A Boy Named Preston

“Here tonight is Preston Sharp, a 12-year-old boy from Redding, California, who noticed that veterans’ graves were not marked with flags on Veterans Day. He decided all by himself to change that and started a movement that has now placed 40,000 flags at the graves of our great heroes. Preston, a job well done. Young patriots, like Preston, teach all of us about our civic duty as Americans. And I met Preston a little while ago, and he is something very special — that I can tell you. Great future. Thank you very much for all you’ve done, Preston. Thank you very much. Preston’s reverence for those who have served our nation reminds us of why we salute our flag, why we put our hands on our hearts for the Pledge of Allegiance, and why we proudly stand for the National Anthem.” (President Donald J. Trump)1

“Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.” (Romans 12:10; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read about Preston’s “Flags & Flowers for Vets” project here. Pray for Preston to be able to complete his project of honor. Pray that civic groups across the nation join him in his endeavor.
  • Thank the Lord for every veteran who has served in our military and selflessly fought for our freedom in some way.
  • Intercede for the veterans you know.
  • Preston “gets” patriotism. Ask God to grant revelation to those who do not understand why we revere those who have served us, why we pledge allegiance to our flag, why we place our hands over our hearts when we do, and why we stand for the National Anthem.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, what an amazing young man Preston Sharp is. Thank you for laying this desire on his heart. Thank you for giving him national honor for honoring our national heroes. Stir many hearts and civic groups across this great nation to join him in his work to place flags and flowers on the graves of those who have served us. May we make it a national habit for people to go out of their way to thank living veterans for their service. (Intercede for the veterans you know.) Grant revelation to all those who really don’t understand patriotism. In Jesus name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree, because of efforts like Preston Sharp’s, the nation’s veterans will feel honored and cared for!

Are You Praying for the President?

We need to pray for whoever is in office. We need to pray for their success, regardless of what we feel about them. When President Clinton was in office and he was exposed for some of the sexual misconduct that was found, I took a lot of heat for a comment I made about him. At one conference, I said that I felt that God might be more upset with the Church for not praying for leaders and those in office, than He is with this man and his sin. You would have thought I had just cursed! I went on to say that if the Church doesn’t pray, then God can’t do some things. Scripture is filled with examples of God moving on the heart of even pagan kings that openly worshipped idols. They were not Jewish. They had no atonement, yet He used them. So, no matter what people think of President Trump, they need to be praying for him.

“From King Cyrus of Persia: The Lord, the God of heaven, gave all the kingdoms on earth to me. And he chose me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in the country of Judah. If any of God’s people are living among you, I pray God will bless them. You must let them go to Jerusalem in the country of Judah. You must let them go build the Temple of the Lord, the God of Israel, the God who is in Jerusalem.” (Ezra 1:2-3; ERV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • God can use anyone for His purposes. He raises up and brings down. Worship Him for His wisdom and mercy.
  • Repent if you pray “politically”. Is your political favorite in office? Will you only pray for those in the political party you support? You know who you are!
  • Pray for President Trump and Vice-President Pence, regardless of whether you voted for them or not. Pray for protection over them and their families.
  • Pray that they would continue to make righteous decisions.
  • Specifically pray for someone in office that you do not agree with politically. Remember that they are someone God loves. Ask Holy Spirit how to pray for them.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I worship You in Your wisdom, majesty, and mercy! We can trust You to set the rudder on the political ship of this nation. You can guide the hearts of elected officials for Your purposes. Forgive me for refusing to pray for those I have not politically agreed with. Wow! That’s not what Your Word says I’m to do. I humble myself and pray for President Trump and Vice-President Pence.  Protect them and their families from all harm. Speak to them Your righteous decisions and give them the grace to lead America in this tumultuous time. (Specifically pray for someone in office that you do not agree with politically. Ask Holy Spirit to help you.) Jesus, You love them and You died on the cross for them, and I would love to see them spend forever with You. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that political prayers will stop and the Church will pray according to the Word and the heart of God for America.

We’re Getting Closer to “The Turnaround”!

