Colombia—A testimony of city transformation in Cali
Cali, a world famous drug city, has had all kinds of crimes you can imagine, besides the daily ever-increasing violence and corruption. And this intensified the pressure to the church.
Marcy & Randy McMillan, are a couple experienced in ministry, have had lived in Cali for more than 20 years. For at least 10 years, they have lived under the shadow of notorious drug lords of the city. They have seen devastating outcome of the ruthless drug cartels, even in their own backyard. In 1980s, drug lords with illegal drug capital flooded into Cali, buying a whole street of mansions in exclusive residential district, and moving in close to the McMillan’s. Giberto Rouriguez Crejuela’s family was the head of drug cartels in Cali. It was told that they earn an average monthly income of 500 million US dollar just from drugs trafficking, and this did not include other sources of incomes, during the time when they control Cocaine traffic in the whole nation. For years, Colombia has been the largest Cocaine exporting nation in the world, with an output of more than 1,000 tons of drugs to the European and the US nations.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said Cali drug cartels is not only the largest and the richest, but also the most organized criminal syndicates in history. With billions of US dollars at hand, their influence is everywhere, especially in Cali. Drug cartels certainly controlled the economy and politics in the whole society, not to mention their religious influence over the Pope. At the time when Cali drug dealers were the most influential in the world, people could easily lose their lives. If you drive by an armed conflict, it would be a miracle for you or for the driver to escape this deadly encounter. Randy had witnessed five people lost their lives. Fear had captured everyone passing on the road. Numerous journalists were killed for exposing the evildoing in the Colombian gangsterdom. Their important national policies were manipulated by the drug money. The influence of drug money is in every aspects of the society, with no exception.
Now people can freely walk on the streets that used to be full of fear, this can surely testify the huge change in Cali, but how did this transformation begin?
Just as every revolutionary story starts with intercessory prayers. Ruth and Julio Ruibal, a couple with ears to hear the Spirit, responded to God’s calling in 1987 to come to Cali among the companies of brothers and sisters who set their ears to hear God’s words. They were discouraged for the extreme darkness in the city. But Houlio firmly believed the influences of the enemy would be crashed once God’s people pray with one heart. The problem was that no one is willing to take action. The churches were divided, each pastor minding his or her own business, no one would cooperate. Out of one disagreement, Julio decided to leave this powerless pastors’ association. Later he realized his action had deepened the division. God said to Julio, “You have no right to be offended, you must forgive.” He received God’s word and realized that he would not be offended, if he truly reflected the life of Jesus. Julio returned to the pastor association immediately and asked for their forgiveness. He also pointed out that there can be no more division, in the city facing such extreme challenge like this. Chances were slim, although different international and Colombian authorities had done their best to counteract the drug cartels with little effectiveness.
Pastors were worried and started to pray, asking the Lord to teach them how to pray and understand the roots of spiritual evil forces. In order to see what God has for the city the local Church began to do spiritual mapping to exam the spiritual forces in the neighborhood. Mike Miller began to pass out the map of the city and distribute to the district and community according to the cities, they need to report every serious problem happened in those District. There was one troublesome discovery which is that the city was very much engaged in witchcraft, even the drug lords were the biggest patrons of the spiritual mediums and spiritual counselors. The drug cartels and the leading spiritual mediums were closely connected, and through that, they had gained the authority of religious leaders, and being given over them even greater power in addition to the power to have gained through money. When they began to break the spiritual stronghold of the city, the pastors in Cali recognized that they needed to have a joint worship and prayer. At the beginning, everybody said this would not work for nobody would come. The voices of those who were against it were very loud, but there were the leaders who were willing to do those others who couldn’t do, because they knew this was the will of God.
