I Prayed have prayed
O God our King, lead us now. Make us willing to be willing to obey Your command to pray for those in authority over us (2 Tm 2:1-4). Thank you for the intercessors--help each one through this time.
Many, many people have contacted IFA to say that they refuse to pray for President Biden. We share this comment with you, which we think is a compelling testimony. It was posted on the article by IFA President/CEO Dave Kubal: President Biden’s Administration and the Sovereignty of God.  With around 400 comments and more than 20K Read Mores, you should check it out if you haven’t read it. You can also pray through the article with Dave Kubal HERE, with the recorded Thursday Pray with Others Live Webcast.

Here is what Phil wrote:

It was a failure on my part when years ago after President Obama was elected that I stopped praying our leaders then.

I had been part of the Presidential Prayer team under Bush, but when Obama took over I stopped. For whatever reason I didn’t trust the new President to have the best interest of the Nation. Later, this  was confirmed to me by his treatment of Israel through its Prime Minister which to me is the first thing I watch in all our Presidents ( I fear President Biden would do the same, if not worse).

But I don’t want to do the same mistake now. I intend to keep on praying for our Nation and our new leaders whether I agree with them or not ( I do not at all).

I believe in prayer 🙏 and God hears them. His response is according to His will. I would not ask for anything different than His will.

Am I concerned? Extremely. Am I expecting Christians to experience restrictions? Most certainly.  Am I fearful or at least intimidated? Of what? What can men do to me? Didn’t we say that God is still in control? Those very things are what compel me to pray even for the people I do not really trust.

I expect things to be quite different in the near future. So be it. I am not going to worry about it ahead of time. Sufficient for the day are its own problems. So, as often is the case when we have nowhere else to go, we call upon the Lord in prayer.

Intercessor, what do you think? Can you relate to Phil? Can you learn from his experience? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Oh how i relate. I have been struggling with this myself as I do not want to pray for any of this administration. However I would rather obey God and pray according to his word as the Lord is in control. Praise the Lord.

Yes…a thousand times yes! Who (but God) knows what would have been done differently if His people had prayed. I do believe we are experiencing God’s will in this election…for His good purposes. Perhaps it is discipline upon America or perhaps just the progression that needs to take place for the end times scenario. At any rate, we are commanded to pray for our leaders and this time around, I want to be counted as being faithful. Thanks for the great reminder!

Thank you for your thoughts. I was exactly the same way. I believe we as Christians have learned some hard lessons. We may never know until we get to Heaven what a prayer, heard by God on a particular day did. It really amazes me to hear so many people praying together not only on IFA’s sight but the others like Capitol Hill Prayer team and I’m extremely thankful and proud to share in prayer with these Brothers and Sisters. I get excited at times to think that we are coming together for our nation and excited to see what God is going to do. Keep a pen and pad handy and write the answers down. TESTIMONIES are coming!!! “And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭12:11‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Hosea 8:4. “They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.”
God is talking of Israel, but it could be said today. Only with the love of Jesus can I pray for the ungodly Motley Crew in Washington D.C.
Dear LORD God Almighty, I pray they that are in control have their hearts of stone replaced with hearts of flesh, accept Jesus as LORD and Savior before too everlasting late. It’s a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God. I feel sorry for them. They will have Much to answer for! Jesus help them. Most of all I pray Jesus help us, deliver us from this Horde of evil, by the Holy power of the shed blood of Jesus, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, in the precious name of Jesus I pray, Amen
God bless, Maranatha!🙏🏼

Yes we need to pray our leaders and for those leaders who do not serve the Lord. Since we fight against demonic powers, that is where the focus is. Matthew 16:19, Jesus said, And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you find on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loose in heaven. So we can begin by praying; Father we pray over our leaders and bind pride, lies and deceit on earth and Lord we loose truth and justice over the United States of America in Jesus’s name. We pray those who speak lies, that their mouths will be stopped. We pray for the people’s eyes be opened and receive truth, so that they may see Jesus. Praise Your Holy name in Jesus’s name we pray amen. Cynthia

You have to pray for Biden, we need God’s will done on earth over everyone.
But, you can pray for God’s judgement and His perfect will.
God is the perfect judge and He will bring His justice, eventually.
Meanwhile, God can continue do His good work, even in the darkness — remember Ester.

