Hitting the Mark in Governmental Intercession

I have been to Washington, D.C., many times to pray. One of those times, I was meeting with a leader in Congress. I had formed a good relationship with him and he would fill me in on what was happening there in our government and other things to pray about. This particular day he had a very important committee meeting to attend and he invited me to come with him. It was a meeting where a pro-life group was trying to get a bill through the committee. So, I went with him. The atmosphere was tense. The majority in the committee at the time was pro-choice. It got so tense that the Chairman slammed his gavel down and said they were going to cancel the meeting. Everyone just started to get up and leave, until it was just me and my friend. He invited me to stay in the room and pray for a while all by myself. I hadn’t planned to be there, so I asked the Lord what He wanted me to do. He said, “I’m tired of the man who leads this and I want you to fire him. Decree that he is no longer allowed to sit in that seat.” I continued to seek Him, until I was sure I was not being presumptuous. Then, I pointed at the Chairman’s seat and said, “You, sir, have offended God and you are not allowed to sit in that seat anymore. Somebody else is going to take your place.” Two weeks later there was a sudden change, exactly as the Lord had led me to decree.

“You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; so light will shine on your ways.” (Job 22:28; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask the Lord to increase your authority and accuracy in governmental intercession.
  • Pray that you would ask Holy Spirit how you should pray. Don’t just jump right in.
  • Repent of any time you have prayed out of emotion and not sought Him and His direction first.
  • Worship Him. Desire Him. Draw close and lean in to hear Him.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, keep teaching us how to pray governmentally. We know we can’t just decree whatever we want. We have to be led by Holy Spirit. You know when it’s time. You know what You can do, will do, etc. However, at Your leading, we will make decrees in accordance with Your Will. Keep us from praying for our own will to be done, or any other presumptuous prayer. We repent of praying out of emotion, instead of carefully seeking Your perfect will. We long to partner with You and effect Your changes governmentally, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that the Church will operate in governmental intercession as led by Holy Spirit.

Operating in Governmental Intercession

On the 50-state tour that Chuck Pierce and I did in 2003, I was up speaking. The prophetic was stirred up in Chuck and he prophesied that if we would pray right then, Saddam Hussein would be found within a week. He was shocked at the words that just came out of his mouth! We commanded the witchcraft that was hiding Saddam to be broken. Then, we prayed over a young man in uniform that happened to be in the congregation that evening, as a representative of the military that Chuck believed would uncover Saddam’s hiding place. He was from the 4th Infantry Division of the U. S. Army. Before the week was out, Saddam Hussein was found in a hole in the ground by the 4th U. S. Infantry Division.1 This is governmental intercession.

“Indeed, the Sovereign Lord never does anything until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets.” (Amos 3:7; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • 1 Corinthians 14:1 encourages the Church to earnestly desire spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy. So, ask the Lord to increase your ability to hear His voice, so that you can prophesy what You hear Him say!
  • Ask God for increased faith to prophesy, as it says in Romans 12:6. You’ll need this gift for governmental intercession.
  • There are many things that need placed in order in this nation and in the nations. Ask the Lord what is on His heart. Ask Him what to prophetically decree, declare, bind and loose.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I thank you for the spiritual gifts you give the Church, so we can enforce the victory of the cross and expand Your Kingdom in the earth. Prophecy is a critical gift, according to Your Word. I want this gift. I want to prophesy more than I ever have before. I want to know what You want to do about things in the earth. Then, I want to carry out Your will, decreeing, declaring, binding and loosing, until Your purposes are accomplished. I want to see answers to our prayers in the newspapers! Thank you, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Body of Christ will desire to prophesy and we will see miracle answers in the media as we intercede governmentally as we use that gift!

The Sound of Liberty

“Proclaim Liberty Throughout the Land Unto All the Inhabitants thereof” is the message on America’s Liberty Bell. No one currently living has heard this bell ring, but it has rung out in the past. It has rung to notify the new nation’s citizens of the reading of the original Declaration of Independence. It has rung to call our original constitutionalists to their lawmaking meetings. It has been the symbol of freedom and national unity from the Revolutionary War through the Civil War until today. It has been freedom’s symbol for the abolition of slavery and to rally women to vote. It may be a silent bell today, but it shouts to the glory of God, as the inscription declared upon it, proclaiming our nation’s liberty, is from the Holy Word of God.