In the year 1995, the leaders of the church held the first all night prayer vigil to come against the ruling power of the darkness with prayer of unity believing God will begin to move in the church, even the mayor came and prayed in the meeting. He declared that Cali belonged to Jesus Christ. When the Christians heard a government leader spoke those words, it confirmed the work of the Holy Spirit. 48 hours after the prayer meeting, the headline of the newspaper stated there was no murder cases in that day, as far as anyone can remember, this is the first time in the history of Kali that there was no murder case to a city that an average of 15 murder cases in a day. This is a great news, after these big United prayers meeting, it began to see the effects. 10 days later the first drug lord was arrested. God began to change the city, they, being inspired by the spiritual powers from this first all night prayer meeting. The church leaders decided to rent the biggest place in the city to gather at the Soccer stadium that can hold 50,000 seats. Their faith was not in vain, over 60,000 Christians from all denominations came together to pray and worship.
In the summer of 1995 all governmental officials of Colombia declared an all-out war against drug cartel, sending 6500 Special Forces to Cali, their mission was to capture the heads of the drug cartel, and at the time there were several major drug cartels. They had started their fasting and praying for 9 months, then there were 6 lords of the drug cartel died. The spiritual atmosphere of Cali had already been changed.
While Julio was inspired by the work of God, he was also faced with the animosity of his neighbour due to a dispute over the land ownership. The neighbour was angry with him and threatened to kill him. Julio decided to fast and pray in order to know the will of the Lord. So he started to fast. On the third day, God spoke to him. God said, “he will seriously harm you, but out of that, the revival of Cali will spread.” One day, Julio was going to a meeting for the pastor association, it was 2pm in the afternoon, and the pastors were awaiting for him. When he got off the car to walk towards the church, 2 snipers were waiting for him and killed him. His wife recalled a scripture given by the spirit of God: “for our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all (2 Corinthians 4:17).” She knew she was standing on holy ground when she got off from the car and sat besides Julio’s body. She said to the Lord, “Lord, I know You search our hearts, but still I will say my heart is willing, if this is Your will, my heart is willing to obey.”
Hundreds of Christian under extreme shock of this tragedy, they could not understanding this was the will of God, came and gathered in Julio’s funeral, including many Pastors that had stopped speaking to one aother. All the pastors came and embraced one another and made a covenant of unity, agreeing to never allow doubt to come among them. More than 200 pastors joined in this Covenant. This Covenant became the pillar for the Watchman prayer of the city. It is this Covenant that transformed the whole city. Cases of corruption and bribery were greatly reduced, organizations that were selling nicotine were greatly affected. 60000 people prayed all night asking God to continue the miraculous things He had accomplished for the last 36 months in the city. As tens and thousands of people gathered within the stadium to rejoice and worship and praise, there were more than 10,000 people who had to be sent away by the security, those who were late did not want to leave, so they formed a praise and worship team outside and began to circle around the stadium for several hours. This is a miracle. It would have had been impossible for evengelical Christians to together like this just a few years ago.
When the kingdom of God came to Cali, many have experienced life changing testimonies, resulting of the government officials to recognize the positive influences of the gospel. They not only provided the 22,000-seat soccer stadium for free, but also provided free advertisement of the sound and security system. Their open attitudes toward the gospel have had affected on many levels in the society. Now believing in God is no longer considered to be strange, and the upper-class people no longer consider it to be ridiculous, they also admitted that they needed Jesus. In the past they thought believing God was a joke and no one would talk about it. Now when they mention Jesus, they will be respected and will not stop talking about it. Many churches of different denominations all have had explosive growth, when the pastors were asked for the strategy for church growth, they replied: We don’t even have time to plan, we are just busy pulling the net into the boats. Some Churches have more than 35000 members, so they have 7 services on Sunday. It is truly an explosive growth, almost every church is growing, people are hungry for God everywhere, whether it is on the bus or on the streets. Wherever you go, the gospel can be preached. The church leaders believe this spiritual hunger is the direct result of the earnest prayers in unity. This is a constant and continuous process of repentance and reconciliation, wiping away every hindrance for the preaching of the gospel, and people are hungry to be closer to God, this is the direct work of God.
