Kingdom Minded Prayers

The Body of Christ has a problem. We tend to look to the Lord for what He can do for us. We have lost the ability to pray for souls, because we are focused on what we drive and what we eat and where we live. The things of the Spirit are taking second place. We should be praying for the lost and for the healing of the sick and for the strengthening of the saints and other Kingdom matters. We should be focused on what God is doing in the earth, how is He lining up history into His plan. And, when we ask Him about those things are we asking for His reasons or our own? Saints, let’s leave the temporal things behind and focus where He would have us focus.

“You desire and you do not have; you murder and envy and you cannot obtain; you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask; you ask and do not receive because you ask wrongly, so you can spend it on your passions.” (James 4:2-3; NET)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • We need to repent, Church, for ourselves and the Church, for the small, self-centered way we have been largely praying.
  • Ask God for greater faith, so that you can ask Him what to pray and how to pray for what is on His heart daily.
  • Ask Him for a greater level of trusting Him that He will meet Your needs as you prioritize His desires.
  • Put that into practice right now.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, forgive me and forgive the Church-at-large for our self-centeredness. We have such limited vision, Lord. We know the needs we have daily, and those things are easy to pray for. We don’t understand that You desire something so much more! You want to partner with Your Church in prayer for what is on Your heart. You want us to intercede for nations and Your Kingdom purposes. You want us to pray for the lost, the prodigals, the sick and the oppressed of the devil. You want America to be saved in a day. Lift up our eyes and our hearts to come up a level in our intercession. Tell me what’s on Your heart today, Lord. Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I will position myself to hear what is on God’s heart every day, and I will learn to pray Kingdom-sized prayers, especially for the lost of the United States.

God is Redeeming Lost Time

“The enemy is attempting to convince many of you that there is a delay upon you, but the truth is there is a new day upon you! God is redeeming lost time. The warfare over the vision, the opposition over the vision, the road-blocks over the vision He has given you, as hard as it has been, rejoice! For it has set you up for greater increase, favor and breakthrough than you could imagine. Jesus said, ‘I am redeeming lost time. My people will have the last laugh, the laugh of victory in their vision and I am now releasing the winds of change and double portion acceleration. This is happening to not only see the time they have lost because of this opposition restored, but they will move into an increase on their vision, they will have more than they had before.’” (Lana Vawser)1

“I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray the Word of the Lord from Lana Vawser over your life.
  • Pray it again with the United States in your mind.
  • Ask the Lord to show you what He has planned for your life and for America.
  • Get ready for rapid increase. Let hope arise in your heart and worship Him!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, the enemy is trying to convince me that I am never going to see the things You have said to me come to pass. He is telling me that the nation is never going to shift. Thank You, Jesus, that You are turning things around. Help me to see the future as You see it! Help me to shut my ears to the enemy’s mocking voice and to listen carefully for the encouragement of the Holy Spirit! Help me to line my thinking up with what I know about You and Your desires and Your ways. May the Word of God be my stability and foundation and the Word of the Lord be manifested in my life and in America. I receive the acceleration and increase, Lord! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the plans the Lord has for me and the USA are for peace and not delay or disaster. They are plans full of hope for a bright and restored future!

At the Name of Jesus

“There are times when things seem hard and situations are absolutely impossible. Divisions among people groups, religious groups, generations, etc., hold us back from expanding Your Kingdom. These days are upon us now. In these days, we must lift up the Name of Jesus, that Name before which every knee must bow. We will lift that Name up over the Middle East, over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, over racial and religious tension. We speak into the storm of terrorism and tension just as Jesus spoke into the storm, ‘Peace, be still!’ We say, ‘Holy Spirit, hover there.’” (Hannah Sheets)1

“The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep water. The Spirit of God was hovering over the water. Then God said…” (Genesis 1:2-3a; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Exalt the Name of Jesus!
  • Exalt His Name over chaos in the earth, tragedies, disturbing news stories.
  • Exalt His Name over religious division, doctrinal differences, differing belief systems and personal opinions.
  • Exalt the Name of Jesus over hatred, ideological walls and cultural barriers.
  • Declare that at the Name of Jesus every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Him as Lord.
  • Call for Holy Spirit to come and hover over all of these things, recreating them according to His Divine plan!

