Prayer for the Next Election


Dear American Friends,

Please pray about the next election starting now, and please pray that God’s perfect will be done, as The Lord Jesus taught His disciples to pray.  We cannot lean on our own understanding in such a crucial election as the 2012 election.  We must pray and seek The Lord as to His will, and pray that the person of His choice will receive the nomination, and then go on to become our next president.  Pray that you and all Americans will have supernatural wisdom in their choice, and I pray that we will have the faith to believe that The Lord can move mightily in behalf of this nation as we fulfill 2 Chron. 7:14 and Joel 2, etc.

Sadly, I hear so many Christian talking doomsday talk about the future of America.  Of course, that “is” the plan of satan for America.  However, I believe that some of the dreams, visions, etc. that some Christians are getting are from the wrong side, and they are geared to bring fear, frustration and apathy to the Christians.

The enemy gives dreams that some perceive as coming from God, but they are not from God but from the enemy.  I will explain why I have found this to be true.

I was a missionary overseas for some twelve years, and before I left America; I had several horrible and unredemptive dreams, and of course I thought they were prophetic and from The Lord.  However, later I learned that they were sent to deter me from my mission and calling.

While I was overseas; I prayed and prayed every day, and I received the real dreams from the Lord, and they were redemptive and quite encouraging.

The previous dreams were not redemptive.  God’s dreams and visions are always redemptive, and they will always give the person hope for the future.

You will know if a dream is of the Lord by its content which will be reflective of the Word of God.  It will be the truth, but it will also bring faith, hope and encouragement concerning our obedience to the Lord.

I think many Christians are not praying for our future in America for many reasons. Why?

1).  They may think that they will not be here in the future, because they will be raptured.

2).  They may think that it is all a lost cause.

3.)   They do not understand the tremendous power in prayer and especially the prayers of agreement between two or more Christians.

The church needs to learn about the power and authority provided by the death on the cross and the blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Many Christians know about the power they have been given, but they don’t use it in prayer.

We, Christians, have been given “all” power and authority because of what our Lord suffered for us.  We need to start seeking the Lord and praying His will be done in earth as it is in heaven.  Father always knows best.

This year and next year; we Christians need to pray and seek The Lord as never before.  Joel two is a good example of how we should pray and fast and cry out to almighty God for our nation, its people and for our country to become a righteous nation.  Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin brings a great reproach and shame upon a nation and a people.

My prayer for the next election:

Dear heavenly Father,

We humbly seek Your face about this crucial matter.  You alone know the future, and the hearts of all men and women.

We pray Father that Your best choice will be nominated and then elected.  We pray that Your people will repent of our apathy, and that we will humble ourselves, pray, seek Your face, turn from our wicked ways, and then You will hear, forgive us and heal us and our land.
We pray that we Christians will seek after Your perfect will for our future, our country and the world.

We have gone our own way, and we have leaned on our own understanding, and we have been selfish, greedy, and we have not sought Your will first.  Father, please forgive us for our rebellion and for doing our own thing.

Father we pray that this country of America will turn back to our foundation and heritage which is Jesus Christ and The Word of God and the greatest and most effective constitution that was ever written.  Please forgive us for allowing Your Name to be blasphemed and Your commandments to be trodden upon in America.

We pray that we will have the supernatural power of The Holy Spirit to turn to You with all of our hearts, and then You will hear from heaven, forgive our sins and heal our land.

Please bring us to repentance, and please bring a repentance revival to our once great land. Forgive us Father, and please empower us to have the hope, faith and love that we need to build a new and better future for America.

Please bring justice, judgement and repentance for all of the innocent blood shed in America, and for all the abuse done to innocent people, and for all of the lying, stealing, killing, rape, and evil that has been allowed to run rampant in America.

You are not finished with this land, and we must take back our land for Your Kingdom, honor and glory!

We ask everything in the Name which is above every name in heaven and eath, Jesus Christ and for His glory!  Amen, amen and amen.

Thank You Father for hearing our prayers, and for raising up the prayer warriors, intercessors and worshippers all over America.  I pray that You will raise up those that have the boldnes  and courage of Joshua, Caleb, Josiah, Elijah and Jehu all over this land.  We thank You for what You are doing and are going to do.  Thank you for Your wonderful goodness and mercy in Jesus’ precious Name!  Amen.

PRAY, AS JESUS PRAYED


PRAY, AS JESUS PRAYED
Peggy Kannaday
Luke 11:1b, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught His disciples.
2 And He said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.”

