The following is a prayer for our nation by Pastor Lynne Hammond:

Father, in the name of Jesus, and according to your Word, we pray for those in authority in our nation. We lift up President Donald Trump, his family, his staff and cabinet members. Let Your Word cling to them and let them not depart from your plan. Strengthen them with mighty power by your Spirit to stand against wickedness, lies, and deception. Guide President Trump’s decisions; let Your light shine upon his path and show him the path of reversal for every evil way. Continually surround him with godly men and women who impart wise counsel to him. Cause the way of the wicked to be set to confusion and come to nothing. Deliver us from the traps and snares the enemy has laid for us, and let the wicked be caught in their own devises and be brought to shame.

We take authority over the plots and plans of the enemy against this nation. Let prideful and lying lips be silenced in Jesus’ name. Slanderers will not be established in America. We pray for our Congress, our Supreme Court, our Military leaders and our intelligence agencies. Let the wisdom that is from above reign in this nation and be constantly speaking to our leaders. We exercise the authority You have given us to tread down all the power of the enemy. We cast down and demolish imaginations and arguments that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God, and we bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. We bind spirits of strife and division, civil wars and tumults, spirits of hostility, lawlessness and blasphemy, and fires from hell that have burned in our cities.

We speak grace and peace over America. We pray and believe for the voice of truth, salvation, revival, and restoration to be proclaimed and heard across our land. Grant unto your servants everywhere that with all boldness we may speak your Word. We pray for a mighty outpouring of your Spirit with signs, wonders, and miracles. We expect the wisdom of this world that is earthly, sensual, and devilish to depart and vanish until Your, mighty work in America becomes a beacon of hope for all people everywhere. We expect the voice of rejoicing to be heard in our nation for your goodness, mercy and prosperity, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Continued Praying…

Strengthen President Donald Trump and his cabinet in their minds and in their souls
Give them strength in their hearts, minds, and bodies
Show him and highlight that, Father, by Your Spirit
Let him move down that path that is highlighted of and by Your Spirit, O God
Show him every detail, open his eyes to see how all of the parts work together!
Let him see clearly, let his vision be so clear, so accurate and so precise
Reverse those evil ways, Lord
Strengthen his knees; lift up his hands that would hang down
We surround them with faith and love in the name of Jesus
Applying the blood of Jesus over every part of their lives and families
Surround him with those that are easily entreated by You and Your ways
Grant utterance in the Holy Ghost in Jesus’ name!
Enlarge their vision; enlarge their seeing and knowing of and by Your Spirit, O God
Let their vision be high and broad, show them the will and plan You have for them, Lord
We bind every demon power in the name of Jesus!
No weapon formed against them will or shall prosper!
Eyes be open, ears be unstopped, hear and see the great plans of God!
Thank You, Father, for continual movement and motion in the right direction
Yes, we will move forward with unimpeded progress in the name of Jesus
We call for a free flow, we declare for freedom and liberty
Stumbling blocks be removed, low places be brought up and high places be leveled out!
We loose angels and ministering spirits to go to those war zones, go, go, go in Jesus’ name!
Pleading the blood of Jesus over the securing of the Supreme Court Justice position
Go assist them in the name of Jesus!
We call the way of the wicked to be confused and come to nothing!
No, we will not set foot in any trap, but we will follow Your will and plan, Father
Applying the blood of Jesus over those traps, expose them and bring them to the light!
We come against that spirit that would slander and try to oppose the standards of this nation
Father, we take authority and bind that spirit in Jesus’ name!
God Himself has His hand upon this nation; God Himself has His hand upon our President
Thank You for respect and honor, once again, from the nations, to this nation!
Respect, honor, and a healthy fear of repercussions from going against God Himself!
We apply the blood of Jesus over every part, over every person, and over every operation and plan
No weapon formed against them will prosper in Jesus’ name!
Arise, and come forth to the true standard, and to the height of God’s Word!
No, we will not be ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ
Thank you that we would go about doing good, and we would be Your hands and feet, Father
Calling for boldness and courage, grant us words from heaven, Lord
We trust You and thank You for it!


The following excerpt is taken from A Larger Christian Life by A.B. Simpson:

“Be ye also enlarged” (2 Cor. 6:13)

The law of growth is a fundamental principle of all nature and redemption. Whatever ceases to grow begins to die; stagnancy brings corruption; the corpse belongs to the worm; a self-contained pool becomes a malarias swamp. Vegetation springs from a seed, the seed grows into a tree, and the tree into a forest. Human life commences in infancy and develops to maturity. The word of God has all unfolded from a single promise. The great plan of redemption has been a ceaseless progression, and will be through the ages upon ages that are yet to come.

