Day 17 Prayer
Pray the Word
To Use Our Gifts
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, we thank You for the countless gifts You shower us with minute to minute. Let us be ever mindful of and thankful for these gifts, but more importantly, ever mindful of You. Our salvation and ongoing relationship with You is the greatest gift. Let us never lose sight of that.
Let us keep our hearts and minds fixed ever on You. Let us remain humble in Your sight, never rising in self pride, never thinking we do not need You minute by minute to lead, direct and guide us.
As we come before You to stand in the gap for this Nation that was dedicated to You and has fallen so far away, revive us to walk in the gifting You have given each and every one of us. You gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues.
Let us arise now united as one body and one Spirit, just as we are called in one hope of our calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all. To each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Let us not keep these gifts hidden but let us arise now, united and fully equipped, to use these gifts both inside and outside the walls to usher in a turning to You in each heart and in this country.
Let us remember that there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons. To each of us is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues. One and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.
Speaking the truth in love, let us grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love. Let us step up and prophesy to the dry bones that a fresh move of Your Spirit will come upon us, we shall live the fullness of our calling, and stand on our feet united as an exceedingly great army ‘for such a time as this!’
For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ. Let us arise one body, cohesive in Your individual and corporate assignment, to step up and step out in the fullness of Your giftings for the salvation and restoration of Your church and this Nation.
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!’
