A Message to the Praying Church – Part 1

I have often encouraged believers to judge what God is doing in America, not by what they see or hear naturally, but by discerning spiritually. 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, to the undiscerning, what He is doing. Be assured, however, America’s turnaround is in full swing!

A huge and surprising sign was given to us three years ago when God began using one of the most unlikely men in America to trumpet two political messages: “Drain the Swamp” and “Make America Great Again.” I would have chosen an individual with a great moral background, sound theology, a worshipping heart, and deep 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, D.C. The far left, the deep state, and yes, the kingdom of darkness all hate him.

Why was Trump’s election so angering to them? There has been a satanically-inspired and successful effort for 60-70 years—through government, media, education and entertainment—to reshape America, turning us from our Christian roots and God-given destiny. Yahweh’s purpose for America is to be the leading voice of the gospel around the world. (This, probably unbeknownst to POTUS, is America’s true greatness, not our wealth.) Trump’s win interrupted satan’s momentum and is now reversing this demonic reshaping; his policies will continue to do so. POTUS’ Federal Judges and Supreme Court appointments alone (with more coming), have been an immeasurable setback to the left’s agenda. Democrat Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, recently said of Trump: “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 2020 State of the Union address; and their farcical impeachment trial was pathetic enough to be laughable. They know their agenda is being thwarted and they are furious.

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. The door into America’s great revival and resurrection will swing fully open this year—if we, the praying Church, persist. 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 seeing and hearing with spiritual discernment what the Lord is doing in this land?
  • Intercede for the spiritually lost. Many are feeling “lost” right now. They don’t know where to go or what to do and they are fearful.
  • Call for the full exposing of evil in high places in government, media, education, and entertainment. Crises can lay bare motives, thoughts, and intents of the heart.
  • Intercede for President Trump, his Cabinet members, and the Coronavirus Task Force as they continue to develop the right strategy for America to get through this season. Keep panic out, but wisdom, prudence, and carefulness.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I want to see and hear You more clearly in these unusual days. I want to know what is going on from Your vantage point. I want to know how to reply from Your heart and plan. We must know You and make You known in the earth right now. It can be the Church’s finest hour, if we stay in Your Word, look with Your eyes, and respond with Your heart. I see much fear in those with no anchor in You. Those trying to navigate the situation are naturally fearful. Who wouldn’t be?! The Church is called to be Your antidote, calm in the storm, others-focussed, instead of self-concerning. Grant me a supernatural grace to show Jesus to my family and neighbors.

There is still a lot of fear-generating news swirling around. Media and other influencers are trying to make us distrust the government leaders who are trying to help us as fast as they can. Some plans take time. Some things cannot be instituted overnight. Send Your angels to help with logistics, Lord. Download wise strategies to those in positions to make them happen. We command Leviathan to cease its twisting and turning of truth that makes the President’s plans seem like a lose-lose to the citizens. We cut off those irresponsible tactics. They are trying to hurt the President and his teams, but they are hurting the people, instead! Let wisdom, truth, peace, grace and compassion—all characteristics of Christ—win the day! Let people look for and find Jesus in mass numbers—a Great Awakening! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Awakening will come fully this year in America if we persist in prayer and action!

Jesus Is Our Peace

We often pray for Jesus to give us peace. We lay hands on the traumatized and ask the Lord to bestow His peace on the afflicted one in place of the anxiety they are experiencing. But we need to look at what the Bible actually says about peace. 

In John 14:27, Jesus promised us that He would give us His peace. In Ephesians 2:14, the Bible tells us that Jesus is our peace. Isaiah 9:6 lists many names for Jesus and one of them is “Prince of Peace”. When we put that all together, we see that Jesus is the Prince of Peace. He is actual, tangible peace. He wants to be that peace which reigns in us as we entrust our lives to His loving care. 

The stuff of earth will never be able to take His place as Peace in the midst of the storms we face. He is unshakeable! Relationships can’t be stable enough. Health won’t give it to us. Financial stability won’t provide it. It can only come from Jesus, our Rock and our Redeemer, our Fortress and our Friend. Only Jesus can be our peace. We must know Jesus. Then we can say, “On Christ the solid Rock I stand. All other ground is sinking sand.” We must have Jesus. Invite Him to be Your Peace today. Now, go introduce Him to those who are fearful around you.

