Prayer Center

Nov 20

As Christians, we are called to pray for God’s guidance and wisdom. At Rapture Ready we feel it is more imperative than ever for believers to stand together in prayerful unity as the world continues on a downward spiral toward the Tribulation hour. Calamity causes people to waste huge amounts of time fixated on watching the destruction instead of praying for protection and God’s miraculous interventions.

The Bible is filled with verses encouraging us to stay focused on praying for God’s will for our lives; for the safety and wellbeing of our families, ministries and leaders; for the spiritual awakening of the unsaved so they to come to true salvation in Christ; and of course for one another and anything that the Lord places upon our hearts.

Up to the final moments of our days on earth, until the day of the Rapture of the Church, we are dedicated to be prayer warriors for the cause of Christ. We have added this new page to invite and motivate our fellow believers to pray for the most pressing needs of the day.

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (1 Timothy 2)


Call to Prayer: “When will it End?”

We’re asking for prayer this week regarding two concerns, not that there aren’t many more. One is for the injured victims and families of the deceased in yet another mass shooting. On November 13 and 14, 44-year-old Kevin Neal, who had a history of mental and anger issues, including arrests, perpetrated a series of shootings in Rancho Tehama Reserve in California, using a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns. He was barred from owning guns after a stabbing incident in January; however, he manufactured the guns at his home.

He killed five people and wounded 12 others at several crime scenes, including at an elementary school. In addition to the victims who were shot during the rampage, several others were injured by shattered glass.

Neal killed his wife on November 13 and hid her body under the floorboards in their home.The next day, November 14, he killed two neighbors with whom he’d been feuding, claiming they were making meth and that the fumes were injuring his nine dogs. (Neal himself was a pot grower, which is a big business in California Land. His sister has since stated that she believed he was addicted to drugs. If indeed his dogs were affected, perhaps they were nibbling on those plants).

After the initial murders, Neal went on a random shooting spree, firing at vehicles and pedestrians. He ran inside an elementary school, firing at windows and walls, and tried to get inside classrooms, which were locked down by a diligent custodian as soon as shots were heard. This same custodian also rounded up children to get inside and hide in the classrooms when the shooter rammed a stolen truck through the front gates.

Two children were shot and wounded at the school, and a woman was shot as she tried to distract Neal away from the school.After leaving there, Neal continued his rampage before being killed by sheriff deputies.

Six of those shot and wounded were children – two very young students at the school, and three other children from the same family who were wounded when Neal shot at their vehicle. Their mother was also shot.

Six-year-old Aileen Favela said she wasn’t aware of what was happening when a classmate yelled for her to “get down.” She said she was worried about her brother during the shooting.  Both are now afraid to go to school. Surely many other children feel the same way.

Victims’ families have turned to online fundraisers to help with medical expenses.

The other request for prayer concerns our nation. The minions of madness, who have proven they’ll stop at nothing to wrest back power, are upping the ante in trying to remove our president from office. Several House Democrats on Wednesday filed articles of impeachment, needless to say for bogus reasons, one of them being the fact that $73,000 in federal tax dollars was spent for Secret Service golf carts at the president’s Mar-a-Lago Florida resort. Seriously? President Trump doesn’t take a salary for one thing; and for another, how many times did Obama play golf while president, which required Secret Service, not to mention the tons of vacations?

Here was another outlandish claim: “It’s time for Congress to take action to stop this reckless and harmful behavior by removing Mr. Trump from office and to defend and uphold the Constitution of the United States.” How ironic is that? Since when does the Marxist Democrat Party of today care about our Constitution? A million-dollar ad campaign is being launched to try and stoke public sentiment for their seditious, global agenda. And California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters (whose actions prove she isn’t qualified to be in politics, to say the least) continues her rhetoric. At a Glamour magazine event on Monday in New York, she asked attendees to chant along with her, “Impeach him. Impeach Trump.”

The hypocrisy is astounding, but nevertheless is something we should expect in these upside-down last days. Speaking of which, invoking the power of demonic false gods was part of the equation at the “Catharsis on the Mall” in D.C. last weekend, where a statue of  Shiva the Destroyer looked upon the Washington Monument; and a giant metal statue of Abraxas the Dragon was rolled through the streets around the Capitol in a protest march. This “demon lord of magic wands” is also present in the game “Dungeons and Dragons.”

“Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:11-16).

The end-of-days birth pangs are upon us and will continue to increase in intensity and frequency. We’re seeing the signs that the Tribulation is near, and only those in Christ will be removed from the earth to escape the wrath to come.

“And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another …And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold… As the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:10, 12, 37).

Pray for Sutherland… and More!

We have yet another mass murder! In the small town of 400 people in Sutherland, Texas, many were in the First Baptist Church on Sunday, Nov. 5th, and were methodically mowed down by a madman. 26 people were killed and 20 others were injured.Among those murdered were eight children and an unborn child. Nine of those killed were from the same family, which included the unborn child. As of this writing, some of the injured are still in critical condition. The children suffered the most injuries.

The Left Said Don’t Bother to Pray

So-called “progressives” reacted with venomous criticism to those who offered thoughts and prayers. The vilest of comments came from Hollywood and the political arena. Prayer was mocked and also the victims! Of course they blamed a lack of gun-control laws for the shooting. Yet the very cities with the strictest gun-control laws in our nation have the most shootings.

The Real Problem is Spiritual

Our founding fathers were as imperfect as we all are; but they believed in the power of prayer, and so did most of those who built this nation. However, those who aim to “fundamentally transform America” don’t want prayer. They don’t want God.

Our president offered thoughts and prayers to Sutherland:

“To the families of the victims: We are praying for you and we are here for you, and we ask God to help see you through this very dark period. Scripture teaches us, ‘The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.’”

President Trump needs our continuous prayers to fight off those who mean to take him down along with this nation—the only nation standing in the way of the implementation of the globalists’ New World Order.

They’re Destroying Minds and Bodies of the Children

Stay in continuous prayer for the children, who are under attack in every way from everywhere. In the news this week: A 7th grade teacher gave a lesson on “changing sexes,” including a video on transgender surgery. Google has a YouTube cartoon app in which millions of children are watching Spider-Man urinate on Elsa from ‘Frozen’; Mickey Mouse hit by a car & dying in front of a crying Minnie; Pippa the Pig tortured while screaming and crying, a cartoon character dancing on a stripper pole, etc. An excerpt is shown as proof on the site canadafreepress.com titled, “Parents need to tell Google to Take.Their.YouTube-Kids-App. Down.”

Perversion Knows No Bounds

In the news is the arrest of Democrat politician, Philip Ahr, who went by DaddyX in his online chats. According to investigators, Ahr has sent and received hundreds of child porn images since 2014, some depicting infants and toddlers as well as “sadomasochistic abuse and abuse involving children and animals.”

Pray for and comfort one another. Pray for strength to endure these dark days as we await our Blessed Hope—our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ—to call us Home.

“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 3:13-15).


Nov. 6

Pray for the Injured in NYC Terror Attack and for Families of Those who were Killed, etc.

The Globalist Agenda is to Blame

On October 31, eight people were killed and a dozen injured in New York City when a terrorist ran over bicyclists and rammed a school bus. The victims included students, school staff and tourists from Argentina and Belgium.

One of the students was said to be in critical condition. Three members of one family were injured; the mother received such massive trauma to both legs that they had to be amputated. Her husband and son suffered head and neck injuries.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, calling the killer, Sayfullo Saipov, a “soldier of the caliphate.”

This terrorist is a Muslim from Uzbekistan who came here in 2010 as part of the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, in which people from foreign countries are randomly chosen to receive a green card, allowing them to come to the US. About 50,000 of these green cards are awarded annually. Congress created the program in 1990 to “further diversify” the US. Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer of New York drafted the language creating the program when he was a member of the House of Representatives.

Critics say this program has no justification. Of course it doesn’t, but it fits the globalist agenda. President Trump argued for its elimination last month (as part of any deal to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants), saying the program should have been “merit based.”

Regarding More Minion Madness and Mayhem

Thankfully, Saturday’s “Refuse Fascism” protests, which organizers had hoped would attract many thousands at each location, were not that successful. “Refuse Fascism” is considered to be a non-violent protest organization, as opposed to Antifa. Obviously, those paid Soros thugs were not called upon for Saturday’s march.

