Dear Emmaus Community-
Here it is October already. The weather is starting to get cooler and the trees are letting go of their leaves. The apples are ready and the cider is amazing. A consolation for summer’s passing.
We are looking forward to the 24 hour prayer vigil that will be held in the DOCK starting October 9th at 6pm and ending at 6pm October 10th. You can sign up on line at www.findlayemmaus.org.
We are doing this to be obedient to God’s Word that says: 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.
Prayer is a powerful thing! It is one of the greatest weapons of our warfare against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual host of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
There is power in community prayer! I remember when I was recovering from surgery and confined pretty much to my living room during waking hours. One morning I was watching out the window, looking at the bird feeders and all the different birds on them. There were Titmouse, yellow finch, cardinals, woodpeckers, house finch and many more. All at once a bully of a blue jay dive bombed at the feeders and drove all the rest of the birds away. He ate- then flew away and all the other birds came back. The Blue Jay did this three or four times and all at once all those different kinds of birds flew in unison at that Blue Jay and chased him all the way back to the creek.
In that moment the Holy Spirit had a conversation with my heart saying: Every time you join brothers and sisters in prayer- this is what you do to Satan! You run him off and reclaim what I have given you!
Please come and join in this prayer vigil, for your family, for health, for peace, for clarity. Most of all to spend time in the Father’s presence!
The prayer vigil will be secure and manned for the full 24 hours.
If we don’t spend much time with Jesus- we won’t be much like Him!
