I have to be honest...the last few weeks have been difficult for me. Although I have continued praying for our nation and our State, I have hit a wall of discouragement. Maybe you have, too. A few days ago, I sensed the Lord saying,"The hardest times are right before the "birth" (breakthrough). Keep going!' Think about this...What would have happened if the children of Israel had stopped marching around the walls of Jericho on day #6? This morning, Chere forwarded me a message from Lana Vawser's ministry. I have been trying to follow Lana over the past few weeks. I was especially encouraged by these words in her message today:
Hi Friends!!! I have been sitting on this word and felt to release it today. There has been a great assault against many of the forerunners and frontline leaders in the body of Christ of late. This word came out of an encounter I had with the Lord. Forerunners and frontline leaders, do not give up!!!!! "You are but steps away from breakthrough". I honour you forerunners and frontline leaders for your standing and fighting!
Blessings, Lana Vawser
Along with this encouraging word, the Lord led me to a word from Oswald Chambers this morning:
"...the more weak and feeble you are, the better. The person who is still relying and trusting in anything within himself is the last person to even come close to saying, 'I will serve the Lord.'"
Remember that WyHoP is currently open on Mondays, 12noon-2pm and 6-8pm and Fridays, 6-8pm. Let us know if you would be willing to open the room at other times for prayer. And if you have keys to the room, I encourage you to take time individually to use the room and to seek God for our cities, state, nation.
There are several other ways you can participate in prayer with us:
Canopy of Prayer; choose a day in July and August where you will commit to 15 minutes or more of prayer for our city, county, state, nation. I have written a new "Canopy of Prayer" guide that can be viewed here: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=D4DD7599BFA246D1!697&authkey=!AA63XuKi6MYWBg0&ithint=file%2cdocx .
Follow WyHoP on Facebook: I have begun posting daily prayers(M-F) on the WyHoP Facebook page. Currently, we are Praying the Names of God. I encourage you to "like" our page and to join our daily prayer stream as you are able.
DON'T FORGET! Important time to pray together for the ministry of WyHoP, Friday, July 24th; 6pm in the Prayer Room
