Praying Without Partisanship – Part 1
“In the Old Testament, Daniel, Joseph, and Esther served terrible kings, yet they each received revelation from God to fix a social, political, and/or economic problem for those evil kings. And they let the king take the credit! They interceded for those very human kings and found favor with them. They were each welcomed with the royal scepter of receptivity in order to share God’s solution with their leaders. In each case, the nation was saved, together with God’s people. We need to pray for all men – for those we like and those we don’t like. The devil will lie to us to divide us. We typically see Caucasians favoring one political party and candidate, and other ethnic groups favoring another. The upcoming Pray in Unity project, beginning Friday, 9/28, desires to bring us together to pray fervently for all of our political leaders. Let’s trust God for an extraordinary miracle!” (Ed Silvoso)1
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” (Romans 12:21; NASB)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Humble yourself and ask God to prepare your heart to pray in unity with Believers from many streams as we pray in unity beginning this Friday.
- Say, “The enemy will not rule over the Church! We will pray in unity!”
- Ask God to raise up godly leaders for the United States, both spiritual and governmental.
- Call forth an army of intercessors declaring, “Kingdom of God, come! Will of God in America, be done!”
A prayer you can pray:
Father, we want to pray with clean hands and pure hearts, so that we may lead quiet and tranquil lives. We say that the enemy will not prosper, but that Your purposes will come to pass in this nation. Raise up godly leaders. Raise up spiritual leaders who will walk alongside political leaders on both sides of the fence. Raise up that army of intercessors to pray until we see Your Kingdom come in the governmental arena of our nation, our states, and our cities. This we pray in the name that is above all names—Jesus. Amen.
Christ’s Body will learn to pray in unity for our nation.

Praying in Unity is Coming!
“Make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.” (Philippians 2:2; NASB)
When we look around America today, we know that we are in a crisis; we’ve reached a tipping point. In the last election, many Christians got out and voted; however, many spiritual leaders across this nation have been saying one thing: “We’re concerned the church has gone back to sleep.” I know some of you have a similar concern in your heart.
The midterm elections are coming up. The Christian turnout for these elections will reveal whether we are truly going to be able to turn the nation and fully establish cords of righteousness, or if we’re going to slide backwards.
I want to encourage you. If you believe that abortion is wrong, if you believe that the blood of 60,000,000 aborted babies is crying out from the ground of the United States, and if you knew that turning the tide of a nation was within our grasp, even by one vote – would you vote? Would you pray?
I’m asking you to do both—pray and vote. Pray and act. I’m asking you to join us, as we prayer walk America, as we cry out for the nation. We know that God wants to do extraordinary things through our prayers. If we will pray, God will act.
We have developed this very important website called “Pray in Unity.” Here, you can sign up to adopt your block in prayer. You will also find a daily devotion covering all kinds of topics related to the midterm election. In addition, you can sign up to receive a weekly email containing the prayer devotions for each week.
Also, beginning 9/28 through 11/6, Give Him 15 will post the daily devotionals, together with many other national prayer ministries.
It’s a 40-day season, beginning September 28 and continuing through Election Day, November 6. You can also visit many of the supporting organizations’ websites that are listed for additional national prayer resources. You will be praying in unity with thousands of different intercessors from across America, connecting with a coalition of prayer leaders that are standing together, and saying, “We are concerned about America.”
