God we need to get back the days where we held you up in prayer and praised you. We need our leaders locally and nation wide to open themselves up to your ways. Lord we ask this in your son Yahshua's name and through his blood so be it.

Lord, It is your desire for this state to prosper, but there is opposition to this. We release the angels to complete their assignments to tear down the strongholds and wicked high places, to eradicate the evil plans and the sin havens in this state. We ask that you give us Godly leadership, those who love you, love your people, and that what you have provided. For those who are blinded we ask their eyes be opened and that they would seek your face and turn from their wicked ways. I ask for those who are caught up in witchcraft and control in the church that they be delivered and desire unity with you and Godly brothers and sisters. Father I thank you for all that you have given us and that you have blessed us despite our shortcomings. I thank you for your goodness and mercy over our nation and this state. I pray for our leaders that they would come to know you. You put leaders up and you take them down. You know the hearts of men. Father we want our state to be given and run by you. We want a revival here. We want you here. Have your way with this land. We pray this in the authority that you have given us through Jesus your son and the work He completed on the cross.

Dear Father...Your word says you can move the hearts of kings. Please move the hearts of those in leadership in our country and especially in New York state. People are accepting lies as truth, looking for a utopia through government intervention. Even some Christians are falling for these lies. Please speak to their hearts. Help them to see the lies for what they are. Please turn hearts back to you. Give us courage to speak out. Thank you for hearing our prayers.

May the Lord God Almighty pierce your hearts that you may realize that God is the giver of life!!! He alone is the ONE who gives life and takes it away! May you truly consider how much God grieves when life is being taken by the hands of men. May you consider your own life and the lives of your family members... aren't you grateful that they are here.... aren't you thankful that you have children and grandchildren? Imagine for a moment, if they decided to terminate their pregnancies... who would remain in your family line to enjoy your life with? How can life (which is such a beautiful gift from our Creator) be so meaningless? How do we know if we have not terminated great leaders, entrepeneurs, scientists, doctors and alike because this precious innocent life was terminated? How can people not see the sanctity of Life and how truly priceless it is? I pray that the Lord will speak to your very heart and soul... and that YOU, our leaders, would take a firm stand for THE SANCTITY OF LIFE!!!!

Praying in agreement with Wanda Alger "Directing the Spiritual Traffic" and covering every ballot, every ballot processing centers and every state, all for God's glory. And He awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” (Mark 4:39-40) We raise our voices above the demonic storms and winds of witchcraft over this nation and say, “Peace, Be Still!” We declare the supremacy of the One who created the winds and the waves and reigns forevermore as the Prince of Peace. Knowing their power is beneath us, we speak in faith to the storms and declare that we will not be hindered in getting to the other side of our victory! We declare calm and stillness over the waves as the GOD OF PEACE CRUSHES satan beneath our feet.

By myself I have sworn, my mouth has uttered in all integrity a word that will not be revoked: BEFORE ME EVERY KNEEE WILL BOW; BY ME EVERY TONGUE WILL SWEAR. IS 45:23 Father we ask that more Christians would run and win offices in New York. We pray for righteous judges and remember that you alone are a righteous judge. Give them your wisdom to judge. We pray for the senators of New York to vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett. We pray for you to abolish abortion and ask for forgiveness for turning the 9/11 monument, the place you marked as a judgment over our nation as a shrine to abortion. We ask for your holy reversal over the state of New York. Please don't let the people parish. Open the mouths of your followers and share the truth to their friends and family.

