Prayer Directives

Thomas Benson, Intercession


Greetings from Spokane!

Early in January this year the Lord spoke to me and said that I needed to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. I took that to mean that things were going to change, but not necessarily to my liking. I sensed this word was not for me alone but for the church at large. Then while in a conference at the end of January, the Lord spoke again and said to me, "You are in the most dangerous season that you have ever been in, but you can be safer than you have ever been." Again I felt that this was not for me alone.

Several weeks later the Lord woke me up every hour on the hour speaking to me, impressing me with an urgency to speak about getting ready for the things that are coming. I have been hesitant to share. I told the Lord that I did not want to alarm people. At that point He spoke very clearly to me, "I want them alarmed, I want them aware, and I want them awake." He then became very adamant, "BUT I DO NOT WANT THEM TO BE AFRAID. "

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that our nation is in trouble, and that for the most part the church is in a state of slumber. So I want to urge everyone to pray for the church that she will arise and that the world will finally see the church that Jesus died for in Matt 16:18.

Pray for the nation that we may turn her back to God and that America will be able to fulfill the destiny that I believe the Lord has for her. Also we need to be praying for Israel and the peace of Jerusalem, Ps.122:6, and our nation's relationship with her, that we will not pressure Israel to do anything that is not God's will.

At the Spokane Healing Rooms we have been praying the first Friday of every month from 7:00pm to 7:00am. Please consider if the Lord would have you do the same.

Blessings to all of you in Jesus' name.
