A Heart of Thanksgiving

It’s time we put away our religious vocabulary and religious thoughts of how to approach the throne of grace and just get there! Aren’t you tired and weary of trying to please God, yet? You please Him! He is working behind the scenes on your behalf! Nothing you can do can make Him love you more than He already massively does! So, now our place is to be thankful! Thankful for everything – all we have, our circumstances, our relationships, our opportunities. Thank Him and enjoy Him!

“Be thankful. Let Christ’s Word with all its wisdom and richness live in you. Use psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to teach and instruct yourselves about God’s kindness. Sing to God in your hearts. Everything you say or do should be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Colossians 3:15c-17; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Repent for letting religion get in the way of a deep relationship between you and Him. Thank Him for His amazing love for you!
  • Ask Him for a revelation of His goodness to you – His Glory manifest toward you. Worship Him when you get it.
  • Pray Colossians 3:15c-17. Pray it again and make it personal saying, “I will be thankful! I will let…”
  • Now start thanking Him for everything you can think to thank Him for and may your life be forever changed.

A prayer you can pray:

“Father, we pray over the heart of the Church. We ask you to forgive us for everything in our lives that has kept You from coming in the way You want to come. Help us as Your Church to draw near to You with our hearts and not just our minds. We need a revelation of Your Glory, which is the goodness of God. How good You are! May we have words of thanksgiving flowing out of our mouths day and night! Thank you, Jesus! Amen.” (Cheryl Sacks)1

Today’s decree:

Thanksgiving to Him for all things will flow out of my mouth on a constant daily basis!

Well-Re-diggers Become Well-Carriers

Our nation’s religious history is full of men and women of God that carried wells of revival and evangelism. From Jonathan Edwards and John Wesley to A. A. Allen, Kathryn Kuhlman and Billy Graham, we have noted well-carriers. Well-carriers are those with deep revival and evangelism wells in them who are not afraid to go splashing around wherever God takes them. Miracle signs and salvations and healings follow them. Notice that most well-carriers comfortably ministered outside of the established church. Tell the Lord you are willing to go wherever He sends you. Let’s re-dig those revival wells in America and become well-carriers!

“He dug out the wells that had been dug during his father Abraham’s lifetime. The Philistines had filled them in after Abraham’s death. He gave them the same names that his father had given them.” (Genesis 26:18; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Tell the Lord that you want to be one who re-digs the revival wells of our nation’s past.
  • Learn who those revivalists were and remind the Lord as you pray: Billy Graham had a well of mass evangelism, A. A. Allen had a well of healing, and William Brannan had a well of miracles flowing. Here is a good list to get you started.
  • Say to the wells, “Come alive!”
  • If there is a capped well in you, cry out to the Lord to uncap it! Be specific in your request of the Lord and get ready to walk in it – outside the walls of church buildings!

A prayer you can pray:

“Lord, we re-dig the wells of healing. We decree that the wells of healing begin to rise forth and we say to the wells that A. A. Allen dug, begin to come forth! We tap into the wells of William Brannan and Billy Graham. Begin to awaken in Jesus’ name! We say to those wells, “Come Alive!” Signs and wonders and miracles! Mass evangelism! We tap into those wells right now. We tap into the wells of miracles and of the prophetic. We pull that movement from the 50’s into today.” (Ken Malone)1

Today’s decree:

We will plow in prayer until we have re-dug the wells of revival from our nation’s past!

People are the Miraculous Signs

We are to be signs and wonders and miracles. We are to ask for the release of signs, wonders and miracles. Let’s ask for blind eyes opened, both spiritually and physically. Let’s ask for deaf ears to opened, both spiritually and physically. Let’s ask for demons to be cast out, literally. People will become the sign of the turnaround. There will be ex-homosexuals, ex-felons, ex-gang-bangers, ex-adulterers, ex-hypocrites and ex-religious ones. People are being raised up by God to be the signs of the miraculous being revealed! (Will Ford, III)1

“Watch out! I and the children whom the LORD has given me are a sign and a wonder in Israel from the LORD of the Heavenly Armies, who resides on Mount Zion.” (Isaiah 8:18; ISV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • How do we miss passages of scripture such as Isaiah 8:18? Thank the Lord that you are a sign and a wonder! Ask Him to show you how this is and take a few minutes to listen carefully.
  • Do what Will Ford said and ask for blind eyes to be opened, both spiritually and physically, and for deaf ears to be opened, both spiritually and physically, that people might see Jesus as their Savior and Lord and King.
  • Think about everyone you know who is caught up in a lifestyle of sin, entrapped by the enemy. Now, call them miracles – ex-somethings. Rename them their new miracle names!

