Preparing for the Esther Fast for the Supreme Court on 8/18/18

“In 1857, the U.S. Supreme Court delivered a tragic decision in the Dred Scott v Sanford case that seemingly sealed the fate of slaves in America. In spite of powerful spiritual awakenings, we failed to end the bloodshed of slavery. Catastrophe followed and new estimates show 750,000 lives were lost on the battlefields of the Civil War. We believe the same implications of God’s justice still stand today.” In the case of Roe v Wade, it appeared that the fate of untold millions of babies were sealed (more than 60 million to date)—they would be lost to abortion. To prevent more precious lives lost, God wants us to humble ourselves in national fasting and repentance and bring this to Him. “In essence, He is saying, ‘If you don’t deal with it in your courts, I’ll deal with it in Mine.’” (Lou Engle)1

“Listen to me, my people; and hear me, my nation: for a law will go out from me, and I will establish my justice for a light to the peoples. My righteousness is near. My salvation has gone out, and my arms will judge the peoples.” (Isaiah 51:4-5a; WEB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Write today’s decree on a piece of paper and hold it up to the Lord. Say, “Together with thousands of other Believers today, I am bringing Roe v Wade to Your Court, and we expect a reversal! Thank you, Lord!”
  • Tell the Lord in your own words how you feel about abortion. Cry out against it.
  • First, find God’s heart of compassion, then intercede for all those whose lives have been touched by the effects of Roe v Wade: women who have chosen to abort a child, parents who encouraged abortion, men who have fathered children and encouraged the mother to abort the child. Pray for doctors who performed abortions, together with all of their staff members. Also, pray for pastors, educators and doctors who have encouraged abortion.

A prayer you can pray:

(Write today’s decree on a piece of paper and hold it up to the Lord.) God, together with thousands of other Believers today, I am bringing Roe v Wade to Your Court, and we expect a reversal! Thank you, Lord! I cry out against abortion! (Tell the Lord in your own words how you feel about abortion.) Grant me Your grace of compassion for all of those who have had abortion touch their lives. Because the U.S. Supreme Court decided abortion should be legal in America, the enemy has fooled so many into thinking that it really is okay. Women, even Christian women, have suffered abortion. Draw them to Your loving forgiveness, Lord. Let their bodies, minds, and emotions be healed. Bring to repentance and deliver the fathers, would-be-grandparents, doctors, pastors, educators, and all others who have participated in this sin. Jesus, wash this curse away, and all the effects of this bloodshed off our nation. Thank you for your healing of our nation, amen.

Today’s decree:

We are bringing Roe v Wade to God’s Court and we expect a reversal!

Lou Engle is Calling for an Esther Fast for the Courts

“Once again we find ourselves in a moment of decision concerning the U.S. Supreme Court and the potential to overturn the 1973 decree of death known as Roe v Wade. We are urging everyone who cares about the future of America to join us in a three-day Esther fast, August 18-21 (sundown to sundown). Through the years, the story of Esther has been a dominating prophetic theme for our prayer movement, understanding the Roe v Wade is not unlike Haman’s evil edict that threatened the genocide of Esther’s people. She rose up ‘for such a time as this,’ risking everything to overturn Haman’s death decree. Esther’s story is timeless in the sense that we periodically find ourselves in similar moments that demand intensified prayer and fasting for the sake of shifting circumstances. It is our conviction that America is in another Esther moment.” (Lou Engle)1

For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

Please plan to join many thousands of others across the Body of Christ in fasting in some way for the three days from sundown 8/18 through sundown 8/21. Please seek medical advice before engaging in any fast, especially an Esther Fast, which calls for no food or water for the three days. Dutch Sheets wants your fast to be safe. Therefore, if you are able to fast on juice, fast one meal a day, fast a particular food group, or fast something like media, that is acceptable. God knows your particular situation.

  • Ask God for grace for all of those preparing to enter this three-day fast.
  • Prepare your heart by reading the book of Esther and praying the Word as the Holy Spirit leads you to.
  • Worship.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, thank you for leaders like Lou Engle who help us to know how to break national strongholds. We are willing to enter this three-day Esther Fast to turn the Court and reverse Roe v Wade. We want the 1973 death decree of Roe v Wade broken off America. Show each of us the way we can safely fast to get this stronghold broken. Those who can fast as Esther fasted, grace for that. Those that must fast in a different manner due to medical needs, grace for that. Please accept the fast each is able to honor You with. Show us how to pray in preparation as we read the book of Esther. We will worship You, Lord of Life! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The 1973 death decree called Roe v Wade will be broken off the U.S.A.!

