I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would protect our crops and guard our food supply. Keep us from famine, Lord!

We received this warning from an intercessor recently. Have you heard from the Lord? Please share what He is saying in the comments.

Join others crying out to the Lord day and night.


“I am an intercessor who lives in Yuma, AZ, the winter vegetable capital of our nation. The farmers here are just beginning to till the fields to plant their crops. Last night there was a locust on my door. I have lived here 14 years and never seen one before. I am aware well-respected prophets have warned of coming famine. Although, I do not carry the office of prophet I am quite prophetic. I strongly sense the Lord witnessing to me to take this as a sign of warning and reach out to everyone I know to be praying! Thank You, Lord, that You allow nothing to occur here on earth without first warning Your people through Your prophet! We bless You, Lord Jesus, and know that You are using all the shaking going on in our world today ultimately for Your glory. I hope others will join me in asking the Lord to be merciful and protect the crops in Yuma from devastation from locusts. This would probably also affect crops in Mexicali which would affect Mexico too. Thank You to everyone!!” –Gail

What a powerful word! As we join in prayer, let’s also pray through these 21 prayer points for our food supply:

  1. Pray that American farmland would remain in the hands of local farmers—not in the hands of oligarchs or companies with nefarious motives.
  2. Ask the Lord to protect crops from fire, floods, and other hazards.
  3. Ask the Lord to defend the famers from requirements that they switch to electric harvesting equipment which cannot be recharged on huge farms—and which cannot withstand the rigors of harvesting thousands of acres of crops quickly.
  4. Pray that the Lord would station angels around our food factories, farms, and grocery stores.
  5. Ask the Lord to protect our infrastructure, such as roadways, harbors, railroads, and other freight-handling systems.
  6. Pray that harmful chemicals would be removed from farms, air, and even from processed food.
  7. Pray for farmers to be vocal about the challenges facing the fresh food supply, and for people to listen.
  8. Ask the Lord to put it on the hearts of the people’s representatives to create legislation that protects our food supply and blocks any enemy attempt to steal our nation’s food.
  9. Pray that prices would come down on healthy food.
  10. Ask the Lord to remind us, His people, to care for the poor; and that He would provide for every family to eat well, no matter their socioeconomic status.
  11. Ask the Lord to give people wisdom to re-dig “ancient wells” and re-learn key information about how to grow and prepare our own food.
  12. Pray that people’s ability to purchase seeds would be protected.
  13. Ask that actual, physical LAND would be given into the hands of the people of God, so that we can live more simply and have the space and ability to grow our own food again, where desired.
  14. Ask the Lord to protect our water supply.
  15. Ask Him to expose and remediate any environmental contamination that makes people sick through food or water.
  16. Ask Him to heal the waters of our wells, cisterns, and public drinking water sources.
  17. Pray that any attacks against food factories would be exposed, hindered, and prevented.
  18. Ask the Lord to give Americans wisdom regarding what to eat in order to get and stay healthy.
  19. Pray that Holy Spirit would pour out His anointing on us to care well for our bodies, which are His temple.
  20. Ask Him to quicken our mortal bodies.
  21. Pray that the Lord would help and inspire each of us make good food choices that are consistent with LIFE and health, not with sickness, death, and disease.

I got a word from the Lord months ago: “Your enemy, the Chaldeans, can heal you.”

I had a dream several months ago that I went into a grocery store and the cupboards were empty…..not good.

You, oh God, are the LORD of the earth, the Creator and Sustainer! We look to you and trust you to “give us this day our daily bread.” Thank you for your provision and protection! Thank you for the Gospel that deals with the core of ill health — sin. May we turn to you in repentance and live lives that please and glorify you with our hearts, our minds, and our bodies. And may the generations that follow be diligently instructed in your ways. In Jesus’ matchless name!

We have to pray for the downfall of the big guys ie Bill Gates who owns so much of our farmland. We must pray against government intervention against the coming of lab made meats and engineered food from insects. Check out David Sorensen web Stop world control for the latest on this

Yes thank you will pray
I have heard the Lord use scripture to speak to me
The word vitals in the Bible he led me to
It says to prepare vitals
I believe he is telling us to prepare
It may be for our selves nieghbor and family but also should the Lord come it may be here for those left . May we store up the word also. Praying getting a heavenly perspective we do nothing in fear but all in love and a sound mind perfect love cast out fear. #1 store up treasure that cannot rust nor theives break in and steal. Stay alert fellowship with others draw near to the Lord let him purify our hearts.

I am so grateful for my brothers and sisters in God’s family, and I ask that you receive this message in love and revelation.
God firmly gave his Kingdom children The Power in the Name of Jesus to take Dominion over all the earthly lands, and strongholds that would try to block God’s plans on all of the earth !!! Jesus paid with His own Blood on the Cross that God’s Kingdom reign on earth, God’s will be done !!! He has fully paid the PRICE to overcome evil.
satan came only to kill, steal and destroy, deceive our thoughts. Don’t let our minds be diluted with subtle twisted human ways. Turn off the brainwashing media, the ‘what if’s” that would confuse us.

    Judy….I had just read Francis Frangapane’s message about “The Latter Rain” when I read your declaration of faith!

    You say, “Jesus paid with His own Blood on the Cross that God’s Kingdom reign on earth, God’s will be done !!!”

    Francis Frangapage says, “The world only sees the headlines from hell, yet the gospel of the kingdom is advancing. God will not stop until “all nations” hear the gospel.”

