Call To Prayer For Our Nation
from Dutch Sheets Ministries

Do not make the fatal mistake of laying the results of this election solely on the will and sovereignty of God. As He did in 2000, God is requiring a partnership with the praying church in order for righteousness to prevail. We must not allow a faulty theology that simply says “we have asked God to intervene, the rest is up to Him” to give us a false sense of security.

Sometimes asking is all that is necessary, sometimes not. In this battle it absolutely is not. Just as when Israel did not possess Canaan, and also when Jerusalem missed a visitation from Heaven in Christ's day, God's will alone will not decide this election (Hebrews 3:18-19; Luke 19:44). In 1963 we forfeited God's will by removing His influence from our schools; in 1973 we missed God's will by allowing abortion to be legalized. And make no mistake about it, our lack of action at this point in time can cause us to miss God's will and send us spiraling downward again.

We must move into spiritual warfare now as never before. There is a persistence that must be exercised, striking the ground until complete victory is assured (2 Kings 13:14 -19). By those who understand the principles of spiritual warfare, there is a kingdom force that must be employed in the spirit until the powers of darkness yield to the forces of light (Daniel 10:12-14; Matthew 11:12; Ephesians 6:12). There is a binding and loosing that must occur until confusion reigns in the enemy's camp (Matthew 16:18 -19). The kingdom rule and will of God must be released in intercession and declaration until Heaven's desires prevail on earth (Matthew 6:10 ).
Don't let up. Intensify! The next 3 days will determine the fate of America for decades—maybe forever.
