Parking the Ark

Some of us understand the 90 days of Obed-Edom. We were privileged to host the Lord’s Presence and 90 days of worship in 2008 and we talked a lot about Obed-Edom. I think what God showed me more than anything through that season was that Obed-Edom’s household hosted His glory for 90 days before David and the rest of the people could get on board with what God was saying and doing. God didn’t want fanfare then and He doesn’t want it now. God’s looking for places He can park the ark!

“Have the people of Israel build me a holy sanctuary so I can live among them.” (Exodus 25:8; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship Him and tell Him you want His Presence to abide where you are. You are the first place He wants to park His Presence.
  • Pray that the Ekklesia will “get it” and desire His Presence all across America – in their homes and churches and other meeting places.
  • Ask Him if He would like you to gather others together to seek Him together. Think outside the box. Your basement is good enough. The community center at your apartment complex is good enough. You place of business, if you own your own business, is good enough. How about a park or school classroom or other unusual space.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I want Your Presence here. I will worship You until Your Presence is tangible where I am! (Worship Him a while.) This can’t just stay with individuals, although we are to be the first place Your Presence is hosted. The Ekklesia who are seeking the ark must gather together with others and seek You, spreading Your Presence everywhere we go. If there is a place I can gather others for worship, show it to me. I am willing to think outside the church box and into the community. Come, Lord Jesus, to America! Come!

Today’s decree:

We will build You a holy sanctuary so You can live right where we are.

Veterans Day – A Day of Honor

“The hero is the man dedicated to the creation and/or defense of reality-conforming, life-promoting values.” (Andrew Bernstein)

“Better than honor and glory, and History’s iron pen, was the thought of duty done and the love of his fellow-men.” (Richard Watson Gilder)

Our veterans are dear to Americans’ patriotic hearts. We acknowledge their sacrifices and those of their families in times of war. They have marched bravely to the battlefield and mostly won, sometimes lost, those battles. However, have you ever realized that these men and women create and defend life-promoting values? Of course, they do! They are fighting for our lives! Today, we celebrate their lives and express our love and gratitude to them!

“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” (Romans 12:10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for every veteran by name that you know.
  • Pray for all veterans that God would bless them with health and wholeness. Pray that every need they have would be met in Christ Jesus.
  • Intercede for the salvation of these veterans. Pray that the horrors they have seen on the battlefield will not cause them to push God away.
  • Now, go out and do something loving and kind for a veteran today.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I thank you for (name the veterans you know.) I pray that you would bless them with whole bodies and minds. They often suffer so greatly. Let them know they are loved by You, Lord. We ask that you would present Your Son to them in supernatural ways. Let Your love for them override the pain and mental anguish of battle. Show me how to bless veterans today, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We honor those who fight for our freedom and our lives—our nation’s veterans!

Determining Your Preappointed Boundaries

“The Apostle Paul stood up in front of a group of philosophers in a pagan city and preached this amazing message found in Acts 17:26, “God has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings so that they should seek the Lord…” You were chosen and appointed to live in a particular time and place; the boundaries of your nation were set from before the beginning of time in order that man might seek and find the Lord! Your attitude and in fact your involvement as an intercessor and Spirit-filled Christian in and toward the purposes of God in your nation is a major part of your own spiritual destiny and inheritance.”1 (Sid Roth)

God be merciful to us and bless us, and cause Your face to shine upon us, that Your way may be known on earth, and Your salvation among all nations. Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You. Oh, let the nations be glad and sing for joy! For You shall judge the people righteously, and govern the nations on earth.” (Psalm 67:1-4)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray Psalm 67:1-4.
  • Thank the Lord that He has “preappointed your boundaries.” This means it is no accident that you live where you live. Thank Him for the city you live in, the state, the region (the part of America you identify with—Northeast, South, Eastern Seaboard, Midwest, West, Mountain States, Southwest, West Coast, Northwest, etc.) Thank Him that you have an assignment in that region. Ask Him what it is!
  • Ask the Lord to connect you with others that pray in your city, state and region. Think beyond your local church. Do a little research and find a group you can join that is praying in the area of your assignment as you understand it from the Lord. You might get on their email list or find they have a conference call you can jump in on. Or, make you own and start building your prayer tribe.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, as I pray Psalm 67:1-4, I praise You and thank You that You are the Judge over all and You govern the nations with righteousness! As Your child, I get to govern together with You by interceding together with others and setting the spiritual atmosphere over my city, state, region and nation. You have set the boundaries of that governance by positioning me in the place that I live. Help me to find those who are praying for my areas of influence, so that I can join them and we can together make a difference in our part of the nation. In Jesus’ name, amen!

