PRESIDENT’S DAY WEEKEND

This weekend is known as President’s Day weekend. No matter what our personal opinions and thoughts are about our President and his family, and our Vice President and his family, we are called to pray for our leaders so that it may lead to quiet and peaceable lives for everyone in the land. Let us take time this weekend to do this.  If you’re not happy with something, turn it into an open ended prayer request and see how God will answer your prayer. Perhaps we can all agree to pray for lawfulness and not lawlessness.  We ask God for a peaceful way to listen and care for our fellow Americans.

 

“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men. For kings and all who are in authority that we may lead a quiet and peaceful life in all godliness and reverence (1 Timothy 2:1-2, NKJV).”

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER

Feedback from our last Open Hours…

Story:  One woman came in with 3 ailments, all of which included pain, and 2 prayer requests.  We prayed for one of the areas of pain first and she felt heat all over that area of her body.  The pain went down to 1 and the swelling went away completely.  Then we prayed for another part of the body and that also experienced heat and the pain went down to 0, and the stiffness wasn’t there when she tried to bend this part of the body.  Then we prayed for the 5 year old pain that hadn’t budged.  She felt heat all over her body and into the particular area.  The pain went down dramatically.  It was still going down as she left the appointment.  Praise God.  She is a nurse by profession, so she said she had had to overcome her scientific mind, which said healings don’t really happen.  She laid this mindset down before coming to the appointment and before we prayed. The team didn’t know this.  They simply prayed and the heat went up and the pain went down.  The woman left amazed at what God was doing in her body.

Q:  How was your experience today? 

“Really good.  The  both were great communicators and prayed wonderfully.”

“Good.  I’m glad I came.”

“Received a great word.  Very encouraging and blessed”

“Amazing! I felt the Holy Spirit at work.”

Q:  What did God do for you during your time at the Healing Rooms?”

“Make me feel special and to cast away fear/anxiety.”

“Reinforced for me that God sees me as His adopted son and is pleased.”

“God filled me with strength, courage, and faith in His healing and plans for my future so that I can glorify Him and draw closer to Him.”

HEALING TRUTH

Katie Souza often prays for healing by asking for the “glory light” of heaven to come into a person’s body.  As this happens, people get healed at both the physical and the soul level.

Souza bases this on Malachi 4:2. The Amplified version reads, “But unto you who revere and worshipfully fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness (meaning Jesus) arises with healing in His wings and His beams…” The word “beams” means there are beams of light.  The word for “healing” in the Hebrew is marpe which means, among other things, to be sound of mind. The mind is part of our soul.  It comes from the Hebrew root word, raphe, which means to be healed of your personal distresses.  So, the deeper meaning of this scripture is that Jesus Christ, the Sun of Righteousness, arises with healing for our souls that cause us to be sound of mind (marpe) and to be healed of our soul wounds, our personal distresses (rapha) through His wings and His beams of light. 

This helps to explain why physical and soul health are often linked.  When one isn’t right, clues are often in the companion component.  The Lord is capable and interested (and sometimes determined) to heal all parts of who we are. Our prayers that ask for the glory light go deep in asking Jesus, the Healer, to do all that needs to be done.  We praise Jesus that His goal is complete healing.

INTERCESSOR NOTES

Please pray for the team members.  We had a lot of people unable to attend last time, and also traveling.  The good news is that every appointment (morning and evening) had powerful results.  Praise God!

TO THE TEAM

Last Open Hours saw the team numbers dwindle a bit.  We didn’t have enough people for a Soaking Room minister in the morning.  Two visitors ended up offering to help host, which was lovely. Two visitors left without any prayer. 

In this season, there are challenges.  It’s time to rise up and war.  The good news is that we can expect to see victory when we press through the challenge.  One of our visitors said he didn’t feel well on the day of Open Hours.  He had had a headache.  But he said he really wanted prayer and came anyway.  He said the minute he walked through the doors, the headache went away completely.  And the words the team member had for him completely confirmed something significant the Lord has been doing in his life.  He was very glad he came.     

See you Tuesday!

