Pray Against Persecution

We live on the verge of the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. We know from Scripture that global persecution is inevitable: “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake” (Matthew 24:9, NKJV). The Lord warns us through prophecies and Scripture to pray for ourselves and our children in advance for such a time.

Although persecution is unavoidable, we can still protect ourselves, our families, churches and even geographical areas from strong attacks by the enemy. If the prayers are done in consistency and long before the events, then it is indeed possible to receive mercy and live under the protection of God, as it is written in the 91st Psalm.

Therefore, do not be afraid, pray in advance for strength and mercy for the days before us.

Tips: Include such petitions daily in your prayers; ask at your church prayer meetings to petition for the church and geographical area of choice (village, city, state, province, country).

Thank you for the repost.

Celebration of Holywin

Dear brothers and sisters,
We are to celebrate “Holywin” [Christ’s victory over satan] on October 31st of every year from now on.  Everyone is to be generous of giving praises and thanksgivings to our God, Elohim, the Creator of this earth and all the people. Give intentional praises to God the Father for His Son’s sacrifice and the victory of Jesus over the kingdom of darkness. Christ has disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it! Therefore, there’s no place for any darkness in our midst, because we are complete in Christ, who is the head of all principalities and power. Turn on praise music and sing boldly along to celebrate the King of the Kings! Amen. This activity will combat negative effects of celebration of the Halloween. Read the Power Of Thanksgiving and Praise.

“Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty firmament! Praise Him for His mighty acts; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness! Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp! Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes! Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!” Psalm 150, NKJV

Please share for maximum victory!

The Sound of Marching

Mark, the evangelist, leaves us the following account:

Now John answered Him, saying, “Teacher, we saw someone who does not follow us casting out demons in Your name, and we forbade him because he does not follow us.” But Jesus said, “Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in My name can soon afterward speak evil of Me. For he who is not against us is on our side. For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.” (Mk. 9:38–41)

As Christian women, we need to have unity with each other. We do not need to agree on everything, nor do we need to pull each other from one church or denomination to another. Jesus’ name is enough for us to respect and agree with each other. The body of Christ is made up of people from all nations and all denominations. He seeks those who are obedient to His Word and who conform themselves to His likeness. There is much work to be done and many souls to be saved. This goal should be enough to unite us.

We can bear much fruit when we pray together: “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them” (Matt. 18:19–20). If every woman is faithful in her walk and prays for the things God shows her and what I listed in the beginning of this chapter, the results will be astounding in each home, church, and city. If each woman follows the expectations of the Lord’s army (as outlined in this chapter), the outcome will be revolutionary. If we could see through God’s eyes, it would look like the entire planet is covered in little light bulbs that are connected together in a golden net.

When we put our prayers on the altar, God will gather what we have prepared for Him. It will be His doing. Where we can’t, He can do the rest. It will be like with David:

Therefore David inquired of the LORD, and He said, “You shall not go up; circle around behind them, and come upon them in front of the mulberry trees. And it shall be, when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of mulberry trees, then you shall advance quickly. For then the LORD will go out before you to strike the camp of the Philistines.” And David did so, as the LORD commanded him; and he drove back the Philistines from Geba as far as Gezer. (2 Sam. 5:23–25)

Full Scope Intercessor

This level is truly a level where people have the ability or following one who has the ability to hear God’s voice directing the prayer needs. This level is for people who completely devoted their lives to prayer. They cover many areas, fast and pray. They are often guided by God through dreams, visions, gift of prophecy, discernment and unique interpretation of the Word of God. These individuals are nothing short of prophets (although they may never feel so.) But the kind of work God is doing through them is nothing short of prophetic anointing. They see things that others do not see, and understand things that others do not. They feel and know the heart of God. In this level a person daily covers Self & Family, Church, Expanded Circle, and City intercession besides other assignments given by God.

Note: These individuals usually have a prayer team or a praying partner. These individuals are perfect candidates to lead intercessory prayers for cities, countries, and breaking many stubborn strongholds. Do not feel intimidated if you can’t find a praying partner. God can still use you mightily.

Please share with others to advance the Kingdom of God and glorify Jesus Christ.

City (State, Country) Intercessor

In this level you already pray and cover the work of Self & Family, Church, Expanded Circle intercession. These levels gave you enough insight and experience in intercessory work. You might feel that God is calling you for more.  Interceding for many needs of your city or town, perhaps even your nation (country) may be your next step or level.

At this level you might already have a small team, which can consist of two or more people. Adding a partner can allow you to bring serious petitions for your city. At this level, it is important to have guidance of the Holy Spirit. God will equip and teach you Himself. Be prepared to fast, because interceding always leads to fasting.

City intercessory is a full time job and should be taken seriously. The joy and rewards are huge and so is the opposition. Feel free to take upon yourself only what you can handle. The bigger and stronger the team the more serious intercession can be done for your city.

