The Is.2:2 Prayer Project is a response to God’s instruction to raise an army of watchmen interceding for His move on the earth in our time and season. God has started and is still recruiting an army (especially among the youth) of men and women who will spare head an upcoming revival. It is already brewing! It is a revival which will stem out of the church but not like the revivals of the past. It’s purpose is to establish prepared believers as Light bearers in their world full of darkness, solution providers in their respective areas of calling and career. They shall be men and women that will manifest an unseen dimension of the “Spirit of knowledge” as Market Place Apostles.
If you are a young man or woman, a young boy or girl who believes your career, your business, your schooling is a tool in God’s hands to advance His Kingdom in your field, I enjoin you to be a part of this. And for many yet seeking to find relevance in this new move of God, you are welcome to be a part.
The Prayer project is a commitment to pray down God’s strategic move for this season – establish His church in places of influence where they solve human problems and meet dire needs in their communities, nations, continent and the world at large, using Kingdom principles that will draw men to God. It’s a fulfillment of Isaiah 2:2 –
And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
Zion here for the new testament church, refers to the Heavenly presence of God which every true believer has access to according to Hebrews 12:22- 24
But ye are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
Due to divers revelations, visions and ideas that God will be releasing to His Sons and daughters, they will arise as saviours in their various fields of endeavour. Prophet Obadiah, in Obadiah 1:12 prophesied saying…
And saviours shall come up on Mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’s. Obadiah 1:12 (KJV)
The saviours are you and I. Jesus was sent the Saviour of our world and He declared, “As My Father hath sent me, so send I you“. Jesus Christ also called us the light of the world and the salt of the earth. I am convinced that this is the light Isaiah speaks about Isaiah 60:1-3 – Shinning our light amidst the darkness the world is facing.
What is most important in this call is not our physical gathering but a commitment to be in the league of believers praying and interceding for this move.
This is the greatest of times for the church despite being the darkest of times for the world at large. Just like individuals, nations that will genuinely engage and sponsor the spread of the gospel will largely partake of this Glory that the church will be radiating, while nations that oppose or adopt policies to fight the gospel will be doing it to their own detriment.
Like my pastor Dr. David Oyedepo declared, the ark of the gospel has shifted base to Africa with Nigeria playing a great role in this. It is not our making but a matter of election by grace. This is actually one major reason the devil is striking hard at Nigeria from all angles – her unity, peace, economy, religious atmosphere, politics etc. But we must prevail in the place of prayer because prophecies don’t fulfill themselves most times. They are prayed into fulfillment by wise watchers – watchmen who understand times and seasons.
1 Tim 1:18
This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;
So, prophecies notwithstanding, are tools with which we war a good warfare in the place of prayer to see them fulfilled. It is good to know that when God chose to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, he used men who understood His mission and stood in the gap to pray it down. God has always been and is still in the business of recruiting men that stand in the gap to watch and pray down prophecies, understanding times and seasons.
This move will require men and women of the Spirit – an Elijah generation, as Johnny Enlow explained in His book. People who will challenge the status quo in business, politics, education, media and so on. It takes the Spirit of God to birth these visions for companies that will be springing forth for instance. A result of the outpour of God’s Spirit in this last days, among others will be new “visions” springing up among the youth (Joel 2:28). These must be men upon which God will pour out His Spirit however, in the secret place.
Hence the call to pray. So, this project is a call on every believer of understanding to consciously rise to the occasion as we pray down God’s move especially for the destiny of Nigeria, my home country, into fulfillment. In the place of prayer, I believe visions will be birthed, dream companies will start emerging. Humanitarian solutions to problems in our communities will start brewing inside of us.
This ark as my pastor rightly pointed out from scriptures, will be responsible for a soon emergence of christian giants in Industry, Economy, Politics and the likes as it did years ago in the West when they bore this ark. And I believe, it is time for believers (especially the younger generation) to prepare themselves for this massive move of God in Nigeria.
I have taken time to give this short exposition so as to bring us to an understanding of what we are praying for. I enjoin you please in your daily prayers to join me raise an altar as we pary down this move of GOd. If you can’t do it daily, choose a day of the week to pray for this. It could be for just 30 minutes a day. To also aid in our intercession, we shall circulate a prayer focus from time to time to give some sense of direction to our prayers. If you are set to enroll in this project, please click here to subscribe
With this understanding, make out time daily to pray for our nation and the church at large.
I enjoin you also to be a part of “WiseWatchers Online Community” site at http://www.wisewatchers.org where we are trying to foster an online community of Christians with a goal to birth God’s Kingdom on earth using their careers and businesses as ministry. Posts and articles on this topic are welcome. It’s aimed at bringing together believers who want to maximize their lives on earth by pursuing their God-given dreams while yet adding value to the Kingdom and living heaven bound.
God bless you, and never forget to invest your life daily living on purpose!
