Greetings again from Binghamton, NY:
Wednesday morning we are on the road again, this time heading for Clarksburg, W.VA. We've been in this area over two weeks, and to be honest, I'm getting the "itch" to get back on the road. My Mother says that I have Gypsy blood in me.... I guess she's right!
This past week we've been in some "different meetings." Corinne and I have been meeting with a handful of Saints from this area and just praying with them as they have been seeking God for a great revival in their region of the Northeast. A week ago Saturday we had a wonderful time as people gathered here in Binghamton from as far as the Pittsburgh and Meadville, PA area to help the local Saints worship God in a harp and bowl event. What was supposed to be 8 hours of sustained worship and intercession actually lasted for 12!
Then Sunday night a small group of leaders and others gathered and we worshiped the Lord some more but began to actively enter into a season of prophetic prayer. We were not just praying but also listening to the One we prayed to. And He did not let us down!!! We heard from God, so much so, that we decided to gather for the rest of the week, and He decided to keep in fellowship with us as well.
Here's the deal, I am really sensing that the Church needs to be praying again. We need special times of prayer. Remember Wednesday nights? They used to be called, "Prayer Meeting Night." We are encouraging pastors, churches and leaders to once again call forth times of "special prayer." Now by "special prayer" I'm not just talking about praying for Aunt Mary's sore toe. Of course that is OK to do, but we have to go way beyond that. "Special prayer" is prophetic prayer. This is taking the time to not only talk to the Lord, but to listen. It also includes worship and soaking in His presence.
So, here's the deal.... how about gathering together a couple of friends some evening this week, bring in a guitar, or put on some soaking Cd's and just begin to enter into His presence. Talk to Him about needing direction for your lives and your ministries. Ask Him about it. Ask Him to show you how to reach your regions for Christ. Then listen to what He says. He will speak, either through prophetic words, or through His "still small voice."
I'm telling everyone I know, "U Need to Pray!"