I too have been choking on praying for them, but I have to step up and agree with Phil. I need to repent; He is not asking us to love them “in the natural”. I am being disobedient to my Heavenly Father and I love Him more than I disdain them. I think the Lord asks us to pray for our enemies because it frees our hearts from deadly bitterness and who knows, maybe some would repent and be saved.

    January 29, 2021

    I so agree, but I know many of us were praying that God’s will be done and for whatever reason, I believe that has happened. For a while, I thought sure that the fraud would be dealt with and the outcome, different. It seemed so strange to me that everything President Trump tried to right this wrong met with opposition, or a blind eye. No one would even look at the evidence!I found that to be strange. We KNOW Satan has only limited power and is in effect, on a leash held by God. If God wanted President Trump to still be President, he would have been. Whether this is discipline upon an America that insists on kicking God out of every vestige of public life or whether is is simply setting the stage for the coming lawless one, I do not know. I do know God is still on His Throne and is a fair, just and loving ruler.

Yes, we must pray for our leaders. Jesus, told us to pray for our enemies. Is it hard to pray for them?absolutely! When I start praying for them I start crying as I pray for them , because I don’t want to pray for them. I get angry. But out of obedience let’s pray for them. Leave the rest to the Lord. The only difference between them and us is Jesus . His mercy and grace .We all need Jesus!

I too heard many, (prophets) say Trump had 4 more years. I fell into that, well they were wrong. But that’s what I get for not asking for God’s direction.I believe this was fear, keeping my eyes on man. I am not angry at man. I learned that, that’s what will happen when we take our eyes off of the one who has all the answers. The Old Testament is full of history. Disobedience brings GOD’S judgment. We are Not excluded. I will pray even More for our leaders. Let’s learn from this.

      I pray all Christians look to God and not man. Since Jesus told us he will return, I recommend trusting in that. I read a lot about prophecy’s of men to fix our problems. Is that not what the Jews thought Christ would do? Pray for God’s mercy, good men act as Jesus instructed and pray for judgment of the wicked.

      Peace

Years ago I heard someone say that when we come to the Lord to pray for an enemy, and struggle to find words to pray for them, we can merely ask Him to make them into the person He created them to be.

I agree with Phil. I didn’t pray for Obama more than a few times but once when I prayed i felt God give me real insight into His heart for Mr. Obama. I confess and repent for not being diligent to pray more for Obama because of my total distain for him. But this article has helped me to see how important it is to pray for our leaders even the ones we consider evil. It is a command from God to do so.

I pray all believers will follow Gods command to pray for those in authority and pray for our enemies. Proverbs 25:21,22. Pray for Biden to come to The Lord, for Dreams and visions, a visitation from Jesus. Pray for the Holy Spirit to fill the White House, the Oval Office directing the affairs of our nation. For Gods will to be done, and every root of evil to be exposed and cast out.

I stronger believe that if we prayer for Joe Biden and kamela Harris as if they are actually the President and VP that I would be praying a lie.We all know they did not honestly or rightfully win the election.If I pray knowing this is false it’s like I’m an accessory to their crimes.I can pray for them,just not in these positions.

For these new leaders I pray, “I pray your best for them, Lord.” That is all of my prayer time I give them. Then I ask God to let me be like David in this season, one step ahead of Saul. David did not fight Saul, but he did not sub,it to his own undoing and harm. He even was tested with chances to kill saul, but he left the vhange for regime change be of God’s chosing. And thos ethat joined David, they were in God’s will as well. Guerilla warfare in the spirit, to harass and hinder without physical engagement….

God calls us to pray for ALL leaders regardless. No matter what God can use our leaders however He wants but not praying for our leaders leads to hardened hearts and God doesn’t want us to have that.

    January 23, 2021

    We can and certainly should pray for these individuals, as we would for anyone else needing salvation.
    However, I feel strongly NOT to pray for them as legitimate leaders and officeholders. They are not. That would be coming into agreement with a lie, and with the Liar.

    Nope.

    We must not judge by appearances, but make an honest judgement.

Isaiah 54:17

17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

This is my prayer for all Americans, all of us, including the 2021 administration! GOD will lead you how to pray in every situation. Obedience is better than sacrifice, so pray scripture with the LORD’S Leading you!

Ephesians 5:6,7,8,11,12,13

6 Let no man deceive you with vain words; for because of these things cometh the wrath of GOD upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them. 8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the LORD: walk as children of light. 11 AND HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP WITH THE UNFRUITFUL WORKS OF DARKNESS, BUT RATHER REPROVE THEM! 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light!

