From the “Retracing the Covenant Tour”: At Jamestown in 1620, family, church (Ekklesia) and government began to be established in America. We tapped into these covenantal roots and decreed that these foundational institutions of society would come back into biblical alignment. From there, we flew to Plymouth, the landing site of the Mayflower. Here, the Mayflower Compact was written, the first governing document of the colonists, which again stated our purpose with the phrase, “Having undertaken for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith…” At this amazing place, we tapped into the roots of righteous government, prayer, evangelism and generational synergy. The “First Nations” members of our team were very instrumental in all of our stops, but especially in these first few, as we felt we were not only retracing history, but healing it.
“But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.” (1 Timothy 6:11; NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Ask the Lord for the faith today to intercede for the healing of America’s history.
Where there was hope in the beginning for a future nation that honored Christ above all, remind the Lord of that moment in history. Repent for the generations that have lived since who rejected God and ask the Lord to visit us again.
Where government was once righteous, as governing leaders relied on God and His Word to lead them, identificationally repent for leaders today who refuse to seek Him. Ask the Lord to give our current leaders hearts that humbly turn to Him for guidance and direction.
Ask the Lord to sustain the recent outflow of unified prayer from the Ekklesia! May it result in a renewed nation and a fresh outpouring of evangelism and revival!
A prayer you can pray:
Oh God, grant me faith today to pray for the healing of America’s history. Our country was founded on a covenant between those early settlers and You. They knew You sent them here with a Sovereign purpose. Forgive us and especially our government leaders down through the years, when we have rejected Your guidance and direction. We need You to visit our leaders again. Soften their hearts and grant them grace to humbly seek Your wise leadership and renew our nation’s covenant with You. Let the Ekklesia continue in prayer and intercession until we have a nation that honors You! Thank You, Jesus. Amen.
We want to be those that intercede for the healing of America’s covenant with God!
