Day 52! “52 Days of Prayers To Rebuild America!”

Song: The Joy Of The Lord/ Maverick City Music

Thank you for faithfully praying with me with your God-given authority over the last 52 days! An article I wrote for ifapray.org about Nehemiah rebuilding the wall in just 52 days started these 52 days of prayers! Your prayers are making a difference for America and the world! God is on the move, and I believe we are seeing Him respond to the injustices in America!

Yom Kippur begins today, October 4, which is the fifty-second day of praying for America! This meaningful Jewish holiday is a time to atone (ask for forgiveness) for our transgressions and become cleansed and purified from our sins. It is also a time to fast and put God back on the throne of your heart, making Him your number one desire, letting all idols go. Yom Kippur—the Day of Atonement—is considered the most important holiday in the Jewish faith.

Scripture: 1 Thess. 5:17 (Phillips)

“Be happy in your faith at all times. Never stop praying. Be thankful, whatever the circumstances may be. If you follow this advice, you will be working out the will of God expressed to you in Jesus Christ.”

Prayer: Jesus, how wonderful you are! We love you and praise you! We thank you for Yom Kippur, a time to stop, reflect, fast, and ask for forgiveness of our sins. Thank you for hearing our prayers! We appreciate the fact that we can partner with you and your saving grace, justice, and mercy upon the earth. Lord, have your way! Bless these faithful ones who have prayed without ceasing! Champion of Heaven’s armies, thank you that you are saving America and the world! It’s in the majestic and loving Name of Jesus, we pray, Amen.

Decree out loud: I decree I will continue to pray perseveringly for America and the nations! I decree I will choose to “be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.” 1 Thess. 5:17 (The MSG) I declare our prayers and worship “will have victory over all our enemies, and all who oppose you will be routed.” (Micah 5:9, VOICE)

Prophetic encouragement: I hear the persistent, roaring prayers of God’s people! Well done, my faithful ones, He says! Keep persevering, keep aligning your heart with mine, and never cease praying! He hears you and comes to bring you hope, love, peace, and an increased measure of faith! May you be blessed today and always!

Song: Do It Again/ Bethel

Scripture: Matthew 25:21 (EXB)

“The master answered, ‘You did well. You are a good and ·loyal [faithful] servant. Because you were ·loyal [faithful] with ·small [a few] things, I will ·let you care for [put you in charge of] ·much greater [many] things. ·Come and share my joy with me [ Enter into the joy of your master].’

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

Prayer: Jesus, thank you for sharing with us when we have been faithful over a little; you will set us over much! Praise you, Lord! God, we desire to remain faithful in these hard days, knowing and relying on your love alone. The culture’s opinion does not matter; only yours does! Help us to be careful how we live and to make the most of everything you give us to do in these evil days. Help us to turn and ask you what we should do and not act thoughtlessly. (Eph. 5:16-17) You tell us to, “Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light.” Jesus, thank you for bringing us your light and helping us to live in your light, listening to Holy Spirit guiding us! In your Name alone, we pray, Amen.

Decree out loud: I decree God’s faithful are entering into the joy of the Lord! I declare the sleepy ones are awakening to what Jesus says and not what culture is trying to influence. I decree believers are walking in a greater measure of Jesus’ light and revelation! I declare, “The light within you produces only what is good and right and true.” (Eph. 5:9) Amen!

Prophetic encouragement: I hear the Spirit say, Come, celebrate with me you who have prayed and faithfully interceded for America! You have remained loyal to Jesus, the Author, and Perfector of your faith! You will be rewarded, and recompense is coming your way! Hallelujah friends!

Day 50 “52 Days of Prayers To Rebuild America!”

Song: King Of My Heart/John Mark & Sarah McMillan

Scripture: Matthew 22: 37-40 (NIV)

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Prayer: Jesus, you tell us this is the greatest commandment, and we want to honor God with all that we are! In fact, when we honor God, our lives are in order. So, Jesus, we thank you for showing us God, our Father, and bringing us near to Him. We thank you that when we honor God first, then our family and country, we are honoring and obeying you. Help us show love and care to our neighbors, for this also shows reverence to you. Lord, help us to shine your love light on others and show them compassion leaving the judgment to you. It’s in the loving Name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

Decree out loud:  I decree I will love the Lord my God with all my passion, prayers, and intelligence. I declare believers are becoming more passionate for Jesus, keeping their flame burning brighter for Him! I declare He is putting His words and thoughts in our hearts and mouths as we draw near to Him!

