When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him and put him to flight [for He will come like a rushing stream which the breath of the Lord drives] (Isa.59:19)
We are all aware of the turmoil that is caused by jihadist/extremist Islamic groups, especially the IS (Iraq and /Syria), Boko Haram (Nigeria), Al Qaeda, and Al-Shabaab (Somalia) and other jihadist terrorist groups in the Middle East.
As Christians we believe that the most effective and powerful thing we can do to bring change and peace in this situation, is to pray for these situations.
A number of organizations decided to set aside 50 hours of non-stop prayer and worship during 25-27 September 2014. This will happen at 4 venues in the Middle East.This is a call on the church globally to join in this time of prayer. We encourage you to pray about the following:
- For Christians to faithfully persevere; for their protection, provision for their basic needs and that they will boldly proclaim Jesus
For the influence of the demonic forces and evil alliances to be broken and destroyed.
- For extremists/jihadists to meet Jesus Christ as their Saviour and as the Prince of Peace. (Percentage wise more radical/jihadist Muslims are coming to the Lord than any other group amongst Muslims.)
- Watch the news and prayerfully ask the Holy Spirit to guide you on how to pray.
