Daily Prayer Declaration
Today, the Editor’s team has received that in the next 24 days of fast and prayer, we will pray and declare the following four topics.
Ask God to save the souls of the members of Free Mason

Ask God to save the souls of Islamic extremists
We know the danger that Islamic extremists bring to the world with their terror attacks, as well as their prayers that often become the curses toward Israel and the rest of the world. Especially during Ramadan time, the destructive power of Islamic extremists can increase enormously (for example, the deadly suicide bomb attacks in the Indonesian city of Surabaya this year, and the Philippine City that was besieged by Islamic State-linked militants. Let us declare the following:
- In the name of Jesus, the blessings and the peace of God will replace all the curses from Islamic extremists.
- In the name of Jesus, all the terror attacks that Islamic extremists plan will fail and be interrupted before they even start.
- In the name of Jesus, the salvation and grace of God will come into the lives of these Islamic extremists.
Ask God to save the souls of the LGBT group
In addition, the trend of LGBT is actively searching its way in the schools of every nation, pushing the legalization of homosexual education and same-sex marriage. Therefore, we need to pray and declare the followings everyday:
- In the name of Jesus, the promotion of LGBT ideology all over the world will fail, including the legalization of same-sex marriage and homosexual education.
- In the name of Jesus, the grace of God and salvation will come to LGBT group.
- In the name of Jesus, one husband and one wife system will be restored all over the world.
- In the name of Jesus, young people will wake up and reject the ideology and value of same-sex marriage. They will embrace the truth and teaching of one husband and on wife system.
Ask God to keep all the nations out of the war crisis and into peace
- In the name of the Lord, the whole world will enter into a season of reconciliation and peace, to break away from the enemy’s division, and tricks to detonate wars, and especially ask God to preserve China-US relationship, the relationship between the United States and Russia, Taiwan’s relationship with China, and the relationships between Middle East Muslim countries and Israel.
Country transformation of Uganda
I have not spoken in secret, from somewhere in a land of darkness; I have not said to Jacob’s descendants, ‘Seek me in vain.’ I, the Lord, speak the truth; I declare what is right. (Isaiah 45:19)
Just only twenty years ago, every bad things you can image that can happen, happened in Uganda: dictator that involved with witchcraft, grand human sacrifices, and much persecution and killing of Christians. Many pastors were held in prison; AIDS reached as high as 34%, of the proportion, and the proportion of Christians is very scarce. If there are 5 people in the church, it is the “best” condition.
Since independence in 1962 to 1986, Uganda experienced a total of ten presidents; during the war, one is crueler than another, especially when Idi Amin was in power, he listed Islam as a state religion, killing millions of innocent people, and the secret tactic of evil spirits was running rampant, and a lot of Christians are persecuted. After Amin stepped down, Uganda continued to suffer from AIDS, leaving the country helpless. The United Nations Health Organization even announced that it was the country most affected by AIDS. Why is Uganda always a place of hardship and disaster in the eyes of the world?
Uganda was transformed miraculously
Twenty years later, today there are 90% of Christians in Uganda, only 6% of Muslims, signs and wonders and miracles swept across the country, leaders of the government, the military, and the business community have been reborn and saved. Even when the Christian president came to power, the government cabinet also had a “Moral Integrity Department”, which made a thousand-year vows with God to dedicate the country to God. Then AIDS patients miraculously recovered, Uganda’s economy began to flourish, rank second in the developed economies of Africa. How did Uganda turn things around? How was this all done?
All this is from the church in Uganda came together to earnestly pray for the country in accordance with God’s will! Uganda is the center of Africa. Some scholars describe it as the womb of Africa and carried the ancient civilization. Uganda has a long and spiritual history. From 1775 gospel was brought to Uganda, the power of darkness rises to fight with the kingdom of light. When white missionaries and local leaders clash and were forced to leave, a small number of black believers gathered to pray and even fast, so the Christian faith was able to be preserved, and the missionaries was able to send letters through Arab merchants to encourage the precious warriors of gospel.
