Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
The article on hindrances to corporate prayer that some of your gave me insight into a few months ago, was just posted live at prayerconnect.net.
While there are many hindrances, I discuss six primary ones.
1. No Personal Prayer Life
2. Poor Past Prayer Experiences
3. No Expectations
4. Fear of Complaints or Discomfort
5. Staying in Control
A friend emailed me recently, concerned because she wonders if she heard God wrong. I won’t go into specifics because hers is a very common concern among people learning to listen to God. It’s one I also experienced when I was first starting out in my two-way conversations with God. The dangers of hearing wrong seem huge:
To all prayer warriors or intercessors living in the Orlando FL area , I would like very much to assemble a dedicated team of intercessors who are passionate about prayer to pray for revival in all nations and to pray for the children being murdered in Syria and the children in abortion clinics in our nation as well. I live in Orlando FL by Bithilo off of 419 please email me at…Continue

OK, so some of you have already branded me as a heretic. "How can this guy not care about revival?" Others are at least curious and will read on. Maybe one or two (my best friend and wife perhaps) can't wait to hear more.
Trust me, at least here at the start, when I say that I would love to see revival in my city (Austin), country and the world. I've read about the great revivals in our past (of which there have been few) and heard many messages and exhortations to pray for…Continue

...Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. -Hebrews 10:22-24
The longer I pray for God to bring Revival to our nation, communities, churches, congregations, and pastors, the more I…Continue

The deepest and most meaningful communion we have with God is when we enter into the fellowship of solitary prayer in the secret place. I call it the inner chamber. Jesus understood the importance of solitude. “Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed” (Mark 1:35).
When you enter your own inner chamber, notice…Continue

How’s your prayer life lately? Are you overcoming in daily prayer and intercession or would you be embarrassed to reveal your prayerlessness? I want to challenge you regarding the disturbing question Jesus put to His closest disciple, Peter, as he shamefully fell asleep at a desperate time when urgent prayer was needed from Christ’s companion, as He faced alone the impending cross with all of its physical agony, satanic torment and spiritual separation from…Continue
In today's post we are going to look at the idea that desperation before God in prayer is quite important. (Today's devotional is drawn from Psalm 13:3)
David was being chased by Saul here and he was in dire circumstances, Saul wanted to kill him. (We have all been in tough circumstances. Maybe some of you are right now. Then this post is for you.) So read on and see what David learned from God.
First, he says to the Lord says look at me.…

Call for Thanksgiving and Continued Prayer for the WPA
Thanks so much for your strong prayers for the WPA. It was an awesome time in the presence of the Lord that we believe is sending out the “New Wave” of His Spirit through the prayers of the 9000 participants from 86 nations and the millions of those who also took part on May 17 in 378 cities of Indonesia and around the world through satellite TV and Internet. You can see the plenary…Continue

"Every significant outpouring of the Spirit seems to have been preceded by earnest, agonizing intercession, accompanied by a heartbrokenness and humiliation before God... Let no one pray for revival—let no one pray for a mighty baptism of power who is not prepared for deep heart-searchings and confession of sin in his personal life. Revival, in its beginnings, is a most humiliating experience. When one, like Isaiah, sees himself in the light of God's holiness he must…Continue

Today, I am going to write the first of a series of devotional thoughts about Psalm 13. In this psalm there can be found a desperate man, David, calling out to God with all that he had.
First, a little background. It is likely that David wrote this psalm/song/prayer while being pursued by Saul in the mountains. This prayer was used by the Israelite's (and us) to ask for help in the face of long term struggles, illness, persecution, poverty, etc.

SYRIA CONFLICT SPILLS INTO LEBANON
by Elizabeth Kendal
The conflict in Syria is political, sectarian and increasingly jihadist; local, regional and increasingly international. The US - Saudi - Gulf Arab axis is determined to deal Iran a heavy blow and counter its ascendancy by removing Syria from the strategic 'Shi'ite Crescent' through which Iran is connected to Hezballah on Israel's…

Each of these are modeled after the architectural wonder in New York, the majestic Grand Central Station. Built in 1871, Grand…Continue

“You won’t believe the things that have happened to me."
The man stood over my desk as he spoke those words. Then he proceeded to tell a tale of woe the likes of which I had not heard in many years. As I listened, it seemed to boil down to three basic parts. First, he had lost his promising career through a complicated series of cunning plots against him. Then his wife left him for greener pastures and more security. And now he was facing a mountain of legal bills. He seemed to…
