Pray Until the Birth is Complete

“The whole earth is groaning for the sons and daughters of God to enter into powerful times of pure, violent intercession in which we forbid the spirit of violent hatred from ruling in our great nation and release the Kingdom realm of righteousness, peace and joy! ‘And from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.’ (Matthew 11:12 NKJV) ‘I will give you the keys of Heaven’s Kingdom realm to forbid on Earth that which is forbidden in Heaven, and to release on Earth that which is released in Heaven.’ (Matthew 16:19 TPT)

“In a vision I saw the spiritual womb of America pregnant with a massive movement. This movement brings an increase of power, which we must passionately grab ahold of with clean hands and pure hearts. I saw the recent excess rains across America as a spiritual indication that the water has broken and the ‘baby’ is about to come forth. The baby in the womb represents Heaven’s vision: our Father’s purposes and plans. The rains also indicate a necessary washing over the land to prepare for the delivery of the baby. This washing is crucial for the Church of America.

“The enemy is fearful of this massive movement and has unleashed a murderous spirit to try to take out the baby/vision, but the sound of worship and the prayers of the saints are putting shields up. As we contend for the heartbeat of Heaven to come forth, the shields of God’s wrap-around presence are protecting the baby in the womb. Like a mother giving birth, it is critical to keep calling forth revival, awakening, and reformation until it is here in its FULLNESS.

“There is a spirit of slumber that wages war against the intensity required to birth this massive movement. The same demonic spirit which dulled the disciples in the garden of Gethsemane into slumber is at work today.

“America is pregnant with a massive, global movement, and as the Ecclesia, we must assume our position as the midwife, to be fully attentive to care for this baby coming forth. Oh the ache as the pure, righteous violence of Heaven is being released and the Kingdom is bursting forth!” (Rene Springer)

“From the moment John stepped onto the scene until now, the realm of Heaven’s Kingdom is bursting forth, and passionate people have taken hold of its power.” (Matthew 11:12 TPT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • “Call forth Revival, Awakening, and Reformation!”
  • “Beloved Church, we must present our hands and pray for them to be diligent and set apart for His works.” 
  • “Warrior Bride, while we do not ignore the battle we are in, we must allow the passion of Christ to now be the joy set before us as we focus on His face and endure the pain of birthing this movement.”
  • “Beloved Bride of Christ, when we start to go to deep and intense places of sanctification and prayer, tiredness and sleepiness will try to take you over. Speak over yourself, ‘Awake!’ and then cry out for a great awakening in America.”
  • “With one powerful voice, before the throne of grace, let us forbid the demonic assignment of hatred/violence in our great nation and release righteousness, peace and joy as our inheritance in the land.With one P.U.S.H (‘Praying Until Something Happens’).”
  • “Let us cry out from our innermost being: ‘Revival, come forth! Awakening, come forth! Reformation, come forth!’”

A prayer you can pray:

“Father, we call forth Revival, Awakening, and Reformation! We present ourselves to You as set apart for the good works You have created us for from before the foundations of the earth. We present our hearts and pray for the passion of Christ to consume us in order for our hearts to be given purely to Your plans. In this final crescendo, it is time for the world to see the risen Christ in the radiant Bride of Christ! We won’t ignore the battle. We see that we must joyfully engage. We are birthing a Kingdom movement of God. We have been called forth for such a time as this! It is not a time for slumber. We may feel physically drained and tired, and in those moments we need to call out the spirit of slumber. We need to take authority over it, posture ourselves to receive more grace, pray in the Spirit, and physically get up and move around while we pray. We say to ourselves and the Bride, ‘Wake up!’ We cry out, ‘Revival, come forth! Awakening, come forth! Reformation, come forth!’ Above all else,we will remember to breathe and allow Your life-giving Spirit to carry us as we carry and bring forth Your vision. What a privilege we have to co-labor with You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Today’s decree:

“We call forth revival, awakening, and reformation until it is here in its FULLNESS!”

There is an Opioid Crisis in America

“From time to time, the Lord highlights situations in our nation that require concerted prayer in order to effect a breakthrough. There are things happening that are destroying our nation from within. One of the things that the Lord is highlighting, both in the news and through the prophets, is that there is an opioid epidemic in America. In fact, just earlier this month, Attorney General William Barr addressed this crisis in New Orleans.

“This opioid epidemic is affecting people of all races, places, and walks of life, and there are no signs of this tragedy diminishing. It is stealing lives, to say nothing about stealing finances and the very health they were meant to help with. We must cry out to God for the healing of America!

