Today we quickly want to shift our focus and prayers to the world, to the earth, the global community we are connected to. This world is in darkness, deep pain and trauma across the earth.
Even now as you read this, your heart would be quickening towards a part of the planet you have a passion for, or a people group on whom you have compassion, or an area of need far beyond your own ability to be in proximity to it.
This is the potential we have in prayer. We can send prayers like weapons of mass destruction upon the darkness that continued to resist dominion. The Enemy believes the earth is still his. And his ways still carry the potential for stealing, killing and destroying. We carry the victory over his power through the weapons of our warfare (2 Corinthians 10:4). Prayer changes things in spaces you will never step foot.
This scripture reminds me of the Genesis story at creation, where the spirit was hovering over the darkness and then the Lord said ‘let there be light’
“The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.” Genesis 1:2 NLT
Your words, declaration and voice spoken out over darkness can shift things. Speak out loud today over your earth. Be moved to pray prayers with authority, trust and conviction. We want to know what nations, people and places move your heart.
What we love the most about our spiritual community who gathers in our congregations across Montreal is the diversity of the nations, tribes and tongue that are represented in our House! If we were all mobilized to pray over these places we would quite literally be impacting nation. What nation moves you? Comment below.
One desire of R1000 is that our gathering in October would invite even more people from continents around the world to find a home. Let’s pray that way also today.
