Here is how you can pray prophetically over your nation. (Lightstock )

Donna Childress shares this vision (I met her at GLOBAL last week): "I would like to take time to share a vision that I had while in Washington D.C. I recently moved to Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I received an email from my friend Kathy in Myrtle Beach about one of our friend's named Annette.

Annette received a word from God that she was to go to Washington D.C. and pray around the White House on April 1, 2014. She would also pray around the Capitol Building the next day. She was also instructed to email a few friends so they could pass on the message that she was going and to meet her in Washington if anyone was interested.

She and her friends did not know how they would pay for her trip or where they would stay; they were depending on God to provide. When I heard about it, I volunteered to let them stay with me and I told them they could drive back and forth because it was only a couple hours away. I also felt led to go with them.

Here is what happened upon our arrival in Washington:

In the natural: As we were walking up the street of the White House on the North West Side, I saw the layout with the barricades that looked exactly like a dream I had the night before. As we were approaching the White House, I looked and, in the natural, I noticed how very clean everything appeared. The streets and sidewalks had no dirt or trash on them. I also noticed the buildings straight in front of me. They were all lined up in perfect rows. I could not believe my eyes just how clean everything was.

In the supernatural: God showed me a large carpet lying over the whole city of Washington and all the dirt was swept under it. 

This started our prayer walk around the White House praying for the president and our nation.

The next day, we went back to pray around the Capitol Building. As we were leaving the city:

In the natural: A big cyclone of dirt stirred up and appeared in front of our car. 

In the supernatural: I saw the carpet being lifted, all the dirt pouring out and then I heard God say, "I am lifting, I am cleaning and I am exposing." 

How to pray prophetically (comments from Mark): When Daniel noted what God intended to do (Dan. 9), he came into agreement with it by praying and fasting for it to be accomplished. I have chosen to pray for God to expose wickedness and evil and to remove it from Washington D.C.

David even went so far as to pray and ask God to remove the wicked from the face of the earth (Ps. 109). Let the Lord lead you as to how you should pray. We do know we are commanded to pray for our governments (1 Tim. 2:1,2), so let's do that.
