AFTER 40 DAYS… NOW WHAT?
Peter was kept in prison, but constant[a] prayer was offered to God for him by the church. That night Peter was sleeping, bound with two chains between two soldiers; ....an angel of the Lord struck Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, “Arise quickly!” And his chains fell off his hands (Acts 12: 5-7)
We have just completed 40 days of dawn prayer together as a church. Attendance ranged between 117- 215 people each day, culminating with just below 300 people on September 16th, Malaysia Day. Hence each day around 15-30% of the church came to pray! That’s incredible! If you did come you’d have already been greatly blessed. Many found breakthroughs and fresh hope and there were many answered prayers. There were healings, restoration of families, securing of jobs and financial breakthroughs. Most of all, waking early and seeking Him disciplined many of us in a closer and more powerful faith-walk with the Lord (Ps 63:1). It was an amazing time together and I believe our faith level has grown! If you did come, well done! If you missed out, I feel sad. But incredibly, we can all still tap in. Here’s how….
When Peter was in prison facing death under Herod’s reign, the early church fell into a season of constant prayer. The offshoot of this? Prison chains fell off! Peter walked out of a maximum-security goal free. How do we build on our momentum after forty days? By grooving into constant prayer as a church, taking turns so that a constant flow of worship and intercession fills our lives and our sanctuary. The key lies in ongoing 24/7 Prayer! I believe God is calling us to that. Constant prayer opens prison doors, break strongholds and chains in our lives and ushers angelic visitations!
The early church was born in 24/7 prayer when the Holy Spirit fell (Acts 2). The same ushered in the Azusa Street revival in 1906. The Moravians prayed 24/7 for over 100 years and reached the world with the gospel. It was the Moravians that led Wesley to true conversion. Now is our time to build. Sign up for 24/7 prayer today and may you receive fresh visions, be reignited in your love for Jesus and see breakthroughs in your lives. The spirit of the sovereign Lord has truly anointed us…to pray!
