The Fear of the Lord and the Coronavirus

“As I prepared to participate in the Global Day of Prayer called by Cindy Jacobs and many other respected leaders, I heard the Lord say that the tactic of the enemy against the global church right now is to knock the wind out of it via the spirit of fear. He is trying to spread a pandemic of fear in the church of Jesus Christ. He knows that if he can blindside us with demonic fear, the fear of the Lord will be overtaken and the doorway to wisdom on how to pray and decree against this thing will be closed. Understanding will be lost and confusion will come.

“The Lord then said that what the enemy is trying to do is grip the church with Nosophobia. 

“What is Nosophobia?

“Nosophobia is defined as ‘the irrational fear of contracting a disease.’ ‘Nosos’ is the greek word for disease. 

“To the believer in the fullness of Christ, fear should be irrational, because God has not given us a spirit of fear (1 Timothy 1:7). We are to push back against the demonic spirit of fear and stand in the fear of the Lord. Wisdom on how to pray and decree will only come when we are grounded in the fear of the Lord. The fear of the Lord will set you free and keep you free from the snare of death that is this irrational demonic fear.

“The Lord then showed me this word ‘Nosos’ in scripture. He pointed me to Luke 9:1 – And He called the twelve together, and gave them power and authority over all the demons and to heal diseases. The word ‘diseases’ in the text is the word nosos. God has given his sons and daughters, those who stand in the fear of the Lord, legal right to overturn disease and cast out fear. You see Jesus and his disciples dealing with nosos (disease) over and over in scripture, so He has set a ‘not on my watch’ biblical precedent that fear and this disease has to bow before the King of kings.” (Anthony Medina

“Where can wisdom be found? It is born in the fear of God. Everyone who follows his ways will never lack his living-understanding.” (Psalms 111:10; TPT)

“The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, that one may turn away from the snares of death.” (Proverbs 14:27; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer (by, Anthony Medina):

  • Cast off the restraint of fear!
  • Bow before God Almighty in reverential and holy fear.
  • Receive Divine wisdom and strategy.
  • Overturn this demon of disease.

A prayer you can pray:

God, I come to You reminding myself of Who You are. You are God Almighty, You made the heavens and the earth and all that is in it. You are worthy of my worship! You are worthy of my whole-hearted commitment. I choose to fear You, Lord, and to ask for a grace to fear nothing and none other than You. Your perfect love casts out my fear. I need a revelation of the depth of Your love! The Church needs a revelation of how deeply we are loved by You. Knowing that causes us to bow deeply before Your wonderful throne of grace, to find grace to help in time of need. Lord, You are worthy of my worship.

I will not fear the coronavirus, if I am walking in a holy, reverential fear of You! I will seek You for Divine strategy for how to pray and how to act. I want to be an example of the Believers in this international trial. Show me what scriptures to use as a sword of the Lord. Show me what to decree. I declare that this demonic plague will be stopped. Like Aaron, I will run to intercede between this unseen viral foe and the people, whom You deeply love. Save them, Jesus. Give them an opportunity to come to know You as their loving Savior, amen.

Today’s decree:

We choose the fear of the Lord, our Fountain of Life, and turn away from the snares of death!

Dealing With Epidemic Fear 

“God has spoken very clearly about the epidemic of fear that is trying to get a foothold in people as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak. The Lord rebuked me two weeks ago about not calling the Body of Christ to prayer regarding the epidemic. So, I got input from prophets and intercessors from around the world. Also, I remembered when the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders met last Fall, there was a warning of viruses coming that had no cure. But God! Sharon Stone Black, a prophet from England, said this was a two-pronged attack of fear. She said, ‘There are two aspects of fear that need to be identified—fear of contagious disease itself and fear of lack.’ Some of that fear is for our businesses, the stock market and retirement accounts, the stability of our jobs, and just taking care of the needs of our families. Hoarding is already happening and may get worse, and that can hurt people who don’t hoard. We need to intercede into the fear.

“So, as I pondered all this, the Lord said to me, ‘If you will take away the pointing of the finger…’ What does this mean? It means that people think that somebody needs to take the blame. The Lord showed me there was latent racism against Asian people. So, if you are an Asian, I want you to know that we are very, very sorry for pointing our finger at you. Racism is wrong against any people group. We need to make sure we do not play this blame game, so there is nothing in the way of God releasing healing to our nation.”

