For I See The Hearts Of My Intercessors And I Hear The Earnestness Of Your Prayers

It’s All About Jesus!

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Dec. 10, 2009:

Watch and discern, for I see the hearts of My intercessors and I hear the earnestness of your prayers. I will manifest My gift of faith through you. And, you will know that your prayers are not issuing forth from human faith but a divine faith that requires an answer. I am elevating your focus so that you can see through My eyes and pray according to My will, says the Lord. You will also enter the realm of greater expectation as you move in divine purpose.

1 Corinthians 12:7-11 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills..

One may have been awakened by the alarm at 3:00 AM.  One may have may have hit snooze on one’s cell phone several times.  One may have gotten up and proceeded to the computer.  Upon logging on, one may have looked for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.

One may have been anxious to hear what the Lord had to say.  The messages may be totally Jesus and the warnings and help the Lord gives may come to pass.

One may have been under extreme circumstances for a while.  Yesterday one may have set out to do what one said, “Do nothing.”  One may have handled a few situations through out the day.

One may have had a situation with an individual where hearts and concerns were expressed.  Before walking away, one may have expressed forgiveness and unconditional love.  One may not have had any ill feelings toward the individual and wanted them to know that one may love them.  One may have given several individuals hugs followed by apologies and one’s desire for blessings in their lives.  One and the individuals may be totally free.

One may have tried to share spiritual things with an individual who may have discernment.  The individual may not have wanted to discuss anything.  One thought, “I am alone; I have nobody who I can talk to.”

One remembered the recent messages from the Lord to get the focus off of oneself and to keep one’s eyes on Him.  The enemy was using, self-hatred, self-deprecation, guilt, shame, rejection, fear, and loneliness as a temptation to pull one away from the Him.  One saw that one may have been falling into the trap of the enemy through one’s circumstances and focusing on oneself and not on Jesus.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin and may have been glad.  Things that may be going on in one’s life and the lives of others that may be contrary to the ways of the Lord, one may simply pray for the Lord to change them, to give us new hearts to understand with, ears that hear and eyes that see.

One may intercede for the things that may take place in one’s home.  This is how one may get the victory.  One cannot fight in the flesh, which causes strife and division but fight through prayer with Jesus interceding for us always.

One may have begun one’s special time with Jesus by praise with songs, confessing one’s sins and praying for the sick.  One may have thanked the Lord.  One may be so grateful for the help He has given one.

One may have asked the Lord to lead one to a scripture for oneself or for someone else who may read this message.  One may have been led to Psalm 104.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have left one’s prayer closet a few minutes after 4:30 AM.  One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  One may have been sleepy and had to fight one’s way through.  Thank you Lord Jesus for hearing and answering each prayer according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

I Call You Forth Into Healing, Restoration and Renewal!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Nov. 17, 2009:

Beloved, because of your faithful prayers and strong stand against the wiles of the devil, the pall of oppression is lifting. The light of righteousness is piercing the thick gloom of darkness. I call you forth into healing, restoration, and renewal. It is time for you to emerge from the caves and shadows where you have hidden yourselves, and come into the light of a new day, says the Lord.

Romans 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

One may have awakened at 3:00 am to the sound of the alarm.  One turned it off and re-set it for 3:20 AM.

At the sound of the second alarm, one got up and one logged onto one’s  computer to check for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One read it twice, grabbed some items and headed off to one’s prayer closet.  One may have decided yesterday, to start bringing in one’s computer chair, daily logbook with a pen, and Bible.  The chair may provide much more comfort than the toilet seat lid cover.  One may wonder if the chair has been helpful in getting into the Lord’s presence.  One had not had this type of success until yesterday.  “Lord Jesus, what is the determining factor, in Jesus’ name, I pray, amen?”

One may have begun to  clean a few minutes before one’s start time.  At 3:30 AM, one began to sing.  After praising the Lord with song, one confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord.  This may have taken one to around 4:15 AM.

One may have grabbed one’s Bible and prayed for the Lord to lead one to the scripture that He wanted one to see.  One may have opened the Bible up to Psalms 91 and been pleased with this passage.  Even if the passage is not a passage one would have chosen for oneself, one has to trust that Jesus is trying to reveal something to one, which may include one’s attitude.

After reading the passage, one may have begun to press into Jesus to get into His presence.  One may have had many thoughts.  One thought about how much time did one have left.  There was no itches that needed to be scratched which may have been unusual, just rambling thoughts.

The thoughts ceased suddenly and one knew one was there.  All of a sudden the alarm began to beep.  One thought, “Oh No!”  One did not want to wait until tomorrow to try again.  One began to pray to the Lord to allow one to stay and to pray for the outstanding prayer requests later.

So one stayed, thinking that because one had asked, the request had been granted by the Lord.  One closed one’s eyes again.  One heard sounds coming from the next room.  Not long after that one heard someone fidgeting with the washer and dryer.  Then came a knock at the door, the individual wanted the toothpaste.  One’s dog came rushing in, he needed to go outside and made it clear to one that he needed to go right then!

One gave up.  One let the dog out for a few minutes.  One then logged onto one’s computer and onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.

One may believe that one’s worship time may increase from 3:00 AM – 4:30 AM and may include weekends.  One may have thought this recently, but was reluctant to change.  One may be so tired sometimes.  Lord Jesus please give one strength, in Jesus’ name.
