Urgent Plea for Prayer
Whatever you do, hold on. Keep praying. STAY THE COURSE. I have experienced that when you answer the call of God to pray, you will experience a mighty move of God because of your faithfulness.
This image is from the Sanctuary of the Agony of Jesus Basilica of Gethsemane in Israel. This tree is over 2000 years old. What do you see when you take a look at this image? I am sure this tree has faced many challenges. Imagine the roots that have grown deep and wide. This is just like our prayer life. Each day we pray, we are growing deeper relationship with Jesus. At this point we are being drawn to pray. Our journey of collective prayer with my book Urgent Plea for Prayer will soon come to an end. I encourage you to stay the course. Don’t stop praying.
We have been praying for 25 days. We have been diligent, steadfast, and unmovable. We have been tried, frustrated, and at times perplexed. We have been pressed, pushed, but we have remained prayerful. Think about wind blowing, and a tree. Imagine as the wind blows, so does the Holy Spirit. As I illustrate the tree, the blowing wind, and leaves, imagine a wind that practically takes a tree to the point of almost breaking, but it bounces back to a straight position.
This illustration is no different than our life with Jesus. Trouble may come. Things may be shaken. At times it may seem gray and hopeless, but with God the Author and Finisher of our faith we are in great hands. Get ready for your suddenly. You’ve stood this test and prayed, and interceded on behalf of others. You never gave up. Your change in season is approaching. The shaking you are experiencing is just a prelude to the overflowing of God’s blessing that is upon you. Be filled! Hold on! STAY THE COURSE! KEEP PRAYING! Your greater is here. Now receive!
