70 Days – Righteousness Exalts a Nation – Day 59
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 41: South Dakota, November 2, 1889
“…Jesus said, ‘If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then, you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’” (John 8:31-32; NIV)
“The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; He is their stronghold in time of trouble. The Lord helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in Him.” (Psalm 37:39-40; NIV)
“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies.” (Psalm 18:2-3; NIV)
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.” (2 Corinthians 10:3-6; NKJV)

A prayer you can pray:
Father, we come into agreement with your Kingdom plan and redemptive purposes for our nation and the State of South Dakota. Lord, you are our rock, our fortress and our deliverer; our God is our rock, in whom we take refuge. You are our shield and the horn of our salvation, our stronghold. We call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and we are saved from our enemies. We declare, “The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; He our stronghold in time of trouble. The Lord helps us and delivers us; He delivers us from the wicked and saves us, because we take refuge in Him.”
South Dakota, you are “The Stronghold State”. We decree over the State of South Dakota and our nation, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.” (2 Corinthians 10:3-6; NKJV)
“Clearly, now the Spirit is stirring here and something quite spiritually significant is underway. God is going to use this state very strategically to take down national strongholds. You are always going to see coming out of South Dakota an expression of truth. You are going to always have great influence, because God has put that anointing on this particular state. So, you are going to have to learn how to express yourself the way that God would have you express yourself, because you will have influence. I would say to you, ‘Not any would have thought I would have watched after South Dakota; but I say My eye is upon you and from this place the nation will begin to be legislated.’” (Chuck Pierce, 50 States Tour)
“South Dakota, the Lord desires truth in your inner parts; He teaches you His wisdom in your inmost place. Because you love righteousness and hate wickedness, the Lord has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your companions. Revelation knowledge is being poured out upon the State of South Dakota because God calls you His friend. The Spirit of Truth is upon this state. You will know the truth and the truth will set you free. South Dakota there is a strong apostolic prophetic governmental mantle that is resting upon you to legislate heaven. The voice of the Lord is upon the waters of the ekklesia. You are turning your enemies at the gate! ‘The Lord has given you His jurisdiction, the right and authority to carry out the action, to tread upon serpents and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy. Nothing shall by any means harm you.’ (Luke 10:19). The strongman and the stronghold of the enemy has been exposed and revealed within you now. South Dakota, all ungodly influence is removed from you. The strongman has been stripped of his authority and no longer has a voice. The voice of the Righteous Reformer will realign this state to be a voice of reformation in the nation.” (Betty Love, 3/4/2019)
Father, we bless the 7 mountains within this pro-life state with Your righteousness and truth. Thank you for mantling the State of South Dakota with a fresh mantle of Your Glory in this New Era. Influence is power. We bless this state that “rules under God” and carries such great influence in our nation. South Dakota, enter into your inheritance and rise up. Take your place of authority in 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.