NEW SEASON

We are in a new season of acceleration and suddenlies. It is time to pull your dreams out and ask God to breathe new life into then.  This year, God is fulfilling many of the things that have been promised and we haven’t seen fulfilled yet.  BELIEVE! TRUST! EXPECT!  It is time to look for God’s answers and blessings to many years of prayer.

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER

Feedback from our last Open Hours…

Story:  One woman reported that a picture image given to her in December in her prayer appointment had come back to her many times.  She said every time she thought of it, it continued to give her peace and joy.  She said the picture image was a living piece of hope for her.  It also gave her strength to believe with confidence for her complete healing as she is walking out the fullness of getting to health.

 

Q:  How was your experience today? 

“Wonderful. Prayer was great”

“Good”

“Very conforting”

Q:  What did God do for you during your time at the Healing Rooms?”

“Action Plan was formed for the New Year.  Thank you all!”

“Reveal to me changes are coming and to keep reaching.”

“Give confirmation on things going on.”

“Blessed me by speaking to my pain”

HEALING TRUTH

When we don’t get everything the way we want, it can be tempting to throw a pity party.  The problem is that Jezebel always comes to our pity parties.

 

Ahab’s offer to buy Naboth’s vineyard got refused. “Naboth said to Ahab, ‘The LORD forbid that I should give the inheritance of my fathers to you! (1 Kings 21:3 NKJV).” Jezebel came and asked dejected Ahab what the matter was.  Next, the good man Naboth was murdered.

 

Elijah had just defeated 450 Baal prophets before the people of Israel and declared “The LORD, He is God! The LORD, He is God! (1 Kings 18:39, NKJV).” Then Elijah ran for his life from Jezebel, and prayed that God would take his life.  An angel arrived before Jezebel found Elijah.  The angel spoke kindly and gave him food and rest.

 

Then God dialogued with Elijah.  God gave Elijah facts he didn’t know. “Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him (1 Kings 19:18, NKJV).”  And God assigned Elijah some prophetic duties.  Game On! Time to move out (take action) armed with updated information.

 

So the next time it’s tempting to throw a pity party, remember that Jezebel might come, and call it off.  Research the facts.  Armed with data God provides (or directs us to), it’s time to get back to the “work” of our destinies and purpose.

TO THE TEAM

Accelerated healings for 2018.  Our prayers are making a difference in people’s loves.  Even when we’re tired and we thought we had had our last appointment, the words and prayers you offer to that person are what they hang on to as a rhema word from God.

 HAPPY NEW YEAR

Happy New Year!!!

We are expecting good things from our Lord this year.

“Behold, I will again do a marvelous work among this people, a marvelous work and a wonder (Isaiah 29:14, NKJV).”

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER

Feedback from our last Open Hours…

Q:  How was your experience today? 

“Very encouraged! God does answer prayer. I know I am healed!”

“Fantastic. Thank you all! Merry Christmas!”

“Great. Feel stronger and hopeful.!”

“Amazing – very powerful.”

 

Q:  What did God do for you during your time at the Healing Rooms?”

“He blessed me with His healing and loving presence!”

“Give me hope of assurance.”

“He gave me his words and words of encouragement, powerful prayer & releasing sickness to the Lord.”

HEALING TRUTH

When Jesus sent out the 12 disciples in Matthew 10, he told them to heal the sick, raise the dead, cure those with leprosy, and cast out demons. When they got healed, Jesus said to say to them, “The Kingdom of Heaven has come near to you this day.”  This is what 2018 is going to be about.  We will pray for people and they will get well.  We will say to them, “The Kingdom of God has come near to you this day.”

God’s got a great plan for 2018!

INTERCESSOR NOTES

We ring in the New Year with Open Hours on January 2.  We are expecting God to do great things.  For some it will be the first day back at work after the holidays. Some will still be at home and getting ready to go back to college next week.  Some will use it as a travel day.  Keep asking God to bring team members as well to match the visitors He brings to our doors.

TO THE TEAM

Looking forward to seeing all God wants to do in 2018.  It begins with an Open Hours on January 2.  Come refreshed and ready to see God do amazing things.  Let the miracles of 2018 start now!

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Christmas is almost here! You are on God’s Christmas List. The list is not based on being good or bad; it’s based on relationship with Jesus. God gives what we can’t find in a store or order online: His Presence. God sent us Jesus. And He offers us the Holy Spirit to come and abide in us.  The Holy Spirit gives Godly love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. What do you want God to give you this Christmas?

