FRONTLINES SEPTEMBER UPDATE
Dear Covenant Partners,
I hope you are well and blessed. Everyone at Shake The Nations Ministries was devasted to make the difficult decision to cancel our Legacy Conference due to Hurricane Dorian. We were so looking forward to being with all of you and experiencing God’s presence with you, but safety became the ultimate concern. Please pray with us as we consider dates to hold the conference because we are actively looking into rescheduling. Pray that everything will fall into place exactly how God wants it to.
You know, this is a time where we must all be so sensitive to what the Holy Spirit is saying and doing in our lives and in the lives of those around us. We are approaching the Jewish New Year on God’s calendar, and this is always a time for repentance and humbling ourselves.
I have noticed that many times, the voice of the enemy does not just directly tempt me to sin. But frequently, I will recognize him saying something like this: “It doesn’t take all that. You don’t have to be that passionate. It’s okay for you to ease up.” Do you see what a problem that is?
I am positive that when I stand before the Lord on that great Day, He will not look at me and say, “Lydia, you were just too passionate. You were way too serious about worshiping me with all your heart and about preaching My Word. It didn’t take all that!” No! Jesus says that if we love our lives, we will lose them! He says that we must take up our cross and follow Him as we deny ourselves.
We are literally about to enter into a new season on God’s timetable. What should our posture be? I don’t know about you, but I want God to find me on my knees in a surrender that will provoke others to give Him their lives, too. I want the level of my passion to please the Lord and to provoke the religious ones, those who have become bogged down in a false sense of satisfaction.
Take some time in these days of September that the Hebrew calendar calls “The Days of Awe.” Repent before the Lord and humble yourself, because it is the humble who the Lord has promised to lift up.
We love you so much, and we pray that God will minister to you like only He can do.
For His Glory,
Lydia S. Marrow
Please Pray For the Following:
Pray for favor with the government of Cuba as we try to hold a Gospel Campaign there in 2020.
Please pray for a favorable response with the government of Venezuela. We are ready to hold a Gospel Campaign there, but due to problems in the nation, they have not granted us permission yet. Pray that God will allow us to move forward with those plans.
We are still collating all the numbers for all the budgets, but we can already say that we need hundreds of thousands of dollars for all the Gospel Campaigns we will hold in 2020. Please pray that God will provide for every need.
Please pray that God will help us to raise up an army of intercessors via our STN Prayer Network. Some of the regions we are going into are heavily bound by witchcraft and demonic activity, and we want to make sure that our prayer warriors are standing with us in prayer.
