Urgent Prayer Request: Worldwide Floods

worldwide flooding

While many know of, or have experienced Hurricane Harvey, not much of the world knows about the Benue flood currently happening in Makurdi, Benue State, Nigeria.

Benue State, Nigeria. More than 110,00 people have been displaced by this flood, which started August 27th, 2017.

In fact, according to this CNN report, six other places around the world are experiencing horrific monsoons and floods, killing thousands and displacing hundreds of thousands.

The amount of flooding, displacement and death from all over the world seems too vast to even comprehend, much less do anything about. But there is One who is Sovereignromans 8.28 over it all, working to bring about good for those who love Him: Jesus Christ (Romans 8:28).

“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
(Hebrews 4:16, NIV)

Will you join me in coming before God’s throne of grace, and lifting up these people?

“Dear Lord Jesus,

There is so much flooding… You know this full well. It seems all too much for us to think about, Father God, but we know that You do not miss a single hair on any Believers’ heads.

Father God, we lift up those in Hurricane Harvey, in Texas, and also those who are experiencing flooding in the surrounding states. Dear Jesus, please show all people involved in this horrendous experience that You are Lord of All.

We lift up those in Benue state, Nigeria. Dear Jesus, please bring these people out of the floodwaters and give them all the comfort, safety, and security that they need. Please show us how we can donate to all of these disasters, and provide the comfort, safety, and security that they need. Please cause the floodwaters to go down, soon.

Dear Jesus, we pray for Bangladesh, where, so far, hundreds have passed away. Dear Jesus, please show the people of Bangladesh that You alone are God; please reveal Yourself mightily to the muslims, buddhists, and other nonbelievers that are in that region and area. Please use this evil and tragic thing for Your Glory and their good.

Father God, we lift up those in India. Please give those who trust in Your Name respite from the storms; please show those who do not know You that You can be their refuge in the storm. Please raise up humanitarian organizations to assist and aid those in deep distress!

Father God, we pray for your intervention in Sierra Leone‘s mudslide and flooding. You know every person who has suffered and died in this flooding; please bring Peace, Comfort, and even Joy to their hearts, amidst the pain.

Lord God, we also pray over the landslides in Nepal. Dear Jesus, we pray in Your Name that You would provide shelter for those crying out to You in the midst of their terror. Father God, please show us how we can love these people. Provide Your People in the lives of those in these places, to hug, hold, and uplift those who have lost everything. Please let their loving, compassionate care lead them into a Personal relationship with You.

Lord, we lift up Pakistan and the city of Karachi, where monsoon flooding has occurred. Jesus, we lift up the 27 people who have passed in Pakistan, as well as the approximately 593 others who have passed in flooding worldwide… we pray that these death tolls do not rise more, Lord Jesus. We ask, and beg in Your Name, that You would preserve the lives of these people, and would bring them to You.

Dear Jesus,
Please, protect those currently dealing with Hurricane Irma. Both in the Caribbeans and on the east coast of Florida and surrounding states, please give these people wisdom, guidance, and understanding; please help them to evacuate, before Irma hits, and help those who have already gone through Hurricane Irma. 

Lord Jesus, please help those suffering from Hurricane Katia in Mexico… please hold those who are losing their homes, and protect these people from death tolls.

Thank You for all of this, Lord Jesus.

In Jesus’ Name we pray,

Amen.”

Prayer for Day 6 of GLOBAL WEEK OF ACTION: #3YearsTooLong #NoMoreExcuses #BringBackHisGirls

This week, the Bring Back Our Girls’ movement is commemorating the third anniversary of the Chibok Schoolgirls’ kidnapping by having what they call a GLOBAL WEEK OF ACTION. During this Week of Action, they have daily marches from the Unity Fountain in Abuja, Nigeria to the Nigerian President’s villa gate, as well as holding different events every day. To also commemorate the Chibok girls’ kidnapping, ISAIAH 62 PRAYER MINISTRY will be saying a prayer each day for the Chibok girls, as well as highlighting what the Bring Back Our Girls’ movement is doing each day.

