        (11/12/2000) protecting your spirit man
Hello prayer warriors,

1. Prayer note: protecting your spirit man

[Proverbs 20:27]
The spirit of a man is the lamp of the LORD, searching
all the inner depths of his heart.

We've talked in the last email about the real you and
that your spirit man is the one who is most sensitive
to the Spirit of God and can communicate with God.

[2 Cor 7:1]
Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us
purify ourselves from everything that contaminates
body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence
for God. (NIV)

It is possible for our spirit man to be contaminated.

One of the ways is by having fellowship with the wrong

[2 Corinthians 6:14]
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers:
for what fellowship hath righteousness with
unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with

We are in the world but not of the world and it is
important who we mix with. I've heard a tape by a
financial guru and one of the keys of his success was
mixing with the right people.

We sometimes undermine the importance of this. Even
though we need to reach out to others and have
friends, but who do we get advice from? How many times
in your life have you gone the wrong way and done the
wrong things because you did not get the advice of
God-fearing people.

One of my friends used to mix with a group of people
who were depressed. She says that after every session
with them, she feels even more depressed and a little

[Luke 1:41]
And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the
salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and
Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

John the baptist was filled with the Holy Ghost while
in the mother's womb because his mother Elisabeth came
into contact (not even physically touching but they
were near)
with Mary who had Jesus in her womb at that
time. There is a transferrance of spirit when we come
together. Anointing can be imparted. In the same
manner, negative spirits can also be imparted.

How do we then mix with the right people? You need to
be in a church that encourages fellowship among
believers. If you feel that your spirit man is
contaminated because of wrong fellowship, make a
commitment to fellowship with the right people and
pray for God to bring the right people into your path.
The best place to meet the right people is in a good
church. If you are not already attending church, make
a commitment to do so. Many times, our lives and the
paths that we take depend on this.

[Proverbs 11:14]
Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the
multitude of counsellors there is safety.

2. New prayer requests:
i. prayer for dear friend -- christiandeb
Pray for a dear friend of mine, who wishes to remain
anonymous . She is suffering from Fibromyalgia &
Chronic Fatigue & a variety of other disorders. She
really needs healing. She is a christian, but at
present, is having a real battle. Please, please pray
for her.

ii. my grandmother -- d_korie
My grandmother has just been diagnosed with breast
cancer. She is really scared & I feel that I can't
comfort her. She has always done everything to keep
her in good health, but she doesn't know what
happened. We, my grandmother & I, are really super
close. We share a lot of the same feelings & right
now, she is one of my few outlets for frustration. I
don't know where I would be without her. The even more
scary part is that breast cancer is genetic. My mom,
my sister, & I could all get this horrible disease. I
am really scared not for myself but for my
grandmother. Please pray for me.

iii. need serious answers & guidance from God -- guest
Im a 22 year old male who is searching for answers.
I'm very frustrated & disappointed right now. It seems
the harder I have tried in life, the worse things have
got. I believe in God & always have, but I do not
trust him anymore, and have not for years. I feel like
I will always be one of those "just started, but never

finished projects sitting on the shelf in the garage",

in God's economy. I just wish he had different plans
for me. I know I have potential, but I'm convinced
I'll never get a chance to show it.

iv. Pray for neil -- judy
Christian greetings from the United arab Emirates. I
have a Christian friend who finally decided to
surrender his life to God - his name is Neil. He is in
a constant struggle against his old ways & his desire
to follow God. I can see his desire to really follow
God but he is really attacked by satan both physically
& emotionally. Pray for him that God will give him the
strength to say no to sin & and to stand up for his
commitment to Christ. Pray also for healing. He is
suffering from severe chest pain due to a fall/bruised
chest. I believe that through all our prayers, revival
in this land will come & salvation upon salvation will
be brought about.

3. Prayer update:
i. God does answer prayers!! Please read!! - bina
(excerpt:)updates for my sister, Michelle Rose Baker.
The accident occurred on 10/5/00 & after many surgical
procedures while she was at UK Med. Center in
Lexington, Kentucky. Yesterday 11/8/00 she was
transferred to Hazard ARH Rehabilitation Unit in
Hazard, Kentucky (which is much closer to home) for
therapy to learn to walk & regain the use of all her
muscles again!!This only reinforces what I already
knew was possible.. MY GOD DOES HEAL!! When she was
flown to UK Med Center on 10/5/00.. one of the nurses
informed me that when she arrived at UK, the team that
was working with her had called back to Whitesburg &
informed them that there was no hope, she wasn't going
to live. This only goes to show that my God is in
complete control! thanks to everyone who prayed, Bina
