Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 4

[Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding coronavirus COVID-19. Go back and read the prior posts on Give Him 15, beginning March 28th, so we can pray these things into the Church and the global situation. Make sure as you pray through the conversation over the next few days that you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you.]

DUTCH: God is setting the stage for what is coming. I have been telling people that this is not just for America. I know that what God is doing here is not just for here. I run with people like you, Chuck, who are called primarily to the nations. So, I know that what God is doing in America is directly linked in His heart and mind with what is happening in the nations of the earth. And, what is on His mind is the harvest. We can’t lose sight of the forest for the trees. We can’t get so focused on this crisis, that we, as Believers, are not able to step back and ask what God is doing in His big picture.

CHUCK: Well, all you have to do is look at statistics and see we have had a lot worse crisis in the past. We’ve had a lot worse flus. We’ve had a lot worse issues. I think the thing about this is the unknown capability of it. It is not knowing how it will progress that is changing the course of the world. God is taking this and causing nations to re-evaluate how they operate. 

Let’s talk about the nations. You always have such a good understanding of what God is doing in the nation and I have always gone to the nations. I have been called to many, but to a few of them especially, like to China and Russia. I have a lot of background and history of what’s happening there. 

Last year in September at Rosh Hashanah, I was looking at what 80 is about. 80 is about our voice. It’s about breath. Look at what the crisis is over—voice and breath. It’s happening worldwide. How will the voice and the breath of God enter into nations? 

I have a long history of praying for China. I have already been there 3 times this year, meeting with various leaders who help the Church advance in China. In 1986, the Lord showed me China in 10-year increments. He said something then that has never left me, “Starting in 2020, China makes its biggest move toward economic domination worldwide.” A watchman would then start watching China in September 2019. How are they going to make that economic move? 

“One is calling to me from Seir, ‘Watchman, what time of the night? Watchman, what time of the night?’ The watchman says: ‘Morning comes, and also the night. If you will inquire, inquire; come back again.’” (Isaiah 21:11-12; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Consider the wisdom of God. Ponder this: His ways are not our ways; His ways are higher than ours. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. (Proverbs 2:6)
  • God wants us to watch. He wants us to see. He wants us to intercede. Choose to be the one standing on the wall, jumping in the gap. Inquire of the Lord.
  • Shut all media down today and worship for an hour or two. Put on your favorite instrumental worship music, get your Bible, sit still, and listen. 
  • Say what you hear or what the Lord shows you. 
  • Intercede for the U.S. economy and how it is related to other nations of the earth.
  • Intercede for the economic relationship between the U.S. and China.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, You are wisdom. You are the author of knowledge and understanding. You have placed things in the earth designed for us to discover and to search out. We must process things we are pondering with Your Holy Spirit, or the enemy will take the knowledge and twist it and use it for his own destructive ends. Lead us, Lord, and teach us. We will inquire of You. We will watch. We will pray. We will proclaim what You put in our hearts and mouth to declare, even when we don’t understand and can’t comprehend. Lord, we will set time apart for You in this quiet season. We will find the time to shut ourselves in with You, because we are in unique days. We have not been this way before. We want to know what things are shifting in the earth. We want to know You more, hear Your voice, see what You want us to see in Your Word, and declare what You want us to declare. 

We are in a global economy and the economies of nations are shaking. Everything has gone into lockdown and whole industries are suffering. Some may never recover. Some will not look the same. Look how quickly something beginning in one country has affected the whole earth. Look how quickly the governments of the earth moved to protect the people’s lives, but look at what has happened to their livelihoods. What is China’s role in all of this? Show us how to pray for our economic relationship with  China. What will it look like on the other side, Lord? How shall we pray? How shall we position ourselves to make it through? How do we position ourselves to reap the harvest? We look to You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Let the watchmen arise. Watch and pray, see and understand what the Spirit is saying to the Church.

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 3

[Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding the coronavirus COVID-19. Go back and read the prior posts on Give Him 15, beginning March 28th, so we can pray these things into the Church and the global situation. Make sure that as you pray through the conversation over the next few days you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you.]

