Kavanaugh Hearings – Day 3

Yesterday was a long day of Senate Judiciary Committee members grilling Judge Kavanaugh on about every aspect of his life. They covered his judicial and political philosophies. They explored his judicial background and record. They asked about his tenure as a staff member in the Bush White House and many other things. They drilled down deep, as we knew they would. It has really been informative to be here at the Hart Senate Office Building praying on site with insight. How are you doing? Gaining clarity from Holy Spirit? The day today will be similar to yesterday, allowing each Senator on the Committee a second round of questions. Likely, these will be clarifying things the judge said yesterday. Each Senator will have 20 minutes to ask questions, making the day a bit shorter. Keep up the good work!

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season; its leaf will not wither, and whatever he does will prosper.” (Psalm 1:1-3; MEV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that you and I clearly hear Holy Spirit and know how to pray for Brett Kavanaugh, the Senate Judiciary Committee members, and the future of our nation.
  • Pray that the Body of Christ will not grow weary and stop praying at this point. We need to stay strong on the wall and keep at it!
  • Intercede for the intercessors to avoid falling prey to the political spirit. It is so easy to listen to these hearings and divide along political lines, instead of unite over the Word of God. We must hear clearly!
  • Come against all confusion, protest, witchcraft and demonic attacks in the hearing room. These all cause confusion. We, through our prayers, can keep this stuff at bay, so the decision our nation needs can be made.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we pray for Dutch and the other leaders and intercessors at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings. Let them hear Holy Spirit clearly. This is not just about seating another justice, but it is about the furtherance of turning this nation toward Your purposes. Strengthen the intercessors. Keep the Ekklesia on the walls, Lord, through the day and into the night. Keep our focus on You. Do not let us be emotionally swayed by the political rhetoric we hear. If we will be able to intercede properly, we have to be able to focus on Christ and Your Word. Keep us pure of heart. We take authority over all of the enemy’s attempts to cause confusion, delay or derail the hearings, throw Judge Kavanaugh off, or simply disrupt. Holy Spirit, descend in Your peace and shalom. Lead, guide, and direct the entire important process. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

The next Supreme Court justice will be a person who loves God and upholds the U.S. Constitution.

Kavanaugh Hearings – Day 2

This will be a very long day – for Judge Kavanaugh, for the Senators on the Judiciary Committee, and, I hope, for those of us praying, as well. Stay with it, saints. Don’t grow weary. Each of the 21 senators will have 30 minutes to ask questions of Judge Kavanaugh. This means that the meetings could last until 9:30 in the evening. We will continue to be watchful. It is likely to be a very interesting and informative day.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede against tiredness and weariness for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Senate Judiciary Committee members, their staffers, and all of the intercessors on site.
  • Pray that these 21 Senators ask the right questions and that they will have ears to hear the answers.
  • Ask God to bless the prayer leaders and intercessors who traveled to Washington, D.C., at great cost to pray for these hearings. Let them see and hear.
  • Ask God to bless all the prayer leaders and intercessors who live and work in Washington D.C., as they daily bear the weight of intercession for our nation. Ask God to refresh them with the new troops working alongside them this week.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, there is a long day ahead of us at this juncture in our nation’s history. We feel the weight of it. It could become a tiring day, both physically and emotionally. We ask for supernatural grace and strength for Judge Kavanaugh, the 21 Senators questioning him, and the staff serving them all throughout the day and into the night. Holy Spirit, especially strengthen the intercessors who have gone to Washington, D.C., some at great cost, to pray onsite with insight. Bless those prayer leaders who live and work there and have welcomed those from other states to join them in prayer this week. Let spiritual eyes see and spiritual ears hear Your heart and Your will for America, Lord. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Grace and strength to all involved in the Supreme Court nomination hearings for Brett Kavanaugh this week!