Prophetic encouragement: Followers of Christ are rediscovering these scriptures as the most important, next to John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” The Lord will comfort America again and bring pity upon the ruin of her society. Joy and gladness will be found here, along with sounds of thanksgiving filling the air! (Isa. 51:3)

Song: You Make Me Brave/ Bethel Music/Amanda Cook

Scripture: Romans 10:9-10

“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.”

Prayer: God, thank you that everyone who calls on the name of Jesus will be saved. (Rom. 10:13) Lord, I pray for America and the nations to turn to you, receive you, and declare You as their resurrected Savior! Jesus, you are our hope, our joy, and our very life! No matter what happens here on earth, your believers will go home with you someday to heaven. True life, true love, and unconditional acceptance are found in you alone. Nothing compares to spending time in your loving presence! Thank you, Jesus, for being my King and Savior! Amen.

Decree out loud: I decree Jesus is my Lord and my King! I decree billions are coming to Jesus! I declare these people belong to Jesus and not the enemy! I decree Jesus has won the victory and will continue to win! I declare as a follower of Jesus, He gives me confidence and bravery to push back the darkness! The billion-soul harvest is coming and will change the cultural environment! Amen.

Prophetic encouragement: I encourage you right now to pray for those in your circle who do not know Jesus! Or, if you have never prayed to Jesus to be your Lord, let’s pray this together: Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for me and my sins. I believe you are God’s Son, and He brought you back from death. (resurrected) I confess with my mouth; you are my Lord. Come into my heart and be my Lord for the rest of my days. Thank you, Jesus! Tell someone you just made the best decision of your life! All of heaven rejoices with you, and please let me know! 😊

Song: Reign Above It All/ Bethel Music

Scripture: Leviticus 18:1-5 (NIV)

“The Lord said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘I am the Lord your God.  You must not do as they do in Egypt, where you used to live, and you must not do as they do in the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you. Do not follow their practices.  You must obey my laws and be careful to follow my decrees. I am the Lord your God.  Keep my decrees and laws, for the person who obeys them will live by them. I am the Lord.”

Prayer: Jesus, voting begins (or early voting has begun in some states) soon. God, I am praying believers throughout our great land will stand up and go vote. This is a right that has cost many their lives, so we should not take it for granted. Lord, encourage people to be poll watchers, run for office, and help reinstate your Godly morals and integrity into our country. Lord, help us to research each candidate and what they stand for, choosing those who stand for upright, Godly, and family values. God, help us to desire your laws and decrees, for there is freedom, safety, and security in them.

Decree out loud: I decree God’s followers are awakening to Him and choosing to follow His laws and decrees and live upright, integrity-filled lives that are pleasing to Him. I declare Jesus reigns above all the universe, our hearts, and the state of our government. I decree people everywhere are praying for America and the nations…Jesus, have your way in us!

Prophetic encouragement: I see the tide turning as Godly women and men are being elected to positions at all levels! I see believers coming out in record numbers to vote! I see justice being served in this election cycle. Let it be so, Jesus! Amen.

Song: God Will Work It Out/ Maverick City Music

Scripture: 2 Chronicles 20:14-17

Then the Spirit of the Lord came on Jahaziel (a prophet). He said, “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.  Tomorrow march down against them. They will be climbing up by the Pass of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the gorge in the Desert of Jeruel.  You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.”

Prayer: Jesus, we give thanks to you with great praise, for your love endures forever! Therefore, we can pray, be still, my soul. God’s got this! Thank you, Jesus, that the battle is yours, and deliverance is on its way! Help us, Jesus, to hold our position in prayer while we march against evil and stand firm and mighty in you. Help us to remember you and your resurrection power at the cross. Lord, encourage us not to be dismayed nor afraid. We will remain hopeful and courageous, for we are on the winning team even as we face evil in our culture! It’s in Jesus’ holy and powerful Name we pray. Amen.

