Global 40-Day Fasting Prayer – 1/1/2019-2/9/2019
Through the global 40 day fasting prayers from August 1 to September 9, God has linked us together to establish this global 24/7 prayer wall to pray for the kingdom of God. Thank you for your loyalty and perseverance. Now it has been more than three months. During this period, we have been continuously updating and changing, in order to make this prayer wall more efficient, and with defensive and offensive power. There are quite a few adjustments that have caused inconvenience to you. Thank you for bearing with us. May God honor all of you for your loyalty.
In the 40-day fasting prayer in August, we experienced God’s timely response to our prayers as recorded in the Global 40-Day Fasting Prayer Testimony in August. Although there are still many prayers to be fulfilled, We believe that God is faithful, as stated in 1 John 5:14-15 : “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 ask of him.”
Recently, we have sensed the tensions around the global tensions and all five continents are being shaken. There will be greater shaking in 2019 next year, especially in the United States and several countries of global concern, as well as indigenous peoples around the world. God is urgently calling the intercessor to enter the global 40-day fasting prayer before the advent of 2019. We will explain briefly below:
Why another urgent 40 days of fasting and praying?
- God’s kingdom is accelerating, and God is raising the standard : After the last 40 days of fasting and praying around the world, we admit that we have relaxed. But God did not stop advancing His kingdom. We felt this 40-day fasting prayer will be used by God to raise up the intercessors, to enter into deeper prayers that can pinpoint urgent and critical issues, and through the 40 days of fasting prayer, our lives will be more refined, so we will gird up our belt, to intercede with authority, and release the power of God.
- The critical moment when the world faces an life and death situation :
- Homosexuality sweeps across the globe : When the United States legalized same sex marriage in the Supreme Court in 2015, many Asian countries, including Taiwan, began to follow United States and legalized the same sex marriage through interpretation of constitution by the Supreme Court. Promoting homosexuality has become fashionable trend, and young people are eager to imitate and emulate.
- Islamist forces are trying to make the globe Islamic : like Europe etc. The Libyan president once said: “Allah wants to make Islam a great victory in Europe, no need to use swords and knives, no need to attack the city, we don’t need terrorists, we don’t need suicide bombers, we have more than 50 million Muslims in Europe. It takes only a few decades to turn it into a Muslim continent.
- Islamist forces tried to Islamize United States : In 2005, 24 Islamic organizations met in Chicago, according to their conference proceedings showing how they planned to teach the United States through journalism, political education, and so on. They said: We must prepare for this reality, that is, within 30 years, there will be 50 million Muslims living in the United States.
- Former US President’s policy of promoting Islamization: After taking office in 2008, he began to promote many Islamization policies at various levels of American society, including allowing Muslim officials to worship five times a day in the White House, teaching Islam in schools at all levels, and even Misleading them to swear to the false gods.
- The plot of “Deep State ” : The “deep state” planned to elect Hillary Clinton as president and continue to complete the Islamization of the United States and promote global Islamization. Through God’s intervention in the 2016 presidential election, coupled with over confidence of the “deep state” and lack of mobilizing comprehensive electoral system, President Trump was elected, blocking the plots of “deep state” to fully control the US :
- Instigated the removal of President Trump: The Muller investigation attempted to Impeach President Trump .
- Manipulating the election system : A large number of illegal votes attempt to change the election results.
- Launching a media attack: Making a lot of fake news to distort the truth, to attack and smear President Trump.
- Implement various assassination plans against President Trump .
- Launched a global witches and wizards to curse President Trump and his family.
- Creating social riots and crises: Trump is the target of their full-scale attack, so they instigated and financed the caravan mob, provoked racial conflict violence, and local shootings to provoke President Trump’s national policy.
- Challenge and obstruct President Trump’s policy for the next two years : In this midterm election, the Democratic Party thinks it will win in all aspects, with God’s keeping power, giving conservatives an unprecedented advantage in the Senate, and state governors, but God also allowed the Democratic Party to regain control of the House of Representatives. Making President Trump’s policy for the next two years to be greatly challenged and obstructed.
