Government Cannot Take Our Place
We must not depend on the government to fix our nation, nor place our hope in the next Supreme Court Justice or any other individual. The Church must rise up and become the ekklesia (a legislative assembly or government) of heaven and charge into this next prayer movement believing that if we are faithful to pray, God is faithful to respond. Let’s get on board with His plan to raise up a great surge of prayer this year and turn this nation around.
“Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means rock), and upon this rock I will build my church (ekklesia), and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.” (Matthew 16:18; NLT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Look again at the above teaching by Dutch and the scripture verse. Notice that the Lord was saying He was going to build a “legislative assembly” on the rock that was Peter. That’s what the Church is supposed to be. Stop and think about this.
Now, stand up “legislators”, and proclaim the Word and the Will of God in your prayers and intercession.
Look at news reports today, ask the Lord what to decree and feel a new power in your prayers.
Call a friend and ask them to legislate in the heavenlies together with you, for where two or three are gathered in His Name, He is there in the middle of things.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, praying for this nation is about to change! As Your ekklesia rises up and does what You have planned for it to do—legislate in the heavenlies—things in the earth will need to line up with Your will. Justice will prevail, righteousness will no longer be trampled on and evil will not be called good. The things that matter to You will begin to manifest in the natural and the world around us will change and begin to glorify You! Amen.
God’s Ekklesia is realizing who they are and prayer is changing!
