Lifting Up Jesus!

More than 110,000 Christians of every possible background from across this nation and the nations of the earth gathered to worship Jesus together in the Los Angeles Coliseum yesterday. Many thousands more watched on God.tv or by live webcast. What a day! Lifting up Jesus, asking for rain, asking for fire, asking for revival fires kindled anew. Shaking our shoes to the heavens, we pledged to go live radical lives for Jesus! Do it! Live like a radical believer lifting up Jesus daily! Our nation depends on it!

“Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, ‘Rulers of the people and elders, if we are being examined today concerning a good deed done to a crippled man, by what means this man has been healed, let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by him this man is standing before you well.’” (Acts 4:8-10; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Jesus tells us to go and do the things He did. Repent of fear. Commit to live a radical Christian life—the real Christian life!
  • Get out a piece of paper and a pen and start writing down all the radical ways you showed people how real Jesus is this last month. No condemnation if that paper is blank, just get out there and do it now! Introduce Jesus to the lost, heal the sick, cast out devils, preach the gospel of the kingdom.
  • Walk your neighborhood and stop and pray in front of each house. Take the kids with you—they often love to pray! Let your neighbors catch you! Maybe they’ll come out and ask what you are doing. Be brave! This is your opportunity! God will back you up and give you the words to say to exalt His son, Jesus.

A prayer you can pray:

Jesus! I want to lift Your Name up every day that I live and everywhere that I go! Forgive me when I have hidden You away, feeling like my relationship with You is a private matter. That’s not what You say in Your Word. Make me bold! Make me brave! Show me how easy it is to talk to others about You and introduce them to You. This is the normal thing for a Christian—to lift up the name of Jesus! I will lift You up, Jesus! The nation will change as You are made known everywhere! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The name of Jesus will be lifted up all across America and this nation will change into a bold, Jesus-loving nation!

“Azusa Now|The Call” and “United Cry”

Today, in the Los Angeles Coliseum, there will be a gathering of over 80,000 mostly young people crying out to God for a Great Awakening to begin. On the opposite coast, over 30,000 pastors will gather at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D. C., to repent for the sins of the nation. You can join in prayer right where you are.

“This day is about turning America back to God. There’s another Jesus movement coming, another massive baptism in the Holy Spirit. We have been praying that stadiums would be filled. In a dream a friend had, he said, “We can only fly United.” The Church must unite. Only a united Church can heal a divided nation. God is going on a date with His Church today. (These are) not events, but a massive breakthrough for America—the birth of a new Holy Spirit movement.” Lou Engle1

“Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” (John 13:35; NLT) “Just as You sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world.” (John 17:18; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Repent for the sins of this nation.
  • Thank the Lord for this amazing date where He is meeting His Church from coast to coast across racial and generational lines.
  • Passionately ask Him for a new Holy Spirit-led move of God, a new Jesus Movement, a third Great Awakening.
  • Intercede between the apathy that the Church has been in and the fire God wants to bestow us with. Ask that it happen today!

A prayer you can pray:

God, we ask You to send Your Holy Spirit again, even as You did in the book of Acts, Chapter 2. We need a move of God that transcends the apathy and intellectualism of the American church today. We desperately need a fresh outpouring of Holy Spirit. The Church and the nation need You to show up and sweep thousands supernaturally into the Kingdom. Father, send your Spirit to fall on these gatherings and on all of those joining in prayer across the nation and on the lost all around each participant. Please do this, Lord! We want You in America! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that today will be a turning point in the history of the Church in America—a Holy Spirit-birthed movement is beginning today!

Soaring

Judge of the whole earth, you are calling us to a higher level. “Come up higher,” You say. And so we say, “We are soaring by the power of the Holy Spirit to a new level. We are not soaring as a normal bird would soar. We are soaring with eagle wings above the storm, so that we can hear You.”

“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:31; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Life has challenges. Go ahead and tell God about the challenges you are facing today. He cares about this. Ask Him to give you hope that He will intervene in these things that concern you.
  • Now, tell Him about the challenges our nation is facing. Ask Him for hope that He wants these things to change even more than you do.
  • Tell the Lord you want to see things from His vantage point in heaven, so that you can see that He has everything under control and so you can pray with a renewed hope.
  • Ask Him to help you hear His voice and pray the prayers He wants you to pray about all of these things. Get your Bible out and get ready. Now, pray!

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Lord, I am facing (tell Him what these things are.) My nation is facing (tell Him what these things are.) Renew my hope. I want to come up higher in the spirit and see things the way You see them. I know You have answers that I would never think of. I want to pray the way You want me to pray, so that my life and this country can line up with Your will and Your plan! In Jesus Name, Amen.

