We Can Turn the Court

I want you to believe with me that God is not finished with America. I have never been more convinced that we are moving toward a great revival in this country and around the world. All of the prophetic Words I hear from prophetic voices that I trust are saying the same thing. All of those Words, as well as all the prophetic dreams different ones are having, are contingent. Their fulfillment depends on how well a portion of the Church cooperates with Him in prayer, repentance, and seeking His face. God has never required a majority of people to be doing those things in order for Him to move. He has always been willing to move with a remnant. There is certainly a remnant in this nation that has been praying. So, I am confident that we are going to see this revival, and that America will recapture her destiny.

God is telling me that we have reached a point now that we can see the Supreme Court shifted. We can see past ungodly decisions reversed. He is ready to roll back abortion decisions, prayer in schools, Bible reading in schools, and other similar decisions. So, we need to press in and pray for those things to take place. 

The first way we need to pray is for our elections in November. Ask the Lord to give us His choice for president. Ask Him for a president that will appoint pro-constitutional justices. Ask Him for one that will appoint pro-life judges. We must also pray for the Senate, because the Senate confirms judicial appointments. We must have that for the next 4 years. During these upcoming 4 years, at least one, if not two, Supreme Court Justices will be placed on the bench. We can turn the Court. No decision made in our lifetime is likely to be more consequential than this one.   

If you have ever voted, you need to vote in this election. Do not be controlled by a party or by a political spirit. You need to vote for life. Understand that in God’s eyes, there is no issue more important than Life. Abortion brings a curse on the nation. It is unthinkable that a Christian would vote for any person that is pro-abortion. That is absolutely unconscionable. We must vote for Life.

Pray before you vote. Do not let a day go by that you do not pray for the elections and pray for the nation’s future. You need to vote for righteousness. You need to vote for justices that will interpret the U. S. Constitution and not make laws. You need to vote for a government that rests on His shoulders and pleases Him.

“The key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder; so he shall open, and no one shall shut; and he shall shut, and no one shall open.” (Isaiah 22:22; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Talk to the Lord about the spiritual war America is facing. Ask Him to shift our nation through a Third Great Awakening and through a governmental shift.
  • Ask Him to give us the right president, the right senators, and the right Supreme Court justices. 
  • Pray for a Supreme Court that will honor our Judeo-Christian foundations and beliefs.
  • Ask the Lord to roll back time and give us justices that will reverse some of the ungodly decisions former courts have instituted.
  • Say, “Lord, I am asking You to shift the courts. I am asking You to shift the Supreme Court and give us a godly, pro-life, pro-constitutional justices.”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we come to You now and we thank You for what You have been doing in this nation. We see the enemy at work and we know he is warring and fighting to steal our destiny.  He is warring for the soul of this nation. There are two distinct groups that want very different things. We want biblical values. We want the destiny You have planned for America to prevail. We want to be that light and voice for the Gospel to this nation and to the nations of the earth. We believe You are going to do this in part through a Third Great Awakening. You are going to pour Your Holy Spirit out on this nation that will be unlike anything the earth has ever seen.   

We know that government matters to You and You are also planning to turn our government Your direction. Your Word says that righteousness exalts a nation and sin is a disgrace. Your Word tells us that when righteousness rules, there is peace and the righteous rejoice. We know that the Supreme Court of the United States must be changed in order for this governmental shift to fully happen. Lord, forgive our courts for unrighteous rulings that have given increased access to sin and darkness. You can roll back those decisions. You can roll back time.  

With Isaiah 22:22 and Matthew 16 authority, we, Your Ekklesia, have the authority to bind and loose, and to open and close doors. We close the doors now to every unrighteous, humanistic, anti-Christ, unbiblical, pro-death, pro-immorality decision. We open the door to reversal. We say that Your Kingdom rule is coming to that Court. Change it in any way that You deem appropriate and necessary. We pray all these things to honor the Name of Jesus, amen.   

Today’s decree:

God is going to roll back prior ungodly Supreme Court decisions!

A Former President Opines on America

“You don’t become President of the United States. You are given temporary custody of an institution called the Presidency, which belongs to our people. Having temporary custody of this office has been for me a sacred trust and an honor beyond words or measure. Let us remember that any tribute really belongs to the 245 million citizens who make up the greatest—and the first—three words in our Constitution: ‘We the People.’ … They are an extraordinary breed we call Americans. So, if there’s any salute deserved …, it’s to the heroes everywhere in this land who make up the doers, the dreamers, and the lifebuilders without which our glorious experiment in democracy would have failed.

“We had faith because the heroes in our midst had never failed us before. Teddy Roosevelt, told Americans not to hold back from dangers ahead but to rejoice: ‘Our hearts lifted with the faith that to us and to our children it shall be given to make this Republic the mightiest among the peoples of mankind.’ Tom Paine knew what these Americans with character of steel could do when he wrote: ‘The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.’ 

