40 Day Fast for Revival in America and November 6, 2018 Elections
It is time for the Church to bend our knees, fold our hands in prayer, turn our eyes upward, open our ears to hear the word of the Lord and obey.
If my people, who are called by my name,
Will humble themselves, pray, seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven,
will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2 CHRONICLES 7:14
It’s time for real, deep-down, gut-level changes that can only happen when the people of God unite, hear the voice of our Father, and take action to bring about a real difference from what they have allowed themselves to settle for. This is the kind of change that can only happen when people are willing to repent, stand up, leave their comfort zones, share the Gospel, and pray for real transformation starting with us…personally. When this happens, a nation’s leadership can change from the top down.
It’s time to get out of our comfort zones. This is how to interpret the New Testament Church: Jesus sent its members out. They were not in one geographical location. They were fluid. They were mobile, constantly moving. If Jesus is in you, and you are in Him, YOU are the Gospel. How do you share the Gospel just sitting in the four walls of the Church? It’s time to stop waiting for people to come to us. We have to start going to the people. This is the very essence of the Great Commission which Jesus gave us.
Good Things Are Coming!
Our future is very bright. The change that has begun will continue if God’s people will keep uniting in prayer and focusing on God’s mission. Being confident of this very thing, that He Who has begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
God has indeed begun a good work in our world, our country, and our Church. He will be faithful to complete it as His Word says. However, the Army of God needs to wake up! Open your eyes and your ears to the Lord God. Get rid of religion, set aside legalism and judging others…focus on the Lord. Don’t be distracted by obstacles. Concentrate on the mission…So what IS the mission? Taking ground for God’s Kingdom—and holding it—at all costs!
God is ordering His people to clean our hearts and our lives. He is coming back for the pure and spotless bride, so we must come out of the world’s systems and the culture, and strive for target-focused prayer and repentance.
Never forget that we are the Gospel. It’s time to start moving. We’ve been stagnant for too long. We cannot reach the lost just coming to church on Sunday. People we know and love will spend eternity away from God if we don’t tell them about the love of Christ and show them Who He is by the way we live.
We’ve got to take a stand and stop listening to reports about doom and gloom. Christians are NOT the weak, out-numbered, or powerless people that the world tries to tell us we are, and it’s high time we begin to believe in the power of God’s Army (that’s us!) The days of silence and complacency are over. No more hesitating! It’s time to light up our world with the Holy Fire of God!
The Bible says to “decree a thing” (Job 22:28) and it shall be so. Use the authority Jesus gave YOU! Here are some Prayer Strategies and Scriptures to use during these 40 days:
1. Pray that any hidden agendas, lies and confusion within the media are exposed (Daniel 2:22). “Human defiance only enhances God’s glory for God will use it as a weapon.” Psalm 76:10 Living
2. Decree God’s justice over the United States, the President and over the nations.
3. Decree that the foundation of law and order is restored (Psalm 11:3 Living)
4. Pray daily protection over President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and their families (Psalm 91).
5. Declare that God will “break the strength of the wicked and increase the power of the godly.” Psalm 75:10 NLT
6. Declare that Christians will unite and refrain from criticizing.

1Tim. 2:1-2 I exhort, “first of all” that supplications, prayers, intercession and giving of thanks, be made for all men: FOR KINGS AND ALL WHO ARE IN AUTHORITY, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.
Prov. 21:1 The “King’s” (president’s) heart is in the hand of the Lord; like the rivers of water He turns it wherever He wishes.
