I Love P.M.S. - Ministry of Intercession




Click above to find out more...

Women of the Word,
One of the biggest reasons I began blogging was not only to share God's Life-Changing Word, but also that this blog might serve as an outlet to pray for the needs of others.  

The ministry of intercession is not a passive ministry...it is highly active and brings forth change from the inside and out!

When one of my beautiful sisters in the LORD asked me to be a part of her special prayer ministry for incarcerated ladies, I said YES!!!!  And so now, I want to share the joy of speaking these Beautiful Women's names before His Throne and asking His favor and blessing upon them.  The LORD has reserved in Heaven so much more for them...and each of us...yet here on Earth!

As you begin to intercede for them and look upon their faces, I pray the LORD grant you compassionate hearts that beat with His and hearing ears that hear His Words of Life and Love.  

Please feel free to leave a prayer of encouragement for each or all of them and Miss Judy will make sure they know we are talking about them TO THE LORD!!

These are their prayer requests taken by Judy each week she meets with them.  Pray for this lovely Judy as well as she faithfully ADMINISTERS the LOVE OF CHRIST to these ladies.

  


A heartfelt thank you for joining us.
Know that your prayers are truly cherished by these women.  ~ Judy B.


31 "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, accompanied by all the angels, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be assembled before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates sheep from goats.33 The `sheep' he will place at his right hand and the `goats' at his left. 34 "Then the King will say to those on his right, `Come, you whom my Father has blessed, take your inheritance, the Kingdom prepared for you from the founding of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you made me your guest, 36 I needed clothes and you provided them, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.' 37 Then the people who have done what God wants will reply, `Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?38 When did we see you a stranger and make you our guest, or needing clothes and provide them? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison, and visit you?' 40 The King will say to them, `Yes! I tell you that whenever you did these things for one of the least important of these brothers of mine, you did them for me!'  

~ Matthew 25

Our Most Gracious Heavenly Father,
I've read each of these names aloud to you. You know the number of the very hairs on their heads for they are yours Lord. I don't know what path brought them to this place, but Lord teach them through this experience. Draw them closer to you. Help them to know that there is nothing they have done or can do that You cannot forgive. Lord, I pray that each of these women will find a passion for you Lord and ask to be used by you. Imagine the changed lives if each of these women reflected and represented you where ever they traveled. Bless each of their families as they are away. Lord, I ask that your will be done in each of their lives. Use them Lord.

In Your Holy Name,
Amen.

Faithful Father,
I come into agreement with my Sisters interceding for the grace, favor and blessing to guard the hearts and minds of Pamela, Lovely, Angela, Colleen, Michelle W., Michelle E., Alisha, Linda, Crystal, Lori, Stacey, Amanda, Latoya and Falisha, Maria and Pearlene.

Father God, You have shown me a beautiful illustration at one point in my shameful existence that the very depth of our own personal pits is at least the HEIGHT to which YOU will raise those who call upon Your Name! Because that is what YOU do...bring beauty from ashes for the glory of Your Name and the good of Your servants!

It is then, when You've picked us up out of the pit...when you set our feet upon the Rock and establish our steps...You put that NEW SONG in our mouths...and when we sing It - HalleluYAH! - MANY WILL SEE and put their trust and confident reliance in ADONAI!! (Psalm 40:1-3) It is then that we know the purpose You died to give us and LIVE to fill us with...

Shalom Aleichem upon each of you Beautiful Sisters as the LORD continues to move in each of your lives...shalom Aleichem! (Shalom -Abundant Peace be upon you).

I praise and thank You ADONAI for Your Loving-kindness that LOVES us past all our performances in life...and gives us LIFE in return.

in YESHUA's Name I ask...

lvn you from MO...

Father, I thank you for divine favor now on the behalf of my dear sisters. God you know what there needs are before they even asked. I pray that things will begin to work in their favor. I pray that things would begin to shift on their behalf. Wrap your loving arms around them so they will know that they are not alone. In Jesus Name!! Amen!!

Holy Father, we thank You that You are the God of second, thousandth, and millionth chances. Bless these beautiful ladies who are reaching out to the One Name under heaven by which we can be saved. Help them feel Your constant presence at their side. Calm their minds and lift their hearts. Drive them to your Word and to the words of others who have been where they are and have found a way out of the turmoil. Give them strength, courage and a hunger for knowing Your will and the power to carry that out. Protect them from the Evil One as they take their refuge in You.

In the Holy Name of Jesus, the Most Powerful Name Ever Spoken,

Amen.

Oh Father,
You know us each by name, and you know the thoughts we have before we have them..We also know that in YOU everything can be made new. It's with your grace and love that are unceasing and unending that these women CAN have hope that only comes from you. Father, ANY of us could have found ourselves in a place where circumstances, choices or situations have us bound, but IN YOU there is freedom and a NEW life.

I pray for each of these women, knowing that deep in their hearts they did not CHOOSE this path and I pray that Father with YOUR promises living in their lives, they will see hope in dark times, peace in desperate situations and a Father whose loving arms are always open, waiting to receive them...Help them move on Father, free them from their pasts and cleanse them from all that binds them...

Use them Lord, Use them for the Glory of your name....
It is in YOU that hope springs eternal...

Carmen,
what an amazing ministry...these women need intercessory prayer and they need powerful prayers to overcome all that burdens them...You are wonderful for letting us pray along side you!

love you!
lori

Father God, You are close to the broken hearted and you heal those who are crushed in spirit. Thank you Lord that you have come to SET us Free. Oh Jesus have mercy on these women, draw them HS to the only one who can set them FREE that being our Lord Jesus. May they sense your forgiveness as they repent and turn from sin. Thank you Jesus that you do rescue us from the PIT of self destruction. As you have done for countless others Lord please do for these women... set them free from the chains of sin.
For your glory Lord. Amen

But as for me, Heaven forbid that I should boast about anything except the execution-stake of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah! Through Him, as far as I am concerned, the world has been put to death on the stake; and through Him, as far as the world is concerned, I have been put to death on the stake.  For neither being circumcised nor being uncircumcised matters; what matters is being a NEW CREATION. And as many as order their lives by this rule, shalom upon them and mercy, and upon the Isra'el of God! 

~ Galatians 6:14-16
