PRESIDENT BIDEN’S ADMINISTRATION AND THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD

Lord, help us to trust You. Guide us as we process these new changes. Thank You for Your sovereignty and for who You are.

As our nation inaugurated President Biden and Vice President Harris, all of America is processing this transition in different ways. For the politically active Christian intercessor, there is a strong sense of loss and even mourning.

Has God abandoned us? Why did He not hear our prayers? Is our hope of justice in the land dashed? Will we ever have the hope of free and fair elections again? Is God less faithful than He was on November the 3rd?

For many, President Trump and his administration represented hope for truth to be known, for justice to be served, and for biblical values to be encouraged in our culture.

Now we are experiencing mainstream media and social media shutting out the truth in ways we never imagined. They are joined by the Left’s political operation to wipe out and delegitimize anything President Trump did.  And we have the leaders of both the Executive and Legislative branches of our government who embrace most things antithetical to those of us with a biblical worldview.

Where do we go from here? How do we move forward? I would like to offer three points for you to consider:

  1. Correctly understand the sovereign will of God.
  2. Realize a revival did occur.
  3. Rest in our salvation.

The Sovereignty of God

The sovereignty of God is a mystery. By definition, the sovereignty of God is the belief that God is the supreme authority and all things are under His control. Yet, how it works itself out in day to day life is hard to grasp. Fellow Christians express this though when they say, “Well, God is in control” or “He is still on the throne,” explaining away situations with complex causes by a simple statement. Of course they are correct, but within the sovereignty of God, in His infinite wisdom, He delegates His authority to His created mankind in ways that often make it difficult to understand what He is doing. What are the forms of delegated authority within God’s sovereignty?

  • Look no further than the second chapter of Genesis (2:15), where God releases Adam and Eve into the garden to work it and keep it. We are called to be stewards of the creation with the delegated authority—and responsibility—to care for it the way our Creator desires.
  • It is shortly after this stewardship mandate that the fall of man comes, allowing evil and sin to enter creation, giving the fallen angels authority to exercise their wishes and setting up their temporary kingdom. Ephesians 2:2 reminds us of this kingdom, “in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air….”
  • To combat the authority of this “kingdom of the air,” God put in place the concept of nations and rulers. Romans 13 reminds us, “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established…They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.” There is no time for a full treatment of civil authority here, but suffice to say there are good governments and there are bad governments. One of IFA’s founders said, “The Church gets the government we deserve.” This statement puts the full responsibility of the quality of government on the activities of the Church!
  • Yet another delegated authority is to the Church. Jesus, in some of His final words to His disciples, provides the mission of the Church: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Mt 28:18-20)
  • Yet, there is one more powerful form of delegation within God’s sovereignty and that is the delegated power of prayer. Many verses illustrate this authority, including Matthew 18:18-20, “…whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” The very fact that God created prayer and encourages us to pray is evidence of the authority delegated to us for prayer to shape history.

Certainly, assuring ourselves of the truth of the sovereignty of God is an effective means of guarding our hearts (Prv 4:23) and renewing our minds (Rom 12:2). But, to throw our hands in the air and say, “Oh well, God is in control,” as a way of releasing ourselves from responsibility is a misunderstanding of the delegated authority of God. We are called to steward the creation, to fight against the “kingdom of the air” with spiritual weapons, to disciple governmental leaders, and to support them in prayer.

For nearly fifty years, the Church has allowed our government to protect and promote access to and availability of abortion, resulting in at least 60 million lost lives and positioning us for severe judgment. For sixty years, we have been saying that we can’t talk about politics in the Church, neutering the most powerful force in the world to impact God’s created institution of government. Though a record number of evangelicals voted in this election, it was still less than half of all evangelicals, demonstrating a lack of stewardship.

The Church has allowed the government to run our culture and be seen as our savior and solution for all of life’s problems.

Has God abandoned us, not heard our prayers, and allowed evil to win the day? Or have we been irresponsible with the delegated authority He has given us?

The Revival Has Started

For years, many have hoped and prayed for a revival. Some even hoped and prayed for revival to come from the Trump administration (I can’t express strongly enough that revival historically and biblically comes from the Church and not government). Most people’s expectation was that revival would be in the form of great numbers of conversions along with a great awakening of spiritual interest.

This type of revival did not occur, but I can tell you an INCREDIBLE REVIVAL DID occur. Acting as a backstop to the evil dispensed upon our nation at new levels, there has been an incredible, supernatural interest in intercession for our nation and intercessory activism in the civil arena.

Countless times I have heard in the last few years, “I can’t explain it, but I have a burden to pray for the nation that I just can’t shake.” Hundreds of thousands of new people have engaged in the ministry of IFA.

This revival of intercessory prayer in the lives of people wanting to engage in the civil arena is real and huge.

While this gives me great hope, at the moment I have great concern. Will these people become discouraged by the results of the election? If this is you, please consider God’s calling—and burden—that He has put in your heart. Please, do not abandon it now.

In addition to this, the climate of religious freedoms we have enjoyed is going to change. There will be restrictions and even persecutions coming. Hate speech or the new indictment of “inciting violence” will increase. I believe this will only enhance the revival.

A large portion of the Body of Christ has been extremely concerned about what is going on in our nation but has not done anything about it. This is about to change. God is working in people’s lives. They are looking for ways to get involved, and I believe we will continue to see a wave of people passionate about intercessory activism.

Rest in Your Salvation

As we process the new environment together and mourn dashed hopes, we cannot lose sight of our individual standing with Christ. Don’t forget:

  • He has died for you and you will spend eternity in Paradise. These trials we face are temporary and fleeting in comparison to eternity. It is tiresome in the trenches, but these difficulties will pass. Hope for eternity gives us energy for today.
  • God promises blessing for those who are obedient to Him. His blessings don’t mean our lives will always go perfectly smooth, but as Paul said, we must count it “pure joy” and thereby receive the blessings (Jas 1:2).
  • His Word is alive and brings us comfort everyday. It continues to amaze me after walking with the Lord for four decades that I can read a Scripture I have read so many times before and the words will jump off the page and the Holy Spirit will apply those words to what is happening that very day! Incredible! Spend time in the Word.
  • Fellowship with like-minded intercessors brings hope. I constantly draw encouragement from the IFA community. So many wonderful, spiritually deep people consistently offer revelation and insights that aid my walk with the Lord. Thanks to all of you!

Conclusion

The mystery of the sovereignty of God clearly demonstrates there is not one single source that caused the outcome of our recent election, and to throw our hands in the air declaring, “This must be His will,” is shortsighted at best. The most exciting outcome of this election season is the revival of the intercessory activist. I can’t wait to see what God is going to do through this new group of people, called and empowered by God. And at the end of the day, rest in the wonderful presence of the God of this universe who cares for YOU!

  1. Thank you for these wise words passed along to hurting people-they make much sense-I will keep praying for those in authority as the Bible commands tho I don’t agree with them🙏

    Amen! 1
  2. The present situation is that you now have an administration that is illegal a pseudo president and a great injustice has been done. I cannot believe that this is God’s will, but I do believe that He will bring good out of it. At the moment I feel that everything is on hold. Of course we must keep praying and believing that God’s will WILL be done. I am an Australian but I grieve along with the Christians of USA. I believe that a great awakening is coming and I wait and pray for that

    Amen! 2
  3. I strongly believe in the Sovereignty of God. I believe He planted America as a nation that would enjoy religious freedom to become a sister-nation to Israel. Thus He made her the greatest nation on earth that helped her become a nation through WW2. But Jesus said the gentiles would tread on Jerusalem until the times of the gentiles is fulfilled. Now we see the awakening of Jewish hearts at home and abroad, especially in Israel where Messianic congregations and ministries are rising in a powerful way.

    We should recognize the signs of the times and prepare for tribulation and persecution. My concern for the church is that most of us are unprepared, but my prayer is that God will change that. When Jesus returns to set up His Kingdom, He might not use America to defeat Israel’s enemies. In fact, all the glory will be His. So what makes us think that He isn’t making the way for His own return?

    Amen! 3
  4. The Church has allowed the government to run our culture and be seen as our savior and solution for all of life’s problems. Father, let the church be awakened to the truth of their laxity or toss them aside for those who know Your Ways and obey. Bring us to the scripture for full revelation of Your desires for all mankind and how to turn back the gates of hell like Jesus demonstrates in Matt 16:19. Break down the barriers of deception and give us the faith to believe that all things are possible in You and we align our minds, souls and spirits to Your Ways, Truth and Life.

    Amen! 5
  5. Mr. Kubal, thank you, for such an honest letter. And placing the responsibility where it clearly belongs, on us, the people who have asked Jesus into our hearts. We have a lot of work to do in the days ahead. I plan on continuing to pray on my knees with the authority Jesus has given me. I plan on staying in the humble place before God remembering that my name is written in heaven and giving God the glory as prayer victories continue with IFA.

    A valuable lesson has been learned through this that my silence was part of the problem. I have talked with the Lord, asked for forgiveness, and repented. So, moving forward – in the days ahead this intercessor is being intentional in sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with more people and making disciples until He comes for us. Asking God for divine appoints to talk with people about His love, grace, and gift of eternal life that is found only in Jesus.

    Amen! 5
  6. Very well said. Te idea that everything that happens is the will of God is wrong. That makes God responsible for all the terrible things that happen on Earth. 1 John 5:19 says that the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one. God gave Man dominion over the earth but Satan usurped it. Jesus recovered dominion from Satan and gave it to redeemed Man to exercise in His name. Mat. 28;18,19. He said “I will build My Church and the gates of hell will not stand against it.” Mat 16;, 17,18 The Church is here to reclaim the Earth for the Kingdom of God; instead many are planning to evacuate the earth any minute now. There has been a great volume of prayer throughout the world in the last couple of months. I believe that those prayers are going to be answered. In fact I believe that we are experiencing Revelation 12 right now. The Woman is the people of faith of all ages. Ever since the Fall she has been travailing to bring to birth the promised Seed that will crush the Serpent’s head. The Serpent has grown into this large fiery red dragon. He knows when a deliverer is about to be born. At the birth of Moses and Jesus he had all the babies killed. The massive increase of abortions throughout the world is because he knows that soon a deliverer will arise. The promised Seed is the Seed of Abraham which is Christ and the Church Galatians 3:29. A generation of this Seed is being born into the Earth that is destined to bring Satan down. This generation is pictured here as the Manchild who rises up in Kingdom authority. The angelic army under Michael fight the devil and his angels and the devil is cast down. during the recent prayer offensive which was engaged in by millions of Christians from all over the world, the angel army was released and were seen by some people. They will continue their offensive against evil until the corruption is all revealed. Christians need to keep giving them prayer support. I know this all may seem way out to some people but it’s in the Book and therefore will happen. We will soon have our great world wide awakening. keep praying and believing.

    Amen! 3
  7. “…And we have the leaders of both the Executive and Legislative branches of our government who embrace most things antithetical to those of us with a biblical worldview.”
    Please help me understand the above quote. Specifically of which leaders are you speaking? What have they said or done that reveals their values are antithetical to a biblical worldview? I’m a bit uninformed on this issue and truly welcome your insight.

    Amen! 2
  8. Question: Why did we lose this battle?
    And what do we need to do to avoid losing the next battle?

    Joshua 7:10
    “The Lord said to Joshua, “Stand up! What are you doing down on your face? 11 Israel has sinned; they have violated my covenant, which I commanded them to keep. They have taken some of the devoted things; they have stolen, they have lied, they have put them with their own possessions. 12 That is why the Israelites cannot stand against their enemies; they turn their backs and run because they have been made liable to destruction. I will not be with you anymore unless you destroy whatever among you is devoted to destruction.”

    Amen! 2
  9. Many of God’s people have been aware of the misplaced focus on Trump instead of God. We must guard our hearts and remain faithful to pray for God’s purposes and Truth to be maintained. His ways are not our ways nor are His thoughts like ours. God desires for man to know his salvation in Christ Jesus. We must not drop the ball of prayer like we did after the towers were destroyed in NYC. We must maintain our faith and trust in God. Pride in our own reasoning has got to come down and be left at the Lord’s feet at the cross. Trump is .a man who many have accused of doing or not doing things only God has the power to do. He cannot be held accountable for the CoVid, for instance, nor can he control the minds of a crowd who are being led by insurrectionists to bring chaos and t us keep our eyes on the Lord and trust Him. Stay in the Word and guard your hearts.

    Amen! 4
  10. The quote “its God’s will” has been used all my life as an excuse to do nothing. When has God ever stated His will is for misery, enslavement, suffering, etc. The evils of this world are not God’s will, but under the influence of Lucifer is the will of the natural man. Most of the suffering in this world is not because God will’s it, but because men refuse to obey His commandments. Because we have agency to chose, which He will not violate, His plan of salvation has been designed to compensate for our choices. Religion and Politics are the two subjects people refuse to talk about and they are the very core of what we believe and accept. Religion forms our core belief system, even an atheist has a religion, while politics is the expression of those beliefs.

    Amen! 5
  11. I share because this has been something I have battled for many years.
    I consider the below to be Prayerful, Truthful, Generous, Hopeful, and Relational as I believe it is truth and we are in a war of Justice vrs. Righteousness

    I agree with everything above, but this is NOT over. People need to understand that President Trump, since the beginning was “cleaning the swamp” and “retuning the U.S. back to the people” or back to a Republic. This Republic was taken from us (unbeknownst to us) in 1871, by the Elite when they made the U.S. a corporation, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Pres. Trump knew this and has been working to dismantle this illegal entity. He has dissolved the U.S. Inc. Therefore, Washington D.C. or the District of Columbia (its own state) is null and void and a foreign entity on U.S. soil and has committed treason. The President has handed all of this over to our military before this election and they are dealing with this domestic and foreign invasion. We don’t know when but we are assured, we are still in this battle. That is why we still have the military. Trump still has authority over military. Before he left he appointed to good guys over FEMA (Christopher Miller) and the military (Peter Gaymor) My prayer is that believers will wake up. The Élite (Shadow Gov.) consists of the British Crown (Financial arm), the Vatican (Pope) is the religious arm and when the U.S. became incorporated we, (U.S.)became the 3rd arm and were the military end. All 3 of these regions are their own state President Trump is in the process of dismantling the corrupt system. He is returning the U.S to a Republic and we will come up under a Republic with N.E.S.A.R.A. and G.E.S.A.R.A. The whole system had to fold and be under military control for this reset. You may call this a conspiracy theory, but the sooner people understand what has been happening the easier is will be to transition. The Elite are responsible for global child trafficking, drug laundering, oppressing nation and more. This is not a battle for the election but for the world. The Lord has had enough of this Satanic agenda and We are on the cusp of being set free. The world is still watching. Kind of like a Elijah. Choose this day who you will serve. The world will see that our God is God…He is the waymaker and miracle worker.

    Amen! 9
  12. This man was not elected by the people. We can pray for his soul but also we can ask the Lord to decrease his power to hurt this country. May God have mercy on his soul when they increase power for planned parenthood on abortions.

    Amen! 7
    1. Biden and his supporters need to be reminded that, “We reap what we sow”.
      If he and they agree to the cruel murder of innocent babies in their mother’s womb causing those precious little children an agonizing death, then is it likely that he and his supporters will depart this world in a painless, peaceful way?

      Amen! 2
  13. Some did not vote (or voted third party) because they wanted better choices. John Quincy Adams once said: Always vote for a principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweet reflection that your vote is never lost.” I think that applies as well to some of our Senators who could not vote for setting aside the Biden electors, but could have voted in good conscience to send the votes back to the state legislatures. (in particular, I’ll mention Senator Rand Paul.) He also firmly believes vote fraud occurred:
    https://www.wnd.com/2021/01/fireworks-watch-rand-paul-crush-stephanopoulos-stolen-election/
    I agree on the rest of what was said, especially the church growth through persecution, however I believe it will remain localized depending on what state you reside in. I don’t think Mr. Biden will lead off by completely obliterating states’ rights, but it remains to be seen how much will be done. We should pray for our leaders. However, currently the only prayer I can in good conscience pray for Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris is that they see the depth of their own depravity, (just as I needed to see the depth of mine!) and that God would grant them the grace to repent. (Turn me, and I shall be turned!) This of course, is subject to whether or not they have committed the unpardonable sin of blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, which is something I haven’t heard yet.

    Amen! 5
  14. Thank you, Dave! This is an AMEN article and yes, a REVIVAL is here on this site for one!! This is one of the NEW THINGS the Lord is doing. Thank you for the vision that God has given you and those at IFApray. God bless you and encourage you, strengthen you and provide for each of you. May God forgive His Bride for complacency, distractions, at times disobedience, neglect. He is faithful to raise each of us up to newness and REVIVE US. When things seem good, we can get lazy. I had a long time prayer partner and at times a group of four ladies back in the late 80’s and 90’s praying together when President Clinton was in office and we prayed together and at times fasted –praying for the churches in our community, prayer for one another, needs for friends, for revival, for our govt., missionaries across the globe, many other things. We incorporated our confession, praise to the Lord, intercession, using our great helps and tools the Lord has given us as found in Ephesians 6 and thanksgiving, and we saw great movement by the Holy Spirit in combatting evil. These days are very very concerning and things are turning upside down. We never would have ever imagined such things going on today. May we not be defeated –but our Lord will help us move forward. Our Lord also fights for us in these spiritual battles. We are called to STAND, not shrink back in fear and discouragement. His promises in The Word and one another will bring strength to keep on. Let us all devote much in our prayers to PRAISE TO OUR MIGHTY KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS, for we live and worship for HIM!! Let us remember the highest form of prayer is PRAISE. The devil runs when we entreat our Lord in PRAISE! Thank you and bless you all!

    Amen! 9
  15. Lets pray that God will give Biden a Paul type experience and Nancy also. Just think all the good that could come from these two now controlled by the Devil, becoming
    god’s people to help our nation and showing others what
    they need to do.

    Amen! 8
  16. Hello, my name is Jerry Mecham. I’m an intercessor and a dual national between the US and Australia.

    I’ve lived in Australia since March 1969, originally born and raised in San Francisco. I came to the Lord as a 23 year old in 1973 and walked with the Lord ever since. I was saved during a time of revival in Western Australia, a Sovereign move of God. The Spirit of God was moving so graciously back then. Many were being saved, and it was easy to witness to others of our faith.
    For me, I went into spiritual warfare during the first week of my salvation with alternative presences of evil to that of the Spirit of God.
    There was about 8 months of ease with no spirit interference, then heavy spiritual attacks began nightly for 2 years. Activity of spirits is recognisable ground to me now, after 46 years of walking the the Lord.

    YEARS back, Australian Christians who keen on Bible prophesy noticed that the US doesn’t figure in Bible prophecy. We wondered what would then become of the US as we looked much to US Christianity and the USA as a nation and much leadership has come out of the US.
    But for us, leadership has also come from another nation: Great Britain, which has fallen into malaise as likely you will as well.

    The US must fall that something else, or something else as prophesied in the Scripture shall rise. Consider that 3 times during the 1990s Gulf War, US President George Bush Senior (ex-head of CIA, Skull and Bones man, a friend of the King of Saudi Arabia) gave plain reference to the surfacing of ‘the New World Order’.
    Consider the Pope and how he is ‘the priest’ of the UN, how he established a centre of worship for all nations in Abu Darbi, how he and Pope John Paul have worked to draw Protestant faiths back under Rome’s umbrella, how the Queen bows down to kiss his ring finger, how Trump refused to stoop and the Pope hated Trump for it, and how it was on the Vatican Satellites that the software for vote switching Trump to Biden was set in place.

    We plainly see the moves arising that points to those matters pointed to in the Book of Daniel and in the Book of Revelation.

    Consider how the Club of Rome sat down to divide the world into 10 Federations, and of the US, how to achieve this the US would lose its sovereignty. This join, when examining their divisional map of the globe included Canada down to the bottom of Mexico. However, the Amero coin demonstrates from Canada down to the tip of Panama. Simply, there have been forces afoot for decades working towards this changeover.
    And for the changeover, the US must fall from the power position that it has enjoyed.

