And the Revival Spread…

The Azusa Street Revival came from the humble beginnings of a prayer meeting. Led by William Seymour, an African American minister, it is considered by church historians to be the beginning of the modern day pentecostal movement. One of those receiving a life-changing touch in those meetings was C. H. Mason. He was gloriously filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak a language he did not know. He later wrote, “My language changed and no word could I speak in my own tongue. Oh! I was filled with the glory of the Lord!” That former Baptist minister went out from that place a thoroughly changed man. He and others who had been asked to leave the Baptist Church had already started the Church of God in Christ (COGIC), but this baptism of the Holy Spirit moved C. H. Mason to go further spiritually than some of the others he had founded the church with. He found others who could embrace the outpouring of the Holy Spirit he had encountered at Azusa Street. In 1907, he re-established the Church of God in Christ as the first legally chartered Pentecostal Church in the United States.

“And then, dear brothers and sisters, you suffered persecution from your own countrymen. In this way, you imitated the believers in God’s churches in Judea who, because of their belief in Christ Jesus, suffered from their own people, the Jews.” (1 Thessalonians 2:14; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Sometimes, we have to move on in God, even when our closest friends stop. If this has happened to you, take a moment to pray for and bless those who couldn’t move forward with you.
  • If you have ever been persecuted by other Christians, especially Christian leaders, for your faith choices, forgive them and bless them now.
  • Ask God to bring unity to the Church across denominations and across racial divides.
  • Make a commitment to walk in unity and a bond of love and peace wherever possible with your brothers and sisters in Christ. Find a prayer meeting you can attend at another church, for example.
  • If you have not received the gift of tongues, giving you the ability to pray for things in the power of the Holy Spirit, ask the Lord for this gift. Go to a church where you know they do speak in tongues and ask someone there to help you receive this gift, if necessary. Just get all of Him!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I miss my friends who couldn’t embrace some of the spiritual truth You have led me to understand. It is sad that we can’t pray together, due to these doctrinal differences. I love them, however, and I ask You to bless them. It won’t keep me from loving them and desiring that they experience more of Your love for them. (Forgive and bless any Believers who may have persecuted you for your faith choices, especially Christian leaders.) Heal Your Body, Jesus, so we can minister together to reach the lost in our nation. Show me where I can connect with other Christians in prayer in other churches in my city. Fill me with an even greater measure of Your Holy Spirit and give me power to pray in a language I don’t understand, but which the Father does. Fill me with a power to witness to the lost and prodigals. Help me to help others be filled with the Holy Spirit and to speak in new tongues. Amen.

Today’s decree:

A fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit is coming to another generation in America!

The beginning of the Azusa Street Revival

The Azusa Street Revival is considered the beginning of the modern-day Pentecostal/Charismatic movement. It is largely attributed to a man of humble beginnings, William J,. Seymour, who was one of eight children born to emancipated slaves. He had a passion for God from the time he was born-again in 1895. His determination to know the Lord and make Him known, ultimately led him to Los Angeles, where he joined a core group of African Americans in a prayer meeting. And then this happened:

“On April 9, Edward Lee spoke in tongues after Seymour and the newly arrived Lucy Farrow laid hands on him in Lee’s home. Overjoyed, the group walked to the Asberry’s house for the evening meeting. Seymour took his text, as was expected, from Acts 2:4: ‘And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.’ He then went on to explain what had just happened to Edward Lee. No sooner had he completed the story, when someone else began to speak in tongues. Before the evening was over, several others, including Jennie Evans Moore, had spoken in tongues. Over the next three days, the Asberry home became the focus of attention among the various networks of Wesleyan holiness people. As Frank Bartleman observed, ‘The news spread like fire, naturally.’ The Azusa Street Revival had begun.”

