REVIVAL IN AMERICA, ISRAEL, IRELAND, AND ALL THE NATIONS

"If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

PRAYER FOR OUR PRESIDENT

We must pray for our President, so that we might live in peace. Not only is this a scriptural mandate, but it is the Lord's directive
(1 Timothy 2:1-4).

To neglect the promptings of the Holy Spirit could have dire consequences for our nationso pray for his obedience to God to seek Him in all things for the good of God's people in America.

SEVEN SUGGESTIONS FOR PRAYER

As you intercede for the President, here are seven suggestions for prayer:

1. Ask God to hide him and his family from satanic attack and keep His hand upon him and his family. Pray the President knows all truth and the truth he acts on will set this nation free from harm.

2. Ask God to fill him with the wisdom and revelation it takes to lead this ONE NATION UNDER GOD.
(Ephesians 1:16-23 - Mark 4:22 and John 8:32)

3. Pray that the President will raise the standard of morality in our nation such that people will want to emulate it.

4. Pray that he will endeavor to restore the sanctity of life, of families, and of divine order (Ephesians 5:22 - 6:4).

5. Ask God to give him strategic insight and godly wisdom in foreign affairs, specifically in regard to Israel and the conflicts surrounding Israel.

6. Pray that the President will be a God-fearing man and recognize his accountability to the Lord for every decision and action he takes (Proverbs 9:10).

7. Pray that he will have courage to resist manipulation, pressure, and fear of those surrounding him in government. (Proverbs 29:25; 2 Timothy 1:7).

Thank you for your time. God bless you for your much praying & worshipping God for answering these prayers we BELIEVE WE RECEIVE FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.

SOUL-WINNING SCRIPT

MEMO: Because Joan Ann feels soul winning is so important, the latest "heads-up" for prayer follows this soul-winning script.

***********************************

Beloved, as promised, here is the "SOUL-WINNING SCRIPT" FOR YOU TO USE AND SEE HOW ANOINTED IT IS - FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. I know that some religious folks would say, "You cannot read this to anyone - you have to be led of the Spirit and do what you are led to say, etc."

LET ME SAY TO YOU UNBELIEVERS THAT FEEL THEY CANNOT NOT READ THE SCRIPT AND LET THE PERSON TO WHOM THEY READ IT READ IT WITH THEM, THAT EACH TIME I HAVE READ IT TO SOMEONE AND POINTED TO THE WORDS FOR THEM TO READ, THEY HAVE RECEIVED JESUS AS SAVIOR. WHY? THE WORD OF GOD IS THE POWER OF GOD. LIVES CHANGE WHEN THEY "HEAR" AND "READ" GOD'S WORD.

Love and Blessings,

Joan Ann

*******************

SOUL-WINNING SCRIPT

Has anyone ever told you that God loves you and that He has a wonderful plan for your life? I have a real quick, but important question to ask you. If you were to die this very second, do you know for sure, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you would go to Heaven? [If "Yes" - Great, why would you say "Yes"? (If they respond with anything but "I have Jesus in my heart" or something similar to that, PROCEED WITH SCRIPT) or "I hope so" PROCEED WITH SCRIPT.]

Let me quickly share with you what the Holy Bible reads. It reads, "for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" and "for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord". The Bible also reads, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved". And you're a "whosoever" right? Of course you are; all of us are.

I'm going to say a quick prayer for you. Lord, bless (FILL IN NAME) and his/her family with long and healthy lives. Jesus, make Yourself real to him/her and do a quick work in his/her heart. If (FILL IN NAME) has not received Jesus Christ as his/her Lord and Savior, I pray he/she will do so now.

(FILL IN NAME), if you would like to receive the gift that God has for you today, say this after me with your heart and lips out loud. Dear Lord Jesus, come into my heart. Forgive me of my sin. Wash me and cleanse me. Set me free. Jesus, thank You that You died for me. I believe that You are risen from the dead and that You're coming back again for me. Fill me with the Holy Spirit. Give me a passion for the lost, a hunger for the things of God and a holy boldness to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm saved; I'm born again, I'm forgiven and I'm on my way to Heaven because I have Jesus in my heart.

As a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I tell you today that all of your sins are forgiven. Always remember to run to God and not from God because He loves you and has a great plan for your life.

[Invite them to your church and get follow up info: name, address, & phone number.]

I would love to hear from you if you have prayed the prayer above so that I can remember you in my prayers. Just send me an e-mail at JAWMINISTRIES@comcast.net

Billy Graham prayed for America!

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen!'

Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, 'The Rest of the Story,' and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired. With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called 'One nation under God.'

If possible, please pass this prayer on to your friends. 'If you don't stand for something, you will fall for everything.'

Think about this: If you forward this prayer to everyone on your e-mail list, in less than 30 days it would be heard by the world. One Nation Under God.
Let us BELIEVE WE RECEIVE THIS FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS!
Love & Blessings,

Joan Ann

END-TIME PROPHECY IS A "HEADS UP" FOR INTERCESSORS TO PRAY FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS!

Beloved, The below prophecy given to a pastor in India is much like so many words we have been given by prophets (old & new) here in this nation.

