This is a letter to our friends –

Open the windows!

“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” [Malachi 3:10]

I have a friend whose son is in his late teens. Over the past few years his mom and dad discovered he had been drifting deeper into drugs. They traced it to a girlfriend. Sound familiar?

His parents did what they could to cut him off from negative influences. More significantly – They never let up on praying for him. Recently, a friend invited him to a church youth meeting. In the midst of the meeting, their son told the group he had been on a destructive path and wanted to get things right.

His mom told me, “He came home flying higher than a kite! The change was instant! He is his old self again. He has been talking with his dad about career choices!” Yes, change can happen that fast – GIVEN – prayer and an out-pouring of the Holy Spirit!

During coffee and prayers this morning I had a thought about the giant Trump rallies. The other day a lady who had been standing in line at the rally too long, had a problem with insulin and fainted. As medics helped her the crowd spontaneously began softly singing “Amazing Grace”.

Suppose 20,000 people at such a rally were to pray 2nd Chronicles 7:14 together –
“If My people who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray, And seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways,
Then I will hear from Heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their land!”

Do you suppose God would honor such a prayer if prayed in unison by 20,000 Americans! Those who have studied the history of such moves by the hand of God will know it is possible. I wonder if such a move is what God wants from us.

Dear Lord let it be so.