“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.” (Acts 2:1-4; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord and thank Him for the gifts He gives us, especially that we might pray in tongues.
  • If you don’t have your prayer language, simply ask Him, just as Richard Lee did. That night, an international revival movement began!
  • Thank the Lord for African American brothers and sisters that men rejected, but God used powerfully to expand His Kingdom.
  • Repent if you fall into judging other Believers by their color, their economic status, whether they are male or female, their delivery methods or anything else. If their Gospel message is right, let’s walk together in unity. We have a nation to save!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I thank You for Your gifts! I need them all and want them all. I want to know You and make You known, glorifying Jesus, just like William Seymour and his prayer group did. They didn’t have a lot, other than faith and unity. That was exactly the same pattern on the day of Pentecost. God, we complicate everything. Simplify our intercession. Remove judgement from us so we will embrace one another and walk in greater unity. We must look past color, denomination, male and female, rich and poor. We must not care the manner in which another Believer prays, loud or soft, simply or eloquently. We must pray! We must believe! We must exalt the Son! Jesus, we worship You! Holy Spirit, fill our nation with the Glory of the Lord! Amen.

Today’s decree:

God, use any yielded vessels, and bring the fire of awakening to America!

An Open Letter to President Trump

This is excerpted from an open letter to President Trump on January 25, 2019:

“Dear President Trump,

Thank you for your service to the people of America. Mindful of your compassion for the ‘soul of America,’ we are writing with an urgent request.

While we fully understand your concern for the safety and security of the American people, as well as compassionate consideration for innocent immigrants, we are requesting that you also consider addressing another American crisis by declaring that the abortion of a child in the womb—notably deemed by science and philosophy as a living human byproduct—is a crime against humanity.

While considering a barrier or a wall to protect the people of America and to assist the innocent immigrants who desire to come to our country, we pray that you will also remember the babies in the womb, according to God, science, and philosophy, are human beings waiting to be born.

The scourge of the abortion of human beings in the womb is an American crisis. Please declare that abortion of pre-born human beings is a national crisis.” (See the full letter here. Sign the letter here.)

“Do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, or the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place.” (Jeremiah 22:3c; AMP)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede for God-answers to the immigration dilemma in America. There are no easy or simple answers.
  • Pray for the innocent ones who are coming to America’s southern borders with valid desires for entry. Pray that their needs are able to be met in some way.
  • Pray for solutions for the families with children among the immigrants.
  • Intercede for children traveling with those who are not their parents or other relatives. Command trafficking to be exposed.
  • Ask God to highlight and arrest those among the immigrants who are coming with impure motives, and may already be causing harm to those they are traveling with.
  • Pray for the ending of abortion in America. The unborn among us are in as critical a need, or more so, as the immigrants at the southern border.
  • Ask God to convict every abortionist’s heart. Say, “Jesus, open their eyes to see what they are doing! Bring them to repentance and salvation.”

A prayer you can pray:

God, we come to you in an attitude of repentance. We act like we know exactly what is needed to protect our borders, when we really have no idea of the complexity of the problem. Many national experts bicker back and forth, but have yet to come up with a full solution to this complicated problem. Help! Drop Your solution in the minds of those in government who are seeking You. Let the prophets speak to the governing. Let the agencies work together. You care so much about the people yearning to come into this nation. You know the innocent ones and the hardened criminals among them. You know who can connive their way in and who cannot help themselves. Give our nation solutions for the families with children. Separate any children from captors or those hired to bring them to us. Show our nation the best way to meet their many needs. Now, this immigration problem pales in comparison to the abortion issue. These pre-born ones are being killed on a daily basis. Lives that You placed tenderly and safely in mothers’ wombs are being torn from them by those who do not seem to care. We care! We will stand for the unborn! We ask You to end abortion in this nation, Lord. Give us God-solutions for their care, too. Open hearts to embrace them. Open abortionists’ eyes to exactly what they are doing! Bring conviction and repentance and salvation. Save our nation’s children, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

America chooses Life for our unborn!

Don’t Turn Back!

“Scripture instructs us to advance forward in our calling and to be more like Jesus. It exhorts us not to turn back to our old life or the rudimentary ways of this world. The enemy’s strategy is multifaceted, but I believe one of his most insidious attacks involves the Church turning back at the very time we are called to advance. I’m reminded of the children of Israel’s call out of captivity and on to the Promised Land; at the crucial moment of their journey they retreated instead of moving forward into the promise, and God was not pleased. All they had worked for was forfeited at the Jordan River. But why? We know they spied out the land and perceived themselves to be like grasshoppers in the sight of the giants of the land and chose not to go in. They even chose a leader to take them back to Egypt. Can you imagine?

