I need to fill you in on some information of how this Statement of Birthright came about. First of all I am a Canadian. I began to pray for the nations of the earth seriously in May of 1995. I was praying for America every month but every time I spoke in prayer over America, I had so much to pray and speak and declare. So I started praying every week along side of my nation of Canada. The more I prayed about America the more I became interested in the Love of God that poured all over me when praying for America. A deep resolve began to come over me to pray more effectively for her. The Church I was pastoring had spent much time praying over the 10/40 window and other continents of the earth. Commitments of many days and months in prayer were a regular practice of my leadership at the Church.
The love for America yet increased along with the desire to pray more intelligently and more efficiently. A greater stirring and a feeling certain of God’s willingness to use America mightily in the earth developed into a planned strategy of prayer for America. In 1999 between Passover and Pentecost the Lord directed us to pray over America for fifty days. We were to pray state by state each night. The strategy to pray was that we would pray through a Rand Mc Nally atlas therefore in alphabetical order and assign every fiftieth Psalm to each state. Therefore Alabama would be Psalm 1, Psalm 51,Psalm 101 and so on through to Wyoming assigning Psalm 50,100,150. Seven key words all beginning with the letter “P” soon entered our prayer meetings and were being repeated often. These words have now become the key words of the birthright of America.
On the second day of the prayer meeting we were praying for the State of Alaska. This especially was a night of great unfolding revelation of which many of our prayers are based upon what the Lord showed us that night. Our life in Canada has been richly increased because of our proximity to America geographically. AS we thought about this idea we began to be very humbled by the positioning of America all around us. We marveled at the very long forty ninth parallel line that has brought an enjoyment of resources and protection over the history of our young and meagerly populated nation. We marveled that the 1812 attempt of control over us was more directed towards Britain than the new founded nation of Canada ( a nation that would get it’s start some fifty-five years later). Not once in our 143 years of history (since 1867) has America ever challenged our sovereignty. America has given us her wing of protection through the years of the Cold War and kept Russia on their side of the Arctic. Alaska’s positioning in the far north gave all of Canada a security in those fearful days. In addition all the reserves of the American NORAD system and the American air force and military bases kept a watchful eye over the superpower Russia who made many aggressive moves against many vulnerable nations in those days.
Alaska to Canada as a nation, was the same as Hawaii to the south Pacific. America’s fiftieth state was a bastion of strength that was keeping several aggressive nations in their place. Japan’s imperialistic regime knew the positioning of America in the Hawaii MUST be taken out if she would be successful in placing her controls on the entire south Pacific. This resulted attack against America called Pearl Harbour. What Japan had not counted on was that she awoke a sleeping giant, and that this Giant America would stand up.
The relationship that America has with Puerto Rico and her American Virgin Islands allows for continual opportunity to watch over the Caribbean Island. The United States of America has blessed this region keeping an aggressive Cuba at bay. These are but a few examples of the positioning of America for the benefit of free loving democracies.
America’s embassies all over the world are avenues of influence in the obscure and the prominent nations of the World.
Positioning oneself for better relationship is of such great importance for good communication. America has been a Master at this in her short history. Positioning has to do with quick and readied responses to democracies around the world. Aid is able to move quickly and any other resources because of the positioning of America. Her willingness to work out relationships with all nations has benefitted her with using nation’s air space and setting up bases of operation in foreign nations therefore making it easier to make a difference in the earth.
This week in America you need to position yourself to vote. Vote for the best candidate. Vote for one who will best represent the willingness to keep these great relationships with all nations viable. Vote for one who will therefore protect all of the United State’s benefits and assets around the world. These candidates for election need to be able to continue to use Americas worldwide positioning. They need to be able to use these positions discretely but firmly for the continued benefits of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
The positioning of America geographically and her wisdom to position herself will influence the continents of the world. The nations continue to hold America in great regard. You are voting for more than a local politician but for the well being of ongoing relationships all over the word. America has helped the world to become a small place. Don’t consider your vote to be a small thing. Every vote counts. Take advantage of the choice you have been given. Honour those who have provided your right to choose by voting. Make a choice of wisdom that will continue to cause America to be held in deep regard.
Father, bless us with an understanding of your ability to use us as a nation. You appoint kings. You exalt nations. It is no small thing to be positioned by you. May the men and women that govern our land think thoughts greater than "what is in it for us". May they be men and women with an eye to the nations of the world...that we may serve, protect, and have interest in the welfare of others.
