(Travail In Prayer For The Nations)

TO THE BIBLE: Psalm 2:8
“Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.”

The Message translation of our opening verse says, “What do you want? Name it: Nations as a present? Continents as a prize?” I first came across this verse when I was fifteen years old, and I prayed to the Lord according to this scripture.

In response, the Spirit of the Lord said to me, “I’ve given you the nations!” At that tender age, I was concerned about unbelievers living in spiritual darkness, estranged from the life of God, hopeless, and without God in the world.

So, I got a globe, and many times, I placed my hands on it, speaking and prophesying over the nations of the world and over men’s lives. I travailed in prayer for the needy people of the world. I prayed and cried before the Lord for the nations of the world! Ever since that time, many years ago, I knew that not one nation could shut its doors against me.

Today, the Lord is doing many great things through us in the nations of the world. When He says, “Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance,” He’s talking about the souls of men, impacting them with the Gospel and the righteousness of God.

That’s what the apostles did, and it’s what we must do today. And nothing can stop us. When Paul preached the Word in Ephesus, there was a lot of resistance, of course, but it wasn’t enough to stop the work of the Gospel.

The Bible says, “So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed” (Acts 19:20). The key to this kind of result is travailing in prayer. So travail in prayer for your nation, your city, your neighbourhood, your school, etc., and surely, the Word of God will grow mightily therein and prevail. Hallelujah!

Dear Father, your love compels me to intercede in heartfelt prayers and to preach the Gospel to the lost, bringing them out of darkness into your marvellous light. The Word prevails in my city, my nation, and around the world, and the Name of the Lord is glorified. Amen.
