Here are a few articles online that might be a springboard to a greater understanding of the Ministry of Tears:

Ministry of Tears by Jack Hayford
The ministry of tears is not spoken of very often but it is God at work in us! Most of the time we are ashamed for showing tears in public and maybe even in private. It is something we must learn to honor as a gift from the Lord and seek to understand how God is talking to us at that time.

The following is a excerpt from R.A. Martinez of MAPS Global Mission Base, in Richmond, VA.
MAPS Global Mission Base is a ministry that trains and sends missionaries to the MIddle East, hosts regular prayer for the city of Richmond as well as provides worship and prayer 12 hours a day at their facility. They are looking to move to a permanent facility in the near future. This move and the needs of Richmond are the reasons for the call to prayer and fasting this month. Below is R.A. Martinez's prayer focus for Richmond, VA:
You have heard me teach on the anointing for the Church to contend for a “renaming” of cities across the earth before the return of Jesus (Is 62). This is resonating with leaders throughout the city. Richmond has a unique destiny on it. God is inviting the church in Richmond into a conversation, right now, with Him about the new name and destiny of this city. We are standing in a prophetic balance between what this city will be known for in the next ten, twenty and thirty years. It is truly a generational moment. Instead of pain, it can be promise. Instead of slavery, it can be sending to the nations. Instead of division, it can be unity. Instead of racism, it can be reconciliation. Instead of abandonment, it can be the spirit of adoption. Richmond can be known as a place where people go to have their destinies repaired and restored.
We believe this city is meant to be a stronghold for the gospel. As we respond to Jesus and His leadership in this moment, we believe that there will be in the days to come a season of great openness to the gospel, unending worship, and unprecedented unity.
These two moments are converging this January: our personal prophetic storyline with MAPS and a prophetic window for a generational shift in the city we have been sent to. I believe what we do in the coming days will impact much of what happens in the decades to come.
In light of all of this, I wanted to communicate to you, our staff and church family that we are prayerfully planning this January, to host 21 days of fasting and prayer in the spirit of Daniel 9 and Isaiah 62. Within our spiritual family, our desire is to stand before the Lord in unceasing prayer and worship, dedicating ourselves afresh to be a people who host His Presence. Externally, we are calling believers from around the city to gather and lift our voices in unbroken worship, prayer and fasting for the Lord to forgive our sins, have mercy on our city, and exalt the name of Jesus like a banner over Richmond. We are inviting believers, ministry leaders, churches and anyone who “calls on the name of the Lord Jesus” to join with us in the RIHOP Prayer Room as we stand as a city together before the throne of God night and day.

“Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2
PRAY ‘THE LORD’S PRAYER’ AS THE SUN RISES
Each year we encourage people to pray ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ as the sun rises, this was the example for prayer that Jesus gave to His disciples when they asked how they should pray.
“In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. Do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.” Matthew 6:9-13
PRAY FOR SOULS TO BE SAVED IN 2022
Pray for your unsaved family and friends, pray for your city or town, pray for your nation and the nations to know Jesus.
Thank You God that You love everyone and sent Jesus to save us.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:16-17
Thank You God that You are not willing that any should perish.
"The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance." 2 Pet 3:9
Thank You God that You demonstrated Your love for us on the cross.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Rom 5:8
Thank You God that it is Your goodness that leads people to repentance.
“Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?” Rom 2:4
Thank You God that now is the time of salvation.
“For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you. Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation.” 2 Cor 6:2
Thank You God that the harvest is plentiful, and we ask You to send out more workers for the harvest.
“Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Matt 9:37-38
Thank You God that You have commissioned us all to “GO” preach the gospel and make disciples.
“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.” Matt 28:18-20

