Fast & Pray for America

DAY 2 PRAYERS

6pm Tuesday – 6pm Wednesday

AMERICA & NATIONS OF THE WORLD

Remember, you have 24 hours to fast and pray. Don’t feel as though you must pray everything at one sitting. This is simply a guide to help us pray together in unison. If you are fasting, drink lot’s of water. When you get hungry, pray!

Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.” John 18:36

For the Christian, we are no longer of this world. Our citizenship is in heaven. We can spend large amounts of time, energy, resources, trust, and hope on political parties and leaders. When they fail, lie to us, or prove to be corrupt we may become angry and embittered. Jesus exhorted us to put our hope, trust, energy, and resources first into our eternal kingdom. As we engage politically, we must remember we are first ambassadors of Christ in His eternal kingdom. This does not mean we disengage from culture and politics in apathy, complacency or fear. An “ambassador” acts in the stead of the one who sends with equal authority. It does not mean, “God’s got this” and yet do not act. [James 2:14-17] Christians are commanded to act with love and righteousness in the culture and influence the culture for Christ. This is what being salt and light means.

The next 24 hours of prayer are dedicated to America as a nation and the nations of the world. Consider world affairs, leaders, and our part, in the light of Scripture. Use the suggested prayer items as a guide and add others as you are led by the Holy Spirit.

In your prayer time intercede for the nations of the world. Ask the Holy Spirit to bring to mind specific countries. These countries are on my mind because the people are longing for liberty and are looking to America for leadership. Join me in praying for them:

Canada, Hong Kong, Australia and Iran

Culture

Pray the listed items:

  • For a demolishing of strongholds of deception and delusion across America and the nations that are preventing people from knowing Jesus
  • That strongholds of fear be broken in America and the nations and that millions of people find true freedom
  • For the destruction of lies and political agendas that advance divisiveness and racism
  • For a mighty sweeping out of political leaders bent on authoritarian rule and tyranny and who are not servants
  • For a mighty outbreak in America and the nations of morality and righteous values
  • For Christians in America to reject being culturally relevant and instead influence the culture by being be obedient to the word of God
  • For men and women to embrace with joy and liberty their authentic God-given identity as male and female, masculine and feminine
  • That indoctrination and lies of socialism and Marxism be broken, and that people be eager to work and serve others

Pray for us and yourself:

  • Pray for Christians to courageously act by being fearless disciples of Christ to make a difference in the culture
  • If you have believed that “God’s got this” to the point of being tasteless salt or a lamp under a bushel, repent and engage
  • Acknowledge to God any weaknesses in this area and confess any sin that may be in your way.

Political Leaders

We are called to pray for our leaders [1 Timothy 2:1–4] Today, we will pray for our political leaders from the Ephesians 6:12 perspective. Reality is that politicians often answer to power that is greater than the voters. It’s often the power of money, but sometimes it is blackmail or other forms of spiritual darkness.

Let us intercede for our political leaders:

Pray the listed items:

  • Pray for President Trump and Mrs. Trump for stamina, good health, protection from evil, and godly wisdom and insight
  • For the Trump family for protection from evil and good health
  • Pray for protection from physical harm to all politicians and their families
  • For all the president’s advisors to be pure at heart and provide wise, godly council to the president
  • Pray for Joe Biden for humility and that he repent from denying Christ in his self-avowed Catholic faith, that he live and lead with biblical principles
  • A holy liberation for politicians in America and around the world who are held captive power brokers, blackmail, bribes and other nefarious evils
  • For God to expose and break the strongholds of power and corruption that control political systems in America and other nations
  • That the uprising of anarchy, rioting and violence in America be squelched and tyranny be broken
  • Pray for humbling of our political leaders that brings them to repentance, salvation, and freedom in Jesus Christ

Although not political leaders, these are leaders in the cause for freedom. Pray for them and others the Holy Spirit bring to mind:

  • Rush Limbaugh for healing and renewed health
  • Dan Bongino for healing and renewed health

Pray for us and yourself:

  • Pray for us to live courageously in the Gospel and not allow politics to take precedence over the Gospel. [Colossians 3:1-3]
  • Acknowledge to God any weaknesses in this area and confess any sin that may be in your way

America’s Health

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

God wants us to live in victory over the cares of this world. He is for us, not against us. [Romans 8:31-32] Our body’s wellness—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually is of great interest to God. He made us in His image! [Genesis 1:27] And those who are in Christ are the body of Christ!

