HOW PEOPLE EXPERIENCED 24/7 PRAYER
We invited participants to tell us about their experience during the 24/7 prayer week. Here is just a small selection of the responses we received:
“My hour flew by as I learned it is good to do nothing but listen and talk with God.”
“These rooms express God’s heart.”
“I could not get enough of the LORD Jesus.”
“[I experienced a] renewing of my mind and perspective on the sovereignty of the Lord, and a newfound sense of true peace with no fear.”
“As soon as I walked into room one, I was overcome by emotion. My family just received an answer to prayer, and I had not made enough time or space to express my gratitude to my heavenly Father.”
“24/7 prayer may have changed how I pray for the rest of my life. It was like the Spirit was here, waiting for me, and eager to lead me in prayer.”
“It was awesome. The rooms are beautiful and inspiring! Please make it a yearly event! Thank you!!! It was my first time to pray for one hour!!!
“[I loved] the experience of sharing with my daughters in prayer, learning to draw close to them and seeing how the Lord Jesus moves through us.”
“As I worshiped, prayed, danced and waved banners in the sanctuary, I sensed God saying over his people—I wave a banner over YOU to let the world know you are mine. And to Bethel, God says, “My banner over you is LOVE” (Song of Songs 2:4).
“Let’s keep praying that next year we will have every room filled with prayer warriors!”
Some common themes we heard from participants were: “I really enjoyed being in God’s presence,” and “the time went by so quickly.”
I will be sharing more of the remarkable results of our 24/7 prayer week during worship on Sunday. If you have anything you would like to share, please contact one of the organizers (Cathy Ferchau, Adrienne Kelsey, Kevin Magnes, or myself).—Pastor Tom