The Spirit's inspiration came to me this morning through the book The Grace Outpouring by Roy Godwin and Dave Roberts. The book starts with stories of how prayers of blessings changed people and communities to where God's grace touched lives and livelihoods. I want that for my city, don't you?
I'm convinced that blessings change us, the pray-ers, AND those for whom we pray. Blessings improve us all for the better, refining us in our love for the unlovable. Blessings allow us to become like our Lord and Savior and give us the opportunity to have His heart of compassion and mercy for where we have none. It's our opportunity to grow!
So here are some samples take from inspiration from the aforementioned book and the Holy Spirit's guidance. Let them be a spring board for your prayers.
Don't forget to watch for God's hand to move on these prayer requests in the days to come!
For Our Families
In the name of Jesus, we bless our families with:
-His presence, His Spirit, and the Father’s peace, love and joy;
-Restoration of relationships and an end to all conflicts;
-Healing of all wounds and hurts, restoration of all to health of mind, body and spirit;
-Provision of food, clothing, shelter, education, employment, transportation, and
-Revelation of the Lord, the ability to hear the Lord’s voice and growth in obedience
to His will and ways.
For Our City
In the name of Jesus, we bless Richmond with:
-An outpouring of the spirit – that is, the fire of His love, the freedom in His truth, the
healing of His wisdom;
-Restoration of honesty, truthfulness, good will, and forgiveness from the heart; and
-With brotherly love and restoration of relationships, with kindness, patience, and
For Our State
In the name of Jesus, we bless Virginia with:
-The fear of the Lord and the fire of conviction from the Holy Spirit;
-His peace and a desire to serve God in truth, love, honesty, and humility;
-Prosperity in God’s word and ways and a desire to share the gospel!

-Growth in the gifts of the spirit - discernment, wisdom, knowledge, miracles,
healing, faith, hearing God’s voice/prophecy, tongues, interpretation of tongues;
-His strength and hope to endure persecution and harassment;
-His strength and joy to stand as individuals and groups to witness to God's ways; and
-The ability to speak truth to power.
These are just starter prayers - ask the Holy Spirit to show you specifically what is needed for your area. He is the source of our creativity, revealing sometimes what is in plain sight and other times, pulling back the veil of what is hidden.
And, from the book, The Grace Outpouring, pg 32, here's their acronym that may give you inspiration as you pray blessing prayers:
B - Body: health, protection, strength
L - Labor: Work, income, security
E - Emotional: joy, peace, hope
S - Social: Love, marriage, family, friends
S - Spiritual: salvation, faith, grace
I am aware that not all believers have the same perspective about Halloween. Some still believe it is just another day with little spiritual significance. Growing up as a pastor's kid, my own parents followed the cultural norm of trick-or-treating and had little information on its origins or implications. As an adult, I now understand the truths behind this dark ritual that takes place every year and have chosen to overide its agenda with God's light. The truth is - even if YOU don't see it as a spiritual door to dark places - others do. Those who don't believe in God - or those who blatantly hate Him - take advantage of this time of the year to mock, ridicule, and take aim at anything holy and pure. It is a time of heightened spiritual activity in the enemy's camp with the potential for great harm.
The good news is, we can shift the atmosphere in our towns and communities. As this weekend approaches, regardless of your current understanding of this time of year, I pray we can all agree on the following prayers and proclamations to change the focus from dark to light and from death to life:
Lift up praise and worship to the only true God.
“For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; He is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens.” (1 Chron 16:25-26).
“There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; He lifts His voice, the earth melts” (Psalm 46:4-6).
“You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel” (Hebrews 12:23-24).
“While evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of” (2 Timothy 3:13-14).
“I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness” (John 12:46).
“You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you” (Deuteronomy 28:6-7).
“(They) began to argue with Stephen. But they could not stand up against the wisdom the Spirit gave him as he spoke” (Acts 6:9-10).
“The Lord says to my lord: ‘Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet’” (Psalm 110:1).

These are some uncomfortable truths that need to be seen by any true believer in Christ. Prayerfully consider this information knowing that we have authority over this!

