Report on “Giants Will Fall” – Part 5

On Saturday morning in Chattanooga, the presence of the Lord came into the meeting in a profound way. It was both tender and strong. Holy Spirit reminded us of the mercy He offered America in the 2016 elections and we pressed into this mercy once again. We felt the Lord’s strong embrace and His great love for our nation. From this place of strength, we made powerful decrees over America and against the spiritual giants that have ruled us. It is often impossible to adequately communicate what occurs spiritually in a conference such as this. Some “atmospheres” simply must be experienced. But I will say that this gathering reached an epic point in prayer and intercession for America. I am rejoicing and grateful beyond words. Please be in prayer with us as we determine the next step for the Appeal to Heaven gatherings.

For judgment is without mercy to him who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.” (James 2:13)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Sit quietly before the Lord. Put on quiet worship, if you like, but don’t sing. Just sit in His Presence. Let Him tell You about His mercy.
  • Ask Him about His love for America.
  • Ask Him to teach you about His mercy toward America.
  • After You have heard His heart, stand up and make the decrees over America that He lays on your heart.
  • We humbly ask for your intercession as we listen carefully to the Lord for the next steps for the Appeal to Heaven Movement. Thank you!

A prayer you can pray:

(Please follow the points above and enjoy time in His presence today. He is the best one to teach us all how to pray for America.)

Today’s decree:

Mercy will triumph over judgment in America!

A Report on “Giants Will Fall” – Part 4

There was also a great emphasis on the Millennials and Generation Z (those born in 1995 or later). We heard first-hand testimonies from several teenagers who were in DC praying during the Kavanaugh hearings. Our host church had planned the trip for a year, not knowing they would be taking the 70 teenagers to the Capital at such a strategic time! The Lord used them tremendously while in D.C., and in the conference, they led us in powerful prayer for the healing and restoration of our nation. It was a very moving session.

We will not hide (these truths) from our children. We will tell the next generation about the LORD’s power and great deeds and the miraculous things he has done.” (Psalm 78:4; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Shout and clap and thank God for our young adults and teens who love Him and have a passion to intercede for this nation.
  • Ask the Lord to raise up more and more young intercessors.
  • Repent for thinking that all young people are self-centered and self-focused.
  • Find a prayer room       where the young lead the worship. Go sit in the service and soak it up. Intercede for the intercessors and worshippers.
  • If you are a pastor, host a night of worship and intercession led by the young in your congregation.

A prayer you can pray:

I worship You, God! I thank You and praise You for the young adults in America. I thank you for those who love You and desire to pray for America. I am encouraged hearing about their powerful, faith-filled prayers at our nation’s capital. It was clearly Your plan to have that church from Chattanooga schedule a trip to take their youth and young adults to D.C. to coincide with the Kavanaugh hearings. You stirred their hearts for intercession in the midst of a tremendous battle. You orchestrated putting them right in the middle of this historic shift in the Court. You gave them a Justice that would fight for life in their generation. You gave them a heritage of “life”. I pray it holds! Show me where there is a house of prayer near me that is filled with young worshippers and intercessors. I want to go and intercede for them while they minister before You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree young adults and teens in the Church will be fully welcomed in their roles as worshippers and intercessors for America!

A Report on “Giants Will Fall” – Part 3

Closely associated with praying for the Supreme Court is the abortion issue. There was much prayer this year regarding this hideous giant. We believe we are close to seeing the evil law, Roe vs Wade, reversed. This could be the most significant event of our lifetime regarding America’s future and destiny. This giant is falling. We also prayed against the giant of racism. Chuck Pierce spoke strongly into this, stating that the root of racism is anti-Semitism. Will Ford and Matt Lockett also shared powerful words regarding this stronghold. Indeed, their very lives, mingled together, are weapons against this hideous spirit. After they shared their story of racial healing and harmony, it was incredibly moving to see Black, White, and First Nations brothers kneeling together around Will’s ancestral kettle [you can read their story in their new book The Dream King]. We believe much happened in the spirit realm to bind the strongman and dismantle the stronghold of racism in America.