CHUCK: Prophetic revelation for the year begins at Rosh Hashanah. In 2019, we started looking at the number 80, because in Hebrew, it’s the year 5780. I also started looking at 2020. I could see that it would be important that the two were aligned together. This would be important like never before, because this was going to be the year where the Lord started dividing the nation. He was also going to be looking at each nation and how they were responding to Him. He’s going to say, “This nation is really responding to me, but this one is rejecting Me more than it has ever rejected Me.” I think the Lord has answered your prayers, Dutch. I see this nation responding to Him. 

America is responding to God. Therefore, the division is getting longer and wider, and people can look and clearly see the division between the two factions that are in this nation. Righteousness seems to be rising.

DUTCH: I see exactly that. I have been encouraging people that everything has shifted. In this new era we’re moving into, it has become clear to me that God has raised up a remnant of intercessors. He has raised them to a very high level of maturity. What the maturity in the prayer movement and in the prophetic movement has produced is that we are seeing the nation turn now. 

There were things that took place before now—the Russia controversy and the impeachment process. As unhealthy as that all was for the nation and the President, all of that was drawing this line that has become a clear line of demarcation. People are starting to understand. We have been able to see where Believers stood. Now, we have this whole other segment of the population that is so tired of the direction we’ve been going. They’re ready for change. Some don’t even know what that change needs to be. I don’t even think our president knows what that would look like, even though he’s always trumpeting change. 

“If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but is coming to an end.” (Mark 3:24-26; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord for His wisdom and revelation.
  • Ask the Lord to give You His Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation. We must have an Issachar anointing to understand the time and the season we are in.
  • Do you understand that the Lord is dividing, sifting, and sorting in many arenas right now? You see it, but did you know it was Him?
  • Are you seeing what He needs you to see in the division?
  • Proclaim Mark 3:24-26 over America, “A kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. A house divided against itself is not able to stand. Satan has risen up against himself and is divided. He cannot stand and is coming to an end!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You are the only wise One. You are the all-sufficient One. You know the end from the beginning. Your Holy Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation can be imparted to those who have made Christ their Lord and Savior. We need the anointing that rested on the tribe of Issachar, who knew the times and epochs. Therefore, we can participate with You more fully and accurately, as You shift us into this new era. One thing we need to see is how You are involved in dividing our nation. You are allowing us to see the division clearly, because America as a nation is primarily choosing You and Your ways. Thank You, Lord. Show us how to intercede into this, so the nation reaps maximum benefit from it and can continue forward. We proclaim Mark 3:24-26 over America, “A kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. A house divided against itself is not able to stand. Satan has risen up against himself and is divided. He cannot stand and is coming to an end!” In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The nation is dividing, so we can clearly see.

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 2

[Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding the coronavirus COVID-19. Go back and read the prior post on Give Him 15 on March 28th, so we can pray these things into the Church and the national situation. Make sure as you pray through the conversation over the next few days that you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you.]

CHUCK: The Lord had to put the world in some Shabbat form. I call it, “A Divine Pause.” That’s how intercession works. God is saying, “We have to get some things in order, so we have a greater strength going forward in days ahead.”

Let me back up and say that last January I asked the Lord what He was saying for 2019. He said, “Plow through.” So, Dutch, you and I gathered in about 26 different places across America to really encourage God’s Kingdom people, His watchmen, intercessors, prophets, and apostles to rise up and start watching in a new way. This was especially for this year we are presently in. For you who don’t know, Dutch made it all the way through that journey until the last meeting. It was a great toll to plow up some things that needed to be plowed up. As we ended that tour, Dutch had to have some sort of rest. That’s what happens when we plow hard. We need to end in rest.

Since we plowed all year, where are we now? Let me tell you about some books that will give you a great understanding of what God is doing. Tim Sheets has a great book on this new era, The New Era of Glory. I encourage you to get it. Dutch has a book that helps us know how to watch and pray, Watchman Prayer. Then Robert Heidler and I wrote a book called, The Triumphant Kingdom. This is about how the apostolic Church is rising up, not the mega-church. 

