Hello my dear friends,
I hope that your new year has been wonderful thus far. I am so excited to see the year 2013 and I am expectant for all that God will do! I wanted to come to you to share a project that I’m facilitating this coming week called Draw Me Nearer.
For the past month, God has been placing people in my life who are looking for Him. They’ve grown up knowing Him but at some point, their relationship with Him has fallen off or for some, it never started. They’ve been lacking intimacy in their relationship with Him and they need revival. So, I asked God to help me really help people to know Him the way that I’ve gotten to know Him. For them to feel the Spirit stir inside them when they pray and worship. For them to hunger and thirst for Him to the point that it hurts. For them to be so in love that they just want to sit at His feet and pour their love on Him like oil. Intimacy is what I desire for them.
O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary. Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. – Psalms 63:1-3 KJV
Last week while praying via telephone with some friends in Maryland, God gave me an idea. The idea was to facilitate a 7-day project where participants would intentionally seek God by fasting from media and committing to studying a topic or book of the Bible, praying in the morning as well as through the day, writing in journals and joining prayer calls. He also gave me the idea to gather a group of my friends who have a gift for intercession to fervently pray over the project, as well as each participant. Thus, Draw Me Nearer was born. I am excited because in the last 7 days, over 60 people from 4 countries and on 3 different continents have signed up. People who barely know God to those who have been walking with Him for years. People desire intimacy and a real knowledge of who God is, and it’s beautiful! The journey starts on Sunday, January 6th and I know that God is going to move in a mighty way. We’ve been praying that we would encounter Him in a way that we never have before. I thank God for giving me the ideas as well as the resources to make this happen and I feel so very blessed to be used.
If you desire to cut out distractions and want deeper intimacy in your relationship with Christ, this might be something for you! If you would like to join in, simply fill out this form and I’ll be glad to e-mail you the details that you need to join in. This is for anyone who desires a closer walk with Christ.
I ask that you all would keep me as well as the project and each participant in heavy prayer, that the Lord’s will would be done and that He would show Himself mighty and strong in the lives of us all this coming week.
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. – Jeremiah 29:13 KJV