“David said to the Philistine, ‘You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head… All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.’” (1 Samuel 17:45, 46a amd 47; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • David ran to the battle against that giant taunting Israel, Goliath. Do not be afraid to engage these modern day giants! Gird yourself up with worship and get ready to overthrow these giants with prayer!
  • Stir up the faith to believe that abortion and racism are coming up by the root!
  • Intercede for someone who you know is Jewish.
  • Repent of any sense of anti-Semitism you may feel.
  • Intercede for someone you do not always get along with who is a different race than you. Note what happens to your heart. Let God minister there and fill you with His love and compassion.
  • Look for ways today to love, serve, and honor those who are a different race than you.

A prayer you can pray:

God, so much goes into shaping my mindsets and heart attitudes, and it is not all Your Word. Things others say may sway me. The ways my family members act toward others may be the way I naturally act. In the case of abortion, I may hate those who choose abortion, perform abortions, fund abortions, or support any of those. My anger may override any ability to lovingly intercede for those you love. I have to remember that all of these people have the same enemy I do – one that seeks to steal, kill, and destroy. He is a deceiver and the father of lies. Focus my intercession where it should be and break my heart for what breaks Yours! I purposefully choose to intercede for Jewish friends today. I intercede for Jewish politicians, media personalities, and neighbors. Reveal any inkling of judgmentalism or anti-Semitism in me. I give You permission, Holy Spirit, to root it out! (Pray also for someone you know is another race than you.) God, make us one, even as You are One. Let me go through the day today and love as You love, Jesus, especially where another’s race is different from mine. I want to be purposeful in prayer and action to destroy this giant of racism. Amen!

Today’s decree:

The giants of abortion and racism are falling in America!

A Report on “Giants Will Fall” – Part 2

We prayed not only for the Supreme Court, but for all of our government. God is using our president to shift the Judicial system, expose corruption in our government, strengthen our military and economy, support the Church, and reverse many unrighteous regulations. We prayed for our President, asking God to give us the leaders we need in all congressional and governmental offices. We were also reminded that once conservative leaders are in office, we must remember to continue praying for them and their families.

Pray for kings and others in power, so we may live quiet and peaceful lives as we worship and honor God.” (I Timothy 2:2; CEV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • If we desire freedom to worship, we must commit to pray for our government leaders.
  • If we want an environment of freedom to share the Gospel in America, we must pray for those we have chosen to lead us. Ask the Lord to give you more of a heart to do so.
  • Pray for President Trump. Thank the Lord for the things he has accomplished, such as appointing Justice Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. He has also increased religious freedom, strengthened our economy and reversed unrighteous regulations. Ask God to grant him greater wisdom and self-control.
  • Intercede for all of your Senators and Representatives. Call, email, or write them and let them know you are praying for them. Visit your Congressman’s local office and ask to pray with their staff. Let them know you care about them as a person, even if you don’t agree with their political ideology.
  • Choose a member of President Trump’s Cabinet (here). Bless them today in Jesus’ name.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, Your Word tells me to pray for those who govern me. It clearly says that Your people can live peaceful lives, if we pray. How could I not want a peaceful environment for America and my family? There is so much fear, division, anger, and anxiety in this nation today. Help me to be a part of the prayer solution, instead of running my mouth on social media, inflaming the problems. I thank you for President Trump, my Senators, my Representative, and all those who govern this nation. I want to learn about them, encourage them, write them, and intercede for them. Let them feel loved by You through the prayers of the saints. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We commit to pray for our government leaders.

A Report on Giants Will Fall – Part 1

We have hosted 3 Appeal to Heaven conferences this year — The Turnaround in Washington, DC, Forward in Colorado  Springs, and Giants Will Fall in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In the words of a trusted prophetic friend, “I thought after DC I would never experience anything as great in my life. To my surprise, Colorado Springs was greater and Chattanooga, shockingly, was greater than them both.” The consensus from leaders present was that we are now experiencing this great shift, and that another opening will be occurring on the Court very soon. We prayed into this, not by “cursing” any individual, but by praying blessings and salvation over all the Justices, while also asking God for the vacancy. We then prayed and decreed His choice to replace the next person leaving the Bench.

