Prayer Points for April 2023
Here is the prayer points for April 2023. To read the introduction to 12 Days prophetic prayer and fasting, please GO HERE
Ezra 8:22 (NLT) “For I was ashamed to ask the king for soldiers and horsemen to accompany us and protect us from enemies along the way. After all, we had told the king, “Our God’s hand of protection is on all who worship him, but his fierce anger rages against those who abandon him.” 23. So, we fasted and earnestly prayed that our God would take care of us, and he heard our prayer.”
God’s Hand of Protection
There is a God’s hand of protection, that secures His people from evil and the activities of the enemy. God’s hand of protection protects better than thousands of king’s soldiers and horsemen. We will always need His hand of protection everyday of our lives.
God is more than enough to protect, defend, and preserve, those who trust in His protective hand. The devil may roam about, roaring like a lion, seeking whom to devour, but the Lord our God neither sleeps nor slumbers, so anything in His hand is secured. This is what Jesus said, about the people under the protective hand of God, “My Father, who has given [them] to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand, (John 10:29).
God is greater than all, so no one can snatch anything from His protective hand. Whatever is committed into the protective hand of God is secured, untouchable, and unstoppable by the enemy.
However, coming under the protective hand of God, means more than security from evil, it includes enjoying God’s affectionate attention and care. God takes care of us when we come under His protective hand. Ezra said, we fasted and earnestly prayed that our God would care for us, and He heard our prayer. God has not stopped accepting and responding to requests for protection for His people.
For this reason, we are entreating and engaging the hand of the Lord for protection for April, and the whole of 2023.
