The world is praying and the Holy Spirit is moving. On Pentecost Sunday millions of Christians from every nation on earth gathered for one great ‘Amen’.
Remember that Icelandic volcano last month? Business trips were cancelled, the skies over Europe became gloriously silent for a few days, weather girls broke out in tongues just trying to pronounce the name of the thing and you probably knew someone somewhere stranded abroad. My eldest son, for instance, was grounded in Zambia where he’d been visiting his grandparents who run a school for AIDS orphans.
Lately my brain’s been stuck on a few simple questions on justice: If we believe God is who He says He is, then why do we pray like He’s our grandfather asking for our Christmas list? It strikes me that one of our road blocks in approaching justice is our sense that one person can’t make a difference and that the issues are too big to even begin. If we’re praying to an all-powerful Creator God, then those are not insurmountable problems.
God called, the world responded and the last ten years have been filled with the unceasing prayer of His people. As we approach a significant Birthday for the 24-7 Prayer movement I can’t help reflecting on the encouragements we don’t want to forget… The smell of candles just blown out reminds me of the dozens of Birthday’s I’ve enjoyed.
“The Prayer Room is alive and changing and growing and full of God’s presence..
Canterbury is a small city in the southeast of England. It’s a city famous for prayer.
“Is it true today, that when people pray, cloudless skies will break, Kings and Queens will shake?” Delirious, History Makers “With great power comes great responsibility.” Uncle Ben, Spiderman When I was young I wanted to grow up to be significant.
‘I never should have swapped from Scotch to Martinis’, croaked the actor Humphrey Bogart on his deathbed. Famous last words afford unusual honesty, humor or pathos so I hope mine won’t be ‘White with no sugar, please’ or ‘Darling, give me a minute, I’m just fixing the telly.
Campus America is a simple call for a connected, unbroken Year of Prayer in 2010 on every college and university campus in the U.S.
“He was despised and rejected by men, A man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering… Surely he took up our infirmities And carried our sorrows…” Isaiah 53:3-4 I always thought that unless you were the kind of person who was always clenching their fist and shouting 'Come on!' (think Tim Henman, the British Tennis star after a particularly impressive shot), you weren't a passionate person or weren't invested in what you did. Passion seemed to me to be defined by physical or perceivable demonstrations of emotion.
Passionate prayer, crazy stories and a welcoming smile? It must be time to meet this months Unsung Hero. This is the 4th in our Unsung Heroes series which introduces individuals from around the 24-7 Prayer movement who have given everything to see prayer transform lives.
Last year somehow I landed the opportunity to write a book. I've always wanted to write a book but somehow it's a lot easier to write a book 'one day' rather than actually write one today! A year later and after a lot of hard work and much patience on the part of my editor and the publishers my book was printed.
