I Prayed have prayed
Father, the people who sit in government handle trillions of dollars of American taxpayers’ money. We ask You to hedge them in behind and before, and deliver the American people from thievery, bribery, kickbacks, and extortion, in Jesus’ name.

It’s no secret that the people in Congress handle huge amounts of money. The federal budget is trillions of dollars each year, and our national debt grows each year as well. The government spends more money each year than it receives in revenues.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, the federal budget deficit for fiscal year 2021 is projected to be $2.3 trillion dollars. Our national debt is projected to increase to a whopping $22.5 trillion dollars by the end of fiscal year 2021.[1]

The American people are certainly in dire need of help due to the pandemic. There are programs that cannot and should not be sacrificed. However, all too often, when a new spending bill is passed by Congress and signed into law by the President, we find out about all the “pork” that was included in each bill. Frequently, more American money is sent overseas than is re-invested in the American people.

When considering these things, one has to wonder:

Where is the justice in these things? Furthermore, how many “pork” projects, whether domestic or foreign, are actually kickbacks? How much bribery is going on? How much extortion? How many millions, billions, or even trillions of dollars are being stolen from the American people each and every day?

There’s no way for us to know, but there is a way for us to pray.

Scripture is clear that thievery and dishonest handling of finances is an offense to God. It is sin. However, when we think about the enormity of governmental finance, we have to admit that only God knows enough details about what happens behind closed doors to be able to expose what needs to be exposed and bring thieves to justice.

Furthermore, only God can force restitution to the American people.

Proverbs 6:30-31 says:

People do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy himself when he is starving. Yet when he is found, he must restore sevenfold; he may have to give up all the substance of his house.”

Also, Proverbs 10:2 tells us this:

Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, but righteousness delivers from death.”

And Proverbs 11:1 continues:

Dishonest scales are an abomination to the Lord, but a just weight is His delight.”

Based on these Scriptures, I believe that American intercessors should be praying each and every day not only for the Lord to expose thievery in government, but also for Him to force any and all thieves to make restitution to the American people for their misdeeds.

It is God’s will that money be handled responsibly. It is His will that governments and leaders be accountable. It is also His will that any treasures that wicked people steal will not prosper them, and that SEVEN TIMES restitution should be made to those who are robbed.

My friend, if you also believe that God wants to expose thievery and fraud wherever it exists in government, then pray this with me today:

“Dear Heavenly Father,

I come to You today in Jesus’ name. Father God, You are a pure and just and holy God. You do not steal, and it does not please You when others steal either. Thievery is sin, Father, and You hate it.

So, Father God, we come to You today to ask for Your help.

Father, we suspect that thievery, bribery, extortion, and kickbacks happen every single day in American government. We aren’t naming names or places, but Father we acknowledge that the problem may be far more widespread than we can even imagine.

Father, You alone know all things. You alone know what goes on behind the scenes, and You alone sit as Judge over all the peoples of the earth. So, Father, in the mighty and matchless name of Jesus, who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords, we ask:

  • That You would expose thieves in government at every level.
  • That You would expose the roots of “pork” in every situation, both domestically in the USA and internationally in all of our dealings.
  • That You would expose bribery, extortion, kickbacks, and every other wicked financial dealing in government.
  • That You would bring forth evidence against them that will stand up and win the battle in every court.
  • That You would raise up and bring forth the prosecutors to prosecute these cases.
  • That You would cause every court to hear the cases to bring thieves to justice.
  • That every thief would be convicted.
  • That You would show mercy to all who will receive it; that You would pour out Your Spirit of repentance upon all who sit in government, and that all the wicked who are willing to repent would repent.
  • That You would require those who have stolen from the American people to restore what they have stolen seven times over.
  • That the money the wicked have stolen would not profit them.

Father God, we ask in Jesus’ name that You would sit as Prosecutor over these crimes. We ask that You would expose what needs to be exposed; that You would rout criminals and criminal dealings out of government; and that You would replace them with righteous leaders who love You, who will steward Your resources well, and will fight for righteousness and justice.

