The hot wind coming from the Indian Ocean blew sand across the tent of meeting, stinging our faces. But along with the clouds of sand, there were spiritual clouds of glory that day as worshippers from around the world exalted Jesus as King. As the Holy Spirit began to give prophetic insight into how to pray for several different countries, the presence of God became thick and people began to intercede for their nations. In the midst of this, my husband looked toward the makeshift platform and saw Jesus standing high above the tent. His form stretched up into the sky and He was clothed in priestly garments. The light coming from Him was so bright that little could be seen of His face. Small orbs of light were spinning around Him, now touching, now lifting off of His glory. As intercession was made, the orbs of light were sent speeding out to the earth to all the countries and people who were being prayed for. Help and hope were on the way.
Don’t ever think that your situation is hopeless. Don’t ever think that God does not hear or that He does not care. Whether your problems are large or small, whether they concern just you or your whole nation, He hears every voice crying out to Him and sees every tear. In fact, your tears are so precious to Him that He keeps them in a bottle of remembrance! (Psa.56:8) Even your whisper for help resounds in His ears like a baby crying for its mother. He will not forget you and He will not forsake you. (Heb.13:5)
Once in an encounter with the Lord when I was feeling distraught and hopeless, He opened His hand to me. There, tattooed on His palm, was my name! I was shocked and undone. But without a word He had assured me of His great love for me and the fact that He would never forget. ( Isa.49:15,16)
Never give up. Keep praying! (1 Thess.5:17, Isa.62:6,7, Ps. 55:17, Lev. 6:13)