He picked up five smooth stones from a stream and put them into his shepherd’s bag. Then, armed only with his shepherd’s staff and sling, he started across the valley to fight the Philistine.” (1 Samuel 17:40; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for the many prayer gatherings that have been held this last year, where the focus was on exalting God over America!
  • Choose to put your entire trust in the Lord regarding the nation’s current spiritual position.
  • Begin to pray for the next person the Lord is raising up to become a Supreme Court Justice.
  • Bless all of the current nine Supreme Court Justices.
  • Thank the Lord in advance for the prophesied vacancy on the Court.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we are so encouraged by the increasing anointing for prayer for our nation. Each time we gather together, You show up, stronger and stronger each time! So many have been willing to pay a great price to keep gathering together in worship and intercession for the future of the United States of America. Thank you that the Senate was retained in conservative hands, for they are the ones that will seat the next Justice of the Supreme Court. Prepare that person well—spiritually and emotionally, for the confirmation battle. We pray for each current Justice of the Court and ask You to bless them. Grant them a grace to know You better, regardless of how they relate to You today. Make room for those of Your own choosing on that Court. We ask this in Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

America’s Giants are falling!

A Fresh Word Over America

“America is Mine and no one is taking her from Me. My mercy has saved her from the hand of her enemy. My people and My dominion in this land will prevail over evil. We will not let our enemies rule and take this nation captive. The way is narrow and hard, but fear not, I’m the Lord of this transition. From heaven, I am drawing America out, and on earth My people are lifting her up to Me. Together, we win.  Fear not what you see or hear are works of the devil. Don’t try to do what I have already done. Stand form on My Word. I have defeated the devil. My works are mighty and My plans for America will prevail. The strategies of Satan will fail. Abortion, his strategy for death to rule, will fail. Satan’s strategies of racism and all divisions will fail. The Name of Jesus tears down all walls. America will stand as one nation under My rule. I have judged Satan for his works in this nation. Declare My judgement! Declare our rule and victory! All the enemy’s strategies to defeat and rule in every system, structure, and the culture in this nation will fail. Give Me the glory and I will give you America, our inheritance, and I will instruct you how to keep her in My Glory.” (Word of the Lord through Jean Steffenson.)1

Who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.” (Ephesians 1:14; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Remind yourself what the Lord has been doing for our nation in these last couple of years.
  • Choose to agree with the prophecy above—it is the Word of the Lord over America.
  • Declare the judgement of the Lord is falling mercilessly on Satan now. He is a defeated foe.
  • Declare the unity of the Bride. We must purposefully decide to walk in unity with other Believers.
  • Declare that the unity we have been pressed to choose will drive the enemy back!
  • Glorify His wonderful name, for He is the King of Glory over America!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, You have been moving Your bride forward into the time. You have moved Your Ekklesia forward until the strongholds that have been trying to turn this nation away from You will be dealt with. The prophecy said to declare Your judgments, Lord. We declare Your judgement over Satan and his kingdom. We say that You decreed that all authority belonged to You, and he has none! The Church has been praying and repenting. he Church has been walking with You through a season that is now allowing You to bring the full fruit of those things into the earth. We stand before You as one man. We come in the unity of the Spirit and the bond of peace. We come together to exalt Jesus over this nation. As we come together, the courses of darkness can have no power in this nation! We declare that You nation, this nation, shall truly be Your nation. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

We shall glorify the Lord over America!

Give Him 15 is joining a 40-day national call to prayer before the 2018 Midterm Elections. Here is today’s Focus:

PRAY IN UNITY

Day 40 – Election Day!

Let your Kingdom come. Let your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10; NHEB)

Voting is a spiritual act! It is the most practical act of stewarding the government sphere of God’s creation that we can make. God looked upon his creation, said that it was good, and assigned Adam the responsibility to steward His creation. The problem with the typical American Christian is that we have been convinced that government/politics is secular and we are not supposed to discuss these issues in church.