Today’s decree:

We have ears to hear what Holy Spirit is saying our ears have been opened to hear!

Identical Anointing of Jesus

“You are identical heirs with Jesus. You have the identical anointing of Jesus, not because you deserve it, but because of His grace, because of His love. You are an heir. At Christ’s resurrection, He issued an order to the Church—take My gospel everywhere! And, of course, they did!” Tim Sheets1

“The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.” (Romans 8:16-17; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read the above devotional and scripture out loud inserting your own name in the passages. You have the same anointing and inheritance that Christ has! You You have the same miracle-working power living in you. You have the same love of the Father that can move through you. You have the same eternal life and the same ability to invite others to receive it as well. Let that sink in.
  • What could our nation look like if every Christian really believed this that they have this inheritance and this anointing? What could our families look like or our neighborhoods and communities?
  • Pray that the Lord would take away your fear, give you a revelation of this truth and give you divine appointments as you take His gospel everywhere you go today.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I, (say your name), have the identical anointing and inheritance as Jesus does. I am your heir, just like Jesus is. I have access to the same promises, the same Holy Spirit, the same miracle-working power and the same endless well of love as Jesus does. You gave me all of this so that I can share the gospel of the Kingdom with those who are perishing. They can have this inheritance, as well. Our nation needs more believers understanding these truths, Lord. Let me be a walking, talking heir of Yours today.

Today’s decree:

The Church is rising up to understand that we are heirs with Christ and that we are carrying the love-soaked, miracle-working power of God everywhere we go today! Our nation is about to be changed!

Miracle Ignition

“His Presence is going to ignite miracles. It is going to ignite signs and wonders. It is going to ignite evangelism and the drawing of men and women to God by the millions. The first phase will be the prodigals. And, some of those are in America’s pulpits. The Church has never done some of what it is about to do.” Tim Sheets1

“Peter said to them, ‘Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off.’” (Acts 2:38-39a; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray and call in the great harvest of souls. Call in the prodigals, call in the loved ones, call in the lost.
  • Intercede for those ministering in the pulpits of America and for those in regular church attendance, that they will be convinced that they personally know Him! Some doubt, as their faith is rooted more in tradition and service, than in real relationship with Jesus. Help them know Him.
  • Be ready for the prodigals to come home. Don’t judge them for their past actions! Forget all of that! Show them how thankful you are that they have come back to God! Eat a meal with them and let them rest in the love you extend to them.

A prayer you can pray:

Father! Jesus! Holy Spirit! I join You in calling for the prodigals to come back to You and the lost to come to You. I pray for those sincerely serving You who are not sure they truly know You. I pray that You would miraculously touch their hearts in a very real way and show them how real You are! Let me never judge those who come to You or who return to You. Their past is just that. I want to be a part of helping them walk with You into their future in You! In the power of Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

The prodigals are coming home and the lost are coming to know Him! I will welcome them!

Unveiled Faces

“There’s something aggressive rising in the Church as the harvest of the end of the age is now being reaped by Holy Spirit. A ruling and reigning Church is arising assisted by angel armies. Something magnificent is starting to unfold. Holy Spirit activity is starting to dramatically increase. The promise of 2 Corinthians 3:18 is being fulfilled.” Tim Sheets1

“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Holy Spirit.” (2 Corinthians 3:18; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Do you feel different this year than you have in prior years? Do you feel more passionate, more bold, more faith-filled? This is the work Holy Spirit is doing right now in His Church. Thank the Lord for these things.
  • If you couldn’t say “yes” to the questions above, ask the Lord to do this work in you.
  • Pray that the Church would recognize that we are in a different season, a spiritual ruling and reigning season, and pray for all of the Believers you know who appear to be unaware. The future of our nation is dependent on the Church waking up!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, let me see how You have made me more passionate, more bold and where You have filled me with a greater faith than I have had in a long time. Give me even more of these things! I pray that the Church in America would wake up and start to pray like never before and start believing that the angels are warring with us for this nation. I pray that we will get out of our church building and make You known! Take us from glory to glory! Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is causing His Church to move from glory to glory in this nation right now so that He can be seen and known!

