I have been granted some revelation of the struggle we are in. I wish I could tell you that we are about to see the final victory, but that is not the case. A pastor at our church got a prophetic word last week, and you can read that here.
But I am coming to realize that our struggle is generational. We must be prepared to protect our children and their children from the evils of this world. We can only do this through putting a love of God in their hearts while they are children and praying for them at all times and all occasions. A good protection prayer is to read Ephesians 6:10-18, the armor of God over them.
Today, I want to offer up a very specific prayer of supplication for our country over the next month. Please read this and agree with me in prayer for this.
Heavenly Father, You are a holy, just and loving God. It is through You that we get all of our provision, the bible says, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” So I am asking you to supply all of our needs, and bathe us in your rich glory as we worship and honor you. I also want to ask for your help to move this nation toward you and to become more holy and honor you the way our national motto says, “In God We Trust.” The bible says, “And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.” We need you to show yourself, let this land and the whole world see that you are truly the Lord.
Father, we also need truth and integrity in our election and governmental process. Your word says, “These are the things that you shall do: Speak the truth to one another; render in your gates judgments that are true and make for peace;” Please help us speak truth, help us render honest judgements that are true and make for peace. Your word also says, “ The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.” I don’t wish for anyone to be destroyed, but I would rather see all people achieve a level of integrity in thought and deed that would honor You. We also need integrity in the voting booth, we need the machines and those who administer them to record actual intended votes. Your word says, “The Lord detests dishonest scales, but accurate weights find favor with him.” May all of the voting be done under your favor, and where fraud or deceit occurs, it is brought to light quickly enough to resolve it.
Finally, Father, you said, “that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” So I pray for our leaders, may they make wise, godly decisions to lead this nation and community in Your path. May we live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. For ourselves, may we follow your path. Your word says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord.” Lord, come and prosper us. Find us and make us yours. For what we really want is what is found in your word, in 2 Chronicles 7:14, “ if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” Lord, heal our land. Bring us back to you. In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
