The trumpet is blowing, the alarms are sounding, wake-up church! What does the church need to wake-up to? It’s a wake-up call for the church to have a voice and take action in the spheres of society. The Lord would like His people to occupy this land which was founded upon godly principles of freedom. While we were tending to our own flocks, the enemy was positioning his agenda in the leadership roles of society. Now, here we are! It is a full onslaught collision of darkness versus light! Covid-19 became the access road for the devil to unleash all his spirits. The exposed evil in this hour is way above what we could have thought or imagined. How do we respond?
We respond strategically. What is the counsel of the Lord to you? There are ways to make our voice heard in heaven and in the earth. Our voice unto heaven is prayer. A cry for mercy and justice and for our enemies to encounter Jesus. God will lead the way in prayer as we hear and respond to His heart. Our voice in the earth will look different for each of us. How is the Lord leading each of us to be heard? May we not be fearful, for “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV.
What the Lord has laid on my heart is to gather at least one church from all 50 USA churches, to participate in prayer on October 3rd. I believe as the church unites in prayer we will see a mighty move of God across our land. There are many prayer initiatives from various churches and ministries. The plans and purposes of God for our nation have not come into fruition. The battle is real, it’s fierce, but our God is all mighty and all powerful and His army is moving! Are you in? I am!
