Sent Into A Famine

“We may have bought into a theology that says He’ll always send us somewhere where there’s plenty. And sometimes the greatest compliment He can pay us is to send us into a famine and to say, “If anyone can handle that, you can.” Some of us were born for this America! We should respond with, “If You sent us here to redeem this land, we’ll go fight for every square inch of it!” (Damon Thompson)

“So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran. He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated and the people they had acquired in Harran, and they set out for the land of Canaan, and they arrived there. Now there was a famine in the land.” (Genesis 12:4-5 & 10a; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. America is beginning to experience a move of God—more every day. However, the land is still very dry and there is a famine of the fear of the Lord, which leads to godlessness. Identificationally repent on behalf of America and ask the Lord to send His refreshing rain of the Holy Spirit in the form of His Church taking action – a multitude of raindrops.

  2. Pray that the Lord would break the famine of godless government off the nation.

  3. Ask the Lord to break the famine caused by immorality off of this nation.

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Lord, America is experiencing a famine of the Presence of God and all that Your Presence causes to bloom. We are God-less and suffering the lack of fruit that comes with ignoring You. We need the rain of Your Holy Spirit to change this nation. Cause Your Church to be filled with Your Spirit and soak the ground with prayer. We pray for God to be honored in government, welcome in school, and that the fear of the Lord would break immorality off our land! In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

God is sending those He trusts into the famine-cursed parts of America, so His Presence in us can turn things around!