“We do not shirk from our duties to preserve freedom so it can unfold across the world for yearning millions… We have a healthy skepticism of government, checking its excesses at the same time we’re willing to harness its energy when it helps improve the lives of our citizens… We respect the values that bind us together as families and as a nation. For our children, we don’t think it’s wrong to have them committed to pledging each day to the ‘one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.’ And we have so many requirements in their classrooms; why can’t we at least have one thing that is voluntary, and that is to allow our kids to repair quietly to their faith to say a prayer to start the day, as Congress does. For the unborn, quite simply, shouldn’t they be able to live to become children in those classrooms?’

“I know I’ve said this before, but I believe that God put this land between the two great oceans to be found by special people from every corner of the world who had that extra love for freedom that prompted them to leave their homeland and come to this land to make it a brilliant light beam of freedom to the world. It’s our gift to have visions, and I want to share that of a young boy who wrote to me shortly after I took office. In his letter he said, ‘I love America because you can join Cub Scouts if you want to. You have a right to worship as you please. If you have the ability, you can try to be anything you want to be. And I also like America because we have about 200 flavors of ice cream.’ Well, truth through the eyes of a child: freedom of association, freedom of worship, freedom of hope and opportunity, and the pursuit of happiness—in this case, choosing among 200 flavors of ice cream—that’s America, everyone with his or her vision of the American promise. That’s why we’re a magnet for the world… This land, its people, the dreams that unfold here and the freedom to bring it all together—well, those are what make America soar, up where you can see hope billowing in those freedom winds.” (President Ronald Reagan)1

“For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” (Galatians 5:13; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare, “The United States of America is the land of ‘We the People’”!
  • Intercede for the 2020 elections. 
  • Above all, pray that this nation would continue to be free to honor God. Declare, “We are one nation under God! We will not reject You, remove You, or ignore, You, Lord! We will acknowledge our complete dependence upon You!”
  • Pray that the voters would choose a leader that will preserve the freedoms that are the distinctives of America—freedom of association, freedom of worship, freedom of hope and opportunity, and the pursuit of happiness.
  • Ask God to preserve us for His Divine and sovereign purposes, which are not yet complete.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we thank You all the time that You have established America for Your purposes. You have brought many here from around the world to form this great nation. You have made America an example of how You bless those who acknowledge You as Lord over them, which we have largely done over the years. We do not want that to end. We declare that we are still one nation under God! We will not reject You, remove You, or ignore You! We acknowledge our complete dependence upon You! 

Every election cycle brings before us a more serious decision as to those we elect to govern us. Those that want to remove You from our society are growing more bold. Their voices are louder. They have educated more of our young to think in humanistic ways. Unless You move on our hearts, we will fall to the enemy’s plans. 

Thank You that we still get to elect our leaders. They do not rule over us, but serve “We the People.” Let us take seriously our role to pray and elect those that will continue to honor and preserve the freedoms that are the distinctives of America. Some of those things are freedom of association, freedom of worship, freedom of hope and opportunity, and the pursuit of happiness. Let our dreams for our sons and daughters be fulfilled. Keep our nation free that future generations may freely dream and watch those dreams become realities! God, bless America, this land that we love. We boldly ask it in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We declare that dreams will continue to unfold in the United States of America!

Are You Ready to Vote?

A number of this nation’s founding fathers were clergymen. They did not have a problem with God in government. In fact, they designed our government so that He would be honored in it. They truly believed the government rested on the shoulders of Christ. A key hallmark of the government they structured was giving the people the right to vote for their own representation. They had had enough of kings and other rulers that did not allow private ownership of property, but taxed them unbearably. They wanted to be sure they had a say in how they were governed. They wanted their government to honor God.

We are coming quickly upon one of the most key elections in our history. I know that sounds trite and we have heard this before every election in the last couple of decades. The truth is that darkness is growing darker and bolder. The threat from globalists, anarchists, and secularists that hate God and our country is working itself into a tipping point. We cannot sit home and do nothing. Our prayers are critical and they should be primary. However, we must also get to the polls and vote!

In order to help you, here are some excellent tools designed by Believers: 

  1. Click here to go to the MyFaithVotes website. You can find out if you are registered to vote or how to register if you are not. You can apply for an absentee ballot if you want to vote by mail. You can also receive election reminders and find out who the candidates are and what they stand for. Everything you need to know about your elections is on this one site.
  2. Next, click here to find out how to help others get involved and vote, as well.
  3. Finally, read the article titled, OurChurchVotes, from Jason Yates, CEO of MyFaithVotes. He explains how to get your Church involved in the voting process. Pastors, you are going to want your church to become a voting church.  

For the sake of our nation and our children and grandchildren, I urge you to get ready to vote on November 3rd.

“Choose for your tribes wise, understanding, and experienced men, and I will appoint them as your heads.” (Deuteronomy 1:13; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for the government our founders designed which was meant to honor Him. 
  • We cannot abdicate our role in choosing our elected representatives. Pray for Christians to get out and vote! 
  • Intercede for pastors to be more bold in encouraging their congregants to vote. Ask the Lord to help pastors help their members know how to register to vote. Pray that they would preach on biblical issues and on the importance of choosing governmental leaders from the president on down.
  • Ask the Lord to give you creative ideas on how to get out the vote. Start with prayer walking and prayer driving your own community.

