How One Woman’s Simple Obedience to Holy Spirit Ignited a Nationwide Prayer Movement by STEPHEN STRANG for Charisma News
Prayer and intercession have always been an integral part of Mary Colbert’s life. Before Trump was elected, she not only believed the prophetic words that Trump would be elected, but she boldly told others about it and prayed according to the prophecies. But she didn’t just believe because others had prophesied. She, too, received prophetic confirmations that the business mogul would become the United States’ next president.
That boldness led her to start a prayer movement via conference call that quickly spread across the nation. On my podcast, Colbert shares the story of how the prayer movement started. Before she felt the urgency to get others to pray, she was—as she puts it—”kind of cocky” about Trump’s future win.
“What happened that shifted everything with me was when … I had a dream,” she says. “And after the dream, I woke up the next morning and told [my husband], Don, ‘I had the strangest dream that I’m supposed to watch the Belmont Stakes horse race next week.’ I’m not a horse race person. I don’t watch. But it was so clear in the dream that God had a message for me.”
Colbert told her friends and family that God wanted her to watch the horse race that week—and then she forgot to do it! When she realized she missed the race, she rushed to her computer and did a search on the internet for the Belmont Stakes horse race.
The first thing she saw was “Creator Wins in Photo Finish,” she says. The horse Creator beat was called Destin.
“I knew God was trying to give me a message: ‘Mary, I’m going to do this,'” she says. “I was being very cocky with people. I was like, ‘No, no, you don’t understand. Donald Trump’s going to be the next president.’ So one morning, I was praying and I heard the Holy Spirit deep inside of me—not like a voice outside but deep inside—I heard Him say, ‘Now, Mary, I’m going to do what I said I was going to do, but if you think it doesn’t require your participation, you need to think again.'”
