Dear Praying Friends: It is incredible to know that we work through a mediator who is alive and mighty to save. When pray we are coming to a living God who is not a mere idol of gold, stone and wood. We come to a extraordinary Lord who hears us, knows us and loves us more dearly than our little minds can begin to perceive. When we come to God there is so much availabe to us to encourage us. That is why it is so important to COME to HIM. Hebrews 12: 22 – 24 NLT tells us that when we approach the Lord in prayer that we “…come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to countless thousands of angels in a joyful gathering. You have come to the assembly of God’s firstborn children, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God himself, who is the judge over all things. You have come to the spirits of the righteous ones in heaven who have now been made perfect. You have come to Jesus, the one who mediates the new covenant between God and people, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks of forgiveness instead of crying out for vengeance like the blood of Abel.” Imagine what would happen if we approached God in prayer as Hebrews 12 says we can. We would face every spiritual battle vicotoriously… before the fight ever begins, we will chant our victory songs. We would never be intimidated because the Lord, along with the hosts of heaven are cheering us on …and even when we fail we will gladly get up because the blood of Christ forgives us and us clean again in order to carry on the battle. There is no stopping the one who is willing to come to God in prayer! So what should we do with such assurance? Hebrews inivtes us to “…come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most”. Hebrews 4: 16 NLT
Dear Father, Help us to see in the Spirit things we fail to understand. Give us comprehension so that we realise that when we come to you great things are possible. Thank you that we are no alone in our battles – but all of heaven cheers us on, and the blood of Jesus works powerfully on our behalf. In Jesus name, Amen.
EAR2HEAR is a very small gear, in a very large KINGDOM of gears. However God has placed us in key areas to make a difference. Through our various ministries, network, care and pray initiatives we are able to move and work effectively. Truthfully, the needs of this ministry have become enormous; far beyond the abilities of one individual or several entities. That is why we ask that you pray with us. Our needs can only be met by God on this supernatural journey.

COLOURS OF DAY INDIA Raj & Louise Ambati asks “Can you please pray for a three day training session that we going to have on 18 to 20 September 2018. Youth and young pastors will come from different parts of Andhra Pradesh. We are expecting 100 people to attend. Many are not baptised in water or nor filled with the Holy Spirit. We will give them food and shelter for three days. We will be having “open house” sessions in the evenings for members of the public to join so that they may hear the Gospel. We asked a young team to come from Pune Maharastra and one young brother from Thrivandram Kerala who will also be teaching and participating. I have prayed about this and know God is saying yes. 1. Please pray for God to provide as I am planning everything by faith. 2. Pray for people to come...and have open hearts. 3. Pray for baptisms of water and Spirit. 4. Pray for affordable accommodations. God will provide…. Imagine if we can get 100 young people and young pastors sold out for Christ.
Thank you for your prayer support. May God bless you for all that you do in prayer for the Kingdom!
