Destroying the Works of the Enemy
One way we can pray is to go to into the Heavenly courts for a judgment, and use the Lord’s righteous Judgement/Verdict to administer His Justice throughout the earth. As we tune our ear to the Lord, He instructs us what to pray that will put an axe to the root of the culture of death and abortion in our nation. The Lord has a way of bringing issues to the surface as we draw near.
The Unshaken Kingdom
We prepare our case in tune with the Holy Spirit, and come boldly and confidently, but also humble ourselves and use proper courtroom protocols. We are told:
“But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than the blood of Abel.”
~ Hebrews 12:22-24 NASB
The Courts of Heaven
“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and a thank offering and into His courts with praise!
Be thankful and say so to Him, bless and affectionately praise His name!”
~ Psalm 100:4 AMP
We are to honour the court: Our Father is the righteous judge and King Jesus is our lawyer (advocate – pleading our case before the Father). We have come “… to Jesus, the Mediator (Go-between, Agent) of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood which speaks [of mercy], a better and nobler and more gracious message than the blood of Abel [which cried out for vengeance].” (Hebrews 12:24)
The books of our case are opened by true worship and tears of intercession.
“I, even I, am He Who blots out and cancels your transgressions, for My own sake, and I will not remember your sins. Put Me in remembrance [remind Me of your merits]; let us plead and argue together. Set forth your case, that you may be justified (proved right).”
~ Isaiah 43:25-26
Presenting our case is about stating a case that grants God the legal right, as judge, to make a righteous judgement on our behalf. God will not violate His Word in making judgements. We are to remind God of the destinies and purposes (especially of the unborn and the aborted) that have been or would be stolen by the enemy, and of our nation being righteous and humbly relying on God.
Silencing the Accuser
The “accuser of the brethren” (whether we are aware of it or not) speaks in the courts why we are disqualified from receiving our requests. He will speak of our personal sins, the sin of our bloodline, words spoken against us or by us, even spoken by other Christians or family members. These things give the enemy the legal right to withhold our prayer requests from coming to pass.
We are to confess our sin and the sin of previous generations. We are to forgive those who have sinned against us in word or deed – ask the Holy Spirit to help in this in order to do a complete work; take time to do this, as we repent on behalf of ourselves, our nation, or others.
We may need to repent on behalf of our nation for many things that are going on, or have gone on in secret. For being a nation who has been idolatrous, sexually immoral, and not valuing but destroying precious life. The Holy Spirit may even reveal other atrocities that have opened up in the region, that are part of the door to abortion in that region.
We then ask for the blood of Jesus to cleanse all the sin. As we do this, the accuser’s voice is silenced before the Judge, and it sets in place all the witnesses on our behalf to speak, especially the Blood of Jesus (see Hebrews 12). We are also to speak reminding of the injustice of the destinies and purposes (especially of the unborn and the aborted), that have been stolen by the enemy.
Judge of All’s Righteous Judgement
Next, we ask the Father to make a just verdict based upon the case that we have presented and the authority of His Word, and the stolen destinies of the unborn or aborted. Then wait to hear the judgement – and make that decree. This is a decree/verdict (means legally enforceable) from God and must be obeyed by the enemy.
We only speak to the adversary once we have a legal judgement in place. Ask God for the strategy to enforce the righteous verdict and listen for His response – declarations of His Word are powerful; activate the hosts of Heaven through praying in the Spirit. As His Ekklesia, we are decreeing blessing into the situation, commanding in Jesus’ name that circumstances change and line up with God’s will or actions we are to take, or both.
Prayer: Father in Heaven, may Your Kingdom come and will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Lord, tune Your people into what we need to hear, say and pray in these days. Lord, awaken Your people to righteousness, and equip us to bring justice for the unborn, and those who are in any way involved in the giant of abortion in Australia. Let the faithful prayers be powerful and effective to slay that giant, to bring You glory and the reward of Your suffering. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Key Prayer Points may include:
- Lord, we pray for the SALRI students as they finalise their review of the abortion bill in SA; cause them to have a revelation of the truth of the humanity of the unborn, and the truth that our right to life is not subjective. Give them courage to speak out Your truth, Lord.
- Lord, we uphold the NSW Upper House Members of Parliament, and ask for You to move in the hearts of any of them who have been deceived; we pray for hearts of stone to be replaced with hearts of flesh. Open their ears to hear the truth and be moved to completely reject “The Reproductive Healthcare Reform Bill 2019”.
- May we hear Your voice and see what You are doing Lord, and be radically obedient to pray and take action with the grace You give us.
Spend time today listening to the Lord, and Pray what is on His Heart.
FAST + PRAY = LIFE
Today as we stand together ‘as one’ in prayer and fasting may the Lord:
STOP the proposed Abortion Reform Bill in South Australia – “Statutes Amendment (Abortion Law Reform) Bill.”
Push Back and eventually STOP Abortion in every state and territory in Australia!
SHIFT the culture of this Nation to Mercy, Peace, Righteousness and Justice
