Prayers For All Men And for All In Authority Must Take
By W. C. Moore
Never in all human history were prayers, heart-prayers, agonizing, travailing and prevailing prayers for a Holy Ghost revival for all men and for all that are in authority—so needed, so urgently necessary, so absolutely essential—as NOW!
Prayer must now be made for a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit and, as God’s Word has commanded, for all men and for all that are in authority (1 Tim. 2:1,2).
The Word of God teaches that God gives His Holy Spirit to them “that ask Him” (Luke 11:13). And verses 5-8 show that the asking must be with importunity. And He gives the Holy Spirit to them that obey God (Acts 5:32).
Although the Holy Spirit is a gift (Acts 10:45), He does not come in revival power unless we ask for Him. Revival comes because we ask for revival! We must ask for the mighty moving of the Holy Spirit in sin-convicting, soul-saving power!
“Thus saith the Lord God; I will yet for this be enquired of … to do it” (Ezek. 36:37). “It is time to seek the Lord, till He come and rain righteousness upon you” (Hosea 10:12).
Pray For God’s Will To Be Done!
Though I have not one drop of political blood in my veins, and am not interested in praying that God will preserve this or any other nation that its people may go on in sin, forgetting God, living for self and for pleasure, and despising God’s plan of Salvation through repentance and faith in His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord—yet I am intensely interested in seeing God’s will done in earth as it is in heaven (Matt. 6:10).
And from the very bottom of my heart, I am profoundly interested in getting the Gospel preached in the power of the Holy Ghost to every creature in all nations (Matt. 23:18-20; Mark 16:14-20).
God’s Word has definitely placed upon me, and upon every born-again Christian, the great responsibility of praying for all men, and for all that are in authority: “That we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (1 Timothy 2:1-3).
Oh, ye ministers of the Most High God! Oh, ye leaders of the Lord’s people! “Prepare ye the way ... Lift up a standard for the people” (Isaiah 62:10).
Pray—For Divine Intervention!
Gather together—in churches, in homes, in schools—pray while praying days are here—for God’s definite intervention in the affairs of this and every nation. Time is running out on us. The shadows lengthen. Now is God’s time—make NOW your time also!
For Jesus’ sake, let us read 2 Chronicles 7:14 and remember that we Christians, God’s own people, are directly responsible for national conditions— and let us do our part valiantly and see victory through faith in our God by the Blood of the Lamb, and by the word of our testimony—over all the power of the enemy! (Luke 10:19; 1 John 5:4,5; Rev. 12:9-11; Eph. 6:10-18).
“Let … the ministers of the Lord, weep … and let them say, Spare Thy people, O Lord, and give not Thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?” (Joel 2:17).
We will never win this battle against the powers of darkness without sacrifice! Friends, family, must now be sacrificed or we will never see the victory won!
“Gather My saints together unto Me; those that have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice” (Psalm 50:5).
“Seek ye FIRST the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matt. 6:33).
Doom was averted in the days of Esther by three days of fasting—even after the decree for destruction had gone forth (Esther, chapters 3 to 9). God had sentenced Nineveh to be overthrown in 40 days’ time, but the people turned to God with fasting and prayer, and God averted the judgment from that city (Jonah 3:5-10). Nineveh was saved from destruction because the people, from the king and his nobles on down turned to God, fasted and prayed!
God Is Just The Same Today
God is the same in this crisis year as He was in Jonah’s day—862 B.C. Therefore, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, we are calling all Christians to join in prevailing prayer for:
Divine intervention, and for a mighty revival—a world-girdling outpouring of the Holy Spirit—and for God’s merciful and mighty over rulings in the affairs of this and every nation—and that God will have His way despite the great conspiracy to make this nation a vassal of a One-world State.
Let us believe God’s Word! “The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought” (Psalm 33:10).
It Is Prayer Time In America And The Whole World! We Pray Or We Perish!
The apostle James was killed—and Herod then put Peter in prison. But, thank God, Peter was not killed! God sent an angel and released him from prison. Why? The answer—PRAYER! “But prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him [Peter]” (Acts 12:5). (Read also Acts 12:1-17.)
Pray! Or Perish!
The handwriting is on the wall! (Daniel 5:5; 25-28). Pray, then, America and the whole world. Pray! Or Perish!
“For it is time to seek the Lord, till He come and rain righteousness upon you” (Hosea 10:12).
