Redemptive Cycles

God doesn’t just restore things once. He restores things back to His plan and purpose in what I call redemptive cycles. We are always in some process of restoring something in the planet earth back to the church in the way it is supposed to be. Another word for this is “reformation.” Reformation means to correct or straighten. Something has gotten crooked or off, like a broken bone. It means to amend something, when it’s not just the way it is supposed to be. We shouldn’t think of reformation as just in the context of the “Great Reformation,” because we are always going through seasons of restoring and reforming things, and straightening things out. He started in Genesis at the Fall and He is going to correct everything.

“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.” (1 Peter 5:10; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Tell God you want Him to restore what needs restoring in your generation. No more “times around the mountain.” Ask Him how you can partner with Him in this.
  • Declare a reformation season for America, because God is saying through the prophets that it is a reformation season for this nation.
  • Declare that marriages and families are being restored.
  • Declare that children that grew up in Christian homes are returning to their families and the Church.
  • Declare a straightening out of racism in America. Say there will be honor where honor is due.
  • Say that gender identities are being straightened out and men and women will know who God created them to be.
  • Decree a re-setting of speaking and reporting the truth in media.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, so many things are out of alignment with You in this generation. I would feel overwhelmed if I did not know You work things out in cycles. However, I don’t want to see us go “around the mountain again”, not realizing Your promises in this generation. I want to partner with You to fulfill Your will. I declare this is a reformation season for America, because the prophets are saying it is! I declare that marriages and families are being restored! I declare that children that grew up in Christian homes are returning to their families and the Church! I declare a straightening out of racism in America and that honor will be given where honor is due! I say that that gender identities are being straightened out and men and women will know who God created them to be! I decree a re-setting of speaking and reporting the truth in media, because they are largely fueling the divisions in America today. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that where the nation got off track, God is re-setting it!

Fullness of Time

In Acts, chapter 3, God talks about “seasons of restoration of all things.” The Greek word there means to reconstitute. That means to move things back to where they were supposed to operate or function, such as the constitution of an organization or the way a human body is supposed to operate. A season is a “chronos”. In every season you have a window of opportunity. That is a “kairos” season. This is when you reap the fullness of that season. This is not a guaranteed time, but rather an opportune time – an opportunity is being provided to reap the fullness of the season.

“So change the way you think and act, and turn [to God] to have your sins removed. Then times will come when the Lord will refresh you. He will send you Jesus, whom he has appointed to be the Christ.” (Acts 3:19-20; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Repent of complacency, for a kairos time is upon us.
  • Chronos and kairos are spiritual and natural words and meanings. Ask God to open your eyes for any “investments” you have made in prior seasons, in the natural and in the spiritual, where you can expect a harvest now. These could be financial, relational, fields of study, and/or spiritual preparation.
  • Ask God to restore things out of alignment back to His original intent. Do this for personal things out of order – you health, finances, relationships, etc. Also, call national matters to line up with God’s will and the U. S. Constitution.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I repent for any complacency in my life. Break any lukewarmness and all effects of delay off me. Show me where investments I made in the past, even when I wasn’t conscience of making them, now have the potential for multiplied harvest. Make me expectant in this kairos season.  Restore my health, my finances, and my relationships. Restore my faith, the operation of spiritual gifts, and my ability to hear Your voice. Restore national confidence in our founding documents, such as our U.S. Constitution, as well as Your plan and purpose for America. Restore wise, godly men and women to public service and replace the arrogant, proud, and self-seeking. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The fullness of time has come and God is realigning matters in the United States back to the Constitutional standard.

Can You See Him Now?

Let’s take a good, hard look at Jesus. How well do we really know Him? We just prayed through the last few days of His life, applying those truths to our relationships with Him. Job thought He knew God. That is, until God showed up and asked Him a series of questions: “Where were you when…? Did you…? Do you know…? Are you able…?” When God revealed Himself in full reality before Job, it changed his life forever. Though he had lost everything, he repented to God for his pride and ignorance. He realized that he really knew little about God and His ways until the very moment God confronted him. He had known what others had told him about God, but now, he knew Him for himself, and he was forever changed. The nation needs a fresh revelation of God. Go get it!

