Connection: From Atlantic to Pacific Ocean

The world’s first Transcontinental Railroad was named “Pacific Railroad”, a total length of 1912 miles (3077 km), built between 1863 and 1869, to connect with what was built in the east. Union Pacific Railroad: Omaha Nebraska/Council Bluffs, Iowa, to finally able to go to Northern California’s San Francisco Bay and Southern California ports (Oakland Long) Wharf), and straight to the Pacific Ocean.

May 10, 2019 – Celebrating the 150th anniversary of the convergence of the East and West

On May 10th, 2019, USA 150th anniversary, there will be a celebration especially for this event.

Due to harsh and difficult landscape of Utah, Utah became uncultured land. Mormonism was a cult developed out of Christianity, started from the East Coast, but was driven away from the east coast and ended up in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is believed to be the reason why Salt Lake City became the home base for Mormonism, the “Christian Latter-day Saints Church.”

Joseph Smith was the founder of Mormonism, succeeded by Brigham Young after his death. He led the believers to settle there in 1847. Most people are no strangers to this history background, but few know that Brigham Young and the Mormon congregation, as well as many Chinese who immigrated from China to the United States was the main source of labor for the building of the Union Pacific Railway from east to west.

The Union Pacific Railway across Nebraska and Wyoming was built by the soldiers of Union Confederate, (the Southern Army that did not support the abolition of slavery in the United States) plus the Brigham Young Mormon who had just moved to Utah. It was about the same time in China (Tian dynasty) because of the turmoil of the boxer movement, people’s lives were difficult, so tens of thousands of Chinese in Guangdong migrated to the United States to make a living. They were the main labour for Pacific Railroad from west to east.

With their bare hands and perseverance, with simple tools, dragged and pulled with horses and animals, they laid every inch of the railroad under the supervision of engineers, they built countless bridges and excavating caves. At that time, many people went to the west for the gold rush. No one was willing to do these hard work. Therefore, the hard labor from China became really very important and precious for the construction of this railway.

These Chinese were short in statue, originally the employers (Charles Crocker) were not optimistic in hiring them, but after a few days of trial run, they discovered that the perseverance and potential of these Chinese people were actually the best choice.

During the most difficult time of snow and ice and the harsh area of Sierra Nevada, the Chinese from the warm climate Guangdong made tremendous breakthroughs in the difficulties. But there was no mention of the contribution of the Chinese people, no record to recognize and honor the price they paid. Because there was no photo record, people had to rely on drawings from impression to share and express the events.

Utah” no longer “Neglect”

Today, 150 years later, although many things have changed, but some remain unchanged.

On May 10 this year, the Utah government decided to invite the descendants of the Chinese people who built the railways. Especially to honor the Chinese people’s efforts in the past. They will no longer ignore the human rights due to racial discrimination. Not to allow the neglect and denial of the fact of the blood sweat and tears of the hard-working Chinese.

At this moment, the role of the Chinese is still to build the railroad, and to remove the stubborn stones to make a path from mountains and valleys, so that great number of the people from all nation can return to the Lord.

In the past, the Chinese connect the East and West railroads in the United States. Today’s Chinese people is still taking steps to connect the East and the West, from Atlantic to Pacific Ocean. As Pastor Chuck Pierce once declared, the Western saints were willing to give the keys to the gospel to the Christians of the East (especially the Chinese), so the East can lead, and the West will follow.

As Isaiah 62:10, as described, “When you pass through the door, prepare the way for the people; build a avenue, build stones, and erect a banner for all nations,

This gathering is organized by Pastor Ed Watts, who shared an interesting story. Pastor Ed Watts recently discovered that his great-grandfather was the pioneer of the earliest settler of Mormons. He found the graves of his great-grandfather in Salt Lake City, Utah. Aside from the surprisingly found, God showed him as his ancestors was the leader in setting up the cult. Maybe today God will use him again to be a pioneer to reverse the mistakes of the past. He also mentioned that the Utah state government will officially invite Chinese to participate in this celebration. Because God will once again use  Chinese to do the work of restoration, to pave the way and be a midwife for the re-birth.

Yes, now is the time for the Chinese to take on the last baton to finish the race. Let us continue to press forward on this day of celebration! Amen.