“What was the problem with the children of Israel? They lost their courage and retreated, deciding to play it safe. God was saying, “Just believe Me. Be strong and of good courage. Fight, and I’ll fight with you and for you.” A passive, fearful, unbelieving mentality had gripped the people of God. They decided and declared that they were not able to possess the land that God had promised. In contrast, God was looking for champions and those who would fight for His cause and His Kingdom. He was looking for those who would face the giants and shout at the walled cities until they fell. He was looking for a fearless generation that would not be afraid, intimidated, disheartened or dismayed but would courageously take the battle to the enemy to accomplish God’s vision on the earth. The enemy, through a spirit of intimidation, wants to make a coward of the Church. It’s not time to back down. It is time to turn around, attack back and possess the land of promise!” (Tom Hamon)

“For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, while it is said: ‘Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.’ For who, having heard, rebelled?” (Hebrews 3:14-16; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede for President Trump again today. Keep holding up his arms. Don’t abandon him right now. God is using him to re-seat the courts, among other things.
  • Send him a note of encouragement here.
  • Know who your two Senators and your Representative is. Learn all you can about them and the way they think and vote. Decide what you agree with and disagree with in alignment with scripture. Write and tell them of your support and/or concerns. (Their contact page should inform you of the way to best way to reach them.) Tell them you are praying for them, then do that in alignment with what you have discovered.

A prayer you can pray:

(Today’s prayer strategy is as individual as you are. Please once again follow the prayer points above. Pray and act until our nation shifts!)

Today’s decree:

We will possess our nation’s inheritance as we intercede for those who govern us! We will not back up or shut up! This nation belongs to the Lord and we will be the ones who minister to it!

Don’t Lose Your Peace, the Presence of God, or God’s Purpose!

The enemy attacked David’s family and those who were in covenant with him in order to confuse David and hit him where it hurt. When something like that happens to us, it can cause us to react emotionally, but David was able to calm himself and seek God and receive the word he needed to hear in order to continue to advance toward his destiny. The enemy wants to rattle your cage and get you off your game but don’t let him. We pursue the Lord first so that we can pursue our enemy with confidence and take back all that he has stolen! God’s peace will allow you to hear His voice and guide you to victory.

Don’t lose your Hope! Hopelessness is a direct attack against the nature of God. When resources are stolen and we feel powerless to see change, we can sink down into a state of hopelessness. The enemy wants to rob our hope of seeing things change or regaining our possessions. He wants to rob our hope for our family, or our purpose and power. But we must not give into the hopelessness the enemy is promoting to us. We must understand that Christ in us is the very hope of glory and the banner of victory to bring the change God wants. We must not shrink back in despair, but rise up in hope and faith to attack and take it all back. (Tom Hamon)

“The God of peace will soon crush satan underneath your feet…” (Romans 16:20)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede for your family members today. Pray for the sick, the lost, and those without hope. Believe for miracles, as you pray.
  • Intercede for the beautiful Bride of Christ. Pray for your local church, your pastors and leaders. Pray for other Christian leaders that you receive from. Strengthen them in pray. Ask God to drive the enemy back from them and restore to them anything that has been lost.
  • Intercede for President Trump. He is navigating some very challenging waters at the moment. He has not been able to get things accomplished. Pray against the enemy’s plans to derail his presidency. Pray protection over all of his family members.
  • Say in faith, “I’m taking it all back!”

A prayer you can pray:

(Follow the prayer points above in your own words. Let faith arise and your enemies be scattered, as well as our nation’s enemies!)

Today’s decree:

The God of peace will crush Satan under our feet! Our nation is secure in Him!

Attack and Take Back!

“In 1 Samuel 30, we see the story of David at Ziklag. We know that David had been on a long journey to fulfill his prophesied destiny of kingship. And if David had given up then, all of his sacrifices up to that point would have been for nothing. At Ziklag, the Amalekites attacked and robbed David and David’s men, taking everything that was precious in their lives. The Amalekite spirit is indicative of a viscous, violent spirit of robbery. The enemy’s attack was not a direct one to kill David, but rather an indirect one, to hurt and take what he most cared about. The plan was to make him crack and give up on his destiny. The pressure grew greater. Even David’s loyal men, out of their grief, began to turn on David and blame him. They even contemplated killing him! These were desperate times and David had a decision to make: would he give in to what was happening in hopelessness and despair or would he attack back? David did the wise thing and inquired of the Lord. The answer was clear and emphatic: pursue, overtake, attack, take back and recover all! I believe this is the same answer that the Lord is decreeing to the Church today: ‘Attack your lack and don’t look back!’” (Tom Hamon)

