Prophetic Word: God Is Restoring the Wellsprings of Our Nation
God wants us to know that He is restoring the wellsprings of our nation.
If you were on the Pray With America’s Leaders webcast held on the 70th annual National Day of Prayer, you may remember seeing the picture below.
It’s always fascinated me to see the “Summerhouse” on the Capitol grounds–I can imagine visitors to Capitol and elected officials from years past bringing their horses there also for a drink from the well which was fed by a natural spring. The Summerhouse, part of an update to the Capitol grounds in the late 1800s, provided water and a place to rest for visitors to the Capitol.
On the National Day of Prayer, I was walking by from one event to another and saw this site- it was a repair project to the springs that flow under the Capitol grounds. I immediately heard the Lord speak to my spirit.
I heard that the wellsprings of this nation being drawn upon by godly leaders, in turn restoring freedom and godly values. In the physical or natural realm, we are seeing evidence of what God is doing in the natural realm. He is fixing and restoring and rebuilding those foundational springs that are welling up in our nation. God is restoring the wellsprings of our nation.
I shared this on the National Day of Prayer webcast and we prayed into it. (You can watch that segment in the webcast here.) The Lord was not done with that word for us.
As only God could orchestrate, fellow intercessor Barbara Iuliano called the “wrong line” and found herself on the line with Amy Sabat, an IFA staff member. She excitedly shared a dream she had several years ago.
She knew this particular dream was from the Lord as it was so strong and colorful. In it, she saw people walking through an archway and being healed. It didn’t matter what the problem was – blindness, lameness, deafness, mental illness – whatever the illness, they were healed. For years she has prayed into the dream, asking the Lord about it, especially the location of the arch. In fact, the very morning of last week’s National Day of Prayer broadcast, she saw the arch again and KNEW the Lord was bringing healing as people passed through the archway.
When she heard me talk about the wellsprings on the webcast, and then saw the picture of the arch from her dream, it resonated in her spirit.
After the webcast, Barbara asked the Lord about the men working to clean the waters. She asked the Lord if that was a picture of Him bringing healing for the nations. I believe the answer is yes. Barbara shared with us that the arch was a symbol of passing through. We all go through stuff to get to the other side. As He brings us through and into those clean waters, we experience purification, restoring and healing.
I am deeply moved by the timing. Barbara broke through to the private line. That dream would never have been shared if she had not called the wrong line. Not only that, but also last Thursday was our nation’s 70th official National Day of Prayer. God chose that day to demonstrate to us in the natural what He is doing in the spiritual.
After years of praying into this dream, we asked Barbara what she is praying now that God confirmed it through the IFA webcast and my story about the arched spring. She prays that NO plan would thwart what God wants to do – the cleaning up of DC and the nation walking into that place of holiness and righteousness, a place of cleansing and purity. Barbara told us, “This nation needs a cleansing, It needs a healing; not just a physical healing, but from all the scars. From the native Americans, from the black and white issues. There is a cry in the land. God is going to be answering the prayers of the intercessors, but also the ones that go all the way back that have prayed and laid the foundation stones for this nation.”
But there is still more to this word.
At our staff meeting this week, we pondered and shared about this amazing vision that God gave me and gave our intercessor Barbara, Amy shared that she had been praying into this vision and felt that the Holy Spirit led her to see that part of the healing that Barbara spoke of was the healing of the stain of abortion in our nation with the overturn of Roe v. Wade.
Remember, in Barbara’s dream, everyone was healed, no matter the illness. God is restoring our nation. However, the Enemy who seeks to steal, kill, and destroy will not go quietly. We must stay the course, keep praying and acting and expecting in faith that God IS moving while see ground taken for biblical values in our nation.
Will you pray into this vision, and share in the comments here what you sense the Lord is saying as you pray?
The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings. (Is 58:11-12)
Join me in praying Barbara’s heart for this nation: “Have your way God, have your way. Clear the way that clean waters will flow under the capital in Washington, DC. Clean their hands, clean their hearts, clean their feet, clean us oh God. Clean it by the washing of the water of Your Word.”
