Let’s be Honest, About the Issue of Praying!


I must share an issue that will touch you either way as a blessing or it will set things straight in your life!

For many years now I felt the Spirit moving inside of me, when I was reading: “I PRAY FOR ALL OF YOU IN MY DAILY PRAYERS!”  Some of who wrote this have 5000 friends and 7, 324 followers…  I almost felt ashamed when I read it.  Cause it is not true it is impossible to pray for so many people daily !

As Teshuva Ministries we receive many Prayer Requests, from Facebook and from Google; some I do not even know, they just send a request via my websites.  When I received a good testimony last week from some one, I felt the urge to mail this person and tell him in all honesty that I had not been praying for this person!  I told him, we intercede every tuesday, and to make sure that all Prayer Requests will come under the attention of the Lord, we always say in the end: “Father we present to you all the requests we lay them down for Your feet and we ask of you that you will keep them safe, bring them on the narrow path, cover them with Your blood, and bring them home into Your Fatherheart!”

Today I received an answer from the person to whom I had mailed in all honesty.  He told me that the Lord is not pleased when we do not pray for every person (one at the time) and he told me he prayed for all the hundreds of requests he received every day!

After prayer today, the Lord wanted me to share this with all of you, because we need to learn we can do nothing without HIM!  Some claim they pray 40 hours per day,they are fasting for months, they are going into heaven 7 times per week…..  They are so powerful, so great so mighty in their own sight…. I know that when Yeshua said that He has come for the sick, that I am one of them!  I am NOTHING without HIM…  My flesh must be dead!  So he can work through me!

He gave me a vision during prayertime: I was sitting at His lap and I could see how He walked and ministered through my body…  sometimes things where so great and exciting, and then I turned arround so I could see His face telling Him how marvelous it all was!  And how glad I felt!

TODAY THE SPIRIT OF THE G-D OF ISRAEL IS TELLING US:  you feel small and you realize you can not do it!  And this is MY answer says the Lord: “YES I CAN and yes I Am will do it through you!  And those who think highly of themselves will be disappointed at the end!”

2 Corinthians 10:8-18   “For even if I boast somewhat freely about the authority the Lord gave us for building you up rather than pulling you down, I will not be ashamed of it.
9 I do not want to seem to be trying to frighten you with my letters.
10 For some say, “His letters are weighty and forceful, but in person he is unimpressive and his speaking amounts to nothing.”
11 Such people should realize that what we are in our letters when we are absent, we will be in our actions when we are present.
12 We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.
13 We, however, will not boast beyond proper limits, but will confine our boasting to the field God has assigned to us, a field that reaches even to you.
14 We are not going too far in our boasting, as would be the case if we had not come to you, for we did get as far as you with the gospel of Christ.
15 Neither do we go beyond our limits by boasting of work done by others.  Our hope is that, as your faith continues to grow, our area of activity among you will greatly expand, 16 so that we can preach the gospel in the regions beyond you.  For we do not want to boast about work already done in another man’s territory.
17 But, “Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.”
18 For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends  (Jewish Complete).


Blessings and Shalom over you!