(By Pastor David Peng USA, New Jersey)

Day 1 – Sheikhs and Imams 6 May
A sheikh is the leader of a community, village, town or tribe. An imam is the leader of a mosque. They are influential people and usually exert much influence over their communities. You may have read of sheikhs or imams who became Jesus-followers, sometimes secretly, and who started to preach the gospel radically and with great effect? One such example was the leader of an Imam Training School. Over a period of three weeks, Jesus appeared to him 19 times! He was converted and shared his new faith with his students, many of whom also became Christians and went out to spread the gospel!


  • For more sheikhs and imams to meet Jesus, especially radically Islamic ones.
  • That they will proclaim Christ as the only Saviour, with the same intensity as they preached when they were Muslim.

Day 2 – Turkmenistan, Central Asia 7 May
Turkmenistan is a country with great oil and gas reserves, but it is one of the most isolated and consolidated authoritarian regimes in the world. It lacks basic freedoms, judicial independence, accountable institutions, and it discriminates against ethnic minorities. Turkmenistan’s dictator seeks to control every aspect of life. The government justifies its tough methods by saying that they are attempting to prevent the escalation of radical Islam and avoid security threats posed by the Taliban and the Islamic State (Daesh). Though Turkmenistan has a persecution ranking of only 19, the country is still one of the world’s most oppressive regimes. Christians are often labelled as ‘extremists’, and they face persecution from authorities and local communities. Population: 5,231,000; Chief of State: President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow; Evangelical Christians: 0.1%; Dominant Religion: Sunni Islam; Persecution Ranking: 19th; Life Expectancy: 69.78 Years; Literacy Rate: 98.8%; Population Below Poverty Line: 30%; Refugees Living in Turkmenistan: 7,546; Pray4Turkmenistan Facebook Page


  • There are very few registered house churches in this nation, but we praise God that the Church continues to grow! Pray for registered house churches that have a vision to expand, and bless those who seek to register new house churches successfully (Isaiah 43:11).
  • According to Human Rights Watch, “Turkmenistan is one of the most repressive countries in the world”. Pray for an end to the totalitarian regime of President Berdimuhamedov (Psalm 75:7).
  • The government refuses to acknowledge its economic crisis, unemployment is now at 50%, and many people experience food and gas shortages (2 Corinthians 4:16-18).
  • Pray that many people will become aware of their spiritual poverty and become hungry for God in these uncertain and seemingly bleak times (Matthew 5:6).

Day 3 – Human disaster in Yemen 8 May
Sometimes situations arise where there are seemingly no answers. Yemen is such a case. Many describe what is happening in Yemen as the biggest humanitarian disaster of our time: War, famine, illness, lack of basic human needs, lack of education for children, the psychological devastation of war, poverty, and the lack of a peace process, etc. Constant bombings from the Saudi-coalition, and fighting among rival groups in this nation, kill or maim many citizens. The devil is the destroyer of human lives. We need to see the forces that lay behind what is visible, resist the evil one and cry to God for mercy. When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him. (Isaiah 59:19b).


  • For intervention by the international community into Yemen’s political situation.
  • Yemen, traditionally a nation very closed to the gospel, has a small group of believers who are among the few that have ‘good news’ to share in an otherwise desperate situation. One believer said, “Our faith is growing because, as Christians, we seem to have lost our fear. Through the crisis and the war, God has empowered us to share the gospel wherever we are”. Pray for the small group of Yemeni believers who are boldly attempting to share their hope in Christ.
  • Pray that in spite of all the suffering and hardship, Yemenis will be open to hear about the love of God and the salvation that is in Jesus Christ.
  • For humanitarian aid – food, clothes, education, medical services, trauma counselling services, etc.


Day 4 – The Hausa in Nigeria 9 May 】The Druze are a unique ethnic and religious group of 1,5 million people who live primarily in four countries: Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Israel. The Druze departed from Islam in the 11th Century. They developed a religion that combines doctrines from various other religions. They are a notoriously secretive and close-knit community, sceptical of outsiders. The Druze people group has endured 74 genocides since forming a separate religious group in 1009. They do not proselytise, so the only way to become a Druze is to be born into a family of two Druze parents.


  • Pray for believers in southern Nigeria to bring the gospel to Hausa households more effectively.
  • Pray for the few believers among the Hausa to be fruitful in loving their families and sharing Bible stories.
  • The Hausa have strategic influence in several nations. Ask God for a gospel movement among this dear people to spill over in God’s blessing to many neighbouring peoples.
  • Pray for peace and the evils of Boko Haram to multiply gospel opportunities.Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name. (Romans 1:5).

