Pray For Donald Trump

The Meltdown Is Coming!

People have been using the word meltdown, as it seems, almost casually as it relates to Donald Trump. If the endless tweets and what looks like tantrums, complaints, and attacks on individuals and the media are the things they refer to as a meltdown, then there is more in store. The real meltdown is coming.

Can Prayer Change Things?
Of course it can. Christians understand that speaking to God about a situation can change the outcome of that situation. While you do not necessarily need the permission of anybody to pray for them, at least in their absence, the perceived expectation of the person to be prayed for matters. While Mr. Trump is always ready to go on the attack on twitter with the biting words, the insults, and the name calling, there is a big problem and it is not going away. Twitter is just one way to respond. There are other ways. How about a reflection on what the real problem is and how to bring a resolution. There is no one person who can take on everybody and succeed unless that one man is God.

The Real Problems Are Coming
And when they shall surface, twitter will not be enough. It will be quite completely a collapse of the fort. So brace yourself  for the fall. But equip yourself with the truth because you will need plenty of it.
"Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night'" --Psalm 1:1-2

"For by strength alone shall no man prevail." --1 Samuel 2:9
