GOD ENRICHES THROUGH PRAYER
AZHAPN mobilizes intercessors state wide in unity for the purpose of advancing the kingdom of God in Arizona and into the nation, restoring covenant with God, the land, and the peoples.
God has called the Heartland Apostolic Prayer Network (HAPN) into being by joining the hearts of many Kingdom leaders to the heart of God. We are working together to change the heart of America and the Nations. Our purpose and desire is to see the mountains (Isaiah 2:2) of Religion, Family, Education, Government, Media / Arts & Entertainment, Protect & Serve, and Economy in America and the Nations impacted by the Kingdom of God through our prayers and influence.
"Arizona take the point in prayer. Arizona you are warriors, that is your DNA. Wake up and become who you are. God is saying to Arizona; I am trusting you for the nation."
PRAY - For Israel:
Isaiah 62:3-4 (AMP) You shall also be a crown of splendor in the LORD’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God. You shall be called Hephzibah [which means, "My delight is in her"], and your land Beulah [which means "married"]; for the LORD will take delight in you, and your land will be married.
Romans 10:1 (TPT) Brethren, my heart’s desire and my prayer to God for them is for their salvation.
PRAY - For Government: President, Congress, Governor, and State Legislature
1 Timothy 2:1-4 (TPT) Most of all, I’m 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. For every political leader and representative, so that we would be able to live tranquil, undisturbed lives, 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.
Proverbs 21:1 (AMP) The King’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it whichever way He wishes.
PRAY - For the Church: Pray for revival, unity of the brethren and return to our first love – Jesus. It is essential in this season the local church recognizes the Holy Spirit if the mission of Jesus is going to continue through us. Ask Holy Spirit to purify His bride through His goodness and kindness, carrying the frequency of Jesus and releasing His name and wonders to the world. Release a boldness to witness.
Revelation 2:4-5 (NKJV) But I have this against you; You have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember then how far you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. Otherwise, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place-unless you repent.
Isaiah 56:7 (AMP) All these I will bring to My holy mountain And make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on My altar; For My house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples.
Acts 2:1-4 (AMP) When the day of Pentecost had come they were all together in one place, and suddenly a sound came from heaven like a rushing violent wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. There appeared to them tongues resembling fire, which were being distributed [among them], and they rested on each one of them [as each person received the Holy Spirit]. And they were all filled [that is, diffused throughout their being] with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues (different languages), as the Spirit was giving them the ability to speak out [clearly and appropriately].
Ephesians 4:3 It is important for the Church to unify in this season like never before in order to shift regions through worship and intercession. The unified church is a picture of ‘the ecclesia’, the legislative governing body, whereas the local church is a picture of the family, community – bride.
PRAY - For the United States of America: for another Great Awakening in every sphere of culture
2 Chronicles 7:13-14 (AMP) If I shut up the heavens so that no rain falls, or if I command locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence and plague among My people, and My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves, and pray and see (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land.
PRAY - Covid-19: Pray that everything that is hidden to be exposed, virus will be pushed back & disappear & healing for those who have this virus.
Psalm 9:10 (EVS) “…Nor will any plague come near your tent.”

Deuteronomy 7:15 And the LORD will take away from you all sickness, and none of the evil diseases of Egypt… will he inflict on you…”
PRAY - For Education: Psalm 91 Ask the Lord to pour out His love and compassion on our schools in Arizona. Ask Him to cultivate an environment where learning is fun, challenging and safe on a day to day basis. Pray against all unrighteous agendas, but the releasing of creative programs to build children in the image of God.
PRAY - For Family: Psalm 127:3; Matthew 18:6 and Mark 10:13-16 Pray for Arizona’s Foster Care System where believers would be called by God to adopt every child that needs a family. Command the door to shut on children being kidnapped with the purpose of sex trafficking. Pray that the family altar would be re-established within families’ homes.
PRAY - Business: Malachi 3:10 Pray for the transfer of wealth to believers. Pray for God to open the floodgates of Heaven and pout out blessings that are beyond measures and beyond the imagination of this world. May the Lord allow us to have more than enough of everything.
PRAY - Media: Proverbs 2:1-5 Pray that the Lord would have those reporting the news be drawn to what is true and right. Pray they will not be satisfied with rumors and innuendos, but cry out for greater understanding. Pray they value and embrace what is true and good. Pray the fear of the Lord leads them to the knowledge of God giving greater insight and revelation into Kingdom ways.
PRAY - Arts and Entertainment: 2 Timothy 3:16 Pray for truth, humility and purity to be presented in the sphere of Arts and Entertainment. Pray for the Lord to send His Holy Spirit into Arts and Entertainment. May it encourage godly lifestyles, behavior and values. Continue to raise up voices of righteousness, truth and justice that have not been heard.
PRAY - Abortion: Leviticus 18:21-22 and Jeremiah 19:4-5 Continue to pray that the shedding of innocent blood through abortion will come to an end and Roe verses Wade will be overturned. Thank Him for the movie “Unplanned” and Abby Johnson who raised a voice which is pulling employees out of Planned Parenthood in the hundreds. Also thank Him for President Trump defunding Planned Parenthood with our tax dollars. Lastly, thank Him for the babies who lives have been saved and their mothers. Continue to pray for the ending of abortion!
