Seventeen Days of Prayer - Day Thirteen - January 16, 2021
Father, today is day thirteen, and this morning, I’m struggling. I’m grieved by what I see and the discussions I’ve had with people so blinded by evil—people I love. People I care about, and they can’t see what is true. They believe all the corrupt media says, and because of this, the hate in our country is oppressing. Father, deliver us from evil.
You, O Lord, compelled me to pray for these seventeen days, so give me Your Words. Help me see Your strength and power on this day thirteen—thirteen, the number that shakes many people—the number associated with depravity and rebellion in Scripture. Does this number not encompass all that is happening in our land?
The evil, as thorns that grow up and choke the Word of God, overruns our land. And although these evil ones are men of great stature and we feel like grasshoppers, You gave this land to those who do not live by bread alone, by every Holy Word that proceeds from Your mouth.
If You, Lord, delight in us, and Jesus is not returning for His church very soon, then give us Your power to take back what we’ve lost. Help us to not rebel against You, nor fear the people who have rejected You. If You, Almighty God, are with us, then who can be against us? Let these evil ones devoured and remove their protection.
Surround those in our government who are working against the evil and to expose the lies with Your hedge of protection. Keep them in the palm of Your hand, give them Your wisdom, direct their paths, and make their way prosperous for good.
Lord, make us stand firm with them and against the giants—the evil government trying to take over our country. Help us fight against them in the name of the Lord of hosts with Your five smooth stones of grace.
As Goliath defied the armies of the living God, give us, Your children, the strength and fortitude to stand and proclaim as David, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you…that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel [America]. Then all this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.”
“Do not be deceived, you enemies of the Lord, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”
In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen, and amen.
