Day 16 Prayer
Pray the Word
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, just as Queen Esther stood in the gap for Your people and went before the king to intercede, so we stand in the gap for Your people, for the Nation where You have planted us. We come before You, the King of kings to intercede. Let us win grace and favor in Your sight as the pattern of the king showing grace to Esther.
Thank You for Your grace in the wilderness. Thank You for Your faithfulness through every season. Thank You for Your unmerited grace to all who follow You in Spirit and in truth.
Your word tells us, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” Let the power of Christ rest upon each of us. Let us each walk in Your sufficient grace and walk away from incessant pleading for our will over Yours. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace with our eyes fixed solely on You that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Empower us as the apostles giving their testimony of the Lord Jesus, and let great grace fall upon us to bring Your Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven ‘for such a time as this!’ Just as Stephen was full of grace and power, equip us to do great wonders and signs among the people that many will be added unto You.
Let us see to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled. God of all grace, who has called us to Your eternal glory in Christ, restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish us.
Thank You that although we all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, we are justified by Your grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with You through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through Him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. For by grace we have been saved through faith. And this is not our own doing; it is Your gift, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Let us use hospitality one to another without grudging. As each has received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of Your manifold grace.
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!’
