After 3 weeks of teaching, we have fallen in love with the Lord's Prayer!
It's become easy to see how Jesus gave us, this prayer as a framework for the most effective, passionate, Spirit-led revival prayer we could pray!
He has always wanted revival more than we have, he has always longed for the Church to be awakened in first love, in passion for him and compassion for the world around us-- so to help us get there, he taught us to pray.
The funny thing is we thought his instruction of how to pray was a simple suggestion of a few optional prayer points, or in other traditions, penance for your sins.
But in fact the Lord's Prayer is the motherlode for Spirit-led intercession.
We pray the prayer through, phrase by phrase, expounding each phrase, and watching for the leading of the Spirit, the oil of the Spirit to take us deep. We pray it with an eye on the nation, in an intercessory posture, not thinking of ourselves but crying out for a nation that desperately needs the kingdom of God to come, the Bread of Life to feed us and the full forgiveness of our sins.
Our first RLHOP Lord's Prayer Meeting just launched last Monday and will be taking new members in July.
We believe this will literally become a new movement in the Canadian Church as thousands awaken to the power and anointing on this prayer and begin to use it daily to keep their lives in the fire of revival. Many of course already regularly pray this prayer, but God is unveiling it as a blueprint for revival intercession and it's busting forth in a new way!
We will be running a second course on August 19-20 and launching a second, and third prayer times very soon.
