A Pure, On-Fire Church

“I’ve had several profound dreams in which I’ve seen two babies, named Revival and Awakening. In the first they were almost newborns, although Awakening was slightly older. Gently I held them and breathed in the fragrance of their sweet heads. Nurses, which I discerned to be angels, waited in the background to attend them. Recently I dreamed of these babies again – now somewhat older, but still quite young. Tenderly I kissed Revival’s bare toes, as Awakening crawled across the room. Once there, he seemed to lift up the edge of an old section of carpeting to partially hide underneath it. In alarm I thought to myself, ‘Watch out! Doesn’t anyone realize what he’s doing could start a fire?’ Then I woke up. Wow. Could it be that old coverings of religiosity are being lifted and that fires of awakening are imminent?” (Diane Lake)1

“…Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.” (Ephesians 5:25b-27; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Welcome the infants, Awakening and Revival, in the Church! Ask God to grow them quickly among us!
  • Call for the purifying fire of God’s holiness in this move of revival and awakening!
  • Cry out for purification and holiness for the Bride of Christ!
  • Identificationally repent of blatant sin, complacency, unsanctified mercy, and taking God for granted that permeates our current church culture.
  • Thank God that He desires revival and awakening far more than we do and He will do it!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we see that Revival and Awakening are born and slowly growing among us. We welcome them and ask You to pick up their growth pace in America! We purposefully call for Your work of purification of Your Bride. Send Your fires of holiness. Forgive our blatant sin and ignorance of You. We act like you are a god of wood and stone –  unable to see or hear us! What are we thinking! Deliver us and draw us to You, quick to repent and anxious for sanctification! You want this far more than we could ever ask or imagine, so come, Lord Jesus, come! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Church in America is about to be on fire with Awakening and Revival!

Fresh Holy Ghost Outpouring!

There’s a new Jesus Movement coming! Some of you know what that is and some don’t. This will be a Jesus Movement on steroids. There is something much bigger coming than what happened in the 1970’s on the campuses of America. It’s not just going to invade the universities and the Charismatic community, but every denomination. I was recently approached by a denominational leader in an airport. We knew each other somewhat. He was the leader of his particular denomination in America. He said, “I was crying out to God this morning, because I so want our organization to turn and be a part of what God is about to do. I told the Lord, ‘I need You to make us a fresh wineskin for what You are about to do.’” God is going to pour His Spirit out on campuses and on the Church, even those in churches who don’t know a lot about the Spirit being poured out.

In the last days, God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.’” (Acts 2:17; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Cry out to God to tip the bowl of intercession to the earth!
  • Cry out for Him to pour out Holy Spirit over America and over our young ones once again!
  • Ask for hearts to stir with longing for this someone [Jesus] they haven’t met yet.
  • Ask that God brings the harvest to full ripeness.
  • Say, “The lost will long for Jesus Christ, who is the only one who can satisfy the emptiness and cravings of this generation!”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, tip the bowls of intercession. Send Your Spirit once again! Let a wave of Holy Spirit’s power be poured out and the Gospel be so powerful as it’s shared. Let hearts be ready. Let the harvest truly be ripe. Let young people hear the Gospel, finally, under an anointing of Holy Spirit.  Let something in them come alive! Let them say, “I want this Man!” Raise up voices in the Church and in business, education, media, and in our government. Raise up voices that know You intimately. Come, Holy Spirit! Wash over America once again! In Jesus’ loving name, amen.

Today’s decree:

Make us a fresh wineskin for Your Holy Ghost outpouring!

Remembering the Fallen

In 2015, a 10 year-old boy from Redding, CA, named Preston Sharp discovered that our nation’s veterans are being forgotten as time goes on. During a burial ceremony for his own grandfather who was a Navy Veteran, he became distraught about this. His mom said, “You can’t complain about something unless you try to do something about it.” Preston replied with, “I’m going to do something about it, mom!” This young man has now organized the placing of flags and/or flowers on over 50,000 veterans’ graves, reminding us all that those who fought to defend our freedom are not forgotten! Even President Trump has noticed this young man’s efforts and he honored him in his first State of the Union Address in January 2018. You can see it here. Preston’s new goal is to honor veterans in all 50 states and to challenge others to get involved wherever they are through The Flag and Flower Challenge. Check it out!

There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:13; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for Preston Sharp and others who are making sure the men and women who fought for America’s freedom are never forgotten.
  • Thank the Lord for President Trump, who always honors those serving in the U.S. armed forces.
  • Intercede for the families of those who have lost loved ones serving in the U.S. military this past year, especially those whose loved one died on active duty.
  • Pray for God’s strategies to be presented to those in government offices that are caring for our veterans. Intercede for better care and services for those who have served us so well.

