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.
Testimony of transformation-Almalonga, Guatemala
Almalonga, Guatemala was a city in extreme poverty.
The problem of alcoholism was very serious. Violence, ignorance, witchcraft, cults and idols worship, After an encounter with God, the people experienced revival. Over 20,000 people of the city decided to discontinue the custom of ancestorial worship. Today Almalonga has become the cleanest and prosperous city. This is a city of the churches. Many have used Almalonga as the role model for the world to transform societies. 80% of its population is born again Christians. However, it was not like this before.
20 years ago Almalonga was a dark and dangerous place. It was in severe poverty and ignorance. Alcoholism was the major problem. Due to all these issues, there were prisons all over the city. Fighting was common, so the government officials built a number of prisons; however, the problem could not be solved. They would transfer the prisoners to the cities nearby. Family violence was also serious as both parents were alcoholic. This caused many who wanted to escape from their sufferings to worship idols. At that time the people believed Maximon was their highest god of guardian and this was the biggest stronghold of the city. The influential power behind this idol had put the people of Almalonga in serious bondage.
Rev. Mariano Liscaher was one of the leaders who was instrumental to spiritually turn Almalonga around.
During this dark age, it was difficult to preach the gospel. Any evangelists who came to the city would be beaten or stoned then be thrown out of the city. Numerous small churches were also attacked. Evangelical Christians were a despised minority. One time six people pointed a gun at Rev. Mariano’s throat. While they were just about to pull the trigger, Rev. Mariano quietly prayed to God for help. When they pulled the trigger, nothing happened. At that instance between life and death, God saved Rev. Mariano Liscaher, so he called everyone to pray and believe it was time to free the bondage of poverty, violence and superstition.
Intercessors of the time were filled with supernatural faith. They sought the Lord and fast 3 to 4 days a week. Every Saturday they held prayer meetings to watch and pray. God opened heaven; many began to be delivered and saved, and they started coming to church. After all kinds of signs and wonders happened, a multitude of people were delivered from the oppression of the devil. The church also began to grow. A woman named Teresa was healed from her disease. Due to an unsuccessful operation, she was paralysed and her inner organs began to decay. Her illness was progressively worse by the day. They were about to make funeral arrangements for her. While Liscaher was making funeral arrangements for her, God impressed upon him to pray for her. After he prayed for her, she was completely healed. She stood up, completely healed. A few hundred people came to Christ because of her healing. When people saw how the gospel transformed lives, they began to notice and were drawn more and more to the gospel. Their lives have been transformed after they believed. Now there are 24 evangelical churches in this city with a population of 19,000. Mariano Liscaaher’s church can seat 1,200 and is mostly full. The presence of the Holy Spirit is not only manifested in church growth, but many buildings on the streets are also named after the cities of the Bible. There were 26 bars in the past, but now there are only 3. They have stopped drinking and violence.
In the past 20 years the crime rate of this city has continued to come down. Up until 1994, 4 of the prisons in Almalonga had been closed. No one causes any more trouble in the city. The barren land has become fertile valleys. The fertile land has produced all kinds vegetables to be harvested 3 times a year. Before the spiritual transformation, they could only transport their crops 4 times a month, but now 40 times a week. Because of their tremendously bumper crops, the agricultural department of the United States would send their teams to survey this land. They say the great harvest is all because of the visitation of God. In the past they would need 60 days to harvest carrots, but now only 40 days. The faith of the people has increased. After the people are delivered, they work hard and cultivate their land productively.They have stopped their superstition and idols worship but fervently worship God and work diligently. They continue to fast 3 times a week. The more they pray, they more they demolish the power of darkness. The neighboring village had celebrated idol worship before, but then 15,000 people gathered to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. Prayers and fasting made them overcome the destruction of the power from darkness. God has transformed the whole society. (Source: George Otis’ film: Transformation of Almalonga, Guatamela.)
We are the generation to be used by God for spiritual revolution. Let us join our hearts to pray to God and allow His power to come to transform our homes, our cities and our countries.