According to scripture we are to reprove evil doers so they can come to the LIGHT! GOD Will tell you how to pray! Do not let any person tell you how to pray.

1 John 2:27

27 But the Anointing which ye have received of HIM abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but the same Anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in HIM.

HOLY SPIRIT will guide you into all truth and tell you how to pray! So in your prayers just ask GOD what to say for this administration. Stay encouraged saints, read the entire Bible, and trust your FATHER in Heaven in and for all things!

FATHER GOD please protect us all that trust in YOU, and instruct us how to pray as YOU would have us to. Speak through YOUR children LORD and keep us in perfect peace as we keep our minds stayed on YOU and YOU alone in JESUS MIGHTY Name! Amen!

Believers across our country prayed, fasted, and repented. Still this happened. We know that God hears our prayers. So now we must continue to pray, seek the Lord and dig into His word for wisdom and guidance as to what to do next. Whatever our response, it must be in love, praying for those with whom we disagree, even those who despitfully use us as our Lord Jesus taught. Granted, we need supernatural help to do this but maybe this is one of the reasons God has allowed this calamity to come upon our country that we would turn to Him with more passion than ever before. I have never prayed as much. I have rarely asked the Lord to examine my heart as I am now. I am sure the Lord is using this time to work in His people.

I pray for President Trump and will continue. I continue to cry out for justice. But at this moment Biden, Harris, and the powers behind them are in the position to make crucial policy decisions. So we cry out to the Lord for protection, to intervene and mitigate their evil agenda.

If I can pray for Trump that he would grow spiritually and submit himself to the rulership of Christ I can do the same for members of the new administration even as I pray that wrong doing would be exposed and properly dealt with.

    You nailed it! Something that grieves my heart, is when Christians say that they refuse to pray for an unrighteous administration. Worse yet, when a seed of bitterness springs up which will defile many. They will know that we are Christians when they see our love.(not our hatred, bitterness and negativity). Is it easy? Nope. That’s why we must persevere until the end! Will he find us faithful? I see this as a giant test for the christians. Are we being sifted out? Be a part of the remnant, not of those who will give up their faith and shrink back!!!!
    2 Timothy 2:12
    Living Bible
    “12 And if we think that our present service for him is hard, just remember that some day we are going to sit with him and rule with him. But if we give up when we suffer, and turn against Christ, then he must turn against us.”
    Don’t give up and turn back. “I’m too far from where I started and too close to where I’m going, to ever think of turning around!”
    Our saviour is not our president, nor a politcal patry, not even our govt. Our Saviour is Jesus Christ, the Lion of Judah. Perhaps there needs to be a reset of our prayer life from praying for our country, to praying for the hearts of men to come to the Saviour in confession of sin and repentance with a contrite heart.
    Oh my Christian Brothers and Sisters don’t lose hope! Finally, my heart was so encouraged by the words to this hymn last Sunday.
    God is still on the throne!
    “Have you started for glory and Heaven?
    Have you left this old world far behind?
    In your heart is the Comforter dwelling?
    Can you say, Praise the Lord, He is mine?
    Have the ones that once walked on the highway
    Gone back, and you seem all alone?
    Keep your eyes on the prize,
    For the home in the skies;
    God is still on the throne.

    Refrain

    God is still on the throne,
    And He will remember His own;
    Tho’ trials may press us and burdens distress us,
    He never will leave us alone;
    God is still on the throne,
    He never forsaketh His own;
    His promise is true, He will not forget you,
    God is still on the throne.

    Burdened soul, is your heart growing weary
    With the toil and the heat of the day?
    Does it seem that your path is more thorny
    As you journey along on life’s way?
    Go away and in secret before Him
    Tell your grief to the Savior alone;
    He will lighten your care,
    For He still answers prayer;
    God is still on the throne.”

    Keep looking up with your eyes on the Saviour! Man will let you down, but we have our anchor in the Solid rock of Jesus and His word!

Dearest Intercessors and brothers and sisters in Christ,

Please be very careful and do not call Biden something the Lord won’t even call him. In the prophetic message below, through Kat Kerr’s prophetic message, the Lord says Biden is an “illegitimate”( president) and is the “villain”.

If you are unfamiliar with Kat Kerr, she stood her ground regarding President Trump winning in 2016 when many did not believe it.

Yes. There was a sham inauguration. Yes. News outlets feel they have to use that title with Biden, but we don’t have to, especially amongst each other.

