Prayer Points for Ministry


 

Running with the Father's Heart - 32 Marathons because Every County Counts

 

In the past 10 years of ministry in Ireland, I have always been led to relate scriptures from prophetic books to the event taking place. However, for this prayer project, I sense that I am to take scriptures from the Jewish calendar, that is, those read on Shabbat in Synagogues (the Hebrew scriptures) and in Jewish Messianic congregations (Hebrew and New Testament Scriptures).  Shabbat is from Friday night, sun down, until Saturday, one hour after sun-down. It is no coincidence that every week, this prayer initiatiave of allowing the Father to express His love through us, takes place during these hours and so it is fitting to pray the scriptures read all over the world for the county in which we minister.

Paul and Hilary Kyle who ministered in word and song, as well as running and walking, during the first 3 weeks of our 32 marathon journey around Ireland are returning to complete the final 3 weekends with us. I thank God He is calling them home to Ireland from America at this time and for all that He will do through them. On the final week, in the place I call home (Donegal), I will share the final message on seeing the Father’s heart through the Lord’s Prayer, “Our Father, Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory. Amen!

I, Katey, am not as tired as I was but now I have a cracked rib to deal with. The cracked rib is below my heart and its cracking was due to the excitement of a loving friend picking me up and swinging me around after we had climbed and descended the Stairway to Heaven in County Fermanagh. There was only love in her actions and although I can’t be as physically active as I was, God is still making the weekends a success – this, after all, is a team effort and God will find a way to complete each marathon whether I can cycle a lot or walk a little. It is well.

Please pray for all those ministering. This month, our visiting speaker from America, Jewish believer Abraham Bender, completes his time with us in Roscommon, the first place he ministered in our emerald isle some years ago. The other guest speaker is Adrian Galvin, the Lord bringing him home from Bristol, UK to minister with us for 3 weeks.  The LORD bless them for all that they freely give to the county they minister in, receiving in abundance for their generosity and love. If you want to know more about the speakers or the venues, please look at the Word of the Lord Ministries web page www.thewordofthelord.biz.

Speaker: Abraham Bender 

(American Messianic Jewish missionary to the world)

 

Paul greeted them and told them in detail what God had done among the non-Jews through his ministry. When they heard this, they praised God.

                                                                                      (Acts 21: 19-20a)

Prayer: One of the privileges of travelling this island of Ireland is seeing and sharing what God is doing, not only through my ministry but the ministry of others. This same weekend, a group of churches in Derry have organised a weekend of prayer and praise in and for their city. My heart swells to hear such news (and that out of 32 weekends God would choose this weekend for us to be in the same city). Our timetables do not clash and we are able to join their events as well as our own. Please join me in praising God for all the work He will achieve this weekend through ‘Running with the Father’s Heart for Derry’ and ‘City on a Hill’.

“. . . for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb to the day of his death.”

 (Judges 13:7b)

 

Prayer:  We begin our Saturday events at Drumceatt Hill where St. Columba settled a dispute after returning from Iona in Scotland. I feel this is very significant, inviting a spirit of reconciliation into our hearts and into this county. Yet, no person in the county is less called than St. Columba was. Please pray for believers to recognise their unique call from God in their lives.

(Zechariah 4:6)

 

Prayer: Praise God for His wonders which the Holy Spirit of God performs. Please pray for people in County Tyrone to see the intervention of the Holy Spirit in their lives and their communities, greater than any other might or power. Where there is discouragement, may believers be encouraged. Where there is division, may unity be formed. Where there is brokenness, may Father God touch them with healing.

Friday 7.30 p.m.      Father Heart teaching          Ballyards Castle prayer room, Armagh

                                

SpeakerErnie Gibson (Highlands’ leader, Pray Scotland)

 

 

Worship Leader:  James Bell (International Worship leader and singer/songwriter)

 

 “But the priests, the Levites, the sons of Zadok, who kept charge of My sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from Me, they shall come near Me to minister to Me . . . And they shall teach My people the difference between the holy and the unholy, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.”

