It is a historic year for our movement. At Foursquare Connection 2019, May 27-30 in Nashville, Tenn., the convention body will elect a new Foursquare president. Clearly, there has been much prayer and focus on this election for months now. What an exciting time before us! A time that calls for increased prayer and intercession.
As incredibly important as the election of our new president is, our theme, “Restored by Jesus,” is also significant. Let’s keep this theme in the forefront of our prayers. My personal prayer is that we will step into the Lord’s presence in such a way that the restorative power of God will wash over us. Let our number one expectation be for Jesus!
I live in Nashville, the music capital of the world. A specific sound is rising, not just in secular realms, but in worship, as well. I believe a sound with breaker anointing and power to tear down strongholds is being released in the church. However, it’s not just a musical sound. It’s the sound of authority rising from believers. I am convinced there is no greater sound than the voice of a believer who knows who they are in Christ.
As Connection 2019 draws near and culminates with our family being together in Nashville, let’s author light in our prayer and worship to the Lord. First of all, let’s be intentional to present ourselves as a living sacrifice unto the Lord. Second, let’s ask God and believe for the miraculous to be released in our midst. And last, as authors of light, let’s declare the Word of God over The Foursquare Church. Here are some specific topics and scriptures I hope you’ll join me in declaring:
“If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place” (2 Chron.7:14-15, NIV).
“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord” (Acts 3:19, NIV).
“Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours” (Isa. 61:7, NIV).
“‘But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the Lord” (Jer. 30:17, NIV).
“Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal My people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security” (Jer. 33:6, NIV).
My personal prayer is that we will step into the Lord’s presence in such a way that the restorative power of God will wash over us. Let our number one expectation be for Jesus!
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Rom. 15:13, NIV).
“Then, after doing all those things, I will pour out My Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions. In those days I will pour out My Spirit even on servants—men and women alike” (Joel 2:28-29, NLT).
