Violent Man Prayer

We began something new last night with the youth of Impact.  It was birthed through the Scripture of Matthew 11:12

From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and violent men take it by force.

and also from being fed up with the phone calls, conversations, and results of so many people being torn down by lust, greed, selfishness, and hate.  We went on the offensive last night at 5:30pm.  Last week I cast the vision for this time of prayer.  We would gather in the sanctuary – just the guys – and play loud music and pray.  This wasn’t a time where we stood in a circle holding hands, quietly praying and asking for requests.  This was just as the name describes the group – Violent Man Prayer.

There were 17 guys that came in through our time and joined together in the room.  Some of us paced, some of us lay flat on the floor, others were kneeling.  At times we did all of the above.  This was a group of guys that were hungry for God to do something in the lives of our friends.  Through our time there were words that were shared to the group, cries yelled out to God on behalf of family and friends, repentance for things that have not been pleasing to God, and unity.  It was amazing to see the young men at Impact begin to truly seek God’s face during this time of prayer.

We began this last night.  It will continue for as long as we feel the Holy Spirit leading us to do so.  Join us if you so feel led – Wednesdays at 5:30pm.

And yes, not to exclude the ladies – they meet in the Prayer Center at the same time.  It was great to hear that there were about 7 that came for that as well.

God is stirring up a generation that will boldly proclaim His name to their friends and family – those who will live an uncompromising life for His glory.  Thank you Lord!
