Praying for People to Return to the Lord (Joel 2:12-14)

I thought you’d like to see what I’ve been up to—in video!

We recently joined together to worship Jesus and pray for our nation at The Fig Tree, a prayer room where I serve.

I sang in prayer from the Word of God from Joel 2:12-14 (NKJV):

“Now, therefore,” says the Lord,
“Turn to Me with all your heart,
With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.”
So rend your heart, and not your garments;
Return to the Lord your God,
For He is gracious and merciful,
Slow to anger, and of great kindness;
And He relents from doing harm.
Who knows if He will turn and relent,
And leave a blessing behind Him—
A grain offering and a drink offering
For the Lord your God?

Join us in praying for all to return their hearts and lives to the Lord. He so longs for each one!

Meditating on the Truth of God’s Heart for Us

During my house of prayer internship, our assignments included meditating on specific passages from God’s Word. I thought I would share some of my gleanings from one of these, to give you a look into the process and benefit of meditation on the Word.

“O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, In the secret places of the cliff,
Let me see your face, Let me hear your voice;
For your voice is sweet, And your face is lovely.”
(Song of Songs 2:14)

This passage from Song of Songs reminds me of the first time I realized the depth of God’s love for us and His desire for intimate relationship with each of us.

Regardless of the kind of day we’re having or how we feel, He wants to spend time with us. He wants us to freely voice our feelings to Him and desires to minister to us wherever we are in every moment.

Prayer of Consecration

As I continue my three-month house of prayer internship, I have been reading some from John G. Lake and thought I would share. His “Prayer of Consecration” is at the end of this post.

So there arises in the heart the desire and prayer for the Spirit of God to eject, crucify, and destroy every tendency of opposition to the Holy Spirit. Think not that thou shall attain the highest in God until within thine own soul a heavenly longing to be like Him who gave His life for us possesses thine heart.

Think not to come within the court of God with stain upon thine garments.  Think not that heaven can smile upon a nature fowled through evil contact.  Think not that Christ can dwell within temples seared by flames of hate.  No! The heart of man must first be purged by holy fire and washed from every stain by cleansing blood. Know ye not that he whose nature is akin to God’s must ever feel the purging power of Christ within?”

Growing in Intercessory Prayer

During our internship we have been learning about intercession, a type of prayer that is focused on praying for others, situations and issues. I finally saw clearly how God’s government truly works through asking in prayer for Him to do His will and for His Kingdom to come in the earth as it is in Heaven. I see the tremendous value of prayer more than ever before, especially in praying God’s heart versus our own agendas.

In prayer we are partnering with Jesus Christ—the ultimate Intercessor and High Priest. Our intercession is to remain rooted in the place of intimacy with Him and co-partnership as ambassadors of reconciliation.
