This Month's Promise

“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us,...”

- (Galatians 3:13)

Read: II Chron 7:14, Joshua 3:1-10


“Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved.” – (Romans 10:1)

Almolonga, Guatemala, a town with only 20,000 people was one of the worst in poverty, violence and spirit worship two decades ago. Crimes, and alcohol and drug abuse were rampant. A Pastor mobilized intercessors to fast and pray four times a week. Over a period of time, people began to get saved and their lives began to change. They also prayed against spirit worship. Gradually the negative influences began to be overcome.

Now, Almolonga is a transformed, model city. Pastors and other Christian leaders pray together and fast and so 80% of the people are practicing Christians. The jails are closed now due to lack of crime. Not only that, the agricultural lands which were barren once have now started yielding amazing harvest. (Source: News for Praise and Prayer – Volume 16). When the people of Nineveh heard the words of caution from Jonah about the destruction that awaited their country, they humbled themselves before the Lord, fasted and prayed wholeheartedly. When the Lord saw this He had compassion on them and did not destroy them.

Dear friends, as we live in the last days, our country is filled with wickedness, poverty and violence. The love of people have become very cold. The Lord wants His own people to come to Him and pray for their countries. II Chronicles 7:14 says “If my people, who are called by name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” So, as patriotic citizens, let many of us become sincere intercessors, let us fast and pray for the salvation of our people. The Lord will surely answer our prayers. Our country’s fellowmen will escape the wrath of the Lord.

PRAYER: Dear Lord, I trust that You will surely hear my prayers when I join with my fellow-believers and intercede for my country, And that you will show mercy and favor to my brethren and save them. Thank You. In Jesus’’ name I pray. Amen.
