In our previous prayer alert we prayed for repudiation of radical Muslim militia violence against embassies throughout the world on and after the eleventh anniversary of 9/11. On 9/21, ten days after Islamist militias attacked the US Embassy in Benghazi and killed four US diplomats, thousands of Libyans demonstrated against those militias. They seized control of several militia headquarters and handed them over to Libya’s national army, forcing the militants to flee, but pillaging weapons in the process.
We must pray for peace and freedom with responsibility in Libya and other nations, as opposed to Muslim domination and Sharia law. For voices are arising to rewrite these recent events. Many like CAIR are blaming the embassy attacks on America and its “war on Islam”–though it was radical Islamists who attacked America on 9/11.
Others want to rewrite history itself. There are abundant instances of American history textbooks being rewritten to delete Christian influences and insert Muslim influences, no doubt because Muslims are becoming a dominant force in textbook publishing. And the denial of the historic WWII Holocaust extermination of millions of Jews was defended Monday before the UN by Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
But no one can deny that Ahmadinejad has called for the extermination of millions of Jews now living in Israel. Since Iran is nearing the nuclear capacity to do that, Israel is now considering an EMP attack on Iran as the only sure way to halt Iran’s nuclear ambitions. But an EMP attack would destroy all non-hardened electronic devices in Iran, paralyzing the nation for at least several months, and possibly resulting in millions of deaths due to lack of food distribution and fighting over food supplies. And this at a time when Iran is experiencing a nationwide revival, with millions of conversions to Christ in the last few years.
PRAY WITH US: Father God, You are King of kings and Lord of Lords, and You steer the hearts of kings like a watercourse. Many Islamic nations are in an uproar, and their peoples are devising a vain thing. The kings of the earth take their stand, and the rulers counsel together against the You and against Your Anointed One. They are attacking Your Son by saying He is illegitimate. They are attacking Your chosen people by saying Jews should be exterminated from the Middle East and from the land You gave to them forever. They are attacking America which has been trying to help them establish stable governments of the people. We declare that this is blind hatred based on lies, and that You desire to heal the blind so they may see the light of Your gospel truth, as You did when murderous Saul became evangelistic Paul.
Do not let their plans or weapons prosper. Destroy weapons of mass murder and release Holy Spirit outpourings for mass conversions. Thank You that You have already saved millions of Iranians. Show Muslims that Jesus is the desire of the nations. Bring many millions more Muslims into Your kingdom, and when the fullness of the Gentiles comes in, save millions of Jews just as You promised. Be their mighty God and Prince of Peace, in Jesus’ name, amen.
