Submitted Prayers For South Dakota

Kathy Schmeichel (prayer call host)
January 21, 2024

We are working with other prayer leaders from all parts of South Dakota to coordinate praying over our dams, bridges and waterways to complete the assignment given by Dutch Sheets in GH 15 this past Monday.

Kathy Schmeichel (prayer call host)
January 21, 2024

We will have our weekly prayer call January 22, 2024 at 7 AM central time/ 6 AM mountain time.

This past week I have been reminded of the importance of putting on my spiritual armor every morning and the need for prayer coverage when going into battle in the spirit realm. I do not always start our prayer call with putting on the armor, but tomorrow morning we will begin by reading Ephesians 6:10-18, followed with II Corinthians 10:3-6 from the Amplified version.

Prayer Points:
We will share then pray for the protection of the dams, bridges and waterways of South Dakota.
Pray for the shepherds of the flocks of South Dakota to be bold in speaking Truth to their congregations. May they have courage to say abortion is the murdering of a child and to call for their people to be active in the fight to keep it from being legal in South Dakota.
Pray for healing of the breach between Governor Noem and the tribes of South Dakota. Pray that all the tribes will bring their flags to be posted in the rotunda of the capitol as evidence of this healing.

Reminder that the 51st Walk for Life in Pierre is Sunday January 28 from noon – 1 CT at the state capitol. Following the walk is the 51st Annual Hour of Reflection in the capitol rotunda at 2 CT.

Scripture and prayer points for Monday, December 18 prayer call:
1. Proposal to change the state seal and flag. This was one of the topics covered in Pierre when the tribes met last month. I saw the article attached this week on the subject. I believe it is appropriate for us to pray over it.
2. Wednesday night at Bible study, we had a conversation about the ‘orphan spirit’. I will share more on this, especially as it relates to the Lakota, before we pray. The Lord showed me that this is behind all the confusion among the children and teens about their identity. Lamentations 5:2-3; Isaiah 1:15-18; Jeremiah 49:11; Psalm 68:4-6; John 14: 18
3. Election integrity. We may have a special guest to talk to us on this. If he is able to join us, we will make this our first prayer point.
We will pray using Psalm 58 as time allows, targeting the taking down of the enemy’s influence over this nation.

Prayer Points December 11, 2024
Three Mondays left in 2023. Let us finish strong with our intercession for South Dakota, our communities and this nation.
I want to thank each one who sent me articles or news items for consideration as prayer points. The governor gave her budget speech this past week. Below is a quote from her speech and I include a link to the full transcript if you are interested in reading it.
“When most of us think about South Dakota, we think of our land, our economy, our assets, our natural beauty. But, when I think of South Dakota, I think of our people.
‘Under God, the People Rule.’ That is not only our state motto, it’s our way of life. It’s my priority every day when I come to work.”
Here are the prayer points for this week:
1. Pray for our governor and her staff.
2. Pray for wisdom and discernment for our legislature when they convene in January as they review the proposed budget and begin making adjustments to it.
a. Let us pray concerning the sources of revenue the state is dependent on, specifically taxes collected from gambling.
b. $1.17 billion gambled this year, earning a record-setting $163 million in revenue for the state.
c. Pray for city leaders that are working to cap new casinos.
3. Continue our prayers against the legalization of marijuana.
4. Continue praying for LIFE.
a. Pray confusion in the enemy camp that keeps them from gathering enough signatures to put the amendment on the ballot in 2024. (ACLU and Planned Parenthood of South Dakota are at odds with Dakotans for Health)
b. Pray for an end to abortion in Israel. (Please take the time to read the attached article. I know the author through Global Family 24/7 prayer. She has an amazing testimony and is a powerful intercessor.)
5. Pray for election integrity.
a. Praise for the Minnehaha county’s top election official’s perseverance in getting the Election Management System laptop handed over to the auditor.
b. Pray for our secretary of state to follow through on her campaign stance of election integrity being a priority.

d. “And we just declare that the Spirit of the Lord is coming to these nine reservations…I just decree right now, in Jesus name, that the Spirit of God is coming to visit the Native People of this state…There is going to be an outpouring of the Spirit of God that comes to this region, and it is going to flow through all of these reservations until that spirit of leviathan that has ruled there is completely driven out. The spirit of death that has ruled, the spirit that has tried to strangle them and steal and kill and destroy, tried to shame, and tried to take from them their inheritance, we say that yes, there has been something reserved for those people, and they will rise up and begin to be seen as a people of God, as a blessed people, as a people visited by the very Spirit of the Lord, and there will be a move of God’s Spirit that will be key to what He wants to do in this entire state.

Good morning SD prayer warriors. I had not looked at the calendar until I started putting together prayer points for tomorrow, so had not realized we would be meeting on 9/11. I believe this is significant. The feast of trumpets is at the end of the week beginning the 10 days of awe leading to the Day of Atonement. These are important times set by the Lord.

Prayer points for tomorrow morning’s call:

Isaiah 9:8-21 – remembering 9/11 with prayers of repentance for our nations refusal to turn to God after that event.
Ezekiel 7:5-8, 23-27; 9:3&4; 14:12-23 Pray concerning preparation for the coming shaking
In light of whistle blower information and hints from D.C., let us pray confusion over the enemy regarding threats of mandates related to a new strain of Covid and RSV along with the discovery of bio lab in CA that had multiple live virtues on site and no one seems to know who the lab belonged to.
We will pray for our state and local government leaders, including the leadership of the reservations.

You are the true source of our cherished rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Reclaim this land for Your glory and dwell among Your people. Please touch the hearts of our nations leaders and citizens. Open their minds to the great worth of human life, and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom. Remind Your people that true happiness is rooted in seeking and doing Your will. Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, patroness of our land, grant us the courage to reject the culture of death. Guide us into a new era of Life and Love. Amen

Father I thank you for the privilege of living in SD. I ask that you will turn the hearts of South Dakotans toward yourself. We pray for the churches in our state, that they would be teaching the pure gospel. I pray that abortion would be recognized for what it is, nothing but child murder. I pray for our families, that they would be strengthened, and that fathers would be the defenders of their children. I ask that you would give wisdom to all of our state and local leaders, that they would make their governing decisions based on truth.