A prayer you can pray:

“Jesus, You are the answer. So, we exalt Your Name. We exalt Your Name over chaos, over news, over tragedies, over “he said”, over “she said”, over doctrine, and over personal belief. Lord, we exalt Your Name over personal opinions, over hard-to-discern situations, and over hatred. Jesus, we exalt Your Name over walls and barriers. We exalt Your Name, the Name that is above every Name, the Name at which every knee will bow and tongue confess, the Name that is lifted high above every other name, the Name of Jesus!”1

Today’s decree:

We decree that Holy Spirit will come and hover over the nations and He will reveal Jesus!

Civil Reformation

“In this next four years and extending into the next eight years, we will contend for a civil reformation movement. We don’t just want civil rights. We want civil reformation. We want reformation among First Nations people, African American people, Asian Americans, Latinos, and among Caucasians. We call forth a civil reformation where it won’t just be a Band-Aid over the wounds, but where there will be a deep healing of the wound. Reformation will come!” (Becca Greenwood)1

“Come on! Let’s return to the Lord! He himself has torn us to pieces, but he will heal us! He has injured us, but he will bandage our wounds!” (Hosea 6:1; NET)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Agree with the prophet and cry out for a civil reformation in America!
  • This goes beyond civil rights and must be a creative work of God, so decree it out of your mouth and into being! Heal our societal wounds, Lord, and grant us reformation in our laws and in our government responses to injustices!
  • Deeply identificationally repent for the sins of racism and injustice in our nation.
  • Intercede for every man, woman, child and youth, that their hearts would be healed of any actual or perceived injustice, especially if suffered at the hands of government leaders and employees.
  • Say, “Set our people free!”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I see Your Spirit being poured out all across this land. In every people group, men women, children, and youth, I see Your Spirit being poured out. I see simultaneous supernatural combustion happening in each of these people groups. Let the civil reformation come forth for the Native Americans. Let the reformation come! Let new legislation and new justice come and remove the old antiquated laws, so Americans of every people group will no longer be bound. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

A civil reformation has begun in the United States!

We Must Be United in This Effort

“I’d like to begin my remarks today by sending the thoughts and prayers of the entire American people to the victims of the terrorist attack in Manchester. I want to send our condolences to the many families who lost their loved ones. Horrific, horrific injuries. Terrible. Dozens of innocent people, beautiful young children savagely murdered in this heinous attack upon humanity. I repeat again that we must drive out the terrorists and the extremists from our midst, obliterate this evil ideology, and protect and defend our citizens and people of the world. All civilized nations must be united in this effort. This trip is focused on that goal: bringing nations together around the goal of defeating the terrorism that threatens the world, and crushing the hateful ideology that drives it so hard and seems to be driving it so fast.” (President Donald J. Trump, “Remarks by President Trump at the Israel Museum”, 5/23/17)

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Weep with those who weep and pray for the families and friends of those lost in the bombing in Manchester, England. Pray that the wounded and the traumatized fully recover.
  • Intercede for the heads of many nations and their advisors to be able to work together to stop this common foe—terrorism.
  • Declare that the demonic ideology of radical Islam would be crushed by the hand of God, so that the captives of it may be free to find the One that loves them— Jesus, precious Jesus.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, our hearts are overwhelmed with grief. We have lost more of our young to radical Islamic terrorism this week. We grieve with those that grieve. We ask You to pour Your healing virtue out on those wounded in body or mind, Lord. We can never let this become common in our hearts and minds. We cannot accept this as our new “normal”. No! We ask You to give strategies to our nation’s leaders, the military leaders and the finest minds among us. Reveal solutions that stop the enemy in its tracks. Give us natural tactics, as You move to destroy radical Islam spiritually, revealing Jesus to the lost, saving their eternal souls. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that the nations will work together under the direction of the Holy Spirit to unravel radical Islamic terrorism for the sake of the timeline of God.

