Praying for Our Military: Reversing the Infringement of Freedom of Religion

“Congress shall make no laws respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof………”.   – First Amendment to the US Constitution

“Congress intended that every American would be free to believe what they chose and live according to their individual faith. More importantly, that Americans would also be free to speak about and live their individual faith without fear of repercussions. All faiths are welcome in this nation, as long as their faith does not threaten or conflict with the US Constitution. Those founding Fathers guaranteed future generations the freedom of religion, including the young men and women in the US military. They, more than most citizens, defend the freedoms of all Americans. Today, the religious liberties of military members are being infringed. Chaplains are being disciplined for praying in the name of Jesus, and individual service members of all services are suffering harassment and disciplinary action for living their faith openly. Low morale results from the infringements, and consequently, retention and recruitment of good people is problematic.” (General Jerry Boykin)1

So then, my friends, because of God’s great mercy to us I appeal to you: Offer yourselves as a living sacrifice to God, dedicated to his service and pleasing to him. This is the true worship that you should offer.” (Romans 12:1; GNT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray for leaders who support the 1st Amendment rights of service members.
  • Ask God to bring about a spiritual renewal and revival within the Armed Forces.
  • Pray for new DOD Directives that make clear that individual religious liberty will be protected.
  • Pray that all Christian military chaplains will be free to share and propagate the Gospel.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we ask that You help our leaders to fully support the guarantee of the First Amendment rights of our service members. Pour our spiritual renewal and revival among the ranks. Shift the DOD Directives to allow for individual religious liberty and that it be protected by law. Restore the freedom military chaplains have had and need to have to minister the Gospel freely in their service to this country. Thank You, Lord. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that the Lord is restoring religious freedom to the military and it shall lead the way to freedom of religion in many other areas of American society!

Praying for Our Military: Leaders With a Warrior Ethos

“Leadership is a base principle of the US Armed Forces or any military. Strong leaders always command effective military units while weak leaders never succeed in building credible and capable units. American military leaders over the past eight years have been chosen largely because they were willing to support the Obama agenda, even at the expense of military readiness and capabilities. Consequently, they are not respected nor trusted by their subordinates. President Trump must appoint new leaders in short order. These leaders must be focused on war fighting and have proven records of leadership in combat operations. America can no longer accept leaders who are not willing to stand up, speak truth to power, and put their oath to the US Constitution first, above career. A warrior ethos is the most important quality needed in future leaders of our military.” (General Jerry Boykin)1

“The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task.” (1Timothy 3:1; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray for President Donald Trump to recognize the need for new leaders with proven records of leadership in combat.
  • Ask God to identify those leaders to President Trump and to give him the discernment to know the true leaders from those who are self-serving careerists.
  • Pray for God to give all leaders in our military the courage to act as leaders, even when the culture demands political correctness. Pray that they will all put the country first and stand on principle in all matters.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we ask You for strong leaders over our military—over divisions, brigades, regiments, battalions, squadrons, platoons and the like.  We pray that our President would appoint even more brave, seasoned leaders to these critical positions. Let them be those that are servants and not self-serving. Grant them courage, Jesus. Grant them an anointing to stand against political correctness and do what the troops, the military, and the country needs! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that the Lord shall cause great military leaders to be raised up and put in place for the United States of America.

Prayer for Our Military: Proper Equipping

“Having the right equipment for battle is a biblical principle as espoused by Jesus to his disciples. Today’s military is inadequately equipped to defend the nation and to win wars. After sixteen years of continuous warfare in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other places around the globe, military hardware is worn out. It has not been replaced due to programmed budget cuts and sequestration. Half of the US Navy airplanes are grounded due to maintenance problems. The other services are experiencing similar problems with major military hardware and equipment. Every service member needs to have the best equipment that money can buy before going into battle, yet in many instances, our men and women in uniform are literally buying their own personal equipment items. This is an intolerable situation.” (Generals Jerry Boykin)1

“And if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one”.  (Luke 22:36; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask the Lord to increase the Defense Budget to an appropriate level to support the equipment needs of our service members.
  • Pray that God will give the US Congress wisdom in developing the Defense Budget.
  • Pray that military leaders will use their resources wisely and stay focused on military readiness.

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Lord, my heart is heavy. Our military pay a dear price in many ways to protect myself, my family and my country from threats domestic and abroad. In order to do that, they should have the very best equipment. Will you touch the hearts of our nation’s leaders, so that they fund everything that is needed? Give them wisdom to know how to wisely budge. Let military leadership operate with good stewardship in the use of delegated resources. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that our military will be well-equipped with all they need to protect and serve the citizens of the United States!

