Invite Aboriginal and global Christians to participate in 40-day or 21-day global fasting prayers
Invite Aboriginal and global Christians to participate in the following global fasting prayers in accordance with God’s will
- 40 days fasting prayer 1/1/2019-2/9/2019
- 21 days fasting prayer 1/21/2019 – 2/9/2019
Dear Intercession Warrior,
Through the 40 days Global fasting prayers from August 1st to September 9th, 2018, God united more than one hundred countries, with one heart and one mind, and prayed for the global revival and the salvation of the soul. After the 40-day fasting prayer, the Holy Spirit established a global 24/7 prayer wall, because we believe that if we continue to connect Christians globally through prayers, it will bring the greater work of the Holy Spirit to the nations and take back lost ground.
In the last 40 days of fasting prayer, we experienced God’s timely response to our prayers as recorded in the August Global 40-Day Fasting Prayer Testimonies Collection. In particular, more than 100 countries around the world stood together with Taiwan and prayed for a referendum in Taiwan. Thank God for hearing our prayers. The result of the referendum was: more than 7 million votes in support of the monogamous marriage system to turn around the previous legalized same-sex marriage, and was scheduled to be implemented early this year. Now it is being re-legislated. No country in the world had turned a legislated same-sex marriage around. It is evident that when the body of Christ around the world exerts a unity of prayer, there is enough power for God to help them resist the invasion of the enemy and to uproot the stronghold of the enemy, bringing about the transformation of the country. Although we still have many prayers waiting to be fulfilled, we believe that God is faithful, as stated in 1 John 5:14-15: “This is the confidence we have in approaching God; that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us- whatever we ask- we know that we have what we asked of him.”
Recently we sensed there will be a great shaking in 2019, especially in the United States and around the world. God once again pressed intercessors into a global 40 days of fasting prayer, which started at the beginning of 2019 to continue to battle to the end, receiving the victorious power of God’s glory to engage in many unpredictable crises lurking in the world to persist in prayer until we see the full salvation of God come to the world.
The world is facing a critical moment of life and death: in 2019, there are many unpredictable crises lurking the entire world, such as:
- Potential global disaster crisis: nuclear massacre, bio-chemical terrorism, cyber terrorism, the EU in political turmoil, and the global financial crisis. Persecution faced by Christians around the world is rising at its all time high in modern history. The crisis of losing our young adults and children from the serious attack and temptation of drugs, online pornography, and sexual education in various countries has seriously tarnished the next generation; paganism entered the campus and captured many of the young people and children. The church lacks the active evangelism to young people and children, now facing the crisis of losing young people and the church dying off because of aging.
- Islamist forces try to globalized Islam: The President of Libya declared: “Allah wants to make Islam a complete victory in Europe.” Now Islamic forces have manipulated many European countries. In Asia, the Taiwan government is planning to build the largest mosque in Asia. Islams believe this is the time for them to formally and fully invade the Chinese.
Now is the time for aborigines of the nations and all the Christians to wake up! Let us come together to fast and pray and call upon God to intervene in all situations in 2019. Especially the revival of the aborigines around the country which will activate the destiny of many nations. So we invite Christians and Aboriginal people around the world to participate in this 40-day fasting prayer (1/1 – 2/9).
At a conference held in Albuquerque, New Mexico 1975, Reverend Billy Graham said to Native American Christian leaders, “You are a sleeping giant, the original Americans. You are now awakening. When You are awake, you will be the greatest evangelist, and become a spiritual superpower in this country that could change not only America but the world.” Billy Graham died on February 21, 2018. His death has activated many evangelists to go into the next step of bringing back all souls outside the sheepfold in the last days.
First Nations are the gatekeepers and steward God has chosen to guard the Land. But when they were forced out of their lands and their roles as gatekeepers were suppressed, the land became contaminated and cursed.
March 8, 1782, 96 Delaware First Nation Christians (who were evangelized by the Moravian) were massacred by Americans at the Moravian missionary village of Gnadenhutten, shedding much innocent blood in this land. Due to the wound of that massacre, First Nations were deceived by the darkness thus falsely believed that Jesus is an oppressive god. This event is considered “a stain on the frontier character that time cannot wash away.”
Battle of the Thames took place on October 5th, 1813 at Moravian town, Shawnee leader Tecumseh was killed by William Henry Harrison and drove away Tenskwatawa (prophet) since then the prophets of first nation had been hiding in darkness.
On Dec., 8th 2018, during the Hanukkah, at Egg Harbor, NJ, one of the descendants of William Henry Harrison showed up at a Homecoming gathering and to our surprise, she revealed her heart’s desire to repent for her ancestor before us. What happened afterward was phenomenal. Many young first nations were caught by the power of Holy Spirit and rose up to share, to sing, to dance, and to proclaim.
First Nation, it is time to wake up for the end time is near. God is zealous for the sleeping giant to wake up. It is time to pray and intercede for the gatekeepers of the land. God had given the First Nation a unique position and when they stand in stewardship, the land will be healed and revival will break out.
We cordially invite all the First Nations to join us from 1/1 to 2/9 for the 40 days fasting prayer, because when the First Nation rises up and takes up the authority of prayer God has given them and prays together with the global Christians, we will see global revival in this land entering into destiny!
If you can’t participate in the 40-day fasting prayer from 1/1 and need more time to prepare and mobilize more Christians to pray, you can choose the global 21-day fasting prayer from 1/20/2019 – 2/9/2019.