Decree out loud: I decree as I pray against evil, sing, and praise, the Lord will set ambushes against the wicked, and they were defeated. I declare the battle is not mine, but the Lord’s. I decree I will stand firm and see His deliverance!

Prophetic encouragement: I see God’s beloved’s faith rising because He has proven Himself faithful over and over again! You will go out and come back, rejoicing in what God has done for you! America will be saved! Hallelujah!

Day 46 “52 Days of Prayers To Rebuild America!”

Day 46 “52 Days of Prayers To Rebuild America!”

Song: Jireh/ Maverick City Music

Scripture: John 6:29 (NIV)

“The work of God is this: to believe in the one He has sent.”

Jesus replied, This is the work (service) that God asks of you: that you believe in the One Whom He has sent [that you cleave to, trust, rely on, and have faith in His Messenger]. (AMPC)

Prayer: Jesus, you are the One, and only God sent to people everywhere. You are the One who saves us from our sins. You are the One who loves us despite our sins, evil ways, and idol worshipping. You are the One who grants us redemption when we ask for forgiveness! You are the Bread of Life, our very sustenance and provider through the hard and great days! Jesus, please help us to set our hearts on you alone and BELIEVE you are God’s Son sent to save us from ourselves and eternal separation from you! All glory, praise, and honor unto you! Amen.

Decree out loud: I decree and believe you, Jesus, as you say, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35) I declare your remnant understands the deeper meaning of you, Jesus as our Bread of Life: we rely solely on you, and we cleave ourselves to you! I decree You alone satisfy us and give us real life today and eternally!

Prophetic encouragement: I see believers of Christ staying close to Him like never before! We are on Jesus’ team now, and He is helping us overcome our sins and darkness. Believers everywhere are walking in freedom with the Spirit by the faith they have in King Jesus!

Day 45 “52 Days of Prayers To Rebuild America!”

Song: Lion/ Elevation Worship

Scripture: Nehemiah 6:15-16

“The wall was finished—just fifty-two days after we had begun.  When our enemies and the surrounding nations heard about it, they were frightened and humiliated. They realized this work had been done with the help of our God.”

The Lord has given you a specific task, a calling, your destiny to be proactive with! Every believer has a part to play in these last of days. We will not back down when the enemy tries to stop or detour us! We can all pray, decree, praise, revere, and worship Jesus! As pastor Tim Sheets says, “Spend your influence!” Use what is in your hands to further the kingdom of God here on earth! Your labor and intercession are making a difference!

Prayer: Jesus, the enemy, tries to intimidate us, imagining he could discourage us and stop the work you have for us to do. Help us to continue your work with even greater determination, as Nehemiah did. Let us rise up with perseverance, strength, and joy in you! As the enemies tried to frighten the Israelites as they built the wall of Jerusalem, thinking, “Their hands will get too weak for the work, and it will not be completed.” They were wrong because you are our God of victory! We pray as Nehemiah prayed, “Now strengthen my hands.” (Neh. 6:9) Thank you, Jesus, for hearing our prayers! Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.” (1 Chron. 29:11) How we praise and thank you, Jesus, for the battle is the Lord’s! Amen.

Decree out loud: I decree the enemy is losing his nerve when the prayer intercessors pray and decree in faith! I declare his schemes are backfiring and will turn around for God’s glory and be a major detriment to all his demon forces. I declare greater is Jesus in us than he who is in the world! I decree with great adoration and love, “Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours.” (1 Chron. 29:11) Amen.

Prophetic encouragement: I hear a great backlash against the enemy as believers throughout the world say “enough is enough” in prayer and decrees! I see and hear Jesus roaring as the Lion of Judah coming in His great glory, protecting His remnant. He is breaking off and stopping evil agendas and wicked people. Justice is here!

Day 44 “52 Days of Prayers To Rebuild America!”

