Starting a Prayer Movement-Part 2

Updated on August 8, 2015

As I walk the streets of Old Town, Maine, I have come to one conclusion. There are a lot of streets. And it’s not like Old Town is a big city. One night, God brought me into the cemetery near my home. Now you might be thinking, this is an odd place to go and do a prayer walk. I would agree with you. But, I've come to realize that I shouldn’t second guess God. As I walked around, I prayed for the prayer movement - for God to raise up intercessors for Old Town. God had me pray for the city to become ALIVE. So now the cemetery doesn’t sound so odd after all. As I write this, I’m reminded of Ezekiel 37:1-14, a passage where God brought bones to life! If He is planning on this for Israel, why not Old Town? Why not the city or town that you live in?

A couple of blogs ago, I wrote the first in a series of blogs about starting a prayer movement. Guess what, this is part two! As I continue to pray, I keep thinking of things I should be doing. Now, if only I can find the time to complete what I’m doing! :)

If My People

Here are more thoughts on starting a prayer movement:

  • C-Rev: This is a new organization in the state of Maine committed to doing our part in bringing revival to Maine and New England. I recently joined the team as a volunteer staff, Development Officer. I write about it here because if you can join an organization that shares your vision of the importance of prayer, it is going to help start a prayer movement. C-Rev believes that prayer is essential for revival and since that is ultimately what I want, I joined them to help their efforts and they are helping mine here in Old Town.

  • United Baptist Church: This is one of those things I have just been recently thinking about. UBC is my church in Old Town and I want their backing of what I’m doing. This will take time and in some ways I have already started. I have let my Pastors know and I have been on prayer walks or have prayer walks scheduled with other members of my church. My goal isn’t just to have every street in Old Town prayer prayer walked, but to start a prayer movement in all the towns in Maine for revival - including your town. I’m even willing to repeat streets if it means that others are joining me in this effort.

  • No Compromise: This suggestion came from one of my readers. We are praying for something that God wants to happen. God made the plan of salvation, not humans. The basic teachings of the Bible should never be compromised by religion, the teachings of man, political correctness and the busyness and cares of this world because the Gospel isn’t man made, but made by God and we need to trust that God knows what he is doing. It's all about the Cross and spreading that Good News (the Gospel).

  • Prayer: There is nothing as important as praying! Pray for the goal of revival and for intercessors to join the team that's praying for YOUR city or town. There are so many things that can get in the way when God wants us to stop and pray - when we feel we need to and even when we don't feel like it. I ask that you pray for me as I try to find the time to pray and invite others to pray with me for Old Town. I have a busy life with family, work, and church. I could really use your prayers.

  • Get the Word Out: One reason why I write this blog is to get the word out on how important prayer is to God’s mission. And I hope that you, the reader will be praying for me early and often. One thing I plan on doing is to contact the local Christian radio station to see if I can come in for their Missions in Your Backyard Program. I also use social media to share prayer questions and to get the word out.

  • Prayer: I can’t stress this enough. Please pray early and often for me, my family, my church, my organization, my community - and for revival to come to our land.

  • Your Thoughts: Are you trying to start a prayer movement? Want to start one? Let’s help each other out because revival will change our nation.

Revival from here to the nation.

Here’s a bonus thought: Pray for workers to come join the harvest. You might be an intercessor or you might be an evangelist. Both are needed and both need to do the work of the other. So, get out there and pray. Early and often. And share your faith with others.

God is going to do something amazing! Are you ready?
