Please continue to follow the direction of this fast. As we continue to study the WORD of God, pray and wait on the LORD, His grace for victory and all-around restoration is released in our lives in Jesus Name.
God is calling us to stand in the gap and make up the hedges for our communities. He says that “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
God wants to heal our lands. He wants to intervene in our communities, but we need to stand in the gap and begin to pray for the land and the people. Until there is supernatural intervention in the land, there will be no breakthrough for the Church.
God says that if we sincerely pray and ask for the land, He will heal the land, give us breakthrough and cause us to possess the land spiritually, and excel in it.
“Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.” – Psalm 122:6 (NLT)
Our country, the cities, and neighborhoods desperately need the life-giving renewal and redemption that flow from Christ’s life, death and resurrection. Praying for the work of God in our cities is one of the beautiful ways we join God in His renewal and redemption of our city.
Your first Jerusalem is your immediate community, neighborhoods, and country. We are called to pray for its peace, security, prosperity, and salvation.
So today’s prayer focus is to pray for our land.
