This morning, I was reading Job 29 and after reading verse 15 I felt led to pause and received this prophetic word from the LORD:
Job 29:15 Job said “I was eyes to the blind,and feet was I to the lame”
I heard the LORD say “Oh that my people would be eyes to the blind and feet to the lame, the helping hand to those who cannot hold a compass nor a lamp to find their way.
Where shall I find such as put away their agenda and seek to fulfill my call on their lives – the mission I have entrusted to them from the beginning of time.
The day is as night and men grope fearfully, distrusting one another, race wars, gender wars have spilled forth into the earth to overflowing. The gun and knife are as play things, toys in the carnival of life!
Awake! Rise up, do not sleep says the LORD. Those on the mission field, prepared for this time beware of the blinding and maiming powers, the forces of distraction that put my people to sleep, that stump on their compassion and zeal to serve.
Awake! Intercessors, voices of justice and peace Awake!

Father I pray for myself and stand in the gap for the church and anyone who has grieved your spirit in these areas you mention in the prophecy.
Forgive us your people who have fallen short. We acknowledge where we have erred; more self focused rather than seeking you first so as to fulfil what you prioritise – care and help towards the needy and vulnerable. We ask that you change our hearts and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Help us in our weakness LORD for we can do nothing nor change our ways without your help. We cry out for the world and seek to be agents of change, world transformers by the enabling might of the Holy Spirit.
Father, use us as your vessels, give us ideas and strategies where we can make a difference in relation to issues that grieve your heart (e.g. the poor/needy, race and gender conflicts). Teach us LORD to be a voice, your voice in the midst of a world flooded with injustice and contention.
We acknowledge that you have been working in our personal lives and in the nations and give you praise and thanks, however Father we pray for the mantel of intercession for issues on your agenda to increase upon your church and revive as anew with the compassion of Christ for the sake of our predestined mission and calling.
In Jesus name we pray Amen.
