Day 13 Prayer

Pray the Word

For Faith

Father, we stand in one accord, raised up ‘for such a time as this,’ to war for God’s Kingdom and God’s people.  We come in agreement as we approach the 2016 Presidential Election that we heed Your counsel which stands forever.  Your word says “Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)   Father we thank You for the sacrifice of Jesus Christ who laid down His life for our salvation.

Father, Your word says we shall live by faith, not by sight;  that the testing of our faith produces perseverance;  that by grace we have been saved through faith. And this is not our own doing; it is the Your gift.  Thank You for the gift of faith.  Let us not focus by sight on all that is swirling around us in the world today, in our personal situations and in this pre-election time in our Nation.

Rather, let us proceed daily by faith in You and You alone. You alone are on the throne no matter our circumstance or outcome of this election.  You alone are the King of kings and the Lord of lords.  Let our faith remain strong in You and You alone.

Let us always thank You for our brothers and sisters in Christ and let us come along side each other in faith in this season.  Let our faith grow more and more, that the love all of us have for one another will increase and bring unfathomable unity to the body of Christ.  Equip us with faith that can move mountains, but also give us love to go forward to bring Your Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.  For it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”

Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, revive us to fight the good fight of faith.  Let our mouth profess our faith and not our circumstance, for it is with our mouth that we profess our faith and are saved.

By faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered You faithful who had made the promise.  Let us be as Sarah and consider You, not our circumstance or our natural sight. By faith we understand that the universe was created by Your word, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.  Let us stand immovable in faith on Your word and promise!

Let us not cry out afraid about our circumstance, thinking we are beginning to sink as Peter did. Let us never be people of little faith.  Rather, being justified by faith, we have peace with You through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Our faith has healed us.

Cancel any attempts of the enemy through lies and deception. Let us not be deceived by those who continually sow discord for their own gain.  Open our eyes and remove any veil that would keep us as a Nation from seeing Your truth as we move toward this election.

Work in our individual hearts and connect us in unity that our works will be pleasing unto You ‘for such a time as this.’   Keep Your protective hand on these United States of America. Give us Godly wisdom and discernment to vote in the coming election.  We pray for the land where we are planted.  We pray for our leaders.  We thank you and pray for all around the world who stand praying with us in this season.  We pray all this in Jesus’ name.  Amen and Amen.

May we, God’s people, arise united in our Nation, in this season to the fullness of God’s call.

Keep the Word

“I sought for a man to stand in the gap.”  Ezekiel 22:30

40 Days in the Gap

As we approach these 40 days leading up to the Presidential election it is incumbent for each and every Christian to stand in the gap for this country.  Our Nation now more than ever needs consistent, diligent and strategic prayer cover.

Pray for wisdom and discernment for the political leaders, pastors and church leaders, and for all Constitutionally qualified in our Nation to register and vote with Godly direction.

A Little History

Since the inception of Esther’s Warriors Ministry in early 2008, we have strategically prayed for the healing and safety of United States of America.  Just as Queen Esther went before the king to intercede for her people, we go before the King to intercede for our Nation ‘for such a time as this’ (Esther 4:14).

God promises us in 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” Holding our country in prayer keeps our hearts focused on seeking God for our safety and future. 

Discern the Times

This election is unlike any that has come before in history.  Freedom itself is at stake.   We stand on the precipice today as we approach the election with the opportunity to vote for the change that could bring back the America of the Constitution of our forefathers.

This is not Democratic or Republican. This is about the United States of America. There are many who are set on ‘changing’ who we are as a Nation and have been systematically removing the rights of Christians.  Islamic extremists are a growing threat to our safety and way of life within our very borders.  Remember 9/11, Ft. Hood, San Bernardino, Orlando, Boston, NYC, NJ, and the rise of mall shootings with ties to Islamic extremism. Remember Benghazi.

May we turn back to God as a Nation and once again stand united.  United we will stand together in this season. These are still our United States.  Let us join together that we will arise united ‘for such a time as this!’