As this post is being typed, the Worldwide Million-Mask March has not yet taken place (scheduled for November 5th). It has shown to be more violent every year.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come… evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:1,13).

As always, pray that our nation will not be taken over by the prophesied sinister global government until Jesus calls up His true believers in the rapture.


Oct. 30 

Prayer is needed regarding Saturday, November 4th.

The group that planned for national protests to begin on November 4th at various locations (which it hopes will continue until the Trump administration is removed) is not called “Antifa.” It is called “Refuse Fascism” and was started by Bob Avakian of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, after the Democrat party (which today shares their same goals) lost the election. They are the real fascists who employ the Marxist tactic of projecting their guilt onto the innocent party in order to create confusion.

The end goal of Marxism and Socialism is Communism; all end badly, as those of us who know real history can attest to and see happening in Venezuela today.

The group’s co-founder, Sunsara Taylor, claims they have not partnered with similar groups, although they have been at protests with Antifa. She claims that their group is non-violent, but does not condemn any tactics others use to protest. Of course, it is reasonable to assume that other Soros’ funded groups, such as Antifa, will join this protest in their joint effort to take down the U.S. and bring on  sinister, global government—which the Bible tells us will exist during the Tribulation.

Don’t take the bait. This is what these demonically-inspired groups want so they can blame any violence on Trump supporters. Let the police, and if needed, the National Guard, deal with them. The best thing we can do is to stay home and pray for our law-enforcement officers and military, and that our president—and those who share the same constitutional principles—can  hold onto our freedom until Christ calls up His true believers in the rapture.

These deceived minions hate Bible-believing Christianity. A September 28 post on the “Refuse Fascism” Facebook page said that they are against “Bible believers.” And on their website they refer to us as “Christian theocrats…who want to encode their oppressive and hateful values into law.” (Theocrats are considered to be those who support government by divine guidance or by divinely-guided officials).

As for the national blackout drill that will take place from November 4-6,  conducted by the Department of Defense, we should not assume it is a “real” blackout. Similar drills have been conducted in recent years and were “simulated” exercises to practice crisis response and information sharing in the event of an EMP attack.

“Even so, come Lord Jesus.”

Call for Continued Prayer for the Children

Satan is targeting the most vulnerable members of society — the children. In every area he aims to influence their minds from an early age:  in the education system (preschool through college), on TV, in movies, video games, books, etc.

Drag queens dressed as outrageously as possible read books and sing songs that promote the LGBTQI agenda to small children in New York public libraries. Just this week at the Michelle Obama Public Library in California, a satanic-looking drag queen, complete with goat horns, read to the children. And these children are accompanied by complicit parents! In recent months a Luciferian-looking drag queen was even a guest on a children’s TV show.

Sex trafficking of children is not just lurking deep in the shadows of the Middle East, Africa and Asia as one might expect. It’s become persistent worldwide with some on the receiving end in “high places.”

Ontario is a major center for human trafficking in Canada. London is a popular destination for sex traffickers in the UK due to its proximity to Hwy. 401, the American border and Toronto. The biggest sex exploitation scandal in UK history was recently exposed in Rotherham; it’s been going on for years, largely ignored by authorities — Muslim taxi drivers removing children from homes and schools, and then taking them elsewhere for sex, even dousing them with gasoline as a warning of what would happen to them if they tell.

In the US there is an epidemic of children caught up in sex trafficking. FBI agents and local police carried out a four-day nationwide sweep from Oct.12-15 to rescue children from all 50 states. 84 children have been recovered and 120 alleged traffickers were arrested. In one instance, a man offered up a 3-month-old baby and her 5-year-old sister for a payment of $600. And he was “a friend” of the children’s family!

God’s Word warns ANYONE who ruins His children: “Whoever causes the downfall of one of these little ones who believe in Me–it would be better for him if a heavy millstone were hung around his neck and he were drowned in the depths of the sea!” (Matthew 18:6).

We must stay in constant prayer for the children. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).

Call to Prayer for Those Affected by California Wildfires

A sudden and fast-moving series of fires in Northern California are being called catastrophic and among the deadliest in the state’s history. Diablo winds combined with low humidity and extremely dry conditions are fanning the flames.

