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.
God Will Use a Remnant Filled With His Brave Heart
The next few days are going to be very significant. Four days from now there will be a joint session of Congress where they will either accept or dispute the electoral college votes. State legislatures are deciding whether or not to rise up and dispute the fraudulent votes. The President is facing difficult decisions regarding whether or not to employ certain options. And the courts are deciding on what to do regarding various cases (including how to “dodge” them). My brother, Tim Sheets, has a message we all need to hear as we press in, intercede, and fast.
“We must end the delusional thinking that it takes a majority to change things. It does not. That kind of thinking can demoralize us. We think thoughts like: ‘What can we do? We will never get everyone to work together and do this.’ However, we have to understand that in the Kingdom of God, though we may be smaller in number, the odds are in our favor. In God’s battles, numbers don’t decide victories and they never have. What we need more than numbers are passionate warriors who will not give up the fight.
“Jesus said the Holy Spirit would be with us, in us, and that He would always give us the advantage. Christ uses a remnant of high-impact people with courage and resolve who are anointed by the Holy Spirit to become history-changers. This is the era for the remnant warriors - historymakers - to arise and be who God says we are. We are to do what God says we can do.
“In the American Revolution, history teaches that only one-third of the people in the young colonies were Patriots. One-third were Loyalists—those remaining in support of the British throne and its bully government. The other 40% did not care one way or the other. Sadly, that is the picture today, as well. It is also a picture of the nominal church; far too many just don’t care. The remnant is bearing the burden by themselves, and this is causing needless hardship and delay. Nevertheless, it won’t stop us.
“More than numbers, the early Patriots had a depth of conviction that we are going to have to display in 2021. We must. They were unflinching in their resolve, committed to freedom and liberty. They had faithful endurance, passion, and heart for a cause that would bless their children and future generations of children. Sacrifice was embraced as a virtue; it was honorable, and they changed their moment of history. Because of their resolve, we are the United States of America, with a solid Republican form of government, that has lasted more than 200 years.
“It is consistent throughout scripture that God only needs a remnant. Consider Gideon’s 300 - they faced thousands. Though they were not many, God anointed them to win a battle that restored seven years of lost harvest. There were only 120 at the Upper Room, obediently waiting for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. They were not many, but they were enough and turned their whole world upside down. Miracles were prevalent and a great harvest occurred. They defined their moment in history - the church was birthed.
“The remnant God has to work with today is far more than 120. It’s millions! Think of the stand we can make in this new era. We can change a nation; we can change our world. We must never get to a point where we think God can’t do a particular thing. He sometimes uses only one, as He did when He gave David the ability to kill Goliath and save Israel. Think what He can do through millions. I not only believe He can do something. I believe He will.”
“David answered, ‘You come at me with sword and spear and battle-ax. I come at you in the name of God-of-the-Angel-Armies, the God of Israel’s troops, whom you curse and mock. This very day God is handing you over to me... The whole earth will know that there’s an extraordinary God in Israel. And everyone gathered here will learn that God doesn’t save by means of sword or spear. The battle belongs to God—he’s handing you to us on a platter!” (1 Samuel 17:45-47 MSG)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Consider historical and biblical remnants used by God to bring about His purposes. Let faith arise in you.
Declare, “The patriotic remnant will arise and, together with Holy Spirit, will save America once again!”
Ask the Lord to remove all corruption, injustice, and demonic presence from the halls of our government.
Pray for the complete cleanup of each branch of government—the Executive, Congress, and the Judicial system.
Decree, “The future of this nation will be secured.”
A prayer you can pray (by Tim Sheets):
God, come to America today. Come and strike against Your adversaries. As Your church makes a stand with You, as Your warriors rise, we will not look at numbers and we will not back down. We will draw up in faith and send forth missiles of Your Word. Come and remove the corruption. Remove the injustice in our justice system. Remove the corruption in our Congress. Remove the duplicity in our state houses. Come, Lord, and heal our land. Let Your Holy Spirit and His power synergize with the millions and millions of prayers that have gone forth into this season and into this election. Anoint them with power. Let those prayers become weapons in the arms of Your mighty warring angels.
Come to America. Come to our land. Let not the faith and resolve of our forefathers be wasted. Let the plans activated by the fires of hell, in darkness by lawless demons, fall to the ground now. Snuff them out. Let the Jezebel spirit influencing many in the halls of our Congress, those under her influence that want to hold government as their own, be routed now. Knock the corruption away. Batter it away in response to the prayers of Your saints. Let a remnant of legislators arise and do what they must to keep this nation on Your course. Remove the deception from their eyes, as we pray. Let them see how high the stakes really are. Let them watch how the bloodthirsty ones drool over the thought of illegitimately ruling there. Move them to do the right thing for the future of this great nation You have raised up as Your own. Thank You for acting on our behalf, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
The Lord has used a remnant of the Church to pray and He will act on these prayers. America will be saved!
