70 Days – Righteousness Exalts a Nation – Day 16
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 SUPER INTERCESSOR
God works within us by the power of Holy Spirit to bring about His God dreams in our lives, and through us into our land.
“God can do anything, you know — far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around, but by working within us, His Spirit deeply and gently within us.” (Ephesians 3:20; MSG)
“…No one’s ever seen or heard anything like this, Never, so much as imagined anything quite like it — What God has arranged for those who love Him. But you’ve seen and heard it because God by His Spirit has brought it all out into the open before you. The Spirit, not content to flit around on the surface, dives into the depths of God, and brings out what God planned all along. Whoever knows what you’re thinking and planning except you yourself? The same with God — except that he not only knows what he’s thinking, but he lets us in on it. God offers a full report on the gifts of life and salvation that he is giving us. We don’t have to rely on the world’s guesses and opinions. We didn’t learn this by reading books or going to school; we learned it from God, who taught us person-to-person through Jesus, and we’re passing it on to you in the same firsthand, personal way. The unspiritual self, just as it is by nature, can’t receive the gifts of God’s Spirit. There’s no capacity for them. They seem like so much silliness. Spirit can be known only by spirit — God’s Spirit and our spirits in open communion. Spiritually alive, we have access to everything God’s Spirit is doing, and can’t be judged by unspiritual critics. Isaiah’s question, “Is there anyone around who knows God’s Spirit, anyone who knows what He is doing?” has been answered: Christ knows, and we have Christ’s Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 2:9-16; MSG)
“But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit.” (Jude :20 NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes of prayer:
- Thank the Lord for His ability to work within your life and spheres of influence by the power of Holy Spirit.
- Ask the Father to open your eyes and heart to the God-possibilities He is able to bring about in your life and this nation by the work of Holy Spirit within you.
- Ask Holy Spirit to search out the deep things of God and make them known to you – bringing revelation that brings revolution in your life.
- Thank the Lord that you have the mind of Christ.
- Ask Holy Spirit to give you prayer strategies, as you stand in your designated spheres of influence and intercede for your city, state, and nation.
- Acknowledge and yield to Holy Spirit as the Super-Intercessor who partners with you to bring about God’s Kingdom purposes in your life and land.
- Practice Jude 20. Pray in the Holy Spirit.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, we acknowledge that You can do anything, far more than we could ever imagine or guess or request in our wildest dreams! Thank you for working in our lives by the power of Holy Spirit. We yield to Your God-work within us. Lord, open our eyes and hearts to the God-possibilities that You want to bring about in our lives and this nation. We believe! Holy Spirit, search out the deep things of God and make them known to us. Thank you for the mind of Christ. Holy Spirit, give us prayer strategies as we stand in our designated spheres of influence and intercede for our cities, states, and nation. Lord, bring your revelation that bring revolution in our lives. Holy Spirit, intercede through us and bring forth the manifestations of God’s Kingdom purposes in the United States of America. In Jesus’ name, 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.