Day 5 – Salvation… and increasing persecution 10 May
While increasing numbers of Muslims are becoming followers of Jesus, persecution against Christians is still severe, and in some places, even worse than ever. Most Muslims that become followers of Jesus experience immediate hostility, rejection and death threats. Very often, they are killed or are forced to flee or return to Islam. A friend told me a while ago, how he recently led three young men to the Lord in separate incidences. Within a few weeks, all three were killed! Losing one’s family also means losing one’s support during times of sickness or personal crisis.


  • For the salvation of whole families and extended relatives. When whole families become followers of Jesus, their chance of survival is much bigger.
  • For more safe houses for Christians that have to flee for their lives.
  • That new believers, who are chased away by their families, will find new friends, jobs and lodging amongst Christians, and that the Church will be their new family.

Day 6 – Spiritual awakening among the Druze 11 May
The Druze are a unique ethnic and religious group of 1,5 million people who live primarily in four countries: Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Israel. The Druze departed from Islam in the 11th Century. They developed a religion that combines doctrines from various other religions. They are a notoriously secretive and close-knit community, sceptical of outsiders. The Druze people group has endured 74 genocides since forming a separate religious group in 1009. They do not proselytise, so the only way to become a Druze is to be born into a family of two Druze parents.


  • The Church among the Druze is still very young and much discipling is needed. Pray for strong Spirit-filled leaders to lead the Church among the Druze.
  • Pray for missionaries and Druze believers to be faithful and wise witnesses as they work in situations where it is difficult and dangerous to acknowledge that one is a believer. Pray for them to have wisdom and joy.
  • Pray for resources. The Druze believers are working with very little by way of resources. They are a poor, oppressed and neglected people group. Pray for God’s provision of food, clothing and basic resources so that they can minister to others without fear for the wellbeing of their own families.

Day 7 – Justice and imprisonment 12 May
Many Christians in Muslim-majority nations are imprisoned or have court cases against them. They are accused of criminal behaviour, espionage, being a threat to peace in the country and many other accusations. The truth is that there is often a ploy to put Christians into prison to force them to become Muslims, or to put pressure on Muslim background believers to recant and become Muslim again. Countries like Sudan, Iran, Pakistan, Indonesia and Algeria are often in the news for imprisonment of Christians. Injustice and imprisonments are however not limited to these nations.


  • For persecuted and imprisoned Christians to stand firm and not deny Christ.
  • For judges in court cases to be guided by the Holy Spirit
  • For the families of persecuted men and women that are falsely accused.
  • Pray that God will open doors inside prisons for Christians to share the gospel, and that He will prepare the hearts of other prisoners to receive the gospel.

Pray For Church

Repent for the Complacency and Indifference of the Church

  • 1 John 2:15-16   Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.  For everything in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life–comes not from the Father but from the world.

We gradually lost the mind of suffering for the Lord, tempted and drawn by of the lusts of the flesh, and compromised to the world, there is no difference in our speech or acts with the secular.

Related Events and Prayer Background

Shootings at University of North Carolina (UNCC), Charlotte and Jewish Synagogue at Poway, California

Event: April 30, 2019 The University of North Carolina campus was on lockdown after a shooting that left at least two dead.

Matthew 5:21-22 ‘You have heard that our ancestors were told, “You must not murder. If you commit murder, you are subject to judgment.” But I say, if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell.’

Two people were killed and four others injured (2 are critically injured) when a shooter opened fire in a classroom building at UNCC. Campus police disarmed and apprehended the suspect, Trystan A. Terrell, 22, a former student shot with a handgun in a classroom. According to his grandfather, he was never interested in guns.

A campus lockdown stretched late into the night at a school of more than 26,500 students, and university officials postponed final exams, which had been scheduled to begin on Thursday.

As of today, the motive of the shooting is still under investigations.

On last Saturday, another shooting took place at a synagogue at Poway, California with 1 dead and 3 injured. The shooter was 19 years old John T. Earnest, who has no criminal record, carried out the shooting with a rifle.  (Mat 5:21-22)

Democrats set to investigate Attorney General William Barr

Event: Democrat Senators voiced to investigate AG Barr’s recent release of Special Counsel Mueller’s Report.  (Pro. 12:20)

  • Proverbs 12:20 ‘Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, but counselors of peace have joy.’
  • Psalm 62:3 ’How long will you assail a man, that you may murder him, all of you, like a learning wall, like a tottering fence?
  • Proverbs 6:14 ’Who with perversity in his heart continually devises evil, who spreaed strife.’
  • Hosea 7:6 ‘For their hearts are like an over as they approach their plotting; their anger smolders all night, in the morning it burns like a flaming fire.’
  • Zechariah 8:17 ‘Also let none of you devise evil in your hearts against another, and do not love perjury; for all these are what I hate.’ Declares the Lored.

