A Call to Prayer

In my last post I shared a warning dream my husband had which greatly concerned me. I felt kind of depressed for a couple of days and then I realized, the battle is not over; I have to get up and pray and believe the Lord to help us and that He will be faithful, no matter what the circumstances.

The Bible says that we know in part and we prophesy in part (I Corinthians 13:9), meaning that none of has the full revelation from the Lord, but each person may have a part and when you put all the pieces together, you get a more complete picture. I have heard several other people who have also had warning dreams, like my husband, but I have also heard some encouraging words. One of the words I heard Robert Henderson say (on Patricia King’s Youtube channel) is that “with information there comes an assignment”. Often when the Lord gives someone a warning dream, He is showing what the enemy has planned, what can happen if we do not pray, and there is no intervention. On the other hand, if we do pray and intercede, there can be a different outcome.

I listened to Kevin Zadai on the Sid Roth Show (It’s Supernatural or ISN) talking about how he had a 5 hour visitation with the Jesus and He showed him the next 11 years in heaven. He said the Lord showed him that if God’s people did not rise up and pray and begin to take authority over the enemy, things would get very bad for the Christians in America , but, if on the other hand, God’s people will begin to get serious about prayer and taking authority over the enemy, we can have a much better outcome. He said that the Lord showed him that if the Christians would seriously pray and do warfare against the enemy, President Donald Trump would be re-elected, Roe Vs. Wade would be over-turned and many very wicked people (corrupt politicians) would go to prison for their crimes. He also said, that the Lord showed him that He had several projects for him to do over the next 11 years. This gave me great encouragement to keep on praying and believing the Lord for a good outcome.

The Lord has been inspiring many Christian leaders to raise up prayer movements to combat the enemy and pray God’s will into the earth. Patricia King has started a Firewall USA prayer movement where people can sign up to pray for one hour a week. Our prayer team prays on messenger on Monday and Thursday nights for 1/2 to 1 hour, twice a week. I am encouraging everyone to do whatever you can. Patricia King has posted on her Firewall website a list of things to pray over our country to bring us into alignment with God’s word and His will.

Many people seem to be of the belief that whatever happens is God’s will, but the truth is that the Lord gave authority over planet earth to mankind in the garden of Eden (Genesis 1:28, Psalm 115:16) and when Adam and Eve chose sin, they gave Satan authority in the earth; that is why he is called the “god of this world” and “the prince of the power of the air” (II Corinthians 4:4, Ephesians 2:2). In Matthew 16:18-19, Jesus said: 18 “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church and the gates of Hades (powers of hell) shall not prevail against it. 19 “And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” In the original language, heaven is plural and in Ephesians 6:12, it is referred to as heavenly realms or places. Ephesians 6:12 says: For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. So Satan’s authority is in this world (planet earth), the atmosphere around the earth (the 1st heaven) and outer space (the second heaven, or heavenly places). The Apostle Paul referred to the place of God’s throne as being the third heaven (II Corinthians 12:2).

Clearly, the Lord is telling us we are in a spiritual war and we are His deputies. He has given us the weapons we need to fight against the enemy; a spiritual armor and power to bind and loose, but we have to put on the armor, take up the weapons and contend for God’s will in the earth. Jesus won the battle on the cross and restored authority to the Christians, but now it is up to us take the authority He gave us and use it.

Jesus taught His disciples to pray for God’s will to be done in earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10). We know that there is no sickness or disease in heaven and Psalm 91:10 says that for those who dwell in the secret place of the Most High, 10 No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling (NKJV). That doesn’t mean the enemy won’t try to put it on you, but we can begin to say the word of God out loud and claim that for our household and I believe the enemy has to obey it, when we know what our rights are and proclaim it in faith (and I have experienced this for myself). Another term for binding and loosing is forbidding or allowing. I believe that we can forbid or bind the corona virus and any other plagues and say that they have no authority in our communities or our country, but especially in our homes.

Also, pray for the conviction power of the Holy Spirit to sweep our nation and the world. II Peter 3:9 says that God is not willing that any should perish but all should come to repentance. We need to continue to pray identificational prayers of repentance for all the sins of our nation, because repentance removes the enemy’s authority (Daniel 9:1-19). Also, we can take authority over the spirit of lawlessness that is behind all the rioting, looting, burning and violence in our nation. II Thessalonians 2:8 refers to the antichrist as the lawless one. This is an antichrist spirit and we can rebuke and bind this spirit in our land.

I Timothy 2:2 tells us that we are to pray for all who are in authority that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence (NKJV). Clearly there is a great battle going on over who will be in the White House. This is not really a Republican or Democratic issue, it is a matter of what party or candidate most closely supports Biblical values. I cannot in good conscience vote for anyone who supports abortion of unborn babies and the rest of the ungodly agenda that many represent. So we need to pray for God’s will to be done in our government and vote.

The scriptures tell us what God’s will is and He also reveals His will through prophetic dreams, visions and words (which will always line up with scripture if they are from the Lord), so pray according to scripture and the revealed will of the Lord and also, if you have received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, I encourage you to pray in tongues. Romans 8:26-27 tells us that we don’t always know how to pray as we should, but the Holy Spirit interceeds for us according to the will of God. If you have not received this gift, I encourage you to pray for it. It will increase your prayer life tremendously. God bless you all.
