Prayer Summary for July 8


The following is a petition to God for the United States given by Living Word Christian Center in 2009

Father, You have said in Your Word to make petitions, prayers, and intercessions and to give thanks on behalf of all men and for those who are in positions of authority so that we can live a godly and peaceful life. Father, we come humbly but boldly before Your throne of grace to receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need for our nation—the United States of America. And by rights of creation, this nation belongs to You, for surely You have created this United States of America. This nation did not come from men. It came from You. You put the seed of this nation in men’s hearts even before they knew. And You have saved other nations for Your name’s sake. We implore You to come in the fullness of Your glory for the sake of Your name in this nation.

Lord, let not the heathen say, “Where is their God?” Let not the blood of our forefathers be shed in vain, for they formed this nation under the guidance of Your very hand. Lord, we know Your honor is at stake. Do not allow Your glorious throne to be dishonored. The gulf between light and darkness has to be greater. The Church must be brighter and not look like the world because Your honor is at stake. The world dishonors the Church because they’ve not seen the Church shine. We cannot make ourselves shine. Only You can shine through us. It would be unjust of You, a righteous and just God, to not send the glory that we have cried out for decades. We cannot wait any longer. It must come now, Lord. And if not us, who? If not now, when?

Just recently, You spoke through Your prophets and said there is one thing that will save America: an awakening to God. Awaken us, dear Lord! Awaken Your people and transform us to be the glorious Church. Pour out Your Spirit in our nation and cause a great awakening—an awakening of such degree and magnitude that not one would be left untouched. We call for the days where You said heaven and earth will come together, the days when Jesus operated and functioned in the earth full of the Holy Spirit and power. You have said the time has come for the body of Christ to work exactly in the same way, that we would speak to the spiritual realm and immediately see results in the natural because this is the time for Your Church, the body of Christ, to rise up in full measure, full of Your anointing and power.

Father, You never change, and You are no respecter of persons. We have heard and read of revivals and moves of Your Spirit in times past in this nation; where entire crews on ships at sea came to salvation because Your presence manifested in such a degree that their need for You was undeniable; accounts of people falling to their knees in their homes crying out to be saved because Your presence permeated entire regions; countless testimonies of healings and creative miracles. Jesus said in the Great Commission that signs and wonders would go forth, and we call for them.

Yet, today, there are multitudes of men and women who will not even step into a church and many are deceived by false religions but Jesus died for us all. Father, You must visit them and make Yourself known to them. You are not limited by man’s ideas of how, when, and where. We ask that this entire nation be flooded with Your power for Your arm is not too short to reach every person. As a righteous and just Judge, how can You do anything else but send the glory?

Do You remember that in 1961, You showed Tommy Hicks a vision of the body of Christ rising up from slumber like a great giant? And when it stood and lifted its hands to You, it melted and fell as liquid drops of light that flooded the earth. Millions of people over the face of earth stood and praised You. Your anointing was upon these people as they went forth in Your name and they stretched forth their hands healing the sick and the lame.

Father, You gave us this vision. We are helpless to make this happen ourselves. O merciful God, be true to Your Word and bring it to pass. Raise up the Church. Raise up the body of Jesus Christ to shine forth Your glory in the earth so that kings would come to our rising.

In Your Word, You have said that You will restore all that the cankerworm, the palmerworm, and the caterpillar have destroyed. How long must innocent children be abused, left alone, hungry for food, and starving for love? Even as George Mueller held fast to Your own words that You would be a Father to the fatherless, we do as well for how else can it change but by Your hand? Your Word states that You will turn the hearts of fathers to their children, yet so many have abandoned their place as father. We cannot awaken them. Lord, as their Father, we know You would be pleased to provide and protect and strengthen them. You must do it for the sake of Your name!

Father, You have declared that You are preparing us for Yourself—a glorious body that will shake off every cord and every hindrance that has fastened itself upon it. Every weight will be removed, so Your body can move in power and great glory and anointing. Father, only You can raise up the Church as a mighty army and cause them to sweep over the face of the earth manifesting Your glory through signs, wonders, and miracles. Because You are our Redeemer, prove to the world who You are. Your Church belongs to You through redemption and You are responsible for the Church. You are the potter and we are the clay. Will You not remember us? How else will the world see You if not through the members of Your body?

We will not leave You alone until we see the outpouring You promised. We must see the rain. We must see the miracles. We must see the book of Acts come forth once again. Awaken the Church! Awaken our nation, O Lord!

Awaken us to realize and know the fullness of the covenant that belongs to us. Help us to understand all of the rights and privileges that have been granted to us through the name of Jesus, through the blood of Jesus, and through Your written and spoken Word. We, the Church, can only say we are here today because of Your mercy and goodness. We plead that mercy and goodness one more time. You are our helper and we look to You. We seek You for new mercies, because they are new and fresh every morning. Lord, You have invested far too much to stop now. Grant Your mercy upon our nation for the task is yet unfinished. We are asking for power—Your power—that is equal to all of our circumstances, all of our troubles, and everything our nation faces.

