70 Days – Righteousness Exalts a Nation – Day 30
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)
REBUILDING THE WALL OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IN OUR NATION, STATES, AND TERRITORIES – 52 Day State Prayer Focus: Day 13: New York, June 21, 1788
The goodness of God is one of the most powerful weapons to break the resistance of the enemy in the hearts of men. Today, we have been given a strategic word and a mighty weapon of praise to war with over our nation. The Lord is pouring out His Goodness upon His people to bring a spirit of true repentance, revival, and transformation to our land. So, Arise, let your light shine releasing the glory, goodness, righteousness, and truth of God across our nation and into the state of New York.
“For once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light, for the fruit that the light produces consists of every form of goodness, righteousness, and truth.” (Ephesians 5:8-9)
“Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?” (Romans 2:4, NKJV)
“I love You Lord, Oh Your mercy never fails me, All my days I’ve been held in Your hands, From the moment that I wake up, Until I lay my head, I will sing of the goodness of God. All my life You have been faithful, All my life You have been so, so good, With every breath that I am able, I will sing of the goodness of God. I love Your voice, You have led me through the fire, In darkest nights, You are close like no other, I’ve known You as a father, I’ve known You as a friend, I have lived in the goodness of God. Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me, Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me, With my life laid down, I’m surrendered now, I give You everything, Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me.”
(Written by Jenn Johnson, Jason Ingram, Ben Fielding, Ed Cash, Brian Johnson.) Listen to the song here.
Let us acknowledge the love, faithfulness and goodness of the Lord that He has poured out on us, His people, and upon the nation of America. We will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!

A prayer you can pray:
Father, on behalf of this nation of America and the state of New York, we say:
We love you, Lord, for your mercy never fails us. All our days have been held in your hands. The moment that we wake up until we lay our head down, we will sing of the goodness of God. All our life You have been faithful, all our life You have been so, so good. With every breath that we are able, we will sing of the goodness of God. We love Your voice. You have led us through the fire. In darkest nights, You are close like no other. We’ve known You as a father. We’ve known You as a friend. We have lived in the goodness of God. Your goodness is running after, it’s running after us. With our lives laid down, we’re surrendered now. We give You everything. Your goodness is running after, it’s running after us.”
Father, we come into agreement with Your kingdom plan and purposes for our nation and state of New York. We call New York into the original intent of her birthright and destiny as ordained by Almighty God. Lord, align this state in Your righteousness. Let this state come to her senses and rise-up in her true identity. Let the foundation of all unrighteous government completely crumble in this state. Let your light shine in this state and expose the darkness. Mercy, Lord! Mercy Lord! Hear the cry of the righteous and bring the state of New York into your redemptive plan. We lift up the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth over this nation and the state of New York. Lord, draw the people to salvation by your Spirit. Father, thank you for the righteous remnant that is still holding the line in New York. There is war going on in the heavenlies and we are tearing down wicked principalities, and we are raising up righteousness! There are revival houses in the land. Lord, pour out your lovingkindness on this state, and let your goodness lead her to repentance. Hear the heart cry of Your remnant! Let the worshipers in this state arise. New York, you are a battleground state. We say, “Let the revolutionary spirit of the Lord be released within you!” Lord we release Your light, righteousness, goodness and truth to the state of New York. Lord, we join with the boots on the ground in New York, shoulder to shoulder. With weapons of righteousness, we move through this state like a fine-toothed comb to remove the tangles from this state, so that New York gets her hair combed. Lord, restore Your light and glory as in the days of old to the state of New York. Father, You are faithful! We believe to see Your goodness in the land of the living in the state of New York and in our nation. In Jesus’ name we pray, 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.
