 A burden for prayer (Praying until the burden the Lord has given you goes)

July 29, 2003. I attended a revival service at a local church. At the end of the service, even though the invitation was completed, the Holy Spirit revealed to me that there were still people who were to be saved. I said something to a couple of people who were near me, and I prayed with them. After praying with them, the burden had not left me so I got by myself as best I could and prayed more until the burden left me. (This was all a matter of only maybe 20 minutes) The church service was closed and people were leaving when two teenage girls came out of an overflow room, weeping, and said that they wanted to be saved. Praise God.

Praise God indeed!
Thanks for starting these threads Beauxp, I got a sense they are going to continue to edify us all as more begin to share. This is just a prime example of what the Lord does when we are attentive to His Spirit, something I can only hope that I can become more and more sensitive to.

Yes!!

"In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit [i][b]himself[/b][/i] intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will."
Romans 8: 26,27

September 13, 2003 -- In the last few months I was burdened to pray for the lost to become saved at our Wednesday Night Youth program at church and each time someone was saved. One night about 6 teenage boys. Another time is was a teenage girl. Each time the Lord told me when I had prayed enough.

 Re: A burden for prayer (Praying until the burden the Lord has given you goes)

September 10, 2003 – During the Wednesday Night Youth Program at our church. My brother-in-law was moved by God to speak to 2 teenage girls about Christ and to see if they were saved. Both were convicted of their sin. One responded with opposition and the other was broken and weeping. The one would not even be prayed for, the other desperately wanted to be prayed for. The one would have nothing to do with Christ and the other received Christ with joy.
While this is going on in another part of the building, unknown to me that he was talking to these 2 girls. I was burdened by the Lord to pray specifically for both of them to be convicted of sin and saved.

Give praise, honor, and obedience to our Lord for He is greatly to be praised!

 Re: A burden for prayer (Praying until the burden the Lord has given you goes)

My wife (who had only been saved for 7 weeks) was one day burdened to pray for one of our nieces. She was having her morning time of prayer, she always prays for everyone of our nieces, our nephews and the rest of the close family. When my wife came to this particular nieces name a great burden fell on her and she got alone and prayed specifically for this niece to be saved. She prayed and wept for 4 hours until God lifted the burden. My wife was not sure to get up or not. So she asked the Lord to show her what to do. The Lord directed her to this passage:

Mark 11:22-24 “And Jesus answered saying to them, "Have faith in God. "Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him. "Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.”

My wife then prayed to the Lord, “Lord, are you telling me that my niece is my mountain and if I believe then You will move her.” The Lord put it in my wives heart that He would move her.

Immediately a change of attitude came upon this niece, where she had been so hard and was even looking into Buddhism. Three weeks later she was weeping before the Lord as my wife kneeled down to pray with her to receive the Lord as her Savior.

Incredible stuff -- God personally formed and created the mountains on this earth, and He has the power to move each one by hand. Your wife surely had the faith of a child here...what an encouraging story to those who are from a family of nonbelievers. :-) Thanks.

 Re: A burden for prayer (Praying until the burden the Lord has given you goes)

I was praying one Sunday morning before church for the services that day. The Lord prompted me to pray over the chairs where people would be sitting. As I moved about just praying and letting my hand slide over the top of each chair I was suddenly greatly burdened as I stood behind one chair with my hand resting on it. It felt like a heavy burden dragging my entire body down. I stopped and prayed there for a few minutes until the burden left me. I can remember what I prayed, but I just knew when God and said it was good enough. I also remember asking the Lord, “Why this chair?” The Lord’s reply was that the person who would sit in this chair during our morning worship service needed me to pray for them. I got up and continued through the rest of the sanctuary. (This was actually the first time I had ever done this.)

Between that time and the time of worship service a person came to me and confessed that they had feeling of bitterness in their heart toward another person in the church. They said that they wanted to get rid of them. I talked with them for a minute and we prayed together.

I watched in the morning worship service to see who would sit in the chair, it was the very person who came to talk to me earlier that day about bitterness.

Lord, you still amazes me.