“If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday… Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.” (Isaiah 58:9b-10 and 12; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Bring your own fear of the Coronavirus to the throne of grace.
  • Tell the Lord about any fear you have of Him not caring for your family through this outbreak.
  • Present any fear of financial loss to the Lord.
  • Maybe you are even afraid you will lose your life, especially if you lay hands on the sick. Let Him comfort you in that. You don’t have to lay hands on anyone unless He directs you to or you have the faith for it.
  • If you have had any thoughts to lay blame for this epidemic on Asians or any other racial group, repent and ask the Lord to show you how to intercede for them, instead. 

A prayer you can pray:

“So we say we do not have a fear of lack on us. God, You have promised us abundance. The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, but You promised us abundant life. We believe for blessing. We say economies are secure. We know that Satan wants to disrupt people’s lives. He even wants to affect our elections through this. He has done it before and he is trying again. If the markets go down, the elections shake. Even greater than a fear of financial loss is the fear of the loss of our own mortality. The enemy is trying to move us out of the fear of the Lord and into fear for our lives, but we are to be those that do not fear our lives even unto death. We need to overcome that fear of death and start looking at how to share our faith in Jesus Christ with those who are fearful and do not know Jesus. Satan wants to disrupt the Great Awakening, but we say, “It’s going to backfire on him!” You will turn this crisis into our opportunity. It is irrational for the Church to fear sickness and disease, if Jesus healed all who were sick. Jesus, You tell us to go and heal the sick, also. What are we doing allowing fear in our lives? We should be running to where the sick are in order to get our hands on them. 

And, Lord, forgive us the pointing of the finger at any people group, especially Asians. It is not their fault that this disease is among us. They are victims also. We must have compassion for everyone afflicted by evil one. Forgive us and heal us all in the Name of the One who makes us whole—Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will not be afraid, but will lovingly lay hands on anyone sick in the Name of Jesus, and they will recove

Dealing With the Coronavirus

“I had a dream the other night. In this dream, John G. Lake appeared to me. John G. Lake was a healing revivialist in the early 20th century who went right into the face of the Black Plague. Yet, he was not injured by it. He had doctors put the Black Plague virus on his skin and they watched the plague die. See, there’s an overshadowing grace of God’s goodness that wants to come upon His people right now. There’s an overshadowing. Peter’s shadow healed because there was an overshadowing Presence of Almighty God. So, back to the dream. In the dream, John G. Lake placed gold bars in my hand. This was not for me, but for the Body of Christ in this hour. He is placing a new anointing in our hands. He said, ‘The anointing that’s coming will break the yoke.’ Suddenly, I saw that Jesus was behind him, and He said, ‘Breathe in Me and exhale the Kingdom.’ He did that. He breathed in and blew out. Then, He said it again, ‘Breathe in Me and exhale the Kingdom.’ Then He said these simple words, ‘Now, go in faith and release My Kingdom. There is only faith where My perfect love is. Go and release My Kingdom for love brings power.’

“I woke up with this revelation, ‘This outbreak will be an opportunity for outpouring.’ Who wants the outpouring?! God is looking for a hungry people who are a desperate people.” (Stephen Springer)

“Then he went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every illness among the people.” (Matthew 4:23; ISV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare, “God, You are sending an outpouring in the midst of the Coronavirus outbreak!”
  • Make declarations about the healing power of Jesus Christ. Look up and declare every scripture you can find on this. Start with Matthew 4:23.
  • Pray until you have stirred up your faith and believe!
  • Boldly ask the Lord to give you an anointing like He gave John G. Lake to heal the sick and introduce them to Jesus, the Healer. 
  • Say, “Harvest time is now!”

