Thursday 1/7/2021 Election Update
News & Info from Randy McLendon
NOTE: I am going to put each update at the top of previous updates.
Here I stand...

Because you have let me send e-mails to you with my thoughts, information and prayer strategy, I feel a responsibility to you to let you know what is going on in my mind today. So here goes...

I would be lying to you if I were to say I am not disappointed. While I had put a lot of hope in Mike Pence sending the Electoral Votes back to the seven contested states for clarification, I always had to remind myself and you that we were not putting our faith in the outcome or response of any one event or action or man. Our faith is always focused on God, His character, His plan and His Word.

Today I am reminding myself (and you) that the darkest day in history was Crucifixion Friday, when Jesus died and was placed in the grave. In the eyes of all of His followers all hope was lost. Their dreams of His Kingdom coming were all dashed and they ran in fear of their own lives. Even though He had told them of His resurrection after three days, they had no ability to really understand what that meant. Such a thing happening was not even a remote wish in their minds. In Scripture we can see that often what was "meant" was not "understood" until looking back after the fact. I believe we will find that true again.

I am reminding myself today that while man thought all hope was lost, Jesus was actually doing battle in hell to defeat death and Satan. His resurrection was "proof" of His victory - and our victory with Him. I have been asking Him today to train my hands for war so that I can be as effective in my spiritual warfare battles as He was in His. And when He fulfilled His promise in resurrection, it still didn't look like anything they could have imagined. He was neither "flesh and blood" man or ephemeral spirit. He could appear and disappear at will, but Thomas could put his hand into His wounds and He could eat a meal with them and then rise in the clouds until He returns again. God's answers are always fuller, more complete, more powerful and grander than imagined. So let's don't let our minds define what victory is to look like. If we do, then we can be assured of a surprise.

We cannot quit. This battle is too important for our Nation and God's kingdom and for all nations around the world - all for whom Christ died. Here in America, the absolute importance of the right to life, freedom from tyranny and freedom to worship are our immediate and most visible needs and our goal is to see the kingdom of God established in every nation and in every heart. God's kingdom, as scripture states, is seen in righteousness, peace and joy being found in every heart, every family, every city and every nation.

Back to yesterday for a moment... we got to see once again that most politicians are not about righteousness, but self-serving positioning. As a prime example, Lindsey Graham again showed he is neither honorable, conservative nor loyal. He is a self-serving politician who goes whichever way the wind blows. Washington is filled with such people. The fraud is being exposed ever more completely.

Also, I would not be surprised to find that it was Antifa, wolves in sheep's clothing, who started the violence in and around the breaching of the capitol and doing so to make Trump's "Deplorables" and him look bad. Such destruction has been their modus-operandi across the nation. On the other hand, how many hundreds of thousands of people have attended Trump rallies all across the nation and multiple times in Washington - all at Trump's invitation - and with NO violence, NO destruction, NO trouble (except from Antifa out on the fringes and later in the day).

Oh - one more thing: twice yesterday, once in an in-person interview with a reporter and then later when I turned on the radio and heard a different reporter talking about yesterday's events, both said there is no evidence of fraud, no evidence has been presented. They both said every court has turned down the legal challenges saying there is no proof. The reporter that interviewed me was a very nice lady who was obviously interested in what I had to say, but she had absolutely never heard any of the evidence that I shared with her. She asked where she could find that evidence. The main stream media and social media has so blocked the publication of the proof that a lot of people who only get their news in the traditional way have absolutely no idea about the proof. So in case you want to have an easy way to showcase some of the proof, check out these links as a place to start:

More later. Please stay in touch. I do best with texts to 941-504-5675 and e-mails at [email protected].

We will meet for prayer Sunday evening January 10 at 5pm at the gazebo at Centennial Park in Venice.

We will have our 2nd Tuesday of the month meeting at 6:30pm (January 12) at the Englewood Event Center.
We are going to have a day of intercession at the Englewood Event Center on Wednesday, January 6 - THE day when the joint session of Congress meets to have the President of the Senate/Vice-President Mike Pence open the Electoral College results followed by what we know will be objections, debates and ... who knows what! However, we still stand firm in our resolve and faith that God is going to fulfill His Word and save our Nation.

