prayer priorities for America

Dear Prayer Warriors and Intercessors for America,

In June 2018, all across America and beyond, we are calling prayer warriors and prayer intercessors for America to join together in agreement in prayer. Please mobilize your pastor, your church, your denomination and your personal network of friends across America and the world to join us.

PARTICIPATE with thousands of Americans to use and follow this new resource called 31 Days of Prayer for My Nation from July 1-31. Please order this resource NOW by going here. Join Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and me as we lead this month of prayer specifically for our nation.

Just imagine what could happen if millions of Americans would intercede through agreement in prayer for America during these months. We need you to join us and mobilize your pastor, church, denomination and personal network of friends to join us. Spread the word now.

1. FATHER, BY FAITH WE ASK YOU TO MOVE UPON THE POLITICAL LEADERS IN AMERICA TO LEAD OUR NATION FORWARD IN A POSITIVE WAY.

“A king’s heart is like channeled water in the Lord’s hand: He directs it wherever He chooses.” Proverbs 21:1

Lord, as You have the power to control a king’s heart and direct it wherever You choose, please direct our President, Donald J. Trump, our Vice President, Mike Pence, our President’s Cabinet, our appointed and elected leaders in America, as well as those leading our nation’s Armed Forces…moving them in a direction You desire.

Holy Spirit, lead all of these leaders to work together strategically and specifically to secure all of the schools across America; O God, lead them to action that will protect the children of America.

Father, please lead our nation’s leaders as they move toward an unprecedented meeting with the leaders in North Korea and South Korea, trying to find a way to provide an avenue of peace and security for the world. O God, restrain evil and abuse of human life in North Korea, and move their leader, Kim Jong-un, to actions of peace and security in the world. Furthermore, we ask You, please ensure this meeting occurs with him and our nation’s leaders in Your timing.

O Lord, our needs are great, and we appeal to You for resolve, cooperation and leadership regarding the challenging issues of:

* America’s climbing debt
* Immigration
* Religious freedom nationally and internationally
* Healthcare
* Opioid and drug crisis
* Security of our nation internally and externally
* Ongoing challenges in Israel and in the Middle East, as the United States Embassy in  Israel has now been moved to Jerusalem
* Judicial and political appointments process to be expedited
* Tax reform
* Sexual harassment and abuse
* Sanctity and dignity of all human life from conception through death
* Racial unrest across America
* Needs of our veterans, our nation’s military and their families
* Ongoing investigations to reveal truth and a resolve be reached soon in each of them
* Election of leaders in the fall of 2018

This list could go on, but Lord, these specifically this month we place into Your hands. Please channel the hearts of our leaders to what is best for the American people as well as others across the world.

2. TOGETHER IN AGREEMENT, ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO FALL UPON THE CHURCHES OF AMERICA IN A POWERFUL AND MIRACULOUS WAY.

“Ask and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives, and the one who seeks finds, and the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:7

* Holy Spirit, fall upon the 400,000+ churches and 200 denominations in America in an unprecedented movement of God that would wake up and spiritually revive the churches across America.

* Anoint supernaturally the pastors and spiritual leaders who open God’s Word to preach it and call people to faith in Jesus Christ and Him alone for salvation, as well as advance the gospel of Jesus across their region, America and the world.

* Spirit of the Living God, we call upon You to bring to America the next Great Spiritual Awakening, that would be so powerful, it would shape generations in the future; an awakening of historic proportion.

Spirit of the Lord, call Christians in America to join Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and me as we call for 31 Days of Prayer for My Nation during the month of July. (Order resources at https://www.prayershop.org)

“Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.” Ephesians 3:20