“David recovered everything the Amalekites had taken, including his two wives. Nothing was missing: young or old, boy or girl, plunder or anything else they had taken. David brought everything back. He took all the flocks and herds, and his men drove them ahead of the other livestock, saying, ‘This is David’s plunder.’” (1 Samuel 30: 18-20; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read all of 1 Samuel 30, if you have the time. If not, read the scripture above and let faith rise in you.
  • Tell the enemy his work has been discovered, and you are demanding he give everything back and more!
  • Make a statement of faith that you will recover all and bring back plunder. Be specific as to what the enemy has stolen from you and what you believe God has said will be restored.
  • Pray the same over this nation. Let God show you what has been stolen and what you can ask to be returned in greater measure.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I think you for Your Word and this wonderful story about David pursuing his enemy and recovering all that was lost, plus bringing back plunder! Cause apathy and complacency to fall away from me and the Body of Christ. Let us rouse ourselves and believe! Devil, the Lord has just showed me what has been going on! I see you at work now against me and so many other godly people. You are going to have to give back seven times what you have stolen from me. You are going to have to return things that you thought were yours forever. NO! My family, my marriage, my children, my wealth, my peace, my health, give it all back and more! I want spiritual sons and daughters. I want my nation to experience the fullness of the Glory of the Lord. I want justice to flow like a river across this land. I want righteousness, peace, and a great harvest of souls for America. The Church will pursue you until we get it all back! For the glory of our Savior, Jesus, we pray, amen.

Today’s decree:

We will recover all!

Everything is Shaking!

“In this season of the third Great Awakening in the Church, the enemy’s resistance is real! The enemy wants to break the back of us, the Church, and make us collapse under the pressure being applied in this generation. Political correctness, new cultural norms and social pressure are trying to reshape the very fabric of the Church to be conformed to this world instead of being the transformational force we are called to be by the renewing of our minds by God’s Word (Romans 12:2).

“Without the Word of God as our basis of truth, the Church is doomed to fail. The enemy wants us to crack under the pressure—crack doctrinally, morally and spiritually! The Scripture says that the enemy is like a ‘roaring lion’ seeking out the weak to see whom he can devour. I believe that is true in this generation more than ever before. The enemy has loosed a spirit of seduction, deception and intimidation against the Church that, if we are not strong, will cause our very foundations to crumble.

“Hebrews 12 says that everything that can be shaken will be, and all I have to say is that there is a whole lot of shaking going on right now! It goes on to say that only the things of the Kingdom will remain and stand. I believe it is the job of the apostolic and prophetic to lay true foundations in the Church (Ephesians 2:20) so that the Church in this generation will withstand the heat and pressure that is coming against it today. Without that, I’m afraid the Church is destined to lapse into apostasy rather than awakening and revival.”  (Tom Hamon)

“When God spoke from Mount Sinai his voice shook the earth, but now he makes another promise: ‘Once again I will shake not only the earth but the heavens also.’ This means that all of creation will be shaken and removed, so that only unshakable things will remain. Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe.” (Hebrews 12:26-28; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Stop feeling sorry for yourself! Realize that the enemy’s attack is not just about you, but he is trying to disrupt God’s overall plan!
  • Humble yourself before the Lord and pray that you will make it to the end, strong and faithful, and faith-filled!
  • Pray for every Christian leader you know to finish well, from your pastor(s) to international ministers. Pray they will explain the shaking to their congregations and help get them through this challenging season.
  • Intercede for Believers that they are not conformed to the world’s image, but, rather, adhere even more closely to Jesus and His Word.
  • Ask the Lord to preserve the vision He has for America, and to keep many in the Church strong, so America can fulfill its destiny in Him.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, help Your children see where we are on the timeline of heaven. The prophets have said this would be a testing season, but there would be great victories! Well, here we are and we are not liking it. Many are in the fight of their lives, but we know You are simply shaking out what is not needed. You are teaching us to stand on shaking ground and not fall. You are allowing us to face things, nationally and personally, that are causing us to make decisions. Will we line up according to Your Word and please the Son, or will we please the world, instead? God, I humble myself before You and pray that You would hold me firmly and very closely to You. Keep the lust of my flesh, the lust of my eyes and the foolish pride of life from wooing me away from You. I pray the same for every leader I can think of. Guard their hearts and eyes and emotions, and let them finish well. Lord, for the sake of the United States of America, preserve Your Church. Let us see Your salvation, Your Glory, and lead the way in the third Great Awakening. In Your justice, remember mercy, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is shaking America, so that all that is not of Him cannot remain!

