PRAYER POINTS FOR THE 24x7 PRAYER CHAIN FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST & NIGERIA, Oct 9 - 15, 2022
THANKSGIVING: 63:7 “I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the LORD, and the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses” Give God thanks, praise and glory for all He has done for you, your family, the Church and Nigeria; for His marvelous attributes and attitude towards us: His lovingkindness, His great goodness towards the Church – the Israel of God in Nigeria.
REPENTANCE: Also, ask God for mercy and forgiveness for all of your sins, your family’s, the Church and Nigeria; pray for grace to turn and live in obedience; that our land may be healed (2 Chron. 7.14).
FOCUS: For God to arise for Nigeria and the Church in His sovereign will and way this new 63rd year
Isa 63:1 “Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in His apparel, travelling in the greatness of His strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save” Pray that the Lord who is “mighty to save” will visit the camps of Edom in Nigeria and even outside Nigeria in “the greatness of His strength”, visit His vengeance upon all stirring up evil and opposing progress
Isa 63:3-5 “I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with Me: for I will tread them in Mine anger, and trample them in My fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garments, and I will stain all My raiment. For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.” Pray that the Lord in His sovereign will and way, with no one else, will tread and trample the spiritual and physical camps of wickedness and unrighteousness in Nigeria. Let this 63rd year be the year of God’s redeemed and the day of His vengeance
Isa 63:6 “And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.” Plead the blood of Jesus Christ over all camps, agents and altar of the enemies of the gospel, of the Lord and of Nigeria’s peace and progress. Pray that as the Lord brought down Pharaoh and his powers in the Red Sea, the Lord will bring down the Pharaohs, Herods, Hamans, and Nebuchadnezzars of our nation and generation
Isa 63:8-10 “For he said, Surely they are My people, children that will not lie: so He was their Saviour. In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the angel of His presence saved them: in His love and in His pity He redeemed them; and He bare them, and carried them all the days of old. But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.” Thank the Lord that He is a true Father, when we are afflicted, He too is afflicted. Pray that God will help us NEVER to rebel against Him again or stray from the way of righteousness. Then pray that the “Angel of His presence” will save the Church in Nigeria and uplift the nation in a decisive manner – spiritually and materially
Isa 63:11b-14b “Where is He that put His Holy Spirit within him? That led them by the right hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make himself an everlasting name?...so didst thou lead thy people, to make thyself a glorious name.” Pray that God is His great mercy will work a work of deliverance, national emancipation and uplift the Church and the nation in a manner that will make an everlasting and glorious name for Himself.
