“I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one. Ezekiel 22:30
As part of a global prayer movement restoring America’s soul, on September 25-26, thousands gathered on the Washington Mall. They prayed according to 2 Chronicles 7:14, asking the Lord to “forgive our sins and heal our land.”
A PRMI intercessor who was at the event said;
On September 26, I had the joy of witnessing firsthand 100,000+ righteous followers of Jesus on their knees in corporate repentance for the United States. It didn’t matter if you were Pentecostal, Catholic, Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Baptist, Messianic — black, white, brown, yellow — male or female —- we were united because we came together as Jesus followers — UNITED IN CHRIST. I know God heard our prayers because the Blood of Jesus gives us access to the very Throne room of the Almighty Creator.PRMI Intercessor
Confessing sins and turning to the Lord is the first step in the vast concert of prayer the Holy Spirit is calling us to.
The Lord is showing us the next steps:
Standing in the Gap for an Outpouring of the Holy Spirit
The Lord is calling us to pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, bringing genuine revival. We need to pray people will return to Jesus Christ the Messiah, accepting who He says He is.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life! No one comes to the Father except through Me.”John 14:6 TLV
We need to pray that they would accept Jesus as Lord and savior. But that the Holy Spirit would baptize them to be empowered witnesses for Christ in this world.
Such a Spirit-filled revival would spread to the ends of the earth and transform our societies. Followers of Jesus, empowered by God to restore the Kingdom to Israel and witness for Jesus Christ to make disciples of all nations. (Acts 2:4-8)
Standing in the Gap: Praying Against the Works of the Enemy
As the Holy Spirit moves, advancing the Kingdom of God, Satan continues to try and block and hinder Kingdom advancement. So, as the Holy Spirit leads, intercessors must pray for the unmasking and defeating the demonic strongholds Satan is building to obstruct God’s Kingdom.
Right now, in the last quarter of 2020, strongholds of Satan on both the Radical Left (BlackLivesMatter, Antifa, and other Marxist based groups) and the Radical Right (White Supremacist, Nazis, and KKK) are clashing together.
Satan seeks to destroy the Judeo- Christian foundations of the United States embedded in America’s founding documents. Spirit-led intercession against the enemy’s schemes will begin to break apart these strongholds and frustrate the enemy’s plans.
Praying for a Recovery from COVID
The COVID-19 pandemic effects continue to provide challenges to the economy, the church, and people’s general mental health everywhere. Ongoing prayer for the recovery of the world’s economy, the church’s impact, and outreach as she figures out how to minister in this new environment of social distancing, lockdowns, and meeting restrictions is essential.
There is no clear end in sight, so praying for an end for the pandemic and the nations’ recovery is vital.
Standing in the Gap for the United States of America
No matter who wins the 2020 Presidential elections, the United States of America remains divided. The division, polarization, animosity, and outright hostility is creating a hazardous spiritual atmosphere.
No political party has the answer to the problem because it is not a political problem. It is a problem of the heart.
Jesus Christ is the answer to the problem, not just of the USA but of the whole world. However, following the US presidential election results, America will be in a very vulnerable place. Believers, intercessors, and prayer warriors need to stand in the gap for the nation.
Join a Prayer Network
As a ministry, we are forming a network of people who will continue to press into this prayer work of standing in the Gap for the USA. If you feel that the Holy Spirit is prompting you to be a part of that network of intercessors, please let us know using the following form:
I will be working during the times and days mentioned. In Nov. My heart and prayers are in agreement, but being on the west coast puts this prayer event during my work schedule.
Dear Brad, I said earlier today Election Day 3rd November 2020. I spoke about the President and waiting for the keys to open doors. I totally missed the fact that like Florida are key states. I believe that we are waiting for the KEY STATES results. Lord Open the USA doors and hand the keys to President Trump!
