A Report on “Giants Will Fall” – Part 3

Closely associated with praying for the Supreme Court is the abortion issue. There was much prayer this year regarding this hideous giant. We believe we are close to seeing the evil law, Roe vs Wade, reversed. This could be the most significant event of our lifetime regarding America’s future and destiny. This giant is falling. We also prayed against the giant of racism. Chuck Pierce spoke strongly into this, stating that the root of racism is anti-Semitism. Will Ford and Matt Lockett also shared powerful words regarding this stronghold. Indeed, their very lives, mingled together, are weapons against this hideous spirit. After they shared their story of racial healing and harmony, it was incredibly moving to see Black, White, and First Nations brothers kneeling together around Will’s ancestral kettle [you can read their story in their new book The Dream King]. We believe much happened in the spirit realm to bind the strongman and dismantle the stronghold of racism in America.

“David said to the Philistine, ‘You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head… All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.’” (1 Samuel 17:45, 46a amd 47; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • David ran to the battle against that giant taunting Israel, Goliath. Do not be afraid to engage these modern day giants! Gird yourself up with worship and get ready to overthrow these giants with prayer!
  • Stir up the faith to believe that abortion and racism are coming up by the root!
  • Intercede for someone who you know is Jewish.
  • Repent of any sense of anti-Semitism you may feel.
  • Intercede for someone you do not always get along with who is a different race than you. Note what happens to your heart. Let God minister there and fill you with His love and compassion.
  • Look for ways today to love, serve, and honor those who are a different race than you.

A prayer you can pray:

God, so much goes into shaping my mindsets and heart attitudes, and it is not all Your Word. Things others say may sway me. The ways my family members act toward others may be the way I naturally act. In the case of abortion, I may hate those who choose abortion, perform abortions, fund abortions, or support any of those. My anger may override any ability to lovingly intercede for those you love. I have to remember that all of these people have the same enemy I do – one that seeks to steal, kill, and destroy. He is a deceiver and the father of lies. Focus my intercession where it should be and break my heart for what breaks Yours! I purposefully choose to intercede for Jewish friends today. I intercede for Jewish politicians, media personalities, and neighbors. Reveal any inkling of judgmentalism or anti-Semitism in me. I give You permission, Holy Spirit, to root it out! (Pray also for someone you know is another race than you.) God, make us one, even as You are One. Let me go through the day today and love as You love, Jesus, especially where another’s race is different from mine. I want to be purposeful in prayer and action to destroy this giant of racism. Amen!

Today’s decree:

The giants of abortion and racism are falling in America!

Praying in Unity is Coming!

Make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.” (Philippians 2:2; NASB)

When we look around America today, we know that we are in a crisis; we’ve reached a tipping point. In the last election, many Christians got out and voted; however, many spiritual leaders across this nation have been saying one thing: “We’re concerned the church has gone back to sleep.” I know some of you have a similar concern in your heart.

The midterm elections are coming up. The Christian turnout for these elections will reveal whether we are truly going to be able to turn the nation and fully establish cords of righteousness, or if we’re going to slide backwards.

I want to encourage you. If you believe that abortion is wrong, if you believe that the blood of 60,000,000 aborted babies is crying out from the ground of the United States, and if you knew that turning the tide of a nation was within our grasp, even by one vote – would you vote? Would you pray?

I’m asking you to do both—pray and vote. Pray and act. I’m asking you to join us, as we prayer walk America, as we cry out for the nation. We know that God wants to do extraordinary things through our prayers. If we will pray, God will act.

We have developed this very important website called Pray in Unity.” Here, you can sign up to adopt your block in prayer. You will also find a daily devotion covering all kinds of topics related to the midterm election. In addition, you can sign up to receive a weekly email containing the prayer devotions for each week.

Also, beginning 9/28 through 11/6, Give Him 15 will post the daily devotionals, together with many other national prayer ministries.

It’s a 40-day season, beginning September 28 and continuing through Election Day, November 6. You can also visit many of the supporting organizations’ websites that are listed for additional national prayer resources. You will be praying in unity with thousands of different intercessors from across America, connecting with a coalition of prayer leaders that are standing together, and saying, “We are concerned about America.”

Would you join us? Pray in Unity. Go to the blue button that says, Sign Up.” We’d love for you to participate. Let’s turn the tide!