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
  • Cast all your cares on Him, for He cares for you.
  • Intercede for those you know who are fearful, especially in light of current events.
  • Say over the nation, “Jesus come and BE Prince of Peace over America! We say, ‘You did not come to simply give us peace. We declare You are our Peace.’”
  • Find someone to minister the love and peace of Christ to today.

A prayer you can pray:

Jesus, Prince of Peace, come and be my peace today! You are a peace-filled safe haven of love. You are a solid, immovable, unchanging Rock. You are my fortress and strong tower of safety. I can trust You! You have saved me from all the plans the devil had to destroy me. You are my Healer and Provider. You are worthy of all of my worship. Knowing You, how can I ever be afraid? Fear is the exact opposite of Who You are. I ask You for a divine exchange of all of my worry and anxiety for Your nature of Peace. 

I pray the same for those I know who are fearful today. I intercede for a nation in panic, looking for answers. You are the only answer to crisis and stability, Jesus. Come and BE Prince of Peace over America! I say, “You did not come to simply give us peace.” I declare, “You are our Peace!” Amen.

Today’s decree:

Jesus is our peace!

President Trump Addresses CoVid19 to the Nation 

“From the beginning of time, nations and people have faced unforeseen challenges, including large-scale and very dangerous health threats. This is the way it always was and always will be. It only matters how you respond, and we are responding with great speed and professionalism.

“We are cutting massive amounts of red tape to make antiviral therapies available in record time. These treatments will significantly reduce the impact and reach of the virus.

“Additionally, last week, I signed into law an $8.3 billion funding bill to help CDC and other government agencies fight the virus and support vaccines, treatments, and distribution of medical supplies. Testing and testing capabilities are expanding rapidly, day by day. We are moving very quickly.

“The vast majority of Americans: The risk is very, very low. Young and healthy people can expect to recover fully and quickly if they should get the virus. The highest risk is for elderly population with underlying health conditions. 

“My administration is coordinating directly with communities with the largest outbreaks, and we have issued guidance on school closures, social distancing, and reducing large gatherings. Smart action today will prevent the spread of the virus tomorrow.

“For all Americans, it is essential that everyone take extra precautions and practice good hygiene. Each of us has a role to play in defeating this virus. Wash your hands, clean often-used surfaces, cover your face and mouth if you sneeze or cough, and most of all, if you are sick or not feeling well, stay home. 

“To ensure that working Americans impacted by the virus can stay home without fear of financial hardship, I will soon be taking emergency action to provide financial relief. This will be targeted for workers who are ill, quarantined, or caring for others due to coronavirus. We are not in a financial crisis, this is just a temporary moment of time that we will overcome together as a nation and as a world. 

“We are at a critical time in the fight against the virus. We made a life-saving move with early action on China. Now we must take the same action with Europe. We will not delay. I will never hesitate to take any necessary steps to protect the lives, health, and safety of the American people. I will always put the well-being of America first.

“If we are vigilant, we will significantly impede the transmission of the virus.  The virus will not have a chance against us. As history has proven time and time again, Americans always rise to the challenge and overcome adversity.

“Our future remains brighter than anyone can imagine. Acting with compassion and love, we will heal the sick, care for those in need, help our fellow citizens, and emerge from this challenge stronger and more unified than ever before.

“God bless you, and God bless America.  Thank you.” (President Donald J. Trump)

“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.” (Proverbs 29:2; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare, “CoVid19 must stop in its tracks!”
  • Ask the Lord to quickly and miraculously heal those that have CoVid19. Click here to pray for some of them by name.
  • Intercede for President Trump, Vice President Pence, members of the CoVid19 Task Force, members of Congress, and other national, state and local government leaders, as they consider the best ways to help the nation right now.
  • Thank God for the resources this nation has at its disposal, as well as the speed at which the nation is responding at all levels and across all sectors. 
  • Pray that Americans stop panicking, replacing the panic with practical self-care.
  • Say, “We will heal the sick, care for those in need, help our neighbors, and emerge from this challenge in awakening and revival!”

A prayer you can pray:

God, we, Your Church, declare in the authority You have bestowed on us, “CoVid19 must stop in its tracks!” Too many are now afflicted in the U.S. We are boldly interceding for a sudden stop to the advancement of this virus. We also ask for the quick and miraculous healing of those already afflicted with it. We will pray for them by name as we become aware of them. 

