Prodigal Prayer Ministry

PrayerConnect for March 21, 2017 Prodigal Prayer Ministry     Recently I took a group to Idaho to do prayer walks. I’ve learned great insight can be gleaned by talking with the locals when I am in a new area. It did not take long to realize there was a large group of prodigals connected to this church.  It didn’t take long in talking with the parents and friends to feel the heaviness of their longing for their prodigals to return. This same conversation has taken place in many of the areas I have visited of late. There seems to be […]

The Point of Release for the Miraculous

PrayerConnect for March 7, 2017 The Point of Release for the Miraculous   Anyone educated in prayer knows that you must pray the will of God for the request to be answered. Praying otherwise is ineffective, no matter how right it sounds to us. Sometimes however, we pray according to the will of God and become frustrated when that prayer is not answered. We know that part of the will of God is preaching to the lost. Yet, Paul was sometimes denied by the Spirit to go to an area to preach. Does this contradict the mission and will of God? David was king, and […]

Expectancy: “The Master’s Touch”

PrayerConnect for February 21, 2017 Expectancy: “The Master’s Touch”   “If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole” (Mark 5:28).   Expectancy is defined as the state of thinking or hoping that something, usually pleasant, will happen. It is the anticipatory belief or desire of something that is expected.   “Expectancy is the atmosphere for miracles. “A lady that is expecting in the natural indicates that a birth is forthcoming. Truly, childbirth is a miracle…a new creation. The woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5:28 expected a miracle. If she touched Jesus, with expectancy, then surely she knew that He would touch her […]

Effectual Prayer

PrayerConnect for February 21, 2017 Effectual Prayer   This past weekend, I this the priviledge of taking  a group to Lewiston, Idaho to do prayer walks. Our main focus was praying for the lost.  As the weekend progressed, we also began to pray for backsliders.  After two full days of praying, we stayed over for New Life Apostolic’s Sunday service. (the photo on the right shows some of the group praying from a mountain that overlooks the city)  The pastor shared the following report with me today. Saturday evening a backslider called and asked what time service started on Sunday.  Her […]
