HOW WE'LL PRAY: 

  • UNITY: We all know that power in prayer comes when we are not individual groups but one in Christ.

  • PRAY WITH ALL OUR HEART AND SOUL: Let’s be fully committed. “Gathered themselves together, to ask (prayed, beseeched) help of the LORD: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the LORD. 2 Chron 20:4

  • REJOICE: “This is what the LORD says to you: 'Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army For the battle is not yours, but God's”. 2 Chron 20:15 

PRAYER POINTS

  1. FIRST REPENT OF ANY SIN AND ASK THE LORD TO CLEANSE YOU BEFORE YOU PRAY.

  2. WORSHIP THE LORD. He is enthroned in our worship and praises.  That is what Elijah did when he repaired the altar of God!

  3. Ask the Lord to protect each candidate, location, moderator and attendee and that His Holy Spirit and angelic host will intervene wherever necessary so that His plans and purposes can be carried out in this nation.

  4. Pray that the Lord exposes every plan of the enemy.

  5. Take His authority that He has given to His followers to command and decree that the enemy will not have any power over the debates or the elections.

  6. Pray that during the debates, God will bring clearness and wisdom to the person of His choice. Pray that person will have discernment and wisdom from God in what they say and do.

  7. Pray by name for the moderates running the debates. May they be fair and unbiased.

  8. Thank the Lord that the history of the United States of America is in the prayers of the intercessors and that we will be heard on high!
