The Glory of God on Cape Cod: March 26, 2008 update
 

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

*" Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not
lose heart, saying: "There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear
God nor regard man. Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him,
saying, 'Get justice for me from my adversary.' And he would not for a
while; but afterward he said within himself, 'Though I do not fear God nor
regard man, yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest*
*by her continual coming she weary me.' Then the Lord said, 'Hear what the
unjust judge said. And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day
and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will
avenge them speedily."* Luke 18: 1-8

Today we again discussed what the Lord put on our hearts with respect to
prayer, what we call the *Cape Cod Prayer Furnace.*
**
The above parable has many wonderful application for our personal prayer
life, but it also has another application for our corporate prayers as the
body of Christ. The widow represents the body of Christ crying out
persistently for His Glory in our midst, and the subsequent outbreak of
revival.
It's our cry to Him *"Why should the nations say where is you God?" *Joel 2.

*Our next step: *
**
We strongly feel the Lord leading us now to encourage the birth of prayer
meetings across the Cape in every Christian home and every Christian church.
We are calling for a *Cape Cod Prayer Furnace:*
**

Let us all as the body of Christ on Cape Cod 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,
