Ignite your faith with other believers

online prayer groupsI’d like to share with you something I read recently in an online chat room, because it made me think of you.

The person writing this has been going through a very difficult time. Then, this breakthrough happened, praise the Lord:

“Our priest started an Ignite the Night event this past week and it will happen once a month. I went and was rejuvenated as it brought me back to my college days and who I used to be: filled with joy, love, happiness, and genuine support from those closest to me. There were also prayer teams and I went and received prayer, and it again filled my soul and I received some peace. One of the images was Jesus kneeling before me while I sat in the healing shrine chair, and he was blessing my feet for the journey. Not illuminating the path, but blessing my feet so I can keep taking the next right step. It was beautiful and glorious. I am getting stronger and more firm.”

Do you have an opportunity like that to be prayed for? Do you have a community of friends who are on fire in the Holy Spirit?

In my own trials, being around Spirit-filled people who pray for me, in an environment of praise and worship, has been very uplifting — it’s healing balm for my soul. This is why Good News Ministries curates a list of online prayer groups that anyone can join.

The Miracle of the Magnificat

Who is it that you’ve been praying for? Or what have you been praying for that doesn’t seem to have an answer, that God doesn’t seem to be doing anything about? What suffering are you in that you’re praying would come to an end, and it seems like you don’t have enough faith? Has the question crossed your mind that maybe there’s something wrong with you in regards to why the prayer is not getting answered?

I want you to know something there is nothing wrong with you and there’s nothing wrong with God and it’s not about what flaws are in your relationship with God. It’s not about what’s wrong. I want to invite you to look at this from a different perspective, and I want to use Mary the Blessed Mother of Christ as our example.

This is one of my very first videos! As I watch it today, my 2010-self is ministering to the 2023-me. I pray that she ministers to you now too.
