Intercessor Cindy Jacobs Shares This URGENT Call to Prayer for Hong Kong
The Spirit of God is speaking that His Church must arise and shine at this moment not in protests but in never ending prayers. It is Isaiah 60! “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you.” -Isaiah 60:1-2 NIV

Dear friends please Pray for the peace of Hong Kong,
I am now in HK heartbroken and praying. I can’t begin to describe the urgency of global intercession needed right now for the city of Hong Kong for the peace of its government and its youth. HK airport has gone into complete mayhem, riots and violent protests are beginning to go out of control.
Two days ago I was flying from LA to HK on a 1AM Cathay airlines flight but it was cancelled due to the airplane pilot protesting. I took the next day flight and arrived in HK Monday evening to an airport flooded with thousands of HK youth in black t-shirts, angry, infuriated and in pain crying out for justice. I walked into the airport shocked and saddened in my heart.
I knelt on my knees and begin to ask The Lord for mercy over this great city and gateway of Asia in the middle of the arrival hall. As I lifted up my eyes I saw that I was in the middle of the hallway entrance with the words above “Hong Kong Asia’s World City”, the financial center of Asia, the London & Wall Street of the East, how did it all of a sudden become this city of darkness & hopelessness? This place I call my second home.
I began to pray in the Spirit and weep for the youth of the city. I then began to see holy hands linked together all across the city of HK in unison crying out “Holy! Holy! Holiness unto the Lord!” I then saw warring and healing angels rise from the ashes of the streets of Hong Kong into the midair and the Spirit of revival and awakening began to rumble across the city streets. I then saw praise, worship and prayers being lifted up over the city and young people crying out for salvation in unison with those who began to pray first. Then I heard the Scriptures:
“He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction.” -Malachi 4:6
“if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” -2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV
I had a vision while praying in the spirit, of angels rising up from the ashes through concerted prayers, Malachi 4:6, “the hearts of the fathers must turn towards the sons and daughters in order for the land to be healed”. This must come from the cities; spiritual fathers and mothers in repentance and leadership and then the youth will turn in prayers as well. Then I saw angels all across the city rising up if we humble ourselves, repent and pray for not democracy, but for salvation. The Spirit of God is speaking that His Church must arise and shine at this moment not in protests but in never ending prayers. It is Isaiah 60! “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you.” -Isaiah 60:1-2 NIV
If we don’t unite in prayer for revival as one Church in the city, it will be pain unbearable ahead (Psalm 133). At this point HK is on the verge of mayhem, anarchy and all out warfare. China PLA (Peoples Liberation Army) will come in and it will be over if the youth don’t back down—we need nothing short of a miracle right now. I see bloodshed ahead unless a miracle breaks forth from the heavens.
“Then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not heed the warning and the sword comes and takes their life, their blood will be on their own head.” Ezekiel 33:4 NIV
My heart breaks as I’ve spoken to both sides of the argument and political dilemma. There are students being gunned down with tear gas, rubber bullets and severe beatings from the police force in the name of freedom. There are police being beaten and jumped by angry and violent youth who feel violated & threatened by the government in the name of protection. Eastern media is demonizing the youth protesters as unruly & evil, Western media is sensationalizing the narrative as injustice against democracy, in between all the politics and game of thrones at play are innocent bystanders being caught in the crossfire; innocent citizens, elderly, children, teachers, fathers & mothers, civilians who can’t go to work, can’t pay their bills and others passing through the city of HK in fear of their lives being endangered. And then those who have been beaten, dragged through the streets, left for dead: police who have children, students who have parents, and those who want peace but are only faced with violence.
We don’t need more protests, WE NEED MORE PRAYERS. We don’t need more hate, WE NEED MORE LOVE. We don’t need more pain, WE NEED A GREATER PURPOSE. That purpose is not politics, is not democracy, is not communism, that purpose and cause is the love of CHRIST IN ALL and ABOVE ALL & FORGIVES ALL.
We need to pray for the Hong Kong government to exercise wisdom, we need to pray for those young protesters to feel that they have been heard. There needs to be God’s solution, not a human solution. I don’t know what it is, because both sides are not hearing one another, and the worst could be very well yet to come. The Scripture says:
“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.” -Romans 13:1-5
I am not advocating for communism or democracy, what I am advocating is for peace.
God is our ultimate democracy. Every human government is flawed, but we live and believe for a Heavenly Kingdom ruled by Jesus as our ultimate King. Jesus didn’t die for democracy He died for a Kingdom.
I was there in Hong Kong for the first three peaceful protests. I believe in democracy, I believe in the HK citizens’ rights to fight for their freedom. The one country two systems agreement is clear & shouldn’t be obstructed but upheld. Yet, I don’t believe in violent protests. I don’t believe in brutality, unnecessary violence & guerilla warfare to achieve freedom—there is a better way and I believe the Bible is clear, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” -Ephesians 6:12 NIV
The true battle is not waged with our fists in the air, the true battle is waged on our knees in prayer.
There doesn’t need to be anymore unnecessary bloodshed, instead, we plead the Blood of the Lamb to save and protect Hong Kong and all its people from any harm, danger, and the spirit of death. Instead may the spirit of life, of awakening, of greater love be poured out over all and spill into the streets of Hong Kong with God’s love. We pray for a divine miracle to happen now for Hong Kong:
Lord Jesus, we pray for the peace of Hong Kong. We pray that we would learn to love one another amidst our differences, that You Jesus would be lifted up over this city! We pray that Your Church would unite in prayer and praise, that a miracle would reign down from Heaven into the earth, into every heart in Hong Kong at this moment and bring healing to this land. God we cry out for mercy, we declare Your Holiness over the Hong Kong people and we ask for Your mercy to protect the innocent from bloodshed and for supernatural grace to be granted to this great city of Hong Kong. We pray Lord that You would turn the hearts of the parents to the children and the children to the parents, break the curse off the land and release a spiritual revival and awakening unto true salvation in Jesus’ name over Hong Kong, China, the World. Amen
