During the WE ARE MESSENGERS concert in Macon, GA a beautiful thing took place. In between sets something caught the eye of Darren Mulligan, the lead singer of We are Messengers. Darren walked over (climbing over seats people were sitting) to hug and pray for a young lady. There was a hush on the crowd and without knowing the details, I started praying for her as well. Minutes later, Darren got on stage and continued singing as if nothing happened.
On the way home, my daughter and I were talking about that moment and were in awe on how the Holy Spirit was in that concert. What was said by Darren to that young lady was to forever be a mystery.
That was until I received a comment on my post from the concert. Turns out the lady’s name is April and this is her story.
I will 150% agree with You! I was at this concert. As a matter of fact he came off stage and prayed for me! He told me I didn’t always have to be strong, that I could let go, that is was in the Lord’s hands! What he didn’t know was I had just lost my dad the previous week. The tickets were given to me just the day before by my office manager because she had something come up. GOD knew I needed to be there! Darren spoke to me with the sweetest Irish accent, and I felt as if Jesus had his arms wrapped around me! This experience was more than you will ever get from church! And I’m proud to have had my daughter and dear friend experience this with me. Later the next day I went Darren a message on Facebook asking why of all the people at this event, Why Me? He said the Holy Spirit pointed me out to him. I will NEVER forget this moment! Watching your video still bring me chills! Cant wait for you to post more!
I have to say this was one of the most awesome thing I have ever witness. I pray April that the moments with Darren gave you the peace and comfort that can only come from Christ. In Jesus Name. Amen. PJSLB
Hi! Please pray with me that N**** will cut down on her drinking. I care for her health. Please pray for Her concerning alcohol even though she isn’t a believer yet please pray God will work behind the scenes and make her stop drinking as much so she get hangovers. Many people in the city I live drink too much. Please pray!
Lord, in the name of Jesus we lift up this young lady and ask that you give her the healing that could only come from you. We pray for the peace that only can come from you. Whatever pain she is masking with the alcohol, we pray that you alleviate that pain. We pray that you show yourself in this girls life so that she may have a personal relationship with you. In Jesus name. Amen. PJSLB
I ALSO INVITE EACH OF YOUR TO LIFT THIS YOUNG GIRL IN PRAYER. Remember you can send prayers requests here or on Twitter @needthespirit
I found this on my phone and to be honest, I don’t know where it’s from. I could of written it, it could of been a lecture at a church, school, or seminar. I do know that it’s message is powerful and is something that can benefit someone out there. God Bless. PJSLB
The Strategic Role of Prayer
“One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. When morning came he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles:”
Where does our strategic direction come from?
Where do we receive counsel for the most important decisions that we make?
Jesus spent the night praying to God. Prayer was two-way communication for Jesus, where the Father provided a relationship in which Jesus could process his decisions and receive counsel.
Are we fully utilizing the potential of prayer to sort through our issues and receive God’s counsel and perspective?
The most important decisions leaders make concern the people with whom they will chose to surround themselves. Prayer is one of the most under-utilized resources God has given us for discernment, decision making and strategic planning.
Lord Jesus, I desire a deeper level of dependency on you through prayer. There are more strategic decisions that need your insight, direction and counsel. Thank you for the Holy Spirit and your invitation to pray.
A reader has asked the following:
“I ask my fellow brothers and sisters I Christ to pray for the selling of our home and for our kids as we transition to a new chapter in our life.” P.V.
Moving into a new home is exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time. Going thru this recently, I know the feeling first hand. Many thoughts enter your mind especially the following; “are you making the right choice?” I will say that PV, the lord will never place you somewhere only to fail and not succeed. You have my prayers and I ask for the readers of needthespirit to pray on PV’s behalf as well. PJSLB
