Hey all… I just wanted to post personally about Pioneer Valley House of Prayer, which is a prayer gathering that I blog for as well. It was started earlier this year in my church by some of us “young adults”. A link to that blog is located on the right hand side of this blog page.
Part of why I wanted to blog about it now is because we are gathering tonight at Christ Life Fellowship. The start time is 7:00 p.m. The church is located at 15 Lincoln Street, South Hadley, MA 01075.
Also, for those of you who are not familiar with our gathering, here is a little background info…
Pioneer Valley House of Prayer began back in the winter of 2008. God really stirred our hearts to begin to pray earnestly for the region and to cry out for a deep sense of urgency to be released in the hearts of His children. The Holy Spirit prodded our hearts about the complacency that the Body of Christ currently lives in. We made the decision that we didn’t want to be “lukewarm” (Rev. 3:16) any longer. We asked the Lord to instill a deeper longing and passion than ever before for His purpose to be fulfilled in this region. God faithfully met that request and birthed a desire within us to press forward in a new direction.
God has only given us a portion of the vision for this House of Prayer, but that was just enough to ignite His Holy Fire within us. God is raising up an army of people in this hour that are willing to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thes. 5:17) all over this nation and this world. He has put it in the hearts of His children that there is nothing more important that we could possibly be doing with our time than worshipping Jesus, praying continually and carrying out His will so that His Kingdom might be manifested.
We want to join alongside the Corporate Body of Christ who have labored for years in prayer and continue to build upon that intercession. We gather to “life Him up, that He might draw all men to Himself” (John 12:32) and that we might hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church in this hour.
This nation is in great need of grace and mercy from God that will only be accomplished through intercessory prayer. My prayer is that the many prayer movements going on across this nation will cause God’s people to rise up and take their place. Complacency will be replaced with great BOLDNESS!
I hope I see you all there.
Blessings in the Name of Jesus,
