The Powers of the President

“While there may have been some differences among the Framers as to the precise scope of Executive power in particular areas, there was general agreement about its nature.  Just as the great separation-of-powers theorists – Polybius, Montesquieu, Locke – had, the Framers thought of Executive power as a distinct specie of power. To be sure, Executive power includes the responsibility for carrying into effect the laws passed by the Legislature – that is, applying the general rules to a particular situation. But the Framers understood that Executive power meant more than this.

“It also entailed the power to handle essential sovereign functions – such as the conduct of foreign relations and the prosecution of war – which by their very nature cannot be directed by a pre-existing legal regime but rather demand speed, secrecy, unity of purpose, and prudent judgment to meet contingent circumstances.  They agreed that – due to the very nature of the activities involved, and the kind of decision-making they require – the Constitution generally vested authority over these spheres in the Executive. For example, Jefferson, our first Secretary of State, described the conduct of foreign relations as “Executive altogether,” subject only to the explicit exceptions defined in the Constitution, such as the Senate’s power to ratify Treaties.

“A related, and third aspect of Executive power is the power to address exigent circumstances that demand quick action to protect the well-being of the Nation but on which the law is either silent or inadequate – such as dealing with a plague or natural disaster. This residual power to meet contingency is essentially the federative power discussed by Locke in his Second Treatise.

“And, finally, there are the Executive’s powers of internal management.  These are the powers necessary for the President to superintend and control the Executive function, including the powers necessary to protect the independence of the Executive branch and the confidentiality of its internal deliberations. Some of these powers are express in the Constitution, such as the Appointment power, and others are implicit, such as the Removal power.” (Attorney General Bill Barr)

“Every person must submit to and support the [governing] authorities over him. For there can be no authority in the universe except by God’s appointment, which means that every authority that exists has been instituted by God. So to resist authority is to resist the divine order of God, which results in severe consequences. For civil authorities don’t intimidate those who are doing good, but those who are doing evil. So do what is right and you’ll never need to fear those in authority. They will commend you for your good citizenship.” (Romans 13:1-3; TPT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Call the three branches of the U. S. government into constitutional order!
  • Read the following excerpts from Attorney General Bill Barr’s statement above as a decree. These are the duties and rights of a U. S. president as granted by the U. S. Constitution:
    • “Executive power includes the responsibility for carrying into effect the laws passed by the Legislature.”
    • “The President has the power to handle essential sovereign functions – such as the conduct of foreign relations and the prosecution of war, which demand speed, secrecy, unity of purpose, and prudent judgment to meet contingent circumstances.”
    • “The President has the power to address circumstances that demand quick action to protect the well-being of the Nation but on which the law is either silent or inadequate – such as dealing with a plague or natural disaster.”
    • “The President is the one to superintend and control the Executive function, including the powers necessary to protect the independence of the Executive branch and the confidentiality of its internal deliberations.”
  • Declare, “Any attempt by legislators who want President Trump removed from office for any reason that is within his right as the President and chief officer of the Executive branch will unravel through the impeachment hearings.”
  • Again today, ask the Lord to use this impeachment process to educate the U. S. citizenry on government, the roles of each branch of government, and the separation of the powers of each branch.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we call the three branches of the U. S. government into right order. We say that the powers given each one by the U. S. Constitution are the parameters they must operate within. The legislative branch can hold the president to account, if they operate outside of their constitutional role. So, we remind ourselves of the powers given to the President in the Constitution, as outlined by U. S. Attorney General Bill Barr: “Executive power includes the responsibility for carrying into effect the laws passed by the Legislature. The President has the power to handle essential sovereign functions – such as the conduct of foreign relations and the prosecution of war, which demand speed, secrecy, unity of purpose, and prudent judgment to meet contingent circumstances. The President has the power to address circumstances that demand quick action to protect the well-being of the Nation but on which the law is either silent or inadequate – such as dealing with a plague or natural disaster. The President is the one to superintend and control the Executive function, including the powers necessary to protect the independence of the Executive branch and the confidentiality of its internal deliberations.” Any attempt by legislators who want President Trump removed from office for any reason that is within his right as the President and chief officer of the Executive branch will unravel through the impeachment hearings. Lord, please let these hearings cause the American people to want to learn how our government functions. Highlight the Constitution. Grant us knowledge and the fear of the Lord. Amen.  

