New Wells in the Year of Ayin

At sundown on September 18, 2009 we entered the New Year of 5770 on the Jewish calendar. During my times of prayer and study I have sensed there are about to be some dramatic changes in the coming year. As I continued to pray, further definition came. The purpose of this post is to share my impressions regarding this new season we are entering as the Body of Christ. I must emphasize here that we have entered not just a new season, but a new era. I will compare it to those life-changing times like graduating from school, being on your own for the first time, marriage, or the birth of your first child. Not just a change of season, but dramatic change that makes us realize we have never been this way before.

During a time of prayer I received the following impression:

It is the time of the glory of the burning bush. Like Moses there is a turning to "see" the fire. When the wonder of the fire is seen, there will be a hearing of the voice of God. God is calling forth His deliverers from the wilderness. The law has sentenced them to die, but they shall hear the voice of their Redeemer and shall declare, "My Redeemer lives!" Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!

Your wilderness season has come to an end. You must walk out of the wilderness and into your destiny. Can you hear the cries?

It is time to deliver the church from the taskmasters. The people of God have been in bondage too long. Release the signs and wonders that will harden the hearts to bring a greater glory. Release the message of grace that will bring shock and awe. The message of grace will release shock waves through the church and transform the culture. It is time to set the captives free.

Moses understood the protocol of kings. His past prepared him to walk out his destiny, but the wilderness formed his character to release the miracles.

The symbol for the Year 5770 is the 16th letter of the Hebrew Aleph-Bet, AYIN. The letter AYIN has a numeric value of seventy.

The word “ayin” means – eye; to see, and by extension, to understand and obey. It also means "Divine Providence".

Ayin represents the primeval light or the spiritual light of God.
Genesis 1:3
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

I believe that as we pray during this new season, we will see an illumination. The hidden things that have been done in darkness will be brought to light.

The ayin is described as having 2 eyes – the choice of using good or evil to perceive things – optimism or pessimism. It is vital during this new season that we pray concerning the media. The perceptions of people around the world are being molded daily by the media. We must pray for new media outlets to emerge that will speak the truth. We must pray for reporters to present us with facts and not just opinions on what is happening in the world. In the past we have seen a targeted effort to alter the way events are perceived – evil or good.
Must pray for an arising of alternative media who will perceive from the “good eye”.

Ayin is a silent letter. (No translation of it in English) It sees, but does not speak; represents humility.

The name ayin can also mean “eye” or “fountain”, a fountain of wisdom and the ability to perceive wisdom.

The ayin is said to represent two eyes connecting to the optic nerve. The shape of this letter also is similar to a "spade" or a "shovel" used for digging. This brings me to the next part of what was revealed for this season. During a recent time of corporate prayer at our church a declaration was released that it is time for the "Sarah's and Elizabeth's" to give birth. Sarah and Elizabeth both conceived and gave birth in their old age. I believe during this season we will see a revitalizing of the "senior saints" to play a more active role. I am also praying for a coming together of the generations to unite the wisdom of the elders with the energy of the youth.

Sarah gave birth to Isaac. Isaac was the son of promise of Abraham and Sarah. The story of Isaac from Genesis 26 gives us great insight into the season we have just entered.

1 There was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham.

A famine in the land - FAMINE - drastic food shortage; severe hunger and starvation.

A famine in the land of Jehovah’s word.

“Besides the first famine” - the famine touched each generation.

Natural circumstances were put in place to disclose the hunger of the heart.

And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines, in Gerar.

Abimelech was the common name for a Philistine king, like pharaoh was the common name for an Egyptian king.

2 Then the LORD appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you. 3 Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. 4 And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; 5 because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.”
I was during this time of famine that the Lord appears to Isaac. He gives him an instruction - “Dwell in THIS land” and I will be with you and bless you.

Isaac could not look at the conditions in the natural. He had to choose to obey.

The Lord reminds him of the generational promise.

“I will perform the oath which I SWORE to Abraham you father."

The word SWORE is shaba (shavah) - to swear, to give one’s word, to bind oneself with an oath. The origin of this verb is the noun sheba, which means “seven”. To completely bind oneself to fulfilling an oath, or to “seven” oneself, to repeat some detail of the oath seven times or “complete”.

God is giving Isaac an irrevocable oath or promise.

It is really important that we understand the surety of this oath. In Genesis 21:29-30 during the life of Abraham, Abraham makes an oath with Abimelech with 7 ewe lambs to seal a covenant that Abraham had ownership of a well at Beersheba.

