My husband is a diehard Eagles fan so we’ve been down this road a couple times over the last 28 years. Nevertheless, we were hopeful this game would not be disappointing. Needless to say, it wasn’t! Although, I watched it through a different lens than I normally would have.
A couple of hours before the game yesterday, I had an overwhelming sense of a divine download. I had an intense feeling that this game was of utmost prophetic importance, with the team names being the first part. The Eagles represented the Lord and I was reminded of Isaiah 40:31 “But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” The Patriots represented a major territorial and flesh-driven spirit. At this point, I started paying closer attention to what I was feeling.
I interceded through the entire game. I noticed that while the Eagles had penalty after penalty, and the Patriots had less than a handfull called, they prevailed each time. The enemy tried to hold them down, but Jesus lifted them up! My husband was upset at a couple of their plays, but I reassured him that this is a divinely appointed game, and the Eagles would win. Jesus always prevails. Always. Although, I will admit even I was wondering what the Lord was doing at the one point where they fell behind. However, it all worked out, didn’t it?
Watching the game and praying also increased the sense of expectation I was experiencing and lasted well into the night. I couldn’t sleep because of the downloads I was receiving, all of which I haven’t had time to even write down and begin meditating on. I believe there will be more pieces of this puzzle to come across the nation throughout the prophetic circles. There is not only significance in the names of the teams, but the game score and the areas they come from.
All I know is a major spiritual shift has taken place and Jesus will now be exalted on a scale we have never seen. His Kingdom is advancing at an accelerated pace and His enemies are falling. We are taking back ground the enemy has stolen and with Jesus, we have the upper hand!
When the Lord first told me to pray for this nation over jars of dirt almost two years ago, the main point was to bless and not curse. At all times. For all prayers. How I long for God’s people to fully grasp the power we have in our words. We may not agree with the person, but we must respect the office. It doesn’t matter who is in the office, it is a person who needs prayer. And the prayers we pray must be prayers of blessing, encouragement, to build up, to plant, to edify, to prophesy. Scripture tells us to pray for “all who are in authority…that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence” (1 Timothy 2:1-2 NKJV).
The below word just continues to reinforce the mandate I was given and I passed on to those of you who interceded along with me. Keep praying, keep blessing, keep moving forward.
I love you all!
Prophetic Word Regarding President Trump & Intercessors – A Word by Joe Dawson
Recently, I had a very powerful and profound prophetic dream about the United States of America’s President Donald Trump. As soon as I awakened from this dream, I felt an urgency in my spirit to release this dream to the American people. As soon as I woke up, I asked God to speak to me at a deeper level to give me clear insight on what I saw in the dream.
In the dream, it was as though I was seeing things from a heavenly realm and a higher perspective. The Lord showed me a live vision of President Trump and a number of our national leaders. The national leaders were leaders of many different divisions and departments of America as well as the Senators and Governors from numerous states, Republicans and Democrats alike. There was a hedge of protection around President Trump and the key leaders of America. It was as if an angelic host had created a sphere-like barrier around President Trump and the national leaders. Even though there was a huge demonic attack and presence surrounding these national leaders from every side and covering them, the hedge of protection was all around them and above them. They were completely protected from this demonic attack. It was as if they were enveloped in huge bubble of divine protection.
In the vision, the enemy was trying to find a way to penetrate the covering and the hedge of protection was getting smaller and weaker by the minute. The attacks, schemes and tricks of the enemy were getting closer and closer to our president and the national leaders. As these attacks were getting stronger and closer to President Trump and the different national leaders I could tell that the enemy was strategically trying to block out their clarity in decision-making and strike fear into the hearts of the leaders.
