3/15/2020 Miracle City Global. Presidential National Day of Prayer
Anna Love. Good morning. The Lord is always speaking and he’s always moving. Just fix your eyes on him. As I was seeking the Lord this week, I heard two things. One is to Abide, and this morning I heard Hold Fast. Hold fast means to remain tightly secured, and to continue to believe in or adhere to an idea or principle.
So the word I’m hearing this morning is for us to hold fast to the Word of the Lord and the promises of the Lord and to stand, as individuals, as families, as church bodies, as the nation. Just to hold fast and hold fast to the Word of the Lord, because we’re not going to believe the evil report. We’re going to believe the good report, the godly report.
I John 4:12-13 AMP. No one has seen God at any time, but if we have love and love one another with unselfish concern, God abides in us, and his love, the love that is his essence abides in us and is completed and perfected in us. By this we know with confident assurance that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given to us his Holy Spirit.
As we stand this morning and in this time we are in, the Lord is telling us to abide. So press into Holy Spirit and let his peace and his comfort stir up in you like a river and just let it flow through you and out of you. Don’t give place to fear or complacency, any doubt or unbelief. It’s a time to hold fast and be secure in the Lord like never before.
Philippians 4:4-9 NLT. Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.
I want to charge you this morning to let the God of peace be your peace in everything that’s going on. Things we’re facing. Things you’re facing in your job. Things you’re facing with circumstances. Everything that’s going on right now. I would say, Hold to that peace. Also like we’ve been talking about on War Words, be careful what you say. Be careful what you say about businesses, about our government, about different things, because right now everyone is trying to do the best they can—for us as individuals, for families, and for the nation—to protect all of us.
The Lord is our protection and he is what upholds us and he is what keeps us. It’s important that we stay in a place where we’re acting with kindness, pressing into that higher call, acting with love; and not acting out of anger, rage, or fear, talking bad about people or out of both sides of our mouth. This is the time we really press into the Lord and let him be our peace.
Lord, we thank you for what you’re doing today and what you have in store for us. We pressing into you as our peace, Holy Spirit. I thank you that you come into our home, and the homes of those watching, wherever they are right now, and that your peace that passes all understanding guards our hearts and minds.
Father, I thank you that you are coming in like a flood with your love, with your security, even with your certainty. Where things look uncertain, I thank you that we are rooted and grounded in you. Lord, I thank you that no matter what things look like, that our focus and our fix is on you and we will not be moved.
We hold fast to your word. We hold fast to your promises. We are standing and we are not moving off of what you said. Lord, you have good things in store for us and we take hold of those good things for us individually, corporately, and as a nation. We say Yes to it. We will not be moved, no matter how dark things look. Your light is shining through and dispelling the darkness.
That same light that shines through you, Jesus, shines through us because of you. We put a demand on your Spirit within us right now. We say, Light Be, over this nation. We say, Light Be, over our cities, over our states. Father, I thank you that your hand of protection is upon us right now. I thank you that you are going through and quarantining our nation.
I thank you that right now you are cleaning out. I thank you that where things look like they could be disastrous, that in a moment you are securing all things. And where it looked like it would be a long thing, that it’s quick. Right now you are putting a Stop to disaster. You are putting a Stop to harm. You are putting a Stop to sickness and disease. You have put a Stop on it this morning in Jesus name.
Lord, open our eyes to see and our ears to hear all that you have in store for us. Come and move, Holy Spirit. Come and stir up the waters. We say Yes to all that you are doing, all that you have for us, and we step into it right now in Jesus name.
?Jesus, Jesus, you make the darkness tremble. You silence fear. No other name, no higher name than the name of Jesus. What a beautiful name. What a wonderful name it is. Now and forever, God, you reign. Yours is the kingdom. Yours is the glory. Yours is the name above all names. Oh the name of Jesus. We proclaim your name.
Jesus, Jesus, Master, Savior, Jesus. There’s just something about that name. Praise the name of Jesus. How great are you, Lord, and greatly to be praised. God, you’ve been so good to me. My soul sings, I love you, Lord. You’re my first love. You’re my reward. Sing with me, how great is our God. And all will see how great is our God. How great are you, Lord. You are worthy of all praise.
