“But you need to be aware that in the final days the culture of society will become extremely fierce and difficult for the people of God. People will be self-centered lovers of themselves and obsessed with money. They will boast of great things as they strut around in their arrogant pride and mock all that is right. They will ignore their own families. They will be ungrateful and ungodly. They will become addicted to hateful and malicious slander. Slaves to their desires, they will be ferocious, belligerent haters of what is good and right. With brutal treachery, they will act without restraint, bigoted and wrapped in clouds of their conceit. They will find their delight in the pleasures of this world more than the pleasures of the loving God. They may pretend to have a respect for God, but in reality they want nothing to do with God’s power. Stay away from people like these!” (2 Timothy 3:1-5, The Passion Translation)
The Kavanaugh Hearings
Welcome to much of today’s America.
A generation of Americans has given itself to erroneous and destructive beliefs: anti-biblical thinking; humanism (humans are their own god); secularism (the view that education and civil policy should be conducted without a religious element); and death (abortion). As a result, we are now ruled by the spirit that produced these beliefs. The reality of this was on full display at the confirmation hearing of Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court. I was there, along with 50-60 other intercessors, to pray for God’s will to be accomplished. The level of deceit, lies, slander, and arrogant pride was shocking, displayed not only by the protesters, but also by opposing Senators. I left D.C. with several significant thoughts, which I believe are worth sharing.
First, the level of spiritual warfare was extraordinary. Never have I been more convinced that a war of historical proportions is underway for the soul of our nation, a war that will have worldwide implications. Like Israel, America’s role on the earth is extremely significant. Israel was chosen to bring forth the Messiah, the Savior of the world; America was chosen to be the foremost messenger of this “good news.” Understanding this, there is little wonder that such an intense spiritual war for our destiny is occurring.
At the Kavanaugh hearings, I was also amazed by the level of viciousness coming from “the left.” Some of them seem to have lost all decency—their liberal agenda is all that matters. This segment of America’s leaders is determined to maintain control over our nation—truth, honor, integrity, civility, morality, and the lives of babies be damned. As our opening passage states, they have “become addicted to hateful and malicious slander…ferocious, belligerent haters of what is good and right…with brutal treachery…” Do not be deceived, they despise what we stand for and will not relent in their opposition. To these elitists, we really are “deplorables.” And I assure you, this war is winner take all.
Thirdly, the emphasis on abortion coming from those on the left was enlightening. I expected the subject to come up, but it became obvious early on that this issue was their paramount concern. Overwhelmingly so. The right to abort babies was mentioned or alluded to by the Democrats ten to one over any other subject. It is unfathomable to me that we have come to a point in America’s history where the number one goal and concern of half her leadership—and perhaps half of her population—is the right to abort babies. Sadly, however, it has come to this. Clearly, this is demonic. The resulting bloodshed of 60 million innocent babies has caused our land to become defiled. This, in turn, has allowed a spirit of violence and death to rule over us (refer to Psalm 106:38; Isaiah 59:7).
Though this is America’s true condition, it does not have to be the final word. A turnaround has begun and if the praying church continues its appeal to heaven, the Lord, who delights in mercy, will save us (Micah 7:18-19). I believe America is about to experience the greatest revival and restoration in her history…again, if we continue to pray.
One of the keys to this restoration, however, is the transformation of our judicial branch of government. The left knows this, which is why their vicious and unprincipled attack of Justice Kavanaugh is unrelenting. These efforts are an attempt to delay the confirmation vote until after the mid-terms, in hopes that through these elections, they will regain control of Congress. This would allow them to oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination indefinitely, as well as any other pro-life, constitutionalist nominee President Trump would appoint. If this scenario occurs, they have threatened to continue this delay for as long as two years, in hopes that in 2020 a pro-choice president could be elected, allowing them to maintain control of the Supreme Court.
