When we pray, often the Lord gives a sense of direction. To follow His direction brings wisdom and answers. This may come in the form of a scripture, a picture, or a phrase. We have found that the blessing is found when we follow Him.
My name is Holly Baillie. Edgar was my late husband, a truly great man of God (I could go on all day about him!) He was an evangelist that traveled all over the world winning souls. I am more of a teacher and preacher, sometimes labeled ‘prophet’ because I hear from the Lord. I have been ministering since 1989. Yes, I’m kinda old (smile…). I was ministering when I met Edgar, and felt led to continue ministering after his death, though he has moved on. I also have a strong business and I/T background, as I worked for (and contracted to) Fortune 500 companies for many years (yes, while ministering – I’m not THAT old). For fun stuff, I like writing, camping, anything outdoors (well, most anything), and am trying to learn how to cook healthy (can’t say that it’s fun, but I’m trying).
We love to partner with businesses that serve the Lord; that see themselves as a ministry as well as a business: a business with purpose. One CEO with whom we partner started his company after telling the Lord that he desired to fund the gospel all over the world. How could God NOT bless that?!! Now, your purpose may be different from that, but if God has put you in business, there is a purpose in the earth for His Kingdom. Our job would be to help you on the spiritual end of things.
When we partner with a company, we would first and foremost pray for that company on a regular basis, listening to the Lord for any direction He may give. Often, the leader will give us a few prayer requests that we can focus on; such as sales, a problem to be solved, or employee issues. We take these specifically to prayer. Throughout the month, we will make a log of anything that we may feel the Lord is saying. This is just for consideration, to be weighed with wisdom. A picture from the Lord may be very specific, or sometimes may mean more than one thing, so we submit it to the leader(s) as something to be considered as a possibility. I personally believe the prayer part is even more important that the prophetic works. Prophetic direction is wonderful to have, but prayer gets things done.
