Praying For The Culture
Father in the nae of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, we lift up the culture of this nation (Jamaica) to your throne of grace. Every practice, norm, belief, custom and lifestyle we have inherited from our ancestors we bring for your scrutiny, and what ever is not compatible with your infallible word, we call down your judgement on them.
We ask your Holy Spirit to help us examine our cultural heritage in all areas of operation as spearheaded by the arm of governance under the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sports.
We ask your blessing upon the minister in charge of this ministry, The Honorable Olivia Grange, guide her steps in the path of uprightness, in the path of truth, in the path of godliness for your name sake.
Help her Lord, to make the right choice, the right decisions that will liberate the mind of the people. Speak to her conscience, speak to her will, speak to her emotion, speak to her spirit now I pray Lord. I pray for the eternal salvation of the Honorable Olivia Grange that she may do the right things now for this nation, and her soul find rest in God her Saviour through Christ her Lord.
We declare that the right choices will be made by her and the team in this ministry in the area of beliefs and practices, dance, music, sports, religion, arts, and other aspects of ancestral heritage.
We declare that this nation under God, not any god, but the only true and living God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. The God of the Bible who revealed Himself in the person of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The God who became a man and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
We declare that every and any other god must be denounced by the powers that be. No other god but Jehovah. No foreign god, no ancestral god, no generational god, no false god in this nation.
We dismantle, root up and destroy the belief and practice of necromancy. Every ancestral beliefs holding on the premise that the souls of the dead may return to the living and influence their lives; that it is possible and acceptable for the living to communicate with the dead, and that the living are able to exert an effect on the destiny of deceased ancestors.
These are demonic practices form the prince of darkness, which open doors for more evil to overtake our land. We pull down every from of entertainment that are open doors for evil spirits to devour our people.
We pull down the dominance of the Rastafarian music, Reggae music, Dancehall music and other forms of musical entertainment that evoke evil, demonic and ancestral spirit in our land. We pray for the salvation of these artists who are being driven by unclean spirits in their performance.
We declare that many shall change their tune, many shall come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth. We call forth the soul of David Constantine Brooks (Mavado) in Jesus name, salvation for Anthony Moses Davis (Beenie Man) in Jesus name.
Rodney Basil Price (Bounty Killer) be saved in Jesus name, Sean Paul Ryan Francis Henriques be saved in Jesus name, Buju Banton be saved now, Miguel Orlando Collins (Sizzla) be saved now, Adidja Azim Palmer (Vybz Kartel), be saved in Jesus name, Oneal Bryan (Elephant Man) be saved now, Clifton George Bailey (Capleton) be saved now, Clifford Smith (Mr Vegas), be saved now, Orville Richard Burrell (Shaggy) be saved now, Reanno Devon Gordon (Busy Signal) be saved now.
We curse every practice under the guise of religion to draw the worshipers into demonic possessive trances.
We curse the gods of Revivalism, the gods of Pocomania, and every ancestral practice that invoke spirits. We pull down every evil imagination that exalt itself against the Spirit of the Almighty God. We pull down the the gods of the Rastafarian spirit, we pull down the god of the Mento spirit, we pull down the gods of the cultural dances in Bruckins, Dinki-mini, Ettu, Burru, Gerreh, Gumbay, Kumina, Maypole, Jonkunnu, Myal, Quadrille, Zella, Tambu.
These are not of God, these are worship to ancestral spirits, which is idolatry. Your word declares that you are a very jealous God, and we must worship no other god but you. You alone are God in this nation, and we will have no other god.
Almighty God, we stand in awe of you, and we pull down every cultural practice in religion, norms, values, and lifestyle that stand in conflict with your divine Word. Many of these practices that we unconsciously and ignorantly observe, we repent and ask your forgiveness.
Now that we are knowledgeable and aware of these idolatrous and evil practices, we have no excuse for receiving your wrath and judgement upon our lives and nation.
Therefore, we repent and turn from our wicked and ungodly ways. We repent on behalf of not only ourselves, but also on behalf of our ancestors who brought and maintain these habits. We also repent on behalf of more recent leaders who popularize Zion Revivalism and Pocomania. Most notably we repent on behalf of former Prime Minister, Edward Phillip George Seaga, who perform an abomination before the God of heaven by having a Revival table at Jamaica House.
We break this cure over our nation, and we declare our atmosphere cleanse by the shed blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. We will no longer be bound by these diabolic spirit cooking rituals that have the people of this nation in mental and spiritual captivity.
We also declare that organizations established by Mr Seaga, namely, the Jamaica Festival of Arts, the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission, be cleansed from every contamination and defilement of evil practices. Every individual connected to these bodies, especially the innocent ones, we break every curse form off their lives right now.
We stand on the authority of your word which declares in 2 Chronicles 7: 13- 16: “If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attend unto the prayer that is made in this place.
16 For now have I chosen and sanctified this house (nation), that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
This nation Jamaica shall be a place of beauty, a place where God is feared and worshiped, a place to raise godly families, work honestly, and develop the economy for the world to see that the blessings of God in favoured upon us.
This nation shall flourish, shall prosper, shall escape the judgement of God, because we shall repent and turn from evil, and turn to godliness, in Jesus name, so let it be.
