Pastor Richard Mansfield from New Beginnings Church in Albuquerque New Mexico used two perfect words for his view about the Christians Covering America Prayer Chain – that described my feelings, as well for the event that occurred on May 24, 2016 at Tingley Beach in Albuquerque. He used the words IMPRESSED & IMPACTED. I can relate to these words and why he said them.
I too was impressed by the event that our Father God orchestrated and sent our precious sister Dr. Marian Marie Stewart, Truth Road Ministries, to organize in the city of Albuquerque NM.
When I use the word “organized” I mean it. From the moment of arriving all the way to the proceeding of the event – everything was done precisely and according to the vision that Dr. Stewart had received from God. If nothing else would prove this event did indeed come from the Holy Spirit – the detail and conciseness would have been enough.
Our God is a God of order not chaos and I believe He is also a God that doesn’t waste His children’s time. The Prayer Chain began at EXACTLY 9a.m. and ending in exactly 20 minutes. But what an incredible 20 minutes.
IMPACTED was how Pastor Richard described it. I too was impacted by the fact that no one person was the center of attention or took the center stage. There were MANY Pastors and ministry leaders that were there to do one thing and one thing only – PRAY!
To symbolize the event Dr. Stewart was dressed as the unrepentant Bride of Christ in a soiled and tattered wedding dress while April Rubio was dressed in a clean and perfect beautiful white dress representing the repentant Bride – the Church.
Dr. Stewart led in directing us when it was to time to pray for each of the various ordered points. The key points to pray about were: 1. Church Leadership. 2. The Body of Christ. 3. The City of Albuquerque & Surrounding Areas. Between each point, the Shofars were blown and then at the very end there was 1 minute of “Thunderous, Roaring, Booming, Loud, Joyful Noise of Victory Unto the Lord” as the event program stated.
At this point the actual Prayer Chain Event was over. Those that needed to leave could and those that wanted to stay were invited to continue their fellowship by the river. Many stayed. I got the sense that no one really wanted to leave. As we gathered by the Rio Grande in the Bosque, several people spoke including Pastor Bill Ruhl from Global Destiny Ministries, David Bearshield who is the Native American Prayer Ambassador who also led the Native Americans present to anoint the river, Barbara Gould Emmanuel Ministries Int., and of course Dr. Marian Stewart.
To sum it up – The HOLY SPIRIT was indeed present and God the Father and Our Savior were glorified at the Bosque in Albuquerque NM on May 24, 2016. The cries of His children for repentance for this state and country and what both have become – were heard loud and strong.
It was an honor to be there representing The HUB of New Mexico. It was an honor to stand with my brothers and sisters in Christ and praying in the spirit of 2 Chronicles 7: 14, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
May God have mercy on us and I pray that He was blessed and pleased with the cries of His children on May 24, 2016 – a day I know I WILL NEVER FORGET!
