Yehoshvah Prayer Team Mission Statement

“God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands” – Acts 17:24
Why is this our mission statement?
A church is not a building. No, not even the flesh and blood persons occupying the pews. It is a communion of souls whose true home is our Father’s kingdom of heaven. This is the true congregation of any church. Given the true congregation is a communion of souls, when each of us commits to prayer we are gathered “in the spirit”. It is not the internet or telephone or post office that binds us but, the work of the Holy Spirit.
A clear and PRIMARY FOCUS on this understanding is what makes the our prayer team different from any other prayer team or ministry. We never pray alone. As a spiritual exercise, whenever you respond to a prayer request here it is central that you are aware of our souls in direct communication in that temple not “made with hands’. You should actually feel the presence of the other members of the team as if they were in the same room with you.
The name “Yehoshvah” means “The Lord is my salvation”. In Christianity it represents the saving grace of the Father proceeding from the Son through the action of the Holy Spirit. Understanding the action of the Holy Spirit in covering our prayer requests is key to understanding how our small prayer team works. This is of course true of any prayer team but, we are different because we strive to have a full understanding and awareness.
This prayer team was founded in 2009 by Kate Wells, Luke Gonzalez, Cindy Gialluca, Lesli Jackson, A. J. Godigkeit, Chad Tipps, Bret Major, Mark Moorman, David Lee, Jeff Luftig, Shelley Creaser and Gerald Butts. We are Bible based Conservative Christians. We do not engage in debates about party politics or denominational theology as they distract from the knowledge and devotion to the Messiah.