We thank You again for President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. To see V.P. Pence begin the CoVid19 Task Force meeting in prayer was encouraging. He is a righteous man leading a government task force by seeking You first. That is the way to get solutions! We know that a nation that calls on the Lord will be saved! Let the healing  come and let the harvest come in! You have so richly blessed America, Lord, and it is time for those blessings and riches to go to work. Let them be used to help those who may suffer from the economic fallout of this national trial. Let our governing entities be good stewards of the finances we have, and bring forth good solutions. Bring the solutions quickly. Let the funds be deployed rapidly. Let this bring comfort and quell some of the panic that’s occurring. Bring a peace that focuses on practical care, instead of panic buying and selling. 

And, let Your Church arise as beautiful carriers of Your peace in the midst of the chaos. We will heal the sick, care for those in need, help our neighbors, and emerge from this challenge in awakening and revival! Bless us, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Praying and acting with compassion and love, our nation will see the sick healed and CoVid19 stopped!

Where Are the Faith Filled Warriors? – Conclusion

“Are you taking the opportunity to show the lost you are fearless, full of faith and joyful? Or do they sense your anxiety about coronavirus?

“A crisis of faith has been exposed. Coronavirus is embarrassing the church.

“Have you noticed any difference at all between the godless world and those who are seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus, the Healer? Bold decrees of faith, not confessions of fear and worry, should be exploding out of our mouths!

“Instead, Christians are hiding in caves, running from the battle and trembling not in the fear of the Lord, but the fear of the enemy.

“Sure, take precautions, but don’t cower. Don’t respond like the world. Don’t allow the enemy to impact your life. Live! Be free! You are covered by the blood of Jesus!

“Of all people, we should be the ones preaching faith not fear. Put the ridiculous spiritual face masks away. Your mouth is your weapon! Don’t allow the enemy to muzzle you. Speak to the fear and command it to dissipate! Renounce the tactics of the evil one! Let the world see just how powerful Jesus is and how different his children are! We run to the battle!

“‘He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.’ (Psalm 91:1-3; ESV)

“God’s instructions in Psalm 91 are to reject fear! That is your initial strategy, not antibacterial soap and fist bumps.

“‘You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.’ (Psalm 91:5-6; ESV)

“Is it okay to take precautions? Response is good, reaction is not. The moment fear or worry enter in, we can know the spirit behind coronavirus has touched us even if the disease has not.

“People are refusing to travel, cancelling vacations, rejecting invitations to public gatherings, hiding away at home and waiting for the world to end. Yes, this is absolutely embarrassing and is no way to represent our mighty Healer!

“We need an awakening of bold faith. It’s time for God’s people to rise up in the face of the enemy, with fire in our eyes, and cast him out! We fear none other than God, and we will, as a unified army, assault the darkness and laugh at the threats. You are in this army, mighty warrior. Take your stand and let the world see you are fearless, relentless and full of the fire of the Holy Spirit!

“Even if safety demands a physical mask, take off your muzzle and open your mouth. The world needs to hear the message the enemy is trying to shut down. It’s a message of healing, freedom and abundant life.

“The lost are not safe! I leave you with a commission. Those who don’t know Jesus, who have rejected his leadership and lordship, are in grave danger. We shouldn’t be surprised when trouble comes, and though we have an advocate, those who have said no to God do not.

“We must intercede for them, we must war on their behalf. Messages of awakening should be sounded night and day. They are not in a safe place.

“‘If you are not careful to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and awesome name, the LORD your God, then the LORD will bring on you and your offspring extraordinary afflictions, afflictions severe and lasting, and sicknesses grievous and lasting.” (Deuteronomy 28:58-59; ESV)

“‘Your life shall hang in doubt before you. Night and day you shall be in dread and have no assurance of your life.’ (Deuteronomy 28:66; ESV)

“Doubt is hanging before our nation. Dread has come. Assurance of life is fading, for the lost, that is. The redeemed, you and me, are the ones with the answer, the solution, the antidote!

“We need a massive move of God, a revival, an awakening in our nation. Faith is our only hope and repentance is their only hope, but what a great hope it is!

“So, let’s end the embarrassment as we put on our armor and arise as mighty men and women of God, filled with faith and driven with a passion for the lost. I pray this current crisis will be just what they need to turn to Jesus in full force.” (Article by John Burton)1

“Because you have made the LORD your dwelling place— the Most High, who is my refuge—no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent. (Psalm 91:9-10; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read Psalm 91 out loud as a declaration of faith.
  • Read the contrast of blessings and curses God declared over the Hebrews in Deuteronomy 28. The choice now is to be obedient and choose Christ, or to be disobedient to God’s plan of salvation. Make a conscious choice to choose obedience to Christ or the fruit of rebellion. 
  • Make this statement, “It’s time for God’s people to rise up in the face of the enemy, with fire in our eyes, and cast him out! We fear none other than God, and we will, as a unified army, assault the darkness and laugh at the threats. We will take our stand and let the world see we are fearless, relentless, and full of the fire of the Holy Spirit!”
  • Be driven with a passion for the lost and intercede for “those who don’t know Jesus, who have rejected his leadership and lordship, are in grave danger.”
  • Cry out for a great awakening in our nation!