We who are called to warn the beloved and seek them wherever they are to pray and stand in the gap, to help ease the awfulness of these end time disasters, are doing exactly that - for such a time as this.

Love & Blessings,

Joan Ann

*****************

PROPHECY UPDATE - As given to Pastor Davare

23 –1 – 2005 Sunday, Morning Service

In the Shiloh Tabernacle Assembly

Pune – 1, M.S. – India

International warnings.The Spirit of the Lord is showing me that two nations are secretly preparing for war – The first nation, that is China is getting its ground army ready. They are being secretly trained and (a route by which they will be able to traverse the earth, esp. the Europe/Asia side,. this route is being prepared to facilitate their movement across the Globe) Majority of the army are from China and the rest will join them from various land routes from various nations. They will join the highway and finally go against Jerusalem in the last of last days. But the move, the Lord showed me, or rather the preparation for this battle has already started in China.

The other fleet is being prepared by Russia as a mighty Aerial and Naval fleet. For this, new war techniques are being invented and tested and cheap education is being provided to all on an international level, in order to pull in many young from all over the world, with the future movement in mind.

FIRES – These fires, both big and small, will be on the rise all over the world and much destruction will take place, however, God will protect His own as He did in the valley of Goshem in the Olden Days. But, the judgment from God in the last days will take place, by fire and we will have a taste of it in the last days and I have the warning that the last days are here, but before it strikes with vengence during the tribulation days, but the Lord will take us up in the rapture away from the wrath to come. Pray especially against idolatry, witch-craft, sorcery, false forms of worship, Satan-worship, following of false Gurus, immorality – esp. homosexuality and lesbianism and sexual perversions ( the prime sins of the end-times).Read on…

MANY MAJOR EARTHQUAKES – will increasingly strike in many parts of the world. People thought that destruction would be only on the sea – shores by Tsunami and its after – effects, but even the earth is rebelling against the sin of the World and there will be earthquakes and mud-spitting volcanoes in the interior areas too.. Utter devastation!

In India the Northern region as already been warned, is in danger of earthquakes. Pray for Nepal and the Himalayan range especially. Pray that the quiet rivers of the North do not rise up and destroy. The destruction which has already started in the South will increase. In the East gross darkness and a wave of cruelty would cover the area and they too would have to face the judgment hand of God if we do not intervene in prayer and stand in the gap for them. In the West there would be an increase in wickedness and many natural disasters will strike. But, from the centre of India a cloud as big as a man's hand will arise and revival will start !– The center of India Could be Pune! That's where we are! Hallelujah! Pray for it folks.

Oh People of the Living God, wake up, we cannot be spectators anymore – we have a responsibility, along with lots to pray for. So. Pray, intercede, weep overtime, who knows the Lord may turn from his anger and spare the lives of many and give them a chance to be saved.

THESE ARE WARNINGS BUT THERE IS A PROPHECY OF BLESSINGS FOR YOU THIS YEAR TOO. LISTEN AND BE BLESSED!

SPIRITUALLY - Moses and Elijah's ministry has already started in this world. Many will see them. I see them often and the SPIRIT OF ELIJAH – ie. THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY has already descended now. Many prophets will arise and stand in front of big national leaders and they will quake with the fear of the Lord.

There will be transmigration of saints - praying people who will be carried by the Spirit into various places to minister God's Word to needy people.

There will be an increase of Angelic Visitations and angels will be sent to minister/or to help many.

Tribulations too will increase but God will protect His own as He did in the Valley of Goshem.

Where is the Lord God of Elijah The God who visits by FIRE? Revival Fires will spread all over and increase more and more. Along with the Fire of the Holy Spirit, signs, miracles and wonders will increase.

New manifestations of Glory will take place. Gold dust, fire, jewels, manna will be seen. Wind will be heard and felt. Now you will experience new manifestations. My wife has felt rain droplets fall on her body indoors where there is no trace of rain or water. Wait for more as the Glory increases.

More and more Worshippers will arise all over the world and the anointing will bring down the Glory of God , This is the Promise of God for the year 2005. Step into the river of God and start swimming!

UNITY AND ONENESS OF SPIRIT

"And all that believed were together and had all things common...and they, continuing daily with one accord..." (Acts 2:44, 46) The evidence of a move of God is unity and oneness of spirit. The early Church had all things in common, and they continued daily in one accord.

Pray for unity in the Body of Christ Church as never before. Pray for Glory Brides Global to have favor to get all churches, ministries, groups and individuals united in prayer for revival. Thank you. Joan Ann

REVIVAL HARVEST

While it is true that we need revival in the world, I would ask you, while you're praying with Glory Brides Global for revival in America and Israel, to be praying even more for the Lord of the harvest to raise up and thrust forth laborers fearlessly and faithfully to preach the truth of the gospel - Eternal Punishment. Daily, right now, there are millions of God's created men, women and children headed into the fires of hell, where scriptures speak of the "lake of fire" (Revelation 20:14), "wailing and gnashing of teeth" (Matthew 13:42), and "where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched" (Mark 9:44).

If we really believed in hell, we would plead with every man, woman and child to see their sinful lives, repent, and be saved. My whole purpose for praying in revival is so that souls will come to repentance, and will turn to and live for God till they go on to eternal life.

