Freedom Songs

Jessie Flowers Awakening, Prayer Leave a Comment

Free hearts cause overflow in free mouths that produce free songs. These true freedom songs shake foundations and bring freedom to the world around them. It starts on the inside first. Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks (Luke 6:45). External circumstances will never fully produce the freedom we all long for. That freedom is found in Christ alone and happens first within us. Then, next, it flows from us. Creation is groaning and awaiting the children of God to be revealed. What song are we singing?

David’s Tabernacle: Building Altars of Prayer and Worship in Our Cities

Michael Thornton Awakening, Prayer Leave a Comment

If David’s harp drove demons out of the King, then why can’t someone’s guitar played for God drive out evil forces over cities? It’s time to build altars of unending altars of worship & prayer in our homes, communities, and cities.

A Prayer for Mending

Jesus, show us the way because we can’t see. We look through a glass dimly. Jesus, You are the way. Help us walk so close to You that we smell like You, that we look like You, that we become like You. Teach us Your ways so that our own ways die. Teach us Your Truth, so that it overpowers the tricky schemes of spite and bitterness. Your ways are above our ways, so we lay ours down. We say, “We don’t know what we’re doing. Help us.”

Social Distancing Prayer Adventures

Now that my 4-year-old was finished eating the parts of her sandwich that weren’t smeared on her face or lost in the recesses of her carseat, I invited her to join me in praying.
This was a strategic moment. We were inviting the power and presence of God into our community. I could model apostolic prayer for her. This was especially important since we have been going on walks in our neighborhood and I have been talking to her about praying for our neighbors. This was her chance to join Daddy in something that he enjoys, and for me to put my money where my discipling mouth is. I was gonna be an awesome dad.”
