I Prayed have prayed
Lord God, have mercy on this nation and mercy on us.
From Give Him 15. As opposed to a teaching for today’s post, I’m going to share from my heart regarding the current condition and future of America.

First of all, I’m as convinced as I’ve ever been that we will see a sweeping revival and reformation in our nation. This includes the restoration of our God-given assignment to the nations of the world. These things – revival, reformation, and restoration – are what the statement “America shall be saved” means to me. My first allegiance is to the Kingdom of God, not the United States, and always will be. However, I do love America with what I am confident is a God-given love. I believe wholeheartedly in His calling to this nation and in the Judeo-Christian ideals upon which we were founded. I also have a natural love for America – it is appropriate to love and honor one’s homeland. I see no contradiction between my patriotic love for America and my first love, God; to me, they are completely compatible.

Having said this, I am not in denial of America’s backsliding and of our great need. Without the aforementioned reviving, we would no doubt perish, at least spiritually, and forfeit our destiny. Nothing else can possibly save our nation.

Like many of you, I am angry over America’s condition, at times, but I also grieve deeply over it, and am very embarrassed.

Who would have thought a generation ago that the primary battle of our time would be over the legality of killing babies in the womb (and even the survivors of this cruelty)? Add to this the harvesting and selling of their body parts, and one can only weep. What have we become?

Who would have believed that our government would one day tell parents they had no right to know what the state was teaching their children, much less doing to their childrens’ bodies? Sterilization and mutilation!? Are you serious? It is insidious, insane, and should be criminal.

Who would have believed America’s leaders would sanction half-nude perverts dancing for kindergartners while rubbing their crotch? Our President, Vice President, former Speaker of the House, Senate Majority Leader, and the members of their Party in Congress have no problem with this. If they do, they certainly haven’t said so.

Who would have believed that our once great America would be led by a senile man who can barely communicate, habitual liars in Congress, and Supreme Court Justices who claim that defining the difference between a man and a woman was too difficult for them? Men now wear dresses to the President’s Cabinet meetings.

Who would have believed that our government would one day lead us into debt to the tune of TRILLIONS of dollars, while continuing to take billions of our hard-earned dollars for foolish projects and personal gain? How narcissistic do leaders have to be to vote for the creation of buildings and trails bearing their name, while millions of Americans must choose between heat, medicine, or food?

How self-absorbed and addicted to power must leaders become to prioritize future votes – through open borders – over the lives of a hundred thousand young people killed annually by fentanyl? They could end this tragedy almost overnight if they wanted to. Trump had it reduced drastically by controlling the border. The sad truth is that those in charge care more about votes than they do these young lives. Their hesitation to even talk about these immeasurable losses – how often do you hear them bring it up? – betrays their priorities.

How deceived must a people become to believe Marxism could succeed…to be okay with a leader of our military who is more loyal to Chinese leaders than our own President…to believe a “woke” but weak military is acceptable in today’s world, that anything but strength could guarantee peace…that anarchy and violence now trumps law and order…and that police are bad while criminals are victims?

As much as we don’t like it, God did us a huge favor in 2020 by allowing this evil to be exposed. The truth is that the swamp is far deeper and larger than any of us realized. The muck and mire are putrid. Evil, corruption, and depravity rule our nation. America is lost – hopelessly lost. We are past the point of a human solution, certainly of a political one. No program, law, government, political party, or educational plan can heal America. These things can one day reform and will be essential, but they cannot generate a rebirth.

We needed to see our true condition. The word repentance is rooted in the concept of seeing and understanding clearly, of coming into increased and accurate knowledge. Repentance is more than a simple decision to choose a different direction. Americans needed to know how far we had fallen and that no President, Party, or plan could fix our nation. We must have a great awakening.

Please don’t hear that as a suggestion to back off or relent in your governmental, educational, or practical efforts. We must NOT do that! Hear this only as a plea to pray as never before. Ask for revival. Decree change and the coming of Christ’s Kingdom rule. Be His Ekklesia! Things may get a little worse, naturally speaking, before they get better. Spiritually, however, we are gaining ground and momentum. Christ’s Kingdom is increasing, just as He said it would, and HE WILL PREVAIL.

“…God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist. In hope against hope he [Abraham] believed, so that he might become a father of many nations according to that which had been spoken, ‘So shall your descendants be.’ Without becoming weak in faith he contemplated his own body, now as good as dead since he was about a hundred years old, and the deadness of Sarah’s womb; yet, with respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform.” (Romans 4:17-21 NASB)

I want to end by saying that I wish no harm to any person or group of people – nor do those of you who join me on these posts. We sincerely love and pray for the salvation of all. Our battle is spiritual and our enemies are satan and his spiritual forces. And we overcome evil with good.

Pray with me:

Father, we intercede today for this apostate nation. We have wandered far from You. Yet, we are confident that Your mercies endure forever and that mercy is our currency. Your love knows no end. Heal this land, we pray.

