How do we prepare? Tonight I am going out at 8pm to the Beehive for our fortnightly prayer for revival.
We normally kick off the meeting with a couple of songs, but it’s pretty informal. We do not usually have instruments, but I am thinking: perhaps I’ll take my guitar tonight. Sometimes we start off in a bad key and that can be a struggle!
A month ago, as we were leaving, one of the older attenders got on his bike, and fell off before he started cycling. He has been in constant back pain – ‘decompression’ since then. Pray that his back makes a quick recovery.
So, to preparation: a scripture, a cry out to God for a watch on my heart. Why am I going out tonight to pray, on a Friday night? For the following reasons:
1. Bognor needs Jesus
2. If I don’t pray, who will?
3. I need to pray with others to create that unity in the Spirit.
4. We are to pray always without ceasing.
5. We are commanded to pray.
6. I could sit here and pray on my own, but I may get distracted.
7. I need to pray for revival.
Last Sunday at my church I spoke out the Scripture: “The desert and the parched land will be glad;
the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the rose“. This is what I want to pray tonight, because I know my spirit is often a desert, and I want to be filled with His Spirit and living in what I have been given. I do not lack anything because I am in Christ. He is all my supply and all my satisfaction. I am His and He is mine.
