February 4 – Pray for Truth in Media

“Has secular media become such a part of our mental and spiritual landscape that we do not recognize the impact they are having on our nation? Are we afraid they’re powerful influence is too big to overcome? In 1 Samuel 17, we read how David was not afraid to confront giants when they were opposed to God and His people. Goliath’s greatest weapon was not so much his size or strength. In fact, King Saul and the Israelite army hadn’t gone near enough to test the giant’s military prowess. They were sitting on the hillside frightened, discouraged, and on the verge of defeat, simply because of Goliath’s BIG mouth! David had little, if any, experience on the battlefield, but he had developed some faith-filled strategies in the school of prayer and worship. He didn’t know much about Goliath, but he had become well acquainted with the LORD of hosts.  God’s servant confronted the taunting Philistine in the name of the LORD Almighty and with a declaration of truth. Then the shepherd boy slung a stone, striking Goliath in the forehead, causing him to fall face down on the ground. Although we are told the stone killed the Philistine, David didn’t stop halfway. He used the opposition’s sword to cut off his head, showing God’s authority over the mind. This was a giant faith builder that Goliath would never taunt God’s people or defy the Holy One of Israel ever again!”

“Life and death are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21; HCSB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask God to position His servants in media and empower them to faithfully walk in integrity and humility. Pray they will be filled with knowledge, wisdom and understanding that comes from God. Pray they will not use their words carelessly, but their tongues will bring forth life (Proverbs 11; 18:21; Romans 10:14, 15).
  • Pray that deception, lies and ungodly philosophies in our media will be exposed and not allowed to infiltrate and infect the church. Decree and declare that the light of Truth will dispel the darkness (Luke 8:17).
  • Thank God for placing His Spirit upon the leaders He has placed in the media and His Word on their tongue (2 Samuel 23:2–4).
  • Ask, believing that God-called media leaders will be bold, fearless, and unafraid to expose the truth about threats to our government. Pray they will be willing to refute every evil word spoken against Jesus followers and will be unashamed of the gospel (Jeremiah 1:10; Isaiah 54:17; Romans 1:16).
  • Pray that God will strategically position heralds of peace, who will bring good news and proclaim salvation to the nations (Isaiah 52:7).
  • Wait before the Lord for further direction from the Holy Spirit and remember to thank God for hearing and answering our prayers.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, media in this nation is spinning out of control. They see themselves as the mouthpiece of America and they are shouting loud what they want the American populace to believe. This has to stop! We come boldly to Your throne and ask that you would place and grant influence to Your people in media outlets. Give them wisdom to report the news and let their tongues speak forth life over the nation! Make them fully unashamed of the Gospel and free to proclaim in over the airwaves. Replace the fear and anger currently going forth with Your words of truth and peace. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is hearing and answering our prayers to bring Truth to media in America!

Feb. 3 – The Court’s Limitation of Power

The U.S. Supreme Court has become untethered from the Constitution and exercised authority that it does not have—like abolishing prayer, bible reading, and the display of the Ten Commandments in our schools.  The Court has legalized unlimited abortion, same-sex marriage, seizure of property for commercial use, and much, much more. The U.S. Supreme Court and our Federal District and Circuit Courts of Appeal are now packed with judges who believe in a living, breathing Constitution that can be interpreted so as to change with the times. As morals in culture change, so do the moral standards by which some Judges interpret the Constitution. If a judge believes strongly in an issue about which the Constitution does not speak, he can “discover penumbras” (i.e., shadows) in the Constitution or draw his authority from thin air. This has gone way too far for the American people and if it is not changed by our new President, by choosing judges to serve at every level who believe in judicial restraint, originalism and who believe, as did the aforementioned Justice Joseph Story and many others, that there is a higher law and a Higher Judge than themselves, our Republic, our experiment in self-rule, will be over (Is 40:8).

