Bible study on Intercessory prayers and mourning women
You have talents and gift and resources within you that can do serious damage to what is attempting to do I this world.
When the children of Israel were about to be taken in bondage to Babylon, the prophet Jeremiah said something like this, send for the mourning women. Find some women who are not so hateful and bitter that they have become like mannequins, woman who are not so downtrodden that they can no longer feel.
Send for some women who still have the ability to feel and cry so they might wail against what the devil is doing”
Get a picture of what these women were to do. They were to weep and wail, to mourn in sackcloth and ashes, to wake up everybody around them. They were call out, the devil is destroying us! Dealth is on its way! They were God’s warning shout to His people.
They were His alarm system, His tornado signal, his air-raid siren. They were the ones God were the one who created a platform from which Jeremiah’s words could ring out with stinging conviction.
These women had a God-given destiny to destroy the power of Satan over God’s people by walking them up and calling them to a mourning of repentance. These women were instructed to teach their daughters to weep against sin and the assault of the devil.
God has a destiny for women today-a destiny for you. He wants you women looses to open your mouth and cry out against the evil that the devil has put upon God people.
You have ideas that haven’t been voiced. You have energy that hasn’t been released. You have ability that hasn’t been exercise. You have power that hasn’t need loosed you have spiritual gifts that haven’t been given expression.
The day has come for you to forget those things that are past and look toward the future. It’s time to look at what you can be and what you can do and what you can say and what you can possess that will bring glory to God and defeat and fulfill your destiny.
