From Chairman Simeon Strauser:
The importance of walking in the encouragement of our fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord, is given to every believer for the strengthening of the body. Hebrews 10:24-25 states; ‘And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near’.
Amidst the epicenter of the US COVID-19 outbreak, God makes available the opening of a new FG prayer center ministry. Waves of Glory director, Pastor Mary Ellen Gordon reports that the long-awaited ‘Healing Prayer and Conference Center’ has secured the facilities in Suite 640 of the aptly-named Gateway Building located at 3556 Lakeshore Road in Blasdell, NY.
Pastor Gordon writes, “It has been over ten years since the Lord spoke to me about opening a center here in Western NY, where He said ‘ones would come from the North, South, East and West, and enter in with all manner of sickness and disease and leave completely well’. This prayer center is an expansion of the ‘Here Comes a Miracle’ radio ministry that has been airing for five years now on station WDOE”. Future plans are to include Miracle Explosions conferences in the Gateway Auditorium.
As of May 11, the Waves of Glory Healing Prayer Center is ready to open its doors as soon as NY-state-wide COVID restrictions have been lifted. In this season of waiting, Pastor Mary Ellen encourages the Body to come together in doing two things:
#1 – Stand on (and claim) every promise God makes in His Word to be with you; to help you and to bless you beginning with Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
#2 – Look for every opportunity to sow during this time of famine. Ask God to show you creative ways to sow seeds into your family, neighbors, friends, your Church and the Ministries you love and appreciate. Pastor Gordon writes, ‘Your words are seeds. Prayers are seeds. Thoughts are seeds. Good deeds and personal gestures of love are seeds. Your time, talents and resources are precious seeds that God can use to bless others… and advance His Kingdom. If you look at this pandemic in our world today, the natural thing to do is to hold back, sit back, and just play it safe. We need to focus on the fact that the worst of times can be one of the best times to obediently sow every seed God has given you’.
