Police estimate that 700,000 people showed up to the National Day of Prayer event organized by Angus Buchan in South Africa. On April 22, 2017, thousands of people flooded to a farm in Bloemfontein, located in the nation’s Free State, to pray for South Africa.
According to Buchan, the call to prayer came as the result of being “tired of people taking the law into their own hands. We are going to call upon The Lord to bring justice, peace and hope to our beloved South Africa.”
Buchan is a farmer-turned-minister who wrote a book about his life and journey to faith, titled Faith Like Potatoes. His Shalom Ministries is concerned with fulfilling the Great Commission, caring for orphans and widows, and equipping the saints for the work of ministry, according to the website…. read more
lhwm notes: As people in America continue to take her apart we will find ourselves just like Africa, Yemen, Venezuala… if we do not wake up and see what we have.
Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz has warned that the United States is “disintegrating into anger, anarchy, division” because of its “rejection of God.”
The daughter of evangelist Billy Graham and founder of AnGeL Ministries told the Biblical Recorder in an interview that prayer is America’s answer.
“We need God. Our nation is unraveling …The polarization seems to be paralyzing our government. There seems to be little civil discourse and lots of chaos and confusion. At the same time, we are being threatened by terrorists who are dedicated to destroying us,” Lotz said…. read more
By Susanna Perry-Ettel for Bibles for Mideast
As reported in the story below, believers at a recent baptismal service—including the director of Bibles for Mideast—were stoned and many injured. Pastor Paul sustained serious head wounds, including damage to his skull, and required surgery.
After a week in hospital he has now been secretly moved to the home of a formerly-Muslim, now Christian family. The hospital stay proved too expensive and even unsafe. Militants had heard he was there and began hunting for him.
As he wrote to me today, the family members sheltering him often face persecution and death threats themselves. Doctors instructed him not to use his mobile phone, but he managed to send an email when the others weren’t watching. He asks for our prayers, and explains he may not be able to communicate again for several weeks.
May the Lord protect and restore Pastor Paul, guide and provide for the family he stays with while recuperating and direct and inspire you in your prayers for him and the ministry. [full article]
The worst enemies of President Trump may be his own Secret Service who have sworn to protect him. The so-called “Shadow Government” is testing the waters. Are they practicing for a real “Coup” to take President Trump out of the White House? We can only speculate at this point. But one thing is sure – something nefarious and potentially destructive is happening.
We need to pray!
This week has been an extremely embarrassing one for our nation’s Secret Service, and a scary week for the President.
A total of three significant breaches of security have occurred in the past five days involving the Secret Service; an agency whose very job it is to not make any mistakes. Not only did one White House fence jumper run around the grounds for 15 minutes without being swiftly tackled to the lawn, a second fence jumper breached the White House security today. Oh, and that was one day after a laptop containing security details for Trump Tower was stolen from an unlocked Secret Service vehicle…. [read more]
Prayer: Lord Jesus we lift up our president and vice president and their families and the ones who are for them to watch over them and protect them from EVIL! Lord you placed Mr. Trump as our president for a specific purpose and we pray for your will to be done and no one can thwart your plans. Lord we lift up your name to stop the evil who are trying to destroy them as a person and who hate you Lord. Lord place your mighty hand upon them and hide them under your wings (Psalm 17:8). Lord we pray for angels to guard and watch over them. Evil will tremble and run from your presence Lord. You ARE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!!! Evil will bow to LORD JESUS. We plead the blood of Jesus upon them.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Psalm 10:15 Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none.
Psalm 21:11 For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.
Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Psalm 91:1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand]. 2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust [with great confidence, and on whom I rely]!” 3 For He will save you from the trap of the fowler, And from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you and completely protect you with His pinions, And under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and a wall. 5 You will not be afraid of the terror of night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
More than two dozen pro-life supporters gathered on Tuesday night in front of a Planned Parenthood facility in Washington, D.C., to pray, kicking off a 40-day prayer vigil across the land. Now in its 13th year, 40 Days for Life has similar teams in 340 locations in 40 different countries this year.
Katie Yoder, heading up the team, said the mere presence of believers saves lives: “It might be something as subtle as a car driving up to the clinic, and then slowing down and going past, [with] nobody ever walking into the clinic. Or it might be a couple walking in and out, and you don’t really know if they decided to go through with an abortion or not. But [our] presence does make a difference.”…. [read more]
lhwm notes: Pray for these people as they pray for life to be chosen. We now have a President that represents life and unity instead of death and division. Obama removed the ban to fund international abortions, President Trump has reinstated that ban.