Striking the Mark

In Job 36:32, the Word says that the Lord hurls His lightning to the earth and it strikes the mark. The word for strike there is “paga”. It is the word for intercession. God is calling us to intercede for the Supreme Court. We will intercede and we will strike the mark, and strike, and strike, until we see God’s purposes come into place. God is causing His purposes to come to this Court and we must tip the bowls of intercession—those bowls mentioned in Revelation chapters 5 and 8. We will decree that the storm of the Lord is coming against the powers of darkness that inhabit the Court. We will decree His purposes. We will see Divine justice and truth unfold and rest in the halls of the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

He covers His hands with the lightning, and commands it to strike the mark. Its noise declares His presence.” (Job 36:32-33a; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercession is not just nice prayers of petition and hopefulness. We are to decree God’s will into the earth. Decree, “The praying Church will seek You Lord for Your words to pray and decree.” Do that.
  • Decree, “The intercession of the saints of the Most HIgh God regarding a new Supreme Court Justice will strike the mark.”
  • Decree, “God’s will is coming to the U. S. Supreme Court!”
  • Decree, “The storm of the Lord is coming against the powers of darkness that inhabit the Court.”
  • Decree, “Divine justice and truth will unfold and rest in the halls of the Supreme Court of the United States of America!”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, don’t let me pray anemic prayers in which I hope something comes to pass to shift the U. S. Supreme Court. Give me scriptures and decrees to decree. I want my intercession to strike the mark with great effect! May every praying saint do the same! Fill our hearts and mouths with Your decrees. Your will is coming to the Supreme Court! Your storm will blow the enemy out of its long-established place in the Court! Divine justice and truth will unfold and rest in the halls of the Supreme Court of the United States of America! In the mighty and holy name of Jesus, amen.

Today’s decree:

Our prayers for the Supreme Court will strike the mark!

Did you know that Charles Finney was saved by reading law books? He was studying for law. There was so much scripture in them that eventually he gave his heart to Christ and was born again. He decided he didn’t want to be a lawyer anymore, but he wanted to be a minister.

Getting Our Warfare Right

A few years ago a very reputable friend of mine had a dream and called me about it. His dream began with Revelation 8:5 and went on from there. He told me the dream and then had this interpretation: “Prepare for God’s ‘first strike’ on the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court will go from a ‘siege’ to a ‘suddenly’. Isaiah 27:1—God is about to strike the serpent with His sword. Declare His judgements at the gate of the Supreme Court. Release and activate His written judgements at the Supreme Court.” Let me say again that I do not ever pray that God would hurt anyone. I decree and pray that God would bring His judgements against any false ideologies and against the powers of darkness that are there. I ask him to remove justices that need to be removed. I do not pray against people and I am not asking you, or anyone else, to do that! I do not believe in that nonsense. Our warfare is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, and wicked spirits in high places. We want people to be saved and come to know Jesus. We do not pray against people. We pray against the adversary, the devil.

And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.” (Revelation 8:5; KJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Let’s do a quick little Bible study. Read Ephesians 6:10-18, 2 Corinthians 10:3-6, 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, 2 Corinthians 11:14, 1 Peter 5:8, Isaiah 54:17, Revelation 12:7-9, and Psalm 91.
  • If you are not engaging in the army of God, it is time for you to do so. We need every Believer’s intercession to fill those heavenly bowls.
  • Repent, if you have focused on being angry at people rather than angry at Satan. He is only borrowing some of them. Pray, “Father, forgive them, because they don’t understand the spiritual ramifications of what they are doing.”
  • Go back through the GiveHim15 posts since July 8th and you will see the essence of our warfare for the Supreme Court. You will see where the roots are and what some of the issues are—cases that have moved our nation away from God. Pray through the ones that Holy Spirit highlights.