Regarding the recent allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, no compassionate person would ever belittle the pain and trauma of a person who has suffered a sexual assault. But whatever occurred to his accuser, I don’t believe it was perpetuated by Judge Kavanaugh. I believe he is an honorable man and a competent judge. More importantly, I am 1000% certain that neither guilt nor innocence can ever be proven in this case. I am also certain that, in such a situation, it is completely inappropriate for a person’s reputation, family, and career to be destroyed. This unacceptable treatment of him contradicts every tenet of law and justice America was built on. And the manner in which this accusation has been handled by the left makes clear that their actions are nothing but a Democrat smear campaign. Please pray against these attacks and for evil to be exposed; pray also for Judge Kavanaugh’s family and for his confirmation. The vote for whether or not to confirm him will probably take place the middle of this week.
Also, ask God to give us the breakthrough in the Supreme Court we have been requesting for decades—a majority of Justices who are Constitutionalists, literalists (meaning they believe the Constitution is to be taken literally, exactly as it is written) and who are pro-life. Let’s also boldly ask Him for another vacancy on the Court soon – I feel strongly in my spirit another is coming quickly. We should be offensive in our prayers, not just defensive and reactionary.
Please pray regarding the midterm elections occurring on November 6. I have never allowed myself to be overtaken by a political spirit; for me, elections are never about Republican or Democrat. They should, at least in part, be decided based on: God’s will and destiny for America; righteousness; life for the babies; morality; and the eternal souls of human beings. Having said that, however, the Democratic party has strayed far from these ideals. And they actually booed a motion to include God in their platform at the Democratic National convention in 2012. I pray for their salvation, but I cannot support their current policies.
The great turnaround I mentioned above has truly begun in this nation. But if the far-left regains control of Congress this will be interrupted. We simply cannot allow this to occur. Pray for a supernatural, powerful and merciful intervention by God in these elections. I don’t pretend to know what that looks like or how He might do it. But I know God can do something that would turn the tide. Let’s ask Him to do just that.
Pray fervently… faithfully… daily…boldly. Ask Holy Spirit for His mercy to our nation. Appeal to Him for His assistance to us in our attempt to turn America. Petition Him for the assistance of angels. Pray that evil will not prevail. Ask Holy Spirit to confuse and thwart the plans of those who oppose Him. Pray for President Trump and other leaders in our nation who are standing for life and for America’s God-given destiny. President Trump, though imperfect, is doing a good job. Make no mistake about it, the vile hatred of him by the left is not because of his immoral past. Hollywood—the heroes and partners of those on the left—glorifies immoral lifestyles on a daily basis. They hate President Trump because he is helping turn around the antichrist agenda they love, and because he is halting their transformation of America into something other than what was intended by God and our Founders.
John Quincy Adams, son of John Adams and America’s 6th president stated, “The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.” So much for our Founders not wanting God involved in our nation and its government! Contend with me for this reality to be restored and continue into our future.
In our war for America’s recovery, we have come to our Saratoga, our Omaha Beach. We will either persevere in this battle and, with God’s help, win; or we will grow weary and lose. There is no middle ground. I am convinced that we, the praying church, will continue to fight and will win.
America’s destiny and the cause of Christ is at stake!
My hope and prayer is that those Folks on the sidelines will awaken and join the huddle. I am thankful that at least one Church in Las Cruces has opened its doors for daily prayer and for the few that gather to pray during the week.
Father God your people are standing in the gap for justice calling on you for forgiveness for waiting so long to intercede for your word to go forth. the enemy is pulling out every bit of scum from the pit to blind and distort the hearts and minds of the deceived. The righteous shall be delivered and bring forth your will here on earth as you have in heaven. The work is not finished we have much yet to do souls are standing in the balance of heaven or hell. Families to be delivered for your glory.
I will pray more than I have been for this country,
Standing in prayer and In agreement with your petitions for this beloved nation. In Jesus ‘name!
I am praying at 130am each morning for our nation. I stand firm!
Thank you for this call to prayer, Dutch. I have been praying, but you help me to better focus my prayers….I have been praying, will continue, and will be fasting, too…
I couldn’t sleep last night and grabbed my phone and read the article by Dutch Sheets.
It was excellent and stirring. I began to pray as he ask. Then the Holy Spirit began to joyfully show me a word given to me inthe 1990’s. I had not understood it fully
But the Holy Spirit took me to 2Chronicles 20 and highlight in my mind scriptures. The principles are there of praise and worship.
