Today we prayed and it was good.
I didn’t enjoy the extra early alarm. I didn’t enjoy the thought of fasting. However, I did enjoy standing with about a dozen others at the Centre from 7am and praying.
It’s good to pray. And we prayed! We lifted our voices to God on behalf of others who may be struggling to lift their own voices to God. We prayed for healing, for miracles, for breakthroughs. We prayed because we are fed up with seeing so many people being sick.
We spoke life over them.
We declared the victory of the cross over them.
We rebuked the enemy and negative words that may have been spoken over them.
We stopped focusing on ourselves and focused on others.
I believe in the power of prayer. I believe in faith that there is power in the name of Jesus. I am believing to see lives made whole. I believe that the sacrifice and inconvenience is worth the effort.
Of course, we can pray whenever we want to. We can access God all the time but there’s something about joining with others and simply agreeing together to see God move in another persons life and situation.
Why don’t you join us next Thursday at the Xcel Centre between 7-8am. It would be great to see you there.
