Today, I spoke with Pastor Cornel Boingeanu of Romania regarding the prayer revival we will be a part of next week. It is a tremendous blessing to serve the nation of Romania in uniting the pastors and people in worshipping God through prayer. The student choir from Prestonwood Church will help lead in worship along side a praise team from Romania.
As I discussed the times of praying together in this wonderful evening we agreed that our brothers and sisters from Romania would pray in Romanian and we would pray in English without translation. Although these prayers will not be discernable by many of us, they will be discernable by God.
I am reminded of the day of Pentacost. The people of all nations were together in one accord and the Holy Spirit enabled the disciples to speak the languages of the nations in order to advance the good news of Jesus Christ. There is something very powerful about united, believing prayer. The Holy Spirit waits for the body of Christ to unite in believing prayer to move in mighty, miraculous and new ways.
Throughout history, all great spiritual awakenings were preceded and sustained by united, believing prayer. Only the Lord knows what He awaits to unleash for Romania, the US, and the nations of the earth as we come together and pray.
Prayer is an issue of faith where many of us go horizontal and tell others of all of our trials and tribulations, while we should be going together vertically to a God who is able to meet our every need. It seems that now, more than ever, with such great despair, anxiety, and hopelessness in our nation and around the globe that the bride of Christ, the church, called by God, a house of prayer, should lift their voices to the Great I Am that I Am. I am Able, I am with you, I am your Sustainer, I am your Provider, I am your Healer, I am the Way, and I am your All in All.
May we each seek God’s face daily without ceasing, but may we also pray for spiritual leaders across our land to call us together in united, believing prayer. I am grateful for the spiritual leadership of these Romanian pastors who are coming together by faith to call on a great God to bring an awakening to their land.
May God grant us this same sense of urgency to stop and pray and seek God’s face for the revival of His church and the restoration of our land. God is waiting to move in new and miraculous ways. We have not, because we do not ask in united, believing prayer.
