Georgia was named for King George of England. Martin Luther King was born here. Two kings. May the King of kings reign in the hearts of men and women in this nation. Lord, show us what it takes to catalyze true hearts. When a root gets uprooted it’s often because of poor soil quality. May roots of righteousness grow strong here. May there be exposure of what is happening.
Uproot in a natural way so that what is wicked will die when exposed. Pull darkness down by the power of God. May we fight to end human trafficking, racial injustice, abortion, murder, witchcraft, and a religious spirit. There is an uneasy anticipation for what’s to come. A fogginess in people’s thinking. Grotesque creatures that intimidate others will be uprooted. May there be clarity of thought.
Uproot the bad and plant trees that bear good fruit. They will bloom and blossom like peach and pecan trees. May believers shine and bring God glory. Matt. 5:16.
South Carolina is a state of firsts. Parris Island is where Marines train and they are known to be the first to go into battle. Ready. Decided. Standing firm. Britt saw roots that created the curved bow of an old sailing ship. The bow is the part of a boat that parts the water. It leads forward.
The wide variety of plants surrounding the capitol gives a sense of mystery, a beautifully maintained wildness. Yet there also is a false glory because what shouldn’t have been honored has been.
Hear the righteous dissatisfaction. There is a deep religious spirit that ties in with racial segregation and people groups groan as they call out for freedom from oppression. They are on the edge of a true awakening to unity. Freedom is about to happen. A sifting has occurred. We need to say yes to God.
North Carolina is a place where dreams become reality. The Wright Brothers overcame the force of gravity and flew an airplane at Kill Devil Hills. They were visionaries and their big dreams were brought into practicality. Faith produces something unseen when fueled by the Son. Immovable, dauntless, unconquerable faith. The fire of sacrifice is costly and necessary. Let the fire on the altar never go out. May we be willing to pour ourselves out to promote growth for the good of others.
The capitol building in Charlotte has beautiful old windows with wavy glass. Lord, may we have clear vision that is not distorted by the past. May the light of God shine on the locked up places in our hearts.
Britt saw an old-timey tiller break through the ground and a single crop row grew and spread out across North Carolina. Intercession happening right now is preparing hearts to receive the Word. The arduous work of one benefits many others.
Virginia has a grand and beautiful bright white capitol. Modern high rises surround the capitol complex so it is hidden from view even one block away. It was a surprise how big it is. People are praying and the enemy wants to obscure what’s happening and make it hard to see. The seen and the unseen inspire hope.
This is a state of founding fathers - 8 presidents have come from Virginia. May we, as a nation, remember the former foundations and have hearts united as we pray for liberty and freedom. Men with incredible influence formed our nation. Yes, there is bad from the past but also so much good. It takes men and women engaging to see change. Let there be peace.
History was made in this amazing capitol. It’s the oldest legislative building in continuous use in the United States. George Washington and the other founding fathers worked here. Important decisions were made in those rooms. We must remember those founding principles and purposes. We must not forget them. They are the glasses on our head that we are searching for. We must come in agreement and have unity of the ages. Let righteousness ring out. The sewer was being repaired and it smelled bad as things underground were being exposed. May those things in our nation that are broken and hidden be exposed and destroyed or repaired. Britt saw Roots pulling on chains and breaking them apart.
Small yet mighty - what Delaware has done for this nation is massive. This state fought for equal representation and got it. That’s why we have a bicameral system. The power of two. Two small states stood firm.
Ideas are the smallest particle of what will come to be. Britt saw seeds produce roots. Small became big. One became many. There can be no agreement unless there are at least two people. God says if we have two or more in agreement we can have whatever we ask. Me becomes we. My faith becomes our faith.
A small regiment from Delaware had a big impact on the Revolutionary War. They were a highly trained, unified, excellent small regiment. They served so well they became George Washington’s personal guard. As a nation we must rout out what does not belong and call up spiritual soldiers. We must respond to the call. The volunteer fire department’s siren filled the air while we were praying, calling for response. We must stand together in agreement and cry out to God for mercy. We must be brave.
What a beautiful and impressive capital complex! There are massive buildings. The capitol dome is iridescent green. The ground carpeted in golden leaves.
Pennsylvania is the Keystone State. A keystone is the center stone in an arch that takes the pressure so the arch doesn’t collapse. A cornerstone is the beginning point of construction and gives stability and helps a building be plumb and square.
Britt heard the word ‘Scribe’ and thought of our nation’s founding documents that were, penned in Philadelphia, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. William Penn was the founder of Pennsylvania. A Quaker of integrity. Penn kept his word and many say that the treaty he made with the Native Americans was never broken.