In 1886, when the tyrannical king established Islam as the state religion, demolished the church and persecuted the Christians, and took the leader to the court for trial, many young believers were martyred. In 1893, the lukewarm spirit entered the church, and all fellowship stopped gathering, barely maintaining the worship of the Lord on Sunday. Until one day in 1915, a believer threw the baptism certificate to the pastor, indicating that he no longer believed in the Lord, because he was fed up with this kind of hypocrisy, living as a double-life. The young pastor cried out to the Lord in the secret place in the inner chamber, and repented to the congregation publically during the Sunday church sermon, immediately he received a response, from that moment on the church began to revive, the love of God entered the family, and influenced the neighbors. From 1775 until 1990, Uganda’s churches had undergone 6 transformational movements, testifying the miraculous power of God.
The key to prayer in the Uganda Great Revival
In the 1970s, President Amin came to power, he slaughtered ministers, and killed millions of innocent people… During that dark time, Christians hid in the jungle to gather and pray for the country, to intercede day and night. When the church in Uganda began to pray for the country in accordance with God’s will, the tyrant Amin stepped down two years later. At that time, Pastor John mulinde who God had chosen to lead the great transformation of Uganda, shared the prayer of breakthrough for the land, was to “establish an altar.” Pastor John put forth “Abraham’s strategy”, the most important strategy is to establish a personal prayer altar. No matter what industry you are engaged in, everyone can have a life style of prayer and maintain a heart and mind and habit of willingness to lay down oneself at any moment to commune with God. Establish a network of prayers that are in alignment with God.
Pastor John Mulinde heard God say, “Give me a net, I will pull your country out of trouble…” he continued to pray and seeks and understood the meaning of that “net” means a network of unified prayer. Unless Uganda begins to establish a network of unified prayers, individuals cannot face Uganda’s ruling power in the air alone, unless there is a vision that transcends individual ministries and sects, and expands to see God’s intentions toward Uganda, people cannot overcome the power of the evil forces in the air, it would be impossible to establish the kingdom of God in Uganda.
Thank the Lord, by relying on the Lord, Pastor John and his team did it. ” if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”(2 Chronicles 7:14) By praying for the spiritual environment of Uganda, and rebuking the spirit of the sorcerer, pleading and praying as if birthing pain for the revival and change, the incredible thing happened – now Uganda has taken on a new look, people are proud of being Ugandans, this is the result of the power of prayer!
No matter where you are, Pastor John Mulinde said: “Transformation begins with the longing for the living water of Jesus Christ.” In the face of the chaos and needs of the end times, rise up and build your altar (individual altar – family altar – church altar), and hand and hands join with in the nationwide prayer network and pray together with earnestness!
Pursuing Intimacy With God
Grace of Recording (Writing Down Revelations from God)
Mark 4:25 “Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.””
Dear Abba Father,
We want to thank You and praise You! As we seek You, You often speak to us in various ways. Help us take them seriously and write them down. Oh Father, You have taught us that “whoever has will be given more!” (Mark 4:25) Lord, You know that we have been foolish people who often fail to treasure Your precious revelations to us. Often it can be an inspiration from Your Word, a dream or a vision, yet we did not take them seriously and write them down immediately; soon we forgot them…
Today, in the secret place, Father, we want to ask for grace to write down the revelations You give us. Help us not to be foolish people, but who will treasure what You say and treat Your revelations like nuggets of gold. Help us write them down earnestly so that we can cherish them and meditate upon them at any time. Oh Father, may we be worthy of Your trust! Whenever You speak, we will listen, write down, and run after You. Help us walk the path of eternal life with a sense of direction and a sense of mission until we see You face to face. Thank You for granting us grace upon grace every day. Father, how we love You!
In the name of Jesus, Amen!
Repentance for the City 01
And it will be said: “Build up, build up, prepare the road! Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people.” For this is what the high and exalted One says— he who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite. I will not accuse them forever, nor will I always be angry, for then they would faint away because of me— the very people I have created.” (Isaiah 57:14-16)
Abba Father, as we live in this dark and rebellious age, when the media is filled with all kinds of lies, attacks, slandering and greed; when our city and our country is filled with deception and perversion; when hatred, competition and strife contend for our local governments, and injustice and unrighteousness fills the room… If not for your endurance and merciful kindness, we would not have stood to this day.
