I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we pray for Congressman Byrne and his staff--we thank you for leaders who know and love you.

Rep. Bradley Byrne from the First District of Alabama shares his concerns about the lack of productive legislative action in Congress in this heightened political atmosphere. “With her announcement that the House will finally move toward impeachment, Nancy Pelosi has set in motion what the Democrats have wanted to do since Election Night of 2016. They will seek to remove President Trump at all costs. It is frustrating for me that Washington is focused on these partisan impeachment proceedings when there is so much we could get done for the American people.  For example, the President’s trade deal has bipartisan support but has not moved forward in the House.”

So, how best can we pray for Rep. Byrne and his staff during this tempestuous time in the House of Representatives?  When we spoke to his office, staff shared the need for IFA intercessors to pray for strength for the Congressman and his staff during this challenging time, and specifically for wisdom.

Let’s pray Proverbs 9:10 over Rep. Byrne and his staff: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Rep. Byrne serves on the House Committee on Armed Services, and the House Committee on Education and Labor, so also please pray for his work to be effective where he is serving, and for those committees specifically. He and his wife Rebecca have four children and two grandchildren.  Pray for blessing and protection for him and his family.

If you prayed for Congressman Byrne and want to encourage him and his staff with a personal uplifting note, you can send your note here:

Is 55:11 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
I can only say ‘Amen’ to all the above prayers, but to encourage to filter everything through Isaiah 55:11. God created the entire world and everything in it. Still he gave us this promise. We don’t know what this pathway will look like — still He is capable of giving us each the instructions we need to carry out His Will.
Mt 17:20He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”

God seeks willing hearts and hands for His purposes. I believe we are each responsible for understanding His promises, and for carrying out what He lays on our hearts. Jesus can change hearts, we cannot. Faith, Courage and Blessings to all who participate in IFA.
We have His Promises about the end result.

Father, I lift up Rep. Byrne and his staff and his family to You. Protect and defend each of them, and grant safe passage in these stormy waters. Bless him and grant him extraordinary favor, and yes I pray Proverbs 9:10 over him and his staff: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” Strengthen and sustain him at this most stormy time. I lift up the 1st district of Alabama and ALL of Alabama to You. Mooooove as only You can, in this state, and encourage Rep. Byrne and be the Lifter of his head, in the name of Jesus, amen.

Lord, please confuse the strategy of the demonic realm fueling impeachment of President Trump. Make one lie prove another wrong until they kill each other and fall to the ground, in Jesus name. Amen

It is clear that the demacrats have absolutely no interests in what the american people want. I want to know who they serve? I want to know who killed president JFK? I want to know who is responsible for 9/11? I want my country back!!!! It is time to take our country back!

Thank you Rep. Byrne for standing up for Jesus and American. I pray for encouragement, strength and a hedge of protection for you and your family. I also pray more Representatives will be encouraged to stand with you to defeat those who would tear this country apart. I pray the deep state will be defeated and America will be one nation under God once again.

Thank you Rep. Byrne for standing for Jesus and America. I pray for encouragement, strength, and a hedge of protection around you and your family. I also pray other members of the House will stand with you and we can see this country move forward, one nation under God once again.

Thank you Bradley Byrne, your staff, your family….you give me hope. I pray for strength and wisdom to speak for truth at a time when there is so much deception. The Lord is not the author of confusion…so stand firm in your walk. Blessings on you all.

October 5, 2019

i pray not just for protection and strength for Rep. Bryne, but that as a light for Jesus he will prosper. How much we need men of integrity and faith in government. May he have wisdom and discernment for every situation. God bless!

I can’t tell you how encouraged I am to hear of a representative in Congress who actually desires prayer! With all the news coverage we get, we think there are no real, rational beings in service to our country within the House! I will definitely be praying for Rep. Byrne and his staff! Please don’t get tired of standing aline. God is with you!!

    October 6, 2019

    Amen! Keep fighting the good fight. We are holding up your hands. May all this corruption be revealed in Jesus Name!

Dear Congressman Byrne,

Thank you for your service in the U.S. House of Representatives and your stand for The Lord our God, The Only Way, Truth and Life as well as The One Who has so blessed America.

I’m lifting you up before God The Father for strength, perseverance and wisdom in this atmosphere of intense partisan divide.

May you and others of like Precious Faith in Washington, regardless of political or denominational attachment, be Salt and Light, and, in so doing, draw many to The Savior Jesus Christ,

our, and The Nations’ only, Hope.

