40 Days to Save America: Day 9

40 Days to Save America: Day 9Today’s prayer is going to be a little different than what you are probably used to…

God commands us to pray for those in authority over us and He also commands us to pray for our enemies.  As we often pray that God will bless our enemies, change their hearts and give them wisdom, the Bible is also full of examples where prayers were called out to God against our enemies and against those that persecute God’s people.  The Psalms are filled with these kinds of examples where David often prayed that God would not only protect him from his enemies but that He would also destroy his enemies.

Make no bones about it church, we are at war!

Our enemy is the world system in which we all must live under on this earth…

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” ~ Ephesians 6:12

Our weapons are not carnal…

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds.  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” ~ 2 Corinthians 10:4-6

As a former Marine I was trained that in order to defeat your enemy, you must know your enemy.  And as a warrior I was trained to fight and to never quit and never surrender.  With that being said, this is how I often pray for the enemies of the Church.  I call it:

“The Warrior’s Prayer.”

Our Father in Heaven, we praise You for the blessings we share as citizens of the United States.  Thank You for providing us with all that we need and more. We pray that you would hear our cries and that you would save our nation from the destroyer.  We pray that You would open our eyes to the truth and that You would lift the Vail of darkness from the eyes of our people.  Father, there is so much deception and so much corruption spreading like a cancer throughout our land.  Let truth shine brighter than darkness and let truth ring louder than deception throughout our land.

Father, we pray against the wicked in high places who have set themselves against You and who have set themselves against Your people and against Israel, Your chosen land.  We pray that their lies and their wicked schemes will be exposed before all the people.  We pray that You would tear them down and strip them of their power.  We pray that You would strip them of their influence and strip them of their authority.  We pray that You would strip them of their wealth and strip them of their resources and that they would be made low before You almighty God.

We pray that the wicked in high places who have set themselves against You and your people would be ensnared by their own treachery and that they would be torn down and made of no consequence. We pray that you would cut the cancer of liberalism, socialism, communism, Marxism and progressiveness from our land and that You would cast them into the fiery furnace to be consumed forever.

We pray that You would protect us Father and let no weapon formed against us prosper; whether they be spirit or flesh.

Have mercy on us oh God and give us new leaders; give us men and women of Godly faith and character.  Give us men and women with incorruptible hearts; give us men and women with courage who are not afraid to lead; and protect them and their families from the enemy.  Give us men and women who will govern according to Your laws and statutes and who will govern according to our U.S. Constitution which we believe was divinely inspired by You.

Please forgive our sins against You as a nation and help us to repent of our wicked ways and return to You – our first love and restore our nation back to one nation under God with liberty and justice for all.

For Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever…

In Jesus’ name.

Amen

“Without wise leadership, a nation is in trouble; But with good counselors there is safety.” ~ Proverbs 11:14-15
