I’m Back!

Hello All!

Forgive me for not being on this blog too much over the past few weeks. I wasn’t able to log on and had technical difficulties in doing so up until a few minutes ago!

But I think the Lord wanted me to have a break. Honestly, this blog has burnt me out at times… and that shows me that I am working in my own power and not in Jesus’ power. As Pastor Ed Taylor has said, “You may get tired in the ministry, but not tired of the ministry. Being burnt out is not from God.” Jesus knew that I needed a rest and to see this ministry not as a chore, but as an honor to do.

So, here I am. Please pray I would do these things in Jesus’ power, and wouldn’t– as horrible as it sounds– get tired of it. At the end of the day, it is a special thing to be able to know and understand what is going on around the world, and to lift up prayer for such things.

As always, thank you for your prayers and support!

In Christ,

Pray for Me!

Hi guys,

Without going too much into it, I have been dealing with a troublesome time lately. Some people know of it, but I think one can pray without knowing what is going on.

Watching a sermon on prayer, I read James 5:16:

“For this reason, confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous person is powerful in what it can achieve.”

James 5:16

Reading this, I am asking all of my followers, friends and family to pray for me as the Lord leads you. It means so much!

In Christ,

The Path I Have Walked

Have you ever wondered, walking down such a very long path, why you started walking that path in the first place? For some of us, it is a path of waiting. For others, it is a path of healing, or redemption.

We choose a path to take, and it changes us forever.

In the summer of 2014, I chose to make a blog about keeping 276 young kidnapped women, from Nigeria, in prayer. It has been an arduous path… a path full of tears, celebration, and many times, emotional apathy.

Yet I continue down this path. Even when I lose the emotional appeal of it, even when it feels more like a chore.

But Jesus has taught me SO MUCH through this path I have taken. He has softened my heart, opened my mind to what is happening all over the globe, and shown me a life that is bigger than myself.

Where is He taking me with this passion of mine? I haven’t a clue. All I know is that He still wants me on this path.

Please pray that I wouldn’t let burnout ruin such a beautiful thing Jesus is doing. Pray that I would continue on, in passion and in obedience, for these girls, and others like them. Thank you.

In Christ,

Considering It Pure Joy

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.”

(James 1:2-3, NIV)

The testing of my faith. I have seen it time and again: my broken heart or tortured mind falls into a million pieces, as I ask Jesus, “why?”

When We are Overwhelmed

Shootings. The murder of Gabby Petito. Natural diasters. Global terrorism.

I have been overwhelmed with how much pain is in this world, and have felt so ovewhelmed that I didn’t know what to write about… but I thought it would be best to just be honest.

I’m tired of writing about tragedies, yet that is what this blog has been based upon. I would be remiss if I didn’t speak about these things.

As I sit here typing, a Bible verse comes to mind:

“When I am afraid, I will trust in You.”

(Psalm 56:3)

When I am overwhelmed, I can come to my Savior, and recieve the rest and rejuvination I so desperately need. And that is what I encourage all of you to do today, as well. Amidst all the bad news, we have a God who has Good News for us: He sent His Son to die for our sins, so that those who believe could live with Him for eternity.

We have a refuge in this battle called life. And when we feel overwhelmed, we can run to Him.

Have a beautiful day.

In Christ,

A 2021 Post

Hey friends,
First and foremost, I want to thank you all for your support and prayers. Whether it’s over something personal, or something related to Nigeria and the Chibok girls, or anything in-between, knowing that you see these posts and pray mean the world.

Unfortunately, I usually find myself getting burnt out on writing about these things, especially when they are depressing in nature. I would be remiss if I didn’t do this, though. All too often, I come at writing for this blog from a purely “religious” standpoint– checking it off of my list of to-do’s and feeling like God Loves me more for writing and “being on top of things.” It sucks all of the passion and joy out of writing when I do so with such a motive.

I am learning, more and more, that Jesus wants, not my perfect behavior, or even my good works, but rather my heart. My love. This is what I hope to bring into 2021 as I continue to write for this blog.

Please keep me in your prayers as I seek to love and care for these people, both practically and spiritually. There may be some changes made to the blog, but I am not sure of that yet. I’ll be sure to update you all if any changes are made.

Again, thank you all for hearing my heart. I hope this beginning of 2021 comes well for you.

With Love, in Christ,
Annalee, ISAIAH 62 PRAYER MINISTRY
