Support Raising at the 6AM's

So I'm sitting in the Prayer Room during a 6AM intercession set. In almost every Mon-Fri 6AM set, we pray for God to break-in in the marketplace. Many people working in the marketplace in Kansas City come to that set before they leave for work.

Now in this particular set, I was in the back of the room receiving ministry from the Healing Teams (I blew my wrist out playing too much this summer). Anyway, I was being soaked in prayer, listening to Marcus and Tim do what they do so well, and just receiving from the Lord when someone stood up at the mic to pray for the Marketplace people.

He said, and I quote, "Would everyone with jobs please stand up and move to the aisles."

I figured that the rest of us without jobs, were supposed to pray for these people with jobs, so I quietly walked up to one of the gentleman standing and said, "Hi, I'm an intercessory missionary, I don't have a job, but I couldn't help but notice that you do, would you consider supporting me $10.00 a month.... I'll pray for you!"

You know, I wouldn't have been able to resist that support raising plea if I'd been the person you were asking.

Thanks for reminding me what I should be doing more of.

Seriously, I would have emptied my wallet and given it to you.
Saying intercessory missionary isn't a job is almost as awful as saying people with marketplace jobs are less valid than intecessory missionaries.

Nice come back. Godly, and productive!
