Prayer Letter – January 2013

Written by Leon Vermeulen on . Posted in Prayer Letters

Dear Prayer Partners

I want to thank all of you that have faithfully prayed and interceded for Angus over the years but more particularly during the course of last year. The climax of last year was indeed the unique and sovereign visitation of the Holy Spirit in the form of a real and powerful mighty wind at the Feast of Tabernacles at Ein Gedi in Israel. A short clip of this incident is available on You Tube at A booklet and a DVD covering this incident are also available at CUM Books. I would like to encourage you to either view this miraculous event on YouTube or to purchase a copy at CUM. This will encourage you all the more to continue in prayer for Angus. This will also give credence to the fact that God hears our prayers. Not even the ‘mighty’ Paul could go without prayer. He encouraged the Ephesians to pray always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit. To stay alert in this with all perseverance and intercession for all the Saints and for him personally so that he may be given the ability to preach the mystery of the Gospel with boldness as an ambassador in chains.(Eph 6:18-20). Let us embrace this portion of scripture for the ensuing year and make it a reality in our service to all the saints as well as Angus.

I would like for us to unite in the following prayer for ourselves for the ensuing year:

Dear Heavenly Father we thank you for the privilege that we have to make our prayers and petitions known to you. We thank you for all the great things that happened last year and that we could pray into all these things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and in the power of the Holy Spirit. You have indeed done exceedingly abundantly, above all that we could ask or think through your Power that worked in Angus and us that prayed for him. Set us apart again Lord to fulfil the plans that you have for us in this ministry so that Your great name may be glorified. In Jesus’ name we pray so that our prayers may be heard and answered.’

It is a fact that the natural man becomes weaker as it grows older. Contrariwise the spiritual man grows stronger, aiming for full maturity to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. Let us therefore be vigilant and continue to pray for our brother’s physical strength not neglecting praying also for God’s grace to keep him spiritually strong and growing in grace.

Please pray fervently for the following important events:

25 January Shalom Trust Trustee Meeting: The Trustees are men of great wisdom and integrity, men of valour and fervent for the Lord’s work. Pray that they may continue to hear from the Lord in order to correctly give guidance to Angus.

8 February Michael House School: One of the top private schools in South Africa where some of our country’s most prominent men were taught. There are many of our future leaders in training at this facility. What an opportunity!

20 February Container Ministry: The name speaks for itself. Makeshift ministry, uplifting the poor and needy with the ability to raise up mighty men and women for God.

24 February North West University: Many of our Universities do not have a good reputation anymore. Let us pray for a revival at this place that it may set the scene for a great revival in all the Universities in our beloved country.

May the love of God overwhelm you.
