"Let everyone who is Godly pray to you while you may be found"  (Psalm 32:6)

Could British Livestock Disease Reach U.S.?


If you do not obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments... Cursed shall be...the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks... Your ox shall be slaughtered before your eyes, but you shall not eat of it... Your sheep... and you shall have no one to rescue them (Dt 28:all, but esp.15, 18, 31).

For Americans, nightly images of tens of thousands of British cattle being slaughtered are just more bad news. But for Britain and its farmers they are an epochal tragedy.

--Three weeks ago, Britain discovered the first case of the foot-and-mouth disease in 20 years among some pigs. It spread at a lightning pace throughout England to cattle, sheep and goats, and shows no sign of let-up. Cases have now been discovered in Ireland, Scotland, France, the former Soviet State of Kyrgyzstan, Argentina and Mongolia.

--European nations have slaughtered thousands of imported British livestock in a feverish effort to prevent further spread. "Mad Cow" disease, which broke out in Great Britain in 1996, cost the nation $6 billion, required the slaughter 4 million cattle, and infected 90 humans (foot-and-mouth disease does not infect people).

--The United States has banned the importation of British and European meat products, but the highly infectious disease could enter our country on shoes and clothing of travelers.

Great Britain has been ignoring the Creator and His Laws for many years now. God's curses are upon every nation that ignores Him and His commandments. Thank God, we have a new President. But only if God's people wholeheartedly live 2 Chronicles 7:14 and God sends history making revival in the Church will our land find righteousness and healing. Until then, God's increasing judgments will impact all of us.

Please Join Us in Agreeing Prayer:

-Heavenly Father, GRANT CLEMENCY! We deserve Your Judgments. Yet, we ask You to GRANT REPENTANCE to Your people. Let the Church in America RETURN TO YOU & ARISE TO BE THE CHURCH to our dying nation (Ex 34:6-9; 2 Chr 7:14).
-Have mercy upon our friends in Great Britain. Help them to contain this terrible livestock disease. Supernaturally guard our borders. Pass over our land. May Your judgments cause men to cry out to You, and to find You. Send Revival. In Jesus' Name, Amen (Is 26:9-10; Jer 29:13; Jonah 4:11; Ps 127:1).
