[31 Days of Prayer] Day 13: Prayers for Philippines

Hi all,

I decided to join with Beth Moore and do the 31 Days of Prayer, where we will be praying for 31 days for the month of July. I decided to include my prayers here for each country I am praying for and as the Holy Spirit leads. I pray you will join me.

This is the confidence [I] have before Him: If [I] ask anything according to His will, He hears [me]. And if [I] know that He hears whatever [I] ask [I] know that [I] have what [I] asked of Him.”

1 John 5:14-15, CSB (emphasis mine)

(Using John 13 to guide these prayers)

Father, I pray:

  • That You Lord are melting away the hardness of hearts of people in the Philippines and replacing it with a heart of flesh so that they may accept You Lord Jesus in their hearts
  • That the people of the Philippines would cry out to God with repentant hearts and believe in the Lord Jesus
  • That the Filipino people’s eyes will no longer be blinded to the truth of Jesus and the Gospel, and just as Paul’s eyes were opened on the Damascus road in Acts 9, they will make the decision to chose Christ
  • That those in the Philippines who have opposed the church would respond to the conviction of the Holy Spirit and repent that they may be saved
  • For radical encounters with Christ for the Filipino people
  • That believers in the Philippines would exhibit the same kind of love Jesus did during His ministry on earth–loving to the very end.
  • That the Lord’s goodness and kindness will lead the people of the Philippines to repentance
  • That believers in the Philippines would serve their fellow people in a spirit and posture of humility, just as Jesus did, taking a lowly position and posture
  • That the people of the Philippines will lay aside pride and allow themselves to be washed but the servants of God in their country and to be washed by the Word of God, leading to transformation
  • That those in the Philippines who would betray Jesus by denying that they know Him would be exposed so that they would have an opportunity to repent and turn from their wicked ways
  • That believers in the Philippines are serving one another with a posture of humility and washing their fellow brothers and sisters’ feet
  • That the believers in the Philippines would not consider themselves or take on an attitude of being superior than anyone else, greater than slaves, or think that the messenger is more important than the one who sends the message
  • That many in the Philippines would believe that Jesus is the Messiah, as they welcome His messengers who are sharing the Gospel into their homes and other places
  • That the people of the Philippines would no longer be a vessel for satan to enter into and use for his own plans, but would respond to the Holy Spirit as He draws them to surrender to Jesus
  • That believers in the Philippines would be discerning of those among them and would be able to readily recognize those who have betrayed Jesus in their midst and be led by the Holy Spirit with how to respond them
  • That believers in the Philippines would continue to bring glory to the Lord in how they live amongst their people so others may come to Christ
  • That believers in the Philippines would love each other just as Jesus has loved them in order to show the world and the people in their country that they are disciples of Jesus
  • that believers in the Philippines would release any pride in their hearts similar to what Peter carried, which caused him to make lose that he broke when he denied Jesus
  • That an outpouring of the Holy Spirit would flow throughout the country of the Philippines as the body of believers unite together and worship the Lord boldly and through their actions

In Jesus’ name, I pray. AMEN!

Prayer in Flipino:

