一月份祈禱的要點

January prayer points

 

Prepare the Way

A Vision for Prayer Inspired by Isaiah 40:3-5

A messenger is calling out:

“In the desert prepare the way for the Lord. Make a straight road through it for our God. Every valley will be filled in. Every mountain and hill will be made level. The rough ground will be smoothed out. The rocky places will be made flat. Then the glory of the Lord will appear. And everyone will see it together. The Lord has spoken.”

Happy New Year! We are excited to commit the next year to Prepare the Way of King Jesus to come in Oman. We believe that God’s glory will be manifest in this land, and EVERYONE will see it! And so we do our part to ‘roll out the red carpet’ and prepare the way for the King to come. We do this by extravagant prayer, worship, and fasting on behalf of this beloved nation. Thank you for joining us!

Every month we will focus on a region of Oman (there are 11) and highlight key cities in the 63 districts. We will also pray through every town and village of this nation by name, in the Matthew 18:14 Focus section. Other prayer focuses will be various aspects of Omani society, culture, and people groups.

  • Pray for Oman to be changed because of our prayers.
  • Pray for a smooth road of access to the Gospel in this nation.
  • Pray for the stumbling blocks of lies and enemy strongholds to be removed.
  • Pray for the raising up of righteousness and justice in all spheres of society.
  • Pray for the Glory of the Lord to be manifest here, and for everyone to see it together!

Worship with Us! Prepare the Way by Bethel Music. Let us prepare the way for the King in Oman!

預備道路

 

以賽亞書40:3-5啟示的禱告異象

 

有人聲喊著說:「在曠野預備耶和華的路,在沙漠地修平我們神的道。一切山窪都要填滿,大小山岡都要削平。高高低低的要改為平坦,崎崎嶇嶇的必成為平原。耶和華的榮耀必然顯現,凡有血氣的必一同看見,因為這是耶和華親口說的。」

 

新年蒙福!我們很激動將明年致力於在阿曼迎來為君王耶穌預備道路(http://ptwo.app/)。我們相信神的榮耀必將在這片土地上彰顯,每一個人都將看到它!因此,我們盡自己的一份力量「隆重歡迎」,為君王的到來預備道路。我們預備的方式就是為這個心愛的國家殷切禱告,敬拜,禁食。感謝你的加入!

 

每個月,我們都將重點關注阿曼的一個行政區【以下或稱「地區」】(有11個),並突出強調63個轄區【以下或稱「區」】的重點城市。我們也會通過馬太福音18:14重點(經文),為這個國家的每一個城鎮和村莊提名禱告。其他禱告重點將涉及到阿曼社會、文化和人群的各個方面。

Overview of Oman

A Unique Corner of the Arab World

Capital: Muscat

Population: 4.6 million (2.5 million Omanis, 2.1 million expatriates)

Indigenous Languages/Ethnic Groups: Omani Arabic; Baluch; Zadjali, Baharinah, Farsi, Lawati, Zanzibari/Swahili, Kumzari, Shehi, Harsusi, Jebali, Mahri, Bathari, Hobyot

Religion: Ibadhi Islam (majority), Sunni Islam, Shi’a Islam. Expatriates are permitted to practice their own faith, but forbidden to proselytize.

Government: Sultanate/Absolute Monarchy. Ruled by the Al Bu Saidi family since 1744. Elected assembly which advises the Sultan, but does not legislate.

Oman is the easternmost part of the Arab world, at the mouth of the Persian Gulf and at the crossroads of South Asia, Persia, the Middle East, and East Africa.

Isolated from the rest of Arabia by the Empty Quarter desert and the Hajar Mountains, most of Oman has traditionally looked outward towards the sea. Omanis have been sailors and traders for thousands of years, and as such tend to have a cosmopolitan, tolerant mindset while at the same time retaining their conservative religion. Omani culture and society is not homogenous; rather it is a beautiful patchwork of Asian, Persian, African, and Arabian influences.

Watch this short Prayer Video on Oman.

  • Pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send more laborers to this nation. Pray for Kingdom workers to be given access to live there and to boldly share Light and Truth.
  • Pray for open doors for the Gospel into this beautifully unique nation. Pray for open hearts and minds of local Omanis, as well as for the resident expatriates from all over the world. Pray for multiplying movements of disciples and churches!

阿曼概況

 

阿拉伯世界的一個獨特角落

 

首府:馬斯喀特

人口:460萬(250萬阿曼人,210萬外籍人士)

本土語言/族群:阿曼阿拉伯;俾路支;扎賈利,巴哈里納,波斯,拉瓦蒂,桑吉巴/斯瓦希里,庫姆扎里,謝希,哈蘇西,傑巴厘,邁赫拉,巴薩瑞,霍比奧特

宗教:伊巴迪派伊斯蘭(多數派),遜尼派伊斯蘭,什葉派伊斯蘭。外籍人士被允許信奉他們自己的宗教,但禁止勸誘他人改變宗教信仰。

政府體制:蘇丹統治的國家/絕對君主制。自1744年起由賽義德家族統治。選舉產生的議會為蘇丹提供建議,但沒有權力制定法律。

 

阿曼位於阿拉伯世界的最東端,位於波斯灣的入海口,是南亞、波斯、中東和東非的十字路口。

 

由於阿曼被空域沙漠和哈賈爾山脈隔絕於阿拉伯其他地區,阿曼的大部分地區傳統上都朝外面向大海。阿曼人幾千年來一直是水手和商人,因此傾向於有一個胸懷世界的、寬容的心態,同時保留他們保守的宗教信仰。阿曼的文化和社會不是同質的;相反,它是亞洲、波斯、非洲和阿拉伯各種影響的美麗拼接。

 

觀看這個簡短的為阿曼的禱告視頻(https://youtu.be/iN1SSIo_2lU):

 

  • 向收穫之主禱告,派遣更多的工人到這個國家。禱告天國的工人能有機會在那裡生活,並勇敢地分享光和真理。
  • 禱告大門為福音敞開,讓福音進入這個有獨特之美的國家。禱告阿曼人敞開心胸,也為來自世界各地的外籍人士禱告。為門徒和教會的倍增運動禱告!_____________________________________

Sultanate of Oman

Authority, Power, and Strength

'Sultan' (Arabic سلطان) is a royal title with various historical meanings. It is an Arabic title meaning "strength", "authority", "rulership" and "dictatorship", derived from the Arabic root سلطة (sulṭah), meaning "authority" or "power". Later, it came to be used as the title of certain rulers over Muslim lands who claimed almost full sovereignty in practical terms, without claiming the overall caliphate. It is similar to a king, but usually also carries religious significance. Currently only Oman and Brunei are national Sultanates, while there are smaller sultanates within the nations of Malaysia and Indonesia.

The Sultan is more than just a figurehead, he is the absolute monarch. Any and all legislation comes as a royal decree. Under Sultan Qaboos (ruled 1970-2020), the Sultan was also the Prime Minister, Minister of Defense, Minister of Finance, Minister of Foreign Affairs, commander of the military, and chairman of the Central Bank. Sultan Haitham (ruling 2020-present) has since divested some of that power to others, and is no longer the Minister of Finance nor Minister of Foreign Affairs. Nevertheless, his power is still thorough and wide-ranging.

Pray much for others; plead for God’s mercy upon them; give thanks for all He is going to do for them.

Pray in this way for [the Sultan] and all others who are in authority over us, or are in places of high responsibility...

I Timothy 2:1-2, TLB 

Pray that God would:

  • Open the heart of the Sultan to hear and respond to the Gospel message. — Acts 16:14
  • Help the Sultan know that his office was granted to him by God. — Daniel 2:19-22
  • Help the Sultan to accept wise counsel. — Proverbs 11:14; 15:22
  • Teach the Sultan to trust in You. — Psalm 21:7
  • Protect the Sultan from the influence of the evil one. — 2 Thessalonians 3:3

阿曼蘇丹國

 

權柄、權力和力量

 

「蘇丹」(阿拉伯語سلطان)是一個具有各種歷史意義的皇家頭銜。這是一個阿拉伯語頭銜,意思是「力量」、「權柄」、「統治權」和「獨裁權」,來源於阿拉伯語詞根سلطة(sulṭah),意思是「權柄」或「權力」。後來,它被用作某些統治穆斯林土地的統治者的頭銜,這些統治者從實際角度擁有幾乎完整主權,雖然並不擁有總體上的哈里發地位。它與君王相似,但通常也具有宗教意義。目前只有阿曼和汶萊是國家性的蘇丹國,而馬來西亞和印尼內部也有較小的蘇丹統治的領土。

 

蘇丹不僅僅是一個有名無實的領袖,他是絕對君主制度下的統治者。任何和所有的立法都是皇家法令。在蘇丹卡布斯(1970-2020年統治)時期,蘇丹還擔任過首相、國防部長、財政部長、外交部長、武裝部隊最高統帥和中央銀行負責人。自那以後,蘇丹海瑟姆(2020年至今執政)將部分權力剝離並移交給他人,不再擔任財政部長和外交部長。盡管如此,他的權力仍然是全面而廣泛的。

 

我勸你第一要為萬人懇求、禱告、代求、祝謝,為君王和一切在位的【蘇丹】,也該如此…

 

提摩太前書2:1-2

 

禱告,神會:

 

  • 打開蘇丹的心,使他能聽見福音的信息並作出回應。-使徒行傳16:14
  • 幫助蘇丹認識到他的職分是神賜給他的。-但以理書2:19-22
  • 幫助蘇丹接受明智的忠告。-箴言11:14;15:22
  • 教導蘇丹學信靠你。-詩篇21:7
  • 保護蘇丹不受惡者的影響。-帖撒羅尼迦後書3:3

Ad-Dakhiliyah Region

Inside Oman's Interior

Ad-Dakhiliyah (الداخلية), or 'the interior', lays in the inside of the Hajar mountains, geographically isolated from the coastal regions. For centuries it was ruled by Ibadhi imams as a distinct government from the Sultan in Muscat, and only became part of the Sultanate in 1959. It is the heart of conservative religion and culture, and home to majestic mountains, green date palm oases, and historic forts. 

Nizwa is the region's ancient capital and cradle of conservatism, and Bahla is another significant city known for its occult power and practices. Bahla's fort is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and Nizwa's fort is the most-visited tourist site in the nation. The Daris Falaj (irrigation canal) system is the water of life in the region, and likewise a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This region has 9 districts; we will pray for them throughout the month.

Ad-Dakhiliyah is the cultural and spiritual heart of the nation. As it goes here, it goes with the of the nation. Pray for breakthrough in this strategic region!

  • There has been much Gospel witness in this area over the years, but there currently is very little Christian presence now. Please pray for more Harvest Laborers to come into this region once again.
  • There is a sense “hiddenness" in this region—villages tucked high away in mountains, walled fortresses, geographic isolation, occult darkness. Pray for His light and His love to pierce the darkness and pursue the lost.

達希利亞行政區

 

走進阿曼的腹地

 

達希利亞(https://maps.app.goo.gl/VZ7WiDJ6dhAR8wc18)(الداخلية),或稱「腹地」,位於哈賈爾山脈的裡面,在地理上與沿海地區隔絕。多個世紀以來,它一直由伊巴迪派伊瑪目統治,是一個獨立於馬斯喀特的蘇丹的政府,直到1959年才成為蘇丹統治的國家的一部分。它是保守宗教和文化的中心,同時也擁有雄偉的山脈、綠色的椰棗樹綠洲和歷史悠久的堡壘。

 

尼茲瓦是該地區的古老首府和保守主義的搖籃,而拜赫萊是另一個重要的城市,以其神秘力量和習俗而聞名。拜赫萊的堡壘是聯合國教科文組織的世界遺產,而尼茲瓦的堡壘是全國遊客最多的旅遊景點。達里斯灌溉渠系統是該地區的生命之水,同樣也是聯合國教科文組織的世界遺產。

 

這個行政區有9個轄區;我們整個月都會為他們禱告。

 

達希利亞是國家的文化和屬靈中心。這裡的情況足以左右整個國家的走向。為這一戰略行政區取得突破禱告!

 

  • 多年來,這個地區一直有很多福音見證,但是目前基督徒的存在影響力非常少。請為更多的收莊稼工人禱告,讓他們再次進入這個地區。
  • 這個地區有一種「隱蔽」的感覺-村莊隱藏在高山上,有圍牆的堡壘,地理上的隔絕,神秘的黑暗。禱告祂的光和祂的愛穿透黑暗,尋得失喪的人。

Nizwa

Heart of Traditional Omani Culture

Nizwa (نِزْوَى) is the largest city (population 64,599) in and capital of Ad-Dakhiliyah Region, and also the seat of Nizwa district (population 131,763). It was also once the capital of the Omani Imamate (religious government), before joining the rest of Sultanate of Muscat and becoming the modern Sultanate of Oman. It is one of the oldest cities in the nation and has been a center of trade, religion, education, and art for centuries. It was formerly a center for Islamic learning, and is the traditional heart of conservative Ibadhi Islam. Some historians suggest the name was derived from an Arabic verb (انزوا) which means being alone; others say that the city was named after an old water spring.

