Prayer For the 2016 Election: Lynn Donovan

American FlagHoly Father, who is in Heaven, Jesus our Messiah and Holy Spirit who moves in our hearts and in our lives, we come before you in obedience and love. We seek Your perfect wisdom. Lord, we plead like Paul, in Ephesians 1:17 for the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation to know Your will for our country, for our future leaders and to help us to bring unity to Your Church and to our country.

Lord, You knew before time began whom You would appoint as our 45th president. You ordained that this person might be a tool of Your purposes, judgement and or mercy. We ask now that you would bring that person forward and fill them with Your Holy Spirit. We stand in prayer and faith that this person will be humble and submitted to Your Son, Jesus.

Father, right now we come against the powers of darkness, principalities, and rulers of evil. We stand as Your Children, given gifts and authority to cast down all arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. And we declare that this land, the United States of America, will be a nation dedicated to God. We pray you move with great power to defeat the powers of darkness. And we will pray the heavens open and place angels on assignment to defeat evil intentions, lies to the public and deceit. In the name of Jesus.

Lord, we seek your favor and turn from wickedness. We repent on behalf of our brothers and sisters in this country that have aligned themselves with selfish and evil motives. We repent for lies that spew forth from our televisions and in the public square. We beg your forgiveness. Lord, now we ask a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit to sweep across our land and change the atmosphere from division, fear, and hatred and then release love, healing and kinship. Lord, we ask that truth prevail, Your truth. In Jesus holy name.

Father, let your people rise and see their enormous importance to humble themselves and pray this very hour for Your hand of mercy and grace. Let us storm the heavens with petitions that move all of heaven and that defeat hell with finality.

Lord, defeat the devil’s schemes. Remind us to armor up daily and to walk in the Spirit of 2 Timothy 1:7. For you did not give us a spirit of fear but one of power love and sound mind. Grant us a supernatural mind to know exactly how and whom to vote. Lord, let us become warriors, bold and valiant, for Your Kingdom. Let us not shrink back from attacks of evil but rise up and share Your truth with a world that is blind, naked and dying.

Lord, let Your banner over us be love and kindness. You know who our next President will be. We ask that You would bless our county with a humble person who will seek Your face for wisdom as they guide us in the days ahead. Place a covering over this person and family. Place a covering over American and bring about Your perfect plans for this Nation.

We pray all this in the name above all names, Jesus. Christ.


Why Am I Experiencing So Many Difficulties?

In the past couple of months, I’ve noticed something interesting occurring within Kingdom people. Many of God’s kids, who are growing in their faith, serving and even running ministries are being bombarded by troubles.

Oh trouble, trouble, trouble.
Go away!

WHY?

In our crazy and frantic and busy lives we don’t often contemplate how the enemy would like to destroy us. And how the demonic uses trouble to do so. We are just too busy and slow to recognize that things are running a muck. The car breaks down, our kids are in the midst of enormous struggles, our marriage peace is uneasy, we become ill, and we will drop our perspective. And finally begin to wonder, God, where are you?

Let me share some insight I pray will raise your awareness and compel you to dawn your armor and get back to basics.

Dawn armor of Ephesians 6 and return to the Word and to prayer. It’s always our best offense to be in strong relationship with our Father in heaven, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

This my retelling from a book I’m currently devouring, Defeating Dark Angels, by Charles Kraft. The particular chapter I’m perusing asserts that demons are involved in every kind of disruption. And they target, specifically, believers.

They are intent in destroying and tormenting believers so they don’t pray, doesn’t seek God, so that they will fall away from Him and be like the rest of them (lost)…

The demonic realm is purposeful to work in the mind. They inhabit unclean thoughts and create confusion. The speak falsehoods that throw believers into doubt, fear, anxiety and host of other dark emotions.

However… Tada!!

God in his brilliant rescue gave us the most powerful passage to defeat the demonic realm and specifically strongholds in our lives where they wield influence and power.

It is true, we live in a body of flesh. But we do not fight like people of the world. 4 We do not use those things to fight with that the world uses. We use the things God gives to fight with and they have power. Those things God gives to fight with destroy the strong-places of the devil. 5 We break down every thought and proud thing that puts itself up against the wisdom of God. We take hold of every thought and make it obey Christ. —2 Corinthians 10: 3-5

This passage has taken on new life in my world. And a stronghold is being defeated as I take my temptations that – now get this – that begin in my mind. I take them captive and command them to go to Jesus.

Today, I pass along this empowerment through the Word of God. Literally say out loud, “I take that thought captive to Christ.”

The enemy hordes must obey when you remain persistent and consistent over time. And then the disruptions in your life calm as you move further into the atmosphere of heaven; peace, joy and righteousness.

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. —Romans 14:17

I release victory over you today and stand in faith with you to be MORE THAN CONQUERORS!!!  Hallelujah.

Let me know if you are struggling in this area, I will pray for you. I love you my family of the Kingdom of God. Have a victorious day in His Presence. Hugs, Lynn