Prayer for Our Military: Training and Preparation for Warfare

“Training and preparation for war are fundamental to success on the battlefield. Training must be structured to address the anticipated challenges of the battlefield upon which the soldier expects to operate. Success and survival will be determined largely by the extent and sophistication of the training programs that are implemented before going into battle. A poorly designed and executed training program will result in loss of life and failure to subdue the enemy. Social experiments in the US military have greatly degraded training programs by using valuable time for non-essential training, thereby sacrificing valuable training time in favor of such things as diversity, tolerance, sexual harassment, and white privilege.” (General Jerry Boykin)1

“Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war….”. (Psalm 144:1; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask the Lord to give wisdom to military leaders regarding the wise use of their training time and resources.
  • Pray for these social experiments to be stopped and for no additional social experiments to be done.
  • Pray for a restoration of combat-focused training that will prepare American service members for the rigors of warfare.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, our military leadership needs wisdom for the use of their training time and resources. We say, “Enough with social experiments in this ‘captive audience’.” These are men and women needing trained to fight for the protection of American freedoms around the world. Please help the military to redo their training programs to focus on the essentials once again. We ask for their protection, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that our military will once again be the best trained in the world and the social experiments are coming to an end.

Praying for Our Military: Protection of the Troops

“Young American military men and women are serving in hostile areas around the world today, standing against evil in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria. Their enemies are diabolical, determined, and lethal. Every service member in harm’s way needs the protection of the Almighty, just as Psalm 91 calls for. Prayers for them need to be focused and intense and prayed as one would pray for a loved one who is in imminent danger with an immediate need for protection. We must remember that those who serve do so because their country has sent them to a foreign land to stand up to tyranny, not because they have chosen the time and place for warfare. Consequently, we need to be praying for safety for all military personnel wherever they are in the world.” (General Jerry Boykin)

“A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you”. (Psalm 91:7; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that God will give each service member the whole armor of God in both a physical and spiritual manifestation of that armor.
  • Pray that God will give each service member a discernment to see and recognize the enemy before the enemy can act.
  • Ask the Lord to bring comfort to all service members as they are separated from their families and loved ones.
  • Ask God for victory in battle for America and our allies. Seek a quick victory with a minimal loss of life on either side.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we ask You to cloth each of our U. S. Service members with the whole armor of God. Protect them from every plan of the evil one against them. We ask that You would give them a gift of discernment to recognize the enemy before they can act. Please send Holy Spirit to comfort the loved ones of those who are deployed. Grant grace and peace to soldiers on the battlefield. We ask You for swift and complete victory on the battlefield with minimal loss of life. Let those who are Your enemies, see Who You are through this, even as the ancient enemies of Israel did when You moved to win their battles. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that the battle is the Lord’s and He will move mightily on behalf of our troops!

Agreement in the Final Day of the Esther Fast

“Shockingly, the Women’s March was only a first shot across the bow. In reality, an alliance of spiritual anarchy is presently being unveiled in full defiance of a ‘We the People’ electoral result and biblical truths that undergird our nation. With a disturbing brazenness (and the consent of the media), the dark underbelly of anarchy issued a global summons to employ witchcraft and curses against President Trump, his cabinet, and those aligned with a biblical worldview. This made plain what we have known from the beginning: Spiritual battles cannot be won on the playing field of protests and political arguments. Only the Church has the answer to such an unprecedented manifestation of witchcraft. According to Derek Prince, the Persian advisor, Haman (the adversary in the Book of Esther), practiced divination through the casting of lots, thus clearly aligning himself with demonic spiritual powers in his plot to destroy the whole Jewish population in the earth. Esther’s response, a 3-day, no-food-no-water fast, was the nuclear option of her day. It was an act of desperate dependence on God, the only thing capable of breaking the dark powers being channeled by Haman’s witchcraft. ‘Esther and her handmaidens’ led the whole nation in an intense period of fasting and prayer for three days leading up to Purim. Amazingly, dark schemes at the highest levels of government were exposed. Esther’s fast effectively reversed the curse and shifted the whole public policy of the Persian Empire in favor of the Jewish people. I cannot stress this enough: we are in a similar day and a cataclysmic battle for the soul of our nation. We cannot live the same way we lived yesterday.” (Lou Engle)1