A prayer you can pray:

God, we declare today that we honor those that You anointed to establish the United States of America. We are thankful that they did so by giving honor to You in our nation’s founding documents. They sought You and You helped them. Lord, we need that help again today, so we humble ourselves and pray. This is not a perfect nation and we have sinned against You in so many ways, but we continue to seek You for mercy. We desire to see You honored more publicly. We want to see our citizens cared for in the best way. We want to be governed by those that will look to You or at least seek advice from those that know You. Help us, Lord.

The most practical thing we can do toward this end is to vote. We need to educate ourselves on who is running and what they stand for. We need to pray and vote. We need to use every tool available to us to help us. So, we thank You, Lord that You have given a creative idea to Jason Yates and his team to design MyFaithVotes and OurChurchVotes. Please let the Church use those tools to pray and vote! In Jesus’ Name we ask these things, amen.

Today’s decree:

We will pray and we will vote! America will be saved!

Healing History

Something spiritual is always flowing through history. It could be iniquity. It could be a broken covenant situation. Pain and trauma flow through the breaches of history. Blessings can flow through history as well. Because of these patterns, we know we cannot ignore history. We have to spiritually deal with history.

God never ignores sin. He never acts like it doesn’t happen. He provided a means of redemption through Jesus, so we can receive that forgiveness and move back into a place of blessing.

Prophetic and governmental intercessors have been interceding for America for decades now. They have sought God for this nation, their states, and their cities. God has led many to spiritually “map” those areas. Some intercessors have even specifically spiritually mapped their neighborhoods, and some have been led by God to map their own families. A great example of this is when the New York City Intercessors mapped all of New York City by zip codes. Amazing historical breaches and moves of God that had been long forgotten were uncovered! Intercessors have been led by God to do this so they can go back and find the points where God started something or wanted to start something. These are the points where the enemy has been known to work to stop the work of God or keep it from even beginning. Then, they pray and take action to correct history and apply Christ’s redemption to that place of pain.

To recap, when injustice, trauma, broken covenants or innocent bloodshed have occurred in an area, then we  see that the work of the Lord often stops until identificational intercession in prayer and/or an action heals history. Then, God starts to move again. That move is often striking in the signs, wonders, and miracles that follow. 

I talk a lot about the prayer Daniel prayed in Daniel, chapter 9. This is where we see the best example in the Bible of identificational intercession. We have no indication that Daniel participated in the historic sins of Israel, but something rose up within him when he read the scriptures and was reminded that Israel had been sent into exile for 70 years because of their sin. Because Jesus had not yet come and His redemptive blood had not yet flowed, Israel had to complete that 70 years. Daniel was reading the historical record and wanted to see Israel delivered. 

So, he humbled himself before the Lord and recounted the sins of the nation. He did not repent for his individual sins. He repented as a member of his nation. This is so important for us to get in our current place in history! In response, God sent the angel Gabriel to tell Daniel what Israel’s future history would look like!

You may not have partaken in things that have caused historical breaches. But if the pain is there, then there’s still a gap God wants to heal. If we will pray and ask God to show us where the pain began, He will lead us right to it, so we can repent, heal history, and move forward. Signs, wonders, and miracles will follow—in the healing of hearts, the salvation of souls, the changing of laws, and even shifts in cultural morality. Be one who advances Christ’s Kingdom somewhere in America. We say together, “Kingdom of God, come!”

“While I was speaking and praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and making my request to the Lord my God for his holy hill—while I was still in prayer, Gabriel, the man I had seen in the earlier vision, came to me in swift flight about the time of the evening sacrifice. He instructed me and said to me, ‘Daniel, I have now come to give you insight and understanding.’” (Daniel 9:20-22; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read and meditate on Daniel 9:20-22. It is a perfect synopsis of identificational repentance.
  • Read Daniel 9:4-19. This is Daniel’s actual prayer where you can see that he recounted God’s goodness to the nation and all He had done for them. Daniel also noted how Israel’s sin (satan’s work against them) affected their history.
  • Ask the Lord if there is an area where He wants You to stand in the gap. It could be for your family, neighborhood, city or state. It could even be a national issue.
  • Begin to intercede, read the Word, and take action as He leads.
  • Declare over that area, “Kingdom of God, come!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, take the prayers of the Church to another level today. We have been praying small prayers, often for ourselves, our family members, and our friends. We could be shifting history with our intercession just like Daniel did. A few intercessors have done much work in America, but it is clear that much more is needed now. The enemy is really on the warpath. He is trying to permanently shift our history. He wants to wipe it out completely. But we know that is not Your plan! You want to heal our historical breaches and send Awakening to our nation!

