Suddenlies For A Generation to be Reckoned

Giants are about to be slain. This generation will stand on the head of their enemies. This generation’s children will be saved because of the overturning of a law. They will become a force to be reckoned with against the kingdom of darkness. A double portion anointing is coming on this generation and they will not allow giants to walk around. They are going to go after the giants on behalf of their children.  They are going to honor the generation before them, which paved the way with their prayers and tears. They are going to come in and pick up where the former generation left off and the suddenlies are going to increase. There are some suddenlies coming to our government. There is a suddenly coming to the Supreme Court. There will suddenly be a vacancy. Suddenly, laws are going to change. Hearts are going to change.  (An anonymous intercessor.)

“I declared the former things long ago, and they went forth from My mouth, and I proclaimed them. Suddenly I acted, and they came to pass.” (Isaiah 48:3; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede for the generation coming up behind you. If you’re 60, pray for those 50-60. If you’re 40, pray for those 30-40, etc. Bless them.
  • Pray for that same group that they will be bold and pray strategic prayers for their children’s sake. Ask God to give them great favor and great answers to their prayers.
  • Call for the “suddenly” answers to prayer for America.
  • Say, “The Supreme Court will suddenly shift! Vacancy, open up!”
  • Say, “The political blockades against President Trump will now suddenly shift!”
  • Declare that righteous laws are going to be passed and solidified by the Supreme Court.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I pray for the generation coming up behind me. I bless them. I will not judge them, because they act and think differently than I do. I will believe the best about them and trust You to use their prayers to expand Your Kingdom in this nation. Put their children on their heart, those generations that will follow them. Help us all to intercede for this nation, thinking about the kind of nation we want to leave for those coming up behind us. Give us suddenly answers to our prayers! We say, “The Supreme Court will suddenly shift! Vacancy, open up! The political blockades against President Trump will now suddenly shift!” We declare that You are going to shift the leadership of this nation, and the justices on the Supreme Court, until righteous laws and plans that please You are sure to come to pass. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.

Today’s decree:

God’s suddenlies are coming to shift the U.S. government and the Supreme Court.

Using God’s Keys

“We carry Kingdom keys. With those keys, we can declare things like the locking of abortion clinics all over this nation. We can declare that there will be an unlocking of that which will bring healing to the spiritual matrix of this nation. America will birth its covenant purposes in this generation. Our prayers join with the prayers of the generations that went before us—prayers of the generations that plead the blood of Jesus over the sins of our nation. The Holy Spirit revealed things to them to pray and they prayed from their place of revelation. We can now join with those prayers and pray prayers of revelation that declare righteousness over this generation. We can declare redemption over this nation. God hears these prayers. He empowers these prayers, and He shows us how to use them as keys to lock and unlock spiritual doors and gates to align this nation so He can bless it.” (Various National Prayer Leaders)

“And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you forbid on earth will be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven.” (Matthew 16:19; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord! Glorify His Name! He is worthy of our worship! See the canopy of worship all the praying and worshipping saints are creating today over this nation!
  • Be conscious of the prayers of the saints who have prayed before us. Humbly thank the Lord for their prayers and the revelation they carried forward to us.
  • Ask the Lord to show you how to pray His perfect will into this land using His Word, His Kingdom keys.
  • Intercede regarding an issue you know is dear to His heart and which will bring His glory to our country.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we believe You are creating a canopy of Your Glory over America as Your Church prays. You are glorified in and through our prayers. We glorify You and lift You high over our nation! We join the generations of Believers who have prayed for this country ahead of us. We honor them, even as they honored You, Lord. Reveal to us how to pray to accomplish Your perfect will. Show us what keys to use, what scriptures to use, to turn the enemy’s activities back. We use Your Kingdom keys to pray things that touch Your heart, such as to defund and close abortion clinics. We use them to open strategies of morality and adoption. We say that this is the generation that will walk in purity and honor God such as we have never seen in our lifetimes. This generation will keep covenant with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will use God’s Kingdom keys to glorify God over America!

