Our first attempt at this new project is in the books. The plan was for the team in the office to do warfare and for the Tribe around the world to support us in prayer, without having any direct electronic connection.
We prayed for every single woman in the tribe. They may or may not have a daughter and they may or may not have conflict, but every one of them had or has a mother.
My observations are as follows:
-Our tribe is pretty lame at following directions. So many people wrote and called wanting to know where the connection was for the live stream. Sigh. We explained in detail in a blog ahead of time and it was an exercise in futility for many. For those of you who read and followed instructions and joined us in spirit, THANK YOU. You are a balm to my soul.
-It was so important for there to be support from the Body. I have been in very rough shape since a ministry I did a few days ago went weird and I got badly hurt. Still trying to dig out from that. What I brought to the table was my will, but I was really not well yesterday. I am grateful that the well being of the Tribe does not depend on me. Bringing our combined authority to the table matters a lot. Your agreement yesterday put a hurt on the enemy.
-The enemy ran a lot of interference. Several people have written of having put all kinds of reminders in place, and they did not work. The most dedicated, well meaning individuals were effectively distracted at the hour and failed to consciously participate.
-God moved anyway. Even though individuals were not engaged with the call on the soul level, several reported either a sudden awareness of healing or a sudden awareness of demonic manifestations during that time. So God made the devil look foolish.
-We have lots of reports of manifestations and emotional warm fuzzies. That is good. It indicates that we achieved something, somewhere. BUT, our metric is “measurable, verifiable, sustained change” which means the reconciliation of mothers and daughters in a substantial way. That will take some time as all the soul stuff still needs to be overcome, BUT now it can happen since the critters are out of the way. Time to press in with some face to face engagement to take back the lost ground.
So, as messy as it was, we put a scratch or two on the enemy with our first attempt. We can do better. I will be releasing a blog later today with our next strategy and date.
Hopefully someone will actually read it.
