I Prayed have prayed
Father God, we lift up the sacrifice and torture of Your Son to You. We know that Jesus bled from His skull when that crown of thorns was shoved onto His head. He purchased the mind of Christ for us, so we humbly plead the blood of Jesus over America and ask that we as a nation would come to ourselves and return to our right mind: the mind of Christ.
Reading Time: 5 minutes

Do you ever wonder how on earth people consider themselves to be of sound mind and body yet still believe the propaganda being pushed on America? I know I do. I look at how people believe that up is down, left is right, right is left, down is up, right is wrong, and wrong is right — and I wonder what ever happened to sanity and common sense. The world has changed much in just a few short years, and not for the better.

Post a prayer for your state!


But friend, the blood of Jesus still speaks a better word than all the liberal propaganda, lies, and deceptions that are being worked on our nation.

We can plead that blood over our nation in prayer in many ways. And if we will, we will see change.

In particular, I am reminded today to plead the blood from Jesus’ crown of thorns over our nation.

Everything Jesus suffered during His passion purchased something for us. We know that it is by His stripes that we are healed, but the saving work of the cross accomplished not only healing. Jesus’ blood purchased everything Father God has for us — and access to everything He is.

I believe Jesus bled from His skull — from His very brain — in order to purchase our right to have His own mind. As the apostle Paul wrote under the direction of Holy Spirit: For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16 NKJV).

Did you catch that? “We have the mind of Christ.” How did we get that mind? Jesus had to bleed in order to obtain it for us. And just as His body was ripped to shreds by a Roman whip in order to put our physical bodies back together in healing, I believe Jesus bled from His brain in order for us to have the mind of Christ.


Just think how different our nation would look if everyone in it suddenly started operating with the mind of Christ!

I know that the mind of Christ is the inheritance of the believer, but think of it anyway! If everyone came to Jesus and started operating from His mind, holy and divine wisdom would reign supreme again. Lies would be cast down. The idols of the demon god Dagon would fall at the feet of Christ and His glory-carriers (since YOU are the Ark carrying His covenant now!), and sanity would return to our nation.

Can you believe God for that? Do you think He was serious when He said in Joel 2 that He would pour out His Spirit on all flesh — not just on those who already believe?

I believe it. I believe God is going to visit us with such an outpouring of His Spirit that the earth will be filled with the knowledge of His glory as the waters cover the sea.

If you can agree with that in prayer, let’s lift the blood of Jesus by the crown of thorns up to the Father:

Dear Heavenly Father, we come to You in Jesus’ name. We thank You for sending Your precious Son Jesus to die for us. Thank You for redeeming us from the slave market of sin, where we would have been enslaved forever except for Your mercy. We thank You that the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom when Jesus died, for by His blood, everything You are and everything You have became available to us. We praise You for Your goodness and grace.

Father God, we plead the blood of Jesus by His crown of thorns over our nation today.

Jesus bled from His head — right from His brain — because, without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sins. And Your word says in Isaiah 53 that it pleased You to crush Him, Father; so, You allowed Jesus to bleed from His brain. And through that blood of Your Son, You purchased the mind of Christ for us.

So, Father God, we ask today that You would cover our entire nation with the blood of Your Son Jesus — particularly that blood that He shed from His skull, scalp, and brain. And we ask today that, because of the precious blood of Christ — the Lamb without blemish and without spot — You would bestow upon our whole nation the mind of Christ again.

We pray today:

  • that our nation and everyone in it would return to sanity;
  • that we as a nation, together with all our citizens, would suddenly “come to” ourselves (as the prodigal son came to himself) and wake up;
  • that good, godly, common sense would return to every person — even to those who are trapped in darkness;
  • and that it would be as if You switched the light on so that people would suddenly flee from the stupidity of sin and darkness, turning instead to the light of Your wisdom.

Father, give every person in our nation the beautiful mind of Christ.

We present before You, as legal evidence, the fact that Jesus bled from His brain and head so that our minds could be saved, and we ask that You would apply this salvation to our nation as well.