The goals of humbling our hearts and crying out to God. “We don’t know what to do but our eyes are upon you. “. He surely wants and needs to be our focus and vision our refuge and hope. There was fasting involved as well. So I am beginning today.
The word of the Lord to me in an extraordinary Time was about raising up and training the Army of the Lordin worship
Over almost a year of battle the teaching videos are done. The teaching syllabus was written in 1996.
I was so touched by Dutch’s message I woke my husband up in the middle of the night and we prayed trying to follow the guidelines.
I read Dutch’s book about a closer walk into intimacy with God.
I told everyone about that book and bought copies to give out. I have not really followed His ministry per say except through Aglow
I wish I could go to the national conference inspokane but my husband has been in the hospital withslmething like a stroke and I had to cancel.
Lord bless your ministry and continued boldness for the Lord !
My heart burns for this country to God again
Joining you in prayer.
We will pray with you daily!
We would like to take churches in our area information about Give Him Fifteen in order to make local pastors aware that there is a concerted prayer effort for our nation.
Do you have any kind of packet that we could get to hand the ministers?
Or cards we could have reprinted for them to hand out?
I am so much in agreement with this very timely word. It is indeed a wake up call.
Welcome to Psalm 2 Live!
Read Psalm 2. There is a promise. There is a strategy. There is a Hope.
Amazing observation of today’s society.
May God save us all.
Amen! May our God be glorified in our unwavering prayer war! What you have written here is TRUTH. God loves truth; and Satan is the king of lies. May all people have discernment as they see our world in these days. Oh, America, weakest thou up! #toGodbetheglory
Thank you for your first hand observations from the hearings in D.C. ! A member of our church, Cordia (33:3 Church in Lexington, KY) was there praying with you all, but I haven’t heard her personal feedback and observations. I’m appreciative of your comments, because the very things you spoke of have been the same things stirring in my spirit for several weeks.
We, who could not be there personally, are thankful for your, and other leaders encouragement, wisdom, and targeted prayer guidance for our joint intercession. Praying for the Holy Spirit to arouse His church in our land.
Shoulder to shoulder,
We are praying daily for our country, our President, Vice President and all those who are in Washington standing for righteousness. We pray for GOD to expose the darkness and bring justice to those who are being put down. We
decree a turnaround for our nation and the people of America. We pray Lord, let your will be down on earth as it is in Heaven.
We are also praying for those with blinded eyes, deaf ears, and hardened hearts that they would be saved.
We are continually praying that goodness and righteousness will prevail and the forces of evil be exposed and brought down. May Brett Kavenaugh
be exonerated and his morality shine like the stars!
We are continually praying that goodness and righteousness will prevail and the forces of evil be exposed and brought down.
The LORD spoke to me that we should fast from sundown to sunrise for 50 days up until the election on November 6th. So I sent out on our Facebook page and text messages for this call to fast. The fast began Tuesday September 18th. I did not know that that was the beginning of Yom Kippur. I felt this was a confirmation of what the Lord wanted us to do. We’ve gotten a very strong response to this call to fast. Praying that the Lord’s Kingdom will come and His will will be done on Earth as it is in heaven.
Ephesians 6:12: spiritual wickedness in HIGH places. 2 Corinthians 10:5: casting down HIGH thing. Romans 8:39: nor HEIGHT nor depth.
All these high things are seats of authority. All the binding, cursing, and declaring who we are in Christ is useless if it comes from our own efforts or understanding.
Psalm 149 gives an unbeatable battle plan:
High praises: they carry us to the spiritual realm. Flesh can’t combat evil spirits and win.
Two-edged sword: God’s word.
With praise, worship, joy, and song we can:
Bind their kings/with chains/iron fetters.
Execute on them the judgment written.
Psalm 27:6: I will offer sacrifices of joy: the Hebrew word for joy also translates BATTLE CRY!
We must be in the Spirit to overcome a spiritual war and win.
This is an articulate and undeniably accurate description of our current state of the union. Be assured that we too, will be fasting and praying for God to have mercy, for believers to repent of apathy, and for revival to spread.
Yes. We are praying and need to step it up. Thank you for this artcle.
Well written…only wish I had this sooner to forward to others before Thursday’s disgusting meeting.