“Set this year apart as holy, a time to proclaim freedom throughout the land for all who live there.” (Leviticus 25:10; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Decree Leviticus 25:10 over America and proclaim this a year of holiness unto the Lord and a year of religious freedom!
  • The Liberty Bell rang for significant reasons. Declare the bell is ringing for religious freedom. Declare it ringing for racial reconciliation. Declare it ringing for justice for the unborn. Keep going – add your own reasons to ring the Liberty Bell!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I decree that this year is set apart as holy and it is a time to proclaim freedom throughout the land to all those who live here in America! Thank you that You gave our nation a symbol of freedom in the form of the Liberty Bell. It cannot ring in the natural, but I ring it out over this nation in the spirit. I ring it over life for the unborn! I ring it for racial reconciliation! I ring it for religious freedom and for the ending of the lie of the separation of church and state! I will declare many things free as I spiritually ring the bell of liberty over it! In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that this is a year of liberty in America!

Korea – Holy Ghost Wind Tunnel

On a recent trip to Korea, I saw the Korean Peninsula as a “wind tunnel” through which Holy Spirit would blow from the South to what is now North Korea, and into all of Asia. “I am going to release an explosion of grace over Korea,” Holy Spirit declared. Acts 17:26 states that God determines the boundaries of nations. We decreed, therefore, that the man-made boundary between North & South Korea would be removed and the rebirth/rebuilding/restoration of all Korea would happen so amazingly fast that it would be a sign and wonder to the world. We then prayed and opened the door for the Korean Peninsula to be a wind tunnel through which the wind of God would blow, starting from the south, sweeping through the north, and then into all of Asia, as God had previously shown me.

“From one man He made every nation of men, to inhabit the whole earth; and He determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their lands.” (Acts 17:26; BSB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Praise God and stir up your holy faith, because you are about to join in decreeing the shifting of the nations of North and South Korea.
  • Find a map of S. Korea and imagine it as a wind tunnel to N. Korea and the rest of Asia. Shout in agreement with Holy Spirit, “It is time! It is time! It is time! Grace, grace, grace!”
  • Decree that God is resetting the boundaries of North and South Korea to the boundaries He has set for them. Declare that they shall be one again, even as God has determined they would be!
  • Prophecy, “Wind of God, blow! Make Korea Your wind tunnel of revival and reformation in Asia!”

A prayer you can pray:

Oh, we praise You, Lord! We worship You and stir ourselves up in our most holy faith, so that we might decree with authority the things You are doing in Korea right now. You are going to move quickly to make North and South Korea one. You have determined the boundaries of that nation. You have determined the purpose of that nation. We agree with You and decree that Korea shall be the wind tunnel of revival and reformation to all of Asia, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Korea shall become a wind tunnel of Holy Ghost movement and change to all of Asia!

Freedom Comes at a Steep Cost

“Do you know what price the signers of that parchment paid for their patriotism, the devotion to principle? John Hancock of Massachusetts was one of the wealthiest men who came to Philadelphia. Later, as he stood outside Boston and watched the enemy sweep by, he said, ‘Burn, Boston, though it makes John Hancock a beggar.’

“Altogether, of the 56 men who signed our great Declaration, 5 were taken prisoner, 12 had their homes sacked, 2 lost their sons, 9 died in the war itself. Those men knew what they were doing. In the final stirring words of the Declaration, they pledged to one another ‘our lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.’ And when liberty was at stake, they were willing to pay the price.”1

“Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ.” (Philippians 3:8; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Our founding fathers counted the cost to live free. We must do the same to live free in Christ. Stop and think about this.
  • Are we willing today to pay the price or pray the price to develop the nation we want to live in—one that is found pleasing to the Lord? Talk to the Lord about this.
  • Ask the Lord to supernaturally create the unity in the body of Christ that is needed and the strategies needed to become a nation that honors God. Commit to be a nation-changer.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, thank you that You gave us the example of the Apostle Paul to show us there is Kingdom business that is worth giving up everything for to see it come to pass. And there is nation-building business worth it, as well. Give me a determination to work together with You and to pray unceasingly to see national transformation that honors You. Bless the Church with the necessary unity. I am here, Lord, use me! In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

If I will be free, there will be a cost and I am determined to pay it rather than live in bondage to sin or to man!

