Praying from the Father's Heart

Jesus, our ultimate example, said that he would only say those things He heard the Father saying (John 12:49-50) and only did what he saw the Father doing and “in like manner.” (John 5:19) As our nation is experiencing mounting racial tensions, lawless outbreaks and violence, where truly many are in fear and hopelessness, the enemy knows if we partner with a political spirit, we risk forfeiting our kingdom influence. As we embrace God’s Word and His definition of heavenly wisdom as the standard for our thoughts and attitudes, let it be said of us that the enemy could find nothing in us (John 14:30).

Let us be encouraged that our prayers are not just competing voices amid the chaos.  The decrees of cleansed hearts release the power of God to overturn the enemy’s plans and shift atmospheres over this nation.  Angels are performing His word as we stand in the gap.  Let’s lean into the heart of the Father and wield our effective, fervent prayers from hearts that are bowed low and imitate His posture.

Scripture: But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.  Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.” James 3:17-18

Prayer: Lord, we ask that you search our hearts and cleanse by fire anything in us that would partner with a political spirit or lean on the wisdom of the world.  We ask for the wisdom from above and the revealing of your heart in and through us.  We bind fear, division and violence, and we release the powerful ministry of reconciliation over this nation and ask for the Shalom of God to come mightily in our land.  In Jesus’ Name.  Amen.
