Thank you for joining us in prayer for the healing of our Nation. We incorporate certain strategies in our Prayer Calls according to several biblical principles, which are listed below. The purpose of implementing these principles is that there are blessings connected to doing them. When we implement biblical principles, we then pray effective and strategic prayers. The more we develop praying according to biblical principles, we grow in the effectiveness of our prayers.
We have many prayer team members who testify to changes in their lives and their relationships by learning and implementing these biblical principles as they apply them with our prayer topics. May you also be blessed as you join with us in prayer.
Sometimes it takes a while for our prayer team members to learn how to implement these principles. Please feel free to ask questions for clarification. You are welcome to reply to the prayer call emails with any questions you may have.
We implement repentance of each topic for ourselves, our generations and as a Nation in order to be forgiven in these areas. In doing so, we gain spiritual authority to pray for overcoming evil with good and for blessings of replacement.
Whether you wish to pray aloud or to just participate by listening in, thank you for joining us in prayer. Praying together in unity on the call is an important aspect of our prayers. We know from Scripture there is power in confessing our sins to one another, and there is power when coming together in unity.
The biblical principles with an asterisk (*) are the principles that are foundational for each prayer. Please include at least those in your prayer. The other principles are welcome also.
An email is sent at the end of the week prior to our call with a list of prayer points for repentance. Each repentance point has Scripture references for replacement. Below is a sample of a prayer containing prayer points and the implementation of the biblical principles. This is a sample of what it looks like to implement the biblical principles. It is a sample and not a formula. Included are three examples of the repentance and replacement topics in the sample prayer. Please note that this is a sample only as putting in three topics with all the biblical principles exceeds the recommended time frame of 2-4 minutes for each prayer for the actual call. We want to allow as many who would like to pray to have the opportunity to do so. Please be encouraged to implement as many of the biblical principles in your prayers as you pray through the topics during the week in your personal prayer time.

Dear Heavenly Father,
As a member of the royal priesthood, please forgive me, my generations and us as a Nation for how we have broken covenant with you in these areas of pride.1,2,3 Please forgive us of speaking prideful words that are prideful in magnitude and extend, prideful in number and intensity.1,2,3 I choose to replace these prideful words of boasting for me to boasting in the Lord.4 It is written7 in Psalm 34:2, My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Please forgive me, my generations and us as a Nation for saying we will prevail by the words of our mouth.1,2,3 Forgive us of pride and arrogance thinking that we will be saved by the words of our mouths.1,2,3 I acknowledge and declare with the words of my mouth that the Lord is our only Savior and Redeemer.4 It is written7 in Isaiah 49:26, “All flesh shall know that I, the Lord, am your Savior, And your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”
Father, please forgive me, my generations and us as a Nation for the pride of saying that our lips belong to us.1,2,3 By thinking as such, we speak arrogantly and do not speak the words that we are to speak as messengers of the Lord of hosts. Instead, I replace this with speaking the law and truth from my lips.4 May we as a body of the royal priesthood speak the law and truth from our lips.4 May we grow in our ability to speak justice and may we always keep knowledge with our lips.4
Father, I forgive those who have caused me, my generations and our Nation pain by speaking prideful and boastful words. I forgive those who have caused us pain by saying they will prevail by the words they have spoken. I forgive those who have caused us pain by the words they have said when saying their lips belong to themselves. Lord, I release them from the debt that was caused by what was stolen, killed or destroyed in this process. 5
Father, I bless Israel and the Jews to boast in your mighty works. May they continually declare that you are their only Savior and Redeemer. Please help them to keep justice and knowledge with their lips. 6 I pray this in the name of Jesus, amen.