A prayer you can pray (By Stephen Springer):

God, You are sending an outpouring in the midst of the Coronavirus outbreak! I declare that revival is at hand. I say that we shall go into the face of this disease and it shall bow its knee. I decree and declare, “Jesus, even as You destroyed iniquity, You destroyed all diseases through Your shed blood on the cross.” I invoke Your Name, the Name that is above all names; the Name of Jesus. We invoke the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. You came in the flesh and destroyed sickness and disease. I ask, God, that You pour out Your blessings. I say, “Harvest time is now!” I declare now Your Word that says, “In the last days, I will pour out My Spirit on Your sons and daughters.” I believe Your Word. You ask that the Church believes in You, and believes with You. You say, “Watch what you can do as the overshadowing grace of My Kingdom comes.” I receive this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Coronavirus outbreak will become an outpouring of Christ’s Kingdom!

The Horrifying Stories behind Louisiana’s Clinic Law – Part 3

“When the U.S. Supreme Court (convened) Wednesday morning, let’s hope they see these real victims of a ruthless, money-hungry abortion industry. The liberal media will scream that the Louisiana law before these nine justices is about shutting down clinics. It’s not. It’s about forcing an industry that claims to put women first to prove it. If businesses like Delta Women’s Health want to stay open, it’s up to them. They can abide by Act 620 that requires them to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital (which, based on these accounts, they need), or they can refuse to make the changes that protect mothers and close their doors.

“The Left will argue that this is about abortion access. But who wants access to an unsafe abortion? We don’t care if it’s ‘inconvenient’ for these businesses to file the paperwork for admitting privileges. We care that women don’t get hurt more. And everyone in this country — liberal or conservative — should too. There’s one casualty from every abortion already. There shouldn’t be two. ‘Look, I’d love it if the Supreme Court would overturn Roe v. Wade,’ Rep. Johnson said all those years ago. ‘That would be the greatest day of my life. But until we can do that, I accept the fact that they can perform abortions legally, and I just want them to do it under the same health and safety standards that any other medical professional has to adhere to.’ That’s what we said in 1999, when Mike (Johnson) and I fought for Louisiana first abortion clinic regulation law — and it’s what every justice should say now.

“To check out the amicus brief that FRC filed in the case, click here. Also, don’t miss my brand new Washington Times op-ed with that young attorney-turned-congressman, Mike Johnson, ‘Supreme Court should put a stop to the abortion industry getting a free pass.’” (Tony Perkins)1

“The exercise of justice is joy for the righteous, but is terror to the workers of iniquity.” (Proverbs 21:15; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Mike Johnson is an attorney, but he is also a Congressman representing Louisiana. Watch his comments on the SCOTUS case here and intercede for his good work for those he represents.
  • Intercede for Tony Perkins, the President of Family Research Council. Bless him for his work to fight for the family, and every matter concerning that institution as God sees it. 
  • Pray for Delta Women’s Health. They can abide by Act 620 that requires them to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital (which, based on the accounts we showed you over the last few days, they need), or they can refuse to make the changes that protect mothers and close their doors.
  • Intercede for those in the media who slant news to support abortion and make women think everything is okay for them to have abortions. It is not a safe procedure. Their baby is not “fetal tissue”. They will not be emotionally okay for a long time, if ever. 
  • Proclaim, “Let stories of truth regarding abortion be told!”
  • Never stop believing and decreeing that there will be an ending of aboriton in America!

A prayer you can pray:

God, we cry out against the practice of abortion in America! We declare that it is never okay to kill a baby in the womb. Stories like the ones above show the heart of some of these abortionists. They are making money and do not care about the women. You care about the lives of every baby in the womb, but You also care about every mother. Reading these stories of how women are being treated in abortion clinics is frightening. No one should be treated like that, especially a woman in such a vulnerable position. We ask You to close those clinics where women are taken advantage of. And, we ask You again, Lord, to hear our cry, forgive our sin, and end abortion in America! 

As we ready ourselves for that hopeful day when abortion will not stain our land, we ask for solutions. The Church needs to get ready. We need centers to counsel women, provide for them, and provide for the children. We need adoption agencies raised up, as well as couples and families willing to adopt these little lives. We say, “Every child will be a welcome child! God will provide a family for them!” We need changed hearts, changed laws, and changed culture. Thank You, Jesus, for making this dream a reality. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Justice over the abortion issue will bring joy for the righteous, and will undo all the plans of those working to maintain it.

