70 Days – Righteousness Exalts a Nation – Day 39
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 21: Mississippi, December 10, 1817
His banner over us is love!
“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.
“They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations. Aliens will shepherd your flocks; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards. And you will be called priests of the Lord, you will be named ministers of our God. You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast. “Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so, they will inherit a double portion in their land, and everlasting joy will be theirs.
“For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery and iniquity. In my faithfulness I will reward the mand make an everlasting covenant with them. 9 Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the Lord has blessed.
“I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations. (Isaiah 61; NIV)

A prayer you can pray:
Father, Your Banner over us is Love! Mississippi, we bless you in your birthright and destiny. We agree with the prophetic destiny that has been decreed over you. Your mountains are coming alive in righteousness. The voice of the Lord is upon your waters. The revolutionary sounds of heaven and the revolutionary Spirit of the Lord is rising out of you. Mississippi, your voice is overflowing into the nation. We decree, “You are the rudder state that turns the nation in righteousness.” Mississippi, you are a birthplace state that can incubate vision and birth new prototypes. You were the birthplace of the first lung and heart transplants, the birthplace of American music, and much more. People are going to come to Mississippi to watch the nation. You are becoming the decree!
“‘Mississippi will be transformed,’ the Lord says. ‘I will break generations-old curses off the State of Mississippi. You will see poverty broken off of that State. There will come a sweeping outpouring of My Holy Spirit that transforms the State of Mississippi in a way that no one will be able to explain other than they will say, “This is God!” I will break poverty off of that State. Mississippi will become a haven for Me. I will bring such a healing of the racial division and breach that has ruled that State and region. I will bring such healing that it will astound and amaze, and institutions and educators will come to that region to study so that they can write in history and try and explain how this amazing transformation occurred. The outpouring of My Spirit will be so strong in that region that signs, wonders, and miracles will reach levels that this generation has never seen. Creative miracles will flow in the State of Mississippi,’ the Lord says.” (Dutch Sheets, King’s Way Church, Pensacola, FL, November 17, 2012)
“Mississippi is going to be a birthplace once again. Where she has been last she will be first. In this, Mississippi is going to become a state of great wealth in ideas—inventions and innovations. She will lead in economics.” (Anna Love, July 2015)
(Dutch Sheets) “We dare to decree this night that the State of Mississippi is now unshackled from the sins of the past, and the blessing of the Lord can now return to this region, and the Shekinah, the Glory of God, can come to this region. He can be recognized in this place, and the strongholds of darkness that have existed here can be broken. We say, ‘Mississippi, come forth! Mississippi, live!’ We say, ‘Mississippi has a healthy heart. Mississippi’s veins are cleaned up, and life is now permeating the atmosphere.’ Holy Spirit will come to schools, to high schools, to grade schools, middle schools, colleges, universities, and there will be the greatest outpouring of Holy Spirit on the universities and the campuses of this nation that has ever been seen.
Anne Tate from GOZ – “He is getting ready to bring you (MS) into a place that every state envies that they believed God for. They want to have that visitation but the Lord says ‘if you will agree with Me and you will agree with your new identity, then you will begin to walk in it from this moment forward.’ He said ‘you will be the envy of every state in the United States and you will be a prototype that they will be able to follow, and you will start a movement in this nation.’” ( MS SOARING CONFERENCE, USM, Hattiesburg, August 3, 2018)
United States of America and State of Mississippi, we declare over you, “Now Worship! Now Word! Now Works!” Lord, be it unto us according to your Word, your will and your way, in The Name Of Jesus Christ, 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.