Pray for His Martyrs

"For we do not want you to be unaware, brethren, of our affliction which came to us in Asia, that we were burdened excessively, beyond our strength, so that we despaired even of life; indeed, we had the sentence of death within ourselves in order that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead; who delivered us from so great a peril of death, and will deliver us, He on whom we have set our hope. And He will yet deliver us, you also joining in helping us through your prayers, that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the favor bestowed upon us through the prayers of many."

---Paul the Apostle
Martyred in Rome, 65 A.D.
2 Corinthians 1:8-11 (NASB)

PRAYING IN AGREEMENT FOR ISRAEL AND AMERICA

Dear Intercessors: Please join with all those praying in agreement for Israel and America the following prayers submitted by Kathleen Mitchell, HaTzor@juno.com! As His Glory Brides Watchmen on the Wall, we need to be in LOVE AND UNITY with our much praying as never before "as united we stand and divided we fall." Thank you.

Love and Blessings, Joan Ann

--Pray that all the Jews will be given the revelation that the God of Israel is their only hope...that they cry out for Him to undertake and rescue them.

--Pray that the day of full battle will be held back until the Father gives His nod for its release.

--Pray that the duration will be short, and that the innocent will be protected.

--Pray divine wisdom on the military and governmental leaders of Israel, as they consider their course of action.

--Pray unity in the country between the various factions of Jews (religiously or politically aligned).

--Pray that the Israeli Arabs not be seduced into any deception, causing them to come against their Jewish friends and neighbors.

--Pray that truth be evident...that any traps, snares or deceptions be exposed.

--Pray that Israel be not caught sleeping at any point of attack.

--Pray for true Spirit-filled prophetic voices to be raised up in the Land, and that they be not only heard, but followed.

--Pray that enemy missiles and rockets, mortars and bullets miss their intended targets, and be unable to inflict injury and death. Let this reality be seen by the Jews, and a praise worthy sign from their God.

--Pray that the armor on the Israeli tanks and vehicles, supernaturally hold against attack.

--Pray that the Lord will direct the attack upon the enemies, so that the strikes will be on target and accomplish the work, with minimal casualties.

--Pray that the unholy spirits driving the hatred and violence be bound and disabled.

--Pray that all chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, intended for Israeli targets, be neutralized, and rendered ineffective.

--Declare that the outcome of the battles to come, as well as the battles themselves, be under the sovereign will of Almighty God. Forbid that Satan be able to "push the envelope" for his advantage.

--Pray that G. W. Bush and the USA military, and governmental leaders stand fast with Israel. Pray that their course of engagement with the terrorist nations, be EXACTLY as the Lord commands. Pray against pride and impulsiveness.

--Pray that the god of Islam be utterly humiliated, releasing thousands of precious Arabs from this demonic religion, and into relationship with the one true God.

--Cry out for the mercy of God upon the sins of Israel and of the USA. Without His mercy and forgiveness, we will not be battle ready. Pray for the spirit of conviction and repentance to be poured out.

--Pray for a release of the revelation of the Messiah, so that the harvest can accompany the battle victory.

--Pray for an end to the persecution of the Messianic believers in the Land. Pray that the spirit of the Anti-Messiah, Pride, Religion and Control be driven out of the Department of the Interior, and from the Dept. of Religious Affairs. Pray in the revelation of the true word of God, into the hearts of religious leaders. There has been a famine of hearing the word of the Lord, in that the whole word has not been heard in the Land. Pray that the famine end...that the New Testament be revealed and accepted as His valid word as well.

--Pray for the heart of David be released within the Body of the Messiah. Let the devoted, passionate, worshippers come forth...let those of faith, with the slingshot and smooth stones take their positions...let those who slay the lion and the bear raise up in faith and power. Pray that the "David," appointed by the Lord, to face off with the religious Goliath be brought to courage and faith, so that the believers in the Land can have free access to all the people with the truth of Messiah.

--Pray that doors of influence that have been closed to believers be opened in these days. Open up the halls of the Knesset, the synagogues, the leadership offices everywhere.

--Pray for supernatural unity and love...fearlessness and holy submission be poured out upon all believers in the Land...whether Jewish or non-Jew.

--Pray for the boldness, protection, and strength of the believers in the Land. May their inner beings be filled with the fire of the Holy One. May the light of the Holy One on their faces make it impossible for them to hide, nor be resisted.

--Pray that the roar of the Lion of Judah be brought forth and heard throughout the Land.

--Declare the end of Satan's plan to hold back the harvest. Declare that the revelation of the Messiah will come in these days. Declare the word of the Lord, that Israel has been established by the Lord, and that He will not allow them to be plucked up and destroyed.

--Pray for the revelation of the role and place of Israel in the world, and in the plan of the Lord. Pray that the Gentile Christian Body rally to support God's plan and word concerning Israel. Pray that the church will come to a place of repentance for the replacement theology and anti-Semitism, that has long been part of her history and current day operation.

