“”Arise, cry out in the night, at the beginning of the night watches! Pour out your heart like water before the presence of the Lord! Lift your hands to him for the lives of your children, who faint for hunger at the head of every street.””
Lamentations 2:19 ESV
I came across this scripture back in 2015, and I took it to heart. I began praying every night for hours and hours asking for God to help the children in the Arizona foster care system and those that were abused and taken into captivity by sex traffickers and other evils.
I prayed for every kid that I heard about and all those that I would never meet or know anything about. I prayed for their parents, their teachers, their futures, their safety, their dreams, their hearts and their souls. I prayed so much that God finally came and spoke to me to answer some of my prayers in my hearing.
He told me that all of my prayers had risen up and filled His bowl. He told me that I know longer needed to fear or fight this battle for the children alone, because He was arousing Himself and coming out to put an end to the things that were happening. He said that I would soon look up and there would be no more wickedness. He even assigned Angels that day to help me. He said that whatever I wanted to do and had been trying to do, but had been denied or blocked, would no longer be hindering me.
It was the greatest news that I ever received! I couldn’t wait to see how many kids would be saved and how much good would begin to happen in my state and nation.
