Prayer Summary for August 14

Prayer Summary for August 14, 2017

The following devotion from Kenneth Copeland Ministries was shared during Morning Prayer…

Don’t Underestimate Your Prayers, Kenneth Copeland Ministries daily devotion, 14 August Monday

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
1 Timothy 2:1–2
That verse is clear, isn’t it? The instruction is plain. Yet even in these tumultuous days when our nation is so desperately in need of God’s guidance, most of God’s people don’t do what that verse commands.

Why not?

I believe it’s because most of us are overwhelmed by the problems we see around us. How could my prayers make a dent in the national debt? we think. How could my faith affect foreign policy?

In other words, we fail to pray because we fail to realize just how powerfully our prayers can affect this country.

It’s time we caught hold of that. It’s time we realized that if we’d just be obedient to 1 Timothy 2:1–2, there’s no council of any kind on earth, no king, no president, no congress, no anything that could overthrow God’s purpose for His people.

God has called us to intercede. He has commanded us to pray for those in authority. He has given us His Word, His power, His Name, His authority and His faith. We have all the tools necessary to pray effectively for our government and its leaders.

I urge you to intercede. It is your responsibility as a believer to get involved in the affairs of your country. God wants this great land of ours, and the only way He’s going to get it is through His ambassadors—you and me.

Pray for your nation. Every day. And never again underestimate the world-changing power of those prayers.

It is a supernatural change based and founded on Your holy written Word
We pray over those in positions of authority in the church
Give them eyes to see and ears to hear all that You are calling them to, Father

Thank You, Father, for working in our nation, for working in every part of our government
In the name of Jesus, we pray and plead the blood over our President

Holding the blood of Jesus against the source of those lying and deceiving spirits!
Tumults, we forbid you from operating and speaking in the name of Jesus
Give our governmental leaders wisdom and understanding
Illuminate and highlight those things that are vital and necessary to fulfill their destiny!
Grant unto them divine strategies of and by Your Spirit, O God
Open that up and make those things clearer and clearer unto them, Father
We loose angels and ministering spirits to go and work on their behalf
They are going to those war zones and to those troubled areas
Yes, we draw a bloodline around that now, and around those situations, Lord
We forbid any outbursts, and any upheavals, and we speak peace to those things now!

We are looking to bust out of the four walls and burst forth with the good news of the Gospel!
Yes, we will proclaim the love of God in these last days
The power of Your resurrection has the ability to change every facet of society
That power is operating in and through the church of the living God
We will be Your hands and Your feet, Lord
Father, we will be ambassadors for the Lord Jesus Christ
Thank You for motion, movementm and momentum of and by Your Spirit, O God
There is a greater collaboration, a greater cooperation, and a greater stirring
Yes, those that are with us are greater than those that are against us!
No, we are no longer status quo but onward we go
You are shaping and building Your church, for You have called us for such a time as this
The Gospel is going forth unimpeded—it has free course in this nation
Your Word is producing by its own inherent power
Thank You for more avenues, more venues, and more opportunities to speak and declare
We are looking for a mighty outpouring of and by Your Spirit, Lord God
Father, You and You alone have true counsel and understanding

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.

Scripture Focus…

(14) Behold, He tears down, and it cannot be built again; He shuts a man in, and none can open. (15) He withholds the waters, and the land dries up; again, He sends forth [rains], and they overwhelm the land or transform it. (16) With Him are might and wisdom; the deceived and the deceiver are His [and in His power]. (17) He leads [great and scheming] counselors away stripped and barefoot and makes the judges fools [in human estimation, by overthrowing their plans]. (18) He looses the fetters [ordered] by kings and has [the] waistcloth [of a slave] bound about their [own] loins. (19) He leads away priests as spoil, and men firmly seated He overturns. (20) He deprives of speech those who are trusted and takes away the discernment and discretion of the aged. (21) He pours contempt on princes and loosens the belt of the strong [disabling them, bringing low the pride of the learned].
(Job 12:14–21 AMPC)
