This morning I was SO happy to get a response from someone who tried last week’s prayer exercise detailed in last week's blog. Here is what the email said,
“Dear Gina, how powerful! To think that when I get that close to God, he sees Jesus in me. I have heard it before, but this exercise brought it home to me. Thank you so very much.”…
Those few words express a new found freedom and liberty in Christ by this child of God! Woooo hoooo!!! (i.e. Hallelujah!)
New found freedom in the Spirit through Christ is what Into the Waters Ministry is all about! Inspiring you to linger longer with God in prayer, resourcing you to draw nearer and know Christ! Come join the next session!
The next one to be held is on October 5th at 7pm. It is the 2nd “Worship-Prayer” session of the 4 being held. They are on the first Wednesday of the months of September to December. If you can’t make October, maybe you can make the first Wednesday of November or December. You just entered a busy season, some with kids starting school and for all… holidays coming, less day light and weather attacking our faces via wind, snow, and cold (boooooo). Many could use extended time with God to lift their spirits! Sign up here.
To get an idea of participant’s feedback in the September session, read the following. After the session, most took an on-line survey. Here are open comments they gave:
“I looked back over my notes as I journaled through the songs, letting the lyrics inspire my prayers. I realized all my notes read like a love letter, written from God to me! The session was such a blessing! Thank you!”
“I love "scripture songs"/scripture set to music ~ although I was not familiar with the ones played. I also appreciated your encouragement to fast - it definitely put me into a different mindset…”
“One particular song's lyrics that were played last night carried the same message the Lord has been putting on my heart the past few days. I was amazed and felt His presence. I was able to make the connection of "false expectations" to this particular circumstance in my life. It is very rare for me to take such focused, extended time in prayer and worship. I walked away feeling cleansed, renewed, and loved. Thank you.”
“…the song with the chorus - "I'm no longer a slave to fear, I am a child of God" paired with "Good, Good Father." ~ that ministered to me right when I needed that reassurance.”
“Thank you for last night, the Lord met me there…pouring out tears again in prayer listening to the “Let Go Now” song. I’m looking forward to next month. Our God is so good!”
Here is what survey participants said regarding the work of the Holy Spirit in the session,
Meditating on truths of God from His Word, under the influence of the Spirit of Christ, inviting His presence and being open to His work is the place for mind and soul renewal! God is good!
May this feedback and the comments on the testimony page (click to read them here), encourage you to attend! As noted earlier, please sign up! Signing up in advance helps me make sure the reserved room is sufficient to accommodate.
This is a traveling ministry, so coming into your church or ministry setting is a conversation I'd like to have with you! Visit this page to read more about doing a prayer session in your setting. And as always, if this ministry is a blessing to you, please consider making a small donation via the donation page! And finally, next week… a guest post! Blessings!

Hi my name is Gina; and I'm the founder of the ministry. My 25 year journey with God has been centered on immersing myself in the safe relationship God offers, learning about the power of surrender, and praying for His life in greater measure!
