September Prayer Issues. 2 Corinth 1:20. ‘For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ.’

(An interpretation of) Isaiah 62v6-7a: I have set intercessors on your walls who shall cry out to God for the fulfilment of his promises.’

NB. We hold a main weekly IFC prayer group in Larnaca every Friday 9am-noon and others weekly e.g. Prayer for Israel, Ministries & Refugees, at other times. Details: Email the above. Use the Prayer update in your home group, prayer group, church prayers, and devotionals. Use it topically or work through it over the month. 

 

^  GIVING THANKS:  1 Thessalonians 5:18. ‘In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.’

Police activity: The police are a great deterrent, often capturing offenders. Recent activity has been seeking out missing persons, arresting drunk drivers and car stealers, restraining night activity, capturing drug dealers & kidnappers. Give thanks for the police and pray for them (Rom.13v1-4).

 

 

^ EDITORIAL: 2 Timothy 2v15: ‘Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who….correctly handles the word of truth.’

Churches in Cyprus: Many inter-churches prayer and other across-churches gatherings seem to have wound down – except for online wider networks - as people wait for things to return to normal, which may not happen. It would seem that a second round of CV is approaching, and that things will not be 'normal' in the foreseeable future. It is good to hear how some church and ministry leaders are recognizing this. Pastors particularly in each area or city, could find out how each other are doing during this season. Perhaps they could find out what God is showing other leaders to facilitate the worship of God, the meeting together of their people, the use of online ideas and meeting the needs of their people? It would be good to share ideas either in person or via a Zoom meeting if one church leader would co-ordinate. The same is true for any across-Cyprus leader gathering / online opportunity.

   The temptation is for churches to go back to the old ways, pre Coronavirus, but God wants to prepare His Church for these coming days to be flexible, with His new wine poured into new wineskins: Matthew 9:17 (NIV) …”Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved."  Luke 5:39 (NIV) “…And no-one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says, 'The old is better.' "  Church leaders will need to let go of that which would hinder….the old.   

    Church premises may become less relevant in the future, and the place of fellowship could be the small groups, either informal in homes and in sharing, fun, socials, parties while they can be held, and more formally in the house groups for teaching, discipling, communion & meals, and prayer, whether on Zoom or in situ. Acts 2:42 (NIV) ‘They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.’ Incidentally, prayer can go to weekly instead of monthly across the church via Zoom, or from weekly to daily….the sky is the limit. Online courses like Alpha could be a blessing, too, for discipling and outreach:  

Sundays: Another useful small group scenario is for people to invite a few people from their church to join them in their home on a Sunday to watch the online service together, interact and discuss, and share food & fellowship together either in the home or go out to lunch together.  

If church leadership is willing to trust and invest in a growing number of small groups of say, 6+, then not only will they be growing leaders but also laying the foundation for multiplication rather than maintenance. Monthly oversight meetings for all home group leaders to attend (Zoom or in person), invests in them and ensures they are carrying the vision. Pray that church leaders, pastors and elders, consider such issues before God.

 

A quote: from Worldwide Glory Network Alliance: (relevant to Cyprus churches): ‘During this critical hour, Prayer Houses cannot stand alone to push back the works of the enemy. We need to stand together as ONE to demolish the works of the enemy against Europe and the world because many of the challenges we face these days are global in nature. EG. 1) The global pestilence that is Covid-19; 2) The locust plague which began in Africa which has spread to Asia and South America; 3) The rioting and looting which began in America that has spread to many nations in the world; 4) The One World Concert is a global event that is telecasted all over the nations of the world; 5) The recent Luciferian March conducted in different nations on 21/6/20 is a global movement that supports the New World Order; and 6) Global Pride Celebration is globally telecast 24 hours over the nations in the world.’ (NB. Purpose of WGNA: ‘To offer unceasing prayer and worship to give endless pleasure to the King of Kings. To provide a canopy of God’s glory to protect His people in the end times. To release the outpouring of the Holy Spirit to usher in great revival in the end times.’

For thought: (Extract from Watchmen in Jerusalem): ‘A time is coming when the Jews will very much want to return to Israel from their homes in exile, but will be stopped from leaving. This will happen suddenly and at the last moment….leaving Jews feeling helpless, hopeless, trapped and not knowing what to do next. Yet there is hope for God's people even in that situation. It will be their gentile friends and neighbors in the Body of Messiah who understand how vital it is for the Jewish people to return home. It is all about His coming kingdom and His will being done on earth as it is in Heaven. His servants will arise and do! There will be gentile believers who will drop their own plans and help the Jews in whatever way is needed – know-how, finances, transportation, even meals, and of course, prayer – lots and lots of prayer. The hope for the Jews who will be trapped in exile rests with the gentile members of the Body of Messiah. Biblically this is the Christians' obligation to the people from whom their Saviour came.’