Abba Father, you have said, “I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one.” Lord, we are coming to you in unity and crying out. We are willing to rise up, rebuild the wall and stand in the gap. We are a people called by Your name, please give ear to our hearts as we cry out. Let the Holy Spirit awaken the pastors and ministers of the whole country to rise up, to preach the message of repentance and the end times; we bind all the spirits of slumber and indifference, blindness and unbelief. We ask the Holy Spirit to greatly pour out and excite the souls of the church, in order to see clearly in her hardships, poverty, blindness, and nakedness; and to lead us to be full of fervour, to repent, opening the eyes of our hearts so that we may see, and know that the day of the Lord Jesus’ coming is near. Let the intercessory warriors in all parts of the world be awakened, willing to rise up in partnership with the Holy Spirit to pray daily, and to seek the face of God.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen!
Pray For Nations
[Editor’s note: In these forty days, we will first pray for the countries participating in this fasting prayer. After that, we will pray daily for the countries in the continent according to the continents of the world. We will select three to four countries / regions and pray for them everyday.]
Pray for the Republic of the Congo
There are two nations named Congo in the world, also known as Democratic Republic of the Congo and Republic of the Congo. Separated by the Congo River, both areas used to be territory of Bantu Kingdom of Kongo, which is one of the reasons why both areas share similar ethnic group, language, and culture. In 19 century, Democratic Republic of the Congo has been colonized by Belgium while Republic of the Congo was formerly part of the French colony. In June of 1960, the Belgian Congo achieved independence under the name Democratic Republic of the Congo, and named Kinshasa as its capital city. In the same year, the former colony of French Congo also gained independence in August under the name Republic of the Congo, and named Brazzaville as its capital city. Although these two nations are geographically close, their politics, economy, resources, and people’s livelihood are different more or less.
[Background: The Republic of the Congo, one of the first oil producers in Africa, is rich in natural resources. Nevertheless, oil revenue did not provide the same degree of prosperity equally nationwide. More than half of its population live poorly on unstable jobs, such as farming, fishing, and hunting. After the civil war between 1997-2001, government tried to bring new constitution and referendum to revitalize itself, when dealing with corruption, arresting political prisoner, lack of human rights protection, and fraud on treasury. Although many declares they are Christian (including Catholics and all denominations of Protestant), they do not understand Jesus Christ is the only way for redemption and salvation. Many are confused Christianity with pantheism, idolatry and religious ritual.]
- Pray for government of the Republic of the Congo: Father, May the power of the Holly Spirit, renew government officials’ understanding of You and Your words. May they raise up to become the true believers and apostles. May they receive heavenly wisdom and compassion when dealing with a broken nation under reconstruction. May they faithfully allocate wealth brought by oil production to bless its people and establish its community.
- Pray for churches in the Republic of the Congo: Father, may the churches raise up again for a mission to preach the pure gospel to all citizens in the nation, helping its congregations to discern heresy and false teaching. May ministry training and equipment been carried out without hindrance. May young people dedicate to the calling of Jesus Christ for its nation. May the political situation in the Republic of the Congo remain stable in the long-term.
- Pray for the President Denis Sassou-Nguesso: Father, we give You thanks for the peace, stability, unity, and reconciliation between people groups in the nation after President Sassou came to power in 1997 to put down riots. May President Sassou put You before him, humble himself to receive Your heavenly wisdom, strategy, and power. May he lead the country into a flourishing and peaceful future with blessings of heavenly righteousness, just, integrity, and self-control.
[ Background: Holland a.k.a. the kingdom of Holland, is situated in Western Europe, next to the North Sea, a main gateway to Europe, with an extremely high population density. Rotterdam is the busiest port in the whole world. Holland’s economic is highly developed, and is the third largest agricultural exporter of the world and a main global ship-building nation. Being a member of the European Union, unemployment is low.