A prayer you can pray:

Thank you, Lord, for people like Preston Sharp who have remembered those who have given their lives for this country’s freedom. We honor them today along with our fallen troops. Raise up many more like Preston. Help his movement gain ground as our military are so worth this honor. Thank you for giving us a leader like President Trump who models honor of our U.S. military. We intercede today for the families of those who have died in service to our country this year. Comfort them in their loss. Draw them to Yourself. Let them know their loved one’s sacrifice will not be forgotten. We will remember! Grace our government officials working with our veterans to provide the nation’s best care for them as long as they live. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

We will never forget the cost paid by our veterans to keep America free!

A Missionary Generation is Coming

We are going to make it back to those words uttered on the beach at Cape Henry by Robert Hunt that the Gospel will go forth, not only to this land, but to the nations of the earth. There’s another great missionary movement coming from these shores. There’s an outpouring of the Holy Spirit that’s coming to America that’s going to awaken zeal for souls again. It will be a passionate zeal for souls here and around the world. There’s a generation about to be raised up and they will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony, and they will not love their lives unto death. There is a cause greater than life itself that they will embrace.

The accuser of our brothers and sisters, who relentlessly accuses them day and night before our God, has been cast down and silenced. By the blood of the Lamb and the word of their witnesses, they have become victorious over him, for they did not hold on to their lives, even under threat of death.” (Revelation 12:10-11; VOICE)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Call forth those filled with a harvest-vision.
  • Say, “The zeal of the Lord will consume these Jesus-lovers!”
  • Call forth this generation of those who care about nothing except their testimonies of Jesus slain to give men new life in Christ!
  • Join them, if you dare!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, bring us back to Your purposes. Let us be a sharp threshing instrument for You. Let us take the Gospel of Jesus around the world.  Let us be a light to the nations, so we can export the Gospel more than porn or drugs. Fill us with a zeal to share the Good News everywhere we go, every day we live. Stir us up to be those You have created to be Your missionaries to our cities, states, this nation, and the nations of the earth. Show us where to go and how to connect with like-visioned ones. Let the fire on our hearts’ altars never go out. Let us carry the story of Your shed blood, Jesus, and our testimonies of how that saved our lives to everyone we encounter. This new breed will fear nothing. We will want eternal life for others so much, we won’t care about our own lives. Thank you, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

There’s a passionate missionary movement coming from America’s shores!

Calling for the Righteous Leaders

If President Trump would just give us some pro-life judges, who will stop legislating and start honoring the God-given Constitution, then I would consider him a success. This is not a political thing to me. This is me crying out to God, “Give us righteousness in this nation.” I don’t say, “Let this or that party win.” I say, “God, give us righteous leaders in government!” I don’t care what party they’re with. I say, “Give us righteous men and women in Congress again. Give us righteous judges as before (like it says in Isaiah 1:26.) Give us people there that boldly and unashamedly will call on You. Give them the boldness to get up and say, ‘In the Name of Jesus.’”

And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning: afterward you shall be called, the city of righteousness, the faithful city.” (Isaiah 1:26; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask God to draw Believers serving in governmental offices into closer intimacy with Himself.
  • Intercede for them that they will walk righteously in their elected offices. This is what God calls “success”.
  • Pray that they will educate themselves to know our Constitution and how the Constitution is based on God’s Word.
  • Call forth those righteous laws the nation still needs. Pray that God’s Ekklesia in the Congress will hear and see those laws in the heavens, write them in the earth and champion them until they are passed into law.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, restore credibility to Your people serving in public office, not so we can be politically strong, but spiritually strong.  Raise up government leaders that truly know You. Raise up those that aren’t just there to “Christianize”, but give us Your people who are wise in the ways of the Constitution and law and know You very well. Say to them, “Come up higher. I want to show you things.” Open their ears to hear and eyes to see Your plans for this nation. Give them the words for righteous legislation and give them the boldness to carry it to completion. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

God, give us righteous leaders in government!

