I prayed against physical and spiritual barrenness in our lives. Felt a sense that God wanted us free from every form of barrenness. We prayed for our families and relationships against physical, relational barrenness that prevent us from producing fruits for God’s kingdom.
Scriptures we stood on for these prayers include:
Gen 25:21, Deu 7: 13-15, Psa 113:9 , Isa 54:1
- Erica shared - While praying for the facility prayed that it would be a home, a home where people that spiritually or physically homeless can come and feel a sense of warmth and family. I took these words to heart as it resonated with the flavor of Liberty -freedom.
- Scott shared - Isa 35:8 And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Way of Holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it. It shall belong to those who walk on the way; even if they are fools, they shall not go astray. No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast come upon it; they shall not be found there, but the redeemed shall walk there. And the ransomed of the LORD shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
- Wade shared about seeing tributaries feeding into the river and he noticed that those with dirty waters were mudding the waters. Felt that there are some relationships that we might need to cut off so that we can grow and produce. These relationships are often a source of barrenness in our lives. -
- A building in Kanata - I saw a big bold Lighthouse shining brightly over Kanata. I feel like I saw a shopping centre or some centre in the vicinity but not 100% sure.
- Cynthia Adea shared – Matt 12: 46-50 Sharing the need to prefer our church family, even more than our biological family. Saying how God has been making her see that her church family was truly her most important family and to prefer it above all else. As an example, she linked this with preferring to celebrate New Year with the church than the traditional celebration with her family.