Democrats newest strategies apart from investigating President Trump is to investigate AG William Barr. Barr was former Attorney General in 1991-1993. AG Barr has summed up his conclusive report on Special Counsel Mueller’s report. Democrats has turned down Barr’s conclusion, asking for a brand new investigation in place of  Muller’s. Out of Democrats own rule book: Why AG Barr had not recused himself from overseeing the Special Counsel’s investigation, whether his actions with respect to the release of the report complied with Department of Justice policies and practices, and whether he has demonstrated sufficient impartiality to continue overseeing the fourteen criminal matters related to the Special Counsel’s investigation that were referred principally to other components of the Dept. of Justice and the FBI.

They believed AG Barr held a press conference before releasing his four-page summary on Muller’s finding: was to assert his own views regarding the report well before releasing the redacted report. His statements at the press conference warranted serious scrutiny as to whether they were proper and consistent with Justice Dept. policies and practices. (Psa 62:3)

They believed News reports indicated that AG Barr has granted President’s personal lawyers access to review the full redacted report for two days before providing the redacted reports to Congress and the public. (Prov. 6:14)

Democrat Senators who have requested investigation are: (Hosea 7:6)

  • Mazie Hirona (HI), Richard Blumenthal (CT),
  • Kamala Harris (CA), Edward Markey (MA),
  • Tom Udall (NM), Ron Wyden (OR),
  • Sheldon Whitehouse (RI), Patty Murray (WA),
  • Cory Booker (NJ), Jack Reed (RI),
  • Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) and Amy Klobuchar (MN).

Obviously, Democrats are igniting wildfire the best they can, to destroy, kill and steal the peace and prosperity of the nation, especially ruining the current administration before the 2020 Election. (Zec. 8:17)】

Pray for Israel: Counting of the Omer – From Passover to Pentecost

Current Event 1: Thanksgiving for the Passover Snow – On 4/21, snow fell on Mount Hermon during Passover for the first time in 22 years. Snowfall was also reported in towns in the Golan Heights. In addition, the Sea of Galilee, Israel’s main natural source of water, has risen more than 3.4 meters.

Current Event 2: Thanksgiving for the Passover Honey Harvest – After a five year decline of honey production in Israel, the heavy rains and large range of flower blooms this year will bring the honey production up to 3,800 tons, 27% more than last year.

Background: The period between Passover and Pentecost is called the “Counting of the Omer”. The Hebrew word “omer” means “sheaf”. During this period of 50 days, Israel offered firstfruits to God.

  • Leviticus 23:15-16 “From the day after the Sabbath, the day you brought the sheaf [omer] of the wave offering, count off seven full weeks. Count off fifty days up to the day after the seventh Sabbath, and then present an offering of new grain to the Lord.” 
This year, the Counting the Omer is from 4/20 to 6/9. In these 50 days, God’s people count His blessings every day for what God has done. We also look forward to what He will do on Pentecost. May the Holy Spirit of Pentecost pour out mightily upon Israel; let the gospel spread throughout Israel, and let the firstfruits of salvation be dedicated to God.

Pray for Aliah: Anti-Semitism in America at ‘Near-Historic’ High

Event:Current event: American Jews experienced “near-historic levels of anti-Semitism” in 2018, according to an annual report released on 4/30 by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). 

Last year saw the third-highest number of overall anti-Semitic incidents since 1979, despite a decrease from the previous year, according to the audit. The highest number was recorded in 1994 and the second highest in 2017. The report counts cases of assault, harassment and vandalism. Though the 1,879 total incidents in 2018 were a decrease from the 1,986 incidents in 2017; however, the number of anti-Semitic physical assaults more than doubled, to 39 from 17.

