PRAISE AND PRAYER
The month of July is the beginning of the other half of the year and we are grateful for being with us since the year started. As we start this other half, we would be revamping our logo and we thought it right that our readers understand the details of the new logo.
1. The background shield alludes to the Christian Faith as seen in Ephesians 6:16; ‘taking the shield of faith’.
2. The prominent flower figure is an allusion to what a garden is. A garden of flowers and beauty. It also reflects a garden of trees that characterized the garden in Eden (Genesis 2:8–9).
3. The 2 white lines at the base of the shield represent the river that went out of Eden to water the garden and from where it flowed out to water the earth (Genesis 2:10–14).
4. Finally, the green theme calls to mind — the freshness, lushness, and richness of the garden.
These images should inform the reader what this Christian outfit stands for and what we are all about. This new logo will be what will be displayed on all our pages and should be used to represent us. We, therefore, pray that will continue to model these truths to our generations.
What then is the Lord saying as we approach the month of July?
A. On the 10th of June 2022, a post was released on our Instagram page (@propheticvibes) titled “CAN WE CHILDREN AGAIN?” The post is important and we will do well to put it to heart and follow up on the prophetic instructions therein because it is in the divine agenda and move for such a time as this.
As a follow-up on that post; Zephaniah 3:17–20 says,
17The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love, he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.”
18 “I will remove from you
all who mourn over the loss of your appointed festivals,
which is a burden and reproach for you.
19 At that time I will deal
with all who oppressed you.
I will rescue the lame;
I will gather the exiles.
I will give them praise and honor
in every land where they have suffered shame.
20 At that time I will gather you;
at that time I will bring you home.
I will give you honor and praise
among all the peoples of the earth
when I restore your fortunes
before your very eyes,”
says the Lord. (NIV)
As we begin to lift our voices in praise in this season, God will begin to deal with those who have oppressed the nation in wickedness. He will also RESTORE OUR FORTUNES. This is why we must respond with praise in every place and in every country. We war from the place of victory and not in fear and hopelessness.
B. On the 9th of June 2022, I had a vision of conflict in an area of a popular state in Nigeria. It’s a crowded area that is known for violence. However, the conflict was heavy this time, and many innocent were gunned down. It felt like an attack and at the same time like a conflict or crisis. I saw innocent people die in their numbers.
And God said to me, ‘Pray to avert this evil’. So I started praying about this. On the 11th, as I prayed… God showed me the evil plan of the enemy. And as I prayed, I saw their way scattered before them and God set an ambush against them as He did in 2 Chronicles 20:22–23. As we lift our voices in praise, we will see his judgment on the enemies of the nation and the church.

C. We need to raise the altar of prayer and pray actively. As we pray for security and the destruction of evil schemes and counsel, we should also pray against the meltdown of some sector(s). The next shaking will hit the banking sector and we must labor in prayers for those who pray now will stand in the days of its shaking.
D. I saw a woman stand and at her command were the armed forces of India.
