THE INVITATION AND CALL

Join the Catalytic, Visionary Corporate Intercessors as they present and reposition the Nation in the original purpose of GOD. The call requires our sustained, unrelenting corporate effort as we immersed the Nation in PRAYER from the West Coast to the East Coast and from the North to the South.

CAN THIS BE DONE?

For this reason, God has asked us to institute a National Prayer Altar to maintain the corporate Cry before His presence; The Altar of Incense should remain lit so that the fragrance of our Intercession may fill the Most Holy Place of His Presence.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING FOR?

Each and every church to receive permission from the congregants who wish to participate, to provide us through their respective church their names, E-mail address, and Mobile number(s). This will be held confidentially for the purpose of Prayer and Intercession. Each engaged Prayer Warrior will be able to access posted information on our secure Website with current prayer needs sent directly to their inbox

HOW WILL WE PRAY?

1Tim 2:1-5; Rom 8:26-27; 1Cor 14:15

WE WILL PRAY FOR: The Nation and every sector that influence the people we become, and our lifestyle practices and accepted norms. We will pray for: - The Church and Religions in the Nation; The Media; The Government and Governance; The Family and its challenges; The Education System; Businesses and their involvement in the Nation; Arts, Entertainment and Culture, The upsurge in the satanic activities and influences in/on the nation.
Children of God who loves the Lord, your NATION, and are passionate for its restoration and Presence-Based Transforming Revival, come in your numbers as we stand in the Gap and repair the Nation’s broken walls.

Psalm 2:1-12 (NLT)

1 Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans? 2 The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the LORD and against his anointed one. 3 “Let us break their chains,” they cry, “and free ourselves from slavery to God.” 4 But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them. 5 Then in anger he rebukes them, terrifying them with his fierce fury. 6 For the Lord declares, “I have placed my chosen king on the throne in Jerusalem, on my holy mountain.” 7 The king proclaims the LORD’s decree: “The LORD said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father. 8 Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession. 9 You will break them with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots.’” 10 Now then, you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth! 11 Serve the LORD with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Submit to God’s royal son, or he will become angry, and you will be destroyed in the midst of all your activities— for his anger flares up in an instant. But what joy for all who take refuge in him!

Reference Scriptures: -

Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV) And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Psalm 2:8 (NLT). Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession.
Malachi 3:1-6 (KJV) 1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. 2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap: 3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness. 4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years. 5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.
6 For I am the LORD, I change not.

  1. ........Because my heart yearns for Jerusalem, (JAMAICA) I cannot remain silent. I will not stop praying for her until her righteousness shines like the dawn, and her salvation blazes like a burning torch.
  2. The nations will see your righteousness. World leaders will be blinded by your glory. And you will be given a new name by the LORD’s own mouth.
  3. The LORD will hold you in his hand for all to see – a splendid crown in the hand of God.
  4. Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee.

The LORD, strong and mighty; the LORD, invincible in battle. 9 Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter. 10 Who is the King of glory? The LORD of Heaven’s Armies– he is the King of glory. Selah [pause, and think of that]!

Habakkuk 1:5 (NLT) The LORD replied, “Look around at the nations; look and be amazed! For I am doing something in your own day, something you wouldn’t believe even if someone told you about it.

Habakkuk 2:14 (NLT) For as the waters fill the sea, the earth will be filled with an awareness of the glory of the LORD.

Proverbs 29:2 (NTL) When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when a wicked man rules, the people groan.

GOD'S INTENDED PURPOSE FOR HIS CREATION:

Psalm 33:6 (NLT) God's intended purpose for His creation. The LORD merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born.

Psalm 33:9 (NLT) For when he spoke, the world began! It appeared at his command.

Psalm 24:1-2 (NLT) It belongs to Him. The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him. 2 For he laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths.

Psalm 19:1-3 (NLT) God intends the earth to declare His glory. 1 The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. 2 Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. 3 They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard.

Psalm 104:10-15 (NLT) God intends for the blessing of man. 10 You make springs pour water into the ravines, so streams gush down from the mountains. 11 They provide water for all the animals, and the wild donkeys quench their thirst. 12 The birds nest beside the streams and sing among the branches of the trees. 13 You send rain on the mountains from your heavenly home, and you fill the earth with the fruit of your labor. 14 You cause grass to grow for the livestock and plants for people to use. You allow them to produce food from the earth – 15 wine to make them glad, olive oil to soothe their skin, and bread to give them strength.

GOD'S COVENANT TO HIS CREATION:

Ezekiel 34:25-26 (NLT) God's covenant of peace. 25 “I will make a covenant of peace with my people and drive away the dangerous animals from the land. Then they will be able to camp safely in the wildest places and sleep in the woods without fear. 26 I will bless my people and their homes around my holy hill. And in the proper season I will send the showers they need. There will be showers of blessing.

