This past week has been saturated in prayer.
We spent hours in worship and prayer crying out to God for Israel and the nations.
On Friday October 5, it rained in a significant way in Jerusalem for the first time in 5 months! We interpreted this as a sign of God’s favor and blessings for the All Nations Convocation.
We also observed the sun cut through the clouds and open a portal to heaven (also October 5).
Prayer changes us and our world.
It saturates us with the presence of God like a sustained rain nourishes the land.
It redirects our focus on what (WHO) matters most.
It revives our passion. Notice the image of Pastor Steve of Crosspoint praying at the western/ wailing wall. Jews and others pray there with great gusto every day (especially Wednesday October 9 which is Yom Kippur/the Day of Atonement).
Prayer unites us in a profound and mystical way with other Christians.
Steve and I felt this at the All Nations Convocation this past six days. Praying and worshipping with 152 nations gives you a new perspective on what God is doing in our world and how His Spirit through prayer creates deep fellowship among diverse people’s.
So then what does prayer meant to you? And are you willing to attend the Convocation September 18, 2020?
