Ramping Up for the Revamping of the Nation

America’s election of Donald Trump was a shout from many people that they did not like the direction the country was going. It was also an answer to many years of intercession by a Church that was waking up and praying and voting. Tomorrow, a flurry of activity will begin in which President Trump has stated he will begin rolling back some of former-President Obama’s actions. He will begin to institute his own ideas—ideas such as nominating a conservative Supreme Court Justice, restoring religious freedom, and revamping Obamacare. These things will take time, but Donald Trump will not hesitate to take action as quickly as he can.

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.” (Psalm 33:12; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray Proverbs 3:5-6 over the new President. The Amplified Bible says it this way, “Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight and smooth (removing obstacles that block your way.)”
  • Pray that President Donald Trump will seek the Lord before doing anything. His acknowledgement and honoring of God will ensure the blessing of the Lord on this nation.
  • Pray that men and women of God would be praying for him in church services across America today, thanking God for a President that will acknowledge God and desire to serve Him.
  • Ask the Lord to help he and his team prioritize the changes they want to make, so that things move forward smoothly and not in chaos.
  • Pray that communication will not be confused, but that he will be well-understood by his staff.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we ask that President Trump will lean on, trust in and rely on You and will not rely on his own understanding as he forms a plan for this nation’s movement forward. We pray that he would acknowledge Your guidance in his life, so that You can make this nation’s path smooth. Remove obstacles out of the way and heal the deep, dividing, emotional canyons we are seeing. Rally Your Church to intercede for the President daily. Show the White House administrative team what to prioritize, and keep chaos out of the mix. We pray that communication is not confused, so that the staff will clearly know what to do, how to do it and when to do it. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The nation that seeks the Lord will be blessed and we believe that is the case for this nation now!

Day of Rest and Day of Protest

The Inauguration is over and now the bold new administration can begin. However, today there will be a day or two of rest for President Trump and Vice President Pence. Events are planned where conveners would love the new President to make an appearance, but there is no guarantee he will be out and about. Right up the street, near the U. S. Capital, the Women’s March on Washington will take place. This protest was planned to be the “Million Woman March”, however, a maximum of 200,000 women are now planned for. There may be additional small protests, as well.  Offsetting these protests, the Inaugural Prayer Breakfast, will take place in another part of the city and David’s Tent will continue to lift up worship over the city at their site near the Washington Monument, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

“’Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” (Isaiah 24:10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that this would, indeed, be a day of rest for President Trump, Vice President Pence and their families.
  • The enemy will be looking to cause chaos and upheaval, but command order and peace over protest events. Intercede that they will not become violent or express any anarchist actions in any way.
  • Use the Isaiah 22:22 keys and shut the door to anyone who should not be in the city!
  • Pray that nothing would hinder prayer and worship over the nation. Pray specifically for The Inaugural Prayer Breakfast and the worship at David’s Tent, as well as Inaugural prayer meetings happening in various cities across the nation today. Pray that God would richly bless those involved for keeping the fire on God’s altar burning bright in America!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we pray that You would give President Trump and Mike Pence and their families a day of rest today. They have a very busy road rising up to meet them. What the enemy means for evil in our nation, we pray that You would turn for good. Let the hearts of the people be heard, without our government bowing to forceful demands. We pray that protests remain peaceful. Let Believers across America make this a day of out loud worship to our God and King! We magnify Your Name, Lord Jesus, and call You the Ruler over America. We will have no King but Jesus! We look to You to grant grace to our governing leadership. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will lift up the Name of Jesus in worship over Washington, D.C. and the nation today and wash Washington with our praise!

Inauguration Day

Today, Donald J. Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States of America. He will come into the presidency at a time of great division and moral conflict in this nation, and true danger in the nations of the earth. Many greet him with hope, some with trepidation and others with outright anger. “America, America, God shed His grace on Thee.”1 May President Donald J. Trump find favor in God’s eyes and govern with humility, wisdom and knowledge. May this beautiful and diverse land become more unified, safe, and prosperous. May the Church flourish in renewed religious freedom, so that this nation glorifies the Lord!

