Liberty to the Truly Captive

“At this moment young American girls are being trafficked into the sex trade.  Today, I joined five of these girls for a tour of the Holocaust Museum.  This was their first look into the life of Anne Frank, a young girl much like them, trapped in a life she didn’t choose or understand.  Today, five young girls are beginning to understand they have an opportunity to embrace life, one that Anne Frank never had.” Alisa Jordheim 1

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Declare the captives of the sex trafficking industry shall all be set free in the United States of America. No more sex trafficking of women and children on our land!

  2. Ask the Lord to fully restore each set-free captive and to set them on the path of the destiny He has created for them.

  3. Intercede that the calling America has to be a protector of children will be fully redeemed.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we say America is a nation founded on freedom and liberty.  We call forth those held captive in the sex trade into that freedom, freedom from physical bondage, emotional bondage and hopelessness. We call them into their God given destiny. We declare that America is a nation called to protect its women and children and will rise to the role of a protector!

Today’s decree:

I decree that America will be a nation free from sex trafficking!

The Ekklesia is Rising

We must not depend on the government to fix our nation, nor place our hope in the next president. The Church must rise up and become the ekklesia (a legislative assembly or government) of heaven and charge into this next prayer movement believing that if we are faithful to pray, God is faithful to respond. Let’s get on board with His plan to raise up a great surge of prayer this year and turn this nation around.

“Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means rock), and upon this rock I will build my church (ekklesia), and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.” (Matthew 16:18; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Look again at the teaching by Dutch and the scripture verse. Notice that the Lord was saying He was going to build a “legislative assembly” on the rock that was Peter. That’s what the Church is supposed to be. Stop and think about this.

  2. Now, stand up legislators, and proclaim the Word and the Will of God in your prayers and intercession.

  3. Look at news reports today, ask the Lord what to decree and feel a new power in your prayers.

  4. Call a friend and ask them to legislate in the heavenlies together with you, for where two or three are gathered in His Name, He is there in the middle of things.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, praying for this nation is about to change! As Your ekklesia rises up and does what You have planned for it to do—legislate in the heavenlies—things in the earth will need to line up with Your will. Justice will prevail, righteousness will no longer be trampled on and evil will not be called good. The things that matter to You will begin to manifest in the natural and the world around us will change and begin to glorify You! Amen.

Today’s decree:

God’s Ekklesia is realizing who they are, prayer is changing, and the prayers of the Ekklesia are about to change everything!

God Is Not Finished With America

Now, more than ever, our nation needs you—standing in the gap to release audacious Spirit-led prayers, bold decrees and radical prophetic acts to shift America back toward God’s dream for her. We were destined to be a bastion of light and hope for the nations of the earth. And while the prognosis within our borders seems grim, God is not finished with America.

“And now, Lord, hear their threats and give us, your servants, great boldness in preaching your word.” (Acts 4:29; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Tell the Lord that you are willing to boldly stand in the gap for this nation.

  2. Pray that this nation would be the “bastion of light and hope for the nations of the earth” that He created it to be.

  3. Get out your Bible and pray Psalms 75 out loud while you dream of all that the United States could be.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I am volunteering to be one of those that you use to stand in the gap and pray for this nation. Fill me with boldness as I do. Cause the United States of America to be a “bastion of light and hope for the nations of the earth.” Hear me pray Your own words in Psalm 75 back to You. (Pray Psalm 75 out loud to Him.) Remove those who would block Your plans and raise up those who would cause Your plans to come to pass. In Jesus’ precious Name, Amen.

Today’s decree:

The United States of America will fulfill her destiny to be a “bastion of light and hope for the nations of the earth!”
