Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled :: By Keith Watts

2 Corinthians 4:8 “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair.”

I want to share with you what is in my heart. This world is going crazy. It seems to me evil is spreading all over the world every moment of every day. It seems the whole world is against the Nation of Israel and all Jews from around the world. (Jesus is able to take care of Israel.) It seems every nation on the earth is going to go to war with each other or has already started, and the wars are going to spread to other nations. It seems there will be no elections in November. It seems every state in our nation is getting ready for riots and the breakdown of our society. It seems that many states are calling up their National Guard before April 8, 2024. The officials are asking us to stock up on food and water and be prepared.

Many of us Americans believe something big is going to happen here in America real soon. What a fitting verse 2 Corinthians 4:8 is for all that I have written in this article. That list is so much longer than what I have written. But those of us who know and continue to study the Bible are not surprised; the Bible has much to say about what is going on today.

What I am surprised about is the speed at which everything is going toward the Rapture of the Church and the start of the seven-year Tribulation Period. It is going so fast that it feels like my head is spinning. When you look at all that is going on, it is troubling to us, and it is coming from all four sides. But we, as Christians, do not have to be distressed. The Great Comforter lives inside us. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace – the peace that passeth all understanding. We who are bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus do not have to live in fear and be in distress. The easiest thing to do is to be perplexed, but we don’t have to be in despair. Why is this? Because our hope is in Christ Jesus. We live in the truth. When we keep our eyes on Jesus, we will not feel in distress or in despair.

John 14:1 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.”

John 14:2 “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”

John 14:3 “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”

Jesus is saying this to you and me today, “Let not your heart be troubled.” When we are praying, reading our Bible, spending alone time with the Lord, and singing to the Lord, our heart is not troubled. When we dwell on what is going on, our hearts will be troubled. Let us quit dwelling on the waves that are coming at us, and let us get our eyes back on Jesus, who is waking on the waves.

What is the key to all of this? Jesus said it, “Believe in God, believe also in me.” If your heart is troubled, distressed, or in despair, then you are not trusting in the Lord to bring you through what you are facing. What are we facing? It is really big; are you ready for the answer? WE ARE LOSING OUR BELOVED COUNTRY, AND IT HURTS SO MUCH.


If your heart is in trouble, and you are feeling fear, distress, or despair, stop and go to your Bible and start reading it. Start praying and singing to the Lord. Spend more alone time with the Lord every day.

On April 14, 2021, I started this Worldwide Prayer Movement. The first Nation was Kenya. The Holy Spirit moved upon my heart to do this, and I said yes to the leading of the Holy Spirit. On March 26, 2024, we will have prayed, fasted, and repented for every nation for 24 hours. Prayer warriors have joined with us from around the world. On April 2, 2024, we will start back with the continent of Africa. Here are some facts about the continent of Africa.

  1. As of Sunday, March 25, 2024, there are over 1,485,434,775 precious souls on the continent of Africa.
  2. As of March 15, 2024, 39,112 churches are on the continent of Africa. (Nearly in total darkness.)

I ask the question: have you shed a tear, prayed, or fasted for these precious Africans? How many pastors’ church members in Africa have fasted, prayed, and shed tears for the continent of Africa? So many churches, so why is it in total darkness? Most of these churches do not preach and teach the truth. In the last four years, I have dealt with hundreds of pastors across Africa. Many churches are all about healing the body, worshiping the Holy Spirit, and receiving money. Very few churches preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Very few churches preach and teach that it takes the blood of Jesus to save you. Very few churches preach and teach that if you die today, you will enter into hell forever. Very few churches preach and teach THE TRUTH. (The Bible says, “The truth shall set you free.”)

Jesus is the Light of the world, so that is why Africa is in darkness. It breaks my heart. I LOVE THE PEOPLE OF AFRICA, BUT THEY LOVE THEIR SIN MORE THAN JESUS.

I ask all prayer warriors from around the world to join us for a day of prayer, fasting, and repentance on April 2, 2024, for these 7 nations.

  1. Angola and on behalf of over 37,502,811 precious souls.
  2. Benin and on behalf of over 13,981,276 precious souls.
  3. Botswana and on behalf of over 2,707,809 precious souls.
  4. Burkina Faso and on behalf of over 23,681,942 precious souls.
  5. Burundi and on behalf of over 13,496,671 precious souls.
  6. USA, and be on behalf of over 341,344,771 precious souls.
  7. Israel and all Jews around the world and on behalf of over 16.7 million precious Jews.

We believe that we will move the heart of our Heavenly Father. I ask you pastors to ask your prayer warriors to join us on this day. Post this on all media.

We are praying for the harvest of precious souls to the kingdom of Jesus Christ.
