Air Superiority – Part 2

Sir Arthur Harris said this about his plan to lay down extreme air fire power against the Nazis, “Victory, speedy and complete, awaits the side which first employs air power as it should be employed. Germany, still enmeshed in vast land campaigns, cannot now disengage her air power from those places for a strategically proper application. She missed victory through air power by a hair’s breadth in 1940. We, ourselves, are now at a crossroads. We’re going to scourge the Third Reich from end to end. We are bombing Germany city by city and ever more terribly in order to make it impossible for her to go on with the war. That is our objective and we shall pursue it relentlessly.” His idea turned the tide of the war.

“As you learn more and more how God works, you will learn how to do your work. We pray that you’ll have the strength to stick it out over the long haul—not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory-strength God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy, thanking the Father who makes us strong enough to take part in everything bright and beautiful that he has for us.” (Colossians 1:11-12; MSG)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Worship Jesus, the King of our glorious army!

  2. Declare that all the fire power of God is being released against the enemy through the prayers of the saints.

  3. Ask God to refresh the army of God. Pray for the pastors, the leaders, and the intercessors.

  4. Intercede for the hidden intercessors who are praying alone at home, hidden in the courts of the Lord and faithful to the cause of Christ and prayer. Ask God to richly bless them and let them know the end of the promise of 2 Chronicles 7:14 is just about here!

A prayer you can pray:

We lift high the Name of Jesus! We say the back of the serpent is broken and the ruling sword has been released against the enemy. The air superiority will remain in place as long as it’s needed. Lord, reinvigorate every prayer ministry in America. Revitalize every church in America. Every praying pastor and every intercessor, give them refreshing now! Refresh all those intercessors that are hidden away that only You know. Give them courage. Give them encouragement. Let them know they are coming into the second half of 2 Chronicles 7:14. Fill them with joy, Jesus, and let them finish well! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that Jesus will provide the grace, strength, joy, and courage to the Ekklesia to keep bombarding the enemy and the courts of the Lord until the battle is completely won!