Esther Fast for the Court – Into Day 2

“When Justice Kennedy announced his retirement from the Court on June 27, we remembered how often we had prayed through the years for his reformation or resignation, in spite of the fact that a pro-life President appointed him. This is because, in 1992, he infamously switched his vote at the last minute and decided to uphold abortion in the pivotal case Planned Parenthood v Casey. That decision strengthened Roe v Wade and allowed the abortion total to now soar to more than 60 million lives lost!” (Lou Engle)1

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” (James 1:5; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare, “Our next Supreme Court Justice will be politically impartial and will follow the U. S. Constitution.”
  • Intercede the way open for the one who will guarantee “life”, as expressed in the Constitution, to every conceived child.
  • Close the door to any political pressure or persuasion affecting Supreme Court Justices.
  • Ask the Lord to give us a Justice who will humbly seek Him for wisdom, even as Solomon did. With that gift, they cannot go wrong.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, thank you for giving us a new Supreme Court Justice who will stay true to the U. S. Constitution. May they look to You and not be pressured to rule a certain way by outside political pressures or public opinion, or even their own opinions. We shut the door to that!  We open the door to the one who will guarantee the constitutional definition of life from conception. Let our new Justice humbly seek You for wisdom. You are more than willing to give them that gift, even as You gave it to Solomon. Our nation will never be the same if that grace-gift is bestowed on the justices that will ask for it. In Jesus’, name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Our Supreme Court Justices will not be politically swayed.

Esther Fast for the Supreme Court Begins at Sundown

“While we do not have clarity of revelation concerning the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh, the scriptures charge us to bind (or disallow) and loose (allow) on Earth in cooperation with heaven.We are calling a three-day Esther fast to stand in the gap on behalf of the nation and disallow anyone from being confirmed to the Supreme Court who will not ultimately reverse Roe v Wade. We declare, ‘LIFE’ over the empty seat and reserve it for God’s choice. We urge you to join us – along with thousands of Believers – beginning tonight, the evening of August 18, for a three-day Esther fast.” (Lou Engle)1

“Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.” (Matthew 18:18-19; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask God for supernatural discernment for the Ekklesia who will be fasting and praying regarding Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation. He is a good man and a good judge and he may be the one God has raised up. Bless him and do not pray anything negative against him.
  • Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding, as you pray. Intercede as the Holy Spirit leads, but harm no person in your intercession.
  • Disallow anyone to sit on the Court that is not meant to sit there. Release the seat to the one God has prepared.
  • Declare, “LIFE” over the vacant seat.
  • Prepare for your fast beginning tonight at sundown.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we feel the weight and the glory as we prepare for these next three days of fasting and prayer. Grant Your Ekklesia the grace of discernment as we intercede. We bless Judge Kavanaugh and say that this is not about a man, but about an open seat on the highest court in the United States. May our prayers be pure of heart and led by Holy Spirit as we lean on You to guide them. We will disallow anyone to sit in that vacant seat that will allow abortion in this nation. We will loose it only to the one that will remove this travesty from our land. We declare, “LIFE” over the empty seat. We will make ourselves ready, even as Esther was made ready. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We loose “LIFE” over the open Supreme Court seat.

Three Day Esther Fast for the Supreme Court Begins 8/18/18

“With the current vacancy on the Supreme Court now in focus, we are calling the Body of Christ to understand the full weight of the situation we are facing. We cannot afford to have a new justice seated on the Court who would ultimately rule to uphold Roe v Wade. Proverbs 14:12 teaches, ‘There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.’ So much is at stake. We must rely on clarity from heaven rather than simply do what we think is right. Judge Brett Kavanaugh has now been nominated to replace Justice Kennedy. Many are rejoicing over the choice of Judge Kavanaugh, however we, along with other concerned intercessors, do not yet sense a resounding ‘YES’ over this choice. He may very well be the man for the job, but then he may not be the right one. We believe the Body of Christ must leave nothing to chance in a moment like this.” (Lou Engle)1