    Another point is that the US is the first of modern nations to become a Democratic Republic, and the champion of such which much of the world has looked to. For democratic republics to begin to fall as dominos, it is fitting for inside planners to bring the US down first so that other nations will realise that they cannot resist Deep State.

    With Donald Trump, we’ve had the last and possibly one of the very best of all US Presidents. Deep State made an example of him and may continue to do so, please pray for Donald Trump and his family, and for those who supported him.

    The blunt statement made by Deep State as with a thousand armed octopus, to conservative America and it’s Christians, is that they cannot win and they will trounce their champion openly. The statement by BLM and Antifa is ‘You going to take it’ with no one to defend you.

    Biden has opened the doors to the Mexican and Central American hoards to flood in. Purpose: Collapse the US.
    Truth: the US has already lost it’s sovereignty.
    So when did it? The US Gov declared bankruptcy in 1933 to become USA Inc. Since then it has been operating as a pseudo nation, but really a business enterprise that can be bought and sold. But it’s fall was planned long before this. Take it back to the Fathers of the Nation and the one who create the Democratic Party, Thomas Jefferson. 4 years after the end of the Revolutionary War he took a leave of absence, crossed to France to receive the two seals from the French Illuminati. Those were kept in store till, in 1933, when Woodrow Wilson put them on the back of the US dollar. And what are they interpreted to say: “He (Horus or Lucifer) is pleased to see the development of the New World Order.” What else did the traitor Woodrow Wilson do? He broke ranks to step up to recognise the Soviet Union as a legitimate nation, and the direct relief funding to go to them which was transferred into armaments.

    But I believe the planning goes back much further to the time of Plato. Plato presented the design of the successive order of the world, that once coming to Democracy, will fall apart and go into Tyranny. (Bible prophecy had the previous reference with Nebuchadnezzar’s vision in Daniel 2.) I began reading up on Plato at least 2 years back. Plato was an Insider, initiated into the Mystery religion by Pythagoras, and Pythagoras an initiate to the Egyptian mysteries. Masonic Lodge people are initiated into this mystery religion. Plato planned that during the end of democracy, the citizenry would go base, given what they wanted and peoples run into various democracies from other nations. (The mob.) Then they would collapse. However, meanwhile, Plato taught that the Insiders should continue to tell the public ‘the noble lie’ while things head the wrong way that is ‘Things are okay.’ (-Seem relevant now to you?)

    Down in Australia, the CEC and I fought financial two bills which all of the G20 nations signed to. The Crisis Resolution Bill and the Currency Restriction Bill. The first allows banks to break in and steal private cash from deposit holders. The Second to restrict the flow of money out of those accounts so that the banks can break in and steal as much as possible with no responsibility to repay.
    In February 2020 we watched most all our politicians lie down to these two bills, in spite of all the information we gave to them. We were ‘gob struck’ as we say here in Australia. We wondered then ‘what next’ will Deep State do to promote the collapse of nations?’ -Covid 19 was released. Bill Gates held a conference at the John Hopkins University in Nov 2019, inviting delegates from across the globe. He called the conference ‘Corona Virus 19’. His team then ran a computer model of the spread, then his team asked the ‘delegates’ “Is your nation prepared for such a pandemic?” The alarmed ‘delegates’ then sat down in groups to do ‘think tanks’ on what might be done with a representative from each to stand in front of the convention and report. Then they were ‘sent home’ to prepare their nations. The Chinese delegate said ‘it will take a lot of money to stop this!’ The Answer to covid 19 is found in the May 2006 Nexus Article: ‘Avian flu or Mycoplasma epidemic’ and gives the US Gov patent number on the virus…5,242.820. It isn’t Chinese made by American. Please get a copy, and if you can’t I’ve got one with notes and my research on how to help your body to fight covid 19, which is not a virus but a bacteria.
    So the West must collapse, not simply the US but Western nations, the G20 (of which China is a part of.)
    Europe down with Covid 19, NATO weakened, the US knocked out under Biden, Russia can move in. Trump no longer President, what of SE Asia and Australia’s defense against Chinese aggression? We will likely be overrun.

    I suggest you look strongly to Bible prophesy, aim your prayers for God’s purposes with Israel and the Hebrew children across the Globe. Pray that God will strengthen us who remain, that we leave not our posts but hold fast till we see the return of our beloved Savior in the air. We need be like the 5 wise virgins with wicks trimmed and lamps full of oil, encouraging others, be solid in the Word, praying for His purposes amidst the time of the Hour of Darkness coming on the Globe.

    A man came along to our church seeking to teach us matters on spiritual warfare. Hearing him, I noted several shortfalls. A general finding on spiritual warfare: Best to submit yourself to God and His purposes and place to the side your own agendas. (fits with what the Apostle Peter instructs). Seek to listen to Him and learn possibly of His will in the matter may be. I have found it preferable, on a 3 day fast, to go before him with song and worship, adoring Him and willing to become submitted in all matters. It may be sooner, but at the end of the 3 days will come the time for your unction AS the Spirit may lead, you, as an individual, having been prepared by the Spirit, and the access very pleasing to our Heavenly Father. Amidst spiritual warfare, there is a rest. The Lord is on the Throne. He Who has foreseen all things has His own plans. We need to ask to be ‘let in on what we may pray’ towards His plans.

    Note Daniel and his poise. So keep your poise. God knows, He has foreseen, and He will provide according to His wisdom and fore planning, that which is needed.

    We are nearing the end of the Age.
    Consider at the end of this age, the New World Order with the Antichrist must arise along with the religious harlot system. The Pope, likely wishes to be seen as ‘the Savior of the world’ when the US collapses from leadership and nations fall into disarray, the Pope and Vatican sweeping as many peoples and religions under the Roman umbrella, including the United Nations.

    And what does the Vatican declare of the Pope? – ‘He is Christ’s Vicar on earth’.

    Us.
    Seek to rest ‘in the Spirit’, consider psalm 91.
    We are not of this world. God alone is our salvation.

    Amen! 8
  17. THANK YOU! — “Fellowship with like-minded intercessors brings hope. . . . So many wonderful, spiritually deep people consistently offer revelation and insights that aid my walk with the Lord.”

    Amen! 4
  18. I want to encourage all intercessors that God has shared with me that we must now completely trust in the power of His name ALone.
    Psalms 118.
    We must use His name to defeat all evil that is quickly multiplying. His name is our weapon, we must master our deep knowledge of the power of His name!!!
    That’s what He wants us to do,
    I am studying and drew a visual board. Text me if you need a copy

  19. Hello Sir/Madam,
    I’m a born again Christian.I have lost all faith in our government now that we seem to have a crooked and evil administration. I keep praying for our country.

    Amen! 4
    1. Mr. Fattibene,
      I would encourage you to take heart from Mr. Kubal’s message and, especially, from your prayer time as you share intimacy with your, and our, Father, studying the Bible and speaking with Father GOD about how best to bring heaven to earth. As Mr Kubal alluded to, GOD has given His Son (which includes the body of Christ, which dwells in Him and He in us) all authority over heaven and earth. Without having actually seen Him with physical eyes, you have great faith because you have believed on JESUS of Nazareth, the One who reigns over all. And now, you have been promoted to the next level of faith. How exciting that in this time GOD has seen that the body of Christ is ready for the next phase of increasing in overcoming-FAITH! Holy Spirit is more than able to mature us as long as we are willing and surrendered to His direction and discipline. May your “secret-place” time be especially prosperous as you continue to be transformed more and more into the likeness of JESUS, the only-begotten Anointed SON of GOD!

      Amen! 5
  20. Thank you Dave & IFA members for the encouragement. We are still praying. My view, this is a time to repent and seek God’s will. To encourage others to do the same and pursue God’s Kingdom commands. Jesus said our focus is to make disciples. If we neglect disciplining we will leave others to be made disciples by our enemies of our soul we will see what we are seeing now. While we fought for gospel to be shared in the schools, communist made disciples in middle and high schools. The example of Governor of California (Newsom) being taught by Russel Lowe who promoted Chinese form of communism in California schools. We need to pray for our youth and their schools and find ways to be active. Good News clubs after school program is legal and has been done. Young Life has been done in middle, high school. Campus Crusade, Inter Varsity, and many denominations have made disciples at colleges and universities. I was involve with these groups over a period of my life. We nee to roll up our sleeves and pursue Jesus command to make disciples of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
    I hope this has been encouraging to you.

    Amen! 9
  21. Thank you so much for this article. I, like so many Christians, have felt perplexed and somewhat dismayed over all that has developed after the election. Your article has helped me tremendously. It brought so many things into the right perspective. Thank you so much. God is surely using you, and may He also help us (Christians) to realize our responsibilities to pray, draw closer to God, and encourage our fellowman in the days to come. God bless and continue to use you.

    Amen! 5
  22. I felt called to pray for our nation and the Church since the Bush eras. Frankly, with the inauguration of Biden(puppet- CCP reality) Harris(radical fool), I felt like a total failure as an intercessor. I sought the Lord, focusing on “fixing my eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of my faith”. I could not bring myself to pray anything but for God to work mighty miracles, and lacking that to accept we, God’s people, did not repent and turn from our wicked ways in sufficient numbers (Abraham bargained for only 10 righteous in Sodom), thus we, the Church, are under God’s severe judgment for 60 million innocents killed. Still, I could not bring myself to pray for any in this current administration – except to pray for God’s wrath to be poured out on them. Shame on me. I have been awakened during the night filled with anxiety (I am not normally an anxious person), I awaken almost every morning feeling oppressed by the awful situation in this nation. It has driven me to spend more and more time in God’s word. Prayer is still difficult for me, except to plead for the Lord to “search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!” I find it interesting that come after versus 19-22 which are certainly more my feelings! I confess, I meditate in Psalm 37 every day. My feelings want my eyes to see the end of the wicked NOW. I struggle with God’s timing and I know the final demise of the wicked will come only when Christ returns. In obedience to the word, I have begun to pray for this administration, confessing to God that my heart is not in it and asking for the Holy Spirit to do that work in me. I have felt led to pray earnestly for those brave souls in office to be “strong in the Lord” and to be protected by Almighty God while they wage war against the powers of evil on our behalf. There are even some Democrats that have made statements that indicate they are not totally sold out to this evil lunacy. I pray for them and for more of them to come to their senses. For now, until the Spirit moves me further along the path to whole heartedly praying for those in authority, no matter how evil, this is what I do, in obedience. I recognize that Paul wrote to the Romans during the time of Nero, certainly an utterly depraved and evil man. I see many similarities in the government we now have at many levels. I pray that God may be glorified in all this, though I certainly do not possess the eyes to see that at this time. “walk by faith, not by sight” the Spirit whispers.

    Amen! 13
    1. Thank you so much for writing what I have been thinking and feeling. God is Sovereign. His Word is the Way and the Truth and the Life. I trust God. Psalm Ps118:8.9. I will continue to repent, pray and ask Holy Spirit to keep leading me in Truth as He comforts me. We praise you God Almighty.

      Amen! 1
  23. I identify with your sentiments as far as disappointment. I don’t about your comments on by God’s sovereignty. He’s not sitting in Heaven despondent as we may be. To even hint that somehow something happened that God was incapable of changing is LUDICROUS! We pray, often times, what we think God desires, but because we don’t always under all his purposes, we don’t see clearly. Nothing has happened that God in His sovereignty has not ordained. Sorry, but you trying to softened intercessors’ “disappointment” by somehow making it seem like believing in God’s absolute sovereignty (he does His own will without our counsel) is trite. It isn’t. I’d rather affirm God’s full sovereignty (He allowed Biden to be president … not my choice, but His) than your weak explanation. The church must face what God has ordained and examined itself, not why God ordained this.

    Amen! 2
    1. Hi Danny we were all disappointed with what happened on Wednesday (Joe Biden’s appointment as President), however, I believe this is a temporary thing, we have to remember this is was a stolen election, and why God allowed it to be so I am not sure. However, I do know it has more to do than just an election, there is so much evil and corruption that needs to be exposed and God is doing just that. There is never a time when evil and wrong doing goes unpunished. I would like to share this video with you by Derek Prince titled Ruling by Prayer we have the power to change history. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_7akj9eiMA&t=18s Be blessed.

      Amen! 4
  24. If only we could see what is happening in the heavenlies! Father is waiting as things move until there is a fullness or completion. He has allowed this for a reason. As Christians, we were never promised a life full of roses and happy thoughts. Our battle gear will get tarnished and beat up but eternal lives are at stake. But we ask Father to give strength to the weak and encouragement to the hopeless to stand during the coming persecution/testing. This is our temporary home and know that whatever happens here, we have an eternal home waiting for us.

    Amen! 12
  25. Thank you for directing our prayers for those we don’t like and those who hate God and want Him out of our government, our lives and our thoughts. It is indeed necessary but not pleasant.

    Amen! 5
  26. Refusing to Bow to the Spirit of Haman

    Now Haman was promoted above all the other nobles (Esther 3:1). He was an “Agagite,” identifying him as a descendant of “Agag” the king of the Amalekites, whom Saul did not kill, which resulted in the kingdom of Israel being stripped from him. Because of Saul’s disobedience, future generations suffered the consequences. The Amalekites were the enemies of God.

    Everyone at the king’s gate would bow in reverence to Haman, but not Mordecai. He refused to bow to what God had cursed.
    “When Haman saw that Mordecai would not bow down or show him respect, he was filled with rage. He had learned of Mordecai’s nationality, so he decided it was not enough to lay hands on Mordecai alone. Instead, he looked for a way to destroy all the Jews throughout the entire empire of Xerxes. (Esther 3:5-6,)

    The spirit of Haman is anti-God, and its true intent is to exterminate God’s people, as was demonstrated when Haman manipulated and bribed the king into decreeing the destruction of the Jews. The spirit of Haman is a spirit of pride and destruction and is unleashed when someone stands, refusing to bow to what it has been deemed the standard. This is the spirit that we as Believers are warring against today.

    This spirit makes a lot of noise and tumult when Believers refuse to compromise to its demands! Nevertheless, there is a remnant of God’s people who, like Mordecai, have remained standing, refusing to bow to what God has cursed, fearing God more than they fear man.

    Amen! 18
    1. The Jewish festival of Purim in late February is all about this story of standing up to tyrants and deliverance. Mordecai was an official in King Xerxes’ court who would not bow to Haman, even though Haman had a higher rank. Those who stand for the preborn now are like those who refused to bow to Haman. Thursday evening, February 25, is when Purim will start this year. There is also a fasting period, The Fast of Esther, which is the three days preceding Purim. This year would be a good year to start an Esther Fast since there is a concerted attack on believers, even in government. Thank you for pointing this out, especially now.

      If anyone is interested in joining a fast for these days, please do!
      Heavenly Father, deliver us from evil!

  27. Shocked & Dismayed!

    The prophetic word of the Lord regarding President Trump came to pass and he won the election. The election was stolen and the counterfeit/thief is in the office and the agenda of the anti-christ is in operation signing death warrants on the unborn and promoting communism. The democrat platform is nothing but a platform of death.

    I was shocked that IFA ask us to welcome Biden, Kamala after they committed such heinous crimes in America. And to tell the anti-christ spirits that you want them to know that you value christian values? You are welcoming satan himself? They do not care about you, your health, the death of the unborn innocent children. They paid Antifa/BLM to riot in our streets, burn American businesses, murder the innocent, caused a planned break in of the White House in Washington D.C. for the false media to usher forth their propaganda of communism/socialism/China?

    Why would the IFA bow down to an anti-christ spirit and lay down in the middle of battle.

    Yes! I prayed for them and they have free will!

    Amen! 12
    1. Agree I will not call that Imposer in the White House President much less welcome him. My prayers for him and all that stand with him is the following if he does not repent then let God’s judgement fall on him.
      I will never believe it is God’s will for such an evil group to lead our nation.

      Amen! 18
  28. This urgency of Prayer has become real in my life and that of my husband. We have been more consistent in our joint prayer time than ever before in our 57 years of marriage.

    Amen! 4
  29. Thank you for the encouraging scriptural message! I am redoubling my efforts to pray, so keep sending emails and articles on how best to pray and how to be involved in bringing God’s truth to bear on every arena of society.

    Amen! 4
  30. God is at work behind the scenes. I will be honest and say that I cannot called Mr. Biden president as believe his presidency is counterfeit and illegitimate. I still am determined to pray for him in a mature mannor and especially for his salvation. I am more passionate that ever to pray for the destiny purposes of America. I do believe we will see massive corruption exposure in the near future and this whole transfer of power process is far from over. EVil usually overplays its hand and God is the God of justice. I decree the destiny plans of God for America are and will unfold. I trust God to minister mercy and justice as he sees fit. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. I see machetes in the second heavon cutting demonic puppet strings to corrupt people trying to destroy America with massive exposure in our near future. Jesus is LOrd over America and my passion to pray for the destiny purposes grows with each day. Persecution stimulates passion in the ones being persecutes and I decree positive, bold, God directed action is arising in this nation and across the world as we listen, decree and obey Jesus who is the head. The body of Christ is following Christ for His purposes and HIs purposes alone. We are more that conquerors through Christ Jesus.

    Amen! 14
  31. Praise the Lord, He Never Changes! I’m Standing on the Word of God and praying that the Lord will intercede in our government and the lives of those who make our laws. Continued prayers for a great revival that will spread worldwide.

    Amen! 6
  32. First of all .. our Nation did NOT elect Biden into the Presidency . So while we are called to pray for all.. it is unreal that you call for people to sit down and accept the untruth of the enemy. We have gotten beaten down over generations.. with all the wrong people calling the shots and now with no truth being told. the sheep are being walked to the cliff. Does God want us to sit down and allow Satan to continue to batter us.. or are we called to put on the full armor of God ? The AMerican Church has some of the biggest problems.. with changing the word.. not teaching the sheep the principles. and more.. Intercessors.. where do you get your ability to say this is an administration . when it is not ordained in truth ? The truth is the light and this is very dark.. speak up .. and stop leading the sheep . Yes.. pray for even your enemies.. but this is NOT an administration . it is a product of the fake news. and illusion of the devil.

    Amen! 15
  33. What I would like to see is 24 hour prayer started. Where we would commit to a thirty mins or an hour per day (a set time) and pray for our nation and the exposing of the darkness. the prayer could be done via a Conference call line. Let me know if you would be interested?

    Amen! 2
  34. I am one of those newbies that has been awakened politically in the past few years. I am praying but I have no idea how else God may be calling me to get involved at this point in time. Thank you for your newsletter and for faithfully leading us in the fight.

    Amen! 4
  35. I heard the words,
    ARISE, O SAINTS!

    Arise, o saints! Arise and shine, o saints! For this is the hour My saints
    shall arise and shine, for surely the glory of the LORD is upon ye!

    This is the hour, My beloved ones, that I have ordained for you to arise and
    do the works of the kingdom. Ye are neither too young, nor are ye too old,
    for it is not by might nor by power but by the anointing of My Spirit,
    saith He who is holy and mighty.

    Arise, arise, for so shall I anoint you and cause you to fly upon the winds
    of My Spirit. Do not say in your hearts, “I am unable…”, for your God says,
    “Ye ARE able, by My Spirit, to do exploits for My kingdom”.

    What ye accomplish in this hour will be recorded in My books and so ye
    shall have your worthy rewards in that day of reward saith He who is the
    Rewarder of them who diligently seek their God.

    I AM mighty, saith the Almighty One. Am I not able to do all things?
    Am I not able to fulfill My word, and to accomplish all that I have declared
    beforehand? Yea, and much more shall I accomplish through him who trusts
    in Me and takes Me at My word. Your faith and your trust shall please Me,
    and so shall I anoint you and send you forth in power and provision,
    saith He who is the faithful Provider.

