I would drive 19 h again for that!!!
TheCall in Washington DC was an awesome assembly of people who came to pray and fast for our nation, church, government, elections and the future.
It lasted for 12h. It was hot, crowded, dusty and beautiful.
Over 60, 000 people came to glorify God at the feet of the Capitol. Although some names of the people, if announced earlier, would draw the crowds, this was, first of all, a prayer meeting. What stunned me the most was a sober and prayerfull atmosphere surrounding all of the participants of this holy assembly. They came to fast, not to enjoy a festival.
Behind the stage there was a place where we saw a lot of baby shoes tied with laces and notes asking for forgiveness, notes of hope and love, written mostly by the parents of children whom they have aborted earlier in life, and now they miss them in this life.
Jewish blessing at the end, kids dancing ( look for Sophie, Kevin & Teah)
In a few minutes we are leaving for theCall. We will drive for about 20 h. Pray.
I am still alive, still praying and breathing…

invisible wrestling prolongs my destitute
in the land of waiting
wings of oblivious misery
over my crawly prayers
pretend to be crystal independent
give up the ordinary
is your gentle touch enough
to pierce through the elements of my callous imagination
save me from destruction of poetic vanity
wake me up
3 man who fasted 40 days are mentioned in the Bible: Moses, Elijah and Jesus Christ.
Moses, the law giver, was so transformed by God’s presence that his face shone from the glory of God. Elijah, the prophet, the one who heard the voice of God, cured the lepers and raised the dead. Both of them come to converse with Christ, during transfiguration on Mount Tabor, while the surroundings are entangled with the clouds. A momentary foretaste of the future glory.

zdobycz duchowa spiritual gain
łatwa do stracenia jest so easy to loose
pamięć o niej jednak the remembrance of it
drąży w zakamarkach hollows out in the nooks
jestestwa of being
nie pozwala chodzić w zastanej rzeczywistości forbidding to walk in a known reality
kto bowiem raz skosztował because who once tasted
nie zadowoli się ochłapem will not be pleased with the scrap
samej pamięci of a mere remembrance
lecz wyrwie serce swoje but will tore his heart out
zostawi wszystko will leave everything
nie będzie już grzebać umarłych will not bury the dead
lecz popędzi but will rush off
do źródła egzystencji to the source of existence
do sedna sprawy zajrzy will look into the heart of the matter
jak do studni like into the well
i ujrzy oblicze Boga samego to catch a glimpse of God’s countenance
w zwierciadle duszy in the mirror of his soul
stęsknionej za Panem longing for the Lord
tylko ten krzyż plącze się między nogami
only this cross entangled around me
co by tu z nim zrobić
what could I do with it