“For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; he will save us.” (Isaiah 33:22) “I will worship… and praise thy name for thy loving-kindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy Word above all thy name.” (Psalm 138:2)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask God to Move mightily to overhaul our judicial system. Even as many believe our new President is responding to the Spirit of God, he has gathered a great many believers around him who are ministering Christ constantly, may he and each member of our Supreme Court be moved by the Holy Spirit to draw near to Him who is our King.
  • May our President choose men and women who hold to the Constitution, originalism and Judicial restraint, but who also hold to our Creator, the Supreme Judge of the World, our Savior and only King. May they revere His word, which He has magnified above His Name.
  • May He choose Justices and Judges who are fully equipped, ready as stewards to be faithful to their oath and calling to the very end, rightly dividing the Words of the Constitution and the Word of God as it pertains to men, the law, and nations.
  • As God brings revival to our land may it come from the bottom up and the top down! May it break out in every sphere of culture and especially civil government which impacts every segment and subset of society. May the day come when we, like ancient Judah, come with fruits of repentance, as one man in solemn assembly to truly dedicate our nation back wholly to Him! (see Solemn Assembly – Richard Owen Roberts)

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we cry out to You to draw the members fo the Supreme Court to Yourself. Just as You have done this with our Executive Branch, we ask that You do it for our Judicial Branch, as well. We can believe for this miracle! We look to You and You alone to re-set our government and Court. We must have God-fearing leaders that uphold the Constitution and respect the Rule of Law. We look forward to a President and Congress that calls us to as a nation to holy convocations and seasons of prayer serious matters the Supreme Court will face. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; he will save us!

Feb. 2 – Pray that Court Rulings regarding Human Sexuality Will Honor God

The June 2o15 Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court ruling redefined marriage for every American state to include persons of the same sex, including 31 states whose constitutions included amendments to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman. Obergefell, like Roe, strikes at the core of Gods creative order. While the Bible and the U.S. Constitution promise life, Roe gave death to millions, enabling millions to believe that taking their baby’s life was authorized by the highest authority in the land. While Obergefell promises liberty, it has brought the entire nation into bondage – the homosexuals who believe their lifestyle has been authorized by the highest authority in the land, while those who reject the ruling because of their religious faith have been punished when they live out their faith by refusing to participate in a same-sex wedding or refusing to affirm same sex marriage when commanded to do so by a military commander or employer. The Court has elevated some by sanctifying their sexual practices, while making a pariah of those who maintain fidelity to their religious faith.

“In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.” (Rom 1:18-32; Jude 1:7).

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • May God send Christian revival which alone can cleanse the hearts and heal those damaged physically, mentally and spiritually by their Supreme Court-encouraged, self-destructive behaviors. Only God can transform those whose personalities have been altered by their involvement in dangerous behaviors. May He send such a revival!
  • May God guide our President, who has been ambiguous in his posture toward LGBT matters, into all Truth. May he appoint pro-biblical and traditional marriage justices to the Supreme Court and judges to our federal courts.
  • May God’s people be given faith to believe that the wrong decisions our courts have made and the problems they have created, can be reversed. Just as the horrific Dred Scott decision was reversed.
  • May Life, Marriage, and the God of Creation and His created order be yet again wholly respected by the vast majority of Americans and honored in American life and law!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we first ask You boldly to send forth a revival in this nation! Touch those who are confused, fearful and who have been wounded by the actions of our Supreme Court. The Court cannot fix their hearts. Only You can. Please grant our President wisdom and revelation on this, so that his nominees to the Court will make decisions on an historical and Constitutional basis, which pleases You. We pray that  the Court would be open to reversing past wrongful decisions, so that blessing can pour out in this nation. May Life and Marriage be wholly respected in America once again. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The heart of our nation will be turned from immorality to the Way of the Lord and we shall be a nation blessed by Him!

