Interceding for Indonesia
Prophetic Word (December 2020)
Indonesia, Almighty God watches you, and His eye reveals your heart. A mighty nation you can become when you turn to the Light. Quakes will rock you; will your foundations stand? Fires fall, who will be your shield? Look again to the holy truth, turn from the false prophet, and seek the hand of Immanuel, for He walks in your midst. The innocent blood shed upon the ground cries aloud to the Lord, and He hears. Be careful of the courtiers from the north, they do not seek your good. Seek the Lord as to who you welcome, for in Him true partnerships can be found.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. (Isaiah 43:2)
You have caused men to ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water; But You brought us out to rich fulfillment. (Psalm 66:12)
Our Prayer (March 2021)
Father, You raised this nation from the seas, causing the mountains to come forth, and commanding the waters to stand back. In Your heart a great plan was formed before the beginning of time for this nation of Islands, and You have prophesied it and will not let Your word fall to the dust but will watch over them to perform them. Surely in Your grace you sent good news to our shores, and caused us to know your light, and yet many continue to turn their back on Your Son and hide in shadows. In Your mercy let the fear of God fall upon our people, send Your angels to bring awe in our midst. Come, Lord Jesus, come appear afresh to Your people, and those who have been placed over this nation. Let the Shepherds Rod be made known, and the iron sceptre smash the spirits of deception and false prophecy.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, that You are in our midst, and walk amongst your saints as the fires burn. In Your presence we are delivered, we shall not be consumed by the fires of man or nature, nor swallowed by the waters of destruction. We humbly seek Your saving grace. In Your mercy do not leave these people blind to Your presence, awaken them from their slumber. In as much as they have persecuted Your followers, they have persecuted You, may they know this truth, and see Your hand of justice and mercy move across this land.
As the shaking comes raise the alarm that your saints may find Your refuge, and in the power of Your love their unity become a refuge for their neighbours. May the temples of the false prophet fall to the ground, and the House of God arise from the ashes. You have called us in to the Greater Eastern Empire, may the bird of prey heed Your voice, and know Your name, and Your plans and purposes for this Your far isles be revealed in His eyes. Let our praises go up before You, and our sacrifices be a sweet-smelling aroma to You Father in heaven. You have raised us to rebuild Your temple, and to come to our brother Jacob that He may know the salvation of the Christ.
Thank you, God, that You continue to shape us, forming us like the potter, causing earth, wind, fire, and water to bring forth our nation and its identity. May Your love for this nation overflow into our hearts, and Your chosen ones rise in its power, and heal the broken hearted. Let not flooding rains or smoking mountains dissuade us from revealing Your goodness, pour into our hearts and hands the prosperity that will bless the lost and those hiding in darkness. As a nation may be no longer kick against Your goad, rather let us rise up as Your champion, passionate in love for the Lamb of God, and strong in the army of the King of kings. May we indeed become Your paradise gardens, and You open the doors through Christ that we may enter in.
Father, bless You for Your grace, thank You for Your mercy. In the name of Jesus Christ, AMEN.
Then Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.” So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” (Acts 9:1-6)
