Prayer and Slaves

Vision within a Dream: Saturday, August, 17, 2002
The dream opened up before me with simultaneously two visions running parallel together with an ocean between them.
Vision on the left side:

I was positioned above this scene looking down upon a whole assembly of leaders who were standing and bowing in prayer. At the head of this group was the leader. He was in deep prayer before God. In front of them on a foothill was the flag of the United States of America. It was lying flat on the lower foothills with a mountain behind them. The flag at times looked like the shape of America although it was still a flag. I heard the leader who was alone on his knees weeping with his hands in the air saying, "O God, hear our prayer. We have not placed our flag as an icon before you. Please be with us O Lord, for we are about to go to war. Forgive us O Lord. Be with us and protect our country. We have assembled before you to ask you to lead us in victory. We are here to ask your forgiveness for we have sinned against you. For what we are about to do, it could be the end of us as a nation." At these words, he laid flat to the ground, buried his face in the dirt, and wept bitterly. I could feel his heart breaking at his own words and pleading with God for his country. The flag seemed to ripple at each word the President spoke.

I heard each leader whom I knew was the head of his Department in the government be in agreement with the President. The General of the Army was with them and was very brave, weeping as he spoke these words: "God protect these men for I am sending them into a battle that could be the end. Lord, I have prepared my heart before you to search me and to show me the battle that lies before this country. Let us not perish, but be in victory. We are defending our country, but we are also defending you O Lord." The President and the military leader rose and started singing a Christian song. The song was 'The Battle Hymn of the Republic.' All the men assembled were weeping and their voices began rising in unison as they sang before God. They looked like a tattered group of men but had victory in their eyes.
"God protect these men for I am sending them into a battle that could be the end. "
Vision on the right
I saw someone that looked like my prayer partner, Lee, sitting in a rocker. I saw someone that looked like my prayer partner, Lee, sitting in a rocker. These words were spoken. "Jeannette, come here; I have something to tell you." I came closer and these strange words were spoken. "Slaves who have bastards become slave of the slaves" came forth. A lineage sheet emerged and a mark was made by each different name upon this sheet of paper. Upon reading the lineage sheet, some names were skipped over. I looked in bewilderment to the choice of words, and stood dumbfounded and speechless at the reference to slaves.

Please pray for United States of America

The Prayer at Valley Forge by Arnold Friberg is one of the best known paintings of the American Revolution. It depicts George Washington at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania in prayer on his knees beside his horse Nelson at the Continental Army's encampment, during the terrible winter of 1777-1778.
