A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities

2nd stop, great little turnout got this town's First Annual National Day of Prayer. This year it was organized by Kenny Grubbs and Gary Hartman (both are pastors in this area). Next year Jimmy Culpepper, another local pastor will participate in the planning. 

It was great to see familiar faces and meet some new friends. I spoke from 2Chronicles...not 7:14, but 16:9 where we're told that the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart are completely His. And I challenged them with, "What does it mean to have a heart completely His?" According to this passage it means, "to rely" on Him. We then went to Isaiah 22:9ff and I challenged us to not focus on the political solutions (2 Chronicles 16:7) and doing what you can see needs to be done (Isaiah 22:9-11a). But instead, humble yourselves! Do NOT celebrate (Vs 13) if your political party wins. That isn't what God is calling us to do. He is calling us to brokenness (Vs 12). 
Finally I went thru 5 areas of cleansing that we need to do every day they are from Greg Frizzell's book, Praying God's Heart in Times Like These (pg 36), namely, yielding wrong thoughts/attitudes, sinful words, wrong relationships, things we need to stop doing and the ignoring of full surrender to God. 
It was a great time. They asked me to speak at next years already.

Side-Note: One guy came up afterwards and asked about that "perfect-timing" when a guy like him, a "Fixer" should get in and fix things, relying on God of course.
 I advised him, "Only when he has perfect peace. God is not a God of confusion," I said. So I advised him to NOT focus on fixing anything, but rather, focus on relying upon God, meaning, giving it completely to Him, to do what He wants, when He wants, in His timing. 
"What will happen," I said, "Is that you will be focused on relying upon God, letting Him prompt you and without even realizing you are doing so, you will be participating in 'the-fix' because God has bright you into the mix, rather than you figuring it out and doing it because  your actions are determined by your motives and your timetable."
Good discussion with this brother.
