!


3. We Christians Are Commanded To Pray For Our Leaders

1 Timothy 2:1-2 says,

First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.


4. Our President And Our Country Has Real Specific Needs

God wants us to pray specifically for those needs, one at a time. If we don’t pray we can’t expect God to bring positive changes to our country, “to heal our land” (2 Chron. 7:14).


5. If We Pray We Can Expect The President (And Anyone We Pray For) To Be Encouraged And Strengthened

Yes, there has been many testimonies where someone has been helped by the prayers of others. In 2 Corinthians 1:8-11, Paul wrote that he and his companions were helped by the “prayers of many.”

For we do not want you to be unaware, brethren, of our affliction which came to us in Asia, that we were burdened excessively, beyond our strength, so that we despaired even of life; 9 indeed, we had the sentence of death within ourselves in order that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead; 10 who delivered us from so great a peril of death, and will deliver us, He on whom we have set our hope. And He will yet deliver us, 11 you also joining in helping us through your prayers, that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the favor bestowed upon us through the prayers of many.

 Emergency Prayer Needed for Trump and Country – 5 Key Requests


There are so many important things that Christians should be praying about regarding President Trump and the country. Here are 5 issues that are critical that we need to pray about immediately.

  1. Pray that God would give wisdom to Jeff Sessions as to whether there should be a Special Counsel or not to look into issues involving the FBI, DOJ, the Clinton Foundation, Uranium one, abuses of the FICA court, and many other crimes committed by Hillary Clinton and all those who tried to stop Donald Trump from being elected President.
  2. Pray that God would do His will with the Mueller investigations, and if there was no collusion to just put a stop to the investigations.
  3. Pray that the Sanctuary City battle would soon end in victory according to what is right and constitutional, and that ICE police would be safe and allowed to do their job without interference.
  4. Pray that President Trump would get all the money needed immediately to build and complete the southern boarder wall.
  5. Pray that there would be a fair and quick agreement between President Trump and the two women who are coming after him with complaints over things that happened many years ago. Pray for God’s will in this whole mess. Pray God would give wisdom to the lawyers (Ja. 1:5).

Trump Fine Tunes His Cabinet

President Trump will continue to fine tunes his leader positions for the good of the country.

*Please pray for President Trump and for all those undergoing changes.

State Department:  Rex Tillerson out, Mike Pompeo in.

*Pray that the media and our country would let Trump be Trump.

*Pray that President Trump will not give in to pressure, that he would run the country as he sees best.

Pray for Trump’s Safety as He Meets with the North Korean Dictator


There is a lot on the Presidents table. He needs our constant prayers—for safety, strength, and endurance. Here are a few of the more important issues on his agenda.

  1. To keep our country safe from those who want to shoot up our schools and kill our kids.
  2. To bring back steel and aluminum factories and jobs into our country, as he pursues fair trade practices.
  3. To keep our boarders safe. To work with the AG, to be rid of illegals and gangs and to disband all sanctuary cities and states.
  4. The President is getting ready to meet with the North Korean dictator. Pray for his safety and pray that he will be able to discern what Rocket Man is up to.
  5. Continue to pray that leaders will root out all sources of correction in our government, and pray that all criminals will soon be prosecuted.

Looking Back at Billy Graham’s Life from His Autobiography – Part 7


To celebrate Billy Graham’s life I am re-posting these articles I wrote back in 2013, having to do with his prayer life. Enjoy.

 50 Prayer Experiences: from Billy Graham’s Autobiography, Just As I Am – Part 7

Posted on March 1, 2013 by Stephen Nielsen

In this seventh and last part we will review Billy Graham’s autobiography in terms of his prayers in the later years of his life. He was still going strong as he preached in 55 Crusades (from 1985 to 1996), and he went to places that he may have never thought possible.

Part 7
1985 – 1996

  1. In 1959, when Billy Graham and Grady Wilson went to Moscow as tourists, they visited Lenin Stadium, and being greatly impressed by its vastness, Billy Graham prayed that someday God would open the door for him and his team to go there and preach the gospel. Thirty years later God answered that prayer. Billy Graham was invited by Russian church leaders to hold a full-scale evangelism crusade in Moscow and other cities in October of 1992. (pp. 380, 556)
  2. I think one of the highlights of Billy Graham’s ministry was the two Amsterdam’s (in 1983 and 1986) in Holland. They were gatherings of over 5,000 itinerant evangelists from all over the world with the objective of training, helping and encouragement. Billy recalled that the corporate prayer times were especially moving. I can imagine that it was a little chaotic since there were so many different languages spoken in prayer, but Billy said that it was “thrilling to realize that God could understand them all.” (p. 576).
  3. In 1991, on the day that the Gulf War started, Billy Graham was in the White House with President George Bush and Barbara. As they watched what was happening on CNN on TV Billy suggested that they pray. They prayed that the war would be short and with few casualties. Well as we know the war was very short, with only a few casualties (at least on our side). (p. 585)
  4. Billy Graham’s two trips to North Korea, in 1992 and 1994, was something he never expected to experience. Foreigners, much less Christian evangelists have not been permitted in that country. But he had a growing desire to go and speak there. God had put it in his heart, mainly, he thought, because it was where Ruth grew up as a missionary in the 30’s, and also because he knew that in that time (the 30’s) Korea (north and south) had a very large Christian population. But sadly, now only a few old Christians remain; the rest have fled, and many have been martyred.

At first, all their efforts to get into Korea turned out to be dead ends. But with continued prayer, a way finally opened up through Dr. Stephen Linton who knew several diplomats. As a result of a one year’s worth of discussion in both New York and Pyongyang, North Korea, an official invitation finally arrived from the Korean Protestant Federation.

Well, as you can imagine Billy Graham was not allowed to preach the gospel as usual to try to bring others to Christ. There were only two churches that he was allowed to preach in—a Protestant church and a Catholic church. He was also invited to speak to students and political leaders—not to preach, but to give academic lectures. In his first visit in 1992 he recounted that to his surprise Kim Il Sung University invited him to deliver a lecture to 400 students. He spoke on “The Influence of Religion on American Society.” On his second visit in 1994, to a much larger group in the same university, he spoke on the major problems facing the world. He recounted, “I pointed out that as a Christian, I was convinced that the root of all our problems came from the human heart, and that our greatest need was spiritual in nature.”

At another time Billy was given the great opportunity to speak to about 1000 political and economic leaders. They were apparently selected to come and hear him and to spy him out—so as to get an advantage on us as Americans. But as we know, what others mean for evil, God can turn it around for good. I have no doubt that the speaking and the friendships Billy made there will come to great good. Possibly many hearts have come to Christ because of those two visits. (pp. 616-632)

  1. Billy Graham got to know many people in his travels and ministry, and I can imagine that he cherished their friendships. But when they died he also experienced great loss. Billy recalled that in 1968 when Dr. Marten Luther King Jr. died, he lost a great friend. At the time of his death he was playing gulf in Australia. And immediately, when he heard the sad news he had all the journalists and others gather around for prayer. They prayed for the family, for the United States, and for the healing of racial divisions in the world. (p. 696)