6 So Isaac dwelt in Gerar. 7 And the men of the place asked about his wife. And he said, “She is my sister”; for he was afraid to say, “She is my wife,” because he thought, “lest the men of the place kill me for Rebekah, because she is beautiful to behold.” 8 Now it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked through a window, and saw, and there was Isaac, showing endearment to Rebekah his wife. 9 Then Abimelech called Isaac and said, “Quite obviously she is your wife; so how could you say, ‘She is my sister’?” Isaac said to him, “Because I said, ‘Lest I die on account of her.’” 10 And Abimelech said, “What is this you have done to us? One of the people might soon have lain with your wife, and you would have brought guilt on us.” 11 So Abimelech charged all his people, saying, “He who touches this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.”

Immediately after the promise - Isaac has his faith challenged. He is confronted by generational sin. His daddy’s devils came after him. When is father Abraham was in this same region of Gerar - he allowed fear to cloud his judgement. Abraham lied about his wife being his sister (a half-truth) - it was deceptive, unnecessary, and faithless.

Abraham made God small and relied upon himself. Isaac chose the same path. Isaac needed to learn about covenant.

It was after this that Isaac stepped out in faith.

12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him. 13 The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous; 14 for he had possessions of flocks and possessions of herds and a great number of servants. So the Philistines envied him.

The blessing of wealth came with persecution.

Mark 10:29"I tell you the truth," Jesus replied, "no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel 30will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—and with them, persecutions) and in the age to come, eternal life.

Genesis 26:15 Now the Philistines had stopped up all the wells which his father’s servants had dug in the days of Abraham his father, and they had filled them with earth.
I believe the wells represent “digging” for life, “digging” for revelation. The Philistines filled these wells with earth. Many times the wells that we have dug in prayer, or that others in previous generations have dug in prayer becomes filled with the world.

Sometimes we need to “pick up the shovel and dig another well.”

16 And Abimelech said to Isaac, “Go away from us, for you are much mightier than we.” 17 Then Isaac departed from there and pitched his tent in the Valley of Gerar, and dwelt there.

Isaac “settled” in Gerar (lodging place) - a narrow place.

Sometimes God has to move us into a narrow place to realize that we need to dig.

18 And Isaac dug again the wells of water which they had dug in the days of Abraham his father, for the Philistines had stopped them up after the death of Abraham. He called them by the names which his father had called them. 19 Also Isaac’s servants dug in the valley, and found a well of running water there.

Isaac had already dealt with his father’s fears and had come into a narrow place. He now began to search out (dig) what his father had searched out.

20 But the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with Isaac’s herdsmen, saying, “The water is ours.” So he called the name of the well Esek, because they quarreled with him.

Sometimes when you begin to search things out and dig a well you come to a place of “contention”. Esek means “contention”.

The “herdsmen” of the Philistines were not happy about his revelation. Some would call them “shepherds”, but they were worldly, just herdsmen. Not everyone will be happy about your revelation - there may be some contention.

21 Then they dug another well, and they quarreled over that one also. So he called its name Sitnah.

Sitnah - strife

James 3:16 - For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

Isaac was in a narrow place (a place of consecration) seeking a place without struggle or strife.

He was digging in the valley - the torrent valley (wadi - dry except during periods of rain) - the place of the palm tree (symbol of victory; flourishing and upright)

It says that Isaac’s servants dug. One of the definitions of that word servant is PROPHET.

The prophets dug in the valley and encountered/found revival!
Even though they found what they had been digging for, there was contention and strife. Isaac called it what it was!

Isaac did not camp there - he continued to move.

22 And he moved from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it. So he called its name Rehoboth, because he said, “For now the LORD has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.”

He finally came into a wide place.

I believe that we have finally come into a wide place! We have had glimpses of revival - tastes of the glory. It is still here, even though we don’t always perceive it.

Pick up the shovel - we still have some more wells to dig!

23 Then he went up from there to Beersheba. 24 And the LORD appeared to him the same night and said, “I am the God of your father Abraham; do not fear, for I am with you. I will bless you and multiply your descendants for My servant Abraham’s sake.” 25 So he built an altar there and called on the name of the LORD, and he pitched his tent there; and there Isaac’s servants dug a well. 26 Then Abimelech came to him from Gerar with Ahuzzath, one of his friends, and Phichol the commander of his army. 27 And Isaac said to them, “Why have you come to me, since you hate me and have sent me away from you?” 28 But they said, “We have certainly seen that the LORD is with you. So we said, ‘Let there now be an oath between us, between you and us; and let us make a covenant with you, 29 that you will do us no harm, since we have not touched you, and since we have done nothing to you but good and have sent you away in peace. You are now the blessed of the LORD.’” 30 So he made them a feast, and they ate and drank. 31 Then they arose early in the morning and swore an oath with one another; and Isaac sent them away, and they departed from him in peace.

