For those who have kept intimacy with God as their primary assignment, fruitfulness will flow. We bring God with us to a lost and dying world. He energizes us with His life as we go forth, and we realize that time spent with Jesus has empowered us. It is worth it to seek the Lord’s face. As we go forth from the prayer room, let’s pray this prayer found in Tom Tenney’s book called The God Chasers:
“Father, we confess that we want to see change in our lives and in our church so that we can bring about change in our city. Give us such a heart and passion after You that we may begin to see your glory flow out of us to convict and save the lost. Release your presence through us as You did through Charles Finney when he walked through factories and saw workers drop to their knees under Your glory and cried out for forgiveness although not one word had been spoken or preached. May the faintest shadow of Your presence in our lives heal the sick and restore the lame we meet in the streets. Let Your presence so saturate us that unsaved guests can’t step into our homes or be around us with unrepentant hearts. May Your glory bring conviction in their lives that lead to salvation—not because of the words we say but because of Your presence and power in our hearts.”
God is awakening our hearts in the prayer room. That’s why it’s good to have your prayer room outward-looking. Maps, globes, news about missionaries, and many other things can give it an outward focus.
We’ve had one-week Houses of Prayer where unsaved friends and family’s names were taped up on one wall and the local pastors names on another wall. We had evenings in our prayer room where we focused on praying for the sick. In all these demonstrations of loving prayer we are showing earth that our God reigns supreme. We are bringing the reality of heaven to earth.
“The wake up call is now being sounded for the greatest force for truth and righteousness that has yet been released on the earth. It is now time to show the earth that heaven exists. All that we know on earth is but a shadow of the reality that is in heaven. We are called to bring reality to earth so that men will seek God.” Rick Joyner
