Lisa Watts, Saint Charles, IL March 24, 2021, 4:03 pm

Dear Lord, you are sovereign over all things. We pray for those individuals in leadership in our state and local governmental roles. Anoint them with your spirit of TRUTH, Conviction, Repentance, and that there hearts would be touched by the gentleness of your Holy Spirit. We know that it can be done, as we saw with the transformation evidenced in the Apostle Paul. That these leaders would be convicted to return to the moral principles based on the Bible to run our government and society. For we know when the moral base is removed from society what is left is a government based society whose programs are what people rely on. Wake up the church to return to being a church led by your Holy Spirit vs. what the government/society tells them to do. We know that your armies of angels are there protecting your children as we go through these changed times. We call upon you to HELP your people through these changed times. Show us how to go out and be salt and light in the midst of this turmoil. We claim you as our "Our mighty Fortress,... Our Helper amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing". Change the hearts of our leaders back to you, the Victorious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Help us through this time to remember you ARE the Victor in the end. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen

Mary Cullinane, Huntley, IL March 17, 2021, 12:54 pm

Lord I pray today for senators Duckworth and Durbin. Lord, we need your divine intervention to change their hearts so that they can see the fraud and injustice that these bills are bringing to American. Lord I ask your Holy Spirit to open their eyes so that they vote to keep the Filibuster, they reject the "Equality Act" that has nothing to do with equality and will take away our religious freedom to worship you openly. I pray you give them courage today to reject the "For the People" bill which legalizes fraud. Lord, you hate fraud and injustice. Please do what only you can do and turn this thing around. We worship only you and we are asking you to clean up our state and our country so that we have righteous leaders in the land and we can live peaceful lives. We look to you as our redeemer and provider. Lord hear our prayer for mercy and miracle. In the name of Jesus, the one who so wonderfully intercedes on our behalf day and night. Amen.

Lauren Moore, Mount Prospect, IL March 11, 2021, 2:29 pm

Praying for God to call upon righteous leaders in all positions in Illinois. Illinois is hurting. Wake up your children of God, bring about new children of God. Defeat the evil and the enemy.

chris everett, Forest Park, IL March 10, 2021, 11:47 am

Lord, wake up your prayer warriors in the State of Illinois. Turn this state to You, in Jesus Name. Amen.

Mary Cullinane, Huntley, IL March 10, 2021, 10:34 am

Lord, I worship you as the creator of the universe and the lover of our souls. I thank you for the love you have so freely poured out over and over again and for the mercy you have shown your people in the past. I ask you now to forgive us and pour out your mercy once again. Today I ask that you deal directly with Senator Durbin as he has taken a leading role in legalizing illegal election policies, support of abortion, misleading gender laws and so many other laws of "man". Lord, you hate deceit and injustice. You hate arrogance and pride. Please forgive me for my lack of prayer in the past for our government leaders. I am now asking you to visit and save all those in power that can be saved and to remove and silence those that refuse to hear you voice and accept your salvation and truth. Thank you for the ultimate sacrifice of your Son, Jesus,. and for this love. Jesus, please continue to intercede now on the behalf of Illinois citizens as well as all Americans. We do not look to government for salvation and preservation, we only look to YOU, but we do seek to live peacefully in our land with righteous leaders. Lord hear our prayer in Jesus Name, Amen.

Elder Paula Tolefree, Chicago, IL February 17, 2021, 11:49 am

Brother Dave and Sister Georgia, Greater Chicago area February 15, 2021, 8:15 pm

We pray that all of USA leaders will become more Godly and pledge to uphold the USA Constitution, allow religious freedom, support our military and veterans, protect our borders, promote law and order, allow free speech, balance the budget, and cease all partisan politics. Our good Master Jesus Christ and his many agents are helping all Godly persons in this needed task. Amen

Paul Babicz, Northlake, IL February 8, 2021, 7:15 am

I pray for the leaders of Illinois to STOP the corruption and lack of real leadership. Please help them to make the right decisions for the people they represent . we as a state need to get back to the LORD just as the rest of the nations needs to do. In the MIGHT NAME OF JESUS. Amen.

Darcel Vails, Evergreen Park, IL February 8, 2021, 5:26 am

Lord, I magnify the name of the Lord Jesus above all other names. You are king of kings and Lord of lords and I declare your lordship over all of Illinois. I declare and decree our homes and communities to be a dwelling place for the presence of God. I use Zachariah 2:5 which says "and I myself will be a wall of fire around it declares the Lord and I will be its Glory within". we bought our hearts before you Lord this day and we intercede and repent for the sins of our state. We asked you to forgive our sins and cleanse Illinois from all unrighteousness. We asked for a Divine visitation of the holy spirit in Illinois and may our state as a whole turn to you Lord.. we plead the blood of Jesus over Illinois and declare and decree that Jesus is Lord over this state.. we take authority over every negative word or witchcraft prayer that has been spoken over Illinois and we declare them null and void today in Jesus name...we declare the blood of Jesus over our borders and City Gates and we ask you Lord to send your warring angels to surround our borders and keep out all evil and those with evil intent. May those involved in drugs, trafficking, greed and pride in other evils be cast out today in Jesus name. Lord there is a spirit of idolatry that is being disguised as social justice. It is that Spirit of Babylon it is nefarious, insidious, an evil plot that is being masked as something else. It is a spirit that calls evil good and good evil and as it says in Isaiah 5:20 "woe to those who call evil good and good evil, that puts darkness for light and light for darkness, that puts bitter for sweet and Sweet for bitter". Lord we can't be right without righteousness and we can't achieve wholeness without Holiness. Help us to distinguish between things that just look right and things that are of your righteousness.... Lord cleanse our hearts and renew our minds to know your word and your will for this state. Father remove the scales from citizens eyes to see the truth, the truth that brings righteousness and holiness... In Jesus name I pray amen and amen.