Let me go back to August of last year when I started hearing what the Lord was saying for this new era. By September, we were entering into this new era of revelation. At Rosh Hashanah, which was in September 2019, you are crossing over into new revelation. This is the first month of the year on the Hebraic calendar, and God’s dearest month of the year, where He calls us to break old cycles. He calls us to enter into what He is announcing for the future.

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord and thank Him for this Divine Pause we are in!
  • Yesterday, we prepared our hearts. Today, ask if there are any other things you need to get in order to move forward in days ahead.
  • Read Hebrews 4. Have you learned to enter His rest? Consider the last era as over, your last assignment finished, and ask for the grace to do so.
  • Ask the Lord to show you what resources you, specifically, need to get prepared for your assignment in the new era.
  • Declare, “Old cycles are broken in my life and I am moving into the new!”
  • Decree, “Old cycles are breaking over America! This nation is moving into the new!”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we worship You! We exalt Your holy Name! Jesus, You are the entire focus of our lives. You are all that we need. You are everything. You have moved our entire nation, saved and unsaved, into a Divine Pause. We have never been this way before, but the prophets are telling us this is a very necessary season of rest. Therefore, we will embrace it. We will enter Your Hebrews 4 rest of God, individually, and corporately. We consider everything we have been doing to be in a holy reset. We may move on in similar assignments, but if we do, they will not be the same. Something will be different. Old cycles are breaking. The familiar is breaking. Habits and addictions are breaking. Things will be seen clearly. Nothing will be quite the same.

Show us what resources each of us needs to help us prepare to move forward. Give us revelation and understanding, wisdom and grace. We will each say, “Old cycles are broken in my life and I am moving into the new!” We decree, “Old cycles are breaking over America! This nation is moving into the new!”

Today’s Decree:

In the “Divine Pause”, we will watch and pray and learn, and get ready to move into the new era.

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 1

Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding the coronavirus COVID-19. Make sure as you pray through the conversation over the next few days you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you. I’m always asking myself in times like this, “What is the enemy trying to do and what does the Lord want to do?” It’s like Joseph said to his brothers, “You meant it for evil, but God had a different purpose for it.” 

I’ve been feeling from the start, as far as God’s part in it, that it’s about the aligning of the nations for what is coming. I am not implying He is doing it. I know it is destructive, but God always has a higher plan than what the enemy has to bring His purposes to pass.

Many of you know by now that Chuck gave a Word some months back pertaining to the coronavirus outbreak. So, here’s some of what he was sensing and hearing. He’s been seeking the Lord and will also be sharing some of what he’s hearing now and going forward. We’re going to share that dialogue between Chuck and I over the next few days. 

CHUCK: In the midst of the trial you (Dutch) have been going through physically, we know you’ll come back stronger than you’ve ever been before. Probably by August of this year, we’ll need your voice more than ever to step through into what God is saying to us. I was saying it before, but now I am seeing it. You’ve known me for years and I’ve lived on a timetable, which is a covenant timetable. I’m always looking for the Hebraic calendar for what’s going on. It’s not really around the calendar dates, but around the feast times, because the Lord always wants us to maintain a harvest mentality. Even in the midst of crisis, He wants us to maintain a harvest mentality, so we can get back into increase. So, that’s the real issue. How will we move back into increase? If we are all thinking that way, we are going to have some great strategies come forth from this time that I’m calling, “a Divine Pause.”

