Trail Of Tears

Great things happen when Zion travails

with weeping and moaning and wails

when our spirits are humble

those walls start to crumble

the Spirit of God, it prevails!

 

I am so excited about how God is beginning to use our young people to intercede for lost souls! Sunday night was an awesome service in church, and I believe, the start of something really great. A heavy spirit of prayer and intercession came upon the church. There was weeping and groaning and travailing. Our evangelist, Bro. Trevino, spoke briefly about intercession, and then there was more praying. Bro. Trevino gave a challenge to the young people to take up the burden of intercessory prayer, and they took it to heart. Those young people were weeping, talking in tongues, groaning and some even had snot running down their face, but they didn’t care. They were getting a hold of God. After service the young people talked and decided that they wanted to fast and get together Monday evening and pray. I was there for the prayer meeting, and it was just as powerful as Sunday night. They prayed for an hour and a half, which is especially long when you haven’t eaten all day. I am believing that we are going to see

new souls receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues

physical healings

financial miracles

revival and renewal among the saints of God

 

Great things happen when we earnestly, fervently pray!

When was the last time you wept for a soul

As tears from your eyes did freely flow

With agony over one’s lost condition

Of eternity without God, perdition?

 

If to win one to God is your noble goal

When was the last time you wept for a soul?

Before this great gospel we can share

We must take some time to wrestle in prayer.

 

Have you witnessed, it seems, to no avail?

Perhaps you’re lacking this thing called travail.

When was the last time you wept for a soul

With heart wrenching sobs you could scarcely control?

 

Ever take time to wonder why

Your spirit just seems so lifeless and dry?

Over this question, you may want to mull.

“When was the last time you wept for a soul?”

Psalm 126:5  Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!

126:6  He who goes out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

 

 

James 4:9  Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.

4:10  Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.

 

2Chronicles 7:14  if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

 

Romans 8:26  Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.

 

“Let my heart be broken by the things that break the heart of God.”

  1. Hello. Wow; it’s been a while. I’m trying to return to more normal visits in the old neighborhood. this is something that has been on my heart much over the past few weeks. Too often we neglect the divine call to prayer. To intercede on behalf og the fallen and lost. Jesus gave us the example of the unjust judge who finally responded to the lady who wouldn’t rest until a remedy was forthcoming. I think that too often, we get the idea that if we’re not “doing something” physical we’re not accomplishing anything. May all who read this post give thought to their own prayer life and examine where they are in need of improving. (I’m in need of improving)

    I recently heard a statistic that revealed a troubling thing. The average pastor (not just the average professing christian, but the average pastor) spends an average of three minutes per day in undistracted prayer. It’s very sad indeed. it also explains why we see so much error creeping into the church. Thanks for addressing this very important issue.

    Blessings always in Jesus name.

    Hi Timbob. What a startling statistic you shared! 3 minutes of undistracted prayer a day might be acceptable for a young person that is a new convert and is learning how to pray, but that certainly doesn’t cut it for anyone that has been living for God for a while and especially not for a pastor. God is a miracle working God and able to do great things, but He has linked Himself to our prayers, and if we don’t pray, God will be silent. We need to hear over and over again both preaching and teaching that emphasizes the importance of prayer, and then we need to do it. May God help us all to have that daily time of prayer that will not only help us in our own lives but is absolutely essential to influence others as well. Thanks for stopping by, Timbob.
