The Bag of Hot Water

Extract from our Weekly Bulletin

October 23, 2016

“Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.” Isaiah 65:24.

I raised them. Later there were straps for the leprous patients, and the children showed a brief sign of boredom.

Then a box of mixed sultanas, which had sultanas from Esmirna – some of these would be for the bread of the weekend.

Then, when I put my hands again, I thought, “Am I feeling what I think I am?” I grabbed and pulled it out, “a new bag for warm water.” I cried.

I hadn’t asked God to send it myself, because I did not believe that He could do it.

Ruth was at the front of the line that the children had formed. She rushed forward, affirming, “If God sent to us the bag, then he should’ve sent us the doll as well!” Reaching to the bottom of the box, she pulled out a small doll dressed beautifully.

Her eyes shone! She never doubted! Looking towards me, she asked “Can I go with you and give this doll to the girl, so that she knows that Jesus truly loves her?”

The package had been on its way for Packed by my old pupils from Sunday school, whose leader had listened and obeyed God, pressing him to send a bag for warm water, although it was going to the geographical equator.

And one of the girls had put in a doll for an African girl five months earlier, in response to the prayer of the ten-year old who believed and asked to bring it “this evening.”

“Before they call I will answer” (Isaiah 65:24).

This amazing prayer takes less than one minute. When you receive this, it is everything that you have to do. There are no ties.

Just send this to whomever you want – but send it.

Praying is one of the best gifts that we receive. It has no cost and brings many rewards.

Let’s keep on praying one for another; Father, I ask you to bless my friends who are reading this right now.

I ask that You minister to their spirits at this precise moment.

Where there is pain, give them Your Peace and Love. Where there is doubt, release a renewed trust that works within them.

Where there is weariness or they are exhausted, I ask you to give them understanding, guide, and strength so that they learn the submission to Your leadership.

Where there is spiritual stagnation, I ask you to renew them revealing your closeness, and planting in them a greater intimacy towards You.

Where there is fear, reveal Your love, and liberate Your courage towards them.

Where there is sin, reveal all to them, and break his tie on the life of my friends.

Bless their finances, give them a greater vision, and raise leaders and friends who support them and give them courage.

I ask you for these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Share this message with any person that you consider to be a friend, it will bring blessings for both of you.

Share this message with any person that you do not consider being a friend; it is something that Christ would do.

Do not ask the Lord to guide your steps if you do not have intentions of moving your feet.

May God bless you over and over again, seventy times seven in Jesus’ of Nazareth Name.