- God is going to shake the United States even more in 2019 : We sense the greater shake of the United States in 2019 , although the liberals are allowed to have short-lived victories in order to unveil the power of darkness, so the roots of evil can be completely rooted out. God is going to cleanse and reform the electoral system through President Trump, to purify and change the entire United States.The anti-Christ forces have been back into the corner and are doing everything to fight back and bring destruction. We need strong and powerful prayers to declare God’s plans and purpose for the United States and the nations, paving the way for the re-election of Trump’s US president in 2020, so that God’s will for the United States and the nations can be achieved.
- The rise of Aboriginal people around the world: Aboriginal people around the world are the key to revival everywhere. We sensed now is the moment for the aboriginal people to stand in their positions. God has begun to connect us with the leaders of Aboriginal intercessors, so during these 40 days of prayer and fasting, we will concentrate our prayers for the global aborigines with intensity.
- Countries around the world are facing various crises, such as :
- China : Weighing down the policy of tightening the religion and causing persecution of the church.
- Russia : Hidden attempts to create crisis in various countries and expand their control over the world.
- Israel : The government is facing early re-election and social unrest; there are foreign garrisons in the south and the big countries in the north waiting for opportunities to attack through countries such as Syria and Lebanon; overseas anti-Semitic forces and unfair treatment by the United Nations.
- The United Nations: Controlled by Muslim countries on many levels, resisting & hostile toward the state of Israel, promoting abortion, homosexuality, Islamization and other global agendas.
- Middle East: Conflicts between Shiite countries such as Iran and Sunni Arab countries have intensified; Christians have been persecuted.
- Taiwan : Facing the crisis of legalization of same sex marriage and Islamization of the society.
- Canada : Cannabis is legalized and Christians are suppressed everywhere.
- Breaking through the chaos of the current situation: Now there are international crisis that are interlocking with one another, which requires a greater breakthrough.
- Fasting and prayed will bring down another level of breakthrough: Any breakthrough and elevation, requires prayer and fasting In order to cleanse our souls and body, to enhance our vision and to align with God in a greater way.
- The transformation of the United States will bring about the transformation of the nations: we believe that God has called the United States to be a “city on the hill, the light of the world”, a missionary country. President Trump is the key to the transformation of America. He is very much in need of our prayers at this critical moment so that God’s will can be done in the United States and the nations.
When do we start?
The 40-day fasting prayer will start from 1/1/2019 to 2/9/2019 to usher in the new year. As for the way to fast, please refer to the fasting prayer guide and pray for how you will fast individually.
The 40-day fasting prayer will be different from the August in the following:
1) Prayer direction and focus: Pray deeper for the United States, Israel and other countries of global concern.
2) Prayer update: Update every few days.
This is the call of Esther, as the time when Israel was facing threat of destruction of entire tribe! The trumpet has sound. Rise up warriors of intercession, “For such a time as this “, let us stand on the wall of prayer, cry out to God day and night, to bring about a breakthrough, to begin the glorious 2019!

Visitation of God in Fiji
Nataliera before and after Revival
Nataliera is a village situated by the sea in an idyllic location with a beautiful beach against a background of colourful mountains, but before 2004 the villagers were far from satisfied. There was division, tension and strife in the village. Idolatry and witchcraft created an atmosphere of evil, with many people dying untimely deaths. Even among the Christians there was prejudice, rivalry and division.
Young people were taking drugs and becoming promiscuous. Teenage pregnancies occurred, and there was a general spirit of rebellion against parents and all authority. The soil produced very few crops, and when the villagers went to the forest to try and grow crops, these were rooted up and destroyed by wild animals, especially pigs. At sea, the coral reef had died, so there were no fish to be caught.
Then something happened that brought matters to a head. At the entrance to the village, two old idols, models of warlords, that had been preserved in a museum, had been placed on either side of a drive as decorations. A young man of the village, riding a horse, accidentally knocked one of these idols so that it fell down and the head of the idol was broken off. The idol was put back up again and the head was fastened on with a rope. The young rider, however, started to feel ill, and a few days later, was found hanged, and the rope round his head was tied in the same way that the head of the idol had been tied on. This upset the village, and caused even more division and recrimination, especially when some people claimed that they had heard the idol speaking to them and making hissing noises. (This was personally confirmed to me by the man telling the story.) The leaders of the churches in the village then decided that things had to be sorted out, so they went to the village chief and asked him to call a meeting. At the meeting they decided to call in the Healing the Land Team. The team went to the village, found out the facts, and told the people they had to fast and pray for two weeks, which they did.