Our nation is hurting in all aspects of individual health and wholeness. Obesity, mental illness, emotional immaturity, and demonic oppression are becoming acceptable societal norms, and sometimes even glorified. Instead of pursuing the root causes of our afflictions and dealing with them, we’ve become a nation that resorts to relieving symptoms by self-medicating with things that harm our bodies and souls.

The Church in America has great challenge and a great opportunity to lead by example in becoming healthy in all aspects.

Pray the listed items and as the Holy Spirit leads:

  • Pray against apathy, despair and confusion over our nation that keep people in cycles of bondage physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually
  • For courage and self-control to forgo treating symptoms and deal with the root causes of all health issues
  • For courage, will, determination and patience for Americans to work at becoming healthy and whole in every area
  • For ethics in government and health agencies regarding COVID-19, that their idea of health be broader than the virus

Pray for us and yourself:

  • Pray for Christians to lead the way into health and wholeness that we would have a testimony of victory to offer
  • Pray against enemy lies and deceptions that tell us “we can’t” and instead creativity and insight from God for solutions
  • Acknowledge to God any weaknesses in this area and confess any sin that may be in your way

Children in America

Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows. Matthew 10:29-31

It would be unmindful of us to pray about our nation’s challenges if we did not pray for the lives of the unborn children and the children be trafficked for sex. Today we will intercede for the children’s lives. We will pray for the hearts and souls of women who are contemplating or have already pursued abortion. We will not pray from an attitude of haughtiness or condemnation, but with a heartfelt pleading for a revelation of God’s love and action in their lives. And we will pray for an end to child sex trafficking and that justice prevail for the perpetrators.

Pray the listed items and others as the Holy Spirit leads:

  • For and end to abortion that steals the lives of millions of children each year
  • Pray for protection of unborn children who are currently at risk of being aborted
  • Pray for the women who are currently contemplating abortion: for a revelation of God’s love for them, a profound sense of awe for the child within them, and trust that God will make a way for both of them
  • Pray against all lies being told to women about the insignificance of their child; and for an unmasking of dismissing the consequences to women’s hearts and souls
  • Pray for women who have aborted children and are suffering in condemnation and shame for an encounter with Jesus in whom can do a glorious work of redemption in their lives
  • Pray for a mighty uncovering of those involved in the evil of child sex trafficking and pedophilia and that they be brought to justice [Proverbs 2:14]
  • That abused children be rescued and placed into loving situations with godly wisdom and therapy where they can heal
  • For those who are now adults and suffer from being sexually abused that they meet Jesus in a powerful way and that they be directed to loving Christlike friends and therapists that will come alongside them

Pray for us:

  • Pray that we never give up fighting for the lives of our unborn children or abused children, in prayer and in deed
  • Ask the Lord if he has something for you to do in addition to praying this area
  • Ask the Lord to remove in us any ambivalence, complacency or haughtiness in this area

America’s Finances

The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender. Proverbs 22:7

Our national debt is currently over $27 trillion, a number no one can fathom. Our nation’s unfunded liabilities (future promises) is over $200 trillion. These number are likely a fraction of what our government spends that is “off the books”.

It benefits the bankers to keep the government (via us) in perpetual debt and servitude. This becomes easy when money is created by punching zeros and ones into computers and lending it with interest. It is an evil we have allowed to persist for decades. It is a difficult pill to swallow, but we need to face this situation with humility, repentance, and courage, knowing that God is our provider.

Pray the listed items:

  • Pray for a continued unveiling of corruption of our nation’s finances
  • Pray for a deep cleansing and rooting out of those perpetuating our nation’s financial destruction
  • Pray for honest weights and measures in our government and financial markets. [Deuteronomy 25:15]
  • Pray for our nation’s people to move boldly into unity and neighborly love, helping and serving each other, and resisting the temptation to require the government (our neighbors) to provide our needs or subsidize our lifestyles

Pray for us and yourself:

  • Pray against apathy and fear on our part that perpetuates our nation’s broken finances
  • Pray that Christians stop blaming and be Godly leaders with wisdom that others can follow through these financial storms
  • Acknowledge to God any personal weaknesses in this area and confess any sin that may be in your way

 


It is a sin to despise one’s neighbor, but blessed is the one who is kind to the needy.  Proverbs 14:21
