Every moment a follower of Christ spends praying and fasting is a mighty day in Heaven and on earth. Maximum spiritual power is turned on through fasting, Jesus revealed this secret in Matthew 17:21 and Mark 9:29 (“this kind only goes out by prayer and fasting“).
Today I will simply share how we prayed this morning in our home. It went something like this:
Father, we praise You. You are pure and great, big enough to handle any issue we bring with a mere thought. Thank You for loving us and hearing our concerns.
We bring the needs of our nation before You today. This is Your land, a land of refuge given to Your people, Israel of God. Please protect and strengthen Your chosen leaders for this time. Guide them in Your ways. Protect their families. Keep evil away from them.
Let attacks without cause on our leaders fall away to nothing. Let truth, conspiracies and perpetrators be revealed. Let no lie stand. Only the truth.
You kept Pharoah’s army away from Your people, Israel, by the uplifted arms of Your leader, Moses, and drowned their enemies in the sea. God make our prayers today as uplifted arms on behalf of our leaders and nation, and deliver us from the army that constantly wars against us.
Father, give our leaders wisdom and a way to guard our borders without turning away people in true need. We want to keep our arms open to the hurting, but prevent entrance to those with evil intentions.
Please deliver the innocent from wicked hands. Inspire our nation to value life.
Please stir Your people to holiness and make us a mighty army of faith, standing in the gap for our nation. We ask You stem the tide against us as long as You will it and place our nation in Your hands. We trust You.
In the precious name of Jesus our Savior,
God bless everyone praying, and fasting, for America today, and God bless America!