Isaac found a place of peace.

32 It came to pass the same day that Isaac’s servants came and told him about the well which they had dug, and said to him, “We have found water.” 33 So he called it Shebah. Therefore the name of the city is Beersheba to this day.

They continued to dig - there was a continual consecration.

Isaac proclaimed a “wide place”.

At last Jehovah has made room for us! And we will bear fruit and be fruitful in this territory!

God met with him and blessed him (fulfilled the oath).

Beersheba - the place of the sevenfold oath. The well of seven.

To establish ownership, Abraham paid 7 ewe lambs and swore and oath to Abimelech.

It is my strong conviction that the Lord has made room for us in this new season.

Many generations have dug in prayer what you have just unearthed. Take ownership! Own the revelation! Own the mantle you are called to wear!

Own the place of victory! Stop striving and continue to dig until you come to the place of true nature change!

Possess the gates of your enemies in prayer - it is part of the promise.

This is the time of the “seven”. The complete fulfillment of the oath of promise.

This is the year of completion. Cycles are being completed to bring about complete fulfillment.

You possess a more excellent covenant - shall it not be fulfilled!

It is time to unearth what is stopping up the wells.

Building Your Trust Fund

In light of the recent economic news many of us have been watching the fluctuating stock market. Our leaders in Washington are holding meetings today with business leaders and economic advisers searching for the elusive answers for our stalled economy. Many "change" voters are waiting for Barack Obama to step up to the plate and hit one out of the park.

Our credit markets have stalled because there is so much "bad debt" out there that lending institutions are holding onto their money because they don't know who to trust.

So my friend, how is your trust fund doing? Where have you deposited your hope for your future? Is it in the government bailout? The stock market? Your 401k? Your career or business venture? In capitalism and the free enterprise system? Or is your trust in someone higher?

Recently I have been evaluating my own "trust fund". I realize that I cannot trust in man or the systems of man. There is only one who is worthy of my full trust and that is Jesus Christ. His Word is truth and it cannot fail. There are times, however, when there are certain challenges to this trust. Sometimes the challenges are in the areas of health, or relationships, or even finances. When these challenges hit hard against my "trust fund", I need to take immediate action to secure the trust. I have found that daily deposits of the Word of God insure my "trust fund" will remain strong. These deposits of the Word strengthen my faith and yield great dividends during challenging times. It is also important to state our trust in Him by verbally saying the promises of His word. Praise and worship are key to maintaining our relationship with our Lord and building the trust. Worship strengthens our relationship and builds trust as we come to know Him more intimately. Further, it is important to build relationships with other believers who will add to our trust fund by their testimonies. We also build our trust by giving and acts of faith. Faith pleases God. We must make our trust in Him.

And those who know Your name will put their trust in You;For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You. Psalm 9:10

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

I urge you to build your trust fund today by seeking the Lord. He holds the answers you are looking for and will lead you in the way you should go.

A Tribute to Veterans

Veterans Day is an annual American holiday honoring military veterans. Both a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states, it is usually observed on November 11. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)
The holiday is commonly printed as Veteran's Day or Veterans' Day in calendars and advertisements. While these spellings are grammatically acceptable, the United States government has declared that the attributive (no apostrophe) rather than the possessive case is the official spelling.

U.S. President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed an Armistice Day for November 12, 1919. The United States Congress passed a concurrent resolution seven years later on June 4, 1926, requesting the President issue another proclamation to observe November 11 with appropriate ceremonies.

In 1953, an Emporia, Kansas, shoe store owner named Al King had the idea to expand Armistice Day to celebrate all veterans, not just those who served in World War I. King had been actively involved with the American War Dads during World War II. He began a campaign to turn Armistice Day into "All" Veterans Day. The Emporia Chamber of Commerce took up the cause after determining that 90% of Emporia merchants as well as the Board of Education supported closing their doors on November 11, 1953, to honor veterans. With the help of then-U.S. Rep. Ed Rees, also from Emporia, a bill for the holiday was pushed through Congress. President Dwight Eisenhower signed it into law on May 26, 1954. Congress amended this act on November 8, 1954, replacing "Armistice" with Veterans, and it has been known as Veterans Day since.

The original concept for the celebration was for a day observed with parades and public meetings and a brief suspension of business beginning at 11 a.m.

