O sing to the LORD a new song, for He has done marvelous things. His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory.
God on high, I am pleading with all my heart that Your strength and Wisdom will be awakened in these beloveds, that Your Spirit will arise, that these flickering flames will neither be extinguished nor hidden under bushels. Instead, Your Light will shine forth from the brokenness. Your Overcoming Light can never be extinguished.
For these beloveds, supposedly, have a relationship with You, Father through the Son and by the Holy Spirit. Please, God, break through! Break into their natural world to reveal Your supernatural realm. You have told us that no one can know the spiritual things of God except by the Spirit of God. You have told us that’s why we need to be “born again” -- not of the flesh into which we were borne by water, but into the spiritual realm, into which we are borne by Your Holy Spirit. Rebirth, I pray, O God Most High. Reveal by Your Holy Spirit the things that You have freely given to us!
It is impossible for the natural man to see the things of the Spirit -- You have told us this. The things of God will be foolishness to him, but to those who are “born again” by the Spirit.
I pray for these beloveds to be BORN AGAIN by Your Spirit that they might see and know the things You have so freely given us, and that they might obtain the mind of Christ. Guide them, I pray, into discipleship, revealing Who You say You are in personal way so they know You are real and available completely to help and lead them into their eternal purpose.
Prodigal sons! Come to Your Father Who is in heaven, carried there by the wind of the Holy Spirit into the True Body of Christ. Sing with joy to realize you are SAFE at last and FREE at last, and be radiantly JOYful to be set into God's purpose for your Life in Him, forever and ever.
My hope is in the fact that You, LORD, have already done many marvelous things, Your right hand and Your holy arm have gained many victories to make known Your salvation. You have proven to me that You are with us in weakness, in fear, in trembling, and that You are able to penetrate the darkest night -- not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but with demonstrations that You are real and all we need.
I thank You now for the rebirth of these beloveds, for Your encouragement to those of us who surround them, lifting them to You and leaving them to Your Amazing Grace! We know You work ALL these things with a man in order to bring his soul from The Pit that he may be enlightened with the Light of Life. We know that our wound is incurable without You; we pray You will reveal this to them who we love. Cause them to cry out, “God, if You are real, I need Your help!” And then, O God, make Your elf known. Bear them by Your Spirit to see You and the radiance of Life in You, to Your glory, not our own -- that You are all we need, both now and forever. Amen!