Kimble Love. Father, we thank you today that you are the name above all names. It’s through you, Jesus, that have a hope and a future, and a very great reward, because you always watch over your word to perform it. You have raised us up. You have given us new life. You have filled us with your grace, your mercy, and your love. And you have dispensed your faith, Lord Jesus, into our inmost beings.
We don’t go forth by our own strength, but we go forth in the anointing of the Son of the living God. Jesus, we thank you today that you have given us the ability and the power to produce wealth, to go forth and produce in this land, in this life. And as an offering unto you, Lord, we desire to give back unto you and sow into your kingdom this day with our first fruits and our tithes and our offerings.
Lord, we ask today that you would bless the hands of your people, that you would bless their homes, that you would bless their bodies. I thank you, Father, that you are watching over your word to perform it even now in our lives. We give you all the praise and the glory for it.
Miracle City Global family, you are such a blessing and God has raised each one of us up for such a time as this. I declare today, according to the Word of God, that truly no weapon formed against us will prosper. We refute every tongue that would rise to accuse us, in the name of Jesus.
We’re not fighting for victory. We’re fighting from victory. The victory is ours because the battle is the Lord’s. Together we stand and will see the goodness of the Lord restored in the land of the living, in Jesus name.
As we come to the table of the Lord, we want to fellowship together with the Lord’s Supper. Luke 22:14. When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. And he said to them, ‘I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God.’
After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, ‘Take this and divide it among you. For I tell you I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.’ And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.’
In keeping with the scriptures, we partake of the Lord’s Supper. We eat of the bread and drink of the cup. In so doing, we’re remembering the price that Jesus paid, the sacrifice, that he laid down his life for us. And through that sacrifice, he brought us back into right standing with God.
We are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb and that’s what that word, Redeemed, means, to be brought back into right standing. So therefore, when Jesus died and gave of his life, his body was broken and his blood was shed, and he died. He brought us back into the family.
So many times, we just thank the Lord for the salvation that we receive through that sacrifice, but not only did we receive our salvation and redemption, we received deliverance, healing, provision, the full benefits of the new covenant. And those full benefits are everything that God has established and set for us before the very foundations of the earth, so that we can walk with him and he in us, to fulfill the purposes that he created each one of us for.
Praise God. We thank you today, Father, for the blood of Jesus. We thank you for his broken body. We ask that you bless these elements, and as we take them into our bodies, we’re taking the very spiritual DNA of our Lord Jesus into our bodies and we are saying Yes to the fullness of the new covenant that you have granted us through the sacrifice of your Son.
We rejoice today that he is not dead, but he is alive. And he ever lives, seated at the right hand of the Father, to make intercession for his people. Father, we thank you today that you have raised each one of us up for such a time as this. We stand in the full grace and mercy that you have bestowed upon us, and we declare that Jesus is Lord over our lives, over our city, over our state, and over this nation and the world.
May your righteousness rain down and cover this world again as the waters cover the sea. We honor you today and we bless you in Jesus name. Amen. Thank you, Lord.
Lord, we do thank you and we remember your broken body. We remember the blood that was shed. And we receive the fullness of the new covenant that you have given us through your sacrifice. We love you, Lord, and we praise you. Amen and Amen.
Betty Love. We are broadcasting the life of Jesus. We are broadcasting the full benefits of the new covenant. If you are watching this morning and you need healing—spirit, soul, body—just receive that healing right now that Jesus has provided. If you are dealing with oppression or depression, receive the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Be anxious for nothing, but by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, we present our requests to God. And the peace of God that passes all understanding guards our hearts and our minds.
?You are the Way maker, Miracle worker, Promise keeper, Light in the darkness, my God. That is who you are. Even when I don’t see it, you’re working. Even when I don’t feel it, you’re working. You never stop working.
Betty. Lord, right now today as one, we join with the intercession across the nation and even around the world as we stand in the gap. Your Word says in Ezekiel, I sought a man to stand in the gap, to rebuild the wall of righteousness, to stand in the gap on behalf of the land so that I would not have to destroy it. It says that you found none.
But today, as your people across this nation and around the world, we have answered the summon of the cryer, Holy Spirit, that has drawn us as a people. And even the proclamation of our President, Donald John Trump, who has issued a proclamation and made this March 15, 2020, a National Day of Prayer.
