"Lord, forgive us, for the church has conformed to the world. God’s people view pornography, listen to the same music as the world, and act like the world. You are a holy God and You are seeking a holy people. We repent and ask that You would forgive us and send us a revival! O God, make us a holy people for Your glory!” 

This prayer was prayed recently in an America Pray Now prayer meeting and was very impacting! The Lord’s desire is to have a church that is not conformed to this world. Only then will His life and power flow through us to our needy nation.

In the historical books of the Bible, we learn that God is intimately involved in history and the destiny of nations. We discover an inspired historical record that encourages us to believe that God can and will answer our prayers for America. In the Book of Ezra, for example, we read that God inspired King Cyrus of Persia to urge the Jewish exiles to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple that the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar had destroyed some seventy years earlier.


“Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying, Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: All the kingdoms of the earth the Lord God of heaven has given me. And He has commanded me to build Him a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah. Who is among you of all His people? May his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem which is in Judah, and build the house of the Lord God of Israel (He is God), which is in Jerusalem.” (Ezra 1:1-3)

In Mark chapter 10 we find the story of a blind man named Bartimaeus.
It says that as Jesus went out of Jericho with His disciples a great multitude followed them, and Blind Bartimaeus sat by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David have mercy on me!” Then some warned him to be quiet, but he cried out all the more, “Son of David have mercy on me!” 
 

For Bartimaeus, the first step towards healing was humility.

Today, we’re going to look at the prayer life of a missionary who, while not well known during his life, left an impact on souls for years to come: Jim Elliot. 

 

Jim was born in Oregon in 1927 to a minister and his wife and their two other children. Jim accepted Christ at a young age and grew to be increasingly close to his Heavenly Father. In 1945 he began attending Wheaton College where he learned, perhaps one of the most important lessons for any Christian, discipline.

Often, we find ourselves at a loss of words during our prayer time, or we are just learning to pray, or we have felt we have prayed so much that there are no more words left! We find good news regarding this predicament if we look into the verse found in Romans 8:26-27.

 

“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God."

When Jesus entered the temple everything changed! He drove out all that was keeping His house from being a house of prayer. After He finished, the blind and lame came and were healed! 

When His house is filled with His Presence there is life, light, power, and healing flowing!

Imagine its 1710 in a little village called Epworth, England. You’re the wife of the town cobbler and its been a very busy day for your husband so you’re taking some deliveries for him throughout the village. Spring has arrived and everyone has their windows open, grateful for a taste of fresh, clean air. As you go along you pass the parsonage and glance inside the open window. The sight that meets your eyes stops you in your tracks.

 

There are 8 children on the floor, table and chairs. Some are reading, some are working mathematical equations and a few smaller children are playing with blocks and sticks. In the midst of them is woman, sitting in a chair, and over her face is an apron. Yes, she has set an apron over her face and sits quietly and still. You shake your head, That Susanna Wesley is a strange one, you say to yourself as you walk on. 

 

Yes, that woman was Susanna Wesley, and that was her praying apron.

b2ap3_thumbnail_King-David.jpgIt seems a fitting start, in the series on individuals of intercession, to discuss the man of prayer named King David. Since he practically wrote a whole entire book of prayer called the Psalms, found smack dab in the middle of our Bibles, we see many of his own accounts of desperate prayer and praise directed specifically towards the throne of God itself. Anyone who has spent any amount of time in the Psalms has noticed that David had a full spectrum of very raw and real human emotions, just as we do. But he had the bravery and the deep intimate relationship with the Lord to feel it appropriate to expose the reality of his life and the truest feelings of his heart to God Himself, because he knew God! Before David was lifted to the place of royalty, he was but a lowly and lonely shepherd. He spent days and years alone in the fields tending to sheep and mastered his harp, spending countless hours singing praises to God, fellowshipping, and praying. That is why his psalms are so intimate, because they sprung from an intimate relationship with God himself.

As Christians, we seek to model men and women of faith who run after God and have a relationship with Him that is undeniable. But something, something powerful, sets apart certain men and women of God from the rest. What is it? We believe it is their life of prayer. Those times, early in the morning, midday, or late at night, spent in their closets on their faces before God. Prayer. Prevailing, intercessory prayer, sets the great men and women of God apart from the rest.

 

We will be doing a series, alternating from the lives of men and women of intercession and lessons from King David’s prayer life, with the object of learning from and being encouraged by those who have gone before us.

 

So today, we begin with John Hyde, better known as “Praying Hyde.”

“We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” - Eph. 6:12

 
Many Christians can quote this verse from Ephesians from memory, but as God’s people do we fully understand it’s meaning in the depths of our hearts? 


These principalities and powers of darkness are real, and they are ruled by Satan himself. Satan and his army are working continually to destroy you — to destroy God’s people and to hinder the kingdom of God from advancing on earth. They seek to kill, steal, and destroy!

Many Christians across America spent weeks and months praying for the midterm elections; many spent time praying that the righteous would be exalted and that those who are ungodly would be removed from positions of authority. The midterm election results were not what many had hoped for, and it may seem that our prayers were not heard or answered. 

Because we don’t see all that God sees, we often don’t understand His ways or His decisions. We might not understand why He didn’t answer our prayers according to how we wanted or expected. We may get discouraged and think we have lost ground.

The following was written by Bonnie Barrows in 1976. This powerful message fell on deaf ears more than 30 years, but may the call at the end of the article move our hearts today

The greatest threat to spiritual awakening in America is Christian withdrawal.

Though 2 Chronicles 7:14 promises “healing to the land”, many of God’s people wag their heads in unbelief, questioning whether the land can be healed, or even should be. Twentieth-century prophets of gloom predict that America is beyond hope, beyond faith, beyond mercy. 

This negativism has caused many to turn their backs to the spiritual, social and moral issues facing our nation...to walk away from involvement with a “what can I do about it” attitude.

"After all, isn’t this the way it will be in the last days? Isn’t this just a sign of the times? Let’s eat, drink, and be merry...the Lord is coming soon!”

The following is an excerpt from Kneeling We Triumph by Edwin and Lillian Harvey. ​​​​​​​​

 

There are two ways of praying. One asks and hopes; the other craves and waits until he has obtained. It is just this “until” that characterizes the latter.

 

One seeks God and finds Him; the other strives with God and triumphs. The first observes scrupulously his daily devotions; the second stays on his knees hours a day, through the night.

Recently, I read a testimony of a pastor who before he was converted was a Satanist. He shared that as a satanic high priest he was most effective when believers were prayerless. He said he could gain position in the spiritual realm against those who were not praying. On the other hand, he said when Christians were praying it stopped his evil plans in their tracks. He said he always knew in what cities and neighborhoods Christians were praying. He had less power in cities where God’s people prayed.

 

Why did he have less power? When God’s people pray His power is released.

 

Prayer does not release some mere force of man or nature. Prayer releases the immeasurable wealth and power of Almighty God!

 

“Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” (Jer 33:3)

Three American men, held in captivity without hope, with no way out of the terrible North Korean prison were suddenly set free a few weeks ago!

Imagine if you were in those oppressive prisons, doomed to years of hard labor, and suddenly you were told, “You are free — free to go home, to hug your loved ones. Free at last!” You would walk out of that prison feeling like you were dreaming. That is what these three men experienced. Imagine how they felt when their plane landed on US soil!

When those freed prisoners landed at Andrews Air Force Base one of them gave Vice President Pence a note. Written on it were these words from Psalms 126:
“When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter and our tongue with singing... The Lord has done great things for America, the Lord has done great things for us!”
