I Prayed have prayed
Father, we come in agreement with this song. We pray for our leaders and officials, God, and we pray that Your will would be done in our country - on earth as it is in Heaven.

Nathan Kistler, executive director at Hope to the Hill ministries, sang an uplifting rendition of “The Lord’s Prayer” in the U.S. Capitol. Are you encouraged? Please share!

From CBN News. A man performed a beautiful rendition of the Lord’s Prayer in the U.S. Capitol Wednesday evening, and after it was shared on social media it went viral, quickly garnering nearly a million views.

Pray for your fellow intercessor.

 

Video of the two-minute performance shows a crowd gathered around Nathan Kistler as he sings with a full heart. Some spectators can be seen recording the powerful spiritual moment while others appear to be listening intently as if they were praying.

Kistler is the executive director at Hope to the Hill Ministries in D.C., which aims to encourage, support, and minister to powerful politicians who are carrying the heavy burden of leadership….

During a previous interview with CBN News, Kistler explained that Hope to the Hill provides prayer and pastoral support for all those God has put in office.

“So many members, when you go into their office, say, ‘Well, what can I do for you today?’ And we just say we don’t want anything from you. We just want to know how we can pray for you,” Kistler told CBN News. “And it’s amazing to see members – I’ve had anything from they kind of shrug a little bit to crying because they’ve never had anybody come into their office and ask how they can pray for them.”

Hope to the Hill also trains lawmakers on how to share their faith with others.

Kistler urges believers to call their representative’s offices and simply offer encouragement to their staffers….

Were you encouraged by this song? If so, share it with your friends and family to encourage them!

I have been a prayer warrior for many years, but this was an incredible move of the Spirit. I am part of IFA, as well as a member of the prayer team at our church. I would encourage more singers to do this sort of witness, as it moves people in a way that nothing else can. As a musician, I realize that music can reach people when nothing else seems to. May God bless this ministry abundantly.

Beautiful!!!! I’m glad I went back in my emails and caught this article that I had missed. I am sharing it with a lady on my street to encourage her. She was telling me how the state of our government discourages her. Thank you IFA and Hope to the Hill Ministries for this encouragement. How beautiful are feet of those who bring good news! Mr. Kistler, I am praying for your beautiful God-given voice to continue to ring out across the world with this Christ-taught prayer. I join the Amen chorus! God bless you!

What a stirring rendition and prayer! It should be prayed every day in the legislative chambers. When I clicked on Hope to the Hill Ministries, I received back a “404 not found” message; I pray this ministry is still in progress and has not been banned as so many of the fruitful and sacred ministries are.

Amen! Amen! In agreement with those below this response Lord, particularly Linda below, thank You for this godly man going into a place where the enemy has engaged in increasing spiritual darkness. Indeed it is the enemy’s desire to shut out Your light and cast his darkness as “enlightenment”. This man’s song, from Your Own Words, is a light in that darkness. Lord may You work in all of our hearts who heard or saw this video, such that we all would “receive…the love of the truth and so be saved” (2 Th 2:10). Help us examine our hearts, to turn from our dark ways and towards Your Light -Jesus. …”from the power of Satan unto God, that we might receive forgiveness of sins” (Acts 26:18).
“Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end and establish the just…” (Ps 7:9) All in Jesus’ Name! Forever and ever! Amen!

Thank You Father God for this godly man with the courage to enter a building where You have not been wanted. Praise Your holy name Father. Cause this to happen often, everyday even. Cause the sound of the voice of the godly men and women who come there to share Your glorious name with all the lawmakers, to stir feelings of love for You God and remorse for the time spent apart from You. Cause them to see they wicked ways that they have been operating this country and causing hardships for Your people. Thank You Father God for You unfailing love for us and Your protection against the wicked. Let Your will be done today Lord, and I pray in the name of Jesus . Amen

A wonderful testimony in song by Dave Kistler! May God continue to use Hope to the Hill Ministries in touching/encouraging those in the White House. With the unfortunate negative leadership in the present administration, we need to pray for God’s presence to provide wisdom, discernment, encouragement, protection, sensitivity to His Spirit and the courage to DO WHAT IS BEST FOR AMERICA!

To God be the glory!