--Pray that as these conflicts be sorted out in Israel, that the Jews will finally be repentant, humble, and submitted to the God of their fathers...the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

According to the perfect will of the Lord, pray that all these things be accomplished for His glory, and to declare before all people that He is, in fact, Lord.
Kathleen

BELOVED, ABOVE ALL - LOVE

1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-8 "LOVE ENDURES LONG AND IS PATIENT AND KIND; LOVE NEVER IS ENVIOUS NOR BOILS OVER WITH JEALOUSY, IS NOT BOASTFUL OR VAINGLORIOUS, DOES NOT DISPLAY ITSELF HAUGHTILY. IT IS NOT CONCEITED (ARROGANT AND INFLATED WITH PRIDE); IT IS NOT RUDE (UNMANNERLY) AND DOES NOT ACT UNBECOMINGLY. LOVE (GOD'S LOVE IN US) DOES NOT INSIST ON ITS OWN RIGHTS OR ITS OWN WAY FOR IT IS NOT SELF SEEKING; IT IS NOT TOUCHY OR FRETFUL OR RESENTFUL; IT TAKES NO ACCOUNT OF THE EVIL DONE TO IT (IT PAYS NO ATTENTION TO A SUFFERED WRONG). IT DOES NOT REJOICE AT INJUSTICE AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, BUT REJOICES WHEN RIGHT AND TRUTH PREVAIL. LOVE BEARS UP UNDER ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT COMES, IS EVER READY TO BELIEVE THE BEST OF EVERY PERSON. ITS HOPES ARE FADELESS UNDER ALL CIRCUMSTANCES AND IT ENDURES EVERYTHING (WITHOUT WEAKENING). LOVE NEVER FAILS (NEVER FADES OUT OR BECOMES OBSOLETE OR COMES TO AN END)." AMPLIFIED BIBLE

Beloved,

This year of 2005 must be the kickoff year in ALL our hearts to love one another as we love ourselves -- till Jesus returns, and then for Eternity. Love endures all and never fails.

Lots of Love,
Joan Ann

The prayer we need to pray for one another is in Psalm 28 where it says, "To you I will cry, O Lord, my Rock: HEAR the voice of my supplications, when I cry to You, when I lift up my hands toward Your Holy sanctuary.... The Lord is my strength and my shield; With my song I will praise Him. The Lord is their strength, and He is the saving refuge of His anointed."

PRAYER FOR WEATHER

INTERCESSORS, LET US BE WATCHFUL

Intercessors, heads up in your hearing God for prayer and praise for Israel and America. It is time like none other before to hear God clearly for what we are to pray. God speaks to each of us in ways to cover the earth in prayer and praise. Please do not neglect your part in the picture for victory to come in the ways of God's WILL (not ours) BEING DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. Thank you for your faithfulness. God knoweth and he worketh.

Love and Blessings,
Joan Ann

DEARLY BELOVED,

When Joab was sent out by King David to fight the Ammonites, Joab said, (1 Chronicles 19:13) "Be strong and let us fight bravely for our people and the cities of our God. The Lord will do what is good in his sight." Then when the battle was rough on Joab and his brother Abishai (1 Chronicles 19:17) and David was told of this, the king "gathered all Israel and crossed the Jordan; he advanced against them and formed his battle lines opposite them...." Scripture goes on to tell how David killed seven thousand of the enemy's charioteers and forty thousand of their foot soldiers, as well as the commander of their army.

I'm writing to ask you to join in prayer for our families, churches and cities till we push out the enemy and have revival in our areas. I ask each group, ministry, church, and individual please to come join together with all the Glory Brides of Jesus Christ to pray in unity as one with no division among us in all of our cities in this nation of America, in Israel, in Ireland, and in all the nations till we see a glorious victory of prayer that will mightily move the hand of God to save and bring revival to each family, each church, and each city in each of these nations.

Each of us, if we are totally honest with ourselves, will agree that prayer in unity is needed, if we are going to see a revival in America, Israel, Ireland, and all the nations.

You may say, "Oh, we're praying." Yes, but you are not joined together as one in unity with this entire nation in unity of prayer. That is what this communication to you today is all about. It's to relate us in unity with all the brethren as we pray for revival. "How can this happen when we're living in different states, cities and counties?" This may be your question to me. Possibly you're wondering how you could even pray in unity with just the people in your own town or city.

We all are the Lord Jesus Christ's Bride. Revelation 22:17: "And the Spirit and the bride say, 'Come!..." In this hour, as always in the history of His Church, His Bride must be a warrior fighting for the faith to be known in every part of the world. It is the same Glory Brides of Jesus Christ who must rise up now to fight in unity of prayer to bring in the revival in America, Israel, Ireland, and all the nations. We "have come to the kingdom for such a time as this" (Esther 4:14).

Let us seize the precious commodity of unity, no matter what color or race we are or what position in life we may hold. Let us begin today to pray in unity for revival in America, Israel, Ireland, and all the nations till there are signs of revival in every state, county and city of the great nation of America, the great nation of Israel, the great nation of Ireland, and all the nations.

My prayer is that each person will commit to pray at least 20 minutes a day three days a week, to give one hour of prayer in unity with all those praying in unity with them at the time they commit to pray.

