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.

1. Let God arise, Let His enemies be scattered; Let those also who hate Him flee before Him.
2. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away; As wax melts before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. Psalm 68:2
3. But let the righteous be glad; Let them rejoice before God;Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly.
4. Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
5. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.
Psalm 20:7 "some trust in chariots and and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God."
Psalm 125:3 "The scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land give to the righteous...."
Proverbs 22:8 "He who sows injustice will reap disaster, and the rod of his fury will be destroyed."
Isaiah 14:5 "The LORD has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers."
Psalm 9: 19-20 Arise, O Lord! Do not let mere mortals defy you! Judge the nations! Make them tremble in fear, O Lord. Let the nations know they are merely human."
Psalm 68: 1-2 "God shall arise, His enemies shall be scattered; and those who hate Him shall flee before Him! As smoke is driven away, so You shall drive them away; as wax melts before fire, so the wicked shall perish before God!"
Psalm 2: 1-6, 10-12 "Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans? The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against His anointed one. "Let us break their chains," they cry, "and free ourselves from slavery to God.
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!"
• Pray that all those without Christ that are conspiring against us will now see Jesus and will fall on their faces in awe and repentance. May they acknowledge His greatness before it is too late. (Photo via pixy.org)
• 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.
2) Pray that all foreign interference in our elections will be uncovered and stopped. In many cases these countries were given back door access by corrupt officials in our country. These individuals need to be exposed and brought to justice as well.
3) Pray for the media to report the truth and to not be biased. That bias will be exposed for all to see and the truth will not die in the streets!
4) Ask the Lord to protect eve witnesses to fraud and that each one will have an opportunity to share their witness in court.
5) Let us ask for the fear of the Lord to fall on all involved in making sure the elections were not fraudulent. That the judges in each case will take no bribe nor let pride over run them.
6) Let us pray that all foreign interference in our elections will be uncovered and stopped. In many cases these countries were given back door access by corrupt officials in our country. These individuals need to be exposed and brought to justice as well.
7) Pray that all candidates in the elections of December 3 will want truthful voting and vote counting, that they will support efforts to root out fraud.
8) Pray that the American people will see the need for the delay in establishing the winner of the Presidential election and will support efforts for determining fraudulent voting practices/schemes.
9) Pray that governmental officials will be true to the constitution and rules of government and law, taking no bribe and bearing no false witness.
10) That America will turn to God in this trying time, seeking Him for answers, for health and well being and for truth! May America overwhelmingly bless God!
