Your Prayers Are Changing the World

September 25, 2013

Prayer does make a difference – a life-changing, mind-blowing, earth-rattling difference. We don’t need to know how. We don’t need to know when. We just need to kneel confidently and know the tremors of a simple Jesus girl’s prayers extend far wide and far high and far deep.

Look at how our prayers the past couple of days are changing the world. I got this text message from Christine Caine last night – amazing!

A21/P31 - 31 Days of Prayer

We’ve created a 31 Days of Prayer PDF which you can print off straight from this post. Click here to view/print the daily prayers. If you are praying with us, leave a comment below.

Together we are changing the world!

    Hi Lysa, It was sooo nice to meet you at Women of Faith in Dallas this past weekend. What a blessing you are to so many! It was my first time to attend and I’ve already purchased my ticket for next year. I accepted your challenge to pray the 31 days of prayer for A21 and have to say that I am EXPECTING miracles! Please keep sharing them with us!!! I am also committed to pray for Taylor – the daughter of the singer for Gateway. When you get information about her, would you let us know that too?

    SO excited about this. Our youngest daughter is from Ukraine. In the process of adopting her four years ago we learned about the prevalence of trafficking in Eastern Europe. I have continued to work to raise awareness and stir everyday moms to become kitchen table abolitionists. And I love A21. So THANK YOU for highlighting the issue and this organization.

    Praise God! 35 and only 2,999,965 left to FREE and end this atrocity! This is awesome! I’m committed and joining you. Shared this on my MISSION blog and pray others join in.
    Thank you so much for encouraging us to pray for making a difference in ENDING TRAFFICKING NOW with P31 and A21. Love you all and Christine Caine (and her newest book “Undaunted” is great!) I’m sure you are aware of the many organizations working toward this end but I also received a newsletter and praise report from Born2Fly, wotking out of Florida (that has a curriculum for our schools and kids worldwide are using them) In fact, that’s part of the praise report, that Florida will be using this curriculum by Diane Scimone (here’s a link: http://dianascimone.typepad.com/diana_scimone/#axzz2fyWUzG92
    and for her organization which is also her book title
    https://born2fly.org/

    Hope you don’t mind me sharing. I have a long list of other organizations, but her blog has other great praise posts regarding this in USA and worldwide. Project Rescue, Beauty from Ashes Ministry (also in FLA), IJM, FAAST (Faith Alliance Against Slavery and Trafficking), Women At Risk (WAR) and a new one that covers more than trafficking: ActivistFaith (dot) org … Pray for ALL who are combatting against this.

    Love to see results of PRAYER! Thanks Christine and A21 and Lysa!
    Believing God for much more!

    Almighty God our heavenly Father thank you for allowing us to come before your throne to praise and honor you God and to thank you God for not only hearing our prayers but for answering our prayers. Lord Jesus we pray for each person who has fallen victim to human trafficking. Lord Jesus we ask that you place your army of angels around each victim, protect them and fill their hearts and minds with love and peace that only You can provide. Comfort them Lord Jesus and heal their bodies. Sustain them and strengthen them Lord Jesus as You create a means of safe escape for every person. Hear our prayers Oh Lord. Amen.

    God is working overtime on me! I got your email, was intrigued by Chritine’s message Printed out the daily prayer list and following along faithfully.
    Yesterday I was looking at an online calendar for local events and saw that our little, itty, bitty town was having a speaker on human trafficking next Saturday. I went to a local festival today and they were handing out flyers on the same subject for the meeting next week. The group was organized a year ago. I looked at the member list and there are 3 women from the church I used to attend who are on the board of directors for the organization. I haven’t been to church in a long time, but it has been a whisper I’ve been ignoring. Oh Heavenly Father, How Great Thou Art. I don’t think it takes a genius to see the messages He is sending. How blessed I feel. Lysa and Christine, I don’t even know if you will read this, but somehow I hope you know what an impact this project has made on me in so many ways.

    Praise God for answered prayer! I also have a praise report… My cousin, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma has been declared cancer free after 4 treatments! She has to finish 2 more treatments, which the doctors call “extra insurance.” Many of us prayed that God would allow her to keep her hair through the strong chemo, as a testimony of His power, and He has done just that! Please continue to pray for her.

    Please check out my blog, also. http://www.inallhislove.blogspot.com God placed it on my heart to share it with you. I am praying the devotionals on it will help someone. God bless you!

    Lysa, I was so excited to hear an announcement made at my church yesterday morning. I’ve shared the campaign prayers with my church friends and shared the post of each day’s prayer on Facebook. But I’ve not really talked about it much…which is why I was so surprised to hear a frequent visitor to our church, who is a church planter, say that a sort of halfway house was being established for victims of human trafficking right in our state. He was asking for volunteers to consider it a mission trip to do some work on the two-story house that is to be used for the residence. To God be the glory!
