This Is the Shaking Before the Awakening

by | Aug 10, 2021 | Blogs, The Plumb Line

With violence and plagues raging in the nations, I sense God’s desire to bring breakthrough in our cities, even mass salvations as those who don’t know the Lord grapple with deeper issues of life.

Before every great awakening, there is a great shaking. Everything that can be shaken seems to be shaking in this prolonged season of death, violence and destruction.

But here’s the good news: God is still on the throne, and He is the God of the breakthrough. He never changes, and He can break in with light in even the darkest situations.

Micah 2:13 tells us, “The one who breaks open will come up before them; They will break out, pass through the gate, and go out by it; Their king will pass before them, With the Lord at their head.” Jesus goes before us to make a way for our breakthrough.

The Amplified translation of Micah 2:13 makes this more explicit: “The breaker [the Messiah, who opens the way] shall go up before them [liberating them]. They will break out, pass through the gate and go out; So their King goes on before them, the Lord at their head.”

Awakening Prayer Hubs‘ theme this month is breakthrough! We’re believing for breakthrough in cities, breakthrough in nations and breakthrough in the seven mountains of society. Despite a raging pandemic, God is still the Lord of the breakthrough.

We’ve called the Awakening Fast, a 21-day fast for awakening in the nations, starting Sept. 1. There’s never been a better time to fast and pray.

Here are our prayer points:

— Pray the Lord would anoint the remnant with boldness, so God would use their mouths to make His decrees of breakthrough into the mountains of society (Jer. 1: 9-10). This is in alignment with the decade of the mouth.

— Pray for the fearless Davids to arise who will call on the God of the breakthrough (Baal-Perazim) for instruction, so the Philistines of our day who are seated in the seven mountains of society will be defeated (2 Sam. 5:20). God is looking for a man through whom He can show Himself strong.

— Pray for God to raise up sons and daughters to be strong and courageous to release the name of the Lord of the breakthrough over their cities, governments and schools (Joshua 1:6-9).

— Pray the Lord of the breakthrough would use His people to be a standard of righteousness in schools, and pray the education systems would experience a radical exchange from darkness into light. Pray the Word of the Lord would once again be taught in the education systems.

— Pray for the Lord of the breakthrough to flood homes of families. Pray the Lord touches the hearts of the priests in families, so the foundations of the families can once again be restored and children can feel safe and secure in their identity (Joshua 24:15).

— Pray for breakthrough in the church; pray that people will awaken from their slumber (Isa. 60:1-2).

— Pray for breakthrough in governments of the earth. Pray that righteous leaders, those who fear the Lord, will reign in the governmental mountain (Prov. 14:34, 21:15).

— Pray for breakthrough in our thought processes and belief systems. Pray we will see through the lies we believe, believe the Lord and receive the truth that sets us free (2 Cor. 10:5).

— Pray that Christ would shatter the defenses of the people in our cities and nations, so their eyes open to understand Christ’s love and surrender to His will (Eph. 3:19).

— Pray for the lost to see a breakthrough in the battle for their souls, and pray they would receive the knowledge of the truth, healing and deliverance by the blood of the Lamb of God (Isa. 61:1).

— Pray unbelievers in our cities cross over and out of bondage and into God’s will for a life of freedom (Gal. 5:1).

— Pray the obstacle the enemy has placed in front of unbelievers will at once be demolished and breakthrough will blossom as they move across the enemy line to a place of victory in Jesus (Eph. 5:14).

— Pray unbelievers will have a breakthrough discovery experience, a revelation, an awakening of who Jesus is and that there is a new life path offered, a life filled with love and acceptance, deliverance, healing and the joy of the Lord—a life that is so fulfilling and miraculous that they desire to shout from the rooftops that Jesus is Lord (1 John 4:8).