Please join in prayer for today, the sixth day of the GLOBAL WEEK OF ACTION.


“Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for making each and every one of us, 
all because You Love us, and want to be in relationship with us.
You are beautiful, Lord Jesus!

Lord Jesus,
I pray, in Your Name,
That You would touch each Chibok girls’ life in a very real, tangible, and transforming way, today.

Please show each one of them how much You Love them; may that Love, even in captivity, transform their lives, and give them unmistakable Hope for the Future.
Please, speak out for them today, and intervene on their behalf, Lord Jesus.

May they be brought Home, in Your Mighty Name, in Your Precious Timing.
Thank You, Lord Jesus!
In Jesus’ Name I pray,
Amen.”

Today, aside from their daily march, the Bring Back Our Girls’ movement had an evening with Creatives and Artists. Please check out their webpage and scroll down to the “Activity Sheet for Three Year Commemoration” for more details, and to try to participate!

Prayer for Day 3 of GLOBAL WEEK OF ACTION: #3YearsTooLong #NoMoreExcuses #BringBackHisGirls

This week, Bring Back Our Girls is having a Global Week of Action, where they are commemorating the third anniversary of the Chibok Schoolgirls Kidnapping, which happened on April 14th, 2017. They are demanding during this week that there would be #NoExcuses, and that the Chibok Girls would be found, freed, and brought back home.

As apart of this Global Week of Action, ISAIAH 62 PRAYER MINISTRY has decided to pray each day for the Chibok girls; ISAIAH 62 PRAYER MINISTRY also wanted to highlight the different events going on in Nigeria and around the world for these girls.

Today, the Bring Back Our Girls movement will be marching (as they will be every day), and also had a Workshop on Missing Person’s Register at 10 AM in Yar-Adua Center in Nigeria. To see more of what is planned for this week, feel free to visit the Bring Back Our Girls’ website!

In light of all of this, let’s pray.

“Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for being present with us, wherever we are,  however we are, and whenever we are. You are “Emmanuel”: “God With Us.” Thank You for this amazing privilege!

Dear Jesus,
We pray over the Chibok school girls; we thank You, that they are all alive (source), and that You are still working in their lives. 
Dear Jesus, 
We pray in Your Name that these Chibok school girls would be filled with Your Joy, Hope, and Peace, as they come to know You– and that this Joy, Hope and Peace would not be able to be stolen from them.
Please protect these things in Your Name, Lord Jesus, 
and please, give their families, loved ones, and all who care about them this same Peace, Hope, and Joy, as they look to You to save and deliver the Chibok girls.
We trust You, Lord Jesus.
We ask in Your Name, along with the Bring Back Our Girls’ protesters, that they would be brought soon, and alive.
In Jesus’ Name I pray,
Amen.”

Thank You for your prayers– May Jesus bless you! 🙂

Prayer for Day 3 of GLOBAL WEEK OF ACTION: #3YearsTooLong #NoMoreExcuses #BringBackHisGirls #BringBackOurGirls

This week is the GLOBAL WEEK OF ACTION, created by the Bring Back Our Girls movement to commemorate the kidnapping of 276 Chibok schoolgirls, three years ago, as of April 14th, 2014.

Today is Day 3 of the Week of Action, and Isaiah 62 Prayer Ministry will pray each day of the Global Week of Action, for the Global Week of Action and for the Chibok Girls.

Please pray with us:

“Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for bring the God who gives life, and who restores.
While we know that this horrific tragedy was not of your doing, but the doing of sinful mankind,
we know that You can and will use even this event to bring beauty from ashes.

Dear Jesus,
This is what we pray for today: that You would protect each Chibok schoolgirl that continues to be missing and held captive by Boko Haram. Please protect every captive, according to Your Goodness, Grace, and Mercy. 

Please give those participating in events as apart of the Bring Back Our Girls’ Global Week of Action Strength, and please let them come to see and know You, as apart of this week’s events.
As we commemorate this horrible occurrence, we look for Your Hope and Deliverance, Lord Jesus, for NOTHING is impossible with You!

In Jesus’ Name I pray,

Amen.”

