…Had not Moses His chosen one stood before Him in the breach… Psalm 106:23 (NKJV)
When I was a little girl, my parents took my siblings and me to the Grand Canyon. I remember my mom holding our shirt collars as we looked over the edge into the great abyss. Then I grew up to be a mom and did the same thing for our children. Any time we went to a National Park with deep gorges, I held shirt collars to prevent my children from plummeting into the canyon depths.
Friends, our country needs moms to hold shirt collars again! We need you to pray like never before for your children and for this great nation. Don’t let go! Don’t let us fall into the depths! Don’t lose the faith! Believe with all your heart that God will save this great land. Hold those shirt collars!
Did you know Moses did the same thing for God’s children, the Israelites? While Moses was on the mountain receiving the Ten Commandments from God, the people were down below making a golden calf. God wanted to wipe them all out and make a new people from Moses. But Moses stood in the breach and pleaded with the Lord on their behalf. And God heard their prayers! God will hear your prayers, too, dear friend. Here are some verses you can pray from Psalm 106 today…

Today’s TEA CUPP: Dear TEA Friend, You have such an important job to do! Just as Moses stood in the breach to save the children of Israel, we must stand in the breach to save the United States of America. Keep praying for our nation, dear prayer warriors. Keep interceding on behalf of babies, our President, and anything else the Holy Spirit puts upon your heart.
And an extra prayer for the USA:
That I may see the benefit of Your chosen ones,
That I may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation,
That I may glory with Your inheritance. Psalm 106:5 (NKJV)
