Completing the Esther Fast

“We have seen nominees rise and fall as well as multiple vacancies open up at the same time. We believe God’s purposes are now pressing in to bring about a prophesied shift on the Court. Would you stand with us now to look beyond the current vacancy and believe for yet another Justice to retire or be removed? Our unified cry through this three-day fast will shake the heavens! Together we will possess this seat for God’s choice, for someone who will uphold the Constitution, and for the overturning of Roe v Wade.” (Lou Engle)1  (The Esther Fast will be completed tonight at sundown.)

For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.” (Colossians 1:16; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord.
  • Declare Colossians 1:16.
  • Thank the Lord for unity in the Body of Christ throughout these three days of fasting and intercession. Where unity is, God commands His blessings.
  • At the close of your time of fasting, take communion.
  • Seal the intercessory work of the last three days under the blood of Jesus. Say, “It is finished.”

A prayer you can pray:

God, we worship You! Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we exalt You over America and all that concerns her! You are worthy of our worship and praise! (Add your own words and songs of worship.) In You all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through You and for You. You created the Body of Christ and unified us for this last three days of intercession on behalf of the vacancy on the United States Supreme Court. May our unified intercession be heard by You and may Your perfect will come to pass now. As we take communion, we say, “It is finished.” Amen.

Today’s decree:

God’s plans for the Supreme Court are assured!

Esther Fast for the Court – Into Day 3

In March 2017, Lou Engle had a dream in which women all over the world gathered to hear a woman teach from the book of Esther. “Waking from that dream, Lou understood that there are certain spirits of witchcraft and death that can only be broken by women, and he knew the ‘Esthers’ must arise to challenge legalized bloodshed that fuels witchcraft over the whole nation… Immediately following Justice Kennedy’s retirement announcement, something quite revealing began to take place – something that you won’t hear about in the news. Sources revealed that witches began making calls to Senators’ offices to curse them with brazen witchcraft in an effort to exert a demonic influence over the process. Make no mistake – this is a spiritual battle of the highest order.” (Lou Engle)1

“Receive your power from the Lord and from his mighty strength. Put on all the armor that God supplies. In this way you can take a stand against the devil’s strategies. This is not a wrestling match against a human opponent. We are wrestling with rulers, authorities, the powers who govern this world of darkness, and spiritual forces that control evil in the heavenly world. For this reason, take up all the armor that God supplies. Then you will be able to take a stand during these evil days.Once you have overcome all obstacles, you will be able to stand your ground.” (Ephesians 6:10-13; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Repent for pre-judging these witches. Remember, they do mean harm, but they are human beings that Christ died for—people the enemy is borrowing and using.
  • Forgive them for their overt activities against our Senators and our President. Pray for their salvation.
  • Now, take authority over every plan of the evil one to use witchcraft to disrupt and harm our governmental leaders.
  • Command every curse of darkness and the effect of them to fall away from these leaders and the process to choose the best person to take Justice Kennedy’s place.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I humble myself and repent for judging unsaved people acting like unsaved people. These witches cursing our President and our Senators need to be set free from the enemy’s plans for them. They need to know You have a wonderful plan for them – a plan to give them eternal and fulfilling life through Jesus Christ. Holy Spirit, go to work to draw them to the cross of Jesus! We break the power of every curse they have spoken against our governmental leaders. I say that the processes they hope to disrupt with those curses will not be changed. A curse without cause cannot alight. I say that God’s purposes will come to pass in the mighty name of Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

No curse can stop God’s purposes for America from being fulfilled.

Esther Fast for the Court – Into Day 2

“When Justice Kennedy announced his retirement from the Court on June 27, we remembered how often we had prayed through the years for his reformation or resignation, in spite of the fact that a pro-life President appointed him. This is because, in 1992, he infamously switched his vote at the last minute and decided to uphold abortion in the pivotal case Planned Parenthood v Casey. That decision strengthened Roe v Wade and allowed the abortion total to now soar to more than 60 million lives lost!” (Lou Engle)1

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” (James 1:5; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare, “Our next Supreme Court Justice will be politically impartial and will follow the U. S. Constitution.”
  • Intercede the way open for the one who will guarantee “life”, as expressed in the Constitution, to every conceived child.
  • Close the door to any political pressure or persuasion affecting Supreme Court Justices.
  • Ask the Lord to give us a Justice who will humbly seek Him for wisdom, even as Solomon did. With that gift, they cannot go wrong.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, thank you for giving us a new Supreme Court Justice who will stay true to the U. S. Constitution. May they look to You and not be pressured to rule a certain way by outside political pressures or public opinion, or even their own opinions. We shut the door to that!  We open the door to the one who will guarantee the constitutional definition of life from conception. Let our new Justice humbly seek You for wisdom. You are more than willing to give them that gift, even as You gave it to Solomon. Our nation will never be the same if that grace-gift is bestowed on the justices that will ask for it. In Jesus’, name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Our Supreme Court Justices will not be politically swayed.