Turning from Baal Worship

“The Ekklesia is rising to take the authority of the King against the Spirit of Baal that afflicts our nation, especially at the governmental level. We are going to take authority over the blinding rage it expresses to the point of causing death. We will not sacrifice to this spirit any longer. We can not participate in Baal worship that tolerates the killing of babies in the womb. Our nation must be loosed from the spirit of abortion. We cannot turn a blind eye to the exaltation of Baal, which causes racial division and strife. We must walk in the agape love of God toward others. We say there is a tipping point of God’s goodness and love being poured out in this nation now through the Church. There is an abundance of mercy and an abundance of grace coming to America, as we worship Jesus Christ and Him alone!” (Multiple national prayer leaders.)

“I brought you into a bountiful country, to eat its fruit and its goodness. But when you entered, you defiled My land and made My heritage an abomination. The priests did not say, ‘Where is the Lord?’ And those who handle the law did not know Me; the rulers also transgressed against Me; the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.” (Jeremiah 2:7-8; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Let this be a day of humbling ourselves in repentance and remembrance of the goodness of the Lord toward us. Draw close to Him and He will draw near to you.
  • Ask the Lord to open your eyes to see how worshipping other gods, exalting earthly idols, and tolerating the death structures around us is corrupting the Church and the nation. We are empowering Baal. Identificationally repent.
  • Stand up and declare the the Body of Christ is going to learn to take authority over the Baal structures. We will not tolerate them. In fact, we will boldly expose them.
  • Say, “God of covenant, Repairer of the Breach, come and heal America! Deliver us from abortion, the shedding of innocent blood, and racial division and hatred.”
  • Declare to the giant of hate and racial divide that flows from the political mountain, “You must fall and give way to the covenant Christ has given us.”

A prayer you can pray:

“Lord, it doesn’t take physical eyesight to see division in our land. We can see it. But 5,000 years ago, You told the prophet Isaiah that there would be a repairer of the breach. We call forth the Repairer of the Breach. We thank You that You are the Repairer of the Breach. We declare that the Body of Christ walks in that anointing. We declare that we are the repairers of the breach. You are the Father of promise and the Father of covenant. In Psalm 133 it says, ‘How blessed it is when your people dwell together in unity. It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard of Aaron. It is like the dew coming down on Mount Hermon. In that there is blessing—life forevermore.’ We speak to the giant that would stand in the way of covenant, the covenant You have given us. To the giant of hate and racial divide that flows from the political mountain, we say, ‘You must fall and give way to the covenant Christ has given us.’ In Jesus name, amen.” (Various intercessors)

Today’s decree:

God’s goodness and mercy will save the repentant Church of America!

Agape Love and Prayer Will Govern Us

“In 2018, there were more ups and downs than we could have imagined. From the Supreme Court controversy which accelerated the sanctity of life debate, to the hair-raising midterm elections that sparked excessive strife, to the increasing pressures surrounding border security, the heat is on. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Interestingly enough, in the heat of the moment, most of America agrees with our president; national security is a major concern. Many also support his leadership for sanctity of life, no taxpayer dollars funding abortion, improving our economy, lower unemployment rates and higher economic growth rate, and his international gains.

As we move through 2019, with the March for Life and the Martin Luther King week ahead of us, please be encouraged to mend fences and build bridges. Agape love and prayer should be allowed to govern us; and we must not allow ourselves to be divided by politics. Let this be a year of overcoming crimes against humanity such as racism and abortion; not color blind, but with eyes wide open. Remember, love and prayer brought us through 2018 and will be needed this year, and must continue on into 2020 when we start the next round of elections.” (Dr. Alveda King)

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” (Matthew 5:9-12; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede for President Trump. Use Alveda’s words above to help you pray for national security, the sanctity of life, defunding of abortion in America and internationally, and for a continuing strong economy.
  • Intercede for the March for Life on January 18th. If you are in the Washington, D.C. area, or close enough to drive in, consider participating. Your local area might be hosting a March for Life, as well.
  • Ask God to let this be a year of overcoming crimes against humanity such as racism and abortion. Repent of any areas in your heart and mind that don’t line up with God’s Word on these matters. Pray for any family members you have that operate out of a place of racism or disregard for life.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we lift up President Donald J. Trump to you today. Thank you for giving us a very bold President who believes in protecting the American people and protecting the unborn. We ask that all public funding for abortion in America, as well as funds set aside for international abortions would cease. We ask that President Trump would continue to work to strengthen our economy, so citizens have an increasingly better standard of living. We join together in prayer for the National March for Life on January 18th in Washington, D.C., and other locations across the nation. Protect those who are walking and praying for the ending of abortion in the U.S.A. Free our nation from the death culture abortion brings in. End racism, as well.  Help every Believer to have Your heart for one another, regardless of race, economic background, or denominational preference. Help us be an example of the agape love You have for those who don’t yet know You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Church in America will choose to walk in agape love and truth, and refuse to let Satan divide us!

