Build and Plant

“The Lord showed us clearly that this is a new season where the ekklesia is being given the anointing not only to root out, and tear down, but this will be a special season of building and planting. The revelation of blessing our cities and nations will be a kingdom anthem for the ekklesia.  If we root out, but do not plant, then the nations will only be exposed to worse than they had been before. Therefore, we admonish the intercessors to pray beyond the tearing down of old systems and pray into the structures and systems that need to form afterward. Let’s intercede for new leaders and effective systems to be put in place that will build up their nations.”1

“See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.” (Jeremiah 1:10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • We have warred much. We have warred, because we love much. We have passionately torn down. Ask the Lord to stir up that compassion now to build up!
  • Pray for the building up of our nation’s hopeless ones, due to poverty, sickness, joblessness, broken relationships, etc.
  • Spiritually build up the fatherless, the lonely and the elderly.
  • Prayerfully build up the broken cities—Detroit, Chicago, New Orleans, and others that you know of.
  • Ask the Lord for strategies to rebuild our healthcare system, our nation’s economics, immigration and energy systems.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we thank You for teaching us how to use Your Word to war against the enemy. The ekklesia has been passionate about seeing wrong structures torn down and rooted out. It’s time now for the building up of the nation. We need Your strategies. Our hopeless citizens need you: the lonely, our veterans, our elderly and the disabled. Some of our cities need rebuilt, physically and spiritually. Where crime and violence, joblessness and systemic poverty have taken root, we ask for Your strategies to replace these things with revelation of You, life-giving activities, renewed economies and vibrancy. Grant wisdom for the rebuilding of our healthcare system, our immigration system and many other things our nation needs. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We have uprooted and torn down, now it is time to build and to plant!

Another Generation

“A new generation of spiritual warriors will be trained and arise to do governmental and prophetic intercession.  Old prayer movements will be strengthened, and a new generation of prayer warriors will arise for battle. There will be an awakening of prayer and spiritual warfare. Deliverance will take place on many levels through this fresh movement.”1

“What you have done will be praised from one generation to the next;
they will proclaim your mighty acts.” (Psalm 145:4; GNT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask the Lord to raise up the next generation of prayer warriors. Pray specifically for some of the young people and children you know who love to pray.
  • Intercede for the prayer movement in America. Call it forward and pray for an increase in power and authority.
  • Pray for new teachers, fresh revelation and that new prayer strategies would be released. Write down anything the Lord shows you!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we are excited that You are raising up another generation of Believers who will know how to stop the enemy in his tracks. They will know how to build and plant, as well. Kingdom advancers, that’s what these young people will be! Build Your army up strong. America needs all the prayer warriors we can muster for the chaotic days we are in. What a great training ground for these young ones, Lord. Raise up the prayer teachers and trainers. Give fresh revelation from Your Word to each of us to give to another. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is raising up another generation of prayer warriors who are passionate lovers of God!

The Crowned Sword in 2017

We need to understand the Hebraic meaning of our times. The year 2017 on the Roman calendar corresponds to the year 5777 on the Hebraic calendar, which is symbolized by the crowned sword. The sword cuts off the old and releases the new. The enemy has been trying to “cut off” many relationships and come against the new move of unity coming to families and the Body of Christ. We see Satan being defeated on many levels as we experience great breakthroughs, both personally and corporately.

