"Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, I am there in the midst of them." (Matthew 18:19)

Dear Friend,

Trusting that all is well with you and your loved ones. We are finally heading towards Spring and I am sure that you will agree with me that it cannot happen quickly enough! This winter has been interesting to say the least.

I have had some really wonderful times with the Lord during our sub zero temps and snow. It was great to enjoy alone time with God in prayer, and I treasured those times. This is something we all need to do, because without it we could grow cold. We have a Savior who is just waiting for us to sit with Him and feast on His Word and fellowship with Him. Praise God!

Jesus also told us to not neglect assembling with one another in prayer. "...For where  two or three are gathered in My Name, I am there...." Wow, His very Presence is with us!  For quite a while there has been a prayer movement across the United States and in Europe. People of all ages have been gathering together to cry out to God for mercy and grace. It is amazing to see thousands of young people gathered together and crying out against abortion, against all that is spoken of in the Bible that God forbids, things that have grown to be the "norm" now in society. If you have God TV or other Christian television stations, you could see just what is happening, and it is awesome! Our youth are rising up for justice and change! Thousands of young people gather together to pray and seek God fervently! It is amazing to see this; it is an answer to prayer for many parents and grandparents! We cry out to God for their salvation, for the world to not get hold of them, and for them to press in without compromise and witness the salvation of our God! We pray for all to come to the knowledge of His Love and Grace, for parents, for grandparents, for all those in authority in our nation and cities and states. There is power in corporate prayer!

Church is not the same anymore. When we go to church on Sunday, we go with a hungry heart. We want to hear from Him! We want to join together with the Body of Christ in prayer! We want to learn, we want to move forward in our walk, to not just be a Sunday Christian. We want to take our faith to the streets! Christianity is not just going to church to fulfill our "duty." It is our lifestyle, it is who we are! It is above all knowing Jesus personally; it is following His Word for our life, not because we are forced to, but because we want to with all of our heart and soul. Church is a safe place where we can bring our cares and concerns to God, and the Elders will agree in prayer with us. It is a place where we can hear the Word of God, grow in Him, and then take it wherever we go. So many State rules are coming up now, forbidding the mention of Jesus. Why? Are these people so afraid of God that what we are saying may be the truth? Are they afraid that perhaps there is a heaven and a hell, and if they ignore it, it will go away? Do they think it Is childish to believe what we do? Then we are blessed! Jesus says to Come as a child!  "Truly I say to you, whoever does not accept and receive and welcome the kingdom of God like a little child [does] shall not in any way enter it [at all]" (Lk 18:17 Amplified version)  

How much do we want God?  How hungry are we for Him?

Houses of Prayer are opening up all across the land. Christians gather to worship, to give honor to God, to pray their heart prayers all in unison in one accord. Many of these Houses of Prayer are open 24 hours a day 7 days a week! People come in to seek God, to pray with one another, to cry out for those in authority, for the Peace of Jerusalem, for Israel, for places where war is going on. There is a Worship Team playing their instruments, who pray into these prayers in song and prophecy. Scripture is read and prayed into, and all are in agreement. Today, try this; say...: "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers."  (3 John 1:2 KJV) Then pray into that with "Above all things I am prospering and in health, and at the same time my soul is prospering."  Praise God! You have just spoken a blessing over your life!  We can take that Scripture and put our childrens' names in it, we can pray for our cities that monies will be used with integrity and honesty, that those in authority will choose what is right against even popular belief so that we can all be blessed by God.

Around the world we hear of conferences where hundreds or thousands of people go to, to hear the Word of God, to worship, to give praise, and to learn from the speakers. Prayers that go forth are joined in agreement by the attendees. Everyone is hungry for God, they want more! They take back to their churches and their family and friends what they have gained from these conferences. As a result churches get filled and families receive salvation, and they in turn go out to win the lost. I believe we have been in a period of an awakening for many years now, and it is going to suddenly explode! Churches will have to keep their doors open around the clock! The lost will come in weeping and crying out for God to save them! I believe that time is short, Jesus is coming soon, and He is coming for a spotless bride. While there is time, let us draw closer to Him than ever and join with others to pray in agreement. (Matt. 18:19)

Father, in Jesus' Mighty Name we come before You to worship You and honor You. Father, fill us to the brim with Your Holy Spirit. We want more of You Lord! We want to be ready in season for all that You are doing to capture hearts for Your Glory. Give us hungry hearts Lord, let us never be satisfied! Show us Your Glory! Pour Your Anointing upon us, in us, and through us so that we can fulfill Your purposes where we are, in our place of influence. Maranatha!  Come Lord Jesus! 

God bless you as you pray for others!