Then as I came out of the dream and began to wake up, the Lord showed me very plainly the plan that He has. The Lord said, “If the intercessors of America will arise in this hour the hedge of protection will become stronger. It will push back the resistance of the enemy.” The Lord spoke to me about telling the Christians to start praying like never before for a hedge of protection to grow around our president and the key leaders of America. We must pray that the Lord will release His angel armies to be dispatched to guard President Trump and our other national leaders. The Lord showed me that the stronger the hedge of protection is around our leaders, the farther away we can drive back the attacks of the enemy. The more wisdom and clarity our leaders have the more key decisions will be made. The enemy is trying to cloud and confuse their decision-making process but as we pray, the enemy will be defeated!
So many people in America are speaking word curses over our nation, our president, our senators, governors, officers, and other leaders. The Lord spoke to me to warn and teach people that these word curses are used mightily of the enemy. This is why the Lord said we must speak blessings out of our mouth over our nation. This is the season that the children of God through their declarations and prayers can bring change and a huge shift to America. Let no negative word come from your mouth over anybody in a governmental position. We must declare the kingdom of God to come forth in our nation, in this hour. The next 90 days will shape the rest of President Trump’s presidency. The next 90 days will be shaped by the intercessors and prayer warriors who are declaring and praying this hedge of protection and angelic host around our nation’s leaders. We must pray for America and our president. The next 90 days will help shape America for the next 30 to 40 years. I encourage everyone to fast and pray for America and our government leaders, as well of the leaders of the church of America, like never before!

We must not stop praying for this nation, but continue to press on. Speaking love and speaking the truth over our land; speaking unity and declaring God’s promises. Lou Engle has issued a call for a 3 day Esther fast and prayer from March 8-March 11. I encourage you to read the following post and if it resonates, join in. Do what you can, however you can. I fully understand that not everyone is able to fast 3 days without food and water. Let the Holy Spirit lead you.
I had a dream last night that I poured all the dirt from jars into a container and planted sunflower seeds. It is time to unite the dirt. If you have any dirt that you would like to be included, let me know and I will give you my address.
We must continue to pray and speak words of love over this nation, words of unity, words of peace. Despite what is happening in the natural, our intercession is having an effect.
I love you all!
I hear the Lord say “Don’t take the hate bait. I AM love and I have called you to love. Love is not difficult when you look to Me for the strength and how to properly love those in your sphere of influence. As you tap into My love to love others, I will enlarge your territory.
The enemy will set traps and snares, sometimes obvious, often hidden, baited with opportunities to hate. React in and with love, do not take his bait. Love covers, love conquers and love completes. You are well able to love because of My great love for you.”
Despite what we see, Papa’s love never fails. Even in the most difficult circumstances, love will win.
The Lord showed me a snake sniffing around with its tongue. I watched as a pair of scissors reached in and cut out the snake’s tongue, rendering it powerless. and useless.
Snakes generally use their tongues to search out prey. There are many across the nation the enemy has sought out and grabbed hold of as prey, using their tongues to spread fire.
- Pray for the tongue of the enemy to be cut out, silencing him
- Pray for every work already spoken by him and his followers null and void
- Pray for an unleashing of the light of heaven into the areas the enemy has tried to claim as dark
- Continue to speak blessing and not cursing over your state governments, to speak healing over our land, for unity and peace
I shared the following on my personal Facebook page as well as a FB group I belong to. For those of you who gathered dirt into jars to speak love, life and blessings to, joining me on this fantastic prophetic journey, please continue to do so! Do not relent in speaking heaven into the earth. Heaven is joyfully relentless in its pursuit of us, we need to be just as relentlessly pursing the Kingdom’s manifestation here on earth.
Be light. Be love. Speak life. Speak love.
Praying and prophesying the Word of God.
The Word of God is living and active, it does what He sends it out to do and never, ever returns void. There is power in declaring personalized Scripture over people, nations, situations, etc. Our nation is in turmoil and now more than ever we need to declare the word of God.
The following are my Scripture prayers and prophetic declarations for our nation, let us join together and become one unified voice. Where the light is, darkness has no power. Let us shine our lights.