So, awaken Your Church to intercede as Daniel did. Let the whole Body of Christ receive this revelation now! We can map the history of our communities, our states, and our nation. We can find out what You want to do and how the enemy tried to stop it. Then, we can identificationally repent for the sin of the past and we can correct history! We even ask in advance for the Word of the Lord to be given as to how You will lead us forward as a nation. You sent Gabriel to give a message to Daniel – we ask for angelic messengers to be sent to us today too! Heal America and send signs, wonders, and miracles to our land! Jesus, heal our history, save souls, secure righteous laws, and secure cultural morality. Kingdom of God be advanced in the U.S.A.! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The identificational intercession of the Ekklesia will heal America’s history!

A Current Day Normandy for America!

[Today’s post is long. I make no apologies for that. It is one of the most important I have ever written! On August 5th, I asked you to pray for the Supreme Court. My friend, Ken Malone, had shared his dream about Admiral Farragut’s quote, “Damn the torpedoes. Tell him we’re coming!” Go back and read it here if you missed it. Then, read today’s post and be compelled to intercession. And you MUST vote November 3rd!]

The war for our America’s health and destiny has reached its Normandy. Either we storm the beach and experience one of our greatest breakthroughs ever, or we falter and endure one of our greatest defeats. We are in a rare and perilous time when a stalemate is not possible; there will be a winner. The war of which I speak is over the direction of the Supreme Court.

Far left, activist judges have controlled the High Court for 60 years. And please believe me when I say, no entity has opened the door to more devastation and destruction in America than the Supreme Court: sixty million aborted babies (did you get that—60 million?!); the removal of Yahweh’s influence from government and schools; the redefining of God’s most sacred institution, marriage; girls must now share showers with boys at school; and so much more. If the insanity isn’t stopped soon, polygamy will be next, followed by people marrying animals. The violence, crime, poverty, disease, family decay, addiction, deception and other evils we have reaped from their decisions are devastating beyond belief. One governor recently announced that it is okay to kill babies surviving abortions—after “making them comfortable,” of course. Your tax dollars and mine still fund an organization that murders babies, then sells their body parts. Members of Congress defend, laud and support these heinous behaviors. 

It seems that much of America has gone mad! And the Supreme Court opened the door to this hell. However, after decades of work and prayer, we have finally reached a point where the Court can be turned, and reversals can begin! Holy Spirit’s word to us while in D. C. was very clear: we can now “roll back time,” reverse demonic gains and “damn torpedoes” fired by Satan! This IS the season in which a divine reset is possible.

I am appealing to you, please pray faithfully, fervently, and boldly for the continued shifting of the Court. This branch of our government now hangs in a precarious 5/4 balance—sometimes tilting to the left, sometimes the right. The next President will end this seesaw. He will appoint—and the Senate will confirm—1 to 3 new Justices. This means that whoever wins this presidential election will determine the direction of the Court for the next 30-40 years. 

This election will either move us fully once more into an anti-Christian, anti-biblical, Constitution-dishonoring, majority on the bench; or will finally shift the Court to a pro-Constitutional, God-honoring solid majority. It cannot be overstated: WE MUST HAVE A PRESIDENT FOR FOUR MORE YEARS WHO WILL APPOINT CONSERVATIVE JUDGES! No decision made in our lifetimes will be more consequential than who we elect as president this November. Please pray for God’s will to be done in the upcoming elections and pray for the Supreme Court to fully shift.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, is more important to the healing and restoration of America. In the last election, 52 million evangelical Christians stayed home. Heaven must weep over facts such as this. If we all showed up and voted our biblical values, we could turn America around overnight. Pray that God awakens the sleeping giant, the Church!

Don’t grow weary now, praying Christian. This can be our finest hour. Let’s seize the moment!

“He appointed judges in the land, in each of the fortified cities of Judah. He told them, ‘Consider carefully what you do, because you are not judging for mere mortals but for the Lord, who is with you whenever you give a verdict. Now let the fear of the Lord be on you. Judge carefully, for with the Lord our God there is no injustice or partiality or bribery.’” (2 Chronicles 19:5-7; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare, “The Ekklesia will intercede for the Supreme Court of America, we will vote, and we will experience one of our greatest victories ever.”
  • After reading the appeal above, pray as the Holy Spirit leads you for the Supreme Court as related to the elections.
  • Ask the Lord to give us judges at all federal levels who are conservative and will interpret the law by the U. S. Constitution. 
  • Say, “We, the Ekklesia, reject every judge appointed to the Federal bench who judges by their own personal opinion and what they believe is right in their own eyes.”
  • Break the curses those types of past judicial decisions have brought on America.
  • Call for the Church to consider this issue when they vote November 3rd and declare, “The Church will vote righteously, considering the generations to follow us!”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we are convinced that one of the key issues in this upcoming election, if not the defining issue, is who will serve as the judiciary of the United States of America in our generation. The laws they allow to stand will affect our country for generations to come. Some will make decisions through their own interpretation of the law, even considering current social demands and political climate. Some, however, will judge righteously, looking to the U. S. Constitution. We would welcome them even more if they seek You in their decisions, because our nation was founded by You on a framework of covenant with You and Your biblical principles. These righteous judges will be those that understand the slippery slope of personal interpretation. We reject those who will judge according to their own standard. 

