Wednesday, January 27th - Evening Session 

Even in dry and desolate times, we can hold fast and be thankful for the everlasting hope that the Lord’s living waters brings us. Tonight, we prayed together for God’s living water to wash over us, and that we desire to know Him. He is the only one that can satisfy us, and He will sustain us.  “...My heart wants more of You, my heart wants something new, so I surrender all”.  This is our cry tonight, Lord. We surrender our lives to You, and we are desperate for revival in this world. We want to be changed by You, and we want more of You. We also acknowledge that we can’t be changed by the Lord without surrendering every part of our lives to Him first.

Rob shared about a man that brought in a beam a couple days ago, and showed how the beam looks strong and sturdy on the outside, but when you look closer, you can see that it’s actually hollow and rotten inside. This can be seen as a reflection of the current state of our nation now.  We put a lot of importance on what everyone sees on the outside, but what is the state of your heart? How is your spiritual life?  “...For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7

 Rob had a word for the young people to pray from the prophet Samuel: “speak Lord, Your servant is listening.”

On Zoom, it was also echoed that we want to have a listening heart for the Lord. We want to hear from the Lord and give Him the years that we have left on this earth.  There was a picture described during a prayer of us being in a storm, but we were all safe in the ark - yet there were others outside of the ark not safe from the storm.  Lord, show us how we can reach our nation and those around us in these dark times. You are our hope - we pray for revival and surrendered hearts.
