Persevering intercessors

Our Father in heaven,
Simeon was a devout man, waiting for the Consolation of Israel. Anna fasted and prayed in the temple for 84 years. You blessed them to see the Messiah before they died. Was it their prayers that ushered in the birth of Jesus?
Jesus taught us to pray “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” We yearn to have the tears wiped from our eyes. We yearn to have no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying, nor pain. We thirst for the water of life and wish for the precious gifts of the tree of life. We know that these things exist in heaven, Lord, but we cry out for them on earth.
Stir intercessors to bring Your kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. Teach them to pray. Teach them to persevere, even for 84 years.
The people who know You shall be strong and carry out great exploits. At the commencement of these 40 day fasts to end abortion, to preserve marriage, to protect religious freedom, we cry out for great exploits in the body of Christ–great exploits for our nation.
As Your daughter, my personal request is for great exploits in the healing of neurological disease, especially autism spectrum disorders and Friedreich’s ataxia. Great exploits for Chris, Lauren, Sally, and Joseph. Great exploits, Lord. Great exploits. Amen.
Luke 2, Revelation 21,22, Daniel 11:32

  1. Psalm 88 came up at Morning Prayer today – that great struggle to keep seeking God’s presence and blessing when darkness seems to be our only companion. Long seasons of prayer and waiting while loved ones seem ever more held in disease. May God send angels to those who pray in this way, as the angels ministered to Jesus in the wilderness and strengthened him for his passion in Gesthemane.