    Fear not the face nor the opinions of man, My children, for they shall have
    no part nor say in the day of My rewards. Seek only to please Me, seek
    only to obey Me, seek only to please your Father who is in heaven,
    and in no way shall you be disappointed in that day of rewards.

    Do not fear to fail, for in Me there is no failure, and as you trust Me and set
    your hearts to serve Me and obey Me in doing the works of the kingdom,
    so shall I see and reward you richly.

    By grace are ye saved through the sacrifice of My Son. By works shall ye
    be rewarded! Do not confuse My grace with My rewards. By grace ye receive
    the gift of eternal life, but by faith and obedience ye shall earn your legacy
    in the eternal realms of My kingdom.

    Tarry not, for it is not the season to contemplate nor try to rationalize the things
    of God and the promises of God. It is the season to be about the business of
    your Father in heaven. It is the season to eat and to drink and to breathe the
    things of the kingdom. This is the hour to do the works of God,
    and to expand the kingdom of God on earth.

    All peoples and nations shall see and know My glory and My goodness,
    for I have proclaimed it from old, and so shall I bring it to pass!

    You–the redeemed ones of the LORD through the blood sacrifice of My Son–
    have been called and ordained to be partakers of My glory, and to be those
    who carry My goodness and glory into a world which teeters in fear and trembling.

    As darkness increases across the face of the earth, so shall My glory shine
    through you and so shall My Son the Christ be exalted in the earth,
    for there is no other hope available except in Him.

    Arise in faith, My people. Arise in hope, My people. Arise in great anticipation
    in what your Father is about to do in the earth. Arise and know that you have
    been invited to be participants and forerunners in a mighty wave of the
    glory and manifestation of God in the earth.

    Shalom, and walk in My peace, saith the LORD!

    From the Scriptures…

    “Arise, shine;
    For your light has come!
    And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.
    For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
    And deep darkness the people;
    But the LORD will arise over you,
    And His glory will be seen upon you.”
    (Isaiah 60:1,2)

    “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is
    with Me, to give to every one according to his work.”
    (Revelation 22:12)

    Amen! 15
  36. I would like to encourage everyone to not lose hope. So many had their hope in Trump and not God. It reminds me of Moses. God used him to help his people escape Egypt by bringing plagues and finally killing all the first born of those without the blood on the doorposts. I’m sure the people were more than excited to leave especially since the Egyptians were giving them gold and silver to leave. They thought Moses was “the man” until they came to the Red Sea and then they were mad and disappointed in him. They had put their hope in Moses and not God. God may be not be early like in the instance with Lazarus, but He is never late. He parted the Red Sea for Moses and the people and He raised Lazarus from the dead. We have to look at what God has already done. I don’t think God gave word that Trump would be president just to make the prophets look silly. It’s not over yet! The scriptures God has laid on my heart are: Proverbs 3:5,6 Trust and Isaiah 40:31 Wait.
    Just because we haven’t seen it yet, doesn’t mean we should lose hope!

    Amen! 25
    1. Hi, I would like you to listen to this video message from Derek Prince titled Ruling by Prayer. His message is coming from 1 Tim 2:1-4 where he reminds us that we as the church are to pray for those in authority, however, it does also say God can not bless wrong doings and fraud. He reminds us that God’s will is for the nation to have good government so that we are free to spread the gospel message about Christ. Take a listen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_7akj9eiMA&t=18s Be blessed.

      Amen! 1
  37. Thank you Lord that You are still on the throne and You saw the deceitfulness of our enemy. We know as Jesus said in John 10:10 “that the enemy comes to steal, to kill and destroy.” Satan is the great deceiver and many were deceived during this election process. We know the presidency was stolen, but we also know that if the thief found, he shall restore sevenfold. I am praying for a sevenfold return. God’s victory is irreversible and He will have the victory. Satan is the forever loser and in the end he will lose, so we must continue to pray, declare His word and stand strong in Him and in the power of His might, for the third Great Awakening, the billion soul harvest is coming. WE will see the victory for the battle belongs to the Lord.

    Amen! 18
  38. I would say the revival did not occur, but is occurring still. Everyone is behaving like God is restrained by our time frames. He is NOT. He can still do anything and however He wants. Of course we have to partner with Him, which we have. Let’s not be as the disciples when they watched Jesus die and thought it was over. It is NOT over. God will do as He said.

    Amen! 19
  39. What do I want released on earth…..faith in God, El Shaddai, El Elyon, Elohim…honor to God and thanksgiving, repentance, salvation, and all God has given already. Like Peter and Paul, let us stir up remembrance!

    Amen! 8
  40. God is our answer and always has been. Let us not forget to Pray for Pres. Trump and his family. His enemies surround him: Banks are refusing to continue doing businesss with him,his business/Resorts/Hotels have lost millions due to covid shut downs and he has a Senate trial coming up which if convicted they can barr him from ever holding office again. Many republican Senators seem to be desserting him. All this vitriol is not natural. IT IS DEMONIC ! He needs our intercession more than ever now !

    Amen! 35
    1. Yes, I believe it is important to continue to pray for Donald John Trump the man, not just as former president. I agree with all of the above. I am also praying that the Lord will direct him to the many wonderfully positive messages that were sent to him last week, and that he will have time to start wading through the many Scripture references that were sent in those messages, and that he will be built up spiritually.

      Amen! 8
    1. God is a God of righteousness and truth. So this can not be his will, just because He allows something doesn’t mean it’s His will. I will never believe its God’s will to keep killing babies. The Biden administration is evil you can tell that by his polices. He is trying to pass a law to make Christianity and the Bible illegal. He got into office illegally.

      Amen! 11
  41. We know that it is God alone who controls the course of human events and brings rulers in and takes them out. Ps 75:7, Dan 2:21. When we pray we should ask the Lord what He wants so we can pray according to His will. We can either partner with Him as He moves leaders around or we can believe that He will only do what we think is best, do what we want so we can continue our comfortable life. What if God’s plan was to use Pres. Trump for a purpose and when that was accomplished to bring in someone like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris? Is it possible that the world needs to go in the direction Pres. Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer will take it, as scary as that is? I am a scholar of the book of Revelation and I’m telling you the world will go in the direction the Left wants it to go, the way Jesus told us it would go in Matt 24 and Revelation, whether you pray against it or not. God’s Word will come to pass whether you partner with Him and His plans or not. Jesus told us what was to come so that we would have peace in Him. Jn 16:33. Not in Pres. Trump or in our country and the freedoms we have enjoyed. God’s people world wide have thrived spiritually underground, in persecution and poverty. We have thrived materially in North America, but that may have led to us being too comfortable in our freedoms. It’s time to awaken, to press into God like never before, to plow up our fallow ground and allow Him to prune us and make us a Church that images Jesus as He truly is. I pray that each and everyone of us, of God’s people in North America, will stop asking for what we want and start asking Him what He wants of us.

    Amen! 28
    1. Holy, Holy God, the One True God, may the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable to you as I ask for your forgiveness. Lord God, I have failed to live as Jesus prayed for me to live…in this world but not of this world. Forgive me, my King and Savior. Guided by your steadfast love, please set me back on the path I was created to follow. In the name of your Son and my Master, Amen.

      I, like many of you, have struggled to know God’s will for myself and for the America I have loved for most of my seventy-eight years. I am so grateful to the Holy Spirit for leading me to this site. In the long months of changes and challenges, I have especially felt a kinship of true faith here, people sincerely seeking to serve our God. Yet, even here, my spirit did not have the promised peace of the Word.
      Then, some time between January 6th and the 20th, I “happened” upon a small book based on the even smaller, biblical book of Habakkuk. There I read of God’s own prophet begging his Lord not to give his sacred land and people over to its evil enemy. God heard Habakkuk’s pleading and cries of despair, still, the evil came, destroying a land and a sinful people God had blessed for so long. The prophet was, however, given a promise of restoration; a promise that would come, but not in his lifetime. Habakkuk had a choice. Accept what he didn’t understand and continue to serve God or turn away in hopelessness and deny him.
      This I now know; I allowed my understanding of God’s hatred of sin to validate my obsessive focus on the injustices overwhelming my land. I found myself talking “at” God, not “with” him. I had become “of the world,” tethered to its lies and drama, yes, even its hate. I was a sinner in desperate need of God’s grace. Reading Habakkuk’s response, Hab. 3:17-19, I was reminded that, like the prophet, God has a plan for me and it has not changed. I am here to share a vibrant, growing relationship with my Sovereign God and in it draw people to him, regardless the circumstances. May God, through his Holy Spirit, lead each of us on the path we were called to follow.

      Amen! 14
      1. Penny,

        Wow. I have been reading Habakkuk and last night re-read the chapter on Habakkuk from Linda Dillow’s classic book, Calm My Anxious Heart. I too have been finding the book of Habakkuk instructive and compelling in these times.

        What is the small book on Habakkuk you read?

        Amen! 2
        1. The book is “Hope in the Dark” by Craig Groeschel. I actually picked it up to give to someone grieving. Decided to read it first. As God often does when I have someone else in mind, he has me in his sites! The author begins with multiple story examples of hopelessness. Interesting, but being a “get to it!” kind of gal, I almost put it away. Glad I didn’t. The Holy Spirit used Habakkuk’s journey to teach me the danger in putting the creation before the Creator. I confess I have not read Linda Dillow’s book, but will now. Thanks, Judy! God’s blessings on you and yours.

          Amen! 1
    2. It was proven that the election was stolen, fraud took place, so how could that be of God. God is a God of truth and righteousness. Just because he allows something doesn’t mean it’s His will. Everything the Biden Administration stands for is evil. You can tell that by the changes he implemented day 1 in office. Joe Biden sold out the United States in a deal with CCP so his son could get a job. I know its not God’s will for us to keep killing babies. I still believe that God is going to suddenly expose the darkness. Most of us have prayed, fasted, and put our trust in Him (not in Donald Trump) and the bible says after doing all STAND.

      Amen! 7
      1. There are many instances in the Bible of God allowing wickedness to prevail. Jeremiah was accused of being a false prophet for saying the Jews would be taken captive by the Babylonians. The ruling spiritual leaders said that God would not allow the ungodly to march into Jerusalem, not desecrate the temple and certainly not take the Temple vessels beck to Babylon! Yet, that is exactly what happened. Yes, I believe the election was stolen. But I also believe God took His hand off the election and let the unscrupulous do as they pleased. Why? To accomplish His greater plan. Was it God’s will to see all but 1 of the disciples murdered for their faith? Or did He just allow it to happen? Was it God’s will for both the Northern and Southern Kingdoms of Israel to suffer the cruelty of the Assyrians and Babylonians? Yet, that is exactly what happened. Both these cultures were known for cutting babies out of their mother’s stomachs when they were invading. Was that God’s will? But, that is exactly what happened. First century Christians were tortured, crucified, had to watch as their children were fed to lions! Was this God’s will? Yet, that is exactly what happened. In the last 2 centuries Godly people have continued to be imprisoned, tortured, burned at the stake and a lot of other atrocities. Do we here in North America believe that we are somehow a higher class of believer and God will spare us what our brothers and sisters who have gone before had to endure? Can suffering under the rule of the Democrats even compare to what other Christians have suffered and are continuing to suffer in the rest of the world? These are only a few of millions of examples throughout history. At some point in time we have to look at all God allows and realize that He is accomplishing His will in so doing. In the first week of Oct. I was praying for Mr. Trump to be re-elected. The Lord clearly spoke and said, “If that happens the Church won’t wake up.” I have not said that to many people because the cancel culture has sadly infiltrated the Church. He asked me, instead, to pray for the Church to wake up. It is time to wake up and ask Him what He wants of us in these times, not to continue asking Him to take us out of them. I am currently residing outside of the US and as a registered Republican was sent a ballot that would have no chance of being counted in my Democrat stronghold of a state. When I realized it and planned to report it the Lord told me not to, that the election had gone exactly as it was supposed to. God is Sovereign and if God had wanted Mr. Trump to be President of the US today instead of Mr. Biden then that is what would have happened.

        Amen! 2
        1. Thank you for replying back. According to 1 Tim 2:1-4 Good government is God’s will. God’s desire is for His word to be spread throughout the world and we must have good Government to get this accomplished. Bad government hinders the preaching of the gospel.
          God’s promise to us is in 2 chronicles 7:14. It’s not over. Be blessed.

          Amen! 5
      2. I believe nothing happens and nothing exists unless it is God’s will. Our God is not just merciful, He is wrathful and very upset with us. The Church has failed God. Biden is a man who has been in his church for his whole life, 78 years. Does he have the Spirit in him, only God knows. But the outward signs of how he votes for abortions until birth and how he sees gender are two examples of what is in his heart. God made man and women, two genders only. God makes babies as a blessing and He is appalled at the killing that we allow. God calls His Children to Him but not all hear.

        Why is Biden’s church silent, especially on these two prime issues. I have prayed that God would change the hearts of our leaders in government. That’s all I can do. My prayer time is for the Church to repent and turn back to God and His Word. Until that happens we are doomed to destroy ourselves, as God watches.

        I ask everyday day……where are the people with integrity in their hearts?
        Where has virtue gone? Surely there must be a few who will not allow this perversion of The Word. Surely, the sleeping will arise and stop these atrocities. But, I only see people who are being lead by evil to forget their morals and say Evil is good and good is evil. ( Some are raised that way) I call them children od darkness.

        So, let”s pray for The Church.

        The Lord says in Habakkuk, “the righteous will live by his faith”. Let us all try in these dark times to live by our faith and The Spirit within us will help us to stay in Faith.

        Amen! 1
  42. We need to remember if God is for us, who can be against us? I am praying for this adminstration to be blessed with wisdom and discernment and honesty, but more importantly I am praying that God will bless his own in every way.I am praying for increase and favor and blessings for God’s people. Let them do what they want, but God can and will bless and protect those who are faithful. I refuse to live in fear of them. What can man do to me? Be strong and courageous. Do not fear. He is our ever present help in times of trouble.

    Amen! 19
  43. One of the psalmist said, “Don’t I hate those who hate You, oh Lord!!! I pray that all things done in darkness will be exposed by the light of Gods glory! I pray that Gods justice will prevail in our nation. I pray Mr. Biden repents and finds Jesus! I Pray President Trump is rightfully restored to the Presidency of the United States republic! I bind all the powers of witchcraft over this nation. I send them back to Hell where they came from. I loose the spirit of freedom and revival over this nation and our children! I pray that through these circumstances You will open their eyes to the truth and that You will restore our prodigals to us once again!!! Lord forgive us for our failure to live righteously before them and not standing in the gap for their souls as we should. Give us courage to speak out against the evils of abortion, pedophilia, LGBTQ, etc. Let our children see us stand for Your righteous truth! Let us be bold as lions and gentle as doves. I ask all these things in Your precious and holy name Lord Jesus! I plead Your blood over the children of this land. Our eyes are on You. In God we trust! Amen

    Amen! 33
  44. It’s interesting to hear your point of view, Shilpa. If you are being sincere in the above post and I have no reason to believe you are not. It has been very important the last 4 years to see what Donald Trump did, not only what he said, or certainly what the press said, that he said. I have watched carefully and have seen and heard Donald Trump Do certain things or say certain things and the media twist it in an unbelievable way! I have never seen that before, in my lifetime.

    I genuinely would like to hear from you about what you think, the pain Donald Trump inflicted upon the vast majority was?

    Thank You

    Amen! 5
  45. I agree heartily with Rachelle. We are right on track for victory with all exposure of what has transpired, all orchestrated by the left. They are coming down!!!!
    We are not going to be judged by our Heavenly Father. There has been 2 decades of idenficational repentance in the national intercessor ministry I’ve been involved in and the cup of march is full. America is going to be saved and what is coming is so big it will astound us. Hallelujah !!!

    Amen! 10
  46. Are you sure you’re on the right site? Your second sentence seems to summarize what the mainstream media has been telling everybody to believe. Times have changed. If you tune in to reliable news sources, you will find out what’s truly going on…which is not being reported by opinionated, fake news. This isn’t about my personal opinion. Simply put, we are either tuning in to truth or deception. Lord Jesus, please guide and protect Shilpa and bring her within the safety of Your arms.

    Amen! 6
  47. As a politically active Christian I do not share the sentiment of feeling a loss and like God didn’t hear my prayer by the inauguration, actually just the opposite. The previous administration was oppressive and divisive among our nations and directly inflicting pain upon a vast majority.

  48. Fear Not! DO NOT LOSE HOPE just because you do not see your answer YET. Answers do not have to come right WHEN we think they should! God has His own timing for really great reasons. Yes, It looks LATE… AND it IS uncomfortable… even painful… but God IS answering our prayers and you will see it! It does NOT matter what it looks like this week or next. God did not give us an exact date this would happen and all is not lost because we went ‘past the 20th’. He DID say President Trump would be president these next four years… so it must be so. Keep AGREEING that God’s will is done on earth as it is in Heaven. God has not fallen off His throne. He is NOT weak and He did NOT forsake us. WE MUST LEARN A RADICAL TRUST IN HIM… even under GREAT pressure like we have never seen! He made dry bones live so He can handle this! President Trump IS still our President under the ORIGINAL Constitution. The real inauguration is legally March 4th… not Jan 20th. The new ‘Corporation of the U.S.A.’ that POSED as our Constitution in 1871 is NOW being DEMOLISHED. Do some research. Dig. You will find it. God REALLY IS ANSWERING our prayers and NOW is the time to move out of HEAVINESS of heart into Thanks and Praise toward Him! God really is BIGGER than the enemy and our Father has GOOD plans for us. He wants us to TRUST Him with expectancy right now while moving in our authority. See Luke 10:19 I like the Passion version. So Father… I ask that you refresh and revive your people now. Father would you show each one what you are doing so they do not lose heart and they do not turn aside from what you have already placed in their hearts. You say that your sheep HEAR your voice and no other voice will they follow. I ask that you speak your TRUTH clearly to them so they can push past their current level of faith in you… up into the next levels. I speak a renewed HOPE, STRENGTH, and JOY over each one in JESUS MIGHTY and VERY POWERFUL NAME! Amen!

    Amen! 38
  49. I thought that it was the will of God and I accepted it although I did not understand it. Jesus Christ is my life-line. I believe that God has a perpurse this year. I welcome a good church national revival. Trump helped us. I felt good about my support of God. With Obama I was embarrassed to express it. My patiorism was exzemplified with Trump. With Obama I felt almost asharmed. He did not represent my religious or patioric beliefs like Trump did.I will miss Trump. I am trying to pray for Biden–it hard to pray for someone who is pro-abortion when I am pro-life. I pray for all of you and that God will give me guidance to pray for our nation and the new politicians.

    Amen! 15
  50. In reading Romans 13, I can’t help but wonder what would have happened if our founders had taken that to mean they shouldn’t oppose King George? Had he not been placed there by God?

    Just wondering.

    Amen! 13
  51. 1 Timothy 6:9-11 ESV
    But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs. But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.

    Proverbs 28:20
    A faithful man will abound with blessings, but whoever hastens to be rich will not go unpunished.

    I pray that any man or woman chosen, who is a faithful servant of God, flee senseless and harmful desires that will do harm to them, their families and this nation. Those who have wandered away and are not in fellowship with God will be drawn to Him and His Son again, abounding in truth. Those who have never been in relationship with their creator will be drawn to His side as the error of their ways are revealed. And all who come to know, follow and serve Him will possess boldness, love, truth, strength and abound with blessings.

    Amen! 15
  52. Psalm 126 v 6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

    Lord we pray for an outpouring of your Holy Spirit on the nation and many souls saved.

