WASHINGTON D.C. CROSS WALK
July 2020. For A Time Such As This.

 

The 2-sided tract I handed out to the residents of Washington D.C. as well as political aides to the president, congressional leaders and supreme court justices.

After the Richmond, Virginia prayer cross walk for the city’s Thin Blue Line and its 232,000 souls, Jeanette and I headed for our nation’s Capitol, about 110 miles away. In February, 2017 we cross walked and prayed hard and long in D.C. for not only our nation’s political leaders, but for the city’s 720,000 souls as well. Because of the extreme political unrest throughout America, we felt the strong urge to return and walk the cross and pray once again for national healing and revival.

After settling into our motel room, we prayed that this pray cross walk would be even more successful and powerful than the 2017 walk. Almost 2,700 miles from home, Jeanette and I slept like babies throughout the night. The journey from Bakersfield to D.C. had been long. BUT HERE WE WERE ONCE AGAIN!

WHERE YOU GOING WITH THAT BIG CROSS?

The next morning while Jeanette prayed, I traveled the four miles from our room to my favorite parking spot just a block away from the Capitol Building.

The large cross is an attention getter! As I unloaded the 10-foot, 60-pound cross from Go-Ye-Mobile-2, I couldn’t help but notice the large number of individuals walking by and whose eyes were fixed intently on the cross. Some faces were filled with curiosity. Frowns filled a few. But plenty of the faces had happy smiles. I shouted out, “Good morning!” to all who passed by. Most returned the greeting.

A loud voice filled the air. “Where you taking that cross?” I turned to look and noticed a man dressed in a business suit smiling as he awaited my answer.

I explained the purpose of the cross walk. The young man shared that he was an aide to one of the senators and he would let him know that a cross walker from Bakersfield, California was in D.C. today to pray for all three branches of the federal government. “You know Kevin McCarthy?” he asked as he walked away. “Not personally,” I answered. “But we are from the same city.” Kevin McCarthy is the House Minority Leader in the United States House of Representatives.

PRAYING HARD AND LONG FOR AMERICA’S CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS

The United States Capitol Building is an awesome sight. Here, legislative, or law-making, partisan and bipartisan decisions affecting our entire nation are made.

In 2017, the area around the huge Capitol Mall was filled with people from every walk of life. Tourists. Visitors. Employees. Workers. Reporters.

But not so today. The Corona virus had changed all that. As I walked up to the Capitol building, very few people were present. A barrier fence was now surrounding the Capitol. Capitol police were also stationed every fifty feet or so behind the barrier fence.

Walking up to the main entrance, I waved at the Capitol police, hoisted the cross up right and began to pray hard and long for all the congressional members of the Legislative Branch of our federal government.

Because every law passed by Congress will affect the citizens of the United States and because the God of all creation wants a nation’s laws to be righteous, holy¬† and just for all people according to His standards and truths, there are specifically two things I ask the LORD to do whenever I pray for political leaders:

(1). That He places into office men and women who will vote according to His will and purposes.

(2) That He replaces all men and women who will not vote according to His will and purposes.

Of course, my prayer is so much more than the above, As are all my public prayers, this one was loud and long and for all to hear.

PRAYING AGAINST AMERICA’S TRUE ENEMIES

Believers Must Know Our True Enemies If We Are To Pray Successfully Against America’s True Enemies.

Most important, and because the Word of God informs believers that our true battle isn’t against opposing political factions, I pray hard and long against both the covert and overt satanic-led forces of darkness mentioned in the 6th chapter of Ephesians from the New Testament:

THE GATES OF HADES. Literally, the hierarchy and authority of Satan’s kingdom:
(1) SATAN. The Master Of Disaster And Deception. The “god of this world.” This fallen archangel rules over a dark kingdom that makes war against humans who love Jesus Christ and all who are for moral righteousness.
(2) PRINCIPALITIES, OR DIABOLICAL OVERLORDS. THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH OF THE SATANIC GOVERNMENT.
Literally, “prince over a pality” or region. These highest-ranking rulers in the satanic kingdom control all other ranks of demons and demonic forces here on Earth. They have jurisdiction over certain areas or locations. There are principalities over nations, cities and districts. Principalities instruct demonic forces to propagate and promote political, religious, ethnic and racial discord, division, distrust and hatred among humans.
(3) POWERS, OR SATANIC JUDICIARIES. THE JUDICIAL BRANCH OF THE SATANIC GOVERNMENT.
These high-ranking magistrates also control demons, and plan out and administer satanic deceptions, assaults and attacks against humans. They also plot to undermine the moral laws of God by advocating satanically-influenced freedoms, vices, habits, practices, lifestyles and preferences.
(4) RULERS OF DARKNESS, OR INFERNAL LEGISLATORS. THE LEGISLATIVE BRANCH OF THE SATANIC GOVERNMENT.
These powerful wicked and evil spirits have infiltrated the political and religious structure of the world, and create and propagate false philosophies, false religions and false and counterfeit gospels, including Eastern religions, New Age philosophies, religious humanistic, atheistic humanism and cults, which include religious- based or humanistic-based terrorist movements and organizations that advocate “jihad,” or holy war against “infidels,” and “rahowa” or racial holy war against other races.
(5) WICKED SPIRITUAL HOSTS, OR DEMONIC FORCES. THE UNCLEAN SPIRITS AND WICKED DEMONS.
These are demons and evil spirits of low rank and position, the grunt soldiers of the satanic kingdom. Their job is to possess, oppress, obsess and distress humans, cause diseases, wage war on Christians, and carry out the overall diabolical plan of Satan and his high-ranking minions.