On Wednesday, we will fervently pray into this. I will open the Event Center about 8:00am. Congress will convene at 1:00pm. We will be following the rally and the news so that we can all pray into what is happening real time, binding and loosing as the Spirit leads. Bring blankets or pillows for your comfort. Feel free to bring snacks or drinks and, of course, Abbie's Donuts is right next door. You can come and go as you feel led and we will stay until we believe we are finished.

Here is a message from Tim Sheets this past Sunday that shares some prophetic insights that we can pray into: click here to hear Tim.

Right Side Broadcasting will be live-streaming President Trump's rally in Dalton, GA today at 3:00. Click here for a link to that rally.

Pray for the Senate race in Georgia. We need to have a strong prayer push today and tomorrow to secure this election for Purdue and Loeffler.


The Englewood Event Center is located at 3069 S. McCall Road in Englewood. Our thanks to Mike and Carolyn Thompson for making the Event Center available for us to use for prayer. Blessings on them and may God bless America.

I got an e-mail yesterday about an upcoming trip to D.C. on January 6 sponsored by Women4Trump Florida. This is very time sensitive, so you must act TODAY if you want to join the trip. Click on the picture below or here for more information about the trip AND to send a message to congress. To sign up for the trip, click here.
Concerning prayer locally, WE WILL NOT meet tonight (Tuesday, December 29) at the Event Center in Englewood. There is such a great need for prayer that we must pray non-stop during this next week. As today's GiveHim15 prayer notes, this week and next will probably be the most important and critical times in the life of our nation and deserve our constant prayer.

We will have prayer at the Venice Gazebo on Sunday evening January 3 at 5PM. I have to make a quick trip to Georgia over the weekend, but will be back by prayer time. Prayer on Tuesday January 5 is still up in the air, but most probably not having it.

On THE most important day, June 6, next Wednesday, I will open the Englewood Event Center for a day of Intercession. This will not be our "typical" time of sitting in a prayer circle, each offer up prayer as we feel led.

Instead, bring your pillow and blanket and prepare to just lay before the LORD. We will intercede as He leads during the day. I will try to have a news source available to us so that we know what is going on in the House and Senate and will know how to pray and who to pray for at any given time. We will listen to the Spirit as He leads us in our prayer that day. We will uphold those who need to be upheld and bind those that need to be bound. We know and stand firm on what God's outcome is to be, but as Intercessors, we will stand in agreement with God's purposes and "pull the answers through" and "strengthen the hands" of those who are in the heat of the battle.

You can come and go as you feel led. I will open up around 8am or so and will stay until we feel it is finished. This may be a new dimension of prayer than you are used to. We are going to be free to pray and worship, even in groanings too deep for words. We will listen for His specific instructions for intercession during the day. To God be the Glory.

Between now and then, pray for the election in Georgia and pray for all those involved in this spiritual warfare for our nation.

Blessings to you all. May we experience His Great Grace in 2021.

The prayer from December 23, 2020

As we enter these two weeks prior to the joint meeting of the House and Senate with Vice-President and Senate President Mike Pence to count Electoral Votes, I would like to suggest some strategies for our prayers.

Go to the GiveHim15 app on your phone or go to the facebook page for Dutch Sheets and follow along with multiplied thousands of others who are agreeing in prayer with Dutch. (I open my phone app and at the same time open his facebook page so that I can both watch/listen to him lead the prayer while I simultaneously read along with my phone app.)

Proverbs 25:26 - "Like a trampled spring and a polluted well is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked." (NASB) God never wants a righteous man to yield to wickedness. To do so causes the man, and by extension, all he touches or oversees to become corrupt and polluted. Pray that ALL in authority - House members and Senators both state and federal, all judges, the President and all with executive positions - would not bend to wickedness, fraud, corruption or injustice, but stand firm for righteousness. Pray for them to have the courage of their convictions and to be bold for truth and not wilt under political pressure or personal fear. Particularly pray for those who are representatives for our districts and state that they would rise to the occasion and do what is right.