Today’s decree:

My spiritual boundaries were preappointed by the Lord and I will accept the assignment given by Him to intercede for the area He has placed me in!

The Great Unravelling

“For a while now the Lord has been showing Jolene a progressive vision featuring a huge, tangled ball of string. The string represents the high-level entanglements and corruption of a few key leaders in Washington, D.C., involving abuse of power, high level intentional deception and even sex abuse. In short, betrayal. Jolene’s been praying over this vision for months. And for months she’s been saying that the string of these entanglements is too tightly wound up here to unwind it only from Washington, D.C. Instead, it has to be unwoven from the outer ends. The Lord showed her that’s a major reason why we are sent from D.C. to minister, including on the Glory Train journey. Some of this simply can’t be accomplished so close to the source. For instance, Hollywood and Washington, D.C. are way intertwined. What’s now happening there is also beginning to happen here. At the very same time, only maybe at a lesser magnitude. But it’s going to happen. Because last night the Lord clearly spoke to Jolene the phrase, ‘the Great Unravelling.’” (Jon Hamill)1

“Don’t get involved with the fruitless works of darkness; instead, expose them to the light of God. You see, it’s a disgrace to speak of their secrets (so don’t even talk about what they do when no one is looking).” (Ephesians 5:11-12; VOICE)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • The first place a Believer should go when a season of exposure of sin is happening is to the throne of grace, as fast as we can get there. Let the fear of the Lord fall on you and confess every place of darkness He shows you, so it does not publicly get exposed.
  • Pray that everything God plans to expose now is exposed, especially in Hollywood, in the media, and in government. It is merciful and right.
  • Intercede for those whom the devil is seeking to destroy with sin. Ask God for a great harvest of souls, so the enemy will not have them forever.
  • Pray that the exposure of sin will result in a harvest, as those around the ones exposed see how the exposure affects their lives. Pray the fear of the Lord falls on them and they quickly repent.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I come boldly to the throne of grace and ask You to shine Your intense and holy light on my life and my heart. Put a guard on my mouth and thoughts. Keep my feet from stumbling into sin. Forgive me every iniquity. I can see this is a season of pulling the curtain back on sin, especially in Hollywood, in those in media, and in government arenas. I stand in the gap and ask that, though the darkness may need to be judged in the courts of the earth, the souls of those in the darkness would be saved. Let them encounter You. I ask the same for their family members, friends, and even the general public that has enamored them. Let them see what is happening and run to You for salvation before their own dark deeds are brought into the light. Thank you, merciful Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Great Unravelling will not be stopped until everything God plans to expose in this season is out in the light.

He’s looking for Pure-hearted Worshippers

God is looking for only one thing and that is the heart. He’s really not into worship. Does that surprise you? God doesn’t seek worship. Nowhere in scripture does it say He does. It says He seeks worshippers. It’s not the song that excites Him, it’s the singer. He’d rather have a glance from a loving countenance than a song sung by the greatest singer in the world, if it did not come from the heart. He’s into heart issues. He is finding a people all across this nation that have come back to basics. They don’t care about the fluff. They are hungry for Him – pure-hearted worshippers.

“But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.” (John 4:23; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Sit quietly before Him and ask Him what kind of worshipper you are. Let Him be honest with you. Don’t be afraid of what He’ll say. Repent, if you need to.
  • Ask Him to give you the heart of a worshipper, not given to perfection or performance, not caring what others think, but simply adoring Him.
  • Sing to Him a song from your heart without caring what it sounds like. Just sing Him a love song.
  • Go and show Jesus to someone who needs to see Him today. In this manner, by pure-hearted worshippers, shall our nation shall be changed.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I come before You today with my heart laid bare. Examine it, please. I want to be a worshipper, clean before You, clean and free to worship without hinderance or fear. Give me a clean heart. Remove performance and the fear of man from me. Accept my song of worship, coming from the new, clean heart You’re forming in me. Show me how to expand Your Kingdom by sharing this love with others around me. Help me to multiply myself into multitudes of new pure-hearted worshippers, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the day of the pure-hearted worshippers has come to America and now the miracles will begin.

