I Prayed have prayed
Lord God, we pray for the repentance of New York!

During the Tuesday, July 13, 2021 IFA Pray with Others Live webcast, we will be praying over the top news and especially focusing on some key issues in New York. Recently, a prophetic word came forth for New York City. We share it here. IFA seeks the Lord for discernment in selecting all of the information we post, and especially when sharing prophetic words. We encourage you to ask the Lord whether and how prophetic words may apply to you personally or to the Body, as well as how to pray. Every prophetic word is to be tested by each believer, in accordance with 1 Jn 4; 1 Thes 5:1; and Acts 17:11. 

What to do? Pray for repentance of this city – join your prayer to those who already seek Me about these sins – and there are many (who seek Him).

Pray for the protection of the faithful/remnant as judgment occurs.

Worship with intensity – yes- personal and corporate worship – Yes, at services and special times of corporate worship and praise.

Prepare for the Harvest – Are you ready as My church to catch, to glean? Reflect on what is needed for those I draw to this body of believers.

What are the steps for those who come questioning about Me and if I am the answer they seek?

No doubt about this Harvest! I am, even now, preparing My holy messengers to come to that city and call people out – Some will find this faithful body and need guidance toward Me – Prepare what you will do! Ready yourselves both spiritually and practically.

Amen & Amen.


IFA intercessor Joyce Swingle (a resident of New York City), in reflecting upon this word, shared this with us, “The protection prayer reminded me of the prayer given prior to 9/11.  So many churches in the NYC area were given specific prayers for aspects of that event that mitigated it in great measure.  My team was praying for protection for then-President G. W. Bush and that plane was the one that crashed in PA, as many of us remember. Times Square Church was praying 24/7 and brought all its missionaries home a month before 9/11.  They had discerned a terrible event to come.  On 9/10, they felt called to make more than 1,000 PB&J sandwiches…they didn’t know why but did it. These sandwiches fed the rescue-workers who survived!”

Oh Abba! Nothing is too hard for you! We pray the precious blood of Jesus over New York City. We declare you are the Lord of hosts, The Lord of angel armies. Send forth your warring angels in chariots of fire with flaming swords to destroy every enemy preparing to attack this city and its people. Place a seal on the head of each of those who are called by your name and every innocent person and also for your people Israel, the Jews in this city. Prepare them for whatever lies ahead. Secure the city. Protect. Protect. Protect. We tear down every idol of Baal, Ashtoreth, Dagan, Molech, golden calves and bulls, and any other unnamed idol in Jesus name! You have no authority over New York City! We claim New York City as holy before the LORD. A city in a hill whose light shines brightly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are seated in heavenly places along with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We send forth the warring angels to rid New York City of these idols and all evil. Protect NYC against any terrorist attacked. Foil the plan of the enemy. Go forth and slay principalities, spiritual darkness and wickedness in high places. Bring honor and glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to our Father in heaven. LORD, send the spirit of revival to New York City. May it be a city on a hill who is light never goes out day or night. Bring the dry bones of the church together, put in the inner workings, sinew, flesh and skin upon them and breathe your breath and to them and raise them up to be a mighty army. Have mercy, Abba. Have mercy. Show yourself strong. You are our only hope. You are a Way maker, Miracle Worker, Promise Keeper, Light in the darkness, that is who you are! We worship you! We worship you! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Touch every heart. In Jesus name we pray, amen and amen.

Father, we pray for the healing and salvation of NewYork and our whole our nation. We pray for unity in the church with agreement in prayer and fasting. We pray for revelation and the understanding of Your will so that we obey You always.
We pray for individual and corporate repentance and cleansing from all our national sins (ingratitude, idolatry, racism, lies, slavery, abortion, and immorality).
We pray for grace to forgive one another. We pray for the Holy Spirit who knows what needs to happen for breakthrough to occur in all situations to give us the ability to hear and understand His strategic instructions on how to warfare, pull down all strongholds of wickedness and strip them from all their evil powers. Then will we experience restoration of our nation’s godly inheritance with each person and family honoring You Lord. We pray for the USA to be one nation under Your authority and protection. We pray for the exposure of all corruption, fraud land exploitation, and for the judgement of all criminals with mercy granted for their repentance. We pray for the removal of all evil leaders and the appointment of the righteous. We pray for the inauguration of our true President, Donald J. Trump’s to his 2nd term and for a subservient godly government from which Your grace overflows to all nations, as we prepare the way for Israel to receive their Messiah and to fulfill their destiny as the leader of all nations under Christ. We decree this prayer as already established over our nation, the world, and over Israel in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Prophet /Pastor Hank Kunnaman said on July 4th at the Regeneration Nashville service that God said that the enemy is planing a terror attack against the US but that if we would pray –that God said he would be listening to us –and that iIF we would pray , then God would intervene to stop it .