Father, we have gathered together as one in our homes and from the beginning of this day, intercession is going up around this nation and even around the world. We’re coming into agreement with the prayers that are issuing out of the hearts of your people with the true declarations of your Word, of every true rhema word, every true prophetic word, your heart, your mind, your counsel that has been spoken over this nation.
Father, we agree with your kingdom plan and purposes, that you have a redemptive plan for the nation of America. And Lord, nothing can thwart that plan. We stand with our father Abraham, and as he took his place on behalf of Sodom and Gomorrah, we know the story, that he began with, If there be 50 righteous people, will you spare the city? All the way down to ten.
Recognizing a Jewish tradition that ten represents a spiritual quorum, Father, we know there are more than ten righteous people in our nation and standing in the earth in this hour. We take the promise of your Word that the prayers of a righteous man availeth much. And we come up in the righteousness of our God to take our stand and to come into agreement with your promise, with your Word.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. O Father, forgive us of our debts as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever.
Father, as we release the word and as Anna has released and led us in worship, and as Kimble has brought us to your table, we ask that you take the worship, take our coming to your table, and take this word for your glory. I thank you that we have an ear to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is speaking
As those have joined us watching, I thank you that hearts are prepared. We thank you for the opportunity to gather in your name. As this word goes forth today, I thank you it is a sent word, that it accomplishes in our hearts, in our homes, in our territories, tents, and treasuries, and every sphere of influence, and even in our nation, what you have ordained it to accomplish.
Lord, we agree with the intercession that is coming from your right hand. We yield to the Intercessor in us, Holy Spirit. We agree with heaven in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
The Lord had me reach into warfare scriptures for today. I believe these will be tools you and I can work with. As I release them today, we are going to come into agreement with them as rhemas.
Deuteronomy 20:1-4. When you go to war against your enemies, and you see horses and chariots, an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the Lord your God who brought you up out of Egypt will be with you. When you are about to go into battle, the priests shall come forward and address the army. He shall say, Hear O Israel, (Hear, O America,) today you are going into battle against your enemies. Do not be fainthearted or afraid. Do not be terrified or give way to panic before them. For the Lord your God is the One who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.
Hear, O America, today you are going into battle against your enemies, in this national call to prayer. Do not be fainthearted or afraid. Do not be terrified or give way to panic because of the coronavirus, or because of the things you see happening. Do not give way to panic before them, because the Lord your God goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.
I decree and declare into our lives, into our homes, into our cities, into our states, and our nation, it is the Lord our God who goes with us and has gone before us into this battle, into this situation that we face as the nation and even in the world. And he has gone before us to give us victory.
I believe we’re going to pray on this side of the Red Sea before we ever see it part. We’re going to praise on this side. It says if you will decree a thing it will be established and light will shine on your path. It is the Lord our God who has called this day of prayer and he has placed us in the gap on behalf of the land, and he has gone before us, mighty men and women of God, to give us the victory. The victory is yours when the battle is the Lord’s. The Word of God says that Jesus Christ always leads us in triumphal procession.
Ephesians 6:10. Our struggle is not against flesh and blood. It says to be strong in the Lord and the power of his might. Let’s look to where the real enemy is.
Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Some of your translations say that our struggle is against the rulers, authorities, powers of darkness, and spirits of wickedness in high places. And we are commanded to put on the full armor of God. And having done all to stand, Stand. That word is abide, remain. It also can be rooted out to covenant. So we’re going to stand fast in the Lord. I believe this morning the Lord showed me the War Word coming out of the Womb of the Dawn was that we would war with the ‘It is writtens.’ We would war with the rhema words God has given us, the scripture God has brought alive in our hearts as we have read the Word of God.
Maybe he’s given you the scripture, God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. And your assignment is just to release that over your city or your sphere of influence. Maybe the Lord has given you, Submit yourself to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you. America, we submit to God. We resist the devil and he flees from us.
So whatever that word is. Hosea 6:1-3 Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us. On the second day he will revive us. On the third day he will restore us that we might live in his presence. Come on, let us acknowledge the Lord. Let us press on to acknowledge him, for surely he will come like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.
Our God is never late. He is always on time. He said, Never will I leave you. Never will I forsake you. Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever. As we begin to release those rhemas, it becomes a weapon. Not only that, it’s the war word coming out of the womb of the dawn. We’re going to war. We’re going to pray the Word of God. We’re going to pray those rhema scriptures.
