God be with us! | 7-10-2020

Father, we lay before you the next two months and beyond, as You have opened doors to the Heartland of America.  We pray you would open the hearts, and ears to the people of the Heartland.  Fill and empower Mike MacIntosh with Your Holy Spirit and may You move mightily.  
 
We pray for the technical side of these outreaches. That You would stop the enemy in his tracks, and place Your hand of protection over every element involved.  We anticipate with ready and prayerful hearts the miracles You want to do!  And today — we lift up the first event of the Outreach in Madison, Wisconsin.