“If you listen obediently to the Voice of God, your God, and heartily obey all his commandments that I command you today, God, your God, will place you on high, high above all the nations of the world. All these blessings will come down on you and spread out beyond you because you have responded to the Voice of God, your God: God’s blessing inside the city, God’s blessing in the country; God’s blessing on your children, the crops of your land, the young of your livestock, the calves of your herds, the lambs of your flocks. God’s blessing on your basket and bread bowl; God’s blessing in your coming in, God’s blessing in your going out.” (Deuteronomy 28:1-6; MSG)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Who doesn’t want the blessing of the Lord on their lives! This year, God will help us cut away what keeps those blessings from us! Repent through the 10 Commandments Click here to find them.
  • Ask for the blessings in Deut. 28:1-6 that the Lord says are yours.
  • Pray John 17:22-23 over your relationships.
  • Interceded for unity in the Body of Christ over your church relationships, over the Church in your city, and for the Church in America.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I want Your blessings in my life! I am not timid in asking! I declare I want to be blessed. As I read through Your 10 commandments, show me if I still need to repent of something in my life that does not line up with You. I ask for the blessings of Deuteronomy 28:1-6 above: God’s blessing in my city, God’s blessing in this country; God’s blessing on my children, the labor of my life, the provision You have given me; God’s blessing on my health and well-being; God’s blessing in my coming in, God’s blessing in my going out. I agree with Jesus in His prayer in John 17:22-23, for unity in my family and among the Believers in my church, city and nation. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I wield the crowned sword of the Lord, the Word of the Lord, and will watch God’s blessings fall in every area of my life, in my city and in America!

2017 ACPE Word of the Lord – Introduction

“God overcame the sins of rebellious humans when He began to flood the earth and rested on the 17th day of the Hebrew month. Noah’s ark and its eight passengers rested on the mountains of Ararat on the 17th day of the seventh month of the religious year (Tishrei), right in the middle of God’s Holy period known as the Feast of Tabernacles. This year is the time for the breakthrough to victory. There will be a significant increase in miracles and signs and wonders. The anointing will be so strong that it will break significant and long-standing strongholds that have plagued people’s lives.”1

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” (Isaiah 10:27; NKJV)

  • We have been waiting for this year! Rejoice!
  • Declare that you believe we have come to a resting place where there is finally breakthrough to victory!
  • Stir up your faith that you are anointed in this year for breakthrough, then decree victory into every situation you need to see victory in.
  • Join the “National Breakthrough Prayer Call” at 6 A. M. in your time zone every Thursday morning to pray for your breakthrough and the breakthrough for others: (641) 715-0632 Access code: 504812#

A prayer you can pray:

We rejoice in Your Name, Jesus, for You have brought us through to victory! We embrace this year, 2017, the Year of Breakthrough! Things we have prayed about for many years will come to pass. I stir up my faith for this, Lord! I declare that the yoke that has held me down and held me back will be destroyed this year, because of the anointing God is providing for this reason. I decree (decree victory into your most challenging situations.) Thank you, Jesus! Amen.

Restoring the Family Altar

As I was speaking in a conference, I saw a vision of our nation shrouded in darkness. Suddenly, a single home started to glow with living light, which then spread to others, rapidly transforming the entire country. Then I heard the voice of the Lord sayRevival will come to America when the family altar is restored.’ In that moment, I felt like I received from God the key to revival for our nation!” (Cheryl Sacks1 “’Why are people praying about the strongman over every mountain (or sphere of society), such as government and media, and yet have never prayed about the strongholds of the issues pertaining to the family?’ After thinking about this, I realized that we, as a prayer movement, needed to address the corporate issues that affect the first institution the Lord created—the family.” (Cindy Jacobs)2

“These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.” (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for showing us a key to revival in America—the relighting of the family altar in prayer.
  • Ask the Lord to strengthen believing families across America.
  • Pray for your own family and ask the Lord for prayer strategies for your family to know the Lord in fullness.
  • Get Cheryl’s book, The Prayer-Saturated Family, and use the resources and prompts to help you build your family altar.
  • Let your Pastor know about this and ask them to participate.

A prayer you can pray:

God, I thank You that You have revealed to the prophets a key to revival in America—restoring the family altar. We believe the Word of the Lord for this year. Strengthen our families as we learn to pray together more effectively, Lord. Let us not neglect this. Stir the hearts of the fathers and mothers to their children and may we not be neglectful in this. Grant us a deep relationship with You as a family. Thank You for providing resources to help us. Grant us favor to help get our churches and other families on board, as well. To Your glory, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The fire of the family altar will be restored in 2017 and will result in revival in America!