Any true prophetic word, the heart, the mind, the counsel of God that he has spoken to your heart personally or you know credible words that God has spoken over our nation, take hold of those and begin to come into agreement with them and release them.
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but they are mighty through our God to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God; and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
We need to make these words a part of us so we can war with them. I am hearing the Lord say right now, “I am reaching into your heart and I’m arresting your soul, and I am bringing forth II Corinthians 10:3-6 as a war word for you right now, righteous remnant, Church of the firstborn.” Your weapons are not carnal. They are not worldly weapons. We are not waging a worldly war.
Although in the natural we are looking at a pandemic, we are looking at people. There is death. There is fear. The economy is shaking. There are many things in the earth that are shaking right now. But God says to you and me, You have received a kingdom that cannot be shaken. And because God is in the midst of us, he will help us.
Do not be moved by what you see or you hear. Do not be moved by what the world is moved by. But because God is in the midst of us, he will help us. He is our help. Jesus said, I have not left you as orphans, but I have given you another just like me, the Comforter, the Counselor. He will show you what is and what is yet to come. He will lead and guide you into all truth.
I will not leave you as orphans. In this world you will have trouble. You will have tribulation. But what did Jesus say? Take heart. I have overcome the world. Another word spoken through the Lord Jesus Christ: I have made you more than conquerors. Nothing shall separate you from the love of God that’s in Christ Jesus. Say with me, I’m so glad! You know why? Because perfect love casts out all fear. If you feel panic or you feel like, I don’t know what to do; or, I’ve been laid off from my job; do not lose your head.
Peace, be still. Let the peace of Christ rule within the walls of your heart, within the walls of your home, within the walls of your city, your state, and your nation. We will not fear. We will not fear because the God of peace will crush satan under our feet.
And I say unto you, Rebound is coming. Rebound is coming. Rebound is coming. The Reset. God will not stop or thwart his plan for you and me. He will uphold us with his victorious right hand. It’s his Word. Peace, be still.
Our God will supply all of our needs according to his riches in glory. Zechariah. Because of the blood of the covenant, because of the blood of Jesus Christ, return to your fortresses, oh prisoners of hope. We are not those who grieve like there is no hope. Our hope is in the Lord. Our peace is in the Lord. Our strength is in the Lord. The name of the Lord is a high tower and the righteous run into it and are saved. God will not fail you.
Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength. Lean not on your own understanding. The weapons that we wage war with today on this National Day of Prayer, the weapons we war with are not carnal. But they are mighty weapons through our God to the pulling down of strongholds.
Let the spirit of fear, panic, let the pandemic, let the coronavirus, let the plan of the enemy to steal, kill, and destroy, not only us the people of God but in our nation, let that be stopped. Let any stronghold, any place that the enemy had any kind of legal right, we as the righteous in our God, in Christ Jesus, we stand before the Lord.
And Father, as a nation, if we have opened the door to the enemy through innocent bloodshed, through idolatry, through broken covenant, through immorality, through disobedience and rebellion to you and your Word, Father, we know that is an ongoing thing in this nation. Lord, regardless of how many prayer acts that we do or times that we repent, we know there is still a people in the land that are committing acts against you—sinning against you, sinning against the earth, sinning against one another.
Lord, in ourselves there is no solution. But Lord, I thank you that there is a blood and there is a name that speaks a better word. We thank you, Lord Jesus, through your broken body, your shed blood, and your resurrection, you have taken away the power of sin. You have removed sin from our lives. You have destroyed the power of it, the power of sin, death, disease, sickness, the works of the devil, and the devil himself. And we decree that victory for our lives.
And Father, we ask that you hear from heaven as people are assembled across this nation, and where we have made ourselves liable to destruction, we are asking that you forgive us. And as from the highest office in this land, the President of the United States, to the youngest child in the earth that is offering intercession to you, we are asking you to forgive us and heal our land.
Lord, it is time for the healing of America. It is time for the harvest. And Lord, we agree with your Word. So we pull down strongholds. We cast down imaginations as a corporate Esther, imaginations that would want to run rampant in cities, even in our state and nation. Lord, we tear that down right now in the name of Jesus.
