Dear Lord - In whose name I pray, I pray for the Bristol area and pray that Your Holy Spirit will fall on the believing community, to instill Godliness and integrity in bearing witness to the truth of the gospel. May the preaching of the word be with signs, wonders and miracles, so that Your name will be made known and the work of the enemy be stopped. In the all powerful name of Jesus. Amen.

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 ask You to send a mighty outpouring of Your Holy Spirit with awakening in Nashville and to the entire state of TN.

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.

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

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.

Father God, thank you for the opportunity to pray for TENNESSEE 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." 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, Father, if You will, please keep TENNESSEE a red state with conservatives value whose allegiance is to God, put American (People) first then do the Constitution. So that Republican Party can do their job to protect the right of the people as it is intended when it was created in 1854. I pray that the Republican Party will be as united as the Democratic Party. Father God please raise up Christian men and women to be like Daniel who dare to stand for what is right, who 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. 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 TENNESSEE 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. The Body of Christ / The Church draw close to God, pray without ceasing, always wearing the Armor of God, always ready to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Body of Christ will live a family live that is desirable and envied by others so that they want to know more about Jesus. I pray that America will always respect the Bill of Right that was written by Thomas Jefferson on January 1, 1801 - a wall of separation from there being a state-church - This is what many whom fled from England experienced; where the church and state were one and the same. He was concerned that the government would fund religion as they did in England and that religious worship at a state-church would be deemed compulsory. As In his memoirs, he wanted to make sure that the state would not impose their own ideology or theology upon all churches. Father God, the Supreme Court Justices are NOT to be lifetime justices. They can be removed if their character, actions, etc. are deemed unmoral. They cannot be judicial activists. They are not to make laws as their responsibility is only to GIVE AN OPINION or TO INTERPRET THE LAW. Remove those from the bench who will refuse Christ and will always walk away from You and Your precepts. I pray for all the current justices to draw near to You so that they can do the jobs that they signed up to do. Please save this honorable court. Please restore the checks and balances on each branches’ power. As of late, the Legislative branch has abdicated its powers to both the executive branch and the judicial branch. We sorely need our true representation restored, since we are losing even the idea of ‘no legislation without representation’ and ‘no taxation without representation’. Father, restore just government to all branches, in Jesus name. 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.
