Testimony: Email says, ‘House to gift’… “Yeah, right!”

30 Nov

(A testimony from friends)

We weren’t even looking for a house, when out of the blue an email arrived with the subject line that read, ‘House to Gift’.  We chuckled and thought, “Yeah, right!”  After reading and re-reading the email we decided to inquire as to why and how the sender even knew about us. 

The owner, a doctor, had relocated to another city and had this house for sale for two years without success.  One day at church he was lamenting to someone that he wished it could be used for ministry.  They responded by asking if he had ever heard of the ServantCARE network ministry.  He had not.  They gave him a list of five ministries who offered ministry to missionaries and he sent the same email to all five.  Only two responded and came to see the house.  The other ministry recognized that it was a better fit for us and declined the offer.  After several months of prayer we finally accepted his offer. 

The 6,000 sq ft home includes five bedrooms, 3 ½ baths and a 1000 sq ft detached garage… so it would require quite an undertaking to update and furnish.  We wanted to be sure it was a God assignment and not just a great offer.  Indeed, it was both!  Not only did the seller donate the home to the ServantCARE, but he paid all the closing costs and the first year’s insurance.  Since then, God has supernaturally provided for the updating and furnishing of the home in the most incredible ways.

God named the home ‘The Dwelling Place’ and told us that this home was to be available for the Body of Christ to come away to spend time with Him… or for personal/couples ministry.  We’re located at the foot of the bluffs in the small riverside village of Cassville, WI, just three blocks from the Mississippi River.  All are invited.

What if: The worms already ate ’em?

25 Nov

Let’s start with a couple familiar verses.

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. – I Thess 4:16

Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.  For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. – I Cor 15:51-52

8afdc79275730d9814b26befd4be5c17These are the primary Scriptures used to communicate an event called, the resurrection from the dead.  Generally, we’ve interpreted these Scriptures to mean that there is going to be an upheaval of tons of dirt as bodies come back to life and suddenly erupt up out of the ground.  We experience some of our strongest religious sentimentalities as we rally around artists’ depictions of this epic event.

But let’s dissect this concept and see if this picture still stands.

Fact: Since Adam, all people except two, have died… and after death all of the bodies decomposed back into their original state – from dust to dust (Gen 3:19; Eccl 3:20; including verses in Job, Psalms and Isaiah).

Fact: Before caskets and vaults became popular in the middle 1800s, most people were buried about 3 feet under the ground.  This allowed nature to re-purpose all the elemental components of the body.  Those elements were assimilated back into the soil or surrounding matter (ocean, air, etc).  The human body, which is mostly water (65%), dissipates into the air or the earth… and the remaining 50 elements (35%) which are minerals and some inert elements, are assimilated into the cyclical life processes of nature.

Question 1:  Where are the remains of the bodies that died 200 years ago? 4000 years ago?  Without a doubt, most or all of the elements of that body are not in their original resting place, due to: worms, birds, trees, flowers, grass, funeral pyres, burned at the stake, eaten by animals, cremation, burial at sea, promession, cryopreservation, etc.  Suffice it to say that most, or all, of that body is not where it was last laid to rest.  And it would also be fair to say that most… or all, of the DNA is gone, too. 

Question 2:  So if the dead in Christ are to resurrect, where will they resurrect from, if there are no body parts or residual DNA, in that location?

Some people hold the view that some part of the person’s DNA is still there in the ground, then God miraculously reconstructs the body from that miniscule DNA.  But if we hold to that view, we’re still saying that most of what happens is an outstanding miracle.  And if it’s a miracle, why do we even need a ‘seed’ portion of DNA for the miracle to happen?

Question 3:  Is the picture of dead people coming out of the ground an accurate concept?  What if we don’t actually resurrect out of the dirt?

So let’s take a look at the “glorified body”.  We don’t know exactly what it means, what it looks like or the physical properties of it.  But it is most certainly not the same substance as our bodies… they’re “glorified”.

… who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. – Phil 3:21

So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable.  It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. 44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. – I Cor 15:42-44

Jesus, and maybe Moses and Elijah on the Mt of Transfiguration, are the only ones we know who have manifested in a glorified body.  And Jesus’ body could do things our bodies can’t.  It could eat… or not.   It was ethereal enough to pass through walls… or solid enough for Thomas to put his hand in Jesus’ scars.  It was able to manifest in a “different form” (Mark 16:12) to the two men on their way to Emmaus.

