This past weekend, I had the pleasure of joining in with the good folks from The Burn Oklahoma City for 24 hours of worship, prayer, fasting and contending together for our city, our nation, ourselves and for the body of Christ.
It was a pretty awesome event that left me hungering for more. We had some really sweet times of worship and prayer.
I had the opportunity to grab the mic a couple times and speak forth (more like whimper) a prayer that God had burning on my heart, only to stumble back to my seat in tears, completely broken and thankful for what God was doing.
Pro 13:12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But [when] the desire comes, [it is] a tree of life.
I had been praying for a while for 24/7 prayer to break forth in Oklahoma City. For the longest time, it seemed like OKC was the only major city not to be hit by the prayer movement. There is much work to be done in the realm of intercession for this city. I couldn’t help but notice at least four ambulances drive by our location downtown during the 18 hours I spent there. But even more distressing than that is the spiritual condition of the city.
