This is a letter we shared with our monthly partners concerning prayer cloths. We wanted to make sure all our partners had the opportunity to get a prayer cloth before making it available to all our readers. Now that we have done that, we would like to share the same letter with you – if you would like to participate and receive a prayer cloth, the information is below.
April Partner Letter:
I have had something on my heart for a few weeks, perhaps months now, concerning prayer cloths. While many of you are aware and some of you have participated with us, I am involved with a ministry called the Healing Prayer Call.
This ministry consists of several men and a couple women from different parts of the world who have a heart to see people healed and made whole by the power of God. We all believe He sent his word and healed us. We all believe that healing is for today and did NOT pass away with the disciples. We are all in unity and agreement concerning healing.
Each Monday night we host a Healing Prayer Call meeting which includes teaching and praying for the sick. However, many people are busy and on different time zones and therefore are not able to join us. And many people need a point of contact for their healing or restoration or financial miracle, whatever it is they believe God for.
I have thought about this quite often and I wanted to make sure all our partners, who wanted to, could take part of the anointing on the lives of these powerful men and women of God. Therefore I had a plan.
A couple months ago I prepared prayer cloths and I sent them to the first minister on the Healing Prayer Call and asked him to pray over them. I asked him to send them on to the next person when he was finished. We have ALL prayed over them. Finally they made it back to me after much prayer and anointing.
This month, as you sow your seed, if you would like a prayer cloth, I would love to send you one. Just let me know when you sow your monthly donation that you would like a prayer cloth. These have not only been prayed over for healing but for financial prosperity and for restoration, whatever it is you are standing in faith for.
We know there is no power in the prayer cloth itself – the power is in the anointing and the word of God – the prayer cloth is simply a point of contact between you and God and us, who are standing in faith with you. We have seen MANY miracles through prayer cloths, as did the Apostle Paul.
The anointing oil is used as a point of contact to help a person release his or her faith. We see this in James 5:14-15 NKJV: “Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up.” Use of the oil is symbolic of our dependence on God. The important thing when you are anointed with oil is to release your faith to God for your healing.
Like anointing oil, a prayer cloth can be used as a point of contact to release faith for healing. The Apostle Paul sometimes made use of prayer cloths. We see this in Acts 19:12 NKJV: “Even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.” Again, the important thing is to release your faith and know we are all in agreement with you for a miracle.
I think I have shared this before, but it bears repeating. I have an uncle who was diagnosed with cancer several years ago. He was told there was no hope. My mom gave him a prayer cloth and he received the prayer cloth and released his faith in God as his healer, he is still alive today. He works every day and has a smile on his face constantly. That prayer cloth is still in his wallet, worn and torn but still his point on contact.
Finally, I have to also share with you about the day the prayer cloths arrived back to me. I was sitting at my home, answering some emails, when the doorbell rang. I got up, walked to the door and opened it to find the FedEx man there with a package. He handed it to me and when he did I felt a strong anointing on it. I thought ‘oh my, what is this?’ I looked down to see it was the prayer cloths from the last person who prayed over them. I KNOW there is a strong anointing on these cloths and the prayers that went into them and because I FELT a powerful anointing on these cloths and I am expecting to hear testimonies as you release your faith.
These are for our partners FIRST – if we have any left, I will offer them to our readers but I want our faithful partners to have first choice to receive these anointed prayer cloths. Whatever you are believing for…this could be your point of contact.
When you send your donation, make sure to put PRAYER CLOTH in the note line, and we will mail one out to you. We can only send one to each partner because we have a limited amount, thank you for understanding. Also, if you have already sent your donation for this month, and you would like a prayer cloth, simply email Breanne and let her know. Her email is email@example.com. We want you to have one of these in your hand, in your wallet, in your home or wherever you need it to be. We want you to know we are praying with you and standing firm with you.
As always…thank you for being a part of this ministry…we love you and pray for you! May God continue to bless you and all you set your hand to.
My Point of Contact!
Just as I shared about the prayer cloths, there is one more thing I want to do with our faithful partners this month that will give ME a point of contact.
This was actually Breanne’s idea, therefore I must give her the credit. If you have a prayer request, please email her your prayer request, making it as brief as possible. We are going to create a notebook that I can hold in my hands as I pray over your need…just as the prayer cloth will be your point of contact, this written prayer, placed in a notebook will be my point of contact with you.
We will pray over these requests each week. As you see your prayer answered, please send us a testimony so that we can take your written request from the Prayer Notebook and move it to the TESTIMONY NOTEBOOK! I am excited about what God is doing for us, the ministry of A New Thing Ministries, that includes you. This will be our first Book of Remembrance. We will keep them to pray over and remember all the wonderful things our God has done.
You may send your prayer request to: firstname.lastname@example.org
