444 Prayer Initiative
The world has truly gone insane! Here’s a good video explaining how it happened:
And it doesn’t look like things are going to get better anytime soon… unless this Scripture is true:
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
What if we can turn this all around? My proposal:
Everyday at 4:44pm – in whatever time zone you live – pray for at least 4 minutes against the evils of this world.
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
It’s time to do some serious Spiritual Warfare! If we do what I’m proposing here, it will mean every hour, somewhere on Earth, people will be praying in unity against the evils of their town, their state/region, country and the world.
Why 444? For many years I was seeing triple digits everywhere I looked. It finally caused me to research the meanings of the numbers I was seeing. It’s been over ten years since I did this, so I apologize for not having the resources readily available to show you. If I find them in my computer archives, I’ll post them here [UPDATE: I found some of the research I had done back in 2010 – CLICK HERE to view]. In the meantime, I remember 444 to represent “God at work in the Earth through His Covenant people.” So, that’s why I have chosen this time for us to launch our Spiritual Warfare campaign.
CLICK HERE for another on-line resource I recently found concerning numbers and the Bible [NOTE: I have not gone through all of it, so I cannot personally endorse it]. Therefore, I’m only presenting it here for your prayerful consideration. Of course I realize Strong’s Concordance is not Scripture and it didn’t even exist until long after the Bible was written, but I do find it kind of cool to consider also this Greek reference, labeled as Strong’s #4444:
So, let’s set up a “fortified tower” to repel the hostile attacks of the Enemy! For additional inspiration to help you understand Spiritual Warfare and how prayer works, you may enjoy listening to Frank Peretti doing a dramatic reading of the abridged version of his book, This Present Darkness:
For another resource to help you understand how the demonic world operates, consider The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis:
Let’s do this! Spread the word and set your alarm for 4:44pm everyday. Let’s put aside whatever petty differences we may have and come together in UNITY to pray against the evils of this world to see if we can turn things around for the better in the countries in which we live.
