Father, shine Your LIGHT before Your people and show each one how to walk through these times we are in. 

Get people ready for the shaking that has yet to come, “For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations . . .” (Hagg.2:6,7). Thank-You, Holy Father, that Your Word gives us warning for that which is to come so that we can be prepared.

I pray You would bring revelations of Your Words of prophecy to wake Your people up. Wake up Your sleeping people who do not understand that these times need not be shocking; that these times need not be troubling; that these times need not be fearful; that these are those days of which Jesus/Yeshus said: “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matt.24:21); and He said “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”(Lk.21:28).

Father, remind Your people, too, that we are meant to be anticipating Jesus/Yeshua’s return with joy & rejoicing: “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself”(Phil.3:20,21). What a glorious day that will be!

Bring a spiritual tsunami; bring a spiritual earthquake; do whatever it takes to wake Your sleeping believers up and prune them of complacency, apathy, and self-focussed carnal living. Let there be “Suddenly a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison will be shaken; and immediately all the doors will be opened and everyone’s chains loosed” (Acts 16:26). Loose Your people from the chains of bondage to their fleshly lusts and desires, that they would be impassioned about YOU, instead of the pleasures of the world. I pray for a flash of thunder to suddenly awaken each one to what really counts. May it happen “With thunder and earthquake and great noise, With storm and tempest And the flame of devouring fire” (Isa.29:6).

Make us all ready for whatever lifestyle changes the current situation will have created, for the new reality we must live with, economically, for whatever period of time that needs to be. Enable us to accept the reality that life may never be quite the same again. Our present standard of living may not be retrieved.

I pray you would raise up strong those individuals that You have hand-picked who, like Zerubbabel, You can anoint and appoint, “‘and will make them like a signet ring; for You have chosen them,’” (Hagg.2:23). We need these ones who can lead, set the stage for a higher level, being good examples and supports for how believers can walk through this time yet to come. 

Lord, You have the answer to all that is, and all that is to come. Let us who truly believe, abide in, and walk in, allowing You to provide all our needs, for You are our all in all (Eph.1:23; 1 Cor.12:6; 1 Cor. 15:28). Thank-You, Father, in Jesus/Yeshua’s Name. Amen.
