Jesus Prays for All Believers
20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.25 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. 26 I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

What is the role of a prayer strategist for the spheres of influence

As strategists we are called to stand in the gap, research the spheres of influence in all nations with the support of local prophetic and apostolic leaders to destroy the strongholds of the enemy in the spheres of influence. We as prayer strategists, we work in partnership with others to engage in and catalyse prayers, train disciples which informs and flows from the team's vision and strategy through:
• Regularly drawing near to God in prayer, worship and adoration both individually and as a team
• Becoming aware of gaps and hindrances in reaching the vision God has entrusted to them;
• Researching, envisioning and refining strategies for overcoming those gaps;
• Maximizing strategic implementation of the team's strategies particularly related to prayer;
• Periodically refining those strategies with the team in times of prayer together.

1 Chronicles 12:32 speaks of the men of Issachar who understood the times and knew what needed to be done; these people might be representative of 'prayer strategists.' Nehemiah is another example. Nehemiah interceded about the broken down walls of Jerusalem and he gained favour with the king, permission and resources, mobilized teams to do the actual work, and oversaw the completion of the project. Prayer was the way he received a strategy and was integral to the project's success. In the New Testament, Barnabas was an encourager, connector and prophetic intercessor for in the spread of the Early Church. He brought Saul into relationship with the apostles and served alongside Paul in pioneering new work for the gospel. He was an another example of this same function in the Body of Christ.

Our principles are God’s principles on earth as it is in heaven

We are implementing these truths through many leaders who represent their spheres of influence/mountains/domains. The Sermon on the Mount (Matt.5-7) is understood to the manifesto of the Kingdom of God on earth. http://prayerstrategy.org/

At this time in history we live in the era of God's grace where good and evil can produce order or disorder according to our obedience or disobedience to God. In this reality two doctrines work in parallel: the free will of man and the sovereignty of God. While God calls all people to himself through his truth and kindness, not all will respond. God is not responsible for our sin and he will ultimately have the last say.

We will all be held accountable for the life we have been given (John 3:16-18). The time will certainly come when the Lord Jesus Christ will return to earth to rule and reign as King of kings and Lord of lords over the whole earth from the city of Jerusalem (Micah 4:1- 8).

Our faith in Christ the Son of the Living God, and this is where we stand. Our Mission is to pray and connect people who are passionate about participating in growing the governance of Christ in every sphere/mountain/domain of society and follow God’s command to love one another as He loved us
(John 13:34-35).

There are a few formative Kingdom of God principles that are critical to accomplishing the will and the ways of God on Earth as it is in Heaven:
1. There can be only one head, the Lord Jesus Christ.
2. There can be only one body of many different parts working together.
3. The authority of the head passes to the body and rests on the shoulders of the body to bring forth the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in Heaven (Matt 16:18).
4. The Body of Christ knows the will of the Head by Word and Spirit.
5. The Power of God is manifested in His power when we work in unity to achieve the above principles. His power is released through our faith to accomplish his will: "Later the disciples came to him privately and asked, “Why couldn’t we cast out the demon?” He told them, “It was because of your lack of faith. I promise you, if you have faith inside of you no bigger than the size of a small mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move away from here and go over there,’ and you will see it move! There is nothing you couldn’t do!" For our God is not only the God of individuals, he is also the God of nations (Rev 21:24).

God bless

Pray for specific concerns facing your city. “I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercessions and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives . . . This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:1-4)

  6. Pray that the Lord will find in your community a place of prayer wherever believers gather. (Acts 16:11-15)
  7. Pray for your city to show and tell the good news to the poor, the prisoners, the blind, and the oppressed. (Luke 4:18-19)

Though many of the political issues our nation faces can spark debate and disagreement, now is the time for God’s church to come together in unity and prayer for God to move in the coming days and weeks in such a way that He alone gets the glory.


We invite you to join us on November 5th at 8am ET for our next 1st Thursday Prayer gathering online as we pray for one another, for our elected officials, and for our nation as a whole. Register today at the link below!

LET LOVE RULE:
IT MIGHT BE TIME FOR A HEART CHECK

By Phil Miglioratti
Published in Prayer Connect magazine

Whenever a particular colleague would call me on the phone, I would immediately freeze up. Our ministry was suffering from his seemingly self-serving decision-making and destructive actions. When confronted, he refused to repent or resign.

 

Somehow I survived that situation. But when he called, more than a decade after he finally moved on, I hesitated to pick up the phone. 

 

But I'm glad I did.                           Read complete article...Comment >>>

 
 
Your Church
in 2020 ?

Maybe it is time for your association or congregation to to a laser-beam-focused review & revision on the way you think about prayer.
 
A conference? (open to the entire congregation/association)
A consultation? (pastor and core leadership)
A coaching session? (small group leaders; study class teachers)

So what I am asking... Is about the Church of Jesus Christ be united in prayer against the pandemic.  That just maybe as many local Churches as possible will take time to pray united against the pandemic.  It is an attack on the Church of Jesus Christ and believers...  Here is something I wrote and posting on my blog.         

A call to all believers

              A battle has been raging  

Here we are another day!  A day in which many things are happening just in my small area of life.  A day in which many things are happening in everyones small area of life.  

People going to work, people working from home.  People going to School, people do school remotely... People driving cars, people walking... People out and about, people at home.  Many things being done through out the day! 

But today there is still a cloud.  A cloud that is touching everyone.  Some with A violent storm, some with rain, some with a sunless sky and some with fog.  We have names for this cloud.  We call it a pandemic, we call it covid... it is real.  It is in all our same area of life! It doesn't matter who you are, it is affecting you.  

As believes in our Lord Jesus Christ this cloud is still real.  It is affecting the people of God!  It is an attack if you will.  An attack that yes we may recognize (some of us) but an attack that is still going on.  We need to fight this attack personally but more importantly together.  As the Church.  The Church of Jesus Christ.

We need to be united in this battle!  A battle that needs unity of it's soldiers.  A battle plan that the army of Jesus Christ is following.  We need to unite.  We need to unite as The Church of Jesus Christ in prayer.  We need to unite as local Churches of Jesus Christ in prayer.  Corporate prayer!  (yes, it is given that some Churches are doing) But what if this Sunday and next every local Church takes a time in prayer for this one attack;  the pandemic, covid...  That even maybe we would bend our knee.  That even maybe we would fast;  A Day, A morning.  

thanks,

Peter
