"Shoot!" Elisha said "The Lord's arrow of victory!"
You will completely destroy the Arameans" Then he said,
"Take the arrows," and the king took them. Elisha told
him, "Strike the ground." He struck it three times
and stopped. [Elisha] was angry with him and said, "You
should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would
have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will
defeat it only three times" (2 Kg 13:17-19).
The GOP made history Tuesday by retaking the Senate and gaining
five House seats in a mid-term election. A growing army of praying
Christians around the world knows God governed the outcome
of this election (Ps 75:6-7). Pro-life gains in both houses

if any lasting change is to occur. Now is not the time for Christians
to relax. Rather it is time to press in to God all the more.

others to do likewise) if the unholy spiritual powers determined
to destroy our nation are to be defeated.