They who dwell in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my nation’s and governmental leaders refuge and fortress;
our God, in Him we will trust.”
Surely He shall deliver us from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover us with His feathers,
And under His wings we shall take refuge;
His truth shall be our shield and buckler.
We shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at our side,
And ten thousand at our right hand;
But it shall not come near us.
Only with our eyes shall we look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
Because we have made the Lord, who is our refuge,
Even the Most High, our dwelling place,
No evil shall befall us,
Nor shall any plague come near our dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over us,
To keep us in all your ways.
In their hands, they shall bear us up,
Lest we dash your foot against a stone.
We shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent we shall trample underfoot.
“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for our nation and governmental leaders, and to ask that they may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that they may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified them to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered them from the power of darkness and conveyed them into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom there is redemption through His blood, and the forgiveness of sins.
We bow our knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant this nation’s leaders, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith; that we, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that we may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit (Proverbs 18:21 NKJV).
As an intercessor with a national mandate, I have let the enemy silence me for too long in praying for the state of our nation and the current political climate. Earlier this week I had a moment where I realized I had a crack in my armor that had been sneakily exploited. Well, after some time with the Holy Spirit, we have exterminated the infiltrators and sealed the crack so that it is no longer even visible.
At the beginning of the call to pray over jars of dirt for this nation, the Lord deeply impressed upon me that I was to bless and not curse, and to instruct the intercessors who joined me to do the same. It has been a difficult journey, and while going through my silence, I did not bless as I should have. Forgive me.
Getting back on track – I am deeply, deeply disturbed, heartbroken and saddened by the level of condemnation, conflict and cursing (not swear words) coming from the mouths of professed Believers. So, I’m going to share some thoughts.
As for our political candidates, let us not forget they are human and Jesus died for them. It is not our place to decide who is telling the truth about conversion, or who is truly evil and hell bound. That is a judgment ascribed to God Himself. We do not see Jesus, who was the very representation of God, condemning anyone while He walked the earth. We must be very, very cautious of the words we speak over our candidates, and nation. Most of the reason we are in our current situation is because of careless and thoughtless word curses and manipulative prayers spoken. We must utilize wisdom and discernment to see beyond the natural realm. It is NOT the person, it is the spirit behind them influencing their decisions and that is who we need to be praying against. Look at who they surround themselves with, read between the lines of what they say and watch body language. I truly believe God does not speak one word to one person and an opposite word to another. That is not the nature of God. He desires unity, He will not sow discord and chaos. It is imperative that we stop listening to the impostor’s voice, which feeds our personal belief structure, values, denominational beliefs and opinions. We must NOT pray our opinions over people, instead, discern for ourselves that which is the True word of God and His heart in the situation.
It is perfectly okay to have a differing opinion and perspective than someone else, this is the beauty of uniqueness; it is not okay to spew hatred for another’s opinion and perspective without first considering what their particular point of view is. You and I may witness the same event, yet we will have differing perspectives of what actually happened based on where we were watching from, how close or far, whether or not we could hear the conversation or if we were or were not personally involved. It is time to step out of our comfort zones and consider others more than ourselves.
My personal take on this election system is that we are not voting for a person, we are voting for our future. We are voting for the Spirit, but we have to understand that there are also other spirits at play that want in on the action. As the Church, we must not be so quick to denounce one another because someone plans to vote for one candidate over another, or refuses to vote at all. I believe there is a Jezebel spirit at work, and where there is Jezebel, there is an Ahab letting her have her own way. We must begin to unite in our prayers for Jezebel is not one to just leave because she gets upset. She is relentless and devouring, she is cunning and leads people into idolatry and fornication. Take a close look at our candidates, look beyond the physical and the person and look into the spirit. Begin to ask Papa how to pray for our election, what His heart is and how to eradicate the spirits seeking to set themselves on high. We have been given all authority in Christ, it’s time we behaved like it.