We cast down imaginations and any high thing that would exalt itself against the knowledge of God. Lord, we are praying and we are commanding our thoughts even now to become captive to the obedience of Christ. Lord, you said once our obedience was complete, once we have submitted and subjected and come up under you and your authority, your anointing, your ability, our thoughts are obedient to you, Lord, then we can punish every act of disobedience. II Corinthians 10:3-6.
Verse 6, what does that mean? That means if there is a ‘not right place,’ if there is an injustice, if there is something that is violating what the Word of God says, we can release the power and the authority of the Word of God, the name of Jesus, and the power of the blood on that thing, and it is going to have to either be routed out, shift, or change; it will have to submit and bow to the name of Jesus Christ. It is what it is.
Kimble. In the scripture Jesus said, Let not your hearts be troubled, for behold, I’ve overcome the world. Jesus is the cure. Jesus is the Protecter. Jesus is the Deliverer. Jesus is going to have his way. Our hope is in Jesus. He’s our very great reward. He’s going to do what he says he’s going to do because he’s always done what he says he is going to do.
So he is our hope and our future. We stand in him and we receive and walk in the fullness of our salvation and deliverance and healing that he has purchased for us. So therefore, I’m not going to be afraid or dismayed by the things that I see going on around me, but I trust in him and him alone, and we see the victory because the victory is ours through Jesus. There is no other God. There is no other name. It is the name that is above all names—Jesus, Son of the living God.
Betty. Some of the war scriptures today: This is a decree. II Timothy 4:18. The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and will bring me to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory forever and ever. Amen.
John 16:33. These things I have spoken to you so that in me you may have peace in the world. You have tribulation, but take heart, I’ve overcome the world.
The Lord wants us to be his peace in the earth. He wants us to be his courage in the earth. The Word says that the righteous are as bold as a lion. There is a distinction being made in the earth right now. It is a distinction between the righteous and the unrighteous. The Lord so desires you to rise up in your true identity as sons of God and be the difference in your spheres of influence. Let the righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost so fulfill you.
This is another declaration. Genesis 15:1. After this the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, Do not be afraid, Abram, I am your shield and your very great reward. The Lord is our shield. He is our very great reward. He says, Do not fear. Fear not, little flock, for it pleases our Father to give us the keys to the kingdom. Do not worry about what you’re going to eat or drink, but seek first the kingdom and his righteousness, and all of these things will be added unto you. That’s out of Matthew 6.
Do not fear what you’re going to eat or drink or what you’re going to wear. The Father knows you have need of these things. Your supply lines will not be shut or cut off. God is well able to perfect what concerns you in this moment.
James 4:7. Submit yourself then to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
James 1:2-4. Consider it pure joy my brothers whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work that you be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
How do we deal with circumstances? How do we deal with trials? How do we face what’s going on in the world around us this day? We’re going to rule it. We’re going to judge it. We’re going to govern it with joy because the joy of the Lord is our strength. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
I Corinthians 10:13. No temptation has seized you except what is common to man, and God is faithful. He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.
But when you are tempted, he will provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. When you are tempted to fear or you are tempted to give into the prognosticators, or the things that are being spoken, ungodly things that want to strike fear in your heart, or bring sickness to your door, stand up and decree, No temptation has seized me but what is common to man. My God is faithful. I will not enter into doubt and unbelief or fear or discouragement in Jesus name.
I decree and declare over us Hebrews 11:1. Now faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not or cannot see. In KVJ. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Our faith and our hope is in God and his ability to counter every evil attack of the enemy. His ability to watch over his Word to perform it.
In that he said, Ask and it will be given. Seek and you’ll find. Knock and the door will be opened. In Jesus telling his disciples that they should always pray and not give us. And he used the example of the unjust judge.
There are people right now day and night crying out to God on behalf of our nation, on behalf of the people, on behalf of the people globally that are being affected by the virus, the economy, different things that are going on in the world. The Lord promises us that not only will he hear from heaven, but he will answer our prayer.
If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways and seek my face, I will hear from heaven and heal their land.
Our expectation is salvation, deliverance, and healing for our nation and that God’s kingdom plan stands for us and for our nation. A billion soul harvest.
Hebrews 11:1-3 TPT. Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen. This testimony of faith is what previous generations were commended for. Faith empowers us to see that the universe was created and beautifully coordinated by the power of God’s words. He spoke and the invisible realm gave birth to all that is seen.