Cleansing And Covering Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father, I ________ (put your name in it) come to the throne of grace, through the blood of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit to receive Your abundant grace and mercy.

Cleanse me from all the defilement of the world. Sanctify me and my family line of any unrighteousness with the blood of Jesus. Now by my own will, I choose to forgive everyone that has offended me or hurt me. I release them into the freedom of my forgiveness. I also release them from the debts they might owe me. I now cast all my burden to You. Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light. I now put on the armor of God that You have given me and gird myself with the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the helmet of salvation, the shield of faith, and the sword of the Spirit and my feet fitted with the gospel of peace, so that I can pray and intercede in the Holy Spirit by Your mighty power and now stand firm.

The glory of God will fill the entire Europe! In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,
We pray in the holy name of Jesus Christ, Amen!

Pray for the Growing Refugee Crisis in Europe
[ Current affairs : Many riot protests erupted in many European countries, the troublesome European refugee problem, the integration of local people and refugees, etc., are testing the EU government’s ability to resolve the issue and their endurance. Although the UN General Assembly adopted the “Global Refugee Contract” on December 17, last year, nearly 170 countries responded to support asylum-seekers, but this task is extremely difficult.
The Global Refugee Contract sets four goals: to alleviate pressure on host countries that accept large numbers of refugees; to strengthen the self-reliance of refugees; to expand access to refugee problems through third countries or other resettlement procedures; and to support the safe and dignified return of refugees to countries of origin.
According to United Nations statistics, half of the European refugees are under the age of 18, 10 countries have accepted two-thirds of the world’s refugees, and Turkey has accepted 3.5 million refugees, accounting for a record total of 21.3 million refugees worldwide.
Reuters reported in depth on January 11, that Syrian refugees on the Greek islands in the Aegean Sea were repatriated to Turkey and the program were literally not functional. The living conditions of the refugees were really bad and the European apportionment system for asylum seekers was now at a standstill. The EU countries Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, as well as the United States and Brazil, have opted out of the Global Refugee Contract. 】

Human Trafficking and Migrant Trafficking are Organized Crime
Human trafficking is known as ‘modern day slavery’. There’s an estimated 45+ million slaves existing world wide. It is wickedly structured encompassing broad range of organized criminal activities. Traffickers have developed a multibillion-dollar industry by exploiting those forced or willing to migrate. For this reason, Migrant Trafficking is identified as one of the fastest-growing organized criminal enterprises.
Human trafficking is touted as the third most profitable business after Drug Trafficking and Arms Trade, with an estimated of $32 billion per year. In fact, drug trafficking and Human trafficking are often intertwined, using the same people and routes into a country.
Traffickers use terroristic threats to control the migrants by threatening their deportation, life, violent threats against their families at home countries. Money laundering through forced labor, sex industries and drug trades.
Types of exploitation:
- Sex Slavery – The most prevalent form of human trafficking through recruitment, abduction, deception to transport of people into the international sex industry. Sex slavery involves males and females, both adults and children, and constitutes an estimated 58% of all trafficking activities. (Ex. 21:16)It consists of various types of servitude, including forced prostitution, pornography, child sex rings, sex-related occupations such as dancers and models. Forced prostitution is a form of employment.
- Witchcraft Ritual Slavery – Countries like India, Nepal, and Ghana. Nigeria (Africa) practice a form of human trafficking control known as Ritual Slavery (religion-based, under oath, witchcraft rituals). Witchcraft ritual is commonly used so slaves are under spell through ritual oath. In Europe, there are an estimated 80,000+ Ritual Slaves. (2 Kings 17:17)
- Forced Labor, modern day forced labor mostly started with Debt Bondage, the enslavement of people for unpaid debts and is one of the most common forms of forced labor.

