REQUEST FROM THE EDITOR: We receive quite a lot of time-sensitive prayer requests between Prayer Letters. It grieves my heart that we can't just send them out, but it would overload your inbox! Would you please pray in tongues for 5 minutes, each day, for those urgent, time sensitive, prayer requests Father knows about. As you can tell from the first few headlines, the urgency can become overwhelming! And that's not Father's wish for the Intercessors! Thanks, and Blessings, Carol

God Himself does not propose to judge a man until he is dead. So why should you?

Beloved Intercessors,

I promised in our last Prayer Letter that I would share Grace McGonigle's second vision she received when she had seen the Holy City above Jerusalem, bathed in the supernatural light of God.

"I saw a huge fig leaf bud, getting ready to burst into bloom. I knew that the fig tree spoke of Israel, and remembered the parable in Mark 14:28-30; 'When you see the fig tree begin to bloom, know that it is near, even at the door. Behold this generation shall not pass away 'till all these things be fulfilled.' I said, 'Lord, what are you saying?'

"His reply, 'I said: when you see the fig tree begin to Bloom!' (And the inference seemed to be; not when it is a root in a dry ground, nor when it begins to grow, and then puts forth branches but rather, when it is in a state of bloom will all these things be fulfilled). Such a revelation! I happened to be living in Israel when I believe that this physical sign was taking place."

Today, we know that all over Israel, there are orchards, and gardens, and forests, where once there was only barren land, and swamps.

This week I received a letter from my friend, Heidilinde, in Berlin; she wrote, "We all live in expectation. I have had six dreams that the time for HIS coming is so near! So very near! Sister Gwen, we will see our wonderful Lord, very soon."

This weekend we will be preaching in Fort Smith AR, at Apostle Bobby and Teresa Hogan's Labour Day Prophetic Conference. Pray that the Lord will prepare all our hearts for HIS soon return!

Thank you for sending your loving support through your sacrificial gifts. And many thanks for holding us up in your prayers. This is a ministry of sharing in the responsibilities and in the coming rewards.

Beloved Handmaidens, Servants, and Friends of this Ministry,

Greetings from Fort Smith, Arkansas with Exodus 17:11-13. " And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword."
You don't usually hear from me, but I felt led of the Lord in a dream this morning to write you this week.
As many of you know, Sister Gwen is writing a book. The title is yet to be revealed, but it is a daily devotional based on inspirations from the Holy Spirit. At last count she has written about 205 days.
Many of you have heard Sister Gwen tell you about her visitation from Papa Jim on her 84th birthday last October 1st. In that visitation, Papa Jim told her how when she had been sick and near to death 7 months earlier in March, God allowed him to see all of us praying around the world to not take Sister Gwen home yet - although she was ready and waiting at the gates of Heaven. Papa Jim told God, "Send her back. They need her more than I do." And how we have needed her, and still do.
We believe it was at that point; Sister Gwen took a tremendous turn for the better and started recovering in the hospital. What was supposed to be about 3 days on a ventilator only ended up being 18 hours. Within 2 days of being transferred out of Intensive Care in the hospital to a regular room, Sister Gwen began writing this book.
Throughout this past year, finishing "the book" has become a tremendous burden on Sister Gwen. Especially after many gave a nice donation for the first copies off the press at this year's World Convention (this money is being saved for publishing the book). Although, she is a strong woman in the Spirit, in the flesh, she is almost 85 and not as strong as she used to be. By this, I mean the burden of getting this book done with the ministry demands being so great. Sister Gwen used to be able to write while she was traveling, but just isn't able to do that anymore. Sister Gwen (being a Zebulon) says, "A Zebulon has the pen of a ready writer." Her pen is ready, but she needs the time and quiet place with her computer to do it.
In these times, Sister Gwen has not been able to just "hole herself up" somewhere to write because of the burden she feels for the finances of End-Time Handmaidens. Which brings me to the reason for this letter that the Lord started dictating to me, in a dream, this morning. Would you commit to sending $85 to End-Time Handmaidens for the next 6 months, so Sister Gwen can focus on this devotional? I ask for $85 because Sister Gwen will be turning 85 years of age on October 1. She already has some preaching commitments over this time, but would love to be able to finish this book and then do what is next for her on God's timetable. You may be able to give a one-time gift of $85.00 or do it monthly. Please seek the Lord, in this time, and see what He would have you to do. Pray that her cottage could be the "quiet place by the sea" to help her.
Let's all be like Aaron and Hur by taking the "load" off of Sister Gwen and the "stone" that still allows her to rest. It would be the greatest birthday present we could all give her.
