“God always answers our prayers as long as we leave the matter in his hands.” – Lucky (Baruch) Holloway
Yet you do not have because you do not ask. (James 4:2b)
How will you bless a veteran today?
I am extremely humbled by the grace of God with the prompt responses to yesterday’s prayer request for an Intercessory Team for Your Daily Blessing. After getting my haircut by Rev. Mark Jarvis yesterday morning, I went swimming. As I was walking into the Powell Wellness Center, I saw my dear friend Gene Foret. Gene immediately told me he signed up earlier that morning to be on the Intercessory Team. Gene and I ended up spending about 90 minutes of quality time exercising together and conversing.
When I got home around 1 pm, I discovered 8 people had already signed for the Intercessory Team. I found the following 4 email messages from different people in different parts of the world.
“Thank you. I shall be honored to be on your team. You may find this hard to believe, but this morning as I was driving to work, I felt so forlorn that I was not involved actively in the work of God, but at the same time, I did not give up hope. I cried out to the Lord to please use me in some minuscule manner. And hardly 14 hours later, I am now involved in the most wonderful and marvelous manner. God always answers our prayers as long as we leave the matter in his hands. Praise the Lord.”
“I gladly have signed up to be on your intercessory team. Is it Henry Blackaby that says ‘Find out where God is working, and then join Him’? God is working through you and your ministry. If you’ll hand me a ‘shovel,’ I’ll put on some gloves (and kneepads ;-) ) and join you! To move forward, we must lift up each other in this intercessory way. I would like to do this for you, for Matt, and for Mark Jarvis. I thank & praise God for each of you.”
“Randy I would consider it a privilege to pray for you and your ministry. I are an inspiration to me and I consider you a valuable friend. We are all working on the same mission. To spread the news about our savior, Jesus the Christ. I love you and appreciate your ministry.”
“Yes, Randy, I wish to join in interceding for you per your weekly email guiding us with what to intercede for (plus any additional things the Lord prompts).”
This morning I discovered the YDB Intercessory Team has grown to 12 people. In Biblical numerology, 12 is “THE NUMBER OF GOVERNMENTAL PERFECTION. There were 12 tribes of Israel; 12 Apostles, 12 foundations in the heavenly Jerusalem; 12 gates; 12 pearls; 12 angels. The measurements of New Jerusalem are 12,000 furlongs or stadia, while the wall will be 144 (12 x 12) cubits (Rev. 21:16-17).”
Heavenly Father, thank You for the privilege to be an American. Thank You for all the veterans who died to give me the right to be free. Thank You for my father who faithfully served this great nation for nearly 40 years and modeled integrity to his children. Thank you for the veterans who fought and/or served to protect the freedoms we hold so dear in America. May You bless our veterans and their families. May You bless the USA. Thank You Jesus. Amen.

There is tremendous power in a testimony. “And they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” – Revelations 12:11
