Almighty God we your people come before you in repentance and humility. We ask you perform a mighty work in the state of Ohio. We ask you thwart the plans of evil that our state officials and health departments are trying to pass. Instead we ask you to turn it to good as only you can do. We pray against the evil and the people that Satan is using. We ask that you would raise up the voices of the officials who are against this evil and give them courage and strength and protection to stand against it. We ask you would open the heart and mind of our governor to do your will Lord not his agenda of suppression and cowardice. We ask you for a miracle in this nation as you continue to bring the truth out in the open. That people would see and accept the truth and raise up their voices against this evil. We ask you would open the mouths of pastors to speak to the people about the lies that satan is spreading, to once again preach the truth of the gospel and not a watered down version to benefit themselves. Lord may you be glorified in the work that you are already doing and the mighty work to come. Thank you for answered prayer in Jesus's name. Amen

Praying in agreement with Wanda Alger "Directing the Spiritual Traffic" and covering every ballot, every ballot processing centers and every state, all for God's glory. And He awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” (Mark 4:39-40) We raise our voices above the demonic storms and winds of witchcraft over this nation and say, “Peace, Be Still!” We declare the supremacy of the One who created the winds and the waves and reigns forevermore as the Prince of Peace. Knowing their power is beneath us, we speak in faith to the storms and declare that we will not be hindered in getting to the other side of our victory! We declare calm and stillness over the waves as the GOD OF PEACE CRUSHES satan beneath our feet.

Father, we lift up our eyes to your throne in heaven. We are your servants and we cry out for your mercy. Have mercy on us for we are enduring much contempt from the arrogant Ps 123:3 The state of Ohio needs you to intervene. It is a swing state and we need it to swing up towards righteousness, justice and truth. May Ohio step into your calling on the state. May it overcome religious strongholds.

In the mighty name of Jesus, I speak Your truths, righteousness and justice over voters in the state of OHIO. Lord, dismantle and destroy every scheme the enemy has planned to corrupt and distort the election process. Expose anything that is illegal or fabricated. Open the eyes and convict the hearts of Your people to vote their conscience and Your values. It is You that reigns. Your Kingdom come here on earth as it is in Heaven. Compassionate Father, we Your people confess that we lack understanding. Please grant the people in OHIO and us the spiritual wisdom and insight to do the job You called them and us to do; flood our hearts and theirs with Your light of Truth. Help us and OHIO's people understand the incredible greatness of Your Spirit's power, the same power that raised Jesus from the dead. Help them and us comprehend that this power is living and breathing in us and help them and us activate this power for Your Kingdom. Glorious Father, since You have given Your people everything we need, help us make every effort to add to our faith: goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, mutual affection, and love. Help us devour Your word so that we may be affective and productive servants. In the precious name of Jesus, I call for truth to be revealed in OHIO. Remove and replace those leaders causing division. Bring to light the hidden things of darkness. Mute every lying spirit. Block every scheme of the enemy. I call for repentance and salvation for all those blinded by greed. Heal broken relationships. May Your Holy Angels destroy all hindering and unclean spirits. You are King. You are God. There is no one like You. We put our trust in You alone and declare now that You have won the battle. We accept Your promise that no weapon formed against Your people will prosper. You always turn those using weapons back upon themself. We ask that our only weapon against our enemy will be Your word of Truth. We call Your people in OHIO to vote Your values both now and forevermore. Amen

Father of creation, we praise you for guiding us toward truth. You are Holy and Righteous, Faithful and Trustworthy. We know there is nothing impossible for You. Without You, we can't survive the onslaught of spiritual darkness and the evil of the unseen world that has revealed itself in the visible world. In the name and power of Jesus who won the battle on the cross and rose from the grave and now lives at Your right hand, we ask for Your help. We stand in the gap praying for the people of NORTH CAROLINA and their leaders. Have mercy on them, O God, according to Your loving kindness; according to Your great compassion, blot out their transgressions. Wash them clean of their iniquity and cleanse them of their sin. For they know their transgressions and their sin is always before them. Against You, and You alone have they sinned and done what is evil in Your sight, ... (Psalm 51) We bind tyranny and terrorism, lawlessness and anarchy, sedition and treason, intimidation and oppression, rebellion and chaos, disorder and bedlam in the name of King Jesus. We loose freedom, law and order, righteousness, fairness, justice, respect, kindness, joy, peace, decency, understanding, wisdom, longsuffering, and love over NORTH CAROLINA We pray as this force of darkness diminishes that You will fill the void with Your Kingdom of love and unity. We declare Your plan and purpose over NORTH CAROLINA and release faith over every city, town, village and in every church, school, business, and home. We declare that every heart would break for what breaks Your heart and every person would fall to their knees and repent for their lack of action regarding Your plan. Hear our cry O Lord and attend unto our prayer for we cry out to You regarding the lies that have been poured out over our world like glue. These lies have blinded and numbed Your people to the truth and have brought fear and confusion. We ask for Your intervention so that TRUTH would be revealed. (Proverbs 12:22) We ask that Your children awaken to their responsibilities, and that You grant wisdom to each of Your children as they wake to Your calling. I submit these requests in the name of Jesus Christ, Your son and our Lord! Amen