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER

Feedback from last  Open Hours…

Q:  How was your experience today? 

“Really, really good time of sensing God’s word for my situation.  Encouraging.  I feel really blessed by the time with the prayer team members.”

“Amazing. My pain went from an 8 to a 4. It felt like I heard what I needed.”

“It was a wonderful experience and I feel that I’m going to be in a different direction moving forward.”

 

Q:  What did God do for you during your time at the Healing Rooms?”

“He gave me very specific words for my health issues.”

“God showed me and verified I have been on a good path.”

“He let me see he is still loving me—and that I must believe in him after I have been lost.”

HEALING TRUTH

“Behold, I will again do a marvelous work among this people, a marvelous work and a wonder (Isaiah 29:14, NKJV).”

What a great Sneak Preview for 2018: marvelous works and wonders!

Meanwhile, let us hold this truth that God is at work among us.

For those who face Christmas visits with family who seem to never change despite years of prayer…

For those who accept the pain with the conclusion that nothing will change…

For those who have dreams, and haven’t seen them fulfilled yet…

For those who took a direct hit of circumstances from the enemy in 2017…

For those who experienced unexpected loss….

For those who can’t feel God’s living touch this Christmas and feel alone…

Listen to the voice of God:

“I’m going to step in and shock them awake, astonish them, stand them on their ears. The wise ones who had it all figured out will be exposed as fools. The smart people who thought they knew everything will turn out to know nothing (Isaiah 29:14, MSG).”

This year He gives us the gift of His Hope, His comfort, His Presence, His breath of life, a renewed offer of salvation, and His healing power.

INTERCESSOR NOTES

Thank you for praying all year.  Our Christmas cards to you are filled with thankfulness for your prayers, and rejoicing to pause and reflect on all God has done this year. There are answers to prayers still trickling in. He’s continuing to answer your faith filled prayers.

TO THE TEAM

Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.  Come and show Jesus your joy by giving to others the gifts He has developed in you. May you be filled and overflowing with all you are doing with your time to serve and give. Truly, it’s a season of watching God answer prayer requests.  This season has been one of full circle.  As you have received, you now give. As you have given, you now receive.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Being thankful is the antidote to being entitled. It is good that America pauses once a year and takes a day to be grateful. We start with being thankful to God. He is our good God, and our good Father.

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER

Feedback from last month’s Open Hours…

Q:  How was your experience today? 

“Wonderful! I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit during prayer, reduced pain, and reduced anxiety.”

“Heaven-sent! Not at all what I expected, yet all that I needed. The waiting time allowed God to bless me with some of the books and booklets.”

“Very good, the Lord spoke to my heart through the ministers. Very glad I came.”

“It was amazing. Thank you God.”

Q:  What did God do for you during your time at the Healing Rooms?”

“God provided some pain relief and I noticed an immediate release in tension around my jaw, neck, and shoulders during prayer. Thank you so much!”

“God gave me assurances to “hang in there.” I am exactly where I need to be; there are no mistakes in trusting God and acting as though He is near and has provided, because He is and has and shall continue to do so. Hope for a future and the future is good.”

“Last time, I asked for prayer for my husband and son who both had lingering coughs.  It went away very quickly after being prayed for at SVHR! Thank you!”

“Freedom from stress, word curses and reduced pain.”

“God gave me joy and taught me that nothing is impossible.”

HEALING TRUTH

“Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day” (Psalm 25:4-5).

God likes it when we ask Him to show us His ways. He wants us to watch Him move in our lives and the lives of others. He does this so we can understand His ways.

Sometimes delays in answers to prayer cause us to stay with God and spend time with him. In this time, we learn.  As we wait,

  • we can learn and understand God’s ways
  • we can better understand God’s heart
  • we can trust God more
  • we can surrender our lives
  • we can walk fully in His word

All learning is preparation (molding) for the next level of glory. So let us continue to press in to God and His word.  Let us keep on knocking, keep on seeking and keep on asking. There are more answers ahead:  the one we asked for, and the bonus answers God has for each of us.

