The Breath of God

Why is the church so powerless? How can it return to the Power of the Book of Acts? As an itinerant evangelist, my heart is both excited and broken. I have the wonderful opportunity to preach in some of the greatest churches in America. On the other hand, I have seen the aftermath of Ichabod (the glory has departed). What can be done?

How can we pray most effectively about our churches and their worship services? In Acts 2:1-21, the dominant force is the Holy Spirit. When He breathed on them "as a rushing mighty wind", it changed everything. So I want us to learn how to pray specifically for the breath of God. Pray weekly for The:

DIRECTION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit’s Guidance and direction in our decisions for our Worship Services, Sunday School and ministries as we prepare: For every leader, preacher and teacher in our church

REVELATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
To illuminate our mind to His Word including teachers and students, preachers and congregation
 
ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Supernatural power for teachers and preachers in delivery of His Word - The Holy Spirit on them.

CONVICTION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

The working, drawing and compelling of the Holy Spirit in the heart of all who hear His Word on the church campus.
 
ENABLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Empowering of all who hear His Word to be receptive and to boldly respond to God’s Word with immediate obedience.
