I wanted to read the first four verses from Timothy and then read the translation from Passion just to get a different, clearer picture of this passage.
(1) First of all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men, (2) For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way. (3) For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior, (4) who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth. (8) I desire therefore that in every place men should pray, without anger or quarreling or resentment or doubt [in their minds], lifting up holy hands. I Timothy 2:1–4, 8 (AMPC)
Most of all I am writing to encourage You to pray with gratitude to God. Pray for all men with all forms of prayers and requests as you intercede with intense passion. And pray for every political leader and representative so that we would be able to live tranquil, undisturbed lives, free from persecution as we worship the awe inspiring God with pure hearts. It is pleasing to our savior God to pray for them. He longs for everyone to embrace His life and return to the full knowledge of truth. I Timothy 2:1–4 (Passion: Letters from Heaven)

I like how it makes it so clear. We pray for kings and all who in authority. Here is the way this translation says it "all men with all forms of prayers… pray for every political leader and representative so that it will go well with us." So we could look at this in a little different way. Our nation has moved and things are changing. You can turn on the TV every day and see there is a battle going on. There is a battle to keep it moving in the right way because the Devil uses men and women to try to move it in another way. That's just the way it is.
We as the body of Christ are responsible not just to pray for the transition but we are responsible that the President Elect that we have is the President Elect. That's how I look at it. The Church really stood up, took its place and began to pray that our nation would go in God's way. And it has happened but it hasn't happened yet. But things are happening. So things are changing all the time.
If we are responsible to have had the change that we already have had, we need to be responsible to continually lift up and pray over this transition. I am not prophesying it but just naturally speaking, the pressure against what we've believed God for will be ramped up. But we take our place, we do what we've been called to do, and we keep pressing and keep everything covered in the blood. Amen.

Especially the Supreme Court because they have some sort of plan going on already in the Senate to try to block Trumps nominees. We just forbid that. And then I saw something about some of these groups that are funded by George Soros, you know to just create trouble, that they are planning some sort of huge riots the day of the inauguration. They are going to try and disrupt the inauguration.
Prayed…
We forbid all that activity and the resources that come from just one man
Commanding that stream of Babylonian money to dry up at the root
Be stopped up in Jesus' name
No man eat fruit of you again
We plead the blood of Jesus over our Senators, Congressman, the White House
Over the Supreme Court
The State Houses, the Governor Houses
We plead the blood of Jesus on the school houses, school boards
Saying Jesus is Lord over the United States of America
We bind every lying spirit that would try and take over the conversation
We command those lying tongues to be put to silence in the name of Jesus
That the truth of God's Word has the preeminence in our media, in our government, in our president, in our senators
In the courts of this nation – justice and righteousness will prevail in Jesus' name
We pray over ever Electoral College vote
There is pressure today right now to change the votes and people are getting death threats. Thousands and thousands of nasty emails, phone calls, pressure to change and vote in another way. No, that is not happening. If anything, these Electoral College votes will be more stronger than they ever were.
We plead the blood of Jesus over every aspect of it, and again, in the same way, we put a stop to all of the activity of the enemy that's trying to work its way against the Electoral College. It's the way it's set up, a creative plan at the very beginning to not allow the big states or the big cities to control the nation. Hallelujah!
It won't happen!
What was voted for shall come to pass totally and completely in Jesus' name
We lift that date up, we cover every part of it, every decision with the blood in Jesus' name
The things that were meant for evil will be turned around and put right back on those evil plans
They will fall into the pits of their own digging
Lord, let Your favor be upon those that have stood up for You
We call for Your favor to be upon all those that have taken a stand courageously for Your Word, Your way, Your truth, for Your righteousness, for Your justice
Let Your favor be upon them, Lord
That those who try and speak and stand against them would fall away in shame and destruction and their mouths would be stopped in the name of Jesus
But let Your favor increase more and more and more upon the hands of those who are standing up for You in Jesus' name
Pastor Ray shared…
I just had this quick little picture behind the scenes in a room, a corporate setting with a large table where men and women were seated around and they were working to come up with plans that would steal, disrupt in a different way. I don't know what it was. Our nation, to disrupt the way it has been preplanned to go and turn it around back over even worse than it was and I could just hear their voices…
Continued praying…
So we declare this morning "Confusion there!"
Confuse them! in Jesus' name!
They will not even remember what they were saying!
They will not remember what they were planning
Disrupted! Stopped! Confused in Jesus' name
We just go right around that room and declare the blood of Jesus
These plans of the enemy shall not come to pass
Be still, leave the room, it's over and finished in Jesus' name!
Oh the blood of Jesus!
You shall come up against us one way and flee seven – confusion
Where the enemy is riled up, the Holy Ghost comes on the scheme
And lifts up the standard of excellence in Jesus' name
Over every one to be set into the office where they need to be
Those justices of the Supreme Court
Justice, justice, God's plan or woman
Just the right ones in Jesus' name
Moving them into those positions in Jesus' name
This country is moving more and more in God's right way
This is just the beginning
In every arena be it in the military, we are moving in the right way
Strength to every office holder in Jesus' name
We lift up the names – pleading the blood
Over the right steps, orders, commands in Jesus' name
The economy – upwards, momentum in the businesses
The economy of the Church
The transfers, increases, momentum
More and more and more than enough

