A Call to Prayer for the Middle East

by | Feb 2, 2011 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

cindyjacobsLike you,
I am greatly distressed about the situation in the Middle East. Below is a word
to the Christians in the Middle East and the worldwide church, along with a
prayer guide for Egypt and the Middle East.

There are
certain things that I have not written to all, but I believe that the Muslim
Brotherhood is behind much of this, or at least taking advantage of it. As you
may know, Mubarak just announced today that he will not seek re-election. We
must continue to pray for stability in Egypt, for a peaceful transition that
will not result in leadership by the Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia law.

Pray for
Jordan as well, that the people will stand with the king and that this unrest
across the Middle East will not result in an Islamic Caliphate being

Below are
also several articles along with a video link that will bring further insight
regarding the seriousness of what’s happening in Egypt and the goals of the
Muslim Brotherhood.

join us in fasting and prayer during this most critical time.


As you are
aware, this is one of the most critical and serious times for believers across
the Middle East in recent memory. As a prophet, I have been seeking the Lord
for a prophetic word concerning the situation in Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia,
Yemen, and other parts of the Arabic-speaking world as well as those greatly
influenced by Islamic teaching.

Also, in
looking back at the prophetic word for 2011 issued by the Apostolic Council of
Prophetic Elders, I read the warning we issued that said that Satan would try
and start another third world war. One of his purposes was to stop the new
missionary movements taking place across the face of the earth.

I believe
we are at that tipping point at this moment where the situation in Egypt could
de-stabilize the region to such a degree that just such a scenario would take
place. Of course, new regimes could be put in place that would cause
Iranian-type oppressions of believers.

This is
why I am calling for the Body of Christ around the world, and particularly the
Arabic-speaking community to participate in a season of prayer and fasting
beginning as soon as you receive this letter.

Many may
want to even have such a severe fast as an “Esther fast.” Others can
fast as their health allows. If you are able to do an n Esther fast, I am
suggesting for a three day time period.

Further, I
feel like I am hearing from the Lord that what Satan has meant for evil, God
will turn for good if the church across the Middle East will put aside their
doctrinal and denominational differences and come together in unity to pray.
The walls of division must fall if the Christian community is going to be

things seem quite dire, if the church will fast and pray together as one, the
turmoil will die down and God will protect the world from a terrible war.

On a
redemptive note, I see a generation of young leaders arising out of the church
who are anointed to preach the gospel and see a great harvest of souls all
across the Middle East, as well as North Africa, Central Asia, Malaysia, and