“‘In the late 1990s, pharmaceutical companies reassured the medical community that patients would not become addicted to opioid pain relievers, and healthcare providers began to prescribe them at greater rates.’1 By 2017, Health and Human Services (HHS) declared the opioid epidemic to be a public health emergency. Today, an average of 130 Americans die daily from an opioid overdose.2” (Cindy Jacobs) 

“And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” (James 5:15-16; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray for wisdom and knowledge for America regarding prescription drugs.
  • Pray for healing of this public health emergency.
  • Pray that God will provide a solution to this epidemic.
  • Pray that the pharmaceutical companies and the doctors responsible for this epidemic be held accountable.
  • Declare, “For we do not have a high priest who is incapable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are, yet he did not sin.” (Hebrews 4:15; NET Bible)

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, You are the One that gives wisdom. From Your mouth come knowledge and understanding. Doctors and pharmacists thought they knew the best way to use these powerful drugs, but things have gotten way out of control. We have a staggering epidemic of addiction to these pain-killing drugs. It is a societal crisis. If we would simply ask You, we would have answers, but we have leaned on our own knowledge and understanding and now we have a mess. Heal us Lord. Deliver us. We need mass healing for this public emergency. Take hold of our hand and help us. Let us not fear, but know You are faithful to deliver when we ask You for help. Father, bring pharmaceutical companies and doctors into accountability for their casual response to this crisis. We look to You, instead, for we do not have a high priest who is incapable of empathizing with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are, yet He did not sin. Save our nation from this tremendous challenge, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Heal us, Lord, and we will be healed! Save us and we will be saved!

The Word of the Lord is Going to Transform a Generation of Americans

If we, as the Caleb generation, don’t take out our giants, the next generation can’t conquer their giants. The opposite is also true. The young folks that are shooting each other in the streets are shooting each other in the streets because the generation before them allowed it to happen. The giants are ruling, because we allowed the giants to rule. God is more interested in saving this generation than in judging them. 

God is about to do something in America. He’s about to raise up a generation that IS “debir” (ones where the Presence of God dwells). They will carry a deep intimacy with God. They will be filled with His Presence and His Word. They will be a giant-killing generation. They will return the Word of the Lord to the nation. The Word of the Lord is going to return to government. It’s going to return to the schools. It’s going to return to the churches. It’s going to return to the streets. And when the Word of the Lord comes, it changes everything!

The Word of the Lord breaks through. The Word of the Lord is salt. The Word of the Lord is a fire. The Word of the Lord is transforming. The Word of the Lord is creative. The Word of the Lord delivers and heals. It resurrects! The Word of the Lord is returning! 

“Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation. Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life.” (Philippians 2:14-16a; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Rededicate yourself to spend time in God’s Word daily. 
  • Repent if you have been complacent about taking the giants out in your territory. If you have not known to do this, ask the Lord for instruction. It’s not too late! Here and here are some good resources for spiritual warfare.
  • Intercede for the next generation. Pray that they, first and foremost, find a place of salvation and intimacy with God. 
  • Ask the Lord to minister to the deepest needs of the young generation. Pray that they encounter a loving, but powerful God. Pray that they become hungry for His Word, then become salt and light for everyone around them.
  • Ask God to use these young firebrands to invade their cities and the culture with His transforming love, grace, salvation, and deliverance.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I desire to immerse myself in Your Word. Make me even more hungry for the truth in the Bible. There are things I want to learn about You. I want to know Your ways. I want to know how to take giants down in my generation and in my territory. I want to make it easier for the young to take their giants out. Also, if they have less warfare, they can focus on intimacy with You, which is the most important thing! Draw them to Yourself. Make them hungry for Your Word. Fill them with Holy Spirit. Make them like David, men and women after Your own heart. Grace them to carry Your Word and Your Presence into the darkest places in their neighborhoods, cities, and in this culture. They can only handle it if You fill them completely! Give them holiness and a Holy boldness to witness. Make them creative, transforming, healing, and delivering ministers of Your Good News, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

A generation filled with the Word and the Presence of God is rising up, and our nation will be saved!

Turning Cities of Death Into Cities of Life

When Caleb re-took Kiriath-Arba and renamed it Hebron, he was restoring the city to its destiny. Satan always comes to distort or pervert God’s purpose. So, this city of Hebron, pictures covenant—friendship with God. Satan came and said, “I’m going to make it a stronghold of division, of idolatry, of death, corruption, evil, control, and fear.” Caleb transformed that city back into covenantal friendship with God. 

