Alveda King Calls for Prayer This Election Weekend

Where are God's appointed spiritual voices today—aside from urging Christians to vote and making the King Cyrus observations related to the upcoming election—where are we who are called to be today's Daniels, Esthers, Nehemiahs and Ezras?

Are we praying, fasting, rebuilding and evangelizing?

We urgently need to transcend the political frequency where we are praying for specific candidates to be elected or not elected. While this is part of the scenario, that's just the tip of the iceberg. We are facing spiritual corruption at the highest levels.

READ EPHESIANS 6, PLEASE. PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS. BIND THE DEVIL. LOOSE GOD'S HIGH PRAISE!

This weekend lead or join an election prayer movement. There are several already in motion.

This scourge of evil we are facing is not new. Daniel was in office the first year of King Cyrus' reign. Daniel and Esther fasted and prayed. Ezra and Nehemiah rebuilt the wall. It all goes together!

Jezebel and Ahab are breathing fire in this election. Not gender specific in humans. Fasting and praying. Highest form of warfare is breakthrough praise that God inhabits and worship in spirit and truth attained as we fast and pray.

"...the battle is a spiritual battle...the battle is not against flesh and blood...Jezebel is not a person...Jezebel is a spirit...the spirit of Jezebel wants this nation...the nations...even though confronted, remember this spirit resists, accuses, controls, twists, manipulates, intimidates, seduces, destroys....

Remember this...this spirit will come out by prayer and fasting, declare My Word, My authority...stand together, pray, fast...church, hear Me...My people...you can do this... ..."who is on My side?

I know all the things you do. I have seen your love, your faith, your service and your patient endurance. And I can see your constant improvement in all these things. But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet—to lead my servants astray. She teaches them to commit sexual sin and to eat food offered to idols. I gave her time to repent, but she does not want to turn away from her immorality (Rev. 2:19).

When Jehu came to Jezreel, Jezebel heard about it, so she painted her eyes, adorned her head and looked down from the window. As Jehu entered the gate, she said, "Do you come in peace, Zimri, killer of your master?" He looked up toward the window and said, "Who is on my side? Who?" Two or three eunuchs looked down at him, and he said, "Throw her down!" (2 Kings 9:30-33).
