Prayer is our most effective defense against the evils of our world today. I pray for unity in our nation in our political parties and our citizens that we may once again be the UNITED States of America. Amen!

Praying for our Governor, his wife and family. We are praying that he makes righteous decisions for our state. We trust that He prays and believes the Lord when He says, “I will instruct you and teach you the way to go with My eye upon you.”

I our Governor in his call on September 30. TO Go be the glory! AMEN.

Please also be in prayer for our team “COVER TN IN PRAYER” as we go pray and declare across the state next week from cities east to west and north to south, and I border states.

    I am daring to believe this for California. I pray California will someday lead this nation in righteousness, that God’s kingdom will come and His will be done HERE, that we will have no other King over our state but JESUS CHRIST!

This is beautiful, truly. As they humble themselves before Him, may God richly bless Gov. Bill Lee, his family, his colleagues, and his constituents. May this day be a “birthday” for Tennessee. I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen
