Step 1 – The Process of Rediscovering the Ark – Part 1

It is an ark of presence and glory. When the blessing of the Lord is sought, rather than His presence and glory, it results in a loss of glory. You can’t seek first the blessing, the provision, and all the other Kingdom benefits. You will lose the very thing you are seeking. The Hebrews wanted the blessing of YHWH, but they didn’t care about His presence. It says in Chronicles that in all the days of Saul they never sought the ark. They didn’t care that the ark had been carried off by the Philistines to another part of the country. The Philistines sent it back to Israel and it dwelt in the house of Kiriath Jearim for 20 years. 20 years!

“Then we’ll bring back our God’s ark, which we ignored while Saul was king.” (1 Chronicles 13:3; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord for Who He is. Let all of your needs go out of your mind and let your worship be all about Him. If this is hard, ask Him why and let Him tell you. You may have an area of your heart that needs healed. The enemy may have made you feel rejected by Him or disappointed that He did not come through for you in a way you expected.
  • Tell Him, “I just want You, Jesus.” When you prioritize Him and His presence and glory, He will add all the rest.
  • Worship Him again. Get lost in His presence and glory.

A prayer you can pray:

I worship You, Lord. I come to You and ask that You, just You, be my focus now. (If this is hard, ask Him why and let Him tell you. You may have an area of your heart that needs healed. The enemy may have made you feel rejected by Him or disappointed that He did not come through for you in a way you expected.) Jesus, I just want You! I want to worship You in spirit and truth, just me and You. I long for Your presence. I want to hang out in Your glory. I don’t want to be like the Israelites who ignored the ark of Your presence! I will worship You even more. (Worship Him.)

Today’s decree:

I decree that we will bring back the ark of His Presence to our cities and to America.

It’s Time for the Gate of the Glory of the Lord

I feel that we, as a nation, are in a season where we are being prepared for the return of His Glory. I think every region of the country needs to determine if they want to be a part of that. Over the next few days, I’m going to give you some principles to go through the gate and to recognize and experience the weight of His glory. When God’s glory comes, it enables us to recognize who He really is. When we ask for glory, we’re not asking for a cloud or bright lights or sensationalism. We are saying, “Bring Your weighty presence, Your weighty authority, and come and be recognized in our midst.”

“But David feared the LORD that day, and asked, ‘How can the Ark of God come to me?'” (2 Samuel 6:9; ISV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Let your spirit man get excited and the fear of the Lord descend upon you at the promise that God’s glory is about to be poured out over America, and we will see Him as He really is.
  • Invite Him to let your city be a place He does this! Say, “Bring Your weighty presence, Your weighty authority, and come and be recognized in our midst.”
  • Ask Him to pour His glory out on Washington, D.C. Say, “The wait is over and the glory is returning to America!”
  • Declare that ordinary, faithful, prophets are coming out of the caves and will take their places to usher in the Presence of His Glory all over the land!

A prayer you can pray:

God, you once told David, “Yes, David, you can have the ark back. You can have My presence back in the capital, if you’ll do it My way. I want to be the center. I want to be with My people.” In this nation, we’ve been waiting. Many of us have said, many times, “How long, Lord? When?” God, You are saying You are going to bring your prophets out of the caves they have been dwelling in and you are going to restore Your glory to the nation. You are saying to those who have been faithful in the cave and who did not abdicate their position before the gates, and to those who wanted the ark of His Presence, but just couldn’t see how to go get it, “The wait is over and the glory is returning to America!” Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that God’s weighty and magnificent Glory is about to be seen all over this land!

The Lord Will Call to the Remnant

There is Kingdom work to be done. The Lord is stirring something in the hearts of His people. He is stirring us to love and good works. It may only be a remnant He is stirring, but if the remnant responds and goes through the doors He is opening, then watch. Watch and see that others’ faith will be stirred and they will be motivated by what they are seeing the remnant accomplish. They will want His power, too. They will want to see God move through their prayers and action on behalf of their cities and nation.

“Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest, and the whole remnant of the people obeyed the voice of the Lord their God and the message of the prophet Haggai, because the Lord their God had sent him. And the people feared the Lord.” (Haggai 1:12; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede for weariness and disappointment from the last season to break off the Church.
  • Ask God to stir us up to love and good works and faith for the future.
  • Cry out for a remembrance to come upon us of all God said He would do through us for our cities and nation.
  • Pray that the remnant will move out and that the rest of the Church will want the Kingdom expressions they are walking in!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, stir up the remnant, as You say in Haggai. Stir up the call that you have extended – not the call of the past, but the destiny of the future. Things that You will call to remembrance will be decreed now and activated for movement. Every place You’ve been blocked from going in, You’ll go in. Lord, we say a new apostolic rule has come into our cities and nation. It will be manifested in a Kingdom way. I take authority now and I say to the structure that has been running and chasing and attempting, “You no longer have rule here.” In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that if we will let the Holy Spirit stir up our faith, if we will break free of the past and obey His voice now, doors to His promises for our cities and nation will open before us now!

Getting Unlocked

“It was a woman who first recognized Yeshua coming out of the tomb – Mary Magdalene. But, she had been delivered. She ran back to where all the disciples were up in the upper room. They were locked up in fear. That’s what the Bible says. See, one season of trauma can try to get you to lock away your future. You don’t want to do that! The disciples were locked up. They didn’t know how to go forward, and they knew what they’d seen. Mary comes in and says, ‘But, He’s alive. Remember what He prophesied.’ They didn’t believe her. Then, He comes through the door.” (Chuck Pierce)1

“When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons. She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping. When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it.” (Mark 16: 9-11; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • In this year of the door, of the gate, He has ways to come in. Stop trying to figure things out on your own and fix your eyes on Christ!
  • Ask Him to deliver you of the fear of your past. It won’t stop Him, but it will stop you. Get unlocked.
  • Ask Him to heal the effects of persecution and rejection you suffered in the last season.
  • Realize, as you are healed, that He is moving you from being one who comes to be taught to one who is sent.
  • Go prayer-walk or prayer-drive for your city’s freedom today. Declare that people in your community are going to get unlocked from fear and rejection, persecution and addiction.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, forgive me for continuing to try to figure out how you are going to straighten out my emotions and my life. Deliver me from fear! Fear keeps me from moving forward! Heal my heart. I don’t want the effects of rejection and persecution from the last season to keep me from being who You created me to be. I always want to have a teachable spirit, but I want to move beyond getting fed and start to minister effectively to those around me. Show me the needs and opportunities, as I walk and drive around my city today. Use the unlocked me to set my city’s captives free, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Church will be delivered and healed by Jesus, so we can be deliverers and healers to others in our nation.

Don’t Run Those Angels Off!

“Go through the Word of God and look for where there are angels at gates. We are in a season of angelic interaction. We’ve come up to the fate and we have to have angels helping us. The Lord has promised angels at specific times in the Bible. He promised angels to take the Israelites through and into the Promised Land in Exodus 23. God essentially told them to not run that angel off. But, the angel didn’t show up until 40 years later when Joshua was getting ready to go up against Jericho. The angel wasn’t needed until then. This year we need angelic help at our gates.” (Chuck Pierce)1

“See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared. Pay attention to him and listen to what he says. Do not rebel against him; he will not forgive your rebellion, since my Name is in him. If you listen carefully to what he says and do all that I say, I will be an enemy to your enemies and will oppose those who oppose you. My angel will go ahead of you and bring you into the land of the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hivites and Jebusites, and I will wipe them out.” (Exodus 23:20-23; NIV)

“The angel answered him, ‘I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and I was sent to speak to you and to bring you this good news.’” (Luke 1:19; NET Bible)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read Exodus 23: 20-23 and Luke 1:19 above. Meditate on these scriptures for a few minutes and let revelation go deep in you.
  • Activate angelic help for the nation through your intercession.
  • Listen for angelic help – some are the Messengers of God.
  • Ask God to send angels to help us maneuver through what is ahead.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, deepen my understanding of angels, as I read Exodus 23:20-23 and Luke 1:19. The prophets are saying that this nation needs angelic assistance right now. We are a clear gate in history and the enemy is fighting to keep us from passing through it into a promised season. I ask for angels to be released to help us. Let us position ourselves to hear what they are saying to us. Help us understand how they will help us move forward in revelation and ministry, changing America’s future. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that God is sending an angel ahead of us to guard us and bring us through the gates we are facing. Angels will bring us into the season in the United States that He has prepared for us. I decree that we will pay attention to them and listen to what they say!

Off With the Old and On With the New!

