Need Something to Help You Break Through This Morning? Here it is!

You need this!

Sometimes it can be hard to press through the busy-ness and get to God. This video will help you today and here’s why:

Sometimes during a worship service something changes in the atmosphere and you can hear the sound of heaven! It’s not in the music or even in the words people are saying. It is a palpable change in the spiritual atmosphere and it is as though you were standing in a dry creek bed when all at once the river comes rushing in and you are swept away with God’s Presence.

In this case, we were inching our way into the river throughout the service. Then, it happened! The sound! After a few seconds into this video you can hear the sound. Almost immediately after I stopped recording, everything broke loose!

Liquid Prayers

From Charles Spurgeon, “Treasury of David”
“The Lord has heard the voice of my weeping.” Psalm 6:8
Is there a voice in weeping? Does weeping speak? In what language does it utter its meaning? Why, in that universal tongue which is known and understood in all the earth, and even in Heaven above. When a man weeps, whether he is a Jew or Gentile, Barbarian, Scythian, bond or free — it has the same meaning in it. Weeping is the eloquence of sorrow. It is an eloquent orator, needing no interpreter — but understood by all.
It is sweet to know that our tears are understood, even when words fail. Let us learn to think of tears as liquid prayers, and of weeping as a constant dropping of importunate intercession which will surely wear its way right into the very heart of God’s mercy, despite the stony difficulties which obstruct the way. My God, I will “weep” when I cannot plead, for You hear the voice of my weeping! 1

Here’s the schedule. Please check the times and join me! I will see you there!

Great Reunion!

It was a joy for me to gather with so many of you this morning for our DPP Reunion! If you missed it—you missed it!

I hope you were encouraged, maybe even reminded of some things. I also hope you can see how many other precious people have gone through the project as you have.

Of course, as I have said from the start, the Daily Prayer Project is not a one time class or event, it is an initiation into a community.

In 2018,

  • I hope to develop DPP 2.0 for those who have completed the initial project.
  • I am looking forward to a youth version of the project
  • Looking for our first young adult group
  • Will schedule a spring and fall reunion.

So,

  • be encouraged.
  • Take the DPP again.
  • Look for some of these developments to come about.
  • Participate on the website. (I will soon post a how-to video for those who have struggled with posting on the blog.)

Remember:

  • No guilt
  • Be honest with yourself about your efforts to pray
  • Keep the vision in focus
