If you ask any Holy Ghost preacher they will tell you that God is pouring out revelation faster than we can preach it. I believe there are key elements we need in these last days to fulfill the last of the prophesies. God is doing a new thing that we would be wise to embrace. It’s only new to us, not Him. All the believers praise God to some degree but do we understand what happens when the Saints sustain praise for Him? Praise is a sacrament given to the church to exercise His supernatural power.
There was a time in the history of Israel when Jehoshaphat was King. A very large army decided to attack Israel for no obvious reason. Nothing has changed in all these years. Armies are still attacking Israel. Jehoshaphat was afraid so he called the whole country together and began to pray. God spoke to them and told them that He would fight their battle for them. All they needed to do is come to the cliff of Ziz and watch.
2 Chronicles 20:21
Then Jehoshaphat appointed singers that they would go before the army and say: Praise the Lord; for His mercy endures forever. 22. And when they began to praise, the opposing armies destroyed one another.
It’s time we take praise out of the box, that we put it in for Sunday morning and expand it to every aspect of our lives. Praise is a sacred event, but it does not have restrictive places of practice. By definition, praise is confessing spiritual truths and there is no prescribed time or place. One day, I was golfing with some dudes I didn’t know. From the very first hole they made it clear that they had “potty” mouths. They began to cuss and take my Lord’s Name in vain. So I began to praise Him openly. If they can take His Name and curse, I can take His Name and praise Him. They stopped cussing immediately.
You are Holy Lord, You inhabit the praises of Your people.
The word “inhabit” means to indwell, settling, keep house, tarry, continue, sit down or judge. When we praise the Lord, He shows up because praise is the welcome mat to Him. He will begin to judge between us and our enemies. That’s what He did for Israel at the cliff of Ziz. Let me make this plain and simple; when you begin to praise the Lord, He shows up. The Lord spoke this to me:“If you will praise Me continually, whether you feel like it or not, you will feel Me.”
God is always with us, but when we praise Him, He will give evidence of His nearness. We are His children. We have a right to His presence, it’s not a privilege , it’s a birthright. We don’t have to “feel” God in order to believe, we “feel” Him because we do believe. The battle is won on the wings of praise. When Israel began to praise the Lord, the annihilation of their enemies began. Praise is more than singing songs to the Lord, it’s our weapon against those who do not honor our Lord.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
