April 2020 Email Archive – Could Your Faith Use Wings Right Now?
If Jesus would show up right now and place his hands on you or your loved one and say, “Daughter. Son. You are healed,” your life would never be the same. You would know that God’s kingdom really had come to earth.
I know that you know how much healing would mean right now. For you, your loved one, and so many around you.
Even before coronavirus, 6 out of 10 people in the U.S. were in need of healing from chronic illness, and 1 out of 3 globally were. And now, the need for the kind of healing only God can do has just become even more obvious and urgent.
I invite you to join me in part of what God is doing to pour out healing in our time, by the power of his Holy Spirit. I believe that we have never seen anything like what God is preparing to do in and through his church and in the world–but we have a part in it. He is inviting us to join him in it.
God led me to write a book called Faith with Wings—published just days ago in paperback and ebook—that is a spiritual tool to prepare and position hearts toward him, in order to receive what we need from God for the work that I believe he is inviting us into.
One Christian brother, Greg Allen, read an early manuscript of Faith with Wings and has already told me he’ll be gathering his friends to have a (virtual) small group discussion about Faith with Wings. You can see some of his comments about the book here.
I am eagerly anticipating what God is about to do in and for the world he loves. I don’t want to miss out on cooperating with him in any of what he has designed me to do—and I don’t want you to miss out, either. I invite you to use this book as a tool to prepare.
I invite you to order the book today.
I also invite you to share this link with friends…
I’ve made a Free Starter Kit available at my website, at amylu-riley.com/faith-with-wings. The Free Starter Kit includes the first 3 chapters of the book Faith with Wings, plus discussion questions. Will you please share the link with your friends so they can get those free sample chapters?
…and to discuss the book with your friends.
Would you consider inviting some friends to read Faith with Wings along with you and chat about the discussion questions with you? (The book has discussion questions in the back for every chapter; and the Free Starter Kit includes the discussion questions for the first three chapters, so you can get started reading and discussing it right away.) All kinds of options are available for virtual discussions: group text, group email, video chat, conference call, private Facebook group, and phone calls. It’s as easy as forwarding this message to some friends and asking if they’d like to join you.
An Important At-Home Spiritual Practice
Why It’s Important to Take Communion at Home: A Practical Guide is a brand-new blog post with practical, Scripture-based information on how and why to take communion at home frequently in this season. God has really been emphasizing to me for the past 2 weeks the need to share information about taking communion at home, thus this second blog post on the topic in as many weeks.
This is a short, step-by-step post that I hope many Christ-followers will use as a resource for taking communion at home. Communion is a life-giving practice for a number of reasons. Since I’ve been taking communion at home, I can honestly say that the life in this spiritual practice is noticeable. I hope you will check out the blog post and make communion a regular part of your at-home spiritual practices.
I hope you will order your copy of Faith with Wings, share the link with friends so they can get the Free Starter Kit at amylu-riley.com/faith-with-wings, and invite friends to join you in reading and discussing the book.
Join me as we prepare to be used by God in ways that he foresaw long ago would be needed now.
God’s Kingdom, come. God’s will, be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
P.S. If you need prayer, please reply to this email and let me know.
