This morning felt good getting it all out there. We began a conversation called 'Spiritual Activism' aka prayer. I made a few big statements.
1. "I'm done with prayer" I'm done with the end goal being pray, getting caught up in ticking the box, putting in the time and going the distance. I'm desperate however to connect to the living God through prayer.
2. "I'm done with doin Church". I can't live without seeing God come and bring life change. I'm desperate for people to come into our community of faith and relationally connect with God, I'm desperate for the young people who show up at the Vineyard on a Friday night to know God in a real relationship and experience the Kingdom not religion.
1 Kings 18:36 At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed:
Desperation calls for us to step up in the time of sacrifice and pray knowing God hears, listens and answers.
Are you desperate?
