Command the Foreword Decree

 For background on this decree please visit Dutch Sheet's Give Him 15/Paint Your State link here.

Decree for the
United States of America and Michigan
“Command the Foreword”

We celebrate the revivals God has begun in the United States and all of the good things He is doing.  However we will work while we celebrate. We command the foreword—the foreword of God—over the United States and over Michigan. We command the foreword—that which was written even before this land became a nation. And in doing so we, the ekklesia of God, bring this nation back into alignment with the purpose for which it was established—God’s intended purposes. We know and decree His purposes and will not back down from them. We agree with Him.

Our decrees are causing a shaking that is bringing the United States, and Michigan, into alignment with God’s original foreword for this nation. Yet in spite of this shaking America has been anchored and surrounded by God’s angels, and we in Michigan establish an anchor and connect to the anchor which God has set in place. We establish a prayer grid in Michigan—inter-connected prayer groups to quickly respond to what the Lord says and assigns.

Lord, we ask You for the baptism of fire to fall now. We carry the oil of the Holy Spirit and paint the perimeters of our state. We do so in obedience to You and therefore secure our borders.

Lord, we also set a bloodline and set the fire of God as the northern border of Michigan and the United States. You are a wall of fire (Zechariah 2:5). Any destruction that would try and come from the north is blocked in Jesus’ name.

God has established our boundaries in the north, south, east, and west, above and below our land and no man can change it (Acts 17:26). We declare God’s protection, liberty, glory and His lordship over all of our land, inhabitants, borders, waters, air, and soil. We declare His protection, glory and lordship over our food, our finances, our children, schools, churches, businesses; over our governments and elections in all of our cities, townships, villages, counties and every region. We declare His protection over our military sites, our utilities, our infrastructure—our roads, highways, bridges and so on.

We declare the salvation of God, the sound of His glory, to rise from Michigan. We declare that we are pure Michigan. The land and people of Michigan are pure. The people see God (Matthew 5:8), hear His voice and respond. Jesus Christ is Lord over Michigan and the United States of America.

So now we command the foreword spoken by Robert Hunt at Cape Henry on April 29, 1607:

‘We do hereby dedicate this Land and ourselves to reach the people within these shores with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to raise up Godly generations after us, and with these generations, take the Kingdom of God to all the earth. May this covenant of dedication remain to all generations as long as the earth remains, and may this land, along with England, be Evangelist to the world. May all who see this cross remember what we have done here, and may those, who come here to inhabit, join us in this covenant and in this most noble work that the Holy Scriptures may be fulfilled. From these very shores, the Gospel shall go forth, not only to this New World, but the entire world.’


In agreement with his decree we declare that we reach the people of the United States with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are raising up godly generations and with these generations we bring the Kingdom of God to the world. This remains in effect as long as the earth remains. And those who come through our borders—whatever their intention—will align with God’s intention for this nation and join in this covenant and this most noble work to fulfill the Scriptures.


We also decree this Scripture that was read after his decree:

‘All the ends of the world shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before Thee. For the Kingdom is the Lord’s, and He ruleth among the nations.’ (Psalm 22:27-28).

The United States and Michigan belong to the Lord and He rules over us.

We also command the foreword inscribed on the Liberty Bell:

"Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all inhabitants thereof." (Leviticus 25:10).

We do proclaim liberty throughout the United States and Michigan and to all the people within. There shall be no form of slavery or human trafficking in any form.

We command the foreword written and signed by the settlers aboard the Mayflower who landed in what is now the United States of America in November of 1620, who said their voyage was done:

“for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country,”

The purpose of their settlement here—the purpose of our founding as a nation—is to advance the Christian faith and honor our King Jesus.

We command the foreword spoken in the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America:

  • That the laws of nature’s God—our God—entitles us to certain powers of the earth.
  • That all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
  • That our founding fathers appealed to the Supreme Judge of the world and so do we.
  • ·That our founding fathers declared a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence and so do we.

We command the foreword of what was spoken by John Winthrop on March 21, 1630 that “America is a city on a hill,” which is a quote from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:14).

We also declare the following Scriptures for America and Michigan:

Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever,
For wisdom and power belong to Him.
21 “It is He who changes the times and the epochs
(fixed periods of time);
He removes kings and establishes kings;
He gives wisdom to wise men
And knowledge to men of understanding.
22 “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And the light dwells with Him.
(Daniel 2:20-22)

We declare God shall remove kings or any governmental leader or influential persons who oppose His will and purposes for America and Michigan, and He is establishing leaders and influencers who will fulfill His purposes.

