and be lifted up you everlasting doors:
that the King of glory may come in.
"Who Is this King of Glory?"
Adonai strong and mighty,
Jehovah-Gibbor Milchamah, The LORD, Mighty In Battle!!!
As a people who are called by Your Name who recognize the blessings of being American, because this nation was founded on Your principles, we know that when we come to You in genuine humility and repentance to seek Your face and confess our sins, that according to Your Word, You will not only hear our prayers, but also that You will cleanse us from all unrighteousness and heal our land. (2 Chronicles 7:14-15, 1 John 1:9) We confess sins of complacency, prayerlessness, selfishness, vanity, lust and sexual immorality, envy, strife and division, gluttony, greed, anger, idolatry, adultery, gossip, racism, abortion, human trafficking, disrespect for lawful authority, etc. and we pray for complete destruction of these strongholds that have been such a plague on our families, our communities and our nation.
Satan has wreaked havoc on our families and communities causing much division and strife. In our human disagreements, many claim that You, God, are on one side or another, but that is not how it works. It is we who must choose to come into full alignment with You for You to battle for us. (Joshua 5:13-15) We know that ultimately, You WIN!!! (Revelation 22) And we ask for Your help against the adversary who seeks our destruction who uses poor deceived and lost souls to do his bidding. We ask for their deliverance from the grip of the evil one as well.
We thank You that Your divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness, through the knowledge of Yeshua/Jesus Who called us by His own glory and virtue. Through these things You have given us Your precious and magnificent promises, so that through them we may become partakers of the divine nature, since we have escaped the corruption that evil desires have brought into the world. (2 Peter 1:3-4)
We seek to please You as we pray for our President as well as other government leaders and officials, our court systems and law enforcement that they would be filled with righteousness, that their motives for every decision to be in accordance with Your divine will, because righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne. (Psalm 89:14) We know this brings about the ability for us to lead peaceful and quiet lives, godly and dignified in every way. (1 Timothy 2:2-3) Your counsel stands forever and our national heritage is blessed because You Are our God. (Psalm 33:11-12)
We pray for a wall of protective fire to surround America against all enemies, foreign as well as domestic, who have ungodly agendas. We pray for the health and prosperity of all Americans. (Zechariah 2:5) We ask for Your glory to fill this nation and that You would restore our lamp stand (Revelation 2-3) for the great end times harvest of souls from America to the ends of the earth and for laborers from all nations to be thrust into the harvest fields. (John 4:35-38, Luke 10:2, Acts 1:8)
And we also know that You bless the nations who bless the people and land of Israel because it is from them that You brought forth Your perfect Lamb of God, Yeshua Ha Mashiach/Jesus Christ. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem--- and the land of Israel, "May those who love you be at peace! May there be Shalom within your walls---quietness within your palaces. " (Psalm 122:6-7)