Thank you, thank you!!!!
May our country and the world experience a GREAT REVIVAL! We must pray fervently for repentance and turn our hearts toward God, our Creator. Our future depends on this!!
Dutch, I encourage you to continue to Use the platform God has given you to share the great insight and truth with His people. Articles like these are vital to help awaken an Army of believers to Stand up and be girded with the truth.
Thank you for helping us to be informed and to be discerning In this crucial time that our Nation is in.
I am making copies of the prophetic articles like yours and Christy Johnson and Jonnie Enlow about the Mid term elections and using them for the next 40 days to pray in agreement for a great Win for our nation. As America goes so go the other NATIONS. WE MUST win in America First.
Praying II Timothy 3:9
For they will not make further progress, for their folly will be obvious to all.
My spirit resonates with every word of this, and have been similarly impressed to pray along these lines. This is much more than what meets the eye. Let’s pray church, for God’s glory to be revealed and His perfect plans to be accomplished, both here in America and around the world.
That the nations may worship~
Pastor of Worship & Strategic Ministries

Thank you for being there along with others to intercede during the 30+ hours of testimony. Thank you for sharing ideas on how to pray for the situation in our nation. My God continue to bless you.
I am praying!! Thank you for this report, sad and depressing as I’m is. . However, your report has reminded me to not only pray for these things daily, but even hourly, especially as Judge Kavanaugh is in the battle of his life!
Great article – we are on track with the Holy Spirit as you wrote my heart — thankyou
“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.” James 1:2-3 “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you;” I Pet 4:12
Amen. So well stated.
I agree and am interceding for revival and victory over evil in all areas.
Thank you. I agree wholeheartedly and have been in this spiritual warfare for a lifetime.
Thank you, dear brother.
I am praying. Thank you for this letter.
Thank you for your stand for the Church and the American people. I remember in Dallas at the FMCI pastor conference in 2008. You spoke that night your eyes were swollen and
puffy you gave the greatest rebuke that I never forgot. With 79% of the church voting
For Obama your comment was something like “people you can’t imagine what has happened ” now we know the results.
ABSOLUTELY STANDING PRAYING BELIEVING GOD TO HAVE HIS WAY AS WE PRAY
I am in agreement with you and will be praying for GOD divine intervention on behalf of judge Kavanaugh and America.
We whole down heartidly agree and will and do pray that the truth will prevail. We are tired of the lefts lying, cheating, covering up and putting America, Her people and God last.
I did hear on the news that there is a possibility that both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh could be correct. That Dr. Ford in her confusion picked the wrong man.
We will continue to pray and pass this message around.
Please add me Gloria Dara Williams to your email list. firstname.lastname@example.org
Is there a call to fast and pray? the body as a whole needs to pray.
This is worded so well. I totally agree and will pray in agreement with you. Only God can save our land and only we can repent and intercede for our land. The enemy is angry and is fighting like never before but God is always victorious when His people pray and repent.
Yes and praying for another great awakening or even more
Miraculous way.. may HIS people continue to yearn for this
I used to pray as an intercession for our city ,state and country.
I am feeling compelled to once again pray pray pray for our country. At times I have felt fear when seeing all that’s going on in America. I am surprised about all the info coming out reguarding the Clinton’s. However I know that God is moving across the world and the world is crying out. I believe the Lord showed me that conviction defeats fear. I know that our president was a man chosen by the Lord. He truly is a David against Goliath.
God bless you Dutch Sheets.
I believe that our nation is not just battling for right and wrong, but the principles are being put on trial, and the war is not just in the government, but spiritual wickedness in heavenly places are needing to be torn down we need to bind them all and tear down their power over the nation like all the idols to bail were torn down, we have to tear down the spiritual idols we have allowed to exist through our political parties and all the wrong we allowed by kicking God out of the country
Please stop referring to their movement as pro choice; they are pro murder. God is pro life. Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Agreeing in prayer in Jesus’ name.
AMEN, AMEN,AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MORE PRAYER, AND MORE PRAYER ITS TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Praying for God’s intervention!!!
This is an excellent prayer and wonderfully spoken. Praying.