                                                                                      (Ezekiel 44: 15; 23)

Prayer: Please pray that tonight’s meeting, all that is said and sung, encourages those who have remained faithful in County Armagh while seeing others around them fall away. May they be filled with hope for the future, that as hearts are revived and minds are renewed in Christ, they will be called to teach and encourage many from the well of salvation within them.

 

Saturday                 Running with the Father’s Heart

‘You also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

 (1 Peter 2:5) 

Prayer: God chose Armagh as a spiritual capital centuries ago over 1500 years ago. It is no coincidence today that traditional churches still have their headquarters for the whole island of Ireland in Armagh. As leaders in the land, how Armagh chooses to live affects the whole island. Christians in and from Armagh rededicating themselves to Christ Jesus in our Father in heaven has an incredible ripple effect on the whole island so it’s vital we pray for their willingness at this time to allow the Spirit of God to build them up to be all God wants them to be. The scroll filled with the Father’s love makes its way from near the city of Armagh to Newry Town Hall, from one seat of authority to another. Please pray for all who claim Jesus as their Lord and Saviour in County Armagh, the Master they follow, to dedicate themselves afresh in this season, that they may be built up, to be holy as He is holy, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, both personal and corporate, directed by and acceptable to God through Jesus Christ, knowing that their decision will impact the whole island.

And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family. 

(Leviticus 25: 10)

Prayer: Father God has chosen that we celebrate the half-way mark of Running with the Father’s Heart in County Down, the start and end place of Patrick’s ministry in Ireland. On previous prayer tours around Ireland, I (Katey) have personally had incredible spiritual encounters in County Down because of the seed sown by Patrick and God’s intent to celebrate it. Please pray for County Down and the whole island of Ireland to enter into God’s jubilee. May those in Christ proclaim liberty to the captives. May multitudes return to their family, both natural and spiritual, in the name of Jesus.

(Ezekiel 32:17)

Prayer: Praise God who made the heavens and the earth and for whom nothing is too difficult! We are running with the Father’s heart in and for County Down, an area brimming with the works and prayers of St. Patrick. Undoubtedly, he sought the Lord on behalf of the county and its inhabitants. Please pray for his prayers to be answered, the fruits of his doings producing a greater harvest, many in this season flocking to the Father through His Son Jesus.

“Come out from among them
And be separate,” says the Lord.
“Do not touch what is unclean
And I will receive you;
I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be My sons and daughters,”
Says the Lord Almighty.”

 (2 Corinthians 6: 17-18) 

Prayer: Please pray for the believers in County Antrim, for them to receive from the Spirit of God a fresh revelation of what it is to be sons and daughters of the Father – to be holy as He is holy, compassionate as He is compassionate, to care as He cares, to forgive as He forgives. May communities be changed by this revelation, more and more Christians from different backgrounds uniting in Christ so that the world may believe that Jesus was sent by the Father (John 17: 21).

When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”  Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

 (Matt 8: 1-4)

PRAYER: I am reminded about a powerful revelation I received back in 2013 as I prayer-walked into Longford. God told me I was about to have the largest, most powerful meeting in my trip around Leinster. This would be the fruit of John Wesley’s prayer and ministry in this area. We, indeed, had an amazing evening! Because of the seeds sown in this land, great multitudes will, once again, follow Jesus. Many people, in their heart of hearts, feel too unclean to come to Jesus. Please pray for them to be willing to come and ask Jesus for cleansing. Then, their lives will never be the same again – washed in the precious blood of Jesus, they will be purified and made holy, complete in Christ Jesus.

Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.” And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.”

(Matthew 8: 5-7)

PRAYER: If a man cared this much for his servant, how much does our Heavenly Father care! Please pray for an increase of healing of those paralysed in County Cavan – in spirit, in mind, in body, in relationship, in finances, in life, that they may live life to the full.

For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,  each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.

(1 Corinthians 3: 11-13)

We meet for the prayer and proclamation over the county under Ossary Bridge, the area of the original Kilkenny (Church of Canice/Kil Chainnigh).
