“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you are a part of it.” 1 Corinthians 12:27 (NIV)
Last Sunday I was at Athens Church, praying during the first service. Toward the end they took time to bless, and pray for Watkinsville First Baptist Church, specifically Carlos Sibley! It was absolutely beautiful to hear Sean Seay bless Carlos! And it wasn’t a rushed, or token blessing. It was very deep, meaningful and sincere! And I believe it has had a powerful impact in the atmosphere of our city!
Take time this weekend to bless the other churches in our city, and specifically the senior pastors! Ask God to help you make this part of your prayer life! Call these pastors (and churches) out by name before the Lord, asking Him to strengthen and empower them to preach and lead their congregations into revival, into growth and maturity, into local and global mission. Pray that God would bless and grow their churches, dramatically. Pray that these churches would experience powerful breakthroughs and begin to see ‘suddenlies’ happening in their midst. Ask God to release miracles, restoration, finances, and bring back prodigals! Thank the Lord for the unity He has brought in our city and ask Him to increase it, even seven-fold!