Nizwa acquired its importance because of its central location at the base of the Western Hajar Mountains. Set amid a lush oasis of date palms, it is strategically located at the crossroads of routes linking the interior with Muscat and the central and southern regions. Nizwa is a center for date growing and is the central commercial hub for the area, hosting a lively marketplace on Fridays. Although isolated from outsiders for centuries, it is now one of the largest tourist attractions, with its impressive fort complex and beautiful landscapes. It also has the UNESCO world heritage site, the Daris Falaj (irrigation canal) system.

Watch this short Prayer Video on Nizwa.

We will pray for the cities and districts of Oman using the G.E.H.A.R.P. model. Let's pray that:

  • Glory of God. That God would be glorified and exalted and worshipped in Nizwa. (Habakkuk 2:14, Psalm 138:4-5)
  • Expansion of the Kingdom. That many people in Nizwa will come to know Jesus, and that communities of believers will be planted, that movements will be ignited. (Luke 1:32-33, 2 Cor 10:15-16)
  • Hearts and Minds. That spiritual blindness and bondages will be lifted from the minds of the people in Nizwa, and that hearts will be stirred with hunger for Jesus and truth. (2 Cor 4:4, Luke 24:45)
  • Authority. Pray with the authority that Jesus gives you over principalities, powers and spiritual strongholds in Nizwa. Pray that God would release prophetic words over the land, releasing visions, dreams, signs and wonders in Jesus’ name. (Matthew 18:18, 2 Cor 10:4)
  • Revival. That any believers living Nizwa would be awakened by the Holy Spirit, have love and passion stirred in them for the lost, and rise to meet the need in their neighborhood. (Luke 10:2, Ezekiel 37:10)
  • Provision. That God would bring His provision and blessing to all those in need in Nizwa. That He would show His eternal kindness, demonstrate the blessing of His Kingdom, and cause His people to prosper. (Philippians 4:19, Jeremiah 29:7)

尼茲瓦

 

傳統阿曼文化的中心

 

尼茲瓦(نِزْوَى)是達希利亞行政區最大的城市(人口6萬4599)和首府,也是尼茲瓦轄區的中心地帶(人口13萬1763)。在加入馬斯喀特蘇丹國並成為現代阿曼蘇丹國之前,它也曾經是阿曼伊斯蘭教長國(宗教政府)的首府。它是該國最古老的城市之一,多個世紀以來一直是貿易、宗教、教育和藝術的中心。它以前是一個伊斯蘭學習中心,是保守的伊巴迪派伊斯蘭的傳統中心。一些歷史學家認為,這個名字來源於一個阿拉伯動詞(انزوا),意思是「獨處」;還有人說,這座城市是以一個古老的泉水命名的。

 

尼茲瓦之所以重要,是因為它位於西哈賈爾山脈底部的中央位置。它坐落在一塊鬱鬱蔥蔥的椰棗樹綠洲中,在戰略地位上位於將內陸與馬斯喀特和中部和南部地區連接起來的多條路線的交叉路口。尼茲瓦是椰棗種植中心,也是該地區的中央商業樞紐,每週五都會舉辦熱鬧的集市。雖然與外界隔絕了多個世紀,但它憑藉令人印象深刻的堡壘建築群和美麗風光,現在是最大的旅遊勝地之一。這裡還有聯合國教科文組織世界遺產-達里斯灌溉渠系統。

 

觀看這個簡短的為尼茲瓦的禱告視頻(https://youtu.be/Vgpn6GKWCLU)。

 

我們將使用G.E.H.A.R.P.模式為阿曼的城市和轄區禱告。讓我們禱告:

 

  • 神的榮耀。神將在尼茲瓦得榮耀,尊崇和敬拜。(哈巴谷書2:14;詩篇138:4-5)
  • 神國的擴展。尼茲瓦的許多人將會認識耶穌,信徒群體將會扎根,激起植堂運動。(路加福音1:32-33;哥林多後書10:15-16)
  • 心靈與頭腦。尼茲瓦人民的頭腦中,屬靈的盲目和束縛將被破除,他們的心靈將萌發對耶穌和真理的渴慕。(哥林多後書4:4,路加福音24:45)
  • 權柄。用耶穌給你的權柄禱告,這權柄勝過尼茲瓦的公國統治權、權勢和屬靈的營壘。求神奉耶穌的名在地上賜下先知的話語,賜下異象、異夢、神蹟和奇事。(馬太福音18:18,哥林多後書10:4)
  • 復興。願任何生活在尼茲瓦的信徒都能被聖靈喚醒,對失喪之人的愛和熱心在他們裡面被激發,並起來滿足他們鄰舍的需要。(路加福音10:2,以西結書37:10)
  • 供應。願神將祂的供應和福氣帶給尼茲瓦所有有需要的人。祂要顯示祂永遠的慈愛,顯明祂國度的賜福,使祂的百姓興旺。(腓立比書4:19,耶利米書29:7)

Oman's Names: Majan

A look back at the historical names of this region

The land currently known as the Sultanate of Oman has had several names over the centuries, many of which are still in common use around the country. Let's explore these names and their spiritual significance.

Majan/Magan/Makkan. Probably the first recorded name of this land is Majan, of Sumerian origin, around 2300 BC, and was mentioned in ancient texts until around 500 BC. Majan probably means 'Land of Copper', as this region was an early producer and smelter of copper ore. The time of Majan roughly corresponds with the Bronze and Iron Age communities of the region, such as the Hafit and Umm An-Naar cultures.

The Sumerians lived in Mesopotamia (present-day Iraq), including Abraham's home of Ur, and traded extensively up and down the Arabian Gulf waters. The people of Majan provided them with copper and valuable black stone like gabbro and diorite which was used for carving statues. In return, the people of Majan received bitumen, which they used for tarring and water-proofing their advanced sailing ships.

Majan came under the rule of the Medo-Persian empire, probably during the rule of Cyrus the Great around 550 BC.

Declaration for Majan

God’s Message came to me: “As men gather silver, copper, iron, lead, and tin into a furnace and blow fire on it to melt it down, so in my wrath I’ll gather you and melt you down. I’ll blow on you with the fire of my wrath to melt you down in the furnace. As silver is melted down, you’ll be melted down. That should get through to you. Then you’ll recognize that I, God, have let my wrath loose on you.’” Ezekiel 22:20-22 (MSG)

"So Moses made a snake of fiery copper and put it on top of a flagpole. Anyone bitten by a snake who then looked at the copper snake lived." Numbers 21:9 (MSG)

"In the same way that Moses lifted the serpent in the desert so people could have something to see and then believe, it is necessary for the Son of Man to be lifted up—and everyone who looks up to him, trusting and expectant, will gain a real life, eternal life." John 3:14-15 (MSG)

  • We bless this land once known as Majan to be refined and purified, just as copper ore is smelted.
  • We bless their impurities and unrighteousness to be burned away, and to repent and be saved.
  • We bless them to turn from their unrighteousness and to look upon the Healer, the lifted-up Son of Man, and to find eternal life!

目前被稱為阿曼蘇丹國的這片土地在多個世紀以來有過幾個名字,其中許多仍然在全國範圍內普遍使用。讓我們來探討這些名字及其背後的屬靈含義。

 

Majan/Magan/Makkan。這片土地最早有記錄的名字可能是Majan(馬漢)(https://frontiers.us6.list-manage.com/track/click?u=ae7688ec28a5fe7621edf0f7c&id=a2f78ca01b&e=5f1ea9575a),起源於蘇美爾人,大約在公元前2300年,直到公元前500年左右在古代文獻中提到。Majan的意思可能是「銅的土地」,因為這個地區是銅礦石的早期出產地和冶煉地。Majan的時間大致與該地區的青銅和鐵器時代群體相對應,例如哈菲特和烏姆納爾文化。

 

蘇美爾人生活在美索不達米亞地區(今伊拉克),包括亞伯拉罕的家鄉吾珥,並在阿拉伯海灣水域進行廣泛貿易。馬漢人為他們提供了銅和珍貴的黑石,比如輝長岩和閃長岩,這些石頭用於雕刻雕像。作為回報,馬漢人得到了瀝青,他們用瀝青塗抹他們先進的帆船來保持防水。

 

馬漢在公元前550年左右,可能在居魯士大帝統治期間,受到了米多波斯帝國的統治。

 

給Majan的宣告

 

耶和華的話臨到我說:「…人怎樣將銀、銅、鐵、鉛、錫聚在爐中,吹火熔化,照樣,我也要發怒氣和忿怒,將你們聚集放在城中熔化你們。我必聚集你們,把我烈怒的火吹在你們身上,你們就在其中熔化。銀子怎樣熔化在爐中,你們也必照樣熔化在城中,你們就知道我耶和華是將忿怒倒在你們身上了。」(以西結書22:20-22)

 

「摩西便製造一條銅蛇,掛在杆子上,凡被蛇咬的,一望這銅蛇,就活了。」(民數記21:9)

 

「摩西在曠野怎樣舉蛇,人子也必照樣被舉起來,叫一切信他的都得永生。」(約翰福音3:14-15)

 

  • 我們祝福這片曾經被稱為Majan的土地被精煉和淨化,就像銅礦石被冶煉一樣。
  • 我們祝福他們的不潔和不義被燒掉,他們將悔改並得救。
  • 我們祝福他們轉離不義,仰望那醫治者,那被舉起來的人子,並且得著永生!

與我們一同敬拜!《煉金之人的火》(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQclw7Ptxwc),葡萄園敬拜團。願這片古老的馬漢土地被煉金之人淨化!

Oman's Names: Omana

A look back at Oman's ancient names

The land currently known as the Sultanate of Oman has had several names over the centuries, many of which are still in common use around us. Let's explore these names and their spiritual significance.

Omana/Omanan. The current name of Oman is most likely related to the term that the Greeks and Romans used to refer to this land. Pliny the Elder, a Roman scholar in the 1st century AD referenced 'Omana' in his geographical writings. Ptolemy, a 2nd century AD scholar, referred to 'Omanan' in his writings and maps (pictured above). It is thought that both names refer to Sohar, which was the prominent city at that time.

The meaning of 'Oman' is debated. Some say it refers to a place in Yemen which the early Arab tribes migrated from. Others say it refers to a person/founder, such as Oman bin Ibrahim Al-Khalil or Oman bin Qahtan. The Arabic word is thought to refer to 'settled' people, as opposed to the Bedouin. Literally, the root ع م ن (ʿ-m-n) means, "to settle or remain", "to dwell", "a place where one enters and chooses to stay", "to be abiding or a lasting settlement", "a plain or easy country".

Arabia Felix. The Romans referred in general to the larger area of the southern Arabian Peninsula (Yemen, Southern Oman) as 'Arabia Felix'. Beyond "happy", Felix means blessed, fortunate, or fertile and referred to the abundance of rain and greenery found there.

Declaration for Omana/Arabia Felix

"May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love." Ephesians 3:17 (AMPC)

The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish like the palm tree [be long-lived, stately, upright, useful, and fruitful]; they shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic, stable, durable, and incorruptible]. Planted in the house of the Lord, they shall flourish in the courts of our God. [Growing in grace] they shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap [of spiritual vitality] and [rich in the] verdure [of trust, love, and contentment]. Psalm 92:12-14 (AMPC)

  • We bless this land once known as Omana to be rooted deeply and dwelling securely in Christ, full of love and faith! 
  • We bless this land once known as Arabia Felix to flourish in the presence of God, being fruitful and full of life and joy!

Worship with us!: Rooted by Kerrie Roberts. May the people of this land once known as Omana be rooted deeply in the love of God!

