What an extraordinary day at the Cornerstone! The power and presence of the Lord were so evident. The music and prayers and Bible readings all combined in almost perfect unison. I experienced tremendous freedom in the Spirit as I preached the Word. Jesus Christ was lifted high. OK, so that's a normal Sunday worship gathering at the Cornerstone. So, what was extraordinary?
After the sermon, we all prayed for each other. We prayed for a revival fire. We took our place as priests of God (1 Peter 2:5, 9), interceding for the people of God. We boldly bowed before the throne of grace and asked for help in our time of need. As I surveyed the room, everywhere I looked, men and women, students, everyone, was either praying or being prayed for.
I believe the Lord loved what happened today. I wish I could say it was a carefully planned application of the sermon, but it was actually spontaneous. The instructions sort of came gushing out of my mouth, "Let's each pray for each other. Let's pray for the Lord to rekindle our first love for him. Let's ask him to give us a white hot love for Jesus."
Time will tell, but I believe he will answer our prayers. We will become a revival generation. Let's keep praying. Let's do what Jesus told us to do in Luke 18: pray and don't lose heart. (Why not join us at our weekly prayer meeting, Wednesday, 7:00 pm.)
What an extraordinary day! God is great!
