Pray for the “Nets” – A Prayer Directive
As I was meditating on John 21, I heard the Lord say, “I have a prayer directive for the intercessors.” In this chapter of the Bible, the disciples were keenly aware of their failure when they had scattered from Jesus when He went to the cross. In the midst of that, Peter had an idea – fishing. The only problem was that they caught no fish.
Then Jesus appeared, although they did not know it was Him yet, and asked, “Did you catch any fish?”
They answered, “No, we haven’t.”
Jesus told them, “Cast your net on the other side of the boat.” This time, they caught a huge number of fish. John 21:11 makes the point that although there were 153 fish, the net did not break.
The Lord spoke to me and said, “Tell my intercessors to pray that the nets will not break in these days of awakening.”
Many pockets of revival have sprung forth across the United States and the world. It is exciting to see the harvest, the great catch of fish, coming in. However, if the nets, or the “networking” of people is not strong, some of the harvest may be lost.
We need to pray for a strong “network” of people to come together. This is true not only in individual churches, but in territories, as well. Many churches are in great need of a “network” of those who will be committed to the behind the scenes ministry of helps. People need to be trained up to minister deliverance to the new ones coming in. Others need to be willing to take new believers and spend time discipling them. Unselfishness and complete commitment to the Lord will be necessary in order to see the harvest retained.

Walking in love towards one another will be increasingly important in the days to come. Strife and division may put holes in the nets and allow the “fish” to fall through. We must guard against these “network breakers.” Offense and bitterness must be carefully guarded against. The harvest is at stake.
We need to pray that the Lord would do a great work in those that are already believers. We need the fire of God to bring a boldness into our lives that will cause us to stand in the darkness and speak the Word of God and to not back down. We as individuals must be strong for the net to be strong.
The good news is that the Lord will have a strong net to retain the harvest in the days to come. John 21:11 assures us that the net did not break. God will have a people in these days of awakening that will be completely sold out to the plans of God. They will be strong and join with others for the harvest’s sake. I want to be one of them. I urge you to join me.
A WORD FOR YOU TODAY!
A word by Joel Yount:
Several years ago while walking at a park an Eagle had flown right over me carrying what looked like a dead snake. The one thing that amazed me was how low the Eagle was flying as it flew above me. It was as if God was highlighting this occurrence that I had never experienced before.
Before seeing the Eagle and the snake, I had been walking around the park praying and declaring scriptures for breakthrough regarding a situation. Leading up to this time, it seemed as if there was an escalated season of attack from the enemy as someone had attempted to shut the Spirit Fuel website down. However, God stepped in and the individual responsible for that attempt did not succeed. Praise God!
Pay Attention To Signs God Reveals To You
God had stepped in many ways in only he could do. The escalated attacks had ceased. The Lord revealed to me that the Eagle had represented His power and protection coming down and taking the enemy (the snake) out of his place.
The Lord instructed me to send this testimony out today because He wants to remind many of you that nothing is hard for Him. He will send signs in the natural that relate to what is going on in the supernatural.
The prayers and declarations of saying scripture out loud at the park had activated something in the Spirit realm I believe. One important action I had taken before this event was sowing several seeds into different ministries. This act stretched my faith. When I saw what God did and how he turned the enemy’s plans upside down I was amazed. God is turning the enemy’s plans upside down in your own life today! Do something in the natural to activate the supernatural in your life today.
Right now I encourage you to sow a seed of $50, $25, $100, or $500 into Spirit Fuel and name it “Breakthrough” as an act of faith. By sowing a seed today into Spirit Fuel, you will be helping to reach more people on the internet for the Kingdom of God. It takes a dedicated team and resources to maintain the Spirit Fuel platform.