As you know, the time is growing close for the convening of THE TURNAROUND—APPEAL TO HEAVEN CONFERENCE.  Thousands will be attending both onsite in DC and via LiveStreaming. Your continued intercession on behalf of this significant time is vitally important and greatly appreciated. This week we will focus on God accomplishing His will and purposes during this significant assembly.


Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that every leader that speaks through declarations and decrees will release a clear sound and vision of God’s will for this nation.
  • Pray that the revelation released will become spiritual understanding in the hearts of those assembled there and those watching via LiveStreaming.
  • Pray that through the marrying of revelation and spiritual understanding, the attendees will leave energized, empowered, and focused to become “boots on the ground,” re-anointing this nation for spiritual Turnaround.
  • Pray for clear strategies to be imparted with abundance of wisdom to re-launch the Worldwide Prayer Movement. We will intercede from a greater posture of authority in obedience to prophetic words that will be given at the conference.
  • Pray for spiritual understanding to come that will fully transition intercessors into a position of declaring from their Kingly authority and anointing and not just from their Priestly burdens.
  • Pray there will be no resistance or action that would need special attention during conference time that will distract Dutch, Ceci, the DSM team, or any of the speakers, worship leaders, or other participants.
  • Pray that all in attendance will come surrendered, focused, and empowered to operate as one throughout the conference and beyond, as we all afterward return to our spheres of assignment.

A prayer you can pray:

In the name of Jesus, we join together as one new man in the earth to see your total will done during The TURNAROUND Conference. We decree that every song sung, word spoken, prophetic word decreed, and action taken will come straight from the heart of God. We pray that spiritual understanding will cause a fresh empowerment of the re-launching of the prayer movement to cause the open door of this year to be effective at a greater level. We lift up Dutch, Ceci, Chuck, Cindy, and Lou, as well as others who will decree and declare during the sessions. We pray for the worship teams and participants to move fully into vertical worship. We decree that Holy Spirit will invade the hearts of all speakers, worship leaders and teams, and those who will release declarations and decrees, that they will speak and sing forth words filled with the power of God. Let the worship teams be filled with the Kingdom sound. We decree that this fresh Kingdom sound enables and empowers the people of God to become the Roar of the Lion of Judah in this Nation. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree The Turnaround will strike the heart of God and shift the nation’s prayer movement.

The Fullness of Time

God said to Abraham, “I’m going to give you this land. As far as I’m concerned, it’s already yours.” But then he added later, “I can’t give you that land right now. It’s going to be 400 years, because the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.” Regarding this nation, I think God has been waiting in part for the Church to get ready. The bowls of intercession just have to get filled. Only God knows when the bowls are filled. Only God knows when the iniquity of the Amorites is complete. Regarding that iniquity, it’s as if he says, “When their sin is at a certain level, then I can righteously give the land to somebody else.” That’s what I think has been happening this last year. The iniquity ripened and the prayers of the saints filled the bowls. Now, God is moving to change this nation.

“Not until the fourth generation will your descendants return here to possess the land, because the sin of the Amorite people has not yet reached its full measure.” (Genesis 15:16; The VOICE)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Have you felt anxious and wondered why God is taking His time dealing with your personal situation or with national sin?
  • Have you felt the press of intercession to push toward the “filling of the bowls”?
  • Rejoice, because God is moving in this year – 2018/5778 to fling open doors, deal with iniquitous patterns, and answer our long-time prayers.
  • Declare that iniquity is being judged, death cultures are reversing, righteousness will reign.
  • Determine to lovingly help those who have participated in the iniquities of the past. Do not rejoice over their fall. Catch them! We were born for such a time as this.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You see the anxious hearts of Your people, so we bring them to You. At times, we haven’t understood why You appear to be taking your time. As always, Your Word holds the secret – iniquity was not yet full! That revelation gives us hope! So, we lean into the Words of the Lord that numerous prophetic voices have brought forth this year. Those voices are declaring that doors are opening, iniquitous structures are being judged, and righteousness will reign. Lord, take any gloating out of our hearts. Help us to pay attention to those whose hearts are turning, so we can be there to love them out of their shame and into Your Kingdom. In Jesus’ loving name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that iniquities are coming into fullness and God is turning the nation for His purposes.

How is Your View?

