Report on the September GOGCC Worship and Prayer Gathering at Drummer Boy Park

by The GOGCC team on September 27, 2022

Dear friends,

Last week on Sunday 9/18/22, believers from different churches, denominations, ethnic backgrounds, and generations, gathered together at Drummer Boy Park in Brewster for a time of united worship and prayer.

The gathering started with pastor Steve Trudel of Cape Cod Bible Alliance Church welcoming the people present and opening in prayer, followed by an extended time of anointed worship by pastor Rob Cumming.

Newton Jordao, a young leader from IPR Cape Cod Church in Hyannis, shared a powerful word entitled, "The Cry that Moves God".

"The people of Israel groaned because of their slavery and cried out for help. Their cry...came up to God, and God heard their groaning, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob." (Exodus 2:23-24).

Newton reminded us that it's not the volume of our cry that God hears, but the honesty of our hearts (our groanings) as we pray. He used an analogy of himself as a parent, he is able to distiguish between his 2 year old son's cries that are serious, which requires immediate attention, and the cries and are not so serious, in which he knows his son is basically ok.

He reminded us that there are some prayers that can only truly be expresssed with loud cries and groanings:

"Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to Him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his godly fear." (Hebrews 5:7)

We were reminded that Jesus is our High Priest in heaven, interceding for us, and He calls us His Royal Priesthood
(1 Peter 2:9), and inviting us to join Him in prayer and intercession for the Church. God hears our groans as we do, and responds.

The question for us is this: How badly do we need the glory of God in our midst? How badly do we need revival? Are we Ok without it?

Newton closed by sharing a powerful relevant story from the history of the Salvation Army, where some people were laboring for a couple of years in a specific city but weren't seeing any results. They became discouraged and wanted to leave. They wrote a letter to William Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army, explaining what was happening and asking to be relocated to a different city. His response was a telegram with two words: Try Tears.

This was followed by a time of pastors leading in prayer in reponse to Newton's word. This time was mingled with worship songs and was facilitated by pastor Mike Allen of Lighthouse Christian Fellowship in Sandwich. During the pastors prayer time, pastor Myron Heckman, a key leader in the GOGCC movement and currently an interium pastor in New Hampshire, was prompted to lead the gathering in a united cry for revival on Cape Cod.

This was followed by a time of small group prayer where the prayer theme was to give the body of Christ the gift of tears and pour on us the spirit of prayer and intercession:

"I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and supplication..."
(Zechariah 12:10)

Ryan Teager, a young leader from Cape Cod Bible Alliance Church in Brewster, closed us in prayer.

It was a wonderful time with beautiful weather and a weet sense of the presence of the Lord throughout the gathering.