Holland is known to be a democratic nation, and its society is long-known for being tolerant of differences, with laws permitting abortion, sex-trade, homosexuality, euthanasia and limited acceptance to and legal usage of recreational drugs, such as marijuana. In 2001, it became the first nation in the world to legalize same-sex marriage, and in 2002, it became the first nation in the world to legalize euthanasia, and is a nation leading the charge of the “new age” movement. Holland is a nation with a minority for homosexual marriage and legalizing co-habitation laws, at the same time, statistics show less and less of the Dutch people are entering into marriage, with half of newborns being out of wedlock.
Holland was a Protestant nation. But now, Holland is one of the most secular nations in Europe, with around half of her population not engaging in religion activities. Her main religion include Catholicism (28% of the total population) and Protestantism (16% of the total population). Islam has become the third largest religion in Holland. Behind the mask of tolerance of the Dutch people, lies spiritual apathy. The church is experiencing massive loss of believers, with projection in 2015, over half of the church members being over 65 years old, with half of her population never been reached by the gospel. Furthermore, large number of believers are leaving the church, and are plunging into immorality, losing their witness. Too many of the youth, though not unfamiliar with Christ, believe this faith has nothing to do with them.
Dutch Christian newspaper “Motherland” once published an article, pointing out that the new Muslim Europe has already arrived, it is as if there is a mass migration of Christians which has emptied the churches of Europe. In fact many historical Christian churches have already been sold to the lowest bidder, and have become residential buildings, hotels and prayer centers for other religions.
Dutch Catholic bishop Tiny Muskens called for the name “Lord/God” to be changed to “Allah”, in order to diffuse the tension between Muslims and Christians. He believes God does not mind, since Indonesian and Middle-Eastern Christians call God “Allah”. Holland has a Muslim population of over 1 million.
Pray that the Christian faith call be revived from its deep historical roots and bring new power of life.
- Pray for the souls of the Dutch people: Abba Father, we ask that You forgive the Dutch government and the Dutch people, in their deception and ignorance, they have abused the freedom You have given them to allow in abortion, sex-trade, homosexuality, and euthanasia which destroys life, and indulged themselves in the lusts of the eyes and lust of the flesh. May You forgive Your priests and stewards of Kingdom heritage, for they have caused Your sanctuaries to be desolate, secularized and even become places of pagan worship. Please forgive the Catholic leadership to lift up the name of a different God, misleading the believers. Father, may Your mercy and grace come upon the people of this land, breathe upon them, awaken their spirits, cause them to repent, to receive salvation and escape from the bondage and control of sin. To come back from the dead as a powerful army for the Kingdom of God.
- Pray for the Dutch Christians and the church: May God grant holy hunger and thirst, so they can be rooted and grounded in the Word and the love of God, to know God deeper, and be ignited by God’s love. That they will offer themselves as living sacrifices, not to be conformed to the world, and their mind be renewed day by day and become a bride who loves Jesus and worship the living God in truth . In the name of Jesus, the church in Holland will once again cleanse themselves with the word of God, forsake every comprise in the truth, to know the end time destiny of the church, so the church can truly become a house of prayer and worship, may God grant the church spiritual strategy and insight, to establish united prayer altar and wall of fire, praying night and day. Bring down national revival and transformation!.
- Pray for the families and marital laws of Holland: We declare in the name of the Lord, that God shall overturn the wave of homosexuality in Holland, to restore fully the right relationship between the two genders, and the one husband and one wife family system that is after God’s own heart. To establish families in holiness and truth and raise up God-fearing offspring. May God bring the negligent parents to repentance, and experience supernatural healing and restoration.
- Pray for the government: May God save the souls of the governmental officials, raise up political leaders after God’s own heart, to seek God’s wisdom and strategy, to set laws to manage this nation to lead the Dutch people to be delivered from the sins of immorality and murder etc. That they cloth themselves in holiness, to welcome the return of the King of Glory.
- Pray for national leader Mark Rutte: The prime minister of Holland is a free-thinker who is close to the people. Father, lead him to be free but not without restraint, Keep his heart, with a grateful and humble heart, to seek Your face, give to the prime minister and leaders wisdom, strategy, righteousness and leadership to lead the government and people to turn back to fear God.