Today’s decree:

Let it be known that the Executive power of the President is given for the well-being of the nation!

The Foundations of Presidential Power

“The grammar school civics class version of our Revolution is that it was a rebellion against monarchical tyranny, and that, in framing our Constitution, one of the main preoccupations of the Founders was to keep the Executive weak. This is misguided. By the time of the Glorious Revolution of 1689, monarchical power was effectively neutered and had begun its steady decline. Parliamentary power was well on its way to supremacy and was effectively in the driver’s seat. By the time of the American Revolution, the patriots well understood that their prime antagonist was an overweening Parliament. Indeed, British thinkers came to conceive of Parliament, rather than the people, as the seat of Sovereignty. 

“During the Revolutionary era, American thinkers who considered inaugurating a republican form of government tended to think of the Executive component as essentially an errand boy of a Supreme legislative branch. Often the Executive (sometimes constituted as a multi-member council) was conceived as a creature of the Legislature, dependent on and subservient to that body, whose sole function was carrying out the Legislative will. Under the Articles of Confederation, for example, there was no Executive separate from Congress. 

“Things changed by the Constitutional Convention of 1787. To my mind, the real ‘miracle’ in Philadelphia that summer was the creation of a strong Executive, independent of, and coequal with, the other two branches of government.

“The consensus for a strong, independent Executive arose from the Framers’ experience in the Revolution and under the Articles of Confederation. They had seen that the War had almost been lost and was a bumbling enterprise because of the lack of strong Executive leadership. Under the Articles of Confederation, they had been mortified at the inability of the United States to protect itself against foreign impositions or to be taken seriously on the international stage. They had also seen that, after the Revolution, too many States had adopted constitutions with weak Executives overly subordinate to the Legislatures. Where this had been the case, state governments had proven incompetent and indeed tyrannical.

“From these practical experiences, the Framers had come to appreciate that, to be successful, Republican government required the capacity to act with energy, consistency and decisiveness. They had come to agree that those attributes could best be provided by making the Executive power independent of the divided counsels of the Legislative branch and vesting the Executive power in the hands of a solitary individual, regularly elected for a limited term by the Nation as a whole. As Jefferson put it, ‘[F]or the prompt, clear, and consistent action so necessary in an Executive, unity of person is necessary….’” (Attorney General Bill Barr)

“For the Lord shall be our judge, the Lord shall be our lawgiver, the Lord shall be our king; he himself will save us.” (Isaiah 33:22; JUB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Our three-branch republican form of government is based loosely on the three roles the Lord holds, as noted in Isaiah 33:22. Thank the Lord for the wisdom He gave our governmental framers as they sought Him.
  • Read carefully the civics lesson above. 
  • Pray that our U.S. citizens would be more interested in understanding our form of government and the role each of the three branches play—Executive, Legislative, and Judicial.
  • Intercede for the upholding of the U.S. Constitution’s powers given to the Executive branch and the Executive-in-Chief—the U.S. President.
  • Declare that Civics classes will return as a required class to U.S. schools. Who will take up the cause to write the courses?

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, You modeled within your own self the form of government that would become the form the United States follows today. We have a Republic, a three-branch system of checks and balances, Executive, Legislative, and Judicial, with both elected and appointed leaders. The Executive and Legislative are political (chosen by the people) and the Judicial is free from politics (appointed by the current sitting president). What a miracle it is. It has served us well for 243 years. So many Americans do not understand that we are a Republic, because civics is no longer taught in most schools. If they don’t understand our form of government, then they won’t understand things like the powers given to each branch. They also won’t understand the checks and balances the Constitution grants to each branch. In other words, what politicians say in the media is what people are going to believe. How can they know if the president is overstepping his boundaries? How can they know what the Congress can appropriately hold the president accountable for? Lord, bring us back to honoring the U. S. Constitution and the wisdom in its words! Bring back civics courses nationally, so our next generation of students will understand our replublican form of government. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The full powers of the U. S. Presidency will be not be diminished or overridden by a renegade Congress!

What Fruit Will Our Nation Bring Forth?

