Notes On The Prayer Meeting

I’m a little late (about a week) but I just thought I would report a little bit on the things the Lord seems to be highlighting as our prayer meeting gathers and prays.  Last week there were two interesting points, I’ll try and be a little timely for tonight’s prayer meeting.

  • President Bush-We all sensed the President needed serious prayer, but I don’t think any of us would have imagined spending 45 minutes in serious, concentrated prayer for the leader of our nation.  To those who have ears to hear, remember to pray for our President.  There’s a great need for him to strengthen himself in God in this hour, no matter what Fox News or CNN have to say.  For more, read Lou Engle’s article here.
  • Luke 16:16 Company-Over the past several weeks the Lord has continually spoken to us about the need for God to raise up a company of people who press into the Kingdom forcefully.  I believe spefically this relates to the city of Cedar Rapids.  God is looking for a company of people in the city to arise who will press into the Kingdom with force.  But at this moment we must pray for such a company.  There is a need to birth it in prayer.

I want to encourage everyone, God is moving.  This is the time to pray and keep praying.  As my friend Duane (and the Lord of Heaven and Earth) says, “In the time of rain, ask for more rain.”
