I have never been so excited with anticipation about what God is going to do through the lives of the people of Generation Church. Today we start a 30 day journey of prayer and fasting that leads up to Generation Church re-launching in a brand new location on April 17th 2011.
The path that God has taken us on over the last two months has been almost un-real! I remember the day I felt God say, ‘Check on the availability of the Movie Theater!’ Now we start the home stretch to actually calling that place home! The two months in between have been filled with miracles, blessings and incredible favor from God.
Only God could have made this possible! In fact Generation Church wouldn’t even exist without the awesome mighty hand of our God.
So today we start praying and fasting. First up is praying for our local schools. I believe this upcoming generation has the potential to become greater than my generation, my fathers generation and my grandfather’s generation combined. Yet, if we as a church don’t lead them on the right paths that greatness will be wasted on things that will be here today and gone tomorrow, instead of the eternal difference they can make.
Our schools are the primary source, outside of home environments that shape our kids lives. This is why prayer is so important for our schools! I’m especially praying for William Paca/Old Post Road Elementary today as this is the place we have been meeting as a church since we began at the end of last year and have a great relationship with the staff there.
On the fasting side, I start seven days of fasting ‘noise’ in my life. My day today will be non-stop until about 10pm tonight. I’m taking an hour lunch today which I will fast all noise. My cell phone will be off, no computers, no ipad, no ipod. Just silence. Trust me; this is not easy for me to do! Hoping to hear God in the silence.