A prayer you can pray:

Dear, Lord, Father God, what a revelation awaits me today! I am made to be a miracle! Show me the fullness of how that is. My children are destined to be signs and wonders, showing forth the reality of a living God! Lord, open blind eyes! Open deaf ears! Cause us to see and hear You, Holy Spirit, so that You can lead us and use us to deliver others! I call for those I know to be signs and wonders, too! (Name them by name and give them a new miracle name!) In Jesus’ wonderful and mighty transforming Name! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I am called to be a miraculous sign and a wonder of the power of God!

Even as Esther

Esther, the bride of the king, was instrumental in bringing an override to an evil decree that would destroy the people of God. Her decree was an override that led to a landslide victory of what God wanted to accomplish to put His people in power. God is waking His Church up so that, as we decree and shift things in the spirit realm today, there is a natural action that will be taken. The Church will rise up and will go to the voting booth and into the city council meetings and will stand in the gap and will say, “The righteous will rule this nation by the stewarding of their vote and by finding their voice at the exact right time.”

“The king extended his gold scepter to Esther. She got to her feet and stood before the king. She said, ‘If it please the king and he regards me with favor and thinks this is right, and if he has any affection for me at all, let an order be written that cancels the bulletins authorizing the plan of Haman son of Hammedatha the Agagite to annihilate the Jews in all the king’s provinces. How can I stand to see this catastrophe wipe out my people? How can I bear to stand by and watch the massacre of my own relatives?’ King Xerxes said to Queen Esther and Mordecai the Jew: ‘I’ve given Haman’s estate to Esther and he’s been hanged on the gallows because he attacked the Jews. So go ahead now and write whatever you decide on behalf of the Jews; then seal it with the signet ring.’” (Esther 8:4-8; MSG)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Did you know that the Church has authority to overthrow evil decrees? I wonder if some of what we are dealing with as cities, states and a nation is because we don’t know to do this? Acknowledge to God that if Esther could overthrow an evil decree on behalf of her people, you can too!
  • Ask Holy Spirit to tell you what evil law you can overthrow with your biblical decree. Decree it now!
  • Worship the Lord for hearing your decree and know that He will do it at the exact right time!
  • If you are not registered to vote – do it now! Find out how to register in your state here.
  • Ask your pastor if you can do everything possible to get the congregation 100% registered and voting. Learn how here. Ask those who are registered to pledge to vote here for those aligned with biblical principles.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, Esther was a very brave woman. She faced death before an earthly king in order to ask for a reversal of an evil decree in order to save her people. Save me and save my people, Lord! The enemy has altered things governmentally in this nation in order to keep You and your people silent and impotent in education, in government in media and many other spheres of society. It is time for a reversal of these evil laws, so I make decrees to reserve them, Lord! (Make some!) Also, I will vote and will get as many others registered and pledged to vote, as I can. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

My decrees based on the promises of God to the Church will be answered by God, so I will decree decrees! I will also vote and get others to vote, as well!

Three Things That Are Happening Now

Angels are being released in all states to do three things right now. The first thing they are doing is putting a hook in the jaw of the prodigals. The prodigals are coming home! The second thing they are doing is putting a hook in the jaw of new converts. And the third thing they are doing is connecting evangelists to the New Testament Church. (Tim Sheets)1

“Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth—to every nation, tribe, language and people.” (Revelation 14:6; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare that millions of prodigals are being drawn by the Spirit of God back to the Father! Name those you know by name.
  • Declare that billions of lost souls are coming into the Kingdom of God now!
  • Call for the spirit of the evangelist to mantle many in the Kingdom, including those that have been prodigals and those new to the Kingdom!
  • Shout, “GREAT HARVEST OF SOULS BEGIN!!” at the top of your lungs!

