Past Successes

Do you pray?  Do you pray every day?  How do you connect with other intercessors in your local area?  I’d be interested to know.

I am in the process of developing a new blog which is geared towards prayer in my town, but I am finding that I get very little traffic on it currently.  Is that because people aren’t interested in prayer?  Is it because the intercessors do not use social networks?

Social networking is all about the present, and what is taking place.  But the internet is also an ocean of resources that link us with the past, and with our heritage, with our identity, if you like.  If we forget our identity, we are not able to walk in it.  Last night at our local prayer meeting (not church-specific), someone had a picture of pylons with power cables carried along them.  She likened us to pylons, and pointed out that we need to stand tall and take the right shape, so that the power is transmitted effectively.  If we don’t know who we are, we cannot stand tall.

How many of us bear in mind where we’ve come from, and make links with the past?  I was amazed and astonished today, this morning, to unexpectedly watch the testimony of someone in my town, who I’ve known, and to hear how God broke through into his life and touched him.  His story, although it resonated powerfully with me, is powerful because of the God who changed him, not because of himself alone.  Watch his testimony (Part One)

Tell me about peoples’ lives, yes, but ONLY about people who have been touched by Jesus.  Like the woman with the flow of blood, who just touched his garment, and was afraid to own up to what she had done, because she had made Jesus ceremonially unclean (see Mark 5).  Or like the American gang leader, Nicky Cruz, who was touched by a small-town pastor, who threatened to kill that pastor, and the pastor ending up leading him to Jesus.  Tell me about the self-effacing Dutchman Brother Andrew, who found Jesus, and simply sold out his life to him like all of us are called to do, and changed countless lives through God as a result.

I don’t mind where you have come from.  I know God doesn’t.  If you’re searching for the God who is love, who has loved you all your life and is the only perfect Father, then yes, I am interested.  There are around 4 billion souls, at the very least, on this planet at the moment who have not yet met Jesus.  We are here to help them meet him.  We know that, just like Jesus, those who passionate about reaching the many are passionate about reaching the one.

You may not live in Bognor Regis.  You may not yet have a passion for intercession.  But take a look at the new Bognor website, and perhaps make a comment, or spread it.  Being a Christian is all about our future, and our destiny is to rule the nations.  God told Jeremiah “See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”  If you believe that God is calling you to partake in this intercessory inheritance, in this prophetic destiny, meet with Him now and listen to Him.

About stayingfaithful

I am looking for anything that relates to life and to a fuller life. I am bored by the normal and the natural and interested in the supernatural. There must be more than this. We were put on this earth for more than a nine to five prison, as someone said a few years ago.