Sep 2018

Kavanaugh Hearings – Day 1

Today will be an introductory day. Senate Judiciary Committee hearings will begin at the Senate Hart building. Each of the 21 Senators on the Committee will have about ten minutes each to make statements in the form of opening remarks. This will give us an idea of how they think and what they may have already discerned about Judge Kavanaugh. The judge spent most of the time since his appointment by President Trump meeting with these Senators, answering their questions and letting them get acquainted with him. Some will still not agree with him politically, and will make statements accordingly. However, this is supposed to be an apolitical position. Don’t let their statements sway you. You are going to be praying and discerning.

“Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you. Yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.” (Isaiah 41:10; NHEB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede for all involved today – for strength and soundness of mind.
  • Pray that the statements made about Judge Kavanaugh are fair and true.
  • Bind all falsehoods and lying for political gain from any of the Judiciary Committee members.
  • Pray for prophetic discernment for the Christians who are interceding. We cannot be found at odds with God’s will. We must be in perfect partnership with Him as we pray.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, make us ready for the day ahead. Sharpen our discernment. Grant physical and emotional strength to Judge Kavanaugh and the Senators who will be discussing him before the nation. Many questions have been asked in private, but the answers will now be presented on the public stage. Intervene and keep the political passion to a minimum, or let the people see through it. We bind every force of darkness that would twist and turn words into swords. Let God be God in the midst of the hearings. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

We will not be shaken by what we see and hear, but God will intervene to give us HIs chosen Justice!

Preparing for the Kavanaugh Hearings

Tomorrow, the actual battle for the Supreme Court will heat up. As I have been telling you all summer, this is a critical week. From the day Justice Kennedy’s retirement was announced until just a few days ago, we have kept this in our thoughts and prayers. For the sake of your children and grandchildren, and the future of America, please don’t ignore this week! I am going there to pray, as are many other concerned ministers and praying saints. We have to hear and know what God is saying about Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Please use GiveHim15 this week to follow along and help us discern the perfect will of God. I will give you a run-down each day of what is planned. Please, please pray!

“Be ready and keep ready, you and all your hosts that are assembled about you, and be a guard for them.” (Ezekiel 38:7; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Prepare yourself in worship to the Lord.
  • Ask the Lord to consecrate your heart, eyes, ears, and mind.
  • Check your politics at the door and filter what you hear through the Word of God.
  • Ask God to give us a person who will open the nation’s gates to life and shut them to a death culture!
  • Declare, “We choose Life!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we bow ourselves before You in worship and adoration of Your Son, our Lord and savior, Jesus. Holy Spirit, consecrate our hearts, eyes, ears, and minds, as set apart to Your purposes today. Forgive us our participation with any political spirit. Correct our alignment and make it with You, alone. Line us up with Your Word and Your perfect will for this country. Help us to see what we need to see to effectively join You in intercession for our nation’s future. We desire this nation to choose Life abundantly. We close the door to death and destruction and we choose Life! Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We choose Life for our nation and our descendants who will live in this country!

Sep 2018

What is This All For?

We need to call for the prodigals. We need to call for those who have never known the Lord. Those in deception need Jesus. The Light is coming. Glory is coming. Revelation is coming. He is coming to the one and He is coming to entire regions. Veils will be lifted off of cities and off the minds of individuals. Demonic strongholds will be broken. Sweeping revival is coming!

They do not believe, because their minds have been kept in the dark by the evil god of this world. He keeps them from seeing the light shining on them, the light that comes from the Good News about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.” (2 Corinthians 4:4; GNT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Tell the Lord how much you love Him.
  • Prayerfully remind yourself how desperate He is for the lost and the prodigals! Christ died for them.
  • Intercede for His light and glory and revelation to sweep over the land.
  • Say, “You Presence is coming and breaking demonic strongholds over individual lives and over regions!”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, at times You overwhelm us with Your presence. When we say this is all about You, that’s exactly what we mean. It is all about You. Our goal is to please You. It is to love You and bring you pleasure. We love You! You deserve the prodigals. You deserve the lost souls. They need You and You died for them, Jesus. They are your inheritance and Your great delight. If only they knew that! Lord, send Your glory! Send Your light and revelation! Remove the veils that blind us from seeing You. Both the saved and the lost must see Jesus! If we could see You the way You desire us to, strongholds would break away and revival would pour forth through our neighborhoods and across the land! Give us grace to receive Your presence, worthy One. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Sweeping revival is coming to America!

