Trophies of Intercession

 Dutch Sheets shares with us, “I will share one story, to illustrate. 

Cindy Jacobs, in her book Possessing the Gate of the Enemy, tells of walking in the watchman anointing at a kairos time. 

While attending a prayer gathering in 1990, she was awakened one night at 2:00 A.M. with a sense of alarm.

 As she waited on the Lord, He brought to her mind the picture of a couple and their three children, a family she knew was traveling in their van to the meeting. 

In this vision she saw a wheel on their van come off, causing a terrible accident.

Cindy began to pray fervently for their safety and continued throughout the night. 

Upon their arrival the following day, she asked if they had had any problems with the right wheel. 

Though they had not, Cindy insisted they go to a garage and get it check. 

The mechanic who inspected the van was amazed. 

He said there was no way they should have been ale to drive the van without the wheel coming off.

Upon returning from the mechanic, Cindy’s husband, Mike, who had accompanied the brother to the garage, held up a bag and declared, ‘The trophies of intercession.’ 

It held the old bearings from the right front wheel.

That is the watchman anointing in operation, sensing the danger at a kairos time and establishing boundaries (paga) of protection through intercession.”

Today’s Prayer Note # - The Trophies of Intercession, taken from Dutch Sheets’ book, Intercessory Prayer (pg 239)

The next Prayer Note: 2/19 Biblical Watchmen: Prayer Note #117

Let’s pray: Father, make me aware of the needs of others in their times of trouble. May I be found faithful in supporting them in prayer, and with other means of support, when necessary. In Jesus' name, amen

My personal prayer note:  Keep a small tablet near by during your prayer time, to jot down thoughts of things to do.

Today’s quote:  Joseph J. Mazzella: "Everything about living well and good and right is wrapped up in the arms of love. To love is to serve, to give, to be kind, and to help others. To love is to have joy and to bring joy as well. 

To love is to make this world a better place just by being in it. To love is to create a little Heaven everyday while still here on Earth. 

To love is to be the wonderful child, caring parent, tender spouse, fantastic friend, and beautiful person that you have always wanted to be. To love is to become the bright, shining soul that God meant for you to become. 

Fill your days with love then and you will have truly lived. Fill yourself with love and you will be the best possible you. Fill your life with love and your obituary will take care of itself."

Our thought for today:  Before the infilling of the Holy Ghost, Peter believed, but decided to go fishing...He was fearful and bewildered. After Pentecost, he preached to thousands the message Jesus had told them!  (see Acts 2:38-40)