A prayer you can pray:

God, we declare that the prodigals by the multiplied thousands are coming home. Sons and daughters are coming home! We call for (name those you know by name) to come home to the Father’s House! Some of the greatest preachers are now prodigals or yet to know You, Lord. We declare that new converts are coming. We decree that the greatest exodus will not be a million souls out of Egypt, but a billion souls brought out of darkness in to the Kingdom of God! We call for the evangelists to rise up! In Jesus’ powerful name! Amen.1

Today’s decree:

Angel armies go to work and throw those hooks in the jaws of the lost and the prodigals and draw them into the Kingdom of God! We decree the Great Harvest of Souls begun!

Doctrines of Demons

Besides the worship of other gods being popular in the United States today, twisted doctrines about Christ form the basis of other false religions here. Designed to look a lot like Christianity, these “doctrines of demons” are seductive, leading men away from Christ, rather than to Him. Promises are made that “tickle men’s ears.” But the fruit is an eternity separated from Jesus, the one that loves us so much!

“But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8-9; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Come to the Lord weeping and mourning for those lost when they think they are safe. They really believe they will be with Jesus for eternity, but they do not know Him as the one and only Son of God and Savior.
  • This kind of deception is tough to break. Intercede for revelation to come to those whose minds have embraced the enemy’s lies. Command light to penetrate the dark, blind places in their spirit.
  • Bind spirits of false doctrines, those lying religious spirits! Command them to let their captives go free in the name of Jesus!
  • Pray again today that God’s Holy Spirit will reveal Jesus to the deceived.
  • And also pray again today that the light of Jesus Christ will permeate their beings and they will know the Truth and the Truth will set them free!

A prayer you can pray:

Jesus! You have paid a dear price in laying down Your life for the wicked and the mocking and the deceived. You and only You have shed Your blood, died and have been resurrected from the dead by the Father. You and only You can claim equality with God the Father and Holy Spirit—Holy Trinity. Light, shine in the darkness! Darkness, you cannot overcome the Light! Light of Christ reveal Yourself to those trapped in the darkness. Let them finally see You, know You and love You, the one they thought they knew all along. Salvation, come! Amen!

Today’s decree:

Jesus will deliver those deceived by false doctrines and deliver them into His glorious light and truth and eternal salvation!

The Melting Pot

The United States is a melting pot of people groups. It has always been this way. William Penn and other founders of our nation welcomed the people of the nations to this land. God brings them and we want them. We want them to come here and find Christ. We must be ready! We must be ready to tell them about Jesus and know how to deliver them from demons they have often served all of their lives in other parts of the world. Holy Spirit, draw them! Holy Spirit make us ready!

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God.” (Exodus 20:4-5a; ESV)

“Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.” (1 Timothy 4:1; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Let your heart break, for there are vast numbers of souls in this nation that serve other gods. Ask the Lord for the words to pray for them.
  • Bind spirits of false religions. Tell them they must loose their captives in America.
  • Pray that God’s Holy Spirit will reveal Jesus to the deceived.
  • Pray that the light of Jesus Christ will permeate their beings and they will know the Truth and the Truth will set them free!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we ask You to reveal Jesus to those deceived by false religions. We bind spirits of deception. We bind the spirits of false religions that are deceiving many. We say, “You are not welcome in this nation! We lift the veil off this nation. We say, “The Spirit of Truth will invade this nation. The Spirit of the Word of God will invade this nation.” Nothing will stop Him! In the name of Jesus, amen!

Today’s decree:

The Truth, Jesus Christ, will be revealed in greater and greater measure and many blinded by spirits of false religion will be invaded by the Truth!

