70 Days – Righteousness Exalts a Nation – Day 58
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 40: North Dakota, November 2, 1889
Let the faith of the Son of God rise within you. The mountains and obstacles that have blocked revival, awakening, and reformation in our land are being removed. May the Lord refresh and renew you as His vessel this day to carry His New Wine.
“We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers. We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 1:2-3; NIV)
“‘Have faith in God,'” Jesus answered. ‘I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, “Go, throw yourself into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.’” (Mark 11:22-25; NIV)
In the crushing
In the pressing
You are making new wine
In the soil I now surrender
You are breaking new ground
So, I yield to You and to Your careful hand
When I trust You, I don’t need to understand
Make me Your vessel
Make me an offering
Make me whatever You want me to be
I came here with nothing
But all You have given me
Jesus bring new wine out of me
You are breaking new ground
Where there is new wine
There is new power
There is new freedom
The Kingdom is here
I lay down my old flames
To carry Your new fire today
(Brooke Ligertwood. Listen here.)

A prayer you can pray:
Father, we come into agreement with Your Kingdom plan and redemptive purposes for our nation and the State of North Dakota. We acknowledge you as “The Faith and New Wineskin State”, North Dakota. Lord, we thank you for the righteous decree that is being released in our nation and this state that is removing obstacles, shaking the mountains of society and realigning this nation in your original intent. Righteousness is being restored through the threshing instrument of the Lord!
“The Lord says, ‘It is time for you to rise up in your birthright and destiny. There is a new prototype to be released within you for the nation. In this year of harvest and new wine, ‘be the new wineskin’ that carries the new wine in this season. The faith of Jesus Christ leaps within you and causes you birth the new and the now. Full circle…covenant blessings are being released with you, North Dakota!’” (Betty Love, 3/4/2019)
“When you thresh the mountains, you get a plain. The Spirit of God said to me, ‘The people of North Dakota are going to rise up with faith in such a way that they are going to unite. They are going to become a new sharp, threshing instrument, in such a way that the mountains of the past will not be able to stop them in the future. And they will have a voice of decree that will cause every mountain that has stopped the move of God to begin to fall and the mountains will become as a plain.’ Though you feel like you are isolated, thinking, ‘What influence could I have?’ you are going to be known for some of the greatest influence that our nation has seen. I will do something in this state that represents the territorial wineskin that I am attempting to present to My people. I will require from North Dakota a connection and a relationship that represents what the Spirit is saying to the Church in the entire territory. I will deal with the circle or the plain called North Dakota, and I will produce a new wineskin from that plain. I declare North Dakota a new wineskin of this land!” (Chuck Pierce, 50 State Tour)
“I heard the Lord say, ‘I want to heal this state.’ That’s really big, by the way! This is far greater than somebody getting up and saying your crops are going to do better this year. If there is a spirit of healing that really begins to flow through this state, I just want you to know, it is going to affect everything—absolutely everything. It is going to affect the weather patterns; it’s going to affect the crops; it will affect the animals; it will affect your churches; it will affect your kids; it will affect your grandparents; it will affect everything. It will release healing of relationships. It will release signs and wonders.” (Dutch Sheets, 50 States Tour)
North Dakota, we bless you in your birthright and destiny. Let faith that works by love rise up in you now so that you possess the fullness of the rich inheritance that is yours. We declare that the fullness of God comes in North Dakota and overflows into our nation. 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.
