National Day of Prayer 5/07/2020
I believe there is significance to the number seven on this year National Day of Prayer. We need to draw our attention to this fact, as we make our decrees and declarations.
The Lord has had His attention on this authentic number since the ancient of days.
The number #7 Hebrew meaning appears in scripture many times.
Joshua 5:13-7:20 Seven is the number of times the Israelites walked around the walls in Jericho under Joshua command.
Genesis 7:23 Seven was the number of animals that were brought on the Ark by Noah.
Exodus 20:10 The Sabbath was celebrated on the 7th day, the day of rest.
John 6-13 Jesus states, “I AM” seven times in the gospel book of John.
Lastly, I’d like to note, the seven letters to the seven churches in the book of Revelation chapters 2 and 3. The advice in these letters is prophetic, forewarning present-day Christian communities of the snares that can lure us away from our faith.
The number-seven is considered a Divinely Perfect number, completion, spiritual perfection, and covenant. It’s used to swear an oath, as well as represent the seven-branch on the menorah, which is symbolic of illuminating your spiritual life. The great I AM is the Light of the World ask for His Marvelous Light to be known and revealed. That walls would be brought down, shattered, dissolved, and resolved by His Might and Power. Ask for the preservation of the righteousness of His promises to stake a claim.
Today is a day of divine alignment for prayer
The menorah (/məˈnɔːrə/; Hebrew: מְנוֹרָה [menoˈʁa]) is described in the Bible as the seven-lamp (six branches) ancient Hebrew lampstand made of pure gold and used in the portable sanctuary set up by Moses in the wilderness and later in the Temple in Jerusalem. Fresh olive oil of the purest quality was burned daily to light its lamps.
OT and NT are related one to another. Genesis 3 offers the first mention of Jesus. John 3:14-15 says, Just as Moses lifted up the (bronze) serpent in the desert (on a pole), so must the Son of Man be lifted up (on a cross) so that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life. We must pray for Jesus to be lifted up that He may draw all men unto Him. Those who have been bitten or stung by spiritual warfare or sin look unto Jesus for healing, physically and spiritually.
Prayers and Decrees
Pray, ask, and seek fresh oil from the Holy Spirit to fill you, to be an illuminating light to those around you. May your lamps to be full, daily.
John 15 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you. …
Recall the words that He has spoken to you both the logos and the living words. He is the God who goes before you, preparing the way. The Lord spoke a word to me last August 5, 2019, regarding His Elect and Victory; I will pray into this Word contending and waging a good warfare.
Excerpt of Word August 5, 2019
This is a time to stand sure in truth, without guile. A time of moving into motion, faceting your face, coming humbly unto Me as you seek to stay with My pace.
Gears are changing: slippery slopes will be dismantled; claims will be of injustice.
But, Hear the Word of Lord: I stake My claim.
I claim I have claims in My elect: in truth, faithfulness, godliness.
The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The plans of His heart to all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is their Lord,
The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.
Also, I was directed to Psalms 111:9 as a turn around prayer for our Nation.
“He has sent redemption to His people; He has commanded His covenant forever:
Holy and awesome is His name.”
I have been graced with a personal and prophetic prayer assignment to declare victories and redemption even amid present dishonor. The victory is given according to His faithful covenant, mercy, and justice.
Psalms 44:4 You are my King and my God. Decree victories for your people. The verse 5-7 continues; for it is only by your power and through your name that we tread down our enemies; 6 I do not trust my weapons. They could never save me. 7 Only you can give us victory over those who hate us.
What has been your prayer blueprint? What have you learned as you’ve prayed? Where have you seen God grace you with His response? Is it in, thanksgiving, praise, prophetic prayer, travailing prayer, supplication and petitions, prayer burdens, or a gentle unction leading you by the Holy Spirit. It may be likely you enter into worship with one prayer on your spirit, and then He grants you favor and leads you to the next prayer burden. I implore you, friend, begin with the one prayer, friend!
Pray from the place of faith in the full assurance in which He has called you.
The assigned will bring the aligned
1 Timothy 1:18-19
This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, 19 having faith and a good conscience, which some having rejected, concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck
1 Peter 1:17-19
17 And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; 18 knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and spot.
Praise to God for His Faithfulness and Justice
Declare a Hallelujah

A good understanding have all those who do His commandments.
