PRAYER ALERT FOR THIS NATION
from Dutch Sheets
During our Wednesday night service on October 4, 2000, the HolySpirit moved upon me with the greatest prayer burden I have ever experienced. It would be impossible for me to exaggerate the depth of the prayer burden I was given. This time of intense, overwhelming travail for our nation lasted for three and a half hours. During that time, I wept off and on harder than I even knew was possible.
The Lord began to speak to my heart about the upcoming presidential election, which is the most critical in decades. There must be a turning in this nation toward righteousness, and this will only happen if God's man is elected into office. It is not so much that this man is now ready spiritually to take the nation where God wants, but rather that he has a heart upon which God can effectively move. I believe that if the election was held now, God's purposes would not be established. (I am not basing this on polls or debates, but solely on what the Lord revealed to me that night.) In fact, the results would be such that His purposes for this nation would be set back for many, many years, possibly decades.
During this intense time on Wednesday night, God led me to Daniel 10 where the account is given of great warfare in the heavenlies between the forces of darkness and light. He showed me that the outcome of the current battle regarding this election will be determined by the prayer of the Church. If there is enough prayer and fasting, God's person will be elected, righteousness will prevail and God's plan will be established. If there is not enough prayer, God's person will lose the election and the turning of this nation will be drastically delayed.
I realize that what I am about to say could sound presumptuous, but I believe God witnessed to my heart that one of the greatest prayer efforts in the history of our nation must be mobilized immediately. The amount of prayer that would normally be done for the election is absolutely not enough. I have never before attempted something such as this, but after seeking confirmation from trusted national leaders in the Body of Christ, I believe the Holy Spirit earnestly desires that I issue an alert regarding the seriousness of this hour. I am asking for those who feel this warning is from the Lord to intensify their prayer efforts by doing several things:
*Incorporate significant amounts of prayer into church services. Perhaps turn some entire services (Wednesday nights, Sunday nights, even Sunday mornings) into times of intercession for this purpose. If not entire services, at least give major blocks of time to prayer.
*Additional prayer meetings, both day and evening, be orchestrated for this purpose.
*A national fast be held during the last 21 days before election day. (This would begin October 17th and continue through November 6th.) Prayer meetings on each of these 21 nights are needed. Daniel 2:21 states: 'He changes the times and the seasons, He removes kings and sets up kings, He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.' This can and must happen. It will be realized, however, only if we heed this imperative call to intensified, fervent prayer. If you agree with the urgency of this message, please pass it on to your contacts and ask them to do the same. Let us unite in this cause and see God turn our nation back to Him.