Jesus Himself always prayed the perfect will of God. He always set Himself apart from others in order to pray and hear from His Father God, as to what He was to do daily. How much more should we, Christians do the same?
I notice more and more that Christians are very divided in their opinions. Because of that; it is very difficult to have any agreement among Christians when they pray. What is the solution to this problem?
It is in always praying as Jesus prayed. “Thy Kingdom come; Thy will be done” regarding all situations. Our Father always knows what is best.
There is exponential power in the prayers that are in agreement with other Christians. When a prayer is prayed, and many Christians agree with a heartfelt “Amen”; the prayer’s power is multiplied due to the agreement.
We, as mere mortals really do not know how to pray because we cannot see everything as almighty God sees. We are very limited in our understanding in comparison with our all-knowing God.
Every prayer that I have ever prayed since becoming a Christian in 1972; has been answered properly when I gave the results over to The Lord completely. When I was willing to accept any answer, and I only wanted God’s will to be done; then the right answer always came to me.
Because I had released the situation over to The Lord; I then knew that it was The Lord’s will for that time and place, even if the answer was “no”. There have been many times when “I” wanted something so badly, but I was able to surrender it to the Lord, and later it worked out far better than what I had wanted originally.
When I was a young Christian; I had a burning desire to go to Israel. I prayed and prayed, but there was no leading to go at that time. At first, I was disappointed, but I finally was able to put it all on the shelf and not even think about it.
Many years later; I not only was able to go to Israel, but all my expenses were paid for me by my office, and I was able to go with them, and all arrangements were made by my office, and I had a glorious time. Because of many similar experiences like this; I have learned to give it all over to the Lord in prayer.
I also had an opposite situation where I tried to manipulate God, and I prayed very hard for a particular situation, and then I received what I prayed for, and it was a nightmare. Please be careful what you pray for and how you pray. Pray as Jesus prayed and you will always have God’s best.
Right before Jesus was horribly crucified; He prayed three times that if it was possible; the cup would pass from Him. He then prayed that God’s will be done. He was able to give up His desire, and He was able to win the awesome victory on the cross for all mankind because of it.
Matthew 26: 39b “O My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from Me: nevertheless not as I will, but as Thou wilt.”
Jesus Christ understood and trusted His Father God to that extent. He knew that no matter how difficult the whole process was going to be that if it was His Father’s will; He would get through it victoriously. Hallelujah, and the same is true for all of us.
God gave His only begotten Son to all mankind, and The Lord Jesus gave Himself as the living sacrifice in obedience to His Father. There was no other way or acceptable sacrifice for our sins.
The world system leaders, and the majority do not have wisdom from God. They rule the world through greed, selfishness, lusts, idolatry, rebellion and ignorance of knowing the real Truth.
1 Cor. 2:
7 “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.”

The “religious” leaders and the Roman “princes” did not know what they were doing when they crucified Jesus. The carnal Christians and those in the world system have a lot of knowledge, but they have no wisdom, understanding nor the power to overcome this world.
Christians are divided on many subjects; not the least of which is who they should vote for in the 2012 election. This election is extremely crucial for the future of the church, as we have known it.
The true sons and daughters of The Lord Jesus Christ are led by The Holy Spirit in their choices; especially the important ones. Please pray that The Lord Jesus Christ will lead you and guide you by The Holy Spirit (who brings you into all truth) concerning who you should support, and vote for in the primary and the general election. It is of utmost importance in order to save our nation while there is still some hope for the future. Only God can heal our land, but only if we humble ourselves, “pray”, seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways.
God did not destroy Nineveh, and it was horribly wicked, but they repented down to the cows, and so that means; we Americans can do the same and God will hear, forgive us and heal our land. That is His best for His beloved people who love Him and are called according to His glorious purposes.
That is why, we need to pray in agreement for God’s perfect will to be done. God will honor our prayers when we pray according to His will.
The church needs to turn from what “we” want, and surrender all to the One Who knows the beginning from the end, and Who knows what is right and just for all. We are at a crucial point in our history, where we cannot continue leaning on our own understanding. We cannot continue to make serious mistakes.
Proverbs 3:5-7
5 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.”

Now, is the time for the people of God to wake up, rise up and conquer our territories through prayer. We need to pray according to The Word and will of almighty God.
When we defer our own thoughts and desires over to The Lord Jesus Christ, then we can have a powerful unity and agreement in our prayers. We can overcome the adverse effects of the many doctrines and opinions of Christians, and we can agree with all that The Lord wants to ordain in the world.
Jesus Christ has been given all authority in the Church, The Body of Christ, by His Father, and we need to allow Him to take His rightful place as the Head of The Church.
We have been doing church our way for decades, and the results have been horrific. Let us let go of the reins, and let The Lord Jesus Christ lead and guide us, as He is our all-powerful, all-knowing and omnipresent God!
We need to go to Him, humble ourselves, pray according to “His” will; turn from our wicked ways, and then He has promised to hear from heaven, forgive us and to heal our land. Our country is desperately in need of healing.
God will honor our humility and our prayers that acquiesce to His authority, His judgement and His perfect will. God will honor our obedience, and He will heal our land. Hallelujah!
