40 Prayer to Change America
(Day 15: Nuclear War)
"'No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,' says the Lord." --- Isaiah 54:17 (NKJV)
We live in a day of terrible weaponry. A push of a button from far away can destroy whole cities. No longer is war confined to the combantants, but to entire populations. Years ago, President Ronald Reagan directed our military scientists to develop a shield to protect us, especially from nuclear attack. The "Star Wars" shield certainly could provide some protection, but it couldn't keep us from attacks.
What if there was something (Someone) who could shield us from all attack? The promise of God to His people is astounding.
No one would suggest that the Scripture above from Isaiah gives a nation some kind of Divine protection from physical weaponry or attack. On the other hand, men and women of God through the years have stood upon this verse to handle the attacks of satan and have experienced the astonishing protection of God.
what if the unified church began to pray prayers of Spiritual protection over our nation? Could we as believers, in prayer, blunt the attempt ot the enemy of our souls to sideline our nation and remove us from our place in God's plan?
- Thank the Lord for His promise of protection for the servants of the Lord.
- Ask the Lord to raise up a shield of protectionover our nation.
- In the Name of Jesus, declare a resistance against the enemy's attacks on the godly foundations of the United States.
Father, Your promises are always sure. Thank You that You give Your servants privilege of walking in victory and refuting every word spoken against us. Now, Lord, help us in wisdom to do this on behlf of our nation. Lord, awaken Your people out of apathy and help us to stand against the attacks of satan against our nation. May no weapon of the enemy prevail against our nation, but may each of those weapons come to naught against our Shield and Deliverer!
