Retracing the Covenant – York, PA
In York, Pennsylvania, the home of the Continental Congress for a season during the Revolutionary War, and where the Articles of Confederation were drafted, we found the Appeal to Heaven flag proudly displayed. We also prayed at the building where our currency was first printed, as well as the building where the first communications were printed. We decreed that “mercy is our new currency” (in fulfillment of a vision) and that the voice of the Lord was now returning to our land (in fulfillment of Chuck’s prophetic word to us).
“Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!” (Isaiah 6:8; NASB)
“For from days of old they have not heard or perceived by ear, Nor has the eye seen a God besides You, Who acts in behalf of the one who waits for Him.” (Isaiah 64:4; NASB)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
God never planned for us to be worshipers and ministers only inside the walls of church buildings. We are the legislators, the Ekklesia, the Church! Notice that our founders established a national government, established a national treasury and were the media. Pray that the Church would get outside the walls and make a difference!
Say Isaiah 6:8 to the Lord.
Read Isaiah 64:4. Ponder what He has really created You for and ask Him how you partner with Him, get out there and make a difference.
Thank the Lord for mercy over America now. Intercede that His voice would become more clear in the land. Ask Him to speak through You into your arena of influence.
A prayer you can pray:
God, we feel safe inside the walls of our churches. The enemy has lied to us and said that that is where we belong. But, that is not the way You think! You designed us to expand Your Kingdom everywhere You lead us. Our founders knew this and weren’t afraid to establish government and financial systems. They were the “mind-molders” of society, as they put the news out about the new government and helped the people understand it. Here I am, Lord, send me into this culture. Help the Ekklesia to understand that according to Isaiah 64:4, we don’t go alone, but You are acting on our behalf as we stay in close communication with You. How can we fail? May Your voice become more and more clear in the land as You speak Your wisdom through Your Church into every arena of society, Jesus. Amen.
The nation will change as God’s people get out there in the world and BE who they were created by God to be!