For further study, see Psalms 18:30-50, Psalms 25:4-10, John 14:14, James 4:3

INTERCESSOR NOTES

In this season of Thanksgiving, THANK YOU for praying so faithfully for the team and for Healing Rooms Open Hours.  May the Lord bless you throughout this holiday with fun surprises and in all the little joys He has for you.

TO THE TEAM

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  Our third Tuesday falls two days before Thanksgiving this year. As God nudges your hearts, please come and pray.  People have called, wanting to know if we are open. Come and be blessed in praying for people.  Holidays can highlight deep hurts in people’s lives. Come and sow the seed as God answers whatever your prayers are around Thanksgiving.

Healing Waters Flow in all Seasons

SEASON SHIFT

Autumn is here with the leaves turning and the air crisp, and colors changing. This year also brings a shift in the spiritual atmosphere.  As we receive yet another news story of mass murder, this time from a rural American church setting in Texas, one can feel God’s angel armies gathering at the prayers of the saints. It is a season for staying girded in the Word, equipped and ready as we continue to be praying watchman on the wall.

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER

Feedback from last month’s Open Hours…

Q:  How was your experience today? 

“Awesome!  Thank you all.”

“Felt warm in the area of pain and pain reduction.  Appreciate thehealing room ministers, very open.”

“A blessing to be prayed for and loved by the team. Thank you for your love and prayers.”

“Healing continues for me and my family.”

 

Q:  What did God do for you during your time at the Healing Rooms?”

“Encouragement and hope.”

“Gave me a word here waiting that He wanted to ‘drench me in His lovingkindness and that is what He did through you!”

HEALING TRUTH

“Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the man, ‘My friend, your sins are forgiven!’ (Luke 5:20, NLJV).

Jesus dealt with this man’s sins first and then the physical healing. God gives us forgiveness. Peace floods in.  The individual is then clear for God’s healing to flow in. We see this link between physical healing and inner healing.  When a person comes before Jesus and seeks forgiveness of their sins, God grants this.  And we often see the physical symptoms simply leave the body at that point.  If not, the same prayer for healing usually impacts physical changes immediately.

The pattern is the same.  First, deal with any sin through repentance and forgiveness.  Then deal with the illness through prayers for healing. For those who desire, there is release from bondage to addictions and recurring sins with complete freedom.  First the sin, then the healing, and then the freedom. Often times this is a cyclical process, with freedom coming in layers. It is one way we “work out our salvation (Philippians 2:12).”

INTERCESSOR NOTES

Your prayers are powerful and effective. Our team members continue to get stronger as they endure various trials.  In hardships, they lean on God, and come out victorious.  Their faith continues to increase.  And their testimonies give confidence and hope to those they pray with. Their authority levels bless the people they pray with and they see answers. Their wisdom grows. As does their joy.

TO THE TEAM

Thank you to all who came last Open Hours. If you aren’t “feeling” like coming, stop and ascertain exactly what the feeling is.  It’s likely something you are feeling for the people that will be visiting the Healing. Recognize this as a strategy of the enemy and pray against this in your circumstances. And pray against this in the lives of the visitors that the Lord is calling.  Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

PRAYING FOR OUR FELLOW AMERICANS

Prayers for all those impacted by the Mandalay Massacre in Las Vegas.  With 58 dead and 515 injured, this event will surely impact people we know.  Many will need healing and comfort.  May this draw people to God, and not away from God.  We need to ask God for wisdom in how we respond or what we allow anyone to tell us to conclude. May the Lord increase the gift of discernment in His people.  May we all ask for more discernment and ability to hear His voice.  May we respond wisely as He asks us to pray for “obscure” and unusual nudges. May we be aware of events or people that He highlights to us for prayer.  Even as we go about our lives, may we expand our prayer requests to pray for others at our offices, our schools, traveling on our freeways/streets, and at our airports, grocery stores, and banks. We ask for healing for those wounded and/or traumatized. Let us not complain, fret or live fearfully. Rather, let us speak words of faith, words of scripture, and words of hope.

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER

Feedback from last month’s Open Hours…

Q:  How was your experience today? 

“Great.  I praise God for what He has for me.”

“I am thankful for the opportunity to meet the Prayer Rooms “process” to the two team members who prayed over and with me.”