 

 

^ THE CHURCH:   Matthew 16:18. ‘I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.’

Here are specific requests for prayer or news of what God is doing in Cyprus, in Cypriots, and in the lives of His people in the area.

1. Specific Churches and Ministries: Revelation 1v11: "Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches…”

a) Evangelical Alliance, Cyprus: has submitted an application to the Ministry of Education in cooperation with Eastern European Mission, for approval of the Bible for children. The purpose of the application is to approve the free delivery of the illustrated Bible for children in all the Elementary Schools of Cyprus. An approval will open a big door in schools and in the society of Cyprus in general to deliver more Bibles in the future for older ages.

We ask for your prayers because above all the goal is to help increase the knowledge of the Word of God and at the same time to encourage the development of the Christian faith and moral values. The examination of the application will take 1-2 months. Please pray for success (2 Tim 3v16).

 

b) ‘BURN 24/7’ Mediterranean Project:12-18 September 2020, Gozo, Malta.  144 hours of non-stop praise, worship & intercession for the Mediterranean Basin, including fellowship & meals. 6 teams overlapping, ending with a Rosh Hashana (feats of Tabernacles) party. House of Prayer Gozo, Malta. Beds available for those short of finances if can prove flight booking. More details: info@vled.fr  Pray that this event will be adjusted according to the Covid-19 situation at that time, and that it will glorify God. Remember YWAM and the houses of prayer in Cyprus also (Neh 12v27-28; Isaiah 56v7).

c) From a prayer partner: Please remember in prayer, ‘Leni who is going for cancerous tumour operation on the back of his neck Sept 4. Praying that the tumour will disappear (already he had radiation). In Jesus name amen.’ Pray for Leni and against the enemy (Psalm 42v11; Matthew 4v24).

d) Also from a prayer partner:  International media report that fourteen Ukrainian surrogate mothers left babies behind in the north of Cyprus because of Coronavirus issues as agencies from Ukraine set up shop in legal grey-areas and shoddy, make-shift hospitals in Famagusta area. After giving birth, the woman is required to renounce her legal rights on the child, opening the way for the genetic parents to adopt it. They said they were forced to undergo C-sections despite some preferring to give birth naturally. Their agency called them ‘cattle’. Many of the babies born however are now in a legal limbo as surrogate mothers could not sign them off due to Covid19. Pray for those involved in this and for a way forward (Ps. 139; Isaiah 11v1).  

 

2. Lebanon churches: We have had reports from Lebanon through Teresa C and Homer L concerning the explosion last month and the situation there. A useful link is https://youtu.be/8pH1MVk5Wi8  Lebanon is in a mess economically and socially. Terrorist group Hizbollah is wrecking the country! One church group we heard of through Teresa has been working to help people in need after the explosion. ‘Many of you are asking me of ways to give. Please visit our website and you will find all information in the donate button. You can choose to pay using PayPal, or directly to our bank account in Lebanon or using Trust bridge global for tax return.’  www.tm-lebanon.com  Pray for the church & nation of Lebanon (Hab 2v17; Job 14v7).  

 

3. Online Alpha: The Alpha Course was designed to reach neighbours, friends, colleagues, etc., with the gospel through a regular meal, a talk and discussion groups including a day away for ministry. God has blessed the course and many have become believers through this. It has spread to over 100 countries, but during Covid-19 it is not able to function in the same way. So, an Online option has been prepared as well as normal Alpha, including a Youth Alpha course online. We are looking into the possibility of running Alpha Online in Larnaca as a pilot. If all is agreed locally, then team training could begin in later September and the course from the beginning of October. Please pray for the right church backing and for a dedicated team to be brought together to serve in this way, ideally including a Youth team. Source info for Alpha online: www.alpha.org.uk  

Alpha Film Series on YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBMMD5C0k-s  and following. Pray God's purposes for Online Alpha and Youth Alpha Online during Covid-19  (Isaiah 46v10).


4. Global Repentance movement: We have been involved in several of these days during July and August, which focus on personal repentance, but also includes other areas such as nations needing to get right with God. Pray God uses such groups. Worth checking out. www.globalrepent.com   

 

5. Passivity: Are you in a comfortable lethargy, accepting the Covid19 situation to allow for inactivity? Waiting for the storm to pass? You are in danger.

