Glory to the Name of Jesus!

“Let the whole earth sing to the Lord! Each day proclaim the good news that he saves. Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does. Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise! He is to be feared above all gods. The gods of (the) nations are mere idols, But the Lord made the heavens! Honor and majesty surround him; Strength and joy fill his dwelling. O nations of the world, recognize the Lord, Recognize that the Lord is glorious and strong. Give to the Lord the glory he deserves. Bring your offering and come into his presence. Worship the Lord in all his holy splendor. Let all the earth tremble before him. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken. Let the heavens be glad, and the earth rejoice! Tell all the nations, ‘The Lord reigns!’” (1 Chronicles 16:23-31; NLT)

Our God is Holy! His Son is worthy of our worship! He sent His Holy Spirit to help us. Glory to His Name! His righteousness is from everlasting to everlasting! He reigns over our lives and over our nation! We have just finished 70 days humbly petitioning, declaring, decreeing, prophesying, and worshiping His Holy Name over our states and nation! We have called righteousness into this nation. Now, we must walk it out. This is impossible without His redemptive work on the cross. So, we thank Him and praise Him and declare His Goodness to us. His righteousness will save our nation!

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Let us sing to the Lord! Worship with Upper Room Dallas’ version of “Jesus Paid it All.”

  2. Proclaim the good news that He saves!

  3. Declare His glorious deeds. Speak out loud the amazing things He is doing.

  4. Give to the Lord the glory he deserves. Tell someone about Jesus today. Tell them how he saved you, healed you, delivered you, re-made you, provided for you. Tell someone they can know Him like that, too.

  5. Say over the nation, “The Lord reigns over America!”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, may this nation, the United States of America, lead the way in showing forth Your glory among the nations! We have a reputation as a Christian nation, but we seem far from that reputation. We pray that we have experienced a reset over the last 70 days. Our hearts have turned toward You in a new and deeper way. State by state, we proclaimed Your righteousness over America. State by state, we reminded ourselves of the words You have spoken over us. You have made promises to us that have been stirred in our hearts once again. Jesus, You gave everything for us, now work all Your work of righteousness in us. We glorify Your marvelous Name! We will make Your deeds known, as we encounter others who need to hear about You. We will tell the lost, You save. We will tell the sick, You heal. We will tell the addicted, You deliver. We will tell the poor, You are Provider. Lord, You reign! You reign over our lives and You reign over America! You reign, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree: The Lord reigns in America and His righteousness will save our nation!