Abba Father I thank you for congressmen that still really care for this country and it’s people. I pray for congressman Byrne will receive your wisdom during these crazy days in Washington, encourage him and his staff by Your strength and wisdom. We know you are more powerful than the evil in going on in our government, so ask you to soften all the hearts of every worker In Washington & will seek your will. In your Son Jesus I ask. Amen & Amen

Father God, Lord of all, Defender and Savior, Redeemer and Friend; we humble ourselves before you and ask for your power and peace to rest upon these men and women who are trying to represent the people who have entrusted them with sound leadership and judgement in conducting the business of state. I pray for the mantle of the Shepherd King, David, to hover over them as they seek Your wisdom and Your Will. We acknowledge that You alone are Sovereign and know the way America will go. Turn our Nation back to the Path of Right living, God honoring way set forth in our Constitution. We pray that those who obstruct justice, seek chaos and dismantlement of our Constitution, of order and civility within the governing bodies, seek power even to the misleading and destruction of the country……be removed from those places of power and representation. Give Your supernatural faith and trust to all those who stand on the solid Rock of the Bible, the Lord Jesus Christ. May Your ways be honored and Your great name lifted up in every state in this Union of states in America. Turn the fierce tide of hate and manipulation, deception, and set us on Your Historic Path to be One Nation Under God. So be it….Amen!

Father. Thank You for the authority of the church. The blood bought redeemed by our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ in whose name we pray. Thank You for seating us in heavenly places at the right hand of God in Christ Jesus. I declare that You are for us and as You are for us who can be against us? Expose and Thwart the plans of the enemy. Holy Spirit hover over congress and bring forth that which You desire for our nation. Reveal a Yourself to all of us in a greater way and let an awesome respect and fear of God fall on Your people and congress. Purify us moreso that we may align with Your heart and bring forth Your plans and purpose for our nation. Is there not a cause Lord? As we face the obstacles before us we know You are bringing us into the destiny written for this nation. Encourage and strengthen and gather more politicians to Yourself for this destiny. Amen.

Father, we thank you that you have put faithful people like Bradley Burn in office. We stand with him now and share his frustration and burdens. Lift him up and give him patience at this time. Also give him direction to understand his role in opposing this hijacking of our our congress. Give him faith to rest in You. For the foolishness of God far surpasses the Wisdom of even the wisest man. We see only part of what You are doing, but we rest on the principles laid out in Your Word. Over and over You say the righteous will overcome and the those that oppose your ways will be be brought to justice. The evil will wither and be destroyed and You will take care of those that Trust in you. We stand on these promises by faith. We also pray against the forces of darkness, the lawlessness , that has such a grip on our government right now. May the light of Truth shine brightly on this entire mess and may the waring angels drive out the demonic presence of deception and perversion to allow justice to finally come to our nation.

    I totally agree with you that it is a mess. I am an American and a permanent resident of Canada residing in Oliver BC. I can’t believe how President Trump and his family have been treated! I thought we were to respect our president.

October 5, 2019

God, the Holy Spirit, loves it when His children come running to him saying, “Help, me!” In Proverbs 3:5-6, it says, “Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In ALL your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” And in Psalms 37:4-5, “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart (He will put His holy desires for you in your heart). Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He WILL DO IT!” Remind Him of what He said, “My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” Begin thanking Him for the wisdom that only He can give, and then walk it out by faith! Blessings, peace, and joy to you, Servant of the Most High God!

October 5, 2019

The devil is in the mix! Father GOD, In the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our LORD and Savior, and by the authority that You have given to your children, we bind satan and all his minions in Jesus Name. We plead the precious Blood of our LORD and Savior over all your children in government who are called by You to do your will. We claim the enemies defeat and command the walls of opposition to your divine purpose to fall right down now. Let us sing the songs of victory because YOU LORD will not be outwitted by the enemy who is under your feet. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Dear Representative Byrne

Thank you for reaching out for prayer. That power will aid you in unexpected ways, and will provide the wisdom you seek.

Be prepared for a strengthening of relationships you already have in Congress and for open doors for new relationships that God will use to bring Congess back on course.

Be encouraged. God is not deaf to the prayers of the saints and to the cries of our leaders like yourself.

Thank u for your service and for your knee bowed to Almighty God.