“Then David asked the LORD, ‘Should I chase after this band of raiders? Will I catch them?’ And the LORD told him, ‘Yes, go after them. You will surely recover everything that was taken from you!’” (1 Samuel 30:8; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask the Lord to show you how to prepare your heart for the next 12 days leading up to Passover.
  • Ask Him to strengthen your heart to move through this next few weeks.
  • Ask the Father to reveal to you how you will recover all and enter into the harvest season on the other side of this.
  • Whether you are an intercessor, a prophet, an apostle, or other leader, say, “My voice needs to be heard! Prepare me, Lord.”
  • Declare, “Some great strategies are going to come forth from this ‘Divine Pause’ the Lord has put us in.”
  • Decree, “I will surely recover everything that was taken from me!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, the enemy may have released this pestilence in the earth, but You are causing the Church to take advantage of it. You are going to prepare us for harvest. You are going to cause increase to come to us, individually and nationally. Is there something You would like me to do to get ready? How does my heart look to You? Am I fearful, doubting, or untrusting in any way? Is there any place where my heart is not pure or not wholly Yours? Where is Jesus not fully reigning in my life? Where I am experiencing losses, show me how to recover all and increase. Just like David did, I ask You, “Will I catch the enemy and recover what he has stolen from me and my family?” Tell me what to do and how to overcome. This is a perfect opportunity. Let’s show the unbelievers who you are. Let them see You through my life. Make my voice heard! Let me open my mouth and testify. Reveal those strategies to me during this Divine Pause that I will need to recover loss and enter into increase. With them, I will surely recover everything that was taken from me! Thank You, Jesus, my Provider. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God will show us how to harvest as we embrace His Divine Pause.

The Church Can Shift the Atmosphere – Part 4

“Every child of God should express praise. Human praise of a holy God is a major theme throughout God’s Word. Praise is expressing to God our appreciation and understanding of His worth. Praise says ‘thank you’ for each aspect of God’s nature. Praise expands our awareness of God’s character. ‘Praise’ comes from a Latin word meaning ‘value’ or ‘prize.’ When we praise God, we proclaim His merit or worth and His value to us here on earth. We find other words related to praise in the Bible, including ‘glory,’ ‘blessing,’ ‘thanksgiving’ and ‘hallelujah’. These should all be ways we express our love for God. 

“The order of the Lord’s Prayer in Luke 11:2 is important, ‘Father . . . hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come.’ First, Jesus praised God, and then He made His request. Praising God puts us in the right frame of mind to begin to declare our needs to a holy Father. With our hands outstretched, we can worship God in such a way that our daily provision can be released. Through worship, we can be assured that our supply will always come to us in a timely manner. Praise and thanksgiving are the opposite of worry. One of our greatest worries is over our needs being met. This is a time to be thankful for all that God is doing in our lives. Be like the one leper who went back and thanked Jesus for his healing. This thankfulness produced not just healing, but wholeness. Be whole!

“There is also a price to pay to enter into praise and worship. There is a cost to this process, and we are faced with a fundamental issue: Will we choose to just enjoy the efforts of others, or will we enter into the sacrifice of praise in a personal way? Furthermore, will we choose to offer this sacrifice in the good times as well as the trials?  We must be willing to embrace these costs to experience the real fruit of our praise.

“There is, perhaps, no stronger weapon of warfare than praise and worship to the Lord. Satan hates our worship to God for many reasons. For one, he is jealous of our worship. He longs to obtain it for himself through whatever means he can. For another, he knows that the weapon of worship is strong and effective.” (Chuck Pierce)

“Let the saints be joyful in glory; let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgment—this honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!” (Psalm 149:5-9; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read Joshua 5 & 6. Praise God! Ask the Lord for the strategy of worship that will dethrone what has seemed invincible and prevented you from moving forward in your promise.
  • Read Psalm 34. Praise God for the angels that are encamping around you.
  • Read Psalm 85. Praise God for restoring favor to your land.
  • Read Philippians 4. Thank God for establishing your mind on Him and making you think His thoughts. Realign your thoughts.  
  • Declare that you will capture each thought you have that is contrary to God’s judgment.
  • Read Acts 16:16-34. Praise God and watch your prison doors let go.  Watch salvation come to those around you who are imprisoned.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we praise You! We proclaim that You merit our highest and best praise and worship. Your worth and Your value to us here on earth is not measurable. Your love makes us express our love to You in return. You provide for us. You are our healer. You are our very best friend. You are our peace. You are our way maker. You are our protector. There is nothing we can ever need that You do not give us.