“The Lord, Who makes you, bought you and saves you, and the One Who put you together before you were born, says, “I am the Lord, Who made all things. I alone spread out the heavens, and I alone spread out the earth. 25 I allow trouble to come on the special things done by men who lie and speak in pride. I make fools out of those who tell the future using their secret ways. I turn back wise men, and make their learning foolish.” (Isaiah 44:24-25; NLV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray for the breaking of witchcraft against President Trump.
  • Pray for the agents of wickedness to be exposed and removed from their positions – Esther 7.
  • Pray that Christians would repent of any alignment with darkness in their attitudes and words towards those in authority.
  • Pray that those inciting violence and unrest would be stopped.
  • Intercede that the younger generation of women and girls would rise up and be trained in the ways of Esther.
  • Ask the Lord that upright women would be granted positions of influence in their homes, churches and civic realms.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we pray that President Trump will not be affected by any form of witchcraft coming against him. We ask that all agents of wickedness in any form would be found out and removed from their positions. Lord, let Christians repent of any place we may have aligned ourselves with darkness. Let us check our hearts and attitudes toward authority and repent, if need be. We command the violence in the nation to stop! We intercede for our women, young and old, to be graced with favor and influence, so they can take their places in history. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that God-fearing women of God are rising up to take their positions of influence in this nation.

Esther Fast for America

“There are moments in history when a door for massive change opens. Great revolutions, either good or evil, spring up in the vacuum created by these openings. In such divine moments, key men, women and entire generations risk everything to become the hinge of history—the ‘pivot point’ that determines which way the door will swing. Esther is a prototype of history’s hinge: a courageous woman who humbly and artfully spoke truth to power. Facing witchcraft and dark conspiracies in Persia’s power base, Queen Esther risked her life, armed with nothing but an undying love for her people, a providential position of authority, her own dignity and the secret arsenal of corporate prayer and fasting. Through her, a nation was spared annihilation.” (Lou Engle)1

“Esther said, ‘I and my young women will also fast likewise. Only then would I dare go to the king since it is not allowed by law, and if I perish, I perish.’” (Esther 4:16b; ISV).

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that the women who love Jesus would rise up in this hour and know who they are!
  • Intercede for the women lost in darkness who are rising up to fill a vacuum created by this last election. They feel disenfranchised and are aligning with histories injustices. Pray they would know God’s deep love for them.
  • Declare that humble, God-fearing women, who understand their glorious purpose, will rise up to take their inheritance and their places in history.
  • Pray for those participating in the Esther fast from sundown, March 8, to sundown, March 11, that they would have grace and strength and break the witchcraft seeking to curse President Trump and this new administration.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we call for Your women to rise up! Let them know exactly who they are in You! We pray for those women lost in darkness who have risen up to fill a perceived vacuum of historic injustice. Show them how deeply You love them. In their place, we declare that God-fearing, glory-filled, humble women would rise up to that place God has prepared for them in this Purim season —to break the power of witchcraft over President Trump and over the nation, that God’s purposes can move forward and accomplish His perfect will. Thank You, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We declare that God’s women are rising in the humility of fasting and intercession, and witchcraft is breaking and the nation is moving forward in the purposes of God!

Praying for a Strong Economy: Tax

Tax reform is a very important part of the Trump agenda and has several components. U.S. corporations have an estimated $2.5 trillion in cash parked overseas as current corporate tax policy allows them to not pay tax on profits which could be reinvested overseas. This policy is negative for U.S. corporations. Trump is proposing a one-time 10-15% repatriation tax (to be paid regardless of whether a company keeps its cash overseas or brings it back to the U.S.). This is an important plank of Trumps economic policy as it destroys the incentive for U.S. corporations to keep cash parked overseas, but can also generate as much as $375 billion in tax revenue to reduce the budget deficit. U.S. Corporate tax policy needs to be greatly simplified, and rates reduced as the top U.S. corporate rate is well above its peers, discouraging business.  Labyrinthine complexity makes it much harder for U.S. businesses with tax compliance cost estimated in $316 billion per year. (Source: Spectator, 4/4/16) (Jerry Tuma)1

Tax collectors also came to be baptized, and they said to him, “Teacher, what should we do?” He told them, “Collect no more than you are required to.” (Luke 3:13; NET)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that President Trump and Congress will come together to put America on better footing in terms of greatly simplified tax policy, and greatly reducing corporate tax rates to draw new businesses to the U.S.
  • Intercede for U. S. businesses that have taken their manufacturing offshore that our government would provide incentives for them to be able to do business on U.S. soil once again.
  • Ask the Lord to download wisdom and creative strategies to reduce our national debt!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we pray that our President and Congress, that they would come into a John 17 place of unity, and work together to simplify our corporate tax structure. We need a lower tax rate to draw new businesses to the U. S., as well as see the return of manufacturing to our shores. Pour out Your wisdom and creativity on our governing leaders, so that our national debt can begin to shrink, instead of grow! Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that God has strategies He is waiting to download to incentivize American corporations to do business on American soil!

