40 Days To Save America Fast & Prayer - Day 28
Day 28: The Vineyard Called, "America"
Return to us, O God Almighty! Look down from heaven and see! Watch over this vine, the root your right hand has planted, the son you have raised up for yourself. Psalm 80:14-15
Mark 12 records a parable Jesus told about inheritance. He described a man who bought a field and prepared a vineyard. He planted it, built a hedge around it, set up watchtowers, and after a time left it to stewards to care for. When he sent a servant to collect the harvest due him, the tenants beat the servant and sent him away empty handed. The owner sent a second servant, and his treatment was no better than the first. Finally, the owner sent his own son. The stewards assumed ownership illegitimately over the rights of the man who gave life to grow the very vineyard. When the son came looking for his inheritance to redeem and restore and replant and nourish it, there was a great struggle in the vineyard and the stewards took the life of the son in order to take the inheritance as their own.
Some wise man asked, “Lord, what shall we do with the ones who were given this vineyard and did not care for it in your name?” Jesus said, “Evict them, give the vineyard to those who will steward it as true heirs.” We live in that time and that hour today. America is a vineyard well planted by the Lord. He built a hedge of protection in His word, dug deep foundations in our soil, and planted here a seed of His glory that He is looking to for a harvest.
We have a great inheritance that squatters have come to possess, forgetting the God who planted this land as His own. There is a call upon each and every one of us from Heaven to arise for our nation. Let us press in in prayer in these last few weeks before election day. Let us pray for an eviction of every foul spirit and the men and women under their influence who are squatting on our land. Pray that righteous rulers may once again steward and nurture this vineyard called, America!
Prayer Day 28:
Lord Jesus Christ Son of man, Son of God, heir of all things, Son of the Father, to you we pray. O Lord hear, O Lord forgive, O Lord please listen and take action for your city and your servants called by Your name. You have made us your kings and priests to reign in the kingdoms of this world. We stand between this creation and the glorious Throne that made it for Your joy and pleasure. Lord Jesus we pray today that our prayers may rise before you and join with the prayers of the saints down through the ages. Bind back the wicked. Evict the demonic squatters who have laid claim to Your inheritance. Visit us Lord, with awakening. Blow mighty breath of God on Your vineyard here, that we may arise and shine with Your glory. Give us leaders, Lord, such that it would be to Your glory to give us the victory through them.
