The Turnaround is Less Than a Month Away!

As we are one month from the opening of The TURNAROUND Conference in Washington, D.C., let’s join our hearts together with the Lord, asking for His purposes to be accomplished during this historic gathering. Can you make time each day this week to focus prayer on the practicalities involved in hosting such a major event? These aspects are important to creating a place where everything and everyone present, including those attending via Livestream, can enter into a spiritual atmosphere, receiving assignments and opportunities unhindered, without distraction, interruption, or dysfunction.

“Put your heart and soul into every activity you do, as though you are doing it for the Lord himself and not merely for others.” (Colossians 3:23; TPT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

For:

  • The DSM Conference Coordinator and the entire Administrative Team
  • Great grace and efficiency in completing assigned tasks.
  • Divine health, rest, and energy for all
  • Wisdom and understanding in working through every situation
  • Coordination of all volunteers who will work the conference with the DSM Staff
  • Tech Team, working with audio, video, and Livestreaming as they prepare, set-up, and operate all video and audio systems during the conference, and tear-down afterwards.
  • All equipment (audio, video, internet, Livestreaming, etc.) to meet every need to function properly throughout the conference
  • Transportation and safe arrival of DSM truck, trailer, and things inside (equipment, supplies, etc.); protection against every potential vulnerability or attack from the enemy.
  • Drivers to be protected and fully alert throughout the trip and good weather as they make the trip from Colorado to D.C., and back again

A prayer you can pray:

In the name of Jesus, we join together to decree that everything that the DSM staff, administration, technical teams, and volunteers put their hands to is unto You and for Your glory. We decree divine protection over each team member, including all interaction and coordination with hotel providers and vendors, and over the function of every piece of equipment needed. We decree that every scheme of the enemy against any person and all equipment associated with The TURNAROUND is being exposed, extracted, and eliminated now, and that by the Blood of Jesus every person and all equipment is secured and sanctified for the purposes of the Lord.

Today’s decree:

We decree supernatural grace over the preparation and execution of all the behind-the-scenes work needed to fulfill the assignment given to Dutch Sheets Ministries for The Turnaround, and that every purpose of the Lord is completed with excellence in the name of Jesus.

The Turnaround Event is SOLD OUT. Learn about the LiveStream here.

Room at the Inn

“Marianne Donadio was 17 when she found out she was pregnant.  At first, she felt like she had no place to turn. But when she told her parents, they responded with total love, total affection, total support. Marianne bravely chose life and soon gave birth to her son. She named him Benedict, which means blessing. Marianne was so grateful for her parents’ love and support that she felt called to serve those who were not as fortunate as her. She joined with others in her community to start a maternity home to care for homeless women who were pregnant. They named it ‘Room at the Inn.’ Today, Marianne and her husband, Don, are the parents of six beautiful children, and her eldest son, Benedict, and her daughter, Maria, join us here today. Over the last 15 years, Room at the Inn has provided housing, childcare, counseling, education, and job training to more than 400 women. Even more importantly, it has given them hope. It has shown each woman that she is not forgotten, that she is not alone, and that she really now has a whole family of people who will help her succeed.” (President Donald J. Trump)1

“This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him.” (Deuteronomy 30:19-20a; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for each woman who has chosen life for her unborn child, when her circumstances were challenging. Bless them for being brave.
  • Thank the Lord for the men who fathered children, who were not aborted, but stood with the woman’s decision. Bless them for supporting life.
  • Thank the Lord for parents and others in these women’s support networks who helped them in their life decisions. Bless them for not judging, but choosing the life of the new little one, instead of thinking of their own reputations.
  • Many ministries have unfolded after life-choices were made. Pray for the success of the Room at the Inn and any life centers or women’s support centers you know about in your community.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I and my family choose life! Thank you for the women who are brave enough to choose to keep a challenging pregnancy, even though they may battle great fear at times.  Thank you for the men who impregnated them who stood with their decision to choose life and did not pressure them to abort. Thank you for parents, family, friends, and church members who swallowed their pride, chose to love and not judge, and supported completely the woman’s choice to bring her baby into the world. I bless the many life centers and other ministries that help women who choose life. Grant grace to the workers and move on hearts to give finances to help in many ways! Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that this nation will be blessed for choosing life more and more every day!

