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!

Day 40 “52 Days of Prayers To Rebuild America!”

Song: Champion/ Maverick City

Scripture: Ephesians 6:13-18 (NIV)

“Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”

Prayer: Jesus, how we need to put on the armor of God daily. Belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness in place, feet fitted with the readiness to share the gospel of peace, shield of faith which protects our hearts from the onslaught of the enemy, helmet of salvation to help protect your mind and thought life, and the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God. Help us to always be praying for your believers, too!  Please remind us that our struggle is not against people but against rulers, authorities, and spiritual forces in the heavenlies. Jesus, help us to always be alert and teach our children and grandchildren about wearing these important war fare clothing. Thank you, Jesus, for you make us brave! You are our Champion! It’s in your powerful Name, I pray, Amen.

Decree out loud: I decree I am strong in Jesus’ mighty power. I put on His full armor with His full authority and am protected against the schemes of the enemy. I declare I will keep boldly praying for all the saints! I decree I will not wrestle against, nor will I go into a rant against people, but keep in mind our war is against rulers and demonic agendas in dark places!

Song: Surrounded (Fight Our Battles)/Michael W Smith

Scripture: James 4:2b

“You do not have because you do not ask God.”

“God opposes the proud, but He pours out grace on the humble.” James 4:6

Prayer: Jesus, you have called us to be a praying people and to pray without ceasing. Lord, sometimes we get tired, apathetic, and joyless. Please stir up within us, Holy Spirit, the desire to pray about all the issues of this life. God, there are so many, and evil is prevalent in our country. God, help us to be bold in prayer, asking for your divine wisdom, guidance, and intervention. God, we cannot muster up this faith ourselves; we need you to instill within us the desire to care, pray and intercede on our country’s behalf. Reignite our fire for you and your people! Jesus, help us to keep you at the forefront of our hearts, praying with the zeal of the Lord! Remind us, Lord, to put on the garment of praise, casting off the garment of despair. Thank you for moving on and hearing our prayers! In the Beautiful Name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

Decree out loud: I decree I am a praying person, and I care deeply about what happens to my family, children, adults, our country’s concerns, and the concerns of the nations of the world. I declare the joy of the Lord is my strength (Neh. 8:10), and He will help me to continue to persevere in prayer. I will not grow weary in prayer! In Jesus, I decree that I will stand strong and pray about what is on His heart.

Prophetic encouragement: I see prayer warriors increasing their prayers, fulfilling their assignment to pray! I see things changing because of the power of prayer, being united to the Word, our faith and worship, and our love of Jesus. I can see the look of joy on the prayer warrior’s faces when Jesus reveals to them how their prayers changed many courses of action for the better! Hallelujah!

Day 24 “52 Days of Prayers To Rebuild America!”

Day 24 “52 Days of Prayers To Rebuild America!”

Song: Raise A Hallelujah/Jonathan David Helser

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 10:4 (The MSG)

“The world is unprincipled. It’s dog-eat-dog out there! The world doesn’t fight fair. But we don’t live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will. The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity.”

Prayer: Jesus, thank you for giving us warfare weapons: prayer, praise, and worship, Communion, and fasting. Lord, remind us to employ these spiritual weapons every day!  God, we trust you throughout our days of living in the craziness of this world. Thank you, Jesus, for the supernatural weapons you have given to us.  We do not fight with the weapons the world uses. In fact, it is just the opposite. The believer’s weapons have the power of God to destroy the camps of the enemy. (2 Cor. 10:4, NIRV) Praise you! Thank you for the security and safety we have in you, our King of Kings, the Commander of the Lord of hosts! It’s in the strong tower, and the Name above all Names, of Jesus Christ, we pray, Amen.

Decree out loud: I decree overwhelming victory is ours in Christ Jesus who loves us! I declare we have the mind of Christ guiding our thoughts. I decree that we are casting out vain imaginations that are not of Jesus. I decree we will have spiritual, emotional, and financial peace because we serve Yahweh! The joy of the Lord is our strength! Hallelujah to our God!

Prophetic encouragement: I declare, “For the Lord your God is going with you! He will fight for you against your enemies, and He will give you victory!’” (Deut. 20:4, NLT) I see the warring angel armies all around, taking out the evil in our country! I see weary faces and downtrodden hearts looking up and realizing the battle is the Lord’s! Such joy and relief are on God’s beloved faces!

“52 Days of Prayers To Rebuild America!”

