“New York City in the 19th Century probably surpassed all others in political corruption and depraved popular culture; often the two were bound up together. One aspect of that depravity related to the extent and popularity of abortion, especially among the wealthier inhabitants” (Bill Potter, “Leslie Printice Leads Anti-Abortion Rally, 1846, landmarkevents.org).
Change Your Day, Change Your Life,
Change Your City, Change Your Nation
Leslie Printice, recently widowed, was stirred to action when the Holy Spirit moved on the passionate truth-based words of her pastor. In that unlikely time, as an unlikely activist, Leslie singularly stood against the kingpin woman who spearheaded the abortion industry in New York City. In addition to opposing abortion, Leslie “established prayer networks, sidewalk counseling shifts, and alternative care programs with Christian doctors” (landmarkevents.org).
Though she did not live to see the complete fruit of her work, her work laid the foundation for a future governor, Theodore Roosevelt, to set tougher legislation and enforcement in the abortion arena.
Day of Mourning
You’ll remember the hideous display in NYC which the current governor sanctioned to “celebrate” late-term abortions.
Excellent activist Elizabeth Johnston has called for and organized a solemn assembly on February 23, 2019, in response to the depravity in New York, whose roots go way back in the soil of America.
For years, men and women of integrity and intercession, such as Lou Engle with The Call and Nita Johnson with World for Jesus (and many others) have been leading corporate repentance, prayer and fasting for our nation (nations) and abortion. There is much seed in the ground.
NOW Strategy in Vision
It’s time now for the corporate body of Christ to engage.
In 2016, Victoria Boyson penned a vision she’d received of the spirit of abortion and the triumph of intercession over it. In that vision is a strategy. Click here to read.
I’m inviting you to join corporately and to spend some time this week repenting, based on the strategy Father laid out to Victoria in that vision. And to join, in spirit at least, the Day of Mourning organized by Elizabeth Johnston in our times. She has asked the nation (and this is a body of Christ issue) to: 1. Wear black 2. Don’t shop. 3. Close business. 4. Repent for abortion.
Grace of Unity for LIFE from Father
Here is good news.
There is grace from our Father for unity for life in this time portal.
We’re in the month of Adar, a time for overturning curses! At the Superbowl 2019, Father gave a sign. Regardless of our personal football preferences, the Father uses physical things to give spiritual signs or markers.
The Patriots won 13 over the Rams 3.
A patriot is “one who loves his country and supports its authority and interests” (Webster’s Dictionary). One who loves his/her country loves its sons and daughters, knowing that the best interest of the country is to have healthy generations to come.
The rams are part of sacrifice in the Old Testament and point to the finished work of Christ on the cross, as both the symbolic ram caught in the thicket to affirm Abraham’s faith, and the literal lamb slain from the foundation of the world whose blood bought men and women from every tribe and tongue as the redeemed.
What Father spoke to my spirit was this: “The patriots, brought to unity because of the blood of the Lamb, are “brothers” (though both genders are completely included in this) in the land spoken of in Psalm 133. Their coming together in agreement and harmony release a great grace. They have been given a GRACE of unity for LIFE in this NOW time from Father according to Psalm 133.”
“How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down upon the collar of his robes. It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the LORD bestows his blessing, even life forevermore” (NIV, Psalm 133).
In light of His precious grace extension to us, I’m inviting you to enter into His grace of unity for LIFE in this NOW time.
Prayer Strategy to Repent, Remove, Restore!
Sample below. Read it first. As you move into prayer, pause and add what the Holy Spirit reminds you of.
This needs to be prayed first personally, then it can be applied to your family, the body of Christ, and after that, your nation for maximum impact (see Family Application below).
Father, blind the eyes of the enemy, deafen their ears, hide me in the secret place. Please cover me with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You that I can come to Your throne 24/7. I give You praise and thanks and honor and glory for sending Your Son to overcome and to give me His triumph.
I confess, repent for, reject and renounce every personal and generational agreement with death and desolation.
– Every idolatry
– Every bloodshed
– Every broken covenant
– Every immorality
– Every political mindset and expression, including distraction and dissension
– Every death type, including abortion
– Every law based mentality, including sin and death
– Every stubbornness, disobedience, rebellion, control and manipulation, witchcraft and divination
– Every desolation of generations
I confess this personally and generationally, all that I know, and what I don’t.
Every thought pattern and belief system
Every agreement with darkness
Every judgment I made
Every vow I made
I receive Your forgiveness and extend it to my family to the core to Adam, to myself, to my present family, and to everyone else I’ve injured.
I command all this sin on every level uprooted out of me and sent to the Cross.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I take His authority over every spirit of the law, of sin and death, of fear and punishment, of every judgment, pride, shame, blame, accusation, condemnation, political spirit, all idolatry, bloodshed, broken covenants, and immorality, every spirit of abortion, every stubborn, disobedient, rebellious, controlling and manipulative, witchcraft and divination spirit, and every other dark spirit, defilement, darkness, deception, and their operatives and minions, named and unnamed to the core to Adam. You are bound, uprooted, and sent to the Cross with violence if necessary by the angels.
I am washed clean with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, and His blood is sprinkled on my conscience to the core to Adam.
Holy Spirit, go deep, and remove the roots, fruits, and side-effects. Fortify me with Your power and make me excellent like the Lord Jesus Christ as You change me by Your power into His image. Lord Jesus Christ, rise up within me with healing in Your wings and beams, and light therapy my wounds and memories until I am completely healed. I give You freedom. Father, I relinquish my mind and heart for You to heal. Please deliver, heal, redeem, restore, reintegrate, and rebuild me to the core to Adam. I give You freedom to do Your deep work–as far and wide and deep and high as this goes. Please seal all this in me by the power of the Holy Spirit, and rearguard and seal me and this work, in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ. I release it all to You, amen.
Don’t forget to apply this to your family! Remove the spiritual virus.
Father, please receive, apply, and activate these prayers on behalf of . . . (your close family: father, mother, husband, wife, sons, daughters). I confess their sins in these matters. Please wash it out of them, out of existence, and off their records. I decree in accordance with the Lord Jesus Christ that their sins are forgiven and their debts are released. Please activate all this in them and on their behalf. Seal it within by the power of the Holy Spirit and rearguard and seal them, and all the progress made to this point, with Your glory in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.
In the supremacy of the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ, I decree that the spirit of abortion shall stand alone. I decree that the spirit of desolation shall not morph into any other form. I decree that life and blessing cover our land, our children, and our generations in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ by His blood, and according to the will of the Father, by the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.
End Well by Removing Burdens and Realigning
Father, I lay all this down. Please take it off me, bring my spirit, soul and body (and family) into alignment with You, and replenish me (us).