What to pray for: revival, local government, leadership, neighborhoods, weather, peace, guidance, stores, safety, churches, schools, nursing homes, hospitals, salvation of souls, against principalities: abortion, human/sex trafficking, pornography, oppression of women or other group, homosexuality, drunkenness, etc.

“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings ad all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Tim. 2:1-4, NKJV)

Note: Never underestimate the power of two. The team of two with persistence, well planned and organized petitions and patience, can do wonders for any town and even country. If a partner can’t be found, pray on the level you can handle.

Please share with others for advancement of God’s Kingdom and glory of Jesus.

Expanded Circle Intercessor

It comes naturally to include in our prayers needs beyond our family and church. Here are some ideas that one can include:

  1. Praying for the salvation and needs of our friends, neighbors, coworkers, etc.
  2. Praying for companies we and our family members are employed by.
  3. Praying for the safety of our city and its government.
  4. Any other burdens God places on our heart (against sex trafficking or abortion).

Tip: Feel free to include as many people and petitions as God puts on your heart. Do not feel like you need to include many people, nor be afraid to have a long list. Take a load that you feel comfortable with. Have freedom to increase or decrease your list depending on how you feel.

Note: The above list of suggestions for your prayer is the job of an intercessor. God will be pleased even with a little. He can use these two fish and five loaves of bread from your hands to do miracles beyond imagination.

Church Intercessor

Intercession for the church comes natural after intercession for self and family. By interceding for the church and its members, we enrich and build immunity to self and the body of Christ. Praying for the church is part of the whole armor of God and should be practiced daily: “Praying always with all prayer . . . with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints” (Eph. 6:18, NKJV). Here are just some ideas:

  1. Pray for your pastor, his family and their needs.
  2. Pray for your church members, their families and their needs.
  3. Add to your praying list people that you feel a special burden given by the Lord.
  4. Pray for the needs and revival of your church.
  5. Pray for the persecuted church all over the world.
  6. Pray for a missionary that you know, or an evangelist.

Note: The above list of suggestions for your prayer is the job of an intercessor. God will be pleased even with a little. He can use these two fish and five loaves of bread from your hands to do miracles beyond your imagination. 

 Tip: Feel free to include as many people and petitions as God puts on your heart. Do not feel like you need to include many people, nor be afraid to have a long list. Take a load that you feel comfortable with. Have freedom to increase or decrease your list depending on your spiritual season.

Power of Thanksgiving and Praise

Rejoice always! Pray constantly. Give thanks in everything, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

While praying one day, God has given me the following vision: “When God’s people praise Him, their praises and thanksgivings come to the Lord in a form of a very pleasant incense. God breathes in this incense with delight, and after fully satisfying Himself with this incense of praise, it comes out in a form of an incense which is capable to disarm and paralyze a spiritual attack on behalf of the person who gives praise and thanksgiving. This substance (incense) is then collected into special jars and stored in a specially designated room. At a time of need, the angels pour out the contents of the jars on the earth. The incense literally paralyzes the oppression of demons in a way that they can’t see nor move.” How sad that many Christians have their jars completely empty and there is no paralyzing substance for their use. As a confirmation to my vision, the Lord pointed me to these passages:

“Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, and His praise in the assembly of saints. Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation. Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; to bind their kings (principalities & powers) with chains, and their nobles (satan’s armies) with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgement – this honor have all His saints. Praise the Lord!” (Psalm 149:1-2, 4-6, 8-9)

“But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.” (Acts 16:25, 26)

Praise, singing and prayer are at your rescue. May it never be only at a time of need but at all times!

Please share for the glory of our God! Be blessed! Thank you!

Three Kinds of Prayer

Copyright © 2018 Natalya Vazemiller This is excerpt from the book She Divides the Spoil

The Three Kinds of Prayer:

Prayer is an important part of being a Christian and a spiritual warrior, especially during spiritual combat. It is also an incense to the Lord: “Let my prayer be set before You as incense, The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice” (Ps. 141:2). God loves to hear us and receive our prayers. We are important to Him, and all what concerns us concerns Him. Let’s briefly cover the three prayers apostle Paul is talking about:

