The woman was old, and ragged, and gray,
And bent with the chill of the winter’s day;
The street was wet with a recent snow,
And the woman’s feet were aged and slow.
She stood at the crossing and waited long,
Alone, uncared for, amid the throng
Of human beings who passed her by,
Nor heeded the glance of her anxious eye.
Down the street, with laughter and shout,
Glad in the freedom of “school let out,”
Came the boys like a flock of sheep,
Hailing the snow piled white and deep.
Past the woman so old and gray
Hastened the children on their way,
Nor offered a helping hand to her –
So meek, so timid, afraid to stir
Lest the carriage wheels or the horses’ feet
Should crowd her down in the slippery street.
At last came one of the merry troop –
The most cheerful laddie of all the group;
He paused beside her and whispered low,
“I’ll help you across if you wish to go.”
Her aged hand on his strong young arm
She placed, and so, without hurt or harm,
He guided the trembling feet along,
Proud that his own were firm and strong.
Then back again to his friends he went,
His young heart happy and well content.
“She’s somebody’s mother, boys, you know,
For all she’s aged and poor and slow;
And I hope some fellow will lend a hand
To help my mother, you understand,
If ever she’s poor and old and gray,
When her own dear boy is far away.”
And “somebody’s mother” bowed low her head
In her home that night and the prayer she said
Was, “God, be kind to the noble boy
Who is somebody’s son and pride and joy!”
By the Grace of God, go we.

America experienced a First Great Awakening in the 1730’s and 1740’s, which rocked the original thirteen colonies with the power and authority of God. The Biblical truth of this First Great Awakening created the governmental structure, Constitution and Bill of Rights that birthed the United States of America.
America is presently on the path to experience an economic crisis more significant than the Great Depression of 1929-1939. Is it possible that God has His own indestructible economic plan, in the manner of Joseph and Daniel, for His people? Who will be the people of God that have prepared themselves for a miraculous wealth transfer? What do you need to do now, to be one of them?
What is the ambitious planned surprise in this upcoming Presidential election and how can America be put on the right course despite the hidden agendas of a secretive elite? Does God have an even greater concealed plan for America in the last days that can only be unlocked by the power of revival?
The years 2016-2017 are the United States most critical years in America’s history. America will either move quickly into a totalitarian-style state or experience a Third Great Awakening. Are we waiting on God or is God waiting on us to release a powerful Third Great Awakening upon America, which will unleash His angelic armies and the chariots of fire against the devilish fallen angels?
The prophet Daniel confronted territorial spirits such as the Prince of Persia and the Prince of Greece who ruled over the Middle East. Can a “remnant” of God’s people confront the territorial spirits ruling over America, Europe, the Middle East, and the whole earth? How will praying for the peace of Jerusalem release the angels, Michael and Gabriel, to alter the possibility of World War III, the future of America and the war on terrorism?
God is calling you now to learn how to think with the mind of Christ and release the power and wisdom of God to overcome your problems and the problems facing our nations. Jesus Christ said, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” The current mindset of “fatalism” and “defeat” that exists in the Body of Christ is the result of Luciferian programming and is preventing God’s people from fulfilling their God given destiny. When you learn to ‘own the truth’ that “Nothing is impossible with God,” you will develop an authentic and powerful faith in God, which is what He has called us all to have, especially for such a time as this.
By the Grace of God, go we.
