Prayer Preparation for Wichita’s Summer of Justice
Three Days of Prophetic Prayer and Fasting for Wichita:
July 11th- 13th, 2016
Operation Save America is gearing up for our next great adventure in serving the Lord. From July 16th-23rd saints from across America, coupled with the local church in Wichita, KS will participate in Operation Save America’s national event commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the Summer of Mercy.
To help prepare the way of the Lord as we set our face like flint towards Wichita, we are consecrating three days for prayer and fasting. This call is sent out to those who are coming to and to those who cannot make it, but are with us in spirit. This special time, set apart, is extremely important as we seek to advance the Gospel of the Kingdom against the gates of hell. We must obtain God’s blessing, favor, and an open heaven to achieve Kingdom success.
The book of Acts reveals that before the Holy Spirit came in power, the people of God were in one accord. We know from scripture and from experience that when God’s people get lost in the vision and mission of God, unity commands a blessing and that blessing is “life forevermore” (Psalms 133). Unity is not a root obtained by pursuing it, but a fruit, a gift, that God grants His people who obey Him.
We also are well aware that the church cannot win this battle in the arm of the flesh. It is the anointing that destroys the yoke. “Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD Almighty” (Zechariah 4:6). The same Holy Spirit that empowered the early church to face and overcome the evil of their day, is the same Holy Spirit we need to do the same in our day. The Apostle Paul declared, “And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God” (1 Corinthians 2:4, 5). If the Apostle Paul needed this empowerment to be effectual, how much more do we?
Moreover, we need to employ every spiritual weapon and godly principle God has granted His people to be effectual in His service. Most of you know that when we “take it to the streets,” we incorporate the high praises of God, the intimate worship of God, prayers, intercessions, travail, and the blessed proclamation of the Gospel of the Kingdom. As we do these things, we trust that God will watch over His Word to perform it, with mighty signs and wonders following (Jeremiah 1:12; Mark 16:20).
To add to this arsenal, it is vital to include the prayer of agreement. “Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:19-20).
To help fulfill this admonishment from our Lord, we have put together a prayer guide based upon the book of Psalms.
Historically, the book of Psalms has served as the hymnal and prayer guide of the church. It covers the gamut of human endeavors, human emotion, and human predicaments as it relates to God and His will on the earth. It ranges from high exaltation of praise, deep sorrow, cries of justice against God’s enemies, and celebration of great victories.
Practically, there are 150 Psalms that we will divide into three days; 50 Psalms each day. We took one or two key verses from each of the Psalms to use them as an inspiration to guide our prayers. 1 John reminds us of the importance of praying God’s Word. 1 John 5:14, 15 states, “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” Just know, you are not limited by these scriptural references, but I would encourage you to use the book of Psalms as your guide during this appointed time of prayer and fasting.
Another key point as you begin this journey, one aspect of true intercession means “to take the place of.” God’s Word admonishes us to be a voice for the voiceless (Proverbs 31:8, 9). This we intend to do on the streets of Wichita. This time of prayer and fasting, however, will also be utilized to be the voice of the preborn. The preborn cannot pray for their plight, but we can. This kind of intercession will prayerfully prepare the way to intervene and save their lives. Some of the Psalms chosen capture the cry of the oppressed who desperately need God’s intervention. Use these Scriptures to provide the cry on the behalf of the preborn. In other words, if you were in their predicament, how would you pray?
Initially, the plan was to copy and paste the Scriptures to provide easy access to pray. The plan changed. It would be more beneficial, if we took the time to look up these Scriptures, meditate upon them, and then incorporate them into prayer. We pray the Lord grant the grace and time needed to fulfill these three days of consecrated prayer and fasting. May we also see the results of this special time manifested throughout Wichita as we go to stand in the gap and make up the hedge in Jesus’ name!