Legacy-sized Miracles and Harvest

“The Bible says that a good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children. We should all be asking ourselves, ‘When I pass away, what kind of a legacy will I leave?’ We should be asking God for a legacy-sized harvest of souls, and glorious, life-changing, manifestations of His Presence. Last year, many of us felt it was a year to possess the gates of the enemy. We can now look back and see that all around the world, captives were set free. Pastor Andrew Brunson was held captive in Turkey. He was set free. Asia Bibi, a young Christian woman in Pakistan was on death row and she was set free. Over and over we could say the gates opened. Tremendous gates opened. Suddenlies and acceleration was prophesied and we saw that. This year, that’s going to an extreme level. The Power of God is getting to ready to be visited on the Church on a much larger scale.” (Cindy Jacobs)

“Look among the nations, and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told.” (Habakkuk 1:5; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Can you believe that this is a year of extraordinary miracles?
  • Can you believe this is the year a profound harvest of souls begins?
  • Can you believe that God’s manifested Presence will be experienced this year?
  • What kind of a legacy are you believing God for?
  • What captives are you praying for to see them set free?
  • Pray about all of these things.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I believe this is a year we will see incredible miracles. We will see the beginning of a great harvest of souls. I so desire to see Your manifested Presence in and through my life. I want to see the Church manifesting miracle, signs and wonders, which glorify and lead people to Jesus. May the goodness of God be seen in America. May the rich legacy of the inheritance of the saints be realized, which is to know Christ and make Him known. (Pray for captives you know who need to be set free and introduced to Jesus.) Amen, Lord. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Power of God is getting to ready to be visited on the Church on a legacy-creating scale.

Enough is Enough!

There are times when the enemy is empowered and even overplays his hand, so to speak. I believe that is happening today in America. I saw this word of encouragement from Bobby Connor and it spoke right into this season for America. Saints, it is time to press into Him and His Glory! “The Spirit of God is fanning the flame of discontentment within the hearts of many. We can’t remain satisfied and content with our lack of power and spiritual authority; a cry of desperation must burst forth: ‘Enough is enough!’ Ask yourself this question: ‘Am I willing to pay the price to seek the Lord for promotion?’ This will be a season of swift acceleration and advancement if we put God first. We are instructed to seek the Lord while He is near (see Isaiah 55:6). We are reminded that we only find the Lord when we search with all our heart (see Jeremiah 29:12-13). If we make seeking Him and His Kingdom our top priority, He will take care of everything else (see Matthew 6:33). There is a wonderful grace offered for us to advance in the times of adversity! The invitation is extended to all saints; however, by a lack of commitment, many will disqualify themselves. This is a time to be desperate for the revealed glory of God. One of the marks of these overcomers will be hunger and complete dissatisfaction with business as usual. This holy hunger will drive us to seek the Lord on a much more increased level.” (Bobby Connor)

“Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:12-13; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Humble yourself before the Lord and worship Him.
  • Present yourself before Him and ask Him to cleanse your heart and mind. Invite His holy fire to clear away the chaff of the world so you are ready to fight His battles. This is where true spiritual authority comes from.
  • Consider a season of fasting and prayer soon, if you are not already fasting in this early season of the year. Dedicate a portion of time to come aside and passionately seek Him.
  • If you are not experiencing a deep hunger and thirst for Him, this is the time to ask Him for that. Our nation needs many hungry for God!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I humble myself before You today. I love You and I want to love You more. I want to be burning for You (Worship Him for a bit.) I need the fire of Your Presence to come and burn away all of the thoughts and feelings I have about the things around me. I get passionate about the wrong things. I want my thoughts to line up with Yours. I want my emotions to line up with Yours. I want to love what You love and hate what You hate. I want to look around me and see as You see. Lord, I want to express Your manifest Glory in the earth everywhere that I go, and with every prayer that I pray. May the darkness around me be pushed back, because You indwell me. Let me be constantly cognizant of You. Change my worship, change my life, change my prayers, change my decrees. May all of my prayers and actions be pleasing in Your eyes, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Enough is enough!

