MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 24 November 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Pray For Your Country
TOPIC: Pray For Your Country (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 24 November 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezekiel 22-23; 1 Peter 1
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalm 122:1-9
MEMORY VERSE: “In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” – Revelation 22:2
As New Testament believers, the Bible tells us that Jesus makes intercession for us daily. Since the Bible enjoins us to imitate Christ, we too ought to be praying and interceding for perishing souls to be saved, our family members, church leaders and pastors, heads of organisations where we work, our colleagues and subordinates, our political leaders as well as our nation at large. Today, individual Christians and churches are guilty of not praying for the nation. The Bible enjoins us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. It adds that those who love Jerusalem and pray for it shall prosper. Beloved, your country of nationality is your Jerusalem. Do you pray for your country?
Is there anything to pray about? Yes, so many things. There is no country that does not have challenge. Pray against violence, wasting and destruction in your country. This comes through terrorism and all kinds of threats to the security of lives and property. With the authority given to you by Christ, you should bind the spirit of terrorism and kick it out of your nation. You can stop bloodshed, murder, kidnapping and hostage taking as well as the human agents perpetrating them.
You can also pray and bring God’s power upon the economy of your country. Prayer can change the unfavourable inflation rate, exchange rate as well as the unemployment rate. Prayer can make the economy to be very brilliant again.
You can also pray about the educational sector of your country and decree an end to strike actions of lecturers in universities that keep institutions locked up and waste students’ valuable time. We must pray for efficient medical system and visionary leadership.
In Psalm 122, the Bible mentions two things we are to pray for concerning our national peace and prosperity. We should pray for peace within our nation’s wall and prosperity within her palaces.
Beloved, we can have the nation of our dreams if we can pray. We can have visionary and transformational leadership if we pray. All our challenges as a nation can end and a turnaround experienced if we can intercede on behalf of our nation. Our nation needs cleansing from sin and shedding of innocent blood.
Are there rewards for praying for your nation? Yes, the Bible says you will prosper for loving and praying for the peace of Jerusalem. Your nation is your Jerusalem. Pray for her!
Jehovah, the governor among nations and the desire of nations.
I DECLARE THAT MY COUNTRY IS FOR JESUS. I DEDICATE MY COUNTRY TO JESUS CHRIST AND COVER HER WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS.
1 O God, arise and cast the spirit of terrorism out of my country, in the name of Jesus.
2 Strong man assigned against the peace of my country, somersault and die, in the name of Jesus.
3 Strong man troubling the progress and prosperity of my country, somersault and die, in the name of Jesus.
4 O God, arise and heal my country, in the name of Jesus.
5 There shall be no more violence, wasting and destruction in my country, in the name of Jesus.
6 My country, receive peace within your walls and prosperity within your palaces, in the name of Jesus.
7 My country, arise and shine, in the name of Jesus.