Praying for a Strong Economy: International Financial Relationships

The world is more and more a global society. Nations trading with other nations is centuries old, but the speed and level of international trade has grown to such a massive level that some trade agreements can cause inequities and serious financial stress on one nation’s populace over another’s. Trump wants to rewrite the trade rules with which we do business with other countries. He favors bilateral trade agreements with different countries (example: U.S. negotiates separate trade deal with China vs. trying to deal with all 12 nations in the Trans Pacific trade agreement). This is important, as when establishing trade rules between the U.S. and another country, if one party cheats on the terms of the agreement or develops an economic advantage, this can be easily discovered and remedied. Whereas, a trade agreement with many participants is very difficult to monitor and enforce. The economic relationship between China and this nation, in particular, demands our prayerful attention. In addition to the trading of goods, our banking systems are inter-related, as well. Governments buy and sell the debts of other nations, and their currencies are exchanged on the open markets. Each nation attempts to regulate all of these international financial relationships to the benefit of their nation’s needs. (Jerry Tuma and Marc Nuttle)1

Do to others as you would like them to do to you.” (Luke 6:31; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray for favor as President Trump renegotiates America’s trade agreements. The goal is not a “trade war”, but rather to make sure that American companies are not disadvantaged by trade terms versus our economic competition overseas.
  • Ask the Lord to help China, Europe and the United States will coordinate their banking systems into a compatible system for accounting, foreign exchange rates, and regulation.
  • Intercede that China will abandon its attempt to establish its own banking system separate from the protocol of Western banking standards.
  • Pray that the World Bank and International Monetary Fund will be reformed and updated to comply with a new standardized world banking system.
  • Pray that China will reform their internal economic system to establish true free enterprise.
  • Ask the Lord to cause the Federal Reserves of the world, along with sovereign Treasuries, to work towards managing a foreign exchange rate for all currencies that is calibrated by free markets and not distorted by subsidization.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we pray that President Trump would have favor wherever he needs it as he renegotiates our nation’s trade agreements with other nations.  Make our trade relationships win-wins for all countries involved. Coordinate our independent banking systems, so they work well together and that our exchange rates are true reflections of the strength of each nation’s economy. Reform the World Bank and International Monetary Fund or remove them. Let them no longer hold the world’s poorest nations in the poverty they are trying to escape from. We need Your wisdom through Your people placed in strategic places to provide Your creative financial plans to rectify a world economic system that is corrupt and power-hungry. Help us Lord! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that God will download significant, creative economic ideas to those with ears to hear His Spirit.

March 7 – Praying for a Strong Economy: Energy

Energy plays a huge role in the U.S. economy, as American oil and gas provide more than 50% of energy needs for U.S. companies and are subject to possibly the most onerous regulations of any industry. The EPA was responsible for almost half of all new regulations in recent years. One Wall Street Journal article highlighted the insane difficulties of putting a 682 mile natural gas pipeline from western Wyoming to Oregon, requiring 215 archeologists to ensure that “rock stacks”(which had been used as navigational markers for trails prior to maps) were undisturbed. The EPA required a 44-member environmental inspection team to ensure that 1600 migratory bird nests were not disturbed. The pure insanity of many of these rules not only unnecessarily complicate projects, but drive up costs and time, meaning reduced profitability for the firms and less efficient energy costs to consumers. (Source: American Spectator, 4/4/16; Wall Street Journal 8/16/11) (Jerry Tuma)1

Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.” (Proverbs 28:26; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that America will aggressively pursue energy independence and create additional infrastructure, allowing American businesses to access cheap energy in order to grow.
  • Ask the Lord to show our government leaders how to be good stewards of our natural resources and cultural history without limiting America’s economic recovery and progress.
  • Pray for the discovery of new sources of energy resources and for creativity toward the best and most efficient use of the resources we currently have.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, there are circumstances where what appears right becomes foolish and this has often happened in the government stewardship of our natural resources. We believe You have given these resources to us for our use and prosperity. You have creative ways to access and use the resources wisely. Show our government leaders and entrepreneurs how to pursue energy independence and create new and better infrastructure, balancing inexpensive energy with growth and expansion. Show us how to create wealth form our natural energy resources. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God can create resources and He can show us how to wisely use the resources that are currently available and how to access those that are not yet evident. He has created more than enough!
