Praying for America with Dutch Sheets

Author Dutch Sheets kicks off CBN's 51 Day of Prayer for America. Read Transcript


Pat: WE HAVE A TREAT

FOR YOU TODAY.

A DEAR FRIEND, DOUG SHEETS,

HAS BEEN A MAN PRAYING FOR

REVIVAL.

AND HAS HEARD FROM GOD.

IT IS SO GOOD TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

THANK YOU, PAT.

ALL RIGHT.

Pat: WHAT IS GOD

TELLING YOU ABOUT AMERICA?

YOU KNOW, I FEEL LIKE

WE'VE MOVED INTO A WINDOW OF

OPPORTUNITY THAT I ACTUALLY

AGREE WITH YOU, WHEN YOU

SAID EARLIER IN THE PROGRAM,

WE'RE WARING FOR THE FUTURE

OF THE WORLD.

I HAD A DREAM RECENTLY GIVEN

TO ME, WHERE IN THE DREAM I

HAD GROWN TO 6' 9," WHICH

WAS INTERESTING.

Pat: YOU COULD PLAY IN

THE NBA.

YEAH.

AND I KNEW INSTANTLY THAT IT

WASN'T A STATURE THING.

IT WAS A SCRIPTURE.

AND IT WAS GALATIANS 6: 9,

WHICH IS DON'T GROW WEARY OF

DOING RIGHT.

SO I STUDIED THE VERSE.

"DUE SEASON," THERE IS A

WORD, KIROS, AND IT'S A

WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY.

IT IS NOT A GUARANTEED

THING.

THE VERSE SAYS IF YOU DON'T

FAINT.

SO THE BEST TRANSACTION

WOULD BE A WINDOW OF

OPPORTUNITY.

IDIOS IS A WORD THAT MEANS

OWNERSHIP.

AND AS FAR AS GOD IS

CONCERNED, WE OWN THIS.

WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY THAT

GOD HAT GIVE HAS GIVEN TO

US.

AND HE IS WAITING FOR US, TO

DETERMINE IF WE GRAB THE

OPPORTUNITY.

I FEEL LIKE THIS IS THE

SEASON.

THIS IS THE SEASON WE'RE IN

RIGHT NOW THAT WILL

DETERMINE OUR HISTORY FOR AT

LEAST THE NEXT 40 YEARS.

Pat: WHAT HAPPENS IF WE

FAIL AT THIS POINT?

I THINK WE GO -- AT THE

VERY LEAST, WE GO THROUGH

ANOTHER CYCLE OF JUDGMENT.

AND THE ECONOMY WON'T

RECOVER, BUT WORSE THAN

THAT, WE COULD LOSE A

GENERATION.

THERE IS A GENERATION OUT

THERE THAT DOESN'T KNOW

GOD.

THERE IS A HARVEST, I

BELIEVE -- IF WE GO THROUGH

THIS WINDOW, I BELIEVE THAT

WE WILL SEE AT LEAST A

BILLION SOULS SAVED IN THE

NEXT 10 YEARS AROUND THE

WORLD.

BUT I FEEL LIKE IT CAN HANG

IN THE BALANCE, BASED ON

WHETHER OR NOT THE PRAYING

CHURCH RISES UP AND SHAKES

OFF WEARINESS AND CONTENDS

FOR WHAT GOD IS OFFERING US

RIGHT NOW.

Pat: THAT PRIZE IS SO

INCREDIBLE.

THE GREATEST MOVE OF GOD IN

THE HISTORY OF MANKIND IS

STANDING RIGHT THERE,

WAITING FOR US.

I BELIEVE IT WILL BE A

THIRD GREAT AWAKENING THAT

WILL SWEEP THE WORLD.

GOD IS TALKING ABOUT ELIJAH,

THAT EVEN THOUGH IT WAS TIME

FOR RAIN AND HE RECEIVED

SOME VICTORIES, AND THE FIRE

HAD FALLEN, HE STILL HAD TO

GO ON TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN

AND PRAY SEVEN TIMES BEFORE

THE RAIN COULD BE RELEASED.

THE NUMBER SEVEN STANDS FOR

COVENANT.

IN THE OLD TESTIMONY, WHEN

THEY WOULD MOVE TO COVENANT,

THEY WOULD TAKE AN OATH.