“I think we are going to need to determine what fruit will be brought forth from this nation. We are going to need to intercede in a way that brings forth that fruit. We are going to need to act in a way that develops that fruit. There is a spiritual war surrounding President Trump. However, even if President Trump died tomorrow, there would still be a war to uproot God’s covenant plan. It’s not just about President Trump. It’s about God’s covenant plan in this land. We need our nation to come forth in a way that displays who we really are. The deep state wants to make us be something else. That means your freedom over God’s covenant blessing would be harmed. So, how we move forward is key. We have to pray for our president, as the Lord commands us to pray for our president. 

“When we pray for the president, it’s not just about that person. It’s about the structure that person represents. I have prayed for every president. One of the meanings of visitation is ‘how we cast our vote’. How you vote is how you’re visited. Therefore it is really important how we pray for Mr. Trump. I feel if he can be uprooted out of time, then there will be a shifting away from certain natural freedoms, then spiritual freedoms can be uprooted. We need to stand and say what the Lord says.” (Chuck Pierce) 

“Righteousness lifts up a nation, but sin is a disgrace in any society.” (Proverbs 14:34; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Write down or say out loud what fruit you feel needs to come from this nation. You might say things like righteousness, justice, truth, racial equality, life, care for the poor, etc.
  • Now, write down or say the things you see the enemy wanting to develop. Abortion, sex-trafficking, socialism, and sexual promiscuity come to mind. 
  • Intercede between what is and ought to be in America regarding the things you believe should be the fruit of America.
  • Declare, “The Deep State will not prevent the fruit that God would approve from developing. We will not allow things that break our national covenant with God.”
  • Pray for President Donald J. Trump. 

A prayer you can pray:

Father, the enemy is working hard to uproot the covenant You made with this nation. He has a plan and agenda for America and it is not anything like the one You have. He has a need to get rid of You and your precepts in order to get his plan furthered. That’s what all the division is about. That’s what all the attack against President Trump is about. It’s a spiritual war that has come into the natural realm. It’s been going on a long time, but now it is really heating up. The enemy thought he was really close to uprooting us completely from Your plan, but Donald Trump’s election changed all that. Things are slowly reversing and those supporting the shift away from our covenant roots cannot stand it! It seems they will stop at nothing until they uproot that covenant. But, we, Your intercessory army, will stand strong in prayer to uphold it. The Deep State will not prevent the fruit that God would approve from developing. We will not allow things that break our national covenant with God. We will correct our words and actions to line up with Your Word. We will preach Your gospel with boldness and see a harvest of souls come in. Those new Christians will help move us toward righteousness. They will be on fire and will demand Your principles be cultural and governmental. It is already happening. We ask for your protection over President Trump and that You continue to use him to rock the boat and keep this nation moving toward the fulfillment of that covenant You made with us. We must have spiritual freedom to fulfill our nation’s calling. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will fight for our natural freedoms, so our spiritual freedoms are maintained!

America as a Fig Tree

“The Lord spoke to me from a parable in Luke 13:6-9, ‘He also spoke this parable: “A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and found none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?’ But he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it. And if it bears fruit, good. But if not, after that you can cut it down.’”’ God showed me America as a fig tree. He spoke to me from this parable that there would be an attempt in the third year of the Trump presidency to pull the fig tree up by the roots and look at the fruit of America from that perspective. You have to remember that America is not the same as it was when the nation was founded. So, the Lord said clearly that there would be an attempt to pull up what President Trump represented and to have that removed. I then saw that it was an attempt for him to be impeached. To be clear, the Lord showed me there would be an attempt to impeach President Trump in his third year in office. 

“I believe God is currently digging around this whole nation. I think He is saying, ‘How do you want to bring forth this nation? How are you going to bring forth this nation?’ God is saying this to lead us to pray the way that is needed going into this 4th year. It’s about the fruit this nation will produce. It’s about how we seek out what God wants us to bring forth. God doesn’t do anything without first telling the prophets. God is clearly saying, ‘Leave it alone and don’t uproot it. Let’s fertilize it with prayer and see if it bears fruit in the 4th year.” (Chuck Pierce)

