When You are
Away from Your Kids
PARABLE: KEPT FOR VICTORY! 11/1/97
HEARD: I kept you. I turned you.
PRAYER ENCOURAGEMENT: 13 strikes
in a row!
My son has 2 close friends that spend a lot of time at
our home and I have considered them my adopted sons whom
I love and pray over. Today during bowling I watched one
of them flub up consistently. This wasn’t like him and I
could tell he was getting discouraged. I bound the enemy
and prayed the Lord would help him so he wouldn’t feel
bad about himself. Immediately he got 4 strikes in a
row. They won the game and that gave me such joy to see
the results of loving prayer!
I was getting tired of sitting so I decided to walk next
door to the flower shop and on the way out the door I
said, “Now Lord, just because the prayer support is
leaving, please continue Your favor upon my boys. Bless
them and help them to bowl well.”
When I came back, they had just finished that game. They
were announcing over the loud speaker that my son bowled
his best game ever: 278. He got 13 strikes in a row,
including the last several from the previous game. We
were all amazed.
I knew it was a sign and encouragement that God honors
your loving prayers over all you have adopted. Your
prayers keep them and make a difference in their lives!
WORD TO PONDER 11/1/97 PRAYER COVERAGE
What a difference your prayers make for those you
love. It places a canopy of My favor over them and
looses My angels from demonic hindrance to move on their
behalf. I shall show you signs that your prayers do make
a difference and this shall encourage you. And you shall
know that whether your loved ones are near or far away
that your prayers are equally effective.
“The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man
avails much.” (James 5:16-17 NKJV)
John 17:12-16 NKJV
While I was with them in the world, I kept them in
Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept ; and none
of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the
Scripture might be fulfilled. 13 But now I come to You,
and these things I speak in the world, that they may
have My joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given
them Your word; and the world has hated them because
they are not of the world, just as I am not of the
world. 15 I do not pray that You should take them out of
the world, but that You should keep them from the evil
