Praying for the Lost

I went visiting and praying with our friend/pastor at the church on the rock this past Thursday. His wife went with us too. We spent this day praying with the sick and for the lost. We are called to pray for the sick and see God's healing power revealed through prayer. The 90 year old man that was so sick that he couldn't get out of bed was dressed and sitting up eating when we went back to visit him. He was not coughing and had no problem with his sinuses. Wow! He was a totally different man. And another woman we visited had been struggling with depression and fatigue and through prayer and revelation was able to find out the problem and begin treatments to recover, Lord willing. And there were others that were sick that we went and prayed for, and we fully trust God to do His work there and love on them as well. But one thing that still confuses me is how easily we are deceived and blinded by the enemy. Everyone seems to understand that when there is sickness and suffering that you go to the Lord and ask for healing and restoration...but when it comes to surrendering and dying to yourself and LIVING in Christ...no one seems to understand that sickness and healing that is available to all. And the Necessity of it!! WOW! So much more than any earthly sickness or pain! And all I heard from the people that day was..."Maybe at another opportunity" or "I'm waiting for the Lord to convict me because it is from God and not from man so I won't let any man persuade me." I just want to pick them up and slap them around and make them understand and see!! But I don't reckon that would help any, huh? But to see how tender but yet strong Carlos and Mari are with these people really was encouraging and amazing. We simply spoke truth out of love and prayed for them before we left. We are called to go and obey in making disciples and teaching them to obey...the decision to do it is between them and God. We are called, really, to do the simple things and God is in charge of doing the hard and difficult things. I have to remind myself to pray and allow God to speak because He is a much better speaker and lover than I am. And also to trust God and keep praying for these people not just in Salfate but all over the world! So join me in interceding for the lost in the world so they can come to fully understand God's mercy and love that can bring them to repentance and salvation! Let us love them in this action and see God's power revealed in their lives! God is good and so faithful!!!
