Prophetic Prayer

The Church needs to reject a spirit of timidity when it comes to prayer and mission, which are intrinsically connected.  Like the prophet Jeremiah, the Church has a prophetic role, starting via prayer, to “uproot and tear down, destroy and overthrow, to plant and to build”. Even the prayers of one “righteous man” avails much, and the prophet Elijah held back the rain for 3 years.

So, why isn’t the Church more bold and believing when it comes to changing the environment through prayer?  I believe because of a passive and timid spirit contributing to a lack of faith!

The Church needs to stop making childish excuses and mature in its prophetic call over the nations!

Becoming Peter

In Luke 5, Peter is referred to by Luke as “Simon” but uses “Simon-Peter” to mark the beginning of the change, the extraordinary moment when Simon is overwhelmed by Jesus’ “catch of fish” miracle and Simon becomes open to the call upon to become the man Jesus said He would make him to be in John 1:42, that is Peter.  This happens when Simon is struck with the reality that Jesus is more than he thought He was, and he moves from respectfully calling Jesus, “Master-Teacher” to “Lord”, which is a prerequisite to follow Him.

When were you first struck with who Jesus really was and  how did it open you to His call to you?