Decree God’s Kingdom Will Into The Earth

We are bold to pray, “Thy Kingdom come!” When the disciples asked Jesus how they should pray, Jesus said, “Well, I’m here now. The King of the Kingdom has come to reverse the Fall and reestablish My Kingdom rule in the earth. So, ask for My Kingdom rule to come on earth as it is in heaven. I’m going to give you the keys to that Kingdom, and as My Ekklesia, you are going to bring My Kingdom rule into situations for Me.” The Greek text there say, “Demand it!”

“Pray along these lines: ‘Our Father in heaven, we honor your holy name. We ask that your kingdom will come now. May your will be done here on earth, just as it is in heaven.’” (Matthew 6:9-10; TLB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Call for God’s Kingdom Will to invade the White House. May God’s heart and mind permeate our nation’s leadership, so decisions made are in alignment with God’s Will.
  • Decree that God’s Kingdom Will will be done in the situation with North Korea. Pray that their ICBM capabilities will be thwarted.
  • Declare that the expansion of God’s Kingdom throughout the earth cannot be stopped. Indeed, declare the way is open and no one can stop it, not even the demons of hell!
  • Do you have a personal situation that needs God’s Kingdom Will applied? Get up and demand it now!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we say, “Kingdom rule invade the situations our nation is currently facing!” We release for the King His Kingdom rule and influence into situations in our government. Lord, may Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We command Your Will to be done in our government and in our relationships with other nations. This nation will turn back to its Judeo-Christian roots. One will affect the other. As this nation turns back to God, our government will turn back to You and this will ultimately affect the spread of the Gospel to the nations of the earth. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God’s Kingdom rule will come to planet earth in this season and the Gospel will continue to be preached around the world!

Celebrating the Best That America Is!

“We understand that a nation is more than just a geography. A nation is the sum of its citizens, their hopes, their dreams, their values, and their prayers. America is a land rich with history and culture, and filled with people of courage, kindness, and strength. And though we have many stories we all share at home, the one thing we do share is one beautiful destiny.  And whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood. We all salute the same great American flag. And we are all made by the same Almighty God.” (President Donald J. Trump)1

“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Galatians 5:13-14; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for the freedom we enjoy here in America at the cost of so many lives given for that freedom.
  • Before you go and picnic, party, and set off fireworks, pray for the families of those whose loved ones paid the ultimate price so you could enjoy that freedom today.
  • Think about all the things you do each day that shout “I live in a free nation!” Thank God for each and every one!
  • Now, do the same for those things that are unique about the United States. What a gift of a nation God has given us!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, freedom is precious and its cost is great. The cost for our nation’s freedom certainly has been. I thank you, God, for that freedom, but I also pray for those who have felt the pain of the loss of loved ones whose blood bought that freedom for me and my family. Comfort them, Lord. Thank you for reminding me to let my first thoughts today, as I get ready to celebrate Independence Day, be for those who have suffered loss for America’s freedom and for those who mourn. I live in a free nation! (Thank the Lord for all you personally have and do that shows this. Then, think about what freedom looks like in this nation and thank Him for that.) Thank you, Jesus, for the freedom we celebrate today! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that I will not use my freedom to indulge the flesh, but to love and serve others, making Jesus known to them, and to expand the Kingdom of God in my realms of influence.

Don’t Give Up on America!

Rather than giving up on America, join me and thousands of others, as we appeal to heaven for a third great awakening, which could result in millions of people saved and a resurrection of the America we love. As we celebrate our birth as a nation, let’s recommit ourselves to seeing a rebirth of truth, integrity, and our godly heritage. Don’t give up on America!

