Thursday night we will have our “5th” Common Grounds. In the fall of last year, I felt the urge to begin this home prayer group. I was unsure what God was up to. I’m still not sure about all the details, but I know enough to follow and listen.
Angela Jackson and Vanessa Perkins, join me as hostesses and we pray and fast in preparation of the meetings. The first time we met, my sweet husband made us two cakes–I had cookies, tea, coffee, lemon water, you name it–it was here! But hardly anyone ate.
As we settled in the living room about an hour after our “get acquainted” time, God began to move and work among us…and He set a pattern for what was to come. Of course, knowing it’s HIS pattern, it is subject to change.
One change we made, we don’t come to eat–we come to share Him. So I encourage you –eat before you get here– 🙂 (grinning) After cooking and preparing for 2 of the meetings, and having no one “want” to eat, we decided to not have food. Coffee and water is provided. Some even bring their own kleenex! (We generally go through the kleenex.)
Each month as I’ve prepared by prayer and study for what He would have me share–He has revealed a truth. I’ve been blown away by HIS awesome power.
Each time we’ve met in my home, God has poured out HIS presence among our hearts and lives as we seek HIM fully–and totally. Tomorrow night we anticipate MORE.
MORE of HIM–MORE of His anointing–His presence. WE WANT ALL HE HAS. We want to move from this place tomorrow night–changed. Re-arranged if necessary. Some of us might need Him to step in and mess up our world. We want to be MORE than just observers….we want to be partakers of ALL HE HAS.
For the FIRST TIME in our meeting history,
we are having a guest speaker:
Missionary Angeline Mhlanga, from Zimbabwe.
We are EXPECTING God to do His great and mighty things among us–as we PRAY and seek HIM with all we have.
We would love to have you join us!
