A PLEA TO THE INTERCESSORS: “DON’T FORGET EVANGELISM”

December 29, 2020

disclaimer: The title of this blog may seem pretty harsh. Let me preface it by clearly stating that this is in no way a rebuke. I wouldn’t dare assume that I am in the position to do so as I myself have only been a part of this awe-inspiring prayer movement for 6 months (If you don’t know, there is a massive movement of night-and-day prayer and worship that is sweeping the globe at an unprecedented rate). I am speaking from the perspective of a total newbie, but also someone who is totally bought in, serving full time in a prayer room, and giving myself to God’s purposes for night-and-day prayer to sweep the earth. Everything I have written is based on the Holy Spirit’s conviction in my own life. It is with this heart I feel the urge to write the following. So… sweaty palms and all…    The disconnect I’ve heard statistics on the global prayer movement that are absolutely mind boggling. Since 1999 the world has seen a steady increase of places of unceasing worship and prayer, from just a known handful to thousands worldwide. That’s amazing. Surely all of this momentum in prayer would mean more people coming to Christ. Right? Sadly, this is not the case. In western society not only do statistics show a huge decrease in Christian conversion rates, but believers are actually leaving the church in droves. Don’t believe me? Just google “Christianity in America.” My point in highlighting this isn’t to say that prayer is unnecessary in the salvation of souls. On the contrary, I believe it is absolutely essential....

Local Outreach – Chattahoochee Valley

November 25, 2020

The month of November, we had a Thanksgiving Food Drive through Harvest Coffee Co. Through the food and monetary gifts that we received, we were able to box up 74 big boxes of food for families in Columbus, GA and Phenix City, AL and distribute them in neighborhoods on Saturday November 21st. We sent out 5 teams of believers from all over the city who went out together to minister the Gospel and feed hungry families. Before we left, we prayed that the Lord would send us to just the right people. The Lord delivered in no time! We had SO MANY powerful encounters! Of the testimonies we heard, one woman rededicated her life to Christ! 5 people were physically healed! 99 people were impacted across the Chattahoochee Valley! Men, women, and children were encouraged that we went out to pray for them and offer them food for thanksgiving. We cannot wait to go back out next month on Saturday December 19th and see what more the Lord has in store. If you would like to go out with us, please email...

PRAYER UNTO REVIVAL



Brownsville Not long after I first came to the Lord I heard the testimony of Steve Hill, a former crack addict who came to Christ and was used to usher in a 7 year revival in Pensacola, Florida, at a church called Brownsville Assembly of God. Over a million people came through their doors through this timeframe as people from all over the world gathered daily to experience the tangible presence of God. It began in 1995 when Steve was invited to preach a sermon on Father’s Day. What was supposed to be a quick sermon with an early dismissal, turned into an altar call where the power of God fell and the service ran into the evening. It was game over after that; revival had broken out. From that moment on I became obsessed with this thing called “revival.” It fascinated me that Steve Hill was a former drug addict like myself and God used him in such a powerful way. I started to study revival history and found Brownsville to be just one revival in a vast multitude of others. The Moravian Revival of the 18th century, for instance, initiated a century-long, round-the-clock prayer meeting and launched missionary movements all over the world. The Azusa Street Revival went on for 3 years and ushered in the fastest-growing segment of Christianity today—with an estimated 600 million adherents worldwide! Revival Unto Transformation Something that quickly fascinated me was the social repercussions that immediately occurred in these cities where revival broke out. For example, check out this account of the Welsh Revival of 1904 through the eyes of a witness...

Redeem – Reuniting Family

November 23, 2020

19 year old girl is reunited with her son and family for thanksgiving this year. Right before the holidays, our team was able to help a young girl that had been arrested along with others who we believe were trafficking her across state lines. Our team was able to minister to her and even have women in our coffee shop pray over her! As we were walking away, she told me, “I still feel power flowing through my body”. Through the weekend we saw her light up with JOY and worship God. We were able to get her into a safe place to rest and then send her back home to reunite with her two year old son and family! We believe God has big things in store for her in the future and will plan to stay in touch with her as she begins her journey of wholeness.  If you would like to get involved with helping women out of trafficking, sign up on our...

Cindy – Once Broken, Now Redeemed

November 1, 2020

The day I met Cindy I knew God had a special plan for her life. Little did I know that the journey ahead of us would be one of both heartbreaking and joy-filled moments.   First Meeting Cindy I remember it clearly, the day we picked up Cindy from the Burger King downtown. This spunky small blonde girl with all her stuff in trash bags greeted us with a spark of hope in her eyes. She stayed with me in my apartment for three nights since we didn’t have a safe house at that time. During those three days, we shared our hearts and worshiped together for hours. I remember her weeping and encountering the Lord in such a radical way as I sang Reckless Love over her. I began to watch her destiny come to life. She was ministering to others at DRC, healing the sick, and ALWAYS praying. She was and still does live out the scripture “pray continuously” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).    The Next Couple of Years The next couple years, I saw her fall.. yet my belief in her destiny never quivered. I KNEW deep down she had roots that wouldn’t let the world win. Though Cindy would fall, she would get back up again. I remember getting calls from her in jail. Cindy was having a hard time sleeping; we’d pray and sing Reckless Love together, both with tears streaming. God ALWAYS met Cindy and loved her tenderly where she was. I remember her connecting me with countless women in the jail with her, and I was able to help them because of her....

TAKE THE CITY outreaches have been so special to me. I love being able to see the hand of GOD move in peoples lives as they are healed and families restored. GOD cares about every detail of our lives and he reaches the places that only HE can only heal! Its been an honor to see all the teams go out and share the LOVE that GOD has instilled and filled the teams with, and let it pour out to all the community. Having physical needs met also assures all we encounter, the faithfulness of our Father. So many times I have cried seeing what GOD is doing… Being able to see people brought into the KINGDOM and freedom Spirit, Soul, Mind and Body. Is the greatest treasure in my life. I am grateful for TAKE THE CITY allowing me to have front seat and seeing GOD move in peoples lives!
