We are living in unprecedented times. There are storms on every side: Hurricanes; floods; fires; wars; and the
COVID pandemic. Lives are being threatened and lost daily.
As believers, how do we process all of this? What can we do about people being killed, losing their homes, or
suffering the loss of loved ones or things precious to them?
Immediately, as I began to pray, a memory of nine eleven came to me. Months prior to the event, a good friend
came to me. She had been experiencing repetitive dreams of airplanes crashing into two tall glass buildings and
people jumping out of the windows to their death.
She had absolutely no idea of the location – just the impending disaster. As I listened, I told her to fervently pray in the spirit daily until the Lord gave her more revelation or release. As she watched the event that day, she sat silently and sobbed, “Is there anything else I could have done?”
As it turned out, hundreds of intercessors across the country had experienced the same dream. The fervent
prayers of these warriors saved the lives of hundreds. Story after story surfaced of people who were not present
in the building (their workplace) at that moment – for a myriad of different reasons, and of others who were there
but miraculously survived.
I share this with you to remind you of your most powerful weapon – prayer. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man is effective. (James 5:16 )
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.(Mark
Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20)
Right now, there are believers choosing to remain in Afghanistan to share the good news with those who are not
yet saved. There are military, medical workers, and first responders risking their lives daily to save others. They
need us to move mountains for them!
We moved a mountain and Lubbock became a sanctuary city. We moved a mountain and the heartbeat law went
into effect in Texas.
God’s arm is not too short, and He will work these things together for good for those who believe. We don’t know
what that looks like, but more than ever we must look to Him with unwavering trust.
He says: If my people who are called by my name (Christians) will humble themselves and pray and seek my face
and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins and heal their land.(2 Chronicles
7:14) Please, my friends, heed His call!
O Lord God Almighty, we humbly come before you in prayer. We look to you in this time of terror. We repent of
our self-serving and ungodly ways and ask forgiveness for all our sins – individually and as a nation. Help us to turn from our wicked ways and reflect your love to our neighbors. Then, O Lord, please heal our land.
