Social distancing should not lead to social isolation. We have been urged by our national leaders to practice social distancing, which is deliberately increasing the physical space between people to avoid spreading illness. Staying at least six feet away from other people lessens your chances of catching COVID-19. We have also been encouraged to protect all Americans who are 65 years of age or older, by not visiting nursing homes and assisted living. Nothing takes […]

Coronavirus does not discriminate based on politics. Neither do prayer leaders interceding for victory against the malady. The seriousness of the rapidly spreading pandemic hit home on Capitol Hill this week as two lawmakers—one Republican and one Democrat—announced they had tested positive for the virus. Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) and Ben McAdams (D-Utah) both began to exhibit symptoms on Saturday and subsequently received confirmation that they had contracted the illness.

“Spirit of evil foreboding.” Those were the words I heard one morning in prayer. So I turned my ear to the Lord for further insight. “The spirit of evil foreboding is invading the atmosphere of this nation and will dominate if not dealt with,” He continued. Evil foreboding is defined as the feeling of impending evil, disaster or misfortune. Discord in our nation was present. However, I couldn’t imagine what was to come in the […]

Questions or Suggestions
Online Personal Safety We hope and pray that all intercessors involved in Intercessors for America are trustworthy, well-meaning, and have a heart for prayer for our nation.
However, please take the same common sense precautions online as you would offline. People online are not necessarily who they say they are or seem to be. Never give out passwords, credit card information, or other private data. Be very wary of disclosing private information to a stranger you meet via prayer messaging. Even apparently innocent information, like the name of your employer, can be used against you by scammers.
When meeting with someone for the first time to gather to pray or establish a prayer group in your local area, please remember to:
Insist on a public meeting place like a cafe or shopping center.
Do not meet in a secluded place, or invite strangers into your home.
Tell a friend or family member where you’re going.
Take your cell phone along if you have one.
Consider having a friend accompany you.
Trust your instincts.

Intercessors for America disclaims any liability or responsibility for acts, omissions, or conduct by you or any other party using its online web tools.
