Pray have prayed
Father God, we ask You to destroy the stronghold of power that the enemy has on America.

This story is true. It is a story of a personal battle and victory. But it is also a story that mirrors our national battle. My purpose is to identify the steps in my battle and victory, and then relate it to the current spiritual war we are in for the soul of our nation.

I was married, but in a difficult relationship.  We had two small boys.  One night I had a dream.  I was in a courtroom.  The judge was sitting in front at his bench.  I was on one side of the room and my wife on the other side facing the bench. The judge banged his gavel and said “I give full custody of the children to the husband.”  I woke up, bewildered.  I was still married.  I simply tucked this dream away in my memory.

It was a Friday, maybe a month after I had the courtroom dream.  I was at work and could not keep my mind on my daily activities. I sensed something wrong and left at about 3 pm to my troubled home.  I pulled into the driveway and walked up to the front door.  I opened the door, and was hit with this odd smell of sulfur. As I looked around, I saw certain pieces of furniture missing.  I ran into the boys’ room and found it completely empty, bunk beds and dresser gone. My first thought was, ”The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” (Jn 10:10a) My wife had left with no warning, with our boys, and emptied the bank accounts. So began my journey into a living hell for next 2 years.

I want to back up here and discuss what led up to this bizarre behavior.  We had been part of a church for many years.  They hired a man who ran a counseling ministry.  He didn’t last long; when he left he started his own church.  It was a small congregation, consisting of maybe six couples and a couple dozen or so single people.  My wife wanted to switch to this group and I agreed reluctantly. We had been struggling with issues in our marriage and I thought it was a good idea to go along with the switch to keep the peace.  For about six months I embraced the teaching, as frankly I was desperate for the marriage to improve. There were some good points taught, like respecting boundaries and understanding codependency.  But the teaching was rather self-centered rather than Christ-centered. It seemed to appeal to the women—giving them “permission” to focus on themselves, which included much time away from the home. The lack of time spent on the family with small children and a husband working full time put a big strain on our relationship.  This struggle was also occurring in the other marriages in the group.

The women were particularly affected and very loyal to the leader.  My relationship with my wife became very strained; it was impossible to discuss any issues with her.  She learned lingo and used words inappropriately.  If I  disagreed with her, I was “abusive.”  If I voiced my concern over the time spent away from home, I was “shaming” her.  Basically, in her mind she had free rein to do anything she wanted, and if I stood in the way, I was at fault.  There was no emphasis on personal responsibility.  Every time an issue was brought up, the conversation was turned back on me and I was the problem. It became impossible to even carry on a decent conversation.

During my quiet times in prayer I began to understand that I was in a spiritual battle.  I was not fighting against people, but unseen forces that had deceived them (Eph 6 :12).  I began to intercede and realized I had been compromised when I embraced the teachings. It was like the demonic had somehow oppressed me. I called out to God and asked him to deliver me from these spirits that were tormenting me and forgive me for getting involved. He did.

I then saw three spiritual forces working in unison— spirits of deception, perversion, and witchcraft. I began to understand how each one was working in this cult. Deception uses trickery and lies to fool the person.  You start in truth and each day you take one step away from it. Over time you become very far away from the truth, but you are not aware you have even strayed. Perversion took the biblical view of marriage and made it something very different and sinister.  No longer were the two to become one.  No, this spirit defined a new type of relationship disjoining the couple and somehow justifying it.  Witchcraft was used by the leader of this cult to control the weak to get them to honor him and his teachings.

The Monday after my house was cleaned out, I was served divorce papers and a restraining order to stay away from my wife.  This was a ploy to try and make it look like I was the bad guy, as there was absolutely no history of any kind of abuse whatsoever.  I was forced to enter into our justice system.

I was frantic to see my two boys, ages 4 and 7. It takes time and money to maneuver through the courts.  I finally was able to see them every other weekend.  When I saw them, I was overjoyed to hold them and spend time with them.  But when I began talking to them, I became very upset and even overwhelmed. The cult had taken them in and put all kinds of false notions in their heads. Talking to them was like talking to my wife.  I could see the spiritual hold these demons had on them.  To see your own children affected this way something I hope I never have to experience again.  It was horrifying.  I prayed to God and asked him to deliver them out of this hopeless situation.  Basically, their little minds were being brainwashed to see me, the father, as an abusive man.  I asked Him, what do I do?  He showed me to love them when I see them and gently speak truth to every lie that comes out of their mouths.

