A Night Walk in Thailand

Awakened by Easton at 12:30am this morning, we were told Morgan wanted to Skype with us.  We shook off the sleepiness and logged in to share some minutes with her.  She wanted to share with us her experiences during their “Monday Night” (11 hours earlier) prayer walk.

Walking and praying as a group through the main street in Phuket, Morgan saw a girl along the side of the road and sensed God telling them to stop and talk with her.  They were to continue on as a group; Morgan along with the rest.  Then a YWAM gal walking with them stopped to begin talking with that young girl and quickly asked three of the others (Morgan included) to come pray with her.  This began an amazing night of following the Spirit’s nudging to pray for, share with, and show God’s love and power to those whom they came into contact.

Deep sadness in many eyes…

Girls who wanted to talk on the streets, but knew they couldn’t say much out of fear and the need to get back to work…

Seeing the sad possession in the eyes and praying against a demon-possessed “magician” and another woman…

Praying over a cripple, asking for healing… he wasn’t ready to trust in God and leave his only source of income (fortune telling)… but he asked for them to come back again and he would try to stand…

Overwhelmed with all they experienced, Morgan was ready to fight against the spiritual darkness of this world again tonight and tomorrow night and whenever God opens the door while they walk the street and pray for God’s power to reign supreme.

Pray with us against all the darkness around them in Thailand that God will keep them strong and arm them for the battle they are experiencing each night.  They are 11 hours ahead of us, so your prayers are most directly beneficial between 10am – 1pm (Eastern Time) as they are on the streets praying and sharing God’s love each week night.

Eph. 6:12-20
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  (NIV)

God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we'll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.

Be prepared. You're up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it's all over but the shouting you'll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You'll need them throughout your life. God's Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other's spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.

And don't forget to pray for me. Pray that I'll know what to say and have the courage to say it at the right time, telling the mystery to one and all, the Message that I, jailbird preacher that I am, am responsible for getting out.  (The Message)

  1. Thank you for sharing more details from Morgan. I'll be sharing this with my friends via fb and would love to also use it on my blog, if that's okay.

    I am so blessed by how God is using our girls.
