Day of Rest and Day of Protest

The Inauguration is over and now the bold new administration can begin. However, today there will be a day or two of rest for President Trump and Vice President Pence. Events are planned where conveners would love the new President to make an appearance, but there is no guarantee he will be out and about. Right up the street, near the U. S. Capital, the Women’s March on Washington will take place. This protest was planned to be the “Million Woman March”, however, a maximum of 200,000 women are now planned for. There may be additional small protests, as well.  Offsetting these protests, the Inaugural Prayer Breakfast, will take place in another part of the city and David’s Tent will continue to lift up worship over the city at their site near the Washington Monument, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

“’Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” (Isaiah 24:10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Pray that this would, indeed, be a day of rest for President Trump, Vice President Pence and their families.

  2. The enemy will be looking to cause chaos and upheaval, but command order and peace over protest events. Intercede that they will not become violent or express any anarchist actions in any way.

  3. Use the Isaiah 22:22 keys and shut the door to anyone who should not be in the city!

  4. Pray that nothing would hinder prayer and worship over the nation. Pray specifically for The Inaugural Prayer Breakfast and the worship at David’s Tent, as well as Inaugural prayer meetings happening in various cities across the nation today. Pray that God would richly bless those involved for keeping the fire on God’s altar burning bright in America!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we pray that You would give President Trump and Mike Pence and their families a day of rest today. They have a very busy road rising up to meet them. What the enemy means for evil in our nation, we pray that You would turn for good. Let the hearts of the people be heard, without our government bowing to forceful demands. We pray that protests remain peaceful. Let Believers across America make this a day of out loud worship to our God and King! We magnify Your Name, Lord Jesus, and call You the Ruler over America. We will have no King but Jesus! We look to You to grant grace to our governing leadership. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will lift up the Name of Jesus in worship over Washington, D.C. and the nation today and wash Washington with our praise!
