He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13,14

Luke 18:14 …….for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

It seems appropriate that we should be praising God for what has occurred at the midterm elections. We prayed and we watched as God moved in a way seemingly impossible. The entire structure of the Congress and Senate was changed in a day. Our God has given us one last chance to proclaim the Name of Jesus throughout the land. If we fail to do that, we will be worse off than what we would have been without the election miracle.

Don’t lie to yourself….God and God alone did this. He brought forth deliverance because his people called out to him…They humbled themselves and prayed and sought him, and turned from their wicked ways. They prayed again and again and they fasted, they watched as God went to battle for America.

I thought back to the Democratic convention and remembered how there was a major call for God to be added to the platform and it was voted down, and voted down and then forced into acceptance. The hearts of those who booed the addition of God to their platform…..Well, It was a sad day for America, when part of the nation turned away from him….officially!

Today we have a new group of people who will be taking their place in the halls of congress…but it will not officially occur until January. Between now and then especially we are in a very dangerous time. It is the time when those who have lost their foothold will be in utter rebellion to the wishes of the American people who voted to stop the fiasco that is Washington DC. It is a time where anger and vengeance will rise and whatever can be done to undermine the action of God and the people will be done. It may be an “in your face” rebellion or it may come more in stealth…but it will come.

Our job as Christians, is to not allow the rebellion to destroy our nation. We must pray all the more for God to intervene in the lives of the leaders; both those who will leave office, those who have been defeated and those who will take their rightful places in January. This will be a dangerous time because those who have suffered this defeat will be more vengeful than ever before. This is the spirit of antichrist who came to kill, steal and destroy.

We can see clearly that God is on the side of America…He has given us one last chance to proclaim the Name of Jesus in our land. Failure to do so will bring destruction to our nation. We must pray that the name of Jesus is proclaimed across Capitol Hill and in the White House. There is no other name given, by which salvation comes.

Today, we must declare in our own lives that we will pray for the lawmakers, the leaders, the justice department, the president and vice president and their advisors. We must pray that their eyes will be opened and their hearts softened so that we have a future nation of freedom for our children and generations to come.

We must also go to battle against the powers of darkness which seek to destroy this nation. What an affront to those powers to see their power slipping away. Satan fights all the harder when he knows his time is short.

Today, I ask you to Pray for America…Thank God first for the battle he waged on our behalf on election day and continues to wage. The Battle is the Lord’s. Praise him for the people he has chosen to represent us. Pray they will be full of honor, truth, justice, compassion and character that honors God.

Stand your ground. Declare victory over the powers of darkness. Declare that evil will not prevail. Declare that God is in control even over Washington DC, the Congress, the government, the leaders, the white house.

Use your authority to bind and loose….Use your authority to cancel the enemy’s plans and reveal those plans in the light so that everyone can see. Pray that people will awaken to what is happening in our nation and will not be so focused on their own issues but will hear of, and see, the actions of those who seek to destroy. Pray for Wisdom from God that we may see and know what is coming and Wisdom to know how to pray. I am reminded that when WE DON”T KNOW HOW TO PRAY, we can ask the HOLY SPIRIT to pray for us.

So many times, I have no clue how I should be praying…I am guessing you struggle with that too. I do know that God gave us his Word, and praying what HE says is effective, and Trusting him to keep his Word, may be difficult for us (don’t we all want to call the shots?) God knows what we need, how we should pray, when we should pray and what the outcome of our prayers will be.

As Frank Peretti infers in his book…”This Present Darkness”…the darkness is real, and the prayers of the saints hold back that darkness.

Let us stand in the gap for America, and hold back the darkness by hearing and praying and doing what God instructs us to.

Here is my prayer for today….Join me if you choose, but it is always your choice.

Lord Jesus…Oh Most Holy God…How we thank you for intervening in our nation’s election. We sought you and prayed and fasted and asked forgiveness for our sin, and turned from our wicked ways, and you heard from heaven and forgave our sin and are healing our land. We give you all the praise and all the glory for this mighty move. We are not deceived! YOU and only YOU accomplished this action.

Father, we stand in the gap for America, for our Children and Grandchildren and generations far off, we stand for the hope in You. We stand that the mighty Name of Jesus…that NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES will be proclaimed throughout the land. We stand lord, when the powers of darkness try to kill us, to steal from us and destroy us. We stand with our armor on…fully clothed in your Word and protected by the blood of Christ which was shed for us. We stand with the Word of God as our Sword of the Spirit and we stand with our Shield of faith, wearing shoes of peace, a belt of truth, a helmet of salvation and a breastplate of your righteousness. We stand unafraid….courageous in this battle over right and wrong.

We ask for you protection in this battle. We ask for your protection over our families, our homes, our animal and pets, and all the “stuff” you have given us. We ask for protection over our nation, from any person or persons, terrorist groups, false religions, evildoers, liars and cheats, deceivers, revenge seekers and any other evil entity.

We declare and decree that America is one Nation belonging to YOU, and YOU are our strength and our future. YOU are our hope, YOU are our help in times of need, YOU are our giver of Wisdom, and YOU provide knowledge to those who seek it. Father we pray that we will ALL seek your wisdom and knowledge and we will ALL seek YOU.

In that Name above all Names, JESUS, we cancel all the plans of the enemy to destroy us. We declare that no weapon formed against us (Ourselves and our nation) shall prosper or prevail. And we sing praises to you Lord God.

In the words of Psalms 149, we are filled with joy in knowing you, and we take the authority you have given us to execute repayment upon the heathen and to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. We stand in the gap…We declare it accomplished…We give you all praise and declare your Glory to the Nation! We pray that your TRUTH will rise, and your GLORY fall upon us!

We pray these prayers for Israel…Oh Lord let there be peace in Jerusalem…and Father we pray for our brothers and sisters in foreign lands who are being killed all the day long in the most horrific of ways. We pray for your courage to fill them, fear to be far from them, and your witness to touch the hearts and souls of those who take their lives. We proclaim the Great and Mighty Name of Jesus…Amen and AMEN

Psa 149:1 Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
Psa 149:2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Psa 149:3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
Psa 149:4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
Psa 149:5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
Psa 149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;
Psa 149:7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
Psa 149:8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
Psa 149:9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
