My friends, I am praying for someone right now that I love dearly. I have been praying for her for years but especially during these last few months. Others have sensed  the urgency to pray for her as well and have joined forces with me. As we began, the Lord gave me this scripture: 1 Samuel. 16:7
” The Lord sees not as man sees; man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”

Jesus spoke to my heart as we began this prayer assault on the enemy’s stronghold of this dear woman’s life, that I was not to look at what I would see; that things would appear disastrous and  that I would be tempted to despair. He assured me that He would be working to capture and heal her heart. I was not to be distracted by what I saw, but to keep praying, not in “my own understanding”, but to search the scriptures for His leading as to how to pray.

 I wonder if you too are praying for someone and it appears that your prayers are not  being answered and the situation is getting worse. That is how it is looking to me today. But I will be encouraged,  and I want to encourage you as well. For often, perhaps most often, God is working at a heart level, and what we can see does not represent His hearing us nor does it represent His responding to our prayers. He hears and He is moving. 

“Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Gal. 6:9

Father, comfort and steady my heart; comfort and steady the hearts of my friends, and by Your Spirit remind us of Your faithfulness, power and love in these situations that we are bringing to Your  hands today. In Jesus name and with confidence I pray, Amen. 




Galatians 6:9
