(03/13/2000) Face to face
|Hello prayer warriors,
1. Prayer note: face to face
And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I
have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.
And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him,
and he halted upon his thigh.
Jacob wrestled with God and had to finally yield when
his own physical strength was broken, when God touched
the hollow of Jacob's thigh and broke it. What did
Jacob say when he looked back at his experience of
brokenness? He called the place Peniel: for he has
seen God face to face. That's what happens when we go
through our experiences when we feel that our strength
is exhausted and we think that we can't go on any
more. If we stop depending on our own strength and
yield to God, we will look back and call our
brokenness experience Peniel, because there we have
seen God face to face. And what happened when Jacob
finally yielded? The sun rose over him. God showed
him a brighter tomorrow.
2. Prayer update:
i. update on Jack (URGENT) -- 1111
Little Jack has had a couple of major setbacks.
His infections have gotten worse, and they now have
found out that he has "golden staff". He has had to be
put onto the respirators to help him breathe. He has
an inflammed throat where the tubes are going down his
throat. If the v/v in his heart does not close in the
next couple of days, they will have to open up his
heart and stitch it close as the blood is bypassing
his lungs. His lungs are now filling up with liquid
and need to be sucked out every hour, until his blood
flows through them.
Please everyone, lift Jack up, bring him up
continually in your prayers.
ii. update on keith -- sandy
keith is now on steroids to make him hungry and gain
the weight.he shows very little trouble to the drug.he
still holds strongly to the idea that only the prayers
are helping him through this.this is touching me in
ways you will never imagine! i never thought that all
our friends were so open minded to this and what he
says to them they have come to believe in the strength
of our Lord
Praise God for Keith's improvement. Continue to lift
him up, his health and especially his salvation.
iii. healing for cancer -- alon
alon has just emailed me and told me that she has
given us the wrong first name for this prayer post.
His name is not Dale but Glen Redekopp. She apologises
for the mistake. Please continue to lift Glen up.
P.S. Don't worry, I think God knows who we are praying
for even if we have the wrong first name :)
