Foundation Scriptures:
Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. 14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.  James 5:13-18 KJV 

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4 KJV

Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.  2 Corinthians 2:11 KJV

Don’t Be Ignorant of Satan’s Devices.
The enemy has an agenda for America and the nations of the world.
Isaiah 14:12-15 KJV – “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. 15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.”
The devil is a fallen angel – he has always wanted his throne to be higher than God’s, but he was cast out of heaven and defeated by Jesus.
The devil hates mankind, because God loves us so much.
The devil is jealous of us, because unlike him, we are made in the image of God and created with a free will.
Jesus defeated him and took the keys of death, hell, and the grave.
The devil’s lease is almost up. He knows his time is short.
He is putting up his biggest fight, as the curtain comes down.
There is a mighty encounter coming, between light and darkness.

Satan’s Plan.
The devil’s plan involves bringing as many people and nations under his influence as he can – through lies, slavery, rebellion, debt, sin, lust, the works of the flesh, etc.
1 John 2:16 KJV - “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
You can see his influence through Hollywood, governments, and the mainstream media.
The Bible tells us in the books of Daniel and Revelation that the devil will try to bring multiple nations under one government, one system of worship, and one economy (money system).
This global system – the concentration of power – is the spirit of Anti-Christ.
In these end-times, the contrast between the light and the darkness will become more and more obvious.

Exercising the Authority You’ve Been Given, in Prayer.
Jesus gave us the power and authority to speak His will in the earth.
Matthew 18:18 KJV - “Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
We need to press in in prayer, for America, now more than ever.
America, and her Constitution, is the last bastion against the New World Order.
We are nine months into the new administration and the globalists are frantic.
Pray that the globalist agenda would be set back.
One more hour of daylight – the sun can’t set just yet.
A mass mobilization of the Body of Christ to bring in the harvest.
The end-time transfer of wealth – so the resources are there to build the Kingdom of God.
That total confusion would be wreaked in the camp of the wicked.
Let every hidden thing be exposed and leaked out.
That the disciples of Jesus rise up and bear much fruit (John 15:1-7).
That we (the Church) would rise up, in Jesus’ Name, take territory, and possess the land.

Do Not Be Afraid.
Joshua 1:8 KJV - “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
