I Corinthians 2:9-10 “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”

Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

Philippians 3:20-21 “For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself.”

Psalm 40:1 “I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.”

This past weekend was the seventh anniversary of Supreme Prayer, which started on February 13, 2016 on the day that Justice Antonin Scalia died. On that Saturday seven years ago, it was a bitterly cold evening that revealed the potential fragility of our balanced system of government. Those prayer warriors huddled around one another, and lifted up our nation’s well-being to the Lord. Then, they came back the next weekend, and the next weekend, and the next. Not knowing who would show up and what God would do, they kept coming back and lifting up their petitions unto the Lord with faith and importunity.

In the intervening years, God has done more than eye could see or ear could hear. He shaped and molded our nation’s structure to protect us and to preserve our future.

Last Saturday was a wonderful celebration of God’s faithfulness through this ministry. Those who were there seven years ago gave testimony and offered praise. And, the evening provided a stark contrast with the ways of the world.

It was a noisy night, with protestors for freedom in Iran holding a rally on First Street NE between the U.S. Capitol and the Supreme Court. Their chanting and singing was designed to bring attention to their cause. They wanted the public and the U.S. Congress to hear their cries.

Nearby, our group of forty or so met. Our activities were designed to bring attention to our cause, but the audience was far different from the protestors. We wanted the Lord alone to hear our cries.

For the last seven years, He has! This Saturday, we will meet again, and will patiently and faithfully cry out to the Lord.