Father God, we need You. The national debt is growing, and we cannot do anything about it other than pray and vote. Please help us to vote in people who will be fiscally responsible with America. Let our voice be heard and counted. Give us leaders who will preserve America for the sake of our children, and for the sake of our children’s children.

Father, we ask in Jesus’ name that You would turn the people in government at every level into wise stewards, for all of our resources belong to You. I ask the same thing for myself too, Father. Convict every American, even those in government, of our lack of godly stewardship. Give us all a holy fear of mishandling the resources You have entrusted to us. Help us to steward this nation that belongs to You wisely and well.

Thank You, Heavenly Father. In Jesus’ mighty and precious name I pray, amen.”

Beloved, remember that the weapons of our warfare are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.

Even the stronghold of fiscal irresponsibility and thievery in government can be exposed, rooted out, and torn down as we pray. Let’s continue to join together and contend for righteousness to come forth in our land, even in our handling of money!

We need to pray for God to move and bring us all to repentance. After praying this prayer, and sharing this prayer, I was convicted in my own spirit of robbing God by not bringing my whole tithe into God’s store house, of not giving offerings. Malachi 3-11. By clasping tightly to my blessing rather than letting go and sharing. Please pray this prayer as there are thieves in the church, – Churches that cater to the rich and ignore the poor need also to repent. In my heart I feel that the church needs to repent just as we are praying that those in government who are thieves repent. Please pray this prayer for the church.

The Global Reset promoted by the NWO Luciferian Cabal requires that America’s freedom & economy be destroyed. IT WILL NOT HAPPEN! Our Holy YHVH GOD has other plans… Praise HIM We thank you Holy Father that You have plans in place to expose the darkness to EVERYONE including the vast multitude that are ‘asleep’. Wake US ALL up to the Truth of Your agenda, and may we participate actively in winning souls for Your Glory & Your Kingdom… in Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

We know in Whom we have believed, and why!

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray once again for our nation and its deliverance from the evil that has ensnared it. I know that we must pray for our enemies, and I do to the point that I hope those of them who do evil because they have been deceived into it see the folly of their ways and repent while there is still time. I also pray that those who are now knowingly serving evil also have a change of heart and repent. But Lord, I am so sickened by the blatant wickedness and debauchery that now floods our land, and I pray that You will soon act to demonstrate to the masses that evil does not go unpunished forever. I know our ways are not yours, and I realize that the longer the evil persists, the more people will be awakened to it and hopefully saved. Still, I cannot help but pray for justice and to see great evils righted. I pray that all of those people who have been publicly attacked, cancelled, and maligned get their moment of truth and justice and their wicked accusers exposed. I pray that the crimes committed against the people of this nation by the wicked and power hungry elitists, globalists, socialists, communists, narcissists, hedonists, and all their allies behind their myriad masks be exposed, toppled, and brought to justice. Lord, like millions of others, I hunger for the day that we shall see Your righteous justice prevail and the false teachings of Your enemies revealed for the hateful lies they are. Lord, like so many, I am praying for a much-needed victory for those who would serve You. Lord, please save our nation and let it once again be a force of good, yes, Your good, in this darkening world. Lord, give us wisdom and clarity, and may we find the role You have set for us in this fight. Let us not shirk our tasks that You set before us. In Jesus precious name I pray, O’ Lord, Amen.

The greatest theft by the Federal government is our Liberty.

    April 8, 2021

    As the word of God says, “the rich (elites) rule over the poor and the borrower (debtor) becomes slave to the lender”. Prob. 22:7 When Americans consider what / where we are floating our debt to, it’s easy to see how easily our liberty is being lost.

Father God, we pray that we become good stewards of the resources You have given us. Expose the abuse, misuse and exploitation of our nation’s resources for their personal gain by evil people in our government. We pray that these people will repent and turn from their wicked ways. We thank you for the blessings we enjoy in this great nation. Convict us to be responsible, accountable and wise stewards for your glory and honor. In Jesus’s mighty name. Amen.