According to the report, the last three months of 2018 were “unusually active” in terms of incidents. The shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue “likely drew more attention to anti-Semitic activities,” the ADL said. “We’ve worked hard to push back against anti-Semitism, and succeeded in improving hate crime laws, and yet we continue to experience an alarmingly high number of anti-Semitic acts,” ADL’s national director, Jonathan Greenblatt said. “We unfortunately saw this trend continue into 2019 with the tragic shooting at the Chabad synagogue in Poway.” A gunman killed a woman and wounded three people in an attack at a California synagogue on 4/27.

Anti-Semitic incidents took place across the country, but the states with the largest Jewish populations tended to see a larger number of attacks, including California (341); New York (340); New Jersey (200) and Massachusetts (144). Those four states combined saw more than half the total number of incidents in the US, the ADL said. (Source: Times of Israel 4/30/2019) 

Pray for Mozambique – the Second strong Cyclone in 40 days , 700,000 people affected

Current affairs :The eye of Cyclone Kenneth hit the coast about one hundred miles north of Pemba with 130 mph winds, a Category 4 storm. Nothing so ferocious had ever assaulted the area before, and the people were completely unprepared. 

The wind was less severe in Pemba, but continuing heavy rain is destroying houses and roads—and farms. Pemba’s dirt alleys are rivers of racing muddy water running through tin-roofed bamboo houses. Many floors are just sticky mud. Our own Iris center is flooded, even as we are trying to shelter hundreds of people there. We are doing everything we can to rescue and feed people trying to survive under miserable conditions, but the challenge remains extreme.

We are preparing over 10,000 sandwiches every day to feed people in shelters throughout the city of Pemba. We are hosting 30 Brazilian Search & Rescue members and doing our own house-to-house checks. In the coming days we will fly emergency supplies to Macomia, one of the hardest hit areas in the north, and to the islands along the coast.

Once again we find that Jesus himself is all we really have in this life. He is enough for those of us who love Him, and He will always be our destination and great reward. Please continue to pray with us for miraculous rescues, drier conditions, strength for our team and displaced people, and a deep compassion for souls. ( Please here to know about IRIS center

Pray for Ramadan – 1st Day (5/6) – 7th Day (5/12)

Background:  What is Ramadan

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar during which Muslims fast and pray to get closer to Allah. Muslims believe that the first revelations of the Quran were made to Muhammad during Ramadan. This year, Ramadan is from 5/6 to 6/5.

What does “Islam” mean?

“Islam” means “obedience” and “peace” in Arabic, and followers of Islam are collectively referred to as “Muslim”, meaning “one who surrenders”. The believers must obey the will of Allah and practice the Five Pillars of Islam: trust and understand the Muslim profession of faith, pray five times a day, fast in the month of Ramadan, give money to charity, and pay pilgrimage to Mecca. The Quran is the holy book of Islam which was written by Muhammad, who is regarded as “the perfect person” and the last prophet. The Quran says that there is only one true god, that is, Allah.

What do Muslims believe about Jesus?

While Christians believe that Jesus is the Son of God, Muslims believe Allah has no son. Jesus appears 25 times in the Quran and is given special status, but He is only ever referred to as a prophet. The Quran states that Jesus never died on the cross but agrees that He will return to earth to usher in the end time.

Converted Muslims Face Persecution

When Muslims convert to Christianity, they face intense persecution; however, the number of believers from a Muslim background is growing. Islam has the most severe penalty for apostasy in the world. It is clearly stated in their laws that Muslims must not give up their Islamic beliefs, otherwise they are “apostates”, which is an insult to Islam; as a result, such people must be punished. Muhammad said: “Whoever changes his religion, execute him.

According toOpen Doors, the yearly published World Watch List shows that among the top ten countries which are most dangerous for Christians, half of them are Muslim countries. In addition, 40 out of the top 50 most dangerous countries have Muslim majority in their population.

Further, the terrorist attacks launched by Islamic extremist organizations are now the world’s number one killers of Christians. The converted Muslims are turned against by their own people with knives and guns. Local Christians are often enslaved, abused, sold, raped and even killed for refusing to convert to Islam.

Christian Response to Ramadan

Over 1.8 billion people around the world identify themselves as Muslims. During Ramadan, Muslims earnestly seek to get closer to Allah. In Matthew 5:44, Christ commands us to love our enemies and to pray for those who persecute us. Let us pray that the 1.8 billion Muslims will find the one true God.  (Source: Open Doors)

Pray for Bulgaria – 40 Weeks of Prayers for the Revival and Transformation of Europe

Background : Population 6.9M, Evangelical: 2.1%, Bulgaria is a beautiful country located in the southeastern part of Europe. It is rich in natural resources and the main religion is the Orthodox Church. Bulgaria was founded in the 7th century and has experienced long-term foreign domination. This land was once the last outpost of the Ottoman Empire and remains the gateway to Turkey and Asia, the third most monumental European country. In 1946, it became a Soviet satellite country under communist rule until 1989, when a new democracy was established.

