Weekly Watch Focus: 21 Days of Victory Fast—Pray for Crucial Mid-Term Elections & Protection for President Trump

Friday, September 7, 2018—Let us lay a foundation of prayer during this season of fasting for the upcoming mid-term elections in November. At this time our nation is experiencing the highest employment rate in forty years, tremendous growth in our GDP, and the blessing of standing with Israel and God’s chosen city, Jerusalem. We thank the Lord for our rousing economy. We believe God is giving us the turnaround we have been praying for. But as we have seen this week in the Senate confirmation hearings, there is great opposition to godly leaders who stand for our Judeo-Christian foundations and the freedoms afforded us as a nation in the Constitution. When Nehemiah began the work of restoring the walls of Jerusalem, Sanballat and Tobiah arose to sow discord and lies to undermine the work. We are seeing this in the atmosphere around us in the media and partisan divide. Bind back the voices of Sanballat and Tobiah. Pray that God give us a resounding majority of lawmakers who will bring back financial integrity, a restored economy, and honor for our Judeo-Christian foundations in the Senate and House of Representatives. Bind back satanic forces of corruption and antichrist that would aim to neutralize biblical values and morality in our nation. Pray that the mid-term elections be free of fraud and proceed without a hitch. Lord, give us leaders such that it would be to Your glory to give us the victory through them.

Pray for divine protection and the personal safety of President Trump and his family. We also put a hedge of protection around Vice President Pence, the Cabinet, Congress, the Supreme Court Justices, and for Judge Kavanaugh. Ask the Lord to send His angel armies to thwart every attack. Bind back every weapon formed against them and every tongue that rises against them. Let God arise and His enemies be scattered.

Part 2: Feast of Trumpets, Rosh Hashanah

Pray for fresh outpouring and blessings as we prepare to celebrate the Jewish New Year called Rosh Hashanah with the blast of the trumpet. We also note the beginning of the Feast of Trumpets marking the High Holy Days, “the Days of Awe” leading up to Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. In this season of fasting, set aside time to pray for revival and repentance so that times of refreshing may come from the Presence of the Lord.

1 Timothy 2:1-4, “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

Matthew 18:19-20, “‘Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.’”

Nehemiah 4:7-9, “Now it happened, when Sanballat, Tobiah, the Arabs, the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites heard that the walls of Jerusalem were being restored and the gaps were beginning to be closed, that they became very angry, and all of them conspired together to come and attack Jerusalem and create confusion. Nevertheless we made our prayer to our God, and because of them we set a watch against them day and night.”
