Do you feel frustrated by the decisions our Countries leaders make at times? New laws seem to get passed daily and they can feel unfair or don’t make a lot of sense? Are you wondering how we could possibly influence the decisions they make?
Homelessness feels rampant. Hurt, despair, families, finances and the justice system feel increasingly attacked and it feels like there is not a whole lot we can do about it… but guess what? There actually is! Complaining does nothing effective… but one thing does…
We are called to pray, my friend! We are called to fight for our city, province, and country and our leaders on our knees. We are called to stop complaining and start praying. There is where we will find change. God is God after all!
You may be wondering, why wouldn’t God just make the changes needed without us needing to pray? Why cant the world just be perfect?
Because He wants us to come to Him. To seek Him. We are in an unseen battlefield and prayer is how we cab win the battle. Check out my latest post on prayer here.
“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”2 Chronicles 7:14
So what if we prayed together friend? Can you imagine what would happen if we all teamed up to pray for our cities and country together?
Almost 10 years ago, the Lord awakened my heart to see that there is a bigger agenda in these last days. In fact, according to scripture, this was always part of the plan. The enemy knows his time is short before God’s great coming for His people. But as the world gets darker, the Lord’s glory shines even brighter! This is an exciting time to live and you were created for such a time as this. So use your unique abilities and gifts to reach out to those around you, and fight for what is pure, noble, just and good.
The Lord has given us the power and authority to change things in His power and might for His glory and for our good.
So let’s stand up today friend! Let’s fight for what is right. For the Lord to lead our country, and for justice to prevail on our streets. We are all called to fight for our land in the power of the Holy Spirit. So what does this look like?
How to battle for our city
The Lord showed me to gather together at our city gateways once a year in small groups, and spend an hour praying and worshiping together for an hour or so. And what better day to do this than when the weather is beautiful in early summer on our country’s birthday!
We pray for our city and our country, the leaders and the people that live there. For His will to prevail in our land and commit it over to Him. We pray what needs to be healed would be healed, and restoration and victory would come. For prosperity and blessing over our land, and that what needs to flee would be gone in Jesus name!
We have a job to do friend! What if we could be a part of this great end-time battle for victory, for those who need freedom (we all do) and for the Lords plan to prevail in our lives. We need His protection! In return, we see beautiful blessings in our faithfulness when we commit our lives, plans, and worries over to the Lord in prayer.
Feel free to share and print off this poster. I happen to be Canadian, but the United States birthday is coming up as well, so I have actually created a poster for your beautiful country as well (see the links below):)