The Horrifying Stories behind Louisiana’s Clinic Law – Part 2

“Louisiana’s (Mike) Brinkley, it turns out, was quite a fan of Kermit Gosnell. He even hired the abortion monster to work for him in Delaware (before Gosnell went to prison for killing patients and snipping the spinal cords of perfectly healthy newborns). And the similarities didn’t end there. Brinkley ran his ‘clinic’ in Baton Rouge just like Gosnell’s house of horrors. Allyson Tunnard was just 19 when she worked there — and saw things that will scar her for life. She remembers holding down patients who were yelling in pain during late-term procedures, watching how rough and abusive the doctors were, and the day she wasn’t allowed to call 911 when a woman started gushing blood because the abortionist had carelessly sliced through her uterus. ‘She passed several blot clots as large as my head… but [Dr.] Whitmore refused to let anyone call [an ambulance] because he was afraid the media would find out.’ Later, her charts said there had been no complications.

“These are the stories that sealed the deal for Louisiana. Mike and I joined forces. In the state legislature, I showed an undercover video of the atrocities taking place behind clinic doors — the stomach-churning, third-world conditions — which, as even the liberal media points out, silenced all the critics. But now, 20 years later, much more needs to be done. Abortion businesses, Delta worker Lisa Teegarden warned, ‘are much more concerned with making money than with providing safe health care.’ And so they’ve found a way around the regulations — putting women’s lives on the line with shoddy care.

“Just last March, a young mom — barely 15 weeks pregnant — went into the same Delta Women’s Clinic and had her abortion botched so badly that she had to have a complete hysterectomy, sterilizing her for life. Turns out, when she started bleeding profusely, the nurse went to give her emergency saline — only to find that the crash cart didn’t have any! To her horror, the other medicine she needed to save her life was expired.” (Tony Perkins)1

“For My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from My face, neither is their iniquity concealed from My eyes.” (Jeremiah 16:17; AMP)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Abortion is a horrific and nightmarish procedure. Cry out against the killing of our nation’s unborn.
  • Abortion clinics are often a “house of horrors”. Read the stories above and find a place of deep compassion for the patients, even as you feel a deep anger toward those that exploit them for money. Cry out for the closing of these clinics.
  • Cry out for the ending of abortion in America!
  • Intercede for the healing of the bodies and minds of those women that have had abortions.
  • Declare, “Every child will be a welcome child! God will provide a family for them!”
  • Intercede for the solutions to the horror of abortion: laws, changes of heart, adoptions, community support structures, couples and families prepared to receive children that would otherwise be lost to abortion.

A prayer you can pray:

God, we cry out against the practice of abortion in America! We declare that it is never okay to kill a baby in the womb. Stories like the ones above show the heart of some of these abortionists. They are making money and do not care about the women. You care about the lives of every baby in the womb, but You also care about every mother. Reading these stories of how women are being treated in abortion clinics is frightening. No one should be treated like that, especially a woman in such a vulnerable position. We ask You to close those clinics where women are taken advantage of. And, we ask You again, Lord, to hear our cry, forgive our sin, and end abortion in America!

We say, “Every child will be a welcomed child! God will provide a family for them!” We need changed hearts, changed laws, and changed culture. Thank You, Jesus, for making this dream a reality. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The lives of both children and women will be saved with the ending of abortion in America!

The Horrifying Stories behind Louisiana’s Clinic Law – Part 1

“Markethia Clark will never forget that day. Looking across the table at a young lawyer named Mike Johnson, she shudders. ‘It was unusually bad,’ she told him. Denise had been the last patient of the night, so everyone was tired and anxious to go home. Markethia wasn’t in the surgery room when the screaming started. Looking at her coworkers in horror, they froze. ‘We were all alarmed,’ she said, ‘because screaming out loud like that is unusual.’ The abortion, they knew, had gone terribly wrong. But calling an ambulance, the doctor barked, was out of the question.

“Denise survived because her mom rushed her to the hospital. About three months later, when lawyers and state officials started sniffing around the case, the doctor, Leroy Brinkley, ordered his staff to ‘fabricate some records to make it look like everything was done properly.’ ‘We made [them] up,’ Markethia admitted. It was the last she or anyone else knew of the case. But it wasn’t the end of the nightmares.

