2017 ACPE Word of the Lord – Introduction

“God overcame the sins of rebellious humans when He began to flood the earth and rested on the 17th day of the Hebrew month. Noah’s ark and its eight passengers rested on the mountains of Ararat on the 17th day of the seventh month of the religious year (Tishrei), right in the middle of God’s Holy period known as the Feast of Tabernacles. This year is the time for the breakthrough to victory. There will be a significant increase in miracles and signs and wonders. The anointing will be so strong that it will break significant and long-standing strongholds that have plagued people’s lives.”1

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” (Isaiah 10:27; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • We have been waiting for this year! Rejoice!
  • Declare that you believe we have come to a resting place where there is finally breakthrough to victory!
  • Stir up your faith that you are anointed in this year for breakthrough, then decree victory into every situation you need to see victory in.
  • Join the “National Breakthrough Prayer Call” at 6 A. M. in your time zone every Thursday morning to pray for your breakthrough and the breakthrough for others: (641) 715-0632 Access code: 504812#

A prayer you can pray:

We rejoice in Your Name, Jesus, for You have brought us through to victory! We embrace this year, 2017, the Year of Breakthrough! Things we have prayed about for many years will come to pass. I stir up my faith for this, Lord! I declare that the yoke that has held me down and held me back will be destroyed this year, because of the anointing God is providing for this reason. I decree (decree victory into your most challenging situations.) Thank you, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

2017 will be the year the yoke is broken off my life and the lives of those I am crying out for!

Restoring the Family Altar

As I was speaking in a conference, I saw a vision of our nation shrouded in darkness. Suddenly, a single home started to glow with living light, which then spread to others, rapidly transforming the entire country. Then I heard the voice of the Lord sayRevival will come to America when the family altar is restored.’ In that moment, I felt like I received from God the key to revival for our nation!” (Cheryl Sacks1 “’Why are people praying about the strongman over every mountain (or sphere of society), such as government and media, and yet have never prayed about the strongholds of the issues pertaining to the family?’ After thinking about this, I realized that we, as a prayer movement, needed to address the corporate issues that affect the first institution the Lord created—the family.” (Cindy Jacobs)2

“These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.” (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for showing us a key to revival in America—the relighting of the family altar in prayer.
  • Ask the Lord to strengthen believing families across America.
  • Pray for your own family and ask the Lord for prayer strategies for your family to know the Lord in fullness.
  • Get Cheryl’s book, The Prayer-Saturated Family, and use the resources and prompts to help you build your family altar.
  • Let your Pastor know about this and ask them to participate.

A prayer you can pray:

God, I thank You that You have revealed to the prophets a key to revival in America—restoring the family altar. We believe the Word of the Lord for this year. Strengthen our families as we learn to pray together more effectively, Lord. Let us not neglect this. Stir the hearts of the fathers and mothers to their children and may we not be neglectful in this. Grant us a deep relationship with You as a family. Thank You for providing resources to help us. Grant us favor to help get our churches and other families on board, as well. To Your glory, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The fire of the family altar will be restored in 2017 and will result in revival in America!

Welcome to 2017!

What exciting days we are living in! Watch for the world stage to get very busy, as it relates to the United States. Governing world powers will challenge our new President over Israel, energy, trade, immigration and other global issues. Internally, there will be conflict over the Supreme Court, what to do about Obamacare, abortion law, job creation and a number of other matters. Never forget that God is ultimately in control and that we look to Him for His path forward.

“And it will be said in that day, ‘Behold, this is our God for whom we have waited that He might save us. This is the Lord for whom we have waited; let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.” (Isaiah 25:9; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • This year must begin with worship!
  • Tell the Lord that you are looking to Him for salvation of our nation and of your family and friends. Acknowledge that He alone is Savior and Lord of the earth.
  • Decide that you will intercede this year on a whole new level. Ask God for the grace to do so.
  • Get a notebook and ask the Lord how to focus your prayers. Write down any scripture and/or insights He gives you.
  • Rejoice, rejoice rejoice! God is at work! He is answering our prayers in this year of Breakthrough!

A prayer you can pray:

I worship You, Lord God of the universe! You are Lord of my life and God over this nation. I exalt You and praise Your holy name! I refuse to look anywhere else for someone to put this nation back on a healthy, God-honoring track. I look to You and You alone to save us! The enemy is threatening our nation, Lord, particularly our nation’s new leadership. However, You will show me how to join many other intercessors and pray prayers Your way. I will document what You are doing, for this is going to be a year of miracle Breakthroughs! I rejoice in the God of my salvation! Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Behold, this is our God for whom we have waited that He might save us. This is the Lord for whom we have waited; let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation!

