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

VERSES THIS WEEK -

Psalm 85:10-13 - Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other. Faithfulness springs up from the ground, and righteousness looks down from the sky. Yes, the Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. Righteousness will go before him and make his footsteps a way. WE DECLARE AND RECEIVE THIS BLESSING FOR MICHIGAN.

Deuteronomy 30:16 - If you obey the commandments of the Lord your God that I command you today, by loving the Lord your God, by walking in His ways, and by keeping His commandments and His statutes and His rules, then you shall live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land that you are entering to take possession of it. WE ASK FOR THIS DIRECTION IN ALL MATTERS IN MICHIGAN GOVERNMENT AND IN OUR CULTURE OVERALL.

Ephesians 3:16-19 - ...He may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith -- that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. WE PRAY THIS FOR ALL GOD'S PEOPLE IN MICHIGAN, FOR OUR FELLOW INTERCESSORS AND MI GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS ALIKE.

PSALMS 11-15 - Meditation Psalms for the 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 - UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

AWAKEN THE DAWN (themoraloutcry.com and awakenthedawn.orgnational event Oct 6th - 9th, in Washington, DC. What a great event this was for 3 days of repenting, praying and praising God! All 50 states were represented! We will certainly see the evidence in the days ahead in our state and nation. MICHIGAN was well-represented, and thanks to all who attended and for all who stayed home and prayed for us while we were there. Weather was sometimes tough and sometimes great, but we persevered and broke through to deep and thorough repentance of all areas related to abortion, and we received God's forgiveness and grace for our nation. 
Now, let's see the end of abortion in our country, while we press in to help meet the needs of the folks around us, caring for those who have need of unconditional love, good counsel, and freedom from lies and addictions. 
Let's see women choosing to live in purity, men keeping their promises and desiring to care for the women and children they bring into the world, for families to remain in tact, for males and females to love and respect each other the way God intended, and for unborn babies to see LIFE. 
We may see more babies coming up for adoption, and we will need more godly parents to adopt them. 
We will need more mentoring from the older women to the younger, and for the older men to the younger. 
Let the sweet people of God come through for His glorious changes to be evidenced in our state and nation!
Let's continue to pray this through as we look for God's ways to involve ourselves in our local communities and to help families and individuals we meet along the way.
Let's set the example to value people over possessions and material wealth. 
Let's return to trusting God for all the ways we can care for each other, families, babies, and people in general.
We thank God for His great mercy and grace, to bring revival to our land again and to turn us back to Him. 

Hollywood/Entertainment - continue the cleanup in Hollywood. We pray for revival in Hollywood and in all of the entertainment industry including the NFL. May God use every situation to give Himself glory, for Americans to come to a true understanding of our history, our country's ideologies and the real symbolism of our flag. May the real history and origin of this great country be taught and understood again. God have mercy on those who mislead and confuse the younger generations and any who are vulnerable. God will surely deal with them for this sin, causing His young ones to stumble.

Media to cover the truth only - return to reporting facts and not giving opinions and bias. We ask for new godly media leaders/spokespeople where they are needed.


2. STATE OF MICHIGAN

2 school districts in MI are voting on "transgender bathrooms". Pray for protection for our children and that the parents would be heard in these matters. Pray also that Salt and Light Global would be heard in their representation of these issues and all related topics, on behalf of the parents. If these school boards do not act righteously, then they will be replaced by other Godly school board representatives. These 2 school districts are Williamston and Grass Lake.

- Crosswalk Teen Center - Fall Banquet and Fundraiser - FOR LANSING AREA RESIDENTS - come support this great outreach program to the youth of Charlotte, MI. Th, Oct 26, 6-8pm - dinner, entertainment and an opportunity to hear what Crosswalk does for this community. Please pray for the success of this Teen Center. 
248-987-8336 or crosswalkteencenter.org to RSVP or to find out more about this great ministry you can become a part of.

- Oct 30 - 31 - Let's agree for the demonic activities that accompany this "holiday" to be muted and stopped, and for our children to remain safe and unharmed during this "high holiday" for satanists. May God visit even the satanists in their sleep to offer them freedom from all evil and the trap of the enemy. We pray salvation for all who try to use this time to cause harm and death. Let's speak God's plan for life, freedom and love instead. Praise God!

- Senators to pray for this week:
Senate Majority Leader - Arlan Meekhof
Asst Majority Leader - Geoff Hansen
Majority Floor Leader - Mike Kowall
Asst Majority Floor Leader - Jim Stamas
Majority Caucus Chairperson - David B. Robertson 
Asst Majority Caucus Chairperson - Rick Jones
Minority Leader - Jim Ananich

Purification of our MI Senate. These men to hear the voice of God and to listen to Him only. Fear of the Lord to come upon them instead of the fear of man and the enticement of money and bribes and "deals". Let the redeemed of the Lord say so: so we say that they will serve God and walk uprightly and represent us righteously and love God's justice...or... they will be replaced quickly by others who are Godly, anointed leaders ready to live, serve and represent the citizens in Godliness, transparency and truthfulness. The time is now for evil to be exposed and dealt with, and for God's leaders to arise and be favored for the benefit of all those who dwell and raise families and pay taxes in Michigan (sow into Michigan). We pray for these men to lead uprightly before God, so that we can also lead Godly and peaceful lives under their watch!  

- Healing and God's transformation to the following folks in our MICHOP community: Myra Noble, Wendy Jackson, Patty Rhines, Millie Kallman, Jeff Whitson, Connie Kranich, Leslie Jakeway, Linda Jakeway, Cindy Jepsen, Donna Newell, Helen Boettcher, Jerry Roe.

Thanks for praying for all of us in DC last weekend. Thanks for all you do in your "prayer closets" throughout Michigan. Together, we are making a big difference. Please pray also that our pastors and priests would come to recognize MICHOP as a place to come together in unity and for participation in the greater prayer effort in Michigan. Psalm 133 blessing on us as we come together in unity!
