Strong Families 

”In raising and instructing our children, in providing personal and compassionate care for the elderly, in maintaining the spiritual strength of religious commitment among our people—in these and other ways, America’s families make immeasurable contributions to America’s well-being. Today, more than ever, it is essential that these contributions not be taken for granted and that each of us remember that the strength of our families is vital to the strength of our nation.” Ronald Reagan

“Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him. For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just, so that the Lord will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.” (Genesis 18:18-19; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. God has a plan for families. Thank the Lord for a minute for all of your family members and say a heartfelt prayer for each family member that comes to mind.

  2. If you have a family that has been more of a challenge than a blessing in your life, ask God to move to reveal Himself to those in your family that need to know His love for them.

  3. God designed families to be the fabric and strength undergirding a nation. He wants each current mature generation to pave the way for the coming generations. Pray that decisions adults make now both morally and governmentally will lay a God-fearing foundation for future generations and families in the United States of America.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I thank you that You say in Your Word that you designed families to teach and train the next generation in Your ways. A nation can only be strong when our families are strong. Moral decay and divorce are tearing our families apart. I pray for each of my family members that they would know You and know the love You have for each of them. (Pray a personal prayer for each of them by name.) I pray they will make God-fearing decisions for their lives and in the voting booth that strengthen this nation. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

Today’s decree:

God, strengthen America’s families, so that our nation will have a strong foundation for the future!

Strong Marriages

The very first thing God did after He created the heavens and the earth and all that would fill them was to create a wife for the man He had made. He made Eve for Adam, a perfect complement to him. He made a companion, a lover and a future mother. He called this arrangement good. God later called this relationship a marriage and said that it models the relationship between Christ and the Church.

“For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. 32 This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church.” (Ephesians 5:31-32; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Thank God that He instituted a deep love relationship between a man and woman called marriage that would show us the depth of relationship He wants to have with His Church.

  2. Pray for your own marriage, if you are married, and for every marriage you know. Pray for every marriage on your street. Ask the Lord to strengthen the love between the couple, to renew the love in the relationship, if need be, and to make the marriage strong against outside influences.

  3. Ask the Lord to make the Christian marriages you know truly be an example of Christ’s loving relationship with His bride, the Church.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I thank you for creating an intimate relationship between a man and a woman called marriage. I pray for the marriage of (pray for the marriages you know one at a time, including your own, if you are married.) I pray this marriage would be loving and respectful. I pray that the couple would work together to have the kind of relationship that no outside influence can penetrate. I pray against divorce and ask you to help these couples forgive one another on a daily basis, letting their love and commitment to one another heal any pain. I pray that the Christian marriages I know would be examples of Christ’s love for the Church. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God desires marriages between a man and a woman to be strong and filled with love and respect and to serve as the example of the relationship between Jesus and the Church.

The Declared Word Will Accomplish His Will

We will pluck up. We will tear down. We will uproot and dismantle the structures that have ruled our nation. We will pray the Word of God out loud and watch a shift begin. Then, God is going to give instructions to declare passages from His Word that will build up the ancient paths He established. He will show us what to declare that will firmly plant the seeds of His purpose for our nation.

“See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.” (Jeremiah 1:10; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Ask the Lord to forgive you if you have prayed “safe” prayers. You know, those prayers that ask Him if it is His will for someone to be healed or saved or for circumstances to change. We usually pray that way out of fear or doubt and unbelief. Sometimes we have been disappointed by God.

  2. Recommit to the Lord that if He said something in His Word, He means for that to be His will. Ask Him to make you bold in your proclamation of His Word.

  3. Pray with confidence that ungodly laws in your state and in this nation will be reversed and that laws will be instituted that please Him.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, forgive me when I have prayed for Your will to be done when I know what Your Word says is Your Will. I acknowledge that sometimes I am afraid I will not be praying Your will. Sometimes I am afraid You won’t answer right away and I will be embarrassed. I am so sorry, Father. When you say something in Your Word, I can count on it being Your Will. The timing is not mine and the way You choose to answer is not mine, but the faith-filled declaration is all you ask me for. I desire to be obedient to You and just boldly declare Your Word! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Today’s decree:

I will boldly declare God’s Word and tear down worldly structures and laws, while proclaiming the building up of our nation according to His Word!