“When the inspectors came, Sandra Price said, ‘We stalled them’ while other employees ‘quietly gathered together the unsterilized hoses and re-packaged cannulas (labeled “For One Use Only”) and hid them… The only things they looked at were what we voluntarily showed them.’ Like a lot of abortion centers, Delta Women’s Health was filthy. The equipment was so disgustingly dirty, Markethia testified, that the ‘dilators had dried crusted blood down in the crevices of the numbers engraved on the side… The surgical tools were so rusted that if you rubbed your hand down it, it would leave a rusty, orange streak on your palm. Those were the same tools used on Denise and all the other girls at the clinic.’ There was ‘dried up blood on the floor, in the old recliners in the recovery room, and rust on the insides of the surgical trays,’ she shakes her head.” (Tony Perkins)1

“He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, But he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion.” (Proverbs 28:13; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Wednesday, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) heard oral arguments on the Louisiana Unsafe Abortion Protection Act being contested by abortion providers in the state. Intercede for a righteous decision by the Justices as they now consider their opinions.
  • Click here to see snippets of the discussion of the justices with the plaintiff and defendant. Intercede for each of the nine justices as you read about their interaction with the attorneys presenting their cases. 
  • Until abortion is reversed in America, pray for an increase of just laws protecting women going to abortion clinics from harm. 
  • Ask the Lord to open the eyes of abortion providers and those that work for them. Many workers have left in the last few years, as they have realized what the circumstances of the abortion industry truly are. 
  • Ask the Lord to set up Divine appointments for abortion doctors and employees to come to know Jesus.
  • Declare, “He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, But he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, on Wednesday a key case in the battle for Life was heard at the U.S. Supreme Court. In Russo v. June Medical Services LLC, the state of Louisiana is trying to uphold their law requiring physcians who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. Situations like Markethia Clark’s are behind this law. We desire that abortion is eradicated from this nation, but in the meantime, we do not want to see doctors treat women seeking abortions with such disregard! Dirty clinics, filthy instruments, and sloppy procedures are killing women, or leaving them permanently maimed. Some have fought for their lives, yet the clinic staffs have covered over their sinful ways, caring for themselves instead of the women they serve. This needs to stop! We declare Your own Word, “He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, But he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion!” Set up Divine appointments. Convict the doctors and workers of sin. Let them be saved and find compassion in place of eternal judgement. 

Lord, the SCOTUS justices have heard the arguments and now they are deliberating. Let them look carefully at all the facts of this case and do the right thing for the women and for the State of Louisiana’s citizens. Let them uphold the law that requires admitting privileges with a local hospital. We intercede for each one of them, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Lord will forgive, save, and heal, all who renounce abortion and turn to Him with a repentant heart.

Believing God Against Impossible Odds

I have been overwhelmed for a while now about the number of dreams people are sending me having to do with this nation. They are all good. They don’t all imply “easy”. None of them imply “the work is done”. They all indicate that we are moving into what we have been crying out for. We just have to finish well. I will share some of those dreams in the coming days. Today, I want to talk about when they started coming in.

In 2017, the Lord instructed me to carry a mantle of prayer for the nation under the banner of the Appeal to Heaven flag. That flag was commissioned by General George Washington during the Revolutionary War. He flew it over the battlefields, the ships, and the camps. All of those involved in the war knew that if God didn’t come through, it was laughable for us to even think we could win a war against the greatest empire on the earth at that time. 

I have been reading and studying about that war since that time. I have been struck with how impossible it was for that fledgling group of colonists to win a war like that. There were hundreds of opportunities for it to fall apart. Yet, God kept supernaturally helping them. This was because of their appeal to heaven. Under the flag that he commissioned, General Washington interceded for his troops. He led them in prayer before every battle. That flag was a reminder for them to appeal to the Lord for success, because they knew they couldn’t win that war any other way. If God was not fighting for them, it was not possible.

