Day 6: Georgia, January 9, 1788
To the Remnant Rising,
Stand up! Stand up! Stand up, righteous remnant on the promises of God spoken over this nation. Let us hold fast to His righteous decrees! Our God is faithful! He will hear the cry of His people and act on behalf of His righteousness!
“In you, O Lord, have I taken refuge; let me never be put to shame. Rescue me and deliver me in your righteousness; turn your ear to me and save me… My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long, though I know not its measure. I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, O Sovereign Lord; I will proclaim your righteousness, yours alone.”
(Psalm 71:1-2,15-16; NIV)
“Your righteousness reaches to the skies, O God, you who have done great things. Who, O God, is like you? Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once again. I will praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, O my God; I will sing praise to you with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel. My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you — I, whom you have redeemed. My tongue will tell of your righteous acts all day long, for those who wanted to harm me have been put to shame and confusion.” (Psalm 71:19-24; NIV)

In you, O Lord, we, the righteous remnant of the United States of America, have taken refuge; let us never be put to shame. Rescue our nation and deliver us in your righteousness; turn your ear to this nation of America and save us. Be our rock of refuge, to which we can always go; give the command to save us, for you are our rock and our fortress. Deliver us in Your righteousness, O God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of evil and cruel men. For you have been our hope, O Sovereign Lord, our confidence since our youth.

But as for us, your righteous remnant, our hope is in you. We stand on your word, righteousness exalts a nation. Our mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long. We will come and proclaim your mighty acts, O Sovereign Lord; We will proclaim your righteousness, yours alone. Our tongue will tell of your righteous acts all day long, for those who wanted to harm us have been put to shame and confusion. (Psalm 71) Father, we acknowledge and come into agreement with your kingdom plan and purposes for our nation and the state of Georgia. We ask that you plumb line Georgia in your righteousness. We call Georgia into the original intent of her birthright and destiny as ordained by Almighty God. The Lord declares over you, “Georgia is one of My Gates; a governmental gate”. You are a gatekeeper state authorized to open gates to the Lord and close gates to the enemy. The Lord says, “You are an open portal – a place of revelation, fresh worship and restoration; where healing of racial divisions and strife take place; where the womb will no longer be hostile to new life (both naturally and spiritually); where new ministries will not just be conceived but brought to full maturity; where sounds of worship will come forth.” Take hold of your prophetic destiny and legislate righteousness on behalf of the land. May the godly three-fold cord of wisdom, justice and moderation manifest within your borders. Georgia, you are “The Peach State”, taste and see that the Lord is good. We declare that you are reconnected to your roots bringing governmental breakthroughs that shape our nation in righteousness. Let the redemptive Sound of Heaven come forth in your land. May our King go up before you and break open the way for you Georgia. Let the Shout of the King be among you. Lord, rebuild your wall of righteousness around this nation and restore the gates of this nation and this governmental gateway state of Georgia. In Jesus Name, Amen.