I believe God so wants to transform Chicago that it becomes not just a business hub, but is restored as a spiritual hub. People from all over the world will once again go there to seek the Lord. There will be something there again that people can tap into. Death won’t rule Chicago. Life will rule Chicago. God will even redeem gangs and gang members. He will rule over the inner cities in America and bring revival to places of great darkness! He will even transform the governments of these cities. 

Cities like Chicago will become cities that people run to, instead of somewhere they want to run from. People will find refuge and protection. These cities of great darkness will begin to paint a picture of the Lord, Himself.  

“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis. Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.” (Matthew 11:28-30; TPT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Can cities be so transformed by God through the prayers of the saints, that they completely turn around and become cities of refuge? Can they become cities people run to instead of from?
  • Can neighborhoods of death become strongholds of life and safety and salvation?
  • Call for Life to rule in Chicago. Call forth Life into other cities the Lord lays on your heart where death is the current stronghold.
  • Pray Matthew 11:28-30 over Chicago any darkness-infested cities near you.
  • Call for gang members to repent and turn to God. They are the hardest of the hard, but they are not too hard for God.
  • Say, “Revival is coming to America’s inner cities!”
  • Intercede for government structures in major cities to be transformed.

A prayer you can pray:

Oh God! Father! Come to Chicago and our nation’s other dark, demon-infested cities. Get Your Church praying like never before, Holy Spirit. Get the Saints up and praying until the darkness abates and the cities show forth the Light and Life of Christ. There are cities, even neighborhoods, in this country where darkness causes people to want to run away. Turn them completely around until people are running to them to find You, to find life and peace and refreshing and rest. That seems impossible, but nothing is impossible for You and Your praying Church. We pray that specifically for Chicago. It is a model city of darkness. Turn it into a model city of Life! We say what Jesus is saying to the people of Chicago and other dark cities, “Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to Jesus. He is extending to you an invitation, ‘I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis. Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.’” Wow, who can resist that invitation? Not even gang members will resist it. They will turn to Christ en masse. They will lead so many others to Jesus, because of their testimonies. Revival is coming to America’s inner cities! Residents will be transformed and governments will be transformed! In the mighty, transforming Name of Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Lord is going to flip our country’s darkest cities into cities of light and life and peace and safety!

Take Authority, Then Take Down the Giants

Before Caleb went to fight the giants in the land, Joshua gave him a city. Moses had given it to Joshua. Here’s what I want you to see. God does not wait until the giant is defeated before He announces the transfer of ownership for that city. Joshua said to Caleb, “I have full authority to give you this city. I don’t care how many giants are up there. I’m announcing today, ‘It’s your city!’”

Most of the Church does not think this way. Most of the Church waits until all the demons and all the strongholds are gone before they start acting like they own it. But, God says, “You have to act on it now. You have to believe Me now. You have to call what’s yours now. Then, you can go kick out the giants! So, I say over Chicago, for example, that the stronghold has been uprooted. It has been torn down. This city belongs to the Lord! His people are successful and victorious in battle.

“So Joshua blessed Caleb, son of Jephunneh, and gave Hebron to him as his portion of land. Hebron still belongs to the descendants of Caleb, son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, because he wholeheartedly followed the Lord, the God of Israel. (Previously Hebron had been called Kiriath-Arba. It had been named after Arba, a great hero of the descendants of Anak.)” (Joshua 4:13-15; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Say, “Lord, we are going to call what is not, as if it is!”
  • Declare, “The Lord has given us this city! We receive it as our inheritance from Him! We call it a beautiful and righteous city. We call God’s people here successful and victorious in battle. We say it is ours.”
  • Proclaim, “We are going to get the giants out, no matter how many there are or how strong they are. If He gave this city to us, no matter how bad it is, He will show us how to clean it up and cause it to glorify Him.” 

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we are going to call what is not, as if it is! We take hold of the gift of faith, which You are giving us. We believe You have given us this city! We receive it as our inheritance! We call it a beautiful city. It is a righteous city. We say that it is filled with revival and awakening. We see the great harvest of souls happening here. We call Your Church here successful and victorious in battle. We say that this city is ours. We declare that we are going to get all the giants out, no matter how many there are or how strong they are. The giants are no match for Your people filled with faith and the Word of the Lord. You have given this city to us, so no matter how bad it is, You will show us how to clean it up and cause it to glorify Your beautiful Son, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

This city (name it) belongs to the Lord!

A Heart Like Caleb’s

It takes a “Caleb heart” to capture strongholds. He was a man of faith that the Bible says followed the Lord fully. He cared about the reputation of the Lord and about covenant. He cared about what God had done in previous generations. He cared more about these things than his own well-being. Caleb said, “I will not rest until I take that city.” What God is looking for is a remnant of Believers with the heart of Caleb. They will care more about the cause of Christ and the destiny of their cities and nation than their own reputations, their own churches, and their own ministries. God wants someone that will say, “I will take this city!” God will liberate it when they pray. 

Do not wait for a majority of Believers to engage with you. You don’t need the majority of the Church to liberate your city from the strongholds keeping it in bondage. The majority of the Church will benefit. They are going to get to eat of the fruit of the land. They are going to take part in the harvest. It will benefit whole regions, but it will not be a majority that takes out the giants. God doesn’t need a majority.   

“Today I appoint you to stand up against nations and kingdoms. Some you must uproot and tear down, destroy and overthrow. Others you must build up and plant.” (Jeremiah 1:10; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Say, “We are a Caleb company! We are conquerors, who are willing and more than able to take the land!”
  • Declare, “This is the year to tear down, dismantle and pull down every stronghold of the enemy in our land.”
  • Tell the Lord, “We want this city (name your city). We will partner with those you show us, but we don’t need a large company. We don’t need all the pastors in unity. We just need faith-filled Believers.”
  • Decide to seek embrace the Word of the Lord more seriously for the rest of this year. Read the Bible. Pray in passages of scripture. Ask the Lord for scriptures from the Word of God to use as a sword to bring the strongholds down!
  • Adore the Lamb. Take communion, if you have elements available.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we stand before You now. We say, “We are a Caleb company. We are willing to take the land. We are well able to take the land. We are more than conquerers. We overwhelmingly conquer.” We echo Your words, “This is a year to tear down, to dismantle, to pull down.” We are going to exalt who You are. We are going to take back the city and make it a place of covenantal friendship. We are going to seek the Word of the Lord. We are going to seek the fire of God. We are going to see miracles come to this region. We are going to see revival come to this nation, in Jesus’ name, amen. We agree that there are enough of us. There are more than enough. There are more than enough to take out the strongholds that are in this area. We rise up in faith. We won’t look at the numbers. We won’t consider how long the strongholds have existed. We’re not going to look at how deeply they are entrenched. We are going to look at You. We are going to look at the blood of the Lamb. We are going to look at Your Name, Jesus. 

Today’s decree:

Filled with faith and with our eyes fixed on Jesus, we will return our cities to places of covenantal friendship with God.

Caleb and the Giants

There is a very significant city in Israel, named Hebron. It is one of the most important cities in the promised land. Many of the Patriarchs in Israeli history are buried there. Abraham and Sarah are buried there. The word, “Hebron” means “covenantal friendship”. Between the time of Abraham and Joshua, the greatest giant in all the land had captured Hebron. He wanted Hebron, because it was the highest city in all the land. So, symbolically, it represented the highest place of authority. He conquered the city and renamed it after himself—Kiriath Arbah, which means “the city of Arbah”. 

Listen carefully. When you give place to the underworld, they can come to the upper world. They will ascend to the high place of authority in that place. 

Caleb went into the land as one of the 12 spies that Joshua sent into the Promised Land. He was filled with righteous indignation. He looked up to the place that used to be Hebron, but which was now ruled by the greatest giant. That was the place that once represented covenant friendship with God. He looked at it and said, “I want that city right there. I want to take that land and I’m willing to take down the biggest giant!” Caleb did capture that city, and defeated Arbah and his three sons. 

“Now give me this hill country that the Lord promised me that day. You yourself heard then that the Anakites were there and their cities were large and fortified, but, with the Lord helping me, I will drive them out just as he said.” (Joshua 14:12; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare, “Lord, give me (name your city, school, neighborhood, or other giant-controlled place.)”
  • Say, “I am aware that there are giants entrenched in the land, but with You helping me, I will drive them out, just as You show me how to.”
  • Bring any sense of fear, inadequacy, or insecurity to Him, so He can show you who you are, and how He will fight for you and through you to defeat the giants in your territory. 
  • Decree, “I want this city right here. I want to take this land and I’m willing to take down the biggest giant, so this place can glorify the Lord Jesus!” 