A group of individuals may choose to form a Glory Brides Global Missions for Revival in America, Israel, Ireland, and all the Nations Intercession/Worship Cell Group and commit to pray one hour a week or more in unity with other GBG Intercession/Worship Groups that are praying in unity with their GBG group at the time they commit to pray.

These who commit to pray with GBG for Revival in America, Israel, Ireland, and all the nations are all praying in unity with all those praying already for America, Israel, Ireland, and all the nations. All I need is the time they will be praying and the number of all who will be praying to add to the chart of hours of prayer in unity.

The way we begin to pray in unity for revival in America, Israel, Ireland, and all the nations is to pray first for revival in your own heart and for your family, then for your church and city. Unless we follow this method of praying for revival in us, our families and our churches and cities first, we cannot go to the nation and nations, because revival begins with us.

PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR CHILDREN AND THE ADULTS WHOM SATAN HAS DECEIVED AND IS ON THE WAY TO TAKE TO HELL. THANK YOU. BLESSINGS, JOAN ANN

And here is dear Ashley, a 9-year-old, the typical average age reader of Harry Potter: "I used to believe in what they taught us at Sunday School," said Ashley, conjuring up an ancient spell to summon Cerebus, the three-headed hound of hell. "But the Harry Potter books showed me that magic is real, something I can learn and use right now, and that the Bible is nothing but Boring lies."

DOES THIS GET YOUR ATTENTION? If not, how about a quote from High priest of Satanism: "Harry is an absolute godsend to our cause," said High Priest Egan of the First Church of Satan in Salem, MA. "An organization like ours thrives on new blood no pun intended and we've had more applicants than we can handle lately. And, of course, practically all of them are virgins, which is gravy." (Since 1995, open applicants to Satan worship has increased from around 100,000 to now...20 MILLION children and young adults!) It makes me physically ill, people! But I think I can offer you an explanation of why this is happening.

Children have been bombarded with action, adventure, thrills and scares to the point Hollywood can produce nothing new to give them the next 'high.' Parents have neglected to see what their children are reading and doing, and simply seem satisfied that 'Little Johnny is interested in reading.' AND educators and the NEA are PUSHING this with NO WARNING as to the effects or the contents.

Still not convinced? I will leave you with something to let you make up your own mind. And finally, a quote from the author herself, J.K. Rowling, describing the objections of Christian reviewers to her writings. "I think it's absolute rubbish to protest children's books on the grounds that they are luring children to Satan," Rowling told a London Times reporter in a July 17 interview. "People should be praising them for that! These books guide children to an understanding that the weak, idiotic Son Of God is a living hoax who will be humiliated when the rain of fire comes...while we, his faithful servants, laugh and cavort in victory."

My hope is that you will see fit to become involved in getting the word out about this garbage. Please FWD to every pastor, teacher, and parent you know. This author has now published FOUR BOOKS in less than 2 years of this 'encyclopedia of Satanism' and is surely going to write more. I also ask all Christians to please pray for this lost woman's soul.

Pray also for the Holy Spirit to work in the young minds of those who are reading this garbage that they may be delivered from its harm. Lastly, pray for all parents to grow closer to their children, and that a bond of sharing thoughts and spiritual intimacy will grow between them.

IF YOU WANT REVIVAL

THE KEY TO REVIVAL DOORS OPENING IN AMERICA, ISRAEL, IRELAND, AND ALL THE NATIONS IS:

THE CHURCH'S REPENTANCE, THE KIND OF REPENTANCE THAT COMES AND FILLS THE HEARTS OF GOD'S CHURCH TILL THE BRETHREN RUN TO THE ALTARS AND WEEP FOR THE SIN IN THEIR LIVES AND THE LIVES OF OTHERS AND LIVE HOLY LIVES, TILL THE CHURCH LIVES ALONE TO WORSHIP GOD AND TO FULFILL HIS CALL ON THEIR LIVES.

READ JEREMIAH 29. REMEMBER, TO HAVE REVIVAL IN OUR CITIES WHERE GOD WOULD HAVE US GO TO REACH THE UNSAVED, WE MUST FIRST LOVE OUR CITY, THEN DO THE FOLLOWING SIX THINGS:

1. THE CHURCH MUST BE IN UNITY
2. THE CHURCH MUST TOUCH THE POLITICAL IN THE CITY
3. THE CHURCH MUST TOUCH THE EDUCATION IN THE SCHOOLS AND YOUTH IN THE CITY
4. THE CHURCH MUST TOUCH THE FINANCIAL IN THE CITY
5. THE CHURCH MUST TOUCH THE MEDIA IN THE CITY
6. THE CHURCH MUST TOUCH THE JUDICIAL SYSTEMS, THE JUVENILE SYSTEM, THE JAILS, THE POLICE, ETC.

WHEN THE CHURCH IS OUT THERE TOUCHING THE CITY THEY LOVE, THE CITY WILL HAVE REVIVAL, AND IT WILL SWEEP THE NATION.

12. Lord, we ask that Your children would not just be camping out in churches, but that they would be PUSHING THROUGH TO THAT INTIMATE PLACE WITH YOU TO LIVE IN YOUR GLORY RIGHT NOW HERE ON EARTH.

Note: Lord, all we have prayed for America we pray for our beloved ones in Israel also.