From “The Donald” to “John”

Since the day I heard President Donald J. Trump’s middle name was John, I have been asking God to transform him. I have been asking that the real estate tycoon, the multi-millionaire, the man who branded himself as “The Donald”, be transformed by God into “John”.  John was “The Beloved” and “The Revelator”. John was most definitely a Son of Thunder, but one whom the Lord harnessed and brought that zeal into humility. There are some Believers who don’t believe that God can do what we preach. Do we really believe that God can transform somebody? I don’t like all the things Abraham did. He slept with his wife’s maid and produced Ishmael. King David slept with Bathsheba and then murdered her husband. I don’t like it that Saul murdered Christians before he encountered Christ. However, I do believe God redeemed them and the final story was not that they were adulterers and murderers, but that they were sons and daughters of the Most High.

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” (2 Corinthians 5:21; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede for President Donald John Trump today. Ask God to transform him from “The Donald” to “John, His beloved one”.
  • Many in Washington, D.C., say he has accepted Christ as his Savior. Pray that He will truly know God and His ways. Humbly ask God to work the transforming power of sanctification in his life.
  • Shut the mouth of the accuser against him. Repent if you have joined the accuser of the brethren toward the President.
  • Decide to intercede for him whenever you hear evil words spoken against him or when you hear him utter evil words against others.
  • Thank the Lord that He is using President Trump as a Cyrus to accomplish His will for our nation in this season of time.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I know you love President Donald John Trump. Transform him from “The Donald” to “John, Your beloved one”. Help me to see him as You see him. You transformed my life and I know you can transform him into the image of Christ, Your Son, as well, if he has truly said “yes” to You. If he hasn’t, then introduce him to Yourself. Either way, I command the accuser of the brethren to be silent! I say that every word spoken against him will fall to the wayside. You are with him and You have a purpose for him being in office right now. Strengthen him and let our prayers encourage him. Use him as You once used Cyrus to turn a nation back to You, Lord. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that President Donald Trump will be as John, the beloved of the Lord!

Honoring the Bible in Schools

“Every civil government is based upon some religion or philosophy of life. Education in a nation will propagate the religion of that nation. In America, the foundational religion was Christianity. And it was sown in the hearts of Americans through the home and private and public schools for centuries. Our liberty, growth and prosperity was the result of a Biblical philosophy of life. Our continued freedom and success is dependant on our educating the youth of America in the principles of Christianity.” (Noah Webster, apx. 1840)1

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare that the Bible will be allowed and welcomed reading in school by students and teachers, for free reading and as a literary source.
  • Intercede for students and teachers that have been reprimanded for having Bibles out during school hours, or for referring to the Bible in teaching and speaking in public schools.
  • Identificationally repent on behalf of staff, administrators, parents, school boards, lawyers, and others who have persecuted Christians for reading and/or referring to the Bible while in school. They don’t understand what they are doing.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I agree with Noah Webster and declare that the Bible will be allowed and welcomed reading in school by both students and teachers. If a child wants to read the Bible, instead of a library book, they should be allowed to. If they want to use it as a resource to quote in a paper, that should never be a problem. If a teacher turns to it for wisdom and prayer support for their students, they should be able to keep it on their desk. Turn this around in our schools, Jesus. Forgive our governing leaders and school administrators for dishonoring Your precious Word! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Bible is the best foundation for our children’s education!

Wisdom from Noah Webster

Noah Webster, who published the first American dictionary in the English language, said, “Education is useless without the Bible. The moral principles and precepts contained in the scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. All the miseries and evils which men suffer proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible. The man who weakens or destroys the authority of that book is an accessory to all the public disorders that society is doomed to suffer.”1 Our destiny is very spiritual. Our roots are very scriptural. God is trying to turn us back toward Him.

For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little.” (Isaiah 28:10; KJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • The Bible tells us that God honors His Word above His Name. Declare that His Word will be honored in America once again!
  • Identificationally repent for how our modern American society has pushed out the Word of God from almost every sphere.
  • Decree Noah Webster’s words, “The moral principles and precepts contained in the scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. All the miseries and evils which men suffer proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible. The man who weakens or destroys the authority of that book is an accessory to all the public disorders that society is doomed to suffer.”
  • Intercede for our current legislators to know this truth and follow it.
  • Find scriptures you can decree over the spheres of society – family, the Church, government, business, education, arts and entertainment, and the media. Make these daily declarations through the end of the month.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, it is amazing that You honor Your Word above Your Name. We ought to do the same, but we are so dismissive of the Bible’s wise words in our current modern society. Forgive us. We’ve removed Your Word and its guidance in full or in part from our schools, our government, and the media, in particular. It’s as if we are saying that we do not need You! We declare the words of one of our founders, Noah Webster, The moral principles and precepts contained in the scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. All the miseries and evils which men suffer proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible. The man who weakens or destroys the authority of that book is an accessory to all the public disorders that society is doomed to suffer.” We, Your Ekklesia, say today that we desperately need Your Word as our guide in every sphere of society! Give us Bible verses as the sword of the Lord to effect change in these spheres. Remind us to decree them daily for the rest of May. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

Our nation’s government must be built on the principles in the Word of God if it is to continue!

