Sammy Intercessory Prayer – Fasting & Prayer Day

Intercessory Prayer for Sammy

In life we go through hardships and challenges. While these challenges are designed to grow us, they can be mentally, physically and emotionally draining. Sammy, one of our MyGen Team leaders is in the midst of a challenge. He is starting a business, designed to marry sports and God, in a way that will reach the youth of this world.  Due to a necessary and untimely surgery, his focus has shifted from building and branding to being as healthy as he can be.

For the next 24 hours, we will pray ?? for Sammy, his business, and his health.  We will pray that in Sammy’s state of vulnerability, God can place the right business partners in his path to push his business forward and continue to make progress despite this setback. We will also ask God to provide the right, biblically sound, emotionally stable, mentally capable individuals in his camp to push him closer to God in the midst of his storm. We understand that the devil uses situations like this to shift our Focus from Kingdom-building and business-branding to Earthbound desires and lusts of the flesh (as referenced in last week’s prayer activity Galatians 5:19-21). By covering Sammy and every aspect of his life from his finances, to his house, to his mental and emotional state, and his spiritual growth, Sammy will be confident to know that his MyGen Family has his back.

Pray for Faith

To DO

  • Post on your social media:
    Today, I am immersed in intercessory prayer for my fellow ministry leader Sammy.
  • Continually pray for him and his family throughout the day.
  • If your schedule allows, call him to pray with him, or text him for special requests.
  • Listen to his needs and offer good counsel and Godly advice as the Holy Spirit leads you to.

Verses for Meditation

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints…Ephesians 6:18
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.1 Timothy 2: 1-5
Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved.Romans 10:1
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.James 5:14-15
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. Matthew 5:44
And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.Luke 22:31-32

About the Author

Hannah Love

While I am a born and raised Seventh-day Adventist (I was baptized at the age of 8, and then again at 21), I am not a product of Adventist Education. As a matter of fact, it is my public school education, both at DeWitt Clinton HS, and the University at Albany that has strengthened my relationship with. High School reignited my love for singing in choirs, and led me to join the Angelic Voices of Praise, the only gospel choir on campus. It was at corporate prayer before choir rehearsal one Thursday evening in Albany that my prayer life was brought under a microscope. You see, up until that point, I was praying these little Baby Prayers, the Patty Cake Prayers, the rehearsed Prayers, the One Liners. There wasn’t any conviction, and it almost appeared that I was afraid to talk to God in a very real way. That night a seasoned member saw something that I didn’t see in myself, and because she allowed the Holy Spirit to use her, took me to the back of the LC during corporate prayer and taught me how to pray. I mean Really Pray! That night not only changed my life, but changed my Prayer Life forever. My prayer life translated well as I served as a Pathfinder Leader and an Assistant AY Leader and Praise and Worship leader. It was my constant communication with God that allowed Him to use me to lead Teens and Young Adult closer to God, and many more into Praise and Worship. While I understand that our life experiences have differed, I believe that our God is the same. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He is the God that desires to have a deeper communication with us, who longs to chat with us, and craves quiet moments that we can offer as sacrifice to Him Do not for a moment think that I am perfect. In fact I am far from it. I mess up and mistakes, but my relationship with God is just as real as this letter you are reading. It is my relationship, and my prayer life, that restores me each and every time I fall. It is my prayer life with God that has allowed Him to use me for His work, and the furtherance of His Gospel! I charge each and everyone of you to explore a genuine and real relationship with God! Sit at His feet, talk to Him, worship him, Praise Him! Ask God to show Himself to you in a very “You Specific Way” Just in case you don’t know where to start, I encourage each and everyone of you who are able to join in with us on our Weekly Prayer and Fasts that meet each Wednesday. It is in these Fasts, that God reveals our character flaws to us, in hopes of not only correcting our Spiritual Cancers that seek to draw us away from God’s divine love, but pull us closer to the feet of Jesus! I pray that each and everyone of you experience God in a very real and “You Specific Way”. I Love you and God Loves you more!
