By now you expect to see a photo, a story, a plea. I’m laying aside all these today in lieu of a call to prayer. Today is Day 12 of 40 days of asking God for 40 new monthly financial partners, 40 new special projects partners, and 40 prayer partners.
Rather than seeing scores of new prayer partners and financial partners, we’d say we’ve seen an increase in spiritual warfare 40 times greater than normal (how does one quantify this sort of thing?) we’ve seen the enemy attack at any and every weak spot we have and we’ve seen a hate-filled, bare-knuckles beating occur. It has been brutal. . . we can’t say that we’ve enjoyed any of it. Once upon a time we might have thought of finding the next boat to Tarsus (and away from Nineveh.)
The sheer intensity of attack is telling. We are on the road to something transformational, foundation shaking, and spiritually significant in heavenly places.
Please pray for us as we endure the challenge before us:
- Pray that God will cause us to stand in the evil day.
- Pray that God will give us spiritual wisdom, understanding, and discernment to know how best to overcome in this season of opposition.
- Pray that God will indeed raise up 40 new mature and wise prayer partners to stand with us in the gap.
- Pray that He will grant us victory in this intense spiritual battle that is being waged.
- Thank God for mercies extended already.
- Thank God for giving us the power to plod through intense opposition.
- Thank God for what He is already putting together to get us from here to there.
Thanks for praying!!!