I started praying every day at lunchtime.  I would leave work and go down to the bank of a river close by and I would pray in the Spirit and pull down these strongholds over my two boys. I would also pray that this evil cult would be destroyed.  I tried over and over to talk to my wife to get her to stop poisoning the minds of my kids, but to no avail.  She would not talk to me about anything.  I did not want to affect the relationship the kids had with their mother, but at the same time I knew something had to change in our relationship.  It could not go on this way, as it was causing so much emotional pain for my kids, especially the oldest.  I formulated a plan to try and get custody until she could see how damaging her behavior was to our kids.  I knew that this would not occur unless the control of these spirits was somehow removed, so I kept praying.

I confronted the cult leader.  I told him God showed me if he didn’t stop what he was doing every single married couple in his group would be divorced.  I told him he was a false teacher and was being led by evil spirits.  He excommunicated me from his church!  I told him to keep his hands off my children and stay away from them and left.

I became exhausted dealing with the divorce and custody legal proceedings. I made it clear to my lawyers that I did not want my children to associate with this group of people. Family Court Service conducted a halfhearted, inconclusive investigation of the group.  But with my insistence, the children were forbidden to be around anyone in the cult. Unfortunately there was not likely to be enforcement of this action.

This battle had now intensified to where I was the enemy pitted against my wife, the cult leader, and others in the group. They called good, evil and evil, good.  I was praying my heart out, seeking God, careful of every word I spoke, and yet I was called Satan.  What a bizarre situation I found myself in.

In talking to my oldest son, it became clear to me that the cult was involved in the radical decision to clean out the house and take everything.  When I realized I had been played by them, it was all I could do to not seek revenge. (Romans 12:19)

Many months passed but I kept praying.  I was also experiencing major financial hardship which made the situation more difficult. To add to that, I lost my job. I was financially sinking and now had no income. The Lord helped me by showing me to only focus on the next task ahead and not on tomorrow, for he would take care of me.  Miracles literally got me through.

Finally, more than one year after the ordeal began, a court date was set to discuss custody issues.  As I was walking to the court house with my lawyer, he said to me, ”Mike, I think you need to understand that the courts don’t usually give custody to the husband.”  I said, ”I am not going to think about that.  I know what’s best for my children and God knows my heart.”

We walked into the courtroom and took our seats. The judge listened to testimony from Family Court Services.  The judge listened to my wife’s lawyer, then my lawyer.

He banged the gavel to get everyone’s attention, then said “I give full custody of the children to the husband,” the exact words I had heard in my dream well over a year ago.

My lawyer was stunned, my wife broke down crying, I said, “Thank you, Jesus.”  But the most significant thing about this event was that the spiritual control over my family had been broken.  I went over to my wife and said, “Look, I don’t want to take the kids from you forever. You must understand that I love them too and my role in their life is very important. From this day forward you must honor my role in their lives and stop making my life with them so difficult.”   She saw them once a week under supervised visitation.  It was a very humbling time for her.  After about 2 months we went back to court and she agreed to work with me and not do anything to harm my relationship with my kids.  We then agreed to joint custody.

What happened that day was the culmination of a year-long battle where prayers were sent up to the heavenlies, and that in His time, these prayers were released in force to bind the strongman and allow truth to rein.  God dealt a devastating blow to the demonic forces to turn the tables.  No longer did the enemy have the upper hand.  I could sense those spirits were not a part of my life or the life of my children any longer.  Most importantly, my wife finally changed her view of me and accepted me as an important person in the life of our kids.  Without the control of those spirits, I could now try and rebuild what the enemy had stolen.  God had answered my prayers.

Another consequence of that day was the tide began to turn on the cult. The seeds of division had been sown and consequences reaped.  Every marriage ended in divorce. The cult leader was caught in an inappropriate relationship and his wife divorced him. He eventually left town. It is amazing the destruction and emotional trauma one man cause when used by the enemy.

