GOD HEARS Prayer Letters
June 2, 2022
Hello faithful GOD HEARS Prayer Letter subscribers,
Pentecost 2022 is almost here! Are you sensing the weightiness of God’s glory about to be released on the earth? Let’s keep our eyes fixed on Him, our spirits alert to perceive what He is doing and our hearts ready to participate in what He opens up to us.
I apologize for not writing to you earlier about the absence of the GHPL in your email inboxes since March 30. I was on assignment in Egypt until mid-April followed by a week of catching up on sleep. Then an avalanche of things happened in my world within a very short time, one of which was buying a new home to share with our kids and selling our home of 41 years. With all the challenges and excitement of experiencing God at work, I find it impossible to prioritize writing the Prayer Letter.
I’m amazed at how God has faithfully encouraged and enabled me to write the GHPL for 16 years, and grateful for how He has gathered intercessors to continue praying for Muslims to be saved and the Church to wake up to this urgent opportunity. I believe that right now He has temporarily* placed me in a different season with a different focus. I’m practicing being in His presence with no purpose other than to be with Him. Also, He is speaking to me in very practical ways about family – His global family and my own extended family. The most profound thing is to be with one another and love one another.
Nevertheless, I was thrilled on Sunday at church when a woman I hadn’t met approached me saying someone had told her I knew a lot about Muslims. She has a new Muslim co-worker and wants to understand and relate to him better. I’ve sent her some resources and am looking forward to sharing over coffee with her soon.
After the crucifixion, the small band of disciples waited together in a locked room not knowing what would happen to them, and Jesus showed up, alive! At Shavuot 120 disciples waited together, not knowing what to expect, and the Holy Spirit was poured out on them in tongues of fire and a rushing wind! We don’t know how the Lord will appear in His power in the coming days, but He will appear, and He will act. Let’s wait on Him together.
Every blessing as you wait on Him,
* Please stay tuned for the GHPL to resume, perhaps in the fall.
