Each Doing Their Part

The Retracing the Covenant Tour was birthed from a place of unity. There is a synergy that we can tap into when we all do our part from that place of unity. For example, the prophetic word that launched the Tour was given at a Glory of Zion meeting by Chuck Pierce. It was received and embraced by Dutch Sheets. He declared that we would go as an army— some would go and some would send, but we would all pray. Many individuals and prayer networks have been praying at key sites throughout this year, reclaiming our nation for the Lord. The team itself tapped into some amazing unity, but in addition, thanks to social media, we had a sense of the many who were “going” with us. One such time, we were praying in a circle besides the National Monument of the Forefathers. I had received a text from 3 intercessors who had been praying for us the night before and saw us united and singing the Doxology in that very spot. I shared that and we sang, and one of the men saw angels being released throughout the nation. Thank you for doing your part for the tour! (Terri Brown)

“For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.” (Romans 12:4-5; ESV) “That together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 15:6; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for the unity that is growing in the Church in America. Many diverse Christian groups are praying together for the future of America.
  • Intercede that this unity is just a beginning and will grow and mature in years to come. Pray it will not dissipate after the elections.
  • Ask the Lord what your part is now and going forward to expand the influence of Hs Kingdom in the earth.
  • Pray specifically for Dutch Sheets and the Retrace the Covenant Team members, that God will grace them with rest and continued power in prayer.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we have seen that you are increasing unity in the Body of Christ. Many Believers across many Christian backgrounds are seeking You with great passion, so desirous of change in the nation—a turning of hearts to you. We want laws that are God-honoring and we must turn the enemy back at the gate! Let the unity we are seeing now extend past the elections, as the elections are only a beginning to get us where this nation needs to go. Show me, Lord, what you want me to pray and do going forward. We also pray that You would refresh and encourage Dutch Sheets and his team. May their prayers continue to have power in this nation. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

Each Believer doing our part to pray for the future of our nation in humble unity with one another will result in God’s will being done in America!

From These Shores the Gospel Shall Go Forth

In 1606, the Susan Constant sailed from England to the New World. Landing at Cape Henry, Pilgrim chaplain Robert Hunt declared, “from these very shores the Gospel shall go forth to not only this New World, but the entire world”. While we don’t look for a savior in any political personality or system, the Bible advocates good government, because it will allow the word of the Lord to run swiftly. Isaiah 32:1-8 is primarily a millennial passage but there are applications for today. These verses should be prayed and declared for our own government. Whenever righteous government is in place, the word of the Lord moves swiftly through the land, is understood, and is glorified.

America is not God’s answer to all the world’s problems, but the freedoms this nation has protected for hundreds of years have allowed us to send missionaries to the ends of the earth with the REAL answer. It is imperative for Christians to engage in the political process to conserve the liberties that are subtly threatened in today’s geopolitical environment. (Kelsey Bohlender)

“Behold, a king will reign righteously and princes will rule justly. Each will be like a refuge from the wind and a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry country, like the shade of a huge rock in a parched land. Then the eyes of those who see will not be blinded, and the ears of those who hear will listen.” (Isaiah 32:1-3; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that the Lord would grace us with a righteous government to be established in America.
  • Ask the Lord for a President-elect who respects and defends religious liberties.
  • Intercede on behalf of the nation, that His covenant with this land would be renewed and the Gospel would go forth from American shores in greater measure than ever before!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we ask for a righteous government to be established in America. We realize You are working with men and women who may not know You as their personal Savior, but we know You can turn their hearts like a watercourse and cause their decisions to be just and righteous. We ask for a President and other elected officials who will govern this way, as well as protect our religious liberties, so that we can continue to expand the Kingdom in the earth. Lord, send us in greater numbers and power than ever before form these shores to the nations of the earth! We want to glorify You, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We choose to elect leaders who will rule the United States of America with justice and righteousness, pleasing the Lord, so that Believers can be free to expand His Kingdom to all the nations of the earth from these shores.

Root of Mercy

“I have tapped into the root of mercy.” That moving phrase rang forth from Dutch in the dream of a Colorado intercessor. Just 3 days prior to the “Retrace the Covenant Tour”, while watching the Appeal to Heaven Conference online, a prophetic pastor in Missouri saw coins raining down all around Dutch. On each coin was imprinted the word MERCY. While standing ankle deep in coins, Dutch looked up and said, “Mercy is our new currency.” Fulfilling a prophetic word to visit 7 cities in 7 days, our team embraced the language of mercy as we traveled the east coast, retracing the covenant our forefathers made with God in the founding of America. (Kelsey Bohlender)

“The LORD your God is a merciful God. He will not abandon you, destroy you, or forget the promise to your ancestors that he swore he would keep.” (Deuteronomy 4:31; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Get down on your knees, place your hands on the ground and thank the Lord for the deep root of His mercy toward your life and toward this nation. Thank Him that He has not abandoned us in our sin and iniquity, but He is merciful, holding back judgement in honor of His covenant with our forefathers and hearing the intercession of His Saints.
  • Reinforce the mercy cry of those 7 days by crying out again today, “Have mercy on America, Son of David!”
  • Act on this by expressing love, kindness, grace and mercy everywhere you go today. Watch what happens as you open the floodgates of mercy in this land.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we are thankful for your mercy to us in the United States of America. We deserve judgement for our iniquitous national choices and actions, but you have responded with mercy instead. We are overwhelmed with Your love and grace. We ask that mercy would triumph over judgement in our nation. Have mercy on America, Son of David!
Let us not retaliate in fear and anger to challenging situations, but rather, grace us to show forth Your kindness and mercy each day, spreading Your love throughout this land. In Jesus’ merciful name, we pray. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Mercy will triumph over judgement in America as God honors the covenant He made with our forefathers and as we remember Him!

