Agreement in the Final Day of the Esther Fast
“Shockingly, the Women’s March was only a first shot across the bow. In reality, an alliance of spiritual anarchy is presently being unveiled in full defiance of a ‘We the People’ electoral result and biblical truths that undergird our nation. With a disturbing brazenness (and the consent of the media), the dark underbelly of anarchy issued a global summons to employ witchcraft and curses against President Trump, his cabinet, and those aligned with a biblical worldview. This made plain what we have known from the beginning: Spiritual battles cannot be won on the playing field of protests and political arguments. Only the Church has the answer to such an unprecedented manifestation of witchcraft. According to Derek Prince, the Persian advisor, Haman (the adversary in the Book of Esther), practiced divination through the casting of lots, thus clearly aligning himself with demonic spiritual powers in his plot to destroy the whole Jewish population in the earth. Esther’s response, a 3-day, no-food-no-water fast, was the nuclear option of her day. It was an act of desperate dependence on God, the only thing capable of breaking the dark powers being channeled by Haman’s witchcraft. ‘Esther and her handmaidens’ led the whole nation in an intense period of fasting and prayer for three days leading up to Purim. Amazingly, dark schemes at the highest levels of government were exposed. Esther’s fast effectively reversed the curse and shifted the whole public policy of the Persian Empire in favor of the Jewish people. I cannot stress this enough: we are in a similar day and a cataclysmic battle for the soul of our nation. We cannot live the same way we lived yesterday.” (Lou Engle)1
“The Lord, Who makes you, bought you and saves you, and the One Who put you together before you were born, says, “I am the Lord, Who made all things. I alone spread out the heavens, and I alone spread out the earth. 25 I allow trouble to come on the special things done by men who lie and speak in pride. I make fools out of those who tell the future using their secret ways. I turn back wise men, and make their learning foolish.” (Isaiah 44:24-25; NLV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Pray for the breaking of witchcraft against President Trump.
Pray for the agents of wickedness to be exposed and removed from their positions – Esther 7.
Pray that Christians would repent of any alignment with darkness in their attitudes and words towards those in authority.
Pray that those inciting violence and unrest would be stopped.
Intercede that the younger generation of women and girls would rise up and be trained in the ways of Esther.
Ask the Lord that upright women would be granted positions of influence in their homes, churches and civic realms.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, we pray that President Trump will not be affected by any form of witchcraft coming against him. We ask that all agents of wickedness in any form would be found out and removed from their positions. Lord, let Christians repent of any place we may have aligned ourselves with darkness. Let us check our hearts and attitudes toward authority and repent, if need be. We command the violence in the nation to stop! We intercede for our women, young and old, to be graced with favor and influence, so they can take their places in history. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.
We decree that God-fearing women of God are rising up to take their positions of influence in this nation.
