I have been waking up in the middle of the night and praying in tongues a LOT in order to breakthrough.  This has been a burden to pray in tongues more during the day and some days it seems like all day long but I know that isn’t so.  I have found that if I pray more during the night I hear Him better.


Today I suddenly wondered if I kept it up, if I would get the breakthrough we are needing as we have been facing some heavy duty hindrances.




I was thinking about how Kat Kerr said she pursued the Lord for a whole year and then one day the Lord showed up and told her He was going to start taking her to trips to heaven. Wayne and I had also talked about how Neville spent 1 year sitting still in His Presence and Sadhu spent 6 months getting in the middle of the night to pray before their received their increase in the Lord. Just as I was thinking this, I turned on Perry Stone and he was speaking about the Keys of intercessory Prayer.  I turned it on just as he was saying the following!


QUOTE PERRY STONE – From the Keys of Intercessory Prayer

“It appears to be from scripture these individuals knew there were specific periods of time when they would pray that maybe there would be a more open window of heaven or perhaps they were building up their prayer vile up in heaven.  So that as in Acts 10, Cornelious, his prayers and alms eventually came up before God as a memorial.  Is it possible that he was praying during that prayer time.”


Acts 10:1-4 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band, 2 A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, who gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God 2always. 3 He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius. 4 And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Your prayers and your alms are come up for a memorial before God.


UPDATE 5/08/13:  Todd said tonight that in 1989 he prayed for 12 hours a day for 3 months that God would give him the healing anointing.  He prayed for over 1,000 people before they got healed.  He also said the John H Lakes prayed for 6 months before he got the anointing to heal.




“I want to be identified as part of the generation of Jacob. I seek His face every day – all day! How about you? I wanted this experience to continue, but there were things He wanted me to see. I began to see the faces of other people who were seeking His presence. Some of them seemed to be straining to use every bit of spiritual authority and gifting they carried to get into His presence. It didn’t seem to be working, and they pressed in with more and more of their strength. You see that was the problem. They were trying to do it in their own strength. We are not able to make this happen. It is all by the Holy Spirit. Remember Ephesians 2:18, “For through Him (Jesus) we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.” May we always go to the Holy Spirit and place a claim on this promise in the Word of God! May you experience being drawn into His presence by the Holy Spirit when you access this promise through faith in His Word!




SANDY COMMENTS:  Praying can be inspired by a burden to prayer, it can be inspired by hunger and thirst for more of God. It can be inspired by obligation and duty and flesh.  Or it can be inspired simply by being faithful because you choose to love.  The key is to ask yourself, “Why am I praying and how am I doing this?” 


He does promise He will reward {recompense, render, restore, deliver, requite} those who diligently seek Him.


Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.



Strong's Greek Dictionary
1567. εκζητεω ekzeteo
from 1537 and 2212; to search out, i.e. (figuratively)investigate, crave, demand, (by Hebraism) worship:en- (re-)quire, seek after (carefully, diligently).




Doing what is faithful

In hardship and ease.

Living an overcomer’s life

In my pursuit of

God, Whom I crave above all.

Entering in with joy,

Not holding back, I know He

Cares for me. 

Enter with diligence, for His reward is coming.


Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
