JERICHO WALLS INTERNATIONAL PRAYER NETWORK
Communication regarding 22 April 2017
After consultation with Angus Buchan, Jericho Walls International Prayer Network is sending out the following guidelines for prayer for It’s Time 22 April 2017:
Make every effort to GO to Bloemfontein and join other believers to ask God to forgive us our sins, heal our land and for spiritual revival.
Some suggestions for THOSE THAT CANNOT be in Bloemfontein on 22 April:
Invite other Christians to your home for a time of prayer. Try to do it between 12:00 and 14:00 – which is the time that the meeting in Bloemfontein will take place.
Try to find Christians from different denominations, languages and races to join for prayer.
Ask your local church to organize a time of prayer (preferably between 12:00 and 14:00)
If you are in a situation that you cannot join other people, set aside a definite time of prayer and join Christians around the country in prayer.
Let us now forget about the “million” that will meet with God in Bloemfontein. Let us from this point forward focus on meeting with God. Let us restrain ourselves from taking matters into our own hands.
Allow God to break up the fallow ground in your heart.Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord, till He comes and rains righteousness on you. You have plowed wickedness; you have reaped iniquity. You have eaten the fruit of lies, because you trusted in your own way, in the multitude of your mighty men. (Hosea 10:12-13).
Allow God in the coming days to give you a contrite (broken, humble) heart.For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite. For I will not contend forever, nor will I always be angry. (Isaiah 57:15-16).
Ask the Holy Spirit to show you any form of unforgiveness or bitterness in your heart. Confess what needs to be confessed and ask the Lord to deliver you from every root of bitterness.And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors… For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. (Matthew 6:12-15).
Let us pray, amongst other things, for:
everything that is not born of God to be revealed and destroyed;
the salvation of the unsaved,
a national spiritual revival,
the plight of the poor and needy,
an end to corruption and crime in government and business
an end to disregard of life (rape, murder, all forms of domestic violence),
an end of racism on all sides,
deliverance from any forms of depression, fear, anxiety, anger, frustration and stress,
and let us in prayer resist the spirit of immorality.
