Dear Praying Friends
I don’t know if it is only in my little world but there seems to be a crescendo of grave prayer needs. How grateful I am for you because even in our Christian environment, there is a shortage of prayer. How we all grapple, as the saints before us did as well, I’m sure, as to what good does prayer do? I don’t know - I’m not God but I only know that I get my marching orders from Him.
Here are the cries from my heart:
- One of my precious sons Jonathan, would take hold of Jesus as he once did and that a daughter Kara, would know Jesus - really know Him.
- That the fog of my exhaustion and weakness would pass. It is so difficult to carry on.
- That Jesus would comfort the destruction that my dear friends Jun and Regina are facing in their country, the Philippines. Here is a quote from an email from them: “We are now facing the most difficult time ever. In the past 20 years this is the most difficult time for us. We’re facing threat everywhere; earthquakes, killings, sickness, social injustice, persecution of churches, believers misunderstanding and so forth. What Jesus said in Mathew 24 is now fulfilling in our very eyes. If you remember last time, when I saw a formation of angels as if they were preparing for something big. I think the real end times have begun. Please help us pray for more strength.”
-That the Holy Spirit would instill in His children the need to rise up and pray with intensity.
