Prayerful Thursday: Gail Blair

Today, we will be praying for a woman who is 66 years of old named Gail Blair. She is blind, and a follower of Jesus Christ. She has been persecuted for preaching the gospel. Before posting the article though, I have something that I’d like to disclose.

I am legally blind. However, I do not let this “disability,” limit me pertaining to the ministry that God has called me to. This is why you may not be able to tell that I’m blind, because of the way this blog has been formed. I am sure that with her being a Christian, she feels the same way. Perhaps, with her knowing that these people that she gives the Gospel of John to are sighted, perhaps she carries print booklets around with her so that they will be able to read them, knowing through whomever she is with that they are the Gospel of John. Then of course, who knows but her, the Lord, those she’s with, those she gives the pamphlets to, and maybe even the association that this article talks about. Now, I’d like to present to you the official article from Decision Magazine and I’ll be back afterward for the prayer points.

Prayer Points:

1. Pray for Gail. She needs even more boldness than ever before. The Bible records that Jesus “set His face like flint toward Jerusalem,” as the day of His ascension was approaching (Luke 9:51). Also, pray with the Apostles according to Acts 4:24-30.

2. Pray that God would release the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord like the frog plagues in Egypt everywhere in Rhode Island. May it be like a fire that only prayer can extinguish.

3. Pray for the members of the Memorial Library Association individually. Pray that they would come to know the Lord and His heart for people.

4. Pray that God would vindicate His own. Pray that everyone involved would know who they are truly persecuting and have a Damascus road experience (Acts 9).

5. Also, please pray for those people that threw the Gospel of John on the ground. Pray that they would come to know the Lord and have a relationship with Him for all eternity. Pray as the Spirit leads you. God bless!

My name is Patelin Cogswell. I was born on September 24, 1998. I was born in Oklahoma City. I went to Oklahoma School for the Blind and graduated in 2017. I am called as a Minister of the Gospel and an Intercessor. However, this is not about me. My life is dedicated to making Christ alone. This blog was called kingdomadvance.family.blog because I didn’t want my name on the blog like others do because I feel like it is not me living but Christ living through me.
