70 Days – Righteousness Exalts a Nation – Day 28
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 11: New Hampshire, June 21, 1788
You are the freedom fighters standing in the gap before the Lord on behalf of this nation. Do not lose you spiritual fervor! The word “fervor” literally means “to be hot, boil or glow.” Let us be faithful to daily make the righteous decree during these 70 Days. “Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.” (Romans 12:11) The Lord will answer the cry of the righteous!
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1 NIV)
“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein, for He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers.
Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up His soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully. He will receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of His salvation. Such is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob.
“Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle!9 Lift up your heads, O gates! And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory!” (Psalm 24; ESV)
“We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near; men tell of your wonderful deeds. You say, ‘I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge uprightly. When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm. To the arrogant I say, “Boast no more,” and to the wicked, “Do not lift up your horns. Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak with outstretched neck.”’ No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt a man. But it is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another. In the hand of the Lord is a cup full of foaming wine mixed with spices; he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth drink it down to its very dregs. As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob. I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.” (Psalm 75; BSB)

Father, you have called the righteous remnant in this nation and in the state of New Hampshire to stand on Your Holy mountain and stand in the Holy Place. “Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle!9 Lift up your heads, O gates! And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory!” (Psalm 24; ESV)
Father, we come into agreement with Your kingdom plan and purposes for our nation and state of New Hampshire. We call New Hampshire into the original intent of her birthright and destiny as ordained by Almighty God. New Hampshire, you are a first fruits state. You were the first state to sign the Declaration of Independence. You carry great governmental authority! You are the first state in the nation to hold a political primary that determines one of the greatest world leaders, the President of the United States. Your very motto is “Live Free or Die”. New Hampshire, “State of Freedom”, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1 NIV)
I heard the Lord say, “New Hampshire, you are the gateway of Glory for our nation. Old Glory and the New Glory in this new era. You have come again, New Hampshire, for indeed you are the crossroads state, the valley of decision state for the nation. The eyes of the Lord are upon you. I AM, is legislating heaven in your midst. ‘No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt a man. But it is God who judges: He brings one down, He exalts another.’ (Psalm 75) Be careful what you approve! Cast your vote for righteousness. You are the voice of the clarion call of righteousness to the nation. Use your influence wisely. Let your voice be clear.”
Gates and governments are your calling. Isaiah 33:22 says, “For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; He will save us.” Take your place New Hampshire and sit down and rule with God. Even as Esther, we bless you to use your voice of uncompromising truth politically and spiritually to bring this nation back to liberty and freedom. New Hampshire you are the hammer state that brings blow after blow to bring breakthrough for the nation. Granite State, we declare you are Rock solid. Thank you for the redemptive plans that You have ordained for New Hampshire, Lord. We ask that You align New Hampshire in Your righteousness. “As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob. I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.” (Psalm 75; NIV) 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.
