“Mercy Will Fall Like a Heavy Rain Upon America” Kathi Pelton

As a believer in Yeshua, I prayer continually for my nation— for God to shed His light upon us and turn our people (citizens) back to Him.

Tomorrow is the 4th of July, which is America’s Independence Day. I feel the echo of the prayers that have been prayed for hundreds of years— prayers prayed out of covenantal promises and commitments that we made with God— and He has made with our forefathers.

I heard the Spirit saying, “You are not praying ‘lone prayers’ but you are joining with the prayers of those who have gone before you. I am the God of Deuteronomy 7:9. I am the faithful One who keeps covenant and releases mercy upon your nation. I have heard the continuous prayers of thousands and thousands who have remained faithful to Me. My faithfulness will never end— mercy will fall like a heavy rain upon America.”

“Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;” Deuteronomy 7:9 

As you pray today, whether it’s for America, Israel or any other nation, know that you are adding your prayers to the prayers of “a thousand generations” and that the Lord has kept His covenant with those who have loved Him and kept His commandments. What you release in prayer has far more power and authority upon them than anything the world is releasing. Why? Because you are praying from the position of covenant. You are releasing prayers backed by a spiritually legal covenant that cannot be broken. On the other hand, the enemy is a liar and cannot act within covenant because he is not faithful nor trustworthy— all that he does is illegal. Even his claim over the world and God’s creation is illegal and temporal. It will not last because the enemy cannot keep covenant.

Our prayers and petitions go back to the covenants God made with Abraham, Moses and David.

The words and covenants made with them echo through time and history to where we stand today. Our prayers are joined with the prayers of a thousand generations of those who loved God and kept His commandments.

Today we stand in the gap for our nations and together, as His people, we bring forth our prayers that have the backing of legal covenants that remain in place today. Such as the Davidic covenant where God promises a descendant of David to reign on the throne over the people of God. Jesus fulfilled this covenant and reigns today over the people of God and makes intercession for us. This is our authority and our confident hope (faith) that we do not pray in vain as the enemy would like many to believe.

The definition of spiritual covenant is to enter into an agreement which brings about a relationship of commitment between God and his people. A marital covenant between two believers is a covenant made with God at the center; this means that God pledges to help them hold the covenant together, in every circumstance whether good or bad. This is why we do not give up on our nations or our marriages in bad times or even amid betrayal. God has pledged to help us uphold our covenants and commitments no matter what.

Our nations have walked away from God but it is His covenant with His people that hold them together and give us hope.

Therefore we pray! We pray with the authority and confidence that comes from the covenants kept by God for a thousand generations. He remains faithful to them and continually extends mercy— compassion and forgiveness…when we deserve punishment.

Revive us again and bring freedom from deception and oppression— reveal the light of your truth and ways for all to see. Make us “One nation under God!”