Truth

The dark is getting darker, but the light is growing brighter! It is becoming more obvious to those who have eyes to see that God is at work. Those who do not know the Lord, and who are governing and in positions of earthly influence, are making every attempt to make us all think that wickedness is okay and that darkness is the best thing. In fact, those of us who choose light are made to appear to be judgmental, divisive and lacking compassion. We had better know His Word. It is the only way we are going to be able to truly know Truth—right and wrong!

“You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” (John 8:32; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Do a word search for “truth” in the Bible. Learn and declare what “truth” is into the atmosphere.
  • Is any of this convicting you? Is there any place where you have aligned yourself with the world’s opinions, instead of the Word of God? Repent and ask the Lord to realign you.
  • Pray the news. Go to the news today, both local and national. Pray for truth in the situations you read about and pray the Word you just read into them. (Make this a regular habit.)

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, as I go research the word “truth” in the Bible, open my spiritual eyes to see what You want me to learn about Truth. If my life does not line up with Your Word, convict me of sin, Holy Spirit. I want to repent and get my thoughts lined up with Yours. I want to be able to see what You are doing right now. I don’t want to get my thought-processes from the media or by what governing leaders tell me I should believe. Separate the light and darkness in me and in this nation. Show me how to pray as I go to the news today, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I will know God’s truth and that truth will set me free!

The Discipline of the Lord

What a privilege it is to be a child of God! We get to be disciplined by Him! What? You say you don’t like discipline? Oh, rethink that! In the discipline process, He works sin and generational iniquities out of us. He refines us and sanctifies us, transforming us into the nature of Christ. We won’t all come out looking alike in some religious pattern. Rather, we will shine with His Presence and be able to fulfill the fullness of the call of God that He has planned specifically for us! What a great joy!

“In this all-out match against sin, others have suffered far worse than you, to say nothing of what Jesus went through—all that bloodshed! So don’t feel sorry for yourselves. Or have you forgotten how good parents treat children, and that God regards you as his children?” (Hebrews 12:4-5; MSG)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Invite God to discipline you, if need be!
  • Be brave and tell Him that You need His discipline to be everything He created you to be. Ask Him to make you ready and to provide the grace to bring you through it.
  • Our nation’s future is dependent on the Church, His beautiful Bride, maturing even further—becoming bold, living righteously, and having strength of character.
  • Intercede on behalf of our nation that it would be disciplined as well. God loves America and has a wonderful plan for this nation, so He will be happy to comply.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I invite Your discipline into my life. I may not like it in the short-term, but in the long-run, I will love who I have become. I also want to see more of Who You are. My eyes are often opened as I see You in a new role in my life. Grace me Lord to not give up as You correct me. Deliver me and clean me up! I want to make You known and not have anywhere in me that the enemy can grab hold of and pull me down with. Do this for the United States, as well! May we fulfill our destiny in this hour and glorify You, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We embrace the discipline of the Lord, knowing that He disciplines whom He loves—both we and America.

Separating the Holy and the Profane

Why are we accepting sin? Why are we accepting the ways of the world as if we have no choice? We act as if God is not watching! The Lord starts first at the Church when He cleans up a nation. He has to. It is just and right. We can’t expect the world to get its act together when ours is not. Aren’t you glad He loves us so much that He won’t leave us in our filth?

“Your priests violate my teachings and dishonor my holy things. They don’t distinguish between what is holy and what is unholy. They don’t teach the difference between what is clean and what is unclean. They ignore the days to worship me. So I am dishonored among the people.” (Ezekiel 22:26; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Come close to God today—very close. You are blood-washed, so you can come close.
  • Repent of any area of your life where you are not able to break sinful or iniquitous sin patterns. Don’t try to justify anything! Feel His forgiveness and His holiness wash over you.
  • Invite the Holy Spirit to show you what is holy and clean and what is unholy and unclean. Where you have trouble accepting the truth of His Word, ask Him to give you a divine exchange—His Truth for the lies you believe, even though you may not have realized it.
  • Read Ezekiel 22 and let Holy Spirit show you how to pray for the Church and the nation. Read it in the Message version, if possible.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I am so thankful that I can tuck in close to You. I am always welcome, thanks to Jesus’ blood shed for me! Coming close to You helps me feel the sin in my life and I give it all to You. Forgive me Lord and line me up with Your Word and Your plan for my life. Clean me up and help me be able to discern what is holy and unholy, clean and unclean in Your eyes. I want to be able to speak into the situations in my Church and in the nation that are contrary to Your Word, so clean my spiritual sight up and let me be holy, Jesus. I will read and pray through Ezekiel 22 and get this right. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God will straighten us up and give His Church the ability to show the nation the difference between holy and unclean.

