Dear Friend and Believer,
Stand in your front or backyard, extend your hand in the direction of the Atlantic and speak to Hurricane Irene. In Mark 4:35-39, Jesus Christ spoke to the weather and commanded it to be calm. So, as believers, we are following His example. Pray with the authority that has been given to you in Jesus Christ and pray in faith. Please pray this prayer out loud and with fervency and determination. God has placed His power in our verbal expressions, so lift up your voice. Believe that your prayers will produce results in Jesus’ Name. Please pray this prayer at least two times per day until Hurricane Irene has passed.
Thank you, in advance, for standing on the wall for the Eastern Seaboard and Mid-Atlantic regions.
Almighty Father, thank You for blessing the United States. Thank You for Your continued love, grace, and provision for our nation. Thank You for redemption and salvation through Your Son, Jesus Christ. There is none like You. You are great and Your Name is great in might. Who would not fear You, O King of the nations? This is Your rightful due. Among all the wise men of the nations and in all their kingdoms, there is none like You. We acknowledge You as Lord over the United States.
Using the authority given to us in the Name of Jesus, we speak to Hurricane Irene and we command peace, be still! We command the winds to dissipate and the barometric pressure to rise and normalize. By faith, we declare that Irene will not bring the projected harm or devastation to the Eastern Seaboard or Mid-Atlantic regions.
Holy Spirit, we ask you to touch the heart of every believer to pray against this hurricane and calm the fears of every citizen, especially children and the elderly.
Merciful Father, please forgive us for our many sins. Please forgive disobedience, rebellion, unbelief, forms of idolatry, shedding of innocent blood, immorality, and the rejection of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Father, have mercy on this region of the country. Lord, have mercy on our entire nation.
Help the citizens of this region to overcome their temptations and deliver them from this impending destruction. We ask You to destroy every satanic assignment against them.
Now to You, the King Eternal, Immortal, Invisible, to You who alone is wise be honor and glory forever and ever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
