Although this is a word specifically for America, it is a word that should be heard and heeded by every nation. This is an invitation into invocation!
As I awoke this morning I heard the words, “It is time to fan the flames of prayer throughout America.”
For a number of years my husband and I were the directors of a house of prayer in another nation. The last year that we were there the Holy Spirit asked us to spend the entire year (every hour) praying only for that nation. We had no idea that we were about to be a part of seeing a nation turn and even their government turn to God.
We were one of many teams that God had called to pray within that nation that year. I sense this call once again but for America. I know that there are many praying, teams are praying but I hear God calling for more!
2 Chronicles 7:14-15
If My people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.
God loves to partner with His people and He is even now searching for those who will partner with Him for the sake of His name and our nation. All are called to pray and He is inviting, or exhorting, His people to partner with Him to turn our nation back to God.
This is a time for people open their homes to host prayer on behalf of the nation, for Houses of Prayer to commit to spend the rest of this year to pray for America, for churches open their doors to host ongoing prayer times for the nation, for teams to go into city squares and facilitate prayer for our nation and for families/individuals to commit to pray for America.
This is a call to prayer. God is recruiting His sons and daughters into this militia of prayer that will “take up arms” and fan the flames of prayer to take this nation back!
Will you come together as patriots of prayer at this time? Let us heed the voice of the Lord and come into unity with the intercession of Jesus. Now is the time!
