70 Days – Righteousness Exalts a Nation – Day 36
GiveHim15 will be collaborating with Love Ministries in a very special 70-day prayer focus. We are going to take a stand for righteousness in the United States of America from February 9th through Passover, April 19th.
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34; NASB)
REBUILDING THE WALL OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IN OUR NATION, STATES, AND TERRITORIES – 52 Day State Prayer Focus: Day 18: Ohio, March 1, 1803
The Lord has mobilized His army so that the prayer bowls of revival, awakening and reformation can be poured out in America. There is a demonstration of righteousness that is being released in our nation through the alignments, assignments and decrees of the remnant of God. We are gaining ground daily. The “appeal to heaven” has been heard. The “turnaround” has come. The “forward” march has movement and giants are falling! The plow is plowing and reconnecting the roots of awakening in our nation! Praise God! We have movement and momentum! It is a culmination and convergence of time. There are verdicts being released daily to align our nation in righteousness and truth. “With God, all things are possible.” Our God is unstoppable. Let’s finish this!
“Before I was born the Lord called me; from my birth He has made mention of my name. He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of His hand He hid me; He made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in His quiver.” (Isaiah 49:1-2; NIV)
“I, the LORD, have called you to demonstrate my righteousness. I will take you by the hand and guard you, and I will give you to my people, Israel, as a symbol of my covenant with them. And you will be a light to guide the nations. You will open the eyes of the blind. You will free the captives from prison, releasing those who sit in dark dungeons.”
“For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12; NIV)

A prayer you can pray:
Father, from the womb, from birth, You have called and appointed us to this nation. You have made our mouth like a sharpened sword. We agree with Your decree, “I, the LORD, have called you to demonstrate my righteousness. I will take you by the hand and guard you, and I will give you to my people, Israel, as a symbol of my covenant with them. And you will be a light to guide the nations. You will open the eyes of the blind. You will free the captives from prison, releasing those who sit in dark dungeons.” Let our nation and the State of Ohio come into the fullness of our birthright and destiny as ordained by God. Lord, we agree with Your Kingdom plan and purpose for our land and the state of Ohio.
Healing and revival roots run deep in you, Ohio. Many great men and women have trailblazed through you, releasing revival fire and glory through the message of the Gospel of the Kingdom. Ohio, you are a city on a hill. Once again, you will burn with revival fire. The State of Ohio will become a tent of meeting and town square meeting place for spiritual and governmental awakening and righteous reform. Lord, raise up Your righteous rulers in this state and restore the judges of old. Ohio, your seat and your voice of authority have been secured. Legislation will come out of you that will set a precedent for the nation. The appeal has been heard. The word coming out of Ohio is sharper than a two-edged sword, able to divide the soul and spirit and judge the thoughts and attitudes of the nation. Your voice is going to vote righteousness for the glory of the Kingdom.
“God says, “I am bringing the Spirit of Revelation and I am going to cut through that demonic structure. I’m going to cut it off in the north, east, west, and south. You are then going to connect properly and you are going to begin to speak My Words into the heavens. The revelatory sword of the Lord is going to do surgery on the state of Ohio. It will cut off the powers of the enemy, slay those things that have been warring against you, and unseat Satan.” (Dutch Sheets, 50 State Tour)
“Ohio, you are a swing state to lift the nation back into place. God is going to catch the state up quickly. There will be war in the heavenly realms. Ohio is a signpost. Suddenly, things will change. Ohio will come from the back of the pack to the front. It is time for Ohio to pick up the sword to overcome and break the religious spiritual stronghold over us. The prophetic breaker anointing will be a battering ram to shift the state. Apostolic order will come into place. Our nation depends upon the movement of God in our state.” (Chuck Pierce, Dutch Sheets, Barbara Wentroble, 50 State Tour) Father, we thank you that you have ordained greatness for the Buckeye State. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
The 70 Day Decree:
Lord God, we present ourselves unto You a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1). We acknowledge and declare that we are filled with the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:11). Your Word tells us that righteousness exalts a nation (Proverbs 14:34). We stand before You in the land You have given us, and we decree and release the righteousness of Christ into our territories, spheres of influence, our cities, states, and nation in order to bring healing, revival, awakening, and reformation to America. Father, let Your Spirit of righteousness be released and established in us, and in every place in which You have given us jurisdiction. Let Your righteous Kingdom come and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10)! Prepare the soil of this nation and realign us with Your righteousness! In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