In the name of Jesus, Amen
Pray for World Leaders
- President Trump of the United State
- Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel President

Abba Father, we thank You for setting up these world leaders at this time. We ask you to fill them with Your Spirit daily, bless them and their family, watch their coming and going, keep them healthy and give them wisdom to govern all the domestic and international affairs according to Your will. May they be graceful to God’s people and protect Christian religion freedom.
Pray for President Trump:
Lord! We believe the one that can save the United States is not President Trump, but You, the only true God of the Trinity. However, we believe it is You who raised up President Trump to lead US back to her calling spiritually, and to recover its economy financially. We pray for President Trump and his officials. We ask You to keep President Trump with a humble heart, so that he will seek heavenly wisdom, tactics, strategies, and guidance. We pray for economy recovery not only on US but also on her allies. We pray that US will bring positive influence to China’s economy and to the world. We pray that God will guide President Trump and grant him wisdom and counsel to manage the foreign relationship and economic affairs with Turkey.
God, give President Trump’s spiritual insight, perspective and heavenly sights, to deal with China-US trade issues and to value the relationship between the two countries. Give him godly policies that can benefit both, and become a blessing to the United States and China.
In Jesus’ name we declare, Amen!
Pray for Chairman Xi Jinping
Lord! As apostle Paul urges, “that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority (1Tim 2:1),” Now, we pray in the name of Jesus to bless Chairman Xi and his officials, May You bless them with heavenly wisdom to govern China. Give them especially a heart “to act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly” (Micah 6:8) with you. May You raise up Christian officials round him to help him make righteous decisions, according to the heart of God, to bring peace and blessings to Taiwan, to mainland China, and to the rest of the world. We ask You to keep Chairman Xi strong and healthy in daily administration work. We also pray that God grant President Xi courage and wisdom to tackle corruption in the government.
God, give him a gentle, patient, calm and stable heart to face the issue of China-US trade. Because he values the peaceful relationship between both countries above all, God will have mercy toward to China, and bless China and turn things around.
Pray for Prime Minister Netanyahu:
Pray for President Putin
Pray for Seven Mountains
[Background: The 7 Mountain Strategy is a strategy for Christians to bring about the transformation of society in accordance with the values of the Kingdom of God. Transforming urban countries by changing the seven most important areas that affect society and culture. Among them, the “Seven Great Mountains” are the seven major areas. Advocates believe that when on the “Seven Great Mountains” Christians can rise, exert influence, or even become leaders, they can change society. The seven major mountains are: Art Entertainment / Business / Religion / Media / Education / Family / Government. For more information on the 7 mountain strategy, please see the video by Rober Heidler。We will take turns to pray for these seven hills in these 40 days. (Source:Kingdom Prayer Network)]
[Background: In the past, the American Evangelical Church, as well as the majority of churches around the world, did not encourage believers to participate in politics, which gave Satanism, Homo group and Freemasonry, opportunity to sneak in to control political field and the judiciary, and succeeded in control and manipulate national laws and legislation and the entire national policies, to the point even the church is forced to recognize the legalization of gay marriage, and prohibits Christians from entering the campus and public places for legal religious practices – such as praying on campus, Bible study, evangelism, and even praying in the sport events are prohibited. In addition, church pastors are not allowed to refuse to marry gay or lesbian on the basis of their beliefs. As a result, Christian churches today cannot affect and balance the direction of the country and society from going toward moral corruption. These are the results of church in the past failed to capture the opportunity to invest and participate in seven major realm to bring about transformation.
Therefore, the country must be transformed, the church must rise up, to equip saints, enter into the work places on the seven mountains and possess the land. The church must equip people with talents to enter into seven mountains of government, business, family, education, media, and art to pray and to transform and testify the gospel.
- The workplace is also a threshing floor: Ask God to raise Christians in the workplace, to pray and testify the gospel, bring God’s presence and transformation into the workplace. In the name of the Lord, God’s presence will fill the workplace, and God’s will will to be done in the workplace, as it is in heaven, ask the Holy Spirit to fill and anoint the five-fold ministry in the workplace.
