International Day of Prayer: Pray against Global Terrorism

November 6th is International Day of Prayer. Ask God what He would like you to pray for. “Holy Spirit, speak to us the needs of the nations and help us to hear how to pray!!!”

Prayer 1

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.   Eph. 6:12

Pray against terrorism, the unlawful use of force or violence against civilians, its goal is to destroy human life, families, communities and societies. It encourages chaos and panic. Pray against the principalities, powers, and rulers of darkness and spiritual hosts of wickedness, using fear to manipulate people, governments and nations.

Prayer 2

Who is this King of Glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Psalm 24:8

Pray for Jehovah Gibbor, the Lord mighty in battle to arise and scatter His enemies. That all terrorist organizations to lose members, funding and be thoroughly defeated.

Prayer 3

A wise king winnows out the wicked; he drives the threshing wheel over them. Proverbs 20:26

Pray for governments to take action against terrorism. Pray for partnerships and collaboration between nations and for the Lord to give leaders wisdom and new strategies for fighting and defeating terrorism.

Prayer 4

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people, for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, what wants all people to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth.  1Tim. 2:1-4

Pray for the blinded eyes of the terrorists to be opened to see the light of the gospel. Pray for the salvation of key members of organizations like al-Qaeda, Hamas, al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, Hezbollah, the Taliban, and al-Qaeda in Arabian Peninsula to put their faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

Prayer 5

May they ever be ashamed and dismayed; may they perish in disgrace.  Psalm 83:17

Pray for the Lord to overturn the plans of terrorists, confounding them and putting them to shame. Ask the Lord to set them in slippery places, cast them down to destruction, and utterly consume them with terrors. Pray they will repent and give their lives to Christ.