The Revealing of His Glory Touches All Flesh

As His glory comes down and the Lord exalts Himself, He is going to bring down that which has opposed Him. We’re not to be alarmed at the feverish, resistance to what He is doing that is evident in this nation right now. The warfare is intense. The demons are manifesting, and they manifest in a lot of ways, including violence. Do not be discouraged! The Glory is returning! Those who have opposed Him will be dealt with and those who are welcoming Him in His way will be exalted.

“And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” (Isaiah 40:5; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Know that God has a plan to reveal His Glory.
  • Ask Him to see it and participate in it, rather than be one who resists it, politically or religiously.
  • Tell Him you want Him, for with Him comes His glory.
  • Pray for any you know who are resisting Him. They may be church attendees. They may be atheists or anything in between.
  • Spiritually arrest those who oppose Christ, who are opposing His people and His plan. Call them to repentance and salvation.
  • Worship Him.

A prayer you can pray:

God, You have always had a plan. You have protected Your plan and Your Name. You have always had a remnant. The ark even now is returning. The dance of David is even now taking place on the hillside outside of Jerusalem. The restoration of the Tabernacle of David is being accomplished even as we speak, and the ark of His Presence is about to manifest here and in the nations of the earth. You are going to show us manifestations of Your Glory in unique ways. Come, Lord, Jesus, come!

Today’s decree:

To the strongholds of darkness that have run the people of God and the prophets into caves, Baal and Jezebel, “He has dealt with you and He will deal with you. You will not silence the Elijahs and the Elishas, nor keep His Presence from our shores.”

Weep and Mourn and Call for the Watchmen

For some unknown reason, a man named Devin Patrick Kelley went to Sutherland Springs, TX, yesterday and opened fire on a church service at the First Baptist Church. He killed 26 people, including children and the pastor’s own daughter. About 20 additional congregants were wounded. This was the largest church shooting in our history, as far as we know. This happened in a tiny Texas town with about 400 residents. About 50 people attended a typical service at the church, which means almost all of them were involved. Chances are that every family in and around the town was touched by this tragedy. So many families are in pain today. We refuse to accept this type of violence as a new normal for this nation. We won’t accept attacks on our schools, houses of worship, neighborhoods or events. We will watch and we will pray.

“For this is what the sovereign master has told me: ‘Go, post a guard! He must report what he sees. When he sees chariots, teams of horses, riders on donkeys, riders on camels, he must be alert, very alert.’ Then the guard cries out: ‘On the watchtower, O sovereign master, I stand all day long; at my post I am stationed every night.’” (Isaiah 21:6-8; NET)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Weep with those who weep today. Let compassion drive your prayers.
  • Ask God to comfort the many family members and friends who have been affected by this tragedy.
  • Declare that the full explanation of this situation will be known.
  • Declare that the Believers in America will not give this nation over to the strategies of the enemy to cause fear and destruction.
  • Tell the Lord that you are willing to be a watchman, watching with Him over your city.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, my heart is breaking for the situation that occurred at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland, TX, yesterday. Comfort those who are mourning and in pain. We have had too many of these types of large-scale shootings lately. All the reasons seem different, but we know who is ultimately behind them all – Satan, our ancient foe. Lord, pull the curtains back on the full truth! We declare that we Christians will take their places as watchman over our realms of influence – our cities, schools, neighborhoods. I am signing up to be a watchman, watching with You, Jesus. Show me things I need to see. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I will stand all day long at my post and will not abandon the post You station me at through the night.

We Must Have Him!

The same glory that brings blessing and breakthrough, brings judgement. It happened to Uzzah, who was bringing the ark back into Jerusalem. He reached out and touched the ark when he thought it would topple over, and he died. David and the Israelites had presumptuously decided to carry the ark their way. I travel a lot trying to stir awakening, and I’m finding people everywhere I go that are crying out for His Presence. They are willing for the judgement to come. They must have His glory! We may have done things wrong in the past in this nation, even prostituted His glory. However, there comes a time when a remnant is crying out loudly enough that we want to carry His presence His way. We must have Him!