Blessing Israel

“This is a land filled with beauty, wonder, and the spirit of God.  I’ve been amazed by the glorious and beautiful monuments and holy sites, and the generosity of your incredible people.  Because it’s all about the people.  I was deeply moved by my visit today to the Western Wall.  Words fail to capture the experience.  It will leave an impression on me forever. Today, we reaffirmed the unbreakable bond of friendship between Israel and the United States — a friendship built on our shared love of freedom, our shared belief in human dignity, and our shared hope for an Israel at lasting peace.  We want Israel to have peace.” (President Donald J. Trump, Remarks to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Jerusalem, Israel, 5/22/17.)

“I will make you a great nation, I will bless you. I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you, I will curse. Through you every family on earth will be blessed.” (Genesis 12:2-3; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. (Psalm 122:6)
  • Thank the Lord for the long-time friendship the United States shares with Israel.
  • Intercede for God’s perfect Will in the Middle East, including protection for Israel in the midst of her many enemies.
  • Speak words of blessings over Israel and receive blessings from the Lord to America and to your own life, as you are aligning with His Word.
  • Ask that Israeli Jews would see that Jesus is their long-awaited Messiah.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, the nation of Israel is dear to Your heart. Surely it only exists as a result of the fact that You prophesied it into existence and You have joined the battle to fight on their behalf. You love every individual living in every Middle Eastern country, but this people are Your example through the ages – Your prophetic sign – and You will ensure that they remain blessed and protected in Israel. I pray that Jerusalem shall ever exist in Your love and peace. Thank You that the United States is a friend of Israel. I bless Israel today and pray that the Jews would come to know Jesus (Yeshua) is their beloved, watched-for, Messiah. Reveal Him, Lord. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the United States shall remain friends with Israel and Israel shall remain protected under the hand of the Most High, and that Jesus shall be revealed to the Jews as the One True Messiah!

The Beginning of the End of Terrorism?

“America is a sovereign nation and our first priority is always the safety and security of our citizens. We are not here to lecture—we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship. Instead, we are here to offer partnership – based on shared interests and values – to pursue a better future for us all. Here at this summit we will discuss many interests we share together. But above all we must be united in pursuing the one goal that transcends every other consideration. That goal is to meet history’s great test—to conquer extremism and vanquish the forces of terrorism.” (President Donald J. Trump, Arab Islamic American Summit, Riyadh, Saudia Arabia, 5/21/17)

“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:1-3; KJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Today was a historic moment. You can watch the entirety of President Trump’s speech here.
  • Intercede for these leaders to be able to work together and find solutions to begin to undo terrorism in the nations.
  • Thank the Lord for Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the King of Saudi Arabia, for his honoring of President Trump, and his gathering the Islamic nations together to find solutions to global terrorism.
  • Pray that Christians in the United States would seek the Lord for understanding and biblical timing of the activities we are seeing. Time is needed for harvesting souls. Open doors to these nations are needed, as well.
  • Ask for the souls of those the enemy is deceiving into thinking they are instruments of Allah to expand his kingdom through terrorism. They are being destroyed by this false god and destroying many others, as well.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You love the peoples of the world. Some are held captive in the darkness of Islam. Some of those held in that darkness truly believe they are doing the right thing, but the enemy has borrowed them and they have become instruments of global terror, destroying themselves in the process. Intercede for the world leaders who have come together to examine this situation and come up with solutions. Bless King Salman of Saudi Arabia for his boldness and wisdom to gather the nations. Thank the Lord that he can see something in our President that can help, therefore he welcomed him and honored him with respect and celebration. Prepare the harvest fields of the earth, Lord. We are going in. In Jesus’ holy name, amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that the Lord is setting the world’s stage for a great harvest of souls.

Awakening IS Coming

We will wait, worship, listen, decree and appeal to heaven. And we WILL change things, recapturing the destiny of Heaven for America and resetting her course to its God-ordained destination. If you believe God answers Spirit-led appeals and Biblical decrees; if you believe the God who birthed this nation can rebirth it; if you believe a Third Great Awakening can change everything and IS COMING to America, let’s write history together. We are gaining momentum. We are turning the tide. We will win.