The experience of the soul is a growth. True, it must have a starting point. We cannot grow into Christianity; we must be born from above and then grow. And so sanctification is progressive, and yet it has a definite beginning. Christ is completely formed with us, but He is the infant Christ, and grows up to the maturity of the perfect man in us just as He did in His earthly life.

It is here that the enlargement of our text meets us. It is only the truly consecrated Christian that grows. The other treads the ceaseless circle of the wilderness. But he has crossed the Jordan and begun the conquest of the land and the progressive experience of which it was the beautiful pattern and symbol. No book in the Bible has more progress in it than the book of Joshua, and yet from the very beginning it is the life of one who has wholly died to self and sin and has taken Christ for full salvation and is walking in the heavenly places in Him.

And even the book of Joshua only begins its highest advance when it is almost ended. It is after the whole land is subdued, that the call comes, “How long are ye slack to go to possess the land?…There remaineth yet very much land to be possessed.” And then it is that old Caleb, who has the weight of eighty-four years on his honored head, steps forth and claims the privilege of entering upon the boldest and hardest campaign of his life, the conquest of Hebron and the Anakim. It is to us then, who know the Lord Jesus in His fullness, that He is saying, “Be ye also enlarged.”


1. We need a larger vision. All great movements begin in great ideas. There is no progress without a new thought as its embryo. China has remained the same for three thousand years because China has not accepted a new idea. Her teacher is a man who lived long before Christ, and for nearly thirty centuries she has followed the ideas of Confucius and is just the same today as she was thirty centuries ago. Let China receive the American idea or the Christian idea and she will be revolutionized at once.

So the first step in our advance must be a new conception of the truth as it is in Jesus and a larger view of His word and will for us. We do not need a new Bible, but we need new eyes to read our Bible and brighter light to shine upon its deep and pregnant pages. We need to see, not simply a system of exegesis or a system of Biblical exposition and criticism; a thorough knowledge of the letter and its wondrous framework of history, geography, antiquities and ancient languages; but a vivid, large and spiritual conception of what it means for us and what God’s thought in it for each of us is. We want to take is as the message of heaven to the twentieth century and our generation, nay, the living voice of the Son of God to us this very hour, and to see in it the very idea which He Himself has for our life and work; to take in the promises as he understands them, the commandments as He intends them to be obeyed, and the hopes of the future as he unfolds them upon the near horizon of their approaching fulfillment. How little have we grasped the length and breadth and depth and height of this heavenly message! How little have we realized its authority and its personal directness to us! “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law!” “I will run in the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.” That ye may be filled with “the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.” May the Lord grant it to each of us in the largest possible measure in accordance with His will!
2. We need a larger faith. What is the use of light if we do not use it? We need a faith that will personally appropriate all that we understand, and a faith so large that it will reach the fullness of God’s great promises; so large that it will rise to the level of each emergency as it comes into our life. Do we not often feel that a promise has been brought to us with a light and power that we have been unable to claim and a need has arisen that we persuaded God is able to meet, but for which we are conscious our faith is not grasping the victory, at least according to the full measure of the exigency? This ought not so to be. If all things are possible to him that believeth we ought to have all things in His will for every moment of life’s need. The divine pattern of faith is the faith of God. Oh, let us be enlarged to this high measure!
3. We need a larger love. We need a love that will meet God’s claim of perfect love, as He has said, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” We need a love that will love one another “even as he has loved us.” We need a love that will love our enemies and pray for them that despitefully use us and persecute us. We need a love that will love the lost as He loves them, overcoming our repugnance to every personal condition, and delighting to suffer or sacrifice for their salvation with the joy that counts it no sacrifice. We need a love that will take our brother’s need and pain as if it were our own, and “remember those in bonds as bound with them, and them that suffer adversity as being also in the body.” We need that love of which Paul writes, “Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.”
4. We need a larger joy. We need a joy that will not only rejoice in the gifts of God, but will rejoice in God Himself and find in Him our portion and our boundless and everlasting delight. We need a joy that will not only rejoice in the sunshine but in the hour of darkness and apparent desertion, when men misunderstand us, when circumstances are against us when even God seems to have forgotten us. We need a joy that will not only rejoice in all things, but rejoice evermore. We need a joy that even when we do not feel the joy, will “count it all joy,” and rejoice by faith. We need a joy so large, so deep, so divine that it will not feel its sacrifices, will not talk about its trials, but will “endure the cross despising the shame,” “for the joy set before us.”
5. We need a larger experience. We do not mean by this any mere state of emotional feeling, but a larger range of Christian living, a bringing of Christ more into everything; an experience that will prove Him in all situations, amid secular business, exasperating circumstances, baffling perplexities, extreme vicissitudes; and, going all round the circle of human life, will be able to say, “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ with strengtheneth me.” That is a large experience. That is a degree in the school of Christ that will out-weigh all the D.D’s of all the colleges.