For His dominion is an everlasting dominion,
And His kingdom endures from generation to generation.
35 “All the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing,
But He does according to His will in the host of heaven
And among the inhabitants of earth;
And no one can ward off His hand
Or say to Him, ‘What have You done?’
(Daniel 4:34-35)

No one can challenge God or stop Him from doing His will in America or Michigan as we the ekklesia—His church—agree with Him and His plans, and declare them in faith.

24 The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; 25 nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; 26 and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, 27 that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 
(Acts 17:24-27)
God gives life and breath to all people and things. He determines mankind’s appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation that we would seek Him.

We pray as Asa, king of Judah:

 “Lord, there is no one besides You to help in the battle between the powerful and those who have no strength; so help us, O Lord our God, for we trust in You, and in Your name have come against this multitude. O Lord, You are our God; let not man prevail against You.”
(2 Chronicles 14:11)

We declare that the multitude of wicked people—or any harmful thing brought against us—will not prevail against God, His people, or the innocent and helpless.

We pray as Jehoshaphat:

 “O Lord, the God of our fathers, are You not God in the heavens? And are You not ruler over all the kingdoms of the nations? Power and might are in Your hand so that no one can stand against You.
(2 Chronicles 20:6)

We declare that God is the ruler over all kingdoms and nations. Power and might are in His hand and no one can stand against Him.

As the Psalmist says:

Let all the earth fear the Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
For He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it stood fast.
10 The Lord nullifies the counsel of the nations;
He frustrates the plans of the peoples.
11 The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The plans of His heart from generation to generation.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.
(Psalm 33:8-12)

The Lord is nullifying the wicked counsel of the nations and all counsel—global or otherwise—which opposes Him. The trends of society which are contrary to Him and His ways are being brought to nothing and have no effect over the people in America, Michigan, or my family.

We declare the Word of God that:

the scepter of wickedness shall not rest upon the land of the righteous…
(Psalm 125:3)

We take heed to the Scripture:

10 When you have eaten and are satisfied, you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which He has given you.
(Deuteronomy 8:10)

We do bless You Lord, and thank You for the good land You have given us.

We take heed to the Scripture:

18 But you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. 
(Deuteronomy 8:18)

We do remember You Lord—that You are the One who gives us power to make wealth so Your covenant may be established.

We will do all that the Lord commands us regarding the land He has given to us and will leave nothing undone. (Joshua 11:6-10, 21-23).

The preamble of the current Michigan Constitution states that our state constitution was ordained and established because we are grateful to Almighty God for the blessings of freedom and earnestly desire to secure these blessings undiminished to ourselves and our posterity.

We declare today that we are grateful to Almighty God for the blessings of freedom that He has given us and we earnestly desire to secure these blessings undiminished for ourselves and our children, and the future of Michigan.

We command the foreword of the original Michigan constitution of 1835 that states:'

  • Every person has the right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of his own conscience, and no person can be forced to do so against his will.
  • No civil or religious rights shall be diminished or enlarged based on account of a person’s opinion or beliefs regarding religion.


Give thanks and praise to God!

Prayer, Exhortation, & Decree for the Youth

 by Rose Murdock

Here is a sample intercessory prayer which you can use to stand in the gap for the youth in your city, county, state etc. Adapt it to fit your community and as the Holy Spirit leads.

On behalf of all the young people in Waterford and Michigan I offer the following prayers, exhortations, pledges, and decree.

Prayer: Lord, I pray the young people of Waterford and Michigan come to Christ and become an example of a true believer in Christ Jesus, as revealed in their speech, their conduct, their love, their faith and their purity. Let them gather together to read Scripture and listen to exhortation and teaching. (1 Timothy 4:12-13). Let the Jacob Generation arise—those who seek Your face, have clean hands and pure hearts. Let Your Crusaders arise as prophets in their own homes. Let them develop passionate love for You, unshakeable faith, great discernment, a hunger and thirst for righteousness and truth, with the fruit of the Spirit, as well as the courage and power of God, to overcome all the enemy throws at them.

Let none hinder the children, youth, or anyone from coming to Jesus. I rebuke any and all barriers that would hinder these ones from coming to the Lord. Whether it’s a religious spirit, satanic barriers or distractions, demonic influence from family, teachers, friends or others. Let all barriers keeping the young ones and others from Jesus be brought down now in Jesus’ name. (Matthew 19:14). Let them remain safe from all evil influences spirit, soul, and body, in Jesus Name.

