Adopt A Merchant Week

Adopt A Merchant Week

13And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I Am], so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in (through) the Son. 14 [Yes] I will grant [I Myself will do for you] whatever you shall ask in My Name [as presenting all that I Am].”      John 14:13 &14



This week the Lord has said that we are to be more “community minded”.  Therefore, He has instructed that you choose a specific merchant that you frequent or that is in your neighborhood and provide a prayer covering for them.   For one week, pray for them throughout the day as the Holy Spirit brings them to your mind.  This is to be in addition to any other praying that you might already be engaged in – in this area.

If you feel lead, you can express to the merchant that you will be praying for them this week and inquire if they have any specific desires.   Not everyone will be used in the same manner.  Some of you will remain anonymous, while others of you will not. 

Remember you are not to interfere with their normal flow of business.  Your times of praying for them will NOT be done at their location.  (Unless they request that you do so.)  It is imperative that you are led by the Holy Spirit; as to maintain an orderly and descent representation of Him.

Lastly, seek God for wisdom and direction before and as you pray.  Ask the Holy Spirit to direct you as you pray so that your prayers will be strategic in nature and powerful in implementation.

Lastly again, (you know that most preachers have more than one closing!) Whatever is done in secret – will be rewarded openly.  This addresses your motive.  Although you may be lead to share this endeavor with others or with the merchant; ALL of the glory is to be attributed to the Lord – and belongs to Him alone. 

Note: Some of you will be lead to incorporate this into a ministry project or a group effort.  Advance however the Holy Spirit leads.  Just make certain that He is directing you, and that HE gets all of the recognition.

“ For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.”                            James 2:26
