Mayday! Mayday! A Distress Call for Prayer
For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now…Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He saved them from their distress. - Matthew 24:21, Psalm 107:19
In these days of desperation and confusion, hopelessness and helplessness, when mountains are collapsing, nations are warring, people are rioting, the earth is quaking, and the enemy is threatening, it’s time to cry out to the Lord! Now!
The nine days between the day of the Ascension of Jesus and the Day of Pentecost have Biblically and traditionally been days of prayer and fasting for an outpouring of God’s Spirit. This year, those days fall on May 15-23. On each of the 9 days, join together with me and thousands of other followers of Jesus Christ, as we implore God to save us from our distress. Before Jesus comes and judgment falls.
Pray one hour each day for 9 days, May 15-23.
- To claim God the Father’s promise of an outpouring of His Spirit in these days following extraordinary signs in the sky (read Is God Signaling Us?): …I will pour out my Spirit in those days …The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. Joel 2:29, 31
- To implore God the Holy Spirit to compel the church to repent of sin and our nation to return to faith in the living God, that times of refreshing may come… Acts 3:19
- To entreat God our Savior for an abundant harvest of souls for His Kingdom in the remaining days. "Do you not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest." John 4:35
- To delay or soften God’s judgment that is coming on America and on our world. Who knows? He may turn and have pity and leave behind a blessing. Joel 2:13-14
