Intercessory


Just so you all know.... PRAYER is the biggest part of ministry. Prayer, communication with our heavenly Father, accomplishes many many things. It draws our hearts closer to our creater... if you are visual like i am you might like to evision crawling up into His lap, looking up into his eyes and him telling you that he is pleased with you the way he made you... he loves you and you are safe there in his arms. Seriously, the more i experience this closeness, the more i want to find myself there... in that place where he knows my heart and i know his. Secondly, prayer prepares so much.... it prepares our hearts for what will happen, it prepares the road ahead of you, it prepares others hearts to be open... Thirdly, with intercessory prayer, you can actually pray on the behalf of others. Spiritual warfare is very big and very real... and although God has won the war, there are battles daily between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness that we don't see but definately feel the effects of. While i've been here, I've experienced prayer like i never had before! God says that if we 1-Praise Him 2- Confess of our sins 3-Silence the voice of the enemy 4- Silence our own voice 5- Invite the Holy Spirit to come and 6- Wait in expectation to hear from him..... Then we WILL hear from him. We will see visions, have revelations, get words for people... and sometimes even feel what they feel. We become sensitive to the holy spirit, allowing him to really come upon us and work through us. My prayer is that everyone experience prayer in this way. It is so powerful!!! The words, pictures and verses that you can get for people can be truly encouraging and life changing. There have been times where those things have confirmed what God has been telling me for so long! We have also seen miracles as the outcome of these prayers.... Please be praying for us as we prepare for 3 months in very hard conditions. .... our health is so important during this time. Please pray for travel. Please pray for safety. Pray for revival, that many will come to know Gods love the way we know and experience it! Pray for our unity. Please pray for financial needs as well... I'm trusting God will provide!!! ( As a whole, our money is not quite there, and there have been some needs come up lately personally as well) Please please please, if God gives you any word of encouragement or verse or picture.... please share it with us... you never know it may just come at the perfect time. I am so greatful that I have brothers and sisters who have dedicated their lives to God and who are making a difference in this world. You are all so amazing!!!! Bless you.
