Thankful for a Firm Foundation
“I am calling you to a retracing…for seven days you will retrace where My covenant has been established in this land. From that I am determined to bring My voice back to be heard in this land again…Take a team and retrace…Decree that My voice will be heard again in this land.” In fulfillment of this prophetic word to me through Chuck Pierce, I recently convened a team of 13 (including myself) and embarked on this “retracing” prayer tour – 7 cities in 7 days. We began at Cape Henry, where Robert Hunt and company landed in 1607 and planted a cross on the beach. “From these shores the gospel shall go forth, to not only this new world, but the entire world,” Hunt declared, prophesying the destiny of America. We re-staked claim to this destiny and partook of communion, the covenant meal, as we did at every stop.
“The LORD said to his people: ‘You are standing at the crossroads. So consider your path. Ask where the old, reliable paths are. Ask where the path is that leads to blessing and follow it. If you do, you will find rest for your souls.’ But they said, ‘We will not follow it!’” (Jeremiah 6:16; NET)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
God sent His men and women to America’s shores long before it was a nation. They came to escape religious persecution, to spread the Gospel and to expand His Kingdom. Thank the Lord for the brave souls that came before us.
Thank the Lord that He established this nation to honor Him! Stop and think about that for a minute.
Repent for how far from God’s ideals this nation has fallen.
Ask Him to help us find those ancient paths and walk in them once again.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, I thank You for the men and women who braved so much to come to our shores with a vision from You to expand Your Kingdom in this new world! Wow! Give me a minute to think about that. Let the revelation of that reality lead me to worship You! Our nation has fallen far from that vision. Please forgive us, Lord. Thank You for granting us mercy—another chance to get things right! Get us back on Your path for America and let us fulfill Your heart’s desire in our generation! In Jesus’ name, we say amen.
We will find the ancient paths—the sure foundation of our nation—and follow them!