Two weeks later, the team arrived, and while they were there, they did a prayer walk around the village, every evening for seven nights. On the seventh night, they blew on shells, banged on cymbals and commanded the demons to leave the village. The demons left, and all the dogs in the village barked as they left, for the dogs sensed the demons going past them.
During their time there, the team prophesied that fire would fall in the village. As the mission went on, people repented of their sins, of their prejudice and division. The young people repented of their rebelliousness and their disobedience to their parents. People wept and cried as they were reconciled to each other.
On the last night of the mission, which they call a process, the villagers brought all their witchcraft items and put them in a pile to be burnt. Then the man who told me the story, whose name was Amosi, spoke up and said, “It isn’t right for these idols to stay here. They must be destroyed.” So, the young people went out and broke them up, and put the pieces on top of the bonfire.
Repentance of Young Drug addicts
On the following day, after the team had left, as it was getting dark, the mother of the boy who had committed suicide, who was standing with some others, saw an intense light over the sea. It was a wide column of fire, rising high over the surface, glowing red, orange and yellow, with flames at the side, which spread out over a large area of the sea. This magnificent sight stayed in position for about half an hour and was a fulfillment of the prophecy that fire would come to the village. On the very next day, when they went out to fish, a huge shoal of fish was there. The Lord had healed the coral reef and brought the fish back. Everybody came and caught an abundance of fish, filling large 50 kg. bags again and again. On the land, the crops started to grow again. Truly, our God is a merciful God.
Since then, the villagers come together for prayer meetings every Wednesday, from 6 a.m.to 3 p.m., to coincide with the fast times, on the first Sunday of every month they unite in worship together, and every 6 months they have a week of united meetings. If you go there, you will see the monument they have put up to commemorate the happenings in 2004, erected on the site where the witchcraft items were burnt. On the monument it gives the dates of the transformation: 16 May 2004 to 14 June 2004, and proclaims that there is no God but Jehovah, quoting Isaiah 43:11, and that He is the God of Nataliera. Praise the Lord. Our God is an awesome God.
In June 2005, because of the visitation of God, the whole village thanked the Lord for the Great Revival, convened the “Anniversary celebration” the villagers were full of gratitude and held various special gatherings.
The sorcerers repented and burnt all the props
On the last day, seven or eight sorcerers who had long used idolatry to control villages confessed all the bad things they have done, repented and accepted the redemption of Christ. They took all their magic props and burnt them in front of the villagers.
Now, on the land of the village, a memorial monument of revival was raised up with the engravement: “ I, even I am the Lord, and apart from Me there is no Savior (Isaiah 43:11).”

Daily Prayer Declaration
The Editor’s team has received that we will pray and declare the following four topics:
Ask God to save the souls of the members of Free Mason and Illuminati
- In the name of Jesus, the sovereignty of the Lord of Host will replace the control and manipulation from Freemason and Illuminati in politics, economy, and other areas.
- In the name of Jesus, the Lord of Host will send Michael the Archangel and the angelic host to destroy the dark power from Freemason and Illuminati in politics, economy, and other areas.
- In the name of Jesus, all members that belong to Freemason and Illuminati will return to You and be saved.
Ask God to save the souls of Islamic extremists
We know the danger that Islamic extremists bring to the world with their terror attacks and their prayers that often become the curses toward Israel and the rest of the world. Especially during Ramadan, 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 can 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 into the schools of every nation, pushing the legalization of homosexual education and same-sex marriage. Therefore, we need to pray and declare the following every day:
- 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 the 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 one wife system.
Ask God to keep all the nations out of the war crisis and into peace
- In the name of the Lord, the whole world will enter into a season of reconciliation and peace, to break away from the enemy’s division and tricks to detonate wars. We especially ask you God to preserve China-US relationship, United States-Russia relationship, Taiwan-China relationship, and the relationships between Middle East Muslim countries and Israel.