We will praise you in the good times and we will praise You in the challenging ones, such as we are living in now. You will not ever let the enemy triumph over us. He cannot have a drip of our worship. It only belongs to You. We will praise You and dethrone what has seemed invincible and prevented us from moving forward in our promise. We will praise You for angels that are encamping around us. You have posted them there. We will praise You for restoring favor to our land. We will thank You for establishing our minds on You and making us think Your thoughts. Your thoughts and Your ways are higher than ours. We will capture every thought! We will watch You open our prison doors, and we will live free! We will watch salvation come to those around us who are imprisoned, as well. We exalt You most High God! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Let the saints be joyful in glory! This honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!

The Church Can Shift the Atmosphere – Part 3

“All throughout God’s Word, we see that God is enthroned in praise. We glorify Him through our worship. That is why praise and worship are essential to experiencing God’s glory. Praise is that element of celebration that can transport us into the throne room of God. Once we are in the throne room at His feet, we need to worship and adore Him. As we worship Him in that intimate place, He begins to reveal His glory to us. God is looking for true worshipers who will worship ‘in spirit and truth’ (John 4:24). And as He finds those worshipers, they are able to experience the reality of heaven, which is God’s glory.

“Worship causes us to move thankfully with our body toward our creator. Praise (or yadah in Hebrew) is to worship God with extended hands. With hands lifted up, we declare the merit of God, and we thank Him for everything He has put in our hands. We find this concept first mentioned in the Bible when Leah conceived her fourth son and named him Judah, meaning praise. When Jacob acknowledged Judah, he extended his highest blessing upon him and declared that even his brothers would praise him. He also declared that Judah (praise) would triumph over all of his enemies with royal authority (the scepter) and legal authority (the lawgiver). The word ‘Judah’ also means to hold out your hand and throw or shoot a stone or an arrow at your enemy. Therefore, we find that praise will be a key weapon of the Spirit of God in our lives in days ahead.” (Chuck Pierce)

“I will praise you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.” (Psalm 9:1; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer (by, Chuck Pierce):

  • Read Psalm 130 and Rev. 2:10. Praise God for removing your past and extending abundant grace and forgiveness to you. Stand in His Presence and receive an outpouring of His grace.  
  • Let Hope arise in you, new and fresh. Let assurance of redemption rest upon you, and command all fear to leave you.
  • Read Psalms 131 – 134. 
  • Praise God and let perfect peace manifest in you. Stop striving and leaning on your own understanding concerning your circumstances and allow trust to arise. 
  • Embrace the faithful love of God. As a weaned child rests against his mother’s breast, declare that your soul is a weaned child within you. A weaned child has come to a new place of maturity. 
  • There is no peace until all our enemies are under our feet. Ascend above your enemies and reach the goal of the throne room. Sing, praise, and worship in the presence of the LORD.
  • Receive a new anointing, like the oil poured on Aaron’s head and flowing down the hem of his robe. 

A prayer you can pray:

God, I praise You for removing my past and extending abundant grace and forgiveness to me. I stand in Your Presence and receive an outpouring of Your grace. Let Hope arise in me, new and fresh. Let assurance of redemption rest upon me. I command all fear to leave my household. I praise You. Let perfect peace manifest in my life. I want to stop striving and leaning on my own understanding concerning my circumstances. Cause trust in Jesus to arise in me. I embrace Your faithful love. As a weaned child rests against his mother’s breast, I declare that my soul is a weaned child within me. You are causing me to come into a new place of maturity. I will not find peace until all my enemies are under my feet, so let me ascend above every one of my enemies. Let me come boldly to Your throneroom to find grace to help in this time of need. I will sing, praise, and worship in Your presence, Lord. I receive a new anointing as I stand in that holy place, like the oil poured on Aaron’s head and flowing down the hem of his robe. I will need that anointing to show the enemy who I belong to. Then, he must flee! All praise to You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Our highest praises to Jesus will cause us to triumph over all of our enemies!

The Church Can Shift the Atmosphere – Part 2

“Say to the Lord, ‘Open our eyes to Your Breath! Open our ears to Your sound!’ God is reminding us we have authority to operate from a heavenly realm. He has given us eyes to see into a heavenly realm. Throw your hands up. Say, ‘I no longer can be confined. The Word of God is without bounds. It will never be overcome.’ 

