Kay Horner, COA National Coordinator, wrote a piece which I posted on Facebook. She compared two light sources, a laser and a spotlight. The power of the laser comes from the unity of the light beams. Every part of the beam has almost the exact same direction and the beam will not waver. It is this unity that gives the laser its power. So as we unite in prayer, we will operate in power like a laser beam focused on the enemy to do damage to his kingdom. As we move through different areas of prayer, it is not that we have to pray the same words, but we must be the same in spirit and focus. Remember we serve a God that is bigger than any issue that we name…His name is higher. His power is greater…His wisdom will stop the mouths of kings and rulers. We declare that Wise County will be a leader in the battle to advance God’s Kingdom and purposes. His people will be bold and do great things in His name.
Pray for the leadership in our nation, state and local government. 1 Timothy 2:1-4 First of all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions and thanksgiving be offered on the behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibilities, that we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life, a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way. For such praying is good and right, and it is pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior who wishes all men to be saved and to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the truth. Lift up our President, Barak Obama. Pray for wisdom from God for governing USA. Pray that his thoughts will be protected and he will be surrounded with people of wisdom. Revelation for issues overseas – God give him dreams. Keep alliance with Israel – open his eyes to see the value of keeping this alliance.
Lift up our Texas Senators – John Cornyn and Ted Cruz. We declare an uncommon wisdom in matters of government and diplomacy.
Life up our House Representatives – Kay Granger, Mac Thornberry, Michael Burgess
Pray for our local leaders that represent the people in Wise County: mayors, the court system, judges, District Attorney, Justice of the Peace, Police, Sheriff, officers, firemen, and Highway Patrol.
Pray for revival in the Nation Pray for God to bring back to life that which is dead or dormant. It’s time for revival to start in the pew and grow to influence all areas of society and leadership. It's time for the nation to recognize areas where they no longer put their trust in God and turn back to Him.
If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, Then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Equip the Saints to be an Army – Let the Church be the Church It's time for continued awaking of God people It's time to reinforce true relationships – each other (person to person and church to churche) – and to God Open our hearts to the needs around us, ears to hear the cry of the hurting and lost, eyes to see. Cause us to protect what God has given us and see beyond that which is in front of us to what is beyond (strategy for the future)
For Wise County Continue to bind us (the church) together in unity – beyond denominations Give us arms of love and deliverance – A safe haven Pray for continued protection for sheriff and police staff and that as growth occurs that we will not see increase in crime. · Drug free – Abuse free Knit the family together – father’s hearts to the children Pray for our children – they are the next generation. Pray for revivalists to be raised up to see a revival that never dies and that the Kingdom of God will be advanced for this generation and all future generations. Let there not be a child that does not know about God.
Pray for Israel
