70 Days – Righteousness Exalts a Nation – Day 44
GiveHim15 will be collaborating with Love Ministries in a very special 70-day prayer focus. We are going to take a stand for righteousness in the United States of America from February 9th through Passover, April 19th.
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34; NASB)
REBUILDING THE WALL OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IN OUR NATION, STATES, AND TERRITORIES – 52 Day State Prayer Focus: Day 26: Arkansas, June 15, 1836
“Let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16; NASU)
“Awake, north wind, and come, south wind! Blow on my garden, that its fragrance may spread abroad.” (Song of Solomon 4:16; NIV)
“Catch The Wind“ I am strong and full of life I am steadfast, no compromise I lift my sails, to the sky I’m gonna catch the wind I’m gonna catch the wind I am bold, no fear inside Spread my wings, open my life Like an eagle, whose home is the sky I’m gonna catch the wind I’m gonna catch the wind Your faithfulness will never let me down I’m confident I’ll see Your goodness now I know You hear my heart, I’m singing out There’s nothing that can stop Your goodness now
Like standing on the edge Of a mountainside I can feel the wind stirring Lifting me up high I was born into freedom I was made to fly I am strong and full of life I am steadfast, no compromise I lift my sails to the sky I’m gonna catch the wind.

A prayer you can pray:
Father, we come into agreement with Your kingdom plan and purposes for our nation and State of Arkansas. Arkansas, you are going to get to taste and see that I AM is good. There is a righteous voice rising out of your governmental mountain that is leveraging and advancing My Kingdom. Great Wealth is stored within you.
“Arkansas, there is a South Wind blowing into your boundaries. It is time to arise and stir up the passion for His presence as never before. There is a new release of praise from your people which is validating Arkansas’s rededication to Me, Your Lord. Those outside your borders will begin to invest and build upon the walls that are on the sure foundation. Arkansas as my South Wind you are to become a gate-opener to this Nation. As you go and move out as a forerunner, those that have ears to hear and eyes to see with fall in order and follow, the synergy of the ages will be seen in magnificent manifestation. Oh, Arkansas, as a little one you will become as a thousand and as a small one you will become as a strong nation. The Lord says, ‘Arkansas, you have come into your time and I will hasten your destiny, so ready yourself for your suddenlies.’” (Clay Nash/Dutch Sheets)
“I heard the Lord say that Arkansas is going to be a fire and glory state. Writers are coming from this state that are going to impact the Nations. Preachers that have been developed and been in the hidden place these past seasons are about to be released and are about to make a major impact. There are going to be some prophetic voices-some teaching and equipping. I saw an anchor over this state. Because Arkansas has a governmental authority for the nation that this is going to be a state that anchors the turn for America. We are about to step into a move of God. The Lord said, ‘Don’t underestimate Arkansas. Don’t underestimate the wells that are going to come from this state. Don’t underestimate the worship that is going to be released.’ I believe it’s a time of re-digging but it’s also a time of new digging. Get ready, Arkansas, because he has positioned you and where it has felt quiet, there has been a percolating underneath the surface. It is a boiling point, it’s a tipping point…” (Word Over Arkansas, Christa Smith, 2/7/19)
Arkansas, your appeal to heaven has been heard. Your time has come! In the name of Jesus, Amen.
The 70 Day Decree:
Lord God, we present ourselves unto You a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1). We acknowledge and declare that we are filled with the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:11). Your Word tells us that righteousness exalts a nation (Proverbs 14:34). We stand before You in the land You have given us, and we decree and release the righteousness of Christ into our territories, spheres of influence, our cities, states, and nation in order to bring healing, revival, awakening, and reformation to America. Father, let Your Spirit of righteousness be released and established in us, and in every place in which You have given us jurisdiction. Let Your righteous Kingdom come and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10)! Prepare the soil of this nation and realign us with Your righteousness! In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
