Act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God (Mic. 6:8).
God has two dwellings; one in heaven, the other in a meek and thankful heart.

Intercessor, the Story of Rees Howells

Devotional 1

A friend sent me this a week ago, and I hesitated watching it, as it looked boring. How wrong I was! It showed me how complacent I had become in the area of intercessory prayer for others and different situations. Granted, the video is a bit slow moving, but by the end of the video, it had made me want to pray more, which is so needed!

Some of the takeaways:

  • It brought back such sweet memories of crying out go God on our faces in desperate prayer, and the Peace I always felt in my heart afterwards
  • Prayer can change the course of history. If you don't have time to see the whole video, check out the testimonies of Dunkirk at 10:30, of the Battle for Salerno at 23:23 and the incredibel story of the Battle for Britain at 30:00
  • Good interview with an Australian missionary to Cambodia at 46:45

It certainly shined a light on my heart and showed me that Intercessory Prayer is really a weak area in my life!

    Thanks, Jon. Good video, especially parts of the last 30-40 minutes like you said. It sure made me want to pray more too. When I think of what vast wonderful realms of the Spirit (in prayer, hearing from God, and much more) are out there and are open to anyone, it makes me want to be more faithful in my spiritual life. We're never too old. Like one speaker said, "In the kingdom of God, whatever age you are, the best is yet to come."