Question 4:  Does God need a whole body… or even particles of DNA for a resurrection and glorified body?  Maybe resurrection has more to do with God creating a glorified body for our spirit man to live in for eternity, than it does with trying to reconstruct what used to be our temporary ‘tent’ that housed our soul and spirit man for those few years on earth.  He’s creating a facility for our spirit man that has physical properties which surpass, even our wildest creative imagination.

And if it’s too much to think that God doesn’t need at least some physical DNA to create a glorified body, then where do angel appearances come from… they never had a pre-existent physical body on this earth!   And where did the “sons of God” get a substantive body sufficient to co-habit with the “daughters of men” in order to procreate Nephilim on the earth (Gen 6:4)?  Those “sons of God” never had human bodies before their ‘appearance’ upon the earth, but somehow were able to manifest in physical form.

What if coming out of the ground is just a man-thought… a concept that we’ve invented to try to make some verses fit within our ‘known world’?  Doesn’t it sound at least a little like a man-thought?  In fact, it sounds a lot like how we made up our now fast fading rapture theory that involves blue skies and puffy clouds – which BTW was only invented back in the 1800s.  What if God has a completely different idea about resurrection from the dead?  Could we be OK with that?  If He does have a different plan, then it would just be another tribute to God’s miraculous and mysterious ability to do the impossible without having to be fully understood by our brains?

What if the historical timing of this whole concept and the meaning of these metaphors is completely different than our modern pulpit-speak?  Selah!is-the-pretrib-rapture-of-the-church-sound-bible-doctrine-21330716

So what if we just let the happy worms eat their fill of dead men’s carcasses?  And what if the happy fat worms (and happy birds who ate the happy fat worms) don’t have to explode to let out all of the dead men’s DNA when it comes resurrection time?

Conclusion: I say, “God bless the worms!”

Reblog: You are NOT a “caterpillar” saved by grace!

7 Nov

My friend Mel Wild presents it so profoundly simple, that I just had to reblog this post. You’re gonna like this!

In My Father's House

monarch_butterflyYou are not a “caterpillar” saved by grace; you are a new creation…a “butterfly” in Christ!

It’s popular in evangelical Christianity to call ourselves “sinners saved by grace.” While we may still commit sins, the Bible only identifies us as “saints.”

Testimony:  My God will supply all my needs

6 Nov

(A testimony from a friend.)craxt2swwaahmq3

A few months ago, I was pondering visiting my father in Indonesia.  I knew I didn’t have enough money to do this, so it would have to be God for it to happen.  As I was talking about it with a friend, he spontaneously gave me a $1000 check toward purchasing tickets.

Then more recently, my father had a stroke and I felt more urgency to visit him soon.  A person came up to me and said, here’s my credit card numbers to use to purchase all the tickets for yourself, your wife and your son!

Looks like we’re going!!!

My boss let me off work for our 10-12 day trip.  But then he said, “When you come back, we’re going to give you a $2/hr raise.”

I just love God’s ways.  He makes all things possible.

Proclamation prayer… it’s what Kingdom saints do

6 Nov

By now, you know that this is a big topic for me.  And yes, I know this isn’t a single-sided subject… but for so long it’s been a lopsided subject… and on the wrong side, in my opinion.  So I will spend almost no time in validating the posture of petition or supplication prayers… even though they have a vital and powerful place in the lives of the believer… and even the sinner.  (It’s probably the only prayer posture for the pre-Christian, since they haven’t enjoyed sonship favor with the Father, yet.)  In actual fact, petition prayer has been our almost singular prayer posture for all of human history.  We’ve had such a low estimation and view of ourselves that we haven’t allowed ourselves to explore more kingly forms of prayer.

Now if we’re a “kingdom of priests and kings”… if we’re a “royal priesthood and holy nation”… and if “all authority has been given into our hands”, then shouldn’t we dispense with the begging and petition, especially since His Word tells us what He wants us to do.  Think: If we’re an ambassador or emissary, we have been given an assignment, parameters and authority to make decisions, proclaim edicts, and adjudicate for our king.  If we don’t understand and use our authority, we’ll probably be brought back home to ‘sit under his table’ for a while until we become more clear in our relationship with the king and the role as a ‘sent one’.

I may be ‘pushing’ this point a little harder than I should, but we are SO steeped in a beggar and ‘distance’ (from God) mentality… and we’re SOooo far from ‘owning’ and living in a royal/kingly mentality… that we need a strong push to get our minds readjusted… and thus, our realities transformed.