Modern Day Slavery

“The first step for many trafficking victims is recognizing they’re in slavery.  The next is accepting that they are not defined by it, but can embrace freedom and eventually fight for the freedom of others.  Much like trafficking survivors, our great nation is being called to recognize slavery in our midst, take a stand for freedom and lead the charge in establishing justice in the nations.” Alisa Jordheim1

“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; lovingkindness and truth go before You.” (Psalm 89:14; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that Believers will be willing to see the slavery in our midst.
  • Command every occult structure empowering traffickers and keeping the trafficked hidden to be dissolved.
  • Intercede for our nation that we would have the courage to dismantle and prosecute all parties involved in trafficking, from buyers to sellers.

A prayer you can pray:

Thank you Lord that America is a nation founded on freedom and has a responsibility to establish righteousness and justice for every citizen.  We declare that America will not be apathetic to the issue of slavery, but our eyes will be opened and our hearts pierced. We declare that every occult structure is being unraveled and traffickers and trafficking systems are being exposed and dismantled.  We declare that America is destined to be a righteous nation and we call her back to the legacy of freedom and justice for all.

Today’s decree:

I call America a righteous nation, one free from modern day slavery, with freedom and justice for all!

Liberty to the Truly Captive

“At this moment young American girls are being trafficked into the sex trade.  Today, I joined five of these girls for a tour of the Holocaust Museum.  This was their first look into the life of Anne Frank, a young girl much like them, trapped in a life she didn’t choose or understand.  Today, five young girls are beginning to understand they have an opportunity to embrace life, one that Anne Frank never had.” Alisa Jordheim 1

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare the captives of the sex trafficking industry shall all be set free in the United States of America. No more sex trafficking of women and children on our land!
  • Ask the Lord to fully restore each set-free captive and to set them on the path of the destiny He has created for them.
  • Intercede that the calling America has to be a protector of children will be fully redeemed.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we say America is a nation founded on freedom and liberty.  We call forth those held captive in the sex trade into that freedom, freedom from physical bondage, emotional bondage and hopelessness. We call them into their God given destiny. We declare that America is a nation called to protect its women and children and will rise to the role of a protector!

Today’s decree:

I decree that America will be a nation free from sex trafficking!

The Ekklesia is Rising

We must not depend on the government to fix our nation, nor place our hope in the next president. The Church must rise up and become the ekklesia (a legislative assembly or government) of heaven and charge into this next prayer movement believing that if we are faithful to pray, God is faithful to respond. Let’s get on board with His plan to raise up a great surge of prayer this year and turn this nation around.

“Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means rock), and upon this rock I will build my church (ekklesia), and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.” (Matthew 16:18; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Look again at the teaching by Dutch and the scripture verse. Notice that the Lord was saying He was going to build a “legislative assembly” on the rock that was Peter. That’s what the Church is supposed to be. Stop and think about this.
  • Now, stand up legislators, and proclaim the Word and the Will of God in your prayers and intercession.
  • Look at news reports today, ask the Lord what to decree and feel a new power in your prayers.
  • Call a friend and ask them to legislate in the heavenlies together with you, for where two or three are gathered in His Name, He is there in the middle of things.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, praying for this nation is about to change! As Your ekklesia rises up and does what You have planned for it to do—legislate in the heavenlies—things in the earth will need to line up with Your will. Justice will prevail, righteousness will no longer be trampled on and evil will not be called good. The things that matter to You will begin to manifest in the natural and the world around us will change and begin to glorify You! Amen.

Today’s decree:

God’s Ekklesia is realizing who they are, prayer is changing, and the prayers of the Ekklesia are about to change everything!

God Is Not Finished With America

Now, more than ever, our nation needs you—standing in the gap to release audacious Spirit-led prayers, bold decrees and radical prophetic acts to shift America back toward God’s dream for her. We were destined to be a bastion of light and hope for the nations of the earth. And while the prognosis within our borders seems grim, God is not finished with America.

“And now, Lord, hear their threats and give us, your servants, great boldness in preaching your word.” (Acts 4:29; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Tell the Lord that you are willing to boldly stand in the gap for this nation.
  • Pray that this nation would be the “bastion of light and hope for the nations of the earth” that He created it to be.
  • Get out your Bible and pray Psalms 75 out loud while you dream of all that the United States could be.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I am volunteering to be one of those that you use to stand in the gap and pray for this nation. Fill me with boldness as I do. Cause the United States of America to be a “bastion of light and hope for the nations of the earth.” Hear me pray Your own words in Psalm 75 back to You. (Pray Psalm 75 out loud to Him.) Remove those who would block Your plans and raise up those who would cause Your plans to come to pass. In Jesus’ precious Name, Amen.

Today’s decree:

The United States of America will fulfill her destiny to be a “bastion of light and hope for the nations of the earth!”
