Strategic & Tactical Prayer Objectives – #7

It’s time to fight against the left’s counterattack, which the rude, crude, and in deep denial Hillary Clinton refers to as the, “Resistance.” I prefer to call it a rebellion against God’s anointed authority (Romans 13:1-10). For new readers of this blog, I attempt to analyze events from a Biblical Worldview. Since my last post, President Donald J. Trump has fired former FBI Director, James Comey for cause, President Trump has completed his first foreign mission, the shadow government promotes sedition supported by the worthless, lame-stream media (including the left-leaning FOX NEWS), the president withdrew the United States from the Paris climate accord, and the world witnessed many more tragic cowardice attacks.

So, what has all of this have to do with strategic and tactical prayer on behalf of our nation? I believe we have to answer this question with another question. Is the King of the Universe, Jesus, raising an army of committed prayer warriors? Marlene Bagnull, Director of the GreaterPhiladelphia and Colorado Christian Writers’ Conferences believes He has. For both conferences, the stated objective is, “God is raising up an army of Christians to ‘Write His Answer’ to the critical needs facing our nation and the world.” I believe this is true. Christian writers need to be prayer warriors. I think it also applies to followers of Jesus He has called to this fight between good and evil. If this is so, does our LORD, Jesus, have a revealed strategy for us to implement? I also believe scripture shouts a resounding, “Yes.”
As I wrote in my last post, not every believer is called to pray strategically and tactically, just like not every citizen or subject serves in the military, and not every member of the service, engages in battle. But sooner or later, followers of Jesus will face a real fight. Being well-trained and armed makes us ready to engage when called to battle. Above all, we need to receive clear orders from our Commander of the Hosts. Why is clarity important? Imagine that you are in a physical battle full of gunfire, smoke, screaming, and explosions. Without clear directions, you could find yourself in trouble, fast. The opposite of clarity is confusion, and the Bible teaches where there is confusion there is every evil work. Clarity combats confusion.
Therefore, for believers who are not familiar or comfortable with receiving direction from God, tactically pray for clarity. For example, Father, I understand King Jesus’ overall objective and command to go and make disciples. Please provide me clear direction how I might participate. Is there a loved one, a friend, neighbor, or co-worker You want me to help? Grant me eyes to see and ears to hear what Your Holy Spirit is saying, leading, and guiding. I confess, I do not know what to do, but my eyes are on You, LORD, and I wait for You to give clear direction as an answer to my prayer. In the powerful name of Jesus, thank You and amen.
Praying strategically, I ask: Heavenly Father, I know the LORD is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward everyone, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. I say, “Yes,” to Jesus, and I will support, defend, and advance the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and the call for all people to repent and come to salvation. I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same. I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of Your high calling, obeying the leading of Your Holy Spirit, so help me Father.
Praying tactically, I ask: Heavenly Father, Jesus taught us to forgive 7 times 70. The left continues to poke, prod, and provoke. They harass Your people, threaten us with law suits, and use media, political, and economic pressure to silence us who speak and write the truth that Jesus is the way, truth, and life, and no one comes to the Father except through Him. LORD Jesus, You delegated authority to your followers to use the keys of the kingdom. I bind (arrest and confine) the hostile voices clamoring to destroy President Trump and all who support him. Confuse, frustrate, and cancel the plans of unforgiving Democrats and their anarchist axis of evil. Drain their energy, both physical and financial in correspondence to their bankrupt spiritual condition. Expose them and fill them with shame for they are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked. I release (or loose) the Holy Spirit to convict them of sin, righteousness, and judgment because they rebel against You, LORD, The Holy One. Set them free to come to repentance and seek forgiveness from You. Obeying Your command, I choose to forgive them for their sinful offenses and I ask for an anointing of Your grace to help bring Your enemies I encounter to repentance.
And Heavenly Father, I continue to ask that You expose, restrain and destroy the works of the shadow government attempting to demolish President Trump and his administration. Specifically, bind the activity of Satan manifesting through the former occupier of the White House, and the mentally unstable HRC. Continue to help President Trump select leaders of impeccable moral character and courage. Please, bring to justice government employees that have violated the law and leaked classified information to a colluding press. Please, LORD, frustrate, confuse, and cancel the plans of Satan placed in the hearts and minds of those who do not recognize and acknowledge Your governance.
Jesus, You alone know the hearts and minds of those people who practice wickedness. Please bring them to repentance and salvation. However, if anyone has crossed the line and sealed their fate, I ask that You deliver them over to Satan for the destruction of their flesh, so that their spirits might be saved.
Father, I lift President, Donald J. Trump and his administration. Grant them Your divine safety, expose any attempts to cause them harm, and I bind all thoughts, voices and actions to assassinate the president. Extend to our new leaders Your supernatural wisdom to confound those who think they are wise. Commit them to uphold the Constitution, push back the wicked, progressive transformation toward government dependence and godless socialism, and restore our Republic to moral excellence, honorable character, and civil order.
Encourage Your many followers of Jesus to walk through the door of opportunity You have opened. Our enemy is angry and will never stop in attempts to gain control of the entire world and remove God and His people from the Earth. But, he will not succeed. Grant us boldness to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus and make disciples like never before in recorded history. This year, grant me the privilege, opportunity, and joy to help someone embrace Your Holy and eternal salvation. Begin a sweeping revival and another Great Awakening that will move across America, expand to cover the earth, and prepare the bride of Christ for His return. Release Your army to advance the Kingdom of God, push back the forces of darkness, and bring uncountable souls to salvation before You bring about the close of this age. Let us move forward into the battle secure in the knowledge of Your unfailing love for Your children. The enemy will not be able to stop the movement of Your almighty hand.
If you agree with these prayers, please repeat them to the LORD. The Holy Scriptures teach how can two walk together unless they be in agreement, and a three-strand cord cannot be easily broken. Please, seek God regarding your part. This day we fight with our King. Join the battle. Pray fervently for your loved ones, friends, neighbors, co-workers, communities, towns, cities, states, and nation. I linked a couple of additional sources to help you get into the fight (Media Equalizer, Media Equalizer Facebook page, and Pray for President Trump), and combat lies with truth. Let’s take this full-scale war to the enemy and be overcomers for The Commander of the Hosts.

I declare, “AMEN!”
