Prayer for America

Prayer for Revival

Continued Prayer for the outcome of the Hosting of October 24 Global Leaders Prayer Gathering and Movement Day Global Cities 2016 in New York City to impact New York City and the Nations of the world

PRAY

  • Let us continue to thank God for the successful hosting of the October 24 Global Leaders Prayer Gathering and Movement Day Global Cities 2016 and to also thank God for the roughly 1500 that attended the Gathering and 3000 that attended Movement Day.

 

  • Pray for that what was accomplished in the lives of these participants at the Prayer Gathering and Movement Day will help spark a move of God among the various churches and nations represented there, including the US and Europe, and particularly among Protestant denominations that are either stagnant or in a state of decline, evidenced by declining attendance of church members, lack of joy and vibrancy in worship services, little evangelistic fruits and low community impact.

 

Focusing on God’s healing of this divided nation

“America’s ills are not merely the result of corruption or racism, although these are evil. Our troubles can also be traced directly to ineffective Christians.” (Tony Evans)

“As Christians, we must take authority and pray over the principalities and powers that are at work in our nation, in the lives of those who are calling for violence or who are perpetuating violence. We saw in Sanford that we could come to a peaceful outcome when we took authority in the spiritual realm.”

Secular people don’t understand this, but those of us who believe the Word of God know that “our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Eph. 6:12, MEV) –  (Excerpted from an article by Steve Strang, Editor of  Charisma Magazine, 7/8/2016)

PRAY

  1. “For the church across America to come together as a whole to advance God’s Kingdom light, equity, love and principles in order to be a positive influence and impact for good in the midst of darkness, fear and hate.”
  2. “For the Christian community across America to stand together and commit to one another to usher in a wave of change, justice, life, safety, rightness, equity and dignity for all.”
  3. “That at this time peace, unity, love and non-violence will be our rallying cry and the catalyst for change in America.”

(Prayer Points Adopted from Tony Evans).

Prayer for the Newly Elected President, Mr. Donald Trump

Daniel 2: 21 (NIV)

“He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.”

Romans 13:1 (NIV)

“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”

In recognition that God deposes kings and raises up others and that there is no authority except that which God has established, let us recognize that God has established Mr. Trump as the 45th President of the United States in accordance to His sovereign purposes.   Let us therefore pray for Mr. Trump and for America for the outworking of this sovereign purpose for America.

PRAY

  1. Let us give thanks for the outworking of His sovereign will in the choice of Mr. Trump as the next President of the United States of America, in response to the much prayer of God’s people across the nation during 2016 for His intervention into the Presidential election.
  2. For President–elect Donald Trump to turn to God in recognition of His purpose, and desire to seek and to serve Him “who gives wisdom to the wise, knowledge and understanding to Him and grace to lead the Nation in humility.
  3. that God would surround Mr. Trump with godly men and women who will offer encouragement, support and wise counsel, resulting in God’s blessings on the nation.

Prayer for Europe

  1. Will terror in Europe halt ministry?

Christians who serve those fleeing wars in the Middle East say they are determined to show God’s love. | Erik Tryggestad | The Christian Chronicle | August 2016

‘Tragedy upon tragedy in this sad world needing salvation.”

Those are the words [that] Arlin Hendrix, a missionary in Lyon, France, used to describe his feelings after a terrorist attack about five hours to the south, in the seaside city of Nice…. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.

Hours later, the predominantly Muslim nation of Turkey — a gateway to Europe for thousands fleeing conflicts in the Middle East — endured an attempted military coup.

Days later, an axe-wielding, 17-year-old refugee … attacked passengers on a train in Germany.

Has the tension and fear changed the resolve of the Church of Christ members who serve the refugees?

Absolutely not, said Eleni Merlirrytos, [of] the Omonia Church of Christ in Athens, Greece.

“On the contrary, as we see the satanic forces attack innocent people, the more committed we feel to flood the world with the message of love and reconciliation of our Lord Jesus Christ,” said Melirrytos, whose husband, Alexander, ministers for the Omonia church. Eleni Melirrytos is the granddaughter of a refugee from Turkey, forced to flee to Greece from the Ottoman Empire in the 1920s.

Members of the Omonia church have opened their building to refugees from Syria and other Middle Eastern, predominantly Muslims nations. They cook meals, conduct English conversational classes and study the Bible with those interested.

“One refugee family told us they were taught that God lives in heaven,” Eleni Melirrytos said in a recent Dialogue with The Christian Chronicle. One member of the family told her that “you have shown us that God lives in our heart — and that has changed everything.”