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, Caleb knew the history of the place He was standing in front of. He knew how the enemy had hated it being a place that honored You, so giants moved in. The good news is that Caleb decided it really was ground that belonged to the Lord and he would take it back! Give me my (place where giants are that you are claiming. This can be a city, school, neighborhood or other place.) I see the giants there and I see the effect they are having on this place. They have turned it from a place that could glorify God into an unholy, even destructive place. Give me the faith of Caleb, so I can remove the giants from the land. Show me who I am and show me how You see me, so any insecurity or fear will fall away. Show me what You wanted for this place. Show me what You intend for this place. What is Your dream or vision? I want to see this place glorify You, Jesus. Let’s go get those giants out of there! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We are a Caleb company and we will remove the giants and take back the nation for the Glory of God!

Taking Out the Giants

Chuck and I agree that the cities with the strongest strongholds in America are Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Detroit. We believe Chicago is number 1. That is not a negative reflection on Believers in these cities or that the Church there has failed. It means that the enemy sees what God is planning to do in these places and is working hard to prevent it. He has, therefore, set up strongholds there. There has to be a reason, for example, that Chicago has become the greatest stronghold of death in the nation. 

God has recently taken me back to the story of Caleb and his victory over the giants in Canaan. Have you ever heard of Sheshai, Ahiman, and Talmai? How about Arbah? The Old Testament tells us that Arbah was the greatest of all the giants. He was the father of the race of the giants. He had three sons: Sheshai, Ahiman, and Talmai, who were also giants. We don’t know who these three were other than that. They were not that big of a deal to God. Even though they were giants that ruled the land, they were not that powerful. Caleb had no problem taking out those giants. 

The size of the giants are not the issue. How long the giants have ruled is not the issue. The only issue is, “Will the people of God obey Him and respond in faith to what God says?” When we do, it is not that hard to take out giants. God can liberate our cities! The giants are no match for HIm!  

“They advanced against the Canaanites living in Hebron (formerly called Kiriath Arba) and defeated Sheshai, Ahiman and Talmai.” (Judges 1:10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read Joshua 14:6-15 where Caleb asks Joshua to give him the mountain where Kiriath-Arbah was, so he can drive the giants out of the land God was giving Israel. Let your faith rise up.
  • Caleb was easily successful, because he “wholly followed the Lord.” Recommit yourself to be fully obedient to the Lord.
  • Choose one of these cities, look up their most current needs, and intercede for them, calling forth the opposite of what you see: Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Detroit. Call forth Life in place of death, for example.
  • Ask God to expose the giants in these key stronghold cities.
  • Declare that the giants rooted there, which are affecting the entire nation, will be uprooted and replaced with God’s Presence and plans.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, as I read about Caleb’s request and his faith to overcome the giants in the land, let my faith arise. Let me believe what Dutch is saying. I can route the giants in my territory, whether that’s my neighborhood, my city or my nation. I must simply follow You completely. I love You, Lord. I am Yours and You are mine. Let me hear Your voice and follow your instructions. Let faith rise up in me and overcome every giant. This is not impossible for You. You simply want a clean and willing vessel to use. Clean me up. Use me. Show me how to pray over Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and/or Detroit. The prophets say spiritual strongmen are ruling from these places. I certainly see evidence of that! Expose the giants in these places. Set our nation free! I believe Your Church can pray and remove them, if we are careful to humbly pray Your way. We declare that the giants rooted in these cities will be uprooted and replaced with Your plans and with Your Presence. How we will worship You! Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Through our obedience to the Lord’s plans, we will take out the giants in our land!

Contending From and Not For

“A couple of years ago, as we were praying in the State Capital Building in Austin, Texas, the Lord released a powerful revelation to us.  He declared that we were no longer contending for this place. We were now, in Him, contending from the capital.  This was a major shift, as the Lord was anointing us for authoritative and declaratory prayers that would change the atmosphere of our capital, our capital city, our state and our nation.

“During a phone conversation with two of our state intercessory leaders, the Lord revealed another aspect. First, as we continue to move in this new position of contending from a place rather than contending for, we will see the force of evil intensify. This had been prophesied at our annual prayer network retreat. Evil will rise up to contend with us. This evil was demonstrated through the terrorist act of death through the El Paso shooting.

“Second, there is a clear, distinguishable line that is being drawn between what is right and wrong, just and unjust, and between life and death. The Lord kept speaking to us that we can’t have a spirit of compromise or of getting along for the sake of getting along. We can’t compromise with darkness, the antichrist spirit, Jezebel, Baal, or any other lifeless structure. 