Lord we repent of when our word have been destructive and have not aligned with what You have said. Help us to be watchful of what comes out of our mouths, for it will shift what is in our heart and our world. As we declare Your Word, we thank You that You said Your word will not return to You void but will accomplish that which You please and prosper in the thing it was sent forth to do.
We declare that the righteous will once again be in authority in America, so that the people will rejoice. We say that America WILL fulfill her destiny and return to her foundation as "one nation under God" (Prov 29:2)
Of all the times to pray for life, it's at the start of an abortion!

This prayer is attributed to Rick Ridings
Last night Rick Ridings, a friend who resides and ministers in Israel, sent me a text message. He told me the story below and included the prayer they were instructed to pray in the situation. I believe we should learn from their experience and pray this prayer.
“Here in Jerusalem in 2004, after four years of suicide bombings, killing hundreds of innocent victims, we were crying out to God, that he would bring injustice to an end. He revealed that we should pray for the occult shield of protection to be taken away from the main Islamic leader who was calling for the suicide bombings.
“After a dramatic answer to prayer, the voice of that Islamic terrorist leader was silenced. There were no more successful suicide bus bombings after that day. Here is the prayer, adapted to our current situation:
“So Lord God Almighty, the Lord of the Armies of Heaven, I thank you for the power of the blood of Yeshua, Jesus, over all witchcraft and occult. We come before You now covered by the blood of Jesus and proclaim over the worldwide systems of evil seeking to take control in America and in the nations.
“Let the occult shields of protection be taken away from everyone involved in theft, fraud, and corruption. May their occult shields of protection no longer be able to hide them from being exposed by the light.
“Let witchcraft manipulation be brought to an end in and over the Congress, Senate, the White House, the Supreme Court, the FBI, the CIA, the Department of Justice, and over the state executives, courts and legislatures, and over election integrity.
“As Joshua and Caleb proclaimed to the Hebrews intimidated by the giants, we say to all who are intimidated by today’s giants,
‘...do not rebel against the Lord. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will devour them...their protection is gone...their protection is gone...their protection is gone...but the Lord is with us...Do not be afraid of them.’ (Numbers 14:9)
“We proclaim this in the mighty Name of Jesus, Amen.”

Praying for government is a duty of the people of God. Government is not politics; government is to be influenced by God's people to keep His standards, morals and rules so we can have freedom and peace in our lives. If we don't stand for bringing heaven to earth, we have invited the enemy to rule.

But the one who rules in heaven laughs The Lord scoffs at them. Then in anger He rebukes them, terrifying them with His fierce fury. For the Lord declares, "I have placed My chosen king on the throne in Jerusalem, on My holy mountain.
Now then you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth! Serve the Lord with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling. Submit to God's royal son, or He will become angry and you will be destroyed in the midst of all you activities, for His anger flares up in an instant.
But what joy for all who take refuge in Him!"