Panginoong Hesus nagdadasal ako,

Natutunaw ng Iyong Panginoon ang tigas ng mga puso ng mga tao sa Pilipinas at pinalitan ito ng isang pusong laman upang tanggapin nila Ikaw na Panginoong Jesus sa kanilang mga puso
Na ang mga mamamayan ng Pilipinas ay sumisigaw sa Diyos na may nagsisising puso at naniniwala sa Panginoong Jesus
Na ang mga mata ng mamamayang Pilipino ay hindi na mabubulag sa katotohanan ni Jesus at ng Ebanghelyo, at tulad ng pagbukas ng mga mata ni Paul sa daang Damsyo sa Mga Gawa 9, magpapasya sila na piliin si Kristo
Na ang mga nasa Pilipinas na tutol sa simbahan ay tutugon sa paniniwala ng Banal na Espiritu at magsisi na sila ay maligtas
Para sa mga radikal na pakikipagtagpo kay Kristo para sa sambayanang Pilipino
Na ang mga mananampalataya sa Pilipinas ay magpapakita ng parehong uri ng pagmamahal na ginawa ni Jesus sa panahon ng Kanyang ministeryo sa mundo - mapagmahal hanggang sa wakas.
Na ang kabutihan at kabaitan ng Panginoon ay magdadala sa mga tao sa Pilipinas sa pagsisisi
Na ang mga mananampalataya sa Pilipinas ay maglilingkod sa kanilang mga kapwa tao sa isang diwa at postura ng kababaang-loob, tulad ng ginawa ni Jesus, na kumukuha ng mababang posisyon at pustura.
Na ang mga mamamayan ng Pilipinas ay magtatabi ng pagmamataas at papayagang malabhan ngunit ang mga lingkod ng Diyos sa kanilang bansa at hugasan ng Salita ng Diyos, na humahantong sa pagbabago.
Na ang mga nasa Pilipinas na magtataksil kay Jesus sa pamamagitan ng pagtanggi na alam nila Siya ay malantad upang magkaroon sila ng pagkakataong magsisi at talikuran ang kanilang masasamang pamamaraan
Na ang mga mananampalataya sa Pilipinas ay naglilingkod sa isa't isa na may isang puri ng kababaang-loob at paghuhugas ng paa ng kanilang mga kapatid
Na ang mga mananampalataya sa Pilipinas ay hindi isaalang-alang ang kanilang mga sarili o kumuha sa isang saloobin ng pagiging superior kaysa sa sinumang iba pa, mas malaki kaysa sa mga alipin, o isipin na ang sugo ay mas mahalaga kaysa sa isa kung sino ang nagpapadala ng mensahe
Na ang marami sa Pilipinas ay maniniwala na si Jesus ang Mesiyas, dahil tinatanggap nila ang Kanyang mga messenger na nagbabahagi ng Ebanghelyo sa kanilang mga tahanan at iba pang mga lugar
Na ang mga tao sa Pilipinas ay hindi na magiging sisidlan para kay satanas na pumasok at magamit para sa kanyang sariling mga plano, ngunit tutugon sa Banal na Espiritu habang iginalapit Niya sila na sumuko kay Jesus
Iyon mananampalataya sa Pilipinas ay marunong makita ang kaibhan ng mga kasama ng mga ito at nais na magagawang upang kaagad na makilala ang mga may nagkanulo kay Jesus sa gitna nila at hayaang patnubayan ka ng Espiritu Santo sa kung paano tumugon ang mga ito
Na ang mga naniniwala sa Pilipinas ay magpapatuloy na magdala ng kaluwalhatian sa Panginoon sa kanilang pamumuhay sa gitna ng kanilang mga tao upang ang iba ay lumapit kay Cristo
Na ang mga mananampalataya sa Pilipinas ay magmamahal sa bawat isa tulad ng pagmamahal sa kanila ni Hesus upang maipakita sa mundo at sa mga tao sa kanilang bansa na sila ay mga alagad ni Jesus
na mananampalataya sa Pilipinas ay naglalabas ng anumang pagmamataas sa kanilang mga puso katulad ng kung ano Peter natupad, na naging sanhi sa kanya upang gumawa ng mawalan na siya sinira kapag siya ay tinanggihan si Jesus
Na ang pagbuhos ng Espiritu Santo ay dumaloy sa buong bansa ng Pilipinas kung paanong ang katawan ng mga mananampalataya isahin at sambahin ang Panginoon ng buong tapang at sa pamamagitan ng kanilang mga pagkilos

Sa pangalan ni Jesus nagdarasal ako, Amen

But before you go…

***Tomorrow is not promised. Today is all we have. If you are reading this and haven’t accepted Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Savior, would you consider doing so right now? Jesus died so He could have a personal relationship with you and so that one day, when you leave this earth, you can spend eternity with Him. You can say a prayer similar to this:

Dear Lord, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and that I cannot save myself. You showed Your great love for me, while I was in my sinful state, by sending Jesus Christ to die for me. Today, right now, I declare that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead. Please enter into my heart, Lord Jesus, forgive me of all of my sins, and seal me with Your Holy Spirit. I choose this day to live for You, all the days of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

If you said this prayer (or something similar) and you truly meant it, welcome to the family of God! Angels in heaven are rejoicing with you on the best decision you will ever make in life, and so am I! Please send me an email (ladyinwaiting222@gmail.com) or respond to this post so I can celebrate with you!

Then the Lord God made a woman
