I grew up hunting ducks in the Yakima Valley.
I know lame ducks exist, but I have never seen one in flight. Ducks are smart and purposeful.
The next two weeks, beginning today, so-called "lame ducks" have flocked back to the natural habitat of Washington DC to hold a so-called, "lame-duck," two-week session of Congress.
Will it be two weeks of tyranny?
Those who have been removed from power by virtue of the recent election, may be lame in tenure, but seem willing to fire the last shot toward a citizenry that has rejected them, their abuse of power and the President's policies they have enabled and advanced.
Without accountability, the old majority has said they want to eliminate tax relief for business owners in the worst economy in recent memory, seek to repeal the "Don't Ask-Don't Tell" policy, even though many non-politicized military leaders oppose the move, continue and advance tax-payer-funded college scholarships for illegal aliens, confirm radical judges, verify treaties that undermine the sovereignty of the United States and attempt to merge House and Senate bills to incorporate provisions that advance climate change legislation.
Are these people anti-American? Or deluded by the loud minority voice of a far-left White House and media? Confused?---Out of touch with those who elected them in 2006 and 2008, or simply don't care?
What we do know is that the next two weeks could be two weeks of tyranny.
Just as duck hunters shield themselves from view in duck blinds, political lame ducks shield themselves by professing to be doing the people's work, even though the people have removed them from office.
Several national organizations are asking people to sign petitions opposing some of the agenda I listed above. While I wholeheartedly agree with that kind of action and it is most often very effective, I'm wondering how effective it could be with this group over the next two weeks.
Will Senator Patty Murray have a change of heart because she receives a message from someone who opposes her positions? How about Maria Cantwell? It can't hurt to communicate with them, but will it matter to them?
The greatest impact on the next two weeks, I believe, would be focused, purposeful prayer. Specific prayer, asking God to intervene on behalf of America, her purpose and destiny.
I am personally setting aside time every day for the next two weeks to pray that the far left agenda for our country will be restrained during this volatile time.
Would you join me? I know we should always pray for our country and its leaders, and I believe many of you do.
I'm thinking of a very focused, fervent prayer for our nation and God's will for our country, specifically during the next two weeks.
If you want to let me know you are joining with us, just send a personal email. It is always encouraging to know you are standing with others of like mind and heart with singular purpose.
God answers prayer. Thank you for standing with us.
Be Prayerful. Be Vigilant. Be Purposeful. Be Blessed.