“In that day the LORD of hosts will be a crown of glory, and a diadem of beauty, to the remnant of his people.” (Isaiah 28:5; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Stir up a desire in yourself to be desperate for His Presence and glory.
  • Ask Him to forgive you and His Body for trying so many ways of their own to get Him to show up.
  • Pray for all the desperate ones across this nation who are crying out night and day for Him. Declare they will have Him in His power and glory!
  • Tell Him that He may come any way He wants, but “I must have You, Jesus!”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I stir myself up in my most holy faith and say, “I am desperate for You!” I know so many who are calling for You, all across America. Forgive us for trying to get You to show up in all kinds of man-made ways. Desperate people do desperate things. I pray for all the desperate ones tonight and ask that You do not judge us, Lord, but that You see our hearts’ cry and come to us. Show us Your glory, Jesus. I, personally, can’t wait any longer! I must have You!

Today’s decree:

I decree that we, the American Ekklesia, must have You, Jesus!

Not in MY City

“We have been closely following the news reports and websites promoting protests in major cities across the United States today, November 4, 2017. The focus of the protests is to promote the impeachment of President Trump. While they are planned as peaceful protests, past experience has shown that protests like these can become violent. Our job is to pray!” (Cindy Jacobs)1

This is especially important if you live in one of the major cities where the protests are planned:


“Be strong and courageous. Don’t tremble! Don’t be afraid of them! The LORD your God is the one who is going with you. He won’t abandon you or leave you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6; GWT) 

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Tell the Lord that you want to be a part of changing the spiritual atmosphere over your city.
  • Pray for peace and the Presence of God to hover over your city. Spend a few minutes in prayer for it.
  • Pray for at least 3 of the cities listed above with the same passion you would pray for your own city. Ask God for His peace. Tell the enemy he is not welcome to cause violence in the cities of America. Pray protection for the innocent ones.
  • Intercede to strengthen the Church in the cities above. What we sow, we reap.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I want to be more than someone sitting in a seat in church on Sunday. I want to be a part of those that watch over my city with You in prayer. Grace my city (name) with peace. Holy Spirit, hover over (name of your city. Pray your own words for your city for a few minutes. Do the same for 3 of the cities on the list above, as if they were your own city.) Satan, we seal off our nation’s cities to your wicked activities. I ask You, Jesus, for your supernatural peace and protection over these cities and their citizens. Strengthen the Church and reveal to us how You want us to work with You to enforce Your victories and expand Your Kingdom in America’s cities. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the cities of America are safe today from the actions of any radical groups that want to remove our President or otherwise create havoc.

Praying Spiritual Protection Over Our Cities

“A growing movement called ‘Refuse Fascism’ has been making headlines with threats of violence in 14 cities throughout the United States on Saturday, November 4, 2017 (Catholic Online, FulcrumZ3 News). Their plan is to stage protests against the Trump/Pence administration in hopes of removing them from office. Regardless of the severity of their threats or the actual numbers of followers in their cause, they represent an ongoing attempt to create fear and instability in the nation and stop those who are pursuing righteous government. Though there are specific cities targeted, it is a reminder that every community must stand their guard at the city gates through prayer and intercession. It is up to those who follow Christ to displace the plans of the enemy by securing the borders of their city and declaring God’s kingdom purposes. To equip intercessors and city leaders in this charge, use and share this Prayer Guide for Protection Over Cities. Through these prayer points, you can encourage unity in prayer and oneness of spirit so that Christ is glorified. Declare that God’s Presence would permeate your city to be a light on a hill that shines forth His glory.” (Intercessors for America (IFA))1

“You are the light of the world–like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Lift up praise and worship over your city.
  • Declare your home and community to be a dwelling place for God’s Presence.
  • Call for unity in the church and oneness of spirit among spiritual leaders.
  • Disarm any plans of the enemy to cause harm or injury to people or property.
  • Declare that the light of Truth will dispel any darkness and expose the lies.
  • Speak God’s blessings and protection over transportation and communication lines.
  • Pray for the Word of God and the message of the cross to be shared with power.
  • Thank God for His delivering power in defeating all His enemies.

A prayer you can pray:

(Follow the Prayer Guide’s points for prayer today. Or, pray through the list above.)

Today’s decree:

I decree that we are God’s children, and we have overcome the enemy desiring to operate against our cities and government, because the One in us is greater than the one who is in the world!