It’s interesting that God will even have chosen Cali, a city manipulated by money laundering, drug lords, and corruption, which is the worst city of pick according to man. However, we believe that God wants the world and its leaders to know that He can change a community as long as it is willing to repent. There is nothing too hard for the Lord, even it is hard for man! We believe God will not only make new things in Cali, Colombia, but in all over the world. Let us continue to pray according to God’s guidance until His will be done in our city, in our country, and in nations! (Source: George Ortis’ Transformation Video)
Pursuing Intimacy With God
The Mystery of Meditation
Joshua 1:8 “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
Dear Abba Father, this child of Yours is grateful to You. Today, this verse reminds us of the importance of meditating on Your Word. You taught us in Proverbs 2:6, “For the LORD gives wisdom, from His month come knowledge and understanding.” Your words are hidden treasures, a mountain full of gems and gold mines. When we enter the secret place, the Holy Spirit could not wait to give us revelations. Oh Father, how You desire to share Your mysteries with us. The Holy Spirit fills us more and more as we meditate on Your words each day. Oh Father, hear our heart cry: we desire more and more of Your knowledge and understanding; teach us and we are listening! Without Your help we will never discover the riches of Your noble words. Father, we truly believe that the words from Your mouth are the fountain of life and that in Your light we shall see light! Father, to meditate upon Your words in the secret place is our uttermost delight! We ask You to pour afresh Your anointing upon us and nourish us that our lives and characters may be renewed and transformed. May our lives reflect that of Jesus Christ, full of goodness and truth.
In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen!
Repentance for the City 03
What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? (James 4:1)
…Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded… Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. (James 4:8-10)
Lord, please heal our land! For the hundreds of years, there have been immense conflict among different ethnicities, political standings and beliefs, which have brought much hatred, violence and injustice, shedding of innocent blood and curses, as well as hidden resentments. Lord, please forgive us and the sins of our ancestors. Heal our cities and bring down love and forgiveness, so that we may forgive one another, without fear, nor giving the devil any foothold. In the Lord’s name, we break the dividing walls between ___ ethnic group and___ethnic group
(list the name of the ethnic groups whose dividing walls you are aware of, for example, Caucasian Americans and African-Americans).
We pray that the Lord would block any troubles caused by the conflicts in our human flesh. We declare that Jesus Christ is the Mediator. Please bring true peace, and raise up the Church to stand in the gap. May the churches unite as one in Christ, to be the true salt and light in this land. May there be authority, power and anointing in our hands, as we partner with the Holy Spirit to help this land enter into the river of the Spirit – forgiving one another, submitting to one other in love, and living in peace with our neighbours.
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.]
[General Condition: Located on the west coast of Africa,Ghana is the closest landmark to the center of the world. The population is 24,658,823 according to 2010 Census. Tema, an industrial city, is located on the Greenwich meridian (zero-degree warp) and is connected to Accra, the capital.
Ghana is a country with more Christians in West Africa. The missionaries laid the foundation for the Christian church in Ghana in the nineteenth century. Today, the Ghanaian Christian population accounts for 63.4%. The south of Ghana is dominated by Christians; everyone claims to be a Christian, and churches are found everywhere. However, most of them are only nominal Christians. Except in Accra and a few other major cities, most people who live in small villages believe in traditional African religions, and in the north the Muslim population is growing. Ghanaians have a peaceful and modest temperament, so believers of different faiths in the north and the south can coexist peacefully.
Poverty Ghana has been known for gold mining since the colonial era. Its coastline being nicknamed the “Gold Coast”is the world’s leading gold producer. However, the local people have not benefited from it. They cannot enjoy the rich natural resources. Instead, foreigners have been benefiting from it, resulting in more than one-quarter of the population living below the international poverty line, without access to water, electricity, basic sanitation equipment, hospitals and quality education.
Dumping Ground: According to the statistics of the United Nations Environment Program, nearly 85% of the world’s electronic waste is transported to Ghana in Africa to be disposed of, using the “direct burning” method. However, the toxic gas emission generated by burning becomes thick billowing smokes like Satan; they surround Agbogbloshie, a small town next to the capital Accra. Ironically, the poorest Ghanaians with low economic resources are forced to rely on the electronic waste for a living.