“And let us not get tired of doing what is right, for after a while we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t get discouraged and give up.” (Galatians 6:9; TLB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • As we get ready to celebrate our nation’s birthday tomorrow, let’s not forget among the celebration the great cost that was paid to birth this nation. And, let’s ask God for a rebirth of it in our day and age.
  • Boldly ask God that this nation would birth a Third Great Awakening! We are seeing signs of revival. Press in for more outpouring—saved souls, transformed lives, and eventual governmental change.
  • Recommit yourself to being a promoter of truth, integrity and godly heritage. It will take all of us to turn this ship around!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we come to You today and thank You for this great nation, the United States of America. We acknowledge that this nation was birthed from great bravery in the face of impossible odds in order that Your dream could come to pass. We want to see another wave of that dream—a third Great Awakening! We want to see souls saved and lives changed, hearts altered and a nation born again! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will not give up on America! We will pray and act and be participants in God’s dream for our nation!

President Trump Openly Honors God

“We are one nation, under God. The story of America’s men and women in uniform is the story of freedom and overcoming oppression. It’s the strong protecting the weak and good defeating evil. There’s a lot of evil out there!  We are awed by your service and your sacrifice. We Americans love our veterans. We love our families, we love our freedom and we love our God. Since the signing of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago, America has always affirmed that liberty comes from our Creator. Our rights were given by our God and no earthly force can ever take those rights away. Here in America, we do not worship government. We worship God!” (President Trump)1

“O LORD, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will give thanks to Your name; For You have worked wonders, plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.” (Isaiah 25:1; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank God for our nation’s strong, God-honoring heritage, all the way back to its foundations.
  • Thank God for a President that will attend a Christian event and make statements publicly that acknowledge and honor Him. Ask Him to bless President Trump.
  • Thank the Lord for all those who have fought for our freedom, since the beginning – men and women who have sacrificed much. Pray that those currently living would be honored regularly for that service.
  • Thank the Father for the liberty He bestows upon us and affirm that we look to Him ultimately for our freedom, as true freedom can only come from Him.

A prayer you can pray:

God, we thank you for the godly heritage of the United States of America! May we never take for granted the fact that we are one of only a few nations that can trace our lineage back to your direct establishment for Your purposes. We thank you for President Trump. Bestow honor and favor on him, as he publicly honors You without shame. He points the people to You, Jesus, and says, “God is worthy of our worship.” We thank you for those men and women that have secured and protected our freedom and liberty. Make sure they are seen and honored for their sacrifices. Finally, we thank you for that precious freedom, which only You can ultimately give us through Christ Jesus, our Lord. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Lord will exalt America, because God is being exalted in this nation publicly by our President and those in the highest authority.

God’s Honor Can Shift the National Atmosphere

We are going to take the keys to the Kingdom of God and we are going to change the atmosphere over this nation. It may take six months or a year. We don’t care. We are going to break division, strife, and racism off this nation. We are going to see those with pure and humble hearts rise. We are going to see the Supreme Court rise into a righteous group of people that do not legislate, but honor the Constitution and honor God. We are going to see a President who honors God and His Wisdom above his own human intelligence. God, let the atmosphere shift!

“The Lord declares: ‘Far be it from me, for those who honor me I will honor, and those who despise me shall be lightly esteemed.’” (1 Samuel 2:30b; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Commit to pray daily for the United States of America – for division, strife, and racism to end.
  • Go out of your way to be kind to others, especially those you disagree with.
  • Thank the Lord that He exalts and honors the humble and pure of heart.
  • Thank God for Justice Neil Gorsuch and pray for an even greater God-honoring shift in the Supreme Court.
  • Intercede for President Trump to begin to openly honor the Lord!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I want to partner with You in prayer in greater measure than I have been. I want to press in, not relax. My friends and I will push in prayer, like it’s time for a baby to be born! Show me how to put action to my prayers until I am able to face the enemies of the Gospel with peace and grace and love, regardless of how they are acting. Let a culture of honor rise up in me and across the Body of Christ, in the Supreme Court, and in our President. As we honor You, we trust that Your Word will be made manifest and You will give great favor to the one that honors You. Then, wee will watch the nation’s atmosphere shift! In Jesus’ wonderful name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Will of the Lord is to raise up those who honor Him, so let the honor begin!
