I Prayed have prayed
Lord we come before Your throne asking for forgiveness and mercy for this nation. We cry out to You to protect us and direct the leaders of our country to make wise decisions for our future.

A friend recently told me about a dream he had where he was in a store and the shelves were empty. A man told him that the reason the shelves were empty was because there was talk about World War III.  He got on his knees with the President and another person to cry out to the Lord for forgiveness and mercy for America and to keep us from war.

We all know the story in Genesis 18 where Abraham pleaded for mercy for Sodom. Abraham boldly asked the Lord to spare Sodom, first if fifty righteous men were found and finally for 10 righteous men (Gen. 18:16-33). We know that God did destroy Sodom, but He remembered Abraham and spared Lot.

I believe this is a time to pause and prepare and to get to know the heart of God, spending time listening to what He is saying and worshiping Him. But I also feel it is a time to be on our faces before Him asking him for mercy for this nation and to forgive our sins. Right now the word for this season seems to be “unprecedented.” We don’t know what things will look like in the future, but God instructs us to do this: “… approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” (Heb. 4:16)

Is God giving you dreams? How are you praying in this unprecedented time? Share in the comments below!

This year, God nudge my heart to pray more in 2020. And I’m so grateful that a friend introduce me to IFA.

Lord God, thank You for all the prayer warriors who read these pages. You have brought revival before. Please do it again.

Father, You are an awesome God and You reigns from heaven above with wisdom, power and love.

Father, Your word said in
Luke 11:9 And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Mark 11:24-25 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

We kneel before you to ask you for your forgiveness for all the sins that we have committed personally and corporately as a country.

Lord, help us to know You more. Help us to know Your voice. We seek Your face and ask You for wisdom in this hour. You said you would guide us and direct our paths. We thank You that as we draw near to You, You will draw near to us. May we be a people that know His ways and know Him intimately rather than people who only recognize His acts. It is time to dig down in our relationship with You.

Lord, may Your favor be upon us and a thousand generations and our family and our children and their children, and their children. May Your presence go before us and behind us, and beside us, all around us, and within us. You are with us, You are with us.

Father, help us to speak in alignment with your Holy Word during these trying times. Don’t let us grumble, complain or speak with impatience, anger or fear. Write Your words on our hearts today as we speak them over our homes, cities, states, and this nation. Write them on the hearts of all the people. Turn back to us as we turn back to You in love, faith and with humility. May Your Word go forth and perform its good deeds throughout all the earth.

Lord, we thank you that you teach us how to pray, Prayer knows no boundary, no quarantine, no confinement. Help us to stay focused on You.

We ask that You bless President Trump. Thank You for his courage. His boldness. His leadership in the world. Make his enemies, both here and abroad, to be at peace with him.
We ask that You bless the President’s family, his cabinet, and his staff. Protect them, while giving them unity, loyalty, and a shared vision.

Lastly, we ask that You bless America. Our beloved nation. Protect us. Defend us. Unite us. Please continue to use us as a force for good in the world.

God, Your word says that we should have confidence in approaching You. That if we ask anything according to Your will, You hears us. Thank you for listening, thank you for answering and thank you for loving us.

You are a great prayer-hearing, prayer-answering, covenant-keeping, miracle-working God. Hear our prayer! Listen to Your children as we pray for the peace of the city on which You have placed Your name. Answer us!
For the glory of Your great name, Yeshua!

Amen.

The world as we know it today will change for the better since one of the effects of this ” lockdown” has given us a true glimpse of what people in communist countries live with every day. Our nation has now become the focus of the let to advance their agenda. I have Good News that says the Moral Majority no matter how maligned is rising again to assure future generations there is something within this nation worth fighting for. With three generations o believers now joined together to pronounce God’s Alive and Well, we will proclaim that from the wellsprings of water flowing forth with HOLY SPIRIT Power across this whole earth.
The bad news..for those still on the fence..
PRAISE WORKS TO DEFEAT THAT ENEMY WHO THINKS HE’S WON..

Over the last 5 yrs I have had a few dreams. One I remember early right after the election of Trump, involved Barack Obama. It was during the transition period before the inauguration. Obama was in a room with Democratic supporters. He was discussing a plan to take down Trump. Another dream was on Halloween night a few years ago. In the dream a demonic head appeared to me with a ghoulish look and fiery eyes. I had the sense it was sent to me for harm, maybe by a curse. It opened its mouth like it was going to speak. I rebuked it in the name of Jesus. Before it had a chance to speak, its mouth and eyes slowly closed and it faded away.