Who’s Contending for Our Freedom?

President Trump said some things at the White House dinner for evangelical leaders that I think are important for us to know. “He said, ‘I have done some things for me and my family that were also done for you.’ There are decisions he made about Jerusalem. He made decisions about attacking the social media’s attack against conservatives. He’s clearly done these things for us, not just his family. When he said that the midterm elections in November ‘will be a referendum on your religion,’ it was pure Cyrus out of the Bible saying to the Jews, ‘I’m standing in the gap for your faith. Are you standing in the gap for your faith? I’m fighting for you guys. Are you fighting for you guys?’ We need to contend for the faith that has been given to us. We need to contend for our freedom. Trump said, ‘This will be a referendum on your religion.’ With that he added, ‘It’s a referendum on free speech and the first amendment (to the Constitution).’ Your free speech is already being broken by the platforms we are on—the social media platforms. ‘You’re one election away from losing everything you’ve got,’ Trump said. Wake up, Church! You’re one election away. We must get this out across our networks. Nobody else is going to raise up the trumpet!” (Lance Wallnau)1

Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.” (Jude 1:3; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask Holy Spirit to stir up passion for Him in the heart of every Christian pastor and leader.
  • Say, “Where there is resistance to Holy Spirit, Lord, raise up new leaders. We call them forth from every sector of society. Even if they don’t see themselves as leaders, give them the authority to act on Your behalf. Tell them what to do and say, and protect these obedient ones.”
  • Contend for signs and wonders, personally, for others, in the earth, and governmentally.
  • Cry out for mercy for our nation! Cry out for unity among the brethren! Cry out for confidence and boldness to fall on the Church in America!

A prayer you can pray:

“God, it is time for Christian pastors and leaders in America to become passionate! If the leaders do not respond to the prompting of your Holy Spirit, then you will raise up new leaders, as You did in America’s first revolution. You took ordinary farmers and merchants and bankers and others and you put them in positions to contend with the reins of history. Raise up the completely new voices that are honest and earnest and anointed to cause a coalition of power to come together. Jesus will be made magnificent. Give us signs and wonders. Stretch out Your hands as You did in the Book of Acts. Perform the supernatural and assist us. We cannot do this without You. We ask for an extension of mercy over America for the sake of Your Church, for the sake of Israel, and for the sake of the nations. Let there be a trumpeted warning that echos, even reverberates, in each of our hearts that we are right now entering a critical season. Like in the feast of Purim (Book of Esther), we must spiritually arm ourselves and go forth and contend for the right to exist, as a people in our own nations. I pray for a confidence and boldness to fall on the American Church. May we become a united movement, in the name of Jesus. Amen.” (Lance Wallnau)2

Today’s decree:

We will wake up and contend for freedom in this nation to freely express our faith!

A Prophetic Warning From Our President

“Our movement of Christians is so scattered, fragmented and siloed off  through ambition and the autonomy of Christian leaders. We are so concerned about our mailing lists and our donor base, that we don’t have a mechanism for coherent communication and messaging like our opponents do. We have got to change this.” President Trump held a dinner for evangelical leaders at the White House this last Monday night. “President Trump was not saying he was a Christian, like us. After he asked the press to leave the room, he said, ‘The (upcoming) elections are a referendum on your religion.’” “He is saying, like a Cyrus, ‘I am here to protect you. I am here to help you. I believe in you. I believe what you are saying is good for the country. This is going to be a dangerous time. A persecution is dangerously on the horizon for you Christians. It is not a question of like or dislike, the opposition is going to turn over everything we have done. They are going to do it quickly and violently.’ You see, he knows the rage, the animus, and the hatred that is trying to destroy him and his family. He said, ‘There is a level of hatred that is just unbelievable.’” (Lance Wallnau)1

