Happy New Year Watchmen!!! Beginning January 1, 2024 we have been led to begin praying for the nations. This is the 4th addition to the PPV Prayer Guide since we were led to begin the Perpetual Prayer Vigil on January 1, 2019. We will have one nation each month as a prayer target. Each month you will receive the name of the leader of the nation and specific prayer targets for the nation in our monthly PPV blog. As always, please remember you have the liberty to be led by our Holy Spirit during your prayer time for the nations. Our monthly prayers will be based on the following scriptures: 1 Timothy 2:1, 2…..Matthew 28:18-20…. Matthew 24:14
These are the general prayer targets for the nations every day, in the mighty name of Jesus:
1. Father God, we ask for OPEN HANDS to minister the gospel (Proverbs 2:20)
2. Father God, we ask for OPEN DOORS to spread the gospel (Colossians 4:2,3)
3. Father God, we ask for OPEN MINDS to receive the gospel (Acts 26:17,18)
4. Father God, we ask for OPEN HEARTS to embrace the gospel (2 Corinthians 4:6)
5. Father God, we ask for OPEN HEAVENS so the gospel will transform nations(Isaiah 45:8)
For the month of January, our first nation to pray for is Ghana.
Specific Prayers for Ghana
1. Ghana is a predominantly Christian nation (over 65%.) It operates generally in peace while being surrounded by nations who experience great unrest and persecution. Pray that the peace of God will continue to dominate this nation and spread to its surrounding neighbors by the power of the Holy Spirit.
2. Pray that the President of Ghana and those in authority will govern with righteousness, mercy and Godly Wisdom and avoid any ungodly influences(ie., humanism, spiritualism, occult practices,etc).
3. Pray that the Christian population in Ghana will begin to be discipled by mature Christian leaders in the Body of Christ. This discipleship movement will not only impact Ghana but also the surrounding nations in Western Africa and eventually the entire continent in the mighty name of Jesus.

Watchmen's Reflection (feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section located at the bottom of this page.)
As watchmen we often focus on prayer, but another important focal point for watchmen is the Word of God. Do you read, meditate, and pray, the word regularly?
Don't forget to include the nation of Ghana in your prayer time this month.

After a cruel attack on the life of a young man on the parking lot of Calvary Bible Church in Florissant, MO a committed group of pastors decided to come together to Pray and stand against the attacks of the enemy on our city, state, country, and world. We believe this monthly gathering is evidence of the prayers that have been going forth in out city to "tear down wickedness, raise up righteousness, and bring healing to our land." As believers we have the spiritual authority and faith filled prayer is a God ordained way for us to exercise that authority. In support of this prayer gathering please join us as "we pray heaven to earth" (Matthew 6:10).