“You told me to listen while you spoke and to try to answer your questions. In the past I knew only what others had told me, but now I have seen you with my own eyes.” (Job 42:4-5; GNT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • The way we “see” Jesus now is through the Bible. Start reading it in a new way – to receive a revelation of Who He is.
  • Forgive when you see things in that Bible that were once taught to you out of context, or where God was misrepresented. Embrace the truth. Look up the Greek and Hebrew meanings of words using a concordance or Bible app.
  • As you read, let God ask you the types of questions he asked Job. Know you do not have answers. You don’t know, but He does. Let this knowledge cause you to worship Him.
  • Let Him show you how to pray and what to do to make Him known in your sphere of influence.

A prayer you can pray:

I want to see God! Show me, Father, as I read Your Word. Holy Spirit reveal truth to me in those precious words. Lord, I forgive those who knew in part and taught in part. Forgive me for not checking some things out for myself. Correct my spiritual vision and knowledge of You, as I study to show myself approved. Let me not be afraid for You to ask me questions about Yourself that I have no answers to. I will worship You and let You teach me! Teach me to pray all over again in new and fresh ways, so that I touch Your heart, even as You touch mine. Set me in the harvest fields in my sphere of influence, introducing others to Jesus. America will be saved! Amen.

Today’s decree:

He is freshly revealing Himself to the Ekklesia through His Word!

Walking in the Holy Spirit

“Jesus Christ was filled with the Holy Spirit. He could have gone through the beatings, the crucifixion, and all of the pain in sovereign health. He could have shown Himself obviously to be God in the midst of the attacks against Him. But God had a different plan, So, Jesus willingly laid down His life and He took it up again three days later. 50 days after His resurrection, He gave that same Spirit to His disciples, who were waiting for His promise right where He told them to be. Since that day, every Believer who welcomes the Holy Spirit’s baptism and walks in obedience to Him can live expressing the same works that Jesus did.” (Robert Heidler)1

“No one can take my life from me. I sacrifice it voluntarily. For I have the authority to lay it down when I want to and also to take it up again. For this is what my Father has commanded.” (John 10:18; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Did you think Jesus was killed by the Roman soldiers? Did you think He was killed by the Jewish priests or Satan himself? They could never have killed Him! Look again.
  • Are you regularly waiting before Him; listening for Him; watching for His activities around You? Choose to do so from this time forward.
  • If you are filled with the Holy Spirit, do you know you can walk in the power of the Holy Spirit, just like Jesus did? Ask Him to manifest through you to those that need to see Jesus and know the Father.
  • Declare, “The sons of God are being revealed!”

A prayer you can pray:

Jesus, let this revelation sink deep down in me. I have often thought that You were killed by others. I have even said so at times, even though I know what You said in John 10:18. There is a fresh Holy Spirit wind blowing over Your Word and drawing me to seek You in a deeper way. What I have been taught In Church is not enough. Teach me, Holy Spirit. Lead me, guide me and direct me, as I lean on, trust in and rely on You. Manifest Your reality to those around me that need to see Jesus. Draw them to the Father, then put me in their path. I want to be one of the “sons” of God that are being revealed all across America – those that heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons, and preach the good news of the Gospel of the Kingdom. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The outpouring in America is waiting for the Ekklesia to reveal Him!

He is Risen!

Jesus Christ is risen! He received terrible lashes for our healing. He died to deal with the sin and iniquity of all mankind. He rose from the dead and defeated death, hell and the grave! He has dealt with every vestige of the curse of Adam! If we have accepted Christ, why then do so many of us live in such defeat? What revelation do we need to see the appropriation of the blessings of our eternal life in Him? The Bible says we must only believe.

“Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, ‘Don’t be afraid; just believe.’” (Mark 5:36; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Today we are going to pray the Word. Jesus is the Living Word. If you are born again, all of these promises are yours. Let faith arise in you to make these scriptural declarations.
  • “For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20; NIV)
  • “If You can?” echoed Jesus. ‘All things are possible to him who believes!’” (Mark 9:23; NIV) Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, ‘I believe; help my unbelief!’” (Mark 9:24; NIV)
  • Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11:24; NIV)
  • “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16; NIV)
  • “But Jesus overheard them and said to Jairus, ’Do not be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.’” (Luke 8:50; NIV)
  • “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” (Romans 15:13; NIV)

A prayer you can pray:

(Today, declare the scriptures above. If you get stuck on one or find it hard to declare, take your time and talk through it with the Lord. Jesus died to set you free! Happy Resurrection Day!)

Today’s decree:

I am a BELIEVER in the Lord, Jesus Christ!

The Silent Day

“Jesus is silent on Saturday. The women have anointed his body and placed it in Joseph’s tomb.  The cadaver of Christ is as mute as the stone which guards it. He spoke much on Friday. He will liberate the slaves of death on Sunday.  But on Saturday, Jesus is silent. Jesus is silent. God is silent. Saturday is silent. Jesus knew God would not leave him alone in the grave. You need to know, God will not leave you alone with your struggles.  His silence is not his absence, inactivity is never apathy. Saturdays have their purpose. They let us feel the full force of God’s strength. You do what Jesus did. Lie still. Stay silent. Trust God.” (Max Lucado)1

“You will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.” (Acts 2:27; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Sit or lie down very still today and rest in God’s holy presence.
  • Ask Him to speak to You – His love for you, His plans for you and your loved ones. Feel the force of His strength in the silence.
  • Repent, if you are having trouble being still and knowing He is God. He knows. Ask Him to help you desire these quiet moments with Him.
  • Intercede quietly and confidently for God to hover over our nation, over those who need Him, over circumstances that seem so out of control. In the stillness, feel His determination to complete the tasks He has started for America.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, most people, including Believers, struggle to sit in quiet. We are so used to activity, even prayer activity. It feels foreign to “do nothing.” But, you did nothing, seemingly, on the day Jesus rested in that tomb. You were quiet right before the greatest victory the planet has ever experienced! You weren’t checked out, or angry, or rejecting man. You were waiting for the exact right moment to undo all the works of the evil one – in a powerful surprise moment! Show me how to rest and wait on You and Your perfect moments. Show me how to intercede for a nation that seems out of control right now. Show me how You are resting, waiting, for that perfect salvation moment. You are coming! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that Jesus will not leave me alone in my struggles. He is coming to save me and save America at the exact right time!

The Cross

“Suddenly the center head yanked itself up. A roar sliced the silence. ‘It is finished.’ The centurion looked around at the rocks that had fallen and the sky that had blackened. He turned and stared at the soldiers as they stared at Jesus with frozen faces. He turned and watched as the eyes of Jesus lifted and looked toward home. He listened as the parched lips parted and the swollen tongue spoke for the last time…’Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!’ Had the centurion not said it, the soldiers would have. Had the centurion not said it, the rocks would have—as would have the angels, the stars, or even the demons. But he did say it. It fell to a nameless foreigner to state what they all knew. ‘Truly this man was the Son of God!’(Max Lucado)1

“…For the joy set before him, Jesus endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2; KJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Exalt Jesus, for He was ridiculed, beaten, and crucified for your
  • Read the full crucifixion story in Matthew 27.
  • Pray for God to reveal Jesus to every unsaved person you know. Cry out for the harvest.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I will never be able to thank you enough for sending Your Son to give His life in exchange for mine. It makes me fall apart every time I think about it! It is so hard ot comprehend a love like Yours. Give me an even greater revelation of the cost as I read Matthew 27. Get the Ekklesia and me ready to disciple the multitudes that are about to come into the Kingdom. (Pray for God to reveal Jesus to every unsaved person you know.) Amen.

Today’s decree:

I will shout it to the nation, “Jesus is the Son of God!”