We declare life over the dry bones of America, and we prophesy to the wind of Holy Spirit: blow! We boldly proclaim that the doors of wickedness, destruction, perversion and darkness are closing. We declare and decree that the exposing of evil will continue. And we decree that America shall be saved and participate in earth‘s greatest revival.

We ask for encouragement to intercessors and spiritual laborers throughout our land. Strengthen them. Renew their strength. Keep their faith strong, may they never give up. Infuse them with great zeal and perseverance. We pray these things in the mighty name of Jesus, the Lord of the harvest. Amen.

Our decree:

We decree that the dry bones will live again.

Yes!! I agree with Dutch that what we have been through and now being shown is heartbreaking, the evil, the Illegal mandates, the lies, the defiance against saving babies. I am shocked that many do not understand killing babies is Murder, the Sterilization and mutilation of children, on and on, LGBT doing sexual dancing. My heart actually hurt over the last few months when I visualized what they have done. Jesus light is revealed to us, not hidden, but we may not be able to see it because we got use to some of the things that represented the world; we got use to what came out of their mouth. Only now after 3 years of Fear, Lies, mandates and not using Gods words this nation is in a mess. People are turning back to God, calling upon his name to save them. I did something today which was hard and easy, because The Holy Spirit nudged me. After reading On the 17th GH15 and Dutch suggested Eric Metaxas book is a must read to help us, plus he suggested that we send to pastors who need a nudge from God. I ordered The book called “ Letter to the American Church and mailed to pastors, then I printed off the entire GH15 that stated why he thought this book was written, plus the prayer and Decrees. Then I wrote a 3 page note attached to the letters I mailed, asking them to read the printing of GH15 and please read the book. I had the books shipped, mailed my letters today. I wrote a prayer in my short letter. I sealed the envelopes, then prayed over them, using my prayer language as the Holy Spirit directed. I did this to do something extra for God, not me, But our Father and in praying With the Hope of having Victory over taking a bold step sending these books to pastors that need a nudge from Their Father. I decree and declare that I will have victory over every work of the devil and our enemy the devil. I declare I will have victory and power over the devil, death, Hell and the Grave. I took a big step of boldness. God says in Romans 8:37 we are more than conquerors. I just want to say it felt great to do what I did because I truly believe this mess we are in is going to find a miracle from Our Father. I just want to say a Thank you to our Father in heaven and Dutch for speaking and praying from the heart. I pray blessing upon all who go the extra mile. 🧎‍♀️

Romans C. 13: vs. 1 and 2, speaks to GOD’s Authority!… and GOD removed DJT!… not man, and not fake mail-in ballots!

    It appears you are on a mission JM. Really, the sarcasm and mockery are unnecessary, your point is made.

      January 18, 2023

      Be silent!… and ask God for repentance!… before you, yourself, are added to His punishments!

Heavenly Father, The Great I Am, Jehovah Jirah, Jehovah Raffa, El Shaddai, Everlasting King, we give You praise!!! We hear the thundering of Your victory even now. Sound the trumpets and make Your glory known! Evil is defeated, it’s foothold is slipping, it will go down to the Lake of Fire. Our Lord and Savior, sits on His thrown and He has heard our pleas. All those who have called forth death to the most innocent, your mouth will go shut! God will not be mocked. Intercessors hear the words of Jesus in Revelation 22:12 “Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense, to repay everyone for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” Stand strong in our Savior’s promises and KNOW that even now He is watching over us and hears our prayers. He will answer and He will save! HALLELUJAH!

Not mentioned are the pastors who extol the amassing of worldly possessions for themselves and their followers, instead of the proclaiming of God’s Word and pursuing revival!

Father, thank you for sending us the words of Giveme15. It is true that evil has spread not only on America but the entire world that you have created but America is our homeland where we dwell and we used to be an example and inspiration for the world. We long to be that example again Father. Please raise up any and all of your followers to to set a blaze across this country of repentance and revival of the heart and minds of Americans to wipe out the filth and demonic spirits holding us hostage. Let us(the body of the church) proclaim freedom once more and end the ignorant and tyrannical government we currently have. We pray to find spiritual leaders who oppose the killing of babies, stealing the minds of our children, and approve of the abomination that goes against your natural laws of male and female. Light the torch God and let your followers keep it burning. Amen

January 18, 2023

I pray the darkness that is hovering over us has no authority over God’s people. God is victorious over Satan. Give God’s angels power and favor over all the demonic angels they are fighting against. May the darkness be lifted from our eyes, emotions and thoughts. May we truly believe as we stand and fight that God is with us and we will prevail.

Forgive us Lord here in America… I decree the evil forces will come to nothing and no longer be and I plead the blood of Jesus over America to wash us and cleanse us from our iniquities and with your blood Jesus wash our sins white as snow… Amen

January 18, 2023

Praise God for people strong enough and wise enough to proclaim healing and deliverance over this land we love! I have declared and proclaimed over our USA! Praise God for His deliverance that is coming!