PLEASE PRAY FOR ARABS AND MOSLEMS AS WELL AS FOR THE ISRAELIS

Please, brethren, in all our praying and praising our God for Israel's revival of souls saved, let us be praying equally for His children, the Arabs and Moslems -- including Yasser Arafat, Chairman of the Palestinian Authority and Mohammad Khatami, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran -- for God loves them all.

Let us be wise in not praying for the destruction of any of these leaders of these nations or peoples. Why? Would it be that God will save them and use them to show the world how He is God by how He uses them for His Glory and millions get saved by this as they tell of how God's great Love won them to Himself and how they have come to Him for all of His great Love which they saw through His people of love so that they became convinced Jesus is the Son of God and that HE ALONE IS THE ONE TRUE GOD.

Beloved, our call of the Father is, above all, to LOVE. Love conquers all -- even those who are God's enemy today. In a day it can be all turned around by God to make enemies bow to the Name of our Lord, bringing Glory to Him by their testimonies.

We must be walking in wisdom and asking God how to be praying for such a time as this.

Blessings, Joan Ann

UNEXPECTED PRAYER

Thought you might enjoy this interesting prayer given in Kansas at an opening session of their Senate. It seems prayer still upsets some people. When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:

"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, "Woe to those who call evil good," but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We confess that. We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it Pluralism. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery, We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare, We have killed our unborn and called it choice, We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable, We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem, We have abused power and called it politics, We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition, We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression, We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent: to direct us to the center of Your will and to openly ask these things in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen!"

The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest. In 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Rev. Wright is pastor, logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls responding negatively. The church is now receiving international requests for copies of this prayer from India,Africa, and Korea. Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program," The Rest of the Story," and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired. With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called "one nation under God."

If possible, please pass this prayer on to your friends. "If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for everything." Also UNITED we stand and DIVIDED we fall.

Intercessors, keep up the praise and the prayer. All others are asked to join us Glory Brides Global intercessors in praise and prayer, for who knows if we have come to the KINGDOM for such a TIME as THIS.

PRAYER OF JABEZ

Please agree in prayer with us on this Word for Glory Brides Global territory to be ENLARGED till millions upon millions of hours of prayer in America and everywhere are going to His Throne Room for REVIVAL IN AMERICA AND ISRAEL:

I Chron. 4:9-10: 9 Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, "Because I bore him in pain." 10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, "Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!" So God granted him what he requested.

MORE PRAYER

More Word for you who join us praying for Revival in America and Israel:

Repentance and Holiness

When you read about other revivals in history, they all started by repentance and seeking Yahweh God’s face to change them. They made a covenant with Yahweh God to live a life of holiness, and they waited on Him to change them – while praying for revival. “Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart….He shall receive blessing from the Lord.”

Today, begin to look for and expect that “Golden Rain” of Revival in America and Israel. By faith see that cloud of it, the size of a man’s hand, as a servant of the Lord should be seeing by faith NOW. The cry is everywhere I go in America: “Oh, that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down…!” (Isaiah 64:1)


Revival is the Presence of God

Revival is the presence of God among HIS PEOPLE WHO CALL THEMSELVES BY HIS NAME. It is beyond our imagination or beyond anything we have ever known. Truly our souls will be overwhelmed when revival in America and Israel comes. I see it as an unthinkable Niagara Falls that will cause men to prostrate themselves before Yahweh God, crying, “Holy, Holy, Holy!” Men will be cleansed and holy beyond their expectations. Idols will disappear without a thought of them ever again.

Oh, how glorious it will be to be closer to our Holy and Reverently Fearful Yahweh God, Yeshua and Holy Spirit. At the same time, it will be fearful for many others. Yahweh God shows His greatness in revival. Yahweh God proves to every finite man that He is the only SOVEREIGN in his or her life.

When we see Him in America and Israel, we can be sure that His presence will melt out of us every hindrance of prejudice and unbelief we’ve ever had. Neither man nor demon will be able to stop the COMING GREAT REVIVAL that even now is beginning to be felt by many holy men, women and youths in America and Israel. They have fasted and prayed and heard Yahweh God, and they know His promises are always Yes and Amen. America and all nations will tremble at His presence. Anything of iniquity which satan tries to throw in the way will become as nothing, as in His presence even the waters will boil with the heat of Yahweh God’s Glory, and every adversary will tremble at His presence. (See Isaiah 64:2)

JABEZ PRAYER ANSWERED PRAYER

As posted in Joel News International-
From An Article By Mell Winger
In Pray! Magazine, Jan/Feb, 1999

JABEZ'S PRAYER

In 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 we read of Jabez, a man who enjoyed greater respect than his brothers: "Jabez was honourable above his brothers (was honoured more than his brothers): but his mother named him Jabez [sorrow maker], saying, 'Because I bore him in pain'.

Jabez cried to the God of Israel, saying, 'Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my border, and that your hand might be with me, and you would keep me from evil so it might not hurt me!' And God granted his request."

This is an exceptional prayer. Most probably, the reason why Jabez was more honoured than his brothers is to be found in this prayer. Jabez's prayer is a useful model for people who wish to pray meaningfully for an hour. If one spends approximately 8-9 minutes on each of the elements that may be discerned in this prayer, it would take up about an hour.

