24/7 Prayer (2020-7-26～2020-8-1)
——Intercession for the country
1. Enter into destiny – gratitude and self-cleansing
(1) Give thanks:
Give thanks to the church for raising up an army of children
Lord , our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens. Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
Thank God for raising up the children of the church and being protected by God. God the Father personally took care of them, so that children’s lives were built up in Christ from an early age and raised up into a generation with spiritual influence.
(2) Self-cleaning and repentance:
2. For the king and the reigning
At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.
The Bible says that the country where the Lord is God is blessed… When the governance of the government becomes further and further away from God’s standards, the country falls into corruption. The shaking of God is to turn us back to Him.
Pray for repentance for the New Zealand ruling party has formulated many laws that are not in line with God’s will.
Prayer：May the Lord forgive New Zealand’s superiors for not fearing God. May the Lord show your righteousness and compassion, so that our prime minister and the ruling team can govern the country with justice, compassion, humility, and fear of God. Help us in the September elections to reverse ungodly laws (legalization of marijuana, legalization of euthanasia)
——Intercession for the peoples of this land-intercessors of the world
[2 Chronicles 7:14]
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 land.
God has called millions of soldiers of prayer in this generation to confess their sins and repent, humble themselves, seek God’s face, and close the gap. God longs for his people to return to him, stand on the gap and pray for the country.
Chinese people play a very important role in the army of millions of prayers. When the global Chinese are raised up, all nations and peoples will follow suit.
Prayer：Father! You are a merciful and gracious God who is slow to anger. You are here to have mercy on this generation and restore this generation. The intercessors you raise up is to focus solely on you and live a life of God’s love, peace, and joy. May your new wine and oil be poured into this generation, the Joshua generation, where the soles of your feet step on to reign with you.
——Pray for the churches
“I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak…” (Ezekiel 34:16a)
“If this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment.” (2Peter 2:9)
“Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” (John 4:35)
•For churches to receive vision to mentor the Lord’s workers – able to listen to God’s voice, have values and visions for God’s kingdom and be a talented disciple of the Lord.
•Continue to renew the altar in the church, understanding the will of God, cleanse and heal this land.
•For churches to rise up, knowing the fields are ripe for harvest, be diligent in sowing and reaping in the work of the gospel.
——Pray Israel and the nations
“Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.” (Revelation 12:7-8)
Israel is going through the second wave of the COVID pandemic, thousands of cases are being confirmed daily; especially in the ultra-orthodox Jews who care for community life.
The economy shut down, one of Israel’s most important industry – the tourism business has almost no income.
The protest and large-scale demonstrations had turned into riots and bloodshed between the police and civilians.
Prayer: Rise up the body of Messiah: Lord Jesus! You are the king of Israel, the sovereign ruler of the whole land and the king of kings. You had spoken: “In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations…” (Haggai 2:6-7a).
You are shaking Israel, destroying, and uprooting the influence and control of the enemy on Israel. In the midst of shaking, may You rise up the body of Messiah; in the times of trouble they will still cry out to the Lord with the sound of praise and respond to God’s calling for Israel, receive the spiritual inheritance and bless all nations. Pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
2．For the nations – India
Located in Asia, India is the second most populated country. Despite the country was in lockdown since March this year, the pandemic has worsened. Over the past week, the number of the confirmed case in a single day was approaching 20,000. The current total number of confirmed cases have exceeded 900,000 which is the fourth-highest in the world and second highest in Asia (following Russia).
The founder of India’s “Father’s Heart ministry” Pastor Anton Cruz had sent an emergency prayer letter, The Chennai state where they are based has nearly 4,000 confirmed cases daily; hospital and schools are full of patients, many doctors and nurses have caught the virus and even died from it. The pandemic had caused an economic recession in the country and local institutions are facing a financial crisis. The conflict at the Chinese and Indian border had made India’s problem worse.
“‘Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.” (Jeremiah 33:6).
“Listen, my dear brothers and sisters: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him? “ (James 2:5).
“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.” (Psalms 89:14).
Prayer: Heavenly Father! You have responded the prayers for the nations from the children at the children’s house of prayer numerous times and performed many signs and wonders. And now, they are facing most severe pandemic in the country; through fasting, prayer and calling for Your mercy and healing, may You lead them to a breakthrough and fulfil the prayers they have made, as according to Your faithfulness. Father God! Let Your name be praised both now and forever!
You are speaking to India through this pandemic. What is impossible for men is possible with God! The Prime Minister of India has publicly declared: Only God can save! By the cry out of the Indian authorities and the people, may You save India in supernatural ways, cease the pandemic, let the people experience You are their healing God, lead entire India to repent, be healed and rested, heal the people of the city and reveal to them Your abundant peace and security (Jeremiah 33:6)!
