It’s Thursday! My friend Amanda is fasting with us today! There is only 3 of us now – but where 2 or 3 are gathered – He is there! I am blessed to have 2 others join us in this nationwide day of Storming the Gates of Heaven!
I know I’ve mentioned this before that we are praying and fasting together for prisons all over. You can actually join us and make a commitment to meet with us each Thursday in the Throne Room of God. Go to http://tinyurl.com/STORMINGTHEGATESOFHEAVEN.
I am very excited that Amanda is joining us! She is my singing partner. I have mentioned her before. I love singing with her. Our voices complement each other. She has an amazing voice and I keep telling her that she’s gotta find her place in the ministry. She says she’s always wanted to be a professional singer – and what better place to start than right here!
I’m praying that God gives her courage to take the next step. I want her to lead more of the worship. She has grown in her faith so much in the last few months and I see her desire to grow more. I love watching babes in Christ hunger for a deeper relationship with Him. And she is really focusing on Him! It’s great!
This morning we met at 6am to kick of our day with a Bible study. I had prayed last night about what to read this morning, and I went to bed disappointed cause I didn’t come up with anything. But this morning I woke up with Colossians on my mind. And I knew exactly what He wanted us to read. Colossians 1:9 -13 :
“For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that you might be filled with the knowledge of His Will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the Knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His Glorious Power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; giving thanks unto the Father, which has made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the Saints in Light. Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of His Dear Son.”
I thought this was perfect because she is desiring more knowledge and wisdom and He is strengthening her to bear more fruit for His Kingdom!
Pray for Amanda! My sweet friend who is taking the next step into a deeper relationship by fasting with us today!
