The message from Revelation 8:1-5 was strong! We opened our prayer porch with a full slate of signups for the first few weeks. People are getting into the groove of the daily devotional packets and I think this week’s prayer banner worksheet will really help! I’m excited to start seeing the map get filled in with spiritual activity all over Lansing!
We had about a dozen people post #LoveLetterFromGod and it was super encouraging.
- During the week before the 2nd Sunday create a place of prayer.
- If you have a 24/7 facility then it can be in a room that is accessible
- If not it can be in a public place (Capitol or county building steps, park by a river or lake, someone’s backyard, etc…)
- If you can, make 4 posters:
- 1 explaining the High Priestly Prayer of John 17 and how to pray through it (See book chapter 2 for details)
- 2 explaining the Lord’s Prayer of Luke 11 and how to pray through it
- 3 for people to sign that they prayed in this spot
- 4 to write the names of the people they are praying for to come to Christ
- Here’s what our prayerspot looked like
- If you have to do this in a public space you can do it online with a link to a google presentation. Everyone logs on at the spot and goes through the four slides. Just send out a shareable link. Here’s and example.
- Preach about the power of prayer from Revelation!
- Make sure everyone uses the prayer banner template in the book or give out a printed template of your own – I don’t have one so be creative – but here’s a pic of what we handed out
- People should put their personal prayer spots up on the mission map
