Powerful Words

We know our words are powerful. As we release them, the atmospheric conditions of the earth changes. We believe that God takes them to the ends of the earth on the winds of the Spirit. Some of our words will “take down and shake down”, but all will be synced with His redemptive purposes as we speak the Word of God. The words will grab cords of darkness and unravel them. We are more than voices—we are the voice of God in the earth.

“And Jesus answered them, ‘Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.’” (Mark 11:22-24; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Understand that you are God’s hands, feet and voice in the earth! Get out His Word, open it up and proclaim it!
  • Get excited about His Word! Get excited about speaking it forth! Ask Him to kindle an excitement if you feel a little cold-hearted. Does He need to heal your heart from former trauma? Has the enemy tried to shut you up? It’s time to get free!
  • As you speak the Word, see the angels grab hold of the words and take off with them, carrying them to the place they need to go and dropping them in the exact right spot! Rejoice!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, today we agree with You! We are the voice of the Lord into the earth. We are the prophetic decree of the Lord that speaks what You will go forth and do. We will overthrow and uproot, build and plant. We accept the assignment of this time. We are excited and ready for everything you are doing! We are excited about those that ride the fiery winds of heaven, your angelic host, taking the Word of the Lord to the ends of the earth. We boldly decree that everything will end the way You say it will end. Everything You decree will come to pass! In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I am willing to be a mouthpiece for God in the earth and proclaim His Word in the nations!

As One – A National Appeal to Heaven
40 Days of Prayer Walking the Nation

Here is Today’s Focus:

Health Care

(Doctors, Nurses, and Medical Professionals)

Pray today for those who do not have adequate medical care and for those who have a heart to help meet this need in our nation. Ask God to use Christian doctors and nurses not only to minister to the physical needs of their patients but to spiritual needs as well. Especially pray for those involved in medical missionary enterprises as they often risk contracting the very diseases they seek to treat. Pray by name for doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals you may know. Pray that those Americans who are followers of Christ will make themselves available as frequently as possible to go on short-term mission trips to use their unique gifts to help the sick and suffering in less-developed nations of the world. In this way they will help fulfill God’s promise of Psalm 72:12: “For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help.”

Today’s Passage:

Jeremiah 33:6-8

“Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security. I will bring Judah and Israel back from captivity and will rebuild them as they were before. I will cleanse them from all the sin they have committed against me and will forgive all their sins of rebellion against me.”

Here is Today’s Focus:

The Economy

(Banks, Lending Institutions, and Greed)

The uncertainties of the economy affect all of us in different ways, including those ministries that seek to spread the Gospel globally. Very often missions organizations are the first to suffer in an economic slowdown. Pray for a healthy recovery in all sectors of the economy and that a spiritual awakening will take place that helps overcome greed. Pray also that God will get the attention of Christians to depend on Him, to reject the ways of the world, and that a true revival will result. The great spiritual awakening of the 1850s, in which hundreds of thousands came to Christ, began as a result of a nationwide failure of America’s banking system. In particular, as you serve as a watchman of the Lord today, ask God to allow Hebrews 13:5 (paraphrased) to come alive in the hearts of His children: “Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, ‘I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you.’” More specifically, intercede for individuals you know of by name who have lost their jobs and are struggling financially. Ask God to open opportunities for them to find meaningful employment. Additionally, pray that Christians will continue to give faithfully to their local churches and other worthy ministries.

Today’s Passage:

1 Timothy 6:5-10

“And constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain. But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”

Business

(The Influence of the Marketplace)

Pray for businesses in your community or nation that God will use them to accomplish His purposes. Ask God to raise up godly businessmen and women to be witnesses for Him wherever they serve. Apply today’s passages of Scripture specifically to the marketplace. Pray that God will release funds from businesses in your area and throughout the world to make possible the advancement of Christ’s Kingdom and the completion of the Great Commission.

Today’s Passage:

Isaiah 60:1-5

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the hip. Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come.”

Here is Today’s Focus:

Love:

Strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties; affection based on admiration, benevolence, or common interests; warm attachment, enthusiasm, or devotion; unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another

Ephesians 2:4-5 (NIV)

“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.”

PRAY:

Because of your love, oh Lord, I am alive in Christ. I am saved by your grace! As I pray for America today, God, I ask that you would infiltrate this election season with your love. Give your people in America your heart of love; may we think and speak and act through the filter of your love. May our votes be informed by your love, and may the people we elect be leaders of love for all people and all creation.

