Fasting and Prayer Week: Friday
Jan 22, 2010
Friday night the prayer service with the youth was a powerful time we opened with prayer asking God to release freedom, love and joy in our hearts and over Victory Worship Center and Elevate Youth Church. We went into a time of worship, then had John, Melinda, and Ramie lead us into a time of blessing the generations, honoring one another being clothed with honor and that God would raise up a generation of young and old to possess the land like Joshua.
Next John and Esther led us into a call to pray for Godly families and marriages, for the Lord to reverse the high trend of divorce and God to anoint marriages and families for God's kingdom. Norma led us in prayers of repentance for abortion that has flooded our nation asking God for mercy. That God would save the babies and speak to mothers and fathers that are abortion minded to be visited by the Lord with His mercy and love and the grace to keep and raise their babies. We prophesy life for the babies and financial provision and the spirit of adoption to sweep through.
Midway through the prayer service we asked God to come with His healing presence. Hector released testimonies of healings that have been happening in the high schools. Hector explained that what happens when a testimony is shared it is to encourage you in your faith, especially if you are needing a healing in your body. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. There was a student with pins in their shoulder and no mobility and strength, Jesus heals her and this is on the high school campuses of Tucson. We did a quick explanation of the gift of the Holy Spirit for words of knowledge as lined out in 1 Corinthians 12:8. Basically a word of knowledge is the receiving of information that you wouldn't otherwise know normally, but the Holy Spirit of God releases revelation to you. Jesus operated in a word of knowledge when he tells the woman at the well in John 4:17-19 that she did not have a husband, but in fact has had five husbands and the man she was with now was not her husband either. So when the Lord gives you a word of knowledge, especially for healing, then this should bolster or increase your faith for you to know that Jesus loves you and wants to heal you. We released some words of knowledge for a right knee, pain in back of the head, left ankle and called people to come receive prayer for healing.
As the people responded, Matt saw a woman that needed prayer for healing and felt impressed of the Lord to have one of the young children help him pray for a young woman named Tina with a knee problem. The young boy and Matt pray for Tina and she is healed of knee discomfort, then they pray for another young woman sensing God wanted to heal her back which gets healed, then the Lord highlights her foot and knee and she is healed, then they pray for the pain in her shoulder on the right side of her body, she weeps as she feels the love of God and is healed. Afterwards the young boy thanks Matt for inviting him to pray as he has never seen God heal anyone on the spot!
Another man got healed of neck, and back pains and testifies of this. Praise God!
Matt and Nicole lead in praying for prodigal sons and daughters to return to God. Q leads us in prayer for schools, high schools, jr. High, elementary, and colleges. During this time the presence of God comes in a strong tangible way as Q prays that God will protect students from making life altering choices that will bring consequences to their life. An exhortation and encouragement is made to tell our loved ones about Jesus.
Lastly, Hector prays for God to release fresh anointing and grace to fast.