Exodus 34:10-11 (NLT) God's covenant of awesome power. 10 The LORD replied, “Listen, I am making a covenant with you in the presence of all your people. I will perform miracles that have never been performed anywhere in all the earth or in any nation. And all the people around you will see the power of the LORD – the awesome power I will display for you. 11 But listen carefully your responsibility is to obey everything I command you today........"

Deuteronomy 7:12-14 (NLT) God's covenant of unfailing love. 12 “If you listen to these regulations and faithfully obey them, the LORD your God will keep his covenant of unfailing love with you, as he solemnly promised your ancestors. 13 He will love you and bless you, and he will give you many children. He will give fertility to your land and your animals...You will have large harvests of grain, new wine, and olive oil, and great herds of cattle, sheep, and goats. 14 You will be blessed above all the nations of the earth....."

Isaiah 55:3; 10-13 (KJV) God's everlasting covenant and sign. 3 “Come to me with your ears wide open. Listen, and you will find life. I will make an everlasting covenant with you. I will give you all the unfailing love I promised to David. 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

DEFILEMENT:

Leviticus 18:24-26 (NLT) Defilement by immorality of non-believers. 24 “Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the people I am expelling from the Promised Land have defiled themselves. As a result, the entire land has become defiled. That is why I am punishing the people who live there, and the land will soon vomit them out. You must strictly obey all of my laws and regulations, and you must not do any of these detestable things. This applies both too you who are Natives and to the Foreigners living among you."

Jeremiah 23:10-11 (NLT) Defilement by immorality of believers. 10 For the land is full of adultery, and it lies under a curse. The land itself is in mourning – its wilderness pastures are dried up. For the prophets do evil and abuse their power. The priests are like the prophets, all ungodly, wicked men. I have seen their despicable acts right here in my own Temple,” says the LORD.

Ezekiel 36:17-19 (NLT) Defilement by Idolatry. 17Son of man, when the people of Israel were living in their own land, they defiled it by their evil deeds. To me their conduct was as unclean as a woman’s menstrual cloth. They polluted the land with murder and by worshipping idols, so I poured out my fury on them. I scattered them to many lands to punish them for the evil way they had lived.

Jeremiah 3:2-3 (NLT) Defilement by idolatry. 2Look all around you. Is there anywhere in the entire land where you have not been defiled by your adulteries with other gods? You sit like a prostitute beside the road waiting for a client. You sit alone like a nomad in the desert. You have polluted the land with your prostitution and your wickedness. That’s why even the spring rains have failed...."

Hosea 4:1-3 (NLT) Shedding of innocent blood & Defilement through violence. 1 Hear the word of the LORD, O people of Israel! The LORD has filed a lawsuit against you, saying: “There is no faithfulness, no kindness, no knowledge of God in your land. You make vows and break them; you kill and steal and commit adultery. There is violence everywhere – one murder after another. That is why your land is producing. It is filled with sadness and all living things are becoming sick and dying. Even the animals, the birds of the sky, and the fish of the sea have begun to disappear.

BREAKING COVENANTS:

Isaiah 24:4-6 (NLT) Breaking covenants curses the earth. 4 The earth mourns and dries up, and the crops waste away and wither. Even the greatest people on earth waste away. 5 The earth suffers for the sins of its people, for they have twisted God’s instructions, violated his laws, and broken his everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore, a curse consumes the earth. Its people must pay the price for their sin. They are destroyed by fire, and only a few are left alive.

Isaiah 24:10-11 (NLT) Breaking covenant brings chaos. 10 The city writhes in chaos; every home is locked to keep out intruders. 11 Mobs gather in the streets, crying out for wine. Joy has turned to gloom. Gladness has been banished from the land.

REPENTANCE:

Ezekiel 36:22-23 (NLT) The standard of repentance. 22Therefore, give the people of Israel this message from the Sovereign LORD: I am bringing you back, but not because you deserve it. I am doing it to protect my holy name, on which you brought shame while you were scattered among the nations. 23 I will show how holy my great name is – the name on which you brought shame among the nations. And when I reveal my holiness through you before their very eyes, says the Sovereign LORD, then the nations will know that I am the LORD.

2 Timothy 2:25-26 (NLT) Repentance is a gift from God. 25 Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth. 26 Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.

Job 42:1-6 (NLT) The character of God in repentance. 1 Then Job replied to the LORD: 2 “I know that you can do anything, and no one can stop you. 3 You asked, ‘Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorance?’ It is I—and I was talking about things I knew nothing about, things far too wonderful for me. 4 You said, ‘Listen and I will speak! I have some questions for you, and you must answer them.’ 5 I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. 6 I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance.”

Hebrews 3:13-15 (NLT) A lifestyle of repentance. 13 You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. 14 For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. 15 Remember what it says: “Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled.”

Psalm 51:6,10(NLT) Thoroughness of repentance. 6 But you desire honesty from the womb, teaching me wisdom even there. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me.