A prayer you can pray:

(Before you pray today, read Ephesians 6:10-18, 2 Corinthians 10:3-6, 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, 2 Corinthians 11:14, 1 Peter 5:8, Isaiah 54:17, Revelation 12:7-9, and Psalm 91.) Father, I commit myself to be engaged in Your army. Teach me to war in the Spirit. Show me how to separate people from how the enemy uses them, having compassion toward them, and praying for their blind eyes to be opened. Father, forgive them, because they really do not understand the long-term spiritual effect of the decisions they are making. They will see it, but it may be too late! Satan, however, is a different story! Let’s war together to get him out of the Court’s affairs! (End your prayer time today by going back through the GiveHim15 posts since July 8th. You will see the essence of our warfare for the Supreme Court. You will see where the roots are and what some of the issues are—cases that have moved our nation away from God. Pray through the ones that Holy Spirit highlights.)

Today’s decree:

I will engage in spiritual warfare for the sake of America’s future!

You Always Have Access to My Court

During the fourth of July weekend in 2004, Lou Engle felt led to go to Philadelphia where the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were written and the beginnings of our nation took place. One of his ministry partners had a dream. Lou recalls, “I was pregnant with the God-thought of renewing covenant with God on behalf of America and decreeing a shift over the Supreme Court. My friend had a dream that night and in the dream he and I were rushing to get to a basketball court. Once we burst through the doors of the basketball court, we apologized to the person in authority over the basketball court for being late. The person responded, ‘You are not late. You always have access to my court.’ Then, we noticed that there were nine chairs in the middle of the court and two of the seats were unoccupied. My friend and I were then invited by the person in authority to possess those two open seats and officiate over the court. We felt that the dream was declaring that two seats on the Supreme Court were opening and that the Church must sit in authority and proclaim righteous justices for those seats.”

“This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘If you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts.” (Zechariah 3:7; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Even though the security at the Supreme Court does not allow Christians to stop and pray there, the building belongs to the people, just like the White House and U. S. Capitol buildings. Declare, “The Church always has access to the U. S. Supreme Court.”
  • Intercede for the Body of Christ to walk in greater fear of the Lord and obedience to the Lord. This is what creates Divine access.
  • Repent, if you find yourself more politically-motivated than prayer-motivated when it comes to the actions of our Court and government.
  • We have access everywhere in intercession. Call the Court to line up with God’s sovereign order and plan for America’s future.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, the security guards at the U. S. Supreme Court often try to stop Christians from praying there. That is not okay. If they only knew what a blessing our intercession can be. We pray for the welfare of the justices and their staffs. We pray for constitutional and righteous judgements. We pray for justice, truth, mercy and life! We say,  “The Church always has access to the U. S. Supreme Court.” It is the Court that represents all the people of this great nation. If there is anything in us that limits our access, Lord, we repent. Increase the fear of the Lord and obedience to Your Word and Holy Spirit leading, so that we can govern in intercession. Remove political thinking from us and give us the mind of Christ. Move us to intercession where we have access to all things. From that vantage point, we call our Supreme Court to line up with Your sovereign order and plan for America. In the name of Jesus, amen.

Today’s decree:

The praying Church always has access to the Supreme Court!

Here We Go…

“Kavanaugh Hearings to Begin September 4”, read the headline that came through by email. Here we go, was my first thought. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (IA) expects the hearings to last three or four days. “This announcement comes after the committee has received the largest number of Executive Branch records ever for the consideration of a Supreme Court nominee. As of today, the committee has received more than 184,000 pages of records from Judge Kavanaugh’s work as a White House lawyer and his work for Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr. The committee also expects to receive hundreds of thousands of additional pages of Executive Branch documents. These records will be reviewed in addition to the 307 cases in which Judge Kavanaugh wrote an opinion as an appeals court judge, the hundreds more opinions he joined, and the more than 17,500 pages of material he provided in response to the committee’s bipartisan questionnaire…The Kavanaugh nomination has been the most transparent nomination process in history.”1

For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light.” (Luke 8:17; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Righteous character is critical in a Justice of the Supreme Court of our land. It will also determine how a person will view the U. S. Constitution and how they will rule regarding it. Ask God that Judge Kavanaugh’s character be revealed in the upcoming hearings.
  • Judge Brett Kavanaugh has presented more documents and displayed the greatest level of transparency in the history of our judicial nomination process to date. Pray Luke 8:17 above. Decree, “Truth will be revealed.”
  • Intercede for the Senate Judiciary Committee members and their staff members as they review the huge amount of records presented by Judge Kavanaugh. Let them see what they need to see.
  • Pray for a fair and just hearing for Judge Kavanaugh which begins September 4, 2018.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we desire a person of your own choosing, above all else, as our next Supreme Court Justice. We expect that one to be a person of the most stellar character—truly above reproach. A judge’s character can color the way they interpret the U. S. Constitution, as well as the way they ultimately rule. Judge Kavanaugh has presented more documents than anyone else in history. Besides the necessary level of transparency, there is a huge amount of documentation to review. Grace those who will be hearing him to be able to see the most critical things. Prepare the way for a just and fair hearing for hm in September. Let Your choice alone sit on the Court. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

The open seat on the Supreme Court is reserved only for the person of God’s choosing!

