In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I wrote about how I am still waiting to know whether or not I have a capable surgeon to do the operation I need, as soon as possible. And, I wrote about how I am trusting my Lord, for this.
I must say I am grateful that God has provided me friends who are supportive of me.
People who show me their concern for my situation. Those who encourage me. And, care enough about me, to pray for me.
After all, prayer is powerful.
Here is a link to a Youtube video by Pastor Charles Lawson entitled, https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=RGNT95Un22E. It's about intercessors and prayer.
Many people from various walks of life, are praying for me. Thank you, so very much, my friends! May God bless each and every one of you...
One such couple are friends of mine, J & B Franklin. They have a ministry that I have posted a link to, on my blog reading list.
Here is a link to their prayer page: http://www.cos-had.org/cos-had-4/prayors.html
A while back, we spent quite a long time on a long-distance telephone call. While I prayed for them, they prayed for me.
The prayer they did was very different than what most people pray. You see, their ministry is directed at removing demons from the life of those who believe on our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Some people don't believe that generational curses and other curses can affect a believer's life, but it seems they do.
You see, you may not be aware of this, but one of my grandmothers used to read tea leaves, and was considered to be psychic. This is representative of the occult. And, those generational curses can affect one's life.
In addition, J & B are very aware of the work I do for Christ, in speaking up about how Islam is affecting the world, today.
They know that I not only speak up, but also pray for those who practice Islam. And, they realize that there are some Muslims who pray against me.
So, our prayer time was very different, as I mentioned. Still, I was grateful for what they did for me.
Believe it or not, after I got off the phone, my abdomen that had been intensely swollen and painful, wasn't quite the same. The swelling went down, and so did my pain level.
For this, I praise God! And, praised God for my friends, who had interceded in praying for me. Thank you, J & B! May God bless you, my friends...
After all, there is truly no medication that will do this for me. So, I know it had to be as a result of prayer.
Knowing that I pray for those who do not agree with me and what God has led me to do, reminded me of Matthew 5:44, "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;"
Knowing that there are people who are non-Christian, who do not love me, but rather... have ill feelings towards me, I will continue to speak up, just as God told us to do.
And, I will continue to pray for them, plant seeds for Christ whenever I can, and show them love in any way possible.
Until next time...
