A Statement of Facts
The Lord Uses Women

     There were so many caring and God fearing women who helped the Lord Jesus with His ministry.  And throughout the Scriptures one can see that God has placed into the hearts of many of them a hunger to touch lives and help others through acts of kindness and generosity, and through  their prayers.


     Jesus, the Bible tells us,  had Mary Magdalene, of whom He had previously delivered from demonic oppression.   Then there was Joanna and Susanna and "many others" who devoted their lives to Jesus and assisted Him (Luke 8:1-3).


     I myself believe that women often make the best prayer warriors and intercessors.   Perhaps it is their God given desire to show mercy as well as a longing to see people experience the love of Christ that makes them want to pray frequently and fervently.


     It appears, too, as if the Lord has placed inside women tender hearts that long to plead for those who are hurting.   They want people to be helped and healed, and then get safely nurtured in the arms of the Savior.


     In my own life God has placed some spiritually mature and caring women to

intercede for me, and to bathe me in their prayers.


     Yesterday I worte about Sister Jean.   Today I want to mention Connie and Carolyn.   They have their own families, yet God has called them to pray for me.  They've been doing this for many years. 


     Connie and Carolyn attend the same church in Virginia.  In a letter Carolyn wrote me shortly before the New Year, and she said these words:


     "Brother David...Connie and I pray for you always.   I always see you in my prayers like a strong tree whose branches extend out to the four corners of the earth.   I don't know how God is going to do it, but your ministry is going to bless multitudes.   So many are wounded and fearful, and you are going to be a fruit (word) spoken in season."


     Slowly, little by little, Carolyn and Connie's prayers for me are being answered.   And it is only by God's grace that what Carolyn has written here can come to pass.  For in and of myself I can never become these things.


     How thankful I am that God has blessed me with such kind and loving Christian sisters.  Their prayers and words of encouragement are a continual blessing.


     I pray for them, too.
