Confirming Dream: Rain and Rivers!
We wanted to share a powerful and confirming dream from The Prayer-Saturated Church book.
Excerpt from page 31:
God’s desire is that your congregation will be known as a House of Prayer—a habitation for His presence and glory that transcends the walls of your church.
The goal is for prayer to saturate every aspect of the individual and corporate life of the church. In this stage, the whole congregation becomes consumed with a passion for intimacy with Christ that spills over into the entire community.
It’s like the dream the prayer leader at First Baptist in Boerne, Texas shared with me:
“All of a sudden it began to rain in the sanctuary. The people were rejoicing. They didn’t seem to mind the rain at all! As the worship became sweeter and the prayer more fervent, the water kept getting higher and higher. Then someone opened the door and it began to flow out into the street. It touched everything in it’s path—homes, other churches, people without Christ. And everywhere the water flowed, there was life”
I believe it is symbolic of what God is about to do with His House of Prayer. He is calling the church to a place of intimacy with Him. As we respond by inviting the presence of the Lord into our midst, we will see the power of God transform our churches, communities and the world.
