Meeting Demonic Darkness with Kingdom Boldness
You may have noticed, but the Kingdom of Darkness seems bolder than ever in our nation.
Things that were once unthinkable are now plastered on television and taught in our schools. What was unmentionable not long ago is now paraded in the streets.
And if you speak up against it, you risk having the wrath of that kingdom raining down on you.
The kingdom of darkness has been filled with boasting and brashness. But remember what David did when Goliath overstepped in his arrogance?
That’s right. It’s time for the people of God, as weak as we may feel, to shock the world and please our Father by stepping onto the battlefield full of FAITH. On top of that, let’s pray those Kingdom Warriors in Washington, D.C. have that same boldness.
One has recently asked our community to pray for that very thing…
Insider Intercessory Information
I interviewed one Christian Capitol Hill Staff Insider who offered key insights into how to pray in this hour.
My source said that there is a great need for a resurgence of boldness on Capitol Hill to meet the rise of darkness:
“As there’s an increase of reckless spending and an increase of really ‘out there’ legislation being brought from places that aren’t … what we need, we need to see just as outrageous, just as out there policies being pushed by people who are kingdom-based. We need legislators, we need members, we need staffers that write the policy to [have] a boldness. We need a willingness of the staffers who write the legislation to put their own public appearance, even how they are perceived in their office, to push Kingdom policy regardless of how others might think it is outdated, regardless of how others might think it is out there or risky…We need people who are willing to step out and vote and get Kingdom policy through.”
The other prayer request from my source was for the Christians who are already on Capitol Hill, that they would not be discouraged or quenched by the pressures or intense spiritual atmosphere of Capitol Hill, asking that…
“Christians that God has called on the Hill, that they wouldn’t resent it because it is very tiring. It is spiritually exhausting to be there sometimes because there is a pressure in there. I remember one of the things that God told me early on… ‘That may be the Capitol building, but that’s also my house. So you have authority to open the doors into my house. You have authority to usher my Presence into every room. You just have to open the door for me to be in that room.'”
Wow. Jesus, come in the Capitol!
With that in mind, let us pray:
-Holy Spirit, let your Presence fill our nation’s capital.
-Father, we pray for an impartation of your boldness to come to the believers in Washington, D.C.. Let the Christians there meet the plans of the enemy with astonishing faith!
-Jesus, we ask that you would bring revival among the Capitol Hill staff and members. Let your Word and your Spirit spread powerfully among them. Your Kingdom Come in D.C., Jesus!
Verses to press into as you intercede on this issue:
If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalm 11:3)
Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house. (Matthew 12:29)
