  4. Dearest Father, I lift to you the city of Jacksonville and all of NE Florida including Duval, Nassau, Baker, St John’s, Columbia, Clay, and Bradford Counties. Release the wind of your Spirit to bring freedom and deliverance from the bondage of sin throughout this region. Lift up your heads o ye gates of NE Florida. Open wide for the King of glory, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to come in. Drive out the darkness by sending forth your light and your truth that they may lead us to you Lord Christ. Set the Church free from all our foolish sinfulness and idolatry so that Your Name may be glorified. We love you Jesus. Keep us in eternal life by the power of your Holy Spirit. Amen!!

  5. Father, You said that if we ask anything in the name of Your beloved son Jesus Christ that You will grant us anything we ask. Therefor Father, i ask You this day in the name of Jesus save our country from any economical crisis, from any danger of famine that endangers the world. Be our God provider. In Jesus name i ask. Amen

  6. Holy FATHER,
    Today i’ve decided to bow deepily before YOUR holy throne to give YOU the place YOU deserve: The first place!!!
    The first of YOUR commandements says that YOU’re a jealous GOD and that we shall have nor serve nor bow before other gods. In our personal life GOD and in our country we still have, serve and bow before a lot of other gods. Please forgive us and help us to give YOU that place YOU derserve in our lives.
    If we heed all of YOUR commandements YOU said, You will open the doors of treasure, the heavens, to give the rain in its seasons. Father we’re willingly to do YOUR will to have all of YOUR blessings in our life, but like YOU know the flesh is weak. Therefore Father i ask YOU today to give us YOUR strength, YOUR intelligence to stand against evil, to stand against the temptations in life. In YOUR mighty name LORD and in the name of YOUR beloved son Jesus Christ i take the authority YOU gave to us through the cross to stand against and bind and cast out every other unworthless god in our life, in our family, in our city, in our community and in our country by the name of Jesus. I call upon the blood of Jesus to speak in our home, in our family,in our city,in our community and in our country. Please purch and sanatize our homes and our countries.
    And i ask FATHER to release YOUR holy spirit of ressurection upon us all. May YOUR spirit of ressurection breath life into the prayer life of us all, breath life into the prayer life of the churches in all countries and in all nations. May YOUR spirit of ressurection breath love for YOU in our hearths by the name of Jesus.
    And LORD please release YOUR blessings upon us and dispatch YOUR angels to bring those blessings to us without any hindrance.
    I thank YOU FATHER for giving answer to our prayers. I bless YOU, ABBA FATHER, for YOU are worthy to be blessed. No other god is worthy of our blessings.
    In Jesus’ name i prayed. Amen

  7. ABBA, PLEASE HEAL AND DELIVER AUSTIN,TX OF ALL HINDERING AND BINDING SPIRITS THAT ARE PREVENTING THE FOLKS FROM HEARING AND BELIEVING YOUR WORD FOR THEIR LIVES AND THEIR NATION. PROTECT THEM FROM ERROR AND FALSE
    BELIEF AND HEAL AND DELIVER THEM SPEEDILY IN THE NAME OF JESUS. THANK YOU LORD! Hallelu Yah!

  8. Father, You alone know the level of wickedness and deprivation in Santa Barbara. California is reeling from wicked choices which have deeply affected everyone in the state and throughout our nation. Please send forth your mercy and by your kindness lead us to repentance in Santa Barbara and in all of California. Let us become leaders in righteousness rather than wickedness. Let us be known throughout the world as those who love the Lord Almighty. Come and make yourself known to the students who love to party. Raise up the revived generation to lead their contemporaries into your blessed kingdom. Have your way here dear Father and be glorified in Santa Barbara and throughout California. In the mighty, loving and powerful name of Jesus before whom the whole earth will bow.

  13. Dear Jesus,
    I am lifting up the cities of the United States of America to you this day. Lord, I pray for all city governments, laws of the land, the judicial system to be lead by the Hand of God. Lord I declare and decree the USA is one nation under God, we were founded by men & women seeking a land where they could worship YOU. Father, with all our faults, we still remain dependent upon YOU. We can’t make it in freedom as we have known it in the past, without Your help.
    Lord bless industry, hospitals, the police departments, firefighters, food store chains, parks departments, townships, mayors, the Red Cross, schools and all of the needs to operate a city.

God in your sons precious name, Jesus I ask for peace for Israel & help & protection. Amen

  16. Father, thank you that we have a great heritage here on the Gulf Coast but the religious spirits have overtaken us. Open the eyes of your people to see that we can be sons and daughters in Your Kingdom and wherever we stand declaring your Word that the demonstration of your plan, purpose, and power can happen. Shine your light of truth and wake up your people so that our lights will shine like a city on a hill and then we can share your love with all those around us who are perishing for lack of knowledge. We need a fresh anointing of your love so that it will overflow us in the highways and byways. It is our heart to see many come into the Kingdom and be set free, in Jesus’ name. amen

  22. Lord God we implore that you moved powerfully in Jersey City and that the sleeping and slumbered condition of God’s people will be able to sense the urgency of these season that you are looking for someone to stand in the gap between God and men so as this city be covered and partake of the coming Mighty Empowerment Visitation of the Holy Spirit as the many Apostolic, Prophetic and Intercessors are calling for a Big Wave of BulletProof Train Holy Spirit Fire to visit us globally. May I be a part of your servants that will heed to your calling. I stand and repent and ask for forgiveness in behalf of the many filipino leaders and churches who more focus on so many ministry activities and programs but are so ineffective and so lukewarm after hearing the Sunday preaching of the Word of God for 2 hours because of too many media, arts and entertainment being accepted in 6 complete days after work hours or vice versa rather than making priority to reach the lost souls and calling for fasting and intercession and praying on times to be spent in parties and feasting. I call you Oh God Almighty in the Name above all name where all knees shall vow and all tongues will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Let the Mighty outpouring of the Presence of the Holy Spirit be felt i all christian churches, in public place, in work place here in Jersey City and make this city “JESUS CITY” for your glory, praise and honor. Amen and Amen. Hallelujah!!!

Thank you Father for the precious blood of the Lamb which makes it possible to call you Father. Fill your servants with great boldness to radically love and preach the Good News in the highways and byways to every one who has an ear to hear. We command every evil spirit that has unbelievers bound to depart and for a window of freedom so they may see the Lord high and lifted up. May our cities be a place of refuge for God’s people and a place where others may find eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