I say unto you, righteous remnant, the atmosphere of heaven is full of the promises of God. There are prayer bowls already prepared to be released and poured out on our nation so that God’s redemptive plan is manifested. We are going to frame our day by what we say. Our power is in our mouth, our tongue. The tongue has the power of life and death, and those that love it will eat its fruit.
I admonish you to speak words of life and to speak the, It is written, over our nation and into your spheres of influence so that your words will bring life to a situation where the enemy wants to bring death. Jesus said, The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.
The first Adam, God breathed in him the breath of life and he became a living being. Our second Adam, his name is Jesus Christ. God breathed into him and he became a life-giving Spirit. We are the life-giving spirits in Christ via Holy Spirit into the earth. God has set you in your city, in your sphere of influence, in your state, and in the nation, in your neighborhood as a life-giver and a life-bringer.
Come into agreement with the right hand command. Come into agreement with God’s redemptive plan. Come into agreement with God’s word. He sent forth his word and he healed us. By his stripes we have been healed.
I impart to you the give of faith. I put a demand on the Word of God that is stored in you. I call our spirit men to rise up in God’s true righteousness and holiness. I call us into divine order to be who we really are. We are spirit beings living in a body with a soul.
I decree and declare in view of God’s mercy to us, continually we offer unto God our bodies as a living sacrifice, which is our reasonable act of service. We do not conform to the pattern of this world but we are transformed. Our minds are renewed and steadfast, able to test and approve God’s good, pleasing, and perfect will. And his will is to save a nation. And his will is to save the world through his Son.
His will is, I have a cure and it’s my blood and it’s my name. Apply the blood to your home. Apply the blood of Jesus Christ to your life. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. So let your testimony be in alignment with the Word of God, and not with man, and not with fear, and not with the kingdom of darkness.
You are going to summon one of two kingdoms. You are either going to summon the kingdom of God by speaking words of life and his written Word; or you are going to summon the kingdom of darkness by speaking death. Speak life. Frame your day, your world, by what comes out of your mouth. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
So it is imperative as you have time, children out of school, people staying home, renew your heart and mind. Let your heart be filled with the Word of God. Meditate upon the Word. Let the meditations of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O God.
Hebrews 11:33-34 TPT. Through faith’s power they conquered kingdoms and established true justice. Their faith fastened onto their promises and pulled them into reality.
That is what this National Day of Prayer is about. It’s about fastening onto the promises of God by taking hold of the Word of God, taking hold of his kingdom plan for your life, and pulling it down into the earth realm. Our God is a God who calls those things that are not as though they were.
It was faith that shut the mouth of lions, put out the power of raging fire, and caused many to escape certain death by the sword. In their weakness, their faith imparted power to make them strong. Faith sparked courage within them and they became mighty warriors in battle, pulling armies from another realm into battle array.
You might say, What does that mean? That means when you speak the Word of God, you speak the word of faith when you agree with God’s intercession. Jesus is able to save completely those that come to God because he always lives to intercede. It’s in The Book.
You are causing the angelic armies to run on the written Word of God, on the spoken word of God. They will respond. Heaven responds to the Word. Heaven responds to the name of Jesus. Heaven responds to the blood of Jesus. And not just the kingdom of heaven, the kingdom of God, but the kingdom of darkness responds and bows to the name of Jesus, the blood of Jesus, and the Word of God. It is written, Church.
Kimble Love. I Peter 5:5-11. God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Humble yourself therefore under God’s mighty hand that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him for he cares for you. Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of suffering. And the God of all grace who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm, and steadfast. To him be the power forever and ever. Amen.
Betty Love. There are so many promises in that passage of scripture. These are war words and war passages for us. He gives us instruction. In this place right now, because of our President and you, many of you are postured here, and I can guarantee you that our President and First Lady and our Vice-President have offered up much prayer over these last several days and weeks for wisdom. There has been a lot of prayer going up.
As one, as a nation, we have said, We’re going to seek the face of our God. There are situations and circumstances where people do not know what to do, just like Jehoshaphat. But we’re going to fix our eyes on Jesus. We’re going to set our hearts and our minds on things above. It says the God gives grace to the humble. So we have postured ourselves as a nation in humility to say, We can’t answer this apart from God. We can’t come out of this apart from God. What is he going to do? God bless America. America, America, God shed his grace on thee. And that’s what’s happening.