God is a Lover of Life

“God is the Creator of all life. God is Love. God is Love incarnate in that He gave His only begotten Son to the world, that whoever would believe in Him would live with Him forever. He paid a great price to provide a solution to the death sin created, so that men might live and not eternally die. He loves life, both natural and spiritual. We know that these strong and basic statements of the Christian faith are spiritually discerned. It is not possible for an unsaved mind to comprehend them, unless the Holy Spirit pulls back the blinders off their eyes and lets them see and comprehend. We must be patient with the lost and their thinking, which often stands against God. They do not know how precious life is to Him. Every single life. It matters not to Him the circumstances of the conception or the living standard the child will be born into. He proved that as He planned His own Son’s birth into the arms of an as-yet un-wed mother, who was betrothed to a carpenter, not a king. Consider the location, as Mary went into labor in a foreign country in a stable. His first visitors were shepherds and angels and a few cows and sheep. All of that fulfilled the scriptural plan God had long before laid out – a plan to redeem us and restore us in relationship with Him. God loves life. He cares not the circumstances of our birth, whether rich or poor. He cares not about the occupations or marital status of our parents at the time of our conception. He has always loved us. He loved us from before the foundations of time and He has always had a plan to save us. The unsaved cannot understand this, so we must pray and act to preserve as many little lives as we can – lives God loves.” (Cindy Jacobs)

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship God, the Giver of Life, our Savior, and the Lover of our soul.
  • Pray for miracle salvations for those considering abortion today. Ask the Holy Spirit to open their eyes to the value of the life within them, regardless of their circumstances.
  • Say, “Let the love of God consume them today! May the one seeking to end their pregnancy know how loved they are by Jesus Christ, and how loved their child is.”
  • Have compassion for those seeking abortions. Intercede against any lies the enemy may be telling them, which can cause fear in the mother and/or father, driving them to abort their baby.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we worship You. We can never express our love fully to You on this side of heaven. You are the Creator of life and the Giver of it. You love life! You love people! Your whole plan from the beginning was to have a relationship with us. How badly we have messed that plan up. The fact that You still love us, and sent Jesus to save us, is miraculous in our eyes. Let us never take that love lightly. For those considering ending the life of the unborn within them today, we say, “Stop! See God! Feel His love for you and the child within you!” Lord, let the love of God consume them today! May the one seeking to end their pregnancy know how loved they are by Jesus Christ, and how loved their child is. Stop their ears from hearing the enemy say it is okay to abort the baby in their womb. Don’t let them believe the lie that this will free them. They won’t be able to see the chains it puts on their heart and the lock of shame that comes and keeps them from knowing Your deep love. Save them, quickly, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will trust in God for the life that springs forth from us.

Praying as Daniel Prayed for the Supreme Court

I know that there have been thousands praying and fasting and doing prayer journeys over the years for the shifting of the courts of America, and especially the Supreme Court. Since 2002, I have been saying to the praying Church, “You must pray for the courts. The door of death opened by the Supreme Court in Roe v Wade must be closed!” I have done about everything I can possibly do to say, “We must give all of our efforts to this! The future of a nation is at stake! We are warring for life and for the soul of a nation!” I am not being sensational when I say that. We are warring for the destiny of millions of people, so many lost to abortion. We are warring for the destiny of nations!

In Daniel 9:4-19, Daniel models how to pray for a nation. He begins with identificational repentance for the sins of the nation and then boldly asks God to act to against the wickedness harming the nation. Let me say, I do not ever pray that God would hurt anyone. I decree and pray God would bring His judgements against any false ideologies and against the powers of darkness in a situation. I ask him to remove court justices that need to be removed. I do not pray against people and I am not asking you, or anyone else to do that! I do not believe in that nonsense. Our warfare is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, and wicked spirits in high places. We want our nation to choose life. We want people to be saved and come to know Jesus. We do not pray against people. We pray against the adversary, the devil.

