America’s Place in History 


America has such an important place in history. Over time, God has drawn people of every color, creed, and tongue to this nation. He has a Divine purpose for each one He draws here and each makes a contribution to our country. Those that were brought over in slavery or duress were brought under demonic systems that He has been helping us to correct over time. His plan is for all of us to come together. We must walk in forgiveness and embrace our calling together. Let those of us in Christ who know this calling say together, “We as a people and a nation are called by God to take the Gospel around the world.”


That statement is more than a message of simply, “Jesus loves you and will forgive your sins.” It is a message of wholeness. It’s the message of the Gospel and of the Kingdom. The more we embrace His message of wholeness in scripture, the more we will correct societal ills. We can correct poverty, human trafficking, get our medical care right, and help other nations around the world more effectively, among other things. It is not that we are trying to “Americanize” everyone. It is the Gospel message of wholeness that brings freedom, healing, equality, and eternal life to all the world.


The more Believers know that God raised America up for a Divine purpose, the more we are able to intercede with confidence for our nation to fulfill that purpose. We can also confidently enter into spiritual warfare against the enemy who is trying to stop it from being fulfilled. Believers can rise up in a place of determination and say, “I will not let America’s destiny be stolen! I won’t let the failures of the past mean that we have become completely evil and we need to just start all over.” At that point, we would be giving up our Christian heritage. We would be prioritizing humanism and other demonic doctrines that would take our nation on a path completely away from what God intended. We can’t let that happen.


Today, everyone is welcome in America. We enjoy many freedoms here. People are free to worship any way they want here within the law. Even atheists are welcome here. That does not change the fact that we are a Christian nation. We cannot allow our freedom and our destiny to be stolen from us. Our God-given destiny is incredible and we must know that and fight for it! God raised up this nation! We will see its purpose fulfilled if we will continue to intercede, and do not lose heart and give up.


“Then your light will break out like the dawn, and your recovery will speedily spring forth; and your righteousness will go before you; the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.” (Isaiah 58:8; NASB)


Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for this great nation and the wonderful heritage He has given us.

  • Thank Him for making us a melting pot of people from every nation—a beautiful display of the Bride of Christ.

  • Say, “We as a people and a nation are called by God to take the Gospel to the nations, both here and abroad.”

  • Thank the Lord for the many freedoms we all have the privilege to experience in America. 

  • Declare, “I will not let America’s destiny be stolen!”

  • Worship Him and declare that His Glory will reign over us!

A prayer you can pray:


Lord, You have made us a wonderful nation. Today, we are looking past the darkness and into the good things this country represents. We are one of the greatest nations on earth. You established us to fulfill the Great Commission. Not only have You always sent us to other places with Your Good News, but You have also brought to us those from many other nations. We are made up of every tongue and tribe and nation by Your Divine design. What a beautiful heritage! We worship You for it! 


Your Word and Your principles are the foundation we have been built on. We will never make apologies for that. Neither will we deny it or desire to change it. People from around the world long to come here and live in the wonderful freedom we have. It is so easy for us to take it for granted, but it is unique in the world and must be carefully stewarded and guarded. We will not let America’s history, freedom, or destiny be stolen! 

God, to You be the Glory for this great country! Glorify Yourself in and through this nation. Let Your Glory reign over us and let all of the nations see that You are our Savior, our Protector, and our Defender! We worship You, Jesus! Amen.


Today’s decree:


America will spread the Gospel message that brings freedom, healing, equality, and eternal life to all the world.