“‘Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree corrupt and its fruit corrupt; for the tree is known by its fruit.’” (Matthew 12:33; WEB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Consider the parable of the fig tree. Consider the words the Lord spoke to the prophet, Chuck Pierce. Consider America’s covenant roots.
  • Decide how you are going to intercede. What is the Lord wanting us to participate in? What decision is He making about America. Rightly divide in prayer.
  • Do not let the enemy limit your freedom. Don’t let comments made in the press or by influential people limit your freedom. 
  • Find God’s heart for this nation and intercede!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we speak against the uprooting, the premature uprooting. Don’t let this presidency be uprooted in this third year. We say, “it will not be uprooted this year.” We say there will be such a godly work done instead in this year. Let our voices get louder and louder. Let our expressions of freedom get louder and louder. Lord, we ask You to intervene in some way in the uprooting that is going on in this land. It’s not just about a man. It’s about the uprooting of a righteous root. We can’t allow that. We can’t allow the enemy to shift America away from Your purposes. We won’t break covenant with You, though many others have. 

Today’s decree:

America’s covenant root with God will not be uprooted!

New Authority in Prophetic Proclamations

The whole prophetic movement is going to a new level. The role of the prophetic is changing. It is the era of the saints movement and the Lord is putting the sword of His Word in the mouths of His people. The Church hasn’t been  standing in faith for full manifestations of the Holy Spirit. We haven’t opened our mouths and prophesied outcomes. Instead, we have petitioned the Lord. That has not been incorrect, because God tells us to ask. However, a day comes when we are to decree a thing. We need to decree a thing as if it has already come to pass, because in the heart of God it already has. This will take us to a new higher level of faith. It is a level that will surprise and shock you. God has had some prophets in a season of travail and birthing, and now the manifestation of those years of hidden intercession will be seen. 

Don’t be surprised at spiritual attacks that come. The enemy wants to devour this new movement. It’s coming so fast, the prophetic gift will be on so many, and prophets are going to be so accurate, that the enemy is afraid. God won’t have you intercede to the point of birth and not give birth. What He said is coming is coming!

God has raised up those that are able to prophesy over presidents and future presidents of nations. He has brought up those who can prophesy to marketplace, government, and media leaders. It is time for the prophets to prophesy to the kings. We are going to see a clear and definite shift from “Sunday and Wednesday” prophets to “9 to 5” prophets. Prepare for the culture-shift. These prophetic voices will arise with the confidence with Elijah. They are emerging with great confidence and boldness and the world will see God and the power of Jesus Christ.

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and terrible day of Yahweh comes. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” (Malachi 4:5-6; WEB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Call for the prophets to multiply themselves, to teach and train the saints in the release of the Word of the Lord.
  • Call for all the saints of the Most High to get up and prophesy the Word of the Lord.
  • Call for the release of the Word of the Lord with accuracy and manifestations of the Holy Spirit.
  • Call forth the prophetic voices into the marketplace, government, education and the media.
  • Believe for societal shifts as the army of God arises with God’s two-edged sword in their mouths.

A prayer you can pray:

God, we are excited to be in the saints movement. It is time for all of the people to prophesy. Let Your prophets rise up and equip and train. Let them lead the way and show forth the faith needed, the boldness needed, and the grace needed to prophesy what You have said and are saying. Let Your words in the mouths of the prophets create. Let the prophecies manifest quickly. Let the enemy start shaking in his boots, because the army of God is rising with the Word of the Lord in their mouths. Let the saints rise up and move from asking to declaring. Let the decrees be decreed! Multitudes of voices all speaking and declaring the Word of the Lord. What exciting days You have brought us to, Lord. 

What days are these where prophetic words come to pass quickly. Where accuracy is heightened and faith is rising to speak the Words, and then the Words cause faith to rise further! These are the days that the saints of old longed to see! They spoke of these days, and now we get to live them. Do not let us be complacent now. Not now! Now is the time to rise and speak and act. Now is the time for the prophets to be released into the arenas of influence—government, business, education, media, and arts and entertainment, in addition to church and family. Let the earth respond to the rising tide of prophecy that is about to hit it like a tsunami. Let the purposes of God come to pass in the earth, even as they do in heaven, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Your words matter! Prophecy and decree the Word of the Lord. Shift and change the environment around you!

