“Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen on your walls; they will never be silent, day or night. There is no rest for you, who remind the Lord. Do not give Him rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem the praise of the earth.”Isaiah 62:6-8
I pray for the watchmen, Lord. I pray for all those You have called to stand on the wall of their home, their church, their city, their nation. I lift up all who have heard the call to pray, who have had an increased desire for prayer, and an increase in the Word of God burning within them. Gather us up, Lord. Set us upon our walls and teach us to pray. Give us discernment, eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit is saying.
Father, whatever has silenced Your people, I pray You will break it off of us. May what has muzzled our prayer lives perish in the name of Jesus. I pray that a sound will begin to rise from Your Church, the sound of declaration, the sound of intercession, the sound of the watchmen who take no rest, and give no rest.
I pray that ceaseless prayer would begin to rise from the earth. May we humble ourselves before You, seek Your face and pray, and stand in the gap on behalf of the land. Oh Lord, call us to turn from our fear, our anger, and our disunity, and cry out for mercy upon a sinful nation.
I pray for faith in prayer, Lord, for faith to rise up and compel us to give no rest to our God, for we know that You hear us, we know that You will answer us.
“And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people.”Revelation 5:8
Let prayer begin to rise like incense from Your people. I pray for full bowls, Lord, full bowls! Call the watchmen. Show us our wall and strengthen us to stand and pray.
In the beautiful Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