There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.” (Proverbs 14:12; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Identificationally repent on behalf of the Body of Christ for natural thinking which assumes that anyone the President nominates is the right person to fill a Supreme Court vacancy.
  • Ask God for the fear of the Lord over Judge Kavanaugh’s upcoming Senate Judiciary hearings. They begin 9/4 and should last three to four days.
  • The stakes are high for this Supreme Court Justice. The lives, gifts, and destinies of untold millions of more babies are at stake. Decree Proverbs 14:12.
  • Declare the way open for the one of God’s own choosing!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, forgive us, Your Church, for assuming that anyone our President nominates as a Supreme Court Justice must be the right person for the job. Well-qualified does not equal God-chosen. We ask Your Holy Spirit to make clear to the Senators and the people observing the upcoming Senate Judiciary hearings if Judge Kavanaugh is, indeed, the person who will prevent the expansion of abortion in our nation. Is he the one who will even find a way to reverse it? God, let the cries from the blood of the millions of lost children rise up to You. Our nation is lacking the gifts of those lives lost. Everything they would have added to our corporate lives and nation’s destiny is gone. For that  reason, and many others, we say, “God will only open the way for the one of His own choosing!” Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The open Supreme Court seat is reserved for God’s perfect choice!

Silent Siege at the Court

Lou Engle, leader of TheCall, started a prayer movement at the Supreme Court that is a silent siege. Today, it is called Bound4Life and is led by Matt Lockett. He led young people to start praying at the Court with red “Life tape” on their mouths praying for the ending of abortion in America and a shifting of the courts. All silent. They have prayed there every day since October 2004—through rain, snow, and heat. They will not stop until God delivers America from the sin of abortion.

“Lay siege against it, build a siege wall against it, and heap up a mound against it; set camps against it also, and place battering rams against it all around.” (Ezekiel 4:2-3; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray, “Jesus, I plead Your blood over my sins and the sins of my nation. God, end abortion, and send revival to America.”
  • Decide to lay siege to the spirit of abortion in America, especially as it has gained entrance through the U.S. Supreme Court.
  • Declare, “Abortion, remove your filthy self from America’s shores! We will not tolerate this spirit of death that claims our unborn—the treasures of our nation’s future!”
  • Pray for Bound4Life and all of the Christians who pray daily at the Supreme Court. Pray as if you are standing there alongside them. Even check the weather report for Washington, D.C., for the day.

A prayer you can pray:

In the Spirit, I join those standing on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court today and every day to pray for the ending of abortion in America. I join them in their daily silent prayer. “Jesus, I plead Your blood over my sins and the sins of my nation. God, end abortion, and send revival to America.” Abortion, remove your filthy self from America’s shores! We will not tolerate this spirit of death that claims our unborn—the treasures of our nation’s future! Jesus, provide the Bound4Life intercessors the grace to stand against the enemy’s tactics through our Court. They are standing there today in the rain and humidity of a D.C. summer day. They aren’t distracted as a tourist would be. They are standing firm and engaged in a spiritual battle until a death culture is routed from our land. Turn the Court, Lord! Save us! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Christ’s followers are laying siege against abortion in America!

What Is It That We Are Fighting?

“In 1973 the death of the innocents was sanctioned by the judicial branch of the government. (Since then,) the culture of death has been seeking to overtake America. How can it be that America, whose founding fathers declared the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, would align itself with Naziism and Stalinism? Both of these twentieth century worldviews sanctioned the killing of the innocent. The horrors of the holocaust remain etched as one of the saddest chapters in history, yet the murders of (67 million) pre-born babies is as offensive in the eyes of God as the murder of Jews in Europe. It is past time to shift the judiciary branch of our nation’s government. It needs to be shifted from embracing a culture of death to the affirmation of life. Justices who want to rewrite our Constitution and apply internationalist law to our nation need to be removed. Justices who arrogantly override the will of the people expressed in legislative law need to be removed. It is time we get educated as to what we are fighting.” (Jim Hodges)1

For You formed my inward parts; you covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.” (Psalm 139:13-16; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Are we fighting with human justices or with a demonic principality? A door was opened to massive death in this nation by nine men. Identificationally repent for the sin of abortion in our nation.
  • Renounce any spiritual alignment with a spirit of death, euthanasia, Naziism, Stalinism, comunism and humanism.
  • Declare over America, “We choose Life!”
  • Close the door to internationalist law in America, as it includes a death culture and would override the Rule of Law we follow, based on our Constitution.
  • Decree the shifting of the justices – out with those who choose death and in with those who choose life!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, it is astonishing how all the enemy needs is an open door in one governmental high place and he comes rushing in to steal, kill and destroy life. Our citizens did not choose to let this demonic principality have access. Only nine Supreme Court Justices did that! The 76 million babies we have now lost to abortion far exceeds the losses of the Holocaust, which was abhorrent! Save us, Lord! We want this blood bath to stop! We, the people of God, choose Life for America! We close the door to international influence in our laws and Courts. We say the door to our courts is closed to any judge who is not pro-life! In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

We say “Life” will come through the Supreme Court!