The Lord does not want us in ANY FORM what so ever to be validating a lie of the devil and inadvertently or innocently siding with evil’s plots.

Below is a video link that has Kat Kerr’s most recent prophetic message. The whole program is riveting and filled with the Lord’s presence.

Most importantly, the Lord gives very specific instructions to us during this time, including being careful calling Biden what he is not to the Lord.

We have received many words of encouragement regarding watching our words very carefully. What we call Biden is also very much so a part of it as this program confirms through Kat Kerr, Hank Kunneman, as well as Mario Marullo.

The Lord wants us completely on His side with His plans during this season, which includes rejecting what the left calls Biden. What we say in this regard is either siding with God’s plans or the enemies. Kat Kerr’s prophetic word is on the 2nd half of this video.

https://flashpoint.govictory.com/episode/its-about-time-with-hank-kunneman-kat-kerr-mario-murillo-jan-21/

May God Bless you and your households.

      I know God is not done yet! I know He has not ignored our cries. He is never late or early but ALWAYS on time! In my opinion, I believe God is dealing with each one of us individually (The Church) . So let us continue to persevere in the things of the Lord and wait on Him.

Lord I thank you for Your being the King of kings And the Lord of lord’s.
Lord I pray Your will and guidance for President Biden for him to lead and make decisions not lead by men but by You and based on the truth of Your Word. Lord show him how to lead in Integrity. When needed help him delegate to those who will be led to accomplish Your will. Lord surround him with godly men and prayer warriors to overpower the heavenly battles through intercessory prayer.
Lord may he communicate in Truth vs lies and deception being convicted whenever he uses anything but the Truth May he have respect for all people of all faiths and see all of us as the human race not by our skin color.
Lord I pray that he will have respect for the babies (human beings) in the womb and those born and be convicted to reverse the decisions he’s made over abortion. Lord I pray every women and father considering abortion would get an ultrasound and have conviction to either keep or put up for adoption their child
Lord help him to have respect for our military, our police and all our men and women holding positions in our government regardless of what party.
Lord thank you that what I am asking will be done not by my will but by Yours. I pray Your steadfast Love and mercy and faithfulness over these requests. In Jesus name. Amen

    Yes, when we pray for leaders we know are wicked, we pray for their salvation. We were enemies of the LORD before we were saved. Pray that they will accomplish God’s will even though they don’t know it. God uses our prayers to open His way into their lives, I believe.

      So well said, Cassandra. Most definitely praying for salvation AND openness for President Biden and VP Harris towards people in the faith community.

Patricia
January 22, 2021

This is a difficult subject…….I believe that this administration is illegitimate. And evil.
I know God is supreme and His will was done. WHY….
that is the question.

” The belief in a supernatural source of evil ( devil ) is not necessary, men alone are quite capable of every wickedness.” Quote of Joseph Conrad.

I pray that God will change their evil hearts and minds. Right now, my wounded heart is healing and I am trying very hard to see God’s reasons but I know He does not reveal all to us. Let’s all pray that our hearts heal soon. And we need to pray for The Church
to remain strong and remain true to THE WORD, all of scripture.

Janice
January 22, 2021

Months before Nov.3 I was praying for Biden and Harris and I continue to pray for them. We are told to pray 1Tim 2:1-4. They too are created by God and made in his image. Even more so for those who oppose us. God can turn the heads of rulers.

I am still waiting to see what God is doing and wondering what his purpose for these events are?

I am shocked, disappointed, angry and frustrated that they are “sweeping voter fraud, foreign involvement in elections and violence and intimidation against elected officials under the carpet.” These are the elected officials we are to trust with our money, freedom and lives. What kind of inheritance are we leaving for our children and grandchildren?

JoAnn Gregory
January 22, 2021

I agree. We need to pray for our government leaders more than ever. I pray that God will give them insight and wisdom and show himself to them in a mighty way. It’s never too late to turn around. We need to be in frequent, fervent prayer on behalf of our children and grandchildren.

Scotts Singletary
January 22, 2021

Amen I agree! Further it Says in 1st Samuel 12:14 that even if the king doesn’t follow ME, if you follow ME, then the King will follow ME!
“IF YOU FEAR THE LORD AND SERVE HIM AND OBEY HIS VOICE AND DO NOT REBEL AGAINST THE COMMANDMENT OF THE LORD,THEN BOTH YOU AND THE KING WHO REIGNS OVER YOU WILL CONTINUE FOLLOWING THE LORD YOUR GOD.”