(1)Behold, a King will reign in righteousness, and princes will rule with justice. (2) And each one of them shall be like a hiding place from the wind and a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry place, like the shade of a great rock in a weary land [to those who turn to them]. (3) Then the eyes of those who see will not be closed or dimmed, and the ears of those who hear will listen. (4) And the mind of the rash will understand knowledge and have good judgment, and the tongue of the stammerers will speak readily and plainly. (5) The fool (the unbeliever and the ungodly) will no more be called noble, nor the crafty and greedy [for gain] said to be bountiful and princely. (6) For the fool speaks folly and his mind plans iniquity: practicing profane ungodliness and speaking error concerning the Lord, leaving the craving of the hungry unsatisfied and causing the drink of the thirsty to fail. (7) The instruments and methods of the fraudulent and greedy [for gain] are evil; he devises wicked devices to ruin the poor and the lowly with lying words, even when the plea of the needy is just and right. (8) But the noble, openhearted, and liberal man devises noble things; and he stands for what is noble, openhearted, and generous. (9) Rise up, you women who are at ease! Hear my [Isaiah's] voice, you confident and careless daughters! Listen to what I am saying!
(15) Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and the fruitful field is valued as a forest. (16) Then justice will dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation) will abide in the fruitful field. (17) And the effect of righteousness will be peace [internal and external], and the result of righteousness will be quietness and confident trust forever. (18) My people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, in safe dwellings, and in quiet resting-places. Isaiah 32:1–9; 15–18 (AMPC)

Continued praying…
We stand on every word of that
We pray it, we believe it, we receive it in the name of Jesus
Entering into a great, great way
Steps of faith and moving into a greater way
Lifting and lifting, preparations are being made
Openings, great openings
Dates and times and ways and plans
Ministering spirits "Go, cause it to come"
Transfers – there is no end to it
It's over and above!

"I will open rivers in desolate heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water." Isaiah 41:18 (NKJV)
As I meditated on that, I saw that rivers never flow up on the desolate heights. There might be a spring that would come out from underground but rivers flow in the valleys. But it said "I will open rivers on desolate heights and fountains in the midst of the valleys. So I just took that there is nothing that limits God. He can turn the whole world upside down if He decides to. But He will never violate His Word, but He's going to open rivers on desolate heights. He's going to cause fountains to spring out in the midst of the valleys. He's going to make the wilderness a pool of water and the dry land springs of water. Hallelujah! Glory, glory, glory.
You know I think about our government could look like a wilderness or a dry land because there has been a famine of righteousness in so many areas but He's going to make it a pool of water. He is watering it! He's watering it with His Spirit. He's watering it with His Word!
Causing a crop of righteousness to spring forth
In the congress, in the Supreme Court, in the schools, in the media!
We call for voices of righteousness and truth to prevail in this nation!
We command the lying voices to "Be quiet!" in Jesus' name
They are shut down, they are shut up
They are dismayed of face! They shrink away! They are grieved!
Pastor Ray shared…
I agree with you. Some things will be shut down. And they were spouting out inaccuracies, lies, absolute, manufactured lies. And they shall be shut down by the blood of the Lamb. For the Church shall rise up and speak continually and say "Shut up!" "Be still!" and "Be Shut down!" in Jesus' name
That scripture seems almost opposite of what we might think… like you said in the high places there would be rivers. That seems like that would be where the springs, like you said, but it's opposite. So things in our country will begin to look opposite. In other words, a paradigm shift to God. Rivers coming down from heaven on the high places that are desolate. Rivers, so much rain of the Holy Ghost coming down that it creates a river on a high desolate place where there never was any pathway for water before. Hallelujah there is pathways for water on the desolate heights!
Pathways for the glory of God
Pathways for the Holy Ghost
The former rain and the latter rain together being poured out on the land
The desolate heights of government!
We call for a great rain – a rain of truth!
A rain of God's Word
And it will rain and it will rain
For a prosperous Church
And the Church will reign with the glory of God
Out of the red and into the black – it's a turn around
It's a release of the glory of God!
Manifested in resources of every kind!
Oh the silver and the gold
More and more and more in Jesus' name
Let's worship Him a bit
We are so grateful and so thankful, Lord
That we are not just left here alone
Not on our own but we have You, our precious Holy Spirit
Internally and the waters of heaven, those waters that keep springing up like a well
It's a well and it's a momentum that will cause change all around us in Jesus' name
Wherever we go, the water will flow and flow and flow
And it will flow in high places and it will flow in low places
Ms. Annie led us in singing "I will Exalt You"