Another Victory for Religious Freedom!

“A federal district court is blocking the federal government from enforcing the Obama abortion-pill mandate against Christian colleges in Indiana and California. ‘After reconsideration of their position, defendants with the federal government now agree that enforcement of the rules regarding the contraceptive mandate against employers with sincerely held religious objections would violate the RFRA (Religious Freedom Restoration Act) …’ the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, South Bend Division, wrote in its order in Grace Schools v. Azar. The Obama-era mandate forces employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception through their health plans under threat of heavy penalties. The Department of Justice, under the Trump administration, abandoned its defense of the flawed mandate… ‘Monday’s order fully affirms that freedom and provides permanent protection from the mandate,’ said ADF Senior Counsel Gregory S. Baylor. ‘These schools no longer have to fear being forced to pay fines for simply abiding by the Christian beliefs they teach and espouse…’ Another federal district court issued a similar order last month for four Christian universities in Oklahoma.”1

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:2; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Our courts are turning! Rejoice and thank the Lord!
  • Notice that the federal government defendants reversed their own position! Thank the Lord that He is turning hearts toward righteousness in our government.
  • Thank the Lord that our government is choosing Life! Ask God for His blessing on our nation, as a result.
  • Pray for Christian colleges, churches, businesses, and agencies to become aware of this decision, so they can renegotiate the terms of their health insurance options and make sure they are not inadvertently still funding abortion through their premiums.
  • Ask God to restore all funds lost to these schools from having to pursue this in court for years.

A prayer you can pray:

Wow, God! Persistence of these colleges has paid off, and even the federal government is now acknowledging that they cannot force Christian organizations to provide abortion options through the mandatory insurance they must provide their staff. God, bless America, as our government chooses life! Thank you that these schools pursued this until the government saw its error and decided “schools should no longer have to fear being forced to pay fines for simply abiding by the Christian beliefs they teach and espouse.” Restore the funds they lost as they fought for their religious freedom, which now affects us all. In fact, other Christian ministries and churches and schools should give them an offering for spearheading this cause for Christ! In the glorious name of Jesus, amen.

Today’s decree:

The government is having a change of heart and religious freedom is being restored to America!

The U.S. Supreme Court Upholds Arkansas Anti-Abortion Legislation!

“The United States Supreme Court will not prevent Arkansas from enforcing a 2015 law regulating medication abortions, despite Planned Parenthood’s wishes. On Tuesday, the court issued without comment an order rejecting the abortion giant’s request to block a 2015 law that requires physicians who dispense abortion-inducing drugs to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. The decision enables the law to take effect in the middle of July as lawmakers originally intended, though Planned Parenthood intends to continue challenging it in lower courts. …Planned Parenthood fears that the law would force the closure of its Little Rock and Fayetteville facilities, which only perform medication abortions.”1

Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it?” (Proverbs 24:11-12b)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Rejoice and praise God for life was upheld in the highest court in our land!
  • Continue to pray with Arkansas that abortion will end in their state.
  • Intercede passionately for those working at Planned Parenthood to have a revelation from God of what they are actually doing in the killing of the unborn. Say, “Forgive them, Father, they don’t understand what they are doing!”
  • Pray for each of the Supreme Court Justices. Click here for information about them.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we are so thankful and grateful for our U.S. Supreme Court Justices, as they refused to hear the case against the legislation in Arkansas that upholds life! Surely, You have heard our prayers! Thank you for bold legislators in Arkansas who passed laws to protect the unborn from being snatched from the womb. Each child has a purpose and destiny and they will get to fulfill it! Forgive the abortionists, Jesus. If they knew the ramifications of their actions, they would be appalled! Forgive them because they don’t spiritually understand what they’re doing! I pray they learn about You, because You died so they would not have to live eternally without Your love. I pray that our SCOTUS Justices make more decisions like this one! Amen.

Today’s decree:

All of America’s children will live and not die and will proclaim the goodness of God!