Today in America the citizens of this great nation choose to set aside our differing opinions of war and instead focus upon the valor of those who have served this nation in the military. Nearly every American family has its own military history. This history needs to be passed on to our children so future generations understand that freedom is not an entitlement, but it is bought with great price. I remember the stories my grandmother shared with me of her brothers and a sister enlisting and serving during World War II. My one great uncle served in the Pacific as an aviation navigator and returned home to his family. My great aunt was a Navy nurse caring for the wounded. My other great uncle served in the Army in Europe and gave his life in the Battle of the Bulge. I have other uncles who served in the Korean conflict, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and the current war in Iraq.

As Americans we can never forget the sacrifice of those who serve. The family members of our military pay a great price. We have a responsibility to pray for our troops and their families each day. Please join me in praying that their mission is accomplished with excellence and honor and they return home safely. Pray for the cause of freedom to be expanded around the globe.

Thank a veteran today. Make an effort to let our military personnel know how much we value what they are doing. You can go to this website,, and connect with the different organizations that are committed to serving those who serve us. May God richly bless you as you reach out to our military personnel and their families.

As Americans, we must not be silent on issues concerning our national defense or the funding of our troops. We must let our newly elected President and the Congress know that we will not support any legislation that will adversely affect our military or infringe upon the freedoms that so many have given their lives to protect.

Prophecy of Victory

My husband was looking at the KCM website recently and found this encouraging prophetic word which he shared with me. It is so uplifting that I wanted to pass it on to others.

“Pay Attention to Me…My system is stronger than ever.”
Don’t pay attention to or make any plans based on what the media says
or what the politicians say. Stand on My Word in John 16. Pay attention to Me.
I [the Holy Spirit] will obey verses 13-15. I will show you things to come. I will
lead you through troubled times. I already have THE plan for you, and it’s very
good. Follow it. It will not only get you through, it will place you in a very high
place—a rich place—a strong place of victory.
You will have to discipline yourself and be diligent to listen to Me. All the
other voices will have a plan, a word, an idea for your future and security.
Don’t listen to Babylon’s system. It has fallen apart. My system is stronger than
ever. My kingdom is flourishing, and THE BLESSING is the place to be.
Keep your eyes on My Word. Listen to it. It will guide you and I will
perform it. Love Me. Love My people as I have loved you. Walk in it. Love never
fails, and neither does My plan.
Be very cautious to stay completely clean from covetousness. First
Timothy 6:10 must live in the forefront of your thinking. If you will do these
things and continue therein, you will come into your wealthy place. A place
lifted up. A place in Me already planned and prepared for you now. Here. Not
heaven—not yet. But it will seem like heaven right in the midst of all the
trouble, and you’ll be able to reach out to untold numbers of suffering people
with the Good News of the gospel.
I’m coming very soon. Sooner than you think. Keep your eyes on Me and
you’ll get the job done.
—Prophecy delivered by Kenneth Copeland
Oct. 19, 2008

Now more than ever we must turn off the voice of the world and tune into the voice of God. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts, and his ways are higher than our ways. Friend, let's take the high road.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:57

Fear Not!

In the past few days I have noticed a great divide in our nation that I have not heard reported upon in the news. This great divide centers around two words, fear and hope. Countless times on talk radio, television interviews, and even my personal encounters with people who come to our business I have heard statements like the following:

"I am so afraid."

"I'm scared to death about what might happen."

"I fear for our nation."

What troubles me the most when I hear these words is that they are coming from people who made a vote of conscience on moral issues and claim a belief in God.

Hundreds of times in scripture we read the words "fear not." We also know according to the Bible that "out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks." What ever happened to the "home of the free and the brave?" Where is our courage? In whom have we placed our confidence and trust? It is even inscribed upon our currency, "In God We Trust."

In Hebrews 11:1 it reads, Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. God is moved by our faith. In order for us to operate in faith as a nation, we must move away from fear and into hope. Many who voted for Barack Obama have great hope in what he will do for them when he is President. We cannot place our hope in a man, because men will always fail. It is time for us to hope in God.

The problems facing our nation in this critical hour need the remedy of heaven. Collectively as a nation we must seek God as never before. In the words of President Franklin Roosevelt, "We have nothing to fear, but fear itself." Fear is the cancer of the soul. Once it enters, it wants to take over every thought. The spread of fear must be stopped and it begins within our own heart. It is time for us to stop speaking words of fear, doubt, and unbelief. Proclaim a fast of negative words. We must be like King David and encourage ourselves.

America has faced many challenges in our brief history, yet she has prevailed because the hand of God has been upon us. Pray for America. Believe that the foundation of our Constitution will remain strong. Fight injustice at every level and allow your voice to be heard in Washington. Stir up the embers of hope and believe that America will continue to be a beacon of hope and freedom to the world.