Feb. 1 – Pray that the Court will Rule in Favor of Pro-Life Policies

Over the past 44 years, Americans have “legally” taken the lives of nearly 60 million innocent unborn babies, without the due process of law guaranteed every American by the U.S. Constitution. Just as the U.S. Supreme Court erred horrifically in its 1857 Dred Scott Decision, declaring that “a negro, whose ancestors were imported into [the U.S.], and sold as slaves… whether enslaved or free, could not be an American citizen and therefore had no standing to sue in federal court,” so the 1973 Roe v. Wade,  the 1973 Doe v. Bolton, and the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey rulings, which were based upon utter distortion of the constitution to fit the politically correct thinking of the then majority of justices. The loss of each baby’s life, the guilt and damage to mothers who felt justified by the new “law,” to take their baby’s life, must be shared by all who have stood by idly, content to watch what has turned out to be an American massacre. Moreover, we have pushed this “American policy” on foreign lands, and required those who receive American aid to adapt similar policies. And while the Hyde Amendment prevented Federal Tax dollars from going to abortionists, we have funded Planned Parenthood at home and abroad for all these decades. These policies are being brought to an end by President Donald Trump.

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • May God move upon our Supreme Court and our Federal and State courts urgently to repent of and reverse the pro-abortion rulings past Courts have delivered.
  • May President Trump move quickly to appoint a solidly pro-life Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court and similarly lifetime pro-life judges to the Federal Courts.
  • May governors follow suit and appoint pro-life Justices to their State Supreme Courts and pro-life judges to the lower courts.
  • May God move upon the spirits of all Americans to reevaluate their views about abortion. May those who identify as pro-life multiply until American culture has become a culture of life and not death.
  • May President Trump and Congress work together quickly to defund Planned Parenthood and expand and make permanent the Hyde Amendment to prevent any expenditure of taxpayer dollars to fund abortions anywhere.
  • May God send us a Biblical multi-generational Revival that literally rebuilds our lives, repairs our families, restores a Biblical worldview to our culture, heals our land and with the sins of our past blotted out by the blood of Jesus, make us an influence for righteousness in the world until Christ returns!

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Lord, we thank You for a new Supreme Court nominee. We have hope for a shift toward life! We repent yet again and cry out for the reversal of pro-abortion rulings of the past. We ask that You would cause a full exposure of abortion practices in America. Pull the curtain all the way back, Lord! We ask that all taxpayer dollars be removed from pro-abortion centers and that funding be given, instead, to those women’s centers that promote and uphold Life! Forgive our national shedding of innocent blood and heal our land, dear Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will see the reversal of abortion practices in the United States during our lifetime.

Jan 31st – Pray our Courts will Defend Religious Liberty!

Tonight, President Trump is scheduled to announce his pick for the U.S. Supreme Court to fill Justice Anthony Scalia’s seat. The political fireworks have already begun in the U.S. Senate. Please keep this prayer target series to help you pray for a process that could take months. Your prayers are needed for this and future court appointments! A growing anti-religious freedom movement has materialized over the past 60 years. Our First Liberty seems to have been forgotten by too many Americans, among them state and federal government leaders, including the courts. Religious liberty has been under increasing assault from every direction. One gospel coalition analyzes it thus: 1) Religion has become personal and private, not public; 2) Freedom of religion has been reinterpreted to mean freedom of worship; 3) Fewer people claim to be religious today; and 4) The Sexual Revolution has advanced its own vision of sin and salvation.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1; KJV); “Stand and Pray!” (Ephesians 6:13-18; KJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for stirring Americans, and especially Christians, to push back in November’s Election against the tide of anti-faith government discrimination.
  • Pray for President Trump and his advisors and appointees, that they will work with Congress to pass laws that stop anti-religious discrimination and bleeding caused by the previous administration, state and local laws and ordinances.
  • Pray that the American people will be delivered from their biases favoring sexual activism over religious liberty and that anti-religious secularism will cease to be advanced in our public schools and colleges.
  • Ask God to spur activist judges to retire. May He guide the Trump Team to weigh Religious Liberty heavily in choosing every future SCOTUS Justice and federal judge.  In Jesus’ Name!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, tonight is a key night for our nation. President Trump will announce the nominee for the Supreme Court. We are trusting You that he has sought You and sought wise counsel, and has chosen the right person needed on our Court at this time. We long for a Justice that will not legislate from the bench! We pray that You would deliver Your people from religious discrimination; that first amendment rights would no longer be denied for Christians. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God will give us the Justice He has been preparing to take Justice Scalia’s place!