How We Can Pray Regarding the Impeachment Hearings

Public impeachment hearings began today against President Trump. Both sides of the political fence were proclaiming victory on this first day. William Taylor, Acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, and George Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary at the State Department, testified. Liberals were saying they presented a strong case that President Trump overstepped his boundaries of authority.  Additionally, they say he withheld funds to get compliance from the Ukrainian President Zelensky. Conservative commentators are saying there were few actual facts presented. Rather, there was a lot of hearsay and unprovable statements. They also presented counter-statements saying that the withholding of funds was not done to get Ukraine to comply, and that President Zelensky never knew the funds were being withheld. We think the hearings are meant to sway public opinion against President Trump, as no witnesses have been approved by the Democrats who can testify against the “whistleblower”. 

Please continue to pray into these hearings, separating truth from falsehood. The next one is Friday, 11/15, when Marie Yovanovitvh, Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, will testify. You can write your U.S. Representative here and ask for fair and just hearings with witnesses for both sides allowed to be questioned. There is an additional prayer guide you can obtain through that link, as well, which gives you specifics on who is testifying, who is on the committee holding the hearings, and other issues. Take advantage of it!

“There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.” (Proverbs 6:16-19; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray for every aspect of the hearings.
  • Boldly declare Proverbs 6:16-19.
  • Say, “We proclaim the opposite spirit into the hearings: humility, truthfulness, a desire to bring healing to the nation, the unveiling of wicked schemes, desires in the witnesses to do good for the country, truth-telling witnesses, and those who can minister a peaceful resolution of these matters.”
  • Get the prayer guide here and pray for the committee members.
  • Pray for President Trump and his family through this trial. Pray for their physical, emotional and spiritual health and well-being.  

A prayer you can pray:

God Most High, You are the one that sees the end from the beginning. You know the outcome of this trial the president is in. It is a very challenging moment in a very challenging presidency. His opponents have put him through one thing after the other to try to get his election reversed, his presidency annulled, get him removed from office, and now, to keep him from being re-elected. It’s like nothing we have witnessed ever before in history. President Trump has done much for life, for religious freedom, for the economy and the American worker. We don’t discount sin. However, we won’t tolerate false accusations against him, either. Separate truth from falsehood. Twisting of truth is not truth. Partial truth is not truth. The full truth is what we are all after and we say, “The full truth is what we will get!” Both sides will have a voice! We will not tolerate injustice or a kangaroo court where minds are made up in one direction and only witnesses to back that mindset are presented. No! 

There are six things You hate, seven that are detestable to You: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community. We proclaim the opposite spirit into the hearings: humility, truthfulness, a desire to bring healing to the nation, the unveiling of wicked schemes, desires in the witnesses to do good for the country, truth-telling witnesses, and those who can minister a peaceful resolution of these matters. Protect the president and his family from the effect of these attacks. Let Your precious blood, Jesus, protect their minds, bodies, emotions, and spirits. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Lord reverse the things You hate in the impeachment hearings!

Speaking the Words of God

We have entered a prophetic era of the mouth. Waves of the word of God released by His people will go forth. We will shape history with our words. There will be a sea of words. There will be a supernatural anointing of power on the words that will be released. The enemy has released many words. He releases lies, words that confuse, and words that discourage, even cause destruction. Those words have caused the environment in the nation to be treacherous and destructive. God is calling His people to release words of life and peace. We can set up an atmosphere of grace and peace, filling the land with love and mercy, life and peace. We are entering a great season where our words matter. We can surround ourselves with waves of blessing, or a storm surge that holds the blessings back. Release blessings and life. Plant what God wants. Speak the opposite of what the enemy is speaking. Choose the right words. They can be very strong words! They can be warring words. Remember, words were used to entrap Jesus, but he had wisdom and life and His words shut the mouth of his accusers. 

“And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” (Isaiah 40:5; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Know that God has a plan to release His Words into the nation – through you!
  • Ask Him to fill your mouth with His word, so you can participate in it. Don’t be one who resists this for political or religious reasons.
  • Pray for any you know who are speaking unrighteous, ungodly, hateful words into the atmosphere. They may be Christians. They may be atheists, or anything in between.
  • Spiritually arrest the words of those who oppose Christ, who are opposing His people and His plan. Call them to repentance and salvation.
  • Get out your Bible, find a strong passage of scripture and declare and decree it!

