A Call to Pray for America
THIS is a call to prayer and fasting concerning the health and safety of our NATION, our family, loved ones, and the world.
Wash Your Hands Often * Do Not Touch Your Face * Keep Your Distance * PRAY
Here’s a starting point for how you should pray for America. Always start with worship and thanksgiving.
For our Nation.
The most effective prayers are prayers that are prayed based on Scripture, God’s Word and prayed from a person’s heart, with believing faith and spoken out loud as a decree or a declaration. Pray, the below prayer out loud, from a believing heart and know that God will answer you. [You can read this prayer out loud as is, or you can make these prayers personal by inserting specific names into these Bible-based prayers.]
Psalm 91 NLT below:
“My family, myself, and everyone in this Nation, live sheltered by the Most High; we are under His shadow of divine protection.
I declare this about the Lord: He alone is OUR refuge, OUR place of safety. He is OUR God, and WE trust in Him.
He will rescue US from every trap, lie, and deception of the enemy. God protects my family, LOVED ONES, and all fellow citizens from all deadly diseases and this coronavirus. He has promised to be OUR armor and protection. WE ARE HEALED, PROTECTED, HEALTHY AND WHOLE.
We have no fear of the terrors that may come by night or any attack that comes in the day. We do not dread the disease that stalks in the darkness. HIS BLOOD COVERS US; death and disease will pass over us.
No matter what is going on around me or in our Nation, none of these evils, sicknesses, or diseases will touch my family or any of us in the United States of America.
WE have made the Lord OUR refuge, and because WE have made the Most High OUR shelter, no evil will conquer OUR FAMILY, loved ones or anyone in America and the world; no plague, virus, or disease will come near our Nation or those that I love.
He has ordered His angels to protect ALL OF US, wherever WE go. These angels will hold US up with their hands so that WE won’t even hurt OUR foot on a stone. WE LIVE IN HIS LIFE, HIS LIGHT, AND HIS LOVE, we are protected and sheltered.
WE have authority to trample upon the enemy; WE will crush fierce lions and serpents, the demonic, under OUR feet! WE HAVE AUTHORITY IN JESUS.
The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love Me. I will protect those who trust in My Name. When they call upon Me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with long Life and give them My salvation.” “Thank You Lord for Your safety, protection, healing and YOUR PROMISES of health and long life.”
Decree and declare these prayers out loud.
Example: “Jesus is the Lord of my life. Sickness and disease have no power over me. I am forgiven and free from sin and guilt. I am dead to sin and alive unto righteousness.” Colossians 1:21, 22
Now take this same Scripture and reword it to include others. Example: “Jesus is Lord over the life of everyone I America. Sickness and disease will have no power over my family or those in America, Jesus’ name. I speak that all family members and loved ones, and all others in America are forgiven and free from sin and guilt. I speak that they are dead to sin and alive unto righteousness.”
Example: “Jesus bore my sicknesses and carried my pain. Therefore, I give no place to sickness or pain. For God has sent His Word and healed me.” Psalm 107:20
Praying for others. Example: “I declare that Jesus bore the sickness of everyone in our Nation, my family members, and those around the world. Jesus carried everyone’s pain to the cross. I give no place for sickness or pain for anyone that I’m praying for. God has sent His word and healed me, my family members, and all citizens of the USA.”
Example: “No evil will come upon me; neither shall any plague come near my dwelling, my body or our Nation. For you, God have given Your angels charge over us. These angels will keep us in all my ways. In my pathway are life, healing and health from You. Father, You are our protector and healer. Psalm 91:10, 11; Proverbs 12:28
We can change our thinking by speaking Scripture. Our words, when we say them enough times, get embedded into our minds, and will eventually be automatic. Just like the alphabet or the multiplication table. That’s why you should memorize key verses of Scripture as they bring His Life.
Sometimes it is challenging to control or direct our thoughts. Like a ship without a rudder, that ship cannot be directed or controlled. The Bible says that our tongue is like the rudder of a ship. A small rudder can turn and change the direction of a huge ship. Your tongue, if used correctly, by saying the right things, the right way, will change the course of your life.
Our tongue, or what we say, can override our thinking. When we get our words and our thoughts in alignment with God, our behavior will follow suit. We can control our tongue much better than our thinking. We do this by having things written down. See the teaching entitled “31 Days to Freedom.”
The Bible says that you can call things that do not exist as if they already existed.
This is critically important. If you learn to do this, your prayer life will change, and you will see prayers answered. This is God’s idea. God’s method is to call the things that are not, as though they were. That does not mean to deny what exists. You don’t call things that are, as though they are not. God’s method is to call things that are not manifested, as though they were already manifested. [You must see it and believe it as already done. Past tense.]
Here’s an example of how to apply this if you are sick. You would say/pray:
“Thank You God, the Bible says that I am healed by the stripes of Jesus. I am redeemed from the curse of the law. First Peter 2:24 says that I was healed by the stripes of Jesus, and I am confessing these things and saying them in the name of Jesus. It is causing faith to come, and I am calling my body well. Body, are you listening to me? I’m telling you that you are well and healed in the name of Jesus.
In this way, you are calling for something that you don’t have; your health into manifestation.
Don’t pray the problem, pray the solution, thanking Him before you see the answer manifested. By thanking Him, you are enforcing the desired answer to your prayers. See the outcome and speak the outcome into existence. Speak it and say it as if you already have it. “My body is healed. I am protected. I walk in health, and I have eternal Life. It is mine.”
You must see things and say things the same way God sees them and the same way He speaks them. When Jesus was on the cross, He said, “It is finished.”
Now here’s the key. Everything is already done. Jesus, through His resurrection, has shown us that the war has already been won. You can NOT look at your circumstances or the way you feel and accept that as the final answer. The war has already been won by Jesus. You just must enforce that victory in your own Life. Remember that the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, the Holy Spirit, lives in you.
Get together in a small group and share this. One person can pray, and the others in the group can repeat the prayer out loud. Take time to go before God and get your own life right with God. Repent, forgive, release any offense, and asked the Holy Spirit if there’s anything that would hinder your prayers.
Here are some key scriptures that are a foundation for believing and trusting God for answered prayer.
Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue…” This is why we speak the prayers and decree them out loud. We are going to command safety, healing, and protection into the very atmosphere and environment of our Nation and the world.
Romans 4:17 “As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations, before him whom he believed, even God, who quickened the dead, and called those things which be not as though they were.” We don’t deny what is already ‘there’. In our prayers, with the above scriptural authority, we speak the outcome, we speak what we want to see. We declare the answers of health, safety, and protection, for all of America. See it, say it and believe it!
Luke 9:1,2 “Then Jesus called together the Twelve [apostles] and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases, and He sent them out to announce and preach the kingdom of God and to bring healing.” You must trust and believe. Jesus not only said that we could do everything He did, He said that we could do even “greater works.”
Matthew 18:18 “Verily I say unto you, whatsoever shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” These prayers ‘bind’ this virus, sickness and disease, and all other forms of violence and economic problems, on earth in the name of Jesus. God, I pray right now for your supernatural safety, healing, and protection over everyone in America, in my home, over my loved ones and myself. Plague, pandemic, stop, cease in the Name of Jesus. Thank You God that our land is healed!