Wisdom and Understanding

President-elect Donald J. Trump and his Cabinet members are going to need much wisdom to navigate their way forward. There are challenges, both real and imagined. Mr. Trump does not have experience in government, but he appears to be installing those around him that will provide what he is lacking. Natural knowledge will be very important, but those who know to seek the Lord for wisdom will be a greater treasure.

“The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord.” (Isaiah 11:2; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray Isaiah 11:2 above over Donald Trump. Take your time and let Holy Spirit show you how to expand your intercession for him.
  • Pray the same over his Cabinet choices. You can find the current list here. Bookmark the page and keep going back to it regularly as you pray for them.
  • Intercede for your Senators and Congressmen likewise. You can find them here and here.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I ask that you would lead Donald Trump by Your Spirit, Lord. Regardless of his depth of relationship with You, please grace him with a gift of wisdom. Teach him what he doesn’t know. Help him to continue to make wise choices of those he surrounds himself with. Where Cabinet members know You, grant them Your wisdom and understanding of how to use the knowledge You give them, paired with what they know of the natural realm, to lead our nation forward. Grant them all, together with our Congressmen and women, great skill and the humility to seek You daily. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

God desires to pour out His Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord on our nation’s new leaders.

Our Stability

We need God to show up! That’s what a Great Awakening is about – God showing up. We don’t need a great outpouring of emotion, although some may be emotional. We need change – change of hearts and lives, and societal change. We need confidence in Christ, wholeness and perseverance.

“People with their minds set on you, you keep completely whole, steady on their feet, because they keep at it and don’t quit.” (Isaiah 26:3; The Message)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Call for God to come to America.
  • Tell Him you will not stop until You see Him moving in unprecedented measure!
  • Thank Him for the multitudes of souls that will be saved and the change to society that is coming to America, as a result.

A prayer you can pray:

God, come to America! Look at us, Lord. We are in desperate need of You. Look at us, Lord. We have moved far from You. I will not stop crying out until I see your move. I will persevere in intercession for as long as it takes. Thank You for all of those who will be saved in this move of God. Thank You for the changes You are making in our nation Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that God is about to show up in a third Great Awakening in America!

Harvest Angels Coming in 2017

“An abundant harvest is at hand. I am releasing angels of abundant harvest into the nation. You will reap what you have sown. This is a double-edged sword. Where the enemy has resisted your harvest in years past, you will see a multiplication effect of blessing in your life. Doors will open unto you that no man can open. Opportunities will come your way that you never dreamed, imagined or even thought to ask for. Provision will enter your life from unexpected places.” (Jennifer LeClaire)1

“Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed, shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.” (Psalm 126:5-6; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Determine to look forward and not back.
  • Ask the Lord to remind you what you have sown. Don’t be afraid to ask. Write it down, if you want.
  • Declare that the enemy cannot hold back your harvest. Believe the prophets and thank the Lord that provision is coming!
  • Give a big shout of joy in advance of seeing your abundant harvest!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, thank you for the Word of the Lord through the prophets. I have felt like my harvest has been held back, but I won’t dwell on that any more. I will look forward with expectation and belief. Remind me how I have sown, so I can watch for Your faithfulness to me.  The enemy cannot hold my harvest back! Thank you, Lord, that harvest angels are coming! I will shout out my gratefulness! Thank you, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Harvest angels will open miracle doors and bring miracle provision in 2017!

Celebrating the Prince of Peace

“For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us;
And the government will rest on His shoulders;
And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace,
On the throne of David and over his kingdom,
To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness
From then on and forevermore.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.” (Isaiah 9:6-7; NASB)

“The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them. You shall multiply the nation, You shall increase their gladness. (Isaiah 9:2-3; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Merry Christmas! Read the above scriptures and stop and pray as the Lord leads you.
  • Read Luke 2:1-20. Again, pray as the Lord leads you.
  • We have a new national governmental leadership. Our hope is not in that leadership, but in the Prince of Peace. Pray for a partnership between America’s earthly leaders and the King of Kings.

A prayer you can pray:

Glory to God in the highest! On earth, peace and good will to men! We worship You this Christmas Day, Father! Thank You, Jesus, that You came to us! We exalt You as Wonderful Counselor, Almighty God and Prince of Peace. We acknowledge that You head a government of which there is no end. We ask You to draw our President-elect to Yourself and that You anoint Him to lead our nation in accordance with Your plan. May this be a nation filled with the Light of Christ, shining forth the glory of God to other nations of the earth. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace and good will to men!
