This Prayer Team Strategy is a work in progress. As we continue to pray and intercede for souls and for one another, this document will be updated to reflect the vision and direction the Holy Spirit will be leading us. No team is more important than your intercessory prayer team, therefore we will be using this document to build solid systems that will keep us and our vision covered in continuous prayer. Feel free to apply whatever you find here to your ministry. It’s Yeshua’s Platform!!!
Provision and Breakthrough Hinges on Prayer
We are going to need a lot of things to see this movement become reality: people, opportunities, land, resources, money, connections, etc. It’s going to require more than we can arrange for. It’s going to require what only God can provide, and there will be opposition. Consider Daniel’s experience:
“Then [the angel] said, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your request has been heard in heaven. I have come in answer to your prayer. But for twenty-one days the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia blocked my way…” Daniel 10 (NLT)
The Importance of Prayer
Brethren, you all know the story of Israel and its ancient capital Jerusalem – the city of Peace. Jerusalem has been involved in wars throughout its 3,000+ years. It was discovered recently that parts of the city had been destroyed 40 times with about 118 conflicts. As I am writing this paper the city is divided into four quarters by the Armenian, Christian, Jewish and Muslim residents. The Palestinians have vowed to regain control of the City and to annihilate the Jews. All this is happening to Jerusalem because at the time of her judgement, NO ONE WAS FOUND TO INTERCEDE for her. Ezekiel 22:1-30.
Remember Nineveh, after Jonah proclaimed God’s judgement upon this gentile nation, when the people repented, God spared them. But God did not spare His own people and His own city of Jerusalem for their sins because NO ONE WAS FOUND TO STAND IN THE GAP.
Ezekiel 22:30-31, “I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one. So, I will pour out my wrath on them and consume them with my fiery anger, bringing down on their own heads all they have done, declares the Sovereign Lord.”
“Oh, Lord, My God, may we find favor in your sight today, To build that wall in our generation, And to stand before you in the gap, On behalf of your holy city Jerusalem and Israel – your chosen people and land; And on behalf of all nations – America, Africa, Asia, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Australia, Middle East, the 10-40 Window, North, South, West and East and the whole world, So that you would not have to destroy us again”.
“We covenant with you, HOLY SPIRIT, According to your grace and calling upon our lives, That by faith in Our LORD JESUS CHRIST, We will never be silent day or night, We will give ourselves no rest, And we will give our FATHER G_D no rest, Till You establish Jerusalem and make her the praise of the earth. For it is in the blessing of Abraham and his descendants, Israel through our LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST – YESHUA HAMASHIACH that we all will be blessed – Jew and Gentile” AMEN!
Isaiah 62:6,7 I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem;
they will never be silent day or night.
You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest,
7 and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem
and makes her the praise of the earth.
Our Mission and Goal
Our mission is to pray for the fulfillment in our generation of the prophetic utterance of Jesus Christ in Matthew 24:14 that “…this good news of the Kingdom will be announced throughout the whole world as a witness to the nations. …then …the end will come”. Our goal is to recruit up to 70 believers of all cultural backgrounds, Jews and Gentiles, black and white, rich or poor by 2020 to begin organizing prayer conferences throughout the world for planting missional churches among the unreached people-groups with a priority to the Jewish people in Jerusalem, Israel, the 10-40 window and to the ends of the earth (see Acts 1:8, Romans 1:16, Matthew 28:18-20). Planting missional churches is spiritual invasion into enemy territory. Surrounding ourselves with a team of prayer warriors from around the world is the single best thing we can do to clear the way for people to come to Christ. Knowing that this movement will always be opposed in the spiritual realm, we will work under the leadership of the Holy Spirit to recruit as many as are led by the Spirit outside the initial 70 membership. There will be no room for the flesh, this movement will be totally led by the Holy Spirit: With God’s help, we commit to hitting this goal by: 04/30/2020
II Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.”
