Do you ever have those times when you just feel like something is happening in you? Right now I feel like that. I am sensing a noticeable stirring inside of me for the past several weeks. Not every day, but in general. Particularly about the priviledge and blessing of worship (maybe more on that later) and a real desire for corporate prayer.
I have sensed the Spirit leading me to team up with a few others for prayer leading up to next weekend and through the whole 4 week series we will kick off on Easter. The series title is Relationship Rescue. Next week Andy will tell the story of the greatest relationship rescue ever and will clearly share the gospel for what we hope is the largest crowd we have ever seen on Sunday morning. Myself and a few others will be meeting up at the church office at 7:00am on Thursdays to pray. We have clear leading on what we’re praying for. The first and primary thing is for the freedom and powerful work of the Spirit in the hearts of those who come through our doors on Sunday morning. Naturally other things will flow out from there, but that is the focus and purpose of our time.
Our staff has also organized 48 hours of constant prayer leading up to our services on Easter morning. People are signing up for 30 minute time slots. Even throughout the night.
We have been seeing God reach people every week and hearing story after story of individuals who are opening their hearts to Him. Some for the first time. Others for the first time in a long time. This is what it’s all about! How could we sleep during a time like this? How could we fail to cry out to God in faith for miracles and true healing in our hearts! I know it is His own kindness that is drawing us. The best thing ever would be for Him to manifest himself among us and change us all. Thats why we pray!
