God of the Impossible, Our Hope is in You!

Much has been said of late about angel armies. My brother, Tim Sheets, has written an incredible book on this topic. We cannot do what needs to be done in this hour without these powerful warriors. It is comforting to know they are helping us. And it’s also important to know we can ask for their assistance.

I am writing this post on my way home from Washington, D.C. Recently I was given a prophetic word that on my next visit to DC, the archangel Michael would be going with me. I waited for confirmation of when to take this trip and received it Friday night. Saturday morning I flew to DC to release prayers and declarations, asking the Father to release Michael and his war army. I have no doubt that was accomplished.

A novel was released 30 or so years ago entitled, This Present Darkness. It was a book depicting how our prayers actually release angels to do what they need to do. I believe this. Please keep praying. Continue appealing and the Father will continue to respond; one way He will do this is by assigning angels to help us.

While we were in DC, one of the team members I have been working with received a message from an intercessor. Paraphrasing it, in order to shorten it, the message said, “I don’t know if any of the team you pray with is at the Willard Hotel in DC, but if they are, Holy Spirit says it is significant and they are in the center of His will. The Battle Hymn of the Republic was written there.” Amazingly, though they did not even know we were in DC, we were, and we were staying in this hotel. They shared some words of this powerful song. Holy Spirit confirmations are so powerful they just can’t be made up!

As we looked at the words, we realized they could have been written for today. This anthem reached its zenith of popularity during another season of national division and conflict, the Civil War. The great sin of that era was slavery. Today’s sin is 63 million babies slaughtered in the womb. God brought America through that devastating season, as terribly painful as it was. He will do so now in our season of difficulty and darkness.

The song dates back to November 1861 when during the Civil War, Julia Ward Howe traveled to Washington, D.C. She reviewed the Union troops and met with President Lincoln. One night during Howe’s stay at the Willard Hotel in Washington, DC, she “awoke in the gray of the morning twilight; and as I lay waiting for the dawn, the long lines of the desired poem began to twine themselves in my mind.” She scribbled down the poem on a sheet of paper before she could forget. The poem was published in February 1862, in slightly altered form, as the Battle Hymn of the Republic, a title chosen by the editor of The Atlantic Monthly. These words, inspired by a drawing from the Bible, became the battle cry of a nation at war.

The Battle Hymn of the Republic

“Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;

He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;

He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;

His truth is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!

His truth is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;

He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat;

Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him; be jubilant, my feet!

Our God is marching on.”

“So wake up, you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny! Welcome the King of Glory, for He is about to come through you. You ask, “Who is this Glory-King? The Lord, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, invincible in every way! So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny! Here He comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in. You ask, “Who is this King of Glory?” He is the Lord of Victory, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts! Yes, He is the King of Glory!” (Psalm 24:7-10 TPT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank God for His faithfulness.

  • Praise Him for the angelic assistance He provides for us as we go to battle.

  • Give praise to God for His mighty power to save and deliver us.

  • May we allow God to sift our hearts, making sure there is no sin, that we are clean before Him.

  • Commit to the Lord that you will not retreat, but will continue moving forward in your prayers and intercession for America.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we thank You for Your amazing angels. Thank You for assigning them to help us in our endeavors; to encamp about us and keep us in all of our ways; to assist us in our assignments for You. Thank You especially in this season for the great warrior, Michael. Thank you for assigning him to this battle. We know he will help us prevail.

We thank You also for the coming great revival that is about to be released, coming to the earth. You have said You are going to transform nations and save a billion people in this unprecedented outpouring. We know You plan to use America in this great revival. We need to be a strong nation for this, a free nation, and a prospering church. We thank You for the President we have had for the last 4 years whom You put there to strengthen the Church. We ask You to give him 4 more years. We pray for President Trump and his family. Lord, touch him, encourage him, draw him near to You. Protect his family from harm and hide them under the shadow of your wings.

And Lord, thank You for the confirmation regarding the hotel and The Battle Hymn of the Republic. We decree that Your truth is indeed marching on. Your truth is part of our armor. Your glory is coming to America, and Your glory is going to release lightning against Your enemies to expose darkness and break strongholds. We ask You to do this aggressively, and quickly. And now Lord we decree over this nation that we will not be destroyed by this hatred and division. We will not lose this battle. We will prevail. We are more than conquerors through You, we always triumph in Christ.

God of the impossible, we ask You for a miracle. We ask You for big changes this week. We ask that You shake our nation until everything not founded on the Rock will be shaken loose and exposed. Greater are You in us than he who fights against us, and You have given us victory. We war from Your exalted position of authority. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Decree:

The King of Glory, the Commander of Heaven’s Host is visiting America this week!