The Roots of American Education

106 of the first 108 colleges in America were founded on the Christian faith. Students at Harvard and Yale were required to read the Bible twice a day. Harvard’s founders said, “All knowledge without Christ is vain.” Harvard’s motto was, “For Christ and the Church.” Yale founders said, “Every student shall consider that the main end of his study is to know God and Jesus Christ.” Princeton’s motto was, “Under God’s power, she flourishes.” The great evangelist, Jonathan Edwards (the “sinners in the hands of an angry God” guy), was the third president of Princeton. The first president of Princeton, Jonathan Dickinson, said, “Cursed be all learning that is contrary to the cross of Christ.”

For God has already placed Jesus Christ as the one and only foundation, and no other foundation can be laid.” (1 Corinthians 3:11; GNT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Let a grief rise up within you as you consider the condition of our formerly Christian colleges, which are so secular today.
  • Pray that every college and university with Christian roots would experience a turnaround.
  • Intercede for the professors and those on the governing boards of Harvard, Yale and Princeton. Call for them to receive a revelation of their school’s roots and that God would reveal Himself to them in a glorious, life-changing way.
  • Intercede for the students in these schools to discover the truth about Jesus right on their campuses in waves of Holy Ghost outpourings.
  • If you’re in a college, find out if the roots were Christian and call the school to return to its roots.
  • Declare that the Word of God will once again be a welcome and foundational text taught in our nation’s educational system.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, give me Your heart for the educational system of America. It is so liberal in most schools that You are locked out and clearly unwelcome. Let revival come to our colleges and universities! Turn them around and let them return to their roots! Let the professors of our nation’s major universities receive a revelation of who You are that bypasses their mind. Or, convince them, Jesus, as only You can. Let multitudes of students find Christ on these campuses and start Bible studies and prayer groups there. I declare that the Word of God will once again be a welcome and foundational text taught in our nation’s educational system. Jesus, be honored in our schools! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that America’s education system is going to return to its godly roots!

A Dream With a Clear Message

“I dreamed I was with a couple of friends and family members in Washington, DC. Exiting the Trump hotel, where The Turnaround event was held, was a courier, which I discerned to be an angel. He was carrying a scroll. His face was set toward the U. S. Capitol building. When He got to the Capitol, he went inside and we followed him in. We followed him to the House Chamber where President Trump had recently given his State of the Union Address. All of the lawmakers were in their seats and there were many people in the gallery. It was a packed house. The courier carrying the scroll went and stood at the double doors to the Chambers. The angel announced loudly and with authority, ‘All rise!’ Just as had happened at the recent State of the Union Address, some people stood, while others disrespectfully stayed seated. The angel then opened the scroll and said very loudly and adamantly, ‘The verdict has been determined. America shall be saved!’ Some of the Congressmen stayed adamantly in their seats, but some fell on their faces in worship and the glory filled the room.” (Anonymous national intercessor at The Turnaround Event.)

But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:23-24; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare, “America shall be saved!” Keep declaring it. Declare it by faith to the north, south, east and west. Declare it over you city and state and across the nation.
  • Determine to tell others about Jesus. It starts with one soul saved at a time.
  • However, it doesn’t stop there. Nations are “saved” when Believers in positions of governmental authority introduce righteous laws into the culture. Ask God to stir your Congressmen to boldly write laws that would please the Lord. Intercede for them.
  • Contact your Representative here and your Senators here. Write and encourage them to act righteously, even if you don’t feel they currently are. Who knows, together with prayer, you may change their minds!

A prayer you can pray:

America shall be saved! America shall be saved! You said it, Lord, in a dream given to a saint, so You must mean to do it! America shall be saved! I take hold of this prophetic Word by faith and declare it over this nation – to the north, to the south, to the east and to the west. I declare that my city shall be saved, my state shall be saved, and the U.S.A. shall be saved! I will do my part to share Your love with the lost souls around me. Help my congressmen and senators do the same in their realm of authority, if they know You. Make them bold and determined to offer before the House and Senate legislation that pleases You. I will write them and tell them how I am praying for them and I’ll ask them to consider righteous legislation to helps all of their constituents. In Jesus’ glorious name, amen.

Today’s decree:

America shall be saved!
