Funny how God turned around the devil’s evil COVID-19 for His glory and our good
Have you prayed more than ever this year? I know I certainly have. Many signs, miracles and wonders have been experienced. It appears that prayers do move the heart of God. I just believe that God wants His heart to be moved by His children. 2 Chronicles 7:14 shows us how – it’s through prayer. And, like the sons of Isaachar who knew the times and what to do, I believe we are in a Kairos time of prayer. Corporate prayer, intercessory prayer, circle making prayer, warfare prayer, exhortation prayer, prayer that seeks the face of God, prayer that binds the works of the enemy and looses the supernatural. In this Kairos time of prayer, there’s an urgency to pray all forms of prayer over our government authorities.
When God casts a vision, He makes provision for it to come to pass. The Church Ambassador Network has been asked by a couple of state governing authorities to regularly pray for them. I believe there will be more asking for prayer. When they do, we will assign a prayer team to them. These are 15-minute Zoom prayer calls. Let me know if you are led to intercede.
During this Kairos time of prayer, these are the two books I’m reading in preparation:
The Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives released their weekly COVID newsletter update
What would happen if we put a circle around this virus and prayed for God to bring an end to it? Keep me posted if your congregation takes the challenge.
U.S. Supreme Court Protects Religious Liberty against NY Governor’s restrictions limiting religious services attendance
Let’s continue to pray for Justice Amy Coney Barrett, the health and protection of her family and that salt and light she would be the influence on the bench for the Kingdom.
Ohio is broken up into two U.S. District Courts Northern and Southern. It is critically important that the Justices on the lower courts have a moral compass to protect and not profane the U.S. Constitution because of their God given authority found in 1 Peter 2:13-17:
Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As for free, and not using [your] liberty of a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honor all [men]. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.
Join the upcoming Ohio pastors’ prayer gathering via Zoom on December 19 at 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Pastors and ministry leaders gather from the North, South, East, West and Central Ohio regions to strengthen our bonds of Kingdom citizenship, to declare the Word of the Lord and to PRAY God’s kingdom come and His will be done over Ohio. The Love Akron ministry will be our featured partner this month. Pastor Kemp Boyd and his co-laborers will share what God is doing through them in Akron. Then we collectively will PRAY for the Akron region and the salt and light there.
There’s a Zoom slot waiting for you—Hope to see you there!