He says that when we humble ourselves under his mighty hand, he promises to lift us up in due time. He says, Cast your care upon me. These are all instructions. Go back to I Peter 5:5-11. Receive the grace of God to humble yourself. Take the promise that he will lift us up in due time. Take the instruction to cast your care upon him individually, corporately, and as a nation.
He admonishes us to be self-controlled and alert. Be sober and alert because we have an enemy. And he is prowling around seeking whom he may devour. We’re saying, Not in our house. We’re saying, Not in our city. Not in our state. Not in our nation. Not only that, in verse 9 it says, Resist him. Fight the devil. How are you going to fight the enemy? How are you going to fight this virus? How are you going to fight fear? How are you going to fight economic issues?
You’re going to fight it with the faith of the Son of God. You’re going to fight it with the Word of God. You’re going to fight it from the right hand command. You’re going to fight it in trusting God and having done all to stand, Stand!
He says, Resist him, standing firm in the faith. What is the faith? His name is Jesus Christ. It’s who we believe in. It is the living God. Our faith is in him because we know right now in this season how fitting it is. I Peter 5. Our brothers throughout the earth are going through the same trial. They’re facing this virus. They’re facing economic issues. They’re facing serious situations in their nation, in their cities.
Jesus Christ has the answer. So we’re going to resist the enemy. We’re going to stand firm in our faith. Jesus Christ is Lord. And we’re going to see the salvation of the Lord in the land of the living. Because the Lord promises, And the God of all grace who called you to his eternal glory, after you’ve suffered a little while, after you’ve been through this tribulation, you’ve been dealing with this trial, he himself will restore you, make you strong, firm, and steadfast. So I say unto you, What the enemy has meant for harm our God is going to work for the good.
Anna Love. Psalm 24 TPT. God claims the world as his. Everything and everyone belongs to him. He’s the one who pushed back oceans to let the dry ground appear, planting firm foundations for the earth. Who, then ascends into the presence of the Lord? And who has the privilege of entering into God’s Holy Place?
:4 Those who are clean—whose works and ways are pure, whose hearts are true and sealed by the truth, those who never deceive, whose words are sure. They will receive the Lord’s blessing and righteousness given by the Savior-God. They will stand before God, for they seek the pleasure of God’s face, the God of Jacob. Pause in his presence
:7 So wake up, you living gateways. Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny. Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you. You ask, “Who is this Glory-King?” The Lord, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, invincible in every way.
:9 So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice. Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny. Here he comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in. You ask, “Who is this King of Glory?” He is the Lord of Victory, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts. Yes, he is the King of Glory. Pause in his presence
So Lord, we just thank you right now that you are our King of Glory. We fling wide right now. I thank you that the doors of destiny are open. That your gateways are open over this nation. Jesus, I thank you that you are coming in our midst, that your glory is filling your Body, that your glory is filling our land.
Father, I thank you that the light of your glory, the light of your face, has come in and it has dispelled the darkness. So we open ourselves up to you. We say, Make way for the King of Glory. You are welcome in this place in Jesus name. Amen.
Betty. And Lord, as we have released these words, and there is so much more, we just honor you as our King, as our Lord. We acknowledge that you are a present help in time of trouble. We thank you that because you are in our midst and you are with us, Father, we thank you that we have the victory. Lord, we give you all glory and honor. Father, we speak strength to every believer, everyone watching in this hour. We thank you for your goodness. We thank you for your promise that you are tipping the prayer bowls of America.
And Father, what the enemy has meant for harm, I thank you that you have already turned—the turning point, the tipping point today, comes in our nation. Lord, I thank you that you have heard our cry and seen our tears and Father, that you heal our land.
Jesus, we acknowledge the power and authority of your name, that you are sustaining all things by your Word. And we thank you, Lord, that you take your rightful place in our nation. As our Deliverer, as our Healer, Lord God, we say Yes to your redemptive plan.
We ask that you would fill afresh everyone, every believer throughout this nation. And we decree and declare Life Life Life Life Life Life Life. We choose Life and Blessing. We say No to death and curses. We say No to every scheme of the enemy. And we decree and declare that the kingdom of God comes in our land on earth as it is in heaven and rules in this nation. Lord, we give you all glory and honor in Jesus name. Amen and Amen. Have a blessed day.