“God’s government must and will, through us, penetrate and influence natural government. Remember, whether it’s Washington, D.C. or Austin, what is decided there is not the root, but the fruit. We must call forth the righteousness and justice that are seeded into the foundation of God’s throne.” (Tom Schlueter)*

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer*:

  •  Step into God’s presence and seek His face and heart.
  • You are seated with Him. Listen to what He is decreeing over your city, state and nation.
  • Fully receive your commission and anointing to now contend from Your position in Him.
  • Disarm and dismantle the structures that are rising up in contention against the work of God.
  • Decree that darkness, death, confusion, and that which is unjust will be stopped.
  • Recognize that failure is not an option.
  • As you dismantle the darkness, speak forth blessing, life, righteousness, hope, justice and grace in its place.

A prayer you can pray*:

Lord, the foundations of our states and nation are rooted into the foundation stones of Your throne. They are rooted in righteousness and justice.  I declare that we are built on the covenant promises of God. I declare Your Lordship over my city, my state, and my nation. I decree that Your life and light will penetrate every dark structure and expose every plot and scheme that is attempting to rise up in contention against the manifestations of Your kingdom and will. I recommit my life to You, Lord, and I will not fall prey to compromise.  I will not get along to get along. I will not negotiate with darkness, the antichrist spirit, Jezebel, Baal, or any other lifeless structure. I call forth the righteousness and justice that are seeded into the foundation of God’s throne. Let those seeds bear the true fruit of Your kingdom. Lord Jesus, thank You for this new mantle of authority.  Thank You that You have shifted me from “contending for” to “contending from.” I praise You and You alone. I open my ears to hear Your Word. And now let Your word go forth, as I decree it. Amen.

Today’s decree*:

I decree that Your life and light, Lord, will penetrate every dark structure and expose every plot and scheme that is attempting to rise up in contention against the manifestations of Your kingdom and will.

  Pray Today for Heartbeat Bills to Pass!

From Janet Porter, author of the original Ohio Heartbeat Bill:

“Just a quick note of update…The effort to keep hearts beating is going strong! Pastor Corey Shankleton, who helped us pass the Ohio Heartbeat Bill, has moved to Michigan and is leading their effort. I traveled with him throughout Michigan speaking to churches, pro-life groups, and houses of prayer (video here). God is moving! People were coming forward crying, saying ‘I have prayed for this day to come.’ The opportunity to end abortion for which we have prayed is HERE.  

“I’ll be testifying for the Tennessee Heartbeat Bill today. If both Michigan and Tennessee pass Heartbeat Laws, then EVERY state in the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals will have done so—sending a very strong message to the Supreme Court to take up and review our law and reexamine Roe v Wade.” (Janet Porter)    

“See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess.” (Deuteronomy 30:15-16; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Janet Porter started this journey nine years ago. Bless her for standing strong and tirelessly in this long battle.
  • The Heartbeat Bill states that abortion cannot occur when there is a detectable heartbeat. While we know that life begins at conception, this is a huge step forward that will stop 95% of abortions. “When the heartbeat is detected, the baby is protected.” Thank the Lord and pray that many states will adopt this pro-life legislation.
  • The Heartbeat Bill requires that doctors must test for a fetal heartbeat. Intercede for every Heartbeat Bill coming up. Begin with Tennessee and Michigan.
  • If there is a heartbeat, the woman must be informed. Declare that Planned Parenthood and similar organizations will not be able to withhold information any longer about a woman’s unborn child.
  • It requires protection of babies. Abortion cannot occur or a felony will be committed. Praise God for the ending of abortion in America!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we bless Janet Porter for her bold stand and tireless journey to see Heartbeat Bills passed in as many states as possible. Bless Ohio for taking the lead. We ask You to grace Janet and those working with her to continue to take this message from state to state, until as many as possible will pass this simple legislation. Even the unsaved are agreeing with the measurement that a baby should live if its heartbeat is detected. It crosses even political lines. When a heartbeat is detected, a baby is protected! Science says a heartbeat is the presence of life, so let the legislation pass! Let state after state after state pass this legislation. We especially pray for Tennessee, who is considering it this week, and Michigan, considering it soon. We say that women will no longer have information about their baby’s life withheld from them any longer! Let the truth be known! God, we praise You for the ending of abortion in America! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Heartbeat Bill will continue to be passed in state after state, right now in Tennessee and Michigan!
