Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving; (3) meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, (4) that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.Colossians 4:2-4 NKJV
April 18 of 2021, the Spirit of God spoke to me in a service, and I wrote it down:
“If you wait for a request for prayer, that means the situation has gotten bad enough to motivate another to ask for help. If God’s people had been praying as led by the Holy ghost, The situation may have been avoided or aborted at an earlier stage. By the time the prayer request comes in, damage has already been done, and a process is in motion with momentum, and the process will be more difficult and painful – remedial rather than preventive or protective.”
When we get the prayer request, much damage has already been done, a disease process is in motion, and we use our energies and faith to try and reverse it. Today, we learn to pray before the damage is done.
