Day 20, Fasting & Prayer

1 Timothy 2:1-2, I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

Heavenly Father, You Are The Creator of Heaven and Earth. You Are The God of Every Nation and we stand in need of your blessings. Lord, You know the current state of our nation. You see the evil that is happening in our nation. Heavenly Father, the government of this nation is helpless without You Lord. Our legislators, senators, governors, mayors, are helpless without You Lord. You word says, Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Without You Oh God, this nation will not be able to stand against its enemies foreign and domestic. So Lord, according to Your word, we humble ourselves and pray, seeking Your face and turning from their wicked ways, that we may hear You speak from heaven, and that You might heal our land. Heavenly Father, we confess our sins. For we are a nation in reproach, and in need of Your help today. We confess and repent of our sins of disobedience, ignorance, irresponsibility, sins of commission and omission, as well as our lack of devotion to You God. We confess and repent for turning a blind eye to the needy and the oppressed, for allowing prejudice and racism to go without rebuke. We confess and repent for not protecting the helpless, not defending the innocent, not seeking justice, favoring one ethnicity over another. We confess and repent for remaining silent while children died in the womb, and innocent people were killed without justice. We confess and repent for idolizing politics over the government of heaven, for objectifying women, and emasculating men, for attempting to neutralize genders, for prioritizing materialism, money, fame and wealth.

Heavenly Father, because You have the power to make all things well, we pray now that you heal every cities, in and around the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. We also pray that You heal the State of Texas, and bring healing to America that we be able to unite in Jesus’ name. We rebuke the spirits of anger, hate, jealousy, envy, murder, and all institutions of racism in this country.

Heavenly Father, we pray You restore peace in our nation. From the east coast to the west coast. From the southern border to the northern border of the USA, we ask that You send peace in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, because You set up kings and princes, we ask that You touch the heart of leaders all across this nation, who are currently in positions of authority. Lord, You know how to remove those who are not in agreement with Your perfect will and how to set up new leaders in authority in Jesus’ name. Lord, we ask that You send the Moses, the Daniels and Esthers who possess the humility, integrity and character, are who are filled with the Holy Spirit, full of faith, wisdom, and are anointed and appointed for such a time as this. Lord protect them as they fulfill their Kingdom purpose and assignments in the earth. Lord, renew their strength and give them grace that is sufficient for enduring persecution. Lord give them the boldness, courage to confront wickedness with bold faith and righteousness tenacity, that You may give them the platform to speak truth to power in Jesus’ name. Give them an unusual level of perseverance that outlasts the stubbornness of wickedness in Jesus’ name. For we declare peace in our cities and in our nation now in Jesus’ name.

Heavenly Father, we pray for the outgoing President Donald Trump, his wife and family. Lord, we ask that Your will be done in his life. We pray that he may live to see and know that You Are King of kings and Lord of lords. And we pray that You bless our new President Joe Biden & Vice President Kamala Harris. Lord bless their families, as well as the decision-makers and counselors surrounding them. Lord reveal that You Are The God of Wisdom. Thank You for protecting Your True Prophets. Heavenly Father, we give You permission to turn the heart of the king so Your word is fulfilled and Your Name is glorified throughout the United States of America and around the world in Jesus’ name. Lord we Thank You for interrupting all politics as usual to awaken us spiritually. For You Are GOD, and there is none beside YOU. Lord we ask that You raise up righteous leaders and place them in positions of authority in government as well as the marketplace in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, send the Deborah’s of our generation in Jesus’ name. Lord we pray You send righteous military men and women, righteous police chiefs and law enforcement officers, righteous judges and lawyers in the courtroom, righteous city councilmen and women, righteous mayors and governors, senators and legislators, doctors, principals, teachers and others who are called by Your name into the professional workplace in Jesus’ name.

Lord bless our military men and women abroad who serve and protect our righteous causes in other countries day and night. Refresh them and give them the grace they need to protect and serve faithfully. Strengthen them so their hearts don’t fail in the face of difficulty, when responses are slow, when they face uncertainty on the battlefield, Lord send Your angels to remind them The Lord Is My Shepherd and I Shall Not Want, He Maketh Me to lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside still waters, He restores my soul, He leadeth in paths of righteousness for His name sake. Yeah, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou Art With Me, Thy Rod and Thy Staff they comfort me, Thou prepare a table before them in the presence of my enemies, You anoint their heads with oil and cause their cups to run over. Cause goodness and mercy to follow them all the days of their life that they might dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Now Heavenly Father, You said, where sin did abound, grace did much more abound. And so Lord, we pray for Your love to abide in us and abound in us in Jesus’ name. We ask for a supernatural love increase and overflow in Jesus’ name. Lord we speak love into the atmosphere. We decree and declare Phileo Love, brotherly love and acts of kindness are about to go viral in this country this year in Jesus’ name. We declare the love of God is so attractive, tv, newspaper, talk radio, music entertainment, social media platforms, and all industry headlines are changing across the country in Jesus’ name. By faith, we declare this Love Takeover is happening in our cities, in our state, and across this country, and our children’s children will know about it. Heavenly Father, pour out Your spirit. Release visions and dreams. Give hope to the hopeless. And shift this country into its next season of hope and blessings, in Jesus’ name. Now Heavenly Father, we bless Your Holy Name. We give You all the glory, and we give You all the honor and praise. For Thine Is The Kingdom, and the power, both now and forever. We ask and believe all these things are done in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