“He changes times and periods of history. He removes kings and establishes them. He gives wisdom to those who are wise and knowledge to those who have insight.” (Daniel 2:21; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede for President Donald J. Trump as he is inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States of America. Pray also for Mike Pence, being inaugurated as Vice-President. Ask the Lord to reveal Himself to them more every day and grant them everything they need to lead this nation forward.
  • Pray that the Lord would anoint Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence with a governmental anointing that can only come from Him—an anointing of supernatural favor, wisdom and knowledge.
  • Ask the Lord to guard our new President and Vice-President and their families, keeping them safe from all harm, both today and every day.
  • Pray for safety and protection over Washington, D. C., and the Inauguration site on the west lawn of the U. S. Capital building. Specifically pray against terrorism of any kind.
  • Pray that the leaders of many nations of the earth will open their hearts to this bold leader and choose to work with him for the advancement of each nation.
  • Thank the Lord for the window of religious freedom the Church will have. Get ready to share the Gospel and advance His Kingdom quickly in your realms of influence.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we lift President Donald Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence as they are inaugurated into office today. We ask that they would humbly seek Your face and that You would reveal Yourself and Your plans to them more each day. Grant them a grace to receive a governmental mantle of leadership and favor that provides what they are lacking, so that we are governed well. Keep them safe from all harm, as You also protect Washington, D.C., throughout this day and on into the future. We ask that their relationship with international leaders would grow and that they would cultivate a mutual respect with other national leaders around the world. Let us experience the fullness of freedom of religion, that may share Your Gospel of the Kingdom and that many may come to know Christ in these few years. Thank You, Lord. Amen.

Today’s decree:

May the Lord lead, guide and direct President Donald J. Trump and this Administration, as they humbly lean on, trust in and rely on Him.

Under the Shadow of His Wings

Today, many days of celebrations begin! Besides the Inauguration tomorrow, Inaugural Galas and Balls, the Inaugural Parade, the National Prayer Breakfast and many other festivities will mark the change of presidential administrations from President Barak Obama’s to President-elect Donald Trump’s. It will be a fete of honor attended by most of the nation’s leadership. Many heads of state from around the world are coming. Mixed into this merriment will be American citizens from all walks of life—a microcosm of the United States. These places of joyful celebration could be seen by those who dwell in darkness as an opportunity to stop the transition or to wreak maximum havoc. We are going to need maximum heavenly assistance to make sure that a peaceful transition of power does occur.

“If you say, ‘The Lord is my refuge,’ and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.” (Psalm 91:9-10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray Psalm 91 in its entirety over Washington, D.C. Now, pray it again over the United States of America.
  • Decree that no weapon formed against the Inauguration and related festivities over the next 5 days will prosper, but that every plan of wickedness will be uncovered and removed!
  • Pray for supernatural assistance to root out any dark plans. Ask the Lord to give the many security workers and law enforcement officers eyes like an eagles and sharp discernment as they move people through security checkpoints at various events.
  • Pray that anyone who is not supposed to come to Washington will be stopped by the Lord.
  • Intercede for local police, sheriffs, Department of Homeland Security officers, and other law enforcement agents as they work in other places across the nation. Pray that they would detect any plans to cause mass harm. Pray that their very presence would disarm any angry protest mobs.
  • Thank the Lord for His watchful care over every event! There will be many of His people in the nation’s capital. Rejoice that what He has promised in His Word, He will do!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we worship You! We pray Psalm 91 over Washington, D.C. (Open your Bible and pray it.) We pray it again over the whole United States of America. We decree that no weapon formed against the Inauguration and related events will prosper, and every plan conceived in darkness will be exposed and come to nothing! Stop every lawless individual and every potential terrorist from entering the city. Lord, protect the thousands of law enforcement officers who will be working in Washington, D.C., these next 5 days to keep the Capital safe. Send angels to assist them. Let their presence be a deterrent to those who may desire to cause harm. We praise you for your watchful care, Lord Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and we make the Most High our dwelling place, therefore, no harm will overtake us, no disaster will come near our homes or our nation’s Capital!”

Defusing Inaugural Distractions

The election of Donald Trump has stirred up a hornets’ nest of individuals upset that the nation has done an “about-face”. We are headed in a new direction—back to the Constitution, back to God-honoring principles that will benefit all, and forward in business expansion, choices for life, and protection against terrorism, among other things.  Radical groups are looking to cause a disruption to the forward-momentum. A few hundred thousand protestors are expected to descend on Washington, D. C., over the next few days, both in support of and against the inauguration of Mr. Trump.1 God is already answering prayers for the diffusion of the anger, disenfranchisement and fear some felt after the elections. A “March for Women” is scheduled for the day after the Inauguration, when 200,000 have stated they are coming, as opposed to the one million participants they had hoped to gather. Other groups plan to gather in major cities across the nation, pulling attention away from the festivities in Washington. Much of the agitation feeding these groups is coming from media reporting and community organizers.

