8 The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
We have waited for this day! You see, a mission group is traveling to the small country of Suriname, which is located on the northeast coast of South America. Even though many of us are not there with them physically, we have committed to pray for them daily.
I was overwhelmed this morning during prayer when God revealed a special vision…He was waiting at the end of the runway. He has always been there! Listen closely, God was waiting for this mission group to arrive in Suriname at the same time He spoke life into the universe! He had them on His mind even then. What a powerful image. The God of creation waiting patiently on you – to arrive!
In the passage above, the Lord himself goes before you and will be with you. As humans, we truly cannot fathom His boundless protection, grace, mercy, will, and breath.
While I wait…I will pray for my friends and this team, and I ask that you do the same. I pray that the Holy Spirit invade their entire beings to where the rivers of God flow swiftly through them onto this land.
While I wait…I will thank God for His promises of going before them and preparing the people of Suriname. May the breath of God Himself fall heavily on this land to where miracles and salvation will ripple for eternity.
While I wait…I will pray that no weapon formed against them shall prosper [Isaiah 54:17]. I pray that God will place a hedge of protection around them. I pray for health and safety as God wraps them in His mighty wing.
While I wait…I will seek the Lord on behalf of this mission group and the people of Suriname. I pray that the Holy Spirit give us all discernment through prayer.
While I wait…I pray that these spiritual warriors stepping onto a foreign land receive the Lord’s blessings through humble hearts. I pray that their families receive protection and peace in the name of Jesus. May the gifts of the Spirit come together and be used to glorify the might King!
While I wait…I pray right now that the entire group will see Jesus waiting for them in this land!
Challenge: While you wait…please commit to pray for this mission team and the people of Suriname.