Welcome to 2017!

What exciting days we are living in! Watch for the world stage to get very busy, as it relates to the United States. Governing world powers will challenge our new President over Israel, energy, trade, immigration and other global issues. Internally, there will be conflict over the Supreme Court, what to do about Obamacare, abortion law, job creation and a number of other matters. Never forget that God is ultimately in control and that we look to Him for His path forward.

“And it will be said in that day, ‘Behold, this is our God for whom we have waited that He might save us. This is the Lord for whom we have waited; let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.” (Isaiah 25:9; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • This year must begin with worship!
  • Tell the Lord that you are looking to Him for salvation of our nation and of your family and friends. Acknowledge that He alone is Savior and Lord of the earth.
  • Decide that you will intercede this year on a whole new level. Ask God for the grace to do so.
  • Get a notebook and ask the Lord how to focus your prayers. Write down any scripture and/or insights He gives you.
  • Rejoice, rejoice rejoice! God is at work! He is answering our prayers in this year of Breakthrough!

A prayer you can pray:

I worship You, Lord God of the universe! You are Lord of my life and God over this nation. I exalt You and praise Your holy name! I refuse to look anywhere else for someone to put this nation back on a healthy, God-honoring track. I look to You and You alone to save us! The enemy is threatening our nation, Lord, particularly our nation’s new leadership. However, You will show me how to join many other intercessors and pray prayers Your way. I will document what You are doing, for this is going to be a year of miracle Breakthroughs! I rejoice in the God of my salvation! Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Behold, this is our God for whom we have waited that He might save us. This is the Lord for whom we have waited; let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation!

Truth

The dark is getting darker, but the light is growing brighter! It is becoming more obvious to those who have eyes to see that God is at work. Those who do not know the Lord, and who are governing and in positions of earthly influence, are making every attempt to make us all think that wickedness is okay and that darkness is the best thing. In fact, those of us who choose light are made to appear to be judgmental, divisive and lacking compassion. We had better know His Word. It is the only way we are going to be able to truly know Truth—right and wrong!

“You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” (John 8:32; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Do a word search for “truth” in the Bible. Learn and declare what “truth” is into the atmosphere.
  • Is any of this convicting you? Is there any place where you have aligned yourself with the world’s opinions, instead of the Word of God? Repent and ask the Lord to realign you.
  • Pray the news. Go to the news today, both local and national. Pray for truth in the situations you read about and pray the Word you just read into them. (Make this a regular habit.)

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, as I go research the word “truth” in the Bible, open my spiritual eyes to see what You want me to learn about Truth. If my life does not line up with Your Word, convict me of sin, Holy Spirit. I want to repent and get my thoughts lined up with Yours. I want to be able to see what You are doing right now. I don’t want to get my thought-processes from the media or by what governing leaders tell me I should believe. Separate the light and darkness in me and in this nation. Show me how to pray as I go to the news today, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I will know God’s truth and that truth will set me free!

The Discipline of the Lord

What a privilege it is to be a child of God! We get to be disciplined by Him! What? You say you don’t like discipline? Oh, rethink that! In the discipline process, He works sin and generational iniquities out of us. He refines us and sanctifies us, transforming us into the nature of Christ. We won’t all come out looking alike in some religious pattern. Rather, we will shine with His Presence and be able to fulfill the fullness of the call of God that He has planned specifically for us! What a great joy!