 

Q:  What did God do for you during your time at the Healing Rooms?”

“Today’s prayer session allowed me to better appreciate the ministry of healing here as a participant. Sharing of God’s love for all His children, and Jesus’ love for me. His role as a healer is an act of love.”

“Peace, Hope – knowing He is still working in my life.”

“He gave me more hope that through this power of God I have victory over the enemy.”

 

HEALING TRUTH

“We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life (Romans 6:4).”

Newness of Life. Something about that phrase resonates deep. The Hebrew year 5778 just began and it is a time to press in deeper seeking a new level of life.  In the very midst of our busy schedules, it is time to ask God for something new to pulse into our lives. There’s a new truth coming for some people to learn to stand on.  There’s a new revelation of healing for others.  There’s a new determination to surge forward, reach up, and grab hold of the fulfillment of His promises for this season.

Lord, let us have more of the fullness of life.  More love to penetrate deeper into our hearts.  More joy to bubble up in us.  More peace to stabilize us in the midst of life’s waves. Lord, we need more of you. Let us experience more of your glory.

 

INTERCESSOR NOTES

Toward His goals.  Continue to lift up the team.  God is continuing to train and equip every team member for His special purposes.  What the enemy sends to trip, discourage, or detain are the very climbing steps to take us to higher insights, anointing, and authority.

TO THE TEAM

Congratulations on a team effort last Open Hours to operate and minister to all who came for prayer.  He continues to answer the prayers you have prayed.  Looking forward to partnering with God for all He will bring for prayer tomorrow.

PREP FOR FALL

The dog days of summer are here.  As we enjoy the long days and move into the last part of our summer activities, we turn toward fall and start to think about preparation. God has good things prepared and He is finalizing many good things in all of us to be in step with what He’s getting ready to do. Let us open our hearts to what He wants to do.

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER

Feedback from our last Open Hours:

One woman’s pain went from a “6” out of “10” to a “0.” She writes, “I loved my experience today! It was exciting and everything is set up so nice….The [prayer team members] are so committed to learning about me and what my issues were.  I appreciated that they could understand what I was going through because of their own experiences…God gave them insight to pray for me.  Truly awesome.  Thank you!”

Q:  How was your experience today? 

“Great! The Lord touched and met me with His lovingkindness.”

“Wonderful”

 

Q:  What did God do for you during your time at the Healing Rooms?”

“I walked in with back pain and now I feel none! Praise God.”

“Open the door to His kingdom.  Thank you”

“Encouraged me. I am believing He has healed me.  Thank you Jesus!”

“Filled me with His word & truth”

HEALING TRUTH

In Matthew 13, Jesus explained why he spoke in parables.  His parables pointed out the “Hardened Heart Condition.”

13Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. 14 And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says:

‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand,
And seeing you will see and not perceive;
15 For the hearts of this people have grown dull.
Their ears are hard of hearing,
And their eyes they have closed,
Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears,
Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,
So that I should[a] heal them.’[b]”   (NKJV)

There is a cure for this condition.  Jeremiah gives the prescription (Jer. 5:24-26):

1.         Fear the LORD our God

2.         Deal with our iniquities

3.         Break the blockages from sin

4.         Turn our hearts toward God

These steps unlock our hearts to understand.  Jesus’ heart is to heal us – ALL the time! You are invited to come and pray with our team tomorrow

INTERCESSOR NOTES

Your prayers for team members to come and pray have been heard.  Thank you. Again! Please lift up the individual team members.  It has been a summer of stretchy faith growth. Joy, Hallelujah. Plus a lot of questions for God with opportunities and needs. We see great increase in prayer impact as they walk in victory.

Please pray for the opportunity to highlight SVHR by preaching at First Presbyterian Church on Sunday August 20.

If the Lord gives you a word or scripture, or a sense, please text it in.  They are always such a blessing.

TO THE TEAM

Sending you God’s HOPE for all you are going through.  It probably feels like a lot He’s asking you to do lately.  That’s because He’s preparing all of us for what He’s about to do.  Whatever He’s asking of you, yes, YOU CAN DO IT. With Excellence.  He’s positioning and aligning.  Be infused with excitement that He’s working on the final details to an accelerated and awesome time when His glory will be on display. “Now may the God of hope fill you with ALL joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”  Romans 15:13.

