Father God, have mercy on our communities, our states, and our nation. I speak the name of Jesus over all who call America home; those who love You, and those who are lost. Have mercy on the lonely, discouraged, depressed, hurting, grieving, angry or broken-hearted. Father revive Your people! Renew our strength and determination to serve You and shine Your light to the lost of the world! Father, we humble ourselves before You and call on Your Holy name! Forgive us and help us to turn from our wicked ways! We pray and cry out to our Abba Father! Save us from our enemies and from the spiritual forces of darkness that we cannot see. Let the blood of our Savior, Your Son Jesus Christ, wash over our land and cause a great awakening of Your presence in our lives, our homes, our churches and our nation! Blessed be the name of the Lord! Forever and ever! Amen

Lord, we ask for your Shalom peace to fall upon the families of those who lost their lives, including the father whose twins were swept from his arms. Our hearts break for the suffering we see in Waverly. We ask that you will dispatch healing angles to minister to those who are grieving, who have lost family, friends and homes. Jesus, show your glory in these dark days. Remind us of the constant presence of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit - our Counselor. Father, we ask that you send helpers to be the hands and feet of Jesus to this community. We thank you that Tennesseeans are known for their quick response and heart to serve. That is a gift from you, Lord. We thank you that our prayers are heard and we believe for many missing people to be found alive. We know you are the God of impossible - all things are possible through You. It is in the matchless, powerful name of Jesus that we pray, Amen. Psalm 121:1-2 - "I lift my eyes to the mountains - where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth>

Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am praying for and lifting up our world leaders today Father. You are our refuge and stronghold in times of trouble. So, Father, I declare with my mouth that Your people dwell safely in this land. As these issues with Covid come out let us remember that we are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ. We give thanks Father that you are raising up Godly voices that will speak Your TRUTH over this country. The word of the Lord shall prevail. I ask that you place your anointing on those who believe in your name who are standing in Government and that those who have blind eyes and deaf ears, receive sight and hearing to recognize what is going on in this country. I plead the blood of Jesus Christ over, in, and through the White House and every Governmental place that establishes any laws on this country. I ask you Father to make us sensitive as intercessors to the prayers of the people.

13 Suppose I hold back the rain or send locusts[c] to eat the crops or make my people suffer with deadly diseases. 14 If my own people will humbly pray and turn back to me and stop sinning, then I will answer them from heaven. I will forgive them and make their land fertile once again. 15 I will hear the prayers made in this temple, 16 because it belongs to me, and this is where I will be worshiped forever. I will never stop watching over it. May you fear God More than anyone else. You have been called into this role for such as time as this. The people of God are standing with you.

Lord God, Creator of the Universe and all that is therein, I praise Your Holy name. I ask You to strengthen and encourage Intercessors in the State of Tennessee with Your Word ready in their mouth for your Word is powerful to pull down every thing that exalts itself against the Most High God. 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 TPT. I lift Governor Bill Lee, his cabinet, the legislators in TN and declare this aforementioned scripture over the State. I ask You to send a mighty outpouring of Your Holy Spirit with awakening in Nashville and to the entire state of TN. Let Your gospel go forth along I-40 to the east and west coast of the USA to glorify our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of kings. Also let it flow north and south on I -65 through AL and I-10 across Florida to the East.

Nancy Swecker, Elizabethton, TN April 8, 2021, 1:32 pm

Father, I pray for Rep. John Holsclaw, Jr. and Sen. Jon Lundberg to have ears to hear Your voice as they do their work in the TN State Legislature. I pray for them to have and use Godly wisdom. I pray they will never betray their constituents, never vote to pass any legislation that would deny Tennesseans the rights afforded by the U.S. Constitution.

VICTOR ANDREWS, Franklin, TN April 5, 2021, 10:08 pm

Lord God Almighty, you know everything and everyone. Your word tells us you know the hairs on our head, that you know when a sparrow falls, and we believe! We know you set our leaders up and you can take them down. We bless your name, Jesus and thank you for blessing us with God fearing, honest leaders integrity, who allow us to live Godly, quiet, peaceable lives so that we can pursue you with our devotions, and honor you with our actions. We know that there is coming a terrible day when our freedoms and liberties will be gone, let us never take them or you for granted. So, we ask that you guide our leaders into honest, accountable dealings. Protect those that server and honor you and thwart the actions of those that are corrupt. Help us all to see things they way you see them, through the eyes of a loving father! Amen.

Jola Moore, Goodlettsville, TN April 5, 2021, 8:11 am

Father, let our state TN be a leader in Godly governance, in righteous legislation that upholds Godly morals and values and reflects our Biblical beliefs. Let your righteousness exalt our state and our nation and remove all leaders who will not yield their hearts to Godliness. Give us righteous men and women in authority, all over TN and the USA, in Jesus name, Amen.

Roger Van Dyk, Knoxville, TN April 5, 2021, 7:58 am

As we lifted up many prayers for Knoxville, East Tennessee, and the state of Tennessee at the Sean Feucht worship / prayer / protest rally in Knoxville on April 3rd.....we continue to pray for Godliness, a moral compass, and Godly leadership and God's protection in our cities, counties and state.

Lord God Almighty, we come to You in the name of Jesus Christ, and in His name, we pray that You grant us godly and righteous leaders for the state of Tennessee, who would enact righteous legislation to guide and guard this state from the insanity that's going on across America. We pray, O Lord, that You remove corrupt and ungodly leaders from our state and replace them with righteous men and women who fear Your name! We confess the sins of our state, and indeed the sins of all the United States of America, and pray that You grant us forgiveness and visit Tennessee in the mightiest move of Your Spirit, to turn our state and all of America, back to You, O Lord! Revive us, and we will call upon Your name; restore us, O Lord God of hosts, cause Your face to shine, and we shall be saved! Amen and Amen!!

Pray our state will continually be fiscally sound. we must stand tall for the issues that matter the most. we must stay in line with the biblical founding principles that made and make our country the greatest country in the world.

Gayla, TN February 8, 2021, 8:35 am

Heavenly Father, According to Your Word: How blessed is the person who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But their delight is in the law of the Lord, and in Your law they meditate day and night. They will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever they do, they prospers. May it be so in the leadership of Tennessee. The wicked are not so, but they are like chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish. May the leadership of Tennessee seek You and Your ways or be removed from their positions. May Tennesseans fear You and give You glory knowing the times and the seasons that we are in. Increase Your Presence in our lives and in our state - for our good and for Your glory! In Yeshua's Name, Amen