阿曼的名字:Omana

 

回顧阿曼的古代名字

 

目前被稱為阿曼蘇丹國的這片土地在多個世紀以來有過幾個名字,其中許多仍然在全國範圍內普遍使用。讓我們來探討這些名字及其背後的屬靈含義。

 

Omana/Omanan。阿曼(https://frontiers.us6.list-manage.com/track/click?u=ae7688ec28a5fe7621edf0f7c&id=b1fd7869bb&e=5f1ea9575a)現在的名字很可能與希臘人和羅馬人用來指代這片土地的詞語有關。公元1世紀的羅馬學者老普林尼在他的地理著作中提到了「Omana」。公元2世紀的學者托勒密在他的著作和地圖中提到了「Omanan」(見上圖)。人們認為,這兩個名字都指的是當時的著名城市索哈爾。

 

「阿曼」的含義是有爭議的。有人說它指的是也門的一個地方,早期阿拉伯部落從那裡遷移過來。其他人說它指的是一個人/創始人,比如阿曼·本·易卜拉欣·哈利勒或阿曼·本·卡坦。這個阿拉伯詞被認為是指「定居」的人,與貝都因人相反。從字面上看(https://frontiers.us6.list-manage.com/track/click?u=ae7688ec28a5fe7621edf0f7c&id=c927dfee3f&e=5f1ea9575a),詞根「ع م ن 」(-m-n) 的意思是「定居或停留」,「居住」,「一個人進入並選擇停留的地方」,「逗留或持久定居」,「一個平坦或安逸的國家」。

 

阿拉伯菲力克斯。一般而言羅馬人把阿拉伯半島南部(也門、阿曼南部)的大片地區稱為「阿拉伯菲力克斯」。除了「快樂」之外,菲力克斯還有「受祝福」、「吉利」或「富饒」的意思,指的是那裡雨水充沛、綠意盎然。

 

給Omana/Arabia Felix的宣告

 

「使基督因你們的信,【真正地】住(定居,逗留,建立他永久的家)在你們心裡,叫你們的愛心有根有基。」(以弗所書3:17)

 

「【不會妥協的】義人要發旺如棕樹【要長命,莊嚴,正直,有益,多結果子】,生長如黎巴嫩的香柏樹【威嚴、牢固、堅韌不拔、不受腐蝕】。他們栽於耶和華的殿中,發旺在我們神的院裡。他們【在恩典中成長】年老的時候仍要結果子,要滿了【屬靈活力的】汁漿(因為充滿信靠、愛心和知足)而常發青。」(詩篇92:12-14)

 

  • 我們祝福這片曾經被稱為Omana的土地深深地扎根在基督裡,充滿愛心和信心地安穩住在基督裡!
  • 我們祝福這片曾經被稱為Arabia Felix的土地在神的面前興旺發展,結出累累碩果,漫遊生命和喜樂!

Oman's Names: Mazuna

A look back at Oman's ancient names

The land currently known as the Sultanate of Oman has had several names over the centuries, many of which are still in common use around us. Let's explore these names and their spiritual significance.

Mazun/Mazoon. The Sassanid (neo-Persian) empire ruled over much of the Middle East and Asia from approximately 200 AD until the Islamic conquest around 650 AD. They called this province 'Mazun' which means a land of abundant water. The Arabic word connotes clouds, rainfall, and flowing water, and refers to the greater water resources that existed in past centuries, and subsequent agriculture and greenery.

The early church diocese in Sohar was known as Bet Mazunaye, reflecting the name of the region in the 3rd-5th centuries.

As the 11th-century Omani historian Al 'Awtabi described it: "Mazun, oh friends, is a beautiful country, a country rich in fields and palm trees, of pastures and inexhaustible sources."

Declaration for Mazun:

“Rain down, O heavens, from above, Let the clouds pour down righteousness [all the blessings of God]; Let the earth open up, let salvation bear fruit, And righteousness spring up with it; I, the Lord, have created it." Isaiah 45:8 (AMP)

  • We bless this land once known as Mazun to receive the rain of God's blessings-in both natural and supernatural realms.
  • We bless this land to bear the fruit of salvation, and reap the abundant harvest!

Worship with us!: Rain Down Your Glory by Planet Shakers. May God’s glory rain down on this land once known as Mazun!

阿曼的名字:Mazuna

 

回顧阿曼的古代名字

 

目前被稱為阿曼蘇丹國的這片土地在多個世紀以來有過幾個名字,其中許多仍然在全國範圍內普遍使用。讓我們來探討這些名字及其背後的屬靈含義。

 

Mazun/Mazoon。薩珊王朝(新波斯)帝國從公元200年左右統治了中東和亞洲的大部分地區,直到公元650年左右被伊斯蘭征服。他們稱這個省為「Mazun」(瑪尊),意思是「水源豐富的土地」。這個阿拉伯詞(https://frontiers.us6.list-manage.com/track/click?u=ae7688ec28a5fe7621edf0f7c&id=acbce39656&e=5f1ea9575a)還有雲彩、降雨和流水的言外之意,指的是過去多個世紀存在過的更大的水資源,以及後來的農業和綠色植物。

 

索哈爾的早期教會主管教區被稱為貝特瑪尊納耶,反映了該地區在3-5世紀的名字。

 

正如11世紀阿曼歷史學家奧塔比所描述的那樣:「朋友們,瑪尊是一個美麗的國家,一個擁有富饒田野和棕櫚樹、牧場和取之不盡的資源的國家。」

 

對Mazun的宣告:

 

「諸天哪,自上而滴,穹蒼降下公義【神的一切福氣】,地面開裂,產出救恩,使公義一同發生,這都是我耶和華所造的。」(以賽亞書45:8)

 

  • 我們祝福這片曾經被稱為Mazun的土地,讓它在自然和超自然領域接受神的賜福之雨。
  • 我們祝福這片土地結出救恩的果實,收穫豐盛的成果!

Identity and Purpose

What's in a Name?

Everything! Biblically, a name confers identity, and relationship. It describes one's purpose and sets destiny. There is power and authority in naming someone or something, just as God named Adam, and gave him authority to name the animals. God changes names as part of salvation history-Abraham and Sarah, Jacob, Peter, Paul to name a few.

So it is no accident that Oman has received her various names over the centuries. We bless this nation to walk in the power, authority, and purpose of its names!

Declare This:

But now, O [Majan], listen to the Lord who created you. O [Mazun], the one who formed you says:

“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are Mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. (Isaiah 43:1-2)

We bless Oman to walk in the confidence of her names:

  • Majan: as a nation that is refined and purified
  • Omana: as a nation that settled and secure
  • Mazoon: as a nation that is abundant and flourishing

身份與目標意義

 

名字裡包含什麼?

 

一切!聖經中,名字賦予身份和關係。它描述了一個人的目標意義並為他埋下人生定數。給某人或某物命名是帶有能力和權柄的,就像神給亞當命名,並賦予他給動物命名的權柄一樣。神在救贖的歷史中變動了一些名字-亞伯拉罕【曾叫「亞伯蘭」】、撒拉【曾叫「撒萊」】、雅各【改叫「以色列」】、彼得【曾叫「西門」】、保羅【曾叫「掃羅」】等等。

 

因此,多個世紀以來,阿曼得到了各種各樣的名字,這絕非偶然。我們祝福這個國家行在它名字的力量、權柄和目標意義中!

 

宣告:

 

【瑪尊】啊,創造你的耶和華;【瑪尊】啊,造成你的那位,現在如此說:「你不要害怕!因為我救贖了你。我曾提你的名召你,你是屬我的。你從水中經過,我必與你同在;你趟過江河,水必不漫過你;你從火中行過,必不被燒,火焰也不著在你身上。」(以賽亞書43:1-2)

 

我們祝福阿曼前行,相信她的名字;

 

  • Majan:代表一個被精煉和淨化的國家
  • Omana:代表一個安定和穩固的國家
  • Mazoon:代表一個富饒和繁榮的國家

與我們一同敬拜!《他知我名》(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7owFiihXgg),塔莎·科布斯·倫納德。願阿曼人知道,神知道他們的名字,並且深切地看顧他們。

Jubilee

50 years of Sultan Qaboos and Modern Oman

Today marks the passing of Sultan Qaboos, the founder and father of modern Oman. He ruled for nearly 50 years, from July 23, 1970- January 10, 2020.

Sultan Qaboos bin Said came to power in a bloodless coup, overthrowing his father in 1970. Although reigning as an absolute monarch, he benevolently and wisely developed the nation into a modern state. He was briefly married but had no known heirs. He had suffered medical problems for several years, and there was much speculation about who would succeed him. Thankfully, the transition was smooth and Haitham bin Tariq, his cousin, was chosen to be the next Sultan.

Watch this short prayer video about Sultan Qaboos and Oman’s government here.

At the time, many had sensed that 2020 was to be a Year of Jubilee for Oman, with 50 years of the Sultan’s reign. In the natural realm, the Sultan’s passing, 40 days of mourning, followed shortly by Covid shutdowns all seemed nothing like Jubilee. However, we believe that significant things still happened spiritually in the nation, and the promises of Isaiah 61 will still be fulfilled! 

Declare this over Oman:

The Spirit of the Lord, the Eternal, is on Me. The Lord has appointed Me for a special purpose. He has anointed Me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent Me to repair broken hearts, and to declare to those who are held captive and bound in prison, “Be free from your imprisonment!” He has sent Me to announce the year of jubilee, the season of the Eternal’s favor: for our enemies it will be a day of God’s wrath; for those who mourn it will be a time of comfort.

(Isaiah 61:1-2, The Voice)

  • Jesus says He is the fulfillment of this passage (cf. Luke 4:17-21), and we declare that Jesus is Oman's Jubilee!

禧年【五十年周年紀念】

 

蘇丹卡布斯和現代阿曼的50年

 

今天是蘇丹卡布斯去世的日子,他是現代阿曼的締造者和創始人。他執政近50年,從1970年7月23日到2020年1月10日。

 

1970年,蘇丹卡布斯·本·賽義德(https://frontiers.us6.list-manage.com/track/click?u=ae7688ec28a5fe7621edf0f7c&id=26202722c6&e=5f1ea9575a)在一場不流血的政變中上台,推翻了他的父親。雖然作為絕對君主統治,但他仁慈而明智地將這個國家發展成為一個現代國家。他的婚姻很短暫,但沒有已知的繼承人。他多年來一直受到健康問題的困擾,人們對誰將接替他有很多猜測。值得慶倖的是,過渡很順利,他的堂弟海瑟姆·本·塔里克被選為下一任蘇丹。

 

觀看這段關於蘇丹卡布斯和阿曼政府的禱告視頻(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bO4csxPyyt4)。

 

當時,許多人都感覺到2020年將是阿曼的禧年,是蘇丹統治的50年。在現實的自然界,蘇丹去世,40天的哀悼,隨後不久是因為新冠疫情而來的停工,似乎一切都不像是禧年。然而,我們相信有重大意義的事情仍然在這個國家發生,以賽亞書61章的應許仍然會實現!

 

在阿曼宣告:

 

主耶和華的靈在我身上,因為耶和華用膏膏我,叫我傳好信息給謙卑的人,差遣我醫好傷心的人,報告被擄的得釋放,被囚的出監牢;報告耶和華的恩年,和我們神報仇的日子,安慰一切悲哀的人。(以賽亞書61:1-2)

 

  • 耶穌說他應驗了這段經文(參見路加福音4:17-21),我們宣告耶穌就是阿曼的禧年!

Accession Day

Blessing Sultan Haitham

Today marks the accession of the current Sultan, Haitham bin Tariq. He came to power in 2020, upon the death of his predecessor, Sultan Qaboos bin Said. Both Sultan Qaboos and Sultan Haitham are family members of the Al Busaidi dynasty, which has ruled Oman (or portions of it) since 1749.

Sultan Qaboos (ruling from 1970-2020) catapulted Oman into the modern age with its oil wealth and fathered the nation like his own child. Loyalty and affection towards Qaboos was—and still is—high. Haitham, Sultan Qaboos's cousin, was his chosen successor, as Qaboos had no heir. Sultan Haitham has pledged to continue forward in the spirit of Qaboos, while at the same time has been making some significant political and economic reforms.

Sultan Haitham (b. in 1954) is married to Ahad, and they have two sons, Theyazin (the Crown Prince and Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth) and Bilarab (an architect), and two daughters, Thuraya and Omaima.

Haitham went to university at Oxford, and has been described as 'outward-looking and Western-oriented.' His government experience is wide, from heading the Oman Football Association, to serving in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to being Minister of Heritage and Culture, to chairing the 'Oman 2040' economic development committee.

Pray for Sultan Haitham, that God would:

  • Give the Sultan discretion, foresight, and understanding in making decisions. — 1 Chronicles 22:12
  • Enable the Sultan to make decisions according to God’s truth. — Proverbs 2:10-11
  • Protect the Sultan from harm, and bless and protect his family. — Psalm 21:11; Ezra 6:10
  • Enable the Sultan to carry out his duties with humility toward You and toward others. — 1 Peter 5:5
  • Give the Sultan the courage to do the right thing even when urged to do the wrong thing. — Proverbs 2:11–15
  • Give the Sultan a tender heart of compassion toward those he leads and serves. — Colossians 3:12

Worship with us!: Authority by Elevation Worship. The ultimate authority in Oman belongs to God, and we bless the Sultan to come under that authority!

