Week 6: Receive Jesus’ Kingdom: REVIVAL and TRANSFORMATION for Our Nation & Global Region
By Mrs MarDee Kaylock, Melbourne, Victoria
Spheres of Influence: Creative Arts
Intention: For God’s creativity to be fully and uniquely realized in all spheres of society.
To see every community come to a deeper understanding of The Creator’s prophetic imagination and to see the arts activated in excellence, unity and humility within Australia and beyond our borders.
Biblical Promises: Isaiah 55:1-13 (Voice Translation) Click here: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=isaiah55:1-13&version=VOICE
Receive God’s Promises for Our Nation & Global Region:
God is calling his creative people into a new season, to be his storytellers no matter where we are or what artistic discipline we use. He is inviting us to come to stillness & silence first, listening for the intake of breathe before a word is spoken. With quiet intimacy as our default setting we can imagine, create and bear fruit that will remain from this centred place.
We are designed in his image, to share stories, facilitate hope, and offer light and freedom for the heaviest of hearts in the darkest of places. There is a significant release happening in Australia currently, a download of creative ingenuity, excellence, inspiration and humility across people groups, communities and artistic disciplines. Pray for and with creative people and artists, discerning as you listen to where God is moving and as you respond fearlessly with a voice for the oppressed, hope for the hopeless and humility for the proud. With a servant heart, come in the opposite spirit facing opposition and oppression with singing, dancing, painting, and making. You are storytellers, hope givers, and water carriers so open your mouth, bring hope and carry water to the least of these.
Pray for REVIVAL and TRANSFORMATION:
Lord, we declare your kingdom purposes to be realized in and through our communities for your creative Spirit to flood the entertainment and culture shaping industries. We pray for favor and humble authority for your artists as they stand in the music, film, TV, performing and visual arts spheres of influence and release your healing hope and freeing truth through their work. Be revealed in & through your creative people within our land and beyond our borders.