Maybe the storm will not pass quickly, maybe life will become even more challenging. Churches are also having to consider whether to obey man or God on Sundays!  Jeremiah 12v5: "If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?” Pray that you and your church remain on the alert spiritually and practically even during the warm weather and during Covid-19. (1 Thessalonians 5v6; 1 Peter 5v8; Ephesians 6v18).

   

6. Mary. A bible study on Mary and Jesus’ family has been passed on to us. If interested to see, email us at iforcy@outlook.com

 

ITI: At this time of year, Jews will have remembered the two historic calamities of exile and temple destruction along with many others, including their slaughter during the First Crusade; the expulsions from England, France and Spain; and the 20th Century Holocaust. Their greatest enemies were the Church and anti-Semitism. No wonder they do not trust the church. Pray for positive change (Psalm 137). The Israeli flag was displayed for the first time at the Temple Mount since Israel conquered its holiest site in the 1967 Six-Day War.  Aliyah: Now is the time to bring back tens of thousands of Israelis who are currently working in the United States, Shas MK Moshe Arbel said earlier this month when he learned that US President Donald Trump has suspended new work visas and blocked the renewal of H-1B visas for skilled hi-tech workers until the end of the year. “Israel must not miss out on this great growth-engine," Derech Eretz MK Zvi Hauser said. “This could really pull us forward for the next 25 years.” This is another opportunity for American Jews to return to Israel. 50,000 are also planning to return from France.  Pray as led (Hosea 11v10).

 

 

^ THE GOVERNMENT & those in authority:  1 Timothy 2v1-4:  1 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Saviour, 4 who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

RoCy: Pray for godly wisdom for our president, Nicos Anastasiades & his wife Andri; Cabinet Ministers & the Secretary to the Cabinet; Government Spokesman; Pray for our government & opposition parties, and also for our Archbishop Chrysostomos ll. Pray for the current president of the Evangelical Alliance of Churches in Cyprus, Yiannos  and E.A. secretary Chrysso. Pray also for key leaders in the North: Underground church leaders; leader of Turkish Cypriot Community Mr Mustafa Akinci;  Prime Minister: Ersin Tatar; Deputy Prime Minister & Minister of Foreign Affairs: Kudret Özersay;  and other Ministers.(Also for President Erdogan of Turkey).    

 

^ This month: Covid-19: The coronavirus pandemic has emptied public coffers and the government is getting ready to end support plans for thousands of employees and businesses hit hard by the prolonged health crisis. The question is what plan B is and how the state moves on from where it is now with rising unemployment and considering that special subsidies are to end in October. Pray for God’s wisdom for the authorities.

There has been a mass detection of coronavirus cases at the Pournara immigrant reception centre in Kokkinotrimithia. Pray for the centre and those living there, and pray for the government, for God’s leading, in order to make the right decisions for the country. Incidentally, We all should be wearing masks and practicing social distancing, and for gatherings the limit is currently 50 people maximum. Not easy for the larger churches!  

Pray that the number of Covid-19 patients in Cyprus will decrease again, (at present the trend is downwards) and that the situation will soon be good enough for the air and land borders to be fully reopened and quarantine to be cancelled. Pray for protection and wisdom for the doctors and nurses and all of the health care workers, that they may know how to help the sick people in the best way. May God speak His word to many today: ‘Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for You are with me; Your rod and staff comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.’ (Ps. 23:4-5). Pray that God’s will may be done in everything concerning the corona situation, and that something good will come out of it. “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.“ (Rom. 8:28)

ALSO: The RoC government is looking to establish 5G network in Cyprus for 70% of the population by 2025. We have concerns about the 5G vision. Pray that God restricts this development unless He will use it in His plans. Cyprus’ trade deficit fell from €1,865.8 million in the first five months of last year to €1,723.6 million in the first five months of this year. Still a big deficit. Pray some at least think to seek God’s help (Psalm 121v1).

 

^ Turkey: The provocations both to Cyprus and the E.U. are regularly noted but little action is taken against Turkey and President Erdogan, with his expansionist plans for Islam. Appeasement will not work. Cyprus, Greece, France and Italy have strengthened their presence in the East Mediterranean recently in response to Turkey’s activities. We need warfare prayer behind the scenes. Pray for desire for this (Matthew 21v22; 2 Corinthians 10v4-6).

 

^ The North: The Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission says that over a number of years, 100 or more Nigerian students have been killed under mysterious circumstances. Nigerian parents are being warned not to send their children to universities in the north of Cyprus. Pray that whatever is going on will be uncovered and correct action taken (Matthew 4v22). NB. Legal inhabitants of Varosha do not object to the UN taking over.

