Thoughts from Pastor Lorne
Thank you to everyone who is finding regular time to pray together for our City, God’s heart for our city and our response to God’s heart for our city.
At Monday night prayer we had someone bring a map of our city to prayer over. That was SO helpful. We laid hands on the map. We then lifted the areas of government, spiritual leaders/pastors & their family’s in our city and Kingdom Come.
We asked the LORD how he wants us specifically to “LOVE OUR CITY” …December we will do something with a charity downtown. Which one LORD?
For me I have found an incredible new awakened sense of “Delight in Prayer” …REALLY deep for me.
That the solutions for our city and our nation are found in prayer. Since prayer is the primary means by which we maintain our relationship is established and maintained with the Lord. We could likely say that our relationship with the Lord may only be as strong as our intimacy with Him in prayer. Or Our relationship with the Lord, is as good as our prayer life.
Samuel makes a profound statement in 1 Sam.12:23 “As for me, I will certainly not sin against the Lord by ending my prayers for you”. One version “Ceasing to pray for you”
Truth is our spiritual life can only ever rise to the level of our prayer life. It would be the same with our Church corporately as well.
The term “prayerlessness” strikes me this season. We could likely define that as “Praying less that the Father desires or less than required”.
Prayerlessness restricts the purposes of God. Prayer is irreplaceable . NOTHING can take the place of personal prayer in our world. Prayer is the arena of the over-comer.
Prayer is a delight to the Father. Pr. 15:8 “The prayer of the upright is HIS delight”. I am finding this is my delight as well.
Oswald Chambers says “Prayer does not fit us for the greater works; prayer is the greater work”
Thank you for subscribing to support our 6 months of unified prayer.
“Curated Prayer” is new for me and our church. It is intentional intercession that is interactive on a corporate level with all subscribed. Your agreement matters. Your intercession counts. Together we will make an impact in our city.
Best of the season,