“This is a year to have our identity seen in a new way. I’m not the same as I was last year. There’s a new mantle that comes with a new season. And, the mantle you get is part of your identity for your future. In Zechariah 3, it says that you have to remove the iniquities from the past or the enemy will find those iniquities that weren’t reconciled. I believe we are in the process of doing that now.” (Chuck Pierce)1

“The angel of the Lord gave this charge to Joshua: This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘If you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here.’’” (Zechariah 3:6; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Has anyone noticed how iniquities are getting exposed all over the place? Rejoice!
  • Any iniquities in your family line? Any sexual addictions, gambling, alcohol, or drugs? Any financial fraud, gaming the system, or rebellion against authority? Any rejection of our loving God? Identificationally repent and determine to walk in a new way, never going back!
  • See Him drop a new mantle on you – a mantle of freedom, a mantle of deliverance, a mantle of justice, a mantle of love. Let Him mantle you in the outfit you need to have to move forward into your destiny.
  • In that same area (or areas), identificationally repent for those iniquities in America. Let a desperation come to ask God for a move of His Holy Spirit that saves and cleans up multitudes of souls. Can you imagine the different place our nation would be in overnight if this happened?

A prayer you can pray:

God, thank you for the exposure of sin and iniquity in our lives and in the lives of others across the nation. Only when something is brought into the light, where it can be seen, can it be dealt with. Shine your light on my life and my family lineage. I may wince, but do it anyway. I want to be free and I want my family free! I repent for (name the thing(s) He shows you.) I receive the mantle of (say what you see Him give you.) In the authority You have given me, I ask You to free the United States from (name the area you have received freedom from. You have authority in this area now.) God, deliver! God, set free! God, loose a harvest of reclaimed and remantled souls that love You and want what You want for this land. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree the Word of God in Zechariah 3:6, “If we will walk in obedience to the Lord and keep His requirements, then we will govern His house and have charge of His courts.”

Open Doors and Open Heaven This Year

“Look at the last three years of your life. This year is a connecting portal. In 2015-2016, you staked a claim on your future and made new decrees for your future. 2016-2017 is linked with gaining new authority to get the promise that you staked a claim on. This year, you put them together and a portal opens for you to go into a manifestation that you’ve never seen before. We’re awakening to how to hear prophetically in time. Something is going to happen in this decade that has never happened before. There’s a wall and a fence that has been blocking us. Now, this year, there’s life that is coming to the wall or place that has blocked us.” (Chuck Pierce)1

“Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.” (Psalm 24:7; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Prophetic voices are starting to line up and speak of this being the season of open doors and the ushering in of God’s Presence. Call it in! Say you want Him!
  • Look back over the last three years. Can you see the hand of God at work, even in the tough times? Worship Him!
  • What’s happening nationally is mimicking what has been happening personally. We’re in the same spiritual climate and timeline of heaven. Intercede for the nation to break through the walls that have blocked us from being the nation God desires.
  • Intercede for the Church to realize the need to partner with God to shift this nation.

A prayer you can pray:

God, I want You! I want You and I want Your Presence! I love to just soak You in and hang out with You and hear You, Holy One. I know I can do nothing apart from You. As I look back over the last three years of my life, I remember how You were there for me through hard times and blessed times. You are so faithful and worthy of my worship. (Worship Him for a few minutes.) The blocks in my way and the breakthroughs I have seen are showing up nationally, as well. I ask You to intervene and keep exposing until the walls fall down and the captives are free. Let evangelism rise up. I call governmental situations into order. I call for the Ekklesia to realize the prophetic season and press in until the nation lines up with Your will. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the walls and fences that have blocked me, the Church, and this nation from moving fully into God’s Will are moving out of the way, as we pray.

Going Through a New Door

“God is doing new things everywhere. This new year of the door is overlapping with the year of the sword through the end of December. This part of the year is linked with contention, authority, and the Word of God coming down. The enemy has tried, but has not been able, to take us captive. We are breaking free of our captivity. In the last year from October 2016 to late September 2017, we received the sword in a warfare season. But, things have shifted. Now, we have got this sword up and we are coming to a new gate. We have been set free from captivity and are being clothed with a new authority to go up and go through a new gate ahead.” (Chuck Pierce)1

