The God of Grace
Creator God, We Humbly Bow to Your Majesty, Be Enthroned in Our Midst!
One day spent in your house, this beautiful place of worship, beats thousands spent on Greek island beaches. I'd rather scrub floors in the house of my God than be honored as a guest in the palace of sin. All sunshine and sovereign is God, generous in gifts and glory. He doesn't scrimp with his traveling companions. It's smooth sailing all the way with God-of-the-Angel-Armies. Ps. 84:10-12 (MSG)
Guest worship leaders Brian and Ramey Whalen opened up by inviting God’s Presence, and we flowed in the River of revelatory worship, going deeper and flying higher, in wave after wave of His Goodness.
New levels of activation in the power of God in our lives released as we walk in the image of God. Following David in his role as king, prophet and priest, we , as repentant sinners, need to rush to His Presence. We need to prepare a place for Him, a place in our hearts and in our lives where we acknowledge His Sovereignty as the only true King. We need to carry the Ark of His Presence on our shoulders as the priests of the Lord. And we need to acknowledge the Lord as the Creator of all things, the King of Glory! The creative anointing is key in establishing God’s kingdom in the earth today. The law of first mention in Gen 1: God created!
Even in this time of chaos, the Lord is hovering over the earth, and we will see a time of stillness and great victory. We will rise above the chaos!
Spirit of prophecy released upon each person, especially through the gateways of creativity and imagination.
Words of knowledge were released in this atmosphere.
Waters of God healing digestive and sinus conditions while people soaked in His presence.
We re-consecrate the gates of our minds. We invite the Holy Spirit to reach into our imaginations, to hover and shake things up. Take us where You want us to go! We ask the Holy Spirit to give us new expressions of worship. Give us new expressions of worship to release into the earth. Creativity, productivity, spirit of prophecy - release, release!

Jehovah Shammah—The Lord is There – with us everywhere (Ez. 48:35)
Jehovah Sabaoth—The Lord of Hosts, Captain of Armies, our Protector (Josh 5:14, Ps 24:10)
We pray for the release of God’s grace on America, on Israel, the Church and the nations! We acknowledge that we are weak and totally dependent on You! We abide under the Shadow of Your Wings and in Your Presence, we fly!