即位紀念日

 

祝福蘇丹海瑟姆

 

今天是現任蘇丹海瑟姆·本·塔里克登基的日子。他於2020年在前任蘇丹卡布斯·本·賽義德去世後上台。蘇丹卡布斯和蘇丹海瑟姆都是布賽迪王朝的家族成員,該王朝自1749年以來一直統治著阿曼(或其部分地區)。

 

蘇丹卡布斯(1970年至2020年在位)憑藉阿曼石油財富將阿曼帶入現代化時代,像對待自己的孩子一樣對待這個國家。人們過去對卡布斯有崇高的忠誠和愛戴,現在仍然是。由於卡布斯沒有繼承人,卡布斯的堂弟海瑟姆成為他選擇的繼任者。蘇丹海瑟姆承諾繼續本著卡布斯的思想前進,同時進行一些重大的政治和經濟改革。

 

蘇丹海瑟姆(生於1954年)與阿哈德結婚,他們有兩個兒子,特亞謹是王儲兼文化、體育和青年部長,比拉亞伯是一名建築師,他們還有兩個女兒,圖拉亞和奧梅瑪。

 

海瑟姆曾就讀於牛津大學,被形容為「外向型、西方化」。他的政府治理經驗豐富,從領導阿曼足球協會,到在外交部任職,再到擔任遺產和文化部長,再到擔任「阿曼2040」經濟發展委員會主席。

 

為蘇丹海瑟姆禱告,求神會:

 

  • 在蘇丹做決定時給予他判斷力、遠見和認知。-歷代志上22:12
  • 使蘇丹能夠根據神的真理做出決定。-箴言2:10-11
  • 保護蘇丹免受傷害,賜福並保護他的家人。-詩篇21:11;以斯拉記6:10
  • 在蘇丹履行職責時使他能夠以謙卑的態度對待你和他人。-彼得前書5:5
  • 給蘇丹勇氣去做正確的事,即使被慫恿去做錯誤的事。-箴言2:11-15

Adam

Fertile Ground

Adam (Arabicأدم not the same as Adam - the prophet آدم) is a town in the Ad-Dakhiliyah region, and seat of the district of Adam (population 28,163). The history of the district of Adam dates back to pre-Islamic times. This area has several archeological sites, where you can see ancient forts, mud-brick homes, mosques and deserted traditional markets. One site, Harrat Al Jamii, contains the house of Imam Ahmed bin Said Busaidi (1744-1783): the founder of the Al Busaidi dynasty and the ancestor of the current ruler of Oman, Sultan Haitham bin Tariq.

Adam has several meanings in Arabic but most likely means ‘the fertile land’. It is the last green oasis before entering the vast desert of the Empty Quarter.

Pray for the City and District of Adam:

  • Glory of God. That God would be glorified and exalted and worshipped in Adam. (Habakkuk 2:14, Psalm 138:4-5)
  • Expansion of the Kingdom. That many people in Adam will come to know Jesus, and that communities of believers will be planted, that movements will be ignited. (Luke 1:32-33, 2 Cor 10:15-16)
  • Hearts and Minds. That spiritual blindness and bondages will be lifted from the minds of the people in Adam, and that hearts will be stirred with hunger for Jesus and truth. (2 Cor 4:4, Luke 24:45)
  • Authority. Pray with the authority that Jesus gives you over principalities, powers and spiritual strongholds in Adam. Pray that God would release prophetic words over the land, releasing visions, dreams, signs and wonders in Jesus’ name. (Matthew 18:18, 2 Cor 10:4)
  • Revival. That any believers living Adam would be awakened by the Holy Spirit, have love and passion stirred in them for the lost, and rise to meet the need in their neighborhood. (Luke 10:2, Ezekiel 37:10)
  • Provision. That God would bring His provision and blessing to all those in need in Adam. That He would show His eternal kindness, demonstrate the blessing of His Kingdom, and cause His people to prosper. (Philippians 4:19, Jeremiah 29:7)

亞當

 

肥沃的土壤

 

亞當(https://goo.gl/maps/jC9Ww63samHP5hnJ6)(阿拉伯語أدم與作為先知آدم的亞當不同),是達希利亞行政區的一個城鎮,也是亞當區(人口2萬8163)的中心地帶。亞當區的歷史可以追溯到前伊斯蘭時代。這個地區有幾處考古遺址(https://www.arabnews.com/news/476511),在那裡你可以看到古老的堡壘、泥磚房屋、清真寺和廢棄的傳統市集。其中一個遺址,哈拉特賈米,包括伊瑪目艾哈邁德·本·賽義德·布賽迪(1744-1783)的房子:他是布賽迪王朝的創始人,也是阿曼現任統治者蘇丹海瑟姆·本·塔里克的祖先。

 

在阿拉伯語中,「亞當」有多種含義,但最有可能的意思是「肥沃的土地」。這是進入廣闊的空域沙漠之前的最後一片綠洲(https://www.rahhalah.com/adam-town-oman/)。

 

為亞當這個城市和轄區禱告:

 

  • 神的榮耀。神將會在亞當得榮耀,尊崇和敬拜。(哈巴谷書2:14;詩篇138:4-5)
  • 神國的擴展。亞當的許多人將會認識耶穌,信徒群體將會扎根,激起植堂運動。(路加福音1:32-33;哥林多後書10:15-16)
  • 心靈與頭腦。亞當人民的頭腦中,屬靈的盲目和束縛將被破除,他們的心靈將萌發對耶穌和真理的渴慕。(哥林多後書4:4,路加福音24:45)
  • 權柄。用耶穌給你的權柄禱告,這權柄勝過亞當的公國統治權、權勢和屬靈的營壘。求神奉耶穌的名在地上賜下先知的話語,賜下異象、異夢、神蹟和奇事。(馬太福音18:18,哥林多後書10:4)
  • 復興。願任何生活在亞當的信徒都能被聖靈喚醒,對失喪之人的愛和熱心在他們裡面被激發,並起來滿足他們鄰舍的需要。(路加福音10:2,以西結書37:10)
  • 供應。願神將祂的供應和福氣帶給亞當所有有需要的人。祂要顯示祂永遠的慈愛,顯明祂國度的賜福,使祂的百姓興旺。(腓立比書4:19,耶利米書29:7)____________________________________

Falaj Daris

River of Life

The Falaj Daris is the biggest falaj (irrigation canal system) in Oman, and one of the five collectively listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2006. Nizwa’s former prosperity was due to its abundance of water supplies, with over 134 aflaj (plural for falaj) in the Nizwa district. One hundred of these are still in use today.

According to UNESCO, this site represents 3000 such systems still in use throughout Oman. The origins of this particular falaj date back to AD 500, but similar water systems have been used in this arid region since 2500 BC.

These shared community water systems tap into an underground water source and distribute to towns and villages for domestic, commercial, and agricultural use. Besides making civilization possible in these rugged environments, they have shaped Omani culture with its high values for cooperation and consensus.

He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’ (John 7:38)

  • This falaj has been the main source of life for this central region for centuries. Pray that this region would be watered by the true and Living Water, Jesus Himself!

達里斯灌溉渠

 

生命之河

 

達里斯灌溉渠是阿曼最大的灌溉渠(灌溉管道系統),也是2006年被聯合國教科文組織列為世界遺產名錄五個地點當中的一個。尼茲瓦往昔的繁榮是由於其豐富的供水,在尼茲瓦地區有超過134條灌溉渠。其中100個至今仍在使用。

 

根據聯合國教科文組織(https://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1207),這個遺址代表了阿曼全國仍在使用的3000個這樣的系統。這種特殊的灌溉渠的起源可以追溯到公元500年,但自公元前2500年以來,這個乾燥地區就開始使用類似的供水系統。

 

這些共用的社區供水系統利用地下水源,並分配到城鎮和村莊,供家庭、商業和農業使用。除了在這些惡劣的環境中使文明延續成為可能之外,這種供水系統還塑造了阿曼文化,使其具有高度重視合作和共識的價值觀。

 

信我的人,就如經上所說,「從他腹中要流出活水的江河來」。(約翰福音7:38)

 

  • 多個世紀以來,灌溉渠一直是這個中心地區的主要生命來源。禱告這地區能被真正的活水-耶穌自己-澆灌。

Jebel Akhdar

The Green Mountain

Jebel Akhdar (Arabic: ٱلْجَبَل ٱلْأَخْضَر, literally  'The Green Mountain'), is part of Al Hajar Mountains range in Ad-Dakhiliyah region of Oman. Its highest point is 2,980 m (9,780 ft) high, and contains the Saiq Plateau at 2,000m (6,560 ft) above sea level, one of the highest places in Oman. It is a popular tourist area for hiking, camping, and resorts with stunning views, and only accessible by 4x4. This area is known for its rugged wadis, mountain villages, and terraced farmland, where pomegranates, apricots, peaches, walnuts, grapes, and roses grow in abundance due to the mild climate and greater amounts of rainfall—hence its ‘green’ name. Agriculture here is also aided by falaj irrigation systems and terraced farmland. The mountain was declared a nature reserve in 2011, and in 2022 became its own administrative district, for the 60 remote villages dotted across it.

Pray for the Villages and District of Jebel Akhdar:

  • Glory of God. That God would be glorified and exalted and worshipped in Jebel Akhdar. (Habakkuk 2:14, Psalm 138:4-5)
  • Expansion of the Kingdom. That many people in Jebel Akhdar will come to know Jesus, and that communities of believers will be planted, that movements will be ignited. (Luke 1:32-33, 2 Cor 10:15-16)
  • Hearts and Minds. That spiritual blindness and bondages will be lifted from the minds of the people in Jebel Akhdar, and that hearts will be stirred with hunger for Jesus and truth. (2 Cor 4:4, Luke 24:45)
  • Authority. Pray with the authority that Jesus gives you over principalities, powers and spiritual strongholds in Jebel Akhdar. Pray that God would release prophetic words over the land, releasing visions, dreams, signs and wonders in Jesus’ name. (Matthew 18:18, 2 Cor 10:4)
  • Revival. That any believers living Jebel Akhdar would be awakened by the Holy Spirit, have love and passion stirred in them for the lost, and rise to meet the need in their neighborhood. (Luke 10:2, Ezekiel 37:10)
  • Provision. That God would bring His provision and blessing to all those in need in Jebel Akhdar. That He would show His eternal kindness, demonstrate the blessing of His Kingdom, and cause His people to prosper. (Philippians 4:19, Jeremiah 29:7)

艾和達爾山

 

綠色的山

 

艾和達爾山(阿拉伯語:ٱلْجَبَل ٱلْأَخْضَ,字面意思是「綠色的山」),是艾曼達希利亞行政區哈賈爾山脈的一部分。它的最高點有2,980米(9,780英尺)高,包括海拔2,000米(6,560英尺)的賽伊克高原,是阿曼最高的地方之一。這是一個受歡迎的旅遊區,可以徒步旅行和露營,也是度假勝地,景色壯麗,只能通過4x4進入。該地區以其崎嶇的河道、山中村莊和階地農田而聞名,由於氣候溫和,降雨量大,這裡盛產石榴、杏、桃、核桃、葡萄和玫瑰,因此得名「綠色」。這裡的農業也得到了灌溉渠灌溉系統和階地農田的幫助。這座山於2011年被宣佈為自然保護區,並於2022年成為自己的行政區域,60個偏遠的村莊遍佈其中。

 

為艾和達爾山的村莊和轄區禱告:

 

  • 神的榮耀。神將在艾和達爾山得榮耀,尊崇和敬拜。(哈巴谷書2:14;詩篇138:4-5)
  • 神國的擴展。艾和達爾山的許多人將會認識耶穌,信徒群體將會扎根,激起植堂運動。(路加福音1:32-33;哥林多後書10:15-16)

  • 權柄。用耶穌給你的權柄禱告,這權柄勝過艾和達爾山的公國統治權、權勢和屬靈的營壘。求神奉耶穌的名在地上賜下先知的話語,賜下異象、異夢、神蹟和奇事。(馬太福音18:18,哥林多後書10:4)
  • 復興。願任何生活在艾和達爾山的信徒都能被聖靈喚醒,對失喪之人的愛和熱心在他們裡面被激發,並起來滿足他們鄰舍的需要。(路加福音10:2,以西結書37:10)
  • 供應。願神將他的供應和福氣帶給艾和達爾山所有有需要的人。他要顯示他永遠的慈愛,顯明他國度的賜福,使他的百姓興旺。(腓立比書4:19,耶利米書29:7)____________________________________

Rose Water

Fragrant Crushing

Jebel Akhdar is famous for its rose water production, done by traditional methods passed down for centuries. The villages of the mountain harvest the pink Damask roses from March-early May, and distill the precious elixir through a time- and labor-intensive process. It takes about 1.5 kg (3¼ lbs) of petals to produce 700 ml (3 cups) of liquid. Roses are picked by hand and the petals are delicately removed. The petals are steamed and crushed in a traditional clay oven, and the aromatic steam condenses and is collected, forming the rose water.

