A Greater Resolve in 2008

Grateful for 2007 & Greater Resolve in 2008

Prayer Surge Now (PSN) was launched in May 2007 when military and political situation in Iraq seemed beyond hope. As you recall, in unison the insurgency and al Qaeda were terrorizing the innocent and the international coalition was about to be driven out. Together, Iran and Syria were gaining greater influence and stronghold in Iraq. Many in the media and the majority of our politicians were claiming defeat for America and the newly formed government of Iraq.

Along with hundreds for other intercessory ministries all across the globe, PSN and coalition of intercessors began to contend for heaven on earth in Iraq and beyond. Together as ONE, we began to apply 1 Chronicles 7:14, 1 Timothy 2:1-8 & Psalm 33:12-22 and witnessed God's merciful and powerful response. Let us pause and thank God for His Mighty Arm of Salvation among the nations!

This year has been the launching pad of what the LORD has poised to do for centuries in the ancient Bible Lands. As we continue With Christ in the School of Prayer in 2008, we will witness the move of God's Spirit like in the days of Moses, David, Paul, Luther, Wesley, Lincoln and Howells. He longs to fulfill the His promise in Isaiah 19:23-25 and bring the Muslims and the Jews under the Lordship of His Son. We, as American intercessors, will play a key role in touching the Father's Heart in ushering the Greatest Revival in both the Middle East and North America.

"Rejoice always,
in everything give thanks;
for this is the

for you."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

"We Have a Choice: Humility or Humiliation"

We Have a Choice: Humility or Humiliation is the most critical message for the American Church. Would you consider including this devotional booklet by James Robison as a part of your New Year reading? Please E-mail us at and ask for your PDF version.

PSN also recommends:

With Christ in the School of Prayer by Andrew Murray for the month of January. This classic book contains 31 Teaching of Jesus on prayer for ALL Christians. Andrew Murray witnessed revivals as a result of applying the instructions of the Greatest Intercessor.

The Book that Transforms Nations, a new book written by Loren Cunningham. As the founder and leader of the world's largest missionary agency, Youth With A Mission , the author has traveled to every nation on earth and witnessed the transforming power of the Bible in nation after nation. As the American Church returns to the roots of prayer & submission to God's Word, we will live in intimate friendship with God and witness the Greatest Awakening during our own lifetime!

Pakistan in Crisis & Christmas in Baghdad

Prayer Alert!!!
Pakistan in Volatile State after Benazir Bhutto's Assassination
Aimee Herd : Dec 27, 2007 : Sadaqat Jan and Zarar Khan – AP, CBN News

"The death of the charismatic 54-year-old former prime minister threw the campaign for the Jan. 8 parliamentary elections into chaos and created fears of mass protests and violence across the nuclear-armed nation, an important U.S. ally in the war on terrorism." –AP (Rawalpindi, Pakistan)

As Thursday was just beginning in the Western part of the world—in Rawalpindi, an afternoon rally by former Pakistani Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto, was tragically cut short as Bhutto was shot and killed, getting into her car. Known as the first female leader of a Muslim nation in modern history, Bhutto was assassinated just moments before a suicide bomber then blew himself up, killing at least 20 more people.The distressing incident triggered a state of "Red Alert" throughout Pakistan, and will not only affect the country's upcoming elections, but could also rock surrounding nations, as well as impacting the American presidential campaigns and the War on Terror. An article by the Associated Press stated: "The death of the charismatic 54-year-old former prime minister threw the campaign for the Jan. 8 parliamentary elections into chaos and created fears of mass protests and violence across the nuclear-armed nation, an important U.S. ally in the war on terrorism."

Praise Report!!!
Baghdad Churches Were Overflowing at Christmas
Teresa Neumann, Dec 27, 2007 : Staff - CBS/AP

"We didn't celebrate like this in the past two years as we were holding limited celebrations for relatives in an atmosphere filled with fear. Now we feel better as we see all these security forces in the streets to protect us." (Iraq)

The AP reports that thousands of Iraqi Christians crowded into Baghdad churches on Tuesday to celebrate Christmas. "The number of attacks in Iraq, in general, has fallen dramatically in the past few months—the U.S. military says by 60 percent since June—and the country's small Christian community took advantage of the lower violence to turn out in numbers unthinkable a year ago," the report noted.

William Jalal, was quoted as saying this Christmas was clearly different. "We didn't celebrate like this in the past two years as we were holding limited celebrations for relatives in an atmosphere filled with fear. Now we feel better as we see all these security forces in the streets to protect us." At one Chaldean Catholic church, Sunni and Shiite Muslim clerics attended the service, reportedly in a sign of unity.

"May Iraq be safe every year, and may our Christian brothers be safe every year," said Shiite cleric Hadi al-Jazail. "We came to celebrate with them and to reassure them. This national gathering is beautiful against the sectarian fighting, and God willing from this lesson we'll all pray for peace."

Christmas Message from President Bush

President George W. Bush
December 22, 2007

"At this time of year, we acknowledge that love and sacrifice can transform our world. The miracle of Christmas reminds us that God's grace is revealed in the humblest places. Two thousand years ago, the fullness of that grace was found in a tiny manger, and the life born that day changed our world forever. As Christmas approaches, Laura and I extend to all Americans our best wishes, and we hope every family is brought closer together during this season of reflection and rejoicing."

Above is a portion last Saturday's White House Weekly Radio Address. Please take a few minutes and read and/or listen to the entire message as President Bush uses the occasion of Christmas to remind Americans the sacrifice made by our "Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guard men and women who will be spending this holiday far away from their homes and loved ones" and their families.

Prayer Surge Now appreciates every member of the United States military and our Commander in Chief. Merry Christmas to ALL!

Micah 5:2-5

May the Father’s revelation of His Son in the Book of Micah give us much joy as we remember the birth of Jesus as well as give us great hope in His Mighty Return!

"But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for Me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times. Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when she who is in labor gives birth and the rest of His brothers return to join the Israelites. He will stand and shepherd His flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD His God. And they will live securely, for then His greatness will reach to the ends of the earth. And He will be their peace."