Praise God for this state. Please overcome the secularism that has invaded this once overwhelmingly Christian state. Please put it in the hearts of our governor and legislature to limit the governor and health directors power to a short period before the legislature must get involved to prevent tyranny that has invaded us today and limited our access to our church communities. I pray they will introduce and pass strong legislation that supports our law enforcement and first responders from anarchist paid for mobs. Make the punishments strong so fewer paid participants take part. Lift up christianty and righteousness in every single polling place in Election Day and thwart any devious actions or plots that threaten to invade our election in Ohio and thwart these actions in every other state as well, particularly focusing on the entire mail in ballot process where cheating is trying to abound so that the vote of Ohio citizens in not nullified by other states cheating. Please let whistleblowers come forth by turning their hearts from participation in these planned schemes. If anyone has compromised an election machine, please make it known to the each and every voter so that they may bring it to the forefront and stop the action immediately! Praise God that we can come before you with our request and know that whenever two or more are gathered in your name, you will listen and do your will!

Father God, thank you for the opportunity to pray for OHIO and its Senators, Representative, Governor and his administration. We pray that all these people in government to draw close to You God. To know You. Because Proverbs 9:10 said: "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding." Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." In Jesus' Name, Father, if You will, please keep OHIO a red state with conservatives value whose allegiance is to God, put American (People) first then do the Constitution. So that Republican Party can do their job to protect the right of the people as it is intended when it was created in 1854. I pray that the Republican Party will be as united as the Democratic Party. Father God please raise up Christian men and women to be like Daniel who dare to stand for what is right, who will have no corruption in them because they are trustworthy, not corrupt, nor negligent. They will not bow before any the idol in the form of money, power, fear and influence. They will stand firm and speak the truth in love. They are the righteous whose allegiance only to KING JESUS. In Jesus' name, please clean up corruptions in every level of the government. Thank You Father for leading the election of 2016. We ask you again Father that You put Your hands in this 2020 election so that elections to be fair, honest and without corruption. Father, please mobilize the Body of Christ from every corner of OHIO to vote in person this Nov. 2020, to vote for President Trump so that he will be given a landslide winning and bless P Trump with all republicans conservatives administrations who will put You first and always pray for Your guidance to run this country to go back to the beginning when the founder of America made a covenant with You. I pray that the Body of Christ will exercise their right to be SALT and LIGHT of the world and be involve, more engage in government not only electing but working in the government to ignite America under God. The Body of Christ / The Church draw close to God, pray without ceasing, always wearing the Armor of God, always ready to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Body of Christ will live a family live that is desirable and envied by others so that they want to know more about Jesus. I pray that America will always respect the Bill of Right that was written by Thomas Jefferson on January 1, 1801 - a wall of separation from there being a state-church - This is what many whom fled from England experienced; where the church and state were one and the same. He was concerned that the government would fund religion as they did in England and that religious worship at a state-church would be deemed compulsory. As In his memoirs, he wanted to make sure that the state would not impose their own ideology or theology upon all churches. Father God, the Supreme Court Justices are NOT to be lifetime justices. They can be removed if their character, actions, etc. are deemed unmoral. They cannot be judicial activists. They are not to make laws as their responsibility is only to GIVE AN OPINION or TO INTERPRET THE LAW. Remove those from the bench who will refuse Christ and will always walk away from You and Your precepts. I pray for all the current justices to draw near to You so that they can do the jobs that they signed up to do. Please save this honorable court. Please restore the checks and balances on each branches’ power. As of late, the Legislative branch has abdicated its powers to both the executive branch and the judicial branch. We sorely need our true representation restored, since we are losing even the idea of ‘no legislation without representation’ and ‘no taxation without representation’. Father, restore just government to all branches, in Jesus name. May the grace of the LORD Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all from today onward. Hear our cry, O Lord, and attend unto our prayers as we pray for turnaround in America, ONE state at a time. In Jesus' name we thank You. Amen.