A prayer you can pray:

[Before you begin to pray today, read Psalm 91 out loud as a declaration of faith. Also, read Deuteronomy 28.] 

Father, the earth is experiencing a very unusual circumstance. People are consumed with fear over a virus. The flu is common and kills tens of thousands every year, but we “know” the flu. COVID-19 is a virus we don’t know. It is an unseen enemy, and the terror is of the unknown. Each of us calling ourselves “Christians” must make a choice. We must either declare our love and trust in You before the world around us or we must choose disobedience to the precious life laid down for us. We must be obedient or rebellious to Jesus. That is a choice we did not realize we are making, but it is exactly what we are doing. It’s time for Your people to rise up in the face of the enemy, with fire in our eyes, and cast him out! We must fear none other than You. If we will, as a unified army, we will assault the darkness and laugh at the threats. We will take our stand and let the world see we are fearless, relentless, and full of the fire of the Holy Spirit!

Let the lost see Jesus in us! Let those who don’t know Jesus, who have rejected his leadership and lordship, see they are in grave danger. They must see Jesus. What a perfect opportunity we have if we will intercede as if their lives depend on it! Indeed, they do! We cry out for a Great Awakening, Jesus! Come and save the people You gave Your life for. Amen.

Today’s decree (by, John Burton):

“Faith is our only hope and repentance is the only hope for the lost, but what a great hope it is!”

Where is the Fearless Army of Faith? – Part 1

“Dread has come to the church. The following verse is a warning to rebels of God, yet it is manifesting among Christians today. Embarrassing.

“‘Your life shall hang in doubt before you. Night and day you shall be in dread and have no assurance of your life.’ (Deuteronomy 28:66; ESV)

“As Believers, we are promised abundant life and a life free from fear. Those who rebel? Dread has come. Why is the church responding like the lost? Why are so many afraid, anxious and losing hope? We have a problem.

“Dr. Drew Pinsky was quoted by FOX News: ‘Essentially the entire problem we are having is due to panic, not the virus,’ he said. ‘I was saying this six weeks ago. We have six deaths from the coronavirus, 18,000 from the flu. Why isn’t the message, “Get your flu vaccine’”?’

“Pinsky, host of ‘Dr. Drew After Dark,’ said the coronavirus impact has been milder than initially projected.

“‘The entirety of the problem now is that people are being pushed into bankruptcy. Travel is down. The supply chain is being interrupted because of panic,’ he reiterated.

“‘The flu virus is vastly more consequential and nobody is talking about that.’

‘He said that people who are wearing respirator masks are engaged in ‘panic behavior’ rather than preventative measures.

“‘It is a press-induced panic that will have real consequences. It will not be the virus,’ Pinsky said.

“If Dr. Drew is furious that secular society is panicking about coronavirus, I believe we as Christians should be all the more furious.

This fear that’s causing supposed blood-bought followers of the most powerful being in existence to absolutely freak out over a minuscule chance that they might be touched by a flu-like illness is ridiculous when compared to their concerns about eternity.

“If there’s a much greater chance of going to hell, where is the panic, the concern, the preparation? This road is very narrow and few will avoid eternal torment, yet people are stressed over a virus? Yes, some have died, and that should cause heartfelt compassion, but it shouldn’t result in anxiety. While numbers may increase and appropriate health precautions should absolutely be taken, as of the writing of this article, of the 327 million people living in the United States, nine have died from coronavirus. The percentage? 0.0000000275229358%, or approximately 1 in 36 million.

