Praying for the Nation, Week 24 – Advance the Kingdom

matthew 633I realize it’s been three weeks since I last sent out prayer directives, but I trust you are continuing to do what God has said to do. This is a hard road to walk sometimes as an intercessor, but know that our prayer is not in vain. Our walking out the prophetic act and doing what God has told us to do will be fruitful. We may not see an answer right this minute, but we must remember God will often work in seasons. Right now we are sowing love in intercession, sowing tears, sowing prophetic declarations and sowing blessings over our nation when we speak to the jars of dirt. Just as in the natural, we must allow time for these things to sink in, take root and grow before we see fruit.

As we pray, declare, decree, prophesy and speak over our jars, we are facilitating the advance of the Kingdom. There is a deluge of prophetic words coming forth from Camp Gloom and Doom and its negative Nelly’s who want us to stop what we are doing, hang and shake our heads in agreement with the coming “judgment”, and stop trying to occupy the land the Lord has given us. Remember, we are not called to agree with Camp Gloom and Doom, we have been enlisted into Camp Grace and Love for the distinct purpose of speaking love back into our nation.

Be careful, little ears, what you hear. Be careful, little eyes, what you see. Guard your gates well. I do believe there is a shaking coming, however, not the fear-mongering, run for your life, whack your brain against your skull shaking, but a love shaking. One that bewilders us with the glory of God, that knocks us to our knees in awe of Him and His Goodness. A shaking that fills us with wonder and gladness. The joy of His Presence.

Stay obedient, press in and continue to declare love.


  • Speak words of love, life and affirmation over your jar of dirt. Remind it of the love God had when He spoke the land into existence and how He called it good.
  • Declare your state to have love for all of it’s people, from pre-born to elderly, for it to be compassionate and gracious.
  • Declare a rising up of God’s people into the secular, educational and political arenas in order to demonstrate Kingdom principals and Kingdom authority.
  • Speak over the local Church in your state, prophesy unity, Kingdom advancement and Kingdom equality.

One day the Pharisees asked Jesus, “When will the Kingdom of God come?” Jesus replied, “The Kingdom of God can’t be detected by visible signs. You won’t be able to say, ‘Here it is!’ or ‘It’s over there!’ For the Kingdom of God is already among you” (Luke 17: 20-21 NLT).

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need (Luke 12:31).
