The Glory of God on Cape Cod: Important Question/Survey, May 15, 2008
 

 My House shall be called house of prayer" * Matthew 21:13

Dear brothers and sisters,

As you know we have heard encouraging reports about what is happening in
various Cape churches as they seek the Lord in prayer. As we hear what is
happening in one area, we, being one body, are exhorted and rejoice in what
the Lord is doing. We also get inspired to seek the Lord to do the same
across the who Cape.

We would like do "take the pulse" of what's happening in the body of Christ
across the Cape, therefore we kindly ask you to respond to this e-mail, and
let us know if you/your family are responding in some measure to the "Cape
Cod Prayer Furnace" call.

Have you/your family been praying (or do you intend to start praying) for
the glory of god in your family, your local church, and your town as
outlined below? Let us know even if you are doing it in some measure, not
necessarily daily for half/hour.

We also would like to hear from the pastors about what is happening in that
regard in their churches, so we can all be exhorted with what the Lord is
doing and we continue on this journey together, for the Glory of God on Cape
Cod.

Thank you for taking the time to respond.

Blessings,

The Glory of God on Cape Cod team.

*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. *