Esther Fast for the Supreme Court Begins at Sundown

“While we do not have clarity of revelation concerning the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh, the scriptures charge us to bind (or disallow) and loose (allow) on Earth in cooperation with heaven.We are calling a three-day Esther fast to stand in the gap on behalf of the nation and disallow anyone from being confirmed to the Supreme Court who will not ultimately reverse Roe v Wade. We declare, ‘LIFE’ over the empty seat and reserve it for God’s choice. We urge you to join us – along with thousands of Believers – beginning tonight, the evening of August 18, for a three-day Esther fast.” (Lou Engle)1

“Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.” (Matthew 18:18-19; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask God for supernatural discernment for the Ekklesia who will be fasting and praying regarding Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation. He is a good man and a good judge and he may be the one God has raised up. Bless him and do not pray anything negative against him.
  • Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding, as you pray. Intercede as the Holy Spirit leads, but harm no person in your intercession.
  • Disallow anyone to sit on the Court that is not meant to sit there. Release the seat to the one God has prepared.
  • Declare, “LIFE” over the vacant seat.
  • Prepare for your fast beginning tonight at sundown.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we feel the weight and the glory as we prepare for these next three days of fasting and prayer. Grant Your Ekklesia the grace of discernment as we intercede. We bless Judge Kavanaugh and say that this is not about a man, but about an open seat on the highest court in the United States. May our prayers be pure of heart and led by Holy Spirit as we lean on You to guide them. We will disallow anyone to sit in that vacant seat that will allow abortion in this nation. We will loose it only to the one that will remove this travesty from our land. We declare, “LIFE” over the empty seat. We will make ourselves ready, even as Esther was made ready. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We loose “LIFE” over the open Supreme Court seat.

Preparing for the Esther Fast for the Supreme Court on 8/18/18

“In 1857, the U.S. Supreme Court delivered a tragic decision in the Dred Scott v Sanford case that seemingly sealed the fate of slaves in America. In spite of powerful spiritual awakenings, we failed to end the bloodshed of slavery. Catastrophe followed and new estimates show 750,000 lives were lost on the battlefields of the Civil War. We believe the same implications of God’s justice still stand today.” In the case of Roe v Wade, it appeared that the fate of untold millions of babies were sealed (more than 60 million to date)—they would be lost to abortion. To prevent more precious lives lost, God wants us to humble ourselves in national fasting and repentance and bring this to Him. “In essence, He is saying, ‘If you don’t deal with it in your courts, I’ll deal with it in Mine.’” (Lou Engle)1

“Listen to me, my people; and hear me, my nation: for a law will go out from me, and I will establish my justice for a light to the peoples. My righteousness is near. My salvation has gone out, and my arms will judge the peoples.” (Isaiah 51:4-5a; WEB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Write today’s decree on a piece of paper and hold it up to the Lord. Say, “Together with thousands of other Believers today, I am bringing Roe v Wade to Your Court, and we expect a reversal! Thank you, Lord!”
  • Tell the Lord in your own words how you feel about abortion. Cry out against it.
  • First, find God’s heart of compassion, then intercede for all those whose lives have been touched by the effects of Roe v Wade: women who have chosen to abort a child, parents who encouraged abortion, men who have fathered children and encouraged the mother to abort the child. Pray for doctors who performed abortions, together with all of their staff members. Also, pray for pastors, educators and doctors who have encouraged abortion.

A prayer you can pray:

(Write today’s decree on a piece of paper and hold it up to the Lord.) God, together with thousands of other Believers today, I am bringing Roe v Wade to Your Court, and we expect a reversal! Thank you, Lord! I cry out against abortion! (Tell the Lord in your own words how you feel about abortion.) Grant me Your grace of compassion for all of those who have had abortion touch their lives. Because the U.S. Supreme Court decided abortion should be legal in America, the enemy has fooled so many into thinking that it really is okay. Women, even Christian women, have suffered abortion. Draw them to Your loving forgiveness, Lord. Let their bodies, minds, and emotions be healed. Bring to repentance and deliver the fathers, would-be-grandparents, doctors, pastors, educators, and all others who have participated in this sin. Jesus, wash this curse away, and all the effects of this bloodshed off our nation. Thank you for your healing of our nation, amen.

Today’s decree:

We are bringing Roe v Wade to God’s Court and we expect a reversal!

