The average time that is spent praying in our churches is infinitesimal in comparison to the other activities. Even when a church reserves a special time for prayer; it is usually used for praying for the church, its ministries, and the congregation.
This is very good, but this type of prayer is just the beginning. We need to forge ahead to pray for all people all over the world.
The Bible tells us to pray for all people and to pray for their leaders. Joel 2 tells us to cry out to God to “Save Thy People, Oh Lord”. If The Christians aren’t praying for all people and all circumstances, then who will?
Today, and I believe it is because of the lack of prayer in our churches; human suffering, and crimes against humanity are proliferating all over the world. The crimes of human trafficking, gang stalking, porn production/distribution, pedophile rings, snuff films, drug trafficking, abortion, child abuse and human/animal sacrifices are out-of-control.
Why? I believe it is because the church is not praying for these victims and perpetrators simply because they are not aware of the horror going on all around them. Many of these crimes are going on in homes, buildings, and secluded areas in our own cities, but they are all “covert” crimes.
In short, these crimes which are the worst of all crimes are all done in secret. Great attention and expense is given to keep these most evil crimes completely hidden from the public view.
I know because I have been gang stalked now for 7 years right in the middle of a
neighborhood that is supposed to be a “Christian-oriented” area. Gang stalking is a form of persecution and harassment that is continuous 24/7.
The perpetrators, will try and cause you to have an accident if you drive on the road, and they come into your home while you are out, and they put blood, urine and feces in your home so that you will not want to go out.
You have your name slandered, and so no person wants to befriend you because of the gossip that they have heard. The pastors are also wary of you because of what they have heard.
You are being harassed at home day and night with loud noises, remotes through the walls that cut off your TV and PC, hacking, wiretapping and all types of vandalism and trespassing.
They killed my little dog at Halloween in 2006, and so you cannot have a pet, and they also kill the wild birds that come to my feeder. They steal your property, but it is all done covertly.
The crimes of gang stalking and all of the other covert/secret crimes are all described and documented on the Internet, and yet the church ignores all of these tortured people in their prayers.
The church has been given all authority over evil, but we are not using it. These crimes will not just go away through legislation; but they will be stopped when the hearts of evil men and women turns to almighty God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
These covert crimes are different from the ordinary rape, murder and molestation done by individuals acting alone. Why? Because evil people are making millions and billions of dollars off of the suffering of innocent people.
These racketeers have infiltrated almost every community in America and most countries. They have learned that as long as good people do nothing; they can thrive.
The only people that have the real power are those who have made Jesus Christ their Lord, Savior and Master. They have been given all authority over Satan, and nothing will hurt them, but we must not rejoice in that, but that our names are written in the Lamb’s book of Life.
Prayer is the greatest thing that Satan attacks in the church. Why? Because a few Christians praying in love, unity and according to the will and Word of God can transform the whole world.
The Lord Jesus said that His Father’s House shall be called a House of Prayer for all people, but we have made it a den of thieves. Yes, that is true today as well as when Jesus spoke those words.
Today, many churches have become a little more than clubs and businesses. They have forgotten their main purpose which is to grow up into the image of Jesus Christ, and to become intercessors for not only their own people but for all people of the world.
A small church came together to pray about a serial killer who had not been caught in decades, and within one month; the man was prosecuted.
I was a missionary in Korea for 13 years, and during that time; the people of God always turned to God through prayer over every situation.
In the Congressional election; the wrong person was about to be put into power. However, the Korean Christians prayed together in the city hall area.
What happened? The weather in the district of the wrong candidate's supporters was horrible on the election day, but it was bright and beautiful in the district of the preferred Christian candidate's supporters.
The best man won due to the intervention and intercession of the Christians. If only the Christians in other countries understood their great power through agreeing and prayers according to the will of God.
Matthew 18:19, “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
Our lovely Lord is calling out to all of His people today to: “Blow the trumpet in Zion, sound the alarm, let all the people tremble because the day of The Lord is coming, and it is nigh at hand.
What does it all mean? It means that according to Joel 2:2-11, many very frightening things will be coming upon the earth. Unprecedented things will be coming.
The earth will quake and everything will be shaken, and only what is of the Lord will remain standing.
The Lord implores all people to turn to Him before the Day of The Lord, and before it is too late. He tells us to relent, repent, turn to Him and rend our hearts, and He says for His people to hold a fast and a solemn assembly.
God tells us to fear not and to rejoice and be glad. Why? Because He is going to bring the former and latter rains, and all the vats and floors will be full.
He requires the pastors and ministers to cry out to Him and to pray for Him to spare the people. Then the Lord said that He will take pity on the people, and He will send corn, oil and wine to bless them.
Our God will remove the northern army from out midst, and He will destroy them. He will then restore all that the locust, caterpillars, cankerworm and palmer worm have eaten, and he will never allow His people to be ashamed again.
After that He will pour out His spirit upon all flesh, and there will be great prophesyings, dreams, visions and great wonders in the heavens and earth.
The Lord will save all those that call upon His Name! What a wonderful day that will be.
Joel 2:31, “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.”
32And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem whom the LORD shall shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant call.
People of God, please call solemn assemblies in your home, your businesses, your churches to pray for God to spare the people and to deliver those who are being victimized and the perpetrators who are making money off of the pain and suffering of countless, innocent people and children.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Prayer is the greatest thing that we can do for any person, and You said that what we do unto the least of these; we are doing it unto You. Help us to pray for those being used, abused, tortured, killed, persecuted and destroyed.
We pray that You will expose all of the evil deeds of darkness going on both covertly and in the open, so that they eyes of the good people will be opened to their needs.
We pray that all of the works of Satan will be destroyed in our area, our country and all over the world. We pray that You will raise up a mighty standard of intercessors, worshipers and prayer warriors to pray for all of the people, especially those who cannot pray for themselves and who have been targeted for evil.
Father, please bring to our minds the needs of those who are being tortured in isolation and those who are being harassed in their own homes, communities and they feel helpless and alone.
Please comfort them, and deliver from them from all harm and evil, and please bring their persecutors to repentance so that justice can be served in the end.
Please bring everything that is going on around our area to come to our attention so that we can pray more effectively, and please give us Your Spirit of prayer, intercession, revelation, and the gift and fruit of faith from You.
Please cause Your people to rise up against Satan’s empire of evil which has infiltrated out neighborhoods, our area, our countries and the world. Please give all of us the spirits of Joshua, Caleb, Josiah, Jehu, and Elijah to confront the evil Jezebel and spirits of greed, sadism, envy, and all spirits that are bound in heaven.
Please pour out Your Spirit and move mightily to bring love, joy, peace, faith, hope, kindness, and total liberty for all of the captives, both the victims and the perpetrators.
Please Father, draw all of us together in love, unity and prayer to take back our home, our areas, our countries and the world for Your Kingdom, power and for Your glory.
We ask everything in the Name which is above every name in heaven and earth, the Name of Jesus Christ, The coming King of kings and Lord of lords.
Amen, amen and amen.
