You are invited to JOIN OUR FIRST FRIDAY PRAYER Zoom Gathering, Friday, MAY 1, at Noon EST. One of our Women in the Window partners, Ameera* from North Africa, who is currently living and serving Christ in Europe will speak from her heart about COVID-19 as it wages war against the peoples of Europe and North Africa.
It is increasingly clear that God has invited us to seek Him in the place of prayer, even weeping and prayer, between the porch and the altar! (see Joel 2:17) It is here that the work of intercessory prayer takes place. But this work, or labor of love, is not in vain. It holds the promise of great results as our God intently listens for the cries of His children.
- Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning!
- Those who go forth weeping, bearing precious seed, will indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing the sheaves (of harvest) with them! (Psalm 126:5-6)
God’s clarion call to pray, is clear and compelling. He urges us to weep between the porch and the altar where mankind has set up false gods and turned away from the One True God. Just look at the similarities between the COVID-19 situation and Jeremiah 9:12-23:
- Death has come up through our windows (the infection of nearly 3 million and 200,000+ deaths)
- Children are cut off from the streets (education, sports and traveling to and fro)
- Young men and women are removed from the town squares (of commerce)
God is asking us as His daughters, who have received the fullness of His love, His hope and His healing to join our hearts together and cry out in prayer—shed tears and let our eyelids flow with water! “Now, O women, hear the word of the LORD; open your ears to the words of His mouth. Teach your daughters how to weep…” Jeremiah 9:20a
This is an hour like none other, ladies. There has never been such a time in history, and there may never be another time as fraught with difficulty AND burgeoning with opportunity! Will you be one of the women God is calling to pray for the nations, including your own? And to pray for families, including yours?
I hope we will see you next Friday!
Your partner in prayer, Kim
