Born Out of Anguish

Anguish (noun): excruciating or acute distress, suffering, or pain: the anguish of grief.

A warrior of God’s Kingdom died  as a result of a car crash yesterday and I continue to be so blessed by his life and his passion for God. Thank you Lord for the life of David Wilkerson.

– some excerpts below:

“I see more of the world coming into the church and impacting the church than the church impacting the world;   obsession with entertainment in God’s house – a hatred of correction and a hatred of reproof –  whatever happened to anguish in the house of God?

A true passion for Christ comes out of a baptism of anguish

You search the scripture, and you’ll find that when God determined to recover a ruined situation, he would share his own anguish for what He saw happening to His church and His people and He would find a praying man and He would take that man and literally baptise Him in anguish.

A true prayer life IS BORN OUT OF ANGUISH. If you set your heart to pray, God is going to come and start sharing His heart with you.

There is going to be no renewal, no revival, no awakening until we are willing to let Him once again break us.”

O Lord, baptise me in anguish that I might pray.
“Pray without Ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”  1 Thess 5v17,18
