Let me first share a few notes from an intercessory prayer viewpoint… The Lord has been impressing upon our hearts that as we (those with this assignment) are led by the Holy Spirit to pray, the Lord is using His Body on earth to cleanse the heavens of “ spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12). The Lord chooses the timing and extent of the effects of the prayers of His people. On the morning of June 19, the Lord spoke to my heart, “The shift of power has taken place in the heavenly realms. I now reign through you (those with this assignment) in that place.” One of our prayer team put it this way, “the protection in the heavenlies” of demonic activity in the area “has been removed by the Lord.”
Within an hour of this encouragement came an amazing confirmation from the Lord. Richard arrived home from a men’s breakfast with news he just happened to hear from another brother he brought home from the meeting. The word on the street was that the authorities had captured a major drug ‘kingpin’ in Los Cabos the day before, including closing the main ‘drug stores’ (supply houses). The brother went on to say that between what little was left on the streets and the fear of the authorities; you couldn’t even buy drugs in Los Cabos anymore. He further explained that you were previously able to just make a call and a delivery would be made to your house, but now most would fear even making such a call—not knowing who could answer.
The very next day, the news went public in the Mexico Daily News (online newspaper in English). We give thanks to God for every prayer warrior fighting for Los Cabos; may the Lord bless you richly. However, the nature of warfare is, “attack − counterattack,” so please don’t stop now!