    In Jesus name
    Amen

    Amen! 38
  53. I feel it’s very simple, God’s King, Donald Trump, was removed from office by a coup. Led by Joe Biden, China ECT (the anti christ spirit) much like David with Absalom. Just as his son was never the King so Joe B is never recognized as King by God. Therefore neither should we, we should use our God give authority as”Son’s” to evict the trespasser and return the Lord’s King and as surely as Absalom was defeated so will Joe,by what ever means the Holy Spirit chose

    Amen! 54
    1. Yes I During his last rally I saw a bowl of oil being poured on Trumps head from heaven. It took me by surprise. But it meant He was Gods chosen leader but satan will always try to challenge and usurp. We will see what happens in the end. LET US PRAY,PRESS ON, HOPE ACT and not give up. JESUS is the Only one hope, a indescribably precious hope at that. and anchor for USA, We have ONE HOPE prayers and events scheduled throughout the usa. For more info email ONEPRECIOUSHOPE@gmail.com Shalom https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpR7GLKX9_M&t=4s

      Amen! 18
  54. But God will expose it. He may bring forth judgment He may ask us to rise up against it. But God said, my ways are much higher than yours. Let God have His way. And expect God to move dynamically when we trust Him with a determination to move with Him not against Him.

    Amen! 35
    1. GOD’s got this. Keep praying do not give up. We prayed for the truth to be revealed. And that is what is doing. It is up to GOD now. He will not let us down. He loves us. He loves all the adopted babies. He needs to expose all the evil. Then he will take care of it. Watch and see!!! Hallelujah praise GOD

      Amen! 28
    2. Amen! I agree with you! Our Father’s plan is STILL in play and He is going DEEP. It will come to pass before our eyes and it is much better than what we are being told by MSM… which I don’t listen to anyway! Hallelujah! …on earth as it is in Heaven. There will soon be Justice and Righteousness. Our job is to keep encouraging people that it is NOT over. God will have His way. And we can help people TRUST at a level they have never stretched to before. People will trade sorrow, grief, and heaviness for STRENGTH, JOY, and PRAISE of the Lord!

      Amen! 12
  55. Yesterday was a hard day for me, too. Biden’s appeal for unity sounded so hollow, when he also makes it clear that it applies only to the people who agree with him! And I find it very distressing to be associated with white supremacists! So near midnight last night, I was reading from Isaiah 51, and verse 7 rang like a bell: “Hear me, you who know what is right, you people who have my laws in your hearts: Do not fear the reproach of men or be terrified by their insults. For the moth will eat them up like a garment; the worm will devour them like wool. But my righteousness will last forever, my salvation through all generations.” What a comfort to know that He understands how we feel, and what we need to hear in order to keep going!

    Amen! 72
    1. I agree with the hollowness. Words are empty when the policies cause more division. I believe all our prayers have been heard and the Lord is not done exposing the massive corruption his party was involved with to get him into the White House. We are in eager anticipation to see what the Lord will do.

      Amen! 41
    2. I understand how you feel. But the TRUTH is… it is NOT over. Don’t lose heart! Much is happening that many do not know about. God is working behind the scenes. Do not shrink back. Soon it will be in the open. HE WILL HAVE HIS WAY. When it all becomes public… we will be the ones God asks to reach out to those who were caught in the big deception. They will feel like you do now. Many people will be hurting and will turn to God for help.

      Amen! 8
  56. I didn’t read one word in this article about the FRAUD and corruption in this election from the democrats. This fraud wasn’t done by non-voting Christians or by Gods will. He’s not into fraud and corruption

    Amen! 49
    1. I hear you Ginny. Just as they blatantly & arrogantly stole the election and thumbed their noses in the face of God, may He do them likewise.
      Ps.7:12-16
      12 If one does not repent, He will sharpen His sword;
      He has bent His bow and taken aim.
      13 He has also prepared deadly weapons for Himself;
      He makes His arrows fiery shafts.
      14 Behold, an evil person is pregnant with injustice,
      And he conceives harm and gives birth to lies.
      15 He has dug a pit and hollowed it out,
      And has fallen into the hole which he made.
      16 His harm will return on his own head,
      And his violence will descend on the top of his own head

      Amen! 30
    2. Ginny, you are so right. None of those things are God’s will. His Word is clear on that. His Word says He hates evil and for us to not call what is evil good and that bad trees can only bear bad fruit. Our Father is good and just.

      It’s not of God to pretend we didn’t see the mountain of voter fraud evidence nor get into agreement with lawlessness. Lord, according to Your Word in Psalm 37, let it be so for the wicked who’ve exalted themselves in the land to do only evil continually for far too long.

      Amen! 29
    3. Ginny – Good point. I didn’t specifically address voter fraud, but that would definitely fit into the activities of the “spirit of air.” We covered this topic extensively since last June. Still praying for the ongoing court cases.

      Amen! 5
  57. Thank you – this article was very encouraging. You are right we are in a time of mourning and revival. I love getting my IFAPRAY emails and join you all in praying salvation for our world and leaders.

    Amen! 23
  58. I, too was mourning because things did not happen the way we prayed, BUT GOD!!! I want to encourage
    everyone, your prayers are in the bowls in heaven. Delay is not denial. The scripture the Lord gave
    me this morning when I woke up is. “Cast not away your fearless confidence, for it has a glorious and great reward. For you have need of patience to bear up under difficulties, so that when you have carried out the will of God you may receive the promise. Hebrews 10:35.

    Don’t think it is all over. Don’t give us hope. It’s not over. Yes we may have more attacks from
    elected officials, But we must remember we are called to be the Light of the World, the Salt of the Earth.
    A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Let us speak boldly the Word of God. I believer we are on the
    verge of a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit in America!!
    We must be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord. Pray for souls to come to
    Christ as we declare the Word of God without fear. Be bold as a lion. Let the Lion of Judah roar as
    we declare His Word!!!

    Amen! 49
    1. … “our prayers are in the bowls of heaven…”

      “When he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell before the Lamb, each holding a harp and golden bowls of incense which are the prayers of the saints
      Rev 5:8

      Amen! 18
  59. Dave Kubal just read this article on this morning’s prayer call and I haven’t had time to read all the written comments below, but I have several thoughts:

    First, we need to enlarge our view of the situation and see it from God’s perspective. God is not bound or concerned in the slightest with our timelines and deadlines. He did not say (as some of us did) “Oh, gosh, He missed His chance to ‘stop the steal’ at the election! He didn’t intervene in the Supreme Court decision not to take Texas’ lawsuit! He didn’t stop VP Pence from certifying all the invalid votes! And now He missed His final opportunity to prevent the Inauguration of the Great Pretender! The prophecies were all wrong! It’s over!”

    God did not “miss any opportunities.” He is in control and right on schedule. Nothing took Him by surprise. He did not say “You guys pray and fast until you are overwhelmed and exhausted and I’ll see what I can do–but there are so many other factors, they may outweigh your prayers. That’s the way it is.” He did not say, “Oh golly, I hadn’t anticipated this. I don’t have a Plan B ready. Give me a minute.” He hasn’t thrown up His hands or even patted us on the back and said, “I’m as disappointed as you are.”

    He promised, “IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND HEAL THEIR LAND.”

    We, His people called by His name, DID humble ourselves, DID pray, DID seek His face, DID turn from our wicked ways (and still are.)

    So He told us after the Sept. 26 Day of Prayer and Repentance on the Washington Mall (through prophetic intercessor Cindy Jacobs*, for one): “There is a turning in this nation. Because you have prayed, you have begun an awakening. I’ve heard you! I have seen your tears. I have listened to what you have prayed. I have waited for a day when My people would return, when My people would repent.This is going to be in a way a worldwide election–this coming election. The prayer bowls in heaven are getting filled and as you continue to cry out, as you continue to pray, there will be a day of tipping of the bowls of the prayers of the intercessors upon this nation.”

    Part of that prophecy is still in the process of being fulfilled.

    He has seen the arrogance, the thievery and the treachery of the wicked. (You can bless this administration with the knowledge of the truth. Bless them with conviction of sin and with repentant hearts. Bless them with God’s judgment in this life to bring them to salvation before they have to face irreversible Judgment in the next.)

    God will not be mocked. He knows this is an illicit administration. Perhaps the hubris and blasphemy of the perpetrators are just not quite ripe for judgment but it will be swift and sure. They will not get away with this and many prophecies, including President Trump’s restoration, may well still be fulfilled.IT’S NOT OVER YET! Keep praying. Keep trusting. God has something wonderful in store for us!

    Yes, some prophecies are false. But some are softened or retracted because of our repentance (think Ninevah.) And some just haven’t been fulfilled YET (including the last part of Dave Kubal’s prophecy about the rapids).

    Amos 3:7 says, “The Sovereign Lord never does anything without revealing his plan to his servants, the prophets.” I Thessalonians 5:20-21 says “Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good.” In these last days God is keeping us current with what He is doing and about to do (the charismatics are more aware of these than we are). Just ask God for discernment as to whether they are legitimate prophetic statements or not, in alignment with His word.

    I am hoping to write and post “Revisiting the Prophecies” on my blog hiddeninjesus.wordpress.com soon

    *Cindy Jacobs’ word from God is at hiddeninjesus.wordpress.com with the title, GOD: “There is a turning in this nation. Because you have prayed, you have begun an awakening. I’ve heard you!”

    Amen! 71
    1. Sad to say I would pray for wisdom in choice of words when addressing any official about life being “temporary” lest they wrongly interpret it as a threat and use it to persecute or discredit someone’s character or religious affiliation.

      Amen! 6
    2. Amen! God is answering our prayers. He is exposing, shining His Light into the darkness. We can’t let giants discourage us. Let’s have a more excellent spirit like Caleb. He is cleansing, exposing things we need to repent of…then suddenly

      Amen! 20
    3. Very well stated Amen Jessica. You stated very well all of the important facets of this situation. These too are my sentiments exactly. Thank you very much. I will check out your site.

      Amen! 6
    4. Wow you are so right, thank you. We prayed that the evil will be exposed, well it’s still being exposed. It is deeper then anyone can imagine! This is a spiritual battle, between GOD’s kingdom and the evil one’s. GOD’s people do not give up! Fight with prayer 🙏 for our babies. For our children and grandchildren! Do not give up. “On word Christian soldiers”.

      Amen! 18
    5. Yes! Prophet Hank Kunneman has been prophesying much of this for a while now. There is a great broadcast called Flashpoint with Gene Baily on The Victory Channel at http://www.govictory.com/flashpoint with accurate Prophets. It is very encouraging. God is doing miracles behind the scenes and things will turn around. God is great and His love endures forever!

      Amen! 5
      1. >This is going to be in a way a worldwide election–this coming election.< That was the wording of the prophecy. It IS worldwide, in the sense that so much is hanging on it. If America falls, the hopes for nations around the world–for freedom, rights and justice,for a refuge, will be dashed.

        Amen! 1
  60. I myself grieved for the fact that President Trump wasn’t our president not for the man but what he did for us as a Christian and a nation. I kept praying that President Trump would be president. They’re was always something going wrong and I kept saying Ok Lord n you have something that we haven’t seen. Well even though things didn’t turn out the way I hoped I know God has something going on that we can’t see. I will pray for this administration that they’re will be restraint from evil. I will pray for their salvation and that God through our prayers will turn back the enemies schemes. In His Wonderful Name JESUS!

    Amen! 37
  61. Thank you, well said. We are not use to being aware of evil ruling. God is shaking us to wake up. There are so many of us retired folks who now have time to focus on were God wants to employ us as intercessors. It does not matter what our health or physical situation is, if we show up for duty He WILL put us in the battle. Whether that be spiritual or physical or both. God has given us the great honor of being His voice, hands, feet,and the dispensers of his grace,truth, love, joy,peace, patience, goodness kindness godliness faithfulness and SELF-CONTROL. Now as we forgive and pray for our persecutors we are to live as little Christ’s in this dark world. 🌟 Shining His love. May His peace rule in our hearts and minds and be prepared to suffer, to death if need be, for His glory. For HIS Glory

    Amen! 29
      1. I am in agreement about the purpose for my remaining years being to remind my grandchildren about putting on their Armour in preparation for possible future persecution during conversations with them and to reinforce what their parents and churches have taught them about God.

        Amen! 1
  62. I agree that God did not do as we expected. Yet we keep trustingHim as He cares for us. He knows what we need is not always what we want. I, for one, mourned for Donald Trump as my President, not for the man, but what he stood for. I kept waiting for God to do something to change the results, and yet here we sit with Joe and Kamala ruling the USA.
    We must pray ever so strongly. We must trust ever so strongly. We must believe He is the One in control.
    I humbly bow before Him and say You are the One true God, I will serve You and honor You through it all! We will suffer and that suffering will truly bring a Spiritual Awakening like the world has never seen.

    Amen! 27
  63. Thank you for these words of wisdom. At the moment I am weeping for our country as I believe many others are doing. “Weep with those who weep.” As God enables and empowers me, my weeping is turning to resolve and continued prayer with fasting to call on God asking Him to pour out His Holy Spirit in new ways to draw people to repentance and salvation. Also to raise up more and more intercessors who can draw together online and unite together as one in the Holy Spirit. Then show us what we can do to restore our country to take it out of the hands of the communist spirit and system and sex traffickers and evildoers. Our eyes are more open to what is real. God, show us how to bring down these strongholds in the spirit and in the natural. God, bring Your kingdom of heaven to earth with Your will being done on earth as it is done in heaven. Make Your glory visible on earth as it already is in heaven. I declare that You are doing this today in the name and power of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

    Amen! 23
  64. I was unfamiliar with the concept of praying the scriptures until the Lord encouraged me to “Pray the Proverbs” over our nation. There is POWER in praying God’s words back to Him. For example, today I prayed Proverbs 20:28(TLB)–If a king is kind, honest, and fair, his kingdom stands secure. I prayed, “Father, I pray that You will bring kindness, honesty, and fairness out of Mr. Biden so that the United States of America can stand secure.” These words are God’s will for America (Thy will be done on earth), and the intent is God’s will for me (pray for all who are in authority over us). Double bonus! Pray, saints, pray! Not a word is wasted.

    Amen! 28
    1. Diane,
      GOD always supplies an answer to our conundrums. As you have wisely counseled, praying Scripture helps guard against whatever could have been double-mindedness–praying for those in “authority,” particularly when that authority was usurped through deception and alliances built through greed and corruption. Our overall goal is to pray in alignment with GOD’s will and character so that our witness is true and pure.

      Thank you for this posting.

      Amen! 1
  65. As I praise God with you for all the blessings of President Trump over the last 4 years I am aware that our Prime Minister in Canada has totally embraced the Biden and Harris agenda. It wasn’t until the Covid that I began to fast and pray about the abortion industry. I knew nothing about this horrific business. I joined the 40 days for life campaign and my life has never been the same. I need to pray for our governments like never before. I have felt extremely alone until I found this website. I struggle to find the balance between being awake to what is happening in this world and keeping my eyes on Jesus, focusing on His sovereignty, power, peace and love. I am so grateful to be part of this community. We are all family and I am your sister. God is so so good.

    Amen! 34
    1. Dear Sharron, I pray over you that you will receive & feel the support and comfort from the prayers of this website. It is a heavy time of darkness for your country also. We, Children of God, must stay to together now, more than ever.

      “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God. And that is what we are! The
      reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.” 1John 3:1

      “Therefore dear friends, since you already know this, be on your guard so that you will not be carried away by the error of
      lawless men and fall from your secure position. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
      To Him be glory both now and forever. Amen”. 2Peter 3: 17

      May you feel the love, Patricia

      Amen! 3
      1. Thank you so much for your message Patricia. It means a lot to me. It’s so wonderful that we can pray and encourage one another across the miles. Love and much gratitude Sharron from Canada

        Amen! 1
        1. Sharron, God bless you! Here is a scripture from Jude to encourage you:
          Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy,
          to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.

          God bless you for standing for preborn babies.
          (I also commented to you below, You are not alone in your struggle)

    2. You aren’t alone in that struggle. We all need to be both aware of the battle against evil works and focused on Jesus. I agree with you in praying for our government as well, so that we may have peace. The thing that concerned me the most about (former) Acting President Biden was the call for unity while he was appointing radical statists to high positions. It reminded me of Jeremiah’s words, (Jeremiah 6: 14) “They have healed the brokenness of this people superficially, saying “Peace, peace, when there is no peace!” This goes further to say:(vs. 15)
      Were they ashamed because of the abomination they have done?
      They were not even ashamed at all;
      They did not even know how to blush.
      Therefore they shall fall among those who fall;
      At the time that I punish them,
      They shall be cast down,” says the LORD!

      Speedily and soon may you do it, Oh Lord!

      Amen! 1
  66. A point to ponder perhaps is the early church had no say in the rulers they had to live under.
    America is a representative republic, we choose our government, yet perhaps the church has not been as good a steward of that responsibility as we could be.

    Amen! 33
  67. We have died to ourselves and live through Him. His Holy Spirit dwells within us, directing us, giving us His comfort and strength in these dark days. He is our light, and we are His. Thank you,Jesus!

    Amen! 11
  68. Thank you for your faithfulness & encouragement. God has called me to be an intercessor, & I will continue. I ask God how to guide me to pray for our Nation’s future & for God’s forgiveness & mercy. I am grieving, but I won’t stop praying. My trust is in the Lord & not in my own understanding. I ask Him to give me wisdom & endurance to walk faithfully with Him until the end .

    Amen! 23
  69. Thank you! This is so well said and deeply encouraging! I too will persist in prayer for truth to be exposed and for our leaders. Holy Spirit, give me the grace to love and pray for my enemies, as Jesus commanded. God’s faithfulness endures!

    Amen! 16
  70. Dave, thank you for that word. It’s been quite a journey and it does indeed leave us with many questions. I am beginning to realize that God doing it His way, He has allowed many lies and evil works of darkness to be exposed, which that have shown us how to pray. We asked God to continue to let President Trump remain but concluded our prayers with “Your will be done” thinking our will was His will. These are exciting times we are living in. Just to think we are His remnant, but we do get scared and uneasy when we take our focus and our eyes off of Him. He IS our single source and we must keep our eyes on Him and what He calls us to do each day. We must continue in His Word and as you said fellowship with likeminded believers. Thank you again for the 24/7 prayer line. You and Kris are a blessing in these days “for such a time as this!”

    Amen! 25
  71. Where do we go from here? Let’s not stop praying for corruption to be exposed. If God isn’t finished with the exposing, we must continue to pray. Think of Jesus when He spoke to the religious leaders of His day. “woe to you,” he said. And then he explained to them what they were guilty of.
    Father, I pray that in Your time and Your way, You would completely clean out the corruption in the government. Lord, I also pray that you would discipline Your church. Lord, raise up Your leaders that would speak the truth to Your people, calling them back to holy living and prayer. We were all mixed up in our programs and bigger and better places to meet. Take us back to Acts 2:43-47. Root out our lackadaisical attitudes. Root out apostasy. Root out unholiness. Lord, for so many years I prayed that You would do what You needed to do to bring Your people back to right living. Now, Lord, here we are. It isn’t fun. I am really tired of wearing that mask when I shop. Father, break our hearts as Yours is broken. Let us weep and cry out for renewal, renovation, full repentance as a nation, and spiritual awakening. Father, I thank You for this intercessory prayer group. Thank you for positioning us on our individual positions on the wall. Strengthen Your intercessors. Provide for their needs. Grant encouragement. We are rebuilding the foundations. Give us eyes to see and ears to hear in these days, O Mighty and Glorious Father. Holy Spirit, pour out a fresh anointing on each intercessor. Pour out fresh oil on the staff at IFA. Do a mighty work in us and across the nation as we offer entreaties, prayers, petitions, and thanksgivings for all who are in authority over us that we may live a quiet life in full observance of our religion. Amen.

    Amen! 41
  72. Thank you for this article. It gives hope and affirms the truths of the Word of God and of what is happening in America. I too was one of those called into extraordinary intercession and fasting for America that I have never experienced before.