“You know, 2017 was a very difficult time of uncertainty for so many of us. There were terrorist acts, riots, political unrest, and division. As we look on the world news, we have the threat of North Korea looming over the world. We had natural disasters here in the U.S., with fires and flooding across the nation. But, in the midst of it, I found myself starting to feel really good, and people looked at me like, ‘Are you crazy? Why are you feeling good right now?’ Because I’m seeing what God is bringing.” (Cindy Jacobs)1

“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” (2 Corinthians 5:7; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Are you feeling fearful over the challenges the nation is facing? Talk to the Lord about your fears. He cares. He already knows. He won’t reject you.
  • Worship over the nation for a while. See the heavens opening and the angels pouring in to work with our intercession.
  • Intercede for the political climate, the economy, US international relationships, healing of natural disasters, or some other big thing we are facing. Ask God to help Him to see things from His perspective. Feel your faith arise, as you pray.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I know I can be honest with You about the many things the U.S. is facing on many sides. I love chatting with You about these things, knowing You won’t reject my questions. I exalt You over this nation, wonderful One! Open my eyes to see the angels rushing in to help carry out Your will, as we intercede! Help me to see from Your perspective in the heavenly places. (Intercede for the political climate, the economy, US international relationships, healing of natural disasters, or some other big thing we are facing.) The growing faith in me, as I see that You are setting things in order, feels amazing!

Today’s decree:

I decree that God is up to something good in America!

A Pro-Abortion Mindset

“No more children should be born when the parents, though healthy themselves, find that their children are physically or mentally defective. No matter how much they desire children, no man and woman have a right to bring into the world those who are to suffer from mental or physical affliction. It condemns the child to a life of misery and places upon the community the burden of caring for it, probably for its defective descendants for many generations.—Margaret Sanger”1

“Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!” (Psalm 139:16-17; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Sanger’s words above are part of the root of the modern-day abortion movement. Thank the Lord for every single child, healthy or not.
  • Declare that God has a destiny for every life He creates. He makes no mistakes.
  • Declare that every life has value and purpose.
  • Pray for any parents you know who have children with disabilities.
  • Think of a way you can do something kind to let a parent with a challenged child know they are supported.
  • Ask God for laws that protect the unborn from selective abortion.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, Margaret Sanger’s words above are shocking! It is very clear that Sanger believed, from ideas rooted in eugenics, that any person not “perfect” has no right to live. That is not how You feel. You love and value every life and we Believers are to value every life, as well. We are to come around the struggling and assist them in their circumstances. Encourage parents with disabled children, Jesus. (Pray for thse you know.) Show them how loved they are. Whisper acts of kindness I can do to help lighten their day a bit. Intervene supernaturally to get laws passed that prevent selective abortions of any kind. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that every life has value and U. S. law will protect each life from selective abortion!

Restoring the Sanctity of Life

“My friends, life is winning in America because love saves lives. And know, as you march for life, that your compassion, your persistence, your activism, and your prayers are saving lives. And this pro-life generation should never doubt we are with you. This President stands with you. And He who said, ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you,’ is with you as well. And I believe with all of my heart, with your continued dedication and compassion, with pro-life majorities in the Congress, with President Donald Trump in this White House, and with God’s help, we will restore the sanctity of life to the center of American law.” (Vice-President Mike Pence)1

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:13-16; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Oh, worship the One Who perfectly created you! You are fearfully and wonderfully made!
  • Pray for every pregnant mama you know.
  • Intercede for those married couples who would like to be pregnant and are struggling with barrenness. Call “life” to their wombs!
  • Ask the Father for more pro-life laws to restore a culture of honoring life in America.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we worship You—the One Who gave us life! Oh, how you love us! Oh, how marvelous You have made us! I lift up (pray for each pregnant woman you know.) Father, grant a grace to conceive for all those married couples who would like to have a child. We say into the women’s wombs, “Life!” We have a window of opportunity in this political environment to pass life-honoring legislation. Make a way, Jesus!

Today’s decree:

We decree that the sanctity of life will be restored to America in this administration!