In November, members of Churches of Christ in Europe who serve refugees will gather in Athens for a Refugee Ministry Workshop, …… The latest attacks in Europe emphasize the need for such workshops, McDonough said [a longtime missionary in Europe and Southeast Asia ].

PRAY

  1. That the Lord will strengthen the determination of the Christians in Athens to reach out to the refugees in their midst and that their concerns for personal comfort and safety will be replaced with the urgency to ‘infect’ people with the love of God.
  2. That the refugee ministry workshops, will be successful and they will not only be able to meet physical and material needs but also to freely share the saving Gospel of God’s love in Jesus Christ.
  3. That the political leaders will look up to God for help and that anger will give way to social peace and economic stability throughout the country.

 

  1. Council to reconsider Christian couple’s adoption offer

Published: November 18th, 2016

A council will reconsider a Christian couple’s offer to adopt their [own] foster children, following involvement from the Christian Legal Centre.

The couple were initially told they could not adopt the children, because of their “concerning” views about same-sex parenting.

But the local council this week recognised that the initial rejection was wrong and agreed to reconsider its assessment. The couple will now be assessed by someone outside the council.
Children’s best interest 

The couple has been providing foster care to two young children since early this year. Reports from social workers praised them for their “lovely care”, and stated that they “worked well with all professionals”. ….

When a social worker told them that a same-sex couple were being considered as adoptive parents for the children, the couple expressed surprise and concern. They then reiterated their offer to adopt the children themselves, arguing that this would be the “best option for them and their emotional well-being”

But the council rejected their offer to adopt, saying that their views on same-sex parenting were “concerning” and “could be detrimental to the long term needs of the children.”
In the parents’ letter to the council, requesting that they review their decision, they stated:

“We are Christians and we expressed the view that a child needs a mother and a father. We expressed our views in modest, temperate terms based on our Christian convictions.  We love everyone (regardless of sexual orientation) and we love the children and believe that they would benefit from the foundation offered by a mother and a father. 

“The decision appears discriminatory to us and not related to the children’s needs. The children love us: we love them. All the reports show that we are a loving, caring and stable family. What more could a child need?” ….

The council’s recognition that the initial decision was wrong and agreement to reconsider the couple’s application is a significant step forward.
Commenting on the new development, she [Andrea Williams, Chief Executive of the Christian Legal Centre] said:

“We are encouraged by the progress made this week, and grateful that the council has recognised its mistake and adopted a more appropriate stance. It is a step in the right direction.

“These developments highlight the value of Christians standing together, and where appropriate exposing the challenges that people are facing.

“There is still a long way to go, and we will continue to stand with this couple. Please pray with us that these young children are able to stay with them.” 
PRAY

  1. That the couple will be able to adopt the children who are already in their care;
  2. That as a result of this case, Christians in general will appreciate the value of standing together and of exposing the challenges that people are facing;
  3. That God will continue to bless and provide for Andrea Williams, Chief Executive of the Christian Legal Centre and that He will cause the Centre itself to be increasingly effective in defending Christians in trouble because of their faith in Jesus C hrist.
  1. Polish Bishops and President Duda Declare Christ King of Poland

By Michael W. Chapman| November 21, 2016 | 1:36 PM EST

Enthronment of Christ as King of Poland at the Chruch of Divine Mercy in Krakow, Poland, Nov. 19.

(Rorate caeli.) 

In a ceremony at the Church of Divine Mercy in Krakow last week, Jesus was declared the king of Poland.

The ceremony, attended by Poland’s President Andrzej Duda, marked the end of the Catholic Church’s Year of Mercy.

People from around the country came together and declared Christ king over their country and their hearts.

“In our hearts, rule us, Christ! In our families, rule us, Christ! … In our schools and universities, rule us, Christ! … Through the Polish nation, rule us, Christ! … We pledge to defend your holy worship and preach Thy royal glory, Christ our King, we promise!” they prayed.

Their bold statement was a reminder that God comes before everything.

“We entrust the Polish people and Polish leaders to you,” the prayer continued. “Make them exercise their power fairly and in accordance with your laws. … rule us, Christ! Reign in our homeland and reign in every nation – for the greater glory of the most Holy Trinity and the salvation of mankind.”

For many, the ceremony was the answer to the prayers of Polish nurse Rosalia Zelkova, who in the early 20th century said one day her country would have a divine revelation that Jesus is king.

Many believe this bold declaration is the start of something special in the country.

The Conference of Polish Bishops said it was “not the culmination, but the beginning of the work of enthronement of Jesus Christ in Poland and the Polish nation.”