We, Your Ekklesia, will intercede for the Supreme Court of America, we will vote, and we will experience one of our greatest victories ever. We, the Ekklesia, reject every judge appointed to the Federal bench who judges by their own personal opinion and what they believe is right in their own eyes. We repent of the sins of past ungodly judicial decisions and break every curse off America that may have come upon us as a result. We say, “The Church will vote righteously on November 3rd, considering the generations to follow us!” We thank You for Your mercy, Lord Jesus, amen.

Today’s decree:

America will choose a president in November that will appoint conservative judges!

 The Devil Is Not Getting Away with Anything

“The devil looks like he is advancing his agenda across the nation, but he is not getting away with anything. All of his destructive agendas are being exposed and now he has to pay. There is no devil in Hell that can override Jesus’ authority. The Church of God has now moved into the aggressive and offensive position. As we learn God’s ways that defeat satan’s plans and agendas for our lives, families, countries, and the world at large, we are called to occupy with power and Jesus’ authority.

“The gates of hell will not prevail against God’s Church. There is seriously not one thing satan gets away with when the Church looks Jesus in the face. From Him, we receive direction, confidence, strategy, boldness, peace, assurance, and prophetic direction. He then unifies us to move together in new ways. 

“There has always been a plan in place for the advancement of God’s Kingdom and there is not one trick or demonic plan that will stop it. God is pulling back the curtains and revealing all of satan’s plans ahead of time. There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed and God has planned to always give us the victory. 1 Corinthians 15:57 tells us that nothing is impossible with God, and there is nothing more powerful than a praying Body of God-fearing people who will not allow evil to prevail. God is with us and nothing can stand against us.

“There will be a display of people with wicked agendas being brought to justice for everyone to see. There has been a time of repentance granted to them, but now there will be swift judgment coming to those who have tried to overthrow God’s plan and purpose. Some will fall on the same sword they have drawn on God’s people to try and destroy them. Many plans that were crafted by hell will never succeed and will actually backfire on them. Not only are people going to be exposed, but they will be sentenced for the evil crimes they have committed. There is no free pass for hideous acts of evil. 

“Look up. Trust God’s plan. Cease striving. Don’t panic. Rest in God’s ability to guide and direct our steps. When the enemy comes in like a flood, God will raise up a standard against him, just as He tells us He will do in Isaiah 59:19.”

“For evildoers shall be cut off; but those who wait on the Lord, they shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; indeed, you will look carefully for his place, but it shall be no more. But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. The wicked plots against the just, and gnashes at him with his teeth. The Lord laughs at him, for He sees that his day is coming. ” (Psalm 37:9-13; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Sit with Jesus and let Him remind you of His many victories in the Bible. Start with the story of the cross of Jesus. The Old Testament is filled with stories about how He delivered the people of Israel. What the enemy means for evil, God always turns for good.
  • Repent if you have thought the devil is being given free reign in America. Shift your thinking, so you can properly intercede.
  • Command everything being done in darkness to get in the light! As the Ekklesia, demand full exposure of evil plans and plots against the United States government, its leaders, and its citizens!
  • Declare, “Satan cannot override Jesus’ authority, and that authority resides in the Church!”
  • Decree Psalm 37:9-13 above, then decree, “God will be true to His Word!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You are God. There is none like You. Satan wants us to think he is Your counterpart, but he is nothing more than a being created by You. He works overtime to get Your people to fear him. He wants to cause us to forget You and Your ways—Your goodness, strength, victories, and ability to save and deliver us! We must keep reminding ourselves of that, so we don’t get overcome by what we are seeing and hearing. We must hold on to the Truth in Your Word, then let faith arise and proclaim that Truth. 

In the Name of Jesus, we command everything being done in darkness to get in the light! As the Ekklesia, we demand full exposure of evil plans and plots against the United States government, its leaders, and its citizens! We declare, “Satan cannot override Jesus’ authority, and that authority resides in the Church!” We will overcome him by the words of our mouth, the meditation of our hearts, and we will not love our lives more than Christ. It is Jesus’ blood that gives us true life. We live for You, Lord, and we know You can be relied on to fulfill Your Word. We pledge our allegiance to You again today, Jesus. We live for You and Your purposes. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Lord will expose and undo all the plans and plots of the wicked!

We Are Preparing for the Best Days of Our Lives!

“What may look like the end, almost always is actually a new beginning. Evil never wins; God’s LOVE WINS. When God’s people come into agreement with Heaven, we receive power to change things, destroy the works of Hell, gain new insight and wisdom that is not earthly wisdom, and partner with God in His plan and purpose. We are not meant to live in bondage, controlled by wicked agendas, tethered to destructive lawlessness and insanity. God has plans and blueprints to navigate in this hour and we will not be defeated… satan will be.

