Week 3: Receive Jesus’ Kingdom: REVIVAL and TRANSFORMATION through Us – His Church
By Pastor Jenny Hagger AM, Adelaide, SA
Spheres of Influence: Religion – Prayer, Charity & Not for Profits
Intention: We are Raising Up Houses of Prayer in Our Nation.
Receive God’s Promises as His Church:
As the days are becoming increasing tumultuous across the globe, we are seeing the birth of houses of prayer raised up in the spirit of the tabernacle of David (Amos 9:11, Acts 15:16, Psalm 132). “Come, let us build the wall of Jerusalem, that we may no longer be a reproach.” – Nehemiah 2:17. The call of the Lord is for us in the church to unite in worship and prayer, as in the time of Nehemiah when the trumpet sounded and they rallied together on the walls (Nehemiah 4:19). Prayer meetings to “keep the watch” are being held in churches, school campuses, universities, the market place, hospitals and sporting clubs. Some are called to build 24/7 prayer walls, others to two hourly watches.
The rising call to intercession in Australia and across the world is an expression of Christ’s love. He desires us to give up our time and agendas to hear his heartbeat for those struggling in darkness, and he leads us in intercession to see the victory, to the manifest glory of His name (John 17:20 – 22). United prayer flows from our intimacy with the Lord and our deepening relationship with each other. The warrior bride is arising, with the passion of David, to pursue her king. The Spirit and the Bride say come! (Revelation 22:17).
Pray for REVIVAL and TRANSFORMATION:
• Thank you Father for raising up houses of prayer across our nation as an expression of the love of Christ who daily carries our burdens.
• Thank you Lord for the bountiful provision so evident in this nation’s resources and economy. Enable us to be generous in giving to those in need in our midst and abroad.
• We pray for an outpouring of Holy Spirit fire to enable us to carry your REVIVAL and transformation deeply across Australia.
• We pray for our listed friends, with the fervency and love of Christ for them.
Activate God’s Promises as His Church:
The Lord has promised that when two or three come together in his name, there He is in the midst -Matthew 18:20. Start a small prayer group in your home or church and allow the Lord to lead and instruct you by the power of the Holy Spirit.