THEY WOULD REPEAT IT SEVEN

TIMES.

OFTEN IN SCRIPTURE, WHEN GOD

IS DEALING WITH YOU IN

JUDGMENTS IN ISRAEL, OR

RESTORATION, YOU'LL FIND THE

NUMBER SEVEN.

IT'S GOD'S SIGN.

WHETHER IT IS SEVEN YEARS --

IT IS GOD'S SIGN THAT, HEY,

YOU MOVED OUT OF COVENANT

WITH ME.

MANY TIMES, WHEN HE IS

BRINGING THEM BACK INTO

REDEMPTION AND RESTORATION,

YOU'LL FIND THE NUMBER SEVEN

OVER AND OVER.

ELIJAH HAD TO CONTEND SEVEN

TIMES.

WHY?

BECAUSE HE WAS WARRING FOR

COVENANT.

APRIL 29th WE PLANTED THAT

CROSS ON THE BEACH.

APRIL 29th, YEARS LATER,

GEORGE WASHINGTON DEDICATED

THIS NATION TO GOD.

SAME DATE, WASHINGTON FOR

JESUS, YEARS AGO,

APRIL 29th.

WE HAVE A COVENANT WITH GOD,

AND WE HAVE A ABANDONED THAT

COVENANT, AND GOD IS SAYING

TO US, RETURN TO COVENANT,

WAR FOR COVENANT.

I'M SO GLAD YOU GUYS ARE

DOING THIS, 51 DAYS OF

PRAYER.

Pat: YOU'RE

ENCOURAGEMENT TO US.

I WANT TO REITERATE WHAT I

SAID EARLIER.

NOW IS THE TIME FOR PRAY FOR

THIS NATION.

I KNOW YOU CAST OFF

WEARINESS.

THERE IS SO MANY STUFF IN

ALL OF OUR LIVES, BUT WE'VE

GOT TO GET BACK TO BASICS.

AND, REMEMBER, I WANT YOUR

NAME TO BE UP ON THIS BOARD

BEHIND ME.

TO SAY I AM GOING TO BE

PRAYING.

BY THE WAY, DON'T LET THIS

OPPORTUNITY PASS.

DUTCH IS A GREAT AUTHOR.

HE HAS WRITTEN A BOOK CALLED

"DREAM."

WHAT ABOUT DREAMS?

YOU KNOW, I FEEL LIKE THE

LORD GAVE ME THIS BOOK TO

CHALLENGE PEOPLE, NOT IN

NIGHT DREAMS, BUT TO DREAM

WITH HIM.

AND I STARTED STUDYING THE

CONCEPT OF DREAMING, AND TO

MY GREAT SURPRISE, I FOUND

THAT THE WORD "CREATE" AND

THE WORD "DREAM" OR

"IMAGINE" ARE THE SAME WORD

IN HEBREW.

WHEN WE COME INTO

PARTNERSHIP WITH GOD AND

ALLOW HIM TO DREAM OUR

DREAMS, THAT AWAKENS A

CREATIVE FORCE IN US, THAT

ENABLES US TO ACCOMPLISH THE

DREAM, AND WE BECOME NOT

ONLY SUCCESSFUL, BUT WE

BECOME AN OUTLET FOR GOD'S

DREAMS.

Pat: I FOUND THAT ALL

WE HAVE TO DO IS LISTEN TO

WHAT GOD SAYS.

IF GOD SAYS IT, THEN IT WILL

COME TO PASS.

HIS DREAMS BECOME PHYSICAL

REALITY VERY QUICKLY.

HE SPEAKS THAT CREATIVE

WORD.

THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.

AND HE GAVE US HIS DREAMING

NATURE BECAUSE HE KNEW HE

WOULD NEED PARTNERS.

AND SO WE DREAM.

HE GIVES US DREAMS.

HE HELPS US ACCOMPLISH OUR

DREAMS.

BUT AS SOME POINT WE

REALIZE, YOU KNOW, GOD HAS A

DREAM IN MY DREAM.

AND A PART OF MY DREAM IS

FOR HIM.

AND WE BECOME AN OUTLET FOR

HIS DREAMS.

Pat: DUTCH WILL BE