The People Have Chosen

The people of the United States have spoken by casting their ballots. Barack Obama is now our President-elect. As I have been considering this possibility over the last few days, I am reminded of the following passage in 1 Samuel 8:

1 Now it came to pass when Samuel was old that he made his sons judges over Israel. 2 The name of his firstborn was Joel, and the name of his second, Abijah; they were judges in Beersheba. 3 But his sons did not walk in his ways; they turned aside after dishonest gain, took bribes, and perverted justice.4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah, 5 and said to him, “Look, you are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.” 6 But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.” So Samuel prayed to the LORD. 7 And the LORD said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them. 8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt, even to this day—with which they have forsaken Me and served other gods—so they are doing to you also. 9 Now therefore, heed their voice. However, you shall solemnly forewarn them, and show them the behavior of the king who will reign over them.”

The children of Israel were so dissastisfied with the possibility of Samuel's sons leading them, that they rejected the current plan of government. They so desperately wanted change and wanted to be like other nations that they even rejected God and His plan for them. God loves us so much that we created us with free will. He gave us the opportunity to choose to love Him. Loving Him includes loving His ways which are defined in scripture.

The collective cry of the people of America has been for change. Now we shall have it. This nation is about to change, to what extent remains to be seen. The church in America can no longer remain silent. We must allow our voices to be heard like never before. We the people must actively participate in every piece of legislation that is presented. We must hold our elected officials accountable for every vote. This is not a time to cower, but a time to arise! We must defend the cause of liberty with a renewed zeal.

It is time to pray for our leaders like never before. The next administration has many challenges that will require heaven's strategies. It is our responsibility to pray. It does us no good to curse the darkness. We must allow the light of the Gospel (Good News) to shine more brightly than every before.
*Pray for the protection of the United States.
*Pray that the Constitution is upheld.
*Pray for the Supreme Court to strictly adhere to the Constitution.
*Pray for our leaders to walk in humility, wisdom, and the fear of the Lord.

Election Day Prayer Focus

How would Jesus vote?

Today the citizens of the United States have the opportunity to choose the leader of the free world. This awesome responsibility is afforded to us by the Constitution and paid for by the brave men and women who paid the ultimate price in the service of our nation. In the words of Bill Gates, "If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading this in English, thank a veteran."

As we cast our vote today, my prayer is that each of us will ask this question, how would Jesus vote if He were standing here? Many may call this presumptious to know the mind of God, however, if we read the scriptures and follow the principles that Jesus taught, we can vote in a way that is pleasing to Him.

We must also consider that we will be held accountable for the actions of the person we vote to put in office. We also will be held accountable for the party platform which we ratify by our vote. If we give power to a party platform that advocates abortion, we are responsible for the lives that are lost.

Please pray for America during this crucial time. It is not only the selection of our next President and Vice-President, but our Senators, Representatives, and local leaders as well. Our vote is a seed and we will reap the harvest in our government. Will we sow to the spirit or to the flesh? Will we reap righteousness or corruption? We the People will declare our future today. I pray that America remains the Shining City on the Hill so eloquently described in President Ronald Reagan's farewell address:

And that's about all I have to say tonight. Except for one thng. The past few days when I've been at that window upstairs, I've thought a bit of the "shining city upon a hill." The phrase comes from John Winthrop, who wrote it to describe the America he imagined. What he imagined was important because he was an early Pilgrim, an early freedom man. He journeyed here on what today we'd call a little wooden boat; and like the other Pilgrims, he was looking for a home that would be free.
I've spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don't know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace, a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity, and if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it and see it still.
And how stands the city on this winter night? More prosperous, more secure, and happier than it was eight years ago. But more than that; after 200 years, two centuries, she still stands strong and true on the granite ridge, and her glow has held steady no matter what storm. And she's still a beacon, still a magnet for all who must have freedom, for all the pilgrims from all the lost places who are hurtling through the darkness, toward home.
We've done our part. And as I walk off into the city streets, a final word to the men and women of the Reagan revolution, the men and women across America who for eight years did the work that brought America back. My friends: We did it. We weren't just marking time. We made a difference. We made the city stronger. We made the city freer, and we left her in good hands. All in all, not bad, not bad at all.
And so, good-bye, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.

My fellow Americans, may we do our part today and vote to keep America the beacon of freedom, the land of opportunity, and one nation under God. Today, let us once again consider the lessons of 9/11. On that day we were not Democrats or Republicans, we were Americans. We were united in a cause greater than oursevles. We turned to God because we knew that we didn't have the answers. We proudly displayed our flag as a symbol of freedom and honor and a united people. The naysayers said our financial systems would never recover, but we proved them wrong. America - wake up! Cast your vote for the cause of liberty and justice for all. God grant us the wisdom to choose wisely.