Lou Engle is Calling for an Esther Fast for the Courts

“Once again we find ourselves in a moment of decision concerning the U.S. Supreme Court and the potential to overturn the 1973 decree of death known as Roe v Wade. We are urging everyone who cares about the future of America to join us in a three-day Esther fast, August 18-21 (sundown to sundown). Through the years, the story of Esther has been a dominating prophetic theme for our prayer movement, understanding the Roe v Wade is not unlike Haman’s evil edict that threatened the genocide of Esther’s people. She rose up ‘for such a time as this,’ risking everything to overturn Haman’s death decree. Esther’s story is timeless in the sense that we periodically find ourselves in similar moments that demand intensified prayer and fasting for the sake of shifting circumstances. It is our conviction that America is in another Esther moment.” (Lou Engle)1

For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

Please plan to join many thousands of others across the Body of Christ in fasting in some way for the three days from sundown 8/18 through sundown 8/21. Please seek medical advice before engaging in any fast, especially an Esther Fast, which calls for no food or water for the three days. Dutch Sheets wants your fast to be safe. Therefore, if you are able to fast on juice, fast one meal a day, fast a particular food group, or fast something like media, that is acceptable. God knows your particular situation.

  • Ask God for grace for all of those preparing to enter this three-day fast.
  • Prepare your heart by reading the book of Esther and praying the Word as the Holy Spirit leads you to.
  • Worship.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, thank you for leaders like Lou Engle who help us to know how to break national strongholds. We are willing to enter this three-day Esther Fast to turn the Court and reverse Roe v Wade. We want the 1973 death decree of Roe v Wade broken off America. Show each of us the way we can safely fast to get this stronghold broken. Those who can fast as Esther fasted, grace for that. Those that must fast in a different manner due to medical needs, grace for that. Please accept the fast each is able to honor You with. Show us how to pray in preparation as we read the book of Esther. We will worship You, Lord of Life! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The 1973 death decree called Roe v Wade will be broken off the U.S.A.!

You Always Have Access to My Court

During the fourth of July weekend in 2004, Lou Engle felt led to go to Philadelphia where the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were written and the beginnings of our nation took place. One of his ministry partners had a dream. Lou recalls, “I was pregnant with the God-thought of renewing covenant with God on behalf of America and decreeing a shift over the Supreme Court. My friend had a dream that night and in the dream he and I were rushing to get to a basketball court. Once we burst through the doors of the basketball court, we apologized to the person in authority over the basketball court for being late. The person responded, ‘You are not late. You always have access to my court.’ Then, we noticed that there were nine chairs in the middle of the court and two of the seats were unoccupied. My friend and I were then invited by the person in authority to possess those two open seats and officiate over the court. We felt that the dream was declaring that two seats on the Supreme Court were opening and that the Church must sit in authority and proclaim righteous justices for those seats.”

“This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘If you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts.” (Zechariah 3:7; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Even though the security at the Supreme Court does not allow Christians to stop and pray there, the building belongs to the people, just like the White House and U. S. Capitol buildings. Declare, “The Church always has access to the U. S. Supreme Court.”
  • Intercede for the Body of Christ to walk in greater fear of the Lord and obedience to the Lord. This is what creates Divine access.
  • Repent, if you find yourself more politically-motivated than prayer-motivated when it comes to the actions of our Court and government.
  • We have access everywhere in intercession. Call the Court to line up with God’s sovereign order and plan for America’s future.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, the security guards at the U. S. Supreme Court often try to stop Christians from praying there. That is not okay. If they only knew what a blessing our intercession can be. We pray for the welfare of the justices and their staffs. We pray for constitutional and righteous judgements. We pray for justice, truth, mercy and life! We say,  “The Church always has access to the U. S. Supreme Court.” It is the Court that represents all the people of this great nation. If there is anything in us that limits our access, Lord, we repent. Increase the fear of the Lord and obedience to Your Word and Holy Spirit leading, so that we can govern in intercession. Remove political thinking from us and give us the mind of Christ. Move us to intercession where we have access to all things. From that vantage point, we call our Supreme Court to line up with Your sovereign order and plan for America. In the name of Jesus, amen.

Today’s decree:

The praying Church always has access to the Supreme Court!

Silent Siege at the Court

Lou Engle, leader of TheCall, started a prayer movement at the Supreme Court that is a silent siege. Today, it is called Bound4Life and is led by Matt Lockett. He led young people to start praying at the Court with red “Life tape” on their mouths praying for the ending of abortion in America and a shifting of the courts. All silent. They have prayed there every day since October 2004—through rain, snow, and heat. They will not stop until God delivers America from the sin of abortion.

“Lay siege against it, build a siege wall against it, and heap up a mound against it; set camps against it also, and place battering rams against it all around.” (Ezekiel 4:2-3; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray, “Jesus, I plead Your blood over my sins and the sins of my nation. God, end abortion, and send revival to America.”
  • Decide to lay siege to the spirit of abortion in America, especially as it has gained entrance through the U.S. Supreme Court.
  • Declare, “Abortion, remove your filthy self from America’s shores! We will not tolerate this spirit of death that claims our unborn—the treasures of our nation’s future!”
  • Pray for Bound4Life and all of the Christians who pray daily at the Supreme Court. Pray as if you are standing there alongside them. Even check the weather report for Washington, D.C., for the day.