Pursuing Intimacy With God
Titus 2:11-13 “For the grace of God hath appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us, to the intent that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live self-controlled and upright and godly in this present age; looking for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ;”
Dear Abba Father,
We come before You today to thank You for helping us to persevere in prayer and fasting. During this time, we want to meditate more upon Your love and teachings of the Bible. Oh Father, teach us to live a godly life. How we long to live the life according to Titus 2:11-13, a life of self-control and uprightness and godliness in this present age waiting for the blessed hope. As we pause and ponder, You show us that only those who have the light of God are able to live a godly life; those who do not have the light of God, even though they may appear to be godly, they do not have the godliness in them. Oh Abba Father, bring us deeper and closer to You that we may understand that to be godly is to be like You: whatever the father says, the child says; whatever the father does, the child does. How much You want us to have Your likeness both inside and outside; oh Father, we are willing to be molded into Your likeness! Let our temperament, actions, words, attitudes and every aspect of our lives be like our heavenly Father. Oh, how great is Your mercy and grace toward us! Father, we bow our knees and worship You. We want to bless You every day and praise Your name forever and forever!
In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen!
Prayer for the Church 07
Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me in the Shadow of Your wings from the wicked who are out to destroy me, from my mortal enemies who surround me. (Psalm 17:8-9 (NIV))
“Because he loves Me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges My name; He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. (Psalm 91:14-15 (NIV))
O LORD, keep our pastors as the apple of Your eye; hide them in the shadow of Your wings from all perilous situations. They will not be ashamed in times of trouble. Hear their cry, O God; preserve their lives from fear of the enemy. (Ref. Psalm 64:1). LORD, please remove all distractions such as business, compromise, unnecessary internet surfing, phone calls, meetings, chores, weariness, desires, TV shows and movies, etc. that keep them from praying. Break down the walls that separate them from You. LORD, I ask You to bless our pastors to seek You daily, pray together with other pastors and build up prayerful lives. LORD, I also ask You to bless our pastors to be sensitive to Your leading and guidance. Bless them with open hearts to be willing to obey You. LORD, draw them close to You and bless them to have their strength renewed while having quiet time with You. Bless them with the mighty power of the Lord’s resurrection, and Your specific instructions and teachings on the vision and direction of their individual ministries.
Lord Jesus, I ask You to take full charge of our pastors’ ministries, bless them with Your anointing and power in their teachings. Bless their lives. Bless them to not only be preachers but also doers of Your words. Bless them to live out Christ-like lives and become role models for their sheep. I also ask You to bless our pastors to be alert to sin, that their moral behaviour can reflect Your holiness. I ask You to enable our pastors to stand firm on Your truth without compromise, to preach Your truth in love and truthfully influence peoples’ lives. LORD, I ask You to grant our pastors the gift of spiritual discernment and the anointing of prayer, in order for them to lead our brothers and sisters to be armed with the full armor of God and stand in the gap to intercede for this generation in one heart, to build up the mighty army of the LORD, resisting all the evil schemes of the enemy and quenching all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
LORD, I ask You to bless our pastors to trust You wholeheartedly, and to acknowledge You in their ways. And You shall direct them to walk in Your way of everlasting life.
In the holy name of Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!

[News: August 9th – An airstrike led by Saudi coalition of Arab nations hit a school bus in northern Yemen. 51 people were killed – majority of them children. They were talking with excitement about the day’s field trip at the time of the airstrike. Schools and hospitals have also been struck by the coalition before.

Pray For Israel
Pray for the potential internal war in Israel
[Current event: Israel’s internal is approaching, very few talk about it, this is a war that can potential split the nation: War between Ultra-Orthodox Jews and Liberal Israelis,Ultra-Orthodox Jews (called haredim) are the fastest-growing segment in Israel, currently making up roughly 15 percent of the Jewish population is the fastest growing Jews, about 15% of the population, Israel’s democracy requires a coalition of parties to lead the country. To put his coalition together, Netanyahu had to include two ultra-Orthodox parties, United Torah Judaismand Shas.Ultra-Orthodox Jews do not have television, limited Internet access, and tightly controlled clothing norms and sexual customs. However, the rest of the Israeli population is quite “progressive” and indulgent. As Israel Today states, “As a country, Israel is proud of its tolerance and acceptance of homosexuals. The open gay parliamentarians of the Israeli parliament; the Israel Defense Forces touts its integration with the LGBT community; Tel Aviv is traveled by Israel The ministry promoted the best gay tourist destination; Prime Minister Netanyahu recently highlighted Israel’s acceptance of homosexuality at the American Jewish Committee meeting.” As LGBT activity grew, conflict with ultra-Orthodox Jews became more powerful.