“Even when I must walk in the midst of danger, you revive me. You oppose my angry enemies, and your right hand delivers me.” (Psalm 138:7; NET Bible)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that those coming to Inauguration Day festivities in support of Donald Trump and Mike Pence will drown out anti-Trump protestors. Some are groups coming to worship God! Pray that their voices, prayers and praise will drown out every other voice! Let God arise and His enemies be scattered!
  • Intercede for those protestors that are angry and fearful. Pray that God would touch their minds with His Truth and their hearts with His Love. Pray that the eyes of their hearts would be enlightened and they would know the hope that only He can give!
  • Pray strongly against any plan of darkness to cause terror across the nation’s capital or anywhere else in America. This is the “worst of the worst” distraction. Disallow it, in Jesus’ Name. Ask God to send angel armies to root out any harmful plans.
  • Continue to ask the Lord for His protection over the District of Columbia today and through the rest of the week. Cry out to God for His peace and grace over each day and every activity.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, our nation is in a turmoil. We have elected a new President, but some are not happy with the decision the nation made. They are seeking to cause a serious disruption to festivities this week and, especially, on Inaugural Day. Some are coming to D. C. to worship You and exalt You over the nation. Let the praises to our God drown out every other voice! Lord, stop the enemy from borrowing people to cause anarchy and terror. We intercede on behalf of those that are truly fearful and ask that Your love would wash over them. Show the that You are there for them, even if the government shall fail them. Place Your angelic protection over the nation, particularly over Washington, D.C., this week. In the Name of Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God will keep safe the nation that honors Him and will defuse every plan of the evil one to cause harm on Inauguration Day!

The Security of a Nation

Citizens from across the nation are beginning to arrive in Washington, D.C., for the inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America. Leaders and others from many nations in the earth are arriving, as well. The question on everyone’s mind is, “Will I be safe at this high-profile event?” In this era of global terrorism and lone-gunmen, this is a significant question. There are those that regularly guard the President and our national security, including the Secret Service and the CIA. The Washington, D.C., police force daily watches over the nation’s capital. They will be joined by approximately 3200 police officers, 13,000 military troops and 6,000 National Guardsmen from across the nation. They reportedly will help handle everything from security checkpoints, traffic control, parade route safety and helping people deal with the weather. With more than 800,000 expected for Inauguration Day, some of whom will be protestors, we are very thankful the security will be tight.

“If the LORD does not build the house, it is useless for the builders to work on it. If the LORD does not protect a city, it is useless for the guard to stay alert.”
(Psalm 127:1; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Though the numbers of individuals providing security for the inauguration will be many, let us pray Psalm 127:1 over the event—that, unless the Lord guards the city, it is useless for the guards to try to keep it safe.
  • Intercede for the Lord to alert law enforcement to every detail that could erupt into violence.
  • Pray for supernatural protection over Donald Trump, Mike Pence, their families and their property.
  • Ask God to protect each individual coming. Cover their flights, their ground transportation and their lodging. Pray that they would be on the alert and watchful over their surroundings.
  • Get a map of the inaugural site and pray as specifically as you can over the next few days for the whole area, the security entrances, and especially the inaugural platform.
  • Pray over the parade route.
  • Pray for the safety of all those providing security, as well.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, there will be many providing watchful safety and security over Washington, D.C., for the Inauguration. However, we know that unless You watch over the city, those who do so in the natural will labor in vain. So, we ask for Your watchful care, Lord. Help all law enforcement see anything they need to see and uncover every plot in order to provide a safe and peaceful transition of power. Especially protect Donald Trump and Mike Pence, their families and property. Help each individual coming into the city to arrive safely and be watchful over their surroundings as they move about the city. Send angels to protect the Inaugural grounds, the parade watch and all sites of celebration. We also ask that you hold each member providing natural security in your loving arms, watching over them, while they protect us. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Declare 2 Thessalonians 3:3 over Washington, D.C., and other significant U. S. locations: “But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.” Decree that every plan of darkness will be uncovered, dismantled and rendered harmless and there will be no distraction leading up to or on Inauguration Day!