Omani rose water is distinctive in that it produces a yellow/red, smoky liquid, as the petals are charred in the distillation process. This unique flavoring is highly prized, and Omanis use it to flavor Arabic coffee and Helwa (the national sweet). It is also used in perfumes or sprays, often applied at special events like weddings or Eid holidays. It is also used for cosmetic and medicinal purposes.

“We Christians have the unmistakable “scent” of Christ, discernible alike to those who are being saved and to those who are heading for death. To the latter it seems like the very smell of doom, to the former it has the fresh fragrance of life itself.”—2nd Corinthians 2:15-16​

  • Let’s pray for believers in Oman today (both local and expat) to proudly carry the aroma of Christ.
  • Pray for believers who are being crushed by persecution and burned in the fires of tribulation--may their lives produce a beautiful fragrance.

Worship with us!: Roses by Andrew Ripp. May believers in Oman ‘know the beauty that pain exposes,’ just like Jesus!

玫瑰水

 

壓碎的芳香

 

艾和達爾山以其玫瑰水生產而聞名,採用傳承多個世紀的傳統方法製作。山上的村莊從3月到5月初收貨粉紅色的錦緞玫瑰,並通過時間和勞動密集型的工藝流程提取出珍貴的酏劑。大約需要1.5公斤(3.25磅)的花瓣才能產生700毫升(3杯)的液體。玫瑰是手工採摘的,花瓣被精心摘取。花瓣在傳統的陶土烤爐中蒸熟並壓碎,芬芳的蒸汽凝結再被收集起來,形成玫瑰水。

 

阿曼玫瑰水的獨特之處在於它會產生一種黃色/紅色的薰制般液體,因為花瓣在提取過程中被燒焦了。這種獨特的風味極為珍貴,阿曼人用它來給阿拉伯咖啡和芝麻蜜餅(哈爾瓦)(國民甜點)調味。它也被用於香水或噴霧劑中,通常用於婚禮或開齋節等特殊場合。它也用於美容和醫藥用途。

 

「因為無論在得救的人或在滅亡的人當中,我們都是基督馨香之氣,是獻給神的。對滅亡的人,這是死而又死的氣味;對得救的人,這是生而又生的氣味。」-哥林多後書2:15-16

 

  • 讓我們為今天在阿曼的信徒禱告(無論本地的還是外籍的),他們會自豪地攜帶基督的香氣。
  • 為那些因逼迫而被壓碎,在患難之火中焚燒的信徒禱告-願他們的生命散發出美麗的芬芳。

Al Hamra

Red Mountain Town

Al Hamra (Arabic: ٱلْحَمْرَاء) is a 400-year-old town (population 14,035) in the Ad-Dakhiliyah region. It is also the seat of a district (population 28,228) with a number of picturesque mountain villages. The town and district lie on the southern slopes of Jebel Akhdar. The name is related to the Arabic word for ‘red’. Al Hamra is also known as ‘Hamra Al Abryeen’, referring to the Al Abri tribe who live there.

Some of the oldest preserved houses in Oman can be found here, built on a tilted rock slab in the Yemeni style. Many of the houses have two, three and even four stories, with ceilings made of palm beams and fronds, topped by mud and straw.

Al Hamra is also the gateway to Jebel Shams (meaning ‘Mountain of the Sun’), the highest mountain in Oman.

Pray for the Town and District of Al-Hamra:

  • Glory of God. That God would be glorified and exalted and worshipped in Al-Hamra. (Habakkuk 2:14, Psalm 138:4-5)
  • Expansion of the Kingdom. That many people in Al-Hamra will come to know Jesus, and that communities of believers will be planted, that movements will be ignited. (Luke 1:32-33, 2 Cor 10:15-16)

  • Revival. That any believers living Al-Hamra would be awakened by the Holy Spirit, have love and passion stirred in them for the lost, and rise to meet the need in their neighborhood. (Luke 10:2, Ezekiel 37:10)

紅山鎮

 

哈姆拉(https://goo.gl/maps/6yaaMH1Bn67wVnaJ6)(阿拉伯語:ٱلْحَمْرَاء)是達希利亞行政區一個擁有400年歷史的城鎮(人口1萬4035)。它也是一個擁有許多風景如畫的山村的轄區(人口2萬8228)的中心地帶。該城鎮和轄區位於艾和達爾山的南部斜坡上。這個名字與阿拉伯語中的「紅色」有關。哈姆拉也被稱為「哈姆拉奧布里」,指的是居住在那裡的奧布里部落。

 

在這裡可以發現一些阿曼保存最古老的房屋,它們建在傾斜岩板,具也門風格。許多房子有兩層、三層甚至四層,天花板是用棕櫚樹橫樑和複葉做成的,上面鋪著泥土和稻草。

 

哈姆拉也是通往沙姆斯山(意為「太陽之山」)的門戶,也就是阿曼最高的山。

Jebel Shams

Sun Mountain

Jebel Shams (Arabicجَبَل شَمْس, ) is a mountain located north of Al Hamra town. It is known as Jebel Shams (Sun Mountain) because it is supposedly the first place to receive the sunrise in Oman, due to its high peak. It is the highest mountain in the country, at 3,009 m (9,872 ft) high, and the second tallest in the Arabian Peninsula. Jebel Shams also features Wadi Ghul, a dramatically deep ravine known as the ‘Grand Canyon of Arabia.’

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 121:1-2

  • We bless the people of Oman to find their help from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth!

沙姆斯山

 

太陽山

 

沙姆斯山(https://www.google.com/maps/place/Jebel+Shams/)(阿拉伯語:جَبَل شَمْس)是一座位於哈姆拉鎮北部的山。它被稱為太陽山,因為它的山峰很高,據說是阿曼第一個看到日出的地方。它是該國最高的山,海拔3,009米(9,872英尺),是阿拉伯半島第二高的山。沙姆斯山還有古爾峽谷,這是一個極深極深的峽谷,被稱為「阿拉伯的大峽谷」。

 

我要向山舉目,我的幫助從何而來?我的幫助從造天地的耶和華而來。

詩篇121:1-2

 

  • 我們祝福阿曼人民從創造天地的主那裡得到幫助!
  • 願今天尋求幫助的人能遇見又真又活的神。

Bahla

Forts, Pottery, and Black Magic

Bahla (Arabic: بهلا) is a town (population 39,576) in Ad-Dakhiliyah region, and the seat of Bahla district (population 88,286). It is famous as the home of one of the oldest fortresses in the country, the 13th-century Bahla Fort which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The fortress and old town are enclosed by extensive remnants of a 12-km (7.5 mile) fortified wall.

This area is known for many things. Its pottery is produced from local clay, still using traditional methods dating back to 2500 BC. It is also home to Jabreen Castle, a massive three-story structure built during Al Ya'ruba dynasty in 1675, famous for its ornate woodwork and painted ceilings. And Bahla is notorious as the center of witchcraft and occult practice for Oman, and is even renowned throughout the Arab Gulf for its black magic.

Pray for the Town and District of Bahla:

  • Glory of God. That God would be glorified and exalted and worshipped in Bahla. (Habakkuk 2:14, Psalm 138:4-5)
  • Expansion of the Kingdom. That many people in Bahla will come to know Jesus, and that communities of believers will be planted, that movements will be ignited. (Luke 1:32-33, 2 Cor 10:15-16)
  • Hearts and Minds. That spiritual blindness and bondages will be lifted from the minds of the people in Bahla, and that hearts will be stirred with hunger for Jesus and truth. (2 Cor 4:4, Luke 24:45)
  • Authority. Pray with the authority that Jesus gives you over principalities, powers and spiritual strongholds in Bahla. Pray that God would release prophetic words over the land, releasing visions, dreams, signs and wonders in Jesus’ name. (Matthew 18:18, 2 Cor 10:4)
  • Revival. That any believers living in Bahla would be awakened by the Holy Spirit, have love and passion stirred in them for the lost, and rise to meet the need in their neighborhood. (Luke 10:2, Ezekiel 37:10)

拜赫萊

 

堡壘,陶器和黑魔法

 

拜赫萊(https://goo.gl/maps/UHEmj9aZ8DpK4hzo8)(阿拉伯語:بهلا)是達希利亞行政區的一個城鎮(人口3萬9576),也是拜赫萊轄區(人口8萬8286)的中心地帶。它因擁有該國最古老的堡壘之一而聞名,13世紀的拜赫萊堡被聯合國教科文組織列為世界遺產。堡壘和老城區被一堵12公里(7.5英里)長的堅固城牆的大量殘餘所包圍。

 

這個地區因許多事情而聞名。它的陶器是用當地的粘土製作的,仍然使用公元前2500年的傳統方法製作。它也是賈布林城堡的所在地,這是一座巨大的三層建築,建於1675年的亞魯巴王朝,以其華美的木製品和彩繪天花板而聞名。拜赫萊是阿曼臭名昭著的巫術和神秘活動實踐中心,甚至在整個阿拉伯海灣都因其黑魔法而有名。

 

為拜赫萊這個城鎮和轄區禱告:

 

  • 神的榮耀。神將在拜赫萊得榮耀,尊崇和敬拜。(哈巴谷書2:14;詩篇138:4-5)
  • 神國的擴展。拜赫萊的許多人將會認識耶穌,信徒群體將會扎根,激起植堂運動。(路加福音1:32-33;哥林多後書10:15-16)

  • 權柄。用耶穌給你的權柄禱告,這權柄勝過拜赫萊的公國統治權、權勢和屬靈的營壘。求神奉耶穌的名在地上賜下先知的話語,賜下異象、異夢、神蹟和奇事。(馬太福音18:18,哥林多後書10:4)
  • 復興。願任何生活在拜赫萊的信徒都能被聖靈喚醒,對失喪之人的愛和熱心在他們裡面被激發,並起來滿足他們鄰舍的需要。(路加福音10:2,以西結書37:10)
  • 供應。願神將他的供應和福氣帶給拜赫萊所有有需要的人。他要顯示他永遠的慈愛,顯明他國度的賜福,使他的百姓興旺。(腓立比書4:19,耶利米書29:7)

Medinat Al-Sahar

Bahla: The City of Magic

Bahla is also known in Arabic as Medinat al-Sahar (مدينة السحر) or City of Magic. Legends and stories abound about the demonic origins of various monuments, the abundance of ‘jinn’ (demons) haunting the streets, high rates of demonic possession, and people who come here from all over the Arab Gulf for exorcisms, curses, amulets and other occult practices.

One account says that the massive Bahla fort was built in one night by jinn; another account says jinn built the city walls and are stationed on it. Yet another says a mosque on a hill was also constructed overnight by the jinn. An ancient tree in the old market is said to be a source demonic possession or even death if touched. Some say Bahla is even the 'birthplace of jinn."

Although many of the legends contradict each other, and it’s hard to get a clear picture of the actual spiritual landscape, one thing is certain—the demonic has a unique claim over this city. According to one account by a local man:

“But in the end, this is all jinn... They want to tear us apart—our minds, communities, with arguments, disbelief, everything. And all the time the jinn are still here, waiting. This is the burden of Bahla.”

You can watch a prayer video about Bahla and black magic here.

"So submit to the authority of God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him] and he will flee from you." James 4:7 (AMP)

  • Pray that the people of Bahla would submit to the authority of the one true and living God.
  • Pray that the people of Bahla would resist the devil, and no longer live in fear of him.
  • Pray that the power and the legal ‘right’ of the demonic over this city would be broken, and the devil would flee from this place.
  • Pray that this city would no longer be known as a city of darkness, but rather would be famous for being a city of light.

