March 31, 2020 | From IFA Staff
As our President deals with this unprecedented and critical situation in our nation, impacting both the physical health and economic health of our nation, we feel impressed to share these urgent prayer points with you. The President needs our continued prayers at this pivotal time. There is a spiritual battle waging for how this virus will affect our nation—not just in the physical health of our citizens, but also what will be loosed in our nation spiritually through this virus and our response to it. Our response to this physical virus will very clearly determine the spiritual and governmental direction of our nation. We addressed that in a prayer call and the IFA prayer guide Holy Shaking. Holy Pause. Holy Reset.
We feel more than ever that we must intercede for the President as he is making decisions for our nation. During a crisis, there is a tendency to allow certain actions that normally people would push back on (for the greater good), and there is an opportunity for alliances to be formed, plans to be made–invisible to detect in the “fog of war.” We must not stop being watchmen on the wall, praying for our leaders, and asking for God’s intervention, even as we are distracted in our own homes with the current COVID-19 crisis. Let us not “take our eye off the ball” at this hour. Pray the prayer points below and send the President a message letting him know you are covering him in prayer.
- We must pray that any voices that President Trump is currently receiving counsel from that are not from God would be silenced and exposed–especially as it relates to COVID-19. (1 Thes 5:21 and Heb 4:12)
- We must pray that any evil agenda, whether it be economic, spiritual, or political that is trying to attach itself to the COVID-19 pandemic would be torn down. (Jn 10:10)
- We must recognize that there is a fight for “authority” in the spirit realm. God has anointed this President and the decrees that he makes must not be disarmed and reversed by the enemy. Donald Trump made a decree that by Easter, many sectors and spheres would open back up. Days later, that prophetic decree was overturned and reversed. The enemy is at work and an alarm must be sounded. Keep your eyes and ears specifically on this battle for his “words”. (Mt 16:19)
- We must pray that any muzzle trying to be placed upon Donald Trump’s mouth be broken. We are currently in the Hebrew year 5780 which is the year of the open mouth. May the President’s mouth be open and may he make righteous and wise decrees in the United States. May the Church open up their mouth and speak forth the word of God. (Mt 10:16)
- We must pray for the spirit of Jezebel to be thrown down in Washington D.C. Pray for the physical protection of President Trump–may no plan for harm to him in any way succeed. Pray that any financial crisis and hardship that the USA endures would not turn people unnecessarily against the President. (Ps 32:7)
- We must pray for our Governors and local authorities. Beware of the spirit of division and mutiny that may seek to cause confusion, oppression, and chaos in the months ahead. Pray for our religious freedom to be protected. (Hos 14:9)
- We must carefully guard our own mouths and choose to speak life, blessing, and prosperity over our cities, nation, and leaders. (1 Pet 2:9)
May we remember that our wrestle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Eph 6:12)
Send the President a message to let him know you are praying for him at this time!