    Amen! 13
    1. I agree with almost everything you mentioned. However one thing you said-you are tired of wearing the mask. If I may speak to that: Don’t wear it anymore! Take it off. A mandate is not a law. If a place of business says something to you, tell them you have an exemption. Until enough people stand up and say “no more” they will keep pushing it. If they will not let you shop without it, leave and give your business to a place that will allow you to breathe freely. And encourage others to do the same. When they are hit in their pocketbooks, they will change their stance and not be mask Nazis. That’s what I do and I haven’t shopped one time with a mask on. May God’s blessings overtake you and may you have boldness and courage to stand up for your God-given right to breathe freely.

      Amen! 11
      1. Yes, totally agree. We have been made in God’s image, and it is evil to hide His image in us from one another, and to confuse and make His image in us unrecognizable to others; in Him the veil is lifted (2 Cor 3:14-18). Also, God has breathed into us His breath, that we might live (Gen 2:7); it is wrong to defile His breath in us, and to quench His spirit. There is a God-given reason none of us likes to wear a mask. Consider whether it is right in the sight of God to adhere to mask mandates, or to submit to the Spirit of God, and rest in His peace.
        Dear Lord, please give us all wisdom and discernment, and the boldness to live and speak for your glory.

        Amen! 11
      2. If we all get the vaccine. And the children been exposed and develop the herd immunity. Do we still have to wear masks 😷 the rest of our lives! Think about it. Maybe we are being lied too. Joe Biden got the vaccine shot. They showed a picture of it. Why was he wearing one at the his inauguration??

        Amen! 1
        1. That’s a good question. I’d be inclined to say yes, we likely will. One good thing about the mask wearing is it rather makes facial recognition software useless. (So there’s a silver lining to every cloud 🙂 I see no good in the vaccine jab and much potential for harm. My mother and sister both had a flu vaccine last year, (as per doctor’s orders) and were sicker after the shot than they were after actually GETTING the flu. So no COVID 19 shot for them, Praise God!

          Amen! 1
  73. I’m listening to your webcast about how we pray for those who cannot pray for those who are in office. My thoughts are that we pray for unity, this unity comes as we are willing to let all offense go and to love. The love Jesus speaks to us about comes from a willingness to be joined by love, which comes as we lay down all hurt, all disappointment and even hatred that LOVE will win. 2+Corinthians 4: 7-18 are my life verses and I see the Church in this place at this time. He is faithful and will help us to stand in faith and draw upon His Word in His Presence.

    Amen! 10
    1. Agree. We also need to speak the truth in love, with grace.
      And the everlasting Word of our Lord Jesus is the key Truth we must hang onto, and speak, for faith comes by hearing the Word of God.
      And God wants all to come to repentance and the knowledge of the truth, so how will they know the Truth if they have never heard it!

      Amen! 6
  74. For those doubting and in despair, read John 11. Lazarus had died. Mary went running to Jesus, grieving and lamenting crying out to Jesus…”if only You had been here, Lazarus would still be alive”. Jesus purposely waited until it appeared that it was too late, that nothing could be done. GOD IS NEVER TOO LATE!!! HE ALONE has ALL power. HE has not forsaken our country. He is still working out His plans. We must continue to stand in faith, praying and believing for His kingdom to come and His will to be done, on earth, as it is in heaven!!

    Amen! 41
  75. It was a failure on my part when years ago after Pr. Obama was elected that I stopped praying our leaders then. I had been part of the Presidential Prayer team under Bush but when Obama took over I stopped, For whatever reason I didn’t trust the new President then to have the best interest of the Nation and later it was confirmed to be by his treatment of Israel through its Prime Minister which to me is the first thing I watch in all our Presidents ( I fear President Biden would do the same if not worse) But I don’t want to do the same mistake now. I intend to keep on praying for our Nation and our new leaders whether I agree with them or not ( I do not at all) I believe in prayer 🙏 and God hears them His response is according to His will I would not ask for anything different than His will. Am I concerned? Extremely. Am I to expect Christians to experience restrictions? Most certainly. Am I fearful or at least intimidated? Of what? What can men do to me? Didn’t we say that God is still in control? Those very things are what compels me to pray even for the people I do not really trust. I expect things to be quite different in the near future so be it I am not going to worry about it ahead of time. Sufficient are for the day its own problems. So, as often is the case when we have nowhere else to go but to call upon the Lord in prayer

    Amen! 31
    1. ???Are you all aware the biden is in fact a 3rd term for Obama, WHO SAID THAT w/ an earpiece “HE CAN CONTROL BIDEN FROM HIS BASEMENT”, {look it up} {oops didn’t mean to yell.} so the plot thickens. yes praying for biden will in fact be praying for obamanation.

      Amen! 3
      1. Just to be sure. I agree about the Obama 3rd term in Biden. It is clear by how many Obama era cabinet he is filling his own My prayer for Biden is for a change of heart to turn to God

        Amen! 3
  76. Pray the Angel of the LORD Who confronted Balaam will be at the elbow of our new leaders to deter their actions against Him! Pray the Body of believers will at last hear the call to earnest repentance for present and past sins, personal, generational, national, and return to our Father’s ways. Jesus spoke only what His Father gave Him,John 14:23. Jesus and His apostles kept our Father’s Sabbath,Gen 2:4,His Covenants and appointed times to meet with Him. What commands then did Jesus call us to in Matt 28? The Early Church turned us against the Hebrew Scriptures to this day. They called Jews “Christkillers,” launching virulent anti-semitic constraints which Hitler then used in seeking to wipe them out. For 70 years we’ve suffered violence and moral perversion. Many perceive the nearing Return of Messiah. Pray for the Fear of the LORD, Isaiah 11:2-3,to cleanse and prepare us.

    Amen! 11
  77. This is a great article that explains the Sovereignty of God. He is certainly supreme above all, yet He gave authority to the church. He see all and He has heard our prayers, Just because we don’t’ in the natura lsee things happening in our time or our way. The Father will have His way. He doesn’t want us to second guest His authority on our lives. This time is a time to pray like me never have with an expectation that we are heard and He is answering. I believe His Word to the church is “Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let it be afraid. I am with you always even to the ends of the earth.

    Amen! 8
    1. Thank you so much for recommending this video. It has renewed by faith to know that hope is not lost. We have the power to change history. I am continuing to pray and believe God. He has another video on how to received answers to prayer very power. Derek Prince is an awesome teacher of the word. Again, thank you so much.

      Amen! 1
  78. Great article! God’s promises are conditional on our obedience. How many believers have placed ALL their hope and trust in President Trump instead of our Lord Jesus Christ. How many are obeying His Command in Matthew 28:18-20 To go and make disciples of all nations? The majority of us have NOT obeyed this command. It is time to go back to our first love, rid our hearts of all other distractions. I believe that God will send real REVIVAL once we start obeying HIM. No one will be able to stop it. Not even Biden, Harris, Pelosi or Schumer. 🙂 Thank YOU, JESUS!

    Amen! 11
  79. I agree that revival is happening
    God is preparing His Bride for the bridegroom return.
    We are called to keep our lamps full.
    Drawing into an intimate relationship with Holy Spirit, to train our ears to hear what is being said from heaven’s established will to be released on the earth, stirs me up in courage to remain focused on how the prophets and disciples from old endured opposition while living underpagan authorities.

    Always our allegiance is in our King, abiding under His wisdom, creative strategies to live above reproach, respond as Jesus did to those who were trying to trick him into disobeying the law.

    Review of past miracles where God blatantly proved His power against false gods accounted for in 1 Kings 18:16-40.
    450 Prophets of Baal slaughtered v. 40
    Elijah knew God’s faithful power.
    I am encouraged by faith our forefathers displayed, in action.

    Does God ever change?
    Stand firm as we as God’s ambassadors respod to our Destiny calls. God will never leave us nor forsake us!

    Amen! 12
  80. 1 Timothy 2:1-3
    Amplified Bible, Classic Edition

    2 First of all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men,

    2 For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way.

    3 For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior,

    Amen! 11
    1. Thank you so much for recommending this video. It has renewed by faith to know that hope is not lost. We have the power to change history. I am continuing to pray and believe God. He has another video on how to received answers to prayer very power. Derek Prince is an awesome teacher of the word. Again, thank you so much.

  81. We are called to pray for our leaders; we are called to pray for those who persecute us. Sometimes they are separate entities and sometimes they are one and the same. If we are servants of the Most High God, we will do as He commands us.

    Amen! 12
  82. Psalm 37:34-36

    Wait on the Lord,
    And keep His way,
    And He shall exalt you to inherit the land;
    When the wicked ARE cut off, you shall see it.

    I have seen the wicked in great power,
    And spreading himself like a native green tree.
    Yet he passed away, and behold, he was no more;
    Indeed I sought him, but he could not be found.

    Amen! 21
  83. I’d like to address your comment: ” One of IFA’s founders said, “The Church gets the government we deserve.” This statement puts the full responsibility of the quality of government on the activities of the Church!” Really? So the 1st century disciples, and the apostles Peter, Paul, James, Timothy and John filled with the Holy Spirit and doing the will of God, who were also under the rule and government of Roman emperors and especially Nero (who delighted in persecuting Christians, crucifying them and alighting their bodies to burn), are you saying the 1st century “church got the government they deserved?” And it was the “full responsibility of the quality of the government on the activities of the Church” in that day? Where is the scripture to back that statement up? I don’t recall Jesus ever saying that. I think you need to seriously re evaluate what one of your IFA’s founders said in light of biblical scripture.

    Amen! 14
    1. Donna, if you read again I don’t believe the writer was in agreement with the “statement”, he was using in context to make a point regarding the soverinty of God’s will.

      Amen! 2
    2. I understand the point about “getting what we deserve” as the Body of Christ.
      Passive, Preoccupied with the world system or idol worship ( affections toward other ways for advice, comfort, counsel, alligence) created the enemies’advance where areas of sin were not confronted. Take over happened.

      Every child is accountable for their actions. Motives of the heart is being revealed.
      Christ will return when His Body is without spot or wrinkle.
      Confession, repentance and resetting full focus to be servants of our King while we are positioned in this earthly Kingdom.
      Love your comments!

      Amen! 5
    3. Donna – The point I was making by quoting Derek Prince was that – especially in a democratic republic- the Church should be able to affect culture enough to produce godly leaders who govern justly. An impotent Church having little affect on culture will allow evil leaders to rise to leadership.

      Amen! 2
      1. Hi Dave, Thanks for replying, Your last sentence just proves exactly what I am saying. In regards to Derek Prince’s comment (his quote written in this article) is false and doesn’t line up with the teachings of bible doctrine or scripture. Consider your last sentence in light of the 1st century Christians….. would you say to the apostles Peter,Paul or James…” We are under an ungodly Roman government because the 1st centry church is An impotent Church having little affect on culture (&) will allow evil leaders to rise to leadership?” I’m guessing you probably wouldn’t. Because it wouldn’t be right to blame the 1st centry Chuch for a secular government that choses to go against God. Yes, God raises and removes people in power. God allowed Saul to rule as King, even though it wasn’t God’s will for the nation of Isreal to have one, so He allowed it dispite His warning to them. God raises up people to lead and govern a nation but that individual has to chose to obey God or do as what they want. Yes, we pray for all people in government ( I would even say we pray for ALL leaders in ALL countries as well), but that doesn’t mean we blame shift. Don’t put the blame of a nation or it’s government leadership on the Body of Christ. The blame is on those individuals who hold leadership/power in government to chose what is righteous or what is not. Paul was befor King Agippa pleading for him to change his ungodly ways and come to Christ, Jesus, nor Paul nor any other deciple ever told the Body of Christ the reason the Christians have or will have a bad government was because they chose to allow it. Peace.

        Amen! 2
      1. Thank you, Susan C, and Robert for the question. I guess we have been too timid, or maybe too proud? or guilty, knowing our own sin? (yet, there is always 1 Jn 1:9) to ask God to show us how.

        Praying His Word back to Him would be a sure way, as His Word is our only offensive weapon, the very Sword of the Spirit! So praying God’s Word back to Him, in humility and need, is probably the ONLY way to defeat the enemy of our souls.

        I certainly have not done this consistently. And our God is the same yesterday, today, and forever! Are we?

        Dear Lord, please help us to mirror Your truthful, loving, gracious consistency to a watching world, and to feed the bread of life and living water to those so in need, who are all around us!

        Amen! 3
  84. Lord Jesus I thank you that you are hope and are shield and our mighty warrior. We trust that you will overthrow these imposters that are in our White House and you will not leave this nation to perish under such evil leadership.
    Lord we ask you to reveal all the Injustice all the theft all the demonic powers that are in play here and bring them crashing down to your feet. We wait on you.

    Amen! 27
      1. I pray the new admin would cease being led by satanic evil. And that their individual souls would come to know Jesus as their saviour and they would turn from their wicked ways of baby killing the baby is taken from womb and pierced with a knife in its head and from teaching our children how to have anal sex or oral sex from 12 years and up in sex ed and where to go to have their penises or breasts cut off from age 15 … so they can identify with their adolescent confusion. Will these prayers for our new admin be too judgemental for you Carlene? Or should i just ask The Lord to bless everything they do?

        Amen! 10
          1. Is do not murder in your Bible. ? I think Christians should have called out Hitler more strongly . I think christians should call out evil laws and the people who make them that stab little borned babies in head and teach horrible perversions to our children. All you can pray for is their salvation as their laws and beliefs are too hideous to sanction

            Amen! 7
        1. Gabby let this word be fufilled in your life, beloved intercessory. Titus 3:2, ESV: “to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.”

          Amen! 1
          1. I would say., never compromise the light God has given us regarding what is wrong and what is right in HIS eyes., and stay true to HIS Truth, while we pray for those who are not on the same “page” as God so that they be convicted one day, and turn to the Lord. Showing God’s love to those who disdain us and our faith in Jesus Christ without appeasing them to “keep the peace”.
            We can find an example of those who had that kind of spirit in the Scriptures in the Old Testeament.. specificially Daniel, Shadrach, Mesach and Abenego. They stayed true to their spiritual convictions with a polite gentle spirit and they showed God’s love and gentleness to everyone around them while also not compromising the Light God gave them… even if it meant death. Who knows how Daniel and his three Hebrew friends probably prayed for Nebachudnezzar … and eventually king Nebachudnezzar came to receive God as the One true God when before he was totally anti-christ. God loves even the Nebachudnezzars. We are not to compromise with them but we are to pray for them. Even if they are still to reject God in the end, no prayer is wasted before God.
            hugs!, lisa

            Amen! 1
      2. Carlene, love rejoices in the truth! (1 Cor 13:6b) Could the fact that we have been unwilling, as we have gone along, to speak truth and to call out wrongdoing be the reason so much wrongdoing has prevailed?

        Our God IS Truth, and we have done Him a disservice in not standing boldly for truth. We can, with God’s help, do so graciously, but we canNOT just brush it under the rug, because… here we are!

        Dear Lord, please fill us with Your ability to speak, as you did when you walked here in the flesh, “full of grace and truth.”

        Amen! 6
      3. Susan is rightly judging fruit! Only GOD knows every heart, but GOD says we will know them by their fruit! If the tree (person) is evil, the fruit will be evil! If the tree is righteous, the fruit would be righteous! For by their fruits you shall k ow them!

        Amen! 2
      4. When you say we are not to judge anyone are you saying we shouldn’t judge people like Stalin, Hitler, and Chairman Mao who slaughtered millions? The imposter in the White House believes in killing babies up to full term, sex hormone therapy for 8 year old’s, and hates Israel. He is evil and I stand against evil.
        What you responded to is a prayer.

        And yes I will pray everyday many times a day for this demonic empower to be removed from our nation.

        Amen! 3
    1. Jesus gave His authority to the church! He is our High Priest in Heaven interceding for us to be His hands, His feet, His heartbeat; doing His will through His. our precious Holy Spirit. When Jesus was on earth He revealed to us He did nothing without the Holy Spirit. We are called to walk as He walked, the way He walked, talked, ministering for those put in His pathway…like the lepers, the blind man, the paralyzed man, like the two dead children…like the woman with the issue of blood, on and on. Remember, as I have stated before here on IFA…Jesus reproved the active disciples for their lack of faith many times…and we are far from the miracles they performed in Jesus name..imagine how we measure up to them in this country. We have to step up to the plate, He is praying, cheering us on from the Grandstand of Heaven! We bind, we loose, we declare, decree, pray, we stand on His word, shoot them like arrows, we partner with, look to Him and follow His example of ushering in the Kingdom of Heaven…in His name; God our Fathers chosen way. We are Jesus’ active body, He is our head..the Holy Spirit leads, empowers us to be like Jesus. Jesus sends us out to do the Fathers will…preach, teach, heal the sick, cast out demons, set the captives free! I am in dire need to do these things, to come out and away from the damage the spirit of religion that has a form of godliness but denies the power…has done…I pray I never give up believing I will by God’s grace, love and mercy, come out ! May my prayer be other’s have or will…I think it is a working out our salvation til Jesus returns we need to be cognizant of, pressing in for Heavenly reward of hearing well done, My child, well done.

      Amen! 1
    2. Y’shua (Jesus) said, “By their fruits you shall know them. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, nor can an evil tree bring forth good fruit.” What I have seen from these usurpers is sure not good fruit. So I say again, Amen! to your prayer.

      Amen! 1
  85. Thank you Mr. Kubal and to our Sovereign God I bow before You in humility and praise.

    A Hymn of Praise

    Oh, the depth of the riches
    both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God!
    How unsearchable His judgments
    and untraceable His ways!
    For who has known the mind of the Lord?
    Or who has been His counselor?
    Or who has ever first given to Him,
    and has to be repaid?
    For from Him and through Him
    and to Him are all things.
    To Him be the glory forever. Amen.

    Romans 11:33-36

    Amen! 11
  86. No doubt Biden and his family Harris and her family and a large majority of congress are lost going to hell. Prayer for their salvation is Jesus’ will. Now the But, the government run by these evil people is evil and we are mandated to pray for IT. We pray for IT not to be successful in its desire to bring in pure demonic perversion and more death to babies and Israel and other evil acts but rather to be turned from its destructions against God’s people so we can live peaceful prosperous lives. Now if the IT includes the rulers as well as the evil laws they make then we must pray against their godlessness not for their success or we will not live godly peaceable prosperous lives. Do we still do kindness love souls bless them to know Jesus pray for them to know Him? That is God’s love. Yes we do those things but we do not pray for their evil to have success or be blessed in the government ruling over us. Otherwise we are part of the evil. Thy Kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. No evil in heaven. But deliver us from evil for thine is the kingdom the power and the glory forever. Sowing God’s Word kindly uncompromisingly is the love is the blessing is the good deed. Praying for their salvation but not praying for their evil wills and government to succeed because if they do succeed we are going to be severely persecuted not live in peace.

    Amen! 26
    1. We are in the last minutes if not seconds before the rapture then 7 year tribulation revealing of antichrist. I believe America was the great nation holding up the WEF antichrist euro cabal. They had to subdue it and they did.Now the preparation of the ten nation coalition. The nations coming against Israel are now ready. Iran could not have invaded Israel under Trump but is now free to do so Ezekiel 38-39. Russia and Iran live and rule in Syria … Turkey wants to reestablish Ottoman empire Libya is now a nation again and Sudan now in treaty with Israel can break it easily as they deeply hate Israel The actors are assembled. Sheba and Dedan protest the invasion because they have a treaty with Israel.( UAE Bahrain Gulf states. ) The sovereign God and His Big End Time Plan has taken over the USA but we can ask The Lord to protect we His Bride while we are still here from an evil government rule and laws.

      Amen! 10
    2. Gabby, when I realized like so many others that people were saying to pray for those who epitomize evil, I had an extremely hard time & did not want to do it. Thank you for clarifying the direction I must take; now I am at peace; praying for the sinner, not for the sinful deeds to succeed. I will forever be thankful for this revelation. The Holy Spirit used you to release me from untruth to pure joy.

      Amen! 12
  87. Jonah 2:1-10 ESV

    Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the belly of the fish, saying,
    “I called out to the Lord, out of my distress, and he answered me; out of the belly of Sheol I cried, and you heard my voice. For you cast me into the deep, into the heart of the seas,
    and the flood surrounded me; all your waves and your billows passed over me. Then I said, ‘I am driven away from your sight; yet I shall again look
    upon your holy temple.’ The waters closed in over me to take my life;
    the deep surrounded me; weeds were wrapped about my head at the roots of the mountains.
    I went down to the land whose bars closed upon me forever; yet you brought up my life from the pit, O Lord my God. When my life was fainting away, I remembered the Lord, and my prayer came to you, into your holy temple. Those who pay regard to vain idols forsake their hope of steadfast love. But I with the voice of thanksgiving
    will sacrifice to you; what I have vowed I will pay.
    Salvation belongs to the Lord!” And the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah out upon the dry land.
    ******
    As we call out to the Lord in our distress, May He deliver us from the evil one. May our hearts be overflowing with the peace of Jesus. Praying for our enemies, those who persecute us (Matthew 5:43-48) and salvation for lost souls.

    Amen! 21
  88. I am very encouraged by this article. This gives proper and biblical perspective to the recent occurences we have just experienced. Our eyes and hope should be on the living God, not any man or system. This indeed has been a strong and renewed call for intercessors and a revival as you have pointed out. God bless you and I look forward to your articles.

    Amen! 22
  89. I appreciate the commentary and encouragement. As a new reader here, I am slightly perplexed that with the number of prophetic voices still proclaiming that God does not work on man’s calendar and time table and that fraud and corruption will be exposed and dealt with,that people are so quick to throw in the towel and not contend for God’s plan to prevail. Yes, we will accept what comes and be responsible in due time, but now is not the time or season to give voice and credence to the enemy’s plan, when we as the body of Christ are the only force on the earth that has the delegated power and authority in the spirit realm to break the power and foil the principalities and powers. It is the faith and perseverance that this season draws out of believers that will bring the fullness of the revival the Lord wants to. Sure it is all his doing, but he set things up so that he needs his people to stand and agree with his plan, not Satan’s. We walk by faith and not sight, so that what is not currently sight with natural eyes becomes that way. Will you join me?

    Amen! 22
    1. Agree – we have a greater depth of recognizing what and where to pray. That is a gift. Stand strong and be courageous in our prayers, in our faith, in our Lord, who is almighty, everlasting, all-powerful… oh his wonders are endless!!!

      Amen! 1
  90. Dave, thank you for the encouragement. To say I was pleased about yesterday’s event was an understatement and I felt real sorrow for all the things that had occurred in this nation over the last few weeks, however, I continue to trust in Jesus. I can say that I had more peace than I thought possible considering the situation and I attribute that to the Father who loves and cares for me and for this great nation. Thank you for reminding us that our hope lies ultimately in Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who in the worst and best of times, is still actively involved in everything that pertains to us and this nation. I am trusting that God will bring an outpouring of the Spirit like we have never seen or experienced before. I know that my Redeemer lives and He will never leave us desolate or without hope. May we all join together as the remnant of Christ to pray for our new leadership in our country, for the Lord to direct their every step, bring them to a saving knowledge of Christ and for us to be united under the Lordship and the banner of Christ. To that end, I continue to pray that America is still the land of the free and the home of the brave and that peace will come to Israel. March on O Church eternal!!

    Amen! 17
  91. I know that I personally am in conflict with accepting God’s sovereign and divine appointment of our Government officials and what I see and hear what they are doing and plan to do to our country. I know that I need to pray for our newly elected leaders and our country and I do. But I hate to see what is going on yet at the same time I know it serves God’s purposes for good. Even knowing that, I have trouble reconciling the two. How do I find peace about it? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Amen! 3
  92. God is in control. Let His people hear
    2 Chronicles 7: 14
    If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land

    Amen! 14
  93. Thank you, Dave. Strongly agree with what you said, “to throw our hands in the air declaring, “This must be His will,” is shortsighted at best.”

    We can look an abominable evil like abortion and clearly see God’s will does NOT always happen. Many evil things happen because the Word says, “You have made people to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under their feet,” (Psalm 8:6).

    Where there is evil, there is an absence of the kingdom of God. “The kingdom of God is within you,” (Luke 17:21). Jesus said to His disciples, “And heal the sick there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you,’” (Luke 10:9). Anywhere they went, the Lord considered it to be where His kingdom also went. N

    Since, we are the carriers of His kingdom, we must take His kingdom EVERYWHERE. Not avoid certain arenas. Christians should not only talk about politics, they should run for office, sit on school boards, and be everywhere American life is affected, our children, etc. The devil doesn’t have a problem taking his dark kingdom to every area of society, we must do so now.

    Carriers Of The Kingdom of God – https://swordandspiritwriter.com/2020/11/20/carriers-of-the-kingdom-of-god-boy-do-his-children-complicate-what-he-made-simple/

    I also wonder if the real reason many, not all, churches have been silent is b/c of their 501c3 status and fear of losing it instead of saying it’s better to obey God than man – another repentance point. Though Pres Trump did reverse many of the limitations of the Johnson Act to protect church leaders. Who cares about tax deductions when donating money anyway? His children do not give to get tax deductions but b/c the Giver lives in us, and His Spirit in us loves to bless.

    AND many believers in America are not counted among the “we” who refused to talk about abortion, politics, etc. in church, however, the church was sure to silence them if they tried. I tried sending all sorts of messages to churches about the truth about abominable, UNethical vaccines containing cells/DNA from aborted babies in them and was always ignored.

    Praying and NOT giving up. The answer to the cries of many is coming, but it is often darkest/looks dead before it comes.

    Amen! 13
  94. But he didn’t !! And we cannot ever know ALL the pressure that was applied on him! I see many people calling him Traitor on Social Media. I think that grieves Our Lord! It’s so easy to HATE right now! And I cannot see how that promotes our God of Love. I pray Lord HELP US! We are wounded! Many people like Pence have failed to follow through on things we believed needed to happen but YOU LOVE THEM ANYWAY! Please forgive US (ALL OF US) our trespasses and Lead US not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL! For THINE is the KINGDOM AND THE POWER, AND THE GLORY FOREVER!!!! Amen!

    Amen! 11
    1. I agree. It’s very wrong to abandon Pres Trump now. In Oct 20, 2020, he said he considered himself a non-denominational Christian. So, he’s also our brother. All doors were closed by evil men and women who would not allow the evidence to be seen (audited forensically, etc.), so they and the media could perpetuate the lie: “There is no evidence.”

      I’ve been in a terrible situation where evil men and women were up against me as well, falsely accusing me, etc. without cause, and it looked like evil won. Totally insane and irrational resistance came against me.

      Like Pres Trump, it made no sense for them to not take my evidence seriously, and I too was ignored. But the entire 3.5 years, I prayed and fasted and stood on the Word (e.g. Ps 37, Ps 18), then SUDDENLY the Lord gave me a GREAT victory over my enemies. The Lord caused to happen to them just as the Word says He would in Ps. 37, etc. Every single thing they mocked me about for telling the truth for, the Lord vindicated me, and exposed every single thing I said as the undeniable truth.

      I believe God is answering our prayers. Pres Trump did win. God sees all. Possibly it is partly for Pres Trump’s safety and protection. They hated him that much.

      He won, but we also cried out for evil to be crushed in the land, and I believe they will get comfortable, just as the wicked who came against me did when they thought they won, and the Word of the Lord will crush their plans and the exposure will be so great, their fate so sealed, President Trump’s and America’s vindication so far above, that we will rejoice at how He answers. BUT we can’t stop praying prayers of faith that join with His will. E.g. Ps 37.

      Amen! 26
        1. Hi Emily, Yw. I posted my above mentioned testimony of what the Lord did for me and my son very recently. I wept and wept remembering how far above He answered my prayers. No obligation to read it but it is powerful and why I will NEVER give up praying the promises of God despite what it looks like:

          When God is answering your prayers but things look dead (maybe even frightening): The State of America and a powerful, personal testimony

          https://swordandspiritwriter.com/2021/01/19/when-god-is-answering-your-prayers-but-things-look-dead-maybe-even-frightening-the-state-of-america-and-a-powerful-personal-testimony/

          If you do check it out, I pray it blesses and fuels your faith in His Word. <3

          Amen! 3
  95. Exactly what our Bible study has been discussing..
    Praying fjr those in authority yet still knowing our Lord gives us what we need …in order to hear HIM..also Praying for the PEACE of Jerusalem.
    Count me in.

    Amen! 10
  96. Pray for the new administration; for the salvation of their souls, that they may truly come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We must remember with man it is impossible with God all things are possible. I pray all this in Jesus Christ name. Amen.

    Amen! 28
  97. We needed Pence to throw up a “Hail Mary” on 1/6 and force the Supreme Court to look at election fraud. Like Haman, Pence was too stupid to know the parade was not for him. We need real Gideons and Esthers. IMO, the Grand Old party is now the “Grand Old Pus***s” and will allow persecution of and violation of our First amendment.

    Amen! 6
  98. I am going to print out this article for myself to read as a continual reminder, and will take a copy for the 2 head ministers of the 2 churches that I go to. They may or may not like that. It doesn’t matter. THANKYOU for this article!!!

    Amen! 5
  99. Matthew 10:34-36
    King James Version
    34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

    35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

    36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. America’s foes are of its own household!!!

    I will pray in the Spirit and I will pray in the understanding! For this group of wicked revelers I must pray in the Spirit for GOD’S Perfect WILL to be done! You are right, we get the government we deserve! That is the one WE VOTED FOR! Not this one! They got this through devious means and it will not stand! Just read our Bible! Watch what GOD does to usurpers! Vengenance is Mine I will repay says GOD!!! Receive the Gift of GOD’S HOLY GHOST saints and lean not to your own understanding in anything! In all your ways acknowledge HIM and HE will direct your path! HE will also direct your prayers! Yes I
    do ask GOD to send laborers to the current administration so that they will receive JESUS and HIS Gospel and be spared from hell! I’ve prayed that since Ruth Bater Ginsburg passed away after being a major proponent of abortion! GOD nor I nor us want any to go to hell! I pray no weapon formed against us shall prosper in JESUS Name! Amen!

    Amen! 19
  100. Pres. Biden just signed multiple executive orders that would promote the Educational System to continue to indoctrinate children by pushing more social academics and propaganda. God, please forbid this from happening, I pray! Please protect innocent children from being exposed to the lies and garbage from this teaching. That’s why we’re seeing the riots, looting, and violence in the streets.

    Amen! 40
  101. I understand what you’re saying; however, we can’t blame-shift. We are autonomous individuals with free will. We have our own relationship with the Lord, and we make our own decisions. We all have to answer for our choices and action, ESPECIALLY leaders, but NOT ONLY leaders.

    Amen! 5
  102. There are many things God can teach us in the midst of unanswered prayer. Often in times of change and trial in my own life I’m comforted in the relationship that grows, the enriched time of prayer and meditation on His Word. The most precious gift is allowing His to teach me “we always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so the life of Jesus may be revealed in our body. For we who are always being given over to death for Jesus sake, so that His life may be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.” The beauty of Resurrection life is that others will see the face of Jesus, so may our disappointment lead us to know Him deeper, and ” fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” May all those who pray and intercede “fight the good fight, finish the race, and keep the faith.” As we fix our eyes upon Him may we be one with Him as the Son is one with the Father. He does reign and His Kingdom will come, it is His promise. Thank IFA for all your encouragement to keep on praying “for you who call on the LORD, give Him on rest till He establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.”

    Amen! 10
  103. This was more encouraging than anything I have read lately. Thank you. God is doing something great…I know, because He has done it in my heart and called me as an intercessor. He is taking American believers to a deeper relationship with Him than we have ever experienced. I believe we are about to experience spiritual blessing like never before, but that will come through trials. May we not shun the suffering, but count it all joy… Father, help us to be faithful to you no matter the cost. Amen.

    Amen! 12
  104. Did any of you get a mixed feeling when they saw president Biden during mass at the Catholic church? It felt awkward to me. I have a feeling that it was the most somber time for the church and the United States of America. I am not trying to put this all on Biden. I understand that we all fall short of God’s expectations. We do not deserve the glory. I am saying that I feel that it was more of a “goodbye”. Goodbye from “In God we trust”. Goodbye from believing that we are to fear God here in the USA.
    I feel that yesterday, the DNC cut all ties with God. That church service was not an embracement but a hug goodbye. The actions that he signed an order for after he took office seamed to show how the time in church effected his heart. Not one single bit.
    God bless America. I will never stop praying now. The left started something by chasing God out. They will reap what the sew.

    Amen! 15
    1. I too was greatly troubled by the religious aspects of the day’s events, including the prayers and singing of Amazing Grace. It reminded me of one of the last scenes of the Godfather in which a mob leader is in a cathedral at the christening of a child. The scene flashes between contemporaneous events where individuals are being assassinated in various places at the orders of this leader. In the ritual a priest asks, “Do you renounce Satan?” Cut to a clip of a rival gunned down in bed. Back to the church with the mafia leader replying: “I do renounce him.” Moving to another location, a man is shot in an elevator while back in the church the priest continues, “…and all of Satan’s works and pomps?” The response: “I do renounce them.”

      At the inauguration, Joe Biden places his hand on a Bible and swears by God to uphold the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic. It is grieving and galling to know that he stands on that platform due to a vast criminal and treasonous enterprise to commit voter fraud. This hypocrisy cannot be papered over by the singing of Amazing Grace as a theatrical attempt at national unity. Within this context, it seemed like sacrilege.

      Amen! 10
      1. We who believe and have been praying all along can see more than others who are blinded by the smoke screen. I can see that a person who was thrusted into power through evil deeds done by others, isn’t going to please God. I will have no part of this. I am preparing my life to change. I am going to stand up for God and refuse all of this. No, Joe can’t be a Christian as we are. He has to know what evil thrust him to that position and because of that, I am praying for his soul.
        But, he has not gotten away with anything. God has seen it all. It is up to us to work to reveal all the evil. We must pray. We must not stop working for the truth. We must make sure that the truth is revealed. We must try to forgive and move on. We must also prepare for anything that God is going to direct us to do.
        God save America.

        Amen! 7
  105. I wholeheartedly agree with what I read here. Please allow me to add a few thoughts… undoubtedly God is still in charge/contol; He is still on His throne, the foundations of which are righteousness and justice;He has not broken His covenant with America, though some of `us’ have; AND He is still working behind the scenes in ways we may not even begin to imagine.
    Let me do a very broad paraphrase of what Winston Churchill said when faced with the greatest enemy of that time….We must never give up, we must never give in. We will fight the enemies of the Cross, with humility, on our knees and on our beds, in our prayer closets and with other Believers, with the Word, with our intercession, and with Holy Spirit-led decrees/declarations. We will wage spiritual warfare with confidence, courage and boldness from the position of the victory Christ has already appropriated. We will do all for the honor and glory of God.
    “Through faith and patience we inherit the promise.”

    Amen! 23
  106. Yesterday was difficult, I could not fill myself with the false. I turned to songs to hear the Holy Spirit move through the Praise and Worship of our Great God.

    Lord continue to cut away those things from my heart that hinder my prayers for some I find hopelessly lost, evil or with deceitful hearts and plans.
    You alone are The Strength of my Heart and you alone will open to all your Love.
    ———————-
    I will sing Wonderful, merciful Saviour.

    Precious Redeemer and Friend
    Who would’ve thought that a Lamb could
    Rescue the souls of men
    Oh, You rescue the souls of men

    Counselor, Comforter, Keeper
    Spirit we long to embrace
    You offer hope when our hearts have
    Hopelessly lost our way
    Oh, we’ve hopelessly lost the way

    You are the One that we praise
    You are the One we adore
    You give the healing and grace
    Our hearts always hunger for
    Oh, our hearts always hunger for

    Almighty, infinite Father
    Faithfully loving Your own
    Here in our weakness You find us
    Falling before Your throne
    Oh, we’re falling before Your throne

    You are the One that we praise
    You are the One we adore
    You give the healing and grace
    Our hearts always hunger for
    Oh, our hearts always hunger for

    Amen! 16
  107. Interesting article, but why do you keep saying, the “Church” allowed 60 million abortions and less than half of the “Church” voted in this election? The problem isn’t the “Church” it’s the LEADERS of the Church. People follow Leaders. Period. If the sheep are in the wrong pasture whose fault is it? The sheep’s or the shepherd’s fault?
    If you want to change the direction of a cruise ship you talk to the guy in the wheelhouse. That’s when you get results; it does little good to try and convince the passengers to correct the course.
    Wouldn’t it be great if “ the most exciting outcome of this election” is the awakening of the slumbering clergy out of their passivity, who would then awaken their congregations, who would then awaken our nation! May it be so.

    Amen! 24
    1. I understand what you’re saying; however, we can’t blame-shift. We are autonomous individuals with free will. We have our own relationship with the Lord, and we make our own decisions. We all have to answer for our choices and action, ESPECIALLY leaders, but NOT ONLY leaders.

      Amen! 7
    2. Mr. Cristel,

      The real question may be is the Church willing to pay the price. Suppose IFA were to call a monthly 3 Day Fast? Would we all join it ?

      I can only remember the recent IFA called 3 Day Fast. How bad do we actually want to see God move?

      I have personally been walking with God for 50 of my 77 years. I have been fasting for many of the 50 years, on and off, for 3 days and for 7 days, up to 21 days. When I fasted weekly, I saw God move in a mighty way!

      How bad do want the daily presence of God? Bad enough to do without our food or not? By the way, the only Biblical Fast is doing without FOOD! I have heard some in the Church talk about “doing without TV”. Does that not sound like the very lazy Church or not ?

      If we want God’s results, we do things the Biblical Way! Let’s try it at least once per month.

      Any comment ?

      Amen! 10
        1. Whatever you elect to do is your own business. I simply elect to state the very clear Biblical examples that are given!

          I have never seen a medical condition so complicated that a person can not elect to do without even one bit of food. However, I have heard this argument before from people that simply ignore the specific scriptural examples that are given. What do people in 3rd world nations do which have no electric entertainment?

          I have found that such people often find themselves involved in very powerful moves of Almighty God. Some of the most impressive moves of God ever seen are experienced in some very poor countries, but they do not stay poor because God’s word works !

  108. YES God is working has been working will continue His work. He is not perplexed,taking a breather, casera sera. Not in the least. Our ministry is first to Him, hear and obey,rest on His promises,that what He said He will bring it to pass on His timetable not ours. So we STAND. We remain Thankful,watchful and celebrate His goodness. The devil and world systems do not understand a thankful,powerful in the PEACE of the Lord people and culture. In fact they are secretly fearful. That is why they have to continue intimidating those who are prepared in prayer,praise,and fully clothed in the culture of The Kingdom. They want us to back off and tremble in fear. But no the Kingdom
    is advancing. God is going to have His revival. Our hope is not in a person,party,or anything of this world. Our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus Christ and His Righteousness. Halleluliah.

    Amen! 13
  109. There’s another aspect of God’s sovereignty right now and that’s the fact that we are moving towards the rapture of the Church and the coming of the Antichrist. If our time is up in this present age of Grace, He will allow things to move towards the final 7 years. It’s prophetic and it WILL happen.

    Amen! 8
    1. The antichrist has been around for a few years now. We let the evil grow when we didn’t stop the one person that move to take prayer out of the schools. What did we do? I had three sons in school and now they are in last 50’s and middle 60’s. I did nothing about that. God is overdue to have mercy on me. We will see some dark days before He will close the door to come in. Look to God and seek to know Him more intimately as a loving Father that will see us through this time. Greater is He in me that he that’s in the world. Amen

      Amen! 7
  110. Praying for our nation’s government leaders is about using our personal relationship, influence with the Lord, and the spiritual authority granted to us on behalf of the elected, appointed, and even the fraudulent leaders who stole their positions. God is not mocked nor are we deceived. How do we pray? First we bind – We bind principalities and powers, who have played right into the hands and wrath of God. What they intended for evil, God intended for good, to raise up the Church of America in holiness and righteousness.