拜赫萊:魔法之城

 

拜赫萊在阿拉伯語中也被稱為Medinat Al-Sahar(مدينة السحر)或魔法之城。關於各種遺跡的惡魔起源的傳說和故事比比皆是,大量的「精靈」(惡靈)出沒在街道上,惡魔附身的比例很高,人們從阿拉伯海灣各地來到這裡尋求驅魔,詛咒,避邪和其他神秘活動。

 

一種說法是,巨大的拜赫萊堡是由精靈在一夜之間建造的;另一種說法是精靈建造了城牆並駐扎在上面。然而還有人說,一座山上的清真寺也是由精靈在一夜之間建造的。老市集裡的一棵古樹據說是惡魔附身的來源,如果觸摸甚至會死亡。有人說拜赫萊甚至是「精靈的誕生地」。

 

盡管許多傳說相互矛盾,而且很難清晰地描繪出真實的屬靈景觀,但有一件事是肯定的-惡靈對這座城市擁有獨特的所有權。根據一位當地人的描述(https://psmag.com/social-justice/edge-of-the-arabian-desert-the-jinn-of-oman):

 

「但說到底,這全部都是精靈…他們想要撕裂我們-我們的思想,我們的社區,用爭論,懷疑,一切事物。而精靈一直都在這裡等待著。這是拜赫萊的重擔。」

 

你可以在這裡觀看關於拜赫萊和黑魔法的禱告視頻(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TQ0MDKJjfg)。

 

「所以,要順服神。要抵擋魔鬼【堅決反對他】,魔鬼就必逃避你們;」(雅各書4:7)

 

  • 禱告拜赫萊的人民會順服獨一的又真又活的神的權柄。
  • 禱告拜赫萊的人民會抵擋魔鬼,不再生活在對他的懼怕中。
  • 禱告惡靈在這個城市的能力和合法「權利」會被打破,魔鬼會逃離這個地方。
  • 禱告這座城市不再被稱為黑暗之城,而是以光明之城而聞名。

Bahla Fort

A Physical and Spiritual Stronghold

Bahla Fort (قلعة بهلاء) is one of the oldest and largest forts in Oman, and is the country’s only fort on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The fort was built between the 12th and 15th century by the powerful Banu Nebhan tribe, who controlled the frankincense trade at the time and made Bahla their capital. But some parts of the fort are thought to have been built before then, with artifacts found dating back as early as 500 BC. The fort was constructed of local mud-brick, and has remarkably survived through the centuries, with the occasional restoration.

There are various paranormal stories surrounding the fort. Legend has it that Bahla was threatened by an attack from a neighboring kingdom and the ruler reached out to a jinn for help. The massive fort was supposedly built overnight and the enemy armies made a hasty retreat after just looking at it. Another legend says that the fort was built upon a site where a sorcerer was stoned for his wizardry, and his spirit has haunted the fort and impeded restoration ever since.

According to one Omani historian who helped with the most recent restoration of the fort from 1987-2012: ‘“Bahla was the center of military, religion, and politics in that age. And powerful people attracted powerful jinn,” he admits, recalling stories of ancient Bahlawi generals who were potent enough to stand atop the fort and command the jinn.’

This fort is a stronghold in the physical realm, as well as in the spiritual realm. Let’s pray that the demonic stronghold over Bahla will come down!

[Jesus] canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. In this way, He disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by His victory over them on the cross. Colossians 2:14-15

  • Let’s exalt the triumphant victory of Jesus at the cross over the city of Bahla!
  • Let’s declare the disarming of spiritual rulers and authorities over Bahla!
  • Let’s proclaim that Jesus offers the people of Bahla forgiveness of sin and eternal life!

拜赫萊堡壘

 

一個實體和屬靈的營壘

 

拜赫萊堡壘(قلعة بهلاء)是阿曼最古老、最大的堡壘之一,也是該國唯一被聯合國教科文組織列入世界遺產名錄的堡壘(http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/433/)。這座堡壘建於12世紀到15世紀之間,由強大的巴努內布汗部落建造,他們當時控制著乳香貿易,並將拜赫萊作為他們的首府。但是堡壘的某些部分被認為是在那之前建造的,發現的文物可以追溯到公元前500年。這座堡壘是用當地的泥磚建造的,極不尋常地在多個世紀中倖存下來,偶爾會進行修復。

 

城堡周圍有各種各樣的超自然故事。傳說拜赫萊受到來自鄰國的攻擊威脅,統治者向精靈尋求幫助。這座巨大的堡壘據說是一夜之間建成的,敵軍只是看了一眼就匆忙撤退了。另一個傳說是,這座堡壘建在一個巫師因施展魔法而被石頭砸死的地方,他的靈魂一直縈繞在堡壘附近,從那時起就阻礙了修復。

 

一位阿曼歷史學家在1987年至2012年期間幫助修復了這座堡壘,根據他的說法(https://psmag.com/social-justice/edge-of-the-arabian-desert-the-jinn-of-oman):「拜赫萊是那個時代的軍事、宗教和政治中心。強大的人吸引強大的精靈,」他承認,回憶起古代拜赫萊將軍的故事,他們強大到足以站在堡壘頂上指揮精靈。

 

這個堡壘既是物質世界的堡壘,也是屬靈世界的堡壘。讓我們禱告惡魔在拜赫萊的營壘會被摧毀!

 

【耶穌】塗去了在律例上所寫、敵對我們、束縛我們的字據,把它撤去,釘在十字架上。基督既將一切執政者、掌權者的權勢解除了,就在凱旋的行列中,將他們公開示眾,仗著十字架誇勝。

(歌羅西書2:14-15)

 

  1. l讓我們頌贊耶穌在十字架上取得了對拜赫萊城的巨大勝利!
  2. l讓我們宣告驅散拜赫萊的屬靈統治者,解除屬靈統治者對這裡的權柄!
  3. l讓我們宣揚耶穌賜給拜赫萊人赦罪和永生!

Jinn

More Than Just a Genie

The belief in jinn is quite prevalent in Bahla, as we’ve seen, and throughout all of Oman. In the West, if we think of a 'genie', (English form of 'jinn'), we think of Aladdin and his magical lamp. But in Oman, jinn are thought to be everywhere. If a lightbulb is flickering because it is about to go out, it is caused by a jinn. Typical Omani homes include ‘jinn lights’ in the bedrooms—small colored lamps meant to keep the jinn away while they sleep. One of the reasons Omanis burn incense in their homes daily is to keep the jinn out. If something goes wrong in your surroundings, it often is attributed to jinn making mischief, or being malevolent. Although Omanis would say that magic and occult practices are not a part of Islam, belief in jinn certainly is. Let’s go a little deeper into this belief in jinn to know better how to pray. According to one source:

Among Muslims—the second-largest religious group in the world—belief in spirit beings is common, and descriptions of them are particularly vivid in Islamic texts. The Qur’an tells the story of the birth of the jinn, supernatural creatures born of “smokeless fire,” while further verses and Hadith—collections of quotes attributed to the prophet Muhammed that supplement the holy book of Islam—lay out further details of the origins and principles of jinn.

These texts present an unsettling picture of jinn: extremely powerful beings made in the eyes of Allah alongside humans but with a proclivity for following the evil lead of Iblis, a haughty jinn (later to be known as Satan) who refused to bow to the superiority of Adam and subsequently vowed to lead all humans astray. Jinn also enjoy lurking in dark, unclean places, and Islamic doctrine even offers a supplication to ward off these foul spirits specifically for when entering shadowy or impure places like that bathroom: “In the name of God, I take refuge with you from all evil and evildoers."

So, let us pray for Omanis today, that they would take refuge from jinn with the true and living God.

Little children (believers, dear ones), you are of God and you belong to Him and have [already] overcome them [the agents of the antichrist]; because He who is in you is greater than he (Satan) who is in the world [of sinful mankind]. (I John 4:4 AMP)

  • Pray for Omanis to be freed from the fear of jinn that rules many of their lives.
  • Pray for the power of Jesus to free and heal to be demonstrated to those oppressed and in bondage to demons.

精靈

 

不僅僅是一個(精靈)妖怪

 

正如我們所看到的,對精靈的信仰在拜赫萊和整個阿曼都很普遍。在西方,如果我們想到「精靈」,我們會想到阿拉丁和他的神燈。但在阿曼,人們認為精靈無處不在。如果一個燈泡因為即將熄滅而閃爍,那是精靈造成的。典型的阿曼家庭在臥室里都有「精靈燈」-一種小小的彩色燈,用來在人們睡覺時趕走精靈。阿曼人每天在家里燒香的原因之一是為了防止精靈進入。如果你周圍的環境出了問題,人們通常會把它歸咎於精靈的惡作劇或惡意。雖然阿曼人會說魔法和神秘活動的實踐不是伊斯蘭的一部分,但對精靈的信仰肯定是。讓我們更深入地了解一下對精靈的信仰,以便更好地知道如何禱告。根據一個資訊來源(https://psmag.com/social-justice/edge-of-the-arabian-desert-the-jinn-of-oman):

 

在世界上第二大宗教團體-穆斯林中,對靈性存在的信仰是普遍的,對他們的描述在伊斯蘭文本中尤為生動。古蘭經講述了精靈誕生的故事,精靈是一種超自然的生物,誕生於「無煙之火」,而進一步的經文和聖訓-被認為是先知穆罕默德的名言集合,補充了伊斯蘭聖書-進一步詳細介紹了精靈的起源和原理。

 

這些文本呈現了一幅令人不安的精靈的畫面:在真主的眼中是極其強大的存在,與人類並肩而生,但卻傾向於追隨易卜劣廝【魔鬼】的邪惡領導,易卜劣廝是一個傲慢自大的精靈(後來被稱為撒旦),他拒絕向阿丹【亞當】的優越低頭,隨後發誓要把所有人類引入歧途。精靈也喜歡潛伏在黑暗、不潔的地方,伊斯蘭教義甚至專門為進入陰暗或不潔的地方,比如浴室,提出了一套祈願詞,以抵禦這些邪惡的靈:「以真主的名義,我與你一起躲避所有邪惡和為惡者。」

 

所以,讓我們今天為阿曼人禱告,希望他們能得到真正的神的庇護躲避精靈。

 

孩子們【信徒們,親愛的人們】哪,你們是屬神的,並且【已經】勝過了假先知【敵基督者的代理人】,因為那在你們裡面的比那在【罪惡人類的】世界上的【撒旦】更大。(約翰一書4:4)

 

  • 禱告阿曼人從對主宰他們生活的精靈的恐懼中解脫出來。
  • 禱告耶穌顯明他的能力,釋放和醫治那些受壓迫和受惡魔捆綁的人。

  • 神的榮耀。神將在比德比德得榮耀,尊崇和敬拜。(哈巴谷書2:14;詩篇138:4-5)
  • 神國的擴展。比德比德的許多人將會認識耶穌,信徒群體將會扎根,激起植堂運動。(路加福音1:32-33;哥林多後書10:15-16)
  • 心靈與頭腦。比德比德人民的頭腦中,屬靈的盲目和束縛將被破除,他們的心靈將萌發對耶穌和真理的渴慕。(哥林多後書4:4,路加福音24:45)
  • 權柄。用耶穌給你的權柄禱告,這權柄勝過比德比德的公國統治權、權勢和屬靈的營壘。求神奉耶穌的名在地上賜下先知的話語,賜下異象、異夢、神蹟和奇事。(馬太福音18:18,哥林多後書10:4)
  • 復興。願任何生活在比德比德的信徒都能被聖靈喚醒,對失喪之人的愛和熱心在他們裡面被激發,並起來滿足他們鄰舍的需要。(路加福音10:2,以西結書37:10)
  • 供應。願神將他的供應和福氣帶給比德比德所有有需要的人。他要顯示他永遠的慈愛,顯明他國度的賜福,使他的百姓興旺。(腓立比書4:19,耶利米書29:7)_______________________________________

Holy Spirit

Be Poured Out in Ad-Dakhiliyah!

Today, let us pray for the release of the Holy Spirit over Ad-Dakhiliyah. At Pentecost, God poured out the promised Holy Spirit, empowering the early church and drawing many to believe. Peter said in Acts 2:17-21,

“What you see was predicted long ago by the prophet Joel: ‘In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on my servants—men and women alike—and they will prophesy. And I will cause wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below—blood and fire and clouds of smoke. The sun will become dark, and the moon will turn blood red before that great and glorious day of the Lord arrives. But everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’"

We want to see the Holy Spirit poured out, so that people in Ad-Dakhiliyah will call on the name of the Lord and be saved!

  • Pray for the Holy Spirit to be moving over Ad-Dakhiliyah region of Oman, stirring up hunger and thirst to know Truth. (Matthew 5:6)
  • Pray for many in the Ad-Dakhiliyah to have dreams and visions of Jesus. (Joel 2:28)
  • Pray for miraculous signs and wonders to be released in the Ad-Dakhiliyah, pointing to the power and authority of Jesus. (Acts 4:30)
  • Pray for believers in the region to be strengthened in the gifts of the Spirit, and to grow in the fruit of the Spirit. (1 Cor. 12:4-11, Galatians 5:22–23)

聖靈

 

澆灌在達希利亞!

 

今天,讓我們禱告聖靈在達希利亞遍地遊走運行。在五旬節,神澆灌應許的聖靈,使早期教會有能力,並吸引許多人相信。彼得在使徒行傳2:17-21中說,

 

「這正是藉著先知約珥所說的:『神說:在末後的日子,我要將我的靈澆灌凡血肉之軀的。你們的兒女要說預言;你們的少年要見異象;你們的老人要做異夢。在那些日子,我要把我的靈澆灌,甚至給我的僕人和婢女,他們要說預言。在天上,我要顯出奇事,在地下,我要顯出神蹟,有血,有火,有煙霧。太陽要變為黑暗,月亮要變為血,這都在主大而光榮的日子未到以前。那時,凡求告主名的都必得救。』」

 

我們想看到聖靈的澆灌,好叫達希利亞的人呼求主的名而得救!