1. Call upon the Name of the Lord. (Jabez cried to the God of Israel)

Start by calling on the Name of the Lord. This is what Jabez did. In Gen. 4:26b we read: "At that time men began to call [upon God] by the name of the Lord." In dozens of places in the Bible we read about people "calling upon the Name of the Lord".

Practical application: Be still before the Lord Almighty and focus on Him only. Consider the different names of the Lord. (In the book Change your world through prayer by Bennie Mostert there is a list of more than 450 Names of God that you can use). Start to focus every day on 4-5 of these names (or as many as are meaningful to you). The Names of God reflect His character: they reveal what He wishes mankind to know about Him and what He wishes to do for us.

When we call upon the Name of the Lord, we should keep the following in mind:

Remember what his Names(s) represent.
Rejoice and delight in his Name.
Express your love for Him and your faith by using his Name and by calling upon it.
Believe in his Name.
Make your prayer requests in his Name.
Stand upon the authority of his Name.
Rebuke Satan in his Name.
Sanctify your prayers in his Name.
Obtain the support of the triune God by using his Name.
Use his Name as your shelter and your strength.

2. Lord, bless me.

Jabez's first prayer request was, "Oh, that you would bless me (grant me Godly favour)." He asks for unlimited blessing - that God would shower his blessings upon him; bless him abundantly. Jabez knew the secret of invoking God's blessing upon himself.

What does the word 'bless' mean? Within a religious context, a blessing refers to the favour of God; that God will grant prosperity; that God will help and protect. It implies God's goodwill; that man will receive only the best from God; that God will grant success and make him happy.

Whoever is blessed by God shall receive from Him all that is good and beautiful. Have you ever asked for God's blessing on your life, fully expecting that He will give it? If we do not have God's blessing, God's favour, we have nothing to give to others as it is only from the abundance that God gives us that we can again give to others.

Study the following Scriptures:

Numbers 6:24-27 - The Lord bless you and watch, guard and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace. And they shall put my name upon the Israelites, and I will bless them.

Ephesians 1:3 - May blessing be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ Who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm!

Genesis 12:3 - And I will bless those who bless you and curse him who curses or uses insolent language towards you; in you will all the families and kindred of the earth be blessed.

According to these passages from Scripture God wishes to bless us and because He blesses us we should be a blessing to others. According to Numbers 6:27 it was the duty of the priests to call the Name of the Lord upon the Israelites. In other words, it was their duty to bless them. As all believers are priests of God (1 Pet. 2:9-10) we are called to do the same to the people around us.

Practical application: Organise this part of your time of prayer as follows:

Ask God the Father to bless you. Pray about your personal needs, pray for your own crises.
Ask God to pour his abundance and favour upon you. Speak to God about the desires of your heart. God wants to bless you. Ask Him for both the small and the big things in life: He is your Father and it pleases Him to care for his children.
Ask God the Father to bless you and your family.
Ask God the Father to bless your church.
Ask God the Father to bless the nations. Pray for different countries and population groups by name.

3. Lord, enlarge my territory.

Jabez's second prayer request to the Almighty God was: Enlarge my border/territory/coast (increase/extend it).

So many Christians pray only for protection, safety, or just to stay alive. God the Father has called us as kings, priests and prophets to take the gospel of peace to the ends of the earth (Matt. 28:18-20). This is what Jesus taught his disciples in the Lord's Prayer when He prayed, Let Thy Kingdom come.

In Isaiah 54:2-3 the people of Israel are given the following command: Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes, for you will spread abroad to the right hand and to the left; and your offspring will possess the nations and make desolate cities to be inhabited.

Jabez asked the Lord to give him a larger territory. God wishes also to extend your territory, your area of spiritual responsibility. Imagine what would happen if every day you prayed earnestly, "Lord extend my territory. Give me greater spiritual responsibility in your Kingdom. Give me more people to lead to You, more people for whom I can pray, more work to do for You."

If you pray this from today on for the rest of your life, just imagine what God would be able to accomplish through you. God did this for Jabez and He wants to do it for each one of us. Are you ready to be more involved in the Kingdom, to do more for the Lord, to take on greater responsibility, to dream bigger dreams, and to ask God for a greater spiritual vision?

Practical application: Every time you pray, ask the Lord to extend your territory. Listen to what God wishes to say to you and make yourself available to God so that He can do more and greater things through you so that others may be blessed. Set aside this time in your hour of prayer to pray for the extension of the Kingdom. When you pray that God will extend your territory, also ask it for your family, your church and for the Church all over the world.

4. Lord, let your hand be with me.

Jabez's third request was: Let your hand be with me (that your power and presence will be in my life). In the language of the New Testament, Jabez asked, "Give me your spiritual power. Fill me with the Holy Spirit."

The moment that God blesses you and extends your territory, you will immediately begin to find yourself in situations where you will realize that the work and the responsibilities that God has given you surpass your human capabilities. Only then will you begin to realise that you cannot do the Lord's work in your own spiritual strength.

People cannot live spiritual lives in their own strength. It is at this point that we call out to God in desperation and beg Him to fill us with the Holy Spirit and give us his Godly strength.

