A GLOBAL SHAKING
We are facing the reality of our mortality. People are looking for answers. Grocery store shelves are empty. Economic disruption around the world. Schools are closed.
What is God saying to us?
Reverend Jody Wood, Director of New York City Intercessors/UN Global Prayer, joined IFA to pray with us about the coronavirus pandemic.
This global pandemic is a global opportunity. It is affecting the whole world. If we, as the Church, will arise and shine (Is 60), we can see the greatest global harvest we have ever seen, which is what we have been praying for!
When we don’t know what’s going on, we need to go to the Bible.
The structures of nations are shaking and the Lord is desiring to reset the foundation of nations.
God is on His throne. God uses all things. If we engage, we will see the supernatural work of God.
Hebrews 12:26 (TPT): The earth was rocked at the sound of his voice from the mountain, but now he has promised, “Once and for all I will not only shake the systems of the world, but also the unseen powers in the heavenly realm!”
We are going to build God’s foundations into the capital stones of every state and our nation.
We pray Your Word and we speak it out so that it will do what it was accomplished to do. God, you have not created this virus, but You are using it for Your purposes. (Rom 8:28)
Pray that God will shake the ungodly, occult structures in our nation and reset our foundations with God’s kingdom principles—that only what is unshakeable will stand.
God, You are holy and You are a devouring fire. Build altars of worship throughout this nation, dismantle the structures of occult in our families, communities, and nations.
Lord, release the shaken so that the things that can be shaken will be removed so that Your foundations will be established. May that which needs to be shaken and that which needs to stand will stand.
The economy: God says, “Stand back and let me shake what needs to be shaken.”
Father, thank You that You will not let the market drop below what is unrecoverable. You have a bottom established that will not be crossed and You have a strategy. We pray that You will raise up investors and leaders who have Your heart and bring them to the forefront and raise up a mighty kingdom economic system that will bring glory to Your Name.
We ask You, God, that America will not be known for wealth but for dependence on a great God. Bring down greed and the kingdom of Baal.
Our leaders are making decisions every day, throughout the day. There is a necessity for our leaders to hear real solutions, not counterfeits:
Intercessors need to agree with God in putting an end to the “old ways,” and ask God to remove every leader whose season and time is part of the old ways that God is wanting to cease.
Father, You are the wisest counselor, You are seated in heavenly realms and You preside over the nations.
We declare that the old ways are shaken and brought down. You are removing all those who are part of the old ways, and like Esther, You are putting in place everyone who is called for such a time as this.
As we fast and pray, we pray that our leaders would fast and pray.
We legislate from the courts of heaven, that anything that is any proposed legislation that is not of You, God, would be removed. May leaders rise up like Joshua and Caleb to hold the line in righteousness.
Resist through prayer any efforts put forth to globalize and reduce the sovereignty of nations:
We pray Psalm 3 and Psalm 2:8—God’s inheritance is the nations. We need to legislate in the global community from the perspective of nations. The nations look to America and God’s grace has been upon us.
God is answering our prayers! Pray for miracles of healing! God doesn’t desire anyone to perish.
Pray for President Trump to protect the sovereignty of our nation. We pray against a one-world order that would bring evil everywhere.
We pray against counterfeit solutions. We pray for any evil motives to be exposed to our leadership. Give President Trump discernment about the character of those around him.
Our Assignment: Perfect Love Casts Out Fear
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. (1 John 4:18)
Our greatest weapon is the perfect love of God. Everyone is being touched by fear and fear is NOT from God. There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out all fear. This is something we ALL can do.
We can graft in a root of fear and a generation of fear by our reaction or we can lift up a generation to launch them into their destiny through love.
Pray for those who are afraid!
Our greatest weapon is to pray and demonstrate the perfect love that we have been given from God. (Rom 5:5)
We pray that out of this comes a GENERATION OF FAITH.
God, release Your Church to release Your LOVE. May Your people speak words of faith and peace and hope. We pray for Your global Church, of all ages, that we can all be used in this historic, unprecedented time. May we be a lifeline to those in fear.
We pray and declare that the Gospel will go viral, becoming an epidemic of global proportions of incredible numbers of salvations.
The enemy says don’t waste a crisis, You say don’t miss an opportunity.
We pray that we will rise up to the challenge and become the sons and daughters of inheritance to share the good news with everyone we come in contact with so that You will be glorified and we will see Your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.