 

  • 禱告聖靈運行在阿曼的達希利亞行政區,激起人們想認識真理的渴慕之心。(馬太福音5:6)
  • 禱告達希利亞的許多人得到關於耶穌的夢境和異象。(約珥書2:28)
  • 禱告降下神蹟奇事在達希利亞,指向耶穌的能力和權柄。(使徒行傳4:30)
  • 禱告該地區的信徒在聖靈的恩賜上得到堅固,並在聖靈的果子中成長。(哥林多前書12:4-11,加拉太書5:22-23)

Ad-Dakhiliyah Seekers

All Who Are Thirsty

We know that the Father is actively at work in Oman, to begin drawing people to His Son, Jesus (John 6:44). Researchers estimate that approximately 2.5% of any given population is open for religious change. So in the Ad-Dakhiliyah region, that means approximately 11,963 people are potentially open!

‘Broad sowing’ initiatives to find seekers are challenging in Oman, because of laws outlawing proselytization. However, social media campaigns are starting to connect with seekers, and beginning to bear fruit. Today, let’s pray for seekers in the Ad-Dakhiliyah region, and the social media efforts to connect with them.

Let's pray for the seekers in Ad-Dakhiliyah:

  • Pray for the 2.5% of Ad-Dakhliyah region (11,963 people) that are potentially open for spiritual change. (Acts 26:18)
  • Pray for thousands of sincere seekers to go online to learn more about Jesus, and to come across the media ads, and to engage with the content. (Psalm 63:1)
  • Pray for boldness for seekers, to start up a conversation with the online responder, and to be willing to meet face-to-face with a disciple-maker. (Psalm 27:1)
  • Pray for the meetings with seekers and disciples-makers, that they would lead to the seeker’s commitment to follow Jesus. (Matthew 16:24)

Worship with us!: All Who Are Thirsty by Vineyard Worship. May the thirsty seekers in Ad-Dakhiliyah respond to the invitation and come to Him!

達希利亞的慕道者

 

所有渴慕的人

 

我們知道天父正在阿曼積極地工作,開始吸引人們歸向他的兒子耶穌(約翰福音6:44)。研究人員估計,在任何給定的人口中,大約有2.5%的人對宗教改變持開放態度。因此,在達希利亞行政區,這意味著大約有1萬1963人可能是開放的!

 

在阿曼,尋找慕道者的「廣泛播種」計畫具有挑戰性,因為法律宣佈使人改變宗教信仰不合法。然而,社交媒體活動開始與慕道者建立聯繫,並開始取得成果。今天,讓我們為達希利亞行政區的慕道者以及社交媒體與他們聯繫的努力禱告。

 

讓我們為達希利亞的慕道者禱告:

 

  • 禱告2.5%的達希利亞行政區人口(1萬1963人)可能對屬靈改變保持開放。(使徒行傳26:18)
  • 禱告成千上萬真誠的慕道者在網上更多地了解耶穌,並看到媒體廣告,並參與其中。(詩篇63:1)
  • 禱告慕道者有勇氣與網路回應者對話,並願意與門徒教導者親自見面。(詩篇27:1)
  • 禱告慕道者和門徒教導者可以聚會,使他們能夠帶領慕道者委身跟隨耶穌。(馬太福音16:24)

Izki

Oman's Oldest City

Izki (إزكي) is a town (pop. 35,173) and seat of Izki district (pop. 58, 905) in the Ad-Dakhiliyah region. At more than 2600 years old, it is considered one of the oldest cities in Oman. It has been a well-known meeting point for trade at the end of the route from Muscat to Nizwa, and currently comprises many villages, the most prominent being Al Yemen and Al Nizar. Al Nizar is still inhabited, but Al Yemen, which sits opposite it, has been abandoned since the 1970s. Its ruins are a popular tourist attraction, as are the ruins of the nearby village of Imti.

There have been many ancient archeological finds within this area dating back to the pre-Islamic period, including those from the Early and Late Iron Ages. Izki was mentioned in Early Iron Age (640 BC) cuneiform texts, and some even believe that similar texts from Ninevah mention Izki. You can also find the Jarnan Cave within the ruins of Izki, and legend has it that before Islam entered this area, the people sought to hide a golden calf they worshiped within this cave. Lastly, Falaj al Maliki, one of the oldest and most famous falaj systems in the area, can be tied back to Malik bin Fahm al Azdi, who led the Azdi tribe out of Yemen and into Oman some 1800 years ago.

Pray for the Town and District of Izki:

  • Glory of God. That God would be glorified and exalted and worshipped in Izki. (Habakkuk 2:14, Psalm 138:4-5)
  • Expansion of the Kingdom. That many people in Izki will come to know Jesus, and that communities of believers will be planted, that movements will be ignited. (Luke 1:32-33, 2 Cor 10:15-16)
  • Hearts and Minds. That spiritual blindness and bondages will be lifted from the minds of the people in Izki, and that hearts will be stirred with hunger for Jesus and truth. (2 Cor 4:4, Luke 24:45)
  • Authority. Pray with the authority that Jesus gives you over principalities, powers and spiritual strongholds in Izki. Pray that God would release prophetic words over the land, releasing visions, dreams, signs and wonders in Jesus’ name. (Matthew 18:18, 2 Cor 10:4)
  • Revival. That any believers living in Izki would be awakened by the Holy Spirit, have love and passion stirred in them for the lost, and rise to meet the need in their neighborhood. (Luke 10:2, Ezekiel 37:10)
  • Provision. That God would bring His provision and blessing to all those in need in Izki. That He would show His eternal kindness, demonstrate the blessing of His Kingdom, and cause His people to prosper. (Philippians 4:19, Jeremiah 29:7)

伊茲基

 

阿曼最古老的城市

 

伊茲基(https://www.google.com/maps/place/Izki)(إزكي)是達希利亞行政區的一個城鎮(人口3萬5173)和伊茲基區的中心地帶(人口5萬8905)。它有2600多年的歷史,被認為是阿曼最古老的城市之一。它一直是馬斯喀特到尼茲瓦路線末端的一個著名的貿易交匯點,目前由許多村莊組成,最著名的是也門和尼扎爾。尼扎爾仍有人居住,但對面的也門自20世紀70年代以來已被廢棄。它的遺址是一個受歡迎的旅遊景點,就像附近的伊姆蒂村的遺址一樣。

 

這個地區範圍內有許多古代考古發現,可以追溯到前伊斯蘭時期,包括鐵器時代的早期和晚期。伊茲基在早期鐵器時代(公元前640年)的楔形文字中被提到,有些人甚至認為尼尼微的類似文本中也提到了伊茲基。你也可以在伊茲基的遺址中找到賈爾南洞穴,傳說在伊斯蘭進入這個地區之前,人們試圖在這個洞穴里隱藏他們敬拜的一隻金牛犢。最後要說的是,馬利克灌溉渠是該地區最古老、最著名的灌溉渠體系之一,它可以追溯到大約1800年前領導阿茲迪部落從也門進入阿曼的馬利克·本·法哈姆·阿茲迪。

 

為伊茲基這個城市和轄區禱告:

 

  • 神的榮耀。神將在伊茲基得榮耀,尊崇和敬拜。(哈巴谷書2:14;詩篇138:4-5)
  • 神國的擴展。伊茲基的許多人將會認識耶穌,信徒群體將會扎根,激起植堂運動。(路加福音1:32-33;哥林多後書10:15-16)
  • 心靈與頭腦。伊茲基人民的頭腦中,屬靈的盲目和束縛將被破除,他們的心靈將萌發對耶穌和真理的渴慕。(哥林多後書4:4,路加福音24:45)
  • 權柄。用耶穌給你的權柄禱告,這權柄勝過伊茲基的公國統治權、權勢和屬靈的營壘。求神奉耶穌的名在地上賜下先知的話語,賜下異象、異夢、神蹟和奇事。(馬太福音18:18,哥林多後書10:4)
  • 復興。願任何生活在伊茲基的信徒都能被聖靈喚醒,對失喪之人的愛和熱心在他們裡面被激發,並起來滿足他們鄰舍的需要。(路加福音10:2,以西結書37:10)
  • 供應。願神將他的供應和福氣帶給伊茲基所有有需要的人。他要顯示他永遠的慈愛,顯明他國度的賜福,使他的百姓興旺。(腓立比書4:19,耶利米書29:7)

Movements

Rapid Multiplication of Disciples and Churches in Ad-Dakhiliyah

We want to see the fullness of the Kingdom of God coming into every part of the Dakhiliyah region, like yeast penetrating the entire batch of dough (Matt. 13:33). And the fastest way for this to happen is by rapidly reproducing disciples and groups (churches), who spread and multiply within and across their families, tribes, social networks, and societies.

Acts 6:7 is our heart’s desire and fervent prayer: “God's word reigned supreme and kept spreading. The number of Jesus' followers in [Ad-Dakhiliyah] quickly grew and increased by the day.”

  • Pray that seekers/new disciples would form groups to pray and study the Word together, forming a church. (Hebrews 10:25)
  • Pray that these new groups/churches would mature and multiply, leading to movements of healthy, reproducing churches. (Acts 16:5)
  • Pray for the raising up and multiplication of Omani leadership in these groups and networks. (2 Tim. 2:2)
  • Pray for spiritual protection from the enemy, covering over new believers, new groups, and new leaders as they emerge (I Pet. 5:8)
  • Pray that these movements would overcome the obstacles that hinder growth, like fear, pride, corruption, disunity, etc. (Ephesians 4:1-4, 20-23)
  • Pray that Christ alone would be the foundation of these groups and movements (I Cor. 3:11)
  • Pray for the fullness of the Kingdom of God to spread and penetrate into every aspect of society and culture, in Ad-Dakhiliyah as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:10)

運動

 

達希利亞門徒和教會的快速倍增

 

我們想要看到神的國度充滿達希利亞行政區的每一個角落,就像酵母滲透整個麵團一樣(馬太福音13:33)。而實現這一目標的最快方式是快速重複栽培門徒和團體(教會),他們在家庭、部落、社交網路和社會中擴散和倍增。

 

使徒行傳6:7是我們內心的渴望和熱切的禱告:「神的道興旺起來【至高無上,不斷傳播】;【達希利亞的】門徒數目增加得很多【迅速增長,與日俱增】。」

 

  • 禱告慕道者/新門徒會組成團體,一起禱告和學習神的話語,形成一個教會。(希伯來書10:25)
  • 禱告這些新的團體/教會會逐漸成熟和擴張,引領運作良好的重複栽培教會的運動。(使徒行傳16:5)
  • 禱告這些團體和人際關係網中興起和倍增阿曼人的帶領。(提摩太後書2:2)
  • 禱告當新信徒、新團體和新領袖湧現時,神在屬靈上保守他們脫離仇敵,遮蓋他們。(彼得前書5:8)
  • 禱告這些運動會克服阻礙成長的障礙,如恐懼、驕傲、墮落、不合一等。(以弗所書4:1-4,20-23)
  • 禱告唯獨基督會成為這些團體和運動的根基。(哥林多前書3:11)
    • 禱告神的國度的豐盛,如同在天堂一樣在達希利亞傳播並滲透到社會和文化的每一個方面。(馬太福音6:10)

Manah

Gift of God

Manah (منح) is a town (population: 7,749) and the seat of Manah district (pop. 25,320) in the Ad-Dakhiliyah region. The word Manah in Arabic means ‘gift of God’, or ‘blessing’. The old town of Manah is one of Oman’s oldest archaeological sites and contains four mosques, 376 ancient houses, and almost 250 wells which are over nine centuries old. Al Fiqain castle, built in 1617, towers above the ancient ruins of the city, a dramatically beautiful site.

Manah is also growing in prominence as a place for learning Arabic, as Sultan Qaboos College for Teaching Arabic to Non-Native speakers is located there. Sponsored by the Royal Court, the college aims to become one of the leaders in teaching Modern Standard Arabic to foreigners.