“You must not fear them, for the Lord your God Himself fights for you.” (Deuteronomy 3:22; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • We can fear the harshness of the enemy or remember and trust in the faithfulness of God. Make a choice.
  • If your battle feels like  more than you can handle, passionately, purposefully and consistently appeal to heaven for breakthrough.
  • If the battle for America feels impossible, remember Israel’s great battles to obtain their promises. 
  • Declare, “Therefore, we will not fear, but we will trust in the Name of the Lord our God. He made the heavens and the earth and He is able to deliver us out of the hand of the evil one!”
  • Say, “With God, all things are possible!” Name the victories you are expecting.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, today we make a choice to believe You instead of fearing what the enemy can do to us. The odds are not in our favor. Examples from history show that this is common in spiritual battles. From stories in the Bible, such as the battles Joshua and Gideon led, to America’s Revolutionary War, we see these overwhelming odds against Your people. Yet, You came through when You were sought for the victory! George Washington knew that unless there was a persistent appeal to heaven, the war was lost before it began. He had a flag designed to remind his troops to pray for You were involved in the battle. Joshua kept reminding his people to put aside fear, seek You, and do whatever You told them to do, because You were directing the battle. You are all about fulfilling Your promises. We must only keep You in our sights. We must watch and listen carefully for You and Your instructions. If we do that, we will not fear, but we will trust in Your wonderful Name. You made the heavens and the earth and You are able to deliver us out of the hand of the evil one! With You all things are possible! We look for You for breakthrough in our personal situations, as well as to fulfill the promises given for our nation. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.

Today’s decree:

We will win the war we are in because God is fighting for us!

God’s Choice to Turn a Nation (Louisiana Abortion Case at the SCOTUS TODAY!)

I have often encouraged believers to judge what God is doing in America—not by what they see or hear naturally—but by the spirit. Elijah “saw” and “heard” drought-breaking rain (the sign of God’s favor returning to Israel) before there was even a cloud in the sky (see 1 Kings 18:41). Likewise, in today’s America, the moral depravity and staggering departure from God and our Christian roots can easily mask what He is doing.

However, a huge sign was given to us three years ago when God began using one of the most unlikely men in America to trumpet a political message: “drain the swamp” and “make America great again.” I would have chosen an individual with a great moral record, sound theology, a worshipping heart and true humility. God chose Donald J. Trump. And it has been oh-so-refreshing to watch him buck the system and expose the evil agendas of Washington DC. The far left (as does the kingdom of darkness) hates him.

Why was Trump’s election so angering to the left? Through government, media, education and entertainment, there has been a successful, full-on 60-70 year effort to reshape America, turning us from our Christian roots and our God-given destiny, which is to be the leading voice of the gospel and liberty around the world. (This, probably unbeknownst to POTUS, is our nation’s true greatness.) Trump’s win interrupted and is even reversing this antichrist momentum. His federal judges and Supreme Court appointments alone (with more coming) have been an immeasurable setback to the left. Democratic Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, stated recently: “We can withstand one term, but the destruction he would do to the courts in our country [if he is given 4 more years] …he must be defeated!” She and her far left allies were nearly rabid with anger and hatred at the State of the Union address. They know their agenda is being thwarted.

God’s divine reversal isn’t finished, however. The exposing of evil will continue, as will the turnaround. This year, 2020, is the hinge year. If we persist, the door into America’s great revival and resurrection will swing open fully this year. And we will.

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Are you able to see past natural national circumstances and into what God is doing?
  • Write down at least one thing you know God is doing in America, even if the media, left-leaning politicians, and others are trying to ignore, cover over, or discredit it.
  • Louisiana’s abortion case will be heard at the Supreme Court TODAY. Intercede for the turning around of abortion. Let the nation choose LIFE!
  • Consider some things that President Trump has done that have surprised you, such as returning prayer to schools, enacting protections for the unborn, ensuring the protection of religious freedoms, filling the courts with conservative judges, and acknowledging Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. 
  • Have you heard news of national revivals? They are happening! 
  • Keep praying for God to arise and all of His enemies to be scattered!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, let Your Church not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So often, we get really tired and stop right when You are about to move! It is the same in a natural birth. The mama wants to see that baby, but she gets so tired in the transition period, that she wants to stop. Her doctor, midwife, and husband must often whole-heartedly encourage her to press in and keep going, because the baby is almost there! Let the intercessors be as midwives right now. The enemy’s attacks are growing stronger, which means we are almost there! You have been moving, You are moving! We are about to see the things we have contended for becoming reality. Laws are changing. People are moving out and moving into place. Culture is slowly changing. We cannot grow weary now! 