    Above all, we pray that God would be gloried in the United States of America, that His majesty, power, and holy righteousness would rule over our nation beginning with us the Church. We pray that we would stay connected to the Vine as our first priority, knowing that apart from Him we can do nothing. Without love we are nothing.

    We pray, Jesus reduce us to love to gently rebuke and restore those who have gone astray, knowing that we are all capable of the same errors. It’s time for us to put away childish things, anger tantrums, faithless actions that jeopardize the image and obstruct the will of God, and to grow up in Christ. The world is looking to us for hope. Hold fast to our faith. Prepare us as the pure and holy Bride of Christ, reflecting Your image.

    Help us to hold fast to Your Word. You have said in 2 Chronicles 20:15-22: “Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s… Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in His prophets and you will be successful…Give thanks to the Lord, for His love endures forever… As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the enemy who were invading them and they were defeated.” We shall have faith in You God and give thanks to You Lord and praise You for Your wondrous deeds, and so shall You set ambushes against our enemies.

    LORD humble the nation’s leaders. Not only are they accountable to the American people, they are ultimately accountable to You. We pray for our government leaders to repent and experience the salvation of their souls through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. While they are still in office, forbade them from doing any evil, let nothing be hidden from the public. Protect us, our children and the unborn from any harm from their hands, and protect our ally, Israel.

    We pray for the nation’s leaders to have the Fear of the LORD for it is the beginning of wisdom. We pray for the leaders to know what is right in God’s sight and do it. We pray that every person in authority learn to fear God and take care to live lives pleasing to Him who is above all.

    We pray for God’s will and pleasure to be done in America – to uphold and obey all that the Bible teaches, for truth to be revealed, for righteousness to be upheld, for holiness to be pursued, and for wickedness and all forms of ungodly character and values to be removed from our churches, our families, and from this nation.

    We pray that truth, godly values and morals will be divinely revealed and upheld in our nation, that all public servants will adhere to the truth – including what happened in the November 2020 elections addressing all evidence of voter fraud. That all those complicit and guilty of fraud will accept responsibility, be impeached for their complicity, and serve time for their crimes, and foreign nations be sanctioned for their interference. We pray that God will protect the nation from threats inside and out. We pray for all of God’s duly appointed leaders to take up their rightful positions and be faithful servants.

    We pray for the preservation of American’s rights and liberties, including our right to free speech and the right to free expression of faith. We pray that the government will uphold the Constitution of the United States of America, and adhere closely to the Word of God that it was based on. We pray for truth and integrity in our social media. For those who have spread lies to be judged and punished.

    We pray for the safety of the citizens, and for God to protect law enforcement, medical and healthcare workers, as well as first responders so they can do their tasks properly. We pray 2 Chronicles 7:14 that if we Your people, humble ourselves and pray, turn from our wicked ways and repent that You would heal our nation from from all forms of wickedness and from all plagues like COVID-19.

    We pray all these things in Jesus’ name.

    Amen! 21

  111. Amen. Intercessors must take the initiative and work to establish a viable prayer ministry within their respective Church congregations.

    We live in an on-line, “Chick-fil-A” culture of convenience and almost instant gratification. This is good for some things, like ordering food, but not when it comes to the practice of prayer. Here in America, the convenience culture permeates into our practice of Christianity—especially when it comes to prayer. I think we’ve become way too adept at giving prayer cursory treatment in our churches and in other public venues. Generally speaking, we seem to regard or treat it as a token formality. The evidence of this is how little time and effort the Body of Christ gives to earnest, persistent prayer. In an article in the September 2019 edition of Decision Magazine, R. T. Kendall writes: “Martin Luther (1483-1546) prayed two hours a day. John Wesley (1703-1791) prayed two hours a day. According to one poll, the average church leader in Britain and America prays four minutes a day. And we wonder why the church is powerless.” If the average Church Leader admits to what little time they spend in prayer, where do the masses of Christians actually stand on this?

    Deep down we know the depths of our own spiritual poverty when it comes to prayer. In truth, I think we, as Christians, too often view prayer rather as an obligation—perhaps even as a chore to be endured …or a box to be checked …or a square to be filled—rather than exercising our most powerful privilege. Why is that? The reasons for this is as numerous as there are individuals, but we are without excuse. In truth, we have elevated human effort and good works in growing God’s kingdom here on earth, at the expense of the great WORK of prayer and so have been lacking the Lord’s presence, power and anointing in our lives. This is to our great detriment and spiritual poverty. Jesus said we are the salt of the earth—if the salt looses its saltiness it would be good for nothing except to be tossed out and trampled underfoot of men. The two functions of salt is to provide flavor and—in the old world—for the preservation of food. The Church is to live in such a way as to help make the world “flavorful” for God and help preserve a level of societal decency. On the whole, the American Church has failed in this—the moral rot and spiritual decay in our society are self-evident and testify of our ineffectiveness to influence the culture. Indeed, the culture of corruption we now live in appears to influence the Church more than the other way around.

    Can any clear thinking Christian not agree that the Church here in America, at least to a large degree, lost its “saltiness ” . Are we now not being “trampled underfoot of men”? Once lost, can we regain our saltiness in society? The answer is YES! Scripture gives us a clear path forward. We can begin by applying 2 Chronicles 7:14. “If my people shall humble themselves and PRAY….” I know we attempted to accomplish this back in September with Franklin Graham’s DC prayer march and Jonathan Cahn’s “The Return” by walking in obedience to 2 Chronicles 7:14 and Joel 2:12-17 . A day of prayer and fasting and a “solemn assembly” was called for repentance and many responded—but it was only a day. And it was really only a remnant of a remnant. It’s not surprising…

    “When he [Jesus] came back to his disciples, he found them sound asleep. He said to Peter, “Can’t you stick it out with me a single hour? Stay alert; be in prayer so you don’t wander into temptation without even knowing you’re in danger. There is a part of you that is eager, ready for anything in God. But there’s another part that’s as lazy as an old dog sleeping by the fire (Matthew 26:40, 41-MSG).”

    If the Lord Jesus couldn’t get his disciples to pray when He needed them the most, what could be said of us today? As was in Jesus day, so it is in ours. What motivates people to be driven to their knees in earnest, persistent prayer is the same it’s always been across the generations—pain, soul-pain, brought on by various trials, tribulations and persecutions. “…for we have all gone astray like lost sheep; there is none who does good (Ps 14:1-4; 53:1b,3; Eccl 7:20), there is none who seeks God, not a one (Is 53:6a; 59:16; 64:7-8). The good news is God is about to do His part and allow the release of the “soul-pain”…will we be ready to do our part and respond accordingly?

    The history of revivals, renewals and great awakenings in the Church, was always connected to Believers unifying and praying for the Lord to work in that situation. And that’s what we need to happen in our day. Acts 2:42 says the Believers “…devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. They devoted themselves to prayers. Plural. This likely included various forms of prayer to include: petitions, supplications, thanksgivings, intercessions both in public and private and specific seasons of prayer. Prayer is key to aligning our hearts with the plans, purposes and will of God—not for getting God on our side! Joshua learned this lesson at Jericho. When the Commander of Heavens Armies appeared before Joshua, he asked the Angel whose side he was on—ours or our enemies? The Angel responded: “No; but I am the commander of the army of the Lord. Now I have come.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped and said to him, “What does my lord say to his servant?” And the commander of the Lord’s army said to Joshua, “Take off your sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so (Joshua 5:13-15).

    What is called for is EXTREME WORSHIP AND PERSISTENT, PERSEVERING, PREVAILING PRAYER. Hear what the “unjust judge said” (Luke 18:1-8). I’m drafting a proposal to present to my pastor to form a comprehensive prayer ministry within our Church. It is my duty to do so—the results are up to God. If your church congregation is lacking one of these, I hope you other intercessors will join me and do likewise.

    Does anyone hear that sound? It is the Sound of the Lord’s Shofar. TO WAR! TO WAR!

    Amen! 19
  112. I could not bring myself to watch the “inauguration”. I just could not watch something that was illegal and with full of hypocrisy. Plus the lying under oath when Biden was sworn in. Pure hypocrisy! I still trust in God and that He has a plan, whatever it is.

    Amen! 19
  113. Thank you for helping us get a positive perspective. I have a question about a statement you quote, “One of IFA’s founders said, “The Church gets the government we deserve.” This statement puts the full responsibility of the quality of government on the activities of the Church!”

    I am not sure I agree with this 100%. Rome was the government in the early church. They didn’t deserve it, it just was. China has a communist government. The church there is probably more like the early church than we in America. Do they deserve their government? I think rather, they have been found worthy to suffer for Jesus’ name. While we do have the responsibility to pray for our leaders, there will come a time when the Antichrist will reign on earth. Will that be a government the church deserves? I don’t think so. We live in a world that is controlled largely by the Evil One. He is the prince of the power of the air. We are on earth to advance God’s kingdom. While we have the privilege’s of voting and influencing our government, our greater focus should be advancing God’s kingdom by preaching the gospel and showing God’s love to the lost. Sometimes being embroiled in politics takes away our ability to do that. I welcome your response.

    Respectfully submitted.

    Amen! 14
    1. Maggie
      You are correct
      We are to ‘be about our father’s business ‘
      In season and out of season

      Being so wrapped up in a political candidate can be idolatry

      And, if you’ve watched or heard the media lately…

      However as Dr Stanley put it-
      God doesnt have favorites but He does have intimates

      Always remember Daniel 2:20-21

      May Gods named be praiaed forever and ever..I establish Kings and remove kings …
      🔯

      Amen! 5
  114. read 1st. kings chapter 1 verse 1 thru 27 about adonijah does this not look familiar. continue 1 king chapter 1; verse 28 thru 53. CAN WE NOT WAIT ON THE LORD WHO PARTED THE RED SEA, REMEMBER DANIEL SHADRACH MESHACH ABEDNEGO GIDEON JOSHUA etc. THIS isnt just about america its about god and the end time harvest not the tribulation time DO YOU NOT CONSIDER PEOPLE GETTING SAVED A BIG DEAL

    Amen! 5
  115. Every encouranging word is most precious. All of us in the trenches of prayer need this. We are a people called by God to stand for His ways and hold fast ; therefore let us not grow weary while well doing, for the Lord is with us and He will do a mighty work of which we have not known before. Hold fast, hold fast and don’t let the enemy tell you ; you can’t because the weapons of our warfare have just begun to take hold; we may not see it in the natural realm but God sees and He will do His mighty work like unto the days of old. Be strong, we have
    every benefit. . Our God is greater , our God is all knowing, our God loves at all times, our God never leaves nor forsakes us, just think about that!!!!! We have everything we need. Our God is a God of TRUETH and He will march thru this land/America with His mighty army, Hold fast , hold fast what God has shown you and don’t waver. Our hope is in the Lord who made heaven and earth. We are mighty in the hands of our God.!!!!!!!

    Amen! 11
  116. The above words and heart resonate deep within my spirit and soul. The army of prayer warriors and INTERCESSORS Is more than a mere battle cry in JANUARY 2021. It is the very heart of GOD… GOD’S SOVEREIGNTY & SALVATION are truly wonderful gifts from GOD. Our response can only be measured by our OBEDIENCE to this high calling “for such a time as this…” To quote scripture and a song of LEN MINK from the 1980’s “PUT ON THE GARMENT OF PRAISE FOR THE SPIRIT OF HEAVINESS, LIFT UP OUR VOICE TO GOD; PRAY IN THE SPIRIT AND WITH UNDERSTANDING, O MAGNIFY THE LORD. …”. I have been singing and praying this song in the spirit for months. The REVIVAL of prayer warriors is occurring and my prayers for each of us is; “hinds feet for high places” and to quote CALEB; “GIVE ME THE HIGH COUNTRY…” In JESUS NAME…. AMEN

    Amen! 11
  117. The thing is, the vast majority of Americans did vote for Trump & are rejecting the values of the left, we are now wise to their nefarious deeds under the banner of “social justice”. This choice was taken from us by criminal activity & now we have a criminal cabal in our government. This is where the military can step in & do their sworn duty to protect the constitution & the country. There is still hope. We need to pray for our brave military & the success of what they are about to do

    Amen! 17
  118. Thank you for this reminder and admonition. I would add ….Matthew 5:43-48
    [43]“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy.
    [44]But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!
    [45]In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike.
    [46]If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much.
    [47]If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that.
    [48]But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.

    Amen! 9
  119. While it’s tempting to want to shut off all news (for example today it has been shared Biden is displaying a bust of dictator Cesar Chavez in the Oval Office), cower in fear, and throw in the towel, we know that’s not what God has called us to do.

    I’ve been thinking recently about how plans in different areas of my life have been affected by this new administration. If Trump remained President, I had hope for the economic recovery, I felt emboldened to become engaged in ministry, I was considering a career change or at least becoming more visible in political conversations. I felt more assured and less uncertain for the times ahead, like there was time to still forge ahead and make changes, like the risk of making major life moves was mitigated.

    Following this result, I am instead scared, I’m tempted to give up hope, I am worried about the financial risks and potential economic collapse, I am thinking about not being able to leave the country if new policies are instated to prevent travel of conservatives or require vaccination to do so, I am thinking about having to leave the country in order to preserve my life and spread truth to other people, I am contemplating how technology can be used to track and hunt down dissenters, I am considering that I may never be able to chase my dreams as a young American, and realizing the risk of speaking up is greatly increased.

    It certainly will not be easier to be a Christian conservative now. But if I rely on external circumstances to decide what to do, am I living out where God has called me or surrendering the exercise of what freedoms we do have left? If my path forward that I was so enthused about before is now changing because of wicked leaders, how firmly did I believe in it?

    Lots to think and pray about. God bless America and fortify our intercessors.

    Amen! 19
  120. I confess that I put too much responsibility of righting the wrongs of this nation in the hands of elected officials. To me, God is basically saying, nope, that’s your job. Donald Trump showed us it can be done, despite immense resistance. Let’s step up, warriors, encourage one another for the battles ahead. Fight smart!

    Amen! 27
  121. There is a new angel atop the White House………..I am able to feel its presence………..and sense the threat level to the nation of this current presidency…………..

    Amen! 5
  122. Thank you for these words today, Dave. This is just what I needed to hear, as I have been processing discouragement over recent events and comments from family members who tell me I’ve become “radicalized” when I talk about the sin of abortion, suppression of speech etc. I am encouraged to continue to beg God for mercy and good governance, for His glory.

    Amen! 21
  123. Thank you for these reassuring words. I am one of those in mourning at the loss of our great president, replaced by one with strong ties to Communism.

    I grieve the corruption that brought about the new administration. I grieve that friends of mine shed tears of joy at yesterday’s inauguration of the new female vice-president, as if that is all that matters. I grieve over the mockery of our retiring president that I see on social media. But mostly I grieve that, from the perspective of the left, corruption and treachery has won.

    I know that God has a plan, and he will prevail in the end, but for now, it’s a sad day for our once-great republic. I’m looking more than ever for the return of Christ and His kingdom of truth and righteousness.

    Yes, many Christians have awakened and are turning to God as never before. Persecution has historically been a flame in the wind to spread Christianity in ways that are not possible without it. I thank God that he is and always will be the King of kings. I can hardly wait for the day when He rules supreme.

    Amen! 28
  124. Thank you for this encouragement! Yesterday was a very difficult day to say the least. I found myself saying, “well God, now what?” and “why?”. In his still small voice he said to me, “you stood with President Trump, will you stand with me?” In tears I responded, “Yes Lord, I will stand with you”. I think God is calling all of us to stand with him and not give up. In December I kept hearing the old hymn, the Battle Hymn Republic. “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord……..Glory, glory, Hallelujah, glory glory, Hallelujah, Glory, glory, Hallelujah, HIS TRUTH is marching on”!
    Be encouraged church. We will see the Glory of God!

    Amen! 45
    1. Glad that you posted this for I woke up one morning, not long ago, singing this very hymn. While I am disappointed in the election outcome and all the fraud,etc. I’ve been reminded that discouragement is a tool of the enemy and I have the choice to turn, follow and keep my eyes on the Lord. He’s working and I am learning to trust Him in a new way; am also sensing a new boldness in my walk with the Lord while aiming to be a peacemaker.

      Amen! 11
    2. Pray for our brave military. They can step in now. There’s a reason battle hymn of the republic has been going through your head. God will protect America he always has against all odds

      Amen! 6
  125. I am not sure what is happening here, but God did not throw away Moses after 4 years of leading His people in the desert, and elect someone who does not regard Him, nor His laws. Moses did not quit and neither has the Lord, and neither is our true President Donald J. Trump. We are the Lords true army, yes our battle belongs to Him, and His army is on their knees. Pray for our true President to have the Lord’s courage and strength to with stand the onslaught of lies, and to continue to have the Lords hope that this is turning around for Jesus sake. God never takes away that which is right and replaces it with someone who is totally wrong, this is not our Lord’s character nor His purpose for His children. Read Exodus 14 to see the true nature of our loving Father God. 14:25 He took off of their chariots wheels, what more do we need? I love our Father God.

    Amen! 32
    1. And Pharoah’s army was drowned in the red sea! GOD will take care of us! Pray for this new illegitimate government group saints because “it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of GOD!” And they surely will unless they repent and get saved!

      Amen! 3
  126. Are we giving up on Gods work and power that HE did through and in the Trump Administration? If we believe God appointed Trump as a “Cyrus”–and spent 4 years of exposing lies, protecting lives and protecting freedom of speech and our religious freedom–then why throw in the towel now and accept this new Jezebel administration? Gods ways are much higher than our ways and His timing is not based on our calendars–His Timing is based on Events. Just because we watched an illegitimate Inauguration, doesn’t mean God is finished yet. We walk by Faith not By Sight. Lets keep trusting HE will rescue us from this wicked administration.

    Amen! 41
    1. I, too, am confused and saddened by how the election turned out. But had Trump won, the war against him would have continued even more viciously. Had Trump won, all of this evil and corruption would not have been shown, much more pervasive and deep than I think many of us suspected or knew. Praise God that He knows what is best for us and our land.

      Amen! 12
      1. Trump did win by a landslide. The overwhelming evidence of voter fraud has never been examined by a single court. That is why I pray for truth and justice to be manifest by the power of God.

        Amen! 4
    2. I absolutely refuse to call yesterday’s disastrous fiasco an “inauguration”. It was an installation of an illegitimate regime. Period. Just like in a Banana Republic … looked just like a Banana republic also in the picture I saw of the thousands and thousands of Soldiers and maybe 2,000 max at the Installation. But he got 80 million votes. Yeah.

      Amen! 6
    3. I think Daniel and his friends stood against an ungodly dictate, and so should we. I do not consent to having any of my hard-earned money taken from me and given to Planned (un)Parenthood, or taken to fund unjust wars overseas, or stolen to bail out either locked down states or nations. I agree entirely with you on this being an Ahab/Jezebel administration as well, especially since they are showing their cards clearly on their definition of unity.
      https://www.wnd.com/2021/01/tulsi-gabbard-asks-joe-biden-declared-martial-law/
      Heavenly Father, please deliver us from the hands of the statists!

  127. Thanks for the reminder to think on those things which are “true, noble and righteous…..” I have been distracted and disappointed with the external circumstances of late.

    Amen! 16
  128. Biden is telling us to “unify”. “Unify” means comply! Comply to and support abortion, LBGTQ, and this illegal election. Evil is the absence of God. God has been removed from schools, court rooms and many other places. When things are removed it is not an empty space and is filled with something else.
    “We are more than conquerors”! The fight has just begun! Put on the full armor of God! We may have lost the battle but as you know the war is already won! Continue the fight, teach your children, grand children, your friends that Jesus is King! God gave us the the tools necessary to do the work but He won’t do the work for us.

