(OUR FAITH IN GOD DOES NOT MEAN WE ARE DEAF, DUMB OR BLIND!)
I realized the political opinions are a delicate and sensitive issue, however, the time has come for righteous people to pray, speak up and act in the defense of children, the elderly and the poor, as would Jesus. The asinine antics of the Republican Party has disemployed over 800 thousand people, rendered our CIA, Homeland Security and the National Immigration Services unable to protect us. The Republicans Congressional members have shut down services to veterans, the elderly, the children, the disabled and the poor.
Furthermore, their hostage taking, hijacking of the American government is by some estimates accruing a 300 million dollars daily debt that you, I and our children will have to pay. Even Senator John McCain has called these Congressional Republicans, "wacko birds".
My dear friends, I feel obligated to encourage you to ignore the biased, slanted and factually untrue reporting concerning the government shut down from the Fox News Network and other Republican pseudo-news sources.
It is now abundantly clear that the Republican hatred for President Obama, particularly the Tea Party faction's hatred for the President, has enraged the majority of Republican Congressional members to non-sensibility at best, and near insanity at worst. One independent news organization reporter referred to them as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Republicans. Micah 6: 8 says, "He hath shown thee, O man, what is good: and what doth the Lord require of thee but to do justly and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
These people are not doing what is good for anybody. The Republicans are not doing what is just for anybody. These Republicans are not showing the spirit of mercy toward anybody. And these Republicans are definitely not walking humbly before God or us in their wholesale disenfranchisement of the American people's constitutional right to a working government.

I encourage the people of God to remember 2 Chronicles 7:14 at a time like this. If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Now is the time for us to intercede in prayer to the Lord for His protection against those "who know NOT what they do. It is time to let the devil know that the righteous people of faith in God of America do not have our heads buried in the sand, we have our heads bowed in intercession for the iniquity of its leaders. - Pastor Joe Flores
