Father, prepare our wandering, fickle hearts for the time is at hand when persecution will come upon all Your people.

Prepare our fickle hearts, “for the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him” (2 Chron.16:9). Make us each to “be a vessel for honour, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work” (2 Tim.2:21).

Correct our floundering steps & wayward ways, that we will walk in obedience, as Esther; that we will walk in authority, in intercession/warfare, ready to be the Watchman on the Wall (Isa.62:6,7; Isa.21:11), for You “have set watchmen. . . day and all night  …” that we do not slack off and take rest for ourselves . .

Make us to walk in such faithful fearlessness that we will be prepared, ready      to lay our lives down if so called, for “Who knows whether we have attained royal status for such a time as this?” (4:14). Let our hearts be so loyal, surrendered – sold out – plugged into Your purposes, that we each will be willing to put Your cause before our own life (Rev.12:11); and we thank You, Father, that when You call us to it, we have Your covering.

In Jesus/Yeshua’s Holy Name. Amen.