Here is Today’s Focus:

Elementary, Junior High and High Schools

Pray today for the students, teachers, and administrators of America’s elementary, junior high and high schools. Especially pray that the Lord will protect the destiny that He has for each young one. Pray for those with little or no godly influences to be divinely connected with people who will intentionally reflect Christ to them. Pray for young minds to be taught the truth of Christ and protected from falsehood. As our youth mature, pray that the Lord will protect their identity. Declare over our students that they are loved and accepted. Pray that students will be filled with discernment and have real, authentic encounters with Christ that will keep them through their teen years and beyond. In a culture where youth are encouraged to squander and experiment, pray that the Lord will raise up an army of young people who will spend their strength for Christ and become God’s great instrument of change in America. Pray for those struggling with depression, suicide, cutting, eating disorders, bullying, family dysfunction, divorce, peer pressure, drugs, domestic violence, substance abuse, and sexual bondage. Pray specifically for high school students you may know by name. Pray for teachers and administrators to lead students with integrity and the fear of the Lord. Pray for those responsible for shaping curriculum, that God will mold the information being taught. Pray for church ministries and outreaches to students that the Lord will use them mightily. Pray that the youth of America will be equipped to passionately follow Jesus their whole lives.

Today’s Passage:

Psalm 31:20

“In the shelter of your presence you hide them from all human intrigues; you keep them safe in your dwelling from accusing tongues.”

Here is Today’s Focus:

Colleges and Universities

Pray today for colleges and universities across America. Today in our nation, the next generation of leaders is being educated, many times by professors who hold disdain or disregard toward Christ. Pray that students will establish a solid foundation in their walks with God and not be persuaded to follow empty philosophies. Pray that students will be Christ-centered and seek to find the truth in Christ. Pray that the Lord will empower believing students to resist the godless culture that surrounds them and instead be an instrument of light and the love of Christ. Pray for unbelieving students across college campuses, that the Holy Spirit will move on their hearts and that they will find their identity and purpose in Christ. Pray for teachers and officials who instruct and lead college campuses across America to encounter Jesus. Pray for Christian ministries that focus on college and university outreach, that the Lord will make them effective in shaping this generation. Pray for an awakening on college campuses across America, that this next generation will love Jesus with all their hearts, souls, minds, and strength.

Today’s Passages:

1 Corinthians 15:58

“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”

 Philippians 4:8-9

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”

Here is Today’s Focus:

Youth (The Next Generation)

Young people, especially teenagers, are bombarded with immoral messages and temptations through movies, TV, music, and the Internet. Social media is adding to this dilemma. We need to enter into the spiritual battle that is raging for the souls of our youth. The words of Proverbs are still true today: “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6, NKJV).

Pray:

Pray by name for youth leaders in your church and the churches of your community. Ask God to raise up many who can meaningfully share His Word and encourage young people to follow the Lord. Pray for effective youth programs in our churches that will attract young people from our communities who need to hear the Gospel. Pray that churches will offer courses to help train Christian youth in how to share their faith with non-Christian friends.

Today’s Passage:

Psalm 119:9-12

“How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Praise be to you, LORD; teach me your decrees.”

Generosity:

The quality of being kind, understanding, and not selfish; willingness to give money and other valuable things to others; providing more than the amount that is needed or normal; abundant or ample

Psalm 51:12 (NKJV)

“Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.”

PRAY:

Your salvation, oh God, is a gift we receive with unending joy, and our lives are upheld by your generosity. I thank you today for the countless ways you have shown generosity to our nation and especially to your people in America. I pray, Lord, that you would use my votes to continue your generosity to America in the years ahead. Make my heart generous as I consider the issues and leaders at hand.

Here is Today’s Focus:

Sanctity of Life

Since Roe v. Wade in 1973, an estimated 54 million pregnancies have been terminated through abortion in America. Pray today for the unborn children of our nation. Pray for their protection in a society that debates their humanity. Children are a blessing from the Lord and something He has fashioned very purposefully. Pray that they will be treasured and seen as gifts. Pray for mothers who face the overwhelming prospect of an unplanned pregnancy. Pray that God will give them courage and provide them with supportive communities that will love and guide them through a trying season. Pray for children born to parents unable to care for them, that God will place them into loving homes where they will be nurtured and taught the love of Jesus. Pray also for the medical doctors who perform the abortion procedure, that God will open their eyes to the reality of what they are doing and convict their hearts to do it no longer. Pray for those mothers who have already undergone an abortion that, rather than shame and condemnation, they will come know the forgiveness and grace of Jesus. And finally, pray for the people of the United States to see clearly that all life is a sacred gift worthy of our protection and love.

Today’s Passages:

Psalm 139:13-16 (NIV)

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”

Need to know:

The upcoming national elections are a Valley of Decision moment for the United States of America. More than any other election, this election is about choosing Life or Death, blessings or curses. Don’t let a religious spirit cause you to miss what God is doing. Choose LIFE when you vote, regardless of how you feel about the candidates running for office! (See Deuteronomy 30:19.)
