Pray for Libya

by | Mar 4, 2011 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

chavdas2011The Watch of the Lord is a global prayer network begun in
1995 in response to the Lord asking us, “Watch with Me.”

In January 1995 we invited about 20 people to spend the following Friday from
10 p.m. until 6 a.m. on Saturday keeping the “night watch,” fasting
sleep for spiritual reasons. We gathered to wait on God in worship and prayer and share in communion through
Jesus’ body and blood in the Lord’s Supper.

Every Friday since, we have done
the same. We have celebrated the watch with as many as a thousand watchmen
present. And now there are watches throughout the United States and abroad. We
find ourselves in the midst of a renewed visitation that is manifesting the
glory of the Lord!

The sure promise of God through Scripture is this: “If you pray, I will
answer.” The delivering power of God that came to Israel was through the
blood and flesh of the slain Lamb! All Israel who looked for deliverance
through the Lamb that was slain watched all night after partaking of the
Passover meal.

In Luke 6:12 we find that it was Jesus’ habit to spend
all night
in prayer to God. It was out of this lifestyle that He asked His
slumbering disciples, “Could you not watch with Me even one hour?”
(Matt. 26:40, emphasis added).

Today we look to the same deliverer, Jesus Christ the Lamb that was slain
before the foundations of the world. We answer His call to watch and pray,
and we are seeing Him come to deliver.

The commission and call of every Christian is to be fully
awake as prophetic watchmen in this hour. Like Ezekiel of old who stood before
a valley of dry bones as God asked His watchman, “Can these bones
live?” he replied, “O Lord, only you know.” God revealed His
will to His watchman and then said, “Prophesy!”

This is our place as His watchmen—spiritual people who will
give voice to God’s will in our prayer, intercession and proclamation in this
hour.

Join us and take your place on the wall in keeping the Watch of the Lord for
deliverance and revival for the people and nations around the world.

Today our watch focus is Libya. Pray for Libya. After 30
years of despotic rule, the nation of Libya is in turmoil. The dictator,
Muammar al-Qadhafi, has had hundreds of innocents killed while trying to keep
his hold over the people. Pray for this nation. May God show mercy on the
people. May this madman’s despotic rule come to an end. May the Libyans choose
the path of liberty and religious freedom.

As many Arab nations go through turmoil, may the Spirit of God show mercy and
restore peace, and may His grace protect the innocents. Pray that God’s shield
over Israel remains strong.

“For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical
opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master
spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit
forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere” (Eph. 6:12, AMP). 

“Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where
the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to
preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to
proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who
are bound; To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that
He may be glorified” (Is. 61:1,3). 

 “Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth
set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and
against his Anointed, saying, ‘Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away
their cords from us.’ He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in
derision. Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his
fury, saying, ‘As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill.’ I will
tell of the decree: The Lord said to me, ‘You are my Son; today I have begotten
you. Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the
earth your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in
pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O
rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss
the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly
kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him” (Ps. 2:1-12).

“Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal,
flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street
of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its
twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree
were for the healing of the nations” (Rev. 22:1-2).