  1. We are to “. . . pray always with all prayer and supplication and at every opportunity in the Spirit” (Eph. 6:18a, NAB). Prayer is communication with God: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:6–7). In our prayers, we can tell Him our worries and problems, “casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (1 Pet. 5:7). All people of God prayed. Daniel was willing to be eaten by lions over missing His time with God in his daily prayer. In prayer, we make our needs known, we praise and worship God, converse with Him, and repent of our sins. Through prayer, we socialize with Him as with a friend, making a relationship with Christ possible.
  2. We are to “pray for all saints.” In the next verse, Paul writes “and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak” (Eph. 6:19–20). If Paul needed prayers, so do we. We are to pray for ourselves and others, for we all are in need of grace and support. We are a family and one body, and we should support each other. Praying for other saints helps us heal spiritually and physically “pray for one another, that you may be healed” (Jas. 5:16b). Isn’t it amazing? If we care for our body, we can be healed. The same applies to our spiritual body, the Church! We need each other! Praying for each other builds immunity within the body of Christ. We are being attacked by evil forces daily. We need as much immunity as we can get.
  3. We are to pray with “supplication in the Spirit.” It is written that: “. . . God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts . . .” (Gal. 4:6). This very Spirit is the Spirit of the Father, or the Holy Spirit as we all know: “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me” (Jn. 15:26). This Spirit helped Christ on the Earth to complete the ministry and bring Himself as the perfect sacrifice: “. . . who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God . . .” (Hebrew 9:14b). This Holy Spirit enables us to do the works of righteousness and overcome all obstacles and sustains us in all trials and leads us to salvation of our souls.

Prayer for a Church

This is a sample prayer for your church. Feel free to use as it or modify it to your needs.

“Lord, be the wall of fire around (Pastor (name), his wife (name), (name of other church leadership) and all church members); and may You be glorified through their work. Help them to proclaim Your truth with boldness and perseverance. Give them strength to continue their endeavor, support them in their spiritual and physical needs. Deliver them from unreasonable and wicked people. Lord, please deliver them from every evil work, and preserve unto Your heavenly kingdom. May through this be glory to You for ever and ever.

Our Father who are in heaven, hallowed be Thy name in (name of the church). Thy kingdom come to (name of the church). Thy will be done in (name of the church) as it is in heaven. Give Pastor ((name) and (name of pastor’s wife), leadership, members and frequent visitors of (name of the church)) this day their daily bread, the understanding and reverence of Your Word; the pouring out of Your Holy Spirit, the repentance of their sins and the first love for Your Son. And forgive their debts, help them to forgive their debtors, soften and prepare their hearts for repentance. And do not lead them into temptation, but deliver them from evil and evil one. For Thine is the kingdom, and power, and the glory, forever. Let the people love each other and tolerate each other’s differences. Visit with Your mercy and heal this church and all its members. Heal them and forgive them. Please, visit with Your mercy and the power of Your salvation all the members, their families and relatives. Please, bless all the church leadership and give them fear of Your name. Help them to make decisions that would benefit the people and would glorify You. Grant them all wisdom of how to handle anything that arises before them, so the people will be safe and unharmed. Keep the premises and activities from terrorism and natural and man-made disasters.

Lord God, in the name of Jesus, please raise up (name of the church) men to be the mighty men of God. Give them Daniels, Peters, Pauls, Jameses, Johns, and Barnabuses. May they proclaim Your truth with boldness and power. Bless this church’s pastor and men to pray and petition for the safety and revival of their people and city.

Lord, in the name of Jesus, please raise up people in (name of the church) to be prayer warriors and pray for the benefit and salvation of many. Thank you for all the members, personal and visitors. Please, bless them and give them the ability and wisdom to serve You and others so people may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. Lord of the harvest, please send out laborers into Your Harvest in (city name).

Our Heavenly Father, in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, hear this prayer of my petition before Your face. I repent for the sins of the people in (name of the church) and ask for Your mercy, forgiveness and salvation because of Your name and Your glory. I am aware that the people have sinned against You and Your laws and Your commandments. Also, I repent for any iniquity members of the (name of church) have committed, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled by departing from Your precepts and from Your judgements, from Your Word and from Your commandments. If they have forgotten to be your bondservants and went after their own follies and each their own ways. I repent if they allowed in their midst all sorts of sexual immorality, divorces, partiality, hypocrisy, all sort of uncleanness, extortions, murders, abortions, hatred, jealousies, envy, covetousness, revelry, contentions, drunkenness, smoking, outbursts of wrath, gossip and evil speech. I repent if they allowed spiritual laziness and for forgetting to be the salt and the light of the world. I repent if they allowed false doctrines to enter into their midst. I repent if they rejected the help and work of the Holy Spirit by doing everything on their own. I repent if on their post many souls are slipping away into hell while they are busy following and proving their agendas. I repent if they do not fast and pray for the lost.

I thank You for Your Son’s blood and His redeeming sacrifice. I thank You for Your mercy that (name of church) is being preserved by You. I thank You for preaching of Your Holy Word and the work of the Holy Spirit in this church. I thank You for the physical blessings You have been pouring out on the members. I thank you for Your providence with food, clean water, clothing, shelter, and peace.