There is so much more to this story I could tell, but suffice it to say, that God did restore all that I lost, my boys are now 33 and 36, married, and we have a great relationship.

My story demonstrates how spiritual warfare can defeat an enemy, changing events to bring glory to God and bring His Will to our world.  God restores.

The Battle Raging in America

I want to now turn to our current situation in our country, right before what might be the most critical election in our history.

We are locked in a spiritual battle. We all sense that something is very wrong.  Good is called evil and evil is called good. Truth is hidden and bad people in high positions are using their power to control those they do not like. The media has gone off the rails and is now an arm of the opposition party, using every method they can muster to deceive the American people and further their agenda. They have succeeded in deceiving millions of people. When you try to talk to those that are deceived, you find it impossible for them to listen to reason. It’s like their minds have been taken over by some sinister force. It’s like they are in a cult. We see hatred and chaos manifested. We have a President seen by some as a warrior leading the fight into this fray and others see him as the enemy. Sound familiar?

For decades the enemy has gotten a foothold into our society. He has infiltrated our government, our education system, our business community, our media and entertainment, our religion, and our family.  I believe a demonic structure has been set up to fundamentally change our country. Tyranny has been placed over our nation and is directing spirits of deception, chaos, violence, perversion, and many other demonic forces to do his will. It feels like all hell is being thrown at our nation with the purpose of radical transformation opposite to that of freedom and liberty. The President is at the center of this attack. A veil of evil has enshrouded our country.  Only through prayer and action can this veil be broken.

In 2016, I sensed God calling me to pray for our country.  As I began to pray, I realized, just as before, that a spiritual battle was brewing and I was to be a part of it.  This battle would have epic proportions and complexity. I knew that my experience would be useful. God was telling me to gird up because I was going into battle.

Four years have gone by and now we are at a very critical cross road.  We all sense that this election will determine the ultimate fate of our country.

We at IFA have been faithful in our efforts to engage this enemy appropriately. The events over the last four years have been covered extensively.  The call for prayer has been constant each time enemy activity has been identified.  Prayer warriors and faithful intercessors have responded to these calls.   Intercession has been a constant activity among many people. We have also heard reports of outside groups praying, even people from other countries.  There has not been such a mobilization of prayer in our lifetime.

If one man praying for one year can destroy the demonic influence over his children and his life, what can millions of people praying for 4 years and even more do in our current situation in our nation?  I have seen what God can do in impossible situations. I believe God is going to honor the prayers of his people to give us a chance to turn this nation around.

I want to now explain how I see these prayers are going to be used to defeat the enemy. To make any kind of lasting change in our country, the demonic network must be defeated.  Their power must be neutralized and their control removed from our institutions and the people of our nation.  Every prayer that has been given for the restoration of our country is now in the possession of our Heavenly Father.  He has them all.  When the right time arrives, and the number and quality of prayers are adequate to overcome the forces of darkness, the Creator of universe, the ultimate judge, will strike his gavel and send forth a proclamation.  The spiritual power contained in the prayers will be a powerful force of destruction directed at the enemy.  It will neutralize and remove the influence of them over our nation.  It will not change the physical, but it will change the spiritual structure. This will allow a more unbiased playing field. It will give us a chance to clean up the mess of corruption and root out the evil that has taken hold of our government.  This will spill over to the other institutions in our society. No longer will we be the ones on defense.  No, the enemy will be on defense and be overpowered, because his power over our nation will be destroyed. Will he kick and scream? Absolutely, but his control will be over. Slowly, we can rebuild and restore our nation.

It’s been a long battle but keep praying and believe!  Our prayers our precious to Him. You are precious to Him.

What a story! I am greatly encouraged by the parallels!!! Thank you for sharing this!

