Shaking Off the Slumber

Zechariah prophesied to Zerubbabel saying, “This mountain in front of you is going to be brought low and become a plain. Not by might or power but by my Spirit, you will tear it down with shouts of grace, grace!” This is a picture of what God wants to do in America! If the church wakes up from her slumber, heeds the voice of the prophets and begins to partner with righteous government leaders to take her stand, the Lord will make a way for our nation’s biblical foundations to be restored. His glory will fill our land once again. God’s desire is that you would contend for and see revival in your city and nation!

“Then he answered and spoke to me, saying, ‘This is Yahweh’s word to Zerubbabel, saying, ‘Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says Yahweh of Armies. Who are you, great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you are a plain; and he will bring out the capstone with shouts of ‘Grace, grace, to it!’’” (Zechariah 4:6-7; WEB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Our nation has many “mountains” (challenges). Think of a few. Write them down, if you need to.

  2. Say, “Who are you, great mountain?” Shout “grace, grace” to each one.

  3. Call for the Church to wake up and fully take our place in the realms of influence He opens for us.

  4. Decide to contend in prayer and action for His Glory to fill your realm of influence.

  5. Intercede that the biblical foundations of the nation would be restored!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, America is filled with challenges. Give me Your list. I say, “Grace, grace” to each of these “mountains”. Church, wake up! Members of the Body of Christ, take your places in your realms of influence. Choose to intercede in prayer and action until you see God fill your assigned area of society in your city, state or nation with His Glory! Jesus, restore the biblical foundations of our nation! Line things up with Your Word and Your plan. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree God’s grace and glory to the challenges that face this nation!
