The Glory of God on Cape Cod: April 9, 2008 update
 

 *"We speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God
destined for our glory before time began....however, as it is written :'No
eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared
for those who love Him, but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit. The
Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God......we have not
received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may
understand what God has freely given us..." *1 Cor. 2: 7,9,12

Today again, pastors and leaders from across the Cape and from diverse
denominational backgrounds, met to pray for the vision that the Lord
deposited in our hearts, a vision for His Glory in our midst with the
subsequent outbreak of revival.

As we respond to the Lord's call to pray in our homes and in our churches, *God
begins to reveal things to us in the place of prayer*. By His Holy Spirit He
opens our spiritual eyes and ears, and gives us illumination and greater
revelation about *who He is, His great affection for us, His great desire to
dwell among us in His Manifest Presence, and His desire to be glorified in
our midst.* It is in the place of prayer we are able to listen to His
heartbeat, follow His leading and obey His direction. *God's desire to
reveal Himself and His heart to us far exceeds ours*, and it is in the place
of prayer that we receive revelation from Him.

We are encouraged to hear that some pastors are disseminating the *Cape Cod
Prayer Furnace* vision to their congregations, some printing it and
including it in the Sunday bulletin...etc.

*Cape Cod Prayer Furnace:*

Let us all resolve to:

*I. Make every Christian home in your church a house of prayer*. Let every
Christian home on Cape Cod commit to praying half an hour a day specifically
that :

a. The Lord would pour His Spirit on us and our families, that His Presence
would fill our lives (The disciples in the book of Acts were filled many
times, not just once), and that the Presence and Glory of God would fill our
homes.

b. The Lord would pour out His Spirit on your church, that the Presence and
the Glory of God would fill your church where you attend and all the
churches of Cape Cod.

c. The Lord would pour out His Spirit on your town where you live, that He
would bring multitudes to His Kingdom in your town and all over the Cape.

*II. Make every Christian church on the Cape a house a prayer.* If your
church has a vibrant, well-attended prayer meeting, praise God. If not, we
encourage you to start one. Jesus said that the church is a house of prayer,
not only a house of fellowship and preaching/teaching (though of course
these are biblical mandates as well).

We want fervent prayers ascending to the throne of God from every Christian
home and every Christian church on Cape Cod unceasingly; like the widow of
Luke 18:3, until we experience His Glory/manifest Presence in our midst and
the subsequent outbreak of revival.

*III. We further sense that every church would focus its corporate prayer
meeting on praying for the town it is in*; that the Lord would pour out His
Spirit on that particular town and bring multitudes to His Kingdom. This way
we would be building the broken walls of the Cape in a Nehemiah-like
fashion, side by side, town by town. Let us together disseminate this vision
of a Cape Cod Prayer Furnace that asks, seeks, and knocks on heaven's door
for His Glory in our midst and the subsequent outbreak of revival.

Blessings,