January 30th – Pres. Trump will also Appoint Many Federal Judges

Founding Father Alexander Hamilton wrote in the Federalist Papers, #78:

Whoever attentively considers the different departments of power must perceive, that, in a government in which they are separated from each other, the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in a capacity to annoy or injure them…the general liberty of the people can never be endangered from that quarter; I mean so long as the judiciary remains truly distinct from both the legislature and the Executive.

Yet, instead of exercising judicial restraint, over the past 60 years the U.S. Supreme Court has become a super-legislature and an oligarchical dictator that has departed from the Constitution, the Declaration, Natural and Revealed law, and lost any sense of obligation to the standards or authority of the Supreme Judge of the Universe.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness… Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees… that write grievousness which they have prescribed…” (Isaiah 5:20; 10:1; KJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that God will help President Trump and his advisors choose the very best of the best: truly God-fearing conservative, originalist justices and judges to populate the Supreme Court and all of our federal courts.
  • May God give Pres. Trump the maximum number of opportunities to appoint such justices and judges in the next four years and beyond!
  • May God’s people, who prayed and took action this Election, continue to aggressively pray to support the President, now under vicious attack from many quarters – his person, his family, his work and decision-making. May he grow in wisdom, and in relationship with the Lord. May he and his cabinet have great success and win the hearts of a hostile bureaucracy and many Americans who did not vote for him. May he be given health, longevity in life and in office and may he leave the legacy of a judiciary revived and restored by the Founders’ blueprint.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we pray again today that President Trump will present a God-fearing, conservative man or woman to serve in Justice Scalia’s place on the Court. We ask that he would have the opportunity to place more than one new justice over the next 4 years. Lord, we pray You would guard him with Your eye upon him. The media and many others are doing everything they can to misrepresent him and cause conflict over everything he does. We ask for grace in this nomination, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Supreme Court of the United States of America will be seated with those that refuse to call evil matters good, then try to make the Constitution follow their own human judgements.

January 29th – Pray for All Pres. Trump’s Court Appointees

When our Forefathers framed the Declaration and Constitution Sir William Blackstone’s legal commentaries were their preeminent legal reference. Blackstone wrote:

Upon these two foundations, the law of nature and the law of revelation, depend all human laws; that is to say, no human laws should be suffered to contradict … The revealed law… of infinitely more authenticity than that moral system… denominated [by] the natural law… The doctrines thus delivered we call the revealed or divine law, and they are to be found only in the Holy Scriptures. (Blackstone’s Commentaries, Part 2, The Nature of Laws in General).

Nations that obey God’s moral law are blessed (see Dt 28, all). Sadly our Supreme Court and many of our federal courts have departed from the Constitution and from protecting the God-given fundamental, self-evident rights our Founders declared governments were instituted to protect: equality (equal protection under law), life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Most SCOTUS appointees rise from our federal courts. President Trump has promised to appoint Supreme Court Justices who are “originalist jurists,” men and women who will interpret the Constitution the way our Founders intended and not according to their own feelings, or changing morals of modern culture.

 

“[Jehoshaphat] set judges in the land… and said… Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the Lord, who is with you in the judgment.  For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; he will save us.” (2 Chronicles 19:5-6; Isaiah 33:22)

 

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray daily that God will guide President Trump in all of his decisions but especially his possible appointment of 4 new lifetime Supreme Court Justices during his tenure in office (Pr 29:2)
  • May each appointee be not only knowledgeable and committed to the original meaning of the words of the Constitution, but also have a God-given moral compass that comes from the knowledge of God’s Word.
  • May God help our new President choose and the U.S. Senate to confirm jurists who will render righteous judgments and serve our nation with reverence for the Lord.
  • May they understand that their robes identify them as “ministers of God” who must give account to the Supreme Judge of all the World for their stewardship (Rom 1:4-13; 14:12; 1 Cor 4:2).
  • May each firmly understand that it is their responsibility not to define, but to protect the God-given, unalienable rights of Americans, including the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (which our Forefathers interpreted to mean rights to private property).

