Gracious God, we love you, thank you your faithfulness, love and mercy. We pray against the spirit of anti Christ,false witness,terrorism,idolatry, sexual immorality, sorcery,leviathan,jezebel,witchcraft,hatred,wars, pestilences, famine,divination and violence. We ask that your people who are called by your name would humble themselves and repent of their sins and that you would forgive our sins and heal our land. We pray that the spirit of darkness be lifted from America and the scales would be lifted from peoples eyes that they may see the truth and be set free. We pray for a return of all people to the fear of the lord and that the ancient foundations of American be not removed. We pray that in all things Lord you will work for the good of those who love you, who have been called according to your purpose. We pray that Jesus Christ guide the minds of those who govern us to promote the common good according to his will and that the leaders of our nation and the world may have the strength to govern wisely the peoples entrusted to them by the Lord. We pray that you would raise up leaders after Christ own loving heart and bring down those who would seek only their own power and glory. Reveal all corruption and let your justice prevail in the earth. Convict the conscience of any person in position of leadership who fail to serve their people faithfully and cause those who are unfit for office to step down. We pray for revival in our hearts and churches that God would rise up sheperds that are spirit filled, speak the truth in love and manifest the gifts of the holy spirit. We pray the Lord Jesus will grant peace in the land, and we will lie down and no one will make you afraid. We pray that the Lord would remove wild beasts from our land, and the sword will not pass through our country. Lord Jesus we pray that when the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and healing for all of those affected by the coronavirus. Lord in your loving kindness and tender mercies hear our prayers and let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We give you glory for moving by your spirit and answering our prayers. In Jesus name Amen.

Asking for prayers for my wife, Barbara, due to her bout with COVID-19 in August and a bad reaction to her first shot.

She lost the use of her legs for a few days with the COVID-19.

Her legs are still really weak which causes problems walking.

She has seen several doctors and they do not know why she has this problem except it is probably from the COVID-19.

She also has other health issues.

Richard Humphries will lead us through a prayer guide and you’ll be able to pray along together with us. This is one of the best ways we can minister to you during this time of uncertainty. What we do know for certain is that we serve a mighty God. Let’s go to Him together in prayer.