Repentance Prayer For Church 05
- So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” (Genesis 1:27-28 (NIV))
- “You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven.” (Matthew 5:13-16 (NIV))
Abba Father, You give human being a mandate to subdue all the earth, thus we have responsibility to be good stewards over all the earth including governance in human society. Father, we are sorry that we, the church has forsaken the authority as king and priest. Because of our ignorance, indifference and disregard, the rulership falls into the hands of injustice politicians. One after another, the bills and acts abhorred by You are passed and executed and cause the social morality bankrupting. Lord, please forgive us of not caring about the issues of our countries and feel indifferent regarding the suffering and sins in our society. Please forgive us of our avoiding our responsibility, not standing in the gap to intercede for our nation, to raise up voice of justice for Christ. Lord, please forgive us of not knowing Your heart and Your redemptive will toward this broken world; please forgive us of not taking responsibility as citizens to lead the world to walk on the godly way of the Lord by resisting the demonic forces and; prevent our society from corruption.
In the holy name of Lord Christ Jesus, we renounce all lies from the enemy. We break the prejudices on political issues off churches,no longer weak. We declare that we will wake up, obey God, not obey man, having a heart of power, of love and of soundness of minds. We will continually pay the price of intercession and prayer for our nations; And we will boldly stand out to vote at the elections, speak out against any ungodly acts and bills in a gentle and peaceful way. We will be salt and light of this world and live out the lifestyle of the kingdom of God and to be a powerful witness to give testimony for the truth, authority, grace and judgement of the Kingdom of Heaven.
In the name of Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!
Pursuing Intimacy With God
Rend the Heavens and Come Down
Isaiah 64:1 “Oh, that You would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble before You!”
Oh, precious Father, rend the heavens and revive us. We cry, “Let Your consuming fire descend upon us!” Help us see that all we need is You!
Father, we have felt the breeze but have not known the wind. We have felt the streams but need Your river once again. We have yet to see the desert blossom as the rose, yet we know You want to fulfill all the promises of Your Word. Father, help us know You more that we might trust You and obey You more. We have seen Your deeds but have not known Your ways. You know our thoughts from afar; all our weaknesses are open before You and there is no place to hide them from You. Oh Father, forgive us for we have praised gods in the image we have made and we have yet to become the grain of wheat that died. Oh Father, take us to our own Gethsemane where we can see the greatness of our need. Father, increase Your grace upon us that we might earnestly seek You and pray! Oh, Holy Spirit, come and drive us to our knees that we might plead, “Revive us once again!”
Oh, rend the heavens and revive us! Father, descend upon us the consuming fire! We long for Your glorious presence, mercy, grace and power. Oh holy Father, consume us with Your flame of love that we might be Your holy people who love You with all our hearts, minds and souls!
In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen!
(Reference: The above prayer was adapted from the lyrics of “Oh, Rend the Skies” by Steven Fry.)
Pray For Israel
UN Routinely Bashes Israel. Pray for Israel to Rely on God
【Current Event: On 12/6/18, the 193-member UN General Assembly rejected an American resolution condemning Hamas for ‘repeatedly firing rockets into Israel and for inciting violence, thereby putting civilians at risk.’ The failed resolution demanded Hamas to cease all provocative actions and violent activity. The UN routinely bashes Israel. Just last Friday it passed six resolutions in one day condemning the Jewish state. And over the years it has voted to condemn Israel more than 500 times. While a plurality of member states voted for the US resolution, it failed because of a parliamentary procedure requiring a 2/3 majority for passage. Israel is in a difficult situation in the international arena. Their only way out is to seek God. Let’s pray for Israel to rely on God.】 (Source: Christians in Defense of Israel, 12/6/2018)
- Psalm 102:21 “So the name of the Lord will be declared in Zion and his praise in Jerusalem”
- 2 Kings 19:16 “Give ear, Lord, and hear; open your eyes, Lord, and see; listen to the words Sennacherib has sent to ridicule the living God.”
- Psalm 2:2, 4, 6, 12 “The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed…The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them… saying, “I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.” Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to destruction… Blessed are all who take refuge in him.”
