Meeting Summary and Update to the Glory of God on Cape Cod, May 31, 2010
 

 

Last Wednesday believers from across Cape Cod gathered to
seek God together, this time at the Cape Cod Bible Alliance Church in Brewster.

After a brief time of worship in Scripture and song, a time
of prayer was given for people to lead out in prayer for the host church. It was a special blessing to have united
intercession for our congregation.

A volume of prayer ascending to the throne of grace could
then be heard as the gathering broke into groups of five or six. In my group
one person prayed: “Lord, thank you for this mission field of Cape Cod.” That is
a reminder that we may tend to focus on the resistance to the Gospel on Cape Cod,
and yet God in His sovereign choice has placed us here.

During the final segment participants came to the
microphone one at a time, often with a Scripture to share and then to offer prayer.
One person noted that Haggai the prophet called the people to right priorities –
they lived in paneled houses while the temple construction project languished. Haggai
1:6 has parallels to the economic decline of our own time in jobs, stocks, and
housing - You have planted much, but have
harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have
your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put
them in a purse with holes in it." And then the change – “So the Lord stirred up the spirit of
Zerubbabel (the King), and the spirit of Joshua the high priest, and the spirit
of all the remnant of the people, and they came and worked on the house of the
Lord their God.: (1:14) May God so
stir our spirits.

You will be receiving an email invitation from Osterville
Baptist Church to the next Glory of God on Cape Cod united prayer meeting on
June 30th, at 7 pm - http://www.ostervillebaptist.org/ If you have not yet attended one I encourage you to do so – you will be
refreshed at the unity of the Spirit of Christ there.