I really enjoyed the article: “Is the Gavel about to Strike?” What a powerful testimony! I do have a question for Michael. This is by no means a condemnation, but a genuine concern that I see in not only the world, but in the Body of Christ. Michael, in the article you mentioned “that God did restore all that I lost, my boys are now 33 and 36, married, and we have a great relationship.” What about your marriage? Did God restore your marriage to your wife? More often than not, I see this is not the case. So many are excited about the restorations that do happen, but miss one of the greatest restorations that God desires to do — The restoration of the “One flesh”. No matter how we try, we are still one flesh with our spouses. Divorce and remarriage never dissolves that principle. It was created by God well before any sin or Law altered His initial plan. Again, this is not coming from a heart of condemnation. Just one that is trying to better understand what is happening on a global scale in the Body of Christ. If you feel comfortable answering, I would love to discuss. If not, I understand. Take care my brother. I am excited about what is doing in your life and your family.

    Great question William. I dont want to discuss it further on here. If you want to send a letter to IFA with my name on it and leave your email address, I would be glad to discuss further with you.

Last evening at the 5:00 hour local time, The Gavel was sounded.
Over and over and over the gavel is sounding even right now.
A petition for application of extraordinary writ called for the sake of His Name Christ Jesus.
The 🦅 under Whose wings all is Ours says intercede for Louisiana Texas and Mississippi, the states that feed into the 5th circuit court.
Hallelujah for the King.

This is a beautiful accounting of faith. . . the temptation to have anger, take revenge didn’t come into play as that would sink to darkness not the light of God. . . thank you for your words and accounting of faith which will keep our country in the Light of God from God’s Light in us!

Beautiful testimony of God’s mercy&grace if we press in as old preachers spoke out! God’s timing is so right…wait for it. The blessings outweigh the trials.

Wow. This story of the man in your church reminds me of a man in the church we started out at and, in fact, all of my family was saved there. We didn’t know the difference in this church with a ‘good’ one because we had nothing to compare with and were hungry for the Bible, which he preached. Eventually, we saw the control we were under and finally the church went under (it was started from a ‘split’ and only lasted 2 or 3 years.) I think often that it was there only for our family’s salvation–for such a time as this.

I totally agree about the concept of our country and pray continually for good and against the evil.
Our salvations were 38 years ago.

WOW. Thanks Michael. That was an amazing personal story and great analogy to what America is going through.
Recently a dear cousin, a Christian, texted me not to pray for her! Imagine that. This poor woman somehow believes the lie about children being ripped away from their parents at the border. I sent her the voter guide with the facts so she could be informed. I wrote that I was praying for all being deceived by the media. Her response was that I not pray for her. The intensity of that unexpected response can only be explained by the hold of a dark spirit as you describe. Of course I continue to pray for her as I will obey God and love my cousin.

2 Chronicles 7:14
King James Version –
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

We have a huge sin problem in America. We have allowed the killing of babies and selling body parts. We have allowed prostitution, pedophilia, gay marriage. So much lying, cheating, stealing, etc. We need repentance and revival or we get judgement. It is simple, read the Bible (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth). God judges nations as a whole! We will all die one day and stand alone before God. What say you then? What have you done with Jesus? This is on my heart. I love all of you and one day hope to spend eternity with everyone of you in heaven.
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

I’ve learned so much through your testimony! All glory and Praise to God!
It encouraged me to continue and not to give one day to Satan.

October 28, 2020

Thank you so much for sharing your story and testimony. God loves our testimonies to be shared as it brings glory to him. My daughter is going thru a custody with her 4 boys after one year of divorce, the spiritual battle is similar and prayers are continually going to the Courtroom of heaven for deliverance and redemption . This can relate to our nation, as our prayers of intercessors beginning with small leading to thousands of prayers bombarding heaven to expose the darkness and bring to light the hidden things of corruption. Years ago when just a few of us were praying in our church we witnessed a visual of an American flag on the steps of the sanctuary fall for no reason. We were praying on a Sat evening as we did for years for our nation, the church and whatever the Lord put in our hearts. There were just 3 of us praying. The parts of the flag were separated, the foundation,the flag, and eagle. Little did we know this nation was being torn apart by an evil plan to destroy. LORD put it back together and restore us. Do it LORD. Praying in faith and as one . AMEN

Luke said it best, Luke 12:2 The time is coming when everything that is covered up will be revealed, and all that is secret will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all.
The media will be powerless to prevent this.