In Acts 1:8 the Lord promised, But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth. Eph. 5:18 admonishes us to be,...ever be filled with the Holy Spirit.

In Eph. 3:16-21 the apostle Paul prays: May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the Spirit.

May Christ through your faith dwell in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love. That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth of it. That you may come to know the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge; that you may be filled unto all the fullness of God! Now to Him Who, by the power that is at work within us, is able to do super-abundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think, To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen.

Practical application: During this period of your time of prayer you can pray for the power of God in your life, that you may be filled with Holy Spirit, and that the Hand of God will be upon you. You can pray for God's presence in your life, that his supernatural power and presence will empower you and guide you to do his will.

Pray this for yourself, your family, your church, for other congregations and for the Church all over the world.

5. Lord, keep me from evil.

Jabez's fourth prayer was: Keep me from evil so it might not hurt me (so that I will not experience pain nor cause pain). This is exactly what Jesus taught his disciples in the Lord's Prayer: Let us not come into temptation, but deliver us from evil (Matt. 6:13).

In 2 Thess. 3:3 Paul says, Yet the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and set you on a firm foundation and guard you from the evil one. In James 4:7 James, the brother of Jesus, teaches: Be subject to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. The apostle Peter warns in 1 Peter 5:8: Be well balanced, be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring, seeking someone to seize upon and devour.

Practical application: During this period of your hour of prayer pray that God will not lead you into temptation; that no evil will befall you; that there will be no pain and anguish in your life. Pray that God will protect you from attacks and temptations by the evil one and that if the devil should attack you, the Lord God will give you the victory. Pray this prayer for yourself, your family, your church, and for believers all over the world.

6. Lord, help me not to cause any pain.

Literally, Jabez means the one who causes pain. The word may, however, be translated in two ways: meaning either "That I experience no anguish/pain" or "that I shall not cause pain." For the purposes of this hour of prayer, let us choose to give it the second meaning.

Practical application: Pray that you will not cause pain in the lives of others. Pray that the Lord will help you not to hurt others by your actions, words, deeds or what you neglect to do. Pray for spiritual insight and sensitivity with regard to the physical, practical and spiritual needs of others so that you may be a blessing to them.

Confess your sins and weaknesses and resolve to refrain from doing whatever the Lord lays upon your heart that may be to the detriment of others, cause pain in their lives or cause them not to receive or experience God's blessing. Pray for practical opportunities in your daily life to ease pain and to be a blessing to someone. Pray this prayer for yourself, your church and for other believers as God lays their names upon your hearts.

7. Praise and thanksgiving

At the end of Jabez's prayer we read: And God granted his request. Does the fact that God answers prayers not give reason for praise and thanksgiving? Matt. 7:7-8 reads: Ask and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you.

According to James 4:2-3: (We) do not have because (we) do not ask. Or (we) ask and fail to receive because (we) ask with wrong purpose and evil, selfish motives. (Our) intention is to spend it in sensual pleasures.

God answers prayer. Many people receive nothing from God because they do not pray. Those who pray, receive much from God.

Practical application: Use the last minutes of your hour of prayer to thank God for answers to prayer and to praise Him for his goodness. Close your hour of prayer on a triumphant and victorious note by thanking God. Praise and worship Him.

NOTE:
1. Jabez prayed - he didn't just complain, moan about everything, start to strike, organise a riot because things didn't work out for him. No, he started to call on the Name of the Lord.

2. He prayed with boldness. He literally cried to God, he cried to God like his great-great-grandfather Jacob in Gen. 32:24-28:

Gen. 32:26-28 - 26 Then the man said, "Let me go, for it is daybreak." But Jacob replied, "I will not let you go unless you bless me." 27 The man asked him, "What is your name?" "Jacob," (which means: Deceiver) he answered. 28 Then the man said, "Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome." By laying hold of God, Jacob became Israel (which means: Prince with God), because he overcame God and men in prayer, by calling on the Name of the Lord.

3. He prayed God-size prayers. He cried to God in a hopeless and desperate situation, and God did the humanly impossible. Pray God-size prayers - God can do the impossible.

4. He prayed till God answered, not just till he heard. So many people pray once or twice. O friends, let us call on the Name of the Lord till we have an answer.

Become an intercessor like Jabez

5. Begin every day by praying Jabez's prayer. Every day! To discipline yourself, tick the days that you prayed this prayer off on a calendar. Do not make it a ritual prayer. Pray this prayer earnestly every day, with a genuine expectation that God will hear your prayer.

6. Secondly, begin to put time aside and try, as far as possible, to spend an hour in prayer every day.

7. Start a prayer group and pray together at least once a week for an hour. As soon as the group grows to more than 7, divide and start a second group.

8. Use Jabez's prayer to pray for yourself, your family, your church, the country and the ends of the earth.

9. Start keeping a personal prayer journal of the changes that occur in your life, answers to prayer, spiritual breakthroughs and God's blessings in your life.

10. Read the book The Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson, founder and president of Walk Thru the Bible. The following two books are also highly recommended. The Hour That Changes the World by Dick Eastman and Could You Not Tarry One Hour by Larry Lea.
