Perhaps you’ve heard about the latest band to hit the English and Welsh shores? Not a band of musicians, but of nuns! And they bring you not tunes, but bones. For 12 years and counting, a band of sisters have toured the world with relics of a famous Carmelite nun called St Thérèse of Lisieux, and this month they are in the UK, just one leg (literally) of a tour that has already taken them to Ireland, Cameroon and Guyana this year alone.
There is this house on Winnebago Street on the near-east side of Madison that used to be a Meth lab but now it’s the central hub of our 24-7 Boiler Room community. The floorboards are charred from when the kitchen used to manufacture narcotics.
Have you ever wondered why tears flow from your eyes? Why don't they secretly flow from the back of your knees, down your calves to your ankles? Or from underneath your arms, down your back all the way to your hips? Tears are meant to be shared, from one pair of eyes to the other. You're not supposed to cry by yourself.
On September 4, 1859, Charles Grandison Finney delivered a sermon called “The Prevailing Prayer-Meeting” to a Glasgow congregation. His words may have been antiquated, but his insight on the equal attention we must give to prayer and action is timeless.
If we want to see mountains move, cancers disappear and dollars come through the mail, we’re going to need plenty of faith in God. Jesus put it like this: If you believe you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer (Matthew 21:22) On another occasion, when the disciples’ prayers hadn’t worked, Jesus explained that it was: ‘Because you have so little faith’ (Matthew 17:20).
It struck me the other day that perhaps my most promising disciple at the moment is an eight-year-old towhead named Preston, who lives in my neighborhood. I befriended his mom at the local pool last summer and since have spent time nearly every week with this precious, but broken family.
Today I stood in an old bowling club home of the 24-7 Boiler Room in Guildford, England. A mixed bunch of friends and strangers gathered around praying.
“God, we pray Give bread to those who do not have bread And to us who have bread give the hunger for justice” As I read these words this morning, reclining on my couch, sipping pure apple juice and listening to the music of Chopin, a few months of study whirled in my mind. Recently I’ve been revisiting the prayer Jesus taught His disciples to usher in Kingdom life and relationships.
I just joined a cult. I realize this may come as a disappointment to some of you and I hope we can still be friends – in fact I am hoping to stay involved in 24-7, if you’ll still have me.
I was recently asked, ‘what does a typical Friday morning in your Community house in Thun, Switzerland look like?’ The question threw me a little, when you live with a community of people all focused on loving Jesus and living the best they can slap bang in the middle of the nightlife of our city… there isn’t a lot that’s normal. The only way to answer their question was to describe just one recent Friday and how we responded to blood on our doorstep… 1am – I wake up slowly, through the open window I hear loud screams from the streets.
There’s been a rumbling for some time & now its here; the third part of ‘Prayer-Mission-Justice,’ the threefold call of 24-7 Prayer. We’re feeling God’s call to rise to this and are just now working out what it will mean.
This week non-Christian teenagers are experiencing God in a 24-7 Prayer Room. Not in a church building but at their school in Romford, England.
