“Ask the LORD for rain In the time of the latter rain. The LORD will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, grass in the field for everyone. For the idols speak delusion; the diviners envision lies, and tell false dreams; they comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; they are in trouble because there is no shepherd.
My anger is kindled against the shepherds, and I will punish the goatherds. For the LORD of hosts will visit His flock, the house of Judah, (worshipers) and will make them as His royal horse in the battle. From him comes the cornerstone, from him the tent peg, from him the battle bow, from him every ruler together. They shall be like mighty men, who tread down their enemies In the mire of the streets in the battle. They shall fight because the LORD is with them, and the riders on horses shall be put to shame.
I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph. I will bring them back, because I have mercy on them. They shall be as though I had not cast them aside; for I am the LORD their God, and I will hear them. Those of Ephraim shall be like a mighty man, and their heart shall rejoice as if with wine. Yes, their children shall see it and be glad; their heart shall rejoice in the LORD. I will whistle for them and gather them, for I will redeem them; and they shall increase as they once increased.
I will sow them among the peoples, and they shall remember Me in far countries; they shall live, together with their children, and they shall return. I will also bring them back from the land of Egypt, and gather them from Assyria. I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon, until no more room is found for them. He shall pass through the sea with affliction, and strike the waves of the sea: all the depths of the River shall dry up. Then the pride of Assyria shall be brought down, and the scepter of Egypt shall depart.
So I will strengthen them in the LORD, and they shall walk up and down in His name, says the LORD.” Zechariah 10:1-12 NKJV
LORD, tear down the idols in our land to entertainment and money, to power and fame, tear down the altars to Satan in this land; tear down the strongholds of Freemasonry, Satanism, Wicca and all false religion!
Forgive us for allowing through our prayerlessness this wickedness to grow.
Forgive us for our lack of faith and our worldliness. Help us ABBA by Your GRACE to persevere in prayer and worship for this nation and the nations of the earth.
The earth is groaning, and we are Your servants, so impart the Spirit of intercession and travail upon those who are willing, and raise up the worship warriors also in the younger generation, that will come out of the world, and be willing to serve you.
They won’t be willing unless YOU apprehend them LORD, for Your word says that no man comes to Christ except that YOU draw him.
So DRAW the generations to YOU LORD. RELEASE REVELATION of JESUS, and whatever they need to break the unbelief, doubt and skepticism off their lives.
Bring down the Spirits of unbelief, Antichrist, all deaf and dumb spirits, and spirits of blindness that have covered the ears and eyes of the people.
Unless YOU release Holy Spirit, they will stay in darkness LORD.
Give us the treasures hidden in darkness LORD.
Save our children and grandchildren. Open the eyes LORD! Open the eyes and ears. Open the hearts to You.
Forgive LORD, and Break spiritual blindness off people and spiritual deafness that they will have ears that can hear and eyes that can see LORD! Thank You that You hear and will answer our cries for help LORD!
“Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand ? Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace. So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple,” Luke 14:31-33 NKJV.
LORD, in this nation we have so many comforts, and things to make things easier.
Please LORD, turn our eyes towards YOU by Your grace remove anything that conflicts with the Love we need to have for you.
Forgive our “adulteries” with the world, and our own inventions, and help us to love You more.
LORD, also give to us generous hearts for those who are without, that we would share whatever we have with those who are in need when You direct us to.
Take any selfishness out of our hearts, that we can be Your true ambassadors.
Take out all anger, because when idols are removed, like in Gideons time, they got angry.
Help us to cling to YOU, and not to our things.
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled,” 2 Corinthians 10:2-6 NKJV.
Release oh LORD, the discernment and grace we need to not walk in the flesh. Give to us YOUR wisdom LORD, that we can traverse the waters that have come against us and pray according to Your Holy Spirit.
By Your GRACE LORD, we can do all things, but we need more of you and less of us.
Bring us to the place of surrender to our own ways, and help us to grow up to the stature of Christ Jesus, that we would look like You, act like You, and be Your tender-hearts who are willing to lay down our lives for others.
“And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them ! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.” Revelation 12:7-12 NKJV.
Oh LORD, revive Your work in this hour and make us strong in sharing our testimonies of what YOU have done for us in our lives.
Give us the grace to not love our lives even unto death. For we belong to You. We were bought and paid for with the precious blood of Your Son Jesus, so we pray YOU will grant us great grace Abba in this hour, to do all that You want for us to do, and to remain close to Your heart that we would have discernment to know what to do and what not to do.
LORD, in your judgment, remember mercy!
Have mercy on the United States of America and it’s people and RESTORE the foundations that were built on Truth, and Justice.
Make us a people who are just to all people of every race and ethnicity.
Make us a people who are so filled with Your LOVE, that we exude grace, mercy, and love that breaks every yoke of death.
In JESUS name we pray!