Father of creation, we praise you for guiding us toward truth. You are Holy and Righteous, Faithful and Trustworthy. We know there is nothing impossible for You. We can't survive the onslaught of spiritual darkness and the evil of the unseen world that has revealed itself in the visible world without You. In the name and power of Jesus who won the battle on the cross and rose from the grave and now lives at Your right hand, we ask for Your help. We stand in the gap praying for the people of NEW YORK and their leaders. Have mercy on them, O God, according to Your loving kindness; according to Your great compassion, blot out their transgressions. Wash them clean of their iniquity and cleanse them of their sin. For they know their transgressions and their sin is always before them. Against You, and You alone have they sinned and done what is evil in Your sight, ... (Psalm 51) We bind tyranny and terrorism, lawlessness and anarchy, sedition and treason, intimidation and oppression, rebellion and chaos, disorder and bedlam in the name of King Jesus. We loose freedom, law and order, righteousness, fairness, justice, respect, kindness, joy, peace, decency, understanding, wisdom, longsuffering, and love over NEW YORK We pray as this force of darkness diminishes that You will fill the void with Your Kingdom of love and unity. We declare Your plan and purpose over NEW YORK and release faith over every city, town, village and in every church, school, business, and home. We declare that every heart would break for what breaks Your heart and every person would fall to their knees and repent for their lack of action regarding Your plan. Hear our cry O Lord and attend unto our prayer for we cry out to You regarding the lies that have been poured out over our world like glue. These lies have blinded and numbed Your people to the truth and have brought fear and confusion. We ask for Your intervention so that TRUTH would be revealed. (Proverbs 12:22) We ask that Your children awaken to their responsibilities, and that You grant wisdom to each of Your children as they wake to Your calling. I submit these requests in the name of Jesus Christ, Your son and our Lord! Amen

Father of Justice and Mercy, I pray for New York. I can't help thinking of David Wilkerson's June 13,1994 prophecy while praying for New York. Father, if ever this was the time he spoke about, I can't imagine any time worse. I pray for the ministers to speak out against lawlessness, against abortion, homosexuality, drugs, alcohol and hate of one's brother. I thought we had finally united as one people. I thought we judged people by the content of their character rather than their skin, religion, ideology, status. May You root out all the evil in the government, the educational system, but especially the churches. Remove and replace all who do not stand for Truth. Father greed has captured the hearts of so many. Please heal us, turn us around, renew our faith in You. In Jesus mighty name. Amen

Father God, thank you for the opportunity to pray for NEW YORK and its Senators, Representative, Governor and his administration. We pray that all these people in government to draw close to You God. To know You. Because Proverbs 9:10 said: "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding." The duties of the Democratic Party are to support minority, women's right, environment, progressive reforms. However, they have forgotten how to play fair. They have put their agenda before PEOPLE. They do whatever it takes to advance their agenda including supporting BLM, ANTIFA etc of Marxism teaching. Since President Trump won the election, the Democratic Party have not been supportive to build America and its people . Their insubordination divide this country. Therefore Father, if You will, please allow Hawaii to be red state with conservatives value whose allegiance is to God, put American (People) first then do the Constitution. Father God, please rewrite the Democratic Party agenda / duty to include putting American people FIRST. Though I applauded their unity among the party. I pray that the Republican Party will be as united as them. Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." In Jesus' Name, I pray that NEW YORK will be a RED STATE. So that Republican Party can to their job to protect the right of the people as it is intended when it was created in 1854. Father God please raise up Christian men and women to be like Daniel who dare to stand for what is right to REPLACE Senators, Representative, Governor and his administrations. These Christian men and women will have no corruption in them because they are trustworthy, not corrupt, nor negligent. They will not bow before any the idol in the form of money, power, fear and influence. They will stand firm and speak the truth in love. They are the righteous whose allegiance only to KING JESUS. Just as Jesus spoke to the nonproducing fig tree and it dried up from the roots, we speak to the resources of those who work evil in our government and command their money, communication, and alliances to dry up from the roots. In Jesus' name, please clean up corruptions in every level of the government. Thank You Father for leading the election of 2016. We ask you again Father that You put Your hands in this 2020 election so that elections to be fair, honest and without corruption. Father, please mobilize the Body of Christ from every corner of NEW YORK to vote in person this Nov. 2020, to vote for President Trump so that he will be given a landslide winning and bless P Trump with all republicans conservatives administrations who will put You first and always pray for Your guidance to run this country to go back to the beginning when the founder of America made a covenant with You. I pray that the Body of Christ will exercise their right to be SALT and LIGHT of the world and be involve, more engage in government not only electing but working in the government to ignite America under God. May the grace of the LORD Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all from today onward. Hear our cry, O Lord, and attend unto our prayers as we pray for turnaround in America, ONE state at a time. In Jesus' name we thank You. Amen.