Louisiana’s case is at the Supreme Court today. It is a case that could be the beginning of the end of aboriton in America. We must pray today and throughout the next couple of weeks, while the justices make their decision. President Trump has positioned constitutional justices on the Court and we pray they can find the reason to support Louisiana and their Unsafe Abortion Protections Act. There are so many things this President has done to support Life. Thank You for giving this man to our nation, even though he is an unusual choice. You knew what was in him. You knew what the nation needed. 

Lord, move now to give us more than a governmentally-changed culture. Give us a spiritually changed one. Give us the harvest we long for—a harvest of souls! That and that alone can secure a nation that honors You and holds onto the cultural changes for our children and grandchildren. We ask this in Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

The Ekklesia will pray and the exposing of evil will continue, as will the turnaround!

DEAR FRIENDS,

We, along with other global leaders, are calling for a national day of prayer to end the Coronavirus. After seeking wisdom and prophetic counsel from prophets across the nation and world, we believe strongly that since this is a worldwide issue, it’s going to take the whole church to cry out together for the mercy and healing power of God to contain it. 

The renowned passage 2 Chronicle 7:14 promises us that if God’s people pray, seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways, then He will heal our lands. Throughout the history of the United States, presidents have sought to align the nation with this sacred promise. During the Civil War in the United States, President Abraham Lincoln wrote, “Let us then rest humbly in the hope authorized by the Divine teachings, that the united cry of the Nation will be heard on high, and answered with blessings…” Though circumstances are different, the promise remains the same for each nation enduring the coronavirus. God will hear our united cry! He will heal our land. The tide will turn!

In light of this understanding, we are asking for mobilization on a global scale this Tuesday, March 3, for a day of fasting and prayer for our respective nations, in order to stop the spread of the virus and heal the people affected by it. Our global conference call begins at 11:00 A.M. US Eastern Time. Our Global Prayer Live Broadcast begins at 7:14 P.M. U.S. Central Time. 

What have the prophets said that we should do in this time of prayer? 

1. Pray Psalm 91 over your families and nations.

“When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High, our secret hiding place, we will always be shielded from harm. HOW THEN COULD EVIL PREVAIL AGAINST US OR DISEASE INFECT US?” (Passion Translation, Ps. 91:9-10)

2. The prophets are concerned that fear is spreading in epidemic proportions in our nations. Therefore, during this prayer time, we want to both pray against fear and remind ourselves that God has not given us a spirit of fear. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Tim. 1:7).

3. Because fear can cause us to also make reactionary or unwise decisions, we pray for wisdom for our leaders to contain the spread of the virus while protecting their people effectively. We pray also for the crisis response teams and emergency responders in each nation to be protected and be effective. 

Two aspects of fear were identified—the fear of the contagious disease itself and the fear of lack. The fear of lack can cause economies to collapse and people to move into individual survivalism. Pray that the Lord will give individuals wisdom from Heaven during this season rather than becoming reactionary in self-protection. 

For this reason we feel this is a wake-up call that we are a global church, and that the challenges affecting other nations truly affect us all. Pray for the nations as we pray for our own!

If you have been complacent about praying for other nations suffering from this virus, we encourage a time of reflection and repentance. 

4. Across the world people are being faced with the greatest fear known to mankind—the prospect of our own mortality. Pray for courage for believers to share Jesus effectively through this time of crisis.

5. Many prophetic voices across the world have been prophesying the coming of the next great awakening, and that it will happen on a worldwide scale. Forces of evil would like to use this to either delay or disrupt the coming awakenings and revivals. Intercede that this will not happen, but rather escalate the moves of God worldwide. God wants this season to turn into a catalyst of revival instead of contagion.

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10 NKJV).

6. Make a decree that the coronavirus will cease worldwide, and that God will heal all who are currently affected by it. 

7. Re-consecrate yourselves, your families, and your nation to God through the taking of communion. Remember the miracle of Passover. Plead and apply the blood of the Lamb on the doorposts of your spheres.

