So, beginning November 11, there will be an opportunity to learn about the Watchmen prayer movement through a series of webinars, with Remnant Rising as a reference for the course. HONORING MILITARY a small remnant remaining for Awaken the Dawn traveled to the NAVAL ACADEMY, ANAPOLIS, MDwith hearts to pray for the military and delve into its history. Susan remarked, We all felt a new respect for the naval history, and the midshipman now in training. We were sobered by the reality of these young adults willing to place their lives on the line to defend a great country now seriously in need of their skills and abilities. A couple on the team prayed for an injured cadet hobbling down the street struggling to catch up to his fellow classmen. With obvious stress and pain on his face, he looked up with tear filled eyes to say thank you. We were all impacted by the encounter as the compassion of Christ touched us all. GOD HONORED AT SUPREME COURT DEDICATION: The following day our team set out to pray for the Supreme Court. Highlighted in the historic display was a small document. The power of these words spoken over the foundation stone of the Supreme Court building in 1932 can encourage all believers: "It (the supreme court building) will be a monument to Justice; justice which every human being yearns for and which is the right of all; justice upon whose ministrations life, liberty, and the assurance of happiness depend and in whose supremacy the security and welfare of our institutions rest; justice in whose service we are sworn; justice that is the final attribute of God Himself. This will be her temple. Here her shrine will be. Here she shall abide. Year following year, and century following century, ambitions Youth shall look upon this stately building and rejoice that the paths of opportunity are here kept open equally to all. Upon it weak and weary Age shall gaze and be content, for it shall know that the Lord has built this house and that His justice reigns therein." Sue shared, That bit of information was worth the whole trip!
"Then I said to the nobles, the rulers, and the rest of the people, 'The work is great and extensive, and we are separated far from one another on the wall. Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us.'” Nehemiah 4:19-20