The ceremony, they said, was not intended to add to Jesus’ honour or power, but was rather a national recognition of His sovereignty.

PRAY

  1. That God will bring about a mighty and deep spiritual revival in Poland, which will move the nation from a nominal allegiance to Christ and to genuine spiritual conversions;
  2. That God will raise up strong, anointed spiritual leaders and ministers who will feed the people with knowledge and understanding of the saving gospel of Christ and of the Holy Scriptures;
  3. That God will strengthen the political leaders and give them much wisdom and courage to lead the nation towards peace, stability and prosperity.

Scripture:  Psalm 138:1-8 NIV and Introduction

Iran

The underground church movement in Iran is growing despite the regime’s crackdown on Christians. Hundreds are being baptized in large ceremonies and people are praising Jesus for saving them from despair and suicide, according to Christian ministries working in the region.

Elam Ministries reported earlier this week that more than 200 Iranians and Afghans were baptized in a large service just outside the Islamic Republic of Iran, with eight different Persian-speaking churches attending.

The group said that 20 years ago, estimates put the number of believers in Iran at only 2,000–5,000 people, but new statistics are saying there could be anywhere between 300,000 to 1 million Christians in the country. William Stark, International Christian Concern’s Regional Manager for South Asia, responded to the report by telling The Christian Post that there have indeed been a number of indicators showing that the Christian faith has been growing in Iran.

“According to our contacts in Iran, the house church movement is seeing astounding growth. This is despite the intense persecution the house church movement faces from the government,” Stark told CP. “In fact, the Ayatollah in Iran has repeatedly warned against the house church movement, saying that it ‘threatens the Islamic faith and deceives young Muslims.’ The government has even dubbed evangelical Christians in Iran as a threat to national security because they are perceived to be backed by ‘enemies’ abroad,” he added. (STOYAN ZAIMOV, CHRISTIAN POST REPORTER, Nov 16, 2016)

  2. Pray that the incoming Trump administration will have wisdom in relating to Iran and in responding to the current Iranian nuclear deal.

Iraq

A suicide truck bomb claimed by Islamic State killed at least 70 people at a gas station south of Baghdad Thursday. Many of the victims were Iranian pilgrims who had taken part in a Shi’ite holiday in the Iraqi city of Karbala.

Authorities say buses full of people were parked at the time and that numerous vehicles were torched by the force of the blast in the city of Hilla. The pilgrims were headed back to Iran after visiting Karbala for the Arbaeen observance. Arbaeen marks the end of a 40-day mourning period for the killing of Imam Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, during the 7th century. Imam Hussein’s followers believe he was buried in Karbala. (VOA News, November 24, 2016)

http://www.voanews.com/a/fatal-car-bomb-attack-targets-iranian-pilgrims-in-iraq/3609968.html

The United Nations has reported a steady increase in the number of Iraqis displaced by the military operation to retake control of the northern city of Mosul from Islamic State militants.

That fighting has been going on for more than a month with Iraqi security forces, Kurdish fighters and Shi’ite militias advancing from the city’s outskirts towards the center. Islamic State has held Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, for more than two years.

The U.N.’s humanitarian office said in its latest report that 68,550 people have been displaced, with 14,000 of those coming in the past week. It warned that as fighting gets into more densely populated sections of Mosul there could be a much larger flow of people fleeing the city. The Iraqi Red Crescent put the total number of displaced at more than 85,000. Both organizations say they are doing what they can to get food and health aid to those in need. “Humanitarian needs are severe among displaced families in and out of camps, vulnerable residents of retaken communities, and people fleeing the intense fighting in Mosul city,” the U.N. said. (VOA News, November 22, 2016)

http://www.voanews.com/a/un-reports-steady-increase-in-mosul-displaced/3606707.html

  1. Pray for an end to the conflict and violence in Iraq. Also, pray that humanitarian aid will get to those who have been displaced because of the war.
  2. Pray for Mosul to be liberated from IS control.
  3. Pray for the defeat and dissolution of IS. Also, pray for the salvation of key IS leaders.
  4. Pray that those responsible for the death of the more than 70 pilgrims will be brought to justice.
  5. Pray for the protection, strengthening, and growth of the Church in Iraq.

Syria

Top United Nations aid officials warned Monday that health care services in Syria have been devastated by bombings and the nearly six-year-old conflict. “Over half the country’s public hospitals and primary health care centers are either closed or only partially functioning,” the World Health Organization’s representative in Syria, Elizabeth Hoff, told a meeting of the U.N. Security Council via a video link from Damascus. “Almost two-thirds of all health professionals have left the country; domestic production of medicines has dropped by two-thirds and vaccination coverage rates have dropped by half,” she said.

