The Critical Piece for 2021

Posted: Jan 28, 2021

The end of December, I spent time asking God for a vision of what He wanted us to focus on for 2021. I didn’t ask for or expect a plan as we’re expected to walk by faith. This is what He gave me:

“Prayer will be critical this year.”

All it takes is five minutes watching the news or flipping through the toxic mire that social media has become to know that Satan has taken wide swaths of society and is conquering more with increasing velocity. The church? He’s steamrolled and divided it with ease.

All these with one accord were devoting themselves to prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers.
Acts 1:14

Prayer is our most powerful weapon. We’re at the point in this War of the Ages that if the church doesn’t take up the mantle of a house of prayer it will implode with the rest of the country.

 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
Acts 2:42

In response to God’s imperative, we’ve been upping our game here at Blazing Grace. Our team begins every morning with prayer. Sandy and Bekah, our two prayer warriors, pray together again once a day. We have wives prayer meetings in the evenings. I’m going away on a 2-day retreat alone in the desert to focus on prayer shortly.

We just set up a Zoom account and will soon be offering a weekly Zoom prayer call for anyone who wants to join us in prayer. We’ll pray for each other, our churches, and our countries. This for anyone whether in or outside the US so please feel free to join us if you live outside of the US.

I’m also looking at having a weekly prayer meeting here at our office in Chandler, Arizona.

If you’re interested in participating in the Zoom call or our weekly meeting at the office in Arizona, please contact us. We haven’t set the day and times yet and want to get a feel for how many of you might be interested in participating first.

I want to challenge you to go to the leadership of your church and encourage them to spend time in prayer during the weekend services. We need this desperately.

these I will bring to my holy mountain,
and make them joyful in my house of prayer;
their burnt offerings and their sacrifices
will be accepted on my altar;
for my house shall be called a house of prayer
for all peoples.
Isaiah 56:7