“We are entering a season where we will see many lights out. There will be power failure, after power failure, after power failure. But the Lord says, ‘I have a people that know how to create light. They will be like generators creating the light for many to follow. Get ready, because as the lights go out from city to city to city, My people will rise up and become the light.’ Like a prism reflects light, He is going to make His people His prism and you will reflect His light everywhere. 

“Feel the sound rising up within you. The Lord says, ‘I have a people that have been in discord, but I have a tuning fork. Watch me bring a harmony in this decade through My people so the world can hear the sound that I intend. Discord might think it’s sounding, but My people will find their voice of harmony this season.’”

“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Say to the Lord, “Open our eyes to Your Breath! Open our ears to Your sound!”
  • Declare that the Lion of Judah is about to roar through His Church.
  • Say, “The world will see Jesus in a Church that won’t be silenced!”
  • Don’t let past challenges and brokenness keep you silent now! Get ready to make Him known through your praise and worship.
  • Declare, “Jesus, You are the Light of the World. The world may lose its light for a season, but we’ll show the world the true Light.”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, open our eyes to Your Breath! Open our ears to Your sound! We hear the sound of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. You have prevailed! You have already won! Victory belongs to Jesus! You have put a fire within us. You do not want us to stay silent with this fire burning inside us. You want to let it move us. You want it to motivate us to tell others about You. We might have been broken in the last season, but behold, You make all things new. You heal us and move us out again. You move us to open up the atmosphere around us. Everywhere we go, we open up our mouths and speak Your words of hope. We sing Your songs of praise. We reflect Who You are. We show Who You are.

You are the Light of the World. The world may lose its light for a season, but we’ll show the world the real Light. We will light the darkness of hearts and minds. You are going to heal individuals and cities and this nation as we open our mouths in worship. You will  deliver and break open hard hearts as we pick up our instruments and fill the atmosphere with praise. Make us one in our worship of You, Jesus. Let the world see You as we praise You with one voice. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will worship and see the Glory of the Lord cover the nation as the waters cover the sea!

The Church Can Shift The Atmosphere – Part 1

We are living through an unprecedented time in the earth. As we moved into this new era of 5780, many prophetic voices were saying this. Some of the things the Lord was saying were that it would be an unusual time, and that we would see an unprecedented harvest of souls. I found myself wondering what was going to happen in this new era that would open people’s hearts to the Lord in such great measure. That’s an odd thing to think, but that’s what happens to me. Beside the ways the Lord was leading my messages and my intercession, people had sent me many dreams and visions about the Spring. One of them was the exact season we are in now—right as the cherry trees would be blossoming in Washington, D.C. Just to be clear, I did NOT see a pandemic, but I felt something was coming. We see in part and we understand in part.

Chuck Pierce saw a pestilence coming. On January 26th, he prophesied, “I saw a massive plague-like invasion would test us through Passover.” On February 28th, he prophesied, “I say to you that there are battles raging at the gate, but I say, ‘Let My sound arise and the battle at the gate will begin to turn.’ I say to nations and the remnant that’s in them, ‘I say, rise up and let My voice be heard. And, your nation will begin to shift.’ I say, ‘This is a time for shifting nations, shifting lands, shifting inheritances, and shifting people’s bloodlines.’ I say, ‘Rise up and the battle at the gate will shift!’”

So, here we are in the midst of something that is very threatening to a lot of people. Some are sick or are worried about sick loved ones. Some are concerned about themselves or family members becoming sick. Some are losing their jobs now, as government restrictions grow tighter, and public fear grows greater. Government officials and healthcare workers, restaurant workers, and airline baggage handlers have had positive test results. So, there is a lot of fear out there. The world needs hope. The world needs the anchor for their souls that only Jesus provides.

“Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.” (Psalm 91:9-11; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Bless your household, extended family and neighbors with life, health, and peace. It doesn’t matter if they know the Lord or not. We are to bless and curse not.
  • Intercede for the salvation of those in every home on your block. (We don’t know if they are or not saved. Best to pray that they know Him or come to know Him more in this crisis season.)
  • Ask the Lord to meet every need those around you have for provision and health.
  • Pray for the businesses in your community. Bless them and command a minimizing of loss. Remember that the business supports many individuals and families.
  • Pray against a small business owner’s fear of loss. Poor business decisions are made in times of desperation.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we want to lift up individuals and businesses in America today. We want to cover them in prayer and ask for a shortening of this pestilence that has come upon our nation. We desire to see it stopped in our neighborhoods, cities, and regions. We, therefore, make these faith-filled declarations of holy scripture over individual, families, and businesses:

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace (Numbers 6:24-26; ESV). May the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7; ESV). I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers (3 John 1:2; NKJV). Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6; ESV). And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12; ESV).  Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household (Acts 16:31; NIV).  Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that (you) may have life and have it abundantly (John 10:10; ESV).” He also said, “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” (Matthew 7:7-8; ESV). Jesus promised, “Do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they (Matthew 6:25-26; NASB)?” My God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19; ESV). 

Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established (Proverbs 16:3; ESV). Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God (Philippians 4:6; ESV). God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. Know Him! Trust Him! He is saying to you, “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation.  “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11; NLT).” “Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you (Jeremiah 29:12; NIV).” Do not rob or take advantage of anyone. Do not hold back the wages of someone you have hired, not even for one night (Leviticus 19:13: GNT). Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice.(Psalm 112:5; NIV).

Jesus, we know You hear us when we pray with clean hands and a pure heart, so we ask these things in Your Name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Word of the Lord declared over the nation will shift what needs shifted, bringing hope and salvation!

President Trump – Coronavirus Healthcare Updates

“Today, I want to share with you exciting progress that the FDA is making with the private sector as we slash red tape like nobody has ever done it before.  So we slashed red tape to develop vaccines and therapies as fast as it can possibly be done — long before anybody else was even thinking about doing this. And, as you know, earlier this week, we began the first clinical trial of a vaccine candidate for the virus, and that was launched in record time. As we race to develop a vaccine, we’re also pursuing antiviral therapies. The vaccine, by its nature, you have to have long tests because you have to make sure what goes into somebody’s body is not going to do destruction, do bad things.  So you need long tests. And they’re doing great with the vaccines, but it’s still a long process. But the therapies are something we can move on much faster, potentially, and the treatments that will be able to reduce the severity or duration of the symptoms — to make people better. Essentially, we’re looking at things to make people better or, at the very earliest stages, they wouldn’t even know they had it. And that’s where I believe it’s going to work even the best.

“The FDA Commissioner — Stephen Hahn — he’s fantastic.  And he has been working 24 hours a day. He’s worked like, probably as hard or harder than anybody in this — in the group, other than maybe Mike Pence or me.  And what the FDA is doing is incredible. I’ve directed the FDA to eliminate outdated rules and bureaucracy so this work can proceed rapidly, quickly, and, I mean, fast. We have to remove every barrier.  There are a lot of barriers that were unnecessary. Clinical trials are already underway for many new therapies and we’re working on scaling these to allow many more Americans to access different drugs that have shown really good promise.  We’ve had some show really good promise. We will do so in a way that lets us continue to collect good data, to know which medicines are safe and which medicines are working the best. We have a couple that we’re — we’re in really good shape on.  The FDA has also approved compassionate use for a significant number of patients. You know what that means. We’re also reviewing drugs that are approved abroad or drugs approved here for other uses.

“If treatments known to be safe in Europe, Japan, or other nations are effective against the virus, we’ll use that information to protect the health and safety of American people.  Nothing will stand in our way as we pursue any avenue to find what best works against this horrible virus. Now, a drug called chloroquine — and some people would add to it ‘hydroxy-.’  Hydroxychloroquine. So chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine. Now, this is a common malaria drug. It is also a drug used for strong arthritis. But it is known as a malaria drug, and it’s been around for a long time and it’s very powerful.  But the nice part is, it’s been around for a long time, so we know that if it — if things don’t go as planned, it’s not going to kill anybody. It’s shown very encouraging — very, very encouraging early results. And we’re going to be able to make that drug available almost immediately.  And that’s where the FDA has been so great. They’ve gone through the approval process; it’s been approved. And they did it — they took it down from many, many months to immediate. So we’re going to be able to make that drug available by prescription or states.”(President Donald J. Trump)