Silent Siege at the Court

Lou Engle, leader of TheCall, started a prayer movement at the Supreme Court that is a silent siege. Today, it is called Bound4Life and is led by Matt Lockett. He led young people to start praying at the Court with red “Life tape” on their mouths praying for the ending of abortion in America and a shifting of the courts. All silent. They have prayed there every day since October 2004—through rain, snow, and heat. They will not stop until God delivers America from the sin of abortion.

“Lay siege against it, build a siege wall against it, and heap up a mound against it; set camps against it also, and place battering rams against it all around.” (Ezekiel 4:2-3; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray, “Jesus, I plead Your blood over my sins and the sins of my nation. God, end abortion, and send revival to America.”
  • Decide to lay siege to the spirit of abortion in America, especially as it has gained entrance through the U.S. Supreme Court.
  • Declare, “Abortion, remove your filthy self from America’s shores! We will not tolerate this spirit of death that claims our unborn—the treasures of our nation’s future!”
  • Pray for Bound4Life and all of the Christians who pray daily at the Supreme Court. Pray as if you are standing there alongside them. Even check the weather report for Washington, D.C., for the day.

A prayer you can pray:

In the Spirit, I join those standing on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court today and every day to pray for the ending of abortion in America. I join them in their daily silent prayer. “Jesus, I plead Your blood over my sins and the sins of my nation. God, end abortion, and send revival to America.” Abortion, remove your filthy self from America’s shores! We will not tolerate this spirit of death that claims our unborn—the treasures of our nation’s future! Jesus, provide the Bound4Life intercessors the grace to stand against the enemy’s tactics through our Court. They are standing there today in the rain and humidity of a D.C. summer day. They aren’t distracted as a tourist would be. They are standing firm and engaged in a spiritual battle until a death culture is routed from our land. Turn the Court, Lord! Save us! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Christ’s followers are laying siege against abortion in America!

Prophetic Decrees and God’s Merciful Judgement

On July 4, 2003, Lou Engle and I were in New Haven, CT. The Spirit of God came upon us and we began to decree that the judgements of the Lord were being released in the governmental realm of the nation. That means many things. Please don’t think God’s up there wanting to beat up people or wanting to hurt anyone. The judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. The judgements of the Lord are to bring forth righteousness, and draws sinners to repentance and salvation. This certainly does not hurt them. You must understand the heart of God who always wants to redeem. He takes no pleasure in the judgements of the wicked. So, Lou decreed Psalm 2 and since then I have watched God orchestrate things regarding this nation in a wonderful way. I know we are close! We are close to breakthrough, especially in the courts.

The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true, being altogether righteous.” (Psalm 19:9; BSB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Decree Psalm 19:9 over the nation and over the Supreme Court.
  • Get out your Bible and decree Psalm 2 over the nation and the Supreme Court.
  • Worship the Lord!

A prayer you can pray:

“The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true, being altogether righteous.” (Psalm 19:9; BSB) Listen to me U.S.A! Listen to me, U. S. Supreme Court! “Why is this nation so shaken up and the people planning foolish things? The kings of the earth stand in a line ready to fight, and all the leaders are against You, Lord, and against Your Chosen One. They say, ‘Let us break their chains and throw them away from us.’ You Who sit in the heavens laughs. You make fun of them. You will speak to them in Your anger and make them afraid, saying, But as for Me, I have set My King on Zion, My holy mountain.’ I will make known Your words, Lord. He said to Me, ‘You are My Son. Today I have become Your Father. Ask of Me, and I will give the nations for you to own. The ends of the earth will belong to You. You will break them using a piece of iron. And they will be broken in pieces like pots of clay.’ So, kings, be wise. Listen, you rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and be full of joy as you shake in fear. Kiss the Son. Be afraid that He may be angry and destroy you in the way. For His anger is quick. Happy are all who put their trust in Him.” You will accomplish Your heart’s desire as we, Your Ekklesia, partner with You in intercession. Kingdom of God, come! Will of God on earth, be done! In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Fear the Lord and celebrate His goodness, America!