A prayer you can pray:

God, You are filling the mouths of Your Church with Your Words. You are not just having us read Your Word, but You want us to declare Your Word. You want to offset the atmosphere being set by the enemy moving through his cohorts, who are speaking confusion, fear, doubt and destruction into the nation. People are not sure what to believe. They can’t tell truth from falsehood. However, it is the decade to speak. It is the time for Your people to declare and decree Your words. We are going to cause a counter wave of the Word of Lord, which will invade the atmosphere with Your will, Your glory, Your love, and Your mercy. Stop Your people from agreeing with the accuser of the brethren. Stop them, Lord. Let Your fear fall on us, so we stop and find Your Words and speak them, instead. Let us verbally uproot, tear down, destroy, overthrow, build and plant. Shift America with the sword of the Word, Jesus, living Word of God. Amen

Today’s decree:

The Word of God in the mouth of the saints will shift the atmosphere of America!

Veterans Day 2019

I want to do something very special for Veterans Day today. I want to introduce you to a spiritual son of mine and Ceci’s. His name is Major (Ret.) Bill Ostan, U.S. Army, and he is a veteran. We have known Bill since before he married his beautiful wife, Jen, who was a member of our church in Colorado Springs. Today, they have twin daughters and reside just outside Washington, D.C. Bill has a unique story. He has had to be medically discharged from the Army. His experience in fighting for his health against a battlefield-contracted disease and ensuing government red tape has led him to start a nonprofit to help other wounded veterans. It is called “Arc of Justice” and it is being launched today. 

In this video, Bill describes the need. He says, “I am a military attorney with  service in special operations, therefore I was able to [advocate for myself]. However, most active duty wounded warriors cannot advocate for themselves. That’s why we need your help to pass the ‘Wounded Warrior’s Bill of Rights’.” Arc of Justice’s website says, “Let’s fight for those who fought for us.” #FIGHT4HEROES

Arc of Justice is not just about access to healthcare. It is also about justice for those who are wounded in service to our country. Please click here to watch a short video about the Arc of Justice project and learn the specifics of why the need exists and what you can do to help our wounded warriors. Here is the website, where you can find “5 Key Points of Participation”. You can make a donation to Arc of Justice here

“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray for wounded U.S. soldiers, both at home and abroad, active duty and veterans.
  • Intercede for the advocacy of Arc of Justice. Pray for other groups you know that assist wounded warriors in getting the care they need, as well.
  • Begin to pray now that the “Wounded Warriors Bill of Rights” will get the support it deserves and  the right connections to get it passed in the U.S. Congress.
  • Pray for Bill, Jen, and their two precious daughters. Ask the Lord to heal Bill.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, today we want to honor our veterans. We bless them for their service to all of us. Please minister to those who have become sick or wounded as they have served. We are so thankful for groups, such as Arc of Justice, which have been established to advocate for our wounded warriors. Give them grace and favor to do everything they have set their heart to do. We pray for Retired Major Bill Ostan, as he works to get a “Wounded Warrior’s Bill of Rights” passed to help our servicemen and women. We don’t want to see another generation of homeless wounded veterans on our streets because of lack of proper medical care or access to it. Holy Spirit, blow Your wind of favor on this Bill of Rights. Bring in the thousands of supporters it needs. Put it on Your divine timeline and get it before the exact right legislators, so it can get passed quickly.  We want our generation to be the one that finally helps our veterans and wounded soldiers get the honor and care they deserve. We are the generation of the grateful, in Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

We bless America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve all for the common good!

The Glory!

“The glory of God isn’t just a feeling, an event or an Old Testament experience—it’s a spiritual tsunami of everything contained in the character of God. It has been called the manifested presence of God, but more than just a presence, it’s power. The kind of power that resurrects, delivers, overcomes and transforms. It is greater and stronger than any other power in existence. And it belongs to us.

Maybe you feel like the glory of God is untouchable, unreachable or reserved for special church services. But, the power of God is available to you 24/7—to manifest in your life, your church and your country.” (Kenneth Copeland)

Here are some scriptures put together to give us a beautiful picture of God’s Glory: 

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims Your handiwork. Jesus is the Word that became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. The glory that you gave Jesus, You have given to us, that we may be one even as You are one. You, O Lord, are a shield about us, our glory, and the lifter of our heads. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. For from You and through You and to You are all things. To You be glory forever.