GOD of vengeance, ADONAI, GOD of vengeance, shine forth! Rise up, O judge of the earth! Pay back to the proud what they deserve. How long will the wicked, ADONAI, how long will the wicked gloat? They gush out, they speak arrogance, all the evildoers keep boasting. They crush Your people, ADONAI, and afflict Your heritage. They slay the widow and the outsider, and murder the fatherless. So they say: GOD does not see, the God of Jacob pays no attention. He who planted the ear, does He not hear? He who formed the eye, does He not see? He who chastens nations, will He not rebuke. Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will stand up for me against evildoers? Unless ADONAI had been my help, my soul would soon have dwelt in the abode of silence. If I say my foot slipped, Your mercy, ADONAI, will hold me up. When my troubling thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations comfort my soul. Can a throne of corruption be aligned with YOU, planning distress by decree? They band together against the life of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood. But ADONAI has been my fortress and my GOD the rock of my refuge. He will repay them for their wickedness and will annihilate them in their evil. ADONAI our GOD will annihilate them.

Revelation 12:10And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, the name and by the word of their testimony; (I add “and by the powerful name of Jesus”)
God is using your testimony==> Isaiah 40:31 – But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

I have to agree with you, the demons (Satin) are at work in the USA, and we have to combat them. I pray they will be defeated (in the USA and the world). I will pray every day for this.

Thank you for sharing this deep emotional battle. The enemy hits us where it hurts but God trains our hands for war!
Our marriage is continually hit during spiritual battles. And recently at a new depth. God showed me that humility In both of us brings healing.
Your story and testimony paralleled with what we are facing in this country captures the depth and gravity of the situation. I think it captured us as Intercessors by surprise as God has uncovered the length and width of this evil darkness and how it has had such a grip on us as a nation.
God in His Mercy has brought us together to pray as one mind in Christ and is adding to us each day more in numbers, strength and Power!

October 27, 2020

Thank you so very much for this powerful testimony and article! Indeed it helps strengthening the intercession that made to the God of Heaven over and over again for the past several years that I joined IFA! Read an article from Kim Porter and Karen Hardin about we are the eagles rising up not quitting with the renewal of our strength from God ! With so much going on recent months since pandemic, everything was intensified and at times all that could be so discouraging and wearying! Have to pray on praying on…. because the Lord is about to release His approval and blessings to this nation! Through the replacement of Ginsburg by Barrett, i just knew the restoration and renewal of His are at hand! There is hope for this nation and Jesus is the only hope! There is power through intercession among the body of Christ that offered high up to the heaven! Thy will be done on earth as it’s in the heaven! All of our cries and pleads for His tender mercies will soon be granted! Like what Derek Prince’s one of the sermon, he shared how the unceasing prayers that offered with faith unlocked the will of the Lord from the heaven! 🙌☝️🙌

October 27, 2020

Thank you for sharing your story and testifying as to how God honor the prayers of the righteous especially when His people are diligent in spiritual warfare.

Your testimony also demonstrates how satan uses gullible women who open themselves to be used to divide families, nations and kingdoms and even churches. Look no further than Even, Delilah, Jezebel, Athalilah, Herodias and others in the Bible who succumb to deception, perversion and witchcraft.

Thank God that He raised up godly women like Deborah, Ruth, Mary, Gomer, Ester, Hannah and others that also influenced nations. Thank God for the prayers that undergird Judge Amy C. Barret. Let us continue to pray that women of God will stand strong in the gap, warring in the Spirit, pleading the blood of Jesus, and defeating the strategies of the enemy. In Jesus Name, Amen.

My husband were so moved by this testimony, and sent it on to a friend going through similar circumstances. Then we spent the next hour praying for each of our 5 kids, and 7 grandkids…. using the deception, perversion, and witchcraft themes to identify specific ways in each of their lives where the enemy is deceiving, perverting, and using witchcraft in them. We addressed those areas specifically and directly and told Satan to be gone in the mighty name of Jesus. We told Satan, “NO MORE!!!” and that he will not have a hold on them in these ways – through movies, through nature, through sports, through knowledge, through outward beauty, through unforgiveness, through Buddhism, through medical drugs, through luxurious wealth and reputation, through being a good person, through crappy diet. Going through all the miracles of God (as someone posted earlier) helped us in declaring our HOPE in him alone! Hope in the midst of hopelessness – that is our God!!!Also prayed for our friend that I mentioned earlier, Black lives matter terrorizing businesses in Washington, the nation, our president – and the deception, perversion, and witchcraft that Satan has wrought, gained the victory over – he is pushed back in the mighty name of Jesus Christ our Lord and in his authority!

