How to Pray After the Soleimani Assassination

How to Pray After the Soleimani Assassination

January 5, 2020 | last modified January 5, 2020

Pray for continued lightning strikes by the voice of the Lord.

Iranian General Soleimani, who was killed by a drone on January 3rd, 2020, was arguably the most dangerous terrorist in the world. I believe this was very related to the vision shown me on September 9th, 2019 of the voice of the Lord going out as lightning to strike demonic thrones over Iran, Russia, and Turkey. This vision was accompanied by literal (and rare) flashes of lightning as we proclaimed it on October 14th, 2019.

Here is what I said on YouTube and in the written report on our website:

“I felt that this was showing that God was going to do something that was secret and hidden, like the dark clouds around Him. The lightning represents that it would be very powerful, and it would be something fairly sudden. It would strike the demonic throne. This means that it would stop certain things that Satan wanted to do through his influence upon earthly leaders.”

These words aptly describe the drone strike on General Soleimani.

So I would encourage us to keep proclaiming Psalm 29, especially verse 7: “The voice of the Lord strikes like lightning” over demonic thrones in Iran, Russia, and Turkey at this time.

Pray for the breaking of unholy alliances.

The vision mentioned above was particularly highlighting demonic thrones above the capitals of Iran, Russia, and Turkey. It was further confirmed when the leaders of Iran, Russia, and Turkey met in the capital of Turkey one week later, on September 16th, 2019. When we proclaimed it on October 14th, 2019, we felt the Lord led us to also pray it over Hezbollah and Lebanon.

I would now encourage us to pray for the breaking and splintering of any unholy alliances between Iran, Russia, Turkey, Lebanon, and Iraq. Iran cannot take any truly significant revenge for the Soleimani killing without the help of the nations mentioned. And it cannot start a major Middle Eastern war without those unholy alliances.

Pray that fear, confusion, and division will come upon the demonic powers over those nations that would seek to start a major Middle Eastern war outside of the Lord’s timing.

Pray Psalm 91 over those who could be the target of revenge attacks by Iran and its proxies.

Pray this especially over Israeli and American targets for revenge attacks by Iran, and over Christian believers in Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon.

Declare the throne of the Lord Almighty over the Middle East, and especially over Iran, the nation with the fastest evangelical Christian growth in the world.

This is a moment to proclaim the unshakeable Throne of the Unshakeable King Jesus (Yeshua) over the nations of Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria as they are all being severely shaken.

Iran is ancient Persia. The key governmental center for the Persian Empire was within the province of Elam. Its capital city of Susa was the location of the palace into which they brought Queen Esther during this Hebrew month of Tevet.

I believe this is a good moment to proclaim these prophetic words over Elam and over all of Iran:

“This is the word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam, early in the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah: This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘See, I will break the bow of Elam, the mainstay of their might. I will bring against Elam the four winds from the four quarters of heaven; I will scatter them to the four winds, and there will not be a nation where Elam’s exiles do not go. I will shatter Elam before their foes, before those who want to kill them; I will bring disaster on them, even my fierce anger,’ declares the Lord. ‘I will pursue them with the sword until I have made an end of them. I will set my throne in Elam and destroy her king and officials,’ declares the Lord. ‘Yet I will restore the fortunes of Elam in days to come,’ declares the Lord.” – Jeremiah 49:34-39 [NIV]

May the Lord continue to reveal by His Holy Spirit how we are to pray in this very strategic season.

      The Lord Almighty reigns. He is the defender of the fatherless. He is awesome in his power. This battle is the Lord’s
      The real battle takes place in the 2nd heaven where the principalities and rulers of darkness dwell. But my God,, the Most High God, shall prevail Light always overcomes darkness. Let there be light. To God be the glory

    Psalm 99 King James Version (KJV)

    99 The Lord reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved.

    2 The Lord is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people.

    3 Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.

    4 The king’s strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.

    5 Exalt ye the Lord our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.

    6 Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the Lord, and he answered them.

    7 He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them.

    8 Thou answeredst them, O Lord our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.

    9 Exalt the Lord our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the Lord our God is holy.

    We thank God for the prophetic voice that goes before His intervention, for He said He does nothing but that He first reveals it to his servants, the prophets.

    This is a genuine question so please don’t read any wrong tone in it, as can happen in messages and emails.
    With regards to :
    “Pray that fear, confusion, and division will come upon the demonic powers over those nations that would seek to start a major Middle Eastern war outside of the Lord’s timing.”
    How do we know if this is or isn’t God’s timing for the Ezekiel 38 war? To be praying against it.

    • Succat Hallel Succat Hallel on January 7, 2020 at 4:07 pm

      Hi Gayle, thanks for your question. Rick is unavailable to answer you. However, we’ll do our best to explain:

      We do not know the Lord’s timing. If this is His timing, then so be it. This is simply a call to pray in case that this is not the Lord’s timing.

      Hope that helps!

    Thank you for your leadership in these crucial times, I agree with you and all believers here in this special prayer.
    The Word of The Lord never returns void, it always accomplishes what He sends HIs Word to do. Blessings in Jesus Name!

    In 2014 my wife and I prayed in Susa at the site of Esther’s intercession and where Daniel prayed and received his prophetic dreams and visions. Our prophetic intercession was calling forth the fulfilment of their intercession in our generation as well as calling forth again the blessing of the Spirit filled Elamites who returned to their homeland after their Salvation and Baptism in the Holy Spirit in Acts 2. “ Others have laboured in prayer and witness. We enter into their labour” Praise The Lord!

  27. Avatar M. Weiss on January 7, 2020 at 1:21 pm

    Sharing this word so more will intercede.
    There is power in prayer.
    Answered questions and gave specific information.
    A vital guide on how to pray.
    Thank you.
    May God be glorified as we intercede in praying
    His Word.

    Amazing prayer devotional. I would just add that China is also under suppression of a dictatorship, and that prayer is needed for the persecuted Christians there.

  35. Avatar Kathy M Darlington on January 9, 2020 at 12:56 am

    With Holy Spirit’s excellent direction, our prayer-arrows are certain to meet their marks! Praying as one with you all! Abba spoke with thunder and lightning last night over Washtenaw County in Michigan at approx 10:15PMEST — unheard of in January! Asking God for understanding and significance.
