As President Joe Biden wrestles over whether to end the United States' embargo against Cuba—which originated in 1958 but was augmented several times until 1962 when it was extended to include almost all imports—the island nation 90 miles from Key West, Florida continues to see unrest.
Now is the time to pray. In December 2019, I had a vision of the embargo against Cuba ending in the short-term. Remember, most of the people alive today did not choose this government or this rule of law. This is a behemoth spirit spreading the ideology of communism.
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said recently "almost all the countries in the world" are against the U.S. embargo.
"It is not conceivable that in these times they want to punish an independent country with a blockade," Lopez Obrador said.
"I think that President Biden must make a decision about it. It is a respectful call, from no point of view of interference, but we must separate the political from the humanitarian."
Could this be Cuba's moment of liberty in more ways than one? We need to pray.

Pray the Holy Spirit will move and hover over Cuba, doing a mighty work in the hearts of leaders and the Cuban population alike (Gen. 1:2, Prov. 21:1).
Pray God will all the seeds planted by past evangelism teams. Let there be great fruit that comes forth from the love poured out. Let that love spread like wildfire (1 Cor. 3:6-9).
Pray God will strengthen and refresh all your people that are already with their feet on the ground in Cuba Lord. Let them be emboldened to follow where you lead (Phil. 1:14, 1 Thess. 2:2).
Pray Cuba to be set free from the hand of the enemy over their nation. We say to Satan, "Let the Cuban people go in Jesus' name" (Ex. 5:1).
