Taking a Blogging Break

Hi guys. After prayer, and much time with the Lord, I have decided that I must take a break from writing this blog so that I can get back to why I started this blog in the first place: to pray purely for the Chibok girls and Nigeria as a whole.

I don’t know how long I will be taking a break for. Please continue to pray for these girls; and please pray for me, as I take a break to focus solely on getting back to the beginning of why I do this in the first place. Thank you.

The Compassion of God

“But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. Turn to me and have mercy on me; show your strength in behalf of your servant; save me, because I serve you just as my mother did.”
(Psalm 86:15-16, NIV)

There is no compassion like our God’s.

“There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love.”
(Martin Luther King Jr., “Letter from Birmingham Jail”)
This is how I feel towards the fact that the remaining Chibok girls have not been freed, yet. A mixture of love, disappointment, and longing.
But thank You, dear Jesus, for placing this deep love for them inside my heart– even if it means I am sometimes deeply disappointed.
Bring them home soon, Lord Jesus.
In Jesus’ Name I pray,
Amen.

Pray for President Trump’s Meeting with Kim Jong-un

meeting

Tomorrow, June 12th, 2018, US President Donald Trump is meeting with the Supreme Leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, 9am on Tuesday in Singapore, which is 9pm Monday in Washington DC1.

No matter how you might feel about President Trump, I think we can all agree that this meeting with Kim Jong-un is monumental, and is something President Trump needs support and prayers for. After all, this meeting could mean the difference between war and peace for those in the next generation.

We all know that Jesus is coming back one day; and until that day, things in this world will only get worse and worse, as passages like 2 Timothy 3:1-5 state. The role of the United States of America in that whole debacle is unknown, as the Bible does not mention a country like the USA in its descriptions of the end of the world.

However, the US is still standing; and if we turn towards Christ and change our ways to honor and glorify Him, He will bless this country.

With all of this in mind, please pray with me for President Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong-un. I know I have done many short prayer posts recently; but it is too important to not lift up to Jesus. After all, He is in control, even of some of the most powerful people in the world: “The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the LORD; he guides it wherever he pleases” (Proverbs 21:1, NLT).

 

Pray with me, here:
“Dear Lord Jesus,
We thank You, and praise You for being totally in control of all things. We pray now, that You would prepare President Trump to meet with Kim Jong-un; please prepare both of their hearts and minds to meet together, and, if it is Your Will, please let the meeting turn out favorably for the USA. Please keep President Trump safe; and please ultimately give the freedom of those in North Korea, suffering endlessly.

Thank You, Jesus.
In Your Name we pray,
Amen.”


Do you know Jesus?

Kim Jong-un may be seen by some as God, but the Truth of the matter is, there is only One true God—and His Name is Jesus Christ.

Please pray for…

  • President Trump, that He would make God-honoring decisions, and would be prepared to meet with Kim Jong-un.
  • Kim Jong-un. May He realize He is only man, and come to saving faith in Christ Jesus.
  • Those in underground churches in North Korea. Pray that they would be kept safe, and would be bold in their Love for Jesus.
  • The Chibok girls and Leah Sharibu; you can find their names and pictures, here.

 

FRIENDS: I need your opinion!

Hi, Friends & Readers,

As many of you have seen, I end each blogpost with a list of prayer points– and link it to a “prayer sheet” made on Google Docs that you can go to, print out, and use (like this recent one).

I started completing those because I wanted to make your time of prayer better, especially if you tend to journal your prayers, like I sometimes do.

I have not gotten any input from you guys, about whether or not you use those prayer sheets. Even if only one person uses one once, I will continue creating them! But I need your honest input into whether or not they are useful to you guys, and whether or not I should continue using them. Any input, opinion, comments or questions would be very helpful! Please leave your comments below on if these prayer sheets prove useful to you. I want to continue to bless your relationships with Jesus, and further encourage prayer for the Chibok girls, Nigeria, and everything else I speak about on this blog.

As always, thank you for your prayers and support!

Blessings,
Annalee Hoover

Nigeria: Physically Well, but Spiritually Sick

Falz’s “This is Nigeria,” a cover of “This is America” by Childish Gambino, highlights the deep, mass corruption found in Nigeria, something that I wrote about in this post. May Nigeria have a mass revival back to Jesus– only He can clean and heal such a festering wound as corruption.

ISAIAH 62 PRAYER MINISTRY

Amidst the heartbreaking news that so often floods headlines when speaking about Nigeria, news has come that sheds light on Nigeria’s potential in fighting corruption, war, and crime. In August, it was reported that Nigeria had contained Ebola, and was working hard to prevent future cases. The effectiveness of their strategy has shown the world what Nigeria is capable of in regards to healing their nation.

This news is welcomed, as it is an encouragement to those observing the happenings in Nigeria. Nigeria’s potential has also been showcased in their successful attempts at taking back cities from the nation’s notorious terror group, Boko Haram. This fall, several cities were taken back from the terrorists, including the cities of Mubi and Damboa.

Yet, despite all their success, Nigeria still suffers from kidnappings, raids, and the mass killings of “infidels” by Boko Haram– which have reached increasingly evil levels of barbaric violence

Prayer for Memorial Day Weekend

Hi everyone!

Being an American, I wanted to wish everyone a happy Memorial Day weekend!

I have a very sad confession: I had no idea what Memorial Day celebrated until I googled it tonight. I hope I am the only one.

But it’s true; with many people graduating around this time, and the reasons for many national holidays taking a back seat, it is more important than ever to remember why we get these days off, and to pray for our nation.

With also learning about how some things in the military can be—as some things are dark, and many things are traumatic, I wanted to say a quick prayer over the men and women in our military. Will you join me?

“Dear Lord Jesus,
We thank You and we praise You for allowing the creation of the United States of America, and for giving us favor for centuries.

Thank You for the men and women who have lost their lives keeping the USA free, dear Jesus. Thank You for your grace, as we have come away from You in recent decades, Lord. We pray today for our country to come back to You… and we pray that the men and women currently in our military would turn their hearts toward You, amidst all of the evil and darkness they see on a daily basis.

I pray that our country, and it’s people, would come back to You… and that Your Justice, Righteousness, and Sovereignty over us would shine down.

In Jesus’ Name I pray,
Amen!”