Living in Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus said in Mark 16, “Go preach the Gospel…” The word “preach” in this verse means to announce, or publish. But Jesus uses a completely different word in Matthew 28. There, he says “teach” which means to teach principles. What if the Church was living that? We could work together as churches across a city or county to elect Believers to all kinds of positions. We could be elected to city boards and govern according to the instruction in God’s Word. A motivated congregation that is praying for their schools could put forth candidates for a local school board, win their elections, and rule their school board by biblical principles. (This has actually happened in some places!) This is one way Believers can stop the flow of iniquity and unrighteousness that may be in our cities. And when the people of God are elected, may they be living righteously so as not to bring reproach on our Lord.

“Be an example for the believers in your speech, your conduct, your love, faith, and purity.” (1 Timothy 4:12b; GNT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Stop and think for a moment how those who govern your city, school board, county and state are doing. Are they Christians? Use the internet to find out who they are and pray for them by name.
  • Learn about what your city council does, decisions your school board makes, and what your county commissioners do. Does your city have volunteer boards, such as a Parks Board, Economic Development Board, Library Board, etc? Prayerfully consider volunteering. Start attending some of the meetings and pray onsite with insight.
  • Talk to your pastor about getting prayer groups together to pray for government, from the local level to the national level.
  • Take the responsibility and ask the Lord for a strategy to involve your church in city governmental prayer activities.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, today I want to talk with You about my local government. What would you like me to know. Teach me what I need to research and understand, so I can be effective in interceding for my city council members, school board officials, county commissioners, emergency responders, etc. I don’t know why I have never thought of them before, when the decisions they make impact my life and the life of my family so much. As I pray for them, show me if there is some way I can be involved in prayer and in action. Is there a board where my gifts would be helpful? Is there an office you would like me to run for? Use me to stir up prayer for government in my church and community. I am willing. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

We will pray, we will act, we will instruct, and by God’s grace, we will bring a righteous atmosphere to America!

Getting Past the Religious Structures

I feel like God is about to awaken denominations and streams and tell them, “You are stuck in the past.” He’s going to shift the thinking of religious people. There are some doctrinal things that should not be. Church government structures, thoughts on eschatology, these things are keeping us apart. We should be able to reach across our doctrinal differences and work together, if our basic theology is true to the Word of God. John the Baptist said, “He must increase. I must decrease.” We, the Church, are here to make Him known, not ourselves or our denominational doctrines. We are here to expand His Kingdom in the earth, not build our own. We must pray that the Church does Matthew 28:18-20, not just Mark 16 during this next outpouring.

“He must increase, but I must decrease. He who comes from above is above all, he who is of the earth is from the earth and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all.” (John 3:30-31; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede for the leaders of the Body of Christ across all denominations. Pray that they would be prompted by the Holy Spirit to look at whether doctrinal differences are keeping them from working together with other members of the Church.
  • Decree, “He must increase and we, His children, His servants, must decrease.”
  • Ask the Lord to stir the Church to pray for all segments of society, especially government.
  • Pray leaders equip the saints to share the Gospel where they work and have influence.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I pray for all of the leaders in the church, across all denominational lines. I love them all, Lord, and I so desire that we would be one, even as You are One. Your Word says that the world will drawn to Jesus by the love we have for one another, but so often our doctrinal differences keep us apart. Certain things, such as the way we conduct church services or how we dress, or even arguments over when and how You will return, are not things that should keep us apart. Those things are not as important to salvation. Help us to put our prideful ideas aside! You must increase and we must decrease. We must stop trying to be seen, and exalt You, Jesus, instead! We have to reach the world, in all those places You send us every day. We must go into the harvest fields – government, education, arts and entertainment, media, etc. Show our leaders how to follow Matthew 28:18-20 and equip the saints to pray and go into these harvest fields. Grant us grace and influence, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

There is a humility coming to the American Church that is motivating us to work together to expand God’s Kingdom in the nation.

