We pray against the spirit of anti Christ,false witness,terrorism,idolatry, sexual immorality, sorcery,leviathan,jezebel,witchcraft,hatred,wars, pestilences, famine,divination and violence. We ask that your people would humble themselves and repent of their sins and that you would forgive our sins and heal our land. We pray that the spirit of darkness be lifted from America and the scales would be lifted from peoples eyes that they may see the truth and be set free. We pray for a return of your people to the fear of the lord and that the ancient foundations of American be not removed. We pray that Jesus Christ guide the minds of those who govern us to promote the common good according to his will and that the leaders of our nation and the world may have the strength to govern wisely the peoples entrusted to them by the Lord. We pray that you would raise up leaders after Christ own loving heart and bring down those who would seek only their own power and glory. Reveal all corruption and let your justice prevail in the earth. Convict the conscience of any person in position of leadership who fail to serve their people faithfully and cause those who are unfit for office to step down. We pray for revival in our hearts and churches that God would rise up shepherds that are spirit filled, speak the truth in love and manifest the gifts of the holy spirit. Pray the Lord Jesus will grant peace in the land, and we will lie down and no one will make you afraid. Pray that the Lord would remove wild beasts from our land, and the sword will not pass through our country. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and healing for all of those affected by the coronavirus. Lord in your loving kindness and tender mercies hear our prayers and let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We give you glory for moving by your spirit and answering our prayers. In Jesus name Amen.

I had an allergic reaction to a chemo in the past, so I guess I’m not a candidate to receive either the Pfizer or Moderna Covid vaccine (something to do with the preservative used in those two). That news really burst my bubble since I was so looking forward to having a little more freedom...I’m praying I can receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine as soon as possible.
Additionally, I had been having hip pain for about 3 months now (fairly severe lately). As it turns out, although the chemo seems to be doing it’s job, it has done a number on my hip bones. So, as I face hip replacement surgery (right hip) next Monday, February 8, I could really use prayers once again.

Father, I know you can soften his heart and I'm asking that in your mercy you will so we can continue this journey we started together.

Happy holidays & thank you again so much for praying with me, it does help a lot because God is using it. Because my old laptop crashed I asked a school teacher if she can help me to find back some videos and media productions I had made during my former university journalism study, they possibly have all this in their back up computer systems. Furthermore, me and my husband were scammed yesterday evening through the phone, someone pretended to be working for Microsoft, 2 times 150 euro was taken. Now it is being investigated and hopefully and prayerfully we get this money back through our bank fraud research employers or a policy that works on our behalf and enables the bank to fund it back to us. Please pray that we get this money back as soon as possible. Also please keep praying with me for the right work placement for me. To find out what my place is within the body of Christ and where I can use my given talents for Gods glory. Please pray together with me and my husband that God will guide me to the right workplace this time around and continue equipping me for it with wisdom and everything that I need. I am going to apply soon for a job opening as communication worker, before 12-01-2021, the job interviews will be around 20-01-2021, social media, newsletters internal and external communication about blood research.Please continue to pray with me for God to guide me to the right job that is for my needs this day, and that will accommodate me without hesitation, a job that is stable where my talents, skills, abilities and education will be put into practical use. That way, I can have sufficient to pay my bills, and place bread on my table for myself and my family. A job that will enable me to give back what is due to our Lord Jesus. Be a blessing and be blessed, may God bless you in His lordship over your life and always keep you close to Him!!! Praying you have a Happy Christmas and a Blessed New Year
