200 Hours of Prayer for 200 Years of Reclamation

Youth With A Mission (YWAM) has had a presence in Haiti, in St. Marc, since 1991.  In 2008, there was a vision to establish a YWAM base in Port-au-Prince, which was realized days after the earthquake struck in January of this year.
Fire and Fragrance is a ministry YWAM that pairs prayer and missions together.  Several YWAM missionaries based in Kona, Hawaii with Fire and Fragrance, have been ministering not only with their worship and intercession but also by bringing hands-on relief. 
These missionaries have been spearheading a prayer initiative that will begin November 20th and continue through November 28th, the day of Haiti’s national election, to mobilize churches in Haiti to intercede for the nation.

In Psalms 127, the Word of God declares that

“Unless the LORD builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the LORD guards the city,
The watchman keeps awake in vain.”

Without the Lord’s hand to rebuild Haiti and keep watch over it, the whole nation and anyone in it will labor in vain. God is looking to and fro on the earth for His children to stand in the gap in intercession, and we are answering that call (Ezekiel 22:30, 2nd Chronicles 16:9). . .
For 200 hours, we will be trumpeting a call for the churches of Haiti to commit to at least one hour of worship and prayer to cry out for repentance, redemption, and reclamation for the 200 years the nation submitted itself to Voodoo.

For more background and information on this prayer initiative and to participate, check and sign-up on the website, ipray4haiti.com.  James 5:16 (NIV) says,
 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
Imagine the power and efficacy of the prayers of many people on behalf of an entire nation!
