        (07/09/2000) the 2nd W
hello prayer warriors,

1. prayer note: the 2nd W

We talked in the last email about developing
sensitivity to God's voice. I shared about my pastor's
message and that there are 5 Ws that we need to learn.

The first W : Withdraw

Here comes the 2nd W

[Habakkuk 2:1]
I will stand at my watch and STATION myself on the
ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me,
and what answer I am to give to this complaint. (NIV)

The 2nd W: Wait
I will station myself on the ramparts. I will wait. We
have to stay put and not be distracted and wait on

[Psalms 5:3]
In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the
morning I lay my requests before you and wait in
expectation. (NIV)

Many times we pray and we say our peace and lay our
requests before God but we stop there. We do not wait
because probably we do not expect to hear from God.
One of the most important things to do is to come in
prayer in expectation because this is an exciting time
with the Lord. If we expect and we wait for a reply,
then we truly understand prayer ... that prayer is an
exchange and a time for us to communicate with God. It
is not a monologue but a dialogue.

[Psalms 66:18]
If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not
have listened; (NIV)

Waiting and not hurrying also helps us to calm our
thoughts and emotions and to keep our conscience
clear. It is always good to come before God and
confess our sins and to keep our conscience clear so
that we can come, focus on God and not ourselves and
wait in expectation.

2. New prayer requests
i. what am I going to do? -- sabgreen
I'm a korean(female) christian. I want to be a art
missionary someday. but it's not easy. My mom doesn't
want ... and I don't have any information about that.
and ... I'm not good at English.

ii. Miracles -- richard
(waihun: this is an excerpt. Richard's daughter was
involved in an accident and has been in a coma. She is
now out of the hospital and she and her own children
are now staying with Richard. )

We ask for prayers that our needs would be met, our
finances are expended as well, and have all had to
endure the mounting bills and to absorb the additions
to our home. Many a night I lay awake and restless,
But I find comfort in His Word. I remember the
promises that our Lord has kept, the words that many
men and woman have shared over the years. It is
through the faithfulness of our Lord and by His Will
be done that I know that somehow someway, He will see
us through this ordeal! Our Lord ask us to... "prove
Him". Please stand with me in prayer, Please pray that
I not be alone, Please help me keep a dry eye and
focused on the Word of our trusted Savior and Lord of
Lords! Please pray that we find peace and strength in
Him. So many years I have found myself ministering to
others in sickness and in trials. Now I find myself in
need. As I wait upon the Lord, for his ways are
numerous and blessings fulfilling, let me be worthy of
His blessings as I know that He is worthy of our
praise and worship. Oh what a comfort I find in
expressing this dilemma and knowing that He is already
answering my pleas. He has already begun to heal and
restore my daughter. ...
I remain Your faithful servant and Your friend,
Richard DeGracia.
