Prayer Warriors – Intercessors

image

The one who prays imparts understanding.”*

In Heaven

The Prayer Warriors are interceding on our behalf right now.

The Prayer Warriors are our Prayer Partners in heaven.

When one experiences her/his Prayer Warrior, she/he gets a true glimpse of God’s good in heaven.

God’s angels have a special place in heaven and they all have different jobs.

What a miracle it is to know that a being of the angelic realm cares for us; about our needs, with the end result or final word resting with God.

Catholics believe in the power of Intercessory Prayer; praying to a saint, one who has walked the earth before to storm the throne room of heaven on our behalf.

What a comfort it is to know that our requests are being handled with loving care. We also have Prayer Partners on earth!

On Earth

As Prayer Partners on earth, we intercede in prayer for one who has a special need and has asked us to stand with them and pray for them. We also ask others to support with us when we have a prayer need.

Recently, I called upon my “Two Listeners”, a prophetic couple to pray for me. I asked for their intercession and received spiritual words of comfort and truth.

As they sent me this wonderful intercession via a technical avenue, I was able to save the powerful words they sent me. As they were praying for me from a distance, I stood in agreement by placing my hand over my heart; speaking the words over myself, knowing they were praying with me, “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I stand in the midst of them.”

In My Father’s House, there are many mansions and there is a whole lot of praying going on; on earth as it is in Heaven.” Amen!

Who Is It That You Look For? Part 3

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for; the conviction of things not seen.” (Heb. 11:3)

 

Perhaps your faith has been tested. You are not alone.

Here is the 2nd stanza of the poem: Who Is It That You Look For? Is it I, He?

I felt alone and weary. My body ached and cried.

I did not want to leave you. I didn’t want to die.

In the midst of a darkened hole, upon a stone slab bed;

I was no longer alone, without a place to lay my head.

My father he was with me, listening through it all.

The ground and walls shook hard as I answered ‘your’ call!

The sun rose so high on that Sunday morn’.

My clothes were white and dazzling, not a stitch was torn.

In the sleep I awoke to a brand new me. (DMOL, Patricia A. Zorn, pg. 57)

For Week 2, think about this:

“By faith we understand that the universe was created by God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.” (Heb. 11)

Risen Jesus, in your Gospel we discover such a clear hope. It sustains faith even in situations where there seems no way out.” (Bro. Roger, pg. 16)

Who Is It That You Look For? Part 2

“Are you the one we should be looking for? Or must we wait for someone else?” (Mt. 11:2-3)

PrayingforOthers

When John was in prison, he was aware of Jesus’ ministry. He sent some of his companions to ask Jesus “Are you the one?”

I hope you have settled into your Sacred Space, taking time to ponder the question, “Who Is It That You Look For?”

For Week 2, here are a few suggestions:

Find a comfortable pair of shoes and get ready. Some of the terrain you walk upon might be a bit unstable; don’t lose heart. Unexpected events and the strain of life can wear you down and this will have a long-term effect on the state of one’s Spirit that is unsettled or disturbed.

Remember, there is wonder and joy ahead; even if you have to endure a few trials along the way, it won’t last.

 

Who Is It That You Look For? Is it I, He?

I trudged the road of destiny through every rock and toil.

I felt my face perspire amidst the sandy soil.

My journey was long and hard, and yet through it all,

I did it for humanity; I did it for you all!

You came upon my burial site, a place that was not my own.

You did not believe in me when I traveled to your home. (DMOL, Patricia A. Zorn, pg. 57)

Maintain your spiritual foundation and your faith. “It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold.” (1Pt. 1:6-8)

 Jesus said, “I was condemned because of who I was. I wanted man to see me, but he/she did not have eyes to see or ears to hear.” (DMOL, pg. 17)

Is God Listening?

Hands1

God, Thank you for not rejecting my prayers!” (Ps. 66)

As we walk together during a most troublesome time on the planet, many are asking this question, “God are you listening?” Yes, God is listening!

Many of you are frightened about what tomorrow will bring. It is important to stay in today. Keep your eye on the task in front of you. As you know, everything is changing in the moment.

There is fear. There is anger and there is prayer. If you find yourself not able to do anything else; take time to hold yourself up to the light everyday, pray and be.

Remember, you are never alone and you will never be abandoned. You have the greatest tool in your possession, the ability to pray. It does not cost anything. It does not weigh anything. You can do this in the silence of your heart.

If you feel timid or alone in your ideals of prayer, start with something simple: “God, please help me”. It is the intent of one’s prayer and not the ritual that is so important now.

Your tools and gifts are needed. Your help in raising the consciousness of man is needed. Your light and love is needed; and most of all your prayers for one another are needed.

Don’t forget, God is Listening!

My Beloved Child of God, Do not be dismayed nor discouraged. It does not matter if you fumble in the process of creating a prayer life with me. My Spirit resides within you and is not limited by anything or anyone.”

God knows the deep stuff that plagues our emotional world. When the storms of life hit, we want help.

Awakening the Inner Ticker of Life is a port between man and God; allowing one to expand her/his horizons by connecting to the Spirit within through the power of prayer.

Prayer of Protection

“Lord and Holy Protector, like the disciples who were caught in their tiny boat in the midst of a mighty storm, we come to beg Your Help.

We are fearful and feel helpless and small before the great power of this storm, which is beyond our control.

While everything seems dark and dangerous, we place our trust in you, our Lord and God.

Sheltered here in our home, we are also shielded by Your Love against all that might harm us.

Lord, we fear for our home, for our lives and for all we hold dear.

Lord, your Sacred Blessing is upon this home and upon each of us as well. We are secure in the power of that blessing.

May the saving power of the Cross of Your Son, Jesus, encircle our home and us.

May the Sacred Sign of the Cross repel all harm and injury.

Lord and Creator of Storms and of Rainbows, be with us in this time of uncertainty.”

Amen +

Where Can We Meet God?

This time of year, the period of Advent (a time of preparation) into Christmas (Season of Light) is when a seeker will move from a space of solitude into a place of hope through the power of prayer.

We can meet God in prayer.

Prayer is the language of love; love from the Father, a rightful blessing for Children of God that seek Him so.