    I say, “Amen and Amen!”

Dear Lord: Please provide food for our children, for the elderly and disabled, for those who lost so much during the Hurricane Ian, for all poor people, for war torn countries, for the survivers if the Holocaust, and for the homeless. Please protect our farmers, our water suppliers, our food stores. In the name of Jesus I pray! Also save our children and babies from evil and abortions. Put Jesus in the hearts of our leaders. Worship you God not money and things and power. Wipe out all that is evil and change hearts. Thank You for loving and caring forevery one of us! Amen.

I remember a few years ago a women Prophet had a word she saw famine over US and we needed to repent… I thought we were repenting and standing in this stolen election and other things we are never going to have 100% repentance. Lord turn this around and be glorified in this situation. As your angels are busy exposing all the evil cabal this assignment is nothing to ad to their assignment to uproot all locusts and do mighty miracles. Thank you Father God for the three in one in Jesus name.

October 15, 2022

I had a vision of a black horse during prayer. I truly believe out of love it was a warning to not only repent but stock up on supplies and stay in the Body of Christ. Do whatever you need to do but stock up on water and food. God bless us all. Praying for the faith and patient endurance. A spirit of the Fear of the Lord and to rest in the fact Jesus has overcome the world. Thank you Holy Father.

A Prophetic Perspective for the Jewish New Year 5783. Succot Hallel
Succat Hallel (Hebrew for Tent of Praise) is a community of worshippers and intercessors from five continents drawn together to stand as watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem.

I received Rick Riding’s prayer perspective yesterday and spent some time reading the transcript that accompanies his video. Because I understand better reading than listening, I created an 18 page document to more easily read through again….

To the point: Gail’s prayer appeal reminded me of Rees Howells mentioned in Mr. Ridings prayer perceptive.

Reese Howells- (1879-1950) intercessor, founder the Bible College of Wales, shaper of international events and the destiny of nations through prayer.

He spoke of Reese Howells’ Mantle- this was an understanding in revelation that we’re not to just pray according to what we see with our eyes or think with our minds or political opinions. But that we’re to worship and pray until the Lord begins to show us things as He sees them because He’s delegated authority on the earth to the Believers and we are to pray and proclaim His will upon earth as it has already been decided in heaven.

Mr. Riding in this meeting said, “Many of us in this room have seen our nations under a huge demonic assault. It’s like the enemy has come in a surprising way. But God – I said, “Lord, why are you allowing this?” And I thought He said, “ It is because I want to lay the axe to the roots. And if I answered everyone’s prayers the way they were praying and cut off a little here and pruned a little there, the roots would still be there. But I wanted to expose the roots of wickedness, of unrighteousness, of injustice, so that people could realize how deep and how strong the roots were. And I want to lay the axe to the roots.” This is a time for that. Another term we can use for that is turning back the battle at the gates. And I want to share a testimony of one nation in recent weeks that we’ve been focusing on in prayer here in Succat Hallel and the testimony of that if we do.”

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray in agreement with Gail and all others. We “thank You, Lord, that You allow nothing to occur here on earth without first warning Your people through Your prophets! We bless You, Lord Jesus, and know that You are using all the shaking going on in our world today ultimately for Your glory. We join together in asking You for mercy and protection over the crops in Yuma (and Mexicali) from devastation from locusts.” We realize how deep and how strong the roots of wickedness, unrighteousness and injustice are. We realize this is an ancient enemy who You know full well. LORD, oppose those who oppose us. Fight those who fight against us. Put on Your armor and take up your shield. Prepare for battle, and come to our aid. Lift up your spear and javelin against our enemy. Let us hear you say, “I will give you victory!” I ask this and so much more in the Name of Jesus Christ. I ask this and so much more in Mighty Holy Spirit Power. I ask this and so much more for Your Glory and our good. Amen

Contend with My Opponents, O LORD, Psalm 35

October 15, 2022

I live in a NW FL suburb (not farmland) and ironically, I too saw a locust on my patio a couple of days ago. Never have seen one before. Very odd. A sign? I think so. I will be sharing this prayer with my prayer group and church this week.

Thank you dear Intercessor,I am Mrs Sheryl from India.
Here in India we are experiencing untimely rains&the crops of rice, pulses are totally destroyed. As I was seeking the LORD about it ,I was lead to Job:11-13,,my sense is we are being chastened for the lackadaisical attitude of our spiritual leaders who want to be in “good books”of people of other faith&hence are compromising on the WORD of GOD,
Yes ,there is a famine coming, let’s gird our loins&stand wearing the armor of GOD,praying in spirit,

    Audrey, I couldn’t read through your list, my heart was hurting just looking at it. May God have mercy on us all. Holy Spirit, please intercede for us and direct our hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance. Amen

    Romans 8: 26-27
    In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know how we ought to pray, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans too deep for words. And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

    2 Thessalonians 3:5
    May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.

    They missed at least one. Herbruck’s poultry farm in Michigan suffered a fire in early April this year. No birds lost. They have had a number of fires in the past, with 250,000 chickens killed. I was deeply concerned when they had two fires close together recently. Too close to home.

    Lord, cover our food producers with Your sheltering presence and protection. When they are the targets of plots, let the schemes be exposed and thwarted. Let the wicked themselves fall into the pits they have dug!

    October 15, 2022