Thank you for your prayers! To be involved in the daily events occurring in honor of the Global Week of Action, please click here.

Prayer During Global Week of Action: #3YearsTooLong: #NoMoreExcuses #BringBackHisGirls #BringBackOurGirls

Yesterday, April 7th, 2017, marked Day 1 of BringBackOurGirls’ Global Week of Action, with the theme: “#3YearsTooLong: #NoMoreExcuses #BringBackOurGirls” (Source).

If you would like to participate in any way in this Week of Global Action, please visit the Bring Back Our Girls website, by clicking here. While the writers Isaiah 62 Prayer Ministry cannot be there, in Nigeria, to walk with, pray with, and participate in the weeks’ events, it has pledged to pray each day of the week this week– and to share with others the sad fact that it has been 3 years since the Chibok schoolgirls have been kidnapped.

Because yesterday was the first day of the Global Week of Action, there will be two prayers, today. Please join in prayer:

“Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for all that You have done in our lives. Thank You for being the great “I AM,” the Creator of all things, Sovereign over every event in our lives.
Today, 
Lord Jesus,
We mourn the fact that it has been 3 years since the Chibok school girls have been kidnapped, while 195 remain missing.
It is our Prayer, Lord Jesus, that You would instill Hope, even now, in the hearts of the Chibok Girls, their parents, loved ones, and the rest of the world, looking on this sad, sad anniversary.

We pray that broken, crushed Spirits would realize how near You are (Psalm 34:18), and that they would seek You out, and find You as their Lord, Savior, and God of all Comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3-5). 

We pray all of this in Your Name, Lord Jesus.
Amen.”



“Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for also being the God that is faithful to provide. 
You provided Yourself, for the problem of sin, so that now we can live and be with You! 
Your Word says, “He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all–how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things” (Romans 8:32)?
We cling to Your Word now, and ask in Jesus’ Name that You would provide for the release/rescue of the Chibok Schoolgirls, Soon, according to Your Will and Timing, Dear Jesus. 
As these young girls still sit in captivity, please provide for them, for their daily needs: food, water, and shelter, but so much more, dear Jesus, we pray You would bring them to You. 

Please fill these girls with the Peace, Joy, Love, and Comfort that Your Presence brings, even in captivity. 
We know nothing is impossible for You, Jesus, and so we ask this in Your Name.
Amen.”

 

Thank you for your continued prayers. Please share this with everyone you know!
Jesus bless you.

“PRAYER FOR THE CHIBOK GIRL OF THE WEEK”: A new prayer resource

Almost a month ago,  Isaiah 62 Prayer Ministry was led by Jesus to create a new feature, focused on praying for each individual Chibok schoolgirl.

Because of this, Isaiah 62 Prayer Ministry has created a new prayer page, called “Prayer for the Chibok Girl of the Week.” Each week, a new Chibok school girl from this image will be featured. Their name and picture will be posted, as well as a short biography about them. If they are free or not will be noted, along with a short prayer for the young woman. It is Isaiah 62 Prayer Ministry’s prayer that all of the girls will be freed. Therefore, Isaiah 62 Prayer Ministry is committed to loving, supporting, and praying for each Chibok schoolgirl, while helping readers to do so, as well.

After the Chibok Girl to Pray for of the Week has been featured, they will then be featured in the page, “PRAYER OF SURRENDER/RELEASE” (found in the drop-down menu under “PRAYER FOR THE CHIBOK GIRL OF THE WEEK”). This page will feature the Chibok girl again, and will include a separate prayer, releasing and surrendering the Chibok Girl into Jesus’ Hands. While this does mean that they will no longer be especially featured in this way, it does not at all mean that we have stopped, or should stop, praying for them as an individual. Jesus told His followers, in the Parable of the Persistent Widow, to never stop praying until they see results: And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly” (Luke 18:7-8). Isaiah 62 Prayer Ministry encourages readers to continue to pray for each one of these girls, as they are led!

It is the hope and prayer that this new feature will encourage you, as a reader, to pray for the Chibok girls: as a whole, but also as an individual. May Jesus bring each one of these girls to Himself– and therefore, to complete freedom.
