CRY OUT
FOR THE NATIONS​

91x91

Pray Psalm 91 every day for 91 days
on behalf of our Communities, Cities and Countries.

From March 29th - June 28th​

An Invitation to Intercede

As we are facing the Coronavirus contagion in countries around the globe, we would love to invite you to pray Psalm 91 every day for 91 days and invite others to do the same. A lot has changed. But the mission of the ekklesia remains the same: to seek the Shalom of our communities and cities, be ambassadors of the good news of the Kingdom of God, while growing in our love of God, love of neighbor and love of ourselves. In your (virtual) family group, “House of Peace” or cell group, you can practice what Christ asked us to do: “to love one another”. It is also an opportunity to love and serve our neighbors, showing them God’s love in very tangible ways. At the same time, let us seek God and intercede for our families, our co-workers, our communities, our cities, and our spiritual, civic, medical, and government leaders.

Praying Psalm 91 every day for 91 days is something a group of Christians in West Africa did during the Ebola outbreak in 2014. Health officials were predicting over 1 million people would die in three months, but, once the crisis was contained, only 11,325 people had died. Many factors contributed to this positive outcome, but fervent prayer was certainly among them.

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we would love to invite you to join us in praying Psalm 91 every day for 91 days. While we don’t believe that the words of this psalm function like a magical incantation, we believe that when we seek God on behalf of our families, communities and cities, God will hear us. Let us fix our eyes on God, love our neighbors, witness the hope we have and intercede for our people! Already more than 100 churches and Christian organizations have joined this time of intercession during the next three months. Below you will find the list of moral sponsors of the 91×91 intercession campaign.

So, for the next 91 days, let us cry out for the end of the virus and for the healing of the sick. Let us intercede for those around us to know our God of Shalom and feel His power and love when they least expect it. Let us pray that we ourselves will grow in love for God, for our neighbors and for ourselves. Let us pray that government, civic and church leaders would have vision and hope to courageously serve their communities with generosity, and kindness in midst of this crisis. Let us pray that God’s people will humble themselves, seek God’s face, turn from their misguided ways, so that God may forgive their sins and heal the land.

Guide to Pray
Psalm 91

What follows is an easy-to-follow and practical guide to pray Psalm 91 every day for 91 days.

Step 1: Calm your Mind

If you can, put on some quiet music to calm your mind and spirit and enter into God’s presence. You’ll find a lot of wonderful instrumental worship music on the following youtube channel:

Step 2: Open yourself to God’s Presence

Pray the following prayer to begin your time with God:

“Dear Father. Your Word says that You answer people when they call on Your name, and that You deliver them. During this Coronavirus pandemic, we have committed to praying Psalm 91 every day for 91 days, believing that you will answer the promises from your Word and heal our land."

Step 3: Pray Psalm 91 on Behalf of Others

“Loving Father. As we meditate on Psalm 91, we cry out these words, not only for ourselves, but on behalf of our families, co-workers, neighbors, leaders, communities and cities.”

1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

2 This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.

3 For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease.

4 He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day.

6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.

7 Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.

8 Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished.

9 If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter,

10 no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.

11 For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go.

12 They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.

13 You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name.

15 When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.

16 I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”

Step 4: Bring Any Additional Prayer Requests to God

Here are some additional ideas to pray for. Choose one or two additional prayer requests each day, and implore God on behalf of those around you, your city, your nation and our world.
Nothing is impossible for God!

1. Pray for the end of the virus; that the epidemic will subside and that a cure will be found soon.

2. Pray for healing of those sick; that the number of infected and sick people will decrease.

3. Pray that God be near the suffering, those in need of care, and especially the dying.

4. Pray for all those who are in panic, feel lonely, have no one at their side or are overwhelmed by fear; that they may experience God’s calming presence

5.  Pray for all those who are suffering economically and don’t know how to make ends meet; that God would provide.

6. Pray for the families, women and children who suffer violence in their homes; that God would protect them and intervene.

7. Pray that the epidemic of violence in our fragile cities will not get worse and that God would protect the vulnerable.

8. Pray for the doctors, nurses and health personnel, who are trying to care for the sick and stop the virus; that God would strengthen their resolve, honor their hard work and safeguard them.

9. Pray that God may use you to bless your neighbors with words of encouragement and practical help, so they may get to know and grow in their relationship to our God of Shalom and feel His power and love when they least expect it.

10. Pray for the civic, community and church leaders in your community and city, that they would have vision and hope to courageously serve their communities with generosity and kindness in midst of this crisis

11. Pray for the churches, home groups and “Houses of Peace” in your community and city, that they may be salt and light and practically love their neighbors, particularly those who are sick, vulnerable and in economic distress.

12. Pray for the government leaders in your city, state and nation; for them to show wisdom, discernment and political will to make the correct decisions.

13. Pray that God would redeem this crisis, that His name would be glorified through this pandemic, and that more people would turn to Him; also that you yourself would learn to love Him more, love your neighbor more, and love yourself more.

 

 

Finally, ask yourself: How can I be part of God’s answer to these prayers?

Step 5: End with a Prayer of Thanksgiving

End this short time of prayer with thanksgiving acknowledging our God who loves us:

“Our God and Father. Thank you for inviting us to form part of your mission to spread Shalom to those around us. Whether Your healing comes today, next week, or next month, we believe that You will heal our world. Make us grateful for every day we are in good health. Let us never forget that our life is a fragile gift. Yes, we are mortal beings and cannot control everything. You alone are the source and goal of everything, You alone are eternal, always loving.

 

 

Sustained by Your deep peace we know that we will overcome the crisis and that death does not have the last word. Jesus, Lord and brother of all people, Your presence dispels all fears, it gives confidence and makes our hearts ready to be open and attentive to one another. We thank You for Your presence, Your love and Your goodness.[2] We will continue to praise You and join you in your mission to restore your Shalom to this world, even as we wait for answers. We know that, in the future, when we look back, we will be filled with joy as we remember the renewal, hope and peace that came out of this season.”

 

 

AMEN.