God is Ready

It doesn’t take a spiritual giant in the faith to see what God is doing right now. We hear of awakening in West Virginia and Kentucky and California and other places. Spontaneous or purposeful, God is moving supernaturally on large numbers of people in transformative ways. The miracles will grow and grow—just watch! You know how I know? Because the miracles and salvations are happening outside the walls of church buildings. God is moving in the streets like He did when Jesus walked the earth.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:18-19; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • We are to be “like Christ”, so declare Luke 4:18-19 over yourself the same way Jesus did! Feel Him mantle you with His mantle of authority to walk as He walked.
  • Ask God to pour out His Spirit through you. Ask Him to pour out Holy Spirit in your community. If He is doing it in West Virginia, why not where you are?
  • Walk around your neighborhood and pray for your neighbors. Ask the Lord for opportunities to be a vessel of His outpouring there. Look around and notice things you haven’t noticed before. Greet people you haven’t greeted before. If you see an opportunity to help someone, do it and ask them if you can pray for them when you’re done. Miracles often start this simply!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You are ready to pour out Your Spirit. We believe that the pockets of awakening we have been seeing are firstfruits offerings of what is about to become something broad. The scope of it will be huge! We ask that You tip that bowl right now. Begin to pour out revival. Pour it out through me right here in my neighborhood. Signs, wonders, miracles, radical deliverances. Out there under bridges, in houses, backyards, businesses, family room, home groups, living rooms, family rooms and cars—we’re asking You to come. Come, Lord Jesus, one and Only King. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is ready to pour out His Spirit in a great outpouring changing us and changing our cities and nation!

The Cry for Awakening

I have been listening to everything I can find on the topics of revival and awakening. I’m priming the pump! I don’t want to just dream of it and pray about it. I want to live it! So, I’m immersing myself in it as often as I can. If not in the prayer room and at corporate events, then by YouTube videos—I’m soaking it up and taking it out into my daily life. I am going to live in an atmosphere of awakening and I will see God pour out His Spirit, change lives and revive this nation!

“O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water.” (Psalm 63:1; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Determine to set an atmosphere for revival in your home or room or office or car – somewhere where you can soak in the presence of God.
  • Prime the pump and cry out for awakening and revival just like the blind man in Luke 18:38!
  • Remind the Lord of what you have heard Him say about His fresh outpouring in our day!
  • Remind Him of all the sin and corruption and cold-heartedness in our nation and ask Him again for the wind of His Spirit to blow it all away and blow in His life!
  • See that bowl called “Awakening?” Say, “Tip it, Lord! Tip ‘Awakening’!”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we have cried out across this nation for awakening and revival. You have promised us many times that You’re going to do this. You’ve shown us through visions, through dreams, through the Word and spoken it to the prophets that You’re coming to revive a nation. You are coming to save us from our sin and compromise and decay and destruction. So Lord, we believe that the bowls are full. You’re ready to tip “Awakening”! You’re ready to pour out Your Spirit. Come, Lord, Jesus, Come!

Today’s decree:

The bowls of Awakening are about to be tipped!

Identificational Repentance

Everlasting God (Olam El) permanently forgives our sin when we repent. Because of the blood of Jesus, He remembers our sin no more! When we repent is as if we never sinned! Daniel showed us that we can take up a position of repentance for the sin of our nation. He will listen to the petition of His saints washed in His blood!

“I prayed to the lord my God and confessed: ‘Oh Lord, you are a great and awesome God! You always fulfill your covenant and keep your promises of unfailing love to those who love you and obey your commands.’” (Dan. 9:4; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for saving you and permanently forgiving your sin.
  • Acknowledge that He is willing to listen to you, His child washed in the blood of Jesus, when you present the sin of your nation to Him.
  • Read the prayer from Daniel 9: 4-19, inserting your city, your state, and the United States of America as the location.

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Everlasting Lord, thank you so much that you have removed my sin from me as far as the east is from the west and you remember it no more! It feels so good to be completely forgiven and I desire that others might know this freedom, as well! Thank you that you hear my prayers on behalf of my nation. (Read the prayer from Daniel 9:4-19 to the Lord inserting your city, state and the United States of America as the location.) Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that God has forgiven me completely from my sin and that He hears my intercession on behalf of my city, state and nation today!