“In this all-out match against sin, others have suffered far worse than you, to say nothing of what Jesus went through—all that bloodshed! So don’t feel sorry for yourselves. Or have you forgotten how good parents treat children, and that God regards you as his children?” (Hebrews 12:4-5; MSG)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Invite God to discipline you, if need be!
  • Be brave and tell Him that You need His discipline to be everything He created you to be. Ask Him to make you ready and to provide the grace to bring you through it.
  • Our nation’s future is dependent on the Church, His beautiful Bride, maturing even further—becoming bold, living righteously, and having strength of character.
  • Intercede on behalf of our nation that it would be disciplined as well. God loves America and has a wonderful plan for this nation, so He will be happy to comply.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I invite Your discipline into my life. I may not like it in the short-term, but in the long-run, I will love who I have become. I also want to see more of Who You are. My eyes are often opened as I see You in a new role in my life. Grace me Lord to not give up as You correct me. Deliver me and clean me up! I want to make You known and not have anywhere in me that the enemy can grab hold of and pull me down with. Do this for the United States, as well! May we fulfill our destiny in this hour and glorify You, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We embrace the discipline of the Lord, knowing that He disciplines whom He loves—both we and America.

Separating the Holy and the Profane

Why are we accepting sin? Why are we accepting the ways of the world as if we have no choice? We act as if God is not watching! The Lord starts first at the Church when He cleans up a nation. He has to. It is just and right. We can’t expect the world to get its act together when ours is not. Aren’t you glad He loves us so much that He won’t leave us in our filth?

“Your priests violate my teachings and dishonor my holy things. They don’t distinguish between what is holy and what is unholy. They don’t teach the difference between what is clean and what is unclean. They ignore the days to worship me. So I am dishonored among the people.” (Ezekiel 22:26; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Come close to God today—very close. You are blood-washed, so you can come close.
  • Repent of any area of your life where you are not able to break sinful or iniquitous sin patterns. Don’t try to justify anything! Feel His forgiveness and His holiness wash over you.
  • Invite the Holy Spirit to show you what is holy and clean and what is unholy and unclean. Where you have trouble accepting the truth of His Word, ask Him to give you a divine exchange—His Truth for the lies you believe, even though you may not have realized it.
  • Read Ezekiel 22 and let Holy Spirit show you how to pray for the Church and the nation. Read it in the Message version, if possible.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I am so thankful that I can tuck in close to You. I am always welcome, thanks to Jesus’ blood shed for me! Coming close to You helps me feel the sin in my life and I give it all to You. Forgive me Lord and line me up with Your Word and Your plan for my life. Clean me up and help me be able to discern what is holy and unholy, clean and unclean in Your eyes. I want to be able to speak into the situations in my Church and in the nation that are contrary to Your Word, so clean my spiritual sight up and let me be holy, Jesus. I will read and pray through Ezekiel 22 and get this right. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God will straighten us up and give His Church the ability to show the nation the difference between holy and unclean.

Wisdom and Understanding

President-elect Donald J. Trump and his Cabinet members are going to need much wisdom to navigate their way forward. There are challenges, both real and imagined. Mr. Trump does not have experience in government, but he appears to be installing those around him that will provide what he is lacking. Natural knowledge will be very important, but those who know to seek the Lord for wisdom will be a greater treasure.

“The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord.” (Isaiah 11:2; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray Isaiah 11:2 above over Donald Trump. Take your time and let Holy Spirit show you how to expand your intercession for him.
  • Pray the same over his Cabinet choices. You can find the current list here. Bookmark the page and keep going back to it regularly as you pray for them.
  • Intercede for your Senators and Congressmen likewise. You can find them here and here.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I ask that you would lead Donald Trump by Your Spirit, Lord. Regardless of his depth of relationship with You, please grace him with a gift of wisdom. Teach him what he doesn’t know. Help him to continue to make wise choices of those he surrounds himself with. Where Cabinet members know You, grant them Your wisdom and understanding of how to use the knowledge You give them, paired with what they know of the natural realm, to lead our nation forward. Grant them all, together with our Congressmen and women, great skill and the humility to seek You daily. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

God desires to pour out His Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord on our nation’s new leaders.
