Are you praying for revival and transformation in New York? Then you need to pray for Jeanne Nigro.
We are in a season in which God is raising up and calling into service a new group of leaders—many who never considered stepping into the political realm. But then again most of us never expected our nation to be in the battle in which we now find ourselves for the survival of America and the hard-won freedoms we possess—including freedom of religion.
I was introduced to Jeanne recently by a mutual friend who told me, “You will want to meet this woman!” After talking with her, I think you will too. She has asked for and needs our prayers.
Nigro lives in New York City and is running for U.S. Congress against incumbent Democrat Jerry Nadler. Nadler has been in Congress TWENTY-SEVEN years. He is the head of the House Judiciary Committee who has made it his mission to impeach President Trump. You may have seen him recently during the televised questioning of Robert Mueller and discrepancies in the Mueller Report. This is the giant she is taking on.
Send a message to your congressional representative that you are praying for him or her and about the push for impeachment.
Jeanne Nigro never planned on running for office. She has been in ministry now for over fifteen years and anticipated that God would continue to use her as He had in the past via teaching, writing, radio and television. But then God adjusted her view.
Earlier this year, Nigro was selected to participate in a three-month “Christian Statesman Leadership Training” in Washington, D.C.
“I went into it thinking about my “wake-up call” radio program. I primarily wanted to learn more about the Constitution to be better equipped to inspire my radio listeners that engaging in government was biblical and a ministry to which we are all called. I had no desire or interest in running for Congress. However, by the completion of the course, I knew there was no way I could NOT run for Congress,” she explained of the shift that has happened in her life.
A resident of Lower Manhattan, Nigro threw her hat in the ring to represent New York’s 10th congressional district. It is a diverse district representing several minority groups, socio-economic groups, and is predominantly (approximately 80%) Democrat. In the natural it looks impossible, but as David stood facing Goliath, he wasn’t moved by the physical impossibility of the giant he faced. He was moved with passion and holy indignation to stand for righteousness and to fight for God.
Jeanne Nigro now stands facing a Goliath.
Why is she running? “Because I love this country and I believe it’s worth fighting for. It’s ALWAYS been worth fighting for,” she explained. There’s no other country on earth with a Constitution like ours – one that values our God-given rights and freedoms; where ‘We the people rule’ NOT big government.”
“I have such a sense of God working in Manhattan,” she continued. “People write New York City off, but they shouldn’t. It’s no coincidence that God moved me just a block away from Federal Hall, where George Washington was inaugurated and where our first government began. God has an amazing prophetic plan for this city. It’s holy ground to Him. As it has been restored physically since 9/11, it will also be restored spiritually and I believe it will be a city of refuge for righteousness and religious freedom in the end times.”
Here is a spiritual battle plan for New York and how to pray:
- For godly wisdom, strategies, and insight on how to find common ground with moderate democrats in the district, the ability to be a light in the darkness, and for supernatural favor among voters in both parties.Lord, we ask that you would give Jeanne wisdom and knowledge as you did Solomon to go out and come in before the people of district 10. You said if we ask for wisdom, You would give it. We ask for wisdom, insight, understanding and favor upon her to take the land. (2 Chr 1:10)
- For physical and spiritual protection for Nigro and her family in the city throughout her campaign. She recounted the stories of George Washington and testimonies from Indians who would shoot at him, but were unable to hit him. Let us pray supernatural protection of Psalm 91 over them.
- For finances to be able to run an effective campaign. Jeanne shared in our conversation that many people have said they will pray for her, but she needs just as many who will give to her campaign so that she can mount an effective challenge to unseat Nadler. Please pray for provision and that every need would be met; that those who pray will also give! (Phil 4:19)
