Please pray!! Attacks on Harvest Prayer Ministries and PrayerConnect websites

The following two e-mails are from Jonathan Graf regarding a cyber-attack on several websites, including Harvest Prayer Ministries and PrayerConnect.  The sites have been restored at this point but there are still some issues.  Rather than explain further, I'm posting Jonathan's e-mails (with his permission) below.  Please pray!  There is certainly an element of spiritual warfare here.  Please pray as God leads.

Websites Down and Spiritual Warfare Needed
 

Many of you may have noticed, but four of the websites our ministries maintains have all been taken down ultimately by cyber attack. For the past 33 hours these sites have been unavailable.

We need our supporters to join us in praying for our web company (North of Wonderful) and our contact there, Darren Starr, who is working feverishly to restore them. This company is the middle man in what happened. A major American company who provides servers for websites experienced a major attack a month ago. A hacker took many of its sites down for close to 24 hours. The hacker was able to do permanent damage to the hard drive of the server our sites were on. The company was able to get sites back up at that time, but knew it had to get the data onto new hard drives soon. Wednesday night it attempted to transfer the sites to a new drive, and everything came crashing down. Now 32 hours later it still is not fixed.

 

Our web company is a small fish in their large pond, so we are not at the top of their list of things to fix right away. Currently Darren is both working with them to fix things there, but is also working to get up sites (and the other dozens of sites North of Wonderful manages) up on another server. But there is something interesting going on that Darren (a believer) alerted me to -- the secular sites they manage all came back up, but none of the Christian sites. Sounds like warfare to us!!

 

Would you take a moment and pray:

 

For protection . . . and peace . . . for Darren and North of Wonderful.

 

For wisdom and insight to get things fixed so the sites can be live again.

 

Pray whatever the Holy Spirit prompts you to pray. We recommend praying out of

Psalm 46

 

 For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth. A song.

1 God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging.

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
    God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
    he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

7 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Thank you, for lifting this up on our behalf. We are trusting the Lord, that these sites will be up very soon. And we will now be adding protection of technology to our ongoing prayer concerns! Please feel free to email me (jong@harvestprayer.com) if you have further questions, or if the Lord speaks something to you on our behalf.

  

Blessings,

=====================================

Prayers Answered in Very Short Time
            

Praise the Lord! Our websites were mostly restored within minutes of the first email being sent out. I received many emails from those who said they were praying. We praise God for your response and for His answer to the prayers that were raised.

 

There are two more things related to this situation that you can be praying tonight. Because of the original hack in late January, all websites had to be restored to a date that was previous to January 24th. That means that a number of pages of content did not get restored.

 

Also affected was our daily devotional Connection. Though not housed on our site, its url is somehow connected to the site. It has not been restored yet. We are trying to figure out what we need to do to bring it up live once more.

 

Our web rep--Darren--will be updating our sites overnight to restore the newest material. Pray that it goes smoothly, restoring both the newest content, and that it not cause any other complications. Pray also that this update would somehow fix the daily devotions site and feed so we do not have to spend more time trying to figure this all out!

 

We deeply appreciate you. Thanks for praying!
