We adjusted our Prayer Watch time from 12:00nn to 6:00pm to 6:00am to 12:00nn. All for the purpose of a mission: to go to Pampanga and have my Parent-in-Law accept the Lord.
We are just hoping for the best. We do not know how it will be.
So we traveled on the same day to Pampanga. Late afternoon, we arrived. Dinner. After dinner, we’re ready for bed – but we do intend to praise and worship the Lord and pray. My wife invited her parents if they wish to join – at least listen. They did!
By God’s grace, after a few song – I started to pray. God’s wisdom is indeed way too awesome compared to ours. No mind can conceive what He has prepared.
I was lead by the Holy Spirit into prayer – a prayer preaching. Asking the Lord to remind us of all the good things He has done for us. Since, we are singing that He is good, that every good and perfect gift comes from the Father. We just started thanking Him for all the good things He has done for us, and every great gift we received. Even our life! our breath! Then I mentioned about His love for us – in prayer. How He loved us and where is it written in the Bible. How we need a Savior – since we cannot save ourselves and that Jesus is the Savior, the only Name given to whom salvation may be found and that all authority in heaven and in earth was given to Him, that He is the only way to the Father, the truth and the Life. That in His presence, there is freedom – from sickness, from worries, from weakness. That in Him, if we believe, we will have eternal life.
Then, I invited them to accept the Lord. They just obliged. I asked twice if they are willing. They followed the prayer and all glory and honor to God! They received and accepted the Lord!
It was an open heaven!
Right after they received, I prayed for Healing! For Peace, and Joy in their hearts!
I then followed the instructions of the Holy Spirit. I anointed them to receive the following:
- Eternal Life
- Renewed Strength
Then, I started talking about how to pray and taught them. We also prayed for the desires of their heart. Among which are as follows:
- For love to bind the entire family, from their Children down to the Grandchildren
- For the students in the whole family to finish study and graduate
- For a prosperous life of their Children down to the grandchildren
- For their long life
My wife Cora showed them too, what to read in the Psalms. But we trust the Lord for their teachings. I already mentioned to them the Life in Christ teaching. It will happen soon…
God worked and moved mightily! We prayed for this! We do not know exactly how it will happen but it did! The power of an earnest prayer of the righteous! James 5:16
Worth mentioning too, before this day, is the acceptance too of Lola Siony! She’s already 92, and she believed and accepted the Lord – by witnessing a praise and worship done by the CLSF Paco, House of Prayer, in our Friday Night Shabbat!
All glory to Him who enables!
