Clearly we are to pray in the Lord’s prayer model, in matt 6: for the Father’s will to be done on the earth, so that the Kingdom will be established. When the Kingdom is established in an area men are connected to the King and the Holy Spirit “will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment” John 16:8).So how should we pray? We know from Rom 1:25 that the spirit fueling homosexuality, is worshipping the creation instead of the creator. The same creation-worship is happening in pornography and the sex-driven movies and television, causing an a sex-driven society that aborts its children. When a right view of the Creator is given this enables a fight to correct wrong worship. We know that 2 Corinthians 4:4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers and that “no man can come to Jesus, except the Father draw him” (John 6:44).Eph 6:12
says For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Now if the church was supposed to struggle against flesh and blood, then what we have been doing would make sense, but rather we are to war against powers and rulers who seek to keep man locked in evil and darkness. “The god of this age who has blinded the minds of unbelievers” (2 Cor 4:4). Those that are blinded the church must enlighten.
Therefore I submit that Paul gives us the answer in Eph 1:17. The way that the Spirit led Paul to pray for Ephesus is the Spirit’s answer to pray for our nation.Eph 1:17 (I pray continually) that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened.
If the church begins to earnestly and regularly pray for the eyes of the men and women of America to be enlightened, that Christ would be revealed to them by the Spirit, God will answer them. The Spirit will reveal Christ to them and wisdom will convict them of sin. The church will also need wisdom to disciple the harvest the Lord will release to it.Many will read this and not have faith that God will move on America, but consider:
He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us! (Eph 3:20).
If you abide in Me and My words abide in you you will ask what you desire and it will be done for you. (John 15:7).
