Many of us in this Discerning the Times list are actively involved in the work of prayer in various prayer engagements around the world. It is costly in many ways: emotionally, physically, and financially. I want to invite you to consider how to pray for us intercessors and how to give financially to advance the vision. Then I want to share exciting news about a new area of growth.
Sorry I have been slow in getting these Discerning the Times updates out to you. The reason is that the Lord seems to have had me stepping back some from direct prayer encounters.
He has moved me into a more focused strategic level work in which he is helping me discern and articulate the Holy Spirit’s big picture plans. This has led me into the laborious effort of working on what may be books III and IV in the series on the Prayer Strategy for the Victory of Jesus Christ.
These two volumes will deal with exposing and defeating Satan’s plans to destroy America and Western culture through a combination of demonic strongholds—Reactionary Conservatism (Radical Right), Liberal Progressivism (Radical Left), Magic and the Occult, and Radical Islam.
Working to get this finished before the Mountain Top Equipping, frankly, is like writing from a fox hole while under live fire!
Short of taking me out, it seems that Satan is doing everything he can to prevent me from getting this work done. Which means I must stay under the protection of Jesus Christ and persist. I have been reading Psalms 90 and 91 a lot these days.
The intensely focused work of writing and planning has been frustrating. I see urgent needs yet cannot directly engage in their intercessory prayer work.
But please join me in praising our Loving God who helps us overcome when we are in the battle.
- Praise God! The prayer work has continued to go forward through the leadership of the Holy Spirit. He is the one in charge of all of our prayer work.
- Praise God! for Martin Boardman’s leadership in raising up intercessors worldwide.
- Praise God! for you many intercessors and your several active cohorts. You continue to stand steadfast at your posts in the frontlines of this work of intercession.
I do have two requests for prayer which I believe the Lord is leading me to notify you about.