“This whirlwind of change is producing spiritual hunger on epic levels. New challenges always produce new ideas and instructions for navigating through the challenges. The Creator is giving us new blueprints and wisdom to create successful business ideas, community gatherings, and strategic plans on how to pray and pull Heaven’s plans to Earth. These are plans the devil can’t get his hands on.

“The situation our world is currently in has been building for a while, and God is fully aware of it. We’ve been hearing for years that God is doing a new thing. Now, we are watching Him reset our navigation system to guide us, instruct us, and empower us. Downloads of ‘never thought of before’ ideas and dreams from God are now accessible to us that will confound and derail the devil’s plans for destruction and confusion. Make no mistake: The most creative, exciting and awe-inspiring moments are right in front of us.

“New leaders and influencers, fathers with integrity, are arising! These are the next rank of Generals in God’s army. They have been hidden and tried by fire to lead in this final battle. These are the true leaders, full of humility and integrity, who have stood the testing and fires of hard times. They are rising to the top. These are God’s trusted ones who have God’s heart and can lead with compassion. They are filled with unwavering faith and tenacity. Character is their major strength and gifting falls second.

“Our best days are upon us. Let’s look at Jesus’ plans. Let’s not focus on all this other stuff. Let’s maximize the time and do what Jesus would do. The Church was never meant to be inside the building. We are the Church, and God is recruiting a bold army.”

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:19; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Proclaim, “What looks like the end is often God creating a new beginning.”
  • Shout, “Evil never wins; God’s LOVE WINS!”
  • Choose to agree with heaven that the end result of the chaos we see around us is a holy and divine reset, not a demonic one. Believe that Satan is playing into the Lord’s plans.
  • Call forth into this nation heavenly downloads of ‘never thought of before’ ideas and dreams from God.
  • Intercede for the new breed of apostolic and prophetic leaders filled with faith and boldness, mantled with glory, and manifesting the miraculous.
  • Declare, “The best days of Christ’s glorious Church are upon us.”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You are fully aware of everything going on in the world and in the United States right now. You are aware of the spiritual war and of the societal chaos. None of this is taking You by surprise. Evil never wins; Your LOVE WINS! We choose to believe that You are creating a new era of power and glory in America. The Great Awakening has begun! 

Signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth will be seen. Angel armies are coming to the rescue. Holy storms will drive the enemies of the nation back. Salvation and transformations of the hardest hearts will be very publicly seen. God, You are on the move!

We call into the earth realm miracles and notable signs and wonders. We call for downloads of creative thoughts and ideas that solve national problems, dissolve societal ills, correct history, and set America on a track to complete her destiny. We are to be a light to the nations, offering freedom and hope. We are to send the Gospel to all nations from our shores. Raise up the new brand of fiery, Holy Ghost-filled, faithful servant leaders. Kingdom of God, come now to America! Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Church will not be defeated, but will advance God’s Kingdom in this land!

We Are One Nation Under God

[My brother, Tim Sheets, released this message to his congregation yesterday. Every Believer in America needs to take this stand today!]

“The Lord asked me a question this morning. He said, ‘What are you going to do about the golden calf moment that just happened in America?’ Well, I didn’t know what He meant. I knew what the golden calf was in the Book of Exodus. I began to think about what led to the golden calf moment in the Bible. Moses had gone up the mountain to get the Ten Commandments. When he came down, they had made this idol. They had decided they would no longer be under God’s rulership. They had decided not to be under Jehovah, but under Baal. They chose to be under a demon power and they cursed the nation of Israel. 

“You may or may not know that the Democratic Convention was held last week. During two caucus meetings, the Pledge of Allegiance was recited, but the sentence, ‘One nation under God,’ was omitted. In doing that, those representatives purposefully stated that they were choosing not to be under God. I ask you, ‘Do you want to be under God or not?’

“The Holy Spirit said to me, ‘Are you going to let that word curse stand?’ I felt that question in every fiber of my being. Are we going to allow deceived people to curse this nation? It will bring a curse. I am personally not going to let that stand. When we hear blasphemy, which is what that is, we must engage. We must rebuke it and ask God to forgive the sin and heal our land.

“Jesus had people coming against Him all the time. He had demons after Him. The Bible details how Beelezebub came after Him. At one point, He asked His disciples, ‘What are people saying about Me?’ They answered, ‘Some say you are John the Baptist that has come back from the dead. Others think You are Elijah that has come back.’ Then He said, ‘Who do you say that I am?’ 

“I am asking the Church that question today, ‘Who do you say He is?’ Peter had answered, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God!’ Jesus replied, ‘Flesh and blood didn’t reveal that to you. My Father in heaven did.’ Then He said, ‘On this rock, I’ll build My Ekklesia. And the gates of hell will not prevail against it.’ To be the true Ekklesia, you must say who He is!

“Is this nation one nation under God or not? We must raise our voice and declare that it is!