As they serve between the porch and the altar, let the priests and ministers of the LORD weep and pray: ‘Spare your people, Lord, and do not make your heritage a disgrace so that nations ridicule them. Why should they say among the people, “Where is their God?””” (Joel 2:17; ISV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask the Lord to pour His zeal out on you and His Church.
  • Pray for harvest—of souls, votes, influence, persuasion, and spiritual authority.
  • Call for the release of the angels to help us! Ask the Lord to send them to wherever spiritual harvest is ready.
  • Ask for angelic assistance where the Body of Christ needs to wake up and war for the future of their state and this nation.
  • Say, “The gates of hell cannot prevail against the Bride of Christ!”

A prayer you can pray:

“Lord, we ask for the zeal of the Lord of Hosts to touch the hearts of the Body of Christ. Create a wineskin out of us, a net, that will be able to let division and differences pass through, but which will capture our hearts. We need a harvest of hearts, a harvest of votes, a harvest of influence, a harvest of persuasion. Give us a harvest of spiritual authority that commands angels to assist us. Give us an authority that rends the veil that is over the mind of America. Tear off that veil! Loose angels that will move in every single congressional district in every single state that is a battleground state. I say that the battle will shift in the heavens over those states! The footsteps of the Believers there are going to be thundering and echoing in the corridors of hell. Raise up a people that are not going to be asleep in the garden as the disciples were. In Jesus’ name, amen.” (Lance Wallnau)2

Today’s decree:

The Body of Christ will link arms in unity, so the battle for the nation can be won!

The Lord God Loves Us All!

Today, we declare it is the responsibility of the church to lead in eliminating racism, prejudice, and division in our society. As believers in Christ, we take our stand against racism in all its forms and declare that it has no place in our lives. We repent of racism and break all agreement with it. As believers in Christ, we take our stand against dead religion in all its forms and declare that it has no place in our lives. We repent of dead religion and break all agreement with it. Today, we command an end to the authority of the spirits of racism and religion that have influenced our churches, politics, economics, civic organizations, our city, our state, and nation. By the authority of Jesus Christ, we declare that all other spiritual authority is broken and the authority of the Kingdom of God is established. We declare the strongholds of racism and religion have come down never to be established again.

Opening his mouth, Peter said: ‘I most certainly understand now that God is not one to show partiality, but in every nation the man who fears Him and does what is right is welcome to Him.’” (Acts 10:34-35; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • We declare that God is raising up a new generation of believers who will no longer comply with any form of racial prejudice, cultural disunity, or divisive religion, but will live compelled by the love of God expressing the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • We declare that cultural reconciliation is established today.
  • We declare that Christian unity is established today.
  • We declare that both the righteousness and justice of God is established today.
  • We declare today, that a new day of racial reconciliation and revival has dawned, throughout our churches, our city, our state, and the nation.

A prayer you can pray:

(Today, make the declarations in the prayer points above.)

Today’s decree:

We decree that America will be the nation where it is shown that every person of any race is welcome in Christ!