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we believe that You care more about those that will serve as judges in our land, even more than we do. You know the weight that their judgements carry and how that forms the moral climate of the nation. Lord, give us judges as at the first—men and women of strong moral character that will uphold the Constitution. Those that believe we have been given certain inalienable rights. Those that will not force the creation of laws that are not clearly outlined in the founding documents. Thank You, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Lord has given our President the opportunity to choose righteous Constitutional Justices for the Supreme Court!

Jan. 28 – The All-Important U.S. Supreme Court

It was made known this week that President Trump will decide on his first nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday, February 2. Time is of the essence to pray for President Trump to appoint and for the Senate to confirm the justice who will fill the seat vacated by Associate Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February, 2016. The Republican-led Senate has kept the post open until a new President could be elected and installed. With only eight justices on the court, predictable tie votes cannot resolve cases. When a tie occurs, the ruling of the last court of jurisdiction stands, usually a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. On the eve of his inauguration, President Trump told Washington leaders, “I think in my mind I know who it is. I think you’re going to be very, very excited!” Candidate Trump often promised, that, if elected, he would appoint a jurist in the “mold of Justice Scalia.” Over 30 years on the High Court Scalia became legendary in his role as the Court’s conservative anchor, known for his faith in God, his witty, brilliant legal mind, unbending fidelity and fearless defense of the Constitution and rule of law, and his commitment to family and freedom, especially religious freedom. A conservative Roman Catholic, Scalia was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1986. Exit polls showed that most Americans saw the economy as their most important concern, but  conservatives, especially Christians, said the Supreme Court was their most, or near most important concern that motivated them to vote for Mr. Trump. A Scalia-like Justice will bring the curt into the balance that existed before Scalia’s death. Since 1960, the U. S. Supreme Court has repeatedly overstepped its authority on issues. President Trump could appoint two or more justices in his first term and more in a second. Democrats promise to “fight tooth and nail” to prevent all Trump nominees. But, the GOP could invoke the “nuclear option” threatened by the Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid when Democrats were in control.

“The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.” (2 Sam 23:3; KJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray daily that President Trump will be led to appoint the justice of God’s choosing for this and all SCOTUS vacancies he is privileged to fill. God’s mercy, grace and guidance are our nation’s hope! (Ps 33:12)
  • May the Holy Spirit preside over what could become supra-contentious confirmation hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee! May those who seek to foment discord and division among Americans by hostile performances at the hearings be stilled by the Lord. Rather, may the statesmanlike behavior of our Senators serve to quell national unrest!
  • May there be no filibuster on the floor of the Senate, but, if there is, may God move 60 Senators to vote to invoke cloture, then the 51 Senators required to vote to secure final confirmation.
  • May the Senate and the American people be stirred by the character and qualifications of the appointee and may he (or she) win speedy confirmation (SCOTUS confirmations often take 3 months or more)

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we know that You have been preparing the perfect Justice for this day in America. We pray that You would make sure Your pick is found and presented. We ask that You would silence the voices of dissension and grant a grace for unity for this decision. May they be a man or woman of such strong character that there is little question that this will be a good Justice for the nation. Lord, we take authority over any filibuster and ask for the right number of Senators to act quickly to confirm Your person. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is going to give us a Justice that will uphold the U. S. Constitution and uphold life!