Recently, however, to the consternation of liberal Israelis, “Netanyahu and his Likud Party … helped defeat a motion to include homosexuals in a new amendment to Israel’s surrogacy laws. Homosexuals took to the streets of Tel Aviv in mass protest when the Knesset rejected their appeals. “In response to the liberal outcry, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem Aryeh Stern insisted that the government of Israel shouldn’t be party to such a ‘wretched’ state of affairs.”Stern’s remarks were widely vilified, as a result of which 200 ultra-Orthodox rabbis wrote a letter supporting him, And they could soon reach a boiling point as the secular population of Israel leans more and more to the left and the haredim lean more and more to the right, while they also continue to grow in numbers and power.
Israel is the most advanced country in the Middle East concerning the right of LGBT, and one of the most advanced countries in Asia. Although in Israel one could not register for same-sex marriage, but as homosexuality was legalized in 1988. She has the title of “the gay capital of the Middle East”. In the 2000s, there were also some violent incidents against LGBT. “In the Pride Parade in Jerusalem in July 2015, the ultra-Orthodox Jewish man YishaiSchlisselwent on a stabbing spree and killed the 16-year-old ShiraBanki. Therefore, the tension is very serious.
Spiritual background: The war between Ultra-Orthodox Jews and the liberal Israelis is like a confrontation between two camps and an ideological war that has been torn apart the nation into two parts. From a spiritual point of view, Satan uses the lies of “progress”, “freedom” and “community integration” to deceive Israel’s acceptance of homosexuality and fall into the sin of indulgence of lust. In particular, Israel is the Chosen people of God. The judgment begins with house of God. God has never soften His requirement for holiness of His chosen people. God has shown through Moses that if you keep the commandments, you will be blessed. If you violate the commandments, deviate from the Word of God, and serve other gods, you will suffer! (Deuteronomy 11:26-28) The confrontation between the ultra-Orthodox and the liberal camps brought hatred and division, fall right into the tricks of the enemy, causing Israel to walk farther away from God’s destiny. The only solution is through the love and redemption of Jesus, to bring the heart of man back to the truth.
Satan tried to completely disintegrate and hinder God’s destiny and calling in the season of 70th anniversary of creation of the Jewish State, but our God is victorious. Let us join together to pray in agreement for Israel, and believe that God will totally turn Israel around, and repossess the lost land ]
See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse— 27 the blessing if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today; 28 the curse if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God and turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known. 2 When the Lord your God has brought you into the land you are entering to possess, you are to proclaim on Mount Gerizim the blessings, and on Mount Ebal the curses(Duet 11:26)
I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him.3 But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.(II Corinthian 11:2-3)
Abba Father, in the name of Jesus we declare:
- Sent Your spirit of repentance into Israel, to save the souls of Israel.
- Holy Spirit send Your fire, to cleanse Israel, especial the heart of the people in the places and their residents where the gay parade had passed through.
- Replace the wrong and twisted concept of same sex marriage, with the Truth of the bible and the godly marriage value, so the one husband and one wife, one man and one woman, can be fully restored in Israel!
- Awaken the heart of the young generation, to rediscover the value of Christian family, give them a hate for the homosexual concept, and say “NO” to same sexual marriage and its behavior.
- In the name of Jesus we declare, the fire of the Holy Spirit will rend the heaven and come down and burn down and abolish the stronghold of homosexuality in Israel, declare that our God reign, establish Your throne in Israel, revive Israel to be Your holy Kingdom.
- Forgiveness: Ask God to forgive the Israeli government to allow homosexual parades throughout Israel.
- Cleansing: Ask God to cleanse the soul that has been defiled, and thoroughly cleanse and break the influence of homosexuality.
- Blessings and Curses: Ask the Lord to let Israel commemorate the words of God’s blessings on mount Gerizim, and use the words of God’s curse on the mount Ebalto knock open their hearts, so they will have the fear of the Lord, and turn back to God.
- The love of Jesus: The love of Jesus being released among the ultra-orthodox and liberal Jews, let the truth of God to bring them freedom. Bind the strong men who make them hate each other, give peace and unite with each other.
- Pure and clean heart: May God restore Israel’s pure and clean heart toward Christ, and be dedicate to Christ alone.
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 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.
