For the word of God is living and powerful,
And sharper than any two-edged sword,
Piercing even to the division of soul and spirit,
And of joints and marrow,
And is a discerner of the

thoughts and intents of the heart.
And there is no creature hidden from His sight,
But all things are naked and open

to the eyes of Him
to Whom we must give account.
Hebrews 4:12-13 NKJV


     
"If anyone
causes one of these little ones—
those who believe in me—
to stumble, it would be better for them
if a large millstone
were hung around their neck
and they were thrown into the sea.”
Mark 9:42 NIV
    

  
[Jesus said]
“I tell you, on the day of judgment
people will give account for
every careless word they speak,
for by your words you will be justified,
and by your words
you will be condemned.”
Matthew 12:36-37 ESV
 


For the sake of the children and Your children throughout the world, move us and mobilize us to arise and cry out in the night ~ and throughout the night, pouring out our hearts like water before Your Face, lifting our hands toward You for the lives of all who are lost, for all who are infected by and continue to spread the grave disease of this culture, those fainting from hunger and thirst for You, those flailing and falling at the head of every street.
 
(Inspired by Lamentations 2:19)​​



Make bold the hearts of those who seek You, that all may take a public stand for what is right and good. Keep complacency far from us. May we be influencers of those who influence others. Those who are dancing in the darkness, may these be driven to the Light, and may they lead vast multitudes to You.


O Father, like raging torrents of water, send forth Your Spirit into the world. Rain down upon all flesh – convicting, teaching and empowering… Please pry open the eyes of every human heart that all may behold Your excellent glory. We plead for a clear revelation of Your Purpose and Love to all who shape public opinion and those establishing and leading cultural trends. Expose all that violates Your holy Commands, those things inviting Judgment upon individuals and nations. Pierce their hearts with Your holiness; turn them to Your Sacred Word ~ day and night, giving them no rest until they embrace Your Truth.    
We ask that the strategies of the enemy be thrust back by the power of Your mighty outstretched Arm. Crush all counsels and influences of darkness!
May Your message of Love and Justice light every corner of Your creation. May Your people burn with desire to lead others into a knowledge of the Truth – and grant these extraordinary creativity, a fresh and powerful anointing so necessary to address the spiritual and physical battles of this Great War in these Great Times. Grant these favor, Lord.
Father, at the end of each day – no, at the end of each moment, we desperately desire that the prayerful efforts of our hearts and the physical labors of our hands result in thunderous praise that shakes the heavens as the chains of sin and death fall quickly away as sinners lift their hearts and hands to You, fleeing from the darkness, embracing Light, authentic Love, and true Freedom.


Convict all as they retrieve information or seek entertainment from television, radio, libraries, bookstores, the Internet, and other resources. May they feel a sense of revulsion over all that is vile. Please cause them to recognize those things that pollute their hearts, separating themselves from those things to passionately pursue holiness.
Mobilize us to pray for those who are leading multitudes astray – praying fiercely that they will recognize this present darkness. Oh Mountain Mover, please move the mountains of human hearts that they may see You clearly.
May You receive all honor and glory due Your holy and excellent Name.


Father,
please encourage and exalt Christian writers, teachers, and leaders. May they be a powerful influence of Light upon all who walk in darkness. Please anoint them with special abilities and unique creativity and a generous portion of urgent enthusiasm. May there be a powerful, positive distinction between every false teacher and those who speak Truth. May their methods bear results that cannot be humanly measured. Please raise up armies of heroes of faith, so needed for these desperate days. Mobilize them to sound the alarm, to cry out to the masses about the coming Judgment. May they walk with all humility, seeking to make only Your Name famous throughout the world.


Hollywood and other centers of entertainment are filled with dark stars. Please draw these into Your holy Presence and into a dynamic, life-changing encounter with the Living God. We ask that from this experience they might profoundly reverence You and pursue wisdom so that they might shine, as in the words of Daniel, like the brightness of the firmament leading vast multitudes from the darkness into Your glorious Light.
 
(Inspired by Daniel 12:3)


So many celebrities are seeking authentic Love. As these thirst for fame and the admiration of individuals, may they encounter the wonder of Who You Are and comprehend how deeply You desire them… A passion so strong, Christ chose to embrace the brutality of a Roman Cross to demonstrate the magnitude of His Devotion.
Let mocking cease. Let irreverence cease. Let love and respect be ignited and bear a fierce, unquenchable flame that consumes the self-focused agendas of those who craft our culture. In their lives, in all our lives, may You be honored and glorified.


Please, Father,
move on the hearts of those who educate and indoctrinate the children – Your children. Expose dark agendas – confuse and confound them. Let there be a distinction among authentic Christian educators and influencers. Turn our children’s hearts away from every influence that seeks to diminish their reverence for You.
Especially encourage Christian teachers who labor in the fields of public education. Raise up and recognize great heroes of faith, granting them words of wisdom that cast down arguments and all that seeks to exalt itself above the Knowledge of God.
Bring parents to a level of involvement that will bring about sweeping positive change and revival within our educational systems.
Please protect those who homeschool or have their children in Christian schools. Protect them from any encroachment upon their religious freedoms currently enjoyed.
Above all, may parents saturate their children – Your children with Your holy Word ~ their power to stand against every strategy of the enemy of their souls.
Revive the nations through the children, Lord. The church has slept through the alarms. Awaken them, now, Father. The children need You. Your children need You.


May we be sober and vigilant, always aware that our adversary the devil stalks about as a hungry, roaring lion, seeking to devour all that he can within the short time he has left. Help us to resist him, standing firmly in faith, fighting for the hearts and minds of those who don’t even know there’s a battle, suffering for their freedom, so that vast multitudes who are lost will open their hearts and find their way to You.
 
(Inspired by I Peter 5:8-9)

  
“Let me tell you why you are here.
You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out
the God-flavors of this earth.
If you lose your saltiness,
how will people taste godliness?
You’ve lost your usefulness
and will end up in the garbage.
Here’s another way to put it:
You’re here to be light,
bringing out the God-colors in the world.
God is not a secret to be kept.
We’re going public with this,
as public as a city on a hill.
If I make you light-bearers,
you don’t think I’m going to
hide you under a bucket, do you?
I’m putting you on a light stand.
Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop,
on a light stand—shine! Keep open house;
be generous with your lives.
By opening up to others,
you’ll prompt people to open up with God
 this generous Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:13-16 MSG
    

Yes, Father!
We’re called to share Your Light with those who are walking in darkness. We’re called to share Your Love with all people, including those who reject, despise, or oppress us. Grant us boldness, wisdom and opportunity.
Whether in prayer or in person, may Your children who love and honor You be granted great influence to influence vast multitudes of those who influence our culture for good or evil. We need this in these dark and dangerous days.
Powerfully anoint and supernaturally enhance the talents and resources You’ve given Your children, granting them favor that results in one final phenomenal global Awakening before You conclude this era of activity on Earth.
Every breath of our lives and every beat of our hearts, all for Your honor and glory and praise!
