Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly Places.” (Ephesians 6:12 NKJV)
Throughout the history of Naga political struggle against the aggressors, God has been faithfully and graciously guiding and protecting the Nagas because He has a plan and purpose for the Naga nation. In His mercy and grace, God gave victory to the Nagas during the period of military confrontation which resulted in the signing and declaration of ceasefire on 1st August, 1997 between NSCN and GoI. After which, political negotiation started and by the grace of God even during the course of political negotiation He has been gradually granting victories to the Nagas. The first victory came about when NSCN andGoI officially declared in a joint communique on 11th July, 2002 “The unique history and situation of the Nagas.” Secondly, after a prolonged negotiation and through God’s divine intervention the historic Framework Agreement was signed on the 3rd August, 2015 between NSCN and GoI, which paved the way for the negotiators on both sides to formulate and workout competencies for final solution. Since then, for past five years both sides have been tirelessly and ceaselessly working on it despite many hurdles. Finally, they have been able to come up with the mutually agreed competencies based on Framework Agreement. However, the double standard and hypocritical attitude displayed by GoI by refusing to recognize the Naga flag and Yehzabo (constitution) of the Nagas after recognizing it in black and white in the Framework Agreement has created a big hiccup forfinding the final solution. But the Naga leaders led by the Chief Negotiator and AtoKilonser,Mr.Th. Muivah have strongly stood their ground, and they have clearly and firmly asserted that without the flag and constitution there can be no solution because solution without it will not be honourable and acceptable.
Meanwhile, as the response from the GoI is being awaited, the enemy forces along with some treacherous busy bodies seems to be working sleeplessly and tirelessly to sabotage honourable and acceptable final solution for their selfish agendas. It has been informed to the Council of Nagalim Churches through various prayer warriors, prophets, prophetesses and prayer centers all over Nagalim that, the enemy forces within and without, seen and unseen, physical and spiritual are all collaborating together and devising a plan to workout a piece-meal solution which is going to be a complete sellout and surrender and that bloodshed among Naga brethren is imminent if the enemies succeeds in their plan. In the light of above mentioned revelation the CNC believes that, as the physical confrontation in the form of military force and political negotiation is already over, Nagas have now entered in to the state of spiritual warfare and since the Naga national flag itself bears a spiritual significance; the star in the flag represents the presence of God with the Naga nation, the rainbow represents covenant between God and Naga people and the sky blue background represents eternity which means that Nagas have an eternal covenant and commitment in fulfilling the great commission given by our Lord and Savoiur Jesus Christ to all the disciples and all the Christians (Matthew 28:16-20) and a vow to be an active participant in establishing God’s kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven which is the main agenda of “NAGALIM FOR CHRIST.” This is why evil spirits and satanic forces are actively at work and they are uniting and working together to stop and destroy God’s purpose and plan for the Naga nation.
Therefore, considering the perilous and extra ordinary situation confronting the Naga nation which can only be overcomed and defeated through fasting and prayer, the CNC declares a three days national fasting and prayer from Friday, the 27thNovember – Sunday, the 29th November, 2020 and notifies all the regions, units, battalions and brigade churches under CNC and appeals to all the denominational churches, prayer groups, prayer warriors and all the responsible Christians in Nagalim and abroad to seriously observe three days of fasting and prayer and earnestly pray for final solution of Indo-Naga political issue at the earliest so that unwanted situation may not arise due to indefinite delay.
Along with the other prayer points that God may inspire or reveal to pray for, the CNC request everyone to pray for following prayer points:
- Let us pray that the Holy Spirit will convict the hearts and minds of the Naga people and especially the leaders so that they will genuinely confess, repent, completely surrender and commit their lives to the will and purpose of God the Father. (2 Chronicles 7:14, Luke 22:42)
- Let us pray for all the Church leaders in Nagalim to let them be filled With the Holy Spirit so that they can provide spiritual guidance to the people and ignite spiritual revival in Nagalim. (Nehemiah 8: 9-12; Acts 2:38-39)
- Let us pray that God will destroy all the evil forces that are working in Nagalim and in India that are confusing the people and influencing the leaders to delay the final solution of Indo-Naga Political Issue. (Ephesians 6:12, James 4:7)
- Let us pray that Naga leaders and people may not fall into the lure, trap and temptation of the enemy which may hamper and delay the final Solution and bring destruction to the Naga people. (Genesis 4:7; Matthew 6:13)
- Let us pray that unity and genuine reconciliation based on truth and historical and political rights of the Nagas so that permanent peace and solution can be ushered in at the earliest. (Psalm133:1; John 8:32)