At an intercessor meeting last week one intercessor told of a dream she had the night before. She was in the Throne Room and there were huge golden bowls there. Angels were taking the bowls and getting ready to tip them over, pouring out the contents. She asked what was in them and the Lord revealed to her that they were the prayers of the people for our country.

Lord, thank You for showing us through this
testimony to pray without ceasing and persevere while knowing You are true to Your Word. You will accomplish what concerns us. Thank You for the fellowship of other believers knowing that our trials are producing endurance. Thank You for turning things around for our good and Your glory! Thank You for giving us the authority over the enemy in Your name. I agree with the prayer to remove deception, witchcraft, perversion from our land. Save many souls and fill us with Your Holy Spirit to be a blessing to one another. We thank You in advance for “the gavel coming down” for Your Holy purposes. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Chuck Pierce, a respected prophet, has written a small book called, The Passover Prophecies,that inform much of what the Lord revealed to him about this time we are in.
Page 20 says: In the front line of this war will manifest through economic (as well as demonic) power struggles.
The United States is at a critical crossroads, and the church must be ready to let go of the old era and open its hand to receive new revelation that is fresh for a new warring season.
As we Tighten Our Belts and adjust our spending, the Spirit of God will make us stronger and Stronger….we will learn to do exploits. See Daniel 11:32.

Kenneth Copeland made this statement this month, “The Spirit realm is governed by Definite and Definable laws that are just as predictable as natural laws.”
We now have Three witnesses that remind us to “stay Steady. Pray the Promises as defined by the Word and know that victory is at hand.

Recall Derek Prince who said, “the most Powerful statement a Believe can make is ‘I have been delivered from the hand of the enemy by the Shed Blood of Jesus Christ.’ You Will see results.”
Blessing, you Will be Blessed.

Father we thank you and praise you for how you work in our lives. Psalm 33:10-11 says, “The Lord foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples. But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.” And in verse 12 it says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”

Lord Jesus, you are our God our protector, the one who thwarts the plans of evil. We put our trust and faith in you alone, Father. May our nation be cleansed by the blood of the lamb and your plans prevail. In Christ Jesus’ name. Amen.

Very encouraging testimony for America and my family Where a spirit of Jezabel is separated us.
I pray from Belgium for President Trump now for more then 4 years!
Praise God because He has the best for America!
We will see many miracles and wonders! Halelugia!

This was such an awesome testimony! I too have been battling in the Spirit for over four years for the nation and it times it has felt like when will this battle turn ? In the past couple weeks I have felt in the Spirit tremendous breakthrough that we have like David in 2 Samuel 5 when he took Jerusalem from the Jebusites and then fought and won against the Philistines as the Lord gave him great victory in those battles!!! We are truly in a Psalms 149:6-11 moment in time: Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;
To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.

Praise to the KING! Who in His great wisdom and Sovereignty, has permitted warriors to be forged in the fires of war, so that they might rise up at this divinely appointed time, and be as the voice of an Oracle; to encourage the army of Intercessors, who are called to such a time as this.

2 Samuel 22:32-37
“As for God, his way is perfect:
The LORD’s word is flawless;
he shields all who take refuge in him…It is God who arms me with strength
and keeps my way secure…
He trains my hands for battle;
my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You make your saving help my shield;
your help has made me great.
You provide a broad path for my feet,
so that my ankles do not give way.”

Lord, we ask that you release through us, the spirit of breakthrough and victory, to take back our nation, and the anointing of remembrance, that we may never ever again, release the reigns of our government into the hands of the enemy, in Jesus’ Name.

Such a great comparison…oh May God’s people head His commandments to pray without ceasing as He teaches us to discern the spirits.

