casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7, NASB95)

With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints, (Ephesians 6:18, NASB95)

You are going through a tunnel of pain and grief for the situations and persons around you.  How much greater is My grief for them!  Let your spirit reach up to Me and then out to these others.  In union with Me your prayers for them will be more effective.  Your desires for them will be changed in My directions – not your own!  Put all these burdens on Me and I will give you rest.  Let go and let Me take this responsibility that weighs so heavily on your heart.  You cannot lift their loads for them.  But through you (as you abide in Me) I can lift these persons into My greater Reality and situations will change.  Pray for them in the Spirit, letting My Spirit – in union with yours – pray through you.

    This is truly a word from the Lord for me. I have lost my best friend Lydia Lankford, who was a lead prayer minister and my dear friend and professor The Rev. Dr. Martha Giltinan ( whom I lived with for 5 months when I first started seminary till my house was ready) from seminary in the last 9 months. Last night at our service with a fellow clergy, I wept uncontrollably and kept feeling like I was in a long tube far away in great grief yet joy at the same time (note the devotion first verse of this page Dayspring 81). We were in the process of having the Eucharist and I kept getting visions of the blood and body ofChrist ( note the Topic Cloud on this page) and that I needed to take it for healing of anxiety and fear and physical healing ( I have an MRI today Dec. 15th to make sure there is no more cancer in my spine) . PLUS, I am taking my exam for the priesthood for the second time in January and the enemy keeps attacking me with fear of failure for which I am in spiritual battle daily as the date gets closer Jan 5-7. I know the enemy DOES NOT want me to be a priest in our church because I WILL PROCLAIM WITH BOLDNESS the Gospel !!! As I knelt at the commuion rail our bishop was there accepting another mission church into his diocese in SC and giving the bread. Suddenly, he handed the bread to the deacon next to him who was giving the wine and took his healing oil out of his pocket and anointed me and prayed for emotional and physical healing and that the light of Christ would shine through me with such power that all would know Jesus lives in me and through me. I of course melted in tears. So you see the Lord is still using this devotion some 40 years later to touch His people, for Anne was hearing the Spirit as she wrote. Thank you for your ministry Dale, in this web site. I a, so sorry I did not get a chance to meet you and Betty. But I know I soon will !! This word is conformation to me today . In closing the words. “LET GO and SURRENDER” WERE THE FINAL WORDS I NEEDED TO HEAR ONCE AGAIN.
    Thanks be to God who HAS given me the Victory through my Lord Jesus Christ,
    Martha Horn