Day 44 “52 Days of Prayers To Rebuild America!”

Song: Revelation Song/ Phillips, Craig & Dean

Scripture: Revelation 13:11-18 (The MSG) This occurs after Christ’s followers have been raptured. (Taken up to Heaven with Jesus) The mark of the beast occurs during the tribulation.

“I saw another Beast rising out of the ground. It had two horns like a lamb but sounded like a dragon when it spoke. It was a puppet of the first Beast, made earth and everyone in it worship the first Beast, which had been healed of its deathblow. This second Beast worked magical signs, dazzling people by making fire come down from Heaven. It used the magic it got from the Beast to dupe earth dwellers, getting them to make an image of the Beast that received the deathblow and lived. It was able to animate the image of the Beast so that it talked, and then arrange that anyone not worshiping the Beast would be killed. It forced all people, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to have a mark on the right hand or forehead. Without the mark of the name of the Beast or the number of its name, it was impossible to buy or sell anything. Solve a riddle: Put your heads together and figure out the meaning of the number of the Beast. It’s a human number: 666.”

Prayer: Jesus, we pray against the mark of the beast, the Antichrist, during the tribulation period. Thank you for your prophecy, the foretelling of what will happen. God, we pray people will receive you before the rapture occurs, so they will not have to endure the tribulation period! For those who accept Jesus as their Savior in the tribulation time, I pray they realize they are NOT to take this mark upon their hand or forehead in any form. It might be a tattoo, a barcode, or a microchip implanted into the hand or body. Lord, how I pray people to receive you and your eternal life and not give their allegiance to Satan by getting the mark of the beast! Thank you, Jesus, for your love, power, and might! Amen.

Decree out loud: I decree I am one of God’s holy and passionate and part of His remnant! I decree we will faithfully stand our ground. I declare people are awakening to their great need for Jesus and receiving Him as their Savior! Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners! (1 Tim.1:15)

Prophetic encouragement: I see a billion-soul harvest and reformation happening across the land! I see people praying the prayer of salvation, asking Jesus to be the Lord of their life and for forgiveness of their sins. I see the water of baptisms being stirred! I see people who are radically set free from addiction, bad habits, self-loathing, and a life filled with evil! Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus, for your redeeming love!

Day 43 “52 Days of Prayers To Rebuild America!”

Song: When I Look At The Blood/ Pat Barrett

Scripture: 1 Cor. 11:28 (Phillips)

“No, a man should thoroughly examine himself, and only then should he eat the bread or drink of the cup. He that eats and drinks carelessly is eating and drinking a judgment on himself, for he is blind to the presence of the Lord’s body.”

Walls spiritually in the Bible have many meanings, including protection, strength, restoring our relationship with God, hardened hearts (Rev. 3:1-3), and a call to introspection. One way to strengthen our “spiritual walls” is to take Communion with great reflection. We can fortify our walls; we must strengthen the walls of our hearts and rededicate ourselves to His ways and His life, honoring Him above all else.

Prayer: Jesus, how we need you and desire to honor and worship you as we partake in Communion: the eating of the bread and drinking of the blood. (the juice) Thank you, Jesus, for breaking your body, so we may be healed. (Isa. 53:5) Thank you for pouring out your blood, washing our sins as white as snow. Thank you, for by your blood, we are drawn near to you. Thank you, we can enter your throne room of grace with confidence to find mercy in our time of need! We remember you, Lord Jesus! We love you, and thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Decree out loud: I decree as God’s ecclesia, people are looking into their own hearts carefully, asking for forgiveness and forgiving others and themselves. I see and declare surrender and gratitude on believers’ faces as they take Communion at church, at home, and at family gatherings. I see and decree Jesus and His heart of love exalted high with great honor and reverence in the beloved hearts. I declare the church drawing nearer and nearer to Jesus for such a time as this!

Prophetic encouragement: Get alone with Jesus, meditating upon His great love, mercy, and forgiveness. Draw near to Him and know His loving presence. Thank Him for His great surrender at the cross and obedience to God, His Father. Thank Him for saving your life with His holy blood. (Read Luke 22:14-20)