Martin Luther King Celebration Day

“Martin Luther King Celebration Day is important to me, because it marks 12 years of friendship with my dear friend, Matt Lockett.  We didn’t know each other before this day, but we both were led to a prayer gathering at the Lincoln Memorial on Jan 17th, 2005, because of separate dreams we received.  Nine years later, you can only imagine how awestruck we were to discover that Matt’s family owned my family during slavery!  Only God could have us start a lasting friendship from the place where Dr. King said in his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, ‘I have a dream, that one day the sons of former slaves and sons of former slave owners could sit down together at the table of brotherhood.’  This all happened because God hasn’t forgotten the dream of His Son, of John 17, that His glory would come and make us one, so that the world would believe.   The God of providence is healing the race issue in America at the table of brotherhood.  And yes, join us….there’s still room at the table.” (William Ford, III)1

“I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” (John 17:23; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord for His ways are marvelous. He orchestrates the circumstances of our lives such that we are left undone in His Presence.
  • Ask the Lord to create a John 17 unity between the races in America, therefore to fulfill His desire and that of Martin Luther King, Jr. Where there is unity, the Lord commands the blessing.
  • Intercede into the race issue in America and ask the Lord to heal it so completely that it resides only in our history books.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we worship You for the way in which you cause the course of our lives to unfold in ways that amaze us. You are truly intimately acquainted with all of our ways and those of the generations before us. Lord, use our lives in this generation to bring healing to our nation’s past. Fulfill the dream of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the dream that is Yours, as stated in John 17. Unite the races, black and white together, and make us one, even as You are one. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The God of providence is healing the race issue in America at the table of brotherhood.

God Will Muzzle the Rage

“I recently felt the Lord’s prompting to release an encouragement to the body of Christ to be SPECIFICALLY decreeing Psalm 65:7 from the Passion Translation over President Elect-Trump’s inauguration in a week’s time.  “You muzzle the roar of the mighty seas and the rage of mobs with their noisy riots.” (The Passion Translation) Decree Psalm 65:7 with me that the Lord will muzzle the rage of mobs with their noisy riots and the commotion of nations that may attempt to arise!! Watch and see what God is going to do with the powerful decree of His Word!” (Lana Vawser)1

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thousands have begun their arrival into Washington, D.C., for the Inauguration. Pray Psalm 65:7, as Lana prophesied.
  • Declare the Word in Hebrews 4:12. Bring the two scriptures together and believe God will cause Psalm 65:7 to come to pass.
  • Pray for safety over the city and a disarming of the anger and rage of anarchist groups promising to come to disrupt, even stop, the Inauguration.
  • Say, “Let the Will of God be done!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we pray that You would “muzzle the roar of the mighty seas and the rage of mobs with their noisy riots.” Stop the commotion of those who want to come and interrupt the Inauguration of Donald Trump and Mike Pence. Lord, we thank You that Your Word will go forth to judge the thoughts and attitudes of the hearts of those wanting to cause harm to the nation at this hour. We ask for the peace of God to reign over Washington, D.C., this week. Let the Will of God be done! Thank You, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The rabble rousers seeking to stop the Inauguration will be silenced in Jesus’ Name!

This great Convergence of the Ages is coming with a historic Fourth Wave of the Holy Spirit and a reformation that will lead to the Great Transformation of nations.”1

I thank You that You are bringing all the aspects of recent major moves of God together in one moment. We have been praying for this and now we will experience it. Lord, I worship You for the ways You express Yourself in the earth—working miracles, pouring out Your Spirit, making us thirst after Your Word, and transforming our nation through Your apostolic power poured out through us! Wonderful! Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is creating a spiritual synergy of the ages in our nation now!

We Are Living History As We Pray For America

“We are living history. The election of a new president and the transition of power in this nation are always historic. Both the House and the Senate have proven veterans and newly elected leaders. This is historic. At this time in history, how do we pray for America? Beyond the political pundits and talk show hosts, beyond the rising challenges of violence and danger in our nation, we have God. Yes, we are one nation under God! I want to tell you how I am praying for America daily. In fact, not only am I praying daily, but thousands of members in the church I pastor are praying with me each week in their time of prayer with our church.” (Dr. Ronnie Floyd)1
