Intercessor: ‘You Changed History!’
Can we really change history? The short answer is yes.
Recently, IFA reported that through a seeming “coincidence,” one of the participants in an IFA state prayer call found herself locked down in a mall during an active shooter situation — even as the prayer call was going on: IFA Prayer Call Interrupts an Active Shooter.
Susan S. from Alabama posted this comment on that article:
“Amazing testimony about God using prayer during mall shooting, encourages us to obey Holy Spirit guidance.
“Another favorite prayer report was in IFA’s “Miracles in Ukraine” article on web that included big wind suddenly blowing parachutes of Russian soldiers back to their Russian side so they didn’t land on Ukranian soldiers (following soldier earlier telling his family in Ukraine to gather prayer support since Ukrainians just got intelligence Russian paratroopers planned to land in their area).
“I was impressed because, unaware of any of this situation, I had ‘happened’ to trustingly pray 1) for God to use weather (knowing Jesus calmed storm) to help Ukrainians (in conflict) and 2) for God to keep both Ukrainian and Russian soldiers alive longer so they have more time to turn their wills to trust Jesus and be saved. The ‘Miracles in Ukraine’ report encouraged me God used my prayers, answering both requests!
“I’ve mentioned this parachute story at Christian academy where I substitute. During a tornado alert, I thought this story would help the students turn fear into trusting our all-powerful, loving God. So I told them this story about how God controlled the weather in Ukraine.
“One student exclaimed, ‘You changed history!’ … ”
The entire 50-year history of IFA can be summed up in the belief that God inspires us to pray the prayers He intends to answer. And then He shows us through the IFA platform that He has used us. Susan prayed a very specific prayer about the weather. Then, she read on IFApray.org how God answered. Can’t you just imagine the delight of the Father in making sure that Susan saw that her prayer was answered?
Please join IFA in Washington, D.C., to celebrate the moving of God through the lives and prayers of individuals to impact history. This prayer experience will be unlike any conference you have ever attended. Find out the details at IFA50.org.
Please post an answered prayer in the comments. Let’s encourage each other that God is working!
