70 Days – Righteousness Exalts a Nation – Day 12
GiveHim15 will be collaborating with Love Ministries in a very special 70-day prayer focus. We are going to take a stand for righteousness in the United States of America from February 9th through Passover, April 19th.
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34; NASB)
THE RIGHTEOUS INTERCESSOR
“…Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant… because Jesus lives forever, He has a permanent priesthood. Therefore, He is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because He always lives to intercede for them.” (Hebrews 7:22-25; NIV)
“You showed favor to your land, O Lord; you restored the fortunes of Jacob. You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins.
You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger.
Restore us again, O God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us. Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations? Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? Show us your unfailing love, O Lord, and grant us your salvation.
I will listen to what God the Lord will say; He promises peace to his people, his saints — but let them not return to folly. Surely his salvation is near those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.
Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other. Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven. The Lord will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest. Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.” (Psalm 85:1-13; NIV)
Our Righteous Intercessor will receive his reward. It is to the Father’s glory that we bear fruit and fruit that stands showing ourselves to be His disciples. Today, be encouraged by the fact that Jesus Christ always gets His prayers answered. The Lord has given us His word and His decree to shift this nation of America! Harvest is upon us! “The Lord will indeed give what is good and our land will yield its harvest.”
Give Him 15 minutes of prayer:
- Read and meditate on the Scriptures above. Let their truth sink deep into your spirit.
- Agree with the intercession of Jesus He is releasing over us personally, corporately, territorially, and generationally.
- Come into agreement with the intercession of Jesus Christ over our nation and the Church of America.
- Decree the Scriptures above into the place you live, and over your spheres of influence.
A prayer you can pray:
Father God, thank you for our Righteous Intercessor, Jesus, who is looking down from heaven. Jesus, you are the guarantee of a better covenant. We agree with your word, “Because Jesus lives forever, He has a permanent priesthood. Therefore, He is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because He always lives to intercede for them” (Hebrews 7:25; NIV). Lord, we ask that a Spirit of repentance would be poured out upon Your church and America. Forgive us and cleanse us of all unrighteousness. Draw this nation to Yourself with cords of loving-kindness. Restore us again, O God our Savior. Put away Your displeasure toward us as a nation. Revive us again and restore us that we may live in Your presence. Show us your unfailing love and grant us Your salvation. Lord, let us draw near to listen and hear and obey Your voice, so that we will not return to our folly. Let the fear of the Lord come upon Your people and this nation, that Your glory may dwell in our land. We decree Your Word into our territories, spheres of influence, cities, states and nation: “Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other. Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven. The Lord will indeed give what is good and our land will yield its harvest. Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.” (Psalm 85:10-13; NIV) We ask in Your Name, Jesus. Amen!
The 70 Day Decree:
Lord God, we present ourselves unto You a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1). We acknowledge and declare that we are filled with the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:11). Your Word tells us that righteousness exalts a nation (Proverbs 14:34). We stand before You in the land You have given us, and we decree and release the righteousness of Christ into our territories, spheres of influence, our cities, states, and nation in order to bring healing, revival, awakening, and reformation to America. Father, let Your Spirit of righteousness be released and established in us, and in every place in which You have given us jurisdiction. Let Your righteous Kingdom come and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10)! Prepare the soil of this nation and realign us with Your righteousness! In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