May they realize, that they are weak but You are strong, they are fallen and without You they can do nothing. I humbly ask You to hear theirs and mine prayers and supplications and answer us because of Your Son’s sacrifice and Your mercy. Please, forgive them and pour out Your Spirit on them and move Your way amongst them for the salvation of many. Give the members unity, strength to persevere, faith, ability and willingness to serve You with prayer, fasting and no compromises.

Lord, be the wall of fire all around (Pastor (name) and (name of pastor’s wife) and his family, church leadership, members and frequent visitors of (name of church)) and reveal Your glory in their midst. May You bless them and keep them; may You make Your face shine on them, and be gracious to them; May You lift up Your countenance on them, and give them peace.

God grant them, according to the riches of Your glory, to be strengthened with the power through His Spirit in the inner man; so that Christ may dwell in their hearts through faith; and that they, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is breadth and length and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that they may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Heavenly Father, I pray in the name of Jesus, may their love abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that they may approve the things that are excellent, that they may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

Jesus, please help them to abide in Your Word and keep Your Word, so they shall never see death, know the truth and be set free. Lord Jesus, please help them to endure to the end and overcome in order to be saved and eat from the tree of life. Let them all be born again and enter through the small gate and walk the narrow path so they’ll be saved, find life and enter the kingdom of heaven. Work in them to will and to do everything for Your good pleasure. Help them to think on these things: whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue and praise. Lord, please deliver them from every evil work, and preserve unto Your heavenly kingdom: to You be glory for ever and ever.

Let the words of their mouth and the meditations of their hearts be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, their strength and Redeemer. May they be taught by You, and may great peace be with them. Direct their steps according to Your Word, and let no iniquity have dominion over them. Let them seek things that which are of Christ Jesus. Put on them the whole armor of God, that they may be able to withstand in the evil day and having done all to stand. May You, God of peace sanctify them completely; and may their whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

May You, the Lord, be their shepherd, so they shall not want. May You make them lie down in green pastures; May You lead them beside quiet waters. May You restore their souls; May You guide them in the paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake. Even though they may walk through the valley of shadow of death, may they fear no evil; may You be with them; Thy rod and Thy staff, may comfort them.

Make (Pastor (name) and (name of pastor’s wife), church leadership, members and frequent visitors of (name of church)) know Thy ways, O Lord; teach them Thy paths. Lead them in Thy truth and teach them, for You are the God of their salvation; for Thee they wait all the day. Remember, O Lord, Thy compassion and Thy loving kindness, for they have been from of old. Do not remember the sins of their youth or their transgressions; according to Thy loving kindness remember them, for Thy goodness’ sake, O Lord. Turn to them and be gracious to them, for they are lonely and afflicted without You. If the troubles of their heart are enlarged; bring them out of their distresses. Look upon their any affliction and their trouble, and forgive all their sins. Look upon their spiritual enemies, for they are many; and they hate them with violent hatred. Guard their souls and deliver them; do not let them be ashamed, for they take refuge in Thee. Let integrity and uprightness preserve them, for they wait for Thee. Redeem them out of all their troubles.

May (Pastor (name) and (name pf pastor’s wife), church leadership, members and frequent visitors of (name of church)) dwell in the shelter of You, the Most High and may they abide in the shadow of You, the Almighty. May they say to You, that “You are their refuge and their fortress, their God, in whom they trust!” May You deliver them from the snare of the trapper, and from the deadly pestilence. May You cover them with Your pinions, and under Your wings may they have refuge; may Your faithfulness be their shield and bulwark. May they not be afraid of the terror by night, or of arrow that flies by day; of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or of the destruction that lays waste at noon. When thousand fall at their side, and ten thousand at their right hand; may it shall not approach them. May they only look on with their eyes, and see how the wicked turn to You in repentance unto salvation. May they make the Lord, their refuge, even the Most High, their dwelling place. May no evil will befall them, nor may any plaque come near their tent. May you give Your angels charge concerning them, to guard them in all their ways. May they bear them up in their hands, least they strike their feet against a stone. May they tread upon the lion and cobra, the young lion and the serpent may they trample down. May they love You, so You can deliver them; may You set them securely on high, because they have known Your name. May they call upon You, and May You answer them; may You be with them in trouble; may You rescue them, and honor them. With a long life may You satisfy them, and let them behold Your salvation.

Lord, You see all those who are sick and having surgeries and other medical procedures. Heal them, help them through all the things they endure. May they be comforted and strengthened by You. May all of them be ready to meet You, if You want to take their lives. Lord, You see all the children and relatives of the members who are struggling in their faith and may not know You, open their spiritual eyes and ears to see You and believe upon the name of Jesus Christ; set free those who have addictions or demon possessions; strengthen marriages of all the members so You will be glorified. Help Pastor (name) to preach boldly Your Word and stay away from compromises. Give (name of pastor’s wife) wisdom how to support (name of Pastor).  Amen.”
