|Hello prayer warriors,
1. Prayer note: the 3rd W
We covered developing sensitivity to God's voice. We
mentioned 2 of the 5 Ws.
The first W : Withdraw - get alone in a quiet place
The second W: Wait - calm your thoughts and emotions
The third W ...
I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower,
and will WATCH to see what he will say unto me, and
what I shall answer when I am reproved.
Why do we not just hear from God? Why do we watch?
Because many times, God speaks to us through mental
pictures, through impressions or through visions. We
see something in our mind.
How do we know whether what we see is from God? You
can review the prayer email archive for the series on
checking what we hear (in line with...).
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he
that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with
the wind and tossed.
7 For let not that man think that he shall receive
any thing of the Lord.
Again, we need to watch with expectation. When we can
understand that, we can understand one of the simple
ways that God speaks to us.
2. New prayer requests:
i. Family -- barcelorosa
Please, pray for our family. My husband and I, are
separeted for one year. I'm not sure to divorce of
him. Thanks. Excuse me, if you don't understand,
because I speak Spanish and I don't sure if I write
correct my request.
ii. Financial stewardship -- mr_blansit
For quite some time, I have felt very depressed and
feel as though I've been in a malaise. Our family has
paid our tithe off and on. We have recently begun to
pay our tithe again. Please ask the Lord to help us to
continue. Also, please ask the Lord to help us be good
stewards of those things he places in our discretion.
There are members of my family that I'd like to help
financially but, I always seem to be in a financial
crunch, even though we tithe. Please ask the Lord to
give me the proper perspective on money, wealth, and
possessions. Also, ask the Lord to heal my heart,
soul, and mind.
iii. Perfect health for my mom -- waihun
Dear prayer warriors, My mom has just been diagnosed
with breast cancer. We have already removed the lump
by wide excision and now the doctor has suggested that
we remove all the lymph nodes near her arm. We do not
know what to do now because we are afraid that removal
of the lymph nodes might be painful and traumatic for
her. We are going to get a second opinion. Please pray
for wisdom from the doctors that we approach and that
we will have wisdom for the next step. The good news,
however, is that through this experience, my mom
accepted Christ. Please pray for spiritual hunger and
for her to draw closer to God too. Thank you.
