5 STEPS TO HEAL AMERICA


  1. Pray for change, in our own lives as well as in America.
  2. Repent and receive God’s viewpoint in all matters.
  3. Read Bible and understand how God intended us to live and to treat each other, to govern and to preserve freedoms.
  4. Turn from wickedness of all kinds. Turn from compromise, rationalization, and bad habits that keep us from thriving.
  5. Sacrifice time, energy and money to assist in making godly, righteous, compassionate changes in our communities together.


We receive suggested prayer points from  MICHOP Day Captains and other prayer team members who are praying in scheduled time periods, and we are also willing to consider prayer points submitted via email.  We welcome submissions from each of the 7 arenas of society:  our legislators and government workers and officials, educators, marketplace and business people, those in or connected to the military, those active in arts and media, requests concerning the Church, and concerns for our precious families


Check prayer focus below, or sign up on the contact page to receive a weekly email which contains this prayer focus! 


If you visit MICHOP, there are materials available to assist your prayers for the 7 "mountains," the nation of Israel, and our state elected officials.

Verses this week -

Malachi 3:6 - For I am the Lord, I change not, therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.

Proverbs 2:1-9 - My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you, so that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding, if you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom, from His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly; He guards the path of justice, and preserves the way of His saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice, equity and every good path.

Psalm 103:1-5 - Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: 
Who forgives all your iniquities, 
Who heals all your diseases, 
Who redeems your life from destruction, 
Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, 
Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

Isaiah 53:4-5 - Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions. He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him. And by His stripes we are healed. 

Hebrews 13:8 - Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today and forever.

Acts 1:8 - But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

Psalms 146-150: meditation Psalms for this week.

I Tim 2:1-2 – "Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence."

Prayer points for this week -

1. FEDERAL GOVERNMENT - AMERICA

- Stop the violence! In prayer we stop the forming of groups that incite trouble and dissension. We pray God's light to shine in the darkness, for His people to come forward in leadership, with unity and truth and set the example for the whole nation. We crush in the spirit realm the enemy's hold on the media and on communication of all kinds. We exalt God's ways to bring forth new media sources and godly men and women to be the voices of reality/truth. We speak God's peace, faithfulness, kindness and penetrating voice into the atmosphere in our whole country. NO MORE PROTESTS OR COUNTER PROTESTS THAT FOSTER VIOLENCE AND THE DESTRUCTION OF HUMAN LIFE. We retain the right to assembly, within the confines of what is edifying and for the production of thoughtfulness and peace in our land. God, have mercy on us and teach us a better way. We pray for revival in America! Praise the Lord!

Solar Eclipse August 21, across the continental USA - let's pray that God is glorified through this event and that His people are awakened to all that He has called us to in America. Let the fullness of the HARVEST come forth in America, and for all of us to assist in laboring for it in the whole earth. Lengthy but fascinating teaching on possible interpretation of this event/sign in the sky: https://youtu.be/-ZvIibUAY2o (Pastor Steve Cioccolanti). Pray as you are lead for this momentous event.

AWAKEN THE DAWN national event Oct 6-9, in Washington, DC. This 50-state effort (50 tents for 50 states) is for prayer and worship, and repentance on behalf of the sins of our nation. Michigan will have her own tent. Secure a hotel near the Washington Mall or on a subway stop easily accessible to the Mall. Flights can be direct from Lansing, or you can join others from MI and take a bus together (Dan Goucher 517-282-1106). Oct 9 is a culmination rally, a million Christians devoted to prayer, turning the nation back to the Lord, emphasizing the ending of abortion in America. (A True "Women's March") www.awakenthedawn.org
Local meetings around the state to prepare for this national event: 

Th, Aug 24, 7pm - Mt Hope Assembly of God - 202 S. Creyts R, Lansing
Fri, Aug 25, 7pm - Grand Traverse House of Prayer - 3211 N. Garfield Rd, Traverse City

2. STATE OF MICHIGAN

- HEALING and the GLORY of the Lord wherever they go, for the following brothers and sisters in our MICHOP community:
Jeff Whitson
Jack Cook
Marie Manierski
Leslie Jakeway
Linda Jakeway
Millie Kallman
Connie Kranich
Wendy Jackson (Pastor Tim Jackson's wife, Pastor Joe Jackson's mother, Community Baptist Church, Lansing)
Myra Noble (Representative Jeff Noble's wife, also Pastor of Praise Baptist Church, Plymouth)


- Marijuana: Stop the abuse and misuse of this drug, especially with our youth and young adults. We hear stories of young children coming to school in the Head Start programs, already stoned from second hand MJ smoke. They have a terrible time functioning as students in school. Others tell us that some high schoolers have medical cards and are coming to school stoned from MJ use. This has to stop! We halt this insanity and misuse of legal "medicine" against our children and fellow citizens. We ask God to give them hearts to seek Him instead of this "high". May they come to know the Savior who loves them and has great plans for their lives. We speak their destinies forward for them, instead of the destruction they are currently entertaining. We ask God to reverse any and all laws that have promoted this "medication" to be utilized in a destructive manner. We ask for all the better answers in this regard. Turn our leaders, parents and all citizens/voters to You, God, and receive revelation on this and all other matters. Thank You, Lord! 

-  Peace in our cities - unity and God's Church coming forward in great strength and love. No room for violence and dissension. We come together in Christ, and receive the Psalm 133 blessing. 

- MI House of Representatives to pray for this week:

Workforce and Talent Development Committee Clerk: 

Ian Mays Frederick (Chairman), Kahle (Majority Vice Chairwoman), Crawford, Iden, Leutheuser, Wentworth, Love (Minority Vice Chair), Geiss, Scott.

May these your servants, our paid legislators, honor You in all they do and say and decide regarding work and employment laws. As they start coming back to session and are planning decisions that will be made concerning workforce laws and talent development in MI (jobs), may they acquire Your mindset regarding employment, jobs, and serving in the marketplace in dignity and truth. May our businesses and employment sector in MI be prosperous in a way that respects life, humanity, all workers and truth. May work not be over-burdensome, but be a joy to serve in a way where talents and skills are used and appreciated. May the compensation be appropriate and the taxes not overdone, as to create more burden on the families in MI. We praise God for the opportunity and freedom to work in MI. May we work together toward a healthier, more godly community in every way. Bless these Representatives to know You and serve You in all they do. Protect them from all enemies and strengthen their marriages, children and relationships of all kinds.

Blessing of every kind to my fellow intercessors all across Michigan and beyond.  We praise the Lord and advance His Kingdom together!