Dear City Intercessor,
We have battled COVID for most of 2020. We have battled for our nation for the last four years and more. We have battled for this election for months. And many of us are battle weary. But this message will change your life if you will grab hold of it. This is a word to encourage you first. This week's prayer is at the end.
With fierce determination, my seven-year-old granddaughter declared, “I am done with this Nana, I am done!”
Her unexpected announcement was resolute. That same determination is where we need to be right now with COVID, election fraud and the lies we are fed daily. We are battered by this unending cycle that never seems to stop, just as my granddaughter was after an invasive dental procedure that caused a great deal of bleeding. Her determined response, needs to be ours.
Hours had passed since the surgery and her stomach was growling. But because of the constant flow of blood, she refused to eat. Tears streamed down her little face, as I tried to entice her with soft food. She shook her head and pointed at the gauze in her mouth. The bleeding had been excessive. The dentist warned that it would continue through the night, most likely leaving blood on her pillow.
Brailee hates blood.
I’m not sure what happened, but after I had prepared some mashed potatoes in one more attempt to get something in her stomach, she walked over to me, looked me right in the eye and said, “I am done with this!” She then removed the gauze from her mouth and tossed it in the garbage. She went on to say, “Nana, I am done with the bleeding. It’s done.”
Stunned, her mother and I watched as she then ate three bowls of mashed potatoes. Once finished, I handed her a new piece of gauze to which she replied, “No, I said I am done with it.”
My mind wanted to argue, “But the dentist said…” However, I refused to open my mouth, instead, I linked my faith with hers.
The miracle is that after her declaration, not one more drop of blood came from that procedure. Not one! Not that night, not the next morning. When she said she was done, she was done.
Genesis 27:40 declares, “But when you decide to break free, you will shake his yoke from your neck.”
This is what I saw that day. The faith of a child which broke the yoke off her little neck.
Jesus said in Matthew 18:3; I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless you repent that is, change your inner self—your old way of thinking, live changed lives and become like children, trusting, humble, and forgiving, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Amplified Bible)
When it comes to this trying season we have all endured with COVID, the election results, financial challenges from the shut down or disruption with our kid’s education, how do we combat it? We must change our inner self--our way of thinking.
If we are to enter the kingdom way of living, we must throw out our old way of thinking and become like children, like my granddaughter, Brailee, to trust, humble, and respond fully persuaded of what the Word of God says. Then we must up our minds that it’s done, fully convinced that what He has promised He will perform. We can break off that yoke and see the same results Brailee saw.
If we are going to see an end to COVID-19, fraud and deceit in our government, and unlawful mandates, we must change our way of thinking. And we must once, and for all, remove this yoke from our neck.
Only we can do it for ourselves.
I could not make that decision for Brailee, she had to make it for herself. However, I could lock arms with her and stand in faith with her.
In Matthew 16, upon hearing Jesus talk about his death, Peter rebuked Him. Jesus turned to Peter and said, “Get thee behind me Satan, you are an offense to me, you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of man” (v22-23).
When we repeat news from the media, or the virus, we come in agreement with it. There is power in agreement. If you have done that, I encourage you to repent and renounce your agreement with the lies and break that yoke off your neck. We must have the faith of a child and say, “WE ARE DONE WITH THIS! WE ARE DONE!”
If you are ready to take that step, truly determined to break off the yoke, then join me in prayer as we declare,
“COVID-19, leave our land in Jesus name! Justice come forth NOW! Deaths from this virus and the effects of it, cease now in Jesus’ name! Evil be exposed now! We are done with you! And justice come forth.”
Brailee’s faith that day, and the outcome of it, convicts me to this day. Jesus said, “And a little child shall lead them.” As we come to the end of 2020, I am led to a steady determination that we are done with this. How about you?
It’s time for us to take a firm, faith stand. We are done. If you can’t agree with this, please keep silent. We have a battle to end.
WEEK 20 PRAYER -
Father, Your Word says in Genesis 27, when we grow restless we will remove the yoke of the enemy from our neck. Today, we come into agreement with Your Word and remove every yoke from our neck.
We command the yoke of COVID-19 to be removed from our lives, our cities and our nation. COVID YOU MUST GO. WE ARE DONE WITH YOU TODAY. Leave now in Jesus’ name.
Where illegalities have taken place, may they not only be exposed, but justice come! We say to injustice, WE ARE DONE WITH YOU! Justice come forth in Jesus’ name.
Where election fraud and hidden agendas have taken place we declare to fraud and evil in our governmental offices, WE ARE DONE WITH YOU! Be removed now in Jesus’ name.
Today, Father, we declare IN FAITH, we are done! It is finished! And we stand firm. We will not agree with any evil or enemy. We only agree with what YOU have said. You said if we resist the enemy, he must flee. So we resist this virus, this injustice and this fraud. It MUST NOW FLEE in Jesus’ name.
If we cannot speak Your Word, we will keep silent. We will give no place to the devil from this day forth.
Genesis 27:40, James 4:7, Ephesians 4