Psalm 92:5-7 - "How great are Your works, O LORD! Your thoughts are very deep. A senseless man has no knowledge, nor does a stupid man understand this: that when the wicked sprouted up like grass and all who did iniquity flourished, it was only that they might be destroyed forevermore. But You, O LORD, are on high forever. For, behold, Your enemies, O LORD, for behold, Your enemies will perish and all who do iniquity will be scattered." (NASB) We have seen ungodliness and rebellion toward God raise its head like never before. Wickedness - physical, political and personal - has risen more pronounced and confrontationally than we have ever seen in our lifetimes. They flaunt their fraud and corruption in broad daylight and dare anyone to challenge them. They intimidate and threaten any who would dare stand against them. They lie with poisoned lips (Psalm 140:3) and refuse truth to be heard. I believe, as these verses say, that God has allowed the wicked to show their hand like never before in our lifetimes and show us corruption in places and at levels that have shocked all of us - all so that they can be taken out. I do believe God is going to clean this mess up. However, He expects us - His Church, His ecclesia - to participate in His plan by standing with Him and declaring and proclaiming His righteousness and His judgements over the land and support those who are doing so. So let's do that! Stand! Proclaim! Declare His righteous judgements. Remember (Psalm 149:9) that to execute on God's enemies the judgement written is an honor for all of His godly ones.

You can ask the Holy Spirit to convict them of sin and righteousness and judgement (John 16:8) and send upon them holy fear. Pray that they would be confronted with the fact that vengeance belongs to God and He will judge His people and it is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of a living God (Hebrews 10:30,31). And concerning abortion and the evil indoctrination of our children, ask the Holy Spirit to remind them of Jesus' words that "whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea." (Matthew 18:6). Pray the fear of God comes upon them in the night.

I know - what a "cheery" Christmas word! But, as we celebrate the gift of Jesus as our Savior this Christmas season, let us return to Him a gift of faith by standing firm in Him.

Merry Christmas,
Merry Christmas!!

It is hard to believe that Christmas day is just one week away! For the last several years, I have shared the story behind what has become one of my favorite Christmas songs - I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day. To be honest, this song had not been on "my favorites" list. It just didn't compare with the classics like "Silent Night" or "Mary Did You Know." That is, until I learned the story behind it. Since that time it has become a powerful part of my Christmas celebration - especially as it relates to our nation and has become our group's Christmas anthem.

The poem behind this song was written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who lived back in the mid 1800s. He also wrote the poem the Midnight Ride of Paul Revere. One day his wife was brushing their daughter's hair while Henry was in his office. It was a beautiful evening with a nice breeze blowing through the window. As his wife was putting a lock of her daughter's hair in an envelope and attempting to seal it with wax from a candle, somehow her dress caught fire and engulfed her in flames. He ran to her screams and threw himself on top of her trying to put the flames out. However, her burns were too great and she died. His face became scarred by the burns he received in trying to save her. He grew his beard to cover the scars.

The years passed and a sadness overcame him. And then our nation found itself at war - the Civil War. It seemed everything was falling apart. Brother fighting against brother. His son joined the fight. At one point, his son was severely wounded in battle and he didn't know if he would live or die.

Soon after his son's injury, one night at Christmas time, he was sitting in his home with great sadness and a feeling of despair. Then he heard the church bells ringing. Then he began to write.

I heard the bells on Christmas day.
Their old familiar carols play
and wild and sweet the words repeat
of peace on earth good will to men!

Then from each black, accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,
And with the sound
The carols drowned
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;
“There is no peace on earth,” I said;
“For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”

But then God! Through the sounds of Christmas bells he began to encourage himself and he ended the poem with these words:

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men.”

When I think of our nation now and the situation surrounding the writing of this poem, it moves me deeply. God is not dead! God is not asleep! Wrong shall fail! Right will prevail! Not because we deserve it, but because God is full of mercy. Scripture teaches that "mercy triumphs over judgment." (James 2:13) For years a strong remnant of God's people have repented for our sins - personally and corporately - and invoked God's promise of forgiveness and healing from 2 Chronicles 7:14. God is not finished with America now any more than He was at the time of our greatest national moral division. Now as then, right will prevail. God will prevail!

