MLM Adopt A Hospital

The numbers of COVID-19 cases has dropped dramatically over the last month. Of course, it has helped that our city is wearing masks and limiting large gatherings, but this has been a spiritual battle from the very beginning.

 

Mark Lugo, with Mark Lugo Ministries, has led the charge spiritually in our community by launching an initiative called “Adopt a Hospital”. He has recruited intercessors to pray, declare and decree on location at every hospital in our city. Of course, others have been praying against the pandemic across the city and we recognize them as well.

 

This is the real reason the numbers are dropping. Mark and his team are winning the war in the heavenlies. Not only have the numbers dropped, lives have literally been saved. See the video for these testimonies.

 

The initiative has now gone national as other cities have contacted Mark to ask how they can launch this initiative in their community.

PraySA event sees 200,000 called to prayer.

Recent PraySA event draws more than 200,000 to cry out to God The title is not a misprint. More than 200,000 people attended the recent PraySA events held in-person and online in San Antonio, Texas. MORE THAN TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND! God is up to something big in our city.

 

The Beacon had the opportunity to interview one of organization’s leaders, Tammy Watts, about the calling behind PraySA, testimonies from the event and what’s coming next. Watch the video for this exclusive interview.

 

PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. Ask for an expectant Spirit to greet you every morning. And watch for a supernatural move of God in our community.

 

PraySA Event Background. Multiple churches and ministries joined together to host a good, old-fashioned, city-wide prayer meeting this past August 9th and 16th at the Freeman Coliseum on the east side of our city. With the pandemic, racial strife, violent protests happening around the country and division around the election; the leadership echoed what many of us are feeling… enough is enough… it’s time to pray!

 

Based on the foundation of 2 Chronicles 7:14, this historic gathering united thousands who joined together to humble themselves, repent and cry out to God to heal our land. Our country’s current circumstances reveal a great brokenness and divide. We are desperate. We need prayer. The repentance witnessed at this unprecedented event was real. The Lord heard our prayers. Now we wait on Him to do what only He can do. Stay tuned!

 


 

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!!! I just had a wild encounter with Jesus and I don’t want anyone left behind!!! 😭💔

Check Your Oil

He is coming for His bride. Yes, the day and the hour is unknown. But the signs in scripture are all around us. If He came today, are you ready? In the parable of the ten virgins (Matthew 25:1-10), Jesus warns us to always be ready for His return. It is easy to let the cares of this world cause us to fall asleep and allow our lamps to run out of oil. Wake up Church. He is coming soon.

 


The spiritual response to racism

You see many different reactions in our city and across the country to the recent death of George Floyd. This alarming event certainly demands some kind of response, but how can the church, and we as believers, take the lead by responding from a spiritual perspective? Before we jump on any bandwagons or comment on social media, we should look to scripture and apply a biblical response in our comments and in our actions.
 

So, what is a biblical response to this horrendous event? The Beacon recently found this sermon from Pastor Tony Evans that we believe offers a biblical and spiritual perspective to recent events. Pastor Evans is clearly led by the Holy Spirit as he shares from God’s word. He will tell you that the answer to racism is pretty simple.
 

It is a little long, but we hope you will set aside some time to listen and apply what you hear in the coming days and weeks. In fact, we believe this should be our lifestyle as followers of Christ. There is simply too much at stake.
 

We welcome your comments. Please let us know what you think.