Excerpt from "A Whistleblower Dream and and a Vision of a Body Builder" Posted 12/7/20
Let’s pray that the fear of the Lord and the weight of their sins would compel these truth-tellers to come forth.
Pray that the anguish of their own soul would outweigh any threats or intimidation from their handlers.
Pray that as criminal activity is exposed, it pulls the cover off the puppet masters behind the scenes and their strings would be cut.“Who rises up for me against the wicked? Who stands up for me against evildoers? If the LORD had not been my help, my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence.” (Psalms 94:16-17)
Excerpt from ElijahList's post on November 13, 2020 from Dutch Sheets, Batesburg-Leesville, SC
Give Him 15 Minutes in Prayer:
• Say, "How dare those with a godless, humanistic plan for America enact a rebellion against God and this nation? Their foolish plots are futile! Look at how the power brokers of the world rise up as rulers and scheme and confer together against Yahweh and His Anointed. ALL of your plans will be exposed and brought to justice!"
• Command every hidden scheme intended to enact a coup against the United States of America to be revealed! We want all the details to get in the light—what was done, how, and by whom.
• Decree, "The iron rod of Christ's authority will smash all of Hell's rebellious plots against us, even those not yet carried out!"

• Declare, "God's eternal covenant and purpose for America are secure."
A Prayer You Can Pray:
Father, look on the rebellious ones attempting to cancel Your covenant with America. They want a godless, humanistic plan for America and have enacted a rebellion against the United States of America. Look at how the power brokers of the world rise up as rulers, and scheme and confer together against You and Your Anointed. They have made a huge mistake! They have plotted against You! We say their foolish plots are futile! ALL of their plans will be exposed and brought to justice!
We release the strategies of Psalm 2 and say, "The strategies of Hell will be crushed with the scepter and the authority of the King of kings and Lord of lords." We declare that all demonic entities that have been in the process of being uprooted will be fully dealt with now. Out with you!
Lord, it is a terrible thing to be confronted by You, the Living God. The brightness of Your glory exposes all the darkness in us and we are undone. Reveal Yourself to these enemies of America. May they fall on their faces in brokenness and humble repentance. Nevertheless, we ask for justice for what they have done. They have put America through so much turmoil, violence, threats, and upheaval. As these wicked ones and their plans are fully exposed, we declare in Jesus' name, "God's eternal covenant and purpose for America is secure!" Amen.
Christ's rod of authority is falling against the coup against America. It will be fully exposed to the Light! Justice will come and America will be saved!
1) Pray that all illegal activity that took place during the elections will be uncovered and the perpetrators brought to justice.

4) Ask the Lord to protect eve witnesses to fraud and that each one will have an opportunity to share their witness in court.

