July 23, 2020 | From Wanda Alger
This is a call to pray for President Trump. Listening to his press conference [Tuesday] sent an alarm in my spirit. I believe the FEAR OF MAN is beginning to take hold in the White House and we must pray for the FEAR OF THE LORD to grip the President’s heart . . .
I also believe that the level of courage and boldness that this President exhibits has a direct correlation to the courage and boldness that other leaders will take. It’s a spiritual principle as confidence always starts from the head and trickles down (Prv 29:2,4). Regardless of your opinions of the man, he is in an office that yields great authority in the spirit realm. When he takes a righteous stand, it opens the door for others to do the same.
Join me in this prayer based on Isaiah 8:11-15, that President Trump would not follow the way of the people and not fear what they fear. I pray that he would FEAR THE LORD and regard HIM as holy and the one to dread. I pray that Holy Spirit would give President Trump the courage to call out the lies and manipulation of the beast and not give in to peer pressure, political pandering, or even a desire to be liked.
I pray that his stand would strengthen the truth, embolden the righteous, and become a snare and a trap for his enemies. May he walk in the mantle and anointing of a DAVID in this hour to not back down from this Goliath, but face him with what he has in his hands, knowing that HIS GOD is greater than the taunts, the threats, and the intimidation. May the President himself SEE the power of his God at work as he defies the principalities who dare to come against the Lord Almighty. May those who muddy his counsel be REMOVED and may those who stand with him RISE UP and hold up his hands until this battle is won.
But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy. (1 Peter 3:14-15)