New Life-honoring Legislation

“I strongly supported the House of Representative’s Pain-Capable bill, which would end painful, late-term abortions nationwide. And I call upon the Senate to pass this important law and send it to my desk for signing. Today, I’m announcing that we have just issued a new proposal to protect conscience rights and religious freedoms of doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals.  So important. I have also just reversed the previous administration’s policy that restricted states’ efforts to direct Medicaid funding away from abortion facilities that violate the law. We are protecting the sanctity of life and the family as the foundation of our society.  But this movement can only succeed with the heart and the soul and the prayer of the people.” (President Donald J. Trump)1

“It is impossible to do what God’s standards demand because of the weakness our human nature has. But God sent his Son to have a human nature as sinners have and to pay for sin. That way God condemned sin in our corrupt nature.” (Romans 8:3; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Some say we can’t legislate morality, but many of our laws do just that – toward or against God’s law. Rejoice and thank God for President Trump’s desire to sign righteous laws, laws that honor life, and laws that protect our freedom of conscience as Believers.
  • Intercede for the Pain-Capable Bill to become law.
  • Call your Senators and ask them to pass this important law.
  • Decree that life and family are the foundation of American society and they will be honored across the land!

A prayer you can pray:

God, thank you for President Trump, who desires to sign laws that honor life and righteousness. He has already reversed unrighteous laws that limited Believers’ freedom to choose to honor life, preserving their consciences.  He reversed former policy that restricted the states from defunding abortion facilities. He has determined that his administration will “protect the sanctity of life and the family as the foundation of our society.” Jesus, we ask for the Pain-Capable Bill to become the law of the land. We decree that life and family are the bedrock of who America is at our core. The nation stands on a foundation of honoring You and Your precepts. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the life-honoring, Pain-Capable Bill will become U.S. law!

Defenders of the Right to Life

“As you all know, Roe vs. Wade has resulted in some of the most permissive abortion laws anywhere in the world.  For example, in the United States, it’s one of only seven countries to allow elective late-term abortions, along with China, North Korea, and others. Right now, in a number of states, the laws allow a baby to be born [torn] from his or her mother’s womb in the ninth month. It is wrong; it has to change. Americans are more and more pro-life.  You see that all the time.  In fact, only 12 percent of Americans support abortion on demand at any time. Under my administration, we will always defend the very first right in the Declaration of Independence, and that is the right to life.” (President Donald J. Trump)1

“When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.” (Proverbs 29:2; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for a president that chooses and actively supports life, including proposing legislation to protect the unborn.
  • Identificationally repent that the United States of America is one of only 7 nations allowing late-term abortions. This is grievous!
  • Decree that America will end late-term abortions immediately.
  • Intercede for Americans to be disgusted with abortion, especially late-term, selective (to determine sex or health), and abortion on demand.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, thank you so much for President Donald J. Trump – a president that is open about promoting life! Bless him for proposing legislation that protects life and rolls back unrighteous abortion-on-demand laws. Forgive our nation for past legislation and Supreme Court action leading to us being one of seven nations allowing late-term abortions. God, forgive us! I decree that America will stop late-term abortions as soon as possible! Let a national disgust over abortion rise up across the land, until our lawmakers and judges eradicate it from our shores. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that every American from the time of conception is entitled to life!

Love Saves Lives

Yesterday, 1/9/18, was the National March for Life in Washington, DC. President Donald Trump addressed the marchers. “The March for Life is a movement born out of love.  You love your families, you love your neighbors, you love our nation, and you love every child, born and unborn, because you believe that every life is sacred, that every child is a precious gift from God. We know that life is the greatest miracle of all.  We see it in the eyes of every new mother who cradles that wonderful, innocent, and glorious newborn child in her loving arms. I want to thank every person here today and all across our country who works with such big hearts and tireless devotion to make sure that parents have the care and support they need to choose life.  Because of you, tens of thousands of Americans have been born and reached their full, God-given potential — because of you. You’re living witnesses of this year’s March for Life theme.  And that theme is: Love saves lives.” (President Donald J. Trump)1

“Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love” (1 John 4:8; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Are you able to choose life completely? Do any societal concepts push up against your understanding of what the Bible says? Talk with God about these things and where His love comes in.
  • Are you able to love those who have aborted their children, as well as loving those who choose life?
  • If you have had an abortion or helped someone attain one, have you fully forgiven yourself? If not, bring it to the cross now and let God fully love you, and heal your heart and mind. In Him, forgiveness is yours when you repent.
  • Intercede for God’s love for every unborn child to sweep across the hearts of this nation.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, show me my heart toward life from the moment of conception. Are there any places where I would compromise Your Word, because of my compassion for the women involved? Let’s talk this through until my heart lines up with Your Word. Am I walking in any area of judgement against those who have aborted their children? Forgive me. Help me love them as deeply as I love those who choose life. (If you participated in an abortion: Forgive me for my complicity in any abortion. I didn’t understand at the time that love stands strong for life. Let Your loving forgiveness for me heal my heart and mind.) Jesus, pour Your love for every pre-born child through the hearts of many people across the nation and make this a nation that chooses life! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that this nation chooses God’s love and life!