“He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.” (1 Peter 2:24; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray for those sick with the virus. Pray that there are a minimal number of fatalities.
  • Intercede for the medical community for grace and stamina. Pray over their emotions and pray they have a supernatural tolerance against COVID-19.
  • Say over your community, “COVID-19, you are not welcome here. The blood of Jesus is against you!”
  • Pray that the FDA and other medical sources find quick solutions to help those with COVID-19. Use the President’s report above to guide your intercession.
  • Take communion and remind yourself of the power of the blood of our Savior, Jesus.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I intercede for those sick with COVID-19. I pray You would heal them. This disease is insidious, because there is no way to know you have it for many days – even up to two weeks. You may ever know where you got it, so it’s hard for government health workers to know how to stop it. The medical community is on the front lines of the battle to bring healing and relief to those who are sick. Protect them, Lord. Grant them a special grace to be immune to this disease. We don’t want to lose those who have no choice but to be in the midst of it. Give them rest in the midst of the battle.

Stop the virus in its tracks! We say, “COVID-19, you are not welcome here. The blood of Jesus is against you!” Lord, help the government find quick, inexpensive solutions to treat this virus. Even then, we look to you, not to the government to be our Healer. This is one of the things You provided through Your death and resurrection, Jesus. Through Your blood we are made whole in every regard. By the stripes of Jesus, we are healed. We take communion and remind ourselves of that promise. We appropriate that victory to ourselves and our families in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Jesus dealt with sin, sickness, death on the cross. He is our Healer!

From the President – Praying for the Economy

“As you know, my administration is working every day to protect American people and the American economy from the virus. Wednesday, I signed into law a critical support for American workers, families, and small businesses. It was a big thing. We’re providing sick leave and family medical leave to those affected by the virus and more help is on the way as we speak.

“Our entire team, headed by Secretary Mnuchin, is on the Hill. We’re working with Democrats and Republicans and there’s a lot of goodwill going on. This was something that happened that just surprised the whole world. The whole world, almost, is inflicted with this horrible virus and it’s too bad. It’s too bad because we never had an economy as good as the economy we had just a few weeks ago. But we’ll be back and I actually think we’ll be back stronger than ever before because we learned a lot during this period of time.

“We’re working with Congress to provide major additional relief to the workers, small businesses, and the hardest-hit industries. We want to make sure that everybody is able to continue on so that when we recover, all of these companies and these great businesses — both very, very small and very, very large — are not going to be broken up and you’d have to put them back together. That would take a long time.

“When this is defeated — this hidden scourge is defeated — I think we’re going to go up very rapidly — our economy — and get back to where it was and beyond.”

“Now He has promised, saying, ‘Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.’ Now this, ‘Yet once more,’ indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.” (Hebrews 12:26b-29; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Place your eyes firmly on Christ and do not look at the shaking. He is in control!
  • Thank the Lord for a President and governing leaders who understand economic principles and can navigate the shaking economy.
  • Ask God to give our leaders wisdom mixed with compassion for those who are losing jobs and other resources as a result of this global emergency.
  • Intercede for continued legislation to help Americans weather this storm.
  • Call for a quick turnaround and a V-shaped recovery—that the economy will rebound and head back up when this is over, as fast as it headed down.
  • Pray for quick relief for the suffering.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, You are in control, even though it looks like things are shaking so hard that not much will be left. You are taking care of us. You are the one who owns the cattle on a thousand hills. You take care of the birds of the air and the You clothe the flowers of the field. We must just look around us. Increase our faith. We thank You for a President and governing leaders who understand economic principles and can navigate the shaking economy. Shake what needs to shake out. Shake out everything that is corrupt and unnecessary. Clean things up and reset them Your way. Have mercy on the people, Lord. Grant mercy and grace to those who have lost jobs and income. Get us through this quickly. We pray now that the economy will rebound as quickly as it is falling. We trust You for Your intervention in this matter and thank you for Your love and care for us in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We are receiving a Kingdom that cannot be shaken!
