Delight:

A strong feeling of happiness; great pleasure or satisfaction; a high degree of gratification

Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)

“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

PRAY:

Today, Lord, I receive with gratitude your rejoicing over me. I serve you in joy and desire to bring you delight through my thoughts and actions—and especially through the exercise of power that is the opportunity to vote in this election. I pray that in this election season and through this upcoming vote, you would shape America to be a nation of people who bring you delight.

Here is Today’s Focus:

Devotion:

A feeling of strong love or loyalty; the fact or state of being ardently dedicated and loyal

1 John 3:16 (NIV)

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.”

PRAY:

Thank you, Jesus, for your sacrifice and devotion to me. I pray that as I approach this election, you would show me how to demonstrate your love and devotion to the lost through my vote. Reveal to me, Lord, how I can lay my life down for the sake of others as I consider issues and candidates on the ballot. May my heart be devoted to you and to my “neighbors” in America as I vote this year.

Here is Today’s Focus:

Other Faiths and Belief Systems

Many Americans embrace belief systems and ideologies that claim to point the way to salvation through some system of selfsacrifice and good works yet miss the transforming power of the cross and resurrection. The apostle Paul taught, “if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Corinthians 5:17, NIV). Pray that believers across America will have opportunities to share the reality of knowing Christ with those who have never experienced His “amazing grace.” Especially pray for the various faiths that exist in America, as well as the many organizations and individuals focused on demonstrating the compassion of Christ among people of these groups. Pray that the growing “prayer, care, share” strategy of truly praying for and loving those of other faiths through caring for and helping meet their felt needs will become a national strategy of the Body of Christ. Pray by name for neighbors and friends you know who embrace different belief systems, asking God to enable you to share the Good News of your own testimony with them in love and humility.

Today’s Passage:

Acts 26:16-18

“Now get up and stand on your feet. I have appeared to you to appoint you as a servant and as a witness of what you have seen and will see of me. I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’”

Here is Today’s Focus:

Pardon:
(The excusing of an offense without exacting a penalty; excuse or forgiveness for a fault, offense, or discourtesy)

Jeremiah 33:7-8 (NKJV)

“And I will cause the captives of Judah and the captives of Israel to return, and will rebuild those places as at the first. I will cleanse them from all their iniquity by which they have sinned against Me, and I will pardon all their iniquities by which they have sinned and by which they have transgressed against Me.”

PRAY: 4

I thank you today, God, for the gift of your pardon. I repent of all the ways I have sinned against you and pray that you would cleanse my heart of all iniquity. As I consider this year’s election, Lord, I pray that you would pardon your people in America. Cleanse our hearts of iniquity, and rebuild us as a unified Body known by our love in this nation today.

GLOBAL PRAYER SHIELD SUNDAY

“Seeking God for the Peace and Protection of our Cities!”

Join a broad coalition of churches, denominations and ministries globally in setting aside the first Sunday of October annually in the spirit of Jeremiah 29:7, Psalm 91: 7-11 and Romans 13:1-2 to appoint a designated time of prayer in our churches and other gatherings of worship to intercede for protection from global terrorism and for those who wear a of shield of protection (police, fire fighters, first-responders, etc.) as they seek to protect our citizens from harm and danger.

 Jeremiah 29:7
…Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.

Psalm 91:9-11
If you make the Most High your dwelling—even the Lord, who is my refuge—then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.

Romans 13:1-2
Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

Terrorism is now a worldwide concern. Primarily carried out by radical Islamists, this is a type of warfare that comes right into neighborhoods and group events right where we live. Our governmental authorities, intelligence agencies and local law enforcement are working together diligently to root out plots and plans and stop them before they can be carried out, but we believe Divine intervention is needed to help them. Please join with us in prayer to this end.

  1. Thank the Lord that He is the One who ultimately protects our cities and nations from harm. Tell Him that we acknowledge Him first above any other source of protection.
  2. Pray for the peace of the city you live in and ask God to provide protection against terrorism. Say that the blood of Jesus protects your city from all harm and that no disaster can befall it.
    Pray for wisdom and direction from the Holy Spirit for authorities as they seek out all of those who may be planning harm and that every plot would be found out.
  3. Decree that acts of terrorism being planned in darkness in your state or nation will come into the light and be stopped!

Psalm 127:1b
“Unless the LORD protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good.”

1 Peter 4:11
“If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.”

When tragedy strikes, we all look for help. Those who are trained to provide that help, whether it is medical, protective, or rescue, are appreciated and honored by the vast majority of those whom they serve. In a day of global terrorism when authorities are under attack, as well as those who misunderstand and distrust even first responders, it is important that we pray for our police, fire, and medical response teams worldwide.

  1. Give thanks to the Lord for those who so often put their lives on the line for others. In so many ways, they reflect the giving nature of Jesus who gave Himself for us.
  2. Pray for physical protection for these first responders since there are many situations in which their lives and bodies are placed in danger.
  3. Pray for peace for their families who are aware of the dangers their loved ones often face.
  4. Pray for emotional protection, especially in the United States in light of criticism and attacks due to conflict between some African Americans and the police. Help them to not be easily offended or hurt by criticism. Protect them from cynicism.
  5. Pray for increased skill and effectiveness in their daily tasks of coming to the aid of others. Ask the Lord to give them confidence in the abilities He has given them and in those they have developed through training.