Looking to the Next Generation

“In Isaiah 28:9, the question is posed: ‘If the Church is currently in (an unusable) condition, how can we begin to shift things for God?’ Who can we begin to teach the right principles to and convey the message of the transformation? The question is asked in verse 9, ‘Those just weaned from the milk? Those just drawn from the breast?’ It is as if the prophet is suggesting that we may have to intentionally turn to a new, younger generation to get the job done! This is to display God’s eternal purposes and the manifold wisdom of God to the principalities and powers, the mandate for subduing and having dominion, the call to bring territorial transformation, the strategy to heal the land, the heart to restore people but also to restore all – the mission to cause the kingdoms of this world to become the kingdoms of our Lord and His Christ.” (Tom Hamon)1

“Who is the LORD trying to teach? To whom is he explaining a message? Those just weaned from milk! Those just taken from their mother’s breast!” (Isaiah 28:9; NET Bible)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede for the spiritual mothers and fathers to arise and make themselves ready to teach the younger generation the truths of the Gospel of the Kingdom.
  • If you are in the spiritual father/mother age group, ask the Lord to make this shift in your mind and heart.
  • If you are a Millennial or younger, ask God to send you and your friends spiritual fathers and mothers to teach you Kingdom ways, so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
  • Do a Bible study in the New Testament looking for teaching on the Kingdom.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we call forth the mothers and fathers that have placed themselves under Your Lordship and maintained a right relationship with You. Stir them to make themselves ready to impart the teachings of Kingdom life and Your ways to the next generation. As a father or mother, I ask You to help me to shift priorities around, so I have time. Give me a love for the young ones and give me what I need to give them. As a Millennial or younger individual, I ask You to send my generation the spiritual fathers and mothers you have been raising up for the last few decades. God, You have taught them so much that I need to understand of the Kingdom. Don’t make my generation start all over again. We know our need of them and will receive from them. Jesus, show us all, old and young together, the Kingdom strategies in Your Word, that we may walk together in them. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that God will bring together the spiritual fathers and mothers and the younger generations for Kingdom advancement!

Are You Ready for the Battle at the Gates?

In Isaiah 28:6, the Word declares that God will be “a Spirit of Justice to him who sits in judgement, and for strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.” I believe that is the call and the challenge in this season: to turn the tide of social injustice, unrighteousness, immorality and evil in our culture today. The gate is always where the battle rages to see who will control a city, a nation, a region and a culture of people. The passage in Isaiah goes on to say that those who are called to battle at the gate have lost their battle to influence the culture, because they are intoxicated or drunk on the world system. They have imbibed the worldly culture around them so much that they are no longer holy, different, righteous or influential for God’s cause anymore. (Tom Hamon)1

“But now those leaders are drunk. The priests and prophets are all drunk with wine and beer. They stumble and fall down. The prophets are drunk when they see their dreams. The judges are drunk when they make their decisions. Every table is covered with vomit. There is not a clean place anywhere.” (Isaiah 28: 7-8; ERV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Choose this day whom you will serve – God or the world’s systems.
  • Repent if you need to. Repent if you have so embraced the world and its delights and culture that lost souls can’t see any difference in you and the world around you.
  • Declare to the Lord the areas of society around you that you know you are called to influence – the family, the schools, government (at the local, state or national level), the military community, business, etc.
  • Intercede for that area of influence. Feel the effects of your repentance as you pray in His power and strength.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I choose to serve You. Forgive me for letting the world glitter in my eyes. Forgive me for thinking I can live any way I want, forgetting the world is watching. Show me how to be a light in the darkness without being religious. Show me how to go into dark places without living like those that are comfortable there. I declare that You have created me to invade the gates of (your area of influence) in prayer and action. I will intercede now with a cleaned-up heart that is grateful and passionate for You to move in this area of society! In Jesus name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree God will use us to turn the tide of social injustice, unrighteousness, immorality and evil in our culture today!

A New Era For the Nation

The Turnaround Conference is now about 5 weeks away. While the conference is sold out, we can all participate in seeing a turnaround for the United States, if we will fast and pray. Join us from wherever you are. Let’s keep praying for God’s plans for America to be revealed now. Let’s pray for His dream for America to become a reality in our generation. The spirits of Jezebel and Leviathan are serious threats to God’s plan, as they attempt, through chaos, fear, confusion, and division, to disrupt God’s message from being heard and acted on. Let’s believe together for the next phase of the worldwide prayer movement to solidify and begin to come forth when we meet next month, on February 22nd, in Washington, DC.

