The Odds Are in Our Favor

I had to learn that the odds are never against me. The odds are always in our favor. The Church can’t go by natural statistics. It seems like everything we do the odds are against it. Do it anyway! It will give you confidence to face hell’s kingdom and its evil strategies. The greatest days in church history are not in our past, they are in our present and in our future. (Tim Sheets)1

“And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.” (1 John 5:5; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask the Lord to forgive you if you have felt like things are so stacked against the Church and biblical values in this nation that there is no God-way out.
  • Thank the Lord that He has won, does win and will win every battle. He has plans we don’t know!
  • Ask the Lord to share His plans with you. Boldly ask Him to give you a fresh new faith to do the impossible with Him. Ask Him for a spiritual job to do that is bigger than you. Stretch your faith as you pray and act.

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Lord, the way things look right now in this nation challenges my faith. It looks like things are getting darker and farther away from anything that could be pleasing to You. Forgive me for forgetting who You are and what You have done and have planned. Keep me in Your Word. Give me greater faith to confront the enemy in prayer and works. Give me something to do that stretches my faith! You are moving and I want to be a part! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Today’s decree:

The greatest days in the history of the Church and this nation are before us!

A Kingdom Ekklesia Move of God

The Church is going to do some new things in some brand new ways. Hell is going to face, like it has never faced possibly in 2000 years, a Church founded on the faith of the prophets and apostles. It’s going to face a Kingdom Ekklesia that is now functioning in Kingdom government. There has never been a Kingdom-of-God move like this—from glory to glory to glory to glory! (Tim Sheets)1

“So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord–who is the Spirit–makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.” (2 Corinthians 3:18; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Jesus was a threat to hell and we should be also. Ask the Lord to change you in a greater degree into the image of Christ and all that means—greater grace, greater reflection of God’s glory, greater anointing, greater miracles, and greater threat to hell!
  • Bring your greatest fear for our nation to the Lord. Now, ask the Lord to give you a scripture, the sword of the Lord, to defeat this fear. Declare that scripture over the situation and keep declaring it until faith rises up and you are prophetically decreeing it.
  • Proclaim that you are a part of the Kingdom Ekklesia. Pray for others you know who love the Lord. Pray that they will rise up and learn to pray boldly as a part of the Kingdom Ekklesia, as well.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, Jesus is our example and way-maker and He was a major threat to hell while He walked the earth, and He still is! Form us into the image of Christ and cause us to rise up in Kingdom revelation and Kingdom power to defeat the enemy in this nation. Use me to overcome the darkness! Put a sword of scripture in my heart and in my mouth and cause me to wield it to change things! I pray for my family and friends who know You that they would rise up unafraid and unashamed and with boldness to confront the enemy, as well. Amen.

Today’s decree:

There has never been a people more filled with faith, igniting a Kingdom move of God like this one!

He Who Has Ears

In Revelation 2 and 3 the Word says repeatedly, “He that has an ear to hear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches.” The Message version says it this way, “Are your ears awake? Then listen!” There has never been a day quite like the days we have now entered. There has never been a move of God like the one we will now see where millions upon millions of prodigals will return and where there will be millions upon millions of new converts to Christ. (Tim Sheets)1

“If you have ears, then listen to what the Spirit says to the churches!” (Revelations 2:7a; GNT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Holy Spirit is blowing His Wind of revival and transformation across the nation! It has already begun! Rejoice and tell God you are excited to be a part of this move of God!
  • Sit and intensely listen for God to speak to you. Let Him whisper scripture to you or give you a picture of what He’s doing. Maybe He will give you someone to pray for or show you a situation with specific instructions to pray and/or act. Pray the way He shows you to for a few minutes. Write down any instructions.
  • Thank Him in advance for the return of the prodigals. Pray for the lost again today. Name every one you can think of that needs to return to the Lord or come to know Him for the first time. Pray the way Holy Spirit leads you to.

A prayer you can pray:

Father! We are in such exciting days! Tune my ears to hear your Holy Spirit! I want to hear clearly and partner with You in Your activities! I want to sit and listen carefully for Your prayer direction. I want to hear Your clear instruction for action! I am watching intently for the prodigals to return by the millions, just as the prophets have foretold! I pray for every lost soul I know right now (with great faith stirred up, name them all!) Amen! Amen! Amen!

Today’s decree:

Let every Believer hear the Holy Spirit clearly and know how to pray and act and participate in this great move of God!

Believing the Future Into Being

As Walter Wink so eloquently states, we are forming the future today. “History belongs to the intercessors, who believe the future into being. If this is so, then intercession, far from being an escape from action, is a means of focusing for action and of creating action. By means of our intercessions we veritably cast fire upon the earth and trumpet the future into being.”1 Let’s go get our future!

“Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. ‘For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.’” (Matthew 18:19-20; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Want to change history? Commit to the Lord to be an intercessor! Grab a friend or two, even over the phone, and pray together a few minutes a day. Get a journal and write down what you pray, then watch for answers in the news!
  • Intercession is prayer and action. Start with prayer today over an issue the Lord has placed on your heart. Ask the Lord what you can practically do to change it. Do that!
  • Now, sit a minute and let the Holy Spirit show you what the future can look like in our nation. Intercede with passion that the way things are now will line up with what He has just shown you.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I want to be a history maker, so make me an intercessor! Give me Your prayer assignments for this nation. Show me who I can invite to pray with me on a regular basis. As we record our prayers, give us answers in the news! We want to record the activities of heaven as You intervene in our nation and literally change the course it is on. Alter history as we pray, Lord! Line things up with Your perfect Will and destiny for America! In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

Today’s decree:

The intercessors will believe the future of our nation into being and I want to be one of them!

Expect the Unexpected

There will be a spiritual war with religion. Religion will try to hold you in captivity to what God did at a certain time, but is no longer doing. Law wants to hold old methods in place. Jesus said, “Don’t be offended at what I do.” There may come a stumbling block in the near future. Don’t stumble over it. Find the new way. It will probably be a resurrection of the Jesus movement, because that movement never matured. It was rejected by the Church of the day. (Chuck Pierce)1

“The blind see, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have good news proclaimed to them. Blessed is anyone who takes no offense at me.” (Matthew 11:5-6; GW)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Have you ever asked yourself if you would recognize Jesus if He came today? Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help you discern what the Father is doing. Tell Him you do not want to resist the next move of God.
  • Repent over those places you know of in your heart and life where you like religious things to be a certain way.
  • Now, do something different than you would normally do to worship Him. Put a different type of worship on or pray a different way or listen to a speaker who’s new on the scene. Push yourself out of your comfort zone on purpose. Get your heart ready for change.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I can feel the change that’s coming. I want to recognize what You are doing! I don’t want to be one stuck in an old place, stuck in the Law. Please forgive the love I have for religious tradition if it will cause me to miss what You are about to do. I don’t want to be like the Pharisees and actively oppose Your next move! I will war for the discernment I need by worshipping in a new way. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

Today’s decree:

I choose to be at war with the spirit of religion that will keep me from seeing the next move of God!

Two Connected Spiritual Wars Must Be Won

A new Kingdom momentum is being released for the future. You will triumph in the war ahead. There are three “wars” in every new season. The first one is over mammon and poverty. “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation and I care not who makes the rules.”~Mayer Amschel Rothschild  There will also be a war with infirmity. It shakes hands with mammon and poverty. Deal with the economy of an area and a great portal of healing will open. (Chuck Pierce)1

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • The President and Dept. of Education’s recent mandate to allow transgendered individuals access to bathrooms and changing facilities contained an economic threat – that school districts would lose their federal funding if they did not comply. Declare that your school district will not serve mammon and will reject this threat. Pray that your school board will see this threat for what it is and not bow to it.
  • Find your school district’s website and write the superintendent and school board members, respectfully letting them know you are opposed to this, especially since the federal government is attaching the threat of losing federal funding. This threat would hurt the poor in the public schools the most. Write the President.
  • Is the area you live in affected by poverty and/or infirmity? Pray into the economy and find a way to give into your community in some way as a prophetic seed to break the poverty. Expect God to open a well of healing!

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Lord, I declare that the threat in the mandate the White House and Dept. of Education recently issued will be rejected by my local school district. We choose to serve God, not mammon. I pray for the members of the school board and the superintendent that they will be brave and not bow to this threat, but will realize what it is and tell the President and Dept. of Education that they will not give in to economic terrorism for any reason. Lord, show me where to give an offering in my city to break cycles of poverty and break any strongholds of mammon that may exist in my community. Open wells of healing in my region. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

Today’s decree:

Strongholds of mammon, poverty and infirmity must bow to the name of Jesus and the actions of the Saints of God to break their power over my region! Wells of healing, open!

Unity in Crisis

We don’t want big crises to have to force us into unity. We want the excitement God is creating to cause us to gather. We’re in a very narrow transition time. It seems to be getting more narrow each day, but we can’t stop and ponder it. Our political system needs to be confronted and it is being confronted! We need to keep moving and we need to move forward in unity. (Chuck Pierce)1

“Brothers and sisters, I encourage all of you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to agree with each other and not to split into opposing groups. I want you to be united in your understanding and opinions.” (1 Corinthians 1:10; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Let’s repent to the Lord for jumping to conclusions about what is happening politically. Maybe He is shaking things up to cause us to be unified.
  • Ask the Lord to expose any prejudices, haughtiness or judgmentalism you have in your heart toward other Believers. Repent.
  • Putting the above two points together, receive a revelation that this is why the Church has not advanced the Kingdom further—we can’t seem to get on the same page. Church, we have to! Ask the Lord for grace to get into unity somehow, some way. Now!
  • Rejoice that we are living in exciting days and we will see God direct us in miraculous ways!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, forgive us for assuming that things in our nation are out of control, as if You are blind or uncaring. Thank you for shaking things up and encouraging us to press into seeking you and working together. Show us where there are things in our hearts and our minds that keep us from expanding Your Kingdom as one. The enemy is taking advantage of our separateness, but we don’t have time for that. Grace, Lord! Make us one! Our political system is being confronted and change is coming! Amen.

