The Glory of God on Cape Cod: May 21, 2008 update
 

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

* *

*" And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the
face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the
boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord in the hope
that they might grope for Him and find Him..." *Acts 17:26

*" But I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I
have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; and they shall be
fruitful and increase ..." *Jeremiah 23:3

Today we discussed the fact that the Lord sovereignly determines the time
and place where we live, for His purposes. He has sovereignly placed all of
us on Cape Cod for such a time like this, and stirred us with the vision for
His glory among us. Just like Israel was scattered all over the world in the
Old Testament, and the Lord gathered them back to Israel in 1948, the Lord
is gathering the scattered fragmented body of Christ and bringing us
together, not only among us here on the Cape but in many pockets across the
globe. As we respond to His initiative and move towards unity in the Holy
Spirit, we prepare ourselves to be a place where His Glory, His manifest
Presence, dwells among us, and the subsequent outbreak of revival.

Let us all respond and call others to respond to His vision for us on the
Cape.

*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,
