First, we bow before You LORD to thank You for all that You have done for our nation and the state of Idaho. We praise and worship Your Holy name each day with the desire to know you more. We long to be the fulfillment of Your heart for the state of Idaho, so that our Savior, LORD and King receive the full measure of His reward to add to and bless His Kingdom in our nation. We want to love what You love and have our hearts break for all that breaks Your heart.
On the 50 State Tour Chuck Pierce and Dutch Sheets prophesied that Idaho is the treasure state with treasure in the people and the land. We pray for treasure to come forth in the economic, government and church mountains, so that apostolic leadership will arise and be set in place.
Idaho Week of Prayer
The flooding in Idaho is good news.
I praise you and thank you our LORD and King. You are overtaking in Idaho and bringing transformation to our state. Yes, we are praying for change, the change that our God brings to vanquish the enemy. We continue to call for our Victory in the 3rd heaven, for all the words of prophecy over Idaho to come into fulfillment. We are the Treasure State and the Cyrus State with our Army arising and the Church moving. Dry bones are gathering and developing the connecting tissue and the covering of skin. We are marching forth and taking the land for the Kingdom of God. Hallelujah and Hosanna in the Highest. Our God Reigns!
This is my declaration over Idaho. I hope you can join me in calling forth all that was lost, all that we’ve never seen, and see Idaho become the fulfillment of all she is meant to be.
