I write you this letter today to ask you for prayer for the MARRIAGE BUILDING EVENT happening Friday and Saturday in the Hampton Roads Area. We know God is prepared to speak, direct, answer, restore, strengthen and comfort those in attendance. We are confident that great things are about to happen. The amount of spiritual resistance we are experiencing clearly indicates that the enemy is upset about the MARRIAGE BUILDING EVENT.
I must clarify: Jon, my husband, is the one enduring spiritual warfare. What does that look like, you ask? The enemy assaults his mind and his sleep. He has been having nightmares and waves of anxiety, all an attempt to derail this ministry! The devil wants our disengagement so he can celebrate a “win” in his camp. But that’s not about to happen! Jon got up this morning after another restless night and declared, “It’s On!”
It’s an amazing experience to close in on this weekend with the same peace that accompanied the vision for the event. I am steadily progressing with the plans, yet Jon is engaged fully in battle. He told me today that as my covering, he naturally is the one to take the heat. Supernaturally, he is winning! There’s no devil bringing this man of God down.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand (Ephesians 6:13).
We’re going into battle to fight for marriages. We’re going to continue to pray and ask that you pray too. We’re going to stand while facing our adversary. His threats will not distract us. Marriage is too great a commodity. It’s the preservation of the family, the means by which the knowledge of God covers the earth. It’s the earthly representation of the heavenly reality of Jesus’ unity with His Bride, the Church, so we stand in the gap to protect it.
Attendees: I’m praying for you with a godly jealously that you would hear God speak to you specifically, in words that undoubtedly prove his careful attention to you and your spouse. He’s crazy about you, so come prepared to receive His increase!