I want to encourage you to stay focused on believing what God has been consistently saying to His people. Do not focus on the news - fake news or otherwise. Stand strong in faith. We have prayed and continue to declare God's decrees over our nation. Continue to pray for the Josephs and Nehemiahs and Esthers and Daniels who will be the heroes of the faith in these next weeks. Pray for all evil and fraud to be exposed to all. Pray for angelic protection around all those who are in this fight and especially for President Trump and those around him. Pray that eyes will be opened and truth will prevail.

For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16). That is what we celebrate this season. If you have never yielded to Him, then humble yourself, seek His face, accept His forgiveness and give your life to Him and accept the Gift of His life He offers to you.

Merry Christmas to you all,

P.S. We WILL meet for prayer at the Gazebo in Venice at 5pm this Sunday, but we WILL NOT meet either Tuesday or the next Sunday.
12/14/20 update

ADDENDUM: Let me talk through this Electoral College stuff a little more. When we vote for President, we are not technically voting for the candidate, but for the electors who are pledged to that candidate. The number of electors in each state is equal to the total of their Representatives in the US House plus 2 Senators. If the Democrat candidate wins the race, their electors become the ones who go to the electoral college. If the Republican wins, the electors pledge to the Republican candidate goes.

However, once they are there, there is some discretion about what to do. In 2016, when the Electoral College met, Trump had 306 electors pledge to him and Hillary had 232 that were bound to her. When the actual Electoral College votes were cast, 304 went to trump and 227 went to Hillary and 7 electors chose a 3rd candidate. So there can be "unfaithful" electors. You can read more about the Electoral College here and here.

The main thing is that this year, it is not over until January 20 at Inauguration Day. Usually the "losing" electors, just fold up and go away. Today, we have seen that the Republican electors are not just going home, but are certifying their own electors so that they are ready to step in as the election lawsuits work their way through the system. It gets confusing some at this point, especially since we have never been this way before.

There is still some confusion in my mind over how the State Legislators get involved. They way I understand it now is that if there cannot be a clear decision because of lawsuits or other reasons and the state legislators have to get involved, then each state gets one vote and that vote must be based on the political make up of a state's Legislature. If there is a Republican state Legislature, then there is one vote for the Republican candidate, Trump. If the state Legislature is Democrat, then there is one vote for Biden. There are 24 states whose Legislature is controlled by Republicans and 15 by Democrats with some states split. In that case, the Republican candidate would win. I am not clear on when this process would be invoked but you can read more about that here in an article published by Americans For Tax Reform.

The main point is that it is not over. I still believe that Trump is going to win because of God's covenant with America that started with the Mayflower Compact and has been ratified in the last years by a growing number of God's people. Why don't you download an updated copy of the Mayflower Compact and sign your name to the bottom to take your stand in affirming our nation's covenant with God.

P.S. Fox News got us excited there for a bit because they posted that Georgia and Pennsylvania electors voted for Trump. After a while they walked that back and took it down. That news is what prompted my previous e-mail.

What a great day!!!

Check out what has just happened in Georgia and Pennsylvania today and in Nevada shortly. Look at what happened in states and in Washington DC and car caravan in Sarasota/Port Charlotte/Ft. Myers. Listen to this great message from a great man of God. IT IS NOT OVER!!!

Remember prayer at the event center in Englewood on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 and Venice Gazebo at 5:00 on Sundays.
12/12/20 update

Dear Friends,

We never said this was going to be an easy victory - miraculous yes, easy no. Miraculous means it was easy for God. For us, we have words in Scripture about "not losing heart," and "do not doubt," "endure" and I could keep on going. We have heard prophetic words that have told us to stand firm into January. Remember that the only constitutionally recognized date that is "carved in stone" so to speak is inauguration day in January. We can trust any institution of man, only Him!

God is in the process of training His ekklesia to reign with Him. Now is not the time to lose heart. Now is the time to dig our heals in and stand firm and engage the enemy in the heavenly places with faith. We are in the midst of Hannukkah, which celebrates the miraculous victory of a small band of warriors who against all odds restored the true worship of God in the temple. It was the family of Judas Maccabeus , whose name translates Praise Hammer!

