Matthew 21:22 And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”
…Noah’s wife? How bizarre! I have never even thought about who Noah’s wife was or if he even had one! But obviously, with three sons, he did! The bible never even states Mrs. Noah’s name, never describes her physical appearance, or her actual role in this incredulous God calling and experience. But, from the unimaginable task that was completed (the building of The Ark) one must assume powerful intense warfare and intercession was going on “Behind the Scenes”to produce a miracle of such magnitude.
I have my own “Behind the Scenes” vision of Mrs. Noah…. chosen as an anointed spirit and as a relentless prayer warrior whom spent her days out of sight, during this whole ordeal, on her knees crying out to God. Her prayers must have consisted of an innate mission-driven obedience, a weeping surrender in weakness, and heavily burdened intercession requesting God’s supernatural strength and guidance over Noah and her three sons.
Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing
I claim as well as she must have done…In The name of Yahweh, “THE POWER OF PRAYER BE RELEASED AND COVER US IN OUR CALLINGS AND MISSIONS FROM GOD! RECEIVE UNEXPLAINED WITNESSING AND ENDURANCE!” Amen
With my gift of exhortation and a calling to war in prayer, I have witnessed, and continue to do so, the power of intercession as light defeating darkness, healing miracles occuring, escape routes being given, and grace transforming hearts and minds. Powerful prayers of the righteous and obident become the divine connection from “earth to heaven and heaven to earth” bringing the much needed holy relief and The Peace of God with them.
For us to remain in a state of holy submission and heavily burdened intercession, as Mrs.Noah must have done, it requires us to turn our eyes to Jesus and to not focus on the gut wrenching depths of the circumstances we are praying over. We must accept His answers in full when they are received and surrender to the journey of the past and the one still to endure. One of the most difficult advancements in empowered prayer is to die to self (personal and emotional desires in the situation) so as not to block the light, resist His will, or to allow Satan in…..”Get behind me Satan”! The Power of Prayer is fully ignited in a spirit of doubtless wonderment and indisputable belief that God’s omnipotent power truly resides in us….
Romans 8:11 “The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you.”
Luke 27:18 But he said, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.”
In my own vision and depiction of Mrs. Noah, the reason we know nothing about her or her role in this story is that we don’t need to know…God knows! I choose to receive that statement as a biblical lesson in humbling my own motives in prayer. “Less of me, more of Him.” God sees me and that should be enough fame. I should be nameless and faceless when called to intercede so that The Glory is His and His alone! Amen
As it is written…..
Mathew 6:5 “When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.