“Be ye transformed by the renewing of your minds.” – Rms 12:2

So, in looking at the Bible we find that there are many scriptures in the New Testament… even post-cross, that have the petition aspect to prayer, such as:

“For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;” – Col 1:9

Asking is still a legitimate form of praying in my ‘world’, especially if I don’t know the mind of God.  If I don’t know the mind of God, then I must ask Him what His will is.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” – Jms 1:5

Jesus proved this in the Garden when He asked the Father.

“My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me.  Yet not as I will, but as you will.” – Matt 26:39

There are quite a few instances where Jesus prayed ‘asking’ type prayers.  Sometimes it’s obvious He was imploring for the Father’s mind and will.  But then there are times when Jesus prayed, what I call, ‘a people type prayer’.  What a strange revelation to find that Jesus prayed prayers beneath His ability and status.  If we just think about it, His whole life here on earth was beneath His status as the only begotten Speople-type-prayeron of God.  But rarely do we get to hear His inner talk about how He juggled His ‘God-ness’ against the people’s weak and ‘fallen’ spirituality.  Take a look at this stunning insight.

“Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.  I knew that You always hear Me, but I say this for the benefit of the people standing here, so they may believe that You sent Me.”” – John 11:41-42

Look at the last sentence!  He says that He only prayed the first part for the sake of the people.  He knew he had to pray a somewhat familiar religious sounding prayer or they wouldn’t be able to get ‘on-page’ with Him.  In the people’s minds, addressing God as Father certainly stretched them… but thankijesus-type-prayerng God, was a familiar sounding religious prayer.  So now it was safe and easy for them to ‘buy-in’… and Jesus could get on with ‘a Jesus type prayer’:

“After Jesus had said this, He called out in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth.”…” – John 11:43

Wow!  Is it possible that Jesus and other NT writers sometimes prayed prayers that were more ‘palatable’ to their audience, even though they were capable of, and it would have been more appropriate, to pray kingly/declarative prayers?  Well, at least on this occasion, Jesus did.  Here is another example where Paul speaks in “human terms” just so that he can convey his insight to the Romans.

“I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations.” – Rms 6:19 ESV

God starts out with what we can relate to and believe… until we can handle His fuller revelations.  Declarative prayers are almost unheard of up to this point in Scripture… but Jesus is employing all methods possible to shift the atmosphere for those around him.

So I am taken with this declarative and imperative form of prayer.  And we find many instances of it in the New Testament.

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” – I Thess 1:1

And then we find that even in some of the middle-of-the-road word choices like, “may God do such-and-such…” the literal translation makes it more imperative than just a simple ‘humble’ petition.  For example:

“Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus clear the way for us to come to you… “ – I Thess 3:11-13; 5:23

At first glance, it seems to sounds like a petition type prayer, but Youngs Literal Translation delivers it more imperatively:

“And our God and Father Himself, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you,” – (Youngs Literal Trans)

A more ‘confident knowing’ comes through in the literal translation.  Paul is prophesying God’s will into his future.  Here are more examples of clear emphatic declaration type utterances (which I believe are the more appropriate prayers for Kingdom saints).

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.” – I Thess 5:28
“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.” – Phil 4:23

We even have an instance of declarative truth/prayer by an angel:

“But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to condemn him for slander but said, “The Lord rebuke you!”” – Jude 1:9

As we said, Jesus was shifting the spiritual atmosphere between people’s ears – giving them a ‘new mind’.  So let’s look at some of the imperative/declarative prayers of Jesus

Be healed!” – Matt 8:3
Stretch out your hand.” – Matt 12:13
Peace, be still.” – Mk 4:39
Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” – Lk 5:34
“Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.” – Lk 7:11-15
“Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” – Lk 8:50
Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” – Lk 10:52
Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” – Lk 18:42
Rise and go; your faith has made you well.” – Lk 17:14-19
Get up, pick up your mat, and walk.” – John 5:7
Lazarus, come forth” – John 11:43

We don’t hear a wimpy, “If it be Thy will, O Lord” type prayer here.  Jesus was confident and assertive with His prayers.  And He teaches us to do the same thing.

“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed….” – Mk 11:23

Praying for the sick is certainly scriptural (James 5: 14-15), especially for those in the church, but why don’t the Gospels and Acts give us precedent for petition prayers for healing?  What does this tell us?  I think that Jesus thinks we have more authority than we think we do.  This is made clear when He confers upon the 72, “all authority over the enemy”.

