The word says: 1Timothy 2:1-3 “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth”. At 12noon and 10pm (local) we’ll intercede in prayer for leaders of nations and church leaders around the world accordingly. God bless you.
Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you…
(2 Thessalonians 3:1)
When the impact of God’s Word increases in a city or nation, it gives room for greater progress, great joy and prosperity. This happened in Bible days and still happens today. In Acts 8:5-8, the Bible says, “Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. And there was great joy in that city.”
Notice the latter part of the scripture above; it says there was great joy in the city of Samaria because the people received the Word of God gladly. The preaching of the Gospel brought great joy to Samaria. You know an atmosphere of joy is the right atmosphere for prosperity, peace and progress. Knowing this therefore, we’re to keep praying that the Gospel—the Word of God—will grow mightily all over the world and prevail.
We must keep praying that the Lord would grant Christian leaders and ministers of the Gospel utterance to speak the mystery of Christ boldly as they should. We must also pray that the Word being preached will be received with great joy, grow and prevail mightily, producing miracles, signs and wonders in the nations of the earth as it did in Samaria, and in Ephesus (Acts 19:20).
It’s important for us to keep interceding like this, because only the Gospel of Jesus Christ can guarantee prosperity, peace, progress and joy for any nation. As many more people receive the Word gladly, with faith and meekness, their mind-sets will be altered and the joy of the Lord will spring up in their hearts as gushers of living waters.
Join us as we pray with Pastor Chris at 12pm and 10pm (local time). We’ll intercede in prayer for leaders of nations and church leaders around the world accordingly, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness.