Pray more as the Lord leads…

Exhortation to the people: Young people of Waterford and Michigan, come to Jesus! He is waiting for you with open arms. He wants to bless you (Mark 10:13-16). Let Him love you. Let Him reveal Himself to you. Come to Him. Listen to His heart. Listen to what He says (John 14:21). He will lead you to the Father—the Father of life, love, and truth. Jesus is the way, the only way. He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). Come to Him, learn of Him and enter into His rest (Matthew 11:28-30).

People of Waterford and Michigan, do not stand in the way of the young ones coming to the Lord. Instead, encourage them, pray for them, make way for them to come to Jesus. Don’t look down on them. Don’t belittle them. Don’t speak against them. Pray, intercede, and love them into the kingdom of God. Come into the kingdom of God yourself. Continue to pray for them after they come to know the Lord. (Luke 17:2, Galatians 4:19, Colossians 1:9-12).

Exhort more as the Lord leads…

On behalf of all the people of Waterford and Michigan I give the following pledge: I humble myself and come before the Lord like a child to enter into His kingdom (Matthew 18:2-4). I will not stand in the way of anyone coming to Jesus and will not intentionally cause them to stumble (Matthew 18:6). I will love them and pray for them to come to Jesus and grow in the faith. I will nurture in the faith whoever the Lord sends to me for that purpose, with the love, mercy, and grace of God, and by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Pledge more as the Lord leads…

Decree: The young people of Waterford and Michigan are coming to Jesus! People of all ages are coming to Jesus! It’s a multi-generational revival! All our children are taught by the Lord and have great peace. (Isaiah 54:13). The Lord will save our children. (Isaiah 49:25). The Lord is pouring out His Spirit on all flesh and our sons and daughters shall prophesy. The old have dreams, the young see visions (Joel 2:28). The descendants of those who fear the Lord will be mighty on the earth. The generation of the upright is blessed. (Psalm 112:1-2) The Jacob generation is emerging in Waterford and throughout Michigan—the generation who seeks the face of God. The generation with clean hands and pure hearts (Psalm 24:6). All families of the nations shall worship Him. They shall tell of the Lord to the next generation and declare His righteousness to a people yet to be born (Psalm 22:27-31).

Prayer, Exhortation, & Decree for Christians

 by Rose Murdock

Here is a sample intercessory prayer which you can use to stand in the gap for the believers in Christ that are in your city, county, state etc. Adapt it to fit your community and as the Holy Spirit leads.

On behalf of all Christians who live, work, or have a connection to Waterford and Michigan I offer the following prayers, exhortations, pledges, and decree.

Prayer: Lord, You have sent Your Son on our behalf. Reveal and revive the reality of this truth and the depth of it to each one of us, so we will not turn our back on You, so we respond to Your love and sacrifice for us. Revive us and we will call upon Your Name. O Lord God of hosts, restore us, cause Your face to shine upon us and we will be saved. (Psalm 80:18-19). Pour out Your Spirit afresh upon us (Joel 2:28, Acts 2:39).

Pour out a desire for revival upon us. We cry out for revival, in our own heart first but also in our homes, families, churches, community, and all young people. Revive us first, and we will call upon Your Name. Revive us so we will shine with Your light, and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 5:16, Acts 4:29-31).

Lord, don’t give us over to the stubbornness of our own heart. We will listen to You and walk in Your ways. We will listen to Your voice and obey You, forsaking all false idols and gods, and anything that would stand in the way between us. (Psalm 81:9-12). Search us, search our hearts, and our thoughts. Reveal any harmful or wicked way in us. Lead us in Your way, and we will follow (Psalm 139:23-24). Admonish us and show us what stands between You and us. We repent of any and all pride, selfishness, and sin. We denounce all spirits of religion, antichrist, witchcraft and any other demonic spirits. We reject anything that comes between You and us. You alone are our God.

Pray more as the Lord leads…

Exhortation to the people: Oh people of God, listen to Him. Walk in His ways and He will quickly subdue your enemies and turn His hand against your adversaries (Psalm 81:13-14). Believers in Christ and seekers of truth, respond to God’s call to listen to Him and walk in His ways! Turn your heart back to your first love (Revelation 2:4). Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, and your household—your families, your children. (Acts 16:31).