Again, You say in Your Word that You will perfect that which concerns us, and the spiritual and moral decline of this nation concerns us. This nation which was born of You is now looked down upon, laughed and scorned at, and even taken advantage of. This nation has sown many Gospel seeds and sent forth many missionaries to the world, because You have said those who labor for the Gospel’s sake labor not in vain. Yet billions of people still do not know You. O Lord, there is a harvest of souls that must come in and more laborers must be sent. Lord, only You can make a way for them to go. Only You can put the desire in their hearts for the nations. Did You not say in Your Word, to ask You for the nations as they are Your Son’s inheritance and the uttermost parts of the earth as His possession? We ask You for all of them that not one would perish! We ask in Your Son’s name for the harvest of souls!

We present this plea before You on the basis of the blood of our forefathers who died as well. We ask, Lord, that this nation would be raised up to the glory of God. Not only for our own selves, but for the world to know that we are still a beacon of light for the Gospel, and that Your Words are still true. They are true in this covenant of faith that You have given us, and they are true within our constitution because it was born from Your heart.

You have declared through Your prophets that it is not time for the United States to fail nor collapse financially. It is not time for this nation to fold up spiritually and go the way of the world. You have said it is the time of this nation’s greatest hour, its greatest spiritual outpouring, its greatest financial blessing. You’ve also said through Your prophets that the Church would not grow weaker and weaker, but stronger and stronger for a fresh visitation of heaven is at hand. Lord, visit us! Today! Visit the United States of America now! Do as You have promised that Your name will be great forever and that Your name will be exalted!

Through Your Word and by Your Holy Spirit, You’ve revealed to us the authority we have in the name and blood of Jesus. And we have used the name and pled the blood and told the enemy, “Stop! And go no further!” Lord, Your name is at stake! Your honor must be respected! The enemy must stop in his operations against Your body and against this nation that You founded to send forth Your Gospel. Lord, awaken us!

You said that we, Your body, would be reflectors of Your light and shine forth in darkness and those blinded by Satan shall see. Your body—men and women inspired by You, equipped by Your Spirit, and called by You—You have set them in the Church to shine, to testify, to preach, and to minister Your Gospel. O Lord, You are our Father. We are the clay and You are the potter, so we are the work of Your hands that bring You glory. You have been an ever present help, so help us by sending a great awakening to the Church and to our nation. We have been given a vision of what You long to do, what You wait to do. We request You to do it now for we stake our all on these promises for it is all for Your glory.

Father, raise up the Church and help us to shake off those things that have hindered us. Break off the bonds of tradition and religion that have held us bound. Cause us to go forth with the pure revelation of truth that’ll cause the lame to leap for joy and the blind to see both spiritually and physically. Continue to seal Your promises in our hearts by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Help us to hold fast to the confession of our faith without wavering, for You, the one who has promised, is faithful to bring it to pass. Strengthen us in our inner man as we feed on Your Word and solidify our complete trust in You.

Father, there is a work that must be done. There is a ministry that must be accomplished before Jesus returns. The time is at hand for we see things happening in the world—wars and rumors of wars, pestilence and famines and earthquakes, men’s hearts failing them because of fear. You said when we see these things coming to pass to rejoice for our redemption draws near. Father, we ask in the name of Your Son, Jesus, for Your anointing and power to move in the Church. We pray for a revival of the power gifts to come into manifestation and all of the offices working together in the fullness of the Spirit of God. Your Word says that the glory of the latter house will be greater than the glory of the former house. Only by Your Spirit can we do the greater works that You said we would do. We are helpless unless You send it. In fact, You have rebuked us when we say we have done things on our own, so we are now fully dependent on You.

Father, we cannot wait any longer. We must have You. We remind You of the wounds of Jesus, the agony He endured at Gethsemane. The strong cries of Your Son as He prevailed for our world and our salvation and His cry from the cross, “It is finished.” Father, our Lord and Redeemer, Your glory must shine in and through Your body. We do not want man’s plans and purposes, but only Yours. Nothing is impossible for You and no word from You is without power or impossible of fulfillment.

You said You will pour water upon those that are thirsty and send floods upon the dry ground. Quench our thirst, O Lord. Make us thirsty for a manifestation of Your presence and power in our lives, in our church, in our schools, in our government, and in our nation.

Lord, let righteousness prevail. Permit the seed of righteousness from which this nation was born to not die, but continue to bear fruit for all men, in the name of Jesus. For it is by design, O Lord, that this nation came to be.

Revive us again that Your people may rejoice in You for then we will not depart from You. Revive us, give us life, and we will call upon Your name. Restore us, O Lord God of hosts, and cause Your face to shine in pleasure, approval, and favor on us, and we shall be saved. Father, we are confident that no power which earth or hell could interpose would be allowed permanently to stop revival from coming to the church and our nation.