January 27 – Time to Build and Plant

There is an uprooting happening in the United States of America. It is spiritually important that ungodly roots that are plucked out are replaced with godly ones, quickly. When unrighteous strongholds are destroyed, the enemy will try to fill the void with plans that are even more ungodly. The first thing needed is clean up D.C. corruption and cronyism. President Trump has strong feelings on this and firm plans to put in place. The Church and the government need to start now to come up with viable options to abortion, should Planned Parenthood be defunded, such as increasing adoption and childcare strategies. Our inner cities need revitalized and we need programs to break generational poverty. President Trump has proposed the “Restoring Community Safety Act” to assist local law enforcement with additional training and resources to curtail recent trends of violence.  The planting of righteous laws and actions are on the near horizon.

“See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.” (Jeremiah 1:10; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord, for He has given this nation a chance to right itself.
  • Pray for President Trump, his Cabinet, their departments and our legislators to work together to tear down and uproot, but also for wise, workable plans to replace the programs they are removing!
  • Ask God to grant wisdom for the replacing of abortion. We believe this must be a combined effort between the government and the Church community. Life is a spiritual matter first and foremost and must consider the wholeness of families, as well as the lives of mothers and children. Medical care, financial support, support of the family and childcare are all components to be considered and planned for.
  • Intercede for the poverty in this nation and particularly that which is systemic and generational in our larger cities. Pray that President Trump’s business knowledge will be a key to developing means to increase substantial job growth and preparing workers for those jobs. Ask God for those inner city revitalization programs to spring forth!
  • Pray that God gives the Trump Administration workable strategies to provide for the safety of our cities. Law enforcement must be given training and support that can deal with crowd violence and anti-terrorism, while protecting the innocent.
  • Cry out for unity in this nation as these newly planted seeds begin to spring forth. Pray that citizens and the media would quickly realize the effect of these changes and that peace would begin to settle over the nation, as a result.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we worship You for the second chance You have given America! You have given us mercy in place of judgement. Grant our President and other governmental leaders the ability to work together to tear down ungodly laws. Give them heavenly downloads of ideas to replace what is being uprooted. Use Your Church to come up with ideas to meet needs outside of the governmental arena. We thank You for the prosperity that is coming to America as jobs are created. Please also grant us safety from terrorism and the anarchy that is rising up. Our people need to know they can safely move forward. In Jesus Name. Amen.

January 26 – Revitalizing Business and the Economy

The United States’ economy continues to be one of the strongest in the world. However, it was shaken hard in 2007-2008 and it has not fully recovered yet—10 years later. Government statistics have been adjusted to make it appear that we have fully recovered and that the jobless rate is low, but that is not quite the truth. Many middle-aged workers were forced out of the job-market prematurely. Many young workers struggle to find any kind of meaningful employment, especially in the inner cities. American companies fled to foreign shores and America needs them back. Trade agreements have been entered into that benefit other nations over this nation. They need to be adjusted to benefit all parties without harming the domestic economy.

“’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” (Jeremiah 29:11; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray for a full recovery of the economy of the United States of America.
  • Ask the Lord for His creativity to be poured out on the people He has placed across many industries. Ask Him to give them witty inventions and ideas. Pray that the government works with business, with just enough regulation to keep the public safe, while allowing maximum economic benefit from the release of these inventions.
  • Pray for supernatural answers to tough economic problems, such as how to end generational poverty and how to bring American factories back to our shores, putting American workers back to work.
  • Intercede for trade agreements to be quickly renegotiated in such a manner that every nation is a winner. Pray that the nations of the earth become partners with one another, as opposed to one nation lording over another, or stronger nations taking on a paternalistic role with another, limiting their ability to fully mature economically.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, America needs a turn-around, and we need it quickly! Pour out Your creativity on business and government, education and family, to give solutions to systemic problems we struggle with as individuals, cities, states and nations. We need safety and security. We need prosperity and jobs. We ask for solutions to end generational poverty. Grant wisdom to our President and those working with him to form trade arrangements that benefit all nations involved. For Yours is the Kingdom, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

God’s supernatural answers and creativity are about to be poured out for Kingdom advancement in America now!