- Children Slavery, are often sold or sent to areas with the promise of a better life but instead subject to various forms of exploitation. Domestic servitude places ‘extra children’ (children from excessively large families) into domestic service.

Sometimes they become ‘street children slaves’ and are used for prostitution, theft, begging, or the drug trade, some also trafficked into military services as soldiers and experience armed combat at very young ages.
- Organ Trafficking – the most recent highly controversial occurrence involving trafficking of human organs and fetuses in use of the cosmetics and drug industry. The internet has been used as a source for the organ donors and recipients of organ trafficking, whether legal or not.
Trafficking prevention and control: Human trafficking is a leading trans-national crime that requires international cooperation. It often creates trans-national routes for transporting migrant slaves who are driven by unfavorable living conditions to seek the services of smugglers or smuggling ring.
Pray for Malaysian Aborigines
[ Historical background : There are many indigenous groups in Malaysia. The indigenous people of East Malaysia live in Sarawak and Sabah. In the native of West Malaysia, Orang Asli is one of the few non-Malays in Peninsular Malaysia. The original indigenous people who came here, are called the peninsula aborigines. They are the first ethnic groups to live in the Malay Peninsula. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the Oran Yasli were often captured by coastal residents and traded as slaves. This forced the peninsula aborigines to relocate to higher mountains and deeper forests.
The peninsula aborigines are divided into three categories, namely the small black Negrito, Semoi and the original Malay Proto-Malay. These three categories can be further divided into about 19 tribes. Its population is about 200,000, accounting for about 0.85% of the total population. Most Aboriginal people have retained their tribal identity to date, because of their isolation. About 40% of the peninsula aborigines still live in the forest, and 60% live in towns and villages on the edge of the forest. Most peninsula aborigines rely on hunting, foraging, farming and occasional odd jobs. Perhaps the reason for the small number of people is that Malaysians generally do not pay attention to this group. In fact, they are also the most neglected minority among the whole people. It can be said that they are more neglected than the indigenous people of East Malaysia.
The Malaysian Aboriginal Decree: The Aboriginal Peoples Act, enacted in 1954 and amended in 1974, is a decree specifically designed for the definition and authority of Indigenous Peoples (including Indigenous Peoples of the Peninsula). Their main purpose is to protect them from the indoctrination of communism. Unfortunately, fifty years later, their welfare has not improved much. The church needs to invest time and energy to improve the socio-economic development of the aborigines.
Ownership to the land: According to the Malaysian Human Rights Commission’s Suhakam (Human Rights Commission of Malaysia ) in 2003, only 15% of the peninsula’s inhabited areas are classified as peninsula’s aboriginal reservation, and only 0.5% of the peninsula’s aboriginal population has the ownership of their land. As a result, the peninsula aborigines were forced to relocate and resettle in order to make way for development projects and was not fairly compensated. The West Malaysian aborigines were displaced and unable to help themselves. Today, many Aboriginal social activists and human rights fighters have come forward to fight for the autonomy to regain their destiny.
Below poverty line: 77% of the Aboriginal communities are below the poverty line, with monthly income of RM500 or less, 35% of the poverty line, with monthly income of less than RM250. The entire community has no basic facilities such as water, electricity and clinics. Since the school greatly discriminate against the peninsula aborigines, only 6% of the peninsula aborigines completed secondary education, the drop out rate from school for the children is very high.
Peninsula aboriginal Christians: About 10% of the peninsula aborigines are Christians and there are churches throughout the Aboriginal area. In order to obtain better welfare, the peninsula Aboriginal people became the target of the Islamic Islamic missionary movement and almost absorbed the entire Aboriginal community of the peninsula.
Coming election: Cameron Highlands is the federal constituency in Malaysia Pahang, because of corruption involving members of Congress in the election last year, the result of the election was declared invalid, another election will be held on January 26, 2019. Most voters in this constituency are Aboriginal peninsulas who are extremely simple and do not understand elections. We pray that God will watch over the re-election in the Cameron Highlands constituency on 1/26, so it will be done smoothly and the peninsula aborigines will cast their votes wisely, and choose a member who really cares for their rights. ]