Thank You, Father. Give us wisdom once again. Restore us to seeking You, and fill us with the Spirit of the fear of the Lord, which is the beginning of wisdom. All these things were paid for with the precious blood of Jesus, so we thank You for honoring that blood and turning things around in our nation.

As it is written in Your Word, so let it be done. Thank You, Abba Father. With faith and trust in You, our Hope, we pray; and it’s in Jesus’ name that we say amen.

Friend, everything Jesus suffered has purchased something for you and for me. And always remember that His sacrifice applies even to our nation. All the ends of the earth are Jesus’ inheritance, for the kingdoms of this world WILL become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ.

Amen! Praise be to our God and King who causes us to walk in triumph. Lord have mercy on America. Cleanses us, purge our minds from the muddled mess that enemy sows & we assist the enemy in nurturing the lusts of the flesh.
Thank you that nothing is impossible with you. Christ be Exalted once again in this nation.

I am in full agreement with this prayer over our nation. Matthew 18:19 Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.

“Sound mind” needs to begin in the church with “sound doctrine.” How many of us read the Bible?

March 29, 2023

Just think how different our nation would be if only the body of Christ would wake up, repent and turn from OUR wicked ways! The late Derek Prince preached a stunning, stinging sermon directed at believers about 2 Chron 7:14 and how it is the prayers of the righteous that are heard and move Almighty GOD to turn a nation back to righteousness. We are now where we are because believers grew complacent and churches quit preaching and teaching the full council of Christ.

I love this article about “the man of sorrows” who is “acquainted with our griefs.” I have reflected on the suffering Jesus went through in His head, how he suffered to heal mentally and emotionally. I much appreciate seeing this reflection at Easter season.

March 29, 2023

This was so moving, heart wrenching actually. It never dawned on me to plead specifically the blood He shed from His head. Dear God, such a sacrifice He made for us! I’m hosting a small spirit, soul, body wellness retreat this weekend and will share this during communion. Thank you!

Thank you for your prayers and for caring about our country and it’s return to sanity. Dear God it’s hard to watch and realize it’s actually happening this way. I never dreamed our country would come to this insanity or to call truth a lie and a lie the truth. Wow! We need prayers now more than ever. I pray we see God do mighty things amidst this horrific time in history. I’m watching the sky! Thank you Lord for what you did for us all that we might live in Paradise with you someday. What a price you paid and what wicked men that could do such a thing to another human being. For sure they knew not what they were doing but it was all part of His magnificent plan to save us unworthy people from endless torment and loss of being with Him for an eternity.

I pray along with you and every Christian Brother and Sister, in Jesus’ Holy Name that all people wake up from their slumber, and live the life Abba Has intended for us, to protect us as we step up and forward, in our Holy Armor totally covered by the Blood of Jesus, Amen

This article helped me so much. My husband’s mind has been under spiritual attack for 3 years since our mentally ill neighbor assaulted him. The neighbor hates us and is trying to steal part of our land and has had my husband summoned to court for type 2 criminal trespass. We have had to hire 2 lawyers and have a survey done. We have a court date this April 4th. My husband’s mind has become consumed with hate and violent thoughts. He is not behaving like a Christian now and I have been so depressed, trying to live next door to a mean, horrible neighbor and live inside my home with an angry husband who has rages every single day. No amount of prayer has made the slightest difference. The thorns on our precious Jesus’ head were there so we could have healing for our minds. I’m going to pray for the power of the crown of thorns and the Holy blood from those wounds to heal my mind, my husband’s mind and our neighbor’s mind. I’m also going to pray this over the minds of the American people every day. I believe God is calling me to this prayer for America because I have so radically experienced what demonic influence can do to the mind and at what a rapid rate such evil influence can change people, even God’s people, into monsters.

“Jesus bled from His head — right from His brain — from the crown of thorns shoved on his head?” I have not read this in scripture, so I cannot pray about this crown of thorns shoved on JESUS’ head till HIS Brain bled! FATHER GOD YOUR WORD says that by JESUS stripes we are healed! Please deliver us from evil and since we have humbled ourselves and prayed, please forgive our sins and heal our land in JESUS MIGHTY NAME! Amen!