We must always remember that God is ultimately our Shield against the enemy’s actions. He is the one we look to first to protect us and save us. Worship Him and thank Him that we can rely on Him 100 percent of the time!

Here is Today’s Focus:

Christian Laborers

(Remembering Pastors, Evangelists, Teachers, and Other Christian Workers)

Today our primary focus for prayer as watchmen are those who help spread or teach the Good News of Christ in our community and nation. Be specific as you pray for those you know by name who are serving to advance the Kingdom of Christ. Some may be prominent leaders in the Church, known worldwide, while others may only be known to a small community of believers, including you. They need your prayers. Pray for those you know who may be beyond your theological sphere or denomination. Compile your personal list of those you want to pray for at least once each month. Pray also for more laborers to be called into the harvest (Matthew 9:37-38). Pray also for those who proclaim the Gospel, that it will be “the pure Gospel” and that all Christian workers, whether missionaries or indigenous pastors and evangelists, will remember Peter’s compelling words: “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12, NKJV).

Today’s Passages:

Matthew 9:37-38

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

Romans 10:13-15

“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

Here is Today’s Focus:

THE CHURCH (Religion)

(Religion, Revival, and Spiritual Awakening)

Pray specifically today for your church and other churches of your community or area. As you pray through today’s passages from Scripture, apply these promises to this specific focus— Religion (and more specifically, the Church). Include churches and denominations by name, asking God to bless them with true revival. Pray specifically for revival in your church and the churches of your area and for a resulting spiritual awakening in your community so that many might come to Christ as the result. Additionally, remember people of other faiths and religions, that they might experience the transforming grace of Jesus Christ.

Today’s Passages:

Ephesians 3:14-21

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.

Ephesians 1:17-19

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.

This united prayer initiative begins on September 30th and ends on Election Day, November 8th. In addition, there will be much collaboration with major national prayer events that are happening across the nation during this period of time. Remember, this starts tomorrow! Spread the word!

Here is how it works:
1) Join the 40-day Prayer Challenge and receive a daily prayer guide via email.

2) Adopt Your Street in Prayer.

3) Download your free prayer guides. “Fast Forward America” is the official prayer guide for this 40-day period of prayer walking, but there are others on the site you and your family, church or prayer group can choose to use.

“So that with one mind and one voice, you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 15:6; NIV)

Take the time today to pray for the success of this initiative, check out the website, get signed up and get ready. Tell all your friends by emailing and texting the link to the site and post it on your social media sites.

The Fire that Unites

This nation is a seriously divided nation, racially-speaking. Some keep working hard at unity, but then something always seems to happen to divide us again. The United States once had many small towns of mostly European immigrants with their own languages and cultures dotting the landscape, but over time most melted into one nation. It has always been much harder for people of color. The beauty of our ethnic backgrounds isn’t meant by God to divide us, but to bring a fullness of beauty to America. We need His miraculous move to heal us and make us truly one.

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28; BSB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare that every Christian man, woman and child, regardless of race, is a son and daughter of the living God and was bought with the blood of Jesus.
  • Declare that we are standing together in the beauty of our racial diversity asking God for awakening in America.
  • Pray that all of our cities and neighborhoods would be visited by revival and that not one would be left out!
  • Cry out, cry out for revival fires to unify this nation!

A prayer you can pray:

We declare that we are Christians, sons and daughters of the living God. Before our skin pigment, we declare we were bought with the precious blood of Jesus. We are brothers and sisters standing for an awakening in America. Father, we ask that you would send revival fires across the nation, among Latin communities, among Black communities, among Asian and all other minority communities. Together with every other American, we are all in desperate need of You, Lord! Unite us in revival and awakening! In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

God will make us One in Him as He purifies our hearts toward one another in the fires of awakening and revival!

A Sound That Will Be Heard

I am asking for pastors, prayer leaders from every state, moms, dads, teenagers, people from every race, and everyone that is willing, to join us in Ohio October 20th to the 22nd  for three days of prayer and worship. We are going to release a sound that will be heard in heaven. Let’s don’t make the mistake of hoping things will change and certainly not in putting our faith in a person or a political party. Let’s take action. Let’s pick up this nation in prayer, including the elections, and cry out until we receive what He has promised us in His Word. (For more information and to register, click here.)

“The LORD said to his people: ‘You are standing at the crossroads. So consider your path. Ask where the old, reliable paths are. Ask where the path is that leads to blessing and follow it. If you do, you will find rest for your souls.’ But they said, ‘We will not follow it!’” (Jeremiah 6:16; NET)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Repent if you have been simply hoping things in this nation would work out for the best.
  • Identificationally repent for those in the Body of Christ who will not look to God for His path for this nation, so we can get on it and move forward.
  • Even if you can’t come to Ohio, call for the 3000 that can come and join their voices together to cry out in one voice for the future of this nation.
  • Tell the Lord you are expecting to see answers to these unified prayers!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, forgive me for not rousing myself to “believe” more than “hope” that You can move this nation forward to fulfill Your Will for it. Forgive the Body of Christ across this nation who have a Jeremiah 6:16 attitude and won’t look to You in prayer for Your path forward for this nation. Often that is because of unbelief, as things have not seemed to change for so many years. Help us, Lord. Forgive us. I call for the people of God to congregate in Ohio October 20th to 22nd. Fill every seat of the 3000 with those passionate to pray for America! We stir ourselves to expect to see You act! In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

God is waiting for our corporate cry and He will answer us!