Come let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before the Lord our God, our Maker.
Amen and Hallelujah! May His Grace, in the form of the Holy Spirit, fall down like rain on the City and on our country!

We visited NYC in 2010. While driving towards the city, I looked out over the city and began to weep. I felt the LORD was going to move in NYC. I felt a drawing to the city. When I was 15, I had lived just over the river in Red Bank, NJ. The city was so different post 911. Never give up praying.

Lord Jesus, I pray for New York City. Holy Spirit, intensify your wooing to those who need you, from the homeless on the streets to the highest executives in the media and finance centers. Lord, please send a renewed spirit of prayer among Your people across our land, but especially in New York. Lord, we cannot fathom the revival that You are eager to send. Please help us to pray as we should. Fill us with Holy boldness to speak of Your Love and Compassion to everyone we contact. I pray also for elected officials across the United States. Turn them to You, O Lord. I Pray that they will turn their hearts to serve YOU, Lord and to be eager to obey Your Word in every act, every vote. Amen.

Intercession for NYC and whole nation of paramount importance. And not discounting the importance of prayer prior to 9/11, but do have a comment regarding the accuracy of a statement in the article:
“My team was praying for protection for then-President G. W. Bush and that plane was the one that crashed in PA, as many of us remembe”.
Did not all the passengers and crew on that plane die? G.W.Bush remained president through 2 terms ending in 2009.

    July 13, 2021

    Bobi, wasn’t it thought that the plane which went down in PA was headed to the White House? So, in that way, President Bush was protected.
    Rejoice in the Lord always!

I listen to David Wilkerson talk about what happened at his church before 911. The Pastors walked up on the stage about two weeks before 911 and were slain in the spirit. The congregation stopped everything and started weeping.

From there, fasting, prayer were the only things on the agenda. Everything was cancelled. They knew something bad was coming, but didn’t know when. They made all those sandwiches and pooled together 2millon dollars.

911 hit, not one member of that congregation was harmed! All were safe, 1/2 the church worked in the towers. The 2 million they donated to the Fire Dept and Police Dept.

Goshen Goshen…..is what I’m hearing for Gods people right now! God will provide and warn his beloved children of danger and provide protection.

He is a good Father! 🙌🏻💞🔥

As things accelerate in judgment, the Lord stressed to me to PRAY FOR THOSE WHO PERSECUTE THE CHURCH because they are working overtime to rush to the Lake of Fire as their eternal destination. Christ died for every one of their sins, past, present, future. So standing in the gap of Ezekiel 22:30 at the Hebrews 4:16 throne of grace and mercy along with Jesus of Hebrews 7:25 and Holy Spirit of Romans 8:26-27, I appropriate the perfect blood sacrifice of Jesus on the altar of the Cross for each of them. I ask Father to so strongly draw each of them to Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord that each one’s name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life forever. I ask for His gifts of repentance, and much more than enough grace to escape the eternal slavery of sin. I ask Holy Spirit to convict and Jesus to relentlessly pursue until each surrenders, repents and obeys Him as their personal Savior and Lord. I pray in Jesus’ name, standing on 1 John 5:14-15 and Matthew 7:7-8. No one is praying for them but cursing them. They are sinners in the hands of an angry God with no Jonathan Edwards to warn them. Don’t pray to maintain a lifestyle. concentrate on salvation. Judgment is sure.

I was recently in NYC. I had read only a few weeks before the IFA article on Chimeras. As I walked down 5th Ave I looked and saw a large statue erected at Rockefeller Center. It was hideous and a cross between human and animal. I went to read the plaque and it was from “the chimera series.” I knew in my spirit this was not pleasing to God. I have been led to pray for a year now for the Lord to bring down all idols and anything that is erected against God and His purposes and plans. So when I saw this I knew it was another one of those. At one time there was a statue to Baal in Central Park.

Lord, God Almighty, we repent for these horrible idols erected throughout our nation against You and Your ways. Father forgive us and our nation and have mercy on Your people. I declare every stronghold and idol operating in NY, Georgia, and our nation against the Lord be broken and destroyed turned to dust by the finger of Almighty God all to the glory of the One True Living God Almighty in Jesus Name. All of the earth and nations belong to You Jesus given to You by the Father. Come Lord Jesus, You have the victory, You have already defeated satan. He is a spoiled and defeated foe. So we say tear down every statue, monument, idol erected against You and Your kingdom in Jesus Mighty Name. Have mercy on Your people Lord and move them to safety as You deal with the flood of the enemy’s attempt to steel, kill, and destroy Your people. Jesus, we receive Your life and Your abundance. Come Lord Jesus come!!

    “I declare every stronghold and idol operating in NY, Georgia, and our nation against the Lord be broken and destroyed turned to dust by the finger of Almighty God all to the glory of the One True Living God Almighty in Jesus Name.” Amen to this purposeful and powerful prayer Valerie, Amen!