Several thousand firefighters are focusing on protecting lives and property, while battling dozens of fires. Desperate family and friends are turning to social media, begging for help in finding missing loved ones, as authorities plead with people to mark themselves safe on the registry and ALE. Thousands of homes and buildings have been destroyed. News agencies are reporting that, across the state, millions of lawns are covered with ash; and thick, gray clouds of smoke hover over densely-populated areas.

Please stay in prayer for all those affected by this continuing devastation, including the firefighters who put themselves in harm’s way to protect them.

Call to Prayer for Las Vegas Victims, and Concerning Newest Threat from North Korea

Please pray for the families of those killed in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

A number of the over 500 injured are still in the hospital, fighting for their lives. Please join with us in prayer for all who have been affected in this tragedy.

Also, please stay in prayer concerning the situation with North Korea. Sources believe that this rogue regime will conduct a test of an intercontinental ballistic missile with the capability of reaching the west coast of the U.S.

Prayers for the family of Otto Warmbier and for American citizens still imprisoned in the rogue regime of North Korea

Otto Warmbier was an American university student who visited North Korea in January 2016. He was sentenced to 15 years hard labor in prison for removing a propaganda poster from his hotel. He was sent back to America in June 2017 in a coma, and died six days later. His broken-hearted parents recently spoke out about their son’s body having showed evidence of extreme torture.

Three American citizens are still in custody: Kim Dong-chul (since October 2015), Tony Kim (since April 2017), and Kim Hak-song (since May 2017), having been accused of “so-called” hostile acts.

Please pray for these people and for that evil regime to be taken down.


Sep 25

Prayers for our Mexican neighbors and Puerto Rico

A 7.1 quake struck 90 miles south of Mexico City; killed hundreds of people. Puerto Rico took a direct hit from Maria with category 4 hurricane winds. There has now been five major disasters in North America in less than a month. God is clearly trying to send a warning to mankind. Please pray that people will heed the message.

Prayers For Texas Hurricane Victims

The people living along the Texas coast desperately need our prayers. Harvey was easily the strongest hurricane to hit the United States since Charley in 2004 and the first Category 3 or greater storm since Wilma in 2005.

Call for prayer as North Korea threatens nuclear war with America

North Korea is ruled by a mad man who will do anything to stay in power.  Kim Jong Un is working on an ICBM that will soon be able to strike America. The US has confirmed it is considering military options in response to any new missile launches by North Korea. Please pray that our political and military leaders do the right thing to resolve this threat.


July 10

The strongest quake in 20 years has occurred in Montana. As a result of the tectonic activity, concerns are rising sharply over the stability of the Yellowstone super volcano. If the volcano was to erupt, 90 percent of people living with 600 miles of the caldera could die.

With the the stakes so high, it is wise for all believers to pray that Yellowstone remains quiet.

Prayer for Prophetic Leaders

There seems to be a demonic conspiracy to hinder the health of leading prophecy speakers. I don’t want to mention names, but I’ll list some of the ailments that point to a satanic attack.

The host of a prophecy show has been bedridden for  several days; a well read author and TV host fell and hurt himself so badly he required hospitalization; and one of the top names in prophecy has been missing from his show for several weeks.

With there being fewer and fewer ministries to carry the end-time message, sites like RR need your prayers for protection and guidance.

A Prayer for America

Our Father in heaven, thank you for your blessings. All that is good comes from you, and we are thankful. You, in your omniscience, know about the all-out assault by evil forces upon those who want to return America to her constitutional foundation. The foundation based upon Christian principles you inspired the Founding Fathers to place within those beginning documents.

We pray that you restrain the evil of minions, both demonic and human, who are attempting to tear apart our president’s attempt to restore sound thinking and action within the nation’s government. Give, Oh Lord, this president the understanding, strength and resolve to do your will. Restrain, oh Father, those who want America’s leaders to throw off the bonds of righteousness by which you desire mankind to conduct life on earth.

Thank you for answering the prayers of your people in the 2016 presidential election in accordance with your promise found in 2 Chronicles 7:14. May we honor you by continuing to pray and to act in a way that is pleasing to you. Help us to do so, dear Father. May many  come to salvation in the time allotted to us before you call the Church home.
