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.
Today History is Made
Today is one of the most critical days in our history. This past Sunday, my brother, Tim Sheets, said, “The Holy Spirit has sent out an air raid alarm! Many intercessors are hearing it. It is a serious and immediate warning to now enter into fasting and prayer for America! God is letting me know that we were born for this exact time and He needs us on the wall now.”
The United States Congress will be meeting in a joint session TODAY at 1:00PM Eastern Time—both Senate and House of Representatives—in order to accept or reject the votes of the Electoral College presented on December 14, 2020. As a reminder:
7 states have sent 2 sets of Electoral votes, called “dueling votes.” They are Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico. Each of these states has been enmeshed in election fraud and provable reports of serious ballot-counting discrepancies.
More than 100 patriots in the House of Representatives, led by Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama, are planning to object to the electoral votes cast by the 6 contested states.
Patriots in the U.S. Senate were a little later to step forward, as Senate Majority Leader, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky actually warned Senators not to dispute the Electoral College vote. Despite this manipulation, Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri boldly stepped forward and stated, “Somebody has to stand up. 74 million Americans are not going to be told their voices don’t matter.” You can read his entire statement here on why he decided to buck the GOP leadership in the Senate and dispute the Electoral College vote. And as we told you Monday, since he boldly took a stand, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and 11 other Senators have joined him. Senator Cruz’s statement is strong and you can read it here.
As a reminder, it is the goal of the objectors, as described by Senator Cruz, “To immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states. Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission's findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed.” Upon conclusion of the 10-day audit and presentation of its findings, a vote based on factual evidence will determine if electoral votes in the 6 contested states are accepted or rejected.
The November 3, 2020 election has been an event that will forever mark this nation. Actions and plans we could not see before then have now been clearly brought into the light. However, the media has gaslighted the American people so severely that a large portion of the country still thinks there was no election fraud, others that there was not enough to make a difference. And, of course, some simply don’t care.
In the church, some are standing strong, while others have given up. There are also those who don’t believe it actually matters who is in control of government—that God’s purposes will proceed unaffected. This, however, certainly wasn’t the case in Israel’s history. A “man after God’s heart” (David) was needed to replace King Saul, who had no interest in the things of God – not even in honoring the Ark of the Covenant. The entire nation of Israel was, in fact, judged because of an episode of King Saul’s covenant breaking. The Jews of Europe in the 1940s probably wouldn’t agree with the “it doesn’t matter who is in government” theology; neither would the unborn babies of today. Ask the Christians of Turkey how the spreading of the gospel in their nation - and their well-being - has fared during the last few centuries under radical Islamist rule. Of course, it matters to the cause of Christ who is in control of government!
Today, let us be those who hold up the arms of the brave men and women of the United States Congress that will stand up and say, “This election had too many clear evidences of fraud and we want an audit of the election results in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico.” For the sake of our nation’s calling and future, dedicate this day to intercession for them. Many thousands of people, perhaps up to a million, have gathered in Washington, D.C., today to intercede onsite - outside the U.S. Capitol building, a Jericho March around the Capitol and Supreme Court grounds, and prayer in other locations. Whether you are physically there or not, pray today as if the life of our Republic depends on it. Indeed, it does.
And finally, pray for Vice President Pence. There is much debate over how much authority he actually has to stop the certification. One thing is certain, however, his name is coming to the top more and more as I listen to what intercessors and prophets are saying around the nation. He may be the most important player today; certainly, he is one of them. Pray intensely for him to be led by Holy Spirit in his decision-making.
“I am the Lord, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself, who foils the signs of false prophets and makes fools of diviners, who overthrows the learning of the wise and turns it into nonsense, who carries out the words of his servants and fulfills the predictions of his messengers.” (Isaiah 44:24-26 NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Dedicate this day to the Lord. Make it a day of humility and fasting. Take communion, if possible.
God is never late, but exactly on time. We have been fasting and praying, declaring, and decreeing, and now we find ourselves at this critical moment. Consider everything that has transpired and been brought out into the open during the 61 days since Election Day. Thank Him.
Pray for grace and strength for the brave patriot Senators and Representatives who will stand up today and demand an audit of the election results of Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico, before they agree to certify any Electoral College votes.
Boldly call for divine surprises in the House and Senate chambers today!
Pray that Vice President Pence does the right thing. Pray that he is strong and fearless. Pray that he moves in the fear of God, not the fear of man.
Declare that the intercession of the saints of the Most High God, and the righteous decrees of His prophets, will ultimately determine the outcome of these elections.
A prayer you can pray:
God, we humble ourselves and pray on this historically, significant day in America. You have brought us to this day. So much has been brought out from under the cover of darkness; alliances and motives have been revealed. Thank You! Yet some Governors, Secretaries of State, and State legislatures have ignored all of the fraud in the 2020 elections. Judges and Justices of the United States Supreme Court have rejected cases brought before them that could have resolved violations of election laws. But thank you for the Citizens who have raised an outcry, some even conducting investigations of their own, causing their state legislatures to hold hearings regarding these matters. However, here we are on January 6th, Lord, with the Electoral College vote before our U. S. Congress—the members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives will be deciding our nation’s future today.
Lord, we boldly ask You to intervene. And we are confident You will! We war from victory. Cause a move of Your Holy Spirit in the House chambers where they will be meeting today. May Your angels also join them. Cause hearts to stir and let passionate and anointed pleas for election integrity be made at this late hour. Let the signatures of more than 100 Representatives and Senators be brought forward. Do not let them back down! In fact, cause even more of them to stand and make their public objection be heard. Courage can be catching! We ask that it would be so today. Give us Divine surprises today, Lord! Our future is securely in Your hands, as is the future of our children, our nation, and the free world.
Father, we pray for Vice President Pence. This may be his Esther moment in history. Please move on his heart in an undeniable way. May he know it is You. And give him the strength to do what he knows You are saying. And we break off of him all fear of man and release him to operate only in a holy fear of You.
Maker of all things, overthrow those today who have considered themselves wiser than You, rejecting and covering up all the fraud. Let their statements be seen as the nonsense they are. Carry out the words You have put in the mouths of Your praying church. Let them be manifested! Fulfill the decrees You put in the mouths of Your prophets. Shut the mouth of Leviathan, the spirit that twists truth. Let the battle for America’s future be turned today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
The voices of American citizens and patriotic members of Congress, who are standing up for righteous American elections, will be heard and the enemy’s plan overthrown today!