“You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; And light will shine on your ways” (Job 22:28; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • If God started something for His purposes, then we can believe he plans to finish it. Tell the Lord that you want to participate with Him and decree His Will for this nation.
  • Decree that as He has birthed this nation and has a plan for it, so shall this nation fulfill His Will for it. Decree that He can rebirth America!
  • Decree that Awakening is coming to the United States, as well as many other places around the globe. Tell the Lord you want to be a part of it, together with your children and grandchildren.
  • Step into the gap and continue to intercede between the way things are and how they should be in America.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I believe that You started something in this nation over two hundred years ago. You had a plan and You plan to see it come to pass. I decree that Your Will will be done in America, Lord! I decree that what You birthed You will rebirth to get us back on track with Your plan. I decree that a third Great Awakening is at hand in this nation and in the nations of the earth. I will see it sweep many into the Kingdom and I will see You exalted and Your glory manifested! (Keep interceding between the way things are in our land and the way you know God wants them to be.)

Today’s decree:

The Church is beginning to boldly decree the Will of God into the nation and we will see the tide turn and His glory fill this land from sea to shining sea!

Let the Heart Cry of Justice Be Answered

There has been a deep cry for justice among the people of color in our nation. “I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”1 “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”2

“The LORD is exalted, for He dwells on high; He has filled Zion with justice and righteousness.” (Isaiah 33:5; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray for the hearts of the Native Americans to be healed from the effects of unrighteousness and injustice.
  • Pray that all of the people of color living in the inner cities would be healed of the effects of racial injustice.
  • Pray for Asian Americans to be healed of the effects of injustices they have suffered.
  • Ask the Lord to send rivers of healing to wash away all injustice and let the revival begin!

A prayer you can pray:

God, go to every Native American reservation and fill it with righteousness and justice. Let the Native people feel Your heart of justice, God. Bring healing. Then, go to the inner cities. Fill all the inner cities with justice and righteousness. Satisfy the burning desire in the hearts of the people for justice. Answer the prayers of the mommas and the grandmothers. Answer the prayers for the salvation of their sons and daughters and their grandsons and granddaughters. To the Asian community, we ask You speak to their hearts and draw them. The foundation of Your throne is justice, so let justice roll like a river from Your throne into these people groups. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that God will heal the effects of racial injustice in the hearts of the people of color in America.

Honoring the Hispanic Community

“Hispanics are the key to the revival we have been seeking in this nation. They are not a minority, but the fastest growing people group in America. Spanish is the primary language spoken in more than 1/3 of all U.S. households. The Hispanic culture is one that honors ‘Family’. The key to ‘Life’ and to overturning abortion in America is the Latino community. Abortion clinics have been raised up in Hispanic and African American communities to fulfill a genocidal vision. It is time for those living in these communities to rise up and call for the removal of those clinics from their communities!” (Jeremy Burk)1

“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” (Romans 12:10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask the Lord to amplify the voices of Hispanic Americans until their voices are clearly heard in this nation.
  • Tell the Lord that you are personally making room for this important American people group—that you will make room for them and cheer them on!
  • Thank the Lord for the value Hispanic Americans place on Family and on Life.
  • Ask Him to blend these two passions together until there is a cry for the ending of abortion in their communities.
  • Declare that abortion clinics are closing, especially in predominately Latino and African American nations.

A prayer you can pray:

“Lord, we believe that Hispanic Americans are the key to revival in America. We ask You to amplify their voices. Amplify their hearts for ‘family’. We ask you to take their love for Family and unite it to the message of Life and raise up a message that cannot be ignored in this country. We call for the abortion clinics that have been raised up in Latino and African American communities to be closed, not because white people call for them to be closed, but because Latino and African Americans call for them to be closed. Raise up what we call ‘racial minorities’ to be the majority voice for Life in this nation! Thank You, Jesus. Amen.”1

Today’s decree:

I decree that Hispanic Americans will be seen and heard and will be the significant key to revival in America and in the ending of abortion.
