Secret Slave Prayer Meeting
“One of my family’s ancestors who was present in these prayer meetings (See May 2, 2018) passed down the story of the secret prayer around the kettle. These slaves didn’t believe they would ever see freedom in their own lifetimes, so they prayed for the freedom of their children and their children’s children. They risked their lives to pray for the freedom of future generations.” (Will Ford in The Dream King)1
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Pray for the sins of this generation to end, for the sake of your children’s and children’s children’s generation.
- Intercede for another Great Awakening, and the ending of racism, abortion, addictions, mysogyny, sexual perversion, gender confusion, human trafficking, and any other thing the Lord brings to your mind that needs His intervention to set captives free in this nation.
- Taking a stand in God’s love for these freedoms can put you right in the crosshairs of those who don’t know God or His love for them. Pray for them anyway. Show them His love anyway.
- Run for government offices, school boards and other municipal boards. Or support those in office. Get to know those in these offices and make suggestions for statutes and legislation for the sake of our generations to come.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, we will pray for Your freedom in our nation with passion, even if we don’t see things shift in our generation. For the sake of our children and grandchildren, we will pray. Give us another Great Awakening! Heal our nation of racism, abortion, addictions, mysogyny, sexual perversion, gender confusion, human trafficking and any other thing that needs Your intervention to set captives free in this nation. We will choose to love those who do not understand or agree with us. Grace us to love them anyway. Show us if You want us to run for governmental office or how we can support those that are representing us in policy-making positions from the local to the national level. In Jesus’ name, amen.
I decree our intercession will provide for our children to live in a truly free America!