“And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession, and said, ‘O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments, we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments….Now therefore, our God, hear the prayer of Your servant, and his supplications… O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name.’” (Daniel 9:4-5, 17a and 19; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray the prayer of Daniel (above) over the courts of America.
  • Thank the Lord for those who have prayed, taught, warned, and led intercession and prayer journeys, for the shifting of the Supreme Court.
  • Intercede for those leaders who set their faces like flint and will not stop until they see the shift of the Court in their generation and life restored to this nation.
  • Ask God to help the Church press in, praying until the Court is solidly shifted with two, three, or even four conservative constitutional, pro-life justices.
  • Decree that America will choose life, so that every child’s destiny can be fulfilled. As each child’s destiny is fulfilled, this nation’s destiny and the salvation of the nations can be fulfilled.

A prayer you can pray:

“O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments, we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments….Now therefore, our God, hear the prayer of Your servant, and his supplications… O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name.” (Daniel 9:4-5, 17a and 19; NKJV) Thank you, Lord, for all those who have been praying for this nation. Thank you for so many brave men and women who have prayed and even gone to Washington, D.C. to pray. Thank you for those who lead prayer at home and in their churches for the Supreme Court. Complacency and a laissez-faire attitude have at times infiltrated our ranks. Today, we see that the enemy has taken advantage of those moments and he has often used our Supreme Court to do his dirty work against us. We pray for all the spiritual leaders You have now raised up in this hour. Keep a steady flow of intercessors going into the nation’s capital to intercede at the Court, until it is solidly shifted. We need at least two more God-fearing justices on the Court in order for America to choose Life. Two more justices who can rule for Life and the hope that every child’s destiny can be fulfilled. We know You will do this, Jesus, amen.

Today’s decree:

America will choose life, so that every child’s destiny can be fulfilled.

The Power of Seven Black-robed Men

The Lord said to me once while I was praying at the Supreme Court, “You must focus on the courts. More has happened to lead this country away from God through the Court than any other institution.” In biblical times, it was often at the gate of a city that a court or governmental body met. The Lord went on to say, “You must close that gate at the Supreme Court to unrighteousness, and you must open that gate to Me. You must close that gate to the forces of darkness that have infiltrated the nation. More has been done to harm the cause of Christ and bring a culture of death, destruction, and evil through the courts than anywhere else.” There have been a number of key decisions over the years giving their governmental stamp of approval on immorality and injustice, but none so grievous as with Roe v Wade in 1973. This one case has resulted in the death of more than 60 million babies. Seven men made a decision that unleashed a death culture over the nation—seven black-robed men.

“Then I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning; After that you will be called the city of righteousness, A faithful city.” (Isaiah 1:26; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask God to turn the tide of the culture of death that has emanated from the Supreme Court over the last 50+ years.
  • Thank the Lord for some recent rulings that are life-giving and just. Things have started to turn!
  • Declare that the gate at the Supreme Court is closed to further unrighteousness and national harm.
  • Declare that the gate at the Supreme Court is open to God!
  • Speak “life” to the gate of the Supreme Court. Turn the tide and declare it to be a place of where godliness, holiness, righteousness, truth and justice and life flow into the nation.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we humbly ask You to intervene in our nation and turn back the tide of unrighteousness that has flowed from our Supreme Court in the last half century. We add our prayers to the intercession that has gone on before us. Hear, Lord, and act. Merciful God, we are asking for You to ready the Court for righteous actions. Recently, there have been some decisions that have given us hope. We want You to be honored in our governance! We can see the enemy’s influence in our culture much more clearly now. We see him salivating with joy at the expansion of death and Godlessness in America. Lord, we can only withstand Him as You give us grace to stand! Help us not grow weary in well-doing! We say that the Supreme Court of the United States will be a purveyor of Life! Life, life, life, and that abundantly! We proclaim godliness, holiness, righteousness, truth and justice and life flow into the nation! In our precious Savior Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

The gate of the Supreme Court is closed to unrighteousness and open to God!