“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven,” is how Jesus taught the disciples to pray, showing them we should seek God’s will, His values, His government, here on earth, just like it is in heaven. A common phrase in our culture is, “you can’t legislate morality,” yet our government makes decisions that affect life and death, give the ability to express our religious preferences, punish criminals, guide the treatment of the foreigner, and many other similar matters. All are moral decisions that could be affected by our spiritual act of voting for candidates that best reflect God’s values.

We don’t always have the choice of a Christian candidate, but we should always understand the positions of the candidates and the parties they represent.

The Church will have the government it deserves. If the Church stays home on Election Day and allows evil people to vote in evil candidates, then we will have an evil government. Voting is a spiritual act of stewardship. Go out today, understand your candidates, pray, and then VOTE!

Points for Prayer:

Pray that the Church would understand and steward its spiritual obligations to vote.

Pray that the Church would vote in ways to elect quality candidates that reflect God’s values.

Pray that God’s kingdom would come on earth today, just as it is in heaven.

Day 39 – The Era of Jesus the Evangelist

“Then the king summoned Ziba, Saul’s steward, and said to him, ‘I have given your master’s grandson everything that belonged to Saul and his family. You and your sons and your servants are to farm the land for him and bring in the crops, so that your master’s grandson may be provided for. And Mephibosheth, grandson of your master, will always eat at my table.’” (2 Samuel 9:9-10; NIV)

For many years we have been praying, “I plead Your blood over my sins and over the sins of my nation. God, end abortion and send revival to America.” I actually believe that these things are possibly converging – the ending abortion and sending of revival – with what’s happening at the Supreme Court. We can’t afford to be asleep on the Supreme Court issue.

God has shown me that an “Esther movement” is coming. There will be a strong battle at the Court because the enemy can’t afford to lose Roe v. Wade. There will be a battle over the Senate to confirm a conservative justice. There will be a war over Kavanaugh and whether he can fulfill his purpose and not bend under the demonic pressure to keep Roe in place. We only want him confirmed if he is the one who can do this. We cannot leave things to chance. We can’t allow anything to stop the ending of Roe v. Wade and the saving of the nation.

We called a three-day Esther Fast beginning at sundown on 8/18 and continuing through sundown 8/21. It started immediately after Will Ford’s conference, 818: The Sign, which was a call to intercession to end racism and abortion in America. The Lord is awakening us now to receive decrees and commands. We’re on the verge of a third Great Awakening.

God has told me He is going to show mercy to the youth of America; they are the Mephibosheth generation (see 2 Samuel 9), who will sit at the table of Jesus. I believe we are about to send multitudes into the harvest fields of America and we’re in an incredible moment. This is the season of the Billy Graham mantle falling. We are entering the era of Jesus the Evangelist. It will be a season of mass awakening in America. We are calling 200,000 laborers into the harvest. We are asking for a harvest of the generation that has suffered the most losses from abortion.

Points for Prayer:

Pray this prayer: “I plead Your blood over my sins and over the sins of my nation. God, end abortion and send revival to America.”

Identificationally repent for the sin of abortion in America. (See Daniel 9:3-19 for an example of identificational repentance.)

Weep and mourn for over 60 million babies have been lost to abortion since Roe v. Wade was decided by the Supreme Court of the United States.1

Call forth the mantle of Jesus the Evangelist upon this generation.

Intercede for the harvest of souls from the generations touched so deeply by abortion in America.

Day 38 – A Season of Breakthrough

God will stand up and break through in their presence. Then they will pass through the gate, going out by it. Their king will pass in front of them with the Lord at their head.” (Micah 2:13; ISV)

Someone had a dream In August 2018 in which the Lord said, “By March 2019, it will be ‘all hands on deck’ in the United States because of the harvest that was beginning.”