The chances of going to Hell? Much greater than 50%. Some would argue more than 99%. Again, where is the urgent, intense concern?” (To be continued…) (Article by John Burton)1

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.” (Matthew 7:13; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord. Remind yourself of how great He is and how intimate He is with you.
  • How are you doing in the fear department? Feeling nervous, anxious, terrified? Ask the Lord why that is? Where do you not trust Him, fear Him, or understand His deep, deep love for you? Let Him minister to that fear with a goal of setting you free.
  • Read Psalm 46. Declare verses 1-3 and 7 over you and your family, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.”
  • Now, be brave and consider how concerned or unconcerned you are about souls slipping into hell. Be real with the Lord. Let Him change your perspective and your heart. Intercede passionately for the lost!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I worship You. You are the Maker of the heavens and the earth, the creator of all things, and the lover of my soul. You have saved me, healed me, and delivered me. Of whom shall I fear? Why am I feeling fearful over this coronavirus? Is this truly responsible caution, or am I not trusting You somewhere? Show me, Lord, and deliver me. I should be an example to the world of faith and trust in You. Right now, most of the Church appears to be acting just as panicked as the world! Lord, I repent. Heal my heart and mind with a greater revelation of the love of Christ! I declare over myself and my family, “God, You are our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. You, Lord Almighty, are with us; You are our fortress.”

Let me fear You above all else. Let me be terrified that anyone I know would slip into eternity without Jesus. Let me cry out with passionate intercession for the lost all around me. Jesus, save them! Use this coronavirus situation to awake a passion in me to tell them about You before it is too late. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will lay our fear of the coronavirus aside, and cry out to reach the lost slipping into hell in mass numbers worldwide.

Good News from the Coronavirus taskforce!

“The Trump Administration is leading an ‘all-of-America’ approach, as Vice President Mike Pence calls it, to protect Americans during the global Coronavirus outbreak. Led by Vice President Pence, the task force convened by praying about this issue facing our nation. That is Godly leadership!


“‘Last week, at this table, the President met with pharmaceutical leaders, we met with nursing home leaders, leaders of commercial labs, airline industries,’ Vice President Pence said. ‘We’re bringing all of the businesses of the country to bear to protect the health of the American people.’

“‘I’m pleased to report…that [many] insurance companies have agreed to waive all copays on coronavirus testing and extend coverage for coronavirus treatment in all of their benefit plans,’ the Vice President said.

“Medicare and Medicaid announced recently that beneficiaries will have Coronavirus testing and treatment covered. Now, private insurers have made that commitment, as well.

“Insurers also agreed to cover tele-medicine services, which will allow all patients—particularly among the vulnerable senior population—to be treated without feeling the need to go to a hospital or doctor’s office.

“After sitting down with insurance leaders at the White House, the President traveled to Capitol Hill that afternoon, where he and Vice President Pence met with lawmakers. ‘We just had a meeting on stimulus, and you’ll be hearing about it soon. But it was a great meeting,’ President Trump said.

“He also had one important message for Americans during this time: We’re prepared.

“‘Everybody has to be vigilant and has to be careful. But be calm,’ the President said. Thanks to early preventative measures by the Administration, as well as the strong fundamentals in our economy and job market, America is in great shape to weather any storm.” (One Voice Prayer Movement Team)

“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)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • We do not look first to government for our salvation or protection. We look first to God. However, we do want to thank the Lord for a government that is making positive steps to help our citizens in this time of crisis. 
  • Look through the article above and thank the Lord specifically for those things the government has done. Pray over each of those measures to be put in place smoothly and without delay.
  • Pray for our senators and congressmen to support the executive branch’s plans and efforts. We need unity! 
  • Keep praying for Vice President Mike Pence and the coronavirus taskforce as they seek solutions for our nation on this issue.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we are thankful for President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence’s efforts to get ahead of the Coronavirus that’s hit America. Many people, including many Christians, are fearful and our government’s leaders work on this will be helpful. People need to see that our leaders are working to help protect both our health and our families’ financial well-being. Thank you for the leaders of pharmaceutical companies, nursing homes, laboratories, airlines, etc., agreeing to do what they can to help limit the spread of the virus and hold costs to reasonable levels. Thank you that the insurance companies agreed to waive copays and some other deductibles, so people will seek medical care. Also, that they will allow, even encourage the use of tele-medcine services for those worried about going to doctors’ offices, where they may encounter the virus. 

Now, Lord, we need to see both branches of Congress work with the executive branch to ensure these agreements are carried out. We decree that the politicization of this epidemic is wicked and evil and hurts p[eople. Both sides must work together to put reasonable measures in place quickly. This will help quell the fears, especially of those that don’t know Jesus. Drop Your strategies into the hearts and minds of Vice President Pence and the rest of the Task Force until things are stable again. Thank You, Jesus, amen.

Today’s decree:

We are thankful for Godly governmental leadership in  America!

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.
