We were told that we should enlist friends and family to pray for us in a regular way. The longer we do this, the more we see the importance of this team of supporters. Knowing that over 100 people are regularly asking for God to bless us has given us enormous confidence.
Especially when we occasionally hear from them. “We’ve been praying for you.” Or “We enjoy reading your monthly newsletter.”
I think the power of those statements comes from the fact that they are a connection. A completed circuit. Two people entering into a communication with God about life and ministry.
Current travels from the request to the intercessor to God and returns in personal encouragement and God’s answer. There is no more powerful way to encourage another person.
