James’ Report from Liberia, Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Meeting for Prayer
Meeting for Prayer

On Tuesday James wrote:

When I woke up early this morning (Tuesday) at 3:45 am, there was only one thing on my heart, Prayer. I  meditated for awhile, then I got up a fews minutes after 4 and started praying. After prayer, I went back to bed. At 6:14 am, I was awakened by a call from a friend to inform me that our mutual friend, Dr.S, with whom I had supper with on Friday, was tested positive for the Ebola virus on Monday.

Dr. S., is now in isolation and receiving treatment. So, what does that mean for me and all the staff of the hospital he has been working with for the past month? I can tell you one thing, we are praying.

While the chance is remote that any of us might be at risk, because no one came in contact with any bodily fluid from him, we must face the reality that we came in contact with someone who has been tested positive for the virus.

“Let not your heart be troubled,” as you know, the Spirit of God is on me to be here. I am here to call His people to intercession. We need God to come to our aid and deliver us from this deadly disease.

Our government cannot help us. We need an intervention from on High. I will be connecting with more churches to mobilize an intercessory movement. There are four of us meeting three times a week at the New Gate Center to pray. On Wednesdays, Alfred joins us. Hilary, Douglas and Pastor Samuel are working with their churches doing the same thing.

It is our goal to recruit many more churches joining us to call upon God to come to our rescue.

We also need the Church in Canada to join us. More than anything right now, we need intercessors to pray for Liberia around the clock. 

  • Another month, without pay, has been added to the stay at home for civil servants.
  • There will be no schooling for kids this semester. Teachers can not take pay.
  • With nothing to do to provide for their families, many are asking for help. Tomorrow, I will be dropping off two bags of rice, one for Henry F. and the other for Ben-Jay.

We need your prayers, your fervent and persistent prayer. 

Seeking God’s intervention,

James
