To the Righteous Remnant
REBUILDING THE WALL OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IN OUR NATION, STATES, AND TERRITORIES
52 Day State Prayer Focus: Day 22: Illinois, December 3, 1818
To the Remnant Rising,
Thank the Lord for His mercy and grace that He continues to pour out upon us as a nation and a people. His eyes are upon us and His ears are attentive to the cry of the righteous! Let us remain steadfast in our assignments!
“For the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His.”
(2 Chronicles 16:9; NASB)
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory
Behold the man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
“The Lord said, “Go up and down through the streets of Jerusalem. Look around and see for yourselves. Search through its public squares. See if any of you can find a single person who deals honestly and tries to be truthful. If you can, then I will not punish this city.” (Jeremiah 5:1; NET)

Father, we come into agreement with your kingdom plan and purposes for our nation and Stateof Illinois. We call Illinois into the original intent of her birthright and destiny as ordained by Almighty God. Illinois, you are the Lord’s apostolic state. You are a place of government, where plans are given. You are a prototype for what God wants to do in the rest of the nation. Illinois, may you understand your times and season. Reform is upon you in many areas…but I AM, is calling for righteous reform.
Chicago, there is innocent blood crying out from your streets. There are areas in your city that have reached their vertical limit. These are death zones above the vertical limit of endurance where the human body cannot survive for long. There are war-torn places within you where darkness rules. I have searched through your city and found a righteous remnant. I have heard the cry of the mother’s and the grandmothers and the brothers and sisters. The Blood of Christ speaks a better word. I am raising up righteous reformers in your darkest hour. I will remove the defilement from your land and break the agreement with a death culture.
Father God, we ask you to pour out your love and the Spirit of Adoption upon this city and state. Let the ungodly structures and rulers be overturned. Righteousness exalts a city, state, and nation! Chicago, State of Illinois, you are about to get a new heart and a new set of lungs. I am releasing a second wind upon you and the breath of My Spirit is going to breathe new life into you. We decree: “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry; the face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth. The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; He delivers them from all their troubles.”
Illinois, there is an apostolic prophetic army that is rising within you now. An ekklesia army to legislate heaven in your gates. We decree the gates of hell will not prevail in this state. Cities are going to be saved and transformed. There is a harvest of righteousness appointed for you Illinois.
“Demons are going to be disempowered in a new way. Breakthroughs are going to come. Deliverance is going to come. People are going to be set free. On the battlefield, there’s going to come a turning of the tide because the apostolic order goes to another level of connection… Agree with me right now. Lord, we just tear down everything that the enemy has brought and will try to bring. We not only tear down what he’s done already, we tear down what he’s trying to do. We say in the name of the Lord that there is not going to be a successful disenfranchising. There’s not going to be any disconnecting. There’s not going to be an altering of the time or the season or the decree of God. Every ministry, every church, everyone is going to be afforded the opportunity, the Lord says, to go to another level of connecting (across) denominational lines, racial lines, genders lines. I’m going to do it all, He says. I’m going to connect you at another level. Streams are going to come together.
The Lord says, The grace is coming on the place, the grace is coming on the place. The grace to come together is coming on this place. For I say you’ve been here and you’ve been there but I’m giving you the grace to come on the place and the supernatural abundance of an alignment is falling in this region. I say let it begin and watch things change, saith the Lord. “We decree there is a connecting of the Body of Christ coming in the State of Illinois, going to another level. God is snapping things into alignment. He’s healing dislocation and broken places and snapping them back. He’s mending the nets so He can bring a great harvest to the State of Illinois. The Lord says I’m going to have a net that will not fail this time. I’m going to have a net that can hold the Harvest. I’m going to have a net that won’t let one fish out. Just like the Lord, you’ll be able to say: Of those you’ve given to me, not one has been lost except the son of perdition that the scriptures might be fulfilled.I’m telling you, you’re going to go to another level of getting fish, keeping fish, mentoring fish, discipling fish because you’re going to have healthy nets, the Lord says.”
(Chuck Pierce, 50 State Tour)
Let the Word of God and the decree of the righteous come alive in this State and fulfill their assignments. Lord, we ask that you plumb line the State of Illinois and her seven mountains of society in Your righteousness. In Jesus Name, Amen.
