This is the day the Lord has made ministers in intercession for GRPM. We are grateful to God and to you for standing in the gap in prayer and intercession for us and the entire ministry. We want to say that every great work can only be effective through prayer and intercession. Sometime our groans and travail before God without necessary uttering words to be understood by human beings are powerful to open doors just as Hannah in the Old Testament did 1 Sam 1:12-18. Your intercessory prayer is a spiritual battle and it takes spiritual methods to experience spiritual breakthrough. We want to assure you that your prayers are already being answered as we see doors being opened in California.God is speaking to us about organising a prayer conference here in Los Angeles,please kindly continue to intensify the prayer of intercession for more breakthroughs. We believe that as we stand together in prayer God will establish an altar in California.Remain blessed in God's awesome presence.

Calvin affirms that "Words fail to explain how necessary prayer is". He says that the providence of God does not exclude the exercise of human faith. While the Keeper of Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps, Calvin says, "yet He is inactive, as if forgetting us, when He sees is in idle mute.
So Abraham prayed to God and God healed the family of Abimelech (Gen 20: 17). Prayer has to be offered. Intercessory prayer has to be made. God specifically 'programmed Himself' to listen and to answer Abraham's prayer for Abimelech. The environment we set for prayer, the posture we take in prayer, the focus and attention we attach to prayer do result in great answers we receive from God. God answers your prayer. As we get ourselves this weekend for intercession for our churches, pastors, families, services and the nations may we receive direct and specific answers from the Lord. God bless you
Breaking Through by Prayer
Luke 18:1 - 'Men ought always to pray and not give up'
A week last Sunday, the 9th of November, marked the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Berliners mounting the wall and hacking away at it with picks and hammers became an iconic picture of something that seemed so unchanging and unbending-Communist Eastern Europe-shifting forever. Whilst we recognise there are still issues and tensions, the recent upheavals in Ukraine being a case in point, almost all commentators agree that what took place at that time was a
For believers we recognise the spiritual dimension to all this. The situation had caused many to pray over the years, even on occasions defying the sceptical view that nothing would ever alter. Let me give you one example of this:
This year in June Pastor Christian Fuhrer passed away aged 71, though living in Germany all his life his obituary found itself into the pages of the British press. In 1980 Fuhrer began to lead St. Nicholas church in Leipzig then in Eastern Germany where atheism was the official ideology. By 1982 prayer meetings were being held every Monday evening for change in the nation, for several years little more than 50 attended regularly. Then in 1988 a special prayer event took place that proved a catalyst for other prayer contexts and a momentum that ultimately proved unstoppable.
The GDR Secret Police - The Stasi - sought to cordon off the St Nicholas church on Mondays evenings but to no avail. By October 7th of 1989 four thousand people turned out to pray, days later 70,000, and by late October 320,000 came onto the streets for a peaceful prayer vigil, a few days after this the wall began to be toppled!
Pastor Fuhrer said: 'I will never forget that day, it was a miracle of biblical proportions'. What 'walls' do we need to see tumble? Mark Batterson, the leader of a fast growing church in Washington DC said: 'Prayer is the big difference between you working on God's behalf and God working on our behalf'
Never give up on prayer, who knows what the Almighty is about to do! (Phil Pye)
Blessings to you intercessors,this topic we are praying about today"poverty and homeless" is a reality in our present world ,we see this on TV,hear them on radio and experience them in our neighbour hood.
For what we are seeing on in California (Los Angeles) at the moment its a living, vivid and sad REALITY.This city is known to be a mega rich city actually the rich get richer,riches unimaginable; but yet there are numerous people who are poor,destittutes and homeless.The worst is seeing mothers with their children roaming the streets of the city begging for food,there is one woman and her daughter Esther particularly, who approached us for help we invited them home and we offered them food and they went their way.However the situation seemed to become so bad that they had to knock on our door in the middle of the night to ask for help. Apart from that we also see people going from one refuse bin to the other looking for food not only that there are people who look healthy and normal but yet sleep by the roadside.These are the realities of the need to cry out to God in prayer so God will intervene in the lives of these poor people. We believe your prayer and support for GRPM will help make a difference in our world. God bless you. Rev Gabriel & Pastor Faith Kretchy