- The church is in the workplace: In the name of the Lord, the church must fully support and train believers in their fields of expertise, such as politics, business, entertainment, media, economics and the arts. To be the fisher of man like Jesus, and participate in pastoral teaching, to train disciples, to equip the saints, everyone do their part, and build up the body of Christ.
- Leaders from seven professional fields work together as one: Ask God to give the heart of Jesus Christ to spiritual leaders in all fields of expertise around the world, not take side, not be greedy and vain, and be humble, to support each other, to complete the commission of the Father in agreement. Ask God to raise up apostles in the workplace, open the door to social transformation and transferring of wealth, and circulate the resources of the kingdom of God, so that the kingdom of God can be extended to all parts of the world.
- Establish prayer altars and fire walls everywhere: Ask God to raise prayer warriors that can stand in the gap of the family, the workplace, the city, and the nations, faithfully to watch and pray until you see the glory of God fills the earth. Calling the watchmen who gives reverence to Your name and obey Your commands, watch and pray day and night, and blow the trumpet, so that they can issue a warning when the enemy is attacking, so that the body of Christ can unite against these attacks. Let the sound of watchman never cease.
- Establish a global network of prayers: Ask God to reveal and inspire the prayer altars around the world, prayer fire walls and prayer networks, to be willing to connect with each other, and build a global network of prayers that unite the prayer army of the kingdom of God and consolidate and concentrate firepower. To align with God, in accordance with the will of God, bring the revival to the whole earth, and bring the harvest of the whole earth.

Continue to Pray for the Canadian Mountain Fire
[NEWS: According to Canadian broadcast, the wild fires in the Province of British Columbia have spread. The Canadian military servicemen have joined force with the firefighters to help extinguish the 556 wildfires especially in the remote areas of British Columbia. On August 16th, the government has declared a state of emergency. Up to August 15th, there were 77 evacuation orders, affecting approximately 22,000 people and 11,000 homes. From the Pacific coast to the 3 provinces on the Prairies covering 2,300 kilometers including Winnipeg are covered with heavy smoke.

The Province of British Columbia has requested aid from the federal government on the 13th. 200 military servicemen and planes have been deployed to aid with extinguishing the fires.]
Exodus 19:18 “Mount Zion was covered with smoke, because the Lord descended on it in fire. The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, and the whole mountain trembled violently.”
You have descended on the mountains in fire and have trembled the mountains in Canada. You tremble the hearts of the people with Your majestic glory! We pray that You give the people hearts to fear You and cause the Canadian people and governments to tremble in the wild fires.

Pray For Israel
Pray for overseas Jews to immigrate to Israel / Aliyah
[Background: Currently, if people with Jewish blood wish to immigrate to Israel, they would first submit an application to the Department of Interior. After that their application will be turned over to the Jewish Agency (the Aliyah Department). This agency would then do further background check including Goggle search for personal files. Some of such effort can result in reports with more than 200 pages. If a person is found to be a Messianic Jew or is affiliated with Christianity, this person’s application will be automatically rejected. Such practice has been criticized and noted by the US State Department’s annual report: Freedom of Religion Report. The report raised concern that this practice is only against Christianity and not against other religions such as Reform Judaism, atheism, Buddhism, Christian Science, or Hinduism. (The above news came from “Jerusalem Post.”)]
We ask You to overturn current Israel immigration policy against Messianic Jews.
- According to Your timing, call Your people around the world to return to their homeland. Grant them grace to hear Your call. “In that day the Lord will extend his hand yet a second time to recover the remnant that remains of his people, from Assyria, from Egypt, from Pathros, from Cush, from Elam, from Shinar, from Hamath, and from the coast lands of the sea. He will raise a signal for the nations and will assemble the banished of Israel, and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. (Isaiah 11:11-12)
- We ask You to release millions of Jews in America to return to their homeland. For those in Europe, we ask You to stir their heart for Aliyah in light of rampant anti-Semitism. For those in South Africa, we ask You to stir them up for Aliyah in light of recent political and economics shakings. “By the waters of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion. How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land?” (Psalm 137: 1, 4)
- We ask You to strengthen new immigrants with Your joy. Help them learn Hebrew, find a way to support their family and integrate into society.
