More prayers needed

Postby Snaph » Thu Jan 27, 2005 8:33 pm

My nephew is in Mosul right now and has already taken a bullet through his goggles and out his head-set. He is ok, thank the Lord. His Name is LT Jeremy Rockwell. Great kid, He got robbed one deer season...I will share that later, cuz I think it will be a good topic for hunting ethics. Anyway, I just got this from my sister. It is something to think about.

(Start) While prayers are certainly needed for all
our soldiers, a special
request follows for the troops that will be
delivering the materials
for the upcoming Iraqi elections.




SPECIAL REQUEST FROM DBC MEMBER LYLE
SHACKELFORD, SERVING AS A CHAPLAIN
WITH U.S. ARMY UNIT IN IRAQ:

As a transportation battalion, my unit will
be delivering the voting
machines and the ballots to villages and
cities throughout Iraq during
the upcoming elections. (January 30/31) Our
convoys are prime targets
for the insurgents because they do not want
the equipment to arrive at
the polling stations nor do they want the
local Iraqi citizens to have
the chance to vote; timely delivery must
occur so that the elections
occur. Encourage your friends and family
members and those within our
churches to pray specifically for the
electoral process. Historically,
the previous totalitarian regime would not
allow individual citizens to
vote. Democracy will not be realized in Iraq
if intelligent and
competent officials are not elected to those
strategic leadership
positions within the emerging government;
freedom will not have an
opportunity to ring throughout this country
if the voting process
fails. Announce this prayer request to your
contacts throughout your
churches, neighborhoods, and places of
business. Those with leadership
roles within the local church post this
message in as many newsletters
and bulletins as possible.

There is unlimited potential for God's
presence in this process but if
we do not pray then our enemy will prevail
(See Ephesians 6:10-17) A
prayer vigil prior to the end of the month
may be an innovative
opportunity for those within your sphere of
influence to pray. This is
a political battle that needs spiritual
intervention. A powerful story
about God's intervention in the lives of
David's mighty men is recorded
in 2 Samuel 23:8-33. David and his warriors
were victorious because of God's intervention. We want to overcome those who would stand in the
way of freedom. David's mighty men triumphed
over incredible odds and
stood their ground and were victorious over
the enemies of Israel.
(Iraqi insurgents' vs God's praying people).
They don't stand a chance.

I will pray with my soldiers before they
leave on their convoys and
move outside our installation gates here at
Tallil. My soldiers are at
the nerve center of the logistic operation to
deliver the voting
machines and election ballots. They will be
driving to and entering the
arena of the enemy. This is not a game for
them it is a historical
mission that is extremely dangerous. No
voting machines or ballots. No
elections.

Your prayer support and God's intervention
are needed to give democracy a chance in this war torn country.

Thank you for reading this e-mail. Please
give this e-mail a wide
dissemination. Thank you for your prayer
support for me and my family.
Stand firm in your battles. (End)

It's me again. Thanks for taking time to read this. Just like ever vote counts...so does every prayer.

IMP always
Everyone must believe in something and I believe I'll go hunting. When men bond something must die.