    Amen! 46
    1. Yes and amen. Seeing as hell President Trump honored Israel and favored pro life, I cannot see that this present circumstance will stand. God keeps his promises and he blesses those who bless Israel and his Word.

      Amen! 30
  129. First, does the sovereignty of God relieve us of our civic duty? Not in the slightest. The same responsibility Adam had to dress and KEEP the garden. We the church have a responsibility to dress and KEEP the Constitution and its inalienable rights, as Ben Franklin responded when asked, what have you given us?–A constitution–If you can KEEP it!
    This election of Biden is an unmitigated disaster and and we the church must take FULL responsibility for it. I don’t believe we have comprehended what this portends for our lives going forward. It will be a communist purge not unlike Stalin or Mao. If you haven’t noticed, these people are filled with rabid hate and vengeance. Up until now we have escaped persecution. ///Tomorrow???
    My prayer is to appeal for mercy from heaven that Donald Trump has given the military insurrection powers to arrest the traitors.

    Amen! 27
    1. I understand and agree, however, they need to show both wisdom and self-control in how it is done. We, first of all, should pray that it is done in a manner that respects the rule of law and the inalienable rights we as God’s image-bearers hold. We also need to pray that the American people will hear the evidence for fraud and understand why what is being done is just. Frankly, it should also to some degree be done with bi-partisan support. Maybe the blue-dog democrats (like Tulsi Gabbard)
      https://www.wnd.com/2021/01/tulsi-gabbard-big-tech-money-platforms-still-immunity/ along with the pro-life ones in both the House and the Senate (Like Culler, McAdams, Manchin, and Casey) should endorse it after hearing the case.

  130. I am writing to encourage us all as Psalm 24 does.
    Despite what is happening today, let’s remember that “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world,and they that dwell therein.” (24:1)
    We Intercessors are the beacons of hope, the remnants to a discouraged and hope less world world. Thus “This is the generation of them that seek Him,that seek they face, O Jacob. Salah. Psalm 24:6
    We should never be discouraged but be strong as the LORD’S GENERALS. Bless the LORD Saints.

    Amen! 29
  131. Dave, your words are exactly the encouragement I needed. You and IFA are a blessing to all Intercessors. I am not giving up and will continue to pray and stand for righteousness. I am blessed to have friends who are Intercessors. 6-7 women meet weekly in the home of a 97 year old Intercessor who was born in Poland! She has lived for such a time as this and our group is grateful for her. Blessings on you and IFA!!

    Amen! 21
  132. Amen! Excellent my brother Dave. The Church in America has failed God in standing for truth, righteousness,
    and God’s word. We have been lazy, slothful and easily intimidated the the lies and deceptions of darkness. We have failed to be the light and salt Christ called us to be. Arise, O Saints, to your calling!

    Amen! 22
    1. Brethren, It is clear, He answered “yes” in 2016 and “no” in 2020! Did not Jeremiah prophesy to the children of Israel, “Do not resist, this is Me!” His end time plan is unfolding. It is the NAR teachings that are confusing the body. I was around for Derek Prince’s input in IFA, Lance Lambert’s input in IFA, they would never agree with your theology today! We pray you will reconsider where you are leading people. TRUE INTERCESSION is praying HIS WILL, we only agree with it! God IS sovereign, we did pray, He said “No, I have something better!” HE CAN BE TRUSTED!

      Amen! 8
  133. Habakkuk 3
    LORD, I have heard of Your fame; I stand in awe of Your deeds, O LORD. Renew them in our day, in our time, make them known; in wrath remember mercy.. . Yet I will wait patiently . . .The Sovereign LORD is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to go on the heights.

    Amen! 20
  134. God is NOT in control. God put us in control. He is in charge. He gave us free will. The difference is vital.Passivity is the disease of the western church.
    As an intercessor, I realize I am told to pray for our elected leaders. For this new batch I only pray six words, ” I pray God’s best for them.”
    My focus is to be like David in the wilderness, not at war with Saul, but being led to stay one step ahead of him, until God fulfills the words of promise I know He is bringing to pass.

    Amen! 11
  135. Thank you, I agree the rise of intercessory activists is the start of powerful spiritual warfare. I never think my prayers are not heard or answered, we fight the good fight until the end for we are committed to His cause. It’s not about me, I surrender to Jesus and not the world, I will continue no matter what I SEE, because of faith in Jesus Christ. Amen

    Amen! 19
  136. We cannot give up! The Lord IS sovereign and the sovereign One has heard our prayers! He is on the move. What would have happened if Moses had given up as the army advanced behind them at the Red Sea? All looked lost but God showed up in a way that gave Him all the glory!
    Think of how the apostles felt after their Messiah died! What? The long awaited King didn’t set up His kingdom? They most likely mourned and wept and panicked and became angry. . We know they hid. But He was not done and He isn’t done here. I know that He will not allow Joe Biden to stand as president. He has spoken to too many of us. His promises are yes and amen. Stand and fight on your knees. Battle up warriors! This battle is not done.
    All praise and glory to our King Jesus! The Lord of hosts is His name!!!

    Amen! 34
  137. I’m Catholic and I’m one of those people who have given up hope since the election. Donald Trump is far from holy, but I believe that he always tried to do what is right for the American people. I don’t understand why God has allowed the new and evil administration to take control of the lives of those very people who worship and believe in him, and who will also deny our religious freedom. Are we now to go in hiding to worship? I’ve heard about religious persecution in Arab countries but I never thought it would happen here. Is God testing us?

    Amen! 5
    1. Don’t give up! Stand in faith and look to God, not the circumstances. Avoid the news at all costs- they are meant to discourage us. Demonically influenced disinformation and gaslighting. We are strong and in Christ.

      Amen! 22
    2. Run with endurance the race set before you. Keeping your eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith! Hebrews 12 we must stand on the promises of God, not on our circumstances. When Peter looked at the raging waves he began to sink. When he put his eyes back on Jesus and took His hand he was safe. Keep praying! Battle up! The victory has already been won. We will see Trump back in the White House. This coupe will never stand. The Lord of hosts is with us!

      Amen! 10
  138. Thank you. I really needed that right now. My heart is sad knowing the price that will be paid for what has happened. I have tried to help by collecting items for Heartbeat for 20 years now at my church. I keep praying that we will see the end and when I thought that we may finally see it, it disappeared again. I really need these words to keep me going. Thank you again for these words right now. May God Bless!

    Amen! 15
  139. I believe the Lord will remove Biden and put Trump back in. Millions are still praying this. Lord, for Your name’s sake, Lord for the sake of the harvest, Lord in Your mercy, move now. American shall be saved by God! Time of suddenlies and miracles!!! Come Lord!! Woo Hoo

    Amen! 22
  140. Dave, I strongly feel that this is no time to give up! We, as Christians need to step up to the plate more than ever. We need to be praying for our nation, our government, and those who are in office. We need to put personal feelings and biases aside. It is refreshing to know that intercessory activism has been increasing. Perhaps, persecution will stir the Church in America out of its lack of unity and its complacency. Let’s hope so. I bind the familiar spirits that have influence over our government. I loose a spirit of living by biblical principals over our government, and over the Biden administration. Please guide and direct their decisions and actions, Lord Jesus. Amen.

    Amen! 40
  141. We have two Presidents, one legally chosen by the people and one illegally seated because the corruption has been tolerated and even entered the “church”. Whining about a fallen world hasn’t revealed the gospel of Jesus Christ. Perception of cookie cutter leaders has once again superseded true discernment. The IDOLATRY occupies again a position of authority. WE DO valiantly with our God: it is He who will tread down our foes
    It’s time to continually tip the bowls. Father in the name of Jesus I declared the scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land you have allotted to the righteous for the righteous might begin to do evil. Forgive us Lord for grieving your heart and by the power of Holy Spirit choices be made to turn to you and be transformed. In and through Jesus

    Amen! 39
  142. I am still praying for an awakening of the Church. I am among the discouraged also, but I still prayerfully think that God isn’t finished with us quite yet. This could be a severe test of our trust and I am determined to continue to lift up this nation up in prayer and our leaders, as hard as it will be. I still pray that God’s will be done, He can always be trusted. He says, I am a refuge in times of trouble. Let’s take refuge in Him.

    Amen! 42
  143. Mr. Dave Kubal, one of my mentors on how to pray, this article is so true. I feel no condemnation, but I have repented over my life time of errors, and it has been a lot to repent about. But Yeshua is hearing every prayer and He washes us clean everytime we repent and listen and obey Holy Spirit. I have tweeted and shared and will hang on to this very appropriate and timely Word from God for such a time as this! Thank you for you and your wife’s diligence and hard work in carrying out this much needed ministry this day. May God bless you and all your family for your leadership and obedience!
    In Jesus’ Name, Amen and Hallelujah!!!

    Amen! 25
  144. I have a question I hope someone can answer. If life and death are in the power of the tongue, and proclaiming truth is so important, why should we speak the words president Joe Biden when in fact we believe the election was fraudulent enough to seriously question whether he was truly voted in? To continually speak the word president before his name only empowers a lie. I for one refuse to refer to him as president Biden until I am completely satisfied that the 2020 election was not fraudulent and he truly won. Am I not thinking properly about this?

    Amen! 13
    1. I agree, I believe President Biden was fraudulently put in. Unfortunately, the enemy is alive and well on planet earth. Somehow, he succeeded in getting Congress to vote in President Biden. Maybe not the will of the people, but the law of the land, once Congress has decided, it’s law. So by this you can call him President. There were many forces at work to bring this about. So many are blind to the truth. It doesn’t make sense to them and they feel they are right. Man makes plans, but the Lord directs his paths. I also agree that God is going to use this to strengthen His church, purify His people, and bring a great revival. Wait and see what God has prepared for those who love Him. We don’t need to be afraid, we need to be ready.

  145. Thank You, God, for raising up an intercessor army. May we all be infused with faith and hope- despite what is happening in the natural. GOD IS NOT FINISHED!! It is His timeline, but HE WILL DEAL WITH THE FRAUD, for HE IS A GOD OF JUSTICE!!

    Amen! 28
  146. Good fundamental word David.

    Each Biblical believer must not, in any way, surrender to evil !

    Each believer must remain faithful to The Lord God Almighty and know exactly what Word of God clearly teaches. We shall not be overcome with evil.

    Remember Abraham as he lived with the evil in Sodom & Gomorrah – if it came to just Abraham, God said he would save Abraham and
    his interest just for ONE “Right Living” Man!

    Amen! 18
    1. Further to my comment – Biblically, it is somewhat clear, that God stated that he would save the cities (Sodom & Gomorrah) if he could find 10 righteous men; however, God apparently saved Lot and his family, for Abraham’s sake, as Lot was the only man, being just ONE, who met the conditions.

      Remember, God only said He would only save it for 10. For some reason, God appears to have made an exception, probably for Abraham. This where the Mercy of God comes into play, to the favor of Lot.

      We should never presume on God, but leave it to Him alone if He elects to cut us some slack! Regarding the United States, let us hope that God will cut us some slack as well.

      Amen! 7
  147. Which “nation” “inaugurated” this man, Biden? Was that a constitutional action? Can Biden rightfully and legally even be called president? Isn’t that lending credence to an illigitimate, illegel usurper? We can pray for God’s will to be done, but if we are unwilling to align ourselves with that will, then we have a serious conflict. God help us to be true!!

    Amen! 22
  148. Thank you for these words. I am among the discouraged, but am determined to continue to lift my nation up to the Creator of all things. I’m praying for continued awakening of the Church from its slumber and a renewed fresh fire in my heart to press into His heart for the USA

    Amen! 28
  149. Why do so many on here now choose to support Biden and his comrades when they executed a po0litical coup the likes this country has never seen? AND, we already clearly know what they support and are working towards — continued abortion, open borders, the global economy. Yes, these things are going to happen as we know from the Bible. But these people are evil — and all of you thought so until Biden was inaugurated. Now we want to pray that they will make good decisions for us while they are in office? No, I think not.

    Amen! 21
    1. Tim – You ask a great question. Maybe a point of clarity is the difference between on biblical mandate (1 Tim 2) to pray for those in authority and supporting. Supporting and praying for are two different things. Believers in Christ would not support ungodly values, rather we pray for the conviction and guidance of God for them.

      Appreciate your comment.

      Amen! 23
    2. Not supporting this evil antichrist government nor the evil rhinos. Praying for Jesus’ kingdom and will to be done. They will not be convicted or guided by Jesus so we need The Lord of Angel Armies to do His Will on them whatever that may be. His kingdom and will to be upon His true uncompromising Bride as well.

      Amen! 5
  150. Father I pray that today these people with in this forum hear your truth. Open there eyes lord to see that the corporation USA has been dissolved and evil broken over our nation. Once again we are a republic, one nation under God. DC is not part of our nation but a foreign country held and operated by evil. Show your church that we no longer have to bow to them. They are illegitimate. We the people are only ruled by our creator. That God is the creator and there is no other. Praise the Lord. Open their eyes to see that we have crossed over and this land is flowing with milk and honey. Show them they do not have to go back to Egypt, that we are free. Amen

    Amen! 28
  151. So, the church has allowed (like) the Johnson amendment to silence the church. Which allowed Christians to think it was okay to go to church; go to work, & do it all over again the next week. So we have thousands of sermons in us & very little walk to show for it. I think basic training is over, now is the time to apply to the battlefield the light in us. Whether we are ready or not. the enemy is at the door. I think our churches have become like clubhouses/entertainment centers. I was in the Army I know what comes after basic training & AIT. The battle/warfare, why not I was trained.

    Amen! 34
  152. Thank You !!!
    Last night at our prayer service, our pastor emphasized that we must prepare for the increased persecution of the CHURCH and the curbing of our religious freedoms. He said that this should only make us stronger. He called upon us to examine our faith and then to stand in the knowledge that we are never alone. Jesus said that HE will never leave us nor forsake us.
    GOD’S PROMISES ARE TRUE AND FOREVER ! AMEN

    Amen! 41
  153. Its interesting that the football game this weekend is the patriots against the steelers just food for thought..Lord we are with you.. Let all evil be exposed and dealt with. The church is supposed to be a mighty army.. Time to rise up and take the territory..

    Amen! 32
  154. Blessed be God in heaven and on earth. God meant for us to experience heaven on earth. The Eucharist is the key. Prayer before the Eucharist is very powerful. GOD SPEAKS TO YOU IN THOSE QUIET MOMENTS🙏Have faith. We are in the palm of His hand.

    Amen! 8
  155. Come on ekklesia! Take your stand! Let us not be wimpy. Rejoice in Him who is on His throne. Let us praise Him who has all things in His hand. He is a God above all gods and certainly in control with His plan.

    I know that I know that I know this is NOT OVER.

    We are privileged to be in these exciting if scary times. Our God is truth and truth will come out and corruption, lies and deceit will be exposed.

    We do not look to man but to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Hallelujah!!

    Amen! 50
  156. Lord praise your name.

    Maricopa county has finally agreed to the election audit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jz_-YBPx7DE&feature=youtu.be

    Lord we ask that you will show the way through the wilderness. Lord will you please guide us how to pray. We continue to pray for your justice to be revealed. We continue to pray for Pennsylvania case in the Supreme Court. We continue to pray for full disclosure of the dominion machines in Antrim county in the court case. Lord we pray for the appeal from the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Lord we pray for righteousness in the Supreme Court. We are saddened that Sidney Powell withdrew the Georgia case from the Supreme Court on the grounds that it is moot.

    Lord we do not want wishful thinking, we only want truth as to what happened during the November 3 election. We still have questions.

    Lord we ask that you will protect your people in these days of the new administration. We continue to pray for restraint of unrighteousness in government. Lord we pray for the salvation of Joe Biden and his family and Kamala Harris and her family. We pray for those musical performers who have sold their souls to the enemy for fame, that Lord you will shake them and show them that they need Jesus as Lord of their lives.

    Above all we pray for unity in the body of Christ and discernment of these days. Lord we are called to be intercessors and the body of Christ. We are to discern what you are saying Lord through your word and by the power of the Holy Spirit regardless of our political persuasion. You have told us to pray for those in authority.

    Have mercy on your people Lord at this time. Thank you that you will remove all idols from the church so that only Jesus remains.

    In Jesus name.

    Amen

    Amen! 58
      1. Pam, the Board of Supervisors refused to abide by the subpoena and now agreement has been reached. I am rejoicing for this agreement. I believe that Psalm 18 is the scripture for this particular situation, in particular Psalm 18 v 26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.

        Maricopa board of supervisors were froward.

        Lord please expose what is going on in Maricopa county and the election audit and what is going on behind the scenes for your glory. We will not place our trust in man, only you Lord. We believe Lord that you will deal with what is going on. Hallelujah.

        Thank you Lord.

        Amen! 14
  157. Ps.68v1. Let God arise let his enemies be scattered let those who hate him flee before him as smoke is driven away you drive them away.. As wax melts before the fire so may the wicked perish before God..God is angry with the wicked every day..so are we in agreement with Him.. Stretch forth your hand O Lord and execute vengeance on the enemy..be Glorified as the wicked fall from their pedestal..Only You Lord are to be on the thrown..

    Amen! 36
  158. You reap what you sow. Decade after decade ‘the church’ in USA followed gimmick after gimmick, prosperity cult after prosperity cult and became a joke to the rest of America. Now judgement has come. But you are not prepared because you thought you would be raptured already. At least half of those 75 million trump voters will have to pray very hard and be politically active to turn this around. The best prayer for now… for God to divide their tongues so the enemies of God destroy each other and more people realise by mid terms the real nature of those ruling. Lord divide their tongues and turn them against rach other… just like in the future invasion of Israel

    Amen! 22
  159. I don’t think this is over. I think this battle is still in motion. The prophets did not get it wrong Donald Trump is the legal President of the United States. We have no obligation as Christians to pray for someone who illegally stole an election and used fear through a rigged pandemic to weaken the people of God. He broke the law and violated our Constitution. Why would God tells us to support unrighteousness? God does not work that way. He is a God of justice, these are wicked People who have no fear of God. He is clear in His word that the wicked will be destroyed and cut off. As Christian sometimes being on God’s side means we have to be uncomfortable. There are too many prophetic words and saints praying globally for this thing to be done. There are no prophetic words about Biden being president. This was stolen just like Adonijah (1 Kings) tried to steal the throne from Solomon. While Adonijah was being inaugurated God was anointing Solomon. We are under no Biblical obligation to pray for a liar and a thief. This is criminal. God loved Judas but he stilled paid the price and suffered the consequences of betraying Jesus.

    Google #witchthevote. No Witch is going to out pray me. Our Biblical response is to not concede but trust God for what He said and continue to war with the Prophetic word. The Bible is our final authority and there is no Biblical support for a prophet apologizing for what God said. This is Satan trying to advance his wicked agenda early. This is definitely a wheat and tare moment. Are we trying to preserve our platforms and save our little ministries or do we love not our lives unto death? God has the final say and He has spoken and does not change. They thought Jesus was dead too.

    Amen! 32
    1. Amen! Yvonne you hit the nail on the head. We pray for their souls to be saved. I agree why would we side with evil and unrighteousness?How do you muster up faith to pray for that which is evil especially when you know it. God does not have to use Thiery to show His power. His power will be shown through the righteous prayers of His saints that His will, not the will of the leftists, will be done in this nation. Where is our faith to believe we heard what God spoke through the many. Just as it fueled us to pray and war for what was spoken, pick yourself up out of the dump of despair and believe what everybody has said and that is ‘God is in control.’ And if He is indeed in control, He will definitely not lay down and allow the enemy to take from us His promise, if we stay in faith! It is not over! Why give up? None of this corruption would have been known had this not happen. We don’t understand the plans and ways of God. So let’s not accuse Him of not answering our prayers. We have been praying and decreeing that everything hidden would come to light! Now that it is we are ready to lay down and accept. I say arise for our light has come and behold meaning look and see the gross darkness on the people who do not want God in this nation!

      Amen! 14
