Confessing that they are now finished and headed for death.
Where are those who will wait in My Presence and travail for the nation until the hearts of kings are turned and influenced by My Spirit?

Therefore our speech CANNOT be exactly as the world’s. Let 100% of your energy concerning this situation and other crises in your nation be intercession and travail.
