I invite you to join me each day as we pray for our nation until the election crisis has resolved. I’ll be reading the daily Give Him 15, making comments, and then we will pray together. You can join me here as we Appeal to Heaven for America.
Deliver the Package
Esther was a lovely and strong young woman. She listened to the wise counsel of Mordecai, her uncle, who was a type of the Holy Spirit. He provided her with counsel and direction, and made sure she was brought before the king at the right time. He had no way of knowing in advance that Haman’s evil plan was in the works to destroy the Jews, but he did know what to do when it became evident. I am sure he sought the Lord for guidance, which he passed on to Esther. However, she had to decide if she would risk everything to carry out that plan.
Once Esther took her step of faith, things the king could not yet see began to be revealed. Her obedience caused the king to be able to see, hear, discover, and take action. Haman’s plan was foiled. He was hung on the gallows he had prepared for Mordecai. And the people of God were granted the ability to fight back against their enemies, thus being preserved as a nation.
This is an incredible story that seems to be playing out in America today. We, the praying church, are playing the role of Esther. The Holy Spirit is guiding us. Our obedience in intercession is causing our enemies’ plans to be revealed. Our prayers are encouraging those in secular positions who need strength and encouragement – President Trump and so many others. I believe judges and Supreme Court justices are also being prepared to judge with wise and righteous judgments. Time is growing shorter to resolve so many election discrepancies, but God has a plan. We are carrying it out in prayer. Be thankful, prayerful, faithful, faith-filled, and obedient. Don’t waver. Watch for every sign of this turning and be grateful at the news. God can save America just as He saved the Jews in the time of Esther.
My friend, Clay Nash, dreamed the morning of December 3rd that the pager POTUS gave me went off with 2222. (Two years ago he dreamed that the President gave me this pager to alert me that prayer requests were about to be sent. The number symbolized Isaiah 22:22. Clay has since dreamed several times of this occurring.) Dutch’s phone rang from a blocked number; it was President Trump. He asked Dutch if he could handle the delivery of a package. The President instructed that it must be shipped from the Gerald R. Ford Aircraft Carrier quickly as it was time to reposition the ship to the point where the Ohio empties into the Mississippi. (He has dreamed of this aircraft carrier three times. It always represents air superiority--in other words, authority in the spiritual realm.) The Ohio River meets the Mississippi at the city of Cairo, IL, which means “victorious.”
He thanked Dutch and stated at times his hope wavered but he kept reminding himself of all the prayers of the praying church. He stated that those prayers were keeping him encouraged and focused on finishing well. He asked prayer for his wife and family as they were very weary. He then stated that no matter what lay ahead, he was all in.
He then told Dutch that he had received a letter from George Washington and all that it said was, “It still works.” (This is a reference to an earlier dream in which George Washington represented a group of intercessors the original Appeal to Heaven flag and said, “It still works.”
The meaning of the dream is clear. The authority/prayers/spiritual warfare of the church are needed to deliver what is required for victory in this battle. Appealing to heaven still works! Like Esther, we will make the difference, exposing the evil plans of Haman through our prayers and decrees.
“The Jews had light and gladness and joy and honor. And in every province and in every city, wherever the king's command and his edict reached, there was gladness and joy among the Jews, a feast and a holiday. And many from the peoples of the country declared themselves Jews, for fear of the Jews had fallen on them.” (Esther 8:16-17 ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Give thanks and pray for those who have been faithful to intercede through this lengthy battle.
Thank the Lord you are a part of this Esther army “for such a time as this.”
Declare, “God will save America from wicked plots, even as He saved the Jews in the time of Esther.”
Call for a swift move of cases through the courts. Call for a swift and true resolution of this election. The package will be delivered!
Continue to call forth the restoration of God’s covenant with America.
Keep believing for and praying for the Third Great Awakening and the great harvest of souls.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, we speak blessings over the praying church, Your Esther in America today. We are those that are pressing in to carefully hear the voice of Your Holy Spirit in our day. We come before You day by day and hour by hour to hear and intercede for the salvation of America. We bless this mighty praying army, raised up by You for such a time as this. In our generation, bless these that are sacrificing so much for the future of our people. Save us from every evil “Haman” plan, even as You saved the Jews in Esther’s day as she interceded before her earthly king. Lord, we worship You. We glorify You and exalt Your Holy Name. We want only Your ways in our nation.
Move on our behalf. Let the cases be solidified and heard. Let them move through the courts as swiftly as possible. Let no man stop what You have ordained! Let the package be delivered. Give us victory. Give POTUS strength. Give the legal teams strength and insight. Expose all corruption in this election. ALL of it! Thank You for granting our request, Great King Jesus. Amen.
As an Esther army in our day and age, we say, “Haman will hang from his own gallows and the purposes of God will live and reign in America!”