Book of Wisdom, Chapter 1
Exhortation to Righteousness, the Key to Life
1Love righteousness, you who judge the earth; think of the LORD in goodness, and seek him in integrity of heart;
2Because he is found by those who do not test him, and manifests himself to those who do not disbelieve him.
3For perverse counsels separate people from God, and his power, put to the proof, rebukes the foolhardy;
4Because into a soul that plots evil wisdom does not enter, nor does she dwell in a body under debt of sin.
5For the holy spirit of discipline flees deceit and withdraws from senseless counsels and is rebuked when unrighteousness occurs.
6For wisdom is a kindly spirit, yet she does not acquit blasphemous lips; Because God is the witness of the inmost self and the sure observer of the heart and the listener to the tongue.
7For the spirit of the LORD fills the world, is all-embracing, and knows whatever is said.
8Therefore those who utter wicked things will not go unnoticed, nor will chastising condemnation pass them by.
9For the devices of the wicked shall be scrutinized, and the sound of their words shall reach the LORD, for the chastisement of their transgressions;
10Because a jealous ear hearkens to everything, and discordant grumblings are not secret.
11Therefore guard against profitless grumbling, and from calumny withhold your tongues; For a stealthy utterance will not go unpunished, and a lying mouth destroys the soul.
12Do not court death by your erring way of life, nor draw to yourselves destruction by the works of your hands.
13Because God did not make death, nor does he rejoice in the destruction of the living.
14For he fashioned all things that they might have being, and the creatures of the world are wholesome; There is not a destructive drug among them or any domain of Hades on earth,
15For righteousness is undying. The Wicked Reject Immortality and Righteousness Alike
16It was the wicked who with hands and words invited death, considered it a friend, and pined for it, and made a covenant with it, Because they deserve to be allied with it.
1) Pray that we will "pass the test". Trying times, the waiting, things are unsure, the vexation and hopeless that tries to over run us...are all trials to see if we will keep our eyes on the Lord! Pray for those who do not know the Lord and do not have coping mechanisms. James 1:3 – You know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.
2) Post Election Issues:
a. Every legal vote to be counted. "A false balance is an abomination to the Lord, but a just weight is his delight. When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom. The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them." Proverbs 11: 3
b. Insight and discernment for those uncovering voter fraud.
"And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ."Philippians 1:9–10
c. Protection for those coming forward with the testimony of fraud.
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. "All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish. Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all." Isaiah 41: 10-12
"The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. Fear the Lord, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing." Psalm 34: 7-9
d. A Supreme Court decision that would allow full investigation of voting processes in Pennsylvania to root out fraud and incompetent systems.
Lord, we pray that You would expose all that has been done in secret and bring it into the light! We pray that there would be a hunger and thirst for righteousness (integrity, virtue, purity of life, rightness, correctness of thinking, feeling and acting). We pray that NONE of us would be settled with a falsified outcome, but that we would instead pursue and pray for truth to be revealed! We pray for a nation that desires an election process that will be enveloped in integrity – that this present election would be exposed to the light, and that Americans will be able to trust that EACH voice counts. THAT is why we vote – and Lord, we pray that You would help this nation transform our democratic process to be one that is true.