Excellent words. Would love to partner with DSM in any capacity possible.
Thank you, Dutch.
Let us give ourselves to humble, earnest prayer on behalf a nation.
God bless you. God bless America.
Thank you for speaking up! Many pastors are afraid, blind and even think we shouldn’t be involved in any this. But the word saids it if we don’t the stones will. May our Lord continue to bless you.
So true, I will be prYing
Thanks for your words and advise.
What a powerful tool this blog is to us who are praying. We can pray powerfully using every single sentence that is in this note and the violent spiritually speaking, shall take it by force. We will operate in The things of God for his kingdom on earth to be manifested. Thank you so much Dutch Sheets for all your work, leader ship and humility, excellence of spirit and callings.
I am in agreement, praying for our country to return to the Lord Jesus Christ and for righteous judges!
Praying woth my prayer group
Thank you Dutch! I couldn’t agree more!
I praise God that women are speaking up to what has been done to them by the men who have taken up leading roles in society. I praise Him that light is exposing darkness in these days. I am praying for the thwarting of demons sent out to perform Satan’s will by the soulish prayers of God’s people. May the will of God be done and nothing more. Also, the church shouldn’t be trying to rule people’s lives through the government. We should be lights in this world through love for one another, peacemaking and the Spirit of Christ. I don’t buy that America was chosen for the gospel. All the peoples of the world have this blessing and call through the gospel. And I will bring up abortion here too. Even in countries where it is illegal, women still find a way to do it, and many of them die in the process. We shouldn’t take away the only healthy way for them to have this procedure done if that be their choice. And it always will be their choice. The way that you are going with all this Dutch seems to stray further and further from the life Christ brought us and the example he gave through service and sacrifice. My mother and I pray for you. I look for the time when God brings all of these things to light.
Thank you for sending out this call to prayer for our leaders and our nation! We must put on the whole armor of God and keep standing on our places against spiritual forces in high places that continue to come against God’s people and His will for our nation! I pray God will raise up His army of prayer warriors in this critical time!
Victory in Christ!
Thanks for your leadership in prayer, Dutch that has resulted in one more battle being won.
However this spiritual battle must go on. I come from India, where the law abolishing dowry was introduced in 1961. However, no one abides by it, and this dowry greed culture has attributed to the abortion of millions of baby girls, resulting in the abuse of remaining girls due to the massive imbalance in male/female population.
Lets continue to pray for the turnaround of the hearts and minds of mankind. Because, changing laws don’t solve the underlying problem.
Lets fight for 7.7 billion souls in America and the world. Christ is victorious. Christ redeem us. Thank you Jesus for victory in the battle to appoint Judge Kavanaugh. Thanks again Dutch for your ministry.
Isaiah 45:2 “I will go before you and level the mountains; Bronze Doors I will shatter, iron bars I will snap”
Supreme Court Bronze Doors
Exactly true and the best discriprion I have read Ihave been and will continue to pray as suggested for our Christian based country and its leadership!
Praise God for all you have done for the Kingdom Of God
I am an intercessor. I along with 6 other women in our small Southern Baptist Church in eastern Kentucky are interceding weekly for the confirmation of Judge Kavanagh and for God to forgive our nation for all the murdered babies. We are standing in the gap for a revival that begins in each of us and goes across our nation and yes, even the world. Thank you for all you do!

I love and honor you dear brother. I am in agreement with most of your comments here and I am praying for this nation. I fully believe this country belongs to the Lord! And He is getting it back.
None of us are perfect . I am willing to say boldly that I believe President Trump is doing an excellent job, is God’s chosen vessel , and he will have an encounter with the Lord that will bring the full revelation for transformation which is the only hope and power for any of us to experience true transformation!
God bless you abundantly !!! God bless His body and may God bless the USA!
United we stand.

Thank you for your obedience,i stand in agreement in Jesus name,we have the victory
This is awesome and I am praying daily!!!
Thanks for this glorious article. One other thing is that nearly all digital cameras can come equipped with the zoom lens that permits more or less of any scene to generally be included by means of ‘zooming’ in and out. All these changes in focus length will be reflected while in the viewfinder and on significant display screen right on the back of the actual camera.
