40 Days To Save America Fast & Prayer - Day 31
Isaiah 37:17, 20 Then Hezekiah prayed to the Lord, saying: “O Lord of hosts, God of Israel, the One who dwells between the cherubim, You are God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. Incline Your ear, O Lord, and hear; open Your eyes, O Lord, and see; and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which he has sent to reproach the living God. . . . Now therefore, O Lord our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You are the Lord, You alone.”
Make God big through praise. The key words of Hezekiah’s prayers, when all was said and done, were: You alone. Those who know their God will do exploits. Salvation is in no other. John 14:13 instructs us, “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son”
We have learned over the years to keep the Lord mighty in our hearts. We enter battle in the spirit of praise. Whatever our battle, God is bigger. This was the key that, for David, turned battle after battle into victory after victory. Psalm 34:1, 3–4 reveals his heart, “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. . . . Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together. I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”
In the middle of a storm we clear our hearts of anxiety and worry and make room for His glory by magnifying the Lord. Psalm 24:7–8, 10, says: “Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. . . . He is the King of glory.”
Remember: when you are confronting the enemy in battle, do not focus on or magnify the enemy. Magnify the King of glory and let Him bring His glorious victory to America.
Prayer Day 31
We declare You Lord over our lives. Lord over America, Lord over this nation! You alone hold the destinies of nations in Your hands. You alone determine the days and numbers of our years. Lord, God, Creator of heaven and earth, hear our prayer for America. Deliver us, Lord, from the hands of unrighteous rulers, and give us leaders such that it would be to Your glory in our nation. We thank You Lord for Your awesome hand and miraculous deliverance in our nation’s past. We thank You Lord for the awakenings and revival fire You have poured out on America. Lord, in Your mercy, do it again. Only You can save us from ourselves and the path we have taken. We turn to You, that You would turn our nation back to You, in Jesus name.
