Bishop Coulter: Pray for the Nation – An Appeal to Heaven from Judy Tatum

Appealing to Heaven for our nation,

Bishop Bob Coulter


AppealToHeavenFlagFor several years, our ministry has put together the National Day of Prayer for Jefferson County Ga. Our town, Louisville is the County Seat and the Courthouse is only 3 blocks from our house and ministry…Dove Tracks. I believe being in Louisville…because it is the county seat… gives us authority in the spirit realm as we pray and make decrees over our area.

This year the Holy Spirit has brought to my attention the flag…AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN and this will be our main focus. This flag, that few seem to know anything about, has a rich place in our history as a Christian nation. If you were in doubt that America was founded on Christianity… this piece of history makes clear what at least one of our forefathers had in mind.


In 1775 before we had our Stars and Stripes, we had…AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN Flag…commissioned under George Washington’s authority as our Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army. This flag was originally used by a squadron of 6 cruisers… during the American Revolutionary War. It was also used by Massachusetts’ navy vessels in addition to privateers sailing from Massachusetts. This became the flag of their state navy.


The phrase “Appeal to Heaven” suggests that after all other alternatives of seeking justice have been exhausted, only an “appeal to heaven” remains.

Dutch Sheets has a mandate from the Lord to take this message around America to call us back to prayer. You can listen to him share about the flag and the dreams that people have had about him and the APPEAL TO HEAVEN flag at This is a now word for America! Our hope lies in our praying!

And that is what the National Day of Prayer is all about! We don’t look to anyone to save us we look to God! We aren’t looking to a president…we are not looking to a political party…we are looking to the ONE Who is Faithful and True! We believe Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. We believe 2 Chronicles 7:14 that IF we…God’s people turn from wickedness…humble ourselves…seek His face through prayer…HE WILL hear us and HE will heal our land.


Many of His people are being obedient to this scripture…at least a faithful remnant… and because He keeps His promises I’m expecting Him to reach down and heal this land we call America! I would encourage you to find out when the National Day of Prayer is being held in your county and join them. If there is not a scheduled National day of Prayer in your county contact the National Day of Prayer and volunteer to be your county coordinator!