October 27, 2020

Lord God,
We thank You for the gift and privilege of prayer. We praise You for hearing us and the work You’ve done in our hearts! You are a Good, Good Father! Lord, we pray that You would strengthen and unify Your church that we would come together and prayerfully combat the forces of evil. We understand that we don’t fight against flesh and blood but against the principalities of darkness! Lord, enable us, Your Church, Your Children to do what You have called us to do. The forces of evil are strong, BUT GOD…oh, BUT GOD, YOU ARE GREATER, STRONGER AND YOU HAVE ALREADY DECLARED THE VICTORY! Praise be to You, Lord Jesus! As we occupy give us courage and strength to get through this day! Let our focus be on what is eternal as we let go of the temporal! We love You and we trust In You alone! Praise be to the Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit! In Your Name We pray! Amen

When I prayed last week for the elections I saw a huge gavel come down on Washington DC.

I praise you Jesus for this faithful believer, follower, husband and father to You and his children. His testimony is one of Your faithfulness in return. I pray we don’t grow weary in the end but continue fervently in prayer for the victory of winning back our country and the eradication of the enemy that has been lurking within since 1760. Remove and cast the enemy into the eternal fires of hell and if his minions desire to continue
in their wicked ways may they join him there. In your name, Amen.

Father God you are victorious. The sharing of Michael’s story is a weapon and your word is a sharp sword to cut through this demonic deception. We believe strongholds are coming down in our brothers and sisters in Christ. We believe the gates of hell are about to opened and the captives shall be released. We praise you and we trust you with this election. Thank you Jesus!

Michael, ThankYou for sharing your life with us, the battle and the victory. This isn’t on the same scale as what you endured at all, but Watching Amy C Barrett get sworn in last night, I found myself becoming overwhelmed with emotion. It was God saying, “I see and hear my children, I spoke through the Prophets and My Word was performed“ ! For me it was a tangible answer to all the prayer from His Body. . I was watching the very same God who heard Abraham cry out for Lot and those in Sodom, Who miraculously delivered His people from pharaoh, stood in the fire with 3 young Hebrew men, closed the lions’ mouths for Daniel. The same God Who gave up His glory to come to earth and live as a human among us, Who performed all manner of miracles, suffered died and rose from the dead , and sent His Holy Spirit to live with us. I went to bed and slept like a baby! And woke early this morning encouraged to continue in the fight 🙏

    October 27, 2020

    Yes! Mary, I am in agreement with Your prayer and the others! May all glory, honor, majesty and power be to our God now and forevermore! He is Worthy!

Michael, thank you for this encouraging word to keep on keeping on! Victory is had for perseverance. Let us not get weary in doing good. Let us walk in the strength of the Lord.

Lord God, we speak out against this demon of Tyranny strangling our Nation. Open our eyes Lord, May we see and be sensitive to the spiritual realm for such a time. Holy Spirit, empower us all to pray against these forces in your legal court. May the shroud also be lifted from our children Lord. Supreme Judge and Father, we thank you for your mercy. Praise you Father that Your Justice will reign! Amen

Thank you, Michael, for sharing your family crisis and the power of prayer that finally broke the demonic stronghold. This story is a faith builder and reminds us to keep praying and declaring Truth, righteousness and justice have the victory in this nation. Our family went through a very difficult experience last year with our son. I knew it was a demonic plan in the works. He is much better but I believe the battle isn’t over. Your story was such an encouragement to me.
Father God, we praise You that You are guiding and directing our prayers to hit the bull’s eye as we continue to press into You. We continue to pray and declare a turnaround and we see it happening, especially with Amy Coney Barrett being sworn in as Justice of the Supreme Court. We praise You for this victory! May we not grow weak and weary in well doing. Continue to guide us and direct us daily in how to battle for our nation in prayer. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
In Jesus’ name

Thank you for taking the time to write this story. First, I’m sorry you had to be a victim of the cult. I’m seeing how God uses anything we give him, redeems it and helps others. This is the first time I’ve actually taken notes from a personal story to help me in praying against strongholds over our nation. God bless you. I pray the joy you have now far exceeds the hell you went through for those two years. I pray that people will begin to be so particular and careful about what they read, and not stray an inch from the truth of the Scriptures. We must guard our hearts, now more than ever.
