Global Prayer Targets
Be Watchful. Be Prayerful

While we are always to be in prayer for those in leadership, I feel it’s a rather urgent time for men and women in leadership positions to be surrounded by serious, ongoing prayer. Not just, “bless them, Lord” types of prayer, but strategic prayers against pride, self-focus, sin of any kind, and the accompanying blindness that keeps them from seeing, and thus repenting from destruction in their own lives and the lives of those who follow them.
It makes me think of the scripture in II Thessalonians 2:1-3, “Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; FOR THAT DAY WILL NOT COME UNLESS THE FALLING AWAY COMES FIRST, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, showing himself that he is God.”
Let Him Increase
This is an excerpt from one of Jane’s blogs. For the complete blog see Let Him Increase.
A friend of mine brought my attention to an article recently published in Charisma magazine. The title was, “Do You Hear the Alarm?” The author was speaking about a storm coming. I am not an alarmist by nature. Yet, with the increased sound of hate speech and violence in the world, it is impossible to not realize we are living in times that are revealing greater darkness. The need for light, brilliant light is being sought out in an ever-increasing way. People are looking for hope, for encouragement, and for the firm foundation that truth brings. . . I feel there is an urgency to take some necessary steps, as the Lord has been prompting. We do this without a sense of fear, but of preparation.
- Take more quiet time to sit in His Presence.
- Take time to commune with Him.
- Pray from the position of peace.
- Speak from that place of inner quietness.
Let Him increase within you so your light becomes even brighter.
