God Almighty

Thank You for loving and caring for me. I come today with a deep concern about the condition of my heart. With the issues surrounding us today in America, I find it too easy to become cynical and unloving.

The divisions we face, the distrust between us, the unbelievable loss of our humanity makes it more difficult…and more imperative I look to You every day for purpose, hope and security.

The problem is I find it all too easy to lose sight of this truth. You have said, “…we struggle not against flesh and blood..” our enemies are the spiritual forces of darkness in this world.

Help me have the heart of Jesus…help me remember the everyday people around me are lost and deceived. Correct me when I forget!

AMEN

Scripture: “We struggle not against flesh and blood but…against the world forces of darkness…” Ephesians 6:12

Father of Abraham. Isaac, Jacob and Messiah

I have fallen short so many times…but You are always there to lift me up and put my feet on solid ground. Thank You for Your faithfulness to me.

The rich and powerful of our country have walked away from You and have led so many astray. My heart breaks at the path many Americans have chosen. It is the easy way…go along to get along…but it leads to destruction and ruin.

Our coarse and selfish culture has hardened us to one another and created deep divisions among us. We are acting as if we no longer need You. We walk in darkness and hopelessness. We need You desperately. Reveal the way back into Your presence.

This very moment, cleanse me and make me part of Your solution.

AMEN

Scripture:
“Though you were once far away from God, now you have been brought near to Him because of the blood of Christ.”
Ephesians 2:13b

A Most Dangerous Prayer

What Inspire & Ignite is asking Prayer Warriors to do is not without risk. We are asking the King of Kings’ knights to take on…on a daily basis…the spiritual forces of darkness that have brazenly invaded our communities.

The enemy is not much bothered by the prayers of most Christians. Most Christian’s prayers are not a threat to his empire of evil. Most often, our prayers are requests for loved ones, health concerns, and everyday events in our daily lives. God encourages us to lift those prayers to His throne…but they are not of much concern to Satan.

>However, If you dare to challenge his deceit and bring light to bear on his agenda by engaging your heavenly Father’s help to restrain him, Satan will take notice. When you call on the King of Kings to intervene on your behalf, confronting the darkness and evil of Satan’s plan to bring pain and destruction upon humanity…if you dare to stand against his lies and evil, which are hurting innocent lives and blinding mankind to the truth of Jesus and Heaven, the Satan will take notice.

It is a dangerous thing to stand against the agenda of the devil. The Bible warns us of the threat that the enemy poses.

“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” (Ephesians 6:11-14)

To become a Prayer Warrior for the King of Kings…to serve at His Round Table…to build up the wall and stand in the gap will require courage and faith, faith in your salvation, and in your Father’s heart for those who stand for Him. Do not take this challenge lightly. It may not always be easy…it will always be right to stand in the gap for our communities.

Remember as you pray each day for God to rescue America from the forces of darkness…DO NOT FORGET to lift up all of your brothers and sisters of the Round Table…ask for God’s protection for their sake, as they battle the forces of evil at work all across our country.