“I give to you the authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and on all the power of the enemy, and nothing by any means shall hurt you;” – Lk 10:19

Then Jesus commands us to carry an authoritative posture as we “go”:

“And He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” – Lk 9:1-2

“As you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, and cast out demons.  Freely you have received, freely give – Matt 10:7-8

The assumed subject in each of these commands is “You”(You) heal, (You) cleanse, (You) raise, (You) cast out….   He freely gave us this authority, now we are to freely administer it.

“(You) Heal the sick who are there and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you'” – Lk 10:9

In these instances we don’t hear Jesus say, “Petition Heaven until Father has a favorable mindset to heal.”  Rather, Jesus sees us as being duly deputized to carry and freely disseminate the Kingdom everywhere we go.

The disciples ‘got it’ and were ecstatic to find that what Jesus said, was really true.  They could hardly believe it!

“The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in Your name.”  So He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” – Lk 10:17-18

I believe that the “falling of Satan” was mostly ‘between the ears’ of the 72.  They were “renewed in the spirit of their minds” (Eph 4:23).  They’re unbelief was demolished and their faith was established.  God’s word and His intentions were now rightfully enthroned upon their minds.  Satan’s throne of rulership in their minds had crumbled.  The 72 had dared to believe Jesus and found His words to be true.

Further, most people erroneously believe that Jesus wants us to assume the Luke 18:1-6 widowly posture of desperate imploring.  But Jesus contrasts that faithless posture with verse 8, “Will I find faith when I return?”  He hopes we see ourselves for who we really are.

The disciples got it.  And it didn’t stop with the Gospels… Peter is still practicing this kingly prayer/declaration posture in the Early Church.

“In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” – Acts 3:6
“Tabitha, arise.” – Acts 9:40

Now, let’s take a look at Isa 61 for a moment.  Everyone, including Jesus, believes that this passage refers to His coming to earth and administering each of these powerful proclamations in His life and ministry here on earth.

“Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down.  The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him.  He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” – Lk 4:16-30

Of course, these powerful proclamations seem fitting for the Son of God.  It’s easy to believe that the Son of God can do these things.  Let’s list some of them:

“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to:

1.    proclaim good news to the poor
2.   bind up the brokenhearted,
3.   proclaim freedom for the captives
4.   release from darkness for the prisoners,
5.    proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
6.    comfort all who mourn,
7.    provide for those who grieve in Zion—
8.   bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
9.    the oil of joy instead of mourning,
10.  a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.” – Isa 61:1-3

Wow, that is power-packed!!  Did you notice that we don’t read of the necessity of preliminary petitioning of Father God to see if this is the right thing to do?  So that’s exactly what Jesus did… release the Kingdom of God everywhere He went.  The spoken Word of God is the permission and empowerment to fulfill each proclamation.  That’s what rhema does… “empowerment accompanies revelation”.  But it doesn’t stop there, Jesus said,

“Greater works than these shall you do” – John 14:12

And John said that we qualify to do the Jesus-stuff,

“…as He is, so also are we in this world.” – I John 4:17

And that’s just the start of substantiating the next level of this stunning reality.  Through Jesus, this powerful authority and influence now applies to us.  Now, all these powerful proclamations are ours to embrace and activate in!!!

As I said earlier, never once is there an instruction to petition the Father to see if HE would do this ‘heavy-lifting’ for us.  No!  He admonishes US to believe that this is the normal daily fare of Kingdom saints.

I believe that discovering the richness of what it means to truly be a son (versus a “wretch like me”) and discovering the magnitude of Father’s awesome intention “toward us who believe” (Eph 1:19), will affect a radical change in our inner reality and self-talk… and will necessitate a dramatic change in our conversation and prayer posture.  We will begin to think, speak, pray and prophesy more like this:

From the finished work of the Cross
From Heaven into earthly situations versus from earth supplicating Heaven
From victory versus for victory

If we are to enter a more Kingdom minded era equipped for the times, I believe these golden revelations will be required in order to empower us to fulfill Kingdom realities (Dan 7:27; Rms 5:17; etc).  Instead of a consciousness of our sin dominating our personal ‘universe’, we will be more conscious of our righteousness (II Cor 5:21; Rms 5:1) and live by it, be set free by it and be empowered by it!

In closing, here’s a follow up on Isa 61.  This is what happens to those who embrace and practice these Isa 61 proclamations:

3 They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.
4 They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations
5 Strangers will shepherd your flocks; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.
6 And you will be called priests of the Lord, you will be named ministers of our God.
You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast.
7 Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion,
and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.
8 “For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing.
In my faithfulness I will reward my people and make an everlasting covenant with them.
9 Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples.
All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the Lord has blessed.”
10 I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.

