HOPE on the Hill
WEEK OF PRAYER
APRIL 9 – 13, 2017
The focus of our prayers and declarations this week are the 7 mountains of a culture of a nation, a state, or a local community. For our purposes this week we will focus on our local communities.
· Why are these important to us?
These mountains of influence shape the culture and establish the spiritual climate of a nation and even a local community.
· Why hasn’t America experienced deep Christian renewal?
Because it takes more than one mountain to influence a nation for Christ in a long-term, generational manner.
· What is our strategy?
First, we take territory from satan in the place of prayer, with the power of the Holy Spirit, through the mighty weapons available to us.* Specifically, the weapons we will employ are listed in Ephesians 6 and we add to that the Word of God and worship. Each mountain has Scriptures for prayer and declaration. You may add others by finding the specific mountain on a blue sheet and write in the verse with a Sharpie that is provided.
Second, as we pray for a specific sphere of influence, God may them choose to use us in the very mountain for which we have prayed and declared the promises of God.
Scriptures may be applicable in more than one sphere.
Sunday – Business, Tuesday – Entertainment, Science and Medicine
Wednesday – Education and Government, Thursday – Family and Church
We will focus on our local community in each of these mountains. This is very important and we have to keep our focus on Jerusalem and Judea. This will, I believe, shift the spiritual atmosphere here like nothing we have ever done or seen. Frankly, I believe our communities get overlooked and forgotten. The Lord is no respecter of persons and places, so join us as we focus like a laser on our localities and the seven (7) mountains of influence.
