禱告經文 Scriptures :
詩篇 Psalm 110:1-3
The Lord says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” The Lord sends forth一/ from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies! Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments; from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours. (ESV)
「我們爭戰的兵器本不是屬血氣的，乃是在神面前有能力，可以攻破堅固的營壘， 將各樣的計謀，各樣攔阻人認識神的那些自高之事，一概攻破了，又將人所有的心意奪回，使他都順服基督。」(哥林多後書 10:4-5)
求主加增每支軍隊禱告生命的容量和深度、並持續擴闊我們的屬靈視野，賜予我們有堅毅不屈、持續為神國復興的奮鬥力；使壇上的火不斷燃燒蔓延，使香港基甸大軍成為火種，延綿不絕地燃燒！願見香港教會眾聖徒禱告的香火鼎盛，晝夜燃燒，能以大量輸出供應萬國列邦，成就「香港」(Habour of Incense)這個城市獨特的命定！
「看哪，我今日立你在列邦列國之上， 為要施行拔出、拆毀、毀壞、傾覆， 又要建立、栽植。」(耶利米書 1:10)
耶路撒冷啊，我在你城上設立守望的， 他們晝夜必不靜默。 呼籲耶和華的，你們不要歇息，也不要使他歇息，直等他建立 耶路撒冷，使耶路撒冷在地上成為可讚美的。(以賽亞書 62:6-7)
Father God, we are deeply grateful for the rising up of this wonderful Gideon’s Army in HK for the past two years. They are truly a great blessing to the HK Body of Christ and especially a great gift and protection for our City and our Nation. We praise You for Your amazing work in uniting this Army in the same spirit of continuous watching, intercession and humble walking together in love like a family.
For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ (2 Corinthians 10:4-5 ESV)
Praise and honour be unto the Lamb, for the forever victory You accomplished on the Cross. Lord, may Your Body continue rising up in every sector and every area to be Your Gideon’s Army. May You greatly protect and strengthen the two Walls that have been built for the past two years, granting them continuous burning passion and torches of blazing fire to march forward towards the promise land. May each and every team of this Gideon’s Army keep growing strong and increasing in power and revelation for the advancement of Your glorious kingdom. May You keep them pure and faithful for Your own glory, as Caleb and Joshua, who have a different spirit to see the enemy as their food and not their threats. (Numbers 13:30-14:9).
“The fire on the altar shall be kept burning on it; it shall not go out. The priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and he shall arrange the burnt offering on it and shall burn on it the fat of the peace offerings. Fire shall be kept burning on the altar continually; it shall not go out.” (Leviticus 6:12-13 ESV)
Lord, please keep the fire of each team burning ！May You give them new burning wood for the Altar, and new anointing of the Holy Spirit, new joy, new wine, new visions and a new level of faith and courage for new plantings. “And it is my prayer that their love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that they may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” (Philippians 1:9-11 ESV).
“For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning torch. The nations shall see your righteousness, and all the kings your glory, and you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will give.” (Isaiah 62:1-2 ESV)
Proclaim this among the nations: Consecrate for war; stir up the mighty men. Let all the men of war draw near; let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak say, “I am a warrior.”
(Joel 3:9-10 ESV)
Lord, we pray for those leaders who might be backsliding and lose heart, for those teams who are discouraged or distracted. We pray that You would set them free from various kinds of captivity, heal them, restore them and even bring them to repentance to revive them, Lord. For You are their shepherd; they will not want. You will make them lie down in green pastures. You will lead them beside still waters. May You restore their soul and lead them in paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake (Psalm 23:1-3 ESV). May You reignite the revival fire in them and bring them to a new level of commitment to love You and pursuing Your kingdom.
“Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord , that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
(Isaiah 55:6-7 ESV)
And they shall be my people, and I will be their God. I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear me forever, for their own good and the good of their children after them. I will make with them an everlasting covenant, that I will not turn away from doing good to them. And I will put the fear of me in their hearts, that they may not turn from me. I will rejoice in doing them good, and I will plant them in this land in faithfulness, with all my heart and all my soul. (Jeremiah 32:38-41 ESV)
Father God, as we are progressing towards in building the third Wall of the Gideon’s Army, Lord, we pray that You will raise up many courageous willing generals, like Nehemiah who committed to rebuild the Walls of Jerusalem, gathering Your people to unity in building. We also pray that many powerful intercessorsory and prophetic leaders, like Jeremiah, would rise up in weeping, travailing and proclaiming Your words to the nations. Lord, may You put out Your hand and touched their mouth and said to them, “Behold, I have put my words in your mouth. See, I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.” (Jeremiah 1:9-10 ESV).
May numerous godly leaders who are in positions of influence also rise up like today’s “Esthers”, being hidden and revealing at specific times. May these precious godly people, including many females redeem their own kingdom identity, stand between the gaps, and able to call their whole nation to fast and pray, for the rescue and salvation of their own people. We hereby especially pray and call forth the Chinese across the nations to rise up strongly in humility and unity to build these Walls of Prayer together, for such an hour as this！We pray that this HK Gideon’s Army would be actively participating in changing the course of human history and impacting the continents, through massive extension of Your kingdom Back to Jerusalem, to get ready for You, the King of Glory’s glorious return.
On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set watchmen; all the day and all the night they shall never be silent. You who put the Lord in remembrance, take no rest, and give him no rest until he establishes Jerusalem and makes it a praise in the earth. (Isaiah 62:6-7 ESV)
In the name of Yeshua we pray, amen.