Child Labor and Slaves: There are currently about 1.2 million children between the ages of 5 and 17 in Ghana who are child laborers, accounting for about 22% of the total population of this age group. Other data show that more than 190,000 Ghanaians live in modern slavery. Many boys are sold to Ivory Coast and become forced labor in the agricultural sector. To maintain a stable source of cheap labor, the businessmen who control all of this deliberately lower the wages of farmers to prevent them from being financially able to afford education or other lifestyles.]
Heavenly Father, we pray for Ghana:
- Pray for the Ghanaians: May God save the people of Ghana, especially the souls of Muslims and traditional elf worshipers. May God have mercy on them, care and comfort the suffering poor people of Ghana. May God appear to and soften their hearts to Jesus, to receive the riches in Jesus Christ. Set them free from the suppression of poverty and other bondage to become the people of God’s Kingdom of wonderful light and express the glory of God.
- Pray for Christians and churches: May God breathe over Your children in Ghana, to awaken their souls and give them a hungry heart for the Word of God. Being deeply grounded and rooted in Your truth and love, they may experience the renewal of the Holy Spirit and become fervent for You. May God’s fire rend the heaven and come down, burning the Church and imparting the power of the Holy Spirit. Lord, urge the church leaders to rise and establish prayer altars in one accord. May they align themselves with God so that assuming the power in unity they can pray for Ghana. Lord, equip believers to enter the political, economic and other fields, to gain the land for You and transform the entire nation of Ghana.
- Pray for the Ghanaian government: May God gain the souls of government officials. Raise Christian government officials who are godly and holy, to govern the country according to the wisdom and strategy given by God. Empower them to put an end to corruption, stop poverty, solve the serious problems of natural resources being controlled by international enterprises and the dumping of electronic waste.Help them also solve the social problems associated with child laborers and slavery. May the rich natural resource that God has given to Ghana benefit all the Ghanaians throughout the country and lead Ghana into the richness of the Kingdom of God, and fulfill God’s plan and destiny for Ghana
- Pray for the newly elected President Nana Akufu-Addo: May God bless him with the willingness to seek the well-being of the Ghanaian people. Make him righteous, humble and teachable, to rely on God’s grace and wisdom and lead the people to transform Ghana to become a real “Gold Coast.”
- For Christians: we ask God to strengthen the Christians of Qatar, may Holy Spirit filled them greatly, to cause them to boldly stand in the face of hostility and the ongoing threat of persecution. To be filled with the wisdom of God and rely wholly on the leading of the Holy Spirit. To be wise as serpents and innocent as doves, and win souls for the Lord at all times. May God use these foreign Christians to help one another in unity, to become seeds of fire that can influence lives, to bear good fruit. May God bring down the fire of prayer, and cause Christians to pray in unity, to experience God’s transformational power, to be strong in faith and become channels for the gospel.
- For the people: May God’s mercy come upon the Muslims of Qatar, to give them a desire to know the truth, to visit them supernaturally, that they may encounter Jesus as the true God, receiving salvation and their whole household be saved, and lead many other Muslims neighbors to come down the name of the Lord.
- Pray for Al Jazeera: Ask the Lord to reign in the Al Jazeera TV station and convert this media, known as the ‘Middle East CNN’, to a channel that can release righteous, upright and truthful news.
- For the Amir of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani: may God grant him humility and wisdom, that he may seek the true God in this diplomatic crisis, to be able to restore relations with the neighboring Arabic states.

May they be graceful to God’s people and protect Christian religion freedom.
Pray for President Trump:

May they become blessings for President Trump. We declare in the name of the Lord that they will continue to protect the freedom of religion for Christians.
- May God manifest His righteousness, to those political leaders who are not after God’s heart, who have offended God and covered up their sins, eradicating evidences by murdering witnesses, we declare in Jesus’ name that they be brought to justice. We pray that the Lord protect the intelligence personnel who are searching the hidden evil, the journalists and witnesses who hold the evidences. Protect their identity not to be exposed until the evil political leaders are brought to justice.
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.

Raise up the churches to stand in the gap to repent for their cities, provinces and country.

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.”)]

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)

How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land?” (Psalm 137: 1, 4)

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.
