During our five day prayer and fasting this year, we were praying for the future of the church in Greenhills. One of our goal last year was to raise 150 new leaders in our church who would start their own Victory groups (small group/bible study groups). The number 150 was conceived because we were looking to add a minimum of 600 new people in church for the year. As of the present, we have raised 80 new leaders in the past six months.
One of our pastors, Ryan, approached me and felt like the Lord was telling him we need to ask for something bigger. Bigger that it seems humanly impossible that we need divine intervention.
It reminded me of the story of Joshua where he asked God to let the sun and the moon to stand still so they could defeat the enemy. That night, I made a SUN STAND STILL prayer before the Lord:
“Lord, give us 10% of the city of San Juan”
It sounds ridiculous knowing that only 5000 people can fit our worship hall on a Sunday but I should not lead with the 5000 people that can fit our church but the 12000 people God wants to bring to our church.
Imagine a city where 1 out of 10 people you meet are disciple Christians. Imagine a city where 10% of its people hold on to a biblical worldview. Imagine 10% of the city reaching the 90% of the city.
Today, I resolve not to pray small prayers. Today I resolve to ask God for things and favor that shows how great, big, powerful and mighty He is.
How about you?
