Day 4

We started the morning by turning our eyes to the Lord and praising Him for who He is and all He has done in our lives.  He  praised Him because He reins, has saved us and restored us!  We were reminded that God is attentive.  Attentive means, "paying close attention to something".  God is paying close attention to each of us this week.  

A vision was shared of a battlefield.  We were together in one line with our shields interlocked, united as one as we stood against the enemy.  In Ephesians 6 we read about the Armor of God.
"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.   And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints..."
-Ephesians 6:10-18
We thanked God for the victories we have witnessed this week.  We have been moved into deeper relationship with the Lord and we praised Him for that work.  We were reminded to not forget about the world and those who are lost.  That the Gospel would be ready on our tongue to share the love of Jesus to them.  We are so thankful for God's faithfulness in our own lives and prayed for those who are still waiting to enter into a relationship with Him or haven't heard from Him yet this week.  We asked God to align us with Him.
How marvelous, how wonderful
Is Your love, is Your love!

Below is a note from one of our leaders:
"A woman had shared during staff prayer her vision/dream about the individual flames,  and how the flames were coming together and the Lord had laid on my heart a concern for those who the enemy had/has or is trying to snuff out that flame. And that even when the flame appears to be completely out.....there is an ember.....and by blowing on that ember it starts to glow, the more we blow the brighter the ember glows, and how that re-ignites the flame. Those prayers are the wind blowing on the embers that God uses with the Holy Spirit to ignite the flames."
