SVHR OPEN HOURS are August 16 from 11am – 1pm and 7pm – 9pm
August 16, 2016 SVHR
Several families have contacted us lately with requests to come and cleanse the atmosphere of their homes. As we confer with our Healing Rooms family and network, this interest seems to be increasing in many places. Our ministry works closely with M16 Ministries that helps people worldwide experience victory during spiritual warfare battles. Michael Norton, Director and author, has written a book called A Field Guide to Spiritual Warfare. Chapter 14 is titled, “Establishing a Beachhead: House Blessing.” It’s an excellent resource for issues in this arena.
GOD ANSWERS PRAYER
Sometimes the Prayer Ministers’ role in an appointment is to affirm what the individual “thinks” they heard from God, but aren’t quite sure. They may not even state this in their Prayer Request section. In three appointments during our last Open Hours, what the Prayer Team saw in advance was the same picture image or scripture that the Lord had shown them before, either individually or through another person. This acted as confirmation that the message was indeed from God.
Several individuals came in with heavy hearts and depression. In each case the Lord met them with specific words. There were people forgiven, curses broken, and multi-generational patterns addressed, and sins of the land repented for. Each time the person left feeling lighter. Prayer is a powerful weapon. People may know about these kinds of matters. Praying in appointments with Prayer Ministers who hear from God adds agreement to their prayers. Matthew 18:19.
“For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure..” Phil 2:13 AMP
God has placed you where you are for His purposes. You are God’s agent in this season. You are not in the wrong place or just biding time. The Lord is at work in you now. As you seek Him, He lets you know His will. He has a plan for you to fulfill the work you are uniquely designed to do on earth. If anyone is not on track, He has ways of letting us know this too, often through Holy discontent. Facing a challenge does not mean you are in the wrong place. It creates an opportunity for us to invite God into our circumstances and allow Him to create a way through and/or over every obstacle we face.
He’s got you in position to work out His good purposes wherever you currently are. God has abundant hope for you in this. Romans 15:13. God has resources for you and invites you to request them. “His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life…” 2 Peter 1:3.
You are designed for success in all you do. “Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.” Proverbs 16:3
May you know this truth and bless others with it.
For those of you who know Cindy Jacobs, you will recognize this phrase of hers: “Get Your Shields Up.” It is a season for our shields to be up. For our ministry (and yours.) For our nation. For our cities. For our families. Whenever possible, reach across the aisle and join hands with one who needs it. Speak God’s heart and continue to keep them in prayer. Thank you for keeping our team and Open Hour Appointment times in prayer.
TO THE TEAM
Once again, God coordinated the exact number of Prayer Team Ministers with visitors. The morning time had many visitors and we had to gather for a group prayer time toward the end to accommodate everyone. The issues that came through the doors seemed to be “heavy” and long term. As we see patterns and themes come up during an Open Hours, we try to have references and/or materials available. If you see any topic that needs more materials or reference, please share, and bring in what God has you studying. There is no coincidence with what God brings to your attention in advance of what He plans to use in a Healing Rooms appointment. God uses every teaching tidbit to edify and encourage the body of Christ—and you!
Blessings to you who teach! Blessings to you as your kids begin a new year of school. God has new resources for each child as they start the new year. Be asking God about your children and students. As well as asking God about other people’s children and students. Ask God to highlight those who aren’t getting any prayer, other than your prayers.
May the Lord direct your steps, and make them productive during this summer season. Keep asking in prayer for more resources to fulfill His plans for you. 2 Peter 1:3
He has good things stored up for all of us in the Healing Rooms tomorrow!