Pray for the Town and District of Manah:

  • Glory of God. That God would be glorified and exalted and worshipped in Manah. (Habakkuk 2:14, Psalm 138:4-5)

瑪納

 

神的禮物

 

瑪納(https://www.google.com/maps/place/Manah/)(منح)是達希利亞行政區的一個城鎮(人口:7749)和瑪納區的中心地帶(人口:2萬5320)。瑪納這個詞在阿拉伯語中的意思是「神的禮物」或「福氣」。瑪納老城是阿曼最古老的考古遺址之一,擁有四座清真寺、376座古代房屋和近250口有9個多世紀歷史的井。菲克因城堡,建於1617年,聳立在城市的古代遺址之上,是一個非常美麗的地方。

 

作為一個學習阿拉伯語的地方,瑪納的重要性也日益突出,因為向非母語人士教授阿拉伯語的蘇丹卡布斯學院就坐落於此。該學院由皇家宮廷資助,目的是成為向外國人教授現代標準阿拉伯語的帶頭機構之一。

  • 復興。願任何生活在瑪納的信徒都能被聖靈喚醒,對失喪之人的愛和熱心在他們裡面被激發,並起來滿足他們鄰舍的需要。(路加福音10:2,以西結書37:10)

Fanja (فنجاء) is the largest town in Bidbid district (pop. 14,755) in the Ad-Dakhiliyah region, about 25 km from Muscat. Fanja is known for its beautiful wadis, therapeutic hot springs, watchtower ruins, and traditional market in which you can find local items such as baskets, spices, pottery, etc.

Fanja is also famous for its Azwah festival, celebrating the end of the Ramadan fasting month, held during Eid al Fitr. Residents (mainly men and boys) shoot cannons and rifles, perform traditional dances and sword fights, recite poetry, and participate in highly-stylized rituals. Scholars say the celebration’s rituals may be pre-Islamic, but were later adapted into the Islamic holiday. In a similar but darker vein of pre-Islamic practices, it is also reported that Fanja is a site of animal sacrifice to jinn.

Pray for the Town of Fanja:

  • Glory of God. That God would be glorified and exalted and worshipped in Fanja. (Habakkuk 2:14, Psalm 138:4-5)
  • Expansion of the Kingdom. That many people in Fanja will come to know Jesus, and that communities of believers will be planted, that movements will be ignited. (Luke 1:32-33, 2 Cor 10:15-16)
  • Hearts and Minds. That spiritual blindness and bondages will be lifted from the minds of the people in Fanja, and that hearts will be stirred with hunger for Jesus and truth. (2 Cor 4:4, Luke 24:45)
  • Authority. Pray with the authority that Jesus gives you over principalities, powers and spiritual strongholds in Fanja. Pray that God would release prophetic words over the land, releasing visions, dreams, signs and wonders in Jesus’ name. (Matthew 18:18, 2 Cor 10:4)
  • Revival. That any believers living in Fanja would be awakened by the Holy Spirit, have love and passion stirred in them for the lost, and rise to meet the need in their neighborhood. (Luke 10:2, Ezekiel 37:10)
  • Provision. That God would bring His provision and blessing to all those in need in Fanja. That He would show His eternal kindness, demonstrate the blessing of His Kingdom, and cause His people to prosper. (Philippians 4:19, Jeremiah 29:7)

Worship with us!: Peace by Bethel & We the Kingdom. May God’s peace fall on Fanja, the true peace found through Jesus alone!

凡雅

 

節日和儀式

 

凡雅(فنجاء)是達希利亞行政區比德比德區(人口1萬4755)最大的城鎮,距離馬斯喀特約25公里。凡雅以其美麗的河谷、治療性溫泉、瞭望塔遺址和傳統市集而聞名,在那裡你可以找到當地的物品,如籃子、香料、陶器等。

 

凡雅也以其阿茲瓦節而聞名,慶祝齋月(禁食月)的結束,在開齋節期間舉行。居民(主要是男人和男孩)發射大炮和步槍,表演傳統舞蹈和劍術,背誦詩歌,並參加高度風格化的儀式。學者們說,慶祝活動的儀式可能是前伊斯蘭時期的,但後來被調整為伊斯蘭節日。也有記錄說,在一個類似的但更黑暗的前伊斯蘭習俗中,凡雅是一個將動物獻祭精靈的地方。

 

為凡雅這個城鎮禱告:

 

  • 神的榮耀。神將在凡雅得榮耀,尊崇和敬拜。(哈巴谷書2:14;詩篇138:4-5)
  • 神國的擴展。凡雅的許多人將會認識耶穌,信徒群體將會扎根,激起植堂運動。(路加福音1:32-33;哥林多後書10:15-16)
  • 心靈與頭腦。凡雅人民的頭腦中,屬靈的盲目和束縛將被破除,他們的心靈將萌發對耶穌和真理的渴慕。(哥林多後書4:4,路加福音24:45)
  • 權柄。用耶穌給你的權柄禱告,這權柄勝過凡雅的公國統治權、權勢和屬靈的營壘。求神奉耶穌的名在地上賜下先知的話語,賜下異象、異夢、神蹟和奇事。(馬太福音18:18,哥林多後書10:4)
  • 復興。願任何生活在凡雅的信徒都能被聖靈喚醒,對失喪之人的愛和熱心在他們裡面被激發,並起來滿足他們鄰舍的需要。(路加福音10:2,以西結書37:10)
  • 供應。願神將他的供應和福氣帶給凡雅所有有需要的人。他要顯示他永遠的慈愛,顯明他國度的賜福,使他的百姓興旺。(腓立比書4:19,耶利米書29:7)_______________________________________

Blessing Ad-Dahkiliyah

A Mighty Fortress

A powerful aspect of prayer is blessing, and every month we want to bless the region we are praying according to a scripture passage.

"You’re as real to [them] as bedrock beneath [their] feet, like a castle on a cliff, [their] forever firm fortress, [their] mountain of hiding, [their] pathway of escape, [their] tower of rescue where none can reach [them]. [Their] secret strength and shield around [them], You are salvation’s ray of brightness shining on the hillside, always the champion of [their] cause. " (Psalm 18:2 TPT)

We bless the peoples of Ad-Dakhiliyah come to know the true and living God as their fortress and refuge! We bless them to know the reality of Your nearness and Your strength! Shine the light of Your salvation upon them!

Samail

Birthplace of Islam in Oman

Samail (سمائل) is a town (pop. 29,691) and seat of the Samail district (pop. 80,402) in the Ad-Dakhiliyah region. Samail is famous for its date palm trees which blanket the area. Accordingly, there are numerous date factories located in the area. Samail is also known for the nearby valley, the "Sumail Gap," which divides the Al Hajar Mountains into the Eastern and Western subranges. This route–the main road from Muscat to Nizwa–was historically used for trade and communication between the coast and interior areas of Oman. Caravans used this passageway for trading in frankincense, and its explorers include Marco Polo and Ibn Battutah.

Samail was also home to the first Muslim convert in Oman, Mazin bin Ghadubah, who adopted Islam during Mohammed’s lifetime and was an ardent spreader of the new faith. Mazin Mosque, which he built in 627 AD, is the oldest mosque in Oman. The mosque has been restored many times, but it still retains the same ancient foundations. Mazin’s tomb is also here, and is a revered attraction.

Pray for the Town and District of Samail:

  • Glory of God. That God would be glorified and exalted and worshipped in Samail. (Habakkuk 2:14, Psalm 138:4-5)
  • Expansion of the Kingdom. That many people in Samail will come to know Jesus, and that communities of believers will be planted, that movements will be ignited. (Luke 1:32-33, 2 Cor 10:15-16)
  • Hearts and Minds. That spiritual blindness and bondages will be lifted from the minds of the people in Samail, and that hearts will be stirred with hunger for Jesus and truth. (2 Cor 4:4, Luke 24:45)
  • Authority. Pray with the authority that Jesus gives you over principalities, powers and spiritual strongholds in Samail. Pray that God would release prophetic words over the land, releasing visions, dreams, signs and wonders in Jesus’ name. (Matthew 18:18, 2 Cor 10:4)
  • Revival. That any believers living in Samail would be awakened by the Holy Spirit, have love and passion stirred in them for the lost, and rise to meet the need in their neighborhood. (Luke 10:2, Ezekiel 37:10)
  • Provision. That God would bring His provision and blessing to all those in need in Samail. That He would show His eternal kindness, demonstrate the blessing of His Kingdom, and cause His people to prosper. (Philippians 4:19, Jeremiah 29:7)

塞馬伊勒

 

阿曼伊斯蘭的發源地

 

塞馬伊勒(https://www.google.com/maps/place/Samail,+Oman/)(سمائل)是達希利亞行政區的一個城鎮(人口:2萬9691),是塞馬伊勒區(人口:8萬0402)的中心地帶。塞馬伊勒以其遍佈該地區的椰棗樹而聞名。因此,該地區有許不計其數的椰棗廠。塞馬伊勒也因附近的山谷而聞名,「塞馬伊勒縫隙」將哈賈爾山脈分為東部和西部區域。這條路線-從馬斯喀特到尼茲瓦的主要道路-在歷史上被用於阿曼沿海和內陸地區之間的貿易和通信。商隊使用這條通道進行乳香貿易,包括馬可·波羅和伊本·白圖泰在內的探險家都曾到此。

 

塞馬伊勒也是阿曼第一個皈依穆斯林的馬津·本·加杜巴的家鄉,他在穆罕默德在世時皈依了伊斯蘭,是這種新信仰的熱心傳播者。馬津清真寺建於公元627年,是阿曼最古老的清真寺。這座清真寺經過多次修復,但它仍然保留著同樣的古老地基。馬津的墳墓也在這裡,是一個受人崇敬的景點。

 

為塞馬伊勒這個城鎮和轄區禱告:

 

  • 神的榮耀。神將在塞馬伊勒得榮耀,尊崇和敬拜。(哈巴谷書2:14;詩篇138:4-5)
  • 神國的擴展。塞馬伊勒的許多人將會認識耶穌,信徒群體將會扎根,激起植堂運動。(路加福音1:32-33;哥林多後書10:15-16)
  • 心靈與頭腦。塞馬伊勒人民的頭腦中,屬靈的盲目和束縛將被破除,他們的心靈將萌發對耶穌和真理的渴慕。(哥林多後書4:4,路加福音24:45)
  • 權柄。用耶穌給你的權柄禱告,這權柄勝過塞馬伊勒的公國統治權、權勢和屬靈的營壘。求神奉耶穌的名在地上賜下先知的話語,賜下異象、異夢、神蹟和奇事。(馬太福音18:18,哥林多後書10:4)
  • 復興。願任何生活在塞馬伊勒的信徒都能被聖靈喚醒,對失喪之人的愛和熱心在他們裡面被激發,並起來滿足他們鄰舍的需要。(路加福音10:2,以西結書37:10)
    • 供應。願神將他的供應和福氣帶給塞馬伊勒所有有需要的人。他要顯示他永遠的慈愛,顯明他國度的賜福,使他的百姓興旺。(腓立比書4:19,耶利米書29:7)_______________________________________

Ripe Fields

Praying for the Harvest in Ad-Dakhiliyah

John 4:35–As you look around right now, wouldn’t you say that in about four months it will be time to harvest? Well, I’m telling you to open your eyes and take a good look at what’s right in front of you. These [Dakhiliyah] fields are ripe. It’s harvest time! (MSG)

Many Gospel seeds have been sown in this region, through numerous long-term and short-term Harvest Laborers. However, there currently are very few on the ground there now. Pray for their encouragement, strengthening, and protection. And let us pray earnestly to the Lord of the Harvest to send forth new Laborers there!

  • We declare that there is a ripe, abundant harvest in Ad-Dakhiliyah region!
  • We declare that there is much Good Soil in Ad-Dakhiliyah, that will bear fruit thirty-, sixty-, and a hundred-fold!
  • We declare open doors for Sowers and Reapers in Ad-Dakhiliyah!
  • We declare that seeds sown in the past will find good soil, be watered, and grow!
  • We declare that Harvest time in Ad-Dakhiliyah is NOW, not later!

Worship with us!: Lord of the Harvest by Lindy Cofer. The Lord of the Harvest is worthy! May many say 'yes' to His call to go to Ad-Dakhiliyah!

成熟的莊稼

 

為達希利亞的收割禱告

 

約翰福音4:35-你們不是說「到收割的時候還有四個月」嗎?我告訴你們,舉目向田觀看,【達希利亞的】莊稼熟了,可以收割了。

 

透過無數長期和短期的收割工人,福音的種子已經在這個地區播下。然而,目前在那裡的地面人員很少。禱告他們受到鼓勵、堅固和保護。讓我們懇切地向收割之主禱告,求祂派遣新的工人到那裡去!

 

  • 我們宣告,達希利亞行政區將獲得成熟、豐碩的收成!
  • 我們宣告,在達希利亞有許多好土壤,將結出三十倍,六十倍和一百倍的果實!
  • 我們宣告,達希利亞的大門為播種者和收割者敞開!
  • 我們宣告,過去播下的種子,會找到好的土壤,得到澆灌,茁壯成長!
  • 我們宣告,達希利亞的收割時間是現在,而不是以後!

與我們一同敬拜!《收割之主》(https://youtu.be/Omeea0HPxl8),林迪·科弗。收割之主是配得的!願許多人對他的呼召說「是」,到達希利亞去!
