Last night a group (twice as many as last week) of hungry believers gathered at the church building for prayer. It was a great time! We fasted all day and came together to ask God for miracles on behalf of our church. We confessed our unbelief and asked for more faith. We worshipped and prayed for each other. We prayed specific prayers for big problems and asked for a response from God. We asked for specific miracles. Breast cancer, spinal abnormalities, financial mountains, depression, lupus, discouragement, deep wounds, restoration of vision, and more were our requests. I believe God has answered and is answering our prayers.
I believe that we made a significant "full step" forward in learning how to pray for supernatural power and miracles from God. Satan wants us to play it safe and accept things for the way they are. God wants us to "step" out on the dangerous waters and trust Him to show us how to walk on it. It is uncomfortable. It is challenging. It calls us to risk looking foolish. It demands audacious faith. It makes us come alive!
Last night I sensed a refreshing come over the people. We were close-close to each other and close to God. I sensed His pleasure. It felt good. I feel renewed. I look forward to more times of prayer like that!