Hospitals, clinics are targets

The result is that many Syrians are dying of preventable diseases, not just war injuries. Hospitals and clinics have also become a prime target of government and Russian warplanes. Hoff said that in the first nine months of this year, there were 126 such attacks. Just this month, 11 hospitals were attacked in Aleppo, Idlib and Hama governorates — some more than once. “Many patients are simply too afraid to travel to hospitals or clinics because they fear attacks, detention or abuse,” Hoff reported.

BEIRUT —

All hospitals in Syria’s besieged rebel-held eastern Aleppo are out of service after days of heavy airstrikes, its health directorate and the World Health Organization (WHO) said, though a war monitor said some were still functioning.

White House national security advisor Susan Rice said the United States condemned “in the strongest terms” the latest airstrikes against hospitals and urged Russia, an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, to take steps to halt the violence. Intense airstrikes have battered the eastern part of the city since Tuesday, when the Syrian army and its allies resumed operations after a pause lasting weeks. They launched ground attacks against insurgent positions on Friday.

The war monitor, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said 48 people, including at least five children, had been killed in eastern Aleppo on Saturday by dozens of airstrikes and barrel bombs and dozens of artillery rounds. That brings the number of people killed by the increased bombardment of Aleppo and the surrounding countryside over the past five days to about 180, including 97 in the city’s besieged eastern sector, the observatory added. (Reuters, November 19, 2016)

Pray

  1. Pray for an end to the conflict and the reestablishing of peace in Syria.
  2. Pray for the reopening of hospitals in eastern Aleppo. Also, pray that the children of Aleppo would be kept from harm and be reunited with their families where separation has occurred.
  3. Pray for the protection and safety of medical and humanitarian aid workers.
  4. Pray for the protection, safety, and strengthening of the Church in Syria.

 

Nigeria

MAIDUGURI, NIGERIA —

“Chibok is now under Boko Haram siege,” the chairman of the Chibok local government area, Yaga Yarkawa, told journalists Tuesday in Maiduguri, the birthplace of Nigeria’s homegrown Islamic extremist group 130 kilometers (80 miles) to the northeast.

Nine villages within 25 kilometers (16 miles) of Chibok town have been razed in the past two weeks, with the last attack at Thlaimaklama village at the weekend, said Yarkawa. Boko Haram is employing scorched-earth tactics, rustling livestock, looting crops just ready to harvest, and burning homes and what crops they cannot carry, Yarkawa said. “Contrary to claims by government and security operatives, Chibok is not safe.” (Associated Press, November 22, 2016)

LAGOS, NIGERIA —

Thousands of children have died of starvation and disease in Boko Haram-ravaged northeastern Nigeria, Doctors Without Borders said Tuesday quoting a new survey that is forcing Nigerian officials to stop denying the crisis. The Paris-based organization hopes that official recognition of the calamity in which “thousands are dying every day” will help bring urgent aid before older children also start dying, Natalie Roberts, emergency program manager for northeast Nigeria, told The Associated Press.

A survey of two refugee camps in the northeastern city of Maiduguri shows a quarter of the expected population of under-5 children is missing, assumed dead, according to the organization. Northeastern Nigeria’s under-5 mortality rates are more than double the threshold for declaring an emergency, Roberts said in a phone interview from Paris.

Speaking on her return from northeastern Borno state, the birthplace of Boko Haram’s Islamic uprising, she said the absence of young children was striking. “We only saw older brothers and sisters. No toddlers are straddling their big sisters’ hips. No babies strapped to their mums’ backs. It’s as if they have just vanished,” Roberts said. (Associated Press, November 15, 2016)

http://www.voanews.com/a/new-msf-survey-thousands-of-kids-dying-in-northeast-nigeria/3597395.html

Pray

  1. Pray that the Nigerian government will continue to take strong action against Boko Haram. Also, pray for the defeat and dissolution of Boko Haram.
  2. Pray that those who have lost their homes and livelihood in the nine villages around Chibok town would receive aid from the community and charitable organizations.
  3. Pray that medical and humanitarian aid will get to the children in northeastern Nigeria.
  4. Pray for the strengthening and protection of the Church in Northern Nigeria.