I started interceding for our country a year before the 2016 election. A burden was placed on my heart that drives me to seek God to find His will for how to pray. God has shown me during this journey that we as a country have taken a dark path away from the guiding light of God. We have been slipping away slowly for many decades. The forces of darkness have been given much freedom and power due to the sin so prevalent in our society. Their plan to destroy our country is to infiltrate our government with ungodly people that are are easily influenced by demonic forces. It is very much an inside job, the enemy from within. This plan also requires support from the ungodly in other areas of our society which includes the 7 mountains (government, entertainment, family, business, education, the church, and the media) as described in many Christian teachings. I believe the enemy almost had it sewed up, then a miracle happened. Hillary lost and Trump won the election.

This event was not expected and created much panic in the enemies camp. The enemy realized it no longer was in complete control of the government. It rallied its resources and developed a plan of resistance to try and negate what God had done. They came up with a plan using the devils tactics of lies and deception to try and retrieve the power they lost. They tried by conjuring up fake stores about russia collusion, abuse of power with Ukraine and really every issue pertaining to our President. It has a been a constant attack even before he took his oath of office. To do this they needed a mouth piece to put forth propaganda to deceive and manipulate the masses. The majority of the main stream media is controlled by only 6 men. I believe these men have a lot to lose if the truth about them is exposed. A media lined up with demonic forces becomes very effective in deceiving people. We can see the power of this technique used in Nazi Germany. Hitler used it to deceive the entire country to justify the murder of millions of innocent people.

Another example of the enemies attack is the response to the Corona Virus. Shouldn’t a response to a problem be proportional to the amplitude of the problem? In 2017, 61,000 people died of the flu. I can’t say I remember much response back then. Today we have had about 52,000 deaths (number debatable since compensation involved of deaths is by the virus). The response has been exponentially larger than a few years ago with similar #s of deaths. The fear, chaos, and division shows me the enemy has targeted this virus outbreak (maybe even involved in creating it) and is using it as a weapon to further its agenda. It wants Trump out and will destroy the economy if need be. There is no limit to its treachery.

The level of deception has grown to a breaking point. Half the country has been duped by the media and believe their lies. When lies are spoken and truth is twisted over a long time, the believers become ensnared in the ideology. It becomes a cult. Cults are dangerous because the minds of its participants are controlled. I believe the forces involve here are demonic and can only be broken by the power of the Holy Spirit. This area of demonic stronghold is where my focus has been over the last 4 years. All the chaos caused by the enemy is just a distraction to try and keep everyone engaged in fighting each other. The enemy knows this and uses daily every situation it can gets its hands on to sow division in our country. It knows chaos leads to anarchy where it can hang out under cover.
That is all about to change. The truth is about to be revealed. The accusations from the media has all been a deception so people will “look over here” to distract from the truth that is right it front of everyone. The truth will set you free is what the Bible tells us. I believe all the prayers concerning all the false information, the injustice toward innocent men and women, the division in our society, the ungodly behavior in our country, etc. have been collected and stored in the heavens. When the time is right these prayers will be used to overpower the demonic forces and allow the truth to be revealed. When this happens, the enemy will rise to a another level of insanity, but God’s justice will prevail. Finally we will see the power of the enemy release it’s grip over the minds of the people it has controlled for so long. I don’t know how long this take, but I walk in faith to believe we serve a God of love and justice. When the people who broke the law to further their own gain are brought to justice for all to see with irrefutable evidence, we will see the power of the enemy take a big hit.
It is important that we keep praying using the discernment the Holy Spirit gives us.

Father, I stand in the gap and ask for forgiveness of my sins and the sins of all in our great country. We have all gone astray and have done wicked things in your sight. Innocent babies lives have been sacrificed with no remorse. Innocent people have been accused and set up in corrupt judicial system. I confess these sins and ask for Your mercy on us. You are a God that forgives and restores through the precious blood of Your Son.

Father, we praise You and adore You for calling us to a part of Your plan for the deliverance of evil that has had our country so shackled for so long. I pray for all those involved in our congress, our justice department and our intelligence agencies that are working to bring justice to our land. I pray You give them wisdom in executing the roll out of all the information that will expose the deeds of the wicked. Protect them from physical harm and give them a guiding light to keep them on the path of truth and righteousness. I pray for legions of angels to sent to battle with the forces and principalities of darkness over our country. I bind these forces of deception and perversion that has control over so many. Prepare the mind of these lost souls for an awakening. Teach us Lord how to minister to the lost, once they realize they have been believed lies for so long. Give us a heart that listens and consoles rather than boasts and belittles. Give us the understanding who the enemy really is and we are to approach the lost with love and understanding. Oh God, I ask for the power of Your Spirit to be released in all of us. Give us all the tools You have for us in the manifestation of Your Spiritual gifts. I thank You that You make them available for all who seek them. And lastly, May Your peace dwell in our hearts now and during this time of revealing the Truth. Open our hearts to anything and everything You want to accomplish during this time of change. Amen.
