I spent the last two days in prayer with leaders representing more than a third of the churches in America. In the spirit of Joel 1:14, we gathered to “Cry Out to the Lord” in solemn assembly.
It was a time of united prayer – across all that ordinarily divides us generationally, racially, and denominationally. Evangelical leaders humbled themselves together before the Lord and sought the Lord’s forgiveness and restoration. We committed to desperately pursue God’s manifest presence, to re-engage God’s divine purpose, and to enter into a season of prayer for spiritual awakening in the church and revival in the culture.
It was humbling. It was convicting. It was encouraging. It was uplifting. It was energizing. It was hopeful. It was amazing.
The hope is to multiply this experience through similar solemn assemblies in congregations throughout the nation as God moves to unite the heart of the Body of Christ in fresh ways.
If you’re hungry and thirsty for righteousness; if you’re desperate for God’s presence, power and provision; if you know that the Church needs awakening and the culture needs reviving in order that Gospel can be advanced without hindrance to the world, then join the movement of prayer that God is igniting today.
You can start today and then join others in a national virtual prayer meeting that starts January 10th from 9-10:30 p.m. eastern. The devotional guide is a valuable resource if you’re like me and you need a physical companion to keep you tracking forward for the duration of the journey with Jesus.
