The Sabers Are Rattling

“Recently as I was praying for America, I heard these words, ‘The sabers are rattling, the sabers are rattling!’ I knew what it meant! Iran, North Korea, and the sword of Islam are restless. The sound of sabers rattling grew very loud in my spirit until they were deafening. While we have been hearing of ‘wars and rumors of wars’ for some time now, I have not felt such an alarm in my spirit, as I do now. We need to continue to pray for the United States for protection before the elections, as well as stand against a regional incident that could escalate into a major theatre of war. The world leaders who are for peace need great wisdom right now.” (Cindy Jacobs)1

“You will not be afraid of the terror by night, or of the arrow that flies by day. If you say, ‘The Lord is my refuge,’ and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.” (Psalm 91:5 and 9-10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. See yourself standing in the gap and interceding for peace in the restless nations and ask God for mercy.

  2. Ask the Lord to grant wisdom and authority to those world leaders He has raised up as peacemakers in this hour. Pray they would be honored and heard.

  3. Intercede regarding terrorism and violence in this nation and pray against a regional incident that could launch World War III. Decree that the enemy will not be able to move God’s plan out of His timing.

  4. Pray for protection for the United States’ election season, over every candidate and for the post-election season, as well. Declare that there will be no riots after the elections.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I choose to stand in the gap and pray for peace over the nations. I believe the words of the prophet that there are forces in some nations, such as N. Korea and Iran, as well as some Islamic warring groups that would desire to start another world war. Grant Your wisdom and authority to peacemaking leaders, Lord. May they be honored and heard by the war-mongers, so that they will put their weapons down. Intervene and uncover plans for terror in this nation and in others. Protect our people as they go to the polls in November. Protect the candidates. I decree there will be peace following the elections, as well. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

The enemy will not be able to succeed at increasing terror in this nation or in starting World War III anywhere in the earth.