Current state of society: Bulgaria has been devastated by Communist rule. The reforms following the collapse of communism promoted economic development, but corruption, bad judicial systems and criminal groups hindered economic growth. 50% of people live below the poverty line. Poverty, high unemployment, divorce, abortion rate is higher than birth rate, population growth is not as fast as aging, youth immigration, gender inequality, discrimination against ethnic minorities is the current social situation.

Spiritual situation: The influence of Orthodox and Islam still deeply affects Bulgaria, and Christians only account for 8% of the country’s population. Bulgarian culture is becoming more and more secular, adoring Western money, comfort and opportunity.

During the Second World War, Bulgaria stepped forward to protect more than 40,000 Jews in the country, allowing them to escape the misfortunes annihilated by the Nazis. In 1948, the state of Israel was founded, and many Bulgarian Jews moved to Israel, leaving only 4,000 to 5,000 Jews in Bulgaria. In 1989, the communist regime collapsed. Afterwards, many young Jews left Bulgaria and now have about 1,000 Jews living in Bulgaria.

Minority ethnic groups such as Bulgaria’s Roma and Millet have been subjected to bullying discrimination in mainstream society for many years. In the 1990s, the millennial group had a movement of 10,000 people. Under the power of the Holy Spirit, about 5,000 people became Christians, but the number of believers is now decreasing.

Pray for Taiwan – the 2020 Presidential Election

Current event: Taiwan will hold the 15th presidential and vice presidential elections and the 10th legislator election on January 11, 2020. There are still nine months to go from the date of  the presidential election, but the two major political parties, blue and green, are in trouble respectively in the primary election.

Within the DPP, there is a split crisis as President Tsai Ing-wen and former Premier William Lai seek to be nominated for the party and find difficulties in coordination.  The Kuomintang (KMT) has more challengers to run for the presidential primary, Terry Gou, Eric Chu, Wang Jin-pyng, Chou Hsi-wei, and Han Kuo-yu (mayor of Kaohsiung who has been enlisted to join the primaries), making the primary election difficult to settle. Besides, the KMT has currently amended the nomination rule, which may cause the party internal disputes.

The current phenomenon of presidential primary race has been a concern.   Other political parties such as the People First Party, New Power Party, and non-political party are still observing whether they will run for the election. The political elections of the Republic of China has adopted a common, direct, equal, anonymous, single-record, and plurality with single-member-district system.

Pray for the First Nations in Turtle Island – the Medicine Man

Editorial Note: This article is written by an intercessor from the Choctaw First Nation in Oklahoma.  

【Event: Many beliefs of the Native Americans are tied with the Medicine Man/Shaman. The medicine man is considered a holy man because they pray for the healing of the people.  Seems harmless, right? However, it is not praying for people that is wrong, it is the process of how it is done. The information you are about to read it considered sacred and many natives do not know the function of the medicine man. Here is how it is done, during the prayer the medicine man transfers the sickness to himself and then the medicine man battles it out with whatever spirits are involved.

Many times these spirits beat up the medicine men, and the medicine men are okay with this because, they believe their call is to suffer for the people. The spirits talk to the medicine men, and shares insight with them. By doing so the spirits make the medicine men feel they are connected to the land, the people and creation. This allows them to believe this is “the truth.” The people that are partaking in the YUWIPI CEREMONY  do not know that he goes through beating or any type of punishment during the CEREMONY.. The spirits forbid the medicine man to tell the people what he has to do because if the people do know this knowledge they will probably never come back. The price a medicine man has to pay is losing a family relative every 7 years to death. A medicine man does know who will have to die and also knows who will take their own life at time. The Main Spirit that has a hold on the People is named “IKTOMI” Which means SPIDER also known to the people a TRICKSTER. The other high ranking spirits are THE WAKIYAN’S Which mean the THUNDER BIRDS. THE NEPHELIM OR GIANTS are the ones who showed the people how to defile themselves. All the people know is they were sick, but now they are healed.