Holy Thursday

We have entered the season when Jesus, our Christ, died on the cross, resurrected from the dead and opened the door to eternal life. We enter into new life the moment we say we believe in all the Jesus did for us. We are now citizens of His Kingdom – Kingdom-advancers! Today is what traditional denominations call Holy Thursday. It is the day Jesus introduced His pending personal sacrifice and introduced communion to them.

“While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take it; this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it. ‘This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many,’ he said to them.  ‘Truly I tell you, I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.’ When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.” (Mark 14:22-26; NIV)|

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Father for sending Jesus – to save us, deliver us, heal us, and teach us the ways of His Kingdom.
  • If you have the ability to take communion today, go get some bread and wine or juice. Include friends or family members or enjoy it alone with the Lord. Just follow the scripture above. Be aware of Him and the exchange of His sinless life for yours.
  • Believe you are healed as you partake of the blood of the new covenant.
  • Believe you are delivered of challenging circumstances as you remember He came to give you life and that abundantly!
  • Worship Him.

A prayer you can pray:

Follow the prayer points above today. The focus is on receiving communion together with Him and receiving all of the benefits of your salvation!

Today’s decree:

I am a Kingdom-advancer!

A Pro-Life Nation

“When pro-abortion President Barack Obama was in office, the official position of the United States at the United Nations was promoting abortion-on-demand without any limits as a ‘human right.’ Now that President Donald Trump is president, officials at the United Nations are telling countries around the world that the United States is a pro-life country and that the UN should not be promoting abortion-on-demand across the globe.

Naturally, the position defending the right to life of unborn children isn’t going over well with the pro-abortion bureaucrats at the UN. Some of them are absolutely beside themselves that the United States would dare stand up for women and children and protect them from the horrors of abortion.”1

“Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster.” (Deuteronomy 30:15; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for our pro-life President Trump and our pro-life Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.
  • Rejoice, for we are influencing the world to choose life globally in this season where Jesus gave His life that we might be saved!
  • Continue to pray that God would give more technology, such as 3D ultrasounds, and medical knowledge, such as a heartbeat’s early detection, to reveal the life within the womb.
  • Pray for the safety of women and children, including the unborn, in your community and around the world.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I thank you for President Trump’s strong stand for life! I am surprised that a national leader in this day and age would take such a bold and public stand and make it a national position! This is truly an answer to prayer. Bless U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley for her pro-life work at the United Nations, as well. Stop U.S. funding of abortions internationally, as well as nationally. Reveal the life in the womb, through things people have come to trust – technology and medical research. Send Your angels to protect the lives of our women and children in America. Make our schools and neighborhoods safe, and protect life in the womb, in Jesus name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

This nation is a Pro-life Nation!

Kingdom Ambassadors

When you say, “Kingdom of God, come. Will of God, be,” it will manifest in your home and in your business and in your community, in your state and in this nation. You are an ambassador of the King and you will release His Kingdom authority. In the Greek, these words are in a current command tone. His will will be done! Don’t be afraid. Get out your Bible and start proclaiming! We still have so much work to be done in this nation.

“Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read these verses out loud as a current command. Emphasize “come” and “be done”. Feel the difference? This was not Jesus petitioning the Father to do these things. He was teaching us to command the will of God to be done in the earth.
  • To know the will of God and the ways of His Kingdom, look first to His Word: choose life and command abortion to end in this nation; command righteousness to flow like a river through our nation; command justice for the oppressed; command His glory to be seen across America!
  • Command other things that He places on your heart that line up with His will and His Word. Praying over our local schools would be a good choice.

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for teaching us how to pray! You did not leave us blind as to what You want us to pray for or how You want us to petition the Father. We ask for forgiveness of our sins and for our daily bread, but we command the Kingdom of God to manifest in the earth! We are enforcing the victory of the cross and resurrection when we pray with this level of confidence and trust in You! Give us Your heart and direction to pray over this nation and our communities today. (Pray as you feel led.) Thank you, Lord. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Kingdom of God, come! Will of God, be done in the earth, even as it is in heaven!
