Day 3 Prayer

Pray the Word

To Abide

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 God we come humbly before You today in unity for the future of this Nation.  As we fall to our knees, seeking You and You alone, we thank You for conviction and heart renewal in each and every one of us.  We who are called by Your name have wandered so far from lives fully surrendered to You.  We have allowed the world to come into our hearts, our churches and this land like a flood.  Raise up Your standard, Lord.  Turn our hearts back to You.  Raise us up in this season to abide: to act in accordance with/accept/dwell/reside in You and Your ways alone.

Let us stop playing church and truly obey, observe and follow Your ways in each life so that we are truly a people set apart.  Where we have allowed the world in and where we look like the world and act like the world convict us to repent, redirect and abide in You.  We have greatly diminished the power and authority and anointing You have given us by not standing and walking fully in Your word.  For we know that anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God.   The one who abides/lives by Your teaching, he has both the Father and the Son.

Let us repent fully…not for an hour or a day…but may we turn from our wicked ways with a far-reaching decision to line up our lives in Your pattern and restore ourselves and this land back to You.  Let us completely abide: keep to/ hold to/conform to/act in accordance with the way You would have us go.

Your word clearly tells us, “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. “If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned. “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. “My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. “Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.”

Let us abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming for if we say we abide in Him we ought to walk in the same manner as He walked. 

Let that abide in us which we heard from the beginning.  If what we heard from the beginning abides in us, we also will abide in the Son and in the Father for the one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him.  We know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given 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!’
