How and why you pray for California

by | Mar 7, 2020 | Christianity Today | 10 comments

You may be sitting on the beach in Florida. You may be prepping your property for winter in Maine. You may be fighting traffic in Chicago. The furthest thing from your mind is to pray for California.

Nevertheless, California looms over you and those you love like the sword of Damocles. The seething progressives who run this state zealously seek to overthrow the United States and the Judeo-Christian ethic. Doubt this to your own peril.

And make no mistake about their power to overthrow our nation. Modern times have never seen anything like California. It is the fifth largest economy in the world.  It has only one political party. It is dominated by a handful of billionaires who bitterly despise your values. They are demonically unified. They have a plan to force their agenda on you, and the means to carry it out.

Don’t believe the blather about California wanting to secede from the United States. It’s quite the opposite. They want to become the pattern for all the other United States. Those in power plan to export their brand of socialism, green planet, climate change theory, anti-family, gender confused, progressive social justice, anti-Christian, pro-abortion ideology to the other 49 states.  They want to be the engine that drives our way of life. They don’t want to go off and do their own thing. They want to barge into your life and dictate every iota of your existence.

The trifecta of technology, entertainment, and education guarantees that California will have an outsized influence on your life—like it or not. What they have done so far is nothing compared to what they want to do, and how they plan to do it. That is why we need to pray!

Praying for California to have a revival and praying against the California satanic agenda is praying for your freedom and your children’s future.

Now let’s talk about how to pray for California. Let me tell you the story of how I learned to pray.

I was saved on October 4th 1964 in a small Free Methodist Church located at 3811 Mission St, San Francisco. The pastor, George Norsworthy began a 30 day fast the night I was born again. He discerned something.

God used him to forge the way I pray. The way he prayed made me want to pray the same way. I am certain that the way Jesus prayed overwhelmed the disciples until they blurted out, “Teach us to pray.” His answer is what we know as the Lord’s Prayer.

But two truths have guided my prayer life like no others.  The first one is found in Mark 11:24, “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”

The second one is in Luke 18:1, “Now Jesus was telling the disciples a parable to make the point that at all times they ought to pray and not give up and lose heart.”

The essence of prayer is this: You must believe absolutely that you will get what you ask, and you must keep asking no matter what happens. Everything else is just a superficial attempt. Combine these two forces in prayer and you will see miracles happen.

So here is what we are going to do. We are going to believe absolutely and irrevocably for a miracle in California, and we are never going to stop until that miracle comes. That is what I am doing, so thank you in advance for praying with me!  I know that if we all pray intensely for California, God will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

Remember: “The Lord does not delay and is not slow about what He promises…but He is extraordinarily patient toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn and repent.” (2 Peter 3:9)

P.S. I want to thank you for praying for these 2 events:







  1. Kim Barrett

    I’m praying now, but also want you to know that every wed & sat evening at 6:30 your time Apostolos out of Michigan, has a prayer conferance call at 9:30 ET & specifically holds you & the ministry up in prayer. We do lift up CA. Also one of the 24/7 prayer conferance calls lifts you & CA up in prayer. We prayed while a minister took small groups up on 7 different mountains taking communion, blowing shofars & declaring CA for the Lord. We prayed during a prayer walk from San Diego to San Francisco along the coastline from Feb 26th through Mar 3rd. We are believing God with all our hearts for revival in California!!! I just wanted to encourage you, we are praying & believing. Amen & Amen

    O God, let Mario have the Jonah anointing to cause California to be arrested by the glory of God and the gift of repentance. Let the fire fall. The God who answers by fire, He is the true and living God. Let mercy triumph over judgment.

  8. Israel Leon

    I will be there in Modesto …..

    The Bible says, The gates of hell shall not prevail.

    That GOD brings to nothing the counsel of the heathen

    That the weapons GOD has given us are more than enough to tear down every idea that exalts itself against GOD……

    And like the “good report” Caleb brought home “We are more than able to overtake them”

    GOD bless everyone who has stepped into this fight.