Exhort more as the Lord leads…

On behalf of all believers in Jesus Christ in Waterford and Michigan I give the following pledge. Holy Father, as a believer in Christ Jesus, I come out from among the world and separate myself to You. I will not touch what is unclean, and You welcome me, and all those who do the same. You are Father to me, and I am your son/daughter. (2 Corinthians 6:17-18).

I will love You with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:29-30). I will obey Your commandment to love one another even as You have loved me. (John 13:34), and I will love my neighbor as myself (Mark 12:31) without showing partiality or favoritism. I will love my brothers and sisters in Christ as You have loved me (John 13:34). I offer my works to You, as well as my faith (James 2), and wash my robes in the blood of the Lamb, making them white (Rev 7:14, Rev.19:7, Rev. 3:4-5).

Pledge more as the Lord leads…

Decree: Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. We are a fragrance of Christ to God among both the saved and perishing. (2 Corinthians 2:14-15). Our lights and works are shining to glorify God (Matthew 5:16). God’s people are returning to Him! The prodigals are coming home!

Decree more as the Lord leads…

Prayer, Exhortation, & Decree for Families

by Rose Murdock

Here is a sample intercessory prayer which you can use to stand in the gap for the families in your city, county, state etc. Adapt it to fit your community and as the Holy Spirit leads.

On behalf of all families in Waterford and Michigan I offer the following prayers, exhortations, pledges, decree and blessing.

Prayer: Lord, I pray that the families of Waterford and the State of Michigan worship You. That they tell of You to the next generation and declare Your righteousness to a people yet to be born (Psalm 22:27-31). I pray for individual family members to come to Christ and for them to join together as a family to worship, pray, and read Your Word to establish family altars. I pray for those with no natural family to connect with their spiritual family. I pray for those believers who have unsaved family members. I thank You that as they believe in You, they will be saved as well as their households (Acts 16:31). Holy Father, I ask that You draw their family members to Jesus (John 6:44) and orchestrate their salvation. Let the blinders be removed from their minds and the strongholds of thought that oppose Christ be torn down, with every thought being brought into agreement with Christ, in Jesus’ Name (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).

I pray for Your people, believers in Christ, to know and understand the authority You’ve given them as a family unit (Genesis 1:26-28) and resist all attempts of the enemy to destroy their homes and relationships, with both You and each other (James 4:7). I pray You draw Your prodigals back to You, that they come to their senses, repent, and return willing to serve and honor You (Luke 15:17-19). I pray that those who have grown lukewarm return to their first love (Revelation 2:4). Lord, heal their backslidings and love them freely (Hosea 14:4). Revive us and we will call upon Your Name (Psalm 80:18).  

Pray more as the Lord leads…

Exhortation to the people: People of God, return to the Lord. Take words with you and return to the Lord your God (Hosea 14:2). Respond to Him and His drawing. Pray for your families. Establish family altars. Talk to each other, come to know and love each other by the Spirit of God. Let the Word of God come alive in you and in your homes. Exalt Jesus. Teach His Word and His ways to your children. Talk about Him, learn His ways, worship Him, and pray. For you who don’t know the Lord, respond to His call and drawing upon your heart. Come to Him, all you who are weary, and He will give you rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:28-29).

Exhort more as the Lord leads…

On behalf of all believers in Jesus Christ in Waterford and Michigan I give the following pledge: I will worship the Lord, study His Word, abide in Him and pray. I will welcome His presence into my heart and home. I will turn away from all evil and remove it from my life and home. I will keep God's Word and walk in His ways. I will pray for, and with, my family, loving them, getting to know them, as we establish a family altar.

Pledge more as the Lord leads…

Decree: Family altars are alive in Waterford and throughout Michigan, and more are reviving! God, send Your fire onto the altars! The families of God are reflecting Jesus Christ and shining His light into Waterford, Michigan, and beyond. I bind the enemy, satan and his demons, from interfering with the plans of God for the families in this community and state. I declare that any and all plans and schemes of the enemy over Waterford and Michigan are null and void in Jesus’ Name.

Decree more as the Lord leads…

Blessing: I bless the families of Waterford and Michigan with peace, joy, godly fellowship, and friendships with godly families. I bless them with protection, provision, abundance, healing, restoration of relationships, forgiveness, consecration to the Lord, and obedience to Christ. I bless them with freedom from all sin, addictions, deception, demonic influence and curses. I bless them with wisdom and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word.

Bless more as the Lord leads…