God values writing things down. The values of our nation are known because men wrote their ideas. That’s why we struggle in our nation today as men and women argue about what was meant. There is monumental importance in Pennsylvania right now and has been in our nation’s history.
Jacob saw a vision of a map of Pennsylvania. There was a clash for control. The state began to shake violently.
“God is shaking Pennsylvania and it will be filled with God’s glory. Shaking will release a spring of living water and the faulty foundations that don’t support. Man-centric thinking must come down and become God-centric. Some trust in horses but we trust in God. It is an epicenter of a shift and change. Shock waves will radiate from this state and create impact.” Lord, we ask that scales fall off and blinded eyes be opened. May justice be done.
Gabby saw someone on the edge of their seat looking in anticipation to what was about to happen in the church. No more distraction. We as the church and as a nation must be a reflection of the Son. Six-year-old Kohen said, Jesus walks in the doors and the enemies walk out.
Knowledge does not equal understanding. Thomas Edison created Menlo Park in New Jersey. It was the first industrial research park in the world. He made electric light affordable and accessible to all. People must have light to see. Open our eyes to see, LORD. Give us wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and insight! Proverbs 2:3 NIV. May the Church shine her light. Draw people to discover You and to listen to You as You reveal mysteries.
Petty’s Run was a natural stream that flowed through Trenton. It was harnessed to power industry. One of the first steel mills in the US was here. Various factories were established. Indians cleaned their fish here. It was full of life and power. Then people polluted the stream and it became useless. They polluted their source. The God-provision was corrupted and then it was buried and hidden. Their blessing was contaminated. Our nation has contaminated the source of our blessing. We need purification.
The Capitol is a fallout shelter. There is toxicity because of lack of love. May they not value business over people. People are on edge. They threaten and are threatened.
There are more millionaires in New Jersey than any other state yet the state is not known for being happy or kind. There is no joy in their prosperity. They have blessing with trouble. Wealth is not an unscalable wall. God wants them to be wealthy if they will adopt his principles and not man’s.
From the kids:
6 year old: Water. Jesus can walk on the water and the devil can’t. He sinks.
4 year old: Lava - [He can walk on stones of fire.]
2 year old: Ice cream. [Jesus is sweet and refreshing.]
This capitol building is amazing! Grandeur and workmanship. A place of greatness, influence, and power. The intricacies of the building’s stonework shows attention to detail. Britt heard the word ‘Blessing’ which is defined as ‘any means of happiness, a gift, that which promotes temporal prosperity and welfare, a gift given as the means of increasing happiness, divine favor.’
NYC is the most powerful economic city on earth. Business is a blessing. New York has a great ability to influence the world. The people of New York are confident and don’t look to others for guidance. NYC was the first national capitol of the United States. New York is a foundation of our nation; there’s power to shift direction and do great things here, but the influence of the world is STRONG.
May the desire of our nation never be to be great apart from God. May we never disregard humanity and step on others to gain position. May our nation change course for righteousness and be an influence for good.
One of our students had a vision and saw the floor of a sewer. It was black and mucky with a huge black snake sliding through. Then he saw a breeding ball of vipers in shallow water. LORD, we ask that you expose the muck and wash it away with the power of your WORD and living water.
Britt saw roots holding an oval blue-green precious stone. Smooth. No facets. Emitting light. It was at ground level though originally it was like a beacon, many miles up in the air. A lampstand that was losing its position. The lampstand of our nation is blessing. If the people of our land will rise up then the light of blessing will rise up.
Ethan Allen and The Green Mountain Boys were critical to victory at the Battle of Ticonderoga. Ethan Allen was rough and undervalued because he was unconventional. He broke the norm. A small canon took the fort and shifted the tide for America in the Revolutionary War.
May our national independence and unconventional nature be pointed to righteousness and what the Lord wants in this nation. May we have unconventional hope and be a band of people who will rise up and live in righteousness.
Vermont is ranked lowest in political integrity and accountability. May we, as a nation, stand up for righteousness and not buy into the norms around us. May we be people of strong character. This was the first state to write equal rights in their constitution. Thank you, LORD, that our Constitution defends the rights of all.
Justice doesn’t exist without truth. She wears a blindfold to apply righteousness without and weighs each side evenly. May we never champion justice in a twisted manner. God determined that mercy should be stronger than justice.
Maine is a corner of our nation. May the forgotten cornerstone be found and put in its right place in righteousness and justice. There was a tree in front of the capitol that was mostly hollow yet still had leaves. Though our hearts may be hollowed out God will make sure we maintain life until we are restored. May God remove barrenness and restore fruitfulness. Another tree had gnarly and twisted branches. May God make the crooked paths straight.
