Praying the News with Jennifer LeClaire
When Old Enemies Circle Back to Attack (Episode 033)



We’re seeing end times prophecies manifest right before our very eyes, but many in the world are too blind to see what is happening right under their nose.

Indeed, we’re seeing hell populated with people dying of pestilences. And this is just the beginning. How should we respond?

This is Jennifer LeClaire, and this is Praying the News. On today’s broadcast we’ll look at how viruses and other pestilences are springing up in the nations and how intercessors should pray at such a time as this.

Check out my book, The End Times Watchman: The Prophetic Intercessors Guide to Watching and Praying Through the Last Days.

If you’ve been watching and praying the news, you’ve noticed there are viruses old and new manifesting in the earth. It seems like every time we blink, there’s another threat of pestilence and pandemic.

Keep in mind, it’s not just humans at risk. It’s also livestock. Tens of millions of chickens and turkeys have died due to the bird flu at a time when the supply chain is strained and farmers are selling cattle because of severe droughts. This, of course, affects the human population.

On the human side of the equation, the U.S. government just declared Monkeypox a national emergency as people are clamoring for vaccines. The Avian flu virus is circulating through Europe. The West Nile virus death toll and cases are soaring in Italy.

Meanwhile, China has discovered a potentially fatal new virus called Langya Henipavirus is manifesting. It’s not a human-to-human transition but spread through insect bites. The World Health Organization reports there’s a 40 to 75 percent mortality rate among those who contract any virus in this family of viruses.

Then there’s the resurgence of Polio, an old threat that paralyzes its victims, The United States was declared polio free in 1979 but at least one person in New York is now paralyzed from the disease and experts say many others are probably carrying the contagion. Now, London is rolling out widespread polio vaccinations for children. Indeed, Polio has become a modern-day threat even while we’re still seeing new strains of coronavirus infect and kill people.

In March 2020, I had a prophetic vision during prayer at Awakening House of Prayer that is coming to pass. Let’s listen in. Listen to the podcast to hear the prophecy.

I believe what I saw was Delta and Omicron, which now itself has many variants. We didn’t break the mutants of this virus, which tells me this is part an end-times prophecy that we can’t pray away. We can’t pray away the pestilences that Jesus prophesied. But we can pray through them.  And we must.

It’s time to pray.

Repent and ask God for His mercy for yourself and the nations.

Plead the blood of Jesus over yourself and your family.

Pray against the ripple effect of viruses in the nations, on lives, families, workforces and supply chains.

Pray that nations will turn to the one true living God.

Pray for the protection of medical staff on the front lines.

Pray national leaders, city leaders, business leaders and church leaders will follow the wisdom of God regarding how to navigate the threat of new pandemics.

Pray for God to work something good out of the current horrifying realities.

Pray for evangelists who are preaching the gospel and that the word of the Lord will run swiftly in the nations.

Pray that people receive the saving grace of the Lord and come to the knowledge of the truth that sets them free.

Pray in the Spirit and as led by the Spirit.