2 Chronicles 34:27 (NLT) Relentless repentance. 27 You were sorry and humbled yourself before God when you heard his words against this city and its people. You humbled yourself and tore your clothing in despair and wept before me in repentance. And I have indeed heard you, says the LORD.

2 Kings 22:19-20 (NLT) Result of repentance. 19 You were sorry and humbled yourself before the LORD when you heard what I said against this city and its people – that this land would be cursed and become desolate. You tore your clothing in despair and wept before me in repentance. And I have indeed heard you, says the LORD. 20 So I will not send the promised disaster until after you have died and been buried in peace. You will not see the disaster I am going to bring on this city.’” So they took her message back to the king.

Luke 19:41-44 (NLT) Danger of delayed repentance. 41 But as they came closer to Jerusalem and Jesus saw the city ahead, he began to weep. 42 How I wish today that you of all people would understand the way to peace. But now it is too late, and peace is hidden from your eyes. 43 Before long your enemies will build ramparts against your walls and encircle you and close in on you from every side. 44 They will crush you into the ground, and your children with you. Your enemies will not leave a single stone in place, because you did not accept your opportunity for salvation.”

ENQUIRING OF THE LORD:

Jeremiah 23:18 (NLT) Inquiring is God's expectation. 18 Have any of these prophets been in the LORD’s presence to hear what he is really saying? Has even one of them cared enough to listen?

Jeremiah 10:21 (NLT) Inquiring is expected of leaders. 21 The shepherds of my people have lost their senses. They no longer seek wisdom from the LORD. Therefore, they fail completely, and their flocks are scattered.

2 Samuel 21:1 (NLT) Enquiring for understanding. 1 There was a famine during David’s reign that lasted for three years, so David asked the LORD about it. And the LORD said, “The famine has come because Saul and his family are guilty of murdering the Gibeonites.”

2 Samuel 2:1 (NLT) Enquiring for clarification. 1 After this, David asked the LORD, “Should I move back to one of the towns of Judah?” “Yes,” the LORD replied. Then David asked, “Which town should I go to?” “To Hebron,” the LORD answered.

Judges 20:26-28 (NLT) Corporately inquiring of the Lord. 26 Then all the Israelites went up to Bethel and wept in the presence of the LORD and fasted until evening. They also brought burnt offerings and peace offerings to the LORD. 27 The Israelites went up seeking direction from the LORD. (In those days the Ark of the Covenant of God was in Bethel, 28 and Phinehas son of Eleazar and grandson of Aaron was the priest.) The Israelites asked the LORD, “Should we fight against our relatives from Benjamin again, or should we stop?” The LORD said, “Go! Tomorrow I will hand them over to you.”

1 Chronicles 15:13-14 (NLT) Consequences of not inquiring of the Lord. 13 Because you Levites did not carry the Ark the first time, the anger of the LORD our God burst out against us. We failed to ask God how to move it properly.” 14 So the priests and the Levites purified themselves in order to bring the Ark of the LORD, the God of Israel, to Jerusalem.

1 Chronicles 10:13-14 (NLT) Danger of enquiring of other sources. 13 So Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD. He failed to obey the LORD’s command, and he even consulted a medium 14 instead of asking the LORD for guidance. So the LORD killed him and turned the kingdom over to David son of Jesse.

Ezekiel 14:3 (NLT) The right to inquire of the Lord. “Son of man, these leaders have set up idols in their hearts. They have embraced things that will make them fall into sin. Why should I listen to their requests?

WORSHIP AS A WEAPON OF WAR:

1 Chronicles 23:4-5 (NLT) Worship as a weapon of war. 4 Then David said, “From all the Levites, 24,000 will supervise the work at the Temple of the LORD. Another 6,000 will serve as officials and judges. 5 Another 4,000 will work as gatekeepers, and 4,000 will praise the LORD with the musical instruments I have made.”

Psalm 149:1; 6-9 (NLT) Worship executes vengeance and judgment. 1 Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song. Sing his praises in the assembly of the faithful. 6 Let the praises of God be in their mouths, and a sharp sword in their hands – 7 to execute vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples, 8 to bind their kings with shackles and their leaders with iron chains, 9 to execute the judgment written against them. This is the glorious privilege of his faithful ones. Praise the LORD!

FASTING:

Daniel 10:2-3 (NLT) Personal Fasting. 2 When this vision came to me, I, Daniel, had been in mourning for three whole weeks. 3 All that time I had eaten no rich food. No meat or wine crossed my lips, and I used no fragrant lotions until those three weeks had passed.

Esther 4:15-16 (NLT) Corporate fasting. 15 Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: 16 “Go and gather together all the Jews of Susa and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will do the same. And then, though it is against the law, I will go in to see the king. If I must die, I must die.”

UNITY: Leviticus 26:7-8 (NLT) Unity puts the enemy to flight. 7 In fact, you will chase down your enemies and slaughter them with your swords. Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand! All your enemies will fall beneath your sword.

Hebrews 3:13-14 (NLT) Unity brings discernment.
13 You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. 14 For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ.
