The disciples asked Jesus, "Lord, teach us to pray (Luke 11:1)." Prayer is something that we learn and grow in by doing. Saturday will be an excellent opportunity for us to learn and to grow in our prayer lives and for us to prayer walk our campus and pray for our church. We see throughout Scripture and Church history the great importance of believing prayer in the pouring out of God's blessings and His Spirit upon His people. I hope to see you Saturday.
Blessings to you,
…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there. (II Chronicles 7:14-16)
Introductory teaching- Ed Salas (1 ½ hours):
Jesus said that he only does what he sees the Father doing. (John 5:19) We will discuss the importance of being in alignment with what God is doing as we learn to intentionally listen to him and align ourselves with his heart. We will take a look at what the Bible teaches about the immense spiritual authority that every child of God possesses and we will learn how to use that authority to break free of any negative aspects of the history of the church.
Prayer topics will include:
- Aligning with the Holy Spirit
- Authority to pray and bless
- The prayer of agreement
- Understanding identificational confession and repentance
Walking around the church property will give each person an opportunity to capture the heart of God for the future of River47. We will walk in pairs to:
- Establish a new chapter in the life of the church.
- Ask the Lord to re-envision the people of River47 to serve his purposes and desires for the future.
- Ask the Lord to heal and cleanse our church from past wounds and to break any enemy holds.
- Pray for the people in the community that have yet to come to saving faith in Jesus. (Luke 10:2)