 

^ Health: Covid-19 recurrence requires self-isolation but violations have occurred. Fines or even imprisonment have resulted. Pray about this (Ephesians 6v5-7). PASYDY union is pressuring the government to talk with radiologists over various concerns. Pray for right action by government.

 

 

^ NATIONAL ISSUES:   Psalm 33:12. ‘Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.’

Shipping: The sector needs support as cruise and passenger ships are not able to operate. Ask God to lead into effective decisions (Rom 11v33).

Hotel industry: Praise God that unemployed hotel staff have received an increase in benefits. Pray for future hope (Jeremiah 29v11).

Industry: Output for the first 6 months went up in Cyprus. Pray it continues to grow. Cyprus is going to the EU to register Halloumi. Pray success.   

Police & Fire: 100 new police officers and firefighters have been recruited and trained - amen. Pray they settle well (Titus 2v6-8). Unfortunately, 6 other police officers have been suspended over a corruption case. Pray for justice in the case.    

Arson: This year a mass arson attack on an area between Limassol and Paphos has ruined extensive areas. Pray God restricts these activities.

Public Nuisance: Police are trying to deal with people in the night hours causing nuisance…mainly motorcyclists, those making excessive noise. The government has banned certain areas at certain times to bikers, so now the bikers are protesting! Pray for conviction (1 Thessalonians 1v5).

Buildings: There has been a record drop in building permits. The largest four municipalities in the RoC have discovered violations in building permits. Pray for this to be addressed effectively (Genesis 4v7).

Schools: There are various possible scenarios for the start of schooling, including digital technology, ‘e’ and distance learning, rotation of pupils, etc. Teachers are strongly concerned at government and municipality arrangements for the September commencement, especially in view of social distancing. Pray the best solution is adopted, and the needs of pre-school children be carefully considered (Judges 18v21).

Basic foods: The cost of bread and cereal in Cyprus is the 5th highest in the EU. Pray for the price to come down (Deuteronomy 8v6-9).

Civil Servants: Excessive sick leave has been noted by this group. Pray for conviction of sin (John 16v8).

I.D. cards: New Biometric I.D. cards are being introduced into Cyprus. Again, shades of ‘big brother’, knowing all about you. Pray as led (1 Tim 4v10).

Agriculture: The EU has granted 500,000 euros to Cyprus to support the pig sector during this time of Coronavirus. Amen. (Luke 15v15).  

Al Jazeera: Facts about the ‘Cyprus Papers’ documents are being distorted by this group to undermine the government. Pray protection (Eph 5v11).

 

 

^ MORAL & SOCIAL ISSUES:  Deut 10v4: The Lord wrote on these tablets what he had written before, the Ten Commandments he had proclaimed.

Human Trafficking: Another trafficker has been apprehended, and also a drugs trafficker. Amen! Pray for continued success for police (1 Cor 6v19).

Poverty: The latest report says that 22.3% of the population of Cyprus are ‘at risk of poverty’. Covid wouldn’t have helped. Pray for hope (Matt 19v21).

Gambling: 1% of overall profits from the gambling industry are to be used to help young people addicted to gambling! So, government revenue comes first, then the issue is addressed….upside down thinking. Pray for common sense and insight into the whole issue (1 Timothy 6v9).

Akamas: More and more people are moving out of this area which will be a problem for its future. Pray for a way forward (Judg 18v5 KJV; Phil 3v13).

 

 

^ CITIES & MUNICIPALITIES:  PRAY for your city: Jeremiah 29v7: “Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper." Psalm 55:11.’Destructive forces are at work in the city; threats and lies never leave its streets.’ 

Transforming a city, one neighborhood at a time: Your neighbourhood, town, city, your home, is broken. Sin is robbing where you live of its destiny. It is important to God that we pray. We are honoured to participate in a growing movement uniting the Church in focused prayer for God to be glorified across cities & neighbourhoods. We invite you to join and share this with your churches and communities. We are promoting a period of 40 days of prayer, praying for a new neighborhood of your town, city or location every day. EXAMPLE:  A recently executed and simple plan to profoundly impact Chicago: The status quo in Chicago is unacceptable. Murders. Broken schools. Drugs. Gangs. Homelessness. Poverty. Absentee parents. Corruption. Materialism. Broken government. The list goes on and on. But the most tragic crisis in Chicago is that millions of people are lost without Jesus. From July 29 to September 6, we are going to pray for every square inch of this city. Every 12 hours for 40 days.

