From Cathy Braun:
My time is completed as the State Coordinator for Michigan.  It was been a pleasure to stand with the many Michigan prayer coordinators and the National Day of Prayer Task Force leadership all across the nation. I look forward to having time for other prayer related "endeavors" such as writing and travel. After much prayer and with great confidence in the plan of the Lord, last month I recommended Pastor Sylvia Williams to our national leadership.

Sylvia Williams is now the State Coordinator.  Please welcome her. 

Sylvia L. Williams is the founder of He Giveth More Grace Ministries, a non-denominational, multi-cultural ministry devoted to teaching, training and equipping members of the Body of Christ to fulfill God’s call upon their lives. She is also the founder of Women of Destiny, the women’s fellowship at Merciful Ministries Church International in Redford, Mich., where she pastors alongside her husband, Pastor Lee Williams.   
Pastor Sylvia is an international speaker and a published author and journalist, and is known for turning “wimps into warriors” through her prophetic teachings and apostolic training. She uses her God-given gift for writing and editing in both the Christian and secular world. Her “Spiritual Warfare Training Manual” was published in 2004 and she is currently authoring a book on prayer and intercession.
Pastor Sylvia began her professional writing career as a newspaper reporter at the Columbia Daily Tribune in Columbia, Mo., when she was a senior in high school. Her more than 40 years of journalistic experience includes managing editor of an international business-to-business magazine and manager of the writing department of Marilyn Hickey Ministries in Denver. She is also a former assistant professor of journalism at Metropolitan State University of Denver.
She is the founder and CEO of Dawson Publishing, a for-profit publishing company that serves both the Christian and corporate sectors. Pastor Sylvia is an editorial consultant, ghostwriter and copy editor, providing writing and editing seminars as well as book and magazine publishing conferences in Michigan and other parts of the United States.

The debate today, September 26, 2016 is located at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y. Moderated by (NBC) Lester Holt. Debates are key so we must pray and fast.
1. Psalm 91 Abiding in the shadow of the Almighty.
2. Psalm 24:7-10 Praying for the King of Glory to enter in and to seal in this event. We govern in prayer. The Lord is strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
3. Jeremiah 1: 10 See I have appointed you this day over the nations and the kingdoms to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and overthrow and to build and to plant.
4. We destroy all plots and any confederation of evil that attempts to interfere. Confounding all forces sent to disrupt or interfere. The moderator will operate in fairness with no bias. We invite in Holy Spirit.
5. The teams of intercessors on site will discern as needed and move in revelation from Heaven. The Host of Heaven is set there in every strategic place. God's wisdom to the person of His choice and they will speak with clarity and sidestep any traps.
6. Psalm 100 Now worship the Lord as He is enthroned on our praises. Let God arise and His enemies be scattered!
7. We will have the President that God has chosen and all strategies to usurp that authority are broken by Holy Spirit and the Host of Heaven. Amen!
8. We go to the Courts of Heaven and ask the Just Judge to render a decision on our behalf. There will be a shift of kingdoms and there will be a smooth transition to the new beginning!
