Bow Low before Our Risen King as we intercede for the Lives of the Unborn of Our Nation.
“Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.
We are in a war and right now as the battle rages for the ‘yet to be born’ of Australia – today we battle on our knees as we humble ourselves before our King. We worship Him for He is worthy!
We are looking for the Lord to fight this battle for us like in 2 Chronicles 20. They had positioned themselves to seek the Lord and pray.
“… We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.” (V 12)
We too are positioned right now before the Lord to listen to what He is saying. The Holy Spirit is in us speaking to us and through His Word, and prophetically through others.
It is vital in any battle to hear what the Commander of the Army of the Host of Heaven, Jehovah Sabaoth, is saying. He told them:
“Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged … for the battle is not yours, but God’s… you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord’s victory. He is with you …Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the Lord is with you!” (v15 & 17 TLT)
The Lord’s voice always calms the storm inside us!
In the body of Christ right now, one big enemy is fear, as death and destruction ramps even higher in these latest abortion bills and religious freedom is threatened. This seems incomprehensible to lovers of God as legislation and bills being presented carry death and destruction, decimating future generations. We see King Jehoshaphat’s immediate response:
“Then King Jehoshaphat bowed low with his face to the ground. And all the people … did the same, worshiping the Lord.” (v18)
We also respond today to bow low and worship the Lord!
Even our King Jesus Christ bowed low before the Greatest Battle for Our Lives.
Jesus bowed to the lowest place as He suffered in Gethsemane, enduring the cross. He gave up His life for humanity and descended into hell taking our death and punishment for us.
“And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.”
~ Philippians 2:8
He overcame the grave, was resurrected, and ascended.
We do not undertake this battle alone, but we are positioned in Christ:
“And He raised us up together with Him [when we believed], and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, [because we are] in Christ Jesus.”
~ Ephesians 4:6 AMP
Prayer: Thank you, Father for giving us Your son. Lord Jesus, we thank You that You still fight for us, especially now as this battle rages for yet-to-be-born Australians. Today we bow low in adoration and worship. And we say You are worthy of all praise, all glory and all honour. We lay all fear and disappointment at the foot of the cross. Thank You that we are seated in heavenly places ‘in You’, where we have authority as the Ecclesia to say we will not allow abortion, because it is not in Heaven. Fight these Abortion bills for us, Lord. We ask you release the right people in the right places at the right time, bringing your truth to bring a shift in the minds of our politicians and those pushing this agenda. In the powerful and precious name of Jesus. Amen
FAST + PRAY = LIFE
Today we stand together ‘as one’ in prayer and fasting to ask the Lord:
To Stop the proposed Abortion Reform Bill in South Australia.
To Stop the New South Wales Abortion Bill.
For Abortion to be pushed back and eventually stopped in every state and territory in Australia!
Further Prayer Points:
- Lord, You paid such a high price to redeem humanity; we ask You to equip Your church to stop the mass destruction of the unborn.
- Increase awareness Lord, to the truth of the sanctity of Life in our nation.
- Even today as we humble ourselves and bow low, fight our enemies.
- Give dreams, visions and Damascus road encounters to stop the Abortions in Australia.
- Shift our cultural thinking from death to life, from self to You, from world to Kingdom.
Spend time today listening to our Father — hear what is on His heart concerning abortion in our nation.
