Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!"
He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
The men were amazed and asked, "What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!"
- Matthew 8:23-27
Jesus just did something that man does not do, he rebuked the weather and the weather obeyed Him.
Jesus prayed - He rebuked and the weather and there was complete calm. This storm was not from God, if it was from God then Jesus would not have rebuked it. Jesus rebuked this storm so we can only conclude that the storm was from the devil.
Jesus' reputation increased among the disciples because of what He just did. Pray for an increase of storm stopping prayer all over the Arabian Peninsula. Pray that Christians will learn to see when the devil is in the storm and when they need to pray and rebuke Satan's work. Pray that the peoples of the AP would see the power of prayer in the name of Jesus, and come to know Him.
Pray that as Christians pray and seek God, they will show faith and grow deeper in their faith.