“Jesus said to her, ‘Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?’” (John 11:40; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank God for His Glory!
  • Look up all the scriptures you can find on His Glory and declare them out loud. 
  • Declare His Glory is coming to America!
  • See the Glory fill homes and churches and schools, and businesses. See it fill the streets and government buildings, TV and radio stations, and sporting events.
  • Worship Him in the Glory that falls as you make those declarations.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we thank You for the oil of Your Glory! Lord, spray the oil of Your Glory all over this nation. Let that oil seep into every neighborhood. Let it seep into homes. Let it seep into government buildings. It’s going to flow through campuses and universities, high schools and grade schools. It’s going to go into churches that are dry. It’s going to rejuvenate people who have grown spiritually dry and become bound up. It’s going to penetrate and restore marriages. This nation is going to be saturated with the oil of the Father’s Glory. We call forth the Zoe Life of God. Let Your Glory cause life to spring forth everywhere, Lord. Nothing can hold Your Glory back when You decide to pour it out. It effects change wherever it shines forth. Individuals are changed, marriages are changed, churches are changed, cities are changed, nations are changed. Let the Glory of the Lord wash through our nation from sea to shining sea in Jesus Name. Amen.  

Today’s decree:

Let America be filled with the Glory of the Lord!

Air Superiority Has Been Established

I was ministering recently in Jacksonville, FL. A ministry leader there told me that the Huguenots had landed there. Centuries ago, they had come and established a stronghold of righteousness in the nation on that shore. This was the place from which the Gospel was first preached in America, the first convert we know of on this soil came to Christ, and the first Believer was martyred there, as well.  He went on to say that many Christians had discerned that a demonic principality over America ruled from there now. A holy and deep well had been eventually taken over by the enemy. So, the Christians that had discerned this stronghold began a systematic strategy to gather there 3 or 4 times a week to pray against it. 

Soon after they had started systematically praying over that stronghold was when I went there to minister on a Sunday morning. Before I arrived, I didn’t know any of this was going on. The man that went with me had a dream the night before I ministered. He didn’t know anything, either. In his dream, the U.S.S. Ford, which is America’s newest aircraft carrier, was being commissioned. It had actually been commissioned that week. It is three and a half football fields long. It is a city on the water. The world has never known a weapon like that ship. It can quickly move fighter jets and their pilots exactly where they are needed. It is the epitome of air superiority. In my friend’s dream, President Trump sent the U.S.S. Ford up a river. It couldn’t navigate a turn in the river and the water was also not deep enough there, so the ship got stuck—at the exact spot where the Huguenots had landed. Remember, this was also where they discerned this ruling spirit was operating from. 

In the dream, reporters and others were giving the President grief for his decision. They were criticizing him and saying things like, “Why would you send this huge ship up this river? You should have known it would get stuck.” The president replied, “I sent it up there, because a Christian pastor and leader asked me for it. And, it’s not leaving there until he’s finished with it.” Here’s what I heard the Lord say, “The praying Church has now established air superiority over the enemy in America.” When you have air superiority, you win the war.  

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12; ESV)

“The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” (James 5:16b; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Acknowledge that God has given the Church air superiority. Intercessors are going to go in to the exact right place at the exact right time and pray the exact right prayers, and the enemy will be removed quickly! 
  • Ask God for the clear revelation and discernment needed to remove the enemy from places where he has been given access by the population in the past.
  • Say, “The Lord said we now have air superiority. It is now time for those strongholds that have been established for centuries, even millenia, to be broken through in the power of Jesus’ Name.”
  •  Declare, “Whom the Son sets free is free indeed!”

A prayer you can pray:

God, we acknowledge that we are legally seated with Christ in the heavenly places. We have also come to a fullness of time where You are saying that You have situated things in the earth through the praying Church. You are saying it is the right time for us to break through. You are telling us that You are going to expose the giants. You are going to show us what we need to see, and enable us to go in, take out those giants and transform those places. You are going to show us how to set up or restore strongholds of righteousness on the earth once again. You are saying that we now have air superiority. It is now time for those strongholds that have been established for centuries, even millenia, to be broken through in the power of Jesus’ Name. People that have sat in darkness for centuries are going to see a great Light. Whom the Son sets free is free indeed! We thank You for the Divine Glory! We thank You for the completion that is coming! Be glorified, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Strongholds are coming down in key locations in America!
