Prayer warriors, it is time to weaponize our strength through our prayer! I think most of us do not realize how POWERFUL our prayers are. If you only knew what happens in heaven when we pray, you would NEVER stop praying.
Prayer brings us power. Prayer breaks stress. Prayer breaks our doubts & fears. Prayer builds our faith. Prayer gives God the authority to intervene in our lives & situations. Without our prayer or intercessory prayers, God does not intervene unto our free will.
God will always answer our prayers. Be aware that God’s ways are not our ways. The way He answers prayers may be unexpected from the way we thought He would answer us.
I know I have been talking about prayer A LOT! Please understand that the words and thoughts posted on this blog page are not the words and thoughts from me but are those that the Holy Spirit is guiding me to write about and discuss. Hence the name of this blog page, Holy Ground Today. These are God’s words/ideas guiding us for the issues and problems of today’s world.
Prayer is, of course, important to God as He keeps bringing me back to this same topic. God has been very adamant about prayer and the healing of our nation. Both go hand in hand because we need to seek the healing for our country via our prayers.
The importance of praying for our nation to God was recently confirmed to me by a online post by a tremendous man of God – Franklin Graham. In his post, he said that he believed God had given us a small window of opportunity to pray for the forgiveness and healing of our nation.
Here are some reminders of what God says about prayer via His word:
Does our prayer really change things? God’s word says that the prayer of a righteous man has great power to prevail James 5:16.
His Word also says that He hears & answer our prayers 1 John 5:14.
His Word says that He desires men to lift holy hands to pray & not quarrel 1 Timothy 2:8
Most of all, God tells us to pray without ceasing & to give thanks in ALL circumstances 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 .
Prayer is so important that the Holy Spirit prays for us when we are totally broken having no human words to utter to God Romans 8:26.
God has even given us the power and ability to magnify & intensify our prayer through coming into agreement with other believers praying for the same exact thing. Matthew 18:19.
And most importantly, God tells us that if we pray, seek Him & turn from our wickedness and He will heal our land 2 Chronicles 7:14 .
Please pray this prayer with me. God, heal our land! Restore this nation to Her former glory. God, have mercy on the people struggling in poverty. Bring this nation back into alignment with You God. God, we have fallen out of Your grace with our sin.
God forgive this nation for Her sins. Father, throw our sins into the sea of forgetfulness. Father, we have strayed so far from You. God, convict us as we do things that are displeasing to You. Bring this nation back to Her rightful place God. Bless this nation once again with abundance. God, bring this nation back into alignment with You. Heal & restore our land, God!
God, bless, protect & guide our leaders. Let them seek Your counsel first. God, let each of us pray for them relentlessly & fervently. Angels, in Jesus’s name, we command you to stand at the North, South, East & West of our leaders and divinely protect them.
God, protect our brave men & women of the Armed Forces. God, send angels to encamp around them.
God, we place a hedge of protection around our nation. Angels, in Jesus’s name, we command you to stand at every border and coast and protect this country.
God, bring an end to all the violence occurring around the world. Father, expose & destroy every plot, plan & ploy of the enemy to bring terror, fear, death & destruction to the innocent.
God let us remember to ask for Your divine protection daily. Let us not forget to apply Your full armor every day to our loved ones Ephesians 6:10-18 . Let us also not forget that You have already given us authority over the enemy Luke 10:19 .
God, intervene in all of the turmoil around our globe. God, destroy & expose every stronghold, ruler of darkness, principality & power of the enemy! God, I come in agreement with every other believer praying this same prayer. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Perhaps you were once close to God but for whatever reason have moved away from Him. If you hear Him calling you back to Him, then there is another prayer God wants to extend to you.
Perhaps you want to accept Christ as your personal savior for the first time. Again, the prayer below is the one God wants to extend to you.
Please pray this prayer with me. Dear Father, please forgive me for my sins. God, please cleanse me with the precious blood of Jesus. I know Christ died on the cross for me. I know He was crucified, buried and then arose on the third day. I know He ascended and now sits on the right hand of God. I receive Jesus as my savior. In Jesus name, we pray, Amen.
