Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created and you will renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations. Through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen
This prayer is written on my heart and today I experienced it in surrounding me in the hearts of a church of faithful (man 😉 ) and women.
Today was a gift of the Holy Spirit and I am grateful!!
I went to Cornerstone TV to tape the Real Life interviews (which will be aired next week Wednesday!) and left there with an entire day for the Lord to be creative in Pittsburgh! And boy was it a surprise blessing!
When I got off the plane the night before I was met by a gentle giant named Damon. He worked for Cornerstone and was my ride to the hotel. Immediately we made what I’d call a ‘Holy Spirit’ connection. For the 40 minute ride we were sharing our testimonies and his encouragement in God’s Word was exactly what I needed to ease the nerves and to prepare to do what God was calling me into the next day.
Damon showed up for the interview to intercede in prayer for me. Knowing he was praying on the sidelines as the interview took place was a blessed comfort. When we were finished he was to take me to lunch and to the hotel. After lunch he tentatively asked if I’d be interested in attending prayer meeting with him at his church that day.
How could I resist a few hours of prayer? 😀
I walked into the sanctuary and was immediately welcomed and with a little introduction of who I am and what I was in Pittsburgh for, we went straight into intercessory prayer.
Time flew. We were worshiping and before I knew it the pastor was introducing me again to the prayer warriors that had entered in later. She said she felt a stirring of the spirit to bless the ministry, that this small congregation who is in need of their own tithe wanted to give Hopeful Hearts Ministry an offering!
One of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is Awe & Wonder and they succeeded. I was in awe of their obedience and generosity. Tears flowed and then they laid hands over me and gave me an anointing of prayer with an extra gift – a prophesy.
This I will hold dear to my heart… I trust in You, Lord. I trust in You.
I came to Pittsburgh to be a vessel for the Lord and in return I received an abundance of His anointing love and blessings because I said ‘yes’ to pray.
Amen amen amen!!!
