(04/11/2000) Hope of His coming
|hello prayer warriors
1. prayer note: Hope of His coming
[1 Corinthians 13:12]
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face
to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know
even as also I am known.
Since I've been growing up and getting older, I've had
a greater desire and hope of His second coming. I
would hope that He would come and I would hear the
sound of the trumpet and He would receive me in the
clouds. [1 Thessalonians 4:16-17]
The bible says that this day will come like a thief in
the night, no one will know when. But I anticipate and
I long to see God face to face, to know Him as I am
I thought that day nearly came about a few months ago.
I was asleep in my bed when suddenly I heard a lot of
thunder and this thunder was very unusual because it
was persistent and very loud and i think it almost
lasted for 10 minutes. The thunder caused my
neighbour's house alarm to go off and another car
alarm to go off. I heard my family members waking up
and there seems to be some commotion outside. The
electricity tripped and as it was about 3 am at night,
it was pitch darkness except for streaks of lightning
flashing across my window. For that one minute in the
darkness, I don't know why, I thought that maybe the
Lord has come to receive me. Then suddenly, in my
heart, I cried out. I said "No, I am not ready. My mom
is still unsaved, my business partner is still unsaved
and I started to see the faces of the unsaved people."
It was like I was pleading for things to be delayed so
that the people that I care about can be saved first
before judgment comes.
Of course, I found out later that it was just an
unusually heavy thunderstorm. But this thunderstorm
has created a sense of urgency for me to reach out to
What should we do? Find every opportunity to share the
gospel to others and share with them the love of
Jesus. As prayer warriors, pray for the lost souls,
pray for harvest time, name our unsaved friends one by
one and pray for their salvation.
2. New prayer requests:
i. Pray for healing -- tillyotoole
I have a boyfriend who is a quadraplegic. His name is
Dartanier Patton. He was injured in a diving accident.
He wasn't saved at the time, but now is. We are
believing the Lord for total and complete healing.
Please join us in praying for this. We stay in the
word and know that healing is always God's will. We
stand and hold fast to his promises. He has improved
slowly over time, but has a long way to go. He
receives therapy now but never did before. We know
that God is faithful.
Also, I am his sole provider and sometimes this gets
to be too much. He can't really do anything for
himself. I have to do a lot of physical lifting as
well as manage the household and tend to him . Please
pray for strength, mentally and physically for me. We
will endure until the end.
ii. Prayer for Richard -- guest
Please I ask that you stop by
http://www.kids-teens.org/richard/rich.htm and pray
for my husband and family... thank you so much
iii. God's justice -- guest
My name is Felix and I firmly believe in the power of
God, because I have experienced his power in the past
and to this day I still experience his power in my
life [Luke 18:1-5]. I am writing you this letter, so
you may pray in agreement with me, to God, in the name
of our Lord Jesus Christ, for the fulfillment of these
very important requests. Please pray for us and may
God Bless you for doing so.
[Matthew 18:19] - "And I tell you more: whenever two
of you on earth agree about anything you pray for, it
will be done for you by my Father in heaven."
May God grant me justice and victory in my court case,
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Also, may God
cause Justice to prevail in all court cases in the
world, for God loves justice.
[Psalm 103:6] - "The Lord judges in favor of the
oppressed and gives them their rights."
Thank you very much and may God Bless you and guide
you in everything you do.