- Raise up people to help Jews from the nations to return to their homeland. “Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I will lift up my hand to the nations, and raise my signal to the peoples; and they shall bring your sons in their arms, and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders.” (Isaiah 49:22)
Abba Father, in the name of Jesus we declare:

Praying for the turmoil of Gaza-the border。
[In the news: 8/9 Hamas fired more than 150 rockets into the Israeli Gaza border residential areas; there were some injuries in Israel. Israel also retaliated with rockets at 140 Hamas’ military locations in Gaza. The long-term cease-fire negotiations between the two sides was interrupted. Hamas said the move was in retaliation for Israel’s assassination of its members and the blockade of the Gaza Strip. Iran has expressed its support and will do everything in its power to support Palestinian resistance to Israel. The Israeli military said that the Hamas attack on Israel is still under Iranian manipulation. Israel does not rule out retaliation against Iran.
At least 150 rockets have fallen into Israel, and the country’s “Iron Dome” anti-missile system has intercepted at least 11 incoming rockets. Although the interception rate is much lower than expected, the Israeli military said it’s big. Some rockets have fallen into the open space, so the iron scorpion anti-missile system will not intercept these targets. ]
- Pray for the Israeli residents of the Gaza border and nearby: May God show His mercy upon the lives of the Israelites on the Gaza border and minimize the disaster.
- Pray for the Muslim people in Gaza: Ask God’s salvation to come to the innocent people, and let them know the one true God of the supremacy.
- Pray for the Israeli government: Pray for God to pray for the humble spirit, touch the heart of Netanyahu, and lead the people of the country to fast and pray to seek the king of Joshua, as in 20 Chronicles of the Chronicles, to lead all Israel together. To seek God’s help and salvation, to give wisdom and peace to the Israeli government, to immediately stop Hamas attacks and prevent the expansion of war.
- Ask God to awaken the people of Gaza to rise up against Hamas – one of the evil leaders who control Gaza.
- Ask God to cutoff the connection of the dark power between Hamas and Iran.
Pray For Iran – Israel’s Greatest Enemy
[Background: The state of Iran is still the archenemy of Israel, which also exert control over the Hezbollah, the Assad regime in Syria and Hamas, (and a few others). Iran is beginning a major naval exercise in the Strait of Hormuz, This channel controls access to the Persian Gulf and affects many countries outside Iran. This prompted a strong reaction between the United States and Israel. At the same time, internal turmoil is growing in Iran due to economic problems and people’s protest riots over the regime.
In addition, when the US restarted its economic sanctions against Iran, its Iranian national currency depreciated sharply and prices soared. However, the economic turmoil has also affected the brothers and sisters of the Iranian church. The economic materials are very scarce and it is difficult to spend the day. Please pray for them. ]
We pray that God will
- Keep Israel alert and vigilant, give them wisdom: God keep Israel alert and vigilant, and respond prudently to each action that Iran is taking. Grant wisdom to Israeli and American military leaders, so that they would be able to discern and respond sensibly to what Iran is doing and expressing in public. (Proverbs 8:14-16)
- Shake the political leadership of Iran. Break the bow of Elam: according to God’s promise, may the bow of Elam be broken, and the kings and princes be destroyed. (Jeremiah 49:35, 38)
- Break the links of Iran with Hezbollah and Hamas: May the Lord use internal uprisings to break the links of Iran with Hezbollah and Hamas.
- Raising up churches in Iran: use the thriving church in Iran to cause the nation to steer away from the current evil path. (II Chronicle 7:14).
- Awaken the people: the people will not be deceived by the evil government, they will stand up and make their voices be heard and demand the changes be made in the leadership of the government, to govern the nation with truth and righteousness, so the life of the people will be in peace and safety.
- Strengthens the Christian brothers and sisters in Iran: Lord, we pray that the peace that transcends all understanding and pure joy in times of trials will fill them up with hope through the Holy Spirit. Cause them to know that God is sovereign and is in full control. He is in the process of shaking, demolishing and restraining. God is establishing for Himself His throne and stronghold in Iran. Pray that God supernaturally meets both the spiritual and physical needs of the brothers and sisters in Iran according to His faithfulness.