Maine’s capitol building was under construction and men were working on the windows. God said, “I’m not only restoring the building but restoring vision.” May we not have small vision for this state or our nation. We can be the best and brightest for God. May our nation be a lighthouse shining His glory as a beacon of truth and righteousness. We must fight darkness and choose life. We must bless and not curse.
After the Revolutionary War, Maine was the largest lumber producer in the world. That lumber was especially used for building ships. The key to growth was shipping and naval expansion. It had to do with going. The US has made loads of mistakes but has also produced many God-ideas that we have sent to the world. Expansion of the fruit of the spirit needs to rise. We must go to this and other nations with the Truth.
Britt saw roots in a circle, facing toward each other. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace. Eph 4:3
New Hampshire has the largest democratic elected legislative body in the English-speaking world. There are 400 representatives! With that many people there is a need for high competency in unity in order to make decisions.
New Hampshire was the 9th state to ratify the US Constitution. To ratify requires agreement. May we ratify your values. May the people of New Hampshire open their arms to those who come to their state just as a kind father welcomes home a child. May a crack be mended before it becomes a big canyon. May we be men and women of courage. May our nation be in agreement about the truth.
Native Americans called this place Shawmut which means “Land with Living Fountains.” May our nation drink from the living water that Jesus offers us.
Boston. The cradle of liberty. The birthplace of ideas that formed a nation and inspired the world. Harvard, one of the top universities in the world, is here. God released wisdom and knowledge and governing principles for civil government that changed the world. John Adams was brilliant. He created a separate but equal judicial system. We are governed by law and not by the whims of men. The constitution governs and not the majority. LORD, may our nation have the framers’ wisdom and may their original ideas not go away. May we, as the church, stop following culture and allowing the spirit of secular humanism to erode God’s immovable truth.
Roger Williams founded Rhode Island and first named it Providence Plantation. Providence means the protective care of God. It was established as a place of religious freedom and persecuted people moved there from Massachusetts. Lord, may our nation remain a place of shelter and a place of religious freedom. We arrived to pray in a light snow storm. A kind guard offered to let us inside to warm up even though the capitol wasn’t open to visitors. Shelter.
The two small states of Rhode Island and Delaware stood together to demand equal representation in our government and thus our bicameral system was established. Small but with a mighty impact just as a seed produces the extraordinary.
Rhode Island had formerly been a center for slave trade, but it moved away from slavery with the advent of the development of textile mills in the Industrial Revolution. Many people went to England to learn about machines and returned to develop their own ideas here. An explosion of productivity and innovation occurred. May our nation be a place of productivity, discovery, and innovation. May we have God-inspired ideas that bring answers to problems. May we bring hope and true love. May people choose God.
One of our students saw a vision of white lilies on the building. Lilies represent purity and passion and rebirth. So fitting on a snowy day.
We feel completion and connection. Hartford has a magnificent capitol building - beautiful and full of meaning. The state tree is the gnarly oak and there is quite a story of intrigue surrounding it. Connecticut means “along the long tidal river.” Psalm 1. Lord, may our nation and church be as a tree planted by streams of water. May we produce fruit in season, have leaves that don’t wither, and whatever we do prosper.
Jonathan Edwards and his wife were from Connecticut and were instrumental in the Great Awakening. May our nation not have a religious spirit but have a true relationship with Jesus. Jesus is the Captain of the Host of Heaven. The weapons we have are not carnal but mighty to pull down strongholds. Some of the greatest weapons we have are right ideas. We need strength and security to see that righteousness and holiness are defended and upheld.
Our nation’s capital. The completion of our journey and symbolically the last paving stone under God’s feet. Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool.” Isaiah 66:1a
Washington DC is a system of beautiful buildings with Scripture and inspiring quotes adorning the walls. Men of vision and resolve fought to create a nation that would stand for righteousness. Other men fought that it wouldn’t be destroyed. There is conflict here, yet is there hope. When we heard sirens we prayed, for the America we love is under attack. As we walked around the Washington Monument we felt the strong wind of change and had to lean into it to walk forward. One of our students saw an earthquake and that our nation was about to experience a lot of shifting. There’s going to be a lot of rebuilding. Changes are coming and are here. May trees with rotten roots fall. It is time to reset.
It is decided. May we have an awakened and victorious church. May we walk in the power and anointing of the LORD. May we do well as we teach our children and our children’s children the fear of the Lord.