Pray for Netanyahu and Israeli Government(Updated)
【Current Events : Last month, Israel experienced the worst single day attack by rockets and mortars in Gaza. Within 25 hours, Hamas fired nearly 500 rockets and mortars at civilian areas in the western Negev. Under the mediation of Egypt, Israel and Hamas reached an informal ceasefire agreement. However, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman quickly resigned to protest, saying that the truce was a sign of weakness. Netanyahu told the people that the military is carrying out other major security operations and it will take time to achieve success, and if the war with Gaza continues, it will endanger these operations. Although the rocket attack is temporarily halted, it caused Netanyahu’s ruling coalition to drop to only 61 seats in the parliament, making the administration very fragile and more difficult to function properly. In addition. on 12/2, Israeli police recommended the indictment of Netanyahu on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust. The recommendations, which have no legal significance by themselves, apply to seven further suspects, including the prime minister’s wife, Sara.
On the Lebanese border, Hezbollah, the radical terrorist militia supported by Iran, is highly favored by the Lebanese people. It has more than 150,000 rockets that can reach any target in Israel. 】(Source: Isaiah 62 Prayer Initiative, December 2018 Prayer Letter) ( English :https://int.icej.org/prayer-points-december-2018)]
【News Update: On 12/4, the Israel Defense Forces [IDF] reported the discovery of tunnels that Hezbollah had dug along the border between Israel and Lebanon. When Netanyahu signed a ceasefire agreement with Hamas in the Gaza Strip, he hinted at Hezbollah’s activities which have been going on for many years. Israel has since received international support from the ceasefire agreement, and so far Hezbollah has stayed relatively quiet. However, any mistake in judgment could lead to a major war between Israel and Hezbollah/Lebanon and Iran.】(Source: Intercessors for Israel Ministry)
- I Timothy 2:1-3 “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior.”
- Isaiah 60:18 “No longer will violence be heard in your land, nor ruin or destruction within your borders, but you will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise.”
- Psalm 147:14 “He grants peace to your borders and satisfies you with the finest of wheat.”
- Psalm 7:8 “Let the Lord judge the peoples. Vindicate me, Lord, according to my righteousness, according to my integrity, O Most High.”
Dear Abba Father,
- Pray for Netanyahu and Israeli Government: Father, give Prime Minister Netanyahu and his government wisdom and strength to deal with all national challenges. Let Netanyahu solely depend on You that he will follow Your guidance with courage and boldness and make right decisions. Let him continue to overcome crisis one after another and lead Israel to walk in Your perfect will. Abba Father, we ask You to raise up righteous counselors to help him govern Israel, those who act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with You.
- Clear Allegations of Corruption Against Netanyahu and His Wife: We ask You to promptly resolve the current allegations against Netanyahu and his wife, Sara. Vindicate them according to Your righteousness and justice. Let the truth come forth and clear them from all allegations of corruption and restore shalom to their body, mind and spirit.
- Peace on Israeli Borders: We pray for peace on all side’s of Israeli borders – not just the southern border with Gaza, but also the northern borders with Lebanon and Syria. Father, You watch over Your people and let their enemy’s schemes and resources be destroyed and weapons disarmed. Father, we thank You for the discovery of Hezbollah’s terrorist tunnels. We ask You to stop their attacks on Israel, both hidden or in the light, and supernaturally protect Israel. Grant peace to Israeli borders and let violence no longer be heard in her land, nor ruin or destruction within her borders. We pray in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
Pray for Israel – Middle East Peace Plan (Updated)
【Current events: President Trump and his Middle East team have promised to launch a peace plan to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict. Trump has repeatedly said that he is standing with Israel on the matter of Jerusalem; he and his team are currently negotiating with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. The Trump administration had planned to announce its long-awaited peace plan in February next year, but due to many complicated factors, it may be postponed until March or April next year.】(Source: The Jerusalem Post)

Dear Abba Father, We thank You for the Trump administration’s Israeli policy and we pray of its efforts in the Middle East peace process. President Trump is Your chosen shepherd and he will accomplish all that pleases You. We declare that his peace plan will align with Your will and bless Jerusalem. We declare that the land of Israel is Your land and we believe in Your word that You have chosen Zion, saying, “This is my resting place for ever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it.” (Psalm 132:14) Lord, we ask You to expose any hidden plan or agenda that would harm Israel. Turn the hearts of the leaders of these countries, and let Your will be done in Israel and the Middle East on earth as it is in heaven. We pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Urgent Prayers for Nations
Pray for the persecuted Christians in Africa
[Current events: According to the Christian Tribune, Islamism is spreading rapidly in Africa, and radical Islamists or armed groups brainwash the public through violence, politics, and mass media. Currently, countries dominated by Islam in the east, west and north of Africa include the Republic of Mali, Tunisia and so on. At the same time, Angola, Algeria and Luanda have also imposed a new law on religion and have taken a lot of action to investigate and close down churches and arrest believers, causing the general population to have animosity against Christians.
