General Orders, May 15, 1776–

The Continental Congress having ordered Friday the 17th. Instant to be observed as a day of “fasting, of humiliation, of prayer, humbly to supplicate the mercy of Almighty God, that it would please him to pardon all our manifold sins and transgressions, and to prosper the arms of the United Colonies, and finally, establish the peace and freedom of America, upon a solid and lasting foundation”–The General commands all officers, and soldiers, to pay strict obedience to the Orders of the Continental Congress, and by their unfeigned, and pious observance of their religious duties, incline the Lord, and Giver of Victory, to prosper our arms.

Jehovah Sabaoth,
You are indeed the Giver of Victory. Prosper the arms of Your angelic hosts to establish the peace and freedom of America, upon a solid and lasting foundation. Amen.


Philadelphia, PA–Naked before God

November 7, 2016

Job 26:6 (AMP)
Sheol (the place of the dead) is naked before God, and Abaddon (the place of destruction) has no covering [from His eyes].

Proverbs 15:11 (AMP)
Sheol (the place of the dead) and Abaddon (the abyss, the final place of the accuser Satan) are both before the Lord—how much more, then, the hearts of the children of men?

Dear Jesus,
You descended into the lower parts of the earth and ascended far above the heavens, that You might fill all things. You are the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in You, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in You shall never die.
The hearts of the voters in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania are before You. In You is life, and Your life is the light of mankind that cannot be overcome by darkness. Fill Philadelphia with Your life, we pray. We declare Your holy name over Philadelphia! Amen.
John 1:4-5, 11:25a, Ephesians 4:9-10


Philadelphia, PA–Covenant

November 7, 2016

Psalm 105:1-8 (NLT)
Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness.
Let the whole world know what he has done.
Sing to him; yes, sing his praises.
Tell everyone about his wonderful deeds.
Exult in his holy name;
rejoice, you who worship the Lord.
Search for the Lord and for his strength;
continually seek him.
Remember the wonders he has performed,
his miracles, and the rulings he has given,
you children of his servant Abraham,
you descendants of Jacob, his chosen ones.
He is the Lord our God.
His justice is seen throughout the land.
He always stands by his covenant—
the commitment he made to a thousand generations.

We remember the wonders You performed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, O Lord. We remember the guidance You gave our founding fathers in this city. What justice You wrought!
We have sinned and broken covenant in so many ways. We cry out, Mercy! Mercy! Mercy! Mercy! Mercy! Mercy!
Let there be Your perfect justice and Your perfect mercy in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in this election. Amen.


Philadelphia, PA–Constitutional Convention

November 7, 2016

The Articles of Confederation proved inadequate for commercial and trading issues. A constitutional convention met in Philadelphia in May 1787. In September 1787, the charter was signed for a completely new American government to begin operating as soon as the people of nine of the states approved it in special ratifying conventions. To indicate that the new federal government would be a republic of Americans, rather than a confederation of states, Pennsylvania delegate Gouveneur Morris rewrote the Preamble:

We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Morris once said, “Religion is the only solid Base of morals and Morals are the only possible support of free governments.”

Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. Proverbs 9:10 NLT

Our Heavenly Father,
We thank You for the men and women who have invested so much and who have sacrificed their lives to protect the freedom of the citizens of the United States of America. We thank You for the faith of our founding fathers and the generations that have followed.
We humbly beseech You to loose a spirit of the fear of the Lord over the Christians and Jews in this election season, particularly in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Only in You can we achieve a more perfect union. Only in You can we establish justice. Only in You can we insure domestic tranquility. Only in You can we provide for the common defense. Only in You can we promote the general welfare. Only in You can we secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. Amen. Amen. Amen.


Philadelphia, PA–Invocation

November 7, 2016

Psalm 104:30-33 (NCV)
When you breathe on them,
they are created,
and you make the land new again.
May the glory of the Lord be forever.
May the Lord enjoy what he has made.
He just looks at the earth, and it shakes.
He touches the mountains, and they smoke.
I will sing to the Lord all my life;
I will sing praises to my God as long as I live.

We sing praises to You, O Lord,
For You are the fountain of life. In You we live and move and have our being.
Breathe on Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! Send forth Your Spirit and renew this city.
Breathe, O Lamb of God, who has taken away the sins of the world! Breathe!
Breathe on her citizens in this election season. Stir their hearts to seek You, the Giver of life. Amen.


Election

Jeremiah 17:5-8 (NLT)
This is what the Lord says:
“Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans,
who rely on human strength
and turn their hearts away from the Lord.
They are like stunted shrubs in the desert,
with no hope for the future.
They will live in the barren wilderness,
in an uninhabited salty land.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked. O Lord, have mercy on our nation.

“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord
and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.
They are like trees planted along a riverbank,
with roots that reach deep into the water.
Such trees are not bothered by the heat
or worried by long months of drought.
Their leaves stay green,
and they never stop producing fruit.

Our Father in heaven,
Are there not yet many in the United States who have made their hope and confidence in You? Let their votes be like bright streams between the hills that grow into a great river, a river of living water. Let their votes bring life.
You are the fountain of living waters. From Your throne and the throne of the Lamb flows the pure river of the water of life, clear as crystal. May the citizens of our nation be rooted in living water. May the citizens of our nation be rooted in You. Amen.


Devourer

November 7, 2016

Jeremiah 51:44a (HCSB)
I will punish Bel in Babylon.
I will make him vomit what he swallowed.

Malachi 3:10-11 (ESV)
Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need. I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil, and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, says the Lord of hosts.

Our Father in heaven,
Our children have been devoured. Fifty-nine million babies have been aborted in the US since Roe v Wade in 1973.
Our wealth has been devoured. Our national debt is $19,000,000,000,000.
Our covenants are being devoured. The marriage rate in the US has hit a record low.
We cry out, Mercy, Lord, mercy!
Release Your wisdom to the Christians in the United States of America. Teach us how to war against the devourer. Teach us how to pray. Release a spirit of thanksgiving with tithes and offerings throughout the church. Rebuke the devourer for us!
We loose the holy angels that war against Baal, especially over Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We call forth the Gideons to pull down the altars of Baal. Amen.