I think we are in an incredibly strategic window where we have to pray like we haven’t prayed in quite some time. We have started well, but we need to finish well. I think that God is saying, “All hands on deck!” Good things are happening, but we can’t just assume they will continue. We have to press in until it’s finished. Lord, we thank You for all of these facets of what You are doing for this nation. We thank You for the many people and leaders and efforts that are underway to pray. Everyone has a strategic part.

As we move into this season leading up to the midterms, which we know are so significant, show us how to pray. The deep state is still in place in every branch of government. A Supreme Court Justice needs to be seated. We are asking You to give us the strategy, the wisdom, the understanding, the participation, and everything we need to turn the tide. Let this be the season of breakthrough that is so significant that it cannot be reversed. Let the fulfillment of all the promises come. Let the great breakthrough for this nation that You have already begun come to a crescendo. We pray for President Trump, our Congressional leaders, and our spiritual leaders. Let there be a synergy that takes place where the civil and spiritual leaders would be in agreement in ways that push this nation through, until it returns completely to God’s purposes. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Points for Prayer:

Thank the Lord for everything He is doing and causing to come together for such a time as this – many streams, many prayer efforts, every race working together, old and young.

Ask Him to provide everything the Church needs to work with Him to turn the tide in America.

Ask Him to expose, uproot, and wash away the “deep state” and all of its effects on our nation. Declare, “Purify our government, Lord!”

Call for the promises He has made to reseat our Supreme Court to be fulfilled.

Intercede for the President, Senators, Congressmen, and spiritual leaders. Call for an agreement between them where heaven and civil government align, so God’s purposes can quickly come to pass.

PRAY IN UNITY

Day 37 – The Advancing Prayer Movement

“Gather the people, consecrate the assembly; bring together the elders, gather the children, those nursing at the breast. Let the bridegroom leave his room and the bride her chamber.” (Joel 2:16; NIV)

Many are not aware that America was birthed in prayer. From the Pilgrims’ prayers as they landed at Plymouth to Benjamin Franklin’s call to prayer for Divine Assistance in the writing of the U. S. Constitution, prayer was a cornerstone of the nation’s founding. Men and women relied on God and sought Him as a part of the course of their daily events.

Prayer has surged in popularity off and on throughout our history, most notably in difficult seasons of time and just before the Great Awakenings and other major moves of God, such as the Jesus Movement of the late 1960s/early 1970s. The prayer movement most recently enjoyed a surge in the 1990s when prayer activities, such as the formation of numerous prayer groups in churches, prayer walking, prayer driving, prayer journeys, houses of prayer, and prayer-saturated churches, became the norm. However, the tide was moving out again in this decade. Long-time prayer warriors were growing weary, and the next generation did not seem to have the fire of their parents and grandparents.

Prior to the 2016 elections, God gave me a vision for an Appeal to Heaven Movement that would sweep a nation into prayer once again. We began to do Appeal to Heaven conferences across the nation, with an intent to go to all 50 states if need be, to ignite passion for prayer for national revival. Many prayer groups and prayer ministries were renewed. Prayer has continued to gain momentum, and a new unity across prayer ministries has come into being. God loves unity, and we have begun to see the effects of our unified prayer! Also, the Appeal to Heaven flag started to show up everywhere, including in government offices. It was even positioned behind President Trump when he gave one of his first speeches in office!

We must keep the fire of prayer going. We have made a shift, but America is not out of the woods yet! Government leaders are counting on us to keep praying! They have told me they can feel the difference when the church is praying and when it is not! Pray, Church, pray!

Points for Prayer:

Thank the Lord that America was founded in prayer and that Christ-honoring prayer is in the fabric of who we are as a nation.

Ask the Lord to stir passion for prayer up in you at a greater level.

Pray for the nation and its leaders today. You can go to whitehouse.gov, senate.gov, house.gov, supremecourt.gov, or many other government websites at the federal, state and local level to get information for prayer.

Worship the Lord over America. Worship and intercession go hand in hand.

Ask the Lord how to better connect with prayer groups at the local and national level. Start a group if there are none in your church and/or community.

Use Joel 2:16 and call for the intercessors in the United States to rise up!