The Atlanta Covenant

“Racism in any form is a grave sin against God and man. Mankind is made in the image and likeness of God. Racism stands vehemently against this truth by attempting to subjugate, suppress and destroy His image in humankind. Like all sin, racism is destructive, divisive, and ultimately demonic. It is never benign, respectable, or acceptable. Because the Church of Jesus Christ has been complicit in the sin of racism, the Church must now repent of racism and take a stand against all of its forms and expressions. Racism has no place in our lives, families, churches, government, or nation. Each culture and ethnicity is made in God’s image, all stemming from Adam and Eve, and therefore bearing inestimable, God-given value. We recognize that religion has been used as a means to affirm and support racist ideologies. Today, as the Church of Jesus Christ, we repent of racism and reject any ‘religious movement’ that embraces it. The church of Jesus Christ must express the values of love, unity, empathy, and forgiveness, which are critical components of the Kingdom of God.”(From the Preamble to the Atlanta Covenant)1

Have we not all one father? Has not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?” (Malachi 2:10; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read The Atlanta Covenant. If you agree with it, sign it.
  • Intercede for Christians who have linked racism and religion together – justifying the separation of the races in church services and only inviting members of their own race to work together in citywide projects and activities.
  • Identificationally repent of racial division in the political and governmental arenas where we have lined up behind candidates because they share our race. Or where we have supported legislation because it is promoted to benefit one racial group over another.
  • Worship God for the beauty of diversity He has created as expressed through every tongue and tribe and nation!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, thank you for impressing upon some Believers the need for The Atlanta Covenant. How wonderful to have a document that everyone in the Body of Christ can agree on. How sad that it is needed. Forgive us, Your Church, Your representation in the earth, for justifying “the most racially divided hour in America” – our church services. There is much division in the church and to divide along racial lines is unbecoming to the beauty of the Bride of Christ. I can’t say to the hand, “I have no need of you.” I can’t say to the heart, “I have no need of you.” However, every time I refuse to work with ethnically different members of the Body, that’s exactly what I’m doing. I am cutting off a needed part to reach my community with the Gospel. Everytime I vote for my own race, instead of the one who will usher in righteousness and justice, I am aligning with racism. Every time I express my uneducated opinion about proposed legislation that appears to benefit one people group over my own, I create injustice. Oh God, help us! Jesus, Your Bride is beautiful exactly as You created her! Each one has a part in expanding Your Kingdom and in reaching this nation! I receive them all! Amen.

Today’s decree:

“Racism in any form is a grave sin against God and man.”2 We will not tolerate it in America or participate in it!

What Justice Looks Like – Ending Racism in America

This last weekend over 10,000 Believers gathered at Stone Mountain, Georgia, to “repent of the past sins of racism, affirm the Church’s leadership role in overcoming our nation’s divisive past, and commit to a new unity as believers. Both the location and date of such an event were historic. In 1915, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) burnt its first cross in public on the top of Stone Mountain, and nearly 55 years ago to the date of OneRace Stone Mountain, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., delivered his famous ‘I Have a Dream’ speech in which he dreamt freedom would one day ring from Stone Mountain. ‘Where in 1915 they started burning crosses to the ground, we’re changing that now,’ said Billy Humphrey, co-director of OneRace. ‘Reconciliation is not a matter of a moment but a matter of a movement. It takes time, intentionality and turning hearts toward one another. We are starting that today.’”1

“From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.” (Acts 17:26; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • If you harbor any resentment in your heart toward any people group other than your own, run to the throne of grace! Your repentance will receive forgiveness from the Father.
  • Decide that you will be a part of the healing, not the hurt; the blessings, not the curses. (Will Ford)
  • Intercede for unity among the races in America.
  • Intercede for people and/or situations you are aware of where there is injustice due to prejudice and racism.
  • We must be intentional to end racism. Is there someone from another nationality or with different colored skin that you can serve today in a practical way? Go show them God’s love.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I bare my heart before You and ask You to expose any place where I harbor resentment or preconceived notions about people of other races. I will gladly repent! Change my thinking. I shake off societal and familial stereotypes. I repent for my family line where we have not seen others as equal to us and where we have spoken of or treated others as less than us. Make us one, even as You are one! (Intercede for people and/or situations you are aware of where there is injustice due to prejudice and racism.) Give me Divine ideas of how to show Your love to others, whether by acts of kindness or purposeful conversations where we begin to understand each other better. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We choose to turn our hearts toward one another and end racism in America!
