A British Newspaper recently published a remarkable story of an Interview with a Terrorist who was complaining about the failure of Hamas to do huge damage inside Israel, despite firing hundreds and hundreds of rockets and missiles at the Jewish people. He had a unique explanation: ?Their God changes the path of our rockets in mid-air.?
Brethren, our PRAYERS to God of Israel matter a lot! Israel is not just defended by the courageous men and women of the Israel Defence Force (IDF) and the Iron Dome Missile Defence System. Israel is defended by the Unseen hands of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. That same God is the God of Nigeria.
He is our Judge, our Lawgiver, our King and He is the one keeping Nigeria
(ISA. 33:22). We should therefore never hold our peace day or night, nor keep silent. We will give Him no rest till He establishes and till He makes Nigeria a praise in the earth. (ISA. 62:6-7).
Recently I had a dream in a Retreat in Lagos that has again boosted my confidence in this God of Israel. For want of space, let me share only the Scripture God gave to explain the dream.
2 KINGS 3: 16-17
16 And he said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Make this valley full of ditches.’
17 For thus says the Lord: ‘You shall not see wind, nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, so that you, your cattle, and your animals may drink. NKJV
God is saying ? if you can raise me Prayer Altars all over this troubled Nation, then get ready for an uncommon, sudden and supernatural intervention from My presence. This to me is very exciting.
It is, therefore my pleasure to send out the Prayer Guide for the Month of August.
Please don?t let this Prayer Guide limit your liberty in observing these Prayers. Feel free to use the first 30minutes to generously worship and enjoy God?s presence before latching on to the prescribed prayers for the day.
As usual, I encourage you to make copies and circulate widely in churches and fellowship groups.
Finally, may I encourage you to plan to participate in the forthcoming National Prayer Conference of the INTERCESSORS FOR NIGERIA slated for the 3rd- 6th of September in Abuja. Check out other details in APPENDIX I. God?s hand of help will never depart from you.
