Prayer Letter, May 5, 2017


Beloved Intercessors:

Love and greetings from America's flooded Midwest! Philip and I started out Wednesday on our spring tour. Due to the road closures in Missouri all along our normal route, we had to head south to go across the Mississippi River another way. It added hours to our journey, and interestingly, once again we crossed the Mississippi in the region of the New Madrid fault. We crossed it in January and took time to pray there. Of course this time we prayed also.  I didn't understand at the time why we would need to go this way again, until I read Gene's portion of this prayer letter, talking about how President Trump is trying to jumpstart the peace talks in the Middle East again. It will not be good for our nation if we push Israel into the so-called "two-state solution." 

           God promised Abraham in Genesis 12:3, "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee..." Throughout history we have seen that this also applies to Abraham's descendants through Isaac and Jacob. Even when God used Babylon to punish His people for their disobedience, Babylon was also destroyed. When President Bush pressured Ariel Sharon to move the Israeli settlers (who had built beautiful communities, farms and industry) out of the Gaza Strip, within 24 hours Hurricane Katrina was spawned off the coast of Africa. The same proportion of American residents of the Gulf Coast was displaced as the number of settlers who were removed from Gaza.

           If we as a nation force the dividing of God's land, placing it under Muslim sovereignty (another god), the prophets have prophesied that our land will also be divided. I don't remember seeing such political and social division in our nation as we have now. I suspect that part of the reason for this is our State Department and succession of multiple presidents' involvement in pressing for a "two-state solution." Hitler also came up with an evil "solution," his "Final Solution" attacking the same people group--God's Chosen People. It was a disaster for six million Jews and others. It was the devil's plan. Germany lost over 69 million people in the war. 

           Please pray in tongues for God's purposes and timing to be accomplished, and that our president will not be a party to dividing God's Land. 

"And there shall be floods and floods and floods…" Part 2: For those of you who receive this prayer letter by email, you may have already received your angel letter yesterday. For those who receive it by snail mail, you should be having it in the next one to three weeks. 

           In it I wrote about the flooding in Missouri and Arkansas and how it reminded me of the prophetic word that was given in the 1930's:

“It shall come as a breath...
And the breath shall bring the wind...
And the wind shall bring the rain.
And there shall be floods and floods and floods...
And torrents and torrents and torrents.
Souls shall be saved like falling leaves from mighty oaks swept by a hurricane.

Arms and legs shall come down from heaven...
...And there shall be no ebb.”

           Driving across Arkansas, the bootheel of Missouri, and southern Illinois, we have seen river after river and stream after stream that is overflowing their banks, flooding nearby woods and fields. We have also seen a number of videos of homes and businesses that of been flooded, even in our own little town of Jasper.

           Earlier this year we heard and read the accounts of flooding in California. While flooding is not that unusual because of spring rains, I have never before been moved by the Holy Spirit to connect that news with this prophetic word. I believe we are on the verge of a tremendous move of God! 

           I was just reading this afternoon in Revelation chapter 10 about the angel that stood with one foot on the land and one on the sea declaring there should be time no more. The angel held in his hand a little book and John was commanded to go and take the book from the angel and eat it. He was told that it would be as sweet as honey in his mouth and make his belly bitter. Then John, who by this time was an old man and a prisoner, was told, "Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."

           Our theme scripture as End-Time Handmaidens and Servants is Acts 2:17-18, where it describes the great last days outpouring of God's Spirit and how his handmaidens and servants will prophesy. We are on the threshold of the greatest days to be alive and perhaps the worst days to be alive. Even as many people are in extreme distress over their losses (including loss of life) with this flooding, we are going to see many extremely distressing situations that will cause us to have bitterness of soul in our bellies. But at the same time, when people's hearts have been made tender by their circumstances, the sweetness of the presence of the Lord will be in our mouths as we speak His Word. 

           Let us press into His Presence, surrendering our will to His, so that he can live his life through us, speaking His Word through us, and doing His works.

Pray for France! France's elections are this Sunday. Please pray for God's purpose is to be accomplished, that His choice will be elected, and that the streets will not erupt into violence as a result of the outcome. Francine Lovell has given us this input:

Satan is trying to hasten the times so that there is NO REVIVAL! Satan is trying to hasten the time of revealing the antichrist so that there is no revival! He is trying to hasten the time of the tribulations! That is the present confrontation. Bind a “civil war” in the streets of France, particularly just after the results if the election (France is 7 hours ahead of us; it would be our Sunday morning, May 7th). Invite the Price of Peace to rule and reign!


Thank you for your prayers for us as we travel. In addition to a number of meetings, we'll be visiting with my dad (he will turn 89 this month) and some of my siblings on this trip. Our meeting schedule will be published soon via email and Facebook. Please join us if we are going to be in your area--we would love to see you!

Your handmaiden and servant,

Sharon and Philip