Prophetic Exhortation to Shift the Courts

I know that there have been thousands praying and fasting and doing prayer journeys over the years for the shifting of the courts of America, and especially the Supreme Court. Many have done much more than I have, but I want to tell you a little about my journey. When God spoke to me in October of 2002, he said that he wanted me to give my focus to the courts. He said they were the open gate where evil is coming into the nation and the Church must change that. I began to stir up the prayer movement and say, “You must pray for the courts.” Since that time, I have prayed, preached, pleaded, been on television programs, written books, and done about everything I can possibly do to say, “We must give all of our efforts to this! The future of a nation is at stake! We are warring for the soul of a nation!” I am not being sensational when I say that. We are warring for the destiny of millions of people. We are warring for the destiny of nations!

“And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession, and said, ‘O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments, we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments….Now therefore, our God, hear the prayer of Your servant, and his supplications… O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name.’” (Daniel 9:4-5, 17a and 19; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray the prayer of Daniel (written above) over the courts of America.
  • Thank the Lord for those who have prayed, and taught, and warned, and led intercession and prayer journeys, for the shifting of the Supreme Court.
  • Intercede for those leaders that set their faces like flint and have not stopped until they saw the shift of the Court in their generation. Ask God to refresh them and help them press in until the Court is solidly shifted—two, maybe three, or even four conservative constitutional justices seated there.
  • Decree that America will line up with the destiny God has for this great nation. We were created to take the Gospel to the nations of the earth from these shores.

A prayer you can pray:

O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps Your covenant and mercy with those who love You, and with those who keep Your commandments, we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments….Now therefore, our God, hear the prayer of Your servants, and our supplications…O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name. Thank you for all those that have interceded for a shift in the Supreme Court – the shift we are now experiencing. We won’t be content with just one more conservative justice. We want at least two more and maybe three more strong constitutionalists on our high court! We call America to align with the reasons You established our nation—to be a light in the darkness and a place of refuge where everyone can find salvation in Christ. Let us also be a people who take the Gospel from these shores to the nations of the earth! In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

America! Fulfill your destiny! Preach the Gospel to the nations of the earth!

Satan’s Opposition Against the Saints

God decrees that changes are happening. God decrees, “This is going to change! I am coming to do this thing! I’m going to move in the nation! I’m going to restore!” The minute Satan hears that, he starts to plan to move against the Church. He moves against the Church because God works through the Church. Satan tries to get us weary and to distract us in any way he can. Sometimes, he just gets us off track through bad theology. He also works through our ignorance of what is happening. He tries to deceive us, so that what God has decreed can no longer happen. When God makes a promise to us, it is not always guaranteed. It can be conditional on what we do, how we respond, whether we will carry out the Word. This can be expected in the battle for the Courts.

He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law.” (Daniel 7:25a; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read Ephesians 6:10-18. This is the passage on the full armor of God. Pray through it out loud and ready yourself for spiritual battle for the Supreme Court.
  • Ask the Lord for supernatural grace to stay focussed.
  • Consider fasting social media, news outlets, or other things that could be a distraction to hearing Holy Spirit clearly.
  • Many believers are basing their belief system on politics instead of the Word of God right now. Intercede for the Church to be able to lay political views aside and come into unity over the Word of God.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we recognize that we are in a spiritual battle. Satan is looking to win this one, because at least a generation is at stake, if not a number of generations of Americans coming up behind us. Life, justice, truth, and righteousness are at stake and we must war with spiritual weapons to win this battle for the Supreme Court. Grant Your Church supernatural grace and strength to focus. Turn us aside from distractions that can sway our mindsets one way or another. We must have the mind of Christ. Help us to pray at all times, as Apostle Paul encourages us to in Ephesians 6:18. We need to hear Holy Spirit telling us how to pray, so we hit the mark with our intercession. Remove our prideful opinions based on our politics. Our thoughts must be Yours and must be based on Your Word. Then, the enemy cannot manipulate us or turn us against each other. Make us one, so You can command a blessing over our nation, Jesus! If we are one in You, we will encourage each other and the enemy won’t be able to wear us out! Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is moving in to change the Supreme Court and change the nation!
