Last week I received a gift from Ecuador. It was a pair of beautiful colorful wooden earrings. As I dressed for a luncheon, I realized they were a perfect match for the jacket that I would wear. I put the earrings in and moved my hair back so that they would gracefully swing. As I looked at them in the mirror, I felt led to pray for this tiny nation of Ecuador. As a point of contact I touched the earrings and said "Father, give them ears to hear what You are saying". That has been my cry for them each time I wear the earrings.
Let the Spirit of God reveal to you fresh new ways to pray for the nations. Will you please take a moment to pray for the nation listed today?
Here is one way to be reminded to pray for the nations. On my last shopping trip I bought...
Kiwi fruit from New Zealand, tomatoes from Canada, avocados from Mexico and bananas from Costa Rica and Honduras. As I wash, peel, and eat these foods, I ask the Lord of the Harvest to send laborers. I thank Him that He is pouring out of His Spirit upon ALL flesh and that their sons and daughters will prophesy and have dreams and visions. He loves the whole world and desires that none would perish!
What's in your hand? He's listening...
Psalm 144:1 Blessed is the Lord my strength, who teaches my hands to war and my fingers to fight.
No one deserves to hear twice, until everyone gets a chance to hear once.
Oswald J. Smith
Psalm 2:8 Ask of Me and I will give you the nations for Your inheritance and the end of the earth for your possession.