3) Cocaine, meth and marjiuana, in small amounts being legalized in several states.
From The FamilyFoundation of Virginia on Nov. 11, 2020: "voters made Oregon the first state to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of street drugs such as cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine.' "Voters in the District of Columbia also decided to decriminalize pyschedelic mushrooms."
4) Declare: We are one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all!
5) Protests scheduled for D.C. on Sunday November 15. Report from Capital Hill Prayer Partners blog on 11/12 as quoted below: "WTOP News Radio here in Washington, D.C. is reporting that hundreds of protestors will converge on the city this weekend to demand that President Trump concedes the election.
Meanwhile, about the same number of demonstrators are also set to descend upon the city, demanding that Joe Biden will stand down.
The report indicated that, in addition, numerous local and federal authorities are monitoring this situation and will have their own "police force" in place to quell any anticipated violence. At the same time, many of the streets in the city, near the White House, will be shut down, so traffic will be a mess, too"
EXECUTING JUSTICE THROUGH PRAYER A prayer guide for establishing kingdom principles in government (By Wanda Alger – wandaalger.me)
So, justice is driven back, and righteousness stands at a distance; truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter. (Isaiah 59:14 NIV). In a day when righteous decrees and godly judgments need to be established and upheld in the land, intercessors can pave the way for change by praying these timeless scriptural principles and truths. Pray for these principles to be known as powerful deterrents to evil and essential tools for demonstrating God’s kingdom on the earth. (All Scripture passages are taken from the New International Version unless otherwise noted.)
PRINCIPLES FOR EXECUTING JUSTICE:
Establish righteous judges.
- Choose some wise, understanding, and respected men from each of your tribes, and I will set them over you (Deuteronomy 1:13).
- Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow (Isaiah 1:17).
•Pray that God would raise up godly men and women who can serve as judges.
•Pray that those already appointed would exhibit godly wisdom, understanding, and respect, and that favor would rest on those who do.
Rule with the fear of the Lord.
- He appointed judges in the land, in each of the fortified cities of Judah. He told them, “Consider carefully what you do, because you are not judging for mere mortals but for the Lord, who is with you whenever you give a verdict. Now let the fear of the Lord be on you. Judge carefully, for with the Lord our God there is no injustice or partiality or bribery” (2 Chronicles 19:5-7).
- Do not pervert justice or show partiality. Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the innocent. Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the Lord your God is giving you (Deuteronomy 16:19-20).
•Pray that the fear of the Lord would come upon public officials so that their decisions would demonstrate justice for all without partiality.
•Pray that those serving in elected positions would avoid taking bribes, recognizing patterns of manipulation or flattery to garner favor.
Overturn evil and subdue terror.
- When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers (Proverbs 21:15).
- You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted; You encourage them, and You listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed, so that mere earthly mortals will never again strike terror (Psalm 10:17-18).
•Pray that true justice will overrule the evildoer and nullify the terrorist. (See Amos 5:15)
•Pray for fair trials and hearings that will bring justice to the oppressed and freedom to the captives. (See Psalm 37:32-34)
Stand for truth and integrity.
- Do not spread false reports. Do not help a guilty person by being a malicious witness. Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you give testimony in a lawsuit, do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd, and do not show favoritism to a poor person in a lawsuit (Exodus 23:1-2).
- Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom (James 2:12).
•Pray for integrity in reporting cases and causes, and for those who testify, to do so with honesty, uprightness, and verified facts. (See Deuteronomy 1:16-17)
•Pray that truth and righteous judgments would be spoken of in the spirit of life and liberty, knowing that God’s judgments always bring hope and blessing.
Bring to justice those who oppose the law of the land and the Word of Truth.
- Whoever says to the guilty, “You are innocent,” will be cursed by peoples and denounced by nations. But it will go well with those who convict the guilty, and rich blessing will come on them (Proverbs 24:24).
- Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless (Isaiah 10:1-2).
•Pray that those who have been responsible for unjust decrees and judgments would be brought to account and those guilty would receive righteous judgment.
•Pray for ungodly counsel to be dismissed and overruled, and for righteous wisdom to be favored and celebrated. (See Proverbs 28:5, Isaiah 61:8, and 59:17-19)
Rule with fairness for all people.
- If you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers (James 2:7).
-Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears Him and does what is right” (Acts 10:34).
• Pray that God’s compassion and equal care would be extended to all under the law. (See Philippians 1:9)
• Pray that the fear of the Lord and God’s compassion would rightly discern each heart so that honest and impartial decisions can be rendered. (See James 3:17-18)

In the next few weeks surrounding the national election, we can expect to see increased demonic activity and spiritual warfare. It’s not because the enemy is getting the upper hand or the saints are not prevailing. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. The reason for the increased chaos in the second heaven is because we are going through a national deliverance. Demonic spirits,regional strongholds, and national principalities are being exposed, uprooted, and expelled -and they are mad about their eviction.As seen throughout biblical history, they are putting up a fight and wanting to cause a scene as they know their reign is coming to an end. The ongoing collective repentance, praise, and intercession across this nation is having an impact and we are entering into a breakthrough season of liberation!There are already threats of enemy forces stirring up violence and rioting following the election. But we don’t have to wait and wonder about the aftermath.We have the spiritual authority to divert enemy schemes, subvert opposing plots, and diminish demonic destruction by DIRECTING THE SPIRITUAL TRAFFIC in this hour. Just as Jesus had command over demonic forces and redirected their destructive plans, we have the same authority to limit the manifestations and distractions AS THEY LEAVE. Let’s follow His example by speaking to the storms, silencing the voices, and establishing Kingdom rule in our land in the coming weeks:

Pray for God to give you and other Christians strength through the power of the Holy Spirit in the face of civil unrest.
Adapted from www.City-by-City.org
Father, according to Jeremiah 29:7, we are to seek You for the peace and prosperity of our city. Today, we pray to You for the welfare of Richmond, knowing its welfare will determine our welfare.
As citizens of Richmond, Richmond is the place You have given us to dwell in and to exercise our authority over. We declare Richmond drinks water from the rain of heaven. It is a land for which our God cares for, the eyes of the Lord our God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year. (Deut. 11:10-12)
We thank You that Your thoughts for Richmond are thoughts of peace and not evil, to give us a good future and continuous hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)
We bow our hearts before You this day and we repent of the sins of our city. We ask You to forgive our sins and cleanse Richmond from all unrighteousness. We ask for a divine visitation of the Holy Spirit in Richmond. May our city, as a whole, turn to God. We declare Jesus is Lord over this city. (Neh. 1:6-7, 1 John 1:9)
We praise and worship You today and thank You for bringing us here to dwell. From this day forth, we will only speak Your words and Your will over our city. We take authority over every negative word that has been spoken over Richmond and we declare them null and void in Jesus name. We declare every curse or prayer of evil over our city to be powerless- in JEsus' name–they will produce no fruit here. We decree that God rules and reigns in Richmond from this day, forevermore.
We declare fear cannot reside in Richmond. Fear, in the name of Jesus, you must go now. We further declare that division will not reign in our city. We cast out the spirit of division. We declare unity reigns in Richmond. Where there is unity, God commands the blessing of life evermore –therefore Richmond is inundated with life ever more from this time forth. (Ps. 133:3)
We declare today, sickness and disease will not gain a foothold in Richmond. We declare the God-fearing people in our city are strong in God and in the power of His might. There will be no feeble among us! We walk in the fullness of healing that was purchased for us at the Cross. (Ps. 105:37)
We declare this day that Richmond and its governmental officials will do ONLY what is good and right in the eyes of the Lord. We ask You God to remove every elected and non-elected official who does not have the best interest of the people in his/her heart. We ask that only the upright dwell in our government (Proverbs 2:22). We ask You to remove any evil stronghold that is present in our government. We declare that in Richmond, its leaders and officials will observe and obey the laws and commandments of the Lord. We commit this day to build fortified walls around our city. Walls of the spoken Word of God. Walls of praise and worship. Walls of prophetic declaration. Walls that cannot be demolished, but will forever prosper, in Jesus’ name. (2 Chron. 14:2-7, 1 Tim. 2:1-4)
We thank You, that as we pray, within Richmond, You give us rest on every side. We declare our city is at peace and undisturbed at all times because it is under Your reign. (2 Chron. 14:7) Your Word says, “Unless the Lord guards the city, we stay awake in vain.” We ask You to guard Richmond from this day forth, knowing whatever we ask in prayer, we receive. Thank You God, for guarding Richmond day and night. We thank You that as the mountains surround Jerusalem, You surround us and our city, forever more. We ask You to send warring angels to surround our borders, and keep out all evil and those with evil intent. We declare that the gates of Richmond are closed to those involved in drugs, trafficking, greed, pride, murder and other evils, that theybe redeemed or leave our city and never come back in Jesus name. (Psalm 127:1, Ps. 125-2, Ps 91:11-12)
We declare and decree, Richmond's streets will be filled with healthy people, young and old, who have been and desire to be blessed by God. That our children, our boys and girls, will play daily in our city, safe and unafraid for God is watching over our city. We declare and decree this day, Richmond is at total peace, is living in God's prosperity, is walking in obedience to God and Your Word, and dwelling together in unity. We ask You to bless our city. May Your hand forever be upon Richmond. Send us an outpouring of Your Spirit!. May Your glory to be revealed in Richmond. May Richmond bring You glory. We ask all of this in Jesus' mighty Name . Amen. (Zech. 8:4-5)
