In just a few days we will start our 40 Day prayer journey, where from Coast-to-Coast people will seek God’s face and cry out to Him for AWAKENING in our lives, churches and cities
We know our part, but what does it look like in Heaven when God’s children cry out to Him?
The Book of Revelation gives us awe-inspiring glimpses into the activities surrounding the Throne of God in a time of history that is quickly coming upon us. The picture is of incense rising to God’s Throne and the One who sits on the Throne replying with thunderous answers.
Revelation 8:3-5 Another angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all God’s people, on the golden altar in front of the throne.The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of God’s people, went up before God from the angel’s hand. Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.
God is attentive to the prayers of but a single person, but there is something special when God’s children begin to cry out as one that the Father’s will would be done “on earth as it is in heaven.” INCENSE BEGINS TO RISE.
We are asking during this time that people turn to the Lord three times a day in personal prayer (Daniel 6:10, Psalm 55:17) believing God to move in our personal lives and across our churches.
We will provide a prayer guide that can give us a unified voice of request and intercession to our Heavenly Father. Of course, we know people will begin to “pray in the Spirit…with all kinds prayers and requests” (Ephesians 6:18).
This guide will first direct us to pursue God Himself and strengthen and deepen our connection to Him. Out of that strength of abiding and renewed connection will come prayers that will arrest the attention of heaven and shape the season to come!
You can get that guide at CityReach Central here: http://cityreachcentral.org/40-days-of-prayer/. Also, a new prayer guide (the Lord willing) will be provided about halfway through to keep us fresh.
I AM CONVINCED THAT HEAVEN’S ANSWERS ARE PREPARED FOR THIS HOUR!
The question is, will enough incense arise to alter the course of destinies and families, churches and cities and even nations?
Let’s answer the call together to pray and seek His Face.
Psalm 141:1 LORD, I cry out to You; Make haste to me! Give ear to my voice when I cry out to You. 2 Let my prayer be set before You as incense, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