SUMMER TIME PRAYER

The Hebrew month of Av has arrived and it is a time of preparation.  There seems to be a lot of transition for many people.  It is a time to keep our ears open to what God is saying to our hearts.  As we align with God, He will help us cross our thresholds.

 

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER

People offered feedback from our last Open Hours.

Q:  How was your experience today? 

“Very peaceful.”

“It was really good and calming! They are really good at explaining God’s message”

“Positive.”

“Felt more peace when I left.”

“Good to express my feelings freely and get a prayer.”

“Refreshing – Encouraging – A blessing”

 

Q:  What did God do for you during your time at the Healing Rooms?”

“God gave me tremendous peace and confirmation.”

“He made me feel peace and optimism”

“Reminds me of all the times God was with me in my times of struggle”

“God gave me some peace.”

“He let me take off some stress and pains.”

“God confirmed some things & brought encouragement & more comfort.”

HEALING TRUTH

In the same Open Hours, we had someone come in for prayer about trying to get off of pain medication long after the surgery.  Later, there were two conversations during “Recap” at the end of the evening about families that are dealing with kids who struggle with addiction to pain killers.  The media describes high achieving successful people who take drugs to rev up for their busy work days and later take different drugs to get to sleep.  Medications are more available for people than ever before.  God is giving people His healing power to walk victoriously out of addictive medication cycles.  As this happens, they pray with power and authority and the confidence that says, “If He healed me, He can heal you.”  God is raising up people with this authority to break the cycles that are in every socioeconomic level of society.  He is already preparing the answer for what He knows people will be asking Him for in the coming days.

 

“It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer, and while they are still speaking, I will hear.” Isaiah 65:24

 

INTERCESSOR NOTES

God gives strength to the weary.  And jury duty to some of our team members. Please pray for God’s supernatural ability to nudge the team members to minister for all those He knows will be coming tomorrow.  And grace for anyone who might have to wait for a prayer team availability.

 

TO THE TEAM

Thank you to all who came last week.  Our morning team got stretched by the number of people coming for prayer.  Our evening team ended early. The Lord’s reward to each of you matches the commitment it takes to come ready to pray.  Thank you for your faithfulness.  Your faithfulness is making you all more like Jesus.  His faithfulness is our shield and buckler.  Your faithfulness brings unity, strength and joy to the body of Christ. Thank you! Please take a few minutes to pray with us (from wherever you are as you read this) for all that God will be doing during Open Hours tomorrow.

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER

People offered feedback from our last Open Hours. Below are some quotes for our visitors:

Q:  How was your experience today? 

“Very Helpful.”

“Awesome!”

“This was an appointed time to come here and receive confirmation of my calling.  It was a true blessing from God.”

“Felt much lighter after prayer”

“Fantastic – I’m a visual person and the “word picture” given to me by 1 of the prayers resonated greatly with me.”

 

Q:  What did God do for you during your time at the Healing Rooms?”

“Helped calm me down.”

:He cleared the cotton out of my ears and gave me a gift. I leave with a full heart and I will be forever grateful.”

“Strengthened my faith. I felt cared for – supported – God does answer prayer!”

“He reminded me to keep going forward.”

 

HEALING TRUTH

Some people get healed just being in the presence of God.  We have already seen God’s presence of peace come during the Prayer Team’s time of worship in our new location.  Atmosphere is so important for shifting people’s faith from wondering IF God can heal them to knowing they are coming to pray to the God for whom nothing is impossible.

 

Part of coming to the Healing Rooms may include having a scripture word of God come alive for an individual’s situation.  Proverbs says, “My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart (Proverbs 4:20-21).” I encourage everyone coming tomorrow to ask God for a verse ahead of time that may resonate with you as LIFE for the people you are praying for.

 

“For the word of God is LIFE to those who find them and healthy to the man’s whole body (Proverbs 4:22).” Let us all become students of the Word of God.

 

INTERCESSOR NOTES

Please pray and see what verse the Lord gives each of you for the people coming to Healing Rooms on July 18. Email or text by end of day today (whatever first comes to mind) and we can prepare that for the team.
