Periscope Prayers: Over the Rainbow

While we are in intercession, God is taking care of everything. There’s not one thing God isn’t doing. It’s incredible when you realize how detailed the Kingdom of God is, how exact. Right now, God is watching your street, whatever country you’re in, your neighborhood, your bills, whatever it is, God is watching!  

I had a surprise bill hit me this afternoon, and when I looked, God had the money right there! Everything was provided for. There was no fretting, because God had prepared for everything. God watches over you. He knows you. He knows every detail of your life. He’s watching every single area.   

“Father, we ask You now Lord, to take us in that realm of faith where we can believe for the impossible to occur. Lord, show us how great Your ways are! Take us beyond the rainbow, Lord. Take us into the wonderful experience of knowing You and the power of Your promises. It is so beautiful to serve You, God!”

The following lyrics to “Over the Rainbow” were written in 1938 by Yip Harburg, a Russian Jewish immigrant to New York, on the verge of the imminent Holocaust. Many have now realized how profoundly prophetic his lyrics really were:  

“Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high

There’s a land that I heard of once, in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue

And the dreams that you dare to dream, really do come true

Someday I’ll wish upon a star

And wake up where the clouds are far

Behind me

Where troubles melt like lemon drops

Away above the chimney tops

That’s where you’ll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly

Birds fly over the rainbow

Why then, oh, why can’t I?

If happy little bluebirds fly

Beyond the rainbow

Why, oh, why, can’t I?”

“Jesus, we love You, Lord because we know, somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue! Give us faith for the difficulties we’re going through. Give us faith to see beyond this, to see beyond what is occurring. We love You so much. 
“There is nothing like Your presence, God. You will find us! You put the rainbows in the sky. They are Your promise that you will never lie, lead us astray, or hurt us. Show us how to walk perfectly in line with Your ways. There is such perfection we find in You, Lord.” 

Sent in love,
