21 DAYS PRAYER AND FASTING FOR NIGERIA PRAYER POINTS FOR WEDNESDAY 7TH FEBRUARY 2018 1. Pray for the vision and message of our ministry to continue to prevail and gain access and acceptance in every nook and cranny of this nation, bringing hope to the peoples of Nigeria, and empowering them to arise and be a blessing to the nation, rather than looking to the government as their source. LUKE 8:40 – And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people gladly received him: for they were all waiting for him. ISAIAH 60:3- And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. 2. Pray for our civil service across the nation, that bureaucracy and apathy be completely extinguished from all parastatals of government at all levels. Pray for a change of attitude for our civil servants, that there would be new zeal, inspiration, and patriotism in their hearts to do their work with diligence and commitment , thereby contributing to nation-building. PROVERBS 18:9(TVC) – Those who slack off at work are no different from vandals. ECCLESIASTES 10:18(AMP) – Through indolence the rafters [of state affairs] decay and the roof sinks in, and through idleness of the hands the house leaks. 3. Pray and declare a renewed commitment to infrastructural development across the country by government from the local councils to the federal level. Declare that in this new day, because of our prayers, it is not business as usual, but available resources are applied wisely and judiciously to meet the most pressing needs, while the leaders explore innovative and viable avenues to generate more revenue to undertake further projects in order to create an environment and provide amenities that foster growth of the local economies and encourage investment and development. NEHEMIAH 2:17-18 - Then said I unto them, Ye see the distress that we are in, how Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire: come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a reproach...And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work. 4. Pray specifically against corruption in our nation, declaring a complete change in the mindsets and orientation of our leaders and populace in the direction of true patriotism and selfless love for our nation. Pray for the anti-corruption agencies of state, that they would function without bias or partiality, diligently and conclusively prosecuting all who have soiled their hands with public resources. Declare that all corrupt officers in these agencies are exposed and shamed, from the least to the greatest, and all those whom they have helped to escape justice are speedily apprehended. PSALM 64:5-7[TLB] – They encourage each other to do evil. They meet in secret to set their traps. “He will never notice them here,” they say. They keep a sharp lookout for opportunities of crime. They spend long hours with all their endless evil thoughts and plans. But God himself will shoot them down. Suddenly his arrow will pierce them. 5. Pray fervidly against violent attacks on churches and places of Christian worship in this country. Declare heightened activity of angels in and around all church auditoriums and Christian gatherings everywhere in this nation, beyond the physical security arrangements made, such that nothing and no one shall be able to cause hurt or harm to the saints by any means. We are not victims; the power of the Holy Spirit intervenes through us; the church is marching on, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. GENESIS 19:10(MSG) – But the two men (angels) reached out and pulled Lot inside the house, locking the door. 11Then they struck blind the men who were trying to break down the door, both leaders and followers, leaving them groping in the dark. 6. We declare today that everyone in government who secretly or openly sponsors or promotes violence and hostility against Christians and the church is removed by the hand of God. Men of violence and all who hate the church will proceed no further in our nation. As God’s voice in this land, we declare their offices vacant; they are speedily removed and replaced by men of peace who favour the church and seek her good. As was the case with Haman, who hated the Jews without cause, so shall their end be, unless they repent and accept Jesus as Lord. ESTHER 3:6 – “...wherefore Haman sought to destroy all the Jews...” ESTHER 7:8, 10 – As the word went out of the king's mouth, they covered Haman's face. 10So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified. Do like, share and comment .
Luke 17:12 - 19 Luke 7:36 - 48 1 Kings 3:3 - 5 One thing worth always remembering is this: God will always respond favourably to whatever you deliberately do to Him because He is your God. Many people, in fact most people, do not remember to relate to Christ, deliberately, with recognition of Him as their "Deity". They call Him Lord. They call Him God. They call Him creator. But, unfortunately, they are not conscious of Him as their "Deity". A deity is a supernatural being WORSHIPPED as the CONTROLLING AUTHORITY of some part of the world or some aspect of life or who is the PERSONIFICATION of a force. Jesus Christ is THE SUPERNATURAL BEING who controls ALL aspects of life and is the PERSONIFICATION of THE ultimate force. To recognise Jesus as your "Deity" is to deliberately set times and periods of WORSHIP and THANKSGIVING to Him. The people of the world dress up specially and take gifts, sacrifices and offerings to worship deities etc But these are all dead, powerless deities. The evil spirits behind these deities are mobilised by these worship. Dearly beloved and esteemed brethren. What about you the Christian? Do you worship the Highest Power of all, Jesus Christ, deliberately because of His Lordship over ALL? Jesus Christ responds favourably to our Worship and Thanksgiving all the time. December 17th has been set apart and consecrated as the day that we will Worship, Thank and Serve our Lord Jesus Christ deliberately as our God. On that day, dress brightly, gaily and gorgeously in the best fashion that you own. Dress your best and come and thank Him. Come with the best Thanksgiving gift to your "Deity": Jesus Christ. Very importantly, go, along with friends. You must not go alone. Jesus Christ will respond favourably to your public declaration of Him as your God and your Lord. Read also 2 Samuel 6:11 - 23. God bless you. #BLW #HolyNation #Thanksgiving2017 #Yearofflourishing
