12 Weeks of Prayer: Week 1-Day 1

12 Weeks of Prayer: Week 1-Day 1

By Dr. Teresa Allissa Citro

Founder and President of Thread of Hope

I’m very excited to share that God is calling us at Thread of Hope to lead in prayer again. Last week, the Lord put in my heart to call an intense warfare prayer vigil. He then gave us weekly prayer points and it turns out to be exactly 12 weeks. This number is very significant biblically. It’s considered to be a symbol of perfection and government. It is also perceived as a symbol of authority and completeness. Isn’t that interesting?

This tells me that Jesus Christ, Who is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, is about to showcase His power and might. In Isaiah 9:6 it says, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Please understand, this verse has nothing to do with a spiritual leader. Rather, it has everything to do with a Kingly leader. Let me explain. Before the birth of Jesus Christ, the priests from the house of Zadok had the responsibility of carrying the government upon their shoulders. They were considered the religious leaders. Notice how nobody was considered the actual kingly leader? Until the birth of Christ. Then everything changed.

This Kingly leader is the Lord Jesus Christ! He came the first time to pay our debt and reconcile us back to God. He came as the Perfect Lamb of God. Next time He comes, He’s coming as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, and the rightful Kingly leader. He IS the Prince of Peace. The government IS upon his shoulders.

Beloved, Jesus is soon coming. We do not know the time or hour, but we know He is coming. He will reign as the Kingly leader.

The world is in great turmoil, confusion, and it is full of lovers of themselves. Good is evil, evil is good. In case you haven’t noticed, we are living in a time of great deception, conniving, and lying. Seems like all hell has broken loose. The Bible warns us of such times and such spirits. We are to stand our ground in faith. We are not to move in fear as many are doing.

Please read the following passages with me.
