“Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16).
During the 13:00-Hour of Thursday, 3 September 2020, a dear friend, who is full time in ministry, called with an urgent request for carefully hand-picked people to confidentially and prayerfully intercede for Jesus’ Holy Spirit to work through him in ministering to five (5) men on a family farm.
Four (4) sons had to forgive their father of the heinous act of murdering his wife, their mother. When Nelson Mandela became President of South Africa the man had been pardoned and released after six (6) years of jail time. Life was never the same for the family.
The four sons have experienced serious problems of bad fruits from bitterness and un-forgiveness that have permeated into other parts of their lives.
Our mission as a prayer team was to intercede in Jesus’ Name for Holy Spirit to deeply work within all five men to commit to forgiveness with one another. We looked to Jesus’ Holy Spirit to prepare the hearts, minds, bodies, souls, spirits and wills to prompt significant forgiveness. We began praying in faith.
Our friend asked us to pray for the father to ask the sons for forgiveness and the sons to truly forgive. He asked for his, his family’s and the family to whom he would minister’s protection. He asked us to pray for Jesus to speak The Word through him that was necessary for deep healing by way of deliverance.
Our friend asked of The LORD to speak from Father’s Heart to convey The Message to these five broken men. Another minister of faith from the nearby town was present on the farm with them in support. There was concern for resistance and other obstacles or challenges.
We as prayer partners prayed for our friend to be fully anointed by Jesus’ Holy Spirit during his appointment. He had to drive four hours on the N1 away from Pretoria to this farm. He stayed Thursday evening and waited on The LORD for the right appointed time. He kept us informed.
At 10:00-Hour Friday, 4 September he signaled that the meeting would start. We all interceded by faith without sight.
By 11:00-Hour he provided most excellent positive feedback of Jesus’ Holy Spirit deeply healing the five men through forgiveness, love and holding onto each other. He said it was more effortless and smoother than he expected. He was glad. We as a prayer team are very glad.
We as prayer warrior intercessors did not have to be physically in-person. Only our brother in The LORD needed to be present with the other men. Jesus’ Holy Spirit did the rest.
The LORD Is Faithful.
PRAYER: Father GOD, in Jesus’ Name show us Your Glory. Amen.
Blessings in The Most High
