PARTNER MINISTRY LETTER



 

Get ready for a time of powerful prayer

and fasting for you — Sunday, May 28!


 


Dear Partner, 

       Over the years I’ve had many people ask me, “How do you get answers to your prayers?”  And I always point them to the powerful principles in God’s Word where He tells us how we can have prayers that produce results.  I know it can be discouraging for us to pray, have faith, and…nothing happens!

       A while back, we received a letter from a Partner, and I could sense the disappointment and frustration because her prayers had not been answered yet.  She did so well in expressing how we can all feel at times.  Her letter started out with, “What is wrong with my prayers or my belief?”  Then she described the physical challenge she’s having right now and how she is wondering why her prayer hasn’t been answered.  Then she said, “Pray that I am not overcome with doubt.  I know God is not the author of confusion, yet I am confused.” 

       Now many of us could have written that letter.  What’s wrong with my prayers?  Doubt is trying to overcome me.  I’m confused.  Why aren’t things working?  We start beating up on ourselves because…well, we must not have enough faith and that’s why our prayers are not working.  We feel we’ve done everything God would want us to do, so now because nothing is happening we’re confused. 

       But God is saying something IS happening when you pray.  Keep watching.  Be alert and intent because every time you pray, something happens.  He is taking you down the path to the answer.  Some disappointing things may happen along the way, but don’t think they are taking you further away.  When you’re facing hard issues, it can seem as though you’re getting further away from your desired destination.  But as hard as that seems, you’re actually making progress through those hard circumstances because your prayers are making a hole in the circumstances.  They are affecting the battle being fought in the spiritual realm.  You’re getting closer and closer to being able to see what the Bible calls the dunamis explosion where suddenly, BAM, you see the great results!  Dunamis is Greek for miraculous power.

       James 5:16 tells us that the earnest, heartfelt, continued prayer of a believer makes tremendous power available.  Think about this: when you pray, the power of God is behind your prayers and that is producing tremendous authority and control.  Your prayer is dynamic in its working.  So as that scripture said, when you have earnest prayer (which means serious and sincere) and you have heartfelt prayer (which means genuine and deep) and you have continual prayer (which means you don’t quit), then BAM, you can see the wonderful answer.  The challenge is met.  The project is complete.  The pain is over.  The reward has come.  And why did it happen?  Because step-by-step, you were steadfast in your prayers and faith.

       The minister George Mueller saw amazing results to his prayers for many years.  Once he said, “I live in the spirit of prayer.  I pray as I walk about, when I lie down and when I rise up.  And the answers are always coming.  Thousands and tens of thousands of times have my prayers been answered.  When once I am persuaded that a thing is right and for the glory of God, I go on praying for it until the answer comes.  George Mueller never gives up!”


Prayer!  It Makes the Impossible Possible!
 

       That’s what Jesus was communicating when He spoke those words to a father who went to Him for helpHe wanted us to get this message.  Mark, chapter 9, describes how a man had a son who was possessed by a spirit.  It caused him to convulse and go into a stupor.  The father said that his boy was wasting away.  Can you imagine how these parents have been, for who knows how long, watching their son be tormented by a spirit that was driving him to do things that were detrimental to himself.  They were watching him waste away. 

       The parents of this boy reached the place they knew he could not go on much more time this way.  Their hearts were breaking, until they heard of Jesus and His disciples and how people were being healed wherever they went.  That’s when they decided the father would take their son to them and plead for his deliverance.  They had tried everything else and now all they could do was pray.  But they were going to find out that that was the most powerful thing they could do. 

       When the father arrived with his son, Jesus was not with the group of disciples who were ministering to the crowd of people, so this father asked the disciples to help his son.  However, when they tried, they were not able to get him delivered.  We don’t know what they did wrong but we do know they had not prayed enough about it or prayed in the right way because that’s what Jesus told them later. 

       When Jesus came down from the mountain where He had been, the father ran up to Him and said that he had brought his son to be healed and described what the evil spirit had been doing to him since he was very young.  Then he added, But if You can do anything, do have pity on us and help us (Mark 9:22).  We can tell from his statement that his faith had been shaken because he took the boy to the disciples thinking this would take care of it.  But when their attempt to deliver the boy failed, it made the father wonder.  So that’s why he worded it that way to Jesus, “If You can do
anything….” 

       So the Lord had to show him that he was using the wrong words in his prayer.  He responded to him by repeating his words, If You can do anything…?  Then He answered that question.  [Why,] all things...(are possible) to him who believes (Mark 9:23)!  He’s telling us that when we approach Him in prayer, if we will have faith that our prayers will produce the power of God, we will see the power of them change the conditions. 