Deborah Welch

Dear Lord God Almighty, Father of Glory, unto You we bow, humbly lifting Rep.Byrne & those who work with & for him to You and Your eternal purposes & intents for this time in history. We ask that You guide each one of them in Your path that will direct and lead them with decisions and action that bring forth Your purposes for American as a nation of refuge. A nation that is one nation of people in unity under You as a their God.
There are many spokes to a wheel Lord Jesus, and this representative sees & understands his “spoke to that wheel” that he serves needs to be strong & yet is unable to perform when the inner wheel is damaged. Father we need Your intervention in this matter. We confess before you and heaven now…we can not fix this inner wheel. We have sin in compromising, losing our way in Your purposes. Only You can root out the cancerous destruction and grant Your servants devoted to Your Ways the Holy wisdom understanding to take the right steps of Your right arm. We ask that protection of angels be about Rep.Byrne’s responsiblities for the two committees, Arm Forces & Education & Labor. Both of these departments need Your Holy wisdom applied to their proper working. The cancer of the anti-christ spirit has already infected these departments and others.
Keep Rep. Byrne and his staff humble and meek, allowing simultaneously the maturity of Christ inwardly grow within them that they like Christ will increase in wisdom, in stature & in favor with You and man.
To those who don’t know You and those who don’t lean wholly on You, the situation looks hopeless. But I know as many others, You will WILL be done to serve Your eternal intent in the ages to come and as long as there is this earth there will be a “United States of America”. George Washington saw it centuries earlier. We know there will be pain. Grant each us devoted to Your purposes the stamina strength and Holy devotion to see this through.
Be Blessed Father and thank You for hearing our concerns about our lost way. In Christ we pray.

October 5, 2019

Thank you God for devoted workers like Congressman Bryne & his staff! That there are such Godly people in that office in the danger zone for the people of America.
we ask You to continue to be our leader in this Congressional office as we bring these requests to Your people.
‘Jesus we love you, we’re sorry for our own sin & ask forgiveness. Thank you for Your Love & direction in our life & may we continue to listen for your leadership in our office.
We’re saying all this in the Holy Name of the Father, Son & Holy Spirit, Amen.

We respect your work & your request for prayer in this time of need, we’ll continue to pray for Godly influence in your office. Ms Dietz

October 5, 2019

Pray that it is brought to the average American’s attention: The Democrats do nothing but accuse and the Satan means accuser.

October 5, 2019

God bless you as you obey His will day in and day out with the assignment He has given you for our nation. My Grandpa used to say, “Sis, keep your eyes on JESUS….”…..no matter what is going on around you. May your eyes be anointed daily to “see”, your ears to “hear” and your mind to “comprehend” what He desires for you to see, hear, understand and do. May He cover you and your family with His precious blood for continuous protection, in Jesus’ Name. God bless you! “Eyes on Jesus!”

Praising God He has heard us Congressman Byrne and answered before we called, rejoicing that deep cries out to deep as we have put our hope in God alone (Ps42:1,7 11), we believe the Spirit of the LORD rests on us, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and power, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD, confident we bear the fruit from the roots of the Branch of Jesse (Is11:2-3) and President Trump declares His Glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all the peoples. For Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; He is to be feared above all gods.”-Ps96:3-4

Congressman Byrne,
I am praying for you. I cannot even imagine your frustration. I experience that just listening to the news of the day. I wanted to encourage you with Ephesians 6:13. The last part of this verse impresses me, “and having done all, to stand firm.” We need you to stand firm regardless of all the garbage. Of course, I am praying for good work to get done, but in the meantime this is your mandate.
Your willingness to serve is appreciated. May God continue to bless you.

Praying for Congressman Byrne and his staff. As a fellow Alabama citizen. Stand firm in the power of The Lord.
You are a Child of God. John 1:12, His Kingdom and Priest to serve before the Lord. Rev 1:6; He trains your hands for battle Ps 18:34; God is right there with you, you shall not be moved or shaken. Ps 16:8

May they show you grace and peace, as God, our Father, and Jesus, our Savior, directs your path and your mission with his all encompassing love, mercy and grace, his protection and watchcare over you and your family. I stand in agreement with all the prayers for you and wishing I (in Virginia) had such a representative. Many blessings and may true wisdom be yours.

The Lord fights our battles. 2 Chronicles 32:8. The Lord gives victory over our enemies. Psalm 59:10 Psalm 23 says He is Your Shepherd, He leads, He restores, For His name sake Psalm 46:10-11 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nation’s, I will be exalted in the earth! 11 The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge praying for You, President Trump, Vice President Pence and those in darkness, blinded and sin.

    God’s grace, peace, protection and guiding wisdom be with you, Congressman Byrne. He defends and prospers what is righteous and He has already defeated Satan and all his works when He proclaimed on the cross, “It is finished!” May that reality manifest itself day by day, more increasingly, in all walks of public and private life, to the glory of His name❣

Patricia Kirby

Thank you, Congressman Bryne for your heart for God and for our country. We stand with you and feel your frustration, I got up early to pray again this morning and God gave me Isaiah 56 in answer to my cries to him. I prayed it through and rejoice in his goodness to hear us and to answer.

T is so encouraging to know that someone in Washington is there because they love this country, love God, and are lights shining in the darkness. So many are praying for you and America. God’s heart is for you and that His Kingdom will come and His Will is done in this country. Thank you.
