God Gives the Answer to Prayer
Doing the workshop with the banners was an experience that changed my life. I experienced the manifest presence of God on 3 separate occasions throughout the day.
The first experience came when we were worshipping with the banners as a group in the “War House̵. At one point during the worship there was a fragrance that seemed to pass by from my left side and would disappear on my right side.
Then the same fragrance would come back and pass by me again. This happened three times during that time of worship. I could not tell what that fragrance was, but I had a growing sense of pleasure at being able to worship in a new way knowing that it released the fragrance of Jesus into the air. I knew we had an open heaven at that moment.
During the course of the day there was a time of personal ministry when God began to release people from bondages that had stopped them walking in the call that they had on their lives. I was standing at the altar helping with the ministry and the Lord showed me very clearly a past event in my life that was still affecting me. I had been praying that the Lord would reveal this area to me as I know that I needed healing and as we prayed and ministered with the banners He showed me the cause of the problem and He provided the answer.
At the end of the workshop a blessing was being released over the group and we were encouraged to reach up and claim our blessing. I knew I had to do more than just reach up; I had to stand and claim it. At first I felt funny to be the only one standing and everyone else was sitting down but the Lord gently encouraged me again to stand and claim my blessing. My chest felt like it was pounding but as I stood up and claimed what God wanted to give me, I felt His Presence surround me in a very tangible way.
It was an exciting day and a day that I will never forget.
Thanks again and I can't wait to do the workshop again and see what God has in store for us.