       So the father right away affirmed his faith: I do believe (Mark 9:24)!  Then to make sure that he had the faith he needed in order to see the boy delivered, the father added, Help my weakness of faith!  “Lord, help me make sure I have the faith I need as I pray for You to heal my boy.”  He wanted Jesus to help him get to the place that he believed all things are possible and therefore see his son be delivered.

       So after Jesus heard the heart of the father and saw that he was praying with faith for his son, He rebuked the spirit and charged it to come out of the boy and never enter him again.  The spirit screamed and convulsed the boy to the point that after it was gone, people thought he was dead. 

       The Lord took a grip on the hand of the boy and raised him up.  He was restored to his father whole and well.  Now, this puzzled the disciples who had tried to deliver the boy before Jesus arrived.  So when they asked Him why it didn’t work for them, Jesus said, This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer and fasting (Mark 9:29). 

Now, John and I Are Led by God
To Have a Prayer and Fasting Time for You.

       We’re going to pray and fast to drive out those circumstances that are holding back the answer and blessing and miracle you need.  So it’s important that you send your prayer sheet to us right away.  Tell us what you want to come out of your life and stop causing you problems.  We believe that your desire will be released and no longer held back.  Our prayers can make a hole through stubborn needs so that you can see the power of God move in your behalf.  It will be a very forceful time—just as God’s Word says: our prayer and fasting will be earnest, heartfelt, and continual. 

       We’re going to throw some dunamis prayer power at your circumstances. 

       This is going to happen on Sunday, May 28.  So you don’t have much time to get your prayer request to us.  What do you want out of your life?  Pain?  Debt?  The torment of a bad relationship or problems or challenges in your work?  Are you tired of a stubborn need or health issues?  Something just keeps recurring to bother you?  Maybe you haven’t been able to see any progress toward a desire that will fulfill your life in a wonderful way.  This is the time to do something about it!

       And here’s another thing you can do that is very important.  You can enhance and increase the power of your prayers by asking for our Prayer Guide Kit that we have put together for you.  It is filled with a guide to some of the principles from God’s Word to live by in order to have effective prayers.  Included in the kit are also two of our teachings: Prayers That Produce Power! and The Name of Jesus Is for You!  Oh my…can you imagine the kind of effective prayers you can start having once you…

       Pray according to the prayer guide, and

       Hear these two teachings that are filled with God’s Word to show how to get results from your prayers!

       So if you really want to see something happen, take action today.  Let me ask you just as Jesus asked the lame man by the pool of Bethesda, “Are you in earnest of getting your answer?”  If so, then rush your prayer request to us and get ready to join your faith with ours on Sunday, May 28.  That’s Memorial Day weekend.

       And when you send your prayer request, be sure to request the PRAYER GUIDE KIT—it comes with the small guide and the two CD teachings on prayer.  (You can click here now to request the kit.)

       Now, remember that faith and works are to be joined together in order to produce results (James 2).  So as you have faith for God to answer prayer, put some action to it by giving into His work.  You have been given a promise by Him that as you release into His ministry the funds that He’s given you, He will be faithful to do a wonderful work in many people’s lives.  And He will also do a wonderful work for you (Phil. 4, II Cor. 9). 

       John and I can tell you from personal experience, we see the greatest results in our lives when we plant a seed toward our need.  That shows obedience to God and total dependence on Him.  It stirs His heart and activates His hand.  So if you want to stir the heart of God toward you and activate His hand in your behalf, plant a seed of prayers and finances into this ministry today.  And know that John and I join you with our personal giving also.  You are helping to keep Word of Power teachings going out there and for this ministry to continue reaching out to people through all we do.
                                                                 

                                                                 Your Partners in Prayer,

                                                                 Jeanne and John Alcott

                               Blood Pressure and Blood Sugar Levels Improve!

          “Last week, I asked prayer for my blood pressure and my blood sugar levels.  I went to the doctor and my blood pressure was the best it has been in over five years.  My blood sugar test also showed it went down.  Thank You, Jesus.  Thank you for praying for me!  My prayer for you is more doors of even greater influence to open to you worldwide.”

 

                              It Feels Wonderful To Be a Homeowner!

       “I have had a sudden breakthrough!  I have been seeding towards the ownership of a house.  I am now being offered the opportunity of owning a home.  At first it didn’t look like it was going to manifest.  It looked like everything had been lost.  However, I have continued to sow [my seed] and believing God for a miracle.  Amazingly, [now] there is plenty of money for me to be able to purchase the home.  I cannot help but give much credit to the ministries that have prayed this through.  It feels wonderful to be a homeowner!  I could never thank God enough!”
