cindyjacobsLike you, I am greatly distressed about the situation in the Middle East. Below is a word to the Christians in the Middle East and the worldwide church, along with a prayer guide for Egypt and the Middle East.

There are certain things that I have not written to all, but I believe that the Muslim Brotherhood is behind much of this, or at least taking advantage of it. As you may know, Mubarak just announced today that he will not seek re-election. We must continue to pray for stability in Egypt, for a peaceful transition that will not result in leadership by the Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia law.

Pray for Jordan as well, that the people will stand with the king and that this unrest across the Middle East will not result in an Islamic Caliphate being established.

Below are also several articles along with a video link that will bring further insight regarding the seriousness of what's happening in Egypt and the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Please join us in fasting and prayer during this most critical time.


As you are aware, this is one of the most critical and serious times for believers across the Middle East in recent memory. As a prophet, I have been seeking the Lord for a prophetic word concerning the situation in Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia, Yemen, and other parts of the Arabic-speaking world as well as those greatly influenced by Islamic teaching.

Also, in looking back at the prophetic word for 2011 issued by the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders, I read the warning we issued that said that Satan would try and start another third world war. One of his purposes was to stop the new missionary movements taking place across the face of the earth.

I believe we are at that tipping point at this moment where the situation in Egypt could de-stabilize the region to such a degree that just such a scenario would take place. Of course, new regimes could be put in place that would cause Iranian-type oppressions of believers.

This is why I am calling for the Body of Christ around the world, and particularly the Arabic-speaking community to participate in a season of prayer and fasting beginning as soon as you receive this letter.

Many may want to even have such a severe fast as an "Esther fast." Others can fast as their health allows. If you are able to do an n Esther fast, I am suggesting for a three day time period.

Further, I feel like I am hearing from the Lord that what Satan has meant for evil, God will turn for good if the church across the Middle East will put aside their doctrinal and denominational differences and come together in unity to pray. The walls of division must fall if the Christian community is going to be protected.

While things seem quite dire, if the church will fast and pray together as one, the turmoil will die down and God will protect the world from a terrible war.

On a redemptive note, I see a generation of young leaders arising out of the church who are anointed to preach the gospel and see a great harvest of souls all across the Middle East, as well as North Africa, Central Asia, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
