Father travels with Holy Spirit to pray for son

Stories to Inspire

It is my happy conviction that God has opened up a great ‘door’ of revelation to help transport us into our rightful and Biblical place ‘in the Heavenlies’… not merely as a theology, but as an experiential reality.  Plenty could be said to validate that truth in Scripture… but I suggest that you read some of my past blog posts, here.

A new level of liberation is taking place.  We are getting freed up from being merely ‘terra-firm-ites’… earthlings.  Our greater reality is our Heavenly likeness, Heavenly location, Heavenly citizenship, etc.  Check this out!  Stupendous! 

See yourselves co-raised with Christ!  Now ponder with persuasion the consequence of your co-inclusion in him.  Relocate yourselves mentally!  Engage your thoughts with throne room realities where you are co-seated with Christ in the executive authority of God’s right hand. – Col 3:1 Mirror Bible Translation

My confidence is that as we learn to “live and move and have our being” IN Him and IN the Heavenlies, we will find our 1) spirit man acknowledged and liberated… our 2) soul man inspired and empowered… and our 3) body experiencing super-natural things we never ever imagined… not to mention, being 4) more effective as men and women of God

Just one of those avenues leading toward more effectiveness will be in prayer.  As we find our place in the Heavens, we’ll not posture or perceive ourselves as weak plaintiff humans, but rather, as righteous and highly favored sons who are actually partnering with God in co-rulership.  Think of it: not praying TO God… but WITH God. 

Try it out sometime… like my good friend did.  I’ll keep him anonymous in the following story.

Father travels with Holy Spirit to pray for son

Recently I got a phone call from a very good and longtime friend.  He’s heard some of the stories of our Ascended Life Community experiences. 

Years ago one of his adult sons separated himself from family and friends.  Internal struggles led him to drug addiction, homelessness, and living on the street in his car.  No phone, no address and a drifting lifestyle made it impossible to be contacted.  So, the last time my friend was able to talk with his son was nearly 2 ½ years ago. 

A few days ago, my friend’s heart was especially moved with compassion and tender care for his son.  In prayer, he said, “I’m going to do that thing that Mark does where he goes with the Holy Spirit to the place where he is praying for… and then he prays in that place.”  So in prayer, my friend activated his mind and heart to go with Holy Spirit to his son.  After engaging in this mode for a time, he fell asleep… and woke up later, without experiencing anything unusual.

But, a couple of days later he received a phone call and the operator asked if he would accept a collect call from his son.  Of course, he said, “Yes.”  My friend, his wife and their son had a cordial conversation.  It was a relief to their hearts to hear in his voice that he was doing better than the last time they had talked with him. 

I have followed this story with my friend and prayed into this story for many years.  So when he called to tell me the latest in his story, my tears quickly flowed.  My father heart joined with his father-heart as we both rejoiced that they had at least talked… but we still felt the pain of his son’s separation and brokenness.  Your prayers are appreciated. 

By the way: He attributes the call from his son to a more effective way of praying for his son.