A prayer you can pray:

In the Spirit, I join those standing on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court today and every day to pray for the ending of abortion in America. I join them in their daily silent prayer. “Jesus, I plead Your blood over my sins and the sins of my nation. God, end abortion, and send revival to America.” Abortion, remove your filthy self from America’s shores! We will not tolerate this spirit of death that claims our unborn—the treasures of our nation’s future! Jesus, provide the Bound4Life intercessors the grace to stand against the enemy’s tactics through our Court. They are standing there today in the rain and humidity of a D.C. summer day. They aren’t distracted as a tourist would be. They are standing firm and engaged in a spiritual battle until a death culture is routed from our land. Turn the Court, Lord! Save us! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Christ’s followers are laying siege against abortion in America!

Jesus the Evangelist is on the Scene

“A prophecy was once given to me by a group of young YWAMers. They said, ‘There’s coming a shift to TheCall. It will not be fasting and prayer, but a proclamation of the Gospel, signs and wonders, and stadiums will be filled. Billy Graham mantles will fall on this nation.’ Someone else has prophesied over me for 10 years, ‘Look for the season of Billy Graham’s death. Stick with him, because you are going to get something from Billy Graham.’ Then, Chuck Pierce prophesied today, ‘Some of you are going to become an evangelist!’ I knew that applied to me! When Jesus the Evangelist begins to step on the scene, evangelism begins to rise again. It will rise in us! Prophets will become evangelists, teachers will become evangelists, we will all become evangelists because that’s what Jesus is doing right now in America!” (Lou Engle)1

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Welcome the evangelist mantle onto your life right now, regardless of any other mantle you may wear.
  • Ask God for an ability to hear Holy Spirit’s direction for each specific evangelistic encounter you engage in. Remember, Holy Spirit will be working in partnership with you. He’ll make it easy to reap this harvest of souls.
  • Proclaim that Billy Graham’s evangelist mantle is being multiplied across our nation!
  • Pray for the availability of stadiums and convention centers and other large venues to be used for evangelism.
  • Intercede for the development of discipleship programs and church readiness to receive the new Believers, so the harvest is held.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, mantle me with an anointing to evangelize. It is the season! Show me who to engage and how you want me to share the Good News with them. Do You want to heal them, have me share a word of knowledge, or just be friendly to them? Do this everywhere, Lord! Multiply Billy Graham’s mantle across the land. Pour out your spirit of evangelism in one-on-one meetings as well as in large venues. Open supernatural doors for ministries to be charged good prices to use stadiums and convention centers for large gatherings. Download your discipleship strategies and material content into the pastors and teachers so we can hold the harvest of new believers. Jesus, we long for multitudes of spiritual babies to fill our churches! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The evangelist mantle is falling across America!

Don’t Hang Your Cleats Up Yet

“Do you only want to go so far in Christ? It’s painful sometimes to go farther. The tests, the bitterness, the judgements, the beatings, and the betrayals can be brutal. Everything in you screams, ‘You did a good job. Just hang up the cleats.’ I tell you, America’s stadiums full of new Believers are still waiting for us. We are going to want to have our cleats on. All of us have a story that needs injected into the storyline of this season. I can’t tell you Chuck Pierce’s story. I can’t tell you Dutch Sheets’ stories, but I can tell you my own! All of our stories are significant. Somebody needs to hear your story, your testimony. Don’t put your cleats away as long as there is someone left to tell your story to!” (Lou Engle)1

They won the victory over him because of the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony. They didn’t love their life so much that they refused to give it up.” (Revelation 12:11; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Have you been feeling tired, worn out, beaten down, or discouraged? Have you wanted to stop? Maybe retire? Ask the Lord to heal you, spirit, soul and body.
  • Grieve, repent, forgive, or anything else you have to do to gain the energy and vision to get those cleats back on and fully engage in the game.
  • Ask the Lord to share His dreams for this era with you so you can dream His dreams.
  • Get your stories ready. Write them down if you need to. Rehearse them and watch for opportunities to share them with a person in need of what only you have to share with them. Watch Holy Spirit go to work!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, where I am tired and worn down from disappointment, testing, and betrayal, heal me. I choose to forgive, even as You forgive me. Wipe my tears away and stand me on my feet again. Share Your dreams for this season of revival and awakening with me. My life is not over. My stories are needed. Help me remember how You brought me through. Give me the best words and way to share so that any bitterness or grief does not sneak through my words. Holy Spirit, let’s go share my stories with the sick, the oppressed, the dying and the lonely. Use them to draw the lost to Jesus, my precious Savior. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Our testimonies will break the captives free!
