Praying for Boston

As we pray for Boston, the victims of this senseless tragedy and the families of those who have been affected, I am also praying for believers, particularly those who walk in the Ascension gift offices.

Truthfully, we are too often caught off guard and end up praying for tragedies AFTER they happen, when we should be spiritually tuned enough to see them coming and intercede proactively.

Amos 3:6-8 says "Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it? Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord God hath spoken, who can but prophesy?"

God's word is true. He cannot lie. If we would seek God as true watchmen, He will warn us of these things. Intercession is meant to be proactive, not reactive.

With that, I am examining myself... my own worship and accountability as a prophet of God. Is my ear readily available to the Father? Is my worship consistent enough? Am I spending too much time in prayer talking, but not listening?

ORDER IN THE CHURCH! And let it begin with me!
