From American city to city, Dutch Sheets and the passionate intercessors who join him are waging war on evil. He's traveling to major cities around the country to lead prayer and declare for thousands who are either gathering at the host churches or livestreaming the events on YouTube and Facebook Live.
"God's ekklesia is realizing who they are and raising up a great surge of prayer to turn this nation around," Sheets said.
The spiritual warfare comes to a crescendo at 7 p.m. tonight, Dec. 1, at Covenant Church of Pittsburgh. Joining the event is free, but registration is required.
"It's not over, and God is not late," Sheets said on his website, where the decree being proclaimed by thousands of charismatic believers is posted. In a tweet today, Sheets said:
Join me each day as we pray for our nation until the election crisis has resolved. I'll be reading the daily Give Him 15, making comments, and then we will pray together. Let's Appeal to Heaven for America. Download the free Give Him 15 app.— dutchsheets (@dutchsheets) December 1, 2020
How It Began
The battle against Operation Valkyrie came out of two prophetic dreams.
On Sept. 9, 2020, prophetic minister Clay Nash, who serves on the team of Sheets' Network Ekklesia International, received a dream regarding Cape Henry, Virginia. Sheets took a team there a few weeks later to pray, as the dream instructed. A portion of the dream was for later:
"A clear strategy will be revealed for a prayer initiative, beginning with the first state to form our nation, to the last one," according to a detailed description of the dream.
"I have been waiting to receive this strategy for 2 1/2 months. When the strategy arrived, it too was given to me in a dream," Sheets said. The dream came on Nov. 28 and showed Independence Hall and the large clock tower located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
"In the dream, an angel came and stood on top of the clock tower and shouted, 'When the clock strikes 3 a.m., Valkyrie will fall and will not sing, if the sons of the kingdom will pray!'" Sheets said. "I then saw fervent prayer taking place in the night and through the night, and it caused the witchcraft and curse to bounce back to the sender!"
Also in the dream, another group of warriors awakened, clothed in battle array. They were surrounded and led by a host of angels. One of the angels declared repeatedly, "The commander's judgments are supreme!" This energized the warriors, and they joined in with the declaration.
At the end of the dream, the scales of justice tipped and became perfectly balanced.
The dreams are the basis for the declaration of each of the prayer meetings that have included 2020 election battleground states. The empowered prayer initiative started in Washington, D.C., and has continued in states such as Arizona, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, Nevada, New Mexico and Pennsylvania.
One Twitter follower posted about a dream he had that related both to Sheets' present and past prayer initiatives:
A few weeks ago, I had a dream of 3 Giants blocking my way. The next morning I found these two things in an old backpack.

According to Sheets' dream, Operation Valkyrie will fall at 3 a.m. if the sons of the kingdom pray, prompting Sheets' travels and the streaming prayer groups that have followed the Nov. 3 election and its pending outcome. A schedule to pray/decree the three-minute declaration has been set up to have constant prayer from midnight tonight to 3 a.m. tomorrow, Dec. 3—when Valkyrie will be defeated.
Conservative commentator and radio host Eric Metaxas tweeted out his support for the initiative, asking followers, "Will you pray for three minutes after midnight?"
