This may include mapping, decreeing and declaring, walk abouts, driving cars praying, setting aside a set time to pray, fasting, walking neighborhoods, communion, using your prayer language, incorporating teams to pray with you at strategic points in your cities and neighborhoods. Be led of the Lord. Let the Lord unveil and reveal His chosen strategies for your city. God may require different strategies for different cities. As you pray for your city, please add your country.

Pastors from all over the city led prayers over various topics from Marriage to Business, to Media and more. Together we prayed out loud a prayer of repentance – chilling in it’s scope. While I have attended the day of prayer events in the past and even called people to join in — this time there was something different in the air. I don’t know if people realize how much trouble we are in as a nation, but they seemed to. There was a spirit of humility in the air, a sense of urgency to get it right, a calling that we must beseech the Lord for His grace and mercy in this time. We have failed to do the things necessary to protect this nation in this hour. We do not know if there is time to turn things around, but we do know the solutions are beyond our abilities. We will need the intervention of the Lord God Almighty every step of the way.