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek… The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.” (Romans 1:16, 18 and 21; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • We, the Ekklesia, must corporately rebuke this curse. Every voice must be heard!
  • We must state who He really is.
  • We must state who we really are as the Church and as a nation.
  • We must break the curse and say, ‘No way is Baal going to rule over us!’ If the Ekklesia forbids it, it will be forbidden. If we allow it, it will curse the nation.
  • Say, ‘We are one nation under God and we desire Him in America. We acknowledge His love and care, concern and watchfulness over us. We do not reject Him, but we embrace Him and ask His forgiveness for those who have publicly rejected Him.’ We say, ‘They do not speak for us. Forgive them, Lord. They don’t understand what they are doing.’
  • Declare the Lordship of Jesus over your state and over the whole of the United States!

A prayer you can pray:

We come before You Holy God and righteous Judge. We stand before You King Jesus. You are King of Kings and Lord of Lords. We come as the Ekklesia and repent for the sin of our nation. We are so sorry that You were blasphemed last week at a gathering representing millions of Americans. Forgive us. Forgive this land for this hideous sin. We repent in Jesus’ Name. 

With the authority You have given the Ekklesia, we break this curse! No throne of iniquity will rise and curse this land. We bind and forbid this curse to take root in this nation. Lord, we ask You to remove evil leaders that would dare to do this. Remove the evil culture and warped philosophies that reject You and hold people in the bondage of sin. We break demonic doctrine off our government. Break them free from the darkness and let them see Jesus. Bring them into the Kingdom of light.

We say, “We are one nation under God.” We desire You in America. We acknowledge Your love and care, concern and watchfulness over us. We do not reject You, but we embrace You and ask Your forgiveness for those who have publicly rejected You. We say, “They do not speak for us. Forgive them, Lord. They don’t understand what they are doing.” Forgive our sin and heal our land, dear Lord Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We are one nation under God and God is welcome in America!

God Wants to Hover Over America

When God shows up, He shows up in unusual ways. It is so much more than that soft sense of peace we experience where we might say, “Oh, I feel His Presence.” It is a powerful, weighty, hovering sense of God. The fear of God is often there. The holiness of God is felt. That is part of what causes people to run to the altars or fall on their knees in the street and get saved!  

I am personally looking for an open heaven that doesn’t just open while we are worshipping in a service and then closes when we all go home. I want the kind of open heaven where the heavens stay open for weeks and months and years, until all of society is changed! We experienced this for 90 days in Colorado Springs in the summer of 2008. In Pensacola, FL, they experienced this for five years. I have been traveling around the country for a long time, and I have been watching and waiting for the next move to begin. I am always wondering who is going to contend for what God wants to do. He is waiting for somebody to believe Him and contend for what He has said! He’s saying, “Somebody believe for this, because I am ready to hover somewhere!” I think He wants to hover over all of America. He definitely wants to hover over many cities in this country. 

The Bible talks about the hovering presence of God in four places. The Hebrew word used is a reproductive term meaning, “To bring forth.” It is first used in Genesis 1:2 where it says, “The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.” The Lord would say, “Let there be…!” Then the Holy Spirit in His hovering would use His glory and power to cause something new to spring forth, and He would create that thing.

The same word is used in the story of Abraham and Sarah when he was 100 and she was 90 years old. They were well past child-bearing age, but the Bible says that the Spirit of God hovered around them and their bodies were completely renewed. We know this, because it was after this that a king saw Sarah and wanted her for his wife. It was after this, when Sarah died, that Abraham married again and had 6 more kids. 

These are examples of what God is wanting to do in this era! He wants to come and hover over our cities and nations. He wants to create some new things. He wants to completely change lives. He wants to completely restore cities. He wants to heal our land and relationships, and He wants to download solutions to our societal problems. We have to get the heavens open and welcome Him in, Church! Ask Him to come and hover over America!

“I will remain in Ephesus until Pentecost; for a wide door for effective service has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” (1 Corinthians 16:8-9; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray in the Spirit until you sense His presence. Get in the habit of practicing this daily.
  • Believe you receive what you ask for when you ask with the right motives. Ask Him to open the heavens over your community.
  • Declare, “Lord, I believe You want to come and hover in my city and many other cities in this land. I believe You are saying, ‘I am ready to hover somewhere!’ Lord, come and hover here!”
  • Pray for the transformation of lives and society that comes with a prolonged hovering of God over an area.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, my Spirit is stirred at the thought of Your Holy Spirit hovering over my city and creating things here that are on Your heart. I will pray in the Spirit until I feel You hovering here. I do not want to run in and out of Your Presence. I want to abide with You! I believe that You respond to the heart cry full of faith that dares to believe Your Word. You want to come and hover over our cities and create the kind of move of God that the Apostle Paul saw in Ephesus. You want to create new things and restore old ones.

