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).
