As women, prayer comes as naturally as childbirth. We are wired to take hold of a seed, nurture it in our womb, and bring you to full term a baby human being. Birthing the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven works the same way. We find out what the will of God is in a situation, take that "seed," plant, and nurture it in our spirit, then call it forth "on earth, as it is in heaven." Prayer is not only our privilege, it is our responsibility. What a glorious partnership with the Holy Spirit it is to download into our spirit the will and purposes of God and speak them forth into the earth. Spirit to spirit. Heart to heart.
TWO PRAYER REQUESTS
A Personal Request
Friends, I need your prayers.
God has spoken to me that the time has come to release the book, Slave Trade: Ransomed Beauty, Rescued Bride. This book is literally my life's work. If you read my blog this month, I tell about a visitation of the Lord some thirty years ago. The instruction given me at that time was simply, "Get to know My Church." I promptly obeyed and have worked for many churches, faith-based nonprofits, and ministries since. I learned "church" in the board rooms and the back rooms of some of the largest ministries in the nation. And in some of the smallest church plants in the city. Believe me, I know Church. And I know the Body of Christ in ways only time and experience can prove. The bottom line is I LOVE Church. God LOVES Church. And it's time to see this beautiful Bride take her place in wisdom, authority, and physical fitness so that she can run alongside her Bridegroom and finish the race in full victory.
I covet your prayers as I bring the words and the revelation together of the beauty of this Bride for these last days. Please pray for the RIGHT AGENT and the RIGHT PUBLISHER and most of all the RIGHT TIMING of the Lord.
Praying in Perilous Times
The collapse of nations. Moral failure of leaders. Riots in the streets. Hatred. Shootings. Looting. How is one to pray? There is no reasoning with evil. We are way past listening. Way past talking. When people are in agreement with the wrong spirit there is no common ground. Judging situationally out of the spirit of offense will only keep things stirred up and operating in the "good guy-bad guy" circle. And that never ends.
So, where can we agree?
We can agree on the Word of God. "It is written..." is our prayer of agreement. When we agree with God we can't go wrong.
Join me in this Corporate Prayer for Our Nation, inspired by the Holy Spirit and written by Pastor Don Clowers, Experienced Life Church, Carrollton, Texas.
Praying for Our Youth
How do we pray for the youth culture today. The civil unrest, the violence in the streets, the unhealthy alliances we see taking advantage of the passion and energy of our Youth. Here's a great link. "30 Day Prayers for Our Nation's Youth".
How May I Pray for YOU?
There is a plan for your life. A destiny. A "book" written by God about you. If you're like me you don't want to miss one jot or tittle of it. And while you and I can't fulfill the promises of God -- only He can -- we can inquire of the Lord the beautiful story He has written about us and get into agreement with it. Dreams. Visions. Beauty. Joy. the Garment of Praise for impossible imaginings. The desires of the heart placed there by the Creator Himself.
When you "pray your list" today, make an addition. The plan God has written about you.