Prayer for Christians Around the World Suffering Persecution

Facts about Global Persecution of Christians

advertisementBeheadings, imprisonment and eviction from ancestral homelands made 2015 the worst year on record for persecution of Christians, with North Korea topping a list of 10 oth                           Beheadings, imprisonment and eviction from ancestral homelands made 2015 the worst year on record for persecution of Christians, with North Korea topping a list of 10 otherwise Muslim nations as the most dangerous places for followers of the Gospel, according to a new report.

Islamic extremism and authoritarian governments combined to make last year the worst in modern history for Christians around the world, according to Open Doors USA. The trend spiked upward in the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia, with thousands of Christians killed or imprisoned, and even more chased from their homes.

“Islamic extremism continues to be the primary driving force behind the expansion of persecution,” said Open Doors President and CEO David Curry. “It is no longer just a Christian problem, but a global problem that must be addressed.”

It is no longer just a Christian problem, but a global problem that must be addressed.

– David Curry, Open Doors USA

An estimated 2400 churches were destroyed, while 7,000 Christians were killed for their faith in 2015, up nearly 50 percent from the previous year and the highest number since such statistics have been tracked. Nigeria, Eritrea and Pakistan were among the countries that experienced the biggest – and bloodiest – spikes.

“The report confirms what we have seen develop in these countries — a rise in Islamic extremism that tragically targets minority religions — especially Christians,” said Jay Sekulow, chief council for the American Center for Law and Justice. “The brutality is unspeakable, with nearly 1 million Christians being slaughtered or displaced in the Middle East.” (Source: Fox News, Perry Chiaramonte,  March 8, 2016)

Beheadings, imprisonment and eviction from ancestral homelands made 2015 the worst year on record for persecution of Christians, with North Korea topping a list of 10 otherw

Just in from Nigeria: “…at least 384 Christians have been killed so far in 2016…. already close to equaling the total killed in 2015, and barely half the year has gone by.” (Christian Post, July 28, 2016).

PRAY

  1. Let us praise God for the continued growth of His Church worldwide despite increased persecution of Christians worldwide.
  2. Let us continue to praise God the lives of those 7000 faithful martyrs from around the world that departed this life in 2015 and also during 2016, including those 384 Christians from Nigeria, that have been killed as a result of persecution.  Praise God also for the wonderful fruits their labor for the master have produced or will continue to produce in the advancement of His Kingdom worldwide.
  3. Pray especially for Christians in majority-Muslim countries that are targeted by Islamists extremists for persecution because of their Christian faith.  Pray for God’s protection and provision under those circumstances where the laws have failed to provide such protection and provisions.

 

Other Important Facts about the Global persecution of Christians:

  • 200 million Christians in more than 102 countries are affected by persecution, including kidnappings, sex-slavery, imprisonment, torture, and killings, including beheadings.
  • Persecution is “a form of religious-ethnic cleansing of Christian communities” resulting in mass migration and the sharp decline in the numbers of Christians in the Middle East and other countries across Asia and Africa.
  • Persecution is not just an issue for Christians but a human rights issue that affects us all. Christians, however, suffer harassment than any other religion in the world.
  • The incidence of persecution is highest in countries with a high level of religious extremism. (Source:http://www.christiantoday.com/article/pope.francis.sees.christian.genocide.as.persecution.affects.200.million.christians/60393.htm)

PRAY

  1. For increased awareness of persecution and its impact on Christians, living in countries in Asia, Africa and the Middle East, with the highest incidence of
  2. For Christians suffering persecution to experience God’s grace to enable them to (i) respond to their persecutors in the spirit of the love of Christ, who has called on His followers to love “your enemies” and bless those that “persecute you”; (ii) to remain faithful to Christ despite the sufferings they are enduring.
  3. For Christians in the West not only to become more aware and compassionate about the mounting persecution of Christians around the world but also to be moved by the Spirit of God to become involved with helping to bring relief to the plight of these believers through prayer, advocacy and other practical support.
  4. For governments of the West, international donor agencies and governments of nations where Christians face persecution to do more to enhance and protect the rights and freedoms of those suffering persecution and that these efforts would lead collectively to a decline in the mass migration of Christians and an increase of the Christian witness in affected countries.

Prayer for North Korea

  3. For the 50,000-70,000 Christians, imprisoned in labor camps, including American Christians detained in the country that are threatened by the North to receive harsher punishment. Ask God to sustain them.
  4. For protection of ministry partners who are bringing bibles and other practical and spiritual support to believers in North Korea, particularly American missionaries that are threatened with harsher punishment in response to US sanction against North Korean and Kim Jong-Un over the North’s dismal human rights violation records.

  6. That God would change the heart of Kim Jong-Un, and use him to reform the country.
