We pause to remember 9/11. What a fateful unforgettable day for this Nation and thousands of families all across America. If any need your comfort. If any need your healing. If any feel alone, neglected or forgotten. Come and be their Paraclete. Comfort those who lost loved ones, family and friends.
We declare your words of life and wisdom over America today. She is not the same or so we are told. We long for the days of baseball, apple pie and the national anthem. We long for the days of patriotism.
O Merciful Lord. Bring us back as one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all. A nation united under God. Pledging allegiance to the flag in our schools and ball games. Bringing the Bible back to the forefront instead of burning it or leaving it to lay dusty on the shelf.
This is what the LORD says: Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, We will not walk in it.
We are looking. We are standing firm on your foundation. We choose to serve the Lord. We will walk in your ways. We will follow your Word. We will listen to your voice. We are citizens of your kingdom first.
We put you first and foremost. We move you from the back to the front. We push back the idols that have surrounded us and pull out the Bible of the one true God. We humbly bow and seek your will and your way.
Blessed is the man whose council is of the Lord! Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.
We declare blessing, healing, freedom and prosperity over the land today! We declare what the enemy meant for evil will turn to good. We declare America to be a sovereign nation under God with truth and liberty ringing throughout the land.
We declare the evil setup over America will turn for the good. In Jesus mighty name. Their evil weapons will not prosper and their vile lies will fall on deaf ears. We tear down these strongholds and set them aflame with the fire of the Holy Ghost.
We declare over President Trump and Vice President Pence. They are the blessed of the Lord. Their paths will be straight and their feet will not stumble. They are the head and not the tail. We declare all that they put their hands to will prosper for themselves, their families and for this great nation.
We declare over the church like Moses did over the people of Israel. Do not be afraid! Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again!
Then the Lord said. Get moving! Pick up your staff and raise your hand over the sea. Divide the waters so the Israelites can walk through on dry ground.
Oh! Hallelujah. Blessed be the name of the Lord who causes us to triumph! We pick our sword and shield like Moses picked up the staff and rod. And we wield it against the enemy. We pierce the darkness in this land!
The enemy can snort and blow smoke, threaten and paw the ground like an enraged animal. We will divide the evil waters that are surrounding us and pierce them with the goodness of the Lord. We pierce these murky waters with the sword of the Lord. And we will be left standing firm on dry ground.
The Lord will fight for us. We will not be moved. We will not be shaken! We will watch the sea part!
In Jesus name. Amen.
