20 People to Pray for in 2015

news leader.jpgGlobal Prayer Resource Network (GPRN) has released a list from In Context Ministries that highlights 20 key leaders who may have a significant influence in the affairs of the world in 2015. According to the press release, “While there is no way of knowing for sure what lies ahead in 2015, we can look back to the past year for some ideas about who will be the likely ‘newsmakers’ in the year to come.”


According to Isabel Spangenberg of GPRN, “Battles are underway for political rule in virtually every nation on earth. If the powers of darkness are allowed to work undisturbed and influence people, they will take control of governments and people in positions of authority. The consequences will be catastrophic for everyone.” She quotes Daniel 2:21: “He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.”


Some of the 20 influencers include Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (self-declared Caliph running rampage in Iraq and Syria), Benjamin Netanyahu (Israel), Hassan Rouhani (Iran), Recep Erdoğan (Turkey), Vladimir Putin (Russia), Barack Obama (United States), Chu Yiu-Ming (Christian leader of the Hong Kong “umbrella movement”), Kim Jong-un (North Korea), and Dr. Joanne Liu (president of MSF, primary respondents in the Ebola crisis, West Africa).