Lord, I believe You want to come and hover in my city and many other cities in this land. You want to hover over America. I believe You are saying, ‘I am ready to hover somewhere!’ Lord, come and hover here! Heal the sick, save the lost, and deliver the oppressed. Let so many sinners come to Jesus that jails close. Let leaders be unable to escape the pursuit of Your love for them. Let the heavens open and let Your love sweep over this land renewing everything it touches. Jesus, come and hover over America! Amen. 

Today’s decree:

The Spirit of God is coming to hover over America!

Oh God, Step Down!

I want to share a scripture with you today that I feel is where God wants the Church right now:

“Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble before You! As when fire sets twigs ablaze and causes water to boil, come down to make Your name known to your enemies and cause the nations to quake before You! For when You did awesome things that we did not expect, You came down, and the mountains trembled before You. Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides You, who acts on behalf of those who wait for Him. You come to the help of those who gladly do right, who remember Your ways.” (Isaiah 64:1-5a; NIV)

There are times when the sin of a person, a people group, or even a whole nation make it hard for people to hear God. The atmosphere can become so devoid of people seeking God that the heavens become as brass. When there is little expectation that He will move, it becomes hard for Him to find the faith in the Church to facilitate His movement. We see this around the world in cultures, cities, and even whole countries where He is not welcome. 

Here in America, we have many that are very passionate for Christ and we have a prayer movement that has been maturing. Nevertheless, there are pockets where things are still very dark. Church, we need to cry out for Him! We need to call for Him to rend the heavens and come down. We need to cry out in passionate, heartfelt worship for Him to show up before our enemies. It looks like all hell has broken out against this nation, but we know God is never mocked for long. He established this nation and He watches over it. He wants to partner with us to see His Kingdom come to America. We do that by expressing our desire for Him.

He wants us to call out for Him. We want to make the same cry that Isaiah did. We want to call for the Lord to come to this nation and make Himself known in our midst. We want Him to make Himself known in the hardest and darkest places. We want Him to be revealed to the lost, and we want Him to reveal Himself to His enemies. We also need Him to make Himself known to our leaders.

He tells us in Isaiah 61 that He desires to work with us to “rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated.” We need to ask Him to “renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.” He goes on to say, “I love justice and hate robbery and wrongdoing. In My faithfulness I will reward My people and make an everlasting covenant with them. Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the Lord has blessed.” (Scripture from Isaiah 61:1-4, and 8-9; NIV)

We need to tell Him we want to be those people the world sees His hand on. We want to be those who have answers to restore our cities and answers for the hurting. We are the people of God and the nation desperately needs Jesus. Call out for Him!

“O that thou wouldst rend the heavens, and wouldst come down: the mountains would melt away at thy presence.” (Isaiah 64:1; DRB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Using Isaiah 64:1-5a, cry out for God to step down! Pray in the Spirit for a bit if you need to until you feel a strong passion, a strong call of your spirit to His. 
  • See yourself worshipping Him in the dark corners of this nation. Maybe you will worship over Chicago, where gang violence takes many lives every week. Maybe you will worship over Portland, where far-left groups are terrorizing a city. Maybe you will worship over New York City, where the highest number of COVID-19 deaths have been recorded. Weep with the Lord over these cities. He loves the people who live there. Call for His manifest Presence to show up in these dark places.
  • Ask Him to reveal Himself to our leaders: to our President and those in His administration, to our Congressmen and women, and to our Supreme Court Justices. Ask Him to make Himself known to your Governor and other state leaders. Ask Him to show up to the mayors of your state’s major cities, as well as to your own mayor and city officials. Cry out for God to step down!
  • Say, “We want to be those people the world sees Your hand on. We want to be those who have answers to restore our cities and answers for the hurting.”
  • Declare, “The mountains of society will melt before the great and mighty God Most High! He will affirm His covenant with us and anoint us to proclaim the Gospel of HIs Kingdom throughout the land!”

A prayer you can pray:

God, You are our God. We say there is no other God but You. We are in desperate need of You, Lord. There is so much going on right now that all we can think to do is cry out for You. Our nation must have Jesus! Rend the heavens and come down! Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides You, who acts on behalf of those who wait for Him. You will come and help us. We will remember and recount Your ways. Sin appears to be increasing, so let greater grace abound. 

God, save our cities. Save the ungodly leaders that are allowing the takeover of their cities. Save the hardest hearts. Come and reveal Yourself to the anarchists, the gangs, and others causing havoc, fear, pain, and the suffering of others. Anoint us to reveal Your Son to them. God, we call for You to make Yourself known to our national leaders. Let them fall on their faces before You, even as Nebuchadnezzar did. Show them Who You are and straighten things out. Show them that we are the people You have Your hand on. Download revelation to Your people that can restore our cities. Give us answers for the hurting. We say, “The mountains of society will melt before the great and mighty God Most High! You will affirm Your covenant with us and anoint us to proclaim the Gospel of Your Kingdom throughout the land!” We say, “You are welcome in America, Jesus.” Amen.

Today’s decree:

God, rend the heavens and step down into America!