Nehemiah 5:14-7:73a tells us the Israelites rebuilt the broken down walls of Jerusalem in an astounding 52 days! We are in this window of time as well! August 14-October 4 is 52 days. Yom Kippur begins on October 4, which will be the fifty-second day! This meaningful Jewish holiday is a time to atone 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. It is interesting to note that Yom Kippur is later this year, as well as five other major Jewish holidays.

I trust that God is never late, and neither are these holidays. Could it be, God is giving us a little more time and one more chance to repent, turn from our wicked ways so He will cleanse our land of evil, and give America, and the Ecclesia the fortitude and courage to rise to her original God-graced position? The Lord is coming back for His remnant, His bride! She will not only be spotless, dressed in fine linen, but also full of courage, gratitude, and thanksgiving for her bridegroom, Jesus Christ! (Rev. 19:7-8, 21:2) The massive harvest of souls needs to take place as well! Wake up, sleeper! We have work to do!

Revelation 3:1-3 to the church of Sardis is sobering, “I know all the things you do, and that you have a reputation for being alive—but you are dead. 2 Wake up! Strengthen what little remains, for even what is left is almost dead. I find that your actions do not meet the requirements of my God. 3 Go back to what you heard and believed at first; hold to it firmly. Repent and turn to me again. If you don’t wake up, I will come to you suddenly, as unexpected as a thief.”

I hear the Father telling America to get down on her knees, to pray, and repent. I sense the Lord is asking us to fast according to God’s will and way. I believe we are to be fervently interceding for the USA for the next 52 days. As we pray, fast, and intercede, God will rebuild the walls of our hearts, our earthly bodies, renewing a right relationship with Him as we diligently and earnestly pray to Him. Here’s some encouragement: as we pray, remember what the number 52 means spiritually. It means liberty, liberation, release, freedom, deliverance, rest, reward, multiplication, and association or agreement.

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. (1 Cor. 11:28)

We can fortify our walls; we must strengthen the walls of our hearts and rededicate ourselves to His ways and His life. As we do so, God, the Lord Almighty, will create a “burst through!” 1 Chronicles 14:11, “David and his troops went up to Baal-perazim and defeated the Philistines there. “God did it!” David exclaimed. “He used me to burst through my enemies like a raging flood!” God creates amazing breakthrough and burst throughs as we pray, seek His face and fast.

Nehemiah had to handle continued opposition against rebuilding the walls.

Nehemiah 6:1-2a “Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem the Arab, and the rest of our enemies found out that I had finished rebuilding the wall and that no gaps remained-though we had not yet set up the doors in the gates. The doors not yet set up indicates prophetically what God opens; no one can shut. And, what He shuts, no one can open. ( Rev. 3:7-8)

(Nehemiah catches onto their scheme to harm him, but he stays focused). “But I realized they were plotting to harm me,  so I replied by sending this message to them: “I am engaged in a great work, so I can’t come. Why should I stop working to come and meet with you?”

Verse 4 Four times, they sent the same message, and each time I gave the same reply. 5 The fifth time, Sanballat’s servant came with an open letter in his hand.”

(We see more threats, bullying, and intimidation by the enemy, which is the same for us today).

Verse 9 They were just trying to intimidate us, imagining they could discourage us and stop the work. So I continued the work with even greater determination.” Nehemiah poured on the perseverance and focus!

Verse 11 “But I replied, “Should someone in my position run from danger? Should someone in my position enter the Temple to save his life? No, I won’t do it!” Nehemiah realized they were lying to him again. Then they would be able to accuse and discredit him.

Verse 15 The wall was finished—just fifty-two days after we had begun. 16 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 days. We will not back down when the enemy tries to stop or detour us! We can all pray, praise, and worship Jesus! As Tim Sheets says, “Spend your influence!” Use what is in your hands to further the kingdom of God here on earth! Your labor will make a difference!

As a believer, your decrees and declarations have great power in them because of Jesus’ resurrection power living within you! Your decrees have an invisible force that will hit a divine target. When you say your decree out loud, there is a shift or a move in the spiritual realm. Whether you can see this shift or not doesn’t matter, continue to believe Him as you speak God’s promises over America. Like Nehemiah and the Israelites, we continue to do His work of decreeing, praying, and believing God can!

So, remnant! Please join me! I will be praying, fasting, and interceding for America diligently and faithfully over the next 52 days! I’ll be posting daily on my WordPress page.

Psalm 33:20-22.

I decree safety, peace, and hope in you, God!

You are our help and our shield.

In you, our hearts rejoice,

for we trust in your holy name.

Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord,

for our hope is in you alone.”

I hear Holy Spirit say, Ecclesia, “It’s Go Time!” It’s time to be a prayer warrior! “Let’s Roll!”

Victory in Christ!