Join the prayer campaign for your location: Pray for a different section of your town or city every day. Invite others to join. Go the 40 days!

Other: Larnaca: The port & marina development has at last been agreed involving a Cyprus-Israeli consortium, bringing many jobs. Thank You, Lord!

The oil refinery area will be replaced by tower blocks; water taxis & fast buses will herald trams in the future. Pray for good development (Matt 7v26).

However, the 5 year old agreement of the municipality to lease the second floor of the old hospital has not yet happened. Pray for progress (Ps.15v4).

Paphos: Foreigners are living in illegally converted shops in very squalid conditions - refugees are desperate for housing. Pray for municipality help.

Nicosia: Security levels are being increased in the Old Town following a spate of crimes. Look up Psalm 55v11 & pray accordingly.

All the municipalities: are in dire financial straits with loss of income due to Covid-19 and no government help. Pray for provision (Gen. 45v11).

 

 

^ CARING AND COMPASSION:  (by the Church and others):   Matthew 5v7: Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.’

1. Refugees, asylum seekers & migrant workers...,aliens & strangers: Exodus 22v21: "Do not ill-treat an alien or oppress him, for you were aliens.”

Remember the Oasis Refugee Project as the team restarts the ministry after a short break, but on a limited basis, tailored to Covid-19 issues. Pray for new vision & strength for the team, and for asylum seekers, refugees and their families and other migrants in need (2 Samuel 16v14; Psalm 68v9).  

Remember the people at Pournara emergency reception centre for illegal immigrants in Kokkinotrimithia. It is badly overcrowded because of those coming from the north, and with Covid-19 breaking out is a hazard. Pray for the people there to have change for good (James 1v17).

 

2. The Carers: Remember the ‘carers’ before God today. They may be caring for Covid-19 patients, the elderly, the disabled, sick children, etc. Sometimes the carers need a break and be cared for themselves a while. Pray as led (Psalm 103v8; 1 Peter 3v8).   

 

3. The poor and needy, widows and orphans, foreigners, unemployed, exploited, etc: Proverbs 31v8-9: "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."

Remember in prayer the Mercy Centre in Nicosia, the Limassol group, and the Matthew 25 project in Paphos. Also Cyprus Samaritans, etc. Pray that where churches and ministries or individuals need to speak up for the needy, they are motivated to do so by God’s Spirit (Acts 1v8).

 

 

^ INTERNATIONAL ISSUES: Mark 11v17: "Is it not written:  'My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations?’ “(Also Revelation 14v6.)

Ongoing: Pray against the use of nuclear weapons and chemical weaponry and for Gospel declaration in the Middle East (Matt 16v19).

Lebanon: Lebanon is suffering so much from the terrible explosion of ammonium nitrate last month with so many killed and many after effects. Pray for those bereaved or injured. Cyprus has sent two shiploads of help so far. With the Lebanese government resigning, Lebanon needs righteous leadership and God’s help. The French Foreign Minister has said that Lebanon risks disappearing without a new government and reforms, because international support will not be available without these. Pray for struggling Lebanon and for God’s purposes (Isaiah 1v25-27; Deuteronomy 33v26)

Israel: We would like to ask for your prayers for Yad Vashem. This is the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, located in Jerusalem. We have visited several times. They like so many other tourist and visitor attractions are struggling to continue, and have good online website facilities. Christian.Friends@YadVashem.org.il sends email updates, or through Facebook. Christian Friends of Yad Vashem help.  Explore their website and find a particular resource which interests you? Meanwhile, pray for this memorial to man’s depravity and to God’s faithfulness despite it.’ (Deut. 32v4).

The Bible says that there is an initial conflict between Israel and surrounding peoples i.e. Hamas, Palestinians, Hezbollah and Syria. This conflict will be over Jerusalem. But Israel will win this initial conflict –  Zechariah 12v6 says that “Jerusalem will remain secure”. But into the vacuum that is left (which is perhaps now) will come Russia, Iran and Turkey. With Russia & Iran so involved in Syria and Turkey now active in the Middle East, we can see how they could easily get caught up in this. Pray God’s purpose prevails (Psalm 33v10-11). NB. Zechariah 14 follows in due course!

Bless you all. Yassas,  αντίο  and shalom.   The IFC team

Tuesdays: (9-11am) ITI prayer for Cyprus a safe haven for refugees. Wednesdays: (9-12am) we meet to pray for Israel. Fridays: (9-12am) prayer for Cyprus, including the latest news and using the IFC monthly Cyprus Prayer Update, and being led of the Spirit.  If you would like to join us - as a visitor or more permanently- then email the above to arrange.