“After these things I saw a door standing open in heaven. I heard the first voice like a trumpet speaking to me. It said, ‘Come up here, and I will show you what must happen after this.’” (Revelation 4:1; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • The Fall of the year is a spiritual shifting of seasons, even as it is a natural change of seasons. Ask God for the revelation Chuck is speaking of prophetically.
  • Get up and take that spiritual sword in your hand. Point it at the enemy. Now, proclaim that you are a captive set free and, with authority, raise the sword. You will not put it away, but you are now on the offensive, not the defensive!
  • Again, intercede for the nation in that area the Lord gave you yesterday to set our nation free! Is it the salvation of the lost, the ending of abortion, exposing human trafficking, or justice for a racial group or the poor? Is it financial stability, job creation/mentoring, or healing of the sick, dying and mentally ill? Whatever it is, be confident that you have been prepared by the Lord to set the captives free!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I love the Fall and the changing of the natural seasons. Give me revelation of the changing of the spiritual season, as well. I thank you for Chuck Pierce and other prophets who help us hear, see, and navigate our way forward from season to season – victory to victory! I will physically move the spiritual sword in my hand from a defensive position to a confident one, where I know You have settled some things! Give me even more authority and put Your Word in my heart. I want to partner with You to set America free from that area You have given me, which has held this nation in captivity. In the mighty Name of Jesus, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Lord is showing the set-free Ekklesia what must happen next in America. He is showing us how to walk in new levels of authority, using the Word of God to set the captives free in the United States!

The Breaking of Captivity

“The season we’re in that will take us to 2019 is the season of 70 (Ayin) according to the Hebrew calendar. We just entered into the Hebrew year 5778.  Every year we are coming to a new crossroad and we’re having to choose which way we’re going to go. All 70’s are linked with the breaking of captivity. Whatever has been in your bloodline can be broken in this season. Set your face like a flint and say, ‘I’m not going into the next phase of my life and ministry without the old structures being broken.’ Ayin also means the eye of God is watching and seeing how we react – how we respond by faith.” (Chuck Pierce)1

“I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see.” (Revelation 3:18; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Bring yourself before the Lord and let Him show you any areas of captivity in your life or bloodline that need to be dealt with.
  • Let Him heal you, deliver you, and set you on a course of change.
  • Now, let Him show you an area or two of the nation where captivity needs broken. This will be a prayer and action assignment for you this year.
  • Ask Him for scripture, and prayer and action points to begin. Write them down in a journal that you will revisit this time next year.
  • Thank God with worship and praise for the recent exposure of human trafficking rings across the U.S. The captives are literally being set free in America!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I want to be free of those things that still hold me captive. Let this be the year. Show me what I do not know about myself. Show me any bloodline issues that precede me, but still hold me. I want myself and my children and children’s children to be free of _________. I receive Your love and direction. I believe Jesus came to set the captives free! Show me that area of the nation that You have destined me to help bring freedom to. Give me the Word to use as a sword. Show me active steps I can take to liberate others held captive. Thank you for the recent and ongoing exposure of the sex trafficking of children. Completely end human trafficking in America, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree Jesus is setting the captives free in the U.S.A.!

Praying His Prayers

“We have emphasized faith to such an extreme that without much thought (seeking) we begin to make our faith statements and decrees and declarations and blowing our shofars and waving our banners. Rarely do we stop to ask God how He views what is happening and what He would have us to do or to pray. Unfortunately, we now have such a ‘conditioned response’ when a call for prayer comes forth, that we pray our prayer. Too often, we fail to pray HIS prayer. It can take patient waiting upon the Lord for revelation and discernment to come. Often, it involves searching the scriptures with Holy Spirit leading us and guiding us in what we should pray or, in some instances, what we should do. There is such an intimacy in seeking the Lord in this way. The whole process develops our faith and renews our minds, as we begin to see some patterns of heaven. We can know God and His ways more than ever before. I do think that many of us have neglected this handiwork of God deep within our soul.” (Delbra Pratt)1

“Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.” (Psalm 42:7; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Repent for the times you have done things your own way, without seeking Him.
  • Sit quietly with Him for a bit today. Don’t talk. Just be.
  • Ask Him if there is anything He would like you to pray about for America today.
  • Intercede or declare what He says. He may direct you to scripture, as well.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, forgive me for just jumping in and starting to pray and act without Your direction. I love You and love relationships are based on intimacy. I want to just sit here in silence with You for a while today. If there’s anything You want me to know about, anything You want to show me or teach me, or anything You want me to pray, especially about this country, go ahead and tell me about it. (Intercede or declare or act on what He reveals to you.) Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Ekklesia will be known as those that seek the Lord for His heart and His prayer assignments for this nation.
