VENEZUELA – Great Crisis
Isaiah 41:29 ” Behold, they are all vanity; their works are nothing: their molten images are wind and confusion.”
President and leaders have no concern for their people. Food and medicine not available in Country. Two million have fled to Colombia. U.S. agencies now have plane loads and truck loads of relief and the president will not let it into his country. Several truck loads that attempted have been burned.
I. Pray that Ungodly and Tyrannical Leaders Will Fall by Receiving Unsound Advice.
Psalms 5:10. “Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.”
We have every right to pray for the downfall of an ego-mad leader directing a nation away from God and killing thousands of people. We can pray that the snares they have set for others will in turn be used against them.
II. Pray that Unjust Leaders Will Make Mistakes that Will Benefit the Gospel.
Psalms 109:29 “Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.”
We can pray for their failure in all that they do. We can pray that they will be clothed in disgrace.
III. Pray that Leaders in Troubled Nations Will Grow Weary and Tired of the Continuing Bloodshed in Their Lands.
Jeremiah 29:7 “And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the Lord for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.”
IV. Pray that Corrupt Leaders Will Recognize Their Evil Ways and Turn to God.
II Chronicles 33:11-13
11 Wherefore the Lord brought upon them the captains of the host of the king of Assyria, which took Manasseh among the thorns, and bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon.
12 And when he was in affliction, he besought the Lord his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers,
13 And prayed unto him: and he was intreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord he was God.
