It begins

It's a very interesting thing to experience around the clock prayer. Because it's so together and so individual at the same time.

It's individual because we all have our own style. Our own passions. Our own music. Our own art... our own dance.

It's together because it's a team of people all in common purpose. Common God. Common humanity. Common frailty. Common task.

The task: "Hear from Heaven". Chris Jones spoke this morning at Freedom House and made some wonderfully insightful points about how God doesn't NEED us... He wants us. He wants us to hear the heartbeat of heaven and do like Jesus did.

John 5:
19-20So Jesus explained himself at length. "I'm telling you this straight. The Son can't independently do a thing, only what he sees the Father doing. What the Father does, the Son does. The Father loves the Son and includes him in everything he is doing.

I'm going to try and spend as much time as I can in our prayer room this next week. Not because prayer works better there... but because all too often we don't quiet ourselves and really interact with God. REALLY hear what God's saying. REALLY be in the place where we're ready and willing to respond to God's heart tugs. Really press past our surface thoughts to dig into the Garden of Wisdom.

When I asked God this morning for a taste of what the Father was saying, this is what I heard...

As Chris was saying this morning, it's not about ME being able to be or do anything. It seems foolish to think that prayer can transform. It seems like long odds. But prayer is about God being able to do anything through faith-filled, humble, broken, warrior poets... because he's GOD.

Follow along with what God's saying in the prayer room at www.freedomhousebrantford.blogspot.com. Email dave@freedomhouse.ca if you have a prayer request that you'd like people to be praying for around the clock or for the link to sign up for an hour.
