        (03/06/2000) Thru signs and circumstances
hello prayer warriors

1. prayer note: thru signs and circumstances

[Proverbs 20:30] Blows and wounds cleanse away evil,
and beatings purge the inmost being (NIV)
Sometimes it takes a painful experience to make us
change our ways (GN)

Sometimes God speaks to us through circumstances even
our painful experiences. Do you realise that sometimes
it is in our painful experiences that we call out to
God, that we draw nearer to Him and we hear His voice?

One of my sisters-in-Christ told me that she only drew
closer to God after her husband left her for another
woman. And looking back, if she had to choose between
intimacy with God and the relationship with her
husband, she says that she will choose God.

Remember the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego
who chose not to bow down to the gods of
Nebuchadnezzar and was cast into the fire. When
Nebuchadnezzar enquired of them, his counsellor said
[Daniel 3:25]
He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose,
walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no
hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of

So, in the midst of the fire, Jesus is there. He will
never leave us alone in our pain and He will be the
one who will rescue us from the midst of the fire. Let
us learn to be sensitive to God in the midst of our
valleys, because we have a mountain to climb. And as I
heard a sister say, when she has scaled a mountain,
she finds herself soon in another valley, because
there is yet a higher mountain ahead. How can we get
to another mountain if we do not get through the
valley experience?

God is interested in our character, because there is
only two things we can bring to heaven: other souls
and our character.

2. New Prayer Requests
i. Pray for Toni -- waihun
Toni is one of our prayer warriors. She has dropped
out of the prayer group because she is very ill. She
had 16 major surgeries and the last one had to be
halted in surgery, because her body was going into
shock! She now lives in serious pain that cannot be
corrected (except by GOD). Please lift her up in your

ii. Pray for waihun -- ephlee
Thank you for Wai Hun and her servant's heart. I thank
You for Your continual guidance and wisdom upon her. I
thank You for Your mighty blessings upon her. I thank
You for Your continual wall of fire that's surrounding
her. I pray that the blood of Jesus will continually
flow from the crown of her head to the sole of her
feet. I pray that Your perfect divine health is upon
her even right now. In Jesus' name, let her health be
perfect. Thank You Lord for answering our prayers. In
Jesus' name I ask all these, Amen.

First of all, I would like to thank ephlee for
submitting this prayer for me. I've been having a
terrible stomach problem lately and I was very touched
to read pauline's and bc's prayer for me. Thank you
sisters for your love.

3. Prayer update
i. update on Amanda Bundy - bc
Thank you for your prayers for Amanda. My friend just
sent me another email. Somehow this message was one
that she sent without checking into it first. (She
does check all of her sources before asking for
prayer, however this one so urgent she sent it first.)

After checking, she discovered that this happened in
1998, but, can we doubt? Prayers for Amanda went out
right away and Amanda is now healed. Praise the Lord.
God is so good to us. He does answer prayers! I would
like to ask you to please continue to uphold Amanda in
your prayers and ask for perfect health for her. God
Bless You.

4. Continue to pray for:

continue to lift up Keith for complete healing from
his brain tumour and for his salvation.