Today’s decree:

God’s grace and our determination to be unified will make the Church one so that the nation’s political system can be corrected!

Full Exposure

“If Satan would have known what the cross would do, he would never have pulled that trick. There are times when we have to let the enemy show his hand before we can act. Then you bring forth what God is doing. In this next six months the enemy is going to clearly show his hand in the United States. Be assured God is waiting to direct His church how to act.” (Chuck Pierce)1

“God planned this wisdom for our glory, before the world began. None of the rulers of this world understood it. If they had, they would not have killed the Lord of glory on a cross.” (1 Corinthians 2:7b-8; ICB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord that He was able to keep the enemy from seeing that he was walking right into God’s plan when he influenced the leaders of the day to crucify Jesus on the cross. He didn’t see what the cross would do to him until it was too late!
  • Ask the Lord to help you look carefully at all of the liberal policies that are being rapidly put in place right now with seemingly none to stop them. It could be that the enemy is overplaying his hand and God is about to act to reverse it all in a moment. Be encouraged! God is not mocked.
  • Command full exposure of the enemy’s hand!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, you know exactly what You are doing! Satan thinks he is control and has the upper hand, but we know You do! You are never taken by surprise and You are always in control. Thank you that you will help us to see what is really going on and what You are planning to do about it, as we press into intercession over these matters that we see. Let me be patient in the meantime. I command the enemy’s plots and plans to be fully exposed! In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

The Lord is causing the enemy’s plans to come to fullness right now in America.

The Faith-building Crisis

“We are in such a crisis time right now. But there’s an excitement in it. It’s not like other election cycles where we were pressing in. There’s something about the crisis and what this season represents. The excitement in it is producing a great faith. There’s a great faith in it and the faith is rising. What we’re doing now is birthing the next decade of testimony. It’s the testimony for the future.” (Chuck Pierce)1

“My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all the day, for their number is past my knowledge. With the mighty deeds of the Lord God I will come; I will remind them of your righteousness, yours alone.” (Psalms 71:15-16; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Crisis can move us one of two ways, into the Lord or away from Him. Make sure in this season that you do not get confused, but rather press in to Him to understand His ways! Tell the Lord you want to understand and to stand firm in these windy chaotic times.
  • In faith, proclaim the goodness of the Lord. Let words of praise and prayers of praise to God bubble up inside of you. Let all those praises out and worship Him!
  • Ask the Lord to give you a testimony—a testimony of what you have seen Him do in your life and in this nation, something you will tell your children and grandchildren about. Get ready, because miracles and testimonies only come through turbulent life circumstances.
  • Speak to the turbulence, the chaos, the crises you see and say, “Peace! Be still! Submit to the wind of the Holy Spirit and the perfect will of God!”

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Lord, as I see the crisis in this nation in this election season, I want to understand what You are doing in it and about it. I want to know Your ways. Your ways are higher than mine and without the revelation the Holy Spirit brings I am not able to discern. I worship You and I am so grateful to You that I got chosen to live in this day and age. Let me partner with You in prayer and watch miracles happen—things I will tell my children about that testify of You! I speak to the chaos across this nation, especially in the governmental arena and I say, “Peace, be still! Circumstances, line up with the perfect will of God!” Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The crises in this nation are causing an excitement in God’s people, and a great faith leading to great generation-transforming testimonies is rising up

The Legislation of the Church

There are tens of thousands of Believers across the nation contending for America’s future. The Lord gives us an assurance that He doesn’t need a majority of people in order to enact the change that He wants to bring.  He just needs the remnant, a few. Let’s separate ourselves to Him, acknowledge that He’s in control, drop our agendas for His and be willing to do what He wants done. This is how a nation is changed.

“Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them.” (Ephesians 5:11; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Are you willing to be one of those that exposes the works of darkness? Will you contend in prayer for light to pierce the darkness and expose it for what it is?
  • Tell the enemy that He can go no further, his time is done and God is about to move to dethrone him in America.
  • Pray for the transgendered, that they will know how deeply they are loved by Father God.
  • Command the door be closed to legislation and other governmental action seeking to open our bathrooms and changing rooms to those of the opposite biological sex. This is not hatred or fear-based intercession, but is an act of lovingly protecting our children from the potential for pedophilia and other acts of sexual abuse.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I am willing to be your instrument of intercession. I command everything being done in darkness, being planned in darkness, that is behind these so-called “bathroom equality” bills, to get into the light! Satan, you can stop right there, that is far enough! God is about to dethrone you in this nation. I can tell you know this, because you are looking bold and proud, but you are acting in desperation, because you know your days are numbered. Lord, reveal the depth of Your love and grace to the transgendered. I command the door to our nation’s public bathrooms and changing rooms shut to the opposite sex now in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The remnant is moving now to legislate in the heavens affecting legislation in the earth!