“See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.” (Jeremiah 1:10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Agree with God and His prophetic voices that a new era in America is beginning – Leviathan and Jezebel systems ae coming down!
  • Leviathan is a twisting of communication often seen in media. Intercede that the efforts of our President and other governing leaders will not be unnaturally misconstrued, but that truth will be reported by the media.
  • Jezebel is a seducing spirit that manipulates and undermines to get its way. Decree that every seductive, manipulative plan to undermine our current government’s best efforts will come to nothing.
  • Call for the interceding Church to arise!
  • Call for corporate unity in intercession among the Body of Believers, as we pray for national stability. Say, “The enemy will fear the roar of the united Church!”
  • Decree that the righteousness of God will undo all of the unjust and perverted acts of the evil one against the USA.

A prayer you can pray:

Father God, we come into agreement that we have entered into a new era for this nation. We decree that You will continue to guide leaders in their mandates of breaking down and destroying Leviathan and Jezebel systems that have been set up through the selfishness and unrighteousness of man. We declare in this era, which is the very beginning of this new era, that as we come and assemble in launching the next phase of the Appeal to Heaven movement, we will further dismantle the enemy’s plans for the nation through our prayers, decrees, and declarations. Let our corporate roar strike further fear in the heart of the enemy that opposes Your righteousness prevailing in this nation. Bring us together as one, oh Lord, as You and Your Son are one. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Church is being mantled to dismantle the enemy’s plans for America now!

A New Day of Intercession

I heard the Lord say through a prophetic dream that the praying church has now established air superiority over the nation. When you have air superiority, you win the war. We’re going to take out the Giants, because we are going to be able to drop spiritual prayer bombs on strongholds Satan has set up here—long-time, even generational, strongholds. What we used to pray about for 5 years, we will see turn in a few days or weeks or months, and the whole situation will change. We are going to see apostolic and prophetic teams of intercessors go out across the earth with great effectiveness!

“I know that I will be set free through your prayers and through the help that comes from the Spirit of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:19; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank God for the dreamers. Ask Him to give you dreams and visions – it is the season to see.
  • Has He given you a national “Giant” to focus your intercession on? This would be a societal structure that it is time to shift. If so, intercede now. If not, ask Him to give you one. We have been focused on racism in America and all its tentacles for the last few days. You can start there.
  • Ask God to join you to a team of others you can intercede with – there is more spiritual power in teams that God aligns.

A prayer you can pray:

I thank you God for those that help us see where we are going by receiving the dreams You give them. I bless the ones who are faithful to get up and write them down. Bless the interpreters, as well. I would like to dream dreams and see visions or interpret those of other Believers, so we can help the Body of Christ know what You are doing right now. (Intercede for the societal Giant He has given you to focus on or ask Him for one. If you can’t think of anything, go back and read through the last few days’ GH15 focus on racism.) Jesus, put me in an apostolic, prophetic team of like-hearted Believers to intercede with, so we can join forces to see these strongholds crumble as we pray! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that great freedom is coming for many in the USA, as the Spirit leads us to get the strongholds down!

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on 4/4/1968. A few days later, Democratic Senator from MI, John Conyers, presented the idea of a day to commemorate this leader of the modern-day civil rights movement. “Conyers would persist year after year, Congress after Congress, in introducing the same bill again and again, gathering co-sponsors along the way, until his persistence finally paid off,” writes historian Don Wolfensberger. Finally, in the 1980’s, a petition with over 6 million signatures, a song by Stevie Wonder, and a 20-year anniversary of Civil Rights Movement Veterans gathering at the Washington Monument, in Washington, DC, finally garnered enough attention. It was brought up in Congress again. It passed and President Ronald Reagan signed it into law. It wasn’t until the year 2000 that every state in the Union finally observed the federal holiday, and even then, only with some strange compromises. We aren’t quite there yet.1

“And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” (Luke 11:9-10; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank God for men like Dr. King and other Civil Rights Movement participants for their work to end racism in the United States.
  • Ask God to take the Civil Rights Movement another step forward in this generation, as we are not there yet.
  • Decide to be a part of the Lord’s strategy to heal America.
  • Decide to be persistent in asking God to end racism in this nation. Intercede whenever He encourages you to. Make a difference daily.

A prayer you can pray:

God, I thank you for all those brave men and women, such as Dr. King, who have helped our nation break free of the racist sins of the past. Thank you for their persistence. Thank you for a day like today to celebrate and remember their struggles. I want to be a part of ending racism in America. Grace me to join the battle in intercession, as well as in interaction on a daily basis. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the persistence of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., will be multiplied in the United States until racism is vanquished.