International Christian Concern recently reported that extreme Muslim attacks and destroy the Egyptian church and forced Christians to go to the street to pray, but when the police arrived at the scene, the perpetrators had left, and the police ended up forced the church to close down.
At the same time, according to the British “Daily Express” report, Nigerian Christians are seriously facing the threat of massacres and genocide. Christians in the country account for 51.3% of the total population and 45% of Muslims. The observers of the “International Release” organization raised the question: Why couldn’t the Nigeria army protect unarmed people? some suspects that someone or a group is manipulating behind the scenes. And the government’s inaction shows that they are either unable to stop or they are not willing to deal with the problem of the persecution of Christians, this is of great concern】
- Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid John 14:27
- And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus Philippians 4:7
- if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land2 Chronicles 7:14
- In the Lord’s hand the king’s heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him Proverbs 21:1
- He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him Daniel 2:21 -22
[ Prayer ]
- Pray for the persecuted Christians and churches in Africa: Father God, may You keep the hearts of Christians, during persecution strengthen their faith in God, be merciful to them, give them grace and be bold and courageous, may Your love and peace go deep into their hearts, to experience Your presence, supply their needs. Give them the fire of prayers and raise them up to be the intercessory warriors over the seven mountains of influences of the country. To cry out and travail day and night, for the fire of revival to burn all over Africa. Just like the Algerian church grows more and faster with more resistance. The more the persecution, the more fervent and bolder they become. Lead their country to transformation, into the destiny, and to prepare the way of the Lord.
- Pray for African Muslim terrorists: Father God, although You are a God that hates sin, but You are also the God who loves all souls, please forgives these African Muslim terrorists for the sin of persecuting Christians. They don’t know that they have sinned against You. Please save their souls, reveal to them, as You reveal to Saul on the road to Damascus, convict them, to confess and repent for their sins in time, become zealous for You, and be a vessel to preach the gospel!
- Identification Repentance for the African Church and Christians who walked away from the will of God: Father God, we stand with the African church and Christians to confess and repent, asking You to forgive us for corruption, greed, fornication, apostasy, competition, and defilement, theft, lies, pride, polygamy, sin that defile the marriage, and steal the glory of God. Heavenly Father be merciful to us, for we don’t know what we are doing, forgive us for the sins of calling wrong, right. Calling black, white, blind leading the blind.

Pray Art & Artists
[Overview: Around the world, there is a company of artists emerging who are led by the ever creating Jehovah God. The sky demonstrates the handiwork of God speaking of Who He is; the sun, stars and nature reflect the glory of God. God as a master artist is always creating, ever designing, wooing our abandoned worship through artistic expression. The arts have been reclaimed to return glory to God, to reflect Him. ]
Lord Jesus, we ask You to
- anoint artists to speak life into a culture of death!
- call artists to demonstrate light in a world of darkness.
- pour out Your love through artistic expression so that those who are hungry for love, would be able to receive?
- call out of a Father’s love drawing His children into His embrace, without words, through visual expression。
- Use the artist’s hands to express what You are longing to tell the world . . . but they have shut their ears!
- Grant Your favour upon artists who know You, that their art would hang in galleries. That their art would be chosen because of the expression of light, life and love! Would You open doors for art to be in places of darkened understanding that are not open to hearing about You?
You used Bezelel as a skilled craftsmen, to express God’s instructions to Moses on what the tabernacle would look like. This is the highest form of artistic expression, to have the understanding and wisdom to express heavenly worship on earth, to demonstrate revelatory concepts in visual form. Lord, we dedicate our lives to holiness, to righteousness, that we may be vessels that You can express Your thoughts through.
