Generals International's Mike and Cindy Jacobs issued an urgent call to prayer this week. The prophetic couple invited every believer in the United States to fast and pray for the next three days.
"Placing ourselves under the blood of the Lamb of God and as the Spirit of God leads, let us do the following: repent of our national sin, renounce the same, revoke the enemy's power over the nation and rededicate America to God," the Jacobs said.
For Monday, August 8, the couple called for the nation to repentance and renunciation:
- Identificationally repent for the worship of any false gods or participation in any false religious activities. Use Daniel 9:1-19 as your guide.
- Repent for any covenant breaking that has occurred on a national level, including the breaking of treaties between the government and the Native Americans; the breaking of marriage covenants and the high divorce rate, even among Christian couples; and the breaking of individual promises made to God that have gone unfulfilled, including those who committed their lives to Christ who are now prodigals. See Leviticus 26:1-13.
- Repent for the sin of abortion. Ask the Lord to forgive our nation for embracing abortion as acceptable and to reverse Roe v Wade. Ask the Lord to extend healing to the body and soul of those who have chosen to abort a child and for the church to extend love and grace to them that they might find grace to help in time of need. Read Psalm 139:13-18 and Hebrews 4:15-16.
- Repent of any acts of injustice and corruption that occurred in your city, region and state that you are aware of. This might include former slavery and other racist activities, and the recent conflicts between the African-American community and the police. Jeremiah 22:3-5 will help you.
- Repent of the rampant sexual sin: pornography, sex trafficking, forced public acceptance of alternate forms of sexuality by the government, and immorality in general. Pray and meditate on 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 and 1 Corinthians 6:13-20.
- We also need to renounce the above activities and agree for the breaking and cancellation of every curse that became active as a result of the above activities.
On Tuesday, August 9, they ask for believers to revoke demonic strongholds that may have established thrones across the United States.
And on Wednesday, the last day of their call to prayer and fasting, the Jacobs ask for believers to rededicate the country to God.
Specifically, they ask for Christians to speak these Bible verses over the United States:
- Psalm 33 in its entirety.
- "Lord God of Israel, there is no God like You in heaven above or on earth below who keeps covenant and mercy with Your servants who walk before You with all their hearts" (1 Kings 8:23).
- "If we are faithless, he remains faithful; he cannot deny himself" (2 Tim. 2:13).
- "Sing to the LORD, all the earth; Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day. Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all the peoples. For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised. He is to be feared above all gods" (1 Chron. 16:23-25).
- "Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night....The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly will not stand in the judgment nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous" (Ps. 1:1-2 and 4-5).
- I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service of worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God" (Rom. 12:1-2).
- I will indeed bless you and I will indeed multiply your descendants as the stars of the heavens and as the sand that is on the seashore. Your descendants will possess the gate of their enemies" (Gen. 22:17).