January 22, 2021

“The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1,2

Of course, I relate to Phil but as I pray “Your kingdom come, Your will be done,” I become obligated to obey His word. He is still God and He always will be God. I believe the Church must move more into unity and being His light and His hands instead of constantly seeking His hand.

Just yesterday the new president signed a bill to spend millions on more abortions for other countries. This is murder and also shows that he is paying Satan for giving him this presidency. One of the first things! How can we not see that more human babies will be murdered by our country and we are to pray for this evil man?Why not give them the morning after pill. It works for three days. Why? Because Satan and his evil want the sacrifice. The Jewish people used to do for Baal the devil. America needs to see this. Tell your friends expose him we can never get rid of these plagues as long as we let this continue. Billion babies world wide. This is hell Why are we praying for this man pray our people see this.

    Horrified by what you have shared Sandra. Will share with others.

    There is no coven or satanic temple that the Holy Spirit cannot reach. Lord your judgment is coming, the blood of the innocent children cries out. Lord we ask that you would deal with this and rebuke your enemy. Lord your people cried out for President Trump to be elected to stop this wickedness. Lord this sacrifice could also be a spell before the impeachment trial next week. Lord the enemy is the author of these executive orders. Lord please deal with your enemy and deliver. Turn the hearts of the mothers and fathers to their unborn children. Lord please move mightily.

    This is an abomination in your sight.

    Wow. Thank you for sharing and your insight. Although, I respect the heart of the writer of this article very much, something did not feel right with me after reading it. I may have misinterpreted the intent of the article, but it felt like it is unintentionally validating a deceit. I am sure that was not intended, but the disappointment of the left’s behavior is so fresh that I am little more sensitive these days than usual.

    We all have different experiences, but I believe with all my heart and soul that this man is not a legitimate President. The Lord has literally guided me to prophetic words from trusted prophets that encourage me to remain standing for He WILL reveal enough corruption to remove this illegitimate president from power.

    After reading this article, I walked away feeling guilty about not being completely on board with it’s request, but I could not stop thinking about this phony administration’s murderous intent with unborn babies around the world.

    After seeking the Lord on this, I saw your comment and it stood out like a beaming light. It confirmed my feelings and is an immediate answer to prayer.

    I am standing on God’s promises through the prophets and will continue to be open for whatever the Lord leads me to pray for.

    Sandra,
    Be at peace. We are going to be alright. This battle is the Lord’s. None of this is a surprise to Him. We have to trust Him and pray…even for our enemies, even for the new president. Why? Because the Lord wants us to. He commands it. We all have to get past our feelings. Hard to say, but, in this hour and every hour, we need to follow and stand on the word of God and not sin. I just have to remember that His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts.

Wow! Phil, I feel this so deeply. I like you, refused to pray for former president Barak Obama, during his time on office.the Lord had showed me dreams how to pray for him and I stubbornly refused. I have since repented for my disobedience to pray. Intercessors have to humble themselves and pray as God leads us. We have to lay our opinions at the foot of the cross. I think many christians are refusing to seperate policy from person. We can pray for this administration. That doesn’t mean we agree with anything they stand for. especially anti biblical values…BUT, we can pray that God do a miracle, that greatest miracle is salvation.
God can do anything, his ways are so much better than ours. I’ve had the same issues as you. People have been telling me they won’t pray for the new administration, and are very angry. I don’t reply to their frustration, name calling, or their posture, because that was once me.
I am praying for the Intercessors to be refreshed and pray harder. While watching a prayer call a thought came into my mind and I felt like the Lord challenged me. So with this, I’m going to challenge every Intercessor who reads this.

If we prayed fervently for President Trump, knowing he was pro life, pro Israel, and pro religious liberty.

Why wouldn’t we pray even harder now, that we have a president who does not do any of those things?

Why would we hold our breath in anger? Why would we get off the walls and leave our post? It’s pretty scary to think about the direction our nation could take under this new leadership. Our lack of prayers will not benefit this situation at all,it would actually be worse. I choose to rest secure in the Sovereignty of God. To me this seems to be an invitation from God to ramp up our intercession like never before.

I stand firm because I know who God is. He is the God of Justice! He is the faithful and true! He isn’t shaken or wringing his hands by this new administration. We shouldn’t either.

