Dear Prayer Partners
It is so amazing to see how, as important as memorization is, out of that has grown seemingly even more interest in prayer. To see my brothers and sisters gathering here and there - on phone, in homes, on Skype to pray is an encouragement to my heart beyond what anything else could, except for the fulfillment of what we are praying for. But whatever the prayer request is, it is a tool to gather His people together and with one heart praise and glorify our King because we realize that we have no authority to approach His throne - except that we come in the Name of Jesus. What a privilege!
Some have prayed via phone last Thursday. We heartily welcome you to go back to last week’s prayer thread and you’ll see the times for the prayer gatherings as well as the phone number and access code and then to join us. Some of us will meet today (Saturday) at 4 pm CDT so adjust your zones accordingly. I’m lucky that I live in the Midwest so I don’t have to do any calculations! Please consider joining us.
Also, whether you can be a part of the calls or not, please, please, please list how we can pray for you. There is a lot of emotional baggage out there. Don’t suffer alone. It’s why Jesus is the head of His body. We are not meant to be alone. You are making yourself a target for the enemy as he loves to have you all alone so he can beat you up. Please don’t let him do that to you. We stand together, all needy but realizing as we pool what He has given us, we can make it together. It’s His idea, not any of ours. He invented prayer.
-for one of my sons, Jonathan, to receive his joy and fulfillment in Jesus. He is so talented but is depressed and live in futility. Also for one of my daughters Kara, who will enjoy a relationship with Jesus, not just a Christian in name only.
-it’s too large to go into detail but direction for Nancy and I and how Naniboujou Lodge fits into it all.
-Jun, who I work with in the Philippines startled me last week when we skyped and he spoke of being fearful and having panic attacks. This is not the Jun that I know at all. He’s getting pummeled by the enemy. Also with my request above, what is my place in the work in the Philippines?
-Kara, who I asked prayer for above, is going to church with her boyfriend. Also, she found a job in the LA area working with an aerospace company and they are very kind to her because THEY ARE CHRISTIANS! Whoo-hoo. Thanks for praying - especially you KELLY!
