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.

Perseverance in Prayer Can Shift this Election’s Outcome

In my book Intercessory Prayer, I made a statement that is very relevant for the time we are in now. I wrote, “Anyone long associated with the Church in this century, especially in America, knows that our problems do not result from a lack of information or material strength. If we fail in achieving what God asks from us as we run our race, it will be a failure of heart and spirit.

As we all know, we could almost drown in all the misinformation the news sources are spewing out at us currently. CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, The Washington Post, and now, even Fox News, are working hard to try to get Americans to think this election is settled and Joe Biden will be our 46th president. Regardless of the fact that elections are never settled by the news media or the public’s opinion of who won a race, media is gaslighting America trying to force us into accepting what in their minds is “inevitable.”

Chuck Pierce recently gave a Word to be careful not to listen to them. Their united, sly messages are backed by demonic spirits that will lull us into complacency and defeatism. If we give in to them, we would lose our ability to persevere. We must hold fast to what God has been saying. We must listen to Holy Spirit and remember the words of the prophets. And we must not stop interceding! For those who have their prayer language, pray in tongues more frequently, because Holy Spirit knows exactly what needs to be prayed, even when we don’t. Regardless of the method of prayer, we absolutely must stir up faith and engage in fervent intercession, persevering until we have a victory! There is no option.

It requires faith and patience to continue interceding long past the time others stop. Galatians 6:9 tells us, And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary.Choose to be one of the champions—examples of the faith—showing forth the stamina to pray until the answer comes. Ignore all the noise and incessant chatter all around you. Stop watching or reading the news if you have to. Consider what will be necessary for you to remain focused and war without ceasing until this victory is accomplished. How can justice prevail if we cannot persevere for it?

I promise you and your children and grandchildren that your persevering in prayer, our long hours of praying in the spirit, our many decrees and declarations for the next few weeks all will be worth the effort. History is waiting to be written and “history belongs to the intercessor.”

One of David’s three mighty men was Eleazar, son of Dodo of Ahohi. Eleazar stood with David when they defied the Philistines who had gathered there to fight. The Israelites retreated, but Eleazar stood his ground. He killed Philistine soldiers that day until his arm grew tired, but he never dropped his sword. The Eternal One gave them a decisive victory that day; and then the people came back, only to pillage the fallen.” (2 Samuel 23:9-10; TheVoice)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Decree, “The lies proceeding from the mouth of the mainstream media will be ineffective! Truth will prevail; the deception and lies will fail. We, the praying church, declare it.”

  • Make a decision to be one who shuts out the noise, and fervently perseveres in prayer over this election until every matter is completely settled. Say, “I will pray, regardless of how long it takes!”

  • Consider that the future of America, God’s covenant with her, and the heritage of our children and grandchildren is hanging in the balance! Declare: I am determined not to stop praying until we have obtained her victory over every force against the purpose of God for America!”

  • Pray for the advisors around President Trump--his cabinet members, lawyers, external advisors, Republican congressional leaders who advise him--that they would have wisdom, courage, and perseverance.;

  • Proclaim, “We will finish!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we ask you to expose the mainstream media’s lies and twisting of the truth to fit their narrative. Render ineffective their gaslighting the stream of lies they propagate. Reveal the secrets of your enemies, God! Expose all darkness and deception regarding this election.

Lord, help us to shut out these falsehoods from our eyes, and to listen for Holy Spirit in this season. We will listen to only those You direct us to. And we will pray! Give us strength and wisdom to ignore every report that disheartens us and could cause us to give up. We are determined to pray, regardless of how long it takes to secure this election victory. We realize the future of America is at stake. Give us strength, Lord, to persevere in prayer until we obtain victory.

Please encourage President Trump, Lord. Keep every voice of doubt away from him. Let encouragers and those with Your strategies be found around him now. Cause him to seek out those who hear Your voice. Give him confidence that Your plans will succeed. Grace us all who stand fast until we have completely secured the victory! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The church will persevere in intercession and decrees until we have secured this election and our nation’s history—past, present, and future.