Intercessors let’s stop throwing stones at the others who choose to pray differently than you. Let’s pray for one another to have renewed hope. Our hope is in the Lord and not man. Let’s pray for prophetic people who are under attack right now and trying to be silenced. Let’s pray for the body of Christ to rise up in faith and walk in unity. Let’s do what the bible says, and pray for our leaders.

Let’s continue to intercede and believe that God will do the rest. Let’s continue to pray for this nation.
Your prayers are desperately needed.

1 Timothy

2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

I understand the instructions from GOD and I will obey. I believe some people took exception with some things in the article. It’s one thing to pray for our leaders and an entirely different thing to make statements like people get the government they deserve. These 2 statements are mutually exclusive. Most Christians I know and know of do not deserve this administration. We prayed, we fasted, we blessed those that cursed us and despitefully used us, and believed and is still believing that since we have done all we know to do; we now stand to see the salvation of GOD! I believe if we as Christians consistently quote and obey scripture mostly, our entire world would be in a better place. I personally don’t want anyone to go to hell either so I pray for salvation for all, especially those that have shown themselves to be my enemies! In this, GOD always changes my heart to be compassionate for those who are deceived by satan. May GOD give us HIS Strength to obey HIS WORD in all things in JESUS Name! Amen!

Jeremiah 29 v 7 KJV

7 And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the Lord for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.

Saints we must pray for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and the new administration for there to be a restraint of wickedness and for the Lord to push back the powers of darkness. We must ask the Lord to rebuke the enemy.

Are we as intercessors going to allow the enemy to score another goal by having us not to pray?

Maybe by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris reading our prayers, the Lord can touch their hearts.

But based on the last 24 hours, the Lord will be using this to get the whole church on its knees in prayer regardless of political persuasion. Such wickedness from the pit of hell already.

I was in tears yesterday when I read about the Isis suicide bomb attack yesterday in Iraq.

We do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities. Now is not the time to give up. The whole world will weep because of what has happened to President Trump.

Lord we are asking for you to move in our hearts. We are praying for a restraint of the powers of darkness. Lord we look to you alone to deliver us. Thank you for using President Trump. Please raise up men and women that you can use in government to speak on your behalf.

Lord you know our heart’s desire as to who we want to be the President. Lord you have allowed this wickedness to refine us and turn to you. We believe that when the enemy comes like a flood, your Holy Spirit will raise a standard. Lord your judgment will come and you will shake everything that can be shaken. In judgment remember mercy.

Lord come quickly to deliver and deal with your enemy. Lord we cry out to you for the rebuke.

In Jesus name.

Amen

I will continue to pray for God’s TRUTH AND LIGHT to shine on our nation.

I will not pray for an illegitimate administration that worked with foreign governments to enrich themselves, that has a long history of corruption, plus a long history of supporting the killing of the unborn.
No…NOT MY PRESIDENT!

God places kings and leaders not illegal criminals. I rebuke the evil spirits and witchcraft and satanic spirits that are covering this crime.

Truth will be revealed. Praise God.

    I will continue to pray that all the evil deeds Biden and the left are intending over this nation and unborn babies around the world will be thwarted, stopped,and backfire indeed.

    I will continue to stand with the tested and trusted prophets that a landslide of corruption will be exposed to the level to prove to the world he is completely illegitimate in the position he now holds and will be removed.

    Whenever praying for the souls of the left, I become more compelled to put adequate time into praying for all those that have been brazenly persecuted by the left for seeking righteousness. Some are in hiding due to death threats because of siding with President Trump’s Administration and/or free speech.

    I fully empathize with how you feel and am praying in a similar way.

    This video will really encourage you as it features God fearing pastors and prophets that are still standing on God’s promises regarding this stolen election. This is a confirmation regarding your firm stance on not acknowledging the title Biden and the left have stolen. Good work, Christian soldier!!! Within the prophetic message Kat Kerr shares that the Lord calls Biden “illegitimate” and “villain”. It is a powerful program. Hope you enjoy it.

I am in agreement with Phil, very well said.
May the Lord move in power for our country and may we see leadership in our Nation that agrees with those that voted for them or at least know they were voted in properly and will follow the Constitution as our Founding Fathers have Penned. I also look for a leader that will follow the Truth of the BIBLE and follow those plans in every decision.
May the Lord bless us and keep us and may His face Shine upon us and give us peace…. IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and (other nations that are watching what we do.