Let the Congregation Make a Petition

Can you imagine congregants asking their pastors the following questions? Pastor, why don’t we pray for the government more? Can we pray for the President today? Could we intercede for life today? Pastor, can we pray for our city council members? It could get pretty uncomfortable for leaders if we start doing that. Congregants are going to start realizing, “We don’t pray for these things. Why don’t we do this?” I’ve been asking the Lord, “What do we need to do for this shift to take place?” I’ve been asking the Lord to give favor to some who have a broader voice than I have, who could speak to many streams, who could suddenly tap into this. We need those to rise up who can start writing and teaching and crossing denominational streams. We need Baptists and Assembly of God leaders, and many others with influence.

“Never speak harshly to an older man, but appeal to him respectfully as you would to your own father. Talk to younger men as you would to your own brothers.” (1 Timothy 5:1; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • With humility, pray for your pastors and those in authority over you that they will have a heart to pray for government and governmental leaders.
  • Ask the Lord for grace and favor to discuss this in a respectful manner with your senior leader. Ask them the questions above or similar ones.
  • Pray for leaders to tap into this who have influence across denominational streams. Intercede for them to start speaking and writing on this topic, so pastors, leaders, and congregants can be on the same page.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, stir in me a heart to pray for government and government leaders. Help me to have revelation in this realm of prayer the Church so often ignores. With some of us on both sides of the political aisle, we are afraid to offend one another, but Your Word is the place we can keep going back to for our standard and direction. Stir up the congregants to speak to pastors about this. Stir up the pastors to fearlessly ask congregants to pray for government and government leaders. Stir up national-level leaders to speak and write on this topic with an anointing to cross denominational barriers. Get Your Church in unity in this area, Lord. It may matter for the harvest. It certainly matters for the peace we desire to live in and to raise our families in. In Jesus’ name, we ask. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is placing favor on congregants and leaders in the Body of Christ to stir prayer for government in this nation!

The Pastors’ Responsibility

I once had a heart to heart discussion with a friend of mine who is the pastor of a large congregation. I asked him, following an election, how he encouraged the congregation to vote. I said, “How did you prepare the people? Did you challenge them to vote for life and justice? Did you ask them to pray? Did you hold prayer times for the government, as scripture teaches us?” He pastors in a place where there are a lot of union workers. It’s very politically diverse with members of both parties in his congregation. So, I asked how he handled this and what he did. He said, “Why would I defile what God’s doing by talking about government and politics?” This is part of the problem. Government is not evil. Politics has gotten evil. The political system is evil in some ways, not in every way. However, God is government. God works through government. God said to pray for government and those who govern us. We have a church in America that says to leave all that alone and God will take care of that. We’re just supposed to get people saved and then disciple them. But, that’s not scriptural. Doing Matthew 28:18-20 is going to require a huge shift if the Church is going to start making any kind of progress. I think God is going to start making pastors really uncomfortable. He is going to start convicting them, because they are not thinking this way. People in the congregation are going to start hearing these things and they will ask their pastors why their church is not discipling government and other areas of the culture.

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 1:1-4; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede for 1 Timothy 1:1-4 to be embraced by pastors and others in positions to lead the Body of Christ.
  • Pray for the revelation of those verses to sink in to the Church—being able to freely share the Gospel can be dependent on the governmental leaders in place.
  • Say, “God is government. Earthly government must come into alignment with Him and His plans.”
  • Pray for the Church to rise up and make a respectful demand on their leadership for prayer times for government. We need to pray for elections and legislation, Supreme Court appointments and other governmental decisions. This pleases the Lord.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we pray 1 Timothy 1:1-4, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. We pray that our pastors receive a revelation of this by the Holy Spirit. God is government. Earthly government must come into alignment with Him and His plans. Let our leaders encourage us to pray for our government leaders and other governmental matters. Let them give service time to this and appoint those in the congregation who have a passion for this to lead us. Holy Spirit, give this sae revelation to the Body of Believers get this, as well. Let this come from both directions, so that we begin to do what the Word command us to do in praying for government. The harvest may well depend on it! In Jesus’ name, we pray, amen.

Today’s decree:

America’s pastors will begin to lead their congregations in prayer for government and government leaders.