Man-O-man!!!  That truly sounds like Good News!  So if this is available for me, then I set myself to do violence (Matt 11:12) against unbelief and lesser mindsets until I “apprehend that for which I was apprehended” (Phil 3:12)… and possess the Kingdom of God as fully mine… and give it away.

All in favor say, “Aye”!

DPM Update – 2016 November

4 Nov

Dear Friends

Grbabies on the way
We found out recently that Markus & Allison… and John & Cheryl are both having sons.  More boys, YAY!  Long live the Hendrickson name!  :-)  So in January, we’ll have a total of seven grand-children, all four years old and under.  Wow!!  Now that’s what I’m talking about. p-1824-636_grandkids

Crazy Testimony!!
John and Cheryl just had an amazing God-thing happen in their lives.  They now own and live in a house about 1 block from us.  You will love reading about this crazy cool God-story (click here).

Click here for more short and encouraging testimonies.

Real-time healing
This audio recording is of a man making a public speech at the very moment he was healed of a voice debilitation.  He had sought medical help for years to no avail.  Go to about [4:30] in this audio clip to begin… and somewhere around [6:30] the healing occurs.  The theology expressed is questionable, but our good God just loves to show off (Click here).

Recent ministry trips
In October I was asked to co-speak with Ray Hughes at Culture Changers Conference in Joplin, MO.  He’s a blast and the presence worship was great.

Several weeks ago, Debbie and I made an 11-day ‘exploratory’ trip to visit friends in Evergreen, Colorado Springs, Ft Collins and Parker, Colorado and Laramie, Wyoming.  Of course it was great to connect on their turf!!!  But to also connect with their friends, groups and churches, just made it that much better.  End result is, we’re confident we’ll be going back to do more of the God-stuff with our friends.

An unexpected joy was meeting my distant relative Ellen Buck, in Ft Collins and enjoying God together in one of the meetings.

Last week, Debbie and I spent 4 days in Chicago at the Face to Face HUB conference.  Always fresh and free… a little ‘shake and bake’ and SO MUCH FUN.  We helped lead worship times and prayer times.

Next weekend I’m back in SW Wisconsin for a men’s retreat.  Everyone needs a get-away like this… and God always does something very special.

The following week, it’ll be a blast joining our family and extended family in Branson for a 5-day reunion. 

Presidential election
As you know, a most critical election is upon us.  I have no problem saying these two candidates and party platforms are starkly opposite in most every way.  And even though both candidates are flawed, it’s blatantly clear which platform supports our Judeo-Christian heritage.  In a break from my norm, I decided to make postings for one week only, of ‘the way I see it’.  If you’re interested, read my Facebook posts this last week before elections. This election is huge!

Lance Walnau on Trump
Lance is a well-respected man of God and very savvy on the global scene.  This 27 minute video will offer some insights you may not have considered about Donald Trump as a unlikely tool in the hand of God.

He just published a book: “God’s Chaos Candidate: Donald J. Trump and the American Unraveling” by Lance Wallnau.  Read the first chapter of his book for free here.  Or purchase it on Amazon here.

Happy voting!

Our love to each one of you!!!

Politics: My views… for one week…

1 Nov

This election is without a doubt, one of the most critical elections our country has ever experienced.  Each of the contestants will likely seriously determine a widely divergent societal norm for a decade or so.  Because of the seriousness of the imminent election, for ONE (1) WEEK I will be posting some of my PERSONAL political perspectives on my personal Facebook page.  I will not be posting politics on this blog.  You’re invited to follow my FB page.maxresdefault

Note: You may not agree with me.  That’s OK.  Post your opinions on your own FB page.  I have never posted oppositional comments on anyone’s public page… and never intend to.  (Let the reader understand.)  If you don’t like my views then don’t read them… or feel free to ‘unfollow’ or unfriend me.

I will take liberties to delete, block or unfriend oppositional comments!

I understand that my views will not sway those staunchly holding to an opposing view.  But there are many who are undecided and I intend to do what I can to activate them into meaningful votes.

Disclaimer: I may change my views if new information surfaces in the future.

I realize that our nation’s ultimate ‘salvation’ does not rest in the hands of a man or a woman.  It is God who raises up or demotes (Dan 2:21).  But our heart realities (Godly or not) and our actions (or lack of them) strongly set precedent and open ‘doors’ in the natural and the spiritual realms (Prov 14:34).  So, I intend to pray and to vote…and to activate others to do the same.