Remember, this is not about man. It is not about Donald Trump and the Republicans. It is about two vastly different directions for out nation - either away from God or back toward God. Life vs death. Tyranny vs freedom. This is too important a battle to back away from whatever the cost. Do not fear. Do not doubt. Do not trust in the strategy of man. Trust in the Lord. Not by might, not by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord. Some trust in "horses and chariots," but we trust in the LORD.

Today a group is engaging that battle in real time. The prayer network that has waged this war in the heavenlies for years is in conference and today will be bringing our case before heavens courts. We can all participate via livestream and I encourage you to do so. You can find it here . If you can't find it online, just remember to stay in the Spirit and do not let discouragement or frustration or fear in. Stand firm.
12/8/20 update

Let me walk you back from the edge of despair after news we heard tonight about Pennsylvania and the Supreme Court !!!

When we met tonight we were hearing that the Supreme Court voted 4-4 to turn down the Pennsylvania appeal. THAT IS NOT TRUE!!!

See the response Trump's attorney Jenna Ellis has here. She says the court DID NOT reject the case, but only rejected EMERGENCY INJUCTIVE RELIEF. That means they decided not to make a snap decision. They did not reject hearing the case. It is still pending before the court.

This provides another lesson in not believing everything we hear right off the bat. Keep the faith, God is still at work!!

Blessings to you. Now go sleep better tonight!
12/6/20 update
Prayer Tonight - Sunday 12/6/20 at 5:00pm
Centennial Park in Venice, FL

Please join me for prayer tonight 12/6/20 at 5:00pm at the Gazebo in Centennial Park in Venice. I want us to share The Lord's Table tonight and I have a gift for you - a vial of anointing oil. There is so much going on I couldn't briefly describe it even if I wanted to. Instead let me just say that we know all the publicly visible "key" players in this spiritual drama. Others whose names we do not know at this time need our undergirding prayer. We know the way God works and he has dozens if not hundreds or thousands of Josephs and Esthers and Daniels and Nehemiahs and other "potential" heroes of the faith already placed by Him in key positions of responsibility and influence. Those are the ones we need to most pray for in this our. Like Esther, they are where they are for "such a time as this." We join in calling forth the "Hosts of Heaven," God's Angel Army, to assist in issuing and enforcing God's decrees at this time. Be encouraged and involved. God is on the move!

This coming Tuesday 12/8/20 is the 2nd Tuesday of the month and we will have our monthly Liberty Tree Patriots & Englewood for Trump meeting still at the Englewood Event Center at 6:30, but it will be in the area to the far right side of the building. We will get ourselves updated, encouraged and prayed-up.

Blessings to you all,

P.S. I participated in the prayer event described below and we will talk about that event also.
Update from 12/2/20

Be sure to read today's newsletter
for an important, immediate prayer strategy.

Operation Valkyrie
12:30am to 3:00am on 12/2/2020

Dutch Sheets in Nevada While the entire evening of prayer and worship is awesome, at about the 1:03 mark is when Dutch shares about the dream and strategy that explains Operation Valkyrie. Dutch ends the evening with a prayer that each of us should join him in and say AMEN. That starts at about the 2:00 mark.

GiveHim15 prayer for 12/1/20 Dutch's wife Cece leads the prayer today. She also explains some more about Operation Valkyrie and then leads us in prayer.

I want to encourage us all to join in this prayer event!! We will not be together as a group, but we can join together by praying at our appointed time. Here is a list of states and prayer times. I encourage you to participate with all of us together for Florida at 1:48am. I am going to pray with those from Georgia at 12:39. I encourage you to also join with those from your home state at their appointed time. Then we can all - all across the nation - decree at 3:00am that Valkyrie has fallen. If we base all this prayer on Eastern time, we can all stay together in prayer across the nation.

You can also go to Dutch Sheets website and scroll down to link to a state list and to a suggested prayer and decree. Also Dutch as well as many of us have been questioned by some about why we keep praying, why not just accept what the media says. Dutch does a great job of helping you know how to respond to such negativity. Click here to listen to him respond.

Join us tonight as we will meet at the Englewood Event Center at 6:30pm for our weekly prayer time.
God bless you and God bless America,
