Why We Must Change the Way We Pray for America

I am asking you to change the way you pray for America. But first, let me ask you this question: how is it possible for Biden to desecrate Easter so blatantly with little or no backlash from America let alone the church?

I wanted to wait until after Easter before telling you what is really going on. It is a lot bigger than you know.

It was a display of power. They want to demonstrate that they have all the power. They can do whatever they want—without consequence.

It is a ploy to convince you that there is nothing you can do about it. Not even elections matter. This is intimidation pure and simple. An intimidation to crush hope, induce despair and discourage resistance.

They are signaling that they have complete control and want to rub it in our faces.

  • There is a demonic hedge around Biden.

They could have easily changed the date of this transgender visibility fiasco. It is an act of war. They are telling you and I to pick up our toys and go back to our safe place. They are telling us who matters in the new America and who does not. It is sheer evil.

And all that evil emanates from the White House.

The same applies to the media, woke corporations, Silicon Valley, Hollywood and China. We are watching a supernatural obliteration of decency and freedom. I had to change my approach. I had to go to God to ask for help.

  • Last night I gained a better way to fight back against this nameless evil.

God opened my eyes. First, I saw that the American church was abusing the goodness of God. We glibly declare it is all in God’s hands. That idea, while blessedly true is not the truth that is needed in this hour.

The truth is this: Jehovah has designated prayer—fervent prayer as the weapon to push back evil. There is more in our hands than we realize.

  • To break that spell we must resort to a different kind of praying: vehement, targeted intercession.

There is a demonic hedge around Biden. This hedge blinds millions. It dulls our natural sense of danger and outrage. America is under a spell.

To break that spell we must resort to a different kind of praying: vehement intercession. We must pray prayers that execute eviction orders on Satan.

They declared war on us. Now we must declare war on devils and their power structure. We must aim our war prayers directly at principalities and rulers in the heavens.

  • We must aim our war prayers directly at principalities and rulers in the heavens.

Here are our key verses: 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, “For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)”

Those verses say we have authority to tear down their hedge of protection. As soon as I realized this a strange confidence came over me. Faith rose up within me.

  • “The weapons I am using now will tear down strongholds!”

I began asking and declaring specific things. I raised my hands to heaven declaring, “The weapons I am using now will tear down strongholds!” The power of God will move through prayer—mighty prayer.

This is why we were so viciously attacked in Phoenix. God used it to get me to this fervent and lethal form of prayer. It drove demons back and got us the fairgrounds!

Here are the specific things God gave me to ask for for over America:

  • Confuse the media. Just as God came down and confused the languages at the tower of Babel, I declare that confusion and division will come between the leftist powers in the media and government.
  • Derail the agenda of the Democrats, ‘woke’ billionaires and China. According to 2 Chronicles 20:22-23, “Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. And when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another.”
  • Bring greater fire into the hearts of vessels of God as well as terrifying conviction upon lukewarm preachers, until the church rises as one voice to rebuke the workers of iniquity for their depravity.

Will this kind of prayer work? In Exodus 17, we see that it works. Joshua went down to the battle, while Moses went up to the heights over the battle and raised the rod of God. Aaron and Hur helped to hold up his arms, until the battle was won.

Moses was cutting off the demonic power of the Amalekites, just as cutting off the hedge of protection of the ongoing evil is how my prayer is now targeted.

This is no time to cave in to fear and anger. This is not time to fret about the future of our nation. This is the time to remember an old familiar friend: fervent prayer.

And not only that, but to see anew the power that resides in prayer. Let us unlock the power of this old friend to tear down impossible strongholds.

We must funnel all the energy that you used to expend worrying and being angry over the evil in our nation, into a new way to pray for America.

Join me in prayer and, together with Lord of the Armies of Heaven, let’s tear down these strongholds!

When evil is exalted, God looks for deliverers. He scans the nation to see who will cleanse themselves from the carnal church and the intoxicated preachers. He looks for those who will allow God to make them indestructible voices to restore righteousness to America. Be the person God is looking for in this crisis.