Our Pro-Life President

“More than 240 years ago, our Founders wrote words that have echoed through the ages. They declared ‘these Truths to be self-evident,’ that we are, each of us, endowed by our ‘Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.’ Forty-five years ago, the Supreme Court of the United States turned its back on the unalienable right to life.  But in that moment, our movement began. A movement that continues to win hearts and minds. A movement defined by generosity, compassion, and love. And a movement that one year ago, tomorrow, inaugurated the most pro-life President in American history, President Donald Trump. From preventing taxpayer dollars from funding abortion overseas to empowering states to respect life and Title X, to nominating judges who will uphold our God-given liberties enshrined in the Constitution of the United States.  This President has been a tireless defender of life and conscience in America.” (Vice-President Mike Pence)1

“But God had special plans for me even before I was born. So he chose me through his grace.” (Galatians 1:15; ERV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • President Donald J. Trump is a fallible man. We certainly don’t worship him and we can’t overlook his humanity. However, he pleases the Lord in that he chooses to honor life in the United States of America! Thank the Lord for our President.
  • Thank the Lord for V.P. Mike Pence, as well, as he is also staunchly pro-life and has a wonderful influence on our President.
  • Thank God for President Trump’s actions to prevent our tax dollars from funding overseas abortions, for empowering states to honor life, and for nominating pro-life judges.
  • Identificationally repent for the state our nation is in due to actions of our past leaders who chose abortion for us.
  • Ask the Lord to let Roe v Wade be overturned in our generation.
  • Say out loud that you choose life for your family and community and nation.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, thank you for President Trump, who has boldly and unashamedly chosen life for our nation. He is appalled at abortion and the effect on our country. Bless him for these righteous stands and protect him from the backlash that could come against him, spiritually and physically, for this stand. Bless Vice-President Mike Pence, also. What a wonderful, godly, and God-fearing man. It’s good to see his unfaltering support and encouragement for the President. Thank you that President Trump has acted to keep my tax dollars from funding abortion, here and overseas. He is working to give states the right to stop funding abortion in our states. He has kept his word and nominated pro-life judges. Forgive our judges, presidents, governors, and legislators of the past that opened the door to abortion and even expanded its bloody culture of death. God save us from abortion! Move on the hearts of our Justices to reverse Roe v Wade in my generation! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that God will bless and protect President Trump for being a pro-life President!

Room at the Inn

“Marianne Donadio was 17 when she found out she was pregnant.  At first, she felt like she had no place to turn. But when she told her parents, they responded with total love, total affection, total support. Marianne bravely chose life and soon gave birth to her son. She named him Benedict, which means blessing. Marianne was so grateful for her parents’ love and support that she felt called to serve those who were not as fortunate as her. She joined with others in her community to start a maternity home to care for homeless women who were pregnant. They named it ‘Room at the Inn.’ Today, Marianne and her husband, Don, are the parents of six beautiful children, and her eldest son, Benedict, and her daughter, Maria, join us here today. Over the last 15 years, Room at the Inn has provided housing, childcare, counseling, education, and job training to more than 400 women. Even more importantly, it has given them hope. It has shown each woman that she is not forgotten, that she is not alone, and that she really now has a whole family of people who will help her succeed.” (President Donald J. Trump)1

“This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him.” (Deuteronomy 30:19-20a; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for each woman who has chosen life for her unborn child, when her circumstances were challenging. Bless them for being brave.
  • Thank the Lord for the men who fathered children, who were not aborted, but stood with the woman’s decision. Bless them for supporting life.
  • Thank the Lord for parents and others in these women’s support networks who helped them in their life decisions. Bless them for not judging, but choosing the life of the new little one, instead of thinking of their own reputations.
  • Many ministries have unfolded after life-choices were made. Pray for the success of the Room at the Inn and any life centers or women’s support centers you know about in your community.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I and my family choose life! Thank you for the women who are brave enough to choose to keep a challenging pregnancy, even though they may battle great fear at times.  Thank you for the men who impregnated them who stood with their decision to choose life and did not pressure them to abort. Thank you for parents, family, friends, and church members who swallowed their pride, chose to love and not judge, and supported completely the woman’s choice to bring her baby into the world. I bless the many life centers and other ministries that help women who choose life. Grant grace to the workers and move on hearts to give finances to help in many ways! Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that this nation will be blessed for choosing life more and more every day!
