A Church with a Heart for our Community

January 31st Tuesday

Greetings to you in the name of the One who exercises the reality and the authority of heaven, Jesus Christ – THE Risen Saviour! Another lovely day in the Kingdom as a layer of fresh snow hides the drabness of the ‘no-growth’ season. I trust that you enjoyed a great weekend and Monday…and semi-excited about the week ahead. We end a month today and start a new one tomorrow, looking forward to special days – Ground Hog Day, Valentine’s Day, Super Bowl 51 Sunday, and Who knows what might happen Day (okay, I made that one up). Today I will be praying for you, asking Father to give you good health, a happy heart, and safe travelling.

We were in our weekly prayer gathering – The Cry For Our City – and I sensed that something significant was happening. I could not identify it – so I decided to wait for God to reveal what it was that had been present, what He was trying to communicate. This morning God sent, through a contact, these words:

“We may be living in the days of –

the greatest prayer movement of History!
Despite some familiar patterns of prayerlessness in the Church, more Christians are praying now, certainly, than at any time in history. 
More than 200 million believers pray every day for the advancement of world missions. At least 15 million groups around the world pray weekly for missions in the communities, probably even more.  
Prayer events and gatherings abound all over the world in many countries”

Wow! I had been an active participant in a prayer gathering that was totally engaged in the greatest prayer movement in history…and  not even aware. I am drawn to the words: Who despises [and takes for granted] the day of small [and seemingly insignificant] things? Men will rejoice when they see the plumb line [setting the last stone in place] in the hand of Zerubbabel. – Zecharian 4:10. I think that God wanted me to know and to share that there is powerful and necessary contributions to be made through the smallest details…like putting in the last piece of a jigsaw puzzle or painting the last brushstroke onto the canvas to finish a masterpiece.

Something to ponder – have a great day!