We know that Your desire is for all men to be saved and to know Your love personally. Therefore, Lord, we bring our plea before You. We set our case before You. We offer it in the name of Jesus, guaranteed by the blood of Jesus, sealed by the Holy Spirit, and laid out before You by Your own people. You are righteous and You will not let Your Word fall to the ground, and You are faithful to those who have sowed their lives for You. We fully expect the course of this nation to be aligned with Your plan, with Your ideas, with Your thoughts, with Your ways, and that You would sweep this nation up in Your arms, and again draw her to You. Draw her to You, O Lord. Draw her to You. Draw Your people to You in a great sweeping across this nation—a great sweeping, O Lord. We request this of You. We require it of You.

In the name of Jesus, we believe we receive what we have asked of You. We believe that we have the will of God in the Church and in our nation and the answers to our prayers. Amen. So be it.

The following prophecy was given by Dr. Billye Brim on June 6, 2007 at Prayer Mountain in the Ozarks

The callings of God are very important. The callings of God are not to be ignored. For the callings of God, I am to be entreated. For the callings of God, I am to be implored. When the calling of God is upon a man or a woman for the race, the calling upon that life is to a certain place. I deal with men and women too for the place into which I have called them. And pray-ers, you are called to a place to pray oft about the calls upon other men. A giving of your life even to intercede and implore for others. It is more important now than at any time, for the clock is ticking and in this climb the Master is working and men must be in the place to which they have been called and you will see quickly, quickly men coming to their place. Quickly, quickly men entering the race. Some departing to work on the other side. You’ve heard of some there will be more. For ALL things are moving toward that hour of the appearing of the Lord and the great power that shall work in the Church.

But know particularly as you move in prayer, I will use you to place men and women to where they have been called. Do you hear the strain? Do you hear the refrain? Do you hear what I said I call them by name? And sometimes when you pray, you’ll call their name too and it’s Me calling them even through you.

Place. Position. For this hour of power. Your prayers will be anointed. Your prayers will be as truly supernatural as those I’ve called you to see through the testimony of these who’ve witnessed and seen that man of God (Brother Halverson) and others too who moved in this realm and place with Me. And I call you there to be.

Practice My presence and live with Me. Quick to obey what I say. Quick to pray what I say. Learn to move out of the natural and mental so much, and live in the spirit with the Father’s touch upon your very ear and the ear of your heart. That I can impart unto you.

Leave go those things of the flesh that do enmesh your feet. What does it matter what man thinks of you? What does it matter if you get your way? What does it matter if you have your say? Live with Me in love’s own realm with the Spirit of the Lord at the very helm of your life. Walk with Me above sorrow and strife. Turn your face and your ear to the one with whom you have to do.

Now I belong to Jesus, you have sung. Let those words in your heart ring for they will have rung the story and sung the song of the life lived for God all this day long.

It’s just about over, this part of the race. It’s just about over this age but place and position is important in this hour. Yield unto the Lord for you are about to move into a place of power. The Church of the living God is about to move into the place of power and you who are called even to this place today to hear, to see, to know, to say, to pray! You will pray with a new (tongues) anointing. You will pray in a new place! And you will pray others to their place in the race.

Do have faith as you have been told this day. That when you pray you hear Me and I say, “Pray this, pray that, do this, do that.” You’ve had a living example before you here. Yeah, saith the Lord, and draw near. Draw near for I would speak to you and through you and I will bring My body into being so that the manifestation of the very Christ within this world will be seen and THEN we’ll begin a new age.

A Word of the Lord came forth:

(We’ve never been called just to cover our own tracks and cover our own deals but we’ve always been called and we’ve always pursued the call to pray out for others.) To intercede for things not just of old but of things of new and what others have been called unto to run their race, take their place and stand in the position I’ve called them to. Details, decisions, understandings, and revelations will come into what will look like another gear. It will be a shift where My presence… My presence manifested, will be so much more seen and heard and My Church will continually walk upward from one degree of glory to another and to another.


Thank You, Father, for the manifested presence of You precious Holy Spirit
Jesus be Jesus in us and through us
Lord, we want only Your plans for us
Father, we lift up those called to the forefront of the Church; those that are just on the brink of stepping over into that great call
We apply the blood of Jesus over their minds and over their families
Releasing a supply of the Spirit that will help and lift them up to the true height of their call
Words that will bring light and assistances
Walking in great authority and assurance of faith in Jesus’ name
Thank You, Father, for a shift, a turning, and a coming together in the body of Christ for the last leg of our race
Ignition and power!
Ministering spirits go forth for those in which we pray
Thank You, Father, that no weapon formed against them shall prosper
Father, we ask for helpers to stand beside and give aid and assistance to those on the forefront
A season is changing in the realm of the spirit!
We ask You, Father, for a fear of almighty God to be seen again, restoration across this land
Father, we ask that those in government positions would be set aright in Jesus’ name
Actions behind the scene, alignment by Your Spirit
Thank You, Father, for repairing connections so that we can better walk in our authority
Entire regions of this nation changed; a great arising of Your Church
Responding to the Spirit’s initiation; they have been called to arise!
Father, we ask that they would feel Your touch and hear You say “This is the way”
Thank You, Father, for all these critical positions that need to be filled today
We declare that words will be spoken at the appropriate time and place
Father, we give you all the glory, all the praise, and all the honor.