GH15 is joining in a national call to prayer before the 2016 Elections:

As One – A National Appeal to Heaven
40 Days of Prayer Walking the Nation

Here is Today’s Focus:

News Media

With the explosion of the Internet in the late 90s and the creation of mobile devices that now allow unlimited access to Internet data and news around the world, Americans literally have endless information at their fingertips. To know what is happening across the globe at the push of a button is now normal to us. However, with the great inundation of information there have also come more opinions, propaganda, and exaggeration in the reporting of news. As believers, we have a great responsibility to shape the culture around us and literally change the news that happens around our nation. Pray that the news media will be flooded with the influence of Christ. Pray that broadcasts, reporters, websites, and online reports will be filled with integrity. Pray that believers will seek out useful information in the news that will help them to pray more effectively for the circumstances impacting our nation and our world. Pray that God would give believers discernment as they watch the news and help them to be guided by His Spirit. Pray that the news media will not use fear tactics nor exaggerations in their reporting to gain better ratings or increase their profits. Pray that broadcasters will use their influence with pure motives and not for selfish gain. Pray that all corruption and falsehood would be replaced with the truth and authenticity of Christ.

Today’s Passages:

Colossians 3:17

“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Reformation Day

Some of you are participating in Halloween today, but did you know it is Reformation Day? This is the day that Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of All Saints Church in Wittenberg, Germany, in 1517 – almost 500 years ago today—and the Protestant reformation began. Now, that’s something to celebrate! While certainly long before the United States of America was in existence, it began the battle for religious freedom that prompted many to come to America’s shores—escaping religious oppression. That freedom of religion is a very precious and foundational right to Americans and it is being threatened more every day.

“Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” (2 Corinthians 3:17; NIV)

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (John 8:36; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord that the Constitution of the United States guarantees the free exercise of religion in America.
  • Repent on behalf of government leaders at the federal and state levels who are attempting to restrict religious freedom in America. Ask the Lord to forgive us as a nation for again rejecting Him and attempting to remove Him from U.S. society.
  • Cry out to God for His presence and to help us know how to pray and what to do to maintain our freedom of religion in this nation.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we thank you that America’s establishment document, the Constitution of the United States of America, guarantees us the freedom to worship You without government intrusion. Lord, there are government leaders who desire to restrict our freedom of worship to the four walls of the church and to fully remove You from the rest of society. Forgive us as a nation for this mindset. We look to You and You alone to reverse this trend and secure our ability to worship You anywhere we want, any time we want and in any way that is pleasing to You! Show us how to pray and what to do to maintain and increase our freedom of worship in America. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

We will freely worship the Lord everywhere, all the time and in every situation across this nation!

As One – A National Appeal to Heaven
40 Days of Prayer Walking the Nation

Here is Today’s Focus:

Media

(Radio, Television, Print, and Internet)

The impact of all forms of media in the American culture cannot be overemphasized. Whether it is the print media (newspapers and magazines), television, radio, or the rapidly spreading influence of the Internet and all forms of social networking, media should be an object of our daily prayers. This is why you will see this on our daily list for focused prayer as one of the “seven spheres of influence.” Today we will take added time to concentrate our prayers specifically on this vital focus. Pray that God will use publishers of newspapers and magazines as well as Internet websites to report in such a manner that is ethically and morally sound. Ask that God will redeem the media to advance His Kingdom. Claim the same for the television industry. Ask that God will continue to use radio in a significant way to spread the Gospel globally. Especially pray for the growing influence of the Internet and social networking. Pray against the spread of pornography on the Internet and that God will cause those who “surf” the Internet to come upon godly websites that draw them to salvation in Jesus Christ.

Today’s Passage:

Ephesians 2:1-7

“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.”

Relief:

Removal or lightening of something oppressive, painful, or distressing; things that are given to help people who are victims

2 Thessalonians 1:5-7 (NIV)

“All this is evidence that God’s judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering. God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels.”

PRAY:

In so many ways, Jesus, you have brought me relief through your grace, and I thank you. I pray that you would draw near to your people this election season and use us to bring your relief to the world around us. May our votes and our participation in this election affect relief, especially for those who are experiencing oppression, pain or distress. Make us your relief for victims in our world today.

Here is Today’s Focus:

Justice

(The Courts and Judges of America)

Justice is defined as “the upholding of what is just, especially fair treatment in accordance with honor, standards, or law.” It is to “treat adequately, fairly, or with full appreciation.” The judicial branch of the government is clearly an influential authority in America. Their decisions touch the life of every citizen and, when functioning properly, help protect individuals from exploitation, settle disputes, and punish criminals who break the law. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you areas in your own nation or community where justice is desperately needed. Pray specifically for areas of the government that you know to be lacking in administering true justice to people. As followers of Jesus we should be model citizens who, “Defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy; free them from the hand of the wicked” (Psalm 82:3-4, NKJV). Pray that God will raise up more Christian judges and lawyers in America who are guided by honesty and truth.

Today’s Passage:

Proverbs 2:1-9

“My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding—indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. Then you will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path.”

Steadfastness:

Firmly fixed in place; not subject to change; firm in belief, determination, or adherence

Hebrews 6:19-20 (NKJV)

“This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”

PRAY:

Jesus, I praise you today for your steadfastness. I thank you that regardless of the outcomes of this election, we have your hope to anchor our souls, sure and steadfast. No matter the policies or leaders put in place this November, we can trust in the steadfastness of your kingdom and your sovereignty. I pray that you would remind your people of your steadfastness as we participate in the political arena this year.