“My cherished friends, keep on running far away from idolatry. I know I am writing to thoughtful people, so carefully consider what I say. For when we pray for the blessing of the communion cup, isn’t this our co-participation with the blood of Jesus? And the bread that we distribute, isn’t this the bread of our co-participation with the body of Christ? FOR ALTHOUGH WE’RE MANY, WE BECOME ONE LOAF OF BREAD AND ONE BODY AS WE FEAST TOGETHER ON ONE LOAF” (1 Corinthians 10:14-17 TPT).

Franklin Graham Says, “Register to Vote”

Tomorrow is the official primary election date in a number of states. You can check for your state here. The problem is that many Christians do not vote, and to be able to vote, you have to be registered! So, you may have missed out this time, but get registered before the General Election Day November 3, 2020! As to what’s at stake this year, read this excerpt from an article by Michael W. Chapman below.

“Expressing shock and disappointment that some presidential contenders, such as socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT), support abortion on demand, no restrictions, and Marxist ideas such as nationalization of industry and Cuban-style health care, Rev. Franklin Graham urged Christians ‘to pray for our nation’ and the ‘upcoming elections.’  He added that Americans need to register to vote, ‘otherwise we will lose our country.’

“In a Feb. 12 post on Facebook, the evangelical leader said, ‘The Democratic Party has changed so much that it’s hard to believe. Just a few days ago Bernie Sanders declared that “being pro-choice is an absolutely essential part of being a Democrat.” That’s shocking and disturbing.’

“’He also vowed, “I will never nominate any person to the Supreme Court or the federal courts in general who is not 100% pro Roe v. Wade,”’ said Graham, son of the late Pastor Billy Graham. 

“’He went further to write, “We have got to codify Roe v. Wade into law and significantly expand funding for Planned Parenthood,”’ noted Graham. Where is the voice of those in the Democratic Party who disagree? Where’s the outcry against this and the acceptance of socialism?’

“’This is an example of why it is so important for people of faith to research who you vote for in every election and understand where they stand on issues that are important to you,’ said Rev. Graham. ‘I urge Christians to pray for our nation, our leaders, and the upcoming elections, from local to national.’

“‘Make sure that you are registered to vote, otherwise we will lose our country,’ said Graham.” (Courtesy of CNSNews.com)

“If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • If you forgot or neglected to register to vote and cannot vote in your state’s primaries, many of which are tomorrow, repent and determine that you will before the General Elections, November 3rd.
  • Look here for state and national candidates and issues that could affect you and your family.
  • Also, use iVoterGuide.com to find and educate yourself on your political representation, as well as to pray for them. 
  • Begin to intercede now for the General Elections. This is such an important decision. We will be literally choosing life or death for the nation.
  • Declare, “As for me and my house, we choose LIFE for the United States of America!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, it appears that this year’s national elections are going to determine the course of our nation for quite a while. It’s both good and bad that those running for office are extremely divided on some critical issues. We desire You to heal our divided nation, and it is making it easier to see how to vote. We can’t vote anymore by political party affiliation. We need to get past what party our parents and grandparents chose. They’re not the same now. We also can’t look at the flawed humans running to represent the parties. We really have to look at the candidates’ ideologies and the party platforms. Only then can we see if any choice is one You could approve for America. 

We need to heed Rev. Franklin Graham’s warning, “to pray for our nation” and the “upcoming elections.”  He added that Americans need to register to vote, “otherwise we will lose our country.” This is no threat based in fear. This is a real threat based on real candidates’ statements. We need to learn about each one running for office and what they are espousing. We need to vote for LIFE, first and foremost. We need to choose those who most stand for principles God teaches us in His Word, such as what a man and a woman are, what a marriage is, what freedom to choose really looks like, what personal ownership and beneficial economies look like, whether countries should have boundaries and clear borders, and so many other things. We cannot decide these things by what sounds good or what we decide as a group is a good thing. May that never be! We will determine in our hearts, “If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” In the Name and to the honor of Jesus, amen.

Today’s decree:

The Church will register to vote, we will vote,  and we will choose the Lord for our nation!
